American History Final Exam Stages Term Paper

… Turner lived at a time before a large middle class existed or the U.S. had become a consumer society, so he naturally thought of pioneers as farmers and ranchers who moved the agricultural frontier to the West. In his era, even though the country was rapidly industrializing, the majority of people still lived on farms and in small towns. For this reason and was always the main goal of Manifest Destiny, while industrial capitalism required a different type of imperialism that acquired markets and raw materials overseas rather than colonies. Eastern capitalists since the time of Alexander Hamilton and the early Federalists and Whigs had always had a very limited interest in expanding the agrarian frontier, and even less in the expansion of slavery. They…. [read more]

USA as Policeman Thesis

… (B) Three aspects of U.S. history since 1865 that led to the U.S.'s rise as a world super-power policeman would entail an examination of (B-1) the Spanish-American War and the subsequent U.S. annexation of the Philippines, Puerto Rico, and other territories;

(B-2) the establishment of the Cold War balance of power in the latter half of the 20th century, in which America's military and financial clout was used to fight proxy wars with the Soviets in places like Korea, Vietnam, Cuba, Grenada, and Afghanistan; and (B-3) the collapse of the Soviet Union followed rapidly by 9/11 and the War on Terror, in which the Cold War-era military-industrial complex was repurposed for an enemy without a state, and thus a "war" that defies all established 20th….

American Civics Essay

… American Civics

The American population is undergoing a number of dramatic shifts. The U.S. population is becoming more diverse in terms of race. The growth in the Latino population, in particular, constitutes a huge part of this increased diversity. The Latino population is set to double its 1990 size by the year 2015.

The American population is getting older. The median age of the population will steadily increase from 34.0 in 1994 to 35.5 in 2000. This increasing median age is driven by the aging of the population born during the Baby Boom after World War II, from 1946-1964. As the Baby Boomers age, the median age of the American population will rise.

The American population growth rate is slowing. Despite the large increases in…. [read more]

Sociology Definition of Concept/Theory Essay

… Unlike the stories emerging in the contemporary media about the unattainability of the American Dream for many individuals, this personal story celebrates the concept of meritocracy and keeps the myth anchored in the public consciousness. Even if the American Dream is unattainable by many, it is still attainable by some.

Rose "Bubby" Silver was my great-great-aunt. She came alone to the United States from Eastern Europe on a ship with countless other names and faces from different countries. She spoke no English and did not know anyone when she arrived. The only thing that Rose was told to do was to seek out a man who reportedly hired women like her in a tailoring shop in Brooklyn.

When Rose first started working for the tailor,…. [read more]

American Anthropology Jaguars Research Paper

… The great importance of crocodilians to the Olmec people probably also stems from the fact that they were a major source of protein for these people. Crocodilians were even traded as food, ornamental material, or religious symbols. It is no wonder that crocodilians were deified, as part of the purpose of religion is an attempt to control and explain one's environment. Crocodilians posed a very real threat to human life in Mesoamerica. It is thus no shocking discovery that they were honored and worshipped for their power.

Stylistically, it can be argued that the features of the "were-jaguar," such its feathery eyebrows, are actually the crests above the eyes of crocodilians and the V-shaped cleft on the head is "derived from the cleft between a…. [read more]

Civil War and Grant Term Paper

… They are a responsibility giving much more pleasure than anxiety."

As a man, Grant was remarkably free of personal animosity. He was never vindictive In his entire life, he spoke disparagingly of very few, and they usually had done something to deserve it. He was certainly not fond of General Hooker or General McClernand, and in his political life, Sumner and President Andrew Johnson were two men he despised. On a personal level, Grant disliked rare meat, eating poultry (though he ate turkey constantly in the White House), liars, cheats, dancing, "immorality" and he generally avoided off-color stories. His Secretary of State said that the General had a great aversion for adulterers, though he certainly surrounded himself with plenty while in the army.

History of Rosicrucian Order Thesis

… History Of the Rosicrucian Order

Despite being one of the oldest esoteric societies, the Rosicrucian Order remains one of the most mysterious and least well-known of the various groups that arose in Europe over the course of the second millennium. Although Rosicrucianism was one of the key influences on the development of Freemasonry, and, as will be discussed in the findings chapter of this study, has played an important role in the development of Western culture and society, its history, symbols, and legacy have frequently been overshadowed by more popular alchemical and metaphysical movements. For example, while most Americans know that many of the founding fathers were Freemasons, fewer likely know that the first governor of Connecticut was deeply interested in Rosicrucianism from an early….

Abstract Expressionist Painting Artistic Research Paper

… [8: Ibid. ]

The following piece is an excellent example of Rothko's reductionist forms. The piece is entitied "White, Red on Yellow" and is an excellent example of reductivism and the use of color to create a dramatic impact. It is a simplistic looking painting upon first glance. However, these paintings were not meant to be viewed in passing. One is supposed to sit and contemplate them, to see if an emotion arose As the viewer continues to gaze at the painting, they begin to notice the fabulous subtelties of the painting that are not apparent at first glance or if the painting is viewed from far away. One begins to notice tha the top square is not white, but is instead muted tones of…. [read more]

Southwest History Susan Shelby Magoffin Term Paper

… Santa Fe was quiet at the time, with only the sound of marching heard at the time. The new Mexicans could have welcomed the American forces for promise of protection they offered against the Texans. But only few of them quietly received the arriving American troops and the suspicion was that resistance was silenced by Governor Manuel Armijo who was said to have been paid by an American agent to turn New Mexico over peacefully. In any case, a military government under General Kearny was set up in Santa Fe and promised to honor the civil and religious rights of the New Mexicans. He kept his word but peace did not last long. Susan Shelby Magoffin recorded her observation of the leadership and behavior of…. [read more]

Comparative History of Huey P. Long and Maurice Duplessis Thesis

… ¶ … History of Huey P. Long and Maurice Duplessis

The political quest for power can take many forms. Leaders use certain tools to gain power. However, different leaders use similar tools differently. Leaders must often choose whether they are for the people or for the establishment. Big, business and large institutions are considered to be in opposition to the people. Although many have attempted to seek a balance of power between these two entities, a true partnership between the establishment and the common people is yet to be achieved. It appears that taking power from one means giving power to the other. Politicians are forced to choose sides under the current social arrangement between big business and the general population.

To explore this issue…. [read more]

Different Preferences in Learning Between American and French Learners in a Multinational Corporate Setting Dissertation

… ¶ … Preferences in Learning between American and French Learners in a Multinational Corporate Setting

The way training is delivered in a corporate environment has a tremendous effect on results. This study investigates the role of culture in the learning styles of adult French and American students enrolled in online training programs at an international university. Using Kolb's learning style inventory, the learning style preferences of respondents in both cultural groups will be classified as divergers, convergers, accommodators, and assimilators, reflecting their general tendencies toward learning environments as conceptualized by Kolb (1985). The assumption is that Americans prefer to learn from action-oriented methods and are more comfortable learning from activities that are not job related, such as role plays and games, than do their French….

Nursing Assessment Taking the History Essay

… However, the Craig (2007) article does provide some useful basic information concerning what information should be taken in the patient history and in general the article is well-written and direct. Some of the references to alcohol may not apply outside the UK; however, most of the information is relevant for nurses, social workers, psychologists, physicians, and other health care workers who are interested in taking complete patient histories. However, as mentioned above the article does has some minor inadequacies and supplementing the information in this article with information in the references provided in this paper will result in a more complete understanding of what is required in the history taking process. Craig's (2007) recommendations could be adopted into most practices, but again as mentioned above…. [read more]

Japanese-American Biopharmaceutical Industry Term Paper

… The objective of such harmonization is a more economical use of human, animal and material resources and the elimination of any unnecessary delays in the global development and availability of new pharmaceuticals while maintaining safeguards on quality, safety and efficacy, and sustaining regulatory obligations to protect public health.

Industrialization After U.S. Civil War Essay

… " (Alger, XI)

I adduce Horatio Alger's novels to suggest what the official public mythology was concerning child labor: that it was the only way to "rise in the world." But like all mythology, these stories had no real basis in reality: the purpose that these stories served was to dull the public's sensitivity to what was an appalling condition for children forced into work. However, the reality was difficult to ignore. The general attitude of the public by the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries was summarized succinctly by the Christian Socialist poet Sarah Cleghorn, who summed up attitudes against child labor in a four-line poem, usually entitled "The Golf Links":

The golf links lie so near the mill

Cyprus Problem Ancient History Establishment Dissertation

… This agreement forestalled actual admission as a British possession for a time; Cyprus remained under Turkish control while the British occupied the island for military purposes. The British performed the duty of protectorate nation until 1914 when, at the advent of the First World War, the island was "formally annexed" (U.S. State Department, 2011) by the United Kingdom. The island officially became a crown colony in 1925. During this time period many ethnic Turkish inhabitants left Cyprus for Turkey.

After the Second World War, there was great turmoil regarding who was to gain possession of the island. There remained a large number of Greek Cypriots who were the earliest inhabitants of the island, a smaller number of Turkish Cypriots who had remained during English occupation,…. [read more]

Music and Dance in Indian Term Paper

… As censorship doesn't allow the actors to kiss (or worse...!) it is dance that expresses what it's all about.

Very obvious pelvis movements are quite common and the overall impression is not really elegant. But really fast! No wonder: after about 2 or 3 dance steps the scene is cut - no problem for the actors to hop around like mad. There are also many costume changes through a dance number. Unlike western film musicals where song and dance are more or less a part of the story, this effort is not always made in Indian productions. Just a few seconds ago the lovers were standing alone by a temple - the next moment they find themselves in the park of a palace, surrounded by…. [read more]

Dually Diagnosed African-American and Latino Adolescents Term Paper

… Dually Diagnosed African-American and Latino adolescents


Abuse of substances on the part of adolescents has grown to be a national concern in the United States and has sparked many studies in this area in the last decade. Great challenges are presented for the clinician and the substance abuse treatment system in developing and applying appropriate and effective treatment for these adolescents. Studies have shown that of the adolescents who have substance abuse disorders, many of them also have mental health illness a combination of which is termed 'dual diagnoses or co-occurring disorders. The combination of these two disorders often have devastating impacts on the adolescent, their family and…. [read more]

Direct to Consumer Advertising History Term Paper


The National Institute for Health Care Management, a nonprofit watchdog agency, estimated that expenditures in pharmaceutical advertising in the U.S. grew from an estimated $55 million in 1991 to $2.5 billion in 2001. While the numbers seem exponential, the Institute points out that the ads represented merely 16% of the entire budget for drug promotions in 2001. A historic perception perpetuated by the drug industry is that costs are driven by expenditures in research and development. This has been considered a valid argument, as advances in drug research are indeed beneficial to humanity. However, recent examination of the industry's expenditures indicates that marketing (34.4%), not R&D (13.7%), comprise the lion's share of the industry's operating expenditures.

Economic History of America Research Paper

… ¶ … United States Central Bank

The economic history of the United States from the time since the Reconstruction period of the Civil War has certainly varied through epochs of both prosperity and of despair. Analysis of the trends which influenced and have been made manifest during this time period indicate the interrelation of several events, people, agencies and structures that have had a significant impact on the economics of this country. The chronological development of the United States' monetary history began well before the Civil War, and has always revolved around the controversy surrounding the development of a central bank. Although the charter for the Bank of the United States (originally conceived by Alexander Hamilton in 1701) had expired in 1837 largely due to…. [read more]

African-American Women in New York Term Paper

Out of the women living in the United States, two out of three women living with HIV / AIDS during 2004 were African-American, with another 15% being Hispanic (Buchanan & Hatcher, 2007). "For African-American women, the result has been devastating, according to the founding president and CEO of the National Black Leadership Commission on AIDS" (Fears, 2005, p. A01).

Diversity in Today's Society Research Paper

… Blackface: The Use of Whites to Portray Non-Whites in Popular Culture

As cultural norms have evolved, one of the most interesting things that minority groups have done is to reclaim things that have typically been evocative of racial stereotypes and use them for empowerment. There are many examples in popular culture, with perhaps the most obvious and controversial one being the reclamation of the word "nigger" by African-Americans in certain forms of popular culture, particularly hip-hop music. What is seen as liberating to some is seen as continuation of centuries of racial subjugation by others, so that the African-American community is starkly divided about that issue. Not all vestiges of racist practices are considered quite as offensive and controversial in modern times. However, one that…. [read more]

Wind Won't Know Me Book Case Study

… Wind Won't Know My Name

The Wind Won't Know Me: A History of the Navajo-Hopi Land Dispute. Even though ethno-historian, author and Indian researcher David Brugge referred to Emily Benedek's handling of the enormous volume of material she tackled as "superficial," Brugge acknowledges that in Benedek's personal observations she "succeed remarkably well" (Brugge, 1994). Brugge has justification -- or perhaps an axe to grind? -- for his editorial viewpoint since he too has written a book on the Navajo-Hopi conflict. Brugge complains that in her book Benedek does not handle information written by others well at all and he is chagrined that she identifies "virtually every author as an anthropologist," even though the author she alludes to might be a journalist, a historian, or just….

The second chapter of the book covers the Las Cruces and La Mesilla, demonstrating how each city, developed in the consequences of the U.S.-Mexican War and situated on the opposite areas of the new borders, reflected a certain vision of public belongings.

The third and fourth chapter of the book has a discussion about two features of a routine life in the Mesilla valley: gender and religion.

The last two chapters of the book have a discussion about how Hispanic and Euro-American elites developed conversations of a racially united local New Mexican identity starting in the final decades of the 19th century.

Home Exam Globalization Term Paper

… Other measures proposed by these institutions included devaluation of the local currency, which would increase exports of raw material to the North.

One particular example of such troubled relations is the case of Argentina towards the end of the twentieth century. As a result of heavy debt and its currency being pegged to the American dollar, the Argentine economy crashed in the later 1990s as its exports became much more expensive compared to those of its neighbors. The IMF stepped in to suggest economic reforms and liberalization of the economic system. In 2002, the country was able to regain the confidence of foreign investors by negotiating arrangements for paying off its huge amounts of debt. The role of the IMF during this period was criticized…. [read more]

Marxism History and Ideology. An Ideology Indicates Term Paper

… Marxism History and Ideology.

An Ideology indicates a structure of ideas that try to elucidate reality. Ideologies are devices since the reality is sometimes very intricate to be comprehended. In almost all the cases they represent a preconception and cater to the objectives of a specific group. Ideologies are seen to be relatively as a contemporary occurrence, in relation to the political and economic circumstances of the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Marxism is considered to be a very intricate economic ideology, devised on the basis of an historical analysis underlying the concept of class struggle. (Adams, Ideology)

Atomic Bomb and Nuclear Power Term Paper

… "Even when the planned cleanup has been carried out, billions of dollars and many years will be needed to address areas that are not in the cleanup plan." (Unavailable, 2000)

And the military was still up to their dirty work testing the might and killing power of the source. "The United States sets off first underground nuclear test in a mountain tunnel in the remote desert 100 miles from Las Vegas." (Schoenherr, 2003) Because the potential threat of misuse was so strong, the International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) was formed. The International Atomic Energy Agency was created to promote peaceful uses of nuclear energy. They also had the mission of providing safeguards and inspection systems to guarantee that nuclear materials were not used for military…. [read more]

Americanization: Phantom Menace Essay

… The cultural alternative during the Cold War was clearly not appealing either: it does not follow that the lack of military rivals to America renders its culture irresistible, as the presence of a former military rival left little cultural trace on those countries which now complain of encroaching Americanism.

Vicente Verdu is at least honest enough to admit that, when he complains about Americanization, he is actually complaining about something else. He concludes his screed by asking "Is this Americanization sufficiently appreciated? Probably not, because how can it be distinguished from globalization? And how can we distinguish it from ourselves?" (Verdu 2002). In other words, Verdu thinks it impossible to distinguish Americanization from globalization, just as earlier he had made it clear that what he…. [read more]

As the society grew and evolved, its focus on healthcare increased and it has eventually come to a situation in which the life expectancy at birth doubled or even tripled. Macau is for instance the country with the highest life expectancy at birth with 84.36 years. It is followed by Andorra with 82.51 years, Japan with 82.12 years and Singapore with 81.98 years. At the other end sit Angola with 38.20 years, Zambia with 38.63 years, Lesotho with 40.38 years and Mozambique with 41.18 years (Central Intelligence Agency, 2010).
