Revolution in Cambodia
Revolution in Cambodia There is nothing unique about government-sponsored violence. There is, in fact, nothing especially unusual about widespread killing or even genocide. The rallying cry heard in the wake of World War II -- Never again! -- is a noble sentiment, and not a reflection of reality. Ask the Indonesians, or the Timorese, or the Palestinians, or the Salvadorans, or the Rwandans, or the Yugoslavs... or the Cambodians. The reign of the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia ranks as one of the mos...

From Oppressed Slaves to Champion Soldiers
From Oppressed Slaves to Champion Soldiers They [Black soldiers] will turn and run at the first sight of the enemy! (Emilio 10) This is just a small example of the doubt and hatred that was bestowed on the African American soldiers.

Despite deep prejudices and harsh criticisms from the white society, these men were true champions of patriotism. The cause of the Civil War w...

The Secrets of the Lusitania
The Secrets of the Lusitania The American owner of the ill-fated Lusitania is planning to explore and hopefully salvage the liner, sunk off the south-west coast of Ireland on May 7, 1915, killing 1,198 people.

And although there are striking similarities between the Lusitania and the Titanic, recently the subject of a major movie, Bemis believes that the Lusitania is a muc...

The Minor Post Exilic Prophets
The Minor Post Exilic Prophets Before the Babylonian exile, Biblical prophesy reached its highest point. Prophets such as Jeremiah and Ezekiel changed and molded the scope of Israelite religion. Their writings were intelligent, insightful, well developed, and contained a great spiritual meaning. Following the Babylonian exile, however, prophesy took a depressing downward turn. There are many post exilic prophets, yet their writings are usually short, mostly irrelevant, repetitive, and, for the m...

The Case Of The Elusive Car Salesman
The Case Of The Elusive Car Salesman I was pacing around Lexington, waiting for my local mechanic to finish the latest repairs on my 77 Chevy Impala. My name's Yesterday, Sam Yesterday. It was hot in Lexington, by that is not uncommon for mid-July. I'd had a good several months, and I was in good financial position for the first time since I bought that Impala back in 1977. That car had served me well, but lately it had been failing. Maybe it was time for a trade, I thought; so I walked over to...

Legalization of Abortion
Legalization of Abortion On January 22, 1973, the United States Supreme Court legalized abortion. When the it ruled that abortion was legal, the court not only gave women the right to choose but also gave the unborn babies a right to die. Since that day, millions upon millions of unborn children have been ripped apart, burned with saline solutions, and sucked from their mothers' wombs. With every abortion that occurs another inaudible scream from the unborn child is silenced and the rights of th...

Jews
Jews The enemy trapped the Jews in the city by building a wall around it. Foodstuffs could not be brought in: starvation and crowded conditions gave rise to disease, and epidemics spread among the populace. But surprisingly the Jews held on. Then the enemy massed troops outside the wall and brought out the latest in weaponry. They attacked, using fire to spread destruction. The Jews repelled the enemy a number of times. So savage was the resistance that the campaign to destroy the Jewish popula...

The World Bank
The World Bank Bureaucracy is one of the pillars of modern western society. Although this statement is debatable from many aspects, most would agree that, at the very least, our lives are greatly affected by bureaucracy. Bureaucracy is the 'pure form of rational organization' (Newson, Jan 11). Not only is it a method for achieving goals efficiently and effectively, but it is acclaimed as the most able strategy to meet objectives. The World Bank is a classic example of a bureaucratic organization...

D-day
D-day D-Day Introduction June 6, 1944 will be remembered for many reasons. Some may think of it as a success and some as a failure. The pages following this could be used to prove either one. The only sure thing that I can tell you about D-Day is this: D-Day, June 6, 1944 was the focal point of the greatest and most planned out invasion of all time. The allied invasion of France was long awaited and tactfully thought out. For months the allied forces of millions trained in Britain waiting for th...

Shakespeare's Macbeth
Shakespeare's Macbeth Shakespeare's Macbeth is set in medieval Scotland, and has been produced by many different directors in the 20th century. Roman Polanski directed the 1971 production of Macbeth. It is interpreted to be a blood-thirsty vicious 70s thriller, and accrues that Good always Prevails. However the 1996 production by Jeremy Freeston is expressed as a more subtle and delicate production that suggests readings such as Evil is the wrong way to build Social Status. Both the product...

ANTHONY KIMANI
ANTHONY KIMANI SECTION CODE: 0348 02/19/2004 THE BROADER PICTURE OF A GREAT LEGAL SYSTEM The U.S. legal system has undergone several gradual changes in development to date.

Alexander the Great
Alexander the Great By Drew Coy Spencerville Adventist Academy Alexander the Great is often said to be the greatest conqueror and best military leader to ever walk the face of the earth.

The Beginnings of a National Literary Tradition
The Beginnings of a National Literary Tradition Canadians throughout their history have been concerned over the status of their national literature. One of the major problems facing early Canadian writers was that the language and poetic conventions that they had inherited from the Old World were inadequate for the new scenery and conditions in which they now found themselves. Writers such as Susanna Moodie, Samuel Hearne, and Oliver Goldsmith were what I would consider Immigrant authors. Eve...

Reading a work of literature often makes a reader experience certain
Reading a work of literature often makes a reader experience certain feelings. These feeling differ with the content of the work, and are usually needed to perceive the author's ideas in the work. For example, Samuel Beckett augments a reader's understanding of Waiting For Godot by conveying a mood, (one which the characters in the play experience), to the reader. Similarly, a dominant mood is thrust upon a reader in Beowulf. These moods which are conveyed aid the author in conveying ideas to a...

I Just Want to be Happy

However, concentrating on the role of religion in constructing womens sex...

Shakespearean Tragedy
Shakespearean Tragedy The Shakespearean tragedy has a predictable pattern: It centers around the life of a hero, who is always someone of great standing, someone exceptional and unusual. There is a reverse of fortune and the hero falls from the position of man who has everything to a man who has less than nothing. The hero is always portrayed in the hyperbole and everything is in a grand scale. When he sacrifices he sacrifices everything and his reach always exceeds his grasp. This exaggeration ...

On the surface the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings seemed to be re
On the surface, the Anita Hill-Clarence Thomas hearings seemed to be relatively simple, wherein a man who was a candidate for one of the country's most prestigious positions was challenged by a former co-worker claiming sexual misconduct. It seemed at first to be a story that the American public was somewhat familiar with: politicians and prestigious men have been linked several times before with charges involving sexual misconduct. However, when we get a closer look at the situation, America w...

Opening Day
Opening Day The sun shines radiantly upon the towering stadium at the corners of Michigan and Trumball. Spring has arrived and erased the dreary, grey weather of winter. The old dilapidated stadium will come to life in a couple of hours to mark the beginning of an anticipated season. Brringg!

I jump into the back seat and thr...

03278985
03278985 Writing The Stage Essay Artaud likened the true theatre to the plague. What did he mean by this? The French, poet, actor and theorist, Antonin Artaud is recognised as one of the most radical influences on theatre in the 20th century. His main aim was to create a new type of theatre that would dismiss the idea of theatre as a mere attraction or entertainment. It instead would become a sort of communion between the audience and the actor and make theatre a live experience. Many of Artaud...

Joy Luck Club
Joy Luck Club I decided to watch the Joy Luck Club for this analysis paper for many different reasons. The main reason is that the actress Tamlyn Tomita who played Waverly graduated from Mount Lebanon High School, which was also my high school. I also heard a lot about this particular movie. I have heard great reviews and I have also heard very bad reviews saying that is was really confusing and long. I wanted to watch it and decide how it is in my own opinion. Watching this movie I saw a lot o...

Domestic Violence Amd Women
Domestic Violence Amd Women Domestic violence is a terrible problem that we all must face, not only the people who are victims. We need to stop this before the problem develops into anything bigger than it already is. The battered woman, it has been said, lives in a world of terror and her home is her prison (Berger, 1990, pg. 35). For many hundreds of years people weren't worried about domestic violence. In fact, a popular family journal, the Journal of Marriage and Family, did not include a si...

Three Female Characters in Greek Tragedies
Three Female Characters in Greek Tragedies Jim Creus Mrs. Baldi English IV 2/18/97 In the times of the ancient Greeks, women had an unpretentious role. They were expected to do take on the accepted role of a woman. In most cases, a woman's role is restricted to bearing young, raising children, and housework. In Sophocles' Oedipus the King, Antigone, and Medea, the dominant female characters impacted upon men with authority and political power. It is an inescapable fate that one of these characte...
