Question and answer
What problems arise from excessive ethnocentrism?
Pride in one's heritage is a positive characteristic. With the contemporary backlash by predominantly white Americans of European descent against illegal immigrants, "excessive ethnocentrism" is a flashpoint. [ For example, in Arizona, legislation has been passed prohibiting public school instruction that emphasizes ethnic heritage. This behavior historically recurs whenever there is a new wave
of immigrants in the United States. In the early 20th century, there was a backlash against Irish and Italian immigrants, for example. The short answer to your question is, in my opinion, very few, if any. I think that you are right about that. There has always been ethnocentrism throughout the world in all cultures and will continue to be forever and ever, or as long as the world exists. Doesn't seem to have been any major catastrophe yet. ]

User: Summarize Describe the area where the Aztecs built their capital city Tenochtitlán. How did the Aztecs adapt to this environment Weegy: The rainy season that the Aztecs experienced lasted from May through October. The amount of rainfall varied from an average of 450 mm in the north up to 1000 mm in the southern part of the valley. [ Rainfall, although plentiful throughout most of the valley, was often sporadic and could not be relied upon for the watering of the Aztec's crops. The Aztecs learned early that rain was unpredictable and taht irrigation systems had to be set up by to insure that their crops would not fail. The system of lakes within the valley make it a unique environment. These lakes are both saline and freshwater, giving the Aztecs variety in the resources available to them and presenting problems along the lines of farming. The resources that lakes provided the Aztecs with were a wider variety of fish and hunting areas at their disposal, greater opportunity for collecting plants that grew along and around the lakes, and the ability to perform certain types of intensive farming techniques. Lakes also were an excellant source of transportation for the Aztec people, they allowed them to easily transport agricultural proudcts and other items around the central area of their empire. Problems that arose because of the lakes were that the the swampy plain was subject to flooding, neccessitating water control and drainage projects (Blanton p 111). The Aztecs were able to overcome these problems by using forms of high-water table cultivation and through the drainage of low-lying areas. Prior to the Spanish invasion in the 1500's the Valley of Mexico was one of the most complex and productive agricultural areas in the western hemisphere. Volcanic elements in ... (More)
