  1. Banning public executions was hailed by the Daily Telegraph as an end to 'a fragment of medieval barbarism,' was this a reasonable assessment?

    However it has to be noted that although public executions were banned, condemned prisoners still suffered the same brutal death of hanging within prisons walls up until 1965.[2] This essay will assess the themes of how humane banning public executions was, the role of the crowd, the civility of public executions, individual cases such as the Edith Thompson case and miscarriages of justice. Firstly it is important to assess how humane the decision to ban public executions actually was. Various historians such as David Cooper and Leon Radzinowicz would agree with the Daily Telegraph's assessment that the abolishment of public

  2. What would you consider the most decisive or influential forces to bring down apartheid in South Africa?

    These groups were unable to join forces due to the lack of knowledge and understanding of the widespread nature of the regimes actions and the fading belief in their freedom, which thus dulled the effect of anti-apartheid movements. The bans issued upon the ANC and other large scale political parties along with their leaders further reinforced the isolation of groups and lack of coordinated ?struggle? (Callinicos, 1994). In an effort to overcome the limitations of this isolated resistance and boost black resistance actions, black consciousness became one of the defining movements.

  • Evaluate Ernesto "Ché" Guevara's impact on the success of the Cuban Revolution.

    "E Conclusion Ch� Guevara's importance and relevance in the Cuban Revolution was crucial. He provided a type of leadership which was lacking in Latin American movements of the sort. His style of leading by example and self-sacrifice was not even present in the likes of Fidel himself or his brother. This contribution undoubtedly makes him a unique addition to the forces and was important in controlling the revolution, making sure that it served its initial aims. His close relationship as friend and confidante of Castro was also important in the leanings of the tactics to guerrilla warfare and even more so after the war would end."

  • Do Great Men change the course of history? Discuss with reference to either Lenin or Stalin or Gorbachev

    "Conclusion How then are we to judge Stalin? Looking at him purely from a historical and a narcissistic point of view he was definitely one of if not the key person in 20th century history. . Born in obscurity, he rose to historic significance, a fallible human being of extraordinary qualities. He supervised the near-chaotic transformation of peasant Eurasia into an urban, industrialised superpower under unprecedented adversities. Though his achievements were at the cost of exorbitant sacrifice of human beings and natural resources, they were on a scale commensurate with the cruelty of two world wars. 1 Chris ward Stalins Russia pg23 2 www.janus.umd.edu/issues/sp07/Szpakowski_SocialisminOneCountry 3 Chris ward Stalins Russia pg35 4 Geoffrey Hosking A history of the soviet union pg150 5 L.Deutscher Stalin pg324 6 L.Deutscher Stalin pg466 7 L.Deutscher Stalin pg468 8 8 L.Deutscher Stalin pg468 9 L.Deutscher Stalin pg483"

  • "War in the trenches"? To what extent were Church and State opposed in the GDR?

    "In conclusion, I would agree with Althausen's depiction of the relationship between Church and State in the DDR as "war in the trenches". Neither side could reach an authentic compromise with the other on ideological grounds, but for political and pragmatic reasons neither could they maintain complete separation. The church could not go into "internal exile" without renouncing a key part of its mission to witness to society; neither could the SED eliminate a deeply-rooted institution so quickly, or do without the welfare services provided by the Church. Communism and Christianity made for uneasy bedfellows in the DDR, but the example is an instructive one for political theology, even if the SED state has now collapsed and the East German church is now decidedly a minority group.
