You can still see its concept at work every day whether on television, in magazines, billboards, internet, and even hear them while listening to the radio. The Coca Cola Company has been one of the most infamous companies to arrive in mainstream America. Founded in 1886, Coca Cola has invested approximately over 2 billion dollars each year into its advertisements. People from every generation and walks of life could remember Coca Cola’s, “Delicious and Refreshing” (Coca Cola, 1930) iconic statement, which could be found underneath its name and on its logos. At Christmas, everyone look forward to seeing all of the different advertisements on television or gaze upon important figures such as Santa Claus in numerous magazines and during the summertime, watching everyday people at the beach, having fun or eating at a barbeque with very the drink as their choice of beverage.

America in the 1920s and 1930s

...When many people study history and learn the mistakes from the past, it would be easier to able to understand the present. Nevertheless, it is not enough to simply study the events that have transpired. By changing the unfavorable events that led to despair and continuing the benefits to society, one can understand why they happen and better the future. In the United States in the early 1920s, a new stage appeared with different movements in the areas of politics, economics, society, culture, and foreign policy. By the events that led to the 1930s, new crazes had developed in many of these areas, while other areas remained in continuity. From the 1920s to the 1930, there were several factors that contributed to the changes in American society. The 1920s began shortly after in World War I when the United States and the Allies defeated the Germans in 1918. Many Americans were fed up with Woodrow Wilson, the 28th president from 1913 to 1921. The first election of the 1920s scoured Republican Warren G. Harding against Democrat James M. Cox. Cox supported Wilson and the League of Nations in the election. However, Harding won the election in a landslide, which was a sign of America¡¦s frustration with Wilson and his optimistic and liberal policies. The start of the new conservative era restored the power to the Republicans after the presidential election of the 1920. Harding made quite a few excellent appointments to his cabinet although he failed to demonstrate to have......

1930's Depression

...Study sources A,B,C,D,E & F and explain how : ‘The 1930’s was a time of depression, unemployment and poverty for the British people’ 1930’s Britain was heavily affected by an economic depression or in other words economic crash. Because of its old industries shutting down causing Britain to loose it’s trade markets to cheaper but higher quality goods by new industrial countries triggered by the wall street crash in the united states in 1929 which reduced the imports which were going towards Britain at the time effecting Britain with its industries to close down and the rate of unemployment to grow, also effecting other countries’ economies worldwide when its most powerful economy collapsed. Source A (Secondary Source) supports the interpretation because it presents us with a photograph of a book called ‘The Road to Wigan Pier’ written by George Orwell which presents us with a classic unemployment image of an unemployed man in Wigan leaning against the wall with his head down Portraying embarrassment and giving the reader an impression of unemployment and depression, in scruffy dirty clothes and clogs (Wooden Shoes) whiles the kids near him have holed shirts and shoes which also clearly represent poverty. However this photograph is not only presented to us in order to illustrate the author’s book but to portray the ‘Depressed Britain’ in the 1930’s through imagery.

1930's Fashion

...Amazing Manneh 11/13/09 1930s Fashion The glitz and glamour of the clothes we know of today are far more contrast than that of the 1930s.Usually the only time people ever saw the 1930s style were in videos or special occasions to reflect on those past attires. It was most influenced by the world’s most tragic economic depression of all time. To adjust to the economic setback, the motto was, “Use it up, wear it out, make it do, or do without.” High priced clothing like the French’s or Paris’ garments became what only the rich class could afford. While such clothing became too much for the middle class and the low class was out of the question. Fashion for the rich class of the 1930s became somewhat easier compared to the middle or low class, however still difficult in the depression. The rich class clothing of the 1930s consisted of the same detail as the middle, but with more genuine and authentic fabric. The contours of the female’s body were greatly revealed through the rich classes clothing and styles of fabric. The rich were usually flaunting off their elegant choices of clothing any time of the day. The depression brought them to their senses and started wearing everyday clothes that were comfortable but yet still sophisticated and chic, while saving their glamorous gowns for “a night out on the town”.

How Did Stalin Reinforce His Dictatorship in the 1930s?

...How Did Stalin Reinforce His Dictatorship in the 1930’s? During the 1930’s, Stalin engaged in a range of measures to bolster his personal control of the USSR. This included purging Russia of anyone who he considered a threat or disloyal, building a personality cult and the introduction of a new constitution for the USSR in 1936. In 1934, the use of purges were employed after the murder, most probably instructed by Stalin himself, of the leader of the Leningrad Communist Party, Kirov. The murder of Sergei Kirov was announced as part of a terrorist conspiracy involving Trotsky and was then used to arrest Zinoviev, who was given 10 years in prison, and Kamenev who received a 15 year sentence. This lead to an outbreak of purges by which anybody suspected of disloyalty was murdered, sent to prison camps, or put on public show trials at which they pleaded guilty to crimes that were not humanly possible. In reality, Kirov was most likely murdered by Stalin due to his higher levels of popularity and the incident at the 1934 part congress where he was tipped as a future leader. Kirov was also a critic of collectivisation and disagreed with Stalin’s style. The Communist party was the political party most damaged by the effects of these purges. 20% of the party was purged, accused of being “trostskyies”, and were arrested, shot or sentenced to hard labour. Stalin enforced these purges with the use of the emergency decrees, which gave him extra powers to the NKPD to pursue......

An Explanation of Why Churchill Found Himself in the Wilderness in the 1930s.

...An explanation of why Churchill found himself in the wilderness in the 1930s. The Conservative Party lost the General Election in the spring of 1929, as a result of this Winston Churchill stepped down as the Chancellor of the Exchequer. He had served in nearly every major British Cabinet post except two: Foreign Secretary and Prime Minister. Part of his unpopularity was due to political reasons; Churchill was never very popular with the Conservative Party’s rank and file or its leaders. There were also personal reasons which aided in his dislike by many. Many of his enemies considered him unsound and felt he lacked in his judgement. Churchill made the decision to wander into the political dessert; as a result the 1930s were referred to as his wilderness years. Churchill’s persistent attacks on the progression of the Indian constitution and his defence of Edward VIII earned him a public backlash. Mussolini was admired very much by Churchill and he had sympathized with Franco during the Spanish Civil War. He never offered up many ideas on the significant economic questions of the day such as unemployment, protection and recovery. Despite his growing unpopularity, Churchill took up the cause of resistance of Nazi Germany during the 1930s. There were many obstacles that were related to this and the British government was well aware of them; pacifist settlement after the First World War; belief in the League of Nations; sympathy for Germany’s desire to rewrite the treaty of......

The 1930's in Relation to of Mice and Men

...The 1930’s was a period of transformation in the political, legal, and social status of African Americans in the United States. Despite dramatic developments, many economic and demographic characteristics of African Americans at the end of the 1930’s were not that different from what they had been in the previous decades. It was for difficult for Blacks to make a living during the Great Depression. Living conditions were unreal and most people lived in extreme poverty. While these conditions affected all segments of society, African Americans were far worst off. Most of the country's Black population lived in rural areas and worked on farms owned by white landowners. For African-Americans, the depression was hard to distinguish when poverty was always a way of life. Living conditions became more horrendous when some landowners lost their properties during the Depression. However, there were many African-Americans who continued to make their living doing hard manual labor or working in dangerous areas such as in foundries, while others worked as domestic servants for whites. A smaller number worked for the railroads, steel mills, coal mines and school boards. There were some African-Americans who made fairly reasonable living operating small businesses. Around this time, the government began to get involved with the social statuses of African Americans. At the start of the decade and throughout most of his first term, neither President Franklin Roosevelt nor the Congress paid...
