    1858 words - 8 pages

    The term ‘postcolonial’ is relatively new in the school of geography, ‘from the late 1970s it became significant in more than just a chronological sense’ (Blunt, A (1994). ‘Postcolonialism deals with the effects of colonization on cultures and societies’ (Ashcroft et al., 1998:186).

    The Chinese have had a history of using rail links and other technological advances to integrate Xinjiang and Inner Mongolia with the rest of China. The purpose of these rail links was to facilitate the voluntary, and sometimes involuntary, migration of Han Chinese to these areas in order to strengthen Beijing’s control over the regions. China had harboured the goal of linking Qinghai province to the Tibetan Autonomous Region by rail since the early 1950s. At the time, although engineers and surveyors were sent to investigate the potential, both finance and the then-available technology pr

    Human communication is structurally complex while the animal communication is not. The former is conditioned by time and geography, the latter is not. For example, the dogs of all the counties have the same system of massage and symbols. Human beings, on the other hand, use a variety of symbols which differ from one nation or geographical region to another. Human language is much more acquired by effort and is the result of social interaction. Animal communication differs in this respect too. If a human child is kept away from human society for a long time, and is conditioned to live in the co

From the mechanical gear of Henrys Ford’s ideals, to the buzzing of modern day microchips – the transition is incredible. In the early 1920s, when Henry Ford's assembly line had dramatically increased the amount output, the economy and labour system were no longer the same as before.
