Abu Ghraib - Case of Lynndie England Term Paper

… Abu Ghraib - Case of Lynndie England

In 2005, a 22-year-old female reservist who had been activated to service in Operation Enduring Freedom, Lynndie England, admitted to seven charges of infraction and breaking of the United States Military's rules for handling prisoners of war under her charge as a United States Military prison guard at the now well-known site of Abu Ghraib, Iraq (Daily Post (Liverpool, England, 2005, p. 6). Long before this 22-year-old reservist had ever heard of a place called Abu Ghraib, the prison had already come to the attention of the international media as one of the places where Saddam Hussein had allegedly abused and tortured his own countrymen (the Nation, 2008, p. 3). Even with the prison's long history of abuse…. [read more]

Absurdism in the Plays of Peter Morris Essay

… But even these more straightforwardly realist dramas employ the philosophical underpinnings of absurdism. This is notable in The Age of Consent, published in 2002, which presents a nineteen-year-old boy, Timmy, who has been convicted of murdering a two-year-old when he himself was only nine or ten.

The assignment was: to make something beautiful. I don't know what they expected us to make. I'm making a fucking teddy bear." (Age of Consent, 14). The notion of a stuffed toy being manufactured by a child who was convicted for murdering another child is…. [read more]

War on Terror and Human Essay

… Among the techniques that were spelled out in the memo were, in hindsight, clearly indications of human rights violations. For example, one memo outlined approved tactics to use against suspected terrorists: "walling… a facial hold, a facial slap, cramped confinement… and the waterboard" (MacAskill, p. 1).

The waterboarding form of torture was described in detail in one of Bush's memos: "the individual is bound securely to an inclined bench, which is approximately four feet by seven feet. The individual's feet are generally elevated. A cloth is placed over the forehead and eyes. Water is then applied to the cloth in a controlled manner… produces the perception of 'suffocation and incipient panic'…" (MacAskill, p. 2).

As for Yoo, he believed that "…the candid approach would be…. [read more]

Anthropology Review and Critique: Gender Term Paper

… This again is the value of a book like this, giving worldly cultural perspective and knowledge to the student who lives in America.

NUMBER THREE: Articles dealing with male gender roles.

The essay by Gilbert H. Herdt discusses the role of males in the fascinating Third World culture of the Sambia mountain people in Papua New Guinea ("Rituals of Manhood: Male Initiation in Paupa New Guinea). Boys are removed from the nuclear family in the Sambia culture at seven to ten years of age, and kept in a "men's clubhouse" until marriage - because, as Herdt writes, "strict taboos based on beliefs about menstrual pollution" still keep boys and girls separate.

The uninitiated Westerner might, upon reading about "menstrual pollution," say well, don't these primitive…. [read more]
