Women in Colonial Latin America : a 6 page research paper which examines the role of women in colonial Latin America. The colonial world of Latin America was intrinsically different from that of North America and this difference had a tremendous impact on the women of Latin America at that time. Although North America was rich in natural resources, the natives of North America did not have the gold of the Incas or the Aztecs. Consequently, the Europeans that came to North America's shores came to colonize-they brought women with them. Those early Europeans, specifically the Spanish, that came to Latin America did so solely for the purposes of exploitation, not for colonization. Because of this, the Spanish conquerors typically did not bring women with them from Europe. The writer argues that the native women in colonial Latin America were viewed by Europeans as simply one more resources that they could exploit. Bibliography lists 7 sources. Womncol.wps

The Economy of Brazil: The economy in Brazil and much of Latin America is very near collapse, despite past political and economic gains in the region. The poor performances will result in more poverty and delayed economic growth. The primary responsibility for the economic condition lies with the political structure, however, the private sector has possessed the means to hedge against or even benefit from inflation through dollar accounts and overnight accounts. There is no support for change from either the general populace or from the business sector that would provide incentive for the political structure. Inflation has played a major role in the interaction between the economy and the political support for positive economic policies.

Political decisions, then and now, have negatively impacted well-intentioned economic plans seeking to improve the economic future of Brazil.

Collapse of the Mayan Civilization : The Mayans had a strong and complex civilization from A.D. 250 to A.D. 900. At the peak of their strength, between 800 and 900 A.D., this great empire suddenly collapsed. Archeologists have debated about the causes of the collapse; with overpopulation, disease, insect plagues, peasant revolts against the ruling classes (civil wars), and climate change being among the conditions theorized as being responsible. Warfare leading to the balkanization of the culture is said to have effected the fall as well. Recently, the discovery of a major volcanic eruption has increased the probability of weather playing a large role in the collapse. Beginning around 800 A.D. the Yucatan suffered a severe 200-year drought. It is likely that a combination of all of these influences came together to bring about the fall of the Mayan Empire. This 10 page paper examines the possible causes, with an emphasis on warfare and drought. Bibliography lists 12 sources. Maycoll.wps
