PAX ROMANA The Roman Empire controlled most of the Mediterranean area by 44 B.C. This was known as Pax Romana. Pax Romana was an era of relative tranquility in which Rome endured neither major civil wars, such as the perpetual bloodshed of the third century AD, nor serious invasions. This was a period of "moderation" initiated by Augustus and imitated by his successors. Conquest became less beneficial and the Emperors became content with the borders of the Empire and profiting from trade and commerce. This was a period of peace and expansion.
PAX ROMANA MAKE UP A SLOGAN FOR THE ROMAN EMPIRE THAT REPRESENTS ITS PUBLIC POLICY
THE JIM CROW SOUTH The Jim Crow Laws were state and local laws enacted in the Southern and border states of the United States and enforced between 1876 and 1965. They mandated "separate but equal" status for black Americans. In reality, this led to treatment and accommodations that were almost always inferior to those provided to white Americans. The Jim Crow period or the Jim Crow era refers to the time during which this practice occurred. The most important laws required that public schools, public places and public transportation, like trains and buses, have separate facilities for whites and blacks.
