It is clear that the British way of integrating Western culture within Indian society was more successful than the equivalent process involving the French in Algeria.In Algeria the French also brought about Western civilisation to some extent, creating schools and building cities as well as constructing hospitals, however they spent 162 years with almost constant violence.In addition both occupations were valuable building blocks in which to expand their empires; France into Africa and Great Britain into Asia.They were responsible for directly trying to impose Western beliefs and cultures on India much too soon in the occupation and too forcefully.However, both the French and British Empires did to differing extents manage to integrate W...

Britain seems to have suffered earlier and more completely the dissolution of the western empire than did her neighbours.Wacher J. S. (1975) The Towns of Roman Britain, London.(1975) “Roman mosaics in Britain before the fourth century”, in H. Stern, M. leGlay eds: La Mosaique Greco-Romaine, 269-90, Paris.The first thing to say is that the ending of Roman Britain is entirely comprehensible within the framework of the ending of the western empire.Disruptive was the collapse of the towns, and consequent upon that collapse the disappearance of the romanised economy and the society and culture that depended on that economic underpinning.

According to CNN, China’s defeat led to an invasion of Western culture, and on China’s doorstep, ‘barbarians’ lived in grand houses.This was particularly evident in China’s refusal to consider a mutually favourable balanced trade with western nations.Though Britain had traded with the Chinese for many years, China declined to establish any formal diplomatic contacts because it did not perceive Britain as equal (Rodzinski, 1984).The arrival of Western traders in China for the first time brought them in direct contact with a strange new world having an alien system of government.Britain was among the other Western “barbarians”.

This domination would not have been possible without the media, and the mass media too, to great extent is controlled by major western transnational corporations.When Pakistan was formed, it was thought that this would allow the Muslims to live freely and independently of any western or external influences, but sadly, this was not the case.With the increasing dominance of the English language the entire western culture too, takes up an imperialistic form.The language that is believed to be the dominant language today is the ‘English’ language, which obviously comes from the western culture.This has lead to shift in the buying behavior of consumers and hence also influencing the culture, since the two are very closely related.

As such, emphasis on total quality management is used as a feature of management by Chinese subsidiaries in the western world, including Britain (Chin & Pun 2002).China highly embraces a socialist structure of management, unlike the western countries.On the other hand, Britain is located in Western Europe.This backs the research by Hopkins, Nie and Hopkins (2004), who concluded that emphasis on quality management in the western countries like Britain remains to be a critical impediment to the entry and success of Chinese subsidiaries in the regions.Dahles, H & Wels, H 2002, Culture, organization and management in East Asia: Doing business in China, Nova Science Publishers, New York, NY Fan, Y 2000, ‘A classification of Chinese culture’, ...

This sense of duplicity inherent concerning queer theory and socio-political reality in the contemporary era has served to render queer theory a doctrine of continuing importance in western culture.As Naphy aptly suggests, the rate at which homosexuality has been integrated into mainstream culture should be judged within the much wider context of western civilisation over the past two thousand years as opposed to the forty years that have passed since the inception of the Sexual Offences Act in 1967.In addition there are – not surprisingly – critics from the straight mainstream culture who see queer theory as a barrier (rather than a facilitator) to a greater democratisation of sexuality in the contemporary era.In this way, post-structur...

Anthropologist Mary Douglas (1973) expands on this theory stating that there is no simple parallel between the supposedly ‘religious’ pre-industrial society and the Western World characterised by secularity.Berger used the term to describe a process ‘by which sectors of society and culture are removed from the domination of religious institutions and symbols.’ (Berger 1973) Wilson applied the term secularisation to ‘the process by which religious institutions, actions and consciousness lose their social significance.’ (Wilson 1982) Secularisation was not only used to illustrate the influence religion has on society, but also how it has been altered to deal with the changing values of society as it ceases to be the ‘cement’ of all social ...

There is a lot of speculation as to why the Industrial Revolution occurred first in Western Europe, especially in Britain.Rider, Christine (1995), ‘An Introduction to Economic History’ South Western .. Before this revolution, Britain was a quite different place to the one that exists today.The Industrial Revolution, which began in the mid-1700s first in Britain and later in Western Europe, is the most significant collection of technological, social, and economic changes in human history.A case in point is that in Friedrich Schiller’s ‘Letters upon the Aesthetical Education of Man’ (1795), argued that the machine was a threat to individual freedom and a destructive force on contemporary culture.The meaning of culture was changed drastica...

These is evident from paintings on the rock outcrops that depicts that traditional culture was environmental and societal supportive.Therefore incorporation of traditional cultural systems with Western science and technology will mean Western societies must re-establish and reconstruct the systems which is a contentious and fundamental issue.Despite the presence of harmony in culture and science there is contrasts and misconceptions within the Aboriginal community and science.In this regard, harmonizing the cultural values and western science will prove difficult (Diamond 1999) due to existing barriers like different world views, different power relationships to management, different criteria for proof and evidence of phenomena.Interna...

Very few systematic studies have been conducted by the southern scholars on cultural and ideological effects on western media on the audiences of the south (Thussu, 2006).One of the major issues of this theory was that it did not consider the role of the national elites, especially elites living in the developing countries (Thussu, 2006).This resulted in making a particular culture homogenous, that is the American popular culture, which is been mass produced (McPhail, 2009).It represents the experience of the western culture on the others.His view of modernity means that it is full of forces like the ‘dynamic and development forces’ which means that the Western cultures are being imposed on the Third world nations in order to modernise a...

Pop art included images from popular culture such as consumer goods, magazines and advertisements as opposed to more serious elitist culture art like abstract expressionism.In the early 1950s Britain was still escaping the austerity of the post-war years, and the British citizens were dubious about American popular culture.Therefore my answer to the question “is pop art a celebration or critique of consumer culture” is that in the beginnings consumerism was heavily welcomed and a great relief celebrated by many, but still with some sceptical artists stating that consuming was becoming a reliance and for obvious reasons people worry when they have to rely on things.It is a bold statement about Western culture and consumerism and is great ...

However it is debatable about how much of a child-centred society we have become as the experience of childhood differs across different sectors of western society such as class, gender and ethnicity.In western society up to the twentieth century children were put to work at what now seems the very young age of seven or eight years old this differs considerably from today's society where it is thought that children under ten years of age do not know the difference between right and wrong.This has been shown through the twentieth century as there has been the rise of the ideology of child development and the rise in children's legal rights.However even though this is totally unacceptable in modern western society still in many countries y...

France feared of a stronger Germany, so to settle these fears, the British came up with the plan of a Western Union, meaning that all countries would align against Germany if it ever became a threat.The overcome this issue, the French fears were to some extent appeased, as the centre of the industrial Ruhr was going to be controlled by the Western Allies, therefore Britain, France and the USA would have power over trade, foreign relations and economic questions.There was some conflict between the Western Allies though.Finally, the Prague Coup and the Berlin Blockade showed to America that there was no alternative than to defend Western Europe.While America supported integrated Western Europe, the USSR wanted to avoid partitioning Germany...
