The Soviet economy and those of its eastern and central European satellites were in serious trouble. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the US became the only super power. The new world came into effect as a result of the End of the Bipolar world. Another change that affected this era was the coming down of the Berlin wall. There was great hope for this era because there weren’t two superpowers trying to defeat one another. With two superpowers the world would’ve been in great danger because of the opposing forces toward each other. The fear of another World War cease because of the fact that there was only one superpower. The fulfillment of this great hope was problematic because the superpower felt as if they were untouchable.

differences between the shia and sunni
Differences between the Shia and Sunni

Ever since the origins of Islam, the Sunnis and Shiites have had many differences and have dominated different regions. The Shia make up 15% of all Muslims and the Sunni make up 85% of all Muslims. The Shia believe that Islam's leader should be a descendant of Mohammad but the Sunni believe their leaders should be chosen through consensus, which is an agreement made among the people. Another difference between the Shia and Sunni Moslems is that the Shia believe that qualified religious leaders have the authority to interpret the Islamic law but the Sunni believe that the Islamic law was codified and closed in the 10th century and they are very conservative and strict.

The Ottoman Empire, which is present day Turkey and has a population of 80% Sunni Moslems, was dominated by the Sunni Moslems. It is also present day Iraq which has a population of 60-65% Shia and 32-37% Sunni but the Sunni dominated the government and economy because of Saddam Hussein. The Ottoman Empire was started and ruled by the Sunni, which began with Osman Bey, then Mehmed II ruled and conquered the Byzantine Empire, and Suleyman the Magnificent reigned and continued the expansion of the Ottoman Empire.

The Safavid Empire, which is present day Iran and has a population of 89% Shia Moslems, was dominated by the Shia. The Safavid Empire was founded by Shah Ismail, who took control of Iran. As a result of these differences between the Sunni and Shia, many conflicts have broken out, including the Iran-Iraq war and the invasion of the Safavid Empire by the Ottomans.

President Kennedy called for a naval quarantine and demanded removal of the missiles

Soviets agreed to remove missiles

This was a major cold war victory for the US

vietnam war
Vietnam War

Struggle between communist North Vietnam and democratic South Vietnam

US feared if Vietnam fell to communism all other Southeast Asian nations would fall (Domino Theory)

Failed attempts in Vietnam hurt American morale


The Cold War was a period of tensions between communist and democratic nations following WWII. Although the Cold war was not a full scale war there were many smaller conflicts such as the Korean War, Cuban Missile Crisis, and Vietnam War that contributed to the overall competition. The Korean War was a struggle between communist North Korea and Democratic South Korea in which the US assisted South Korea in their efforts to fight off Communist rule. The war ended with and armistice allowing both areas to remain under their original control . The Cuban Missile Crisis arose after an unsuccessful invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs by the US. Although the Russian initially aided Cuba by supplying missiles aimed at the US, they withdrew the missiles after a naval quarantine issued by the US. The Vietnam War also involved a conflict between northern communist and southern democrats. The US supported South Vietnam for fear of the domino effect of communism in southeast Asia. However, US efforts were unsuccessful and wounded American morale toward military intervention. All of these conflicts arose in an effort to make either communism or democracy the major political influence in the world. The US was successful in containing communism without causing another world war. With the collapse of the Soviet empire the US emerged as the only large power in the world and more cooperative relations developed among nations.

Significance Continued…Example

Imperialism is the policy of extending the rule of a nation over foreign countries. It was implemented through trade, investment, and business activities that enabled imperial powers to profit from subdued societies. Motives for imperialism were economic, political, and cultural. Advancements in transportation such as steamships, communications, and warfare technology aided countries exert their influence on other countries. Combined with their own spurring motivations, imperialism was spread quickly throughout the world. The European colonization of Africa, Japan’s domination of China, and the U.S.’s control over its natural borders are all examples of imperialism. Through this trend, the increasing interconnectedness of the world and globalization were made possible.
