Discuss the causes and consequences of Latin American Revolutions
Lack of respect for Creoles
Towards the end of the 18th century, Spanish colonies owned a flourishing rank of
Creoles who were people of the European origin who were born in a new world (Selbin, 2018).
Nevertheless, Spain selected native Spaniards to hold significant colonial administrations. For
instance, in the court of Caracas, there was no Venezuelan who was selected from the year 1786
up to 1810. During this time, four creoles and ten Spaniards from the regions served. This did not
auger well with the influential creoles who perceived that they were ignored.
Spain weakened in power
According to Bulliet, Crossley, Headrick, Hirsch & Johnson (2018), in the year 1788,
Spain's competent leader (Charles III) died and was succeeded by his son. The son was
indecisive, weak, and usually busy with hunting, giving his ministers freedom to rum the
territory. With a weak ruler and the country's army tied up, the existence of Spain in the new
world declined, and this made the creoles to feel more ignored as opposed to any time. After the
Spanish naval forces were badly defeated in 1805 at the fight of Trafalgar, the ability of Spain to
control its colonies lessened (Selbin, 2018). In 1808 when Britain launched an attack on Buenos
Aires, Spain could not defend it, and local militias were compelled to suffice.
Americans and not Spaniards
In the colonies, there was a rising sense of not being part of Spain. The variations were
cultural and usually took the shape of huge pride in the area that a Creole came from. At the end
of the 18th century, a visiting minister Alexander Humboldt realized that the local people felt



good to be addressed as Americans as opposed to Spaniards (Selbin, 2018). However, the
Spanish administrators, as well as newcomers without fail, treated the creoles with disregard, and
this further expanded the social gap amongst them. According to Bulliet, Crossley, Headrick,
Hirsch & Johnson (2018), the biggest consequence of Latin American Revolutions wars was
national sovereignty and freedom for the Spanish colonies such as Colombia, Ecuador,
Venezuela, Bolivia, Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Uruguay, and Argentina.

Land sales
Immediately after the revolutions wars, administrations sold land in order to raise funds. Only
the upper class or the creoles were able to purchase these lands since many of the pennisulares
had gone to (Bulliet et al., 2018).This implied that much of the land was under the ownership of
the elite populace.
Immediately after the revolutions wars, the existing cash crop economy carried on but this time
trade was never limited to the mother state and the former colonies of Spain now were free to
trade with USA as well as Britain and they allowed them to establish companies (Bulliet et al.,
2018). Whenever the nations failed to pay their loans, the lending nations took over the
2. Discuss the threats to Mexico sovereignty from foreign powers after independence?
Mexico is a big nation that is ranked position 15 in the universe. The country has plenty
of natural resources and land, which produces various kinds of crops. To be precise, the country



is the biggest producer of silver, and its cultivable land is as big as the entire United Kingdom.
Based on this, many foreign nations tried to acquire the mentioned resources for their gains. For
instance, USA robbed Mexico around half of its territory in the hunt for its Manifest Destiny
(Bulliet et al., 2018). On the other hand, France tried to put into place a marionette regime in
Mexico to stop the rise of the USA as a world power and also make use of mineral deposits in
the North of Mexico (King, 2018).

On the other hand, the Mexican administration is centralized. State administrations
largely rely on Mexico City for revenue. Additionally, the city of Mexico is a hub of Mexico's
political, social as well as economic institutions. It is home to the Mexican entertainment, pop
culture education, and industry (King, 2018). Even though governors are elected officially by
voters, the ruling candidates for governorships are normally appointed by the president. The
power was exploited until 1989 (Bulliet et al., 2018). Mexico fought a war with the Americans
and lost. Afterward, America took close to half of Mexico's territory. Mexican outskirt laws were
never taken into considerations by Americans from various states.

The monetary, social, and political rights were controlled by racially grouped
arrangements of blood, which was bias to the Spanish legacy (Bulliet et al., 2018). Napoleon's
attack on Spain, whereby he supplanted the existing ruler with his sibling started wars of
freedom in Latin America. On the other hand, there were transformations of the political and
social structure which were enhanced by the profound monetary emergency as well as the
Bourbon changes which brought about inconvenience to the Creole (Bulliet et al., 2018). On the
other hand, the autonomy development of the people of Mexico was faced by some phases of



changes as the pioneers were either executed or detained by strengths which were die-hard to

3. Discuss the connection between the women's rights movement the abolition of
slavery in America?
The major connection between the two is that ladies or rather women turned out to be
supportive of abolition. Abolitionists spent much time giving speeches on the evils of slavery
while the women rights movement spent much of their time campaigning about the rights of
women. Additionally, women abolitionist spent much of their time talking of the bond between
slave women and white women, calling them sisters (Bulliet et al., 2018). On the other hand, the
women rights movement spent their time talking about how women were equal to men. The
abolitionist talked of the horrors the labor women slaves dealt with with a feeling that women
could do what men could do. When the civil war ended, many women had time in their hands as
there was no more abolitionist cause and by that, both the abolitionist and women rights
members merged behind suffrage.
There were several progressive movements which were present during the pre-civil war
times. The women rights movement, as well as abolition of the slave trade, was very important
(NA, 2016). The movements intertwined as most of the women who spear headed the early
abolition took leadership positions in the women rights as well as suffrage movements.
Moreover, the women rights movement embraced the arguments for quality as well as human
rights that were used in the "abolition of slave trade movement" to their lives and requested for
equal treatment. Additionally, there was division in the abolition movement on the roles of
women, and if they shall be inferior gender or if it was good for women to take administrative



responsibilities in the movement (NA, 2016).
Whereas the women rights movement that existed in the pre-civil times had limited
victories, it prepared the groundwork that was set for the 20th century as pertains feminism as
well as women rights. When there erupted a civil war, the leading women rights advocates
resolution to put to the forefront the anti-slavery movement with ambitions that it will clear the
way for the women's suffrage to take place shortly afterward (NA, 2016). Women thought that
dedicating to the northern anti-slavery reason would attract attention to the need for
constitutional equity on the grounds of gender and race.
4. Define the concept of Nationalism? What was significant about the unification of
Germany and Italy?

Nationalism refers to a political belief system which hassles enrollment of individuals in
a country (Kohn, 2017). During the 19th century, nationalism was a very big persuasive thought
which comprised of divisions such as civic, liberal, ethnic among others. The concept of
nationalism might be structured into different groups, namely; civic, liberal, ethnic, and also
cultural as the concept's definition keeps on varying (Bulliet et al., 2018). Even though
civilization has had a behavior of organizing itself in a shared identity, the concept of
nationalism is usually identified as...

Really great stuff, couldn't ask for more.
