This is a 25 slide, highly animated, power point presentations on the Pre & Post & Post World Eras - The Rise of Totalitarian States. Each of the presentation slides are editable so you can change it to fit your individual needs.
There were various causes existing in the world that contributed to the growth of totalitarian regimes in various countries in the early 20th century. Those included:
1. The democratic governments established after the World War I failed to solve the social, economic and political problems facing their countries in the post-war period. Their failure was fully exploited to establish dictatorial regimes.
2. The world wide economic depression of 1929-32 caused enormous hardship and suffering to the people and gave rise to a spirit of frustration, despondency and despair among the people. The people were naturally allured by the leaders who promised them a bright future and rendered them willing obedience.
3. The failure of the League of Nations to check aggression and preserve world peace also greatly contributed to the rise of totalitarian regimes. Japan, Italy, Germany etc. committed aggression with impunity and the League of Nations failed to take any action against them.
Communism still rules Russia but the Totalitarian rule of the likes of Joseph Stalin no longer exist. The Russians lost an estimated 24 million people during the war and an unknown number under the rule of Stalin. Faccism no longer rules Italy. Mussolini was publicly executed by the Italian people helping bring an end to their participation in World War II.
Japan surrendered shortly after the United States dropped the second of 2 atomic bombs on 2 key cities, forcing the Emperor to surrender. Japan is rules by a constitutional monarchy. The Emperor has only ceremonial powers.
Germany suffered and the Nazis suffered a crushing defeat at the hands of the Allies to bring World War II to a close. Germany is ruled by a democratic, federal, parliamentary republic.
