Tradition and Innovation: Reflections on Politics

by Tuck Newport

Individual members of life forms as diverse as dogs, fish and bacteria all display distinctive individual behavior patterns (i.e., "personalities"). These have evolved to maximize the odds that some members of a species will survive regardless of what happens around them. Behavior conducive to survival and reproduction in one situation often fails in another. Hence the need in every population group for a wide spectrum of behavior patterns. These variations recur, embodied in different individuals, generation after generation. The same evolutionary imperative produces the human behavioral diversity that maximizes our odds of survival as a species. Understanding political behavior, as distinct from engaging in partisanship, requires viewing politics with an eye not only for conflicting inte...

Under a Lion Sun: Days of Joy and Sorrow in Old Calabria

by Michael Caputo

Join the author on a journey back through time to his beloved town in Calabria, in Southern Italy. Accompany him through a painful mental journey to the fifties and sixties, as he was growing up in a location which could be simultaneously a blissful heaven and a brutal hell.
In this book you will meet very loving people whose whole existence was self-sacrifice, and others who had no conscience and did the unthinkable without a hint of guilt.

Chilling Investigations Of Some Our Histories Most Unfamiliar True Crime Stories

at $4.99. Read on your PC, Mac, smart phone, tablet or Kindle device.

Conviction is a very important part of providing justice. When a crime has been committed, it is essential for the perpetrator to be punished. In that way, although the family of the victims won’t always be able to make sense of what happened, they will still understand that nobody is above the law.

Publicizing the criminal’s modus operandi is sometimes good - the citizens will be well aware of their tactics and they can take better care of themselves. On the other hand, it can also be bad, because “would be” criminals and seri...

The 9/11 attack, continuous wars in the Middle-East & major terrorist incidents every few weeks.

What the heck is going on! - Are you looking for an answer?

Many of us are becoming aware of a growing global problem with national economies and terrorism, but some believe we are being led down this path by powerful people determined to destroy our free society in favour of their own greed. So, is this conspiracy nonsense?

Malamud and Spanier at Oregon State University

by Barry Roberts Greer

Academic literary study has been severed for a long time now from literature, which consequently separated literature from reality, reduced literature to an object of examination that taught nothing about life. Malamud and Spanier at Oregon State reconnects literature and life and does so with layer upon layer of irony, but not deliberate irony. The irony just happens to be present at Oregon State, a college when Bernard Malamud, literary giant and comp dog, fled back east just before A New Life saw print and embarrassed the cow college that changed its name to university as if doing so would diminish the absurdity of having writers generate the stuff the literary (alleged) scholars made a living reading. So the OSU Department of English was the Department of Reading where writers were s...

Common Core Standards and World War II: A Literary Veteran's Day Observance

by Pat Scales

President Dwight D. Eisenhower, a five-star general and commander of the Allied Forces in Europe during World War II, established a committee in 1954 to plan a Veterans Day observance. This day honors all veterans of the United States and is held each year on November 11 with a somber ceremony at Arlington National Cemetery. A wreath is placed on the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier and followed by a parade of colors. In 2015, the United States and the world will mark the 70th anniversary of the end of World War II. Victory in Europe occurred on May 8, 1945, but the official end of the war came when Japan surrendered to the United States on August 15, 1945. Some students may have family members who remember World War II, but most only know the hardships both at home and in foreign war zones thr...

The Ninth Amendment: Key to Understanding the Bill of Rights

by Duane L. Ostler

The Ninth Amendment is the key to a proper understanding of rights in the United States. The founders created the Ninth Amendment to protect unlisted natural law rights as they were understood in their day. This amendment was never intended to allow future generations to create new rights. Rather, it was to safeguard the morality and natural rights of the founding generation. Unfortunately this understanding has been lost, and modern judges and scholars usually ignore this amendment, or misinterpret it. Indeed, the Supreme Court has rather strangely created new rights under the 14th Amendment's "due process" clause. This book calls for courts to return to the founders' intent regarding the Ninth Amendment. If they do so, confusion over such issues as abortion and gay marriage will simply d...

A History of Male Psychological Disorders in Britain, 1945-1980 (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Alison Haggett

This book is open access under a CC BY license.Statistically, women appear to suffer more frequently from depressive and anxiety disorders, featuring more regularly in primary care figures for consultations, diagnoses and prescriptions for psychotropic medication. This has been consistently so throughout the post-war period with current figures suggesting that women are approximately twice more likely to suffer from affective disorders than men. However, this book suggests that the statistical landscape reveals only part of the story. Currently, 75 per cent of suicides are among men, and this trend can also be traced back historically to data that suggests this has been the case since the beginning of the twentieth-century. This book suggests that male psychological illness was in fact no ...

A History of Self-Harm in Britain: A Genealogy of Cutting and Overdosing (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Chris Millard

This book is open access under a CC BY license and is the first account of self-harming behaviour in its proper historical and political context. The rise of self-cutting and overdosing in the 20th century is linked to the sweeping changes in mental and physical health, and wider political context. The welfare state, social work, Second World War, closure of the asylums, even the legalization of suicide, are all implicated in the prominence of self harm in Britain. The rise of 'overdosing as a cry for help' is linked to the integration of mental and physical healthcare, the NHS, and the change in the law on suicide and attempted suicide. The shift from overdosing to self-cutting as the most prominent 'self-damaging' behaviour is also explained, linked to changes in hospital organization an...

Then I went home for the weekend. And he was there. Sitting on the couch chatting to my dad. Turns out he was more than just a stranger. Turns out that my one night stand was about to cause a whole heap of trouble. Turns out that it never just stops with one night.

Fungal Disease in Britain and the United States 1850-2000: Mycoses and Modernity (Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History)

by A. Homei and M. Worboys

This book is open access under a CC BY license. The grand narrative of twentieth-century medicine is the conquering of acute infectious diseases and the rise in chronic, degenerative diseases. The history of fungal infections does not fit this picture; indeed, it runs against it - this book charts the path of fungal infections from the mid nineteenth century to the dawn of the twenty-first century, both in Britain and the United States. It examines how fungal infections became more prevalent and serious over the century, a rise that was linked to the increased incidence of chronic diseases and to social, technological and medical 'progress'. In 1900, conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush were minor, external and mostly chronic conditions  irritating, but mostly self-limit...

Dissecting the Criminal Corpse: Staging Post-Execution Punishment in Early Modern England (Palgrave Historical...

by Elizabeth T. Hurren

Those convicted of homicide were hanged on the public gallows before being dissected under the Murder Act in Georgian England. Yet, from 1752, whether criminals actually died on the hanging tree or in the dissection room remained a medical mystery in early modern society. Dissecting the Criminal Corpse takes issue with the historical cliché of corpses dangling from the hangman’s rope in crime studies. Some convicted murderers did survive execution in early modern England. Establishing medical death in the heart-lungs-brain was a physical enigma.
