  • A Separate Peace: The Dying Legacy - 1,345 words
    A Separate Peace: The Dying Legacy By early 1918 in Russia, the Bolsheviks controlled only the north-western area of the Russian Empire (Petrograd and Moscow) together with the areas between and around them. Various opposition groups were formed against the Bolsheviks, under the new Provisional Government. The provisional government had proposed elections for a new assembly in late 1917; Lenin had seen that the Bolsheviks must act before this democratically elected government convened, but once in power, he allowed the elections to proceed. In the November 1917 polls, Bolshevik candidates won just under 25 per cent of the vote, while the moderate socialists polled over 40 per cent. Lenin sen ...

  • Anthropology - 1,269 words
    Anthropology Transcending the Barriers "My primary interest is to explain something out there that impinges me, and I would sell my soul to the devil if I thought it would help." Eric Wolf, 1987. Eric Wolf's interest into the realm of anthropology emerged upon recognition of the theorist- imposed boundaries, encompassing both theories and subjects, which current and past anthropological scholars had constructed. These boundaries, Wolf believed, were a result of theorist tending to societies and cultures as fixed entitiesstatic, bounded and autonomous, rather then describing and interpreting societies within a state of constant change, ceaselessly vulnerable to external influence, and always ...

  • Constantine Brancusi - 1,565 words
    Constantine Brancusi Constantine Brancusi I found it very difficult to find information on Constantine Brancusi in hard copy, therefore, you will see at the end of my paper that all of my sources are websites. The little information I did locate on the artist was very, very little. Therefore, I combined the small amount of information with some research I found on artists that were strongly influenced by Brancusi. Brancusi's imprint on contemporary sculptural practice ranges from the dissemination of furniture-oriented sculpture and the emerging topos of architectural folly to new paradigms for public art. At the same time many postwar artists engaging in a dialogue with his legacy have read ...

  • Feminists Andd Sociology Of Family - 1,188 words
    Feminists andd Sociology of Family ASSESS THE CONTRIBUTION OF FEMINISTS TO THE SOCIOLOGY OF THE FAMILY Feminists have played a major part in the ideology of the family, as they provide an alternative view to the traditional sociology of the family. There are many different types of feminists; the main ones are Radical feminists, Marxist feminist and liberal feminists. Although they are categorised separately, they fundamentally believe in the same idea, which is the dominant functionalist assumptions are inaccurate and should therefore be challenged. Functionalists believe that in the family, the role of the woman is functional when she plays a necessary 'expressive' role, providing care and ...

    ... entially more effective since its effects on the recruit remained hidden and relatively unobservable. Whereas the rhetoric of a bruised body once spoke volumes, one's subjectivity remains much easier to control and effectively silence. The relationship between a Drill Sergeant and his recruit is unique, to say the least. It is, as Foucault notes, an uninterrupted, constant coercionwhich [makes] possible the meticulous control of the operations of the [recruits'] body, which [assures] the constant subjection of its forces and imposed upon them a relation of docility-utility (137). One had to remain utterly passive and try to remain hidden while attempting to master a whole new set of fore ...

  • International Law Is The Body Of Legal Rules That Apply Between Sovereign States And Such Other Entities As Have Been Granted - 1,656 words
    International law is the body of legal rules that apply between sovereign states and such other entities as have been granted international personality (status acknowledged by the international community). The rules of international law are of a normative character, that is, they prescribe towards conduct, and are potentially designed for authoritative interpretation by an international judicial authority and by being capable of enforcement by the application of external sanctions. The International Court of Justice is the principal judicial organ of the United Nations, which succeeded the Permanent Court of International Justice after World War II. Article 92 of the charter of the United Na ...

  • Lyndon Johnsons Effect Of American Foriegn Policy Towards Isreal - 2,215 words
    Lyndon Johnsons Effect Of American Foriegn Policy Towards Isreal The following is a discussion of American foreign policy towards Israel, and the Middle East. In it I will show that Lyndon Johnson changed the regional position and opinion of the United Stated by adapting a pro Israeli stance, categorized by excusing many unadvised forceful actions taken by Israel. It will be shown how Johnsons response to the outbreak of the 1967 War was the major factor in the change. These changes took the first steps in developing the close friendship between America and Israel. Other factors will be discussed. The cold war had a major effect on policy decisions. This will be shown through a historical ac ...

  • Panopticisim - 1,667 words
    Panopticisim Civilizations by their very nature depend upon the acceptance of certain principals. In general terms, the people govern themselves according to laws. Laws are, of course, made by the government to designate for the for the whole of society. However, there is little fact that people don't, as a whole, do things for the greater good of society: merely for their own personal gain. Knowledge and power go hand in hand, but whose hand is it? Regardless from where a person comes from, one is always under constant surveillance by someone in society, which in return affects everyone's individual actions and reactions. To better define this governing dilemma, Michel Foucault wrote an ess ...

  • The Role Of The Media In Australia - 1,538 words
    The Role Of The Media (In Australia) Select one of the three major themes in Australian thinking about media,communication and information identified by Osborne & Lewis (1995) and explore the ideas that underpin it. Explain when and where these ideas emerged in history and say something about why they have had an ongoing influence in this country. Osborne and Lewis state that "[a] preeminent theme in Australian thinking about the use of communication is the extent to which it has been viewed as a form of control" . There has been concern in recent times of the enormous power communication holds as an agent of societal control. This is due to a number of factors, such the 'media mogul' domina ...

  • The Statutory Definition Of Pornography - 2,603 words
    ... nception of harm is acceptable in a liberal framework. A liberal framework may demand individuated harms, and the fact that our existing legal framework can work outside that limitation simply demonstrates that liberalism is not at the root of our legal framework's evolving notion of harm. Thus, the ordinance may still be seen by liberals as incoherent, or worse, to invoke an illegitimate conception of non-individuated rights and afford state enforced remedies for illegitimate purposes. This liberal argument may be theoretically tenable, and thus the "bleak" picture I painted may still apply insofar as we favour a liberal legal framework. Furthermore, the powerful liberal arguments conce ...

Elements discussed are elite interests, justification for violence, fo ...
