From Relative Isolation to Global Involvement
At the time of the Spanish American War the United States went from relative isolation to increased global involvement because of 1. The spirit of the American people captured by the idea of the frontier and, 2. The belief it was the duty of America to maintain peace of all nations. The consequences of this increased global involvement on American Society was 3. The clashing views of the imperialist and anti-imperialist parties.
America first took a step towards greater world involvement due to 1. The effects of the frontier on the American spirit. In 1893 Fredrick Jackson Turner delivered the idea of "The Significance of the Frontier in American History," to a gathering of historians. According to Turner, the frontier was "the line of most rapid Americanization."1 The idea of the frontier as explained by Turner looks at the constant movement westward by the European's who came to America. It speaks of the time from the first arrival until the time when there is no longer a frontier line, and how the nation developed as the movement westward continued. "Little by little he transforms the wilderness, but the outcome is not the old Europe, not simply the development of Germanic germs, any more than the first phenomenon was a case of reversion to the Germanic mark. The fact is, that here is a new product that is American. At first, the frontier was the Atlantic coast. It...

Ask Americans how they feel about the world, said Michael Medved, and they wind up with a paradox. By a staggering majority, people tell pollsters that they disapprove of both Congress and the President, and two out of three say the US is headed “in the wrong direction”. Yet when asked about their lives, “Americans express overwhelming contentment and dazzling confidence.” A recent Harris pole found that nine out of ten people are satisfied “with the life they lead,” with 56% choosing the highest category “very satisfied.” Almost everyone expects life to...

Topic: THE COMPARISON OF THE ORGANIZATIONAL SOCIAL AND TECHNICAL SYSTEM IN PAINTER'S CASE STUDY AND ITS OBJECTIVE PRINCIPLES: Can applying a socio-technical perspective improve the odds of success?
Student Name: Franklin Nnaemeka Okoye
Course Code: ITM 524
Course Name: Foundations of Information Technology Management

INTRODUCTION
A socio-technical system (STS) is a social system operating on a technical base (Whitworth, Brian with Ahmad, Adnan (2014)). Social ideas like freedom seem far removed from computer code but computing today is social. That technology designers aren't ready, have no precedent or don't recognize social needs is irrelevant. Like a baby being born, online society is pushing forward, ready or not. And like new parents, socio-technical designers are causing it, whether they want to or not. As the World Wide Web's creator observes: "... technologists cannot simply leave the social and ethical questions to other people, because the technology directly affects these matters -- (Berners-Lee, 2000). The online reality is that how people interact in socio-technical systems depends entirely on the software and its design takes the shape of the social system of that organization.
In organizational development, the term socio-technical systems describes an approach to complex organizational work design...
