Gangsterism In The 1920'S
Gangsterism In The 1920\'S The Roaring Twenties,; what a perfect aphorism. It was certainly roaring with music and dance, but it also was roaring with gangsters. In the aspect of gangsterism, the thirties were also roaring. Americans in this time period tolerated criminals, especially those involved in bootlegging. Bootlegging is the smuggling of illegal substances. Bootlegging could have possibly been tolerated because of the recent outlaw of alcohol during this time period, known as the Proh...

Black Boy
Black Boy One main point of the United States Constitution was missing from the Jim Crow South: equality.

Punishments included arrests, beatings, even lynchings were a ...

Animal Farm

The main targets at the brunt of this political satire are the society that was created in Russia after the Bolshevik Revolution of 1917, and the leaders involved in it. George Orwell successfully condemns these targets through satirical techniques such as irony, fable, and allegory. The immediate object of attack in Orwell\'s ...

JFK: WAS HIS ASSASSINATION INEVITABLE?
JFK: WAS HIS ASSASSINATION INEVITABLE? A popular misconception is that President John F. Kennedy\'s assassination was an isolated event perpetrated by one man.

Perhaps it is not as important to decide who it was that killed him, but w...
