Describe The Social Problems In England During The Time Of Industrialisation

Most families were very poor. Even their children had to work and they often died because the jobs were very hard and dangerous. Men often did not became a job and so they were forced to steal. It was the only way they saw to get bread for them and their families. But if they were seen, they were charged and the judges were very hard.

The Rainbow

The Rainbow is a 1915 novel by British author D.H. Lawrence. It follows three generations of the Brangwen family, particularly focusing on the sexual dynamics of, and relations between, the characters. Lawrence's frank treatment of sexual desire and the power plays within relationships as a natural and even spiritual force of life, though perhaps tame by modern standards, caused The Rainbow to be prosecuted in an obscenity trial in late 1915, as a result of which all copies were seized and burnt. After this ban it was unavailable in Britain for 11 years, although editions were available in... vezi detalii


Take It Easy

Every culture has it s tradition. Each tradition is different and usually doesn t cause problems in its own country. But what happens when Asian tradition is transplanted to a western county like England?

Good examples of Asian families living in Great Britain can be seen in the New British Cinema, in movies like Bend it like Beckham with an Indian family and in East is East with a Pakistani family. In these families we have a rigid structure: the fathe... vezi detalii

Society, Class and Individuality Outlined în Arts în The 1920s

Many journalists and sociologists noted that culture in the 1920s was losing its social structure. After a decade of intense progressive reform, morality, and self-righteousness, the 1920s saw a restless culture, spearheaded by America's youth rebelling against the moral restrictions of past generations. Some of the cultural events which characterized that period were the following: a. The Sexual Revolution. Young students of the 1920s began to challenge the traditional notions of proper behavior by throwing raucous parties, drinking illegal liquor and dancing new, sexually suggestive st... vezi detalii

Canadian Short Stories

Around the year 1000 Vikings landed on the eastern coast of Canada, nearly five hundred years before the official discovery of the New World by Columbus. A reconstruction of a settlement of thatched houses in Newfoundland is a reminder of these first European settlers on the North American continent. Five years later, in 1497, the Italian Giovanni Caboto (John Cabot) who was in the employ of the English King Henry VII, travelled round the coast of what later became the Atlantic Provinces and claimed them for England. In the 1630s, Jacques Cartier claimed the area around what was to become Q... vezi detalii


Marketing în Japan

Marketing in Japan Japan has been an attractive destination for foreign business, and progressive businesses are aware that they need a presence there. Some of the walls that have protected Japan against foreign entry have been crumbling away, thus making Japan more accessible to foreign business. By 1998, only about 7 percent of Japan's GDP was related to imports, one of the few countries with a figure in single digits and the lowest figure amongst industrialized nations. With such a high GDP and a deregulating economy, this presents a huge potential, for American businesses. The options f... vezi detalii
