Women Historians United States Historian Arthur Schlesinger Term Paper

… Women Historians

United States historian Arthur Schlesinger stated that historians' silence about women made it seem that half of the American population had not had any impact on the country's history. "Any consideration of woman's part in American history must include the protracted struggle of the sex for larger rights and opportunities, a story that in itself is one of the noblest chapters in the history of American democracy," he wrote in 1935.

Because of the male domination of history, and the lack of women writers, many events and people of the time were forgotten and received little or no recognition for their efforts.1 However, what if the situation was different? What if women historians did have the opportunity to be on par with their…. [read more]

Economy of Colonial America Term Paper

… " Using this formula, and plugging the math into 1980 dollars, per capita income for "free" colonists in 1650 was $572; for 1720 it was $826; and for 1774 it rose to $1,043, according to McCusker's research.

Roosevelt's New Deal Term Paper

… Franklin Delano Roosevelt's New Deal

Eminent scholarship and critical historical reviews to the contrary notwithstanding, there was little about the New Deal that could be called "conservative," unless one looks at the Merriam-Webster Online definition of "conservative" as a noun, letter "b" under "2" ("a cautious or discreet person"); and from that concludes that FDR was "cautious" not to allow America to slip into another Depression - hence, the New Deal.

But in fact, the New Deal was, without doubt, a revolutionary series of programs, simply because of the impressive number of innovative, bold initiatives - never before passed by Congress in such quantities - it created. What was the New Deal?

A few of the successful programs that were part of the New Deal…. [read more]

For voters, this highest office of authority and operations has required a man who is on top of his game, physically and mentally fit, in order to bear the heavy burdens of the office and weighty-decisions that he must make on behalf of the American people. To this end, there exists an industry, an army, of image makers, men and women trained in the skillful art of public image making, and who work hard to ensure that the image in the public mind and eye of….

Sun Trust Bank vs. Houghton Term Paper

… These media constantly resort to parodies, like "The Wind Done Gone." The New York Publishing House stated that one of its literary treasures, "The Lord of the Rings" by JRR Tolkien, was the object of a parody in the Harvard lampoon version, "Bored of the Rings."

Other critics did not think that Randall's case was that big because it was not the first time a black author criticized the conditions of the blacks in the South. In 1967, Margaret Walker wrote the very successful novel, "Jubilee" the synopsis of which was quaintly very close to that of Mitchell's, as can be inferred in this blurb that was then written about it:

Daughter of the while plantation owner and his black mistress, the heroine…. [read more]

When Maria Halpin's alcoholism seemed to threaten the boy's well being (Harper, 2001), Cleveland saw to it that she was placed in a sort of half-way house, not an insane asylum, and that the boy was placed in an orphanage, where he was soon adopted by a wealthy couple. The other stories were shown to be false (Harper, 2001). The diligently hardworking governor had no time, much less inclination, to spend his evenings on the seedy side of town (Harper, 2001)."

Much to the dismay of the Republican Party the…. [read more]

CBS was able to get a young producer-director-actor named Orson Welles to host one of its dramas, the Mercury Theatre On the Air. It only lasted five months, but it was the most famous production in radio history.

NBC introduced Americans to soap operas on the air around the same time and by 1930 there were roughly 38 soaps broadcasting on a daily basis.
