From reading the book and comparing it to class lectures, we are able to learn multiple things about slavery. Like many slaves, Celia was treated like an inanimate object. She was bought and sold, raped and impregnated just when she was a young teenage girl. There was only a certain amount of abuse she could take until she started to resist. First claiming to be sick and pregnant, Celia eventually full on rebelled and killed her aging master, Robert Newsom.
Gluck completed her undergraduate work at Shimer College (the Great Books College of Chicago) in Illinois and completed advanced degree work at UCLA and University of California, Berkeley. Additional publications include ‘Women’s Words the Feminist Practice of Oral History (1991) and ‘An American Feminist in Palestine: The Intifada Years’ (1994). Gluck’s Rosie the Riveter Revisited: Women, The War, and Social Change is a collection of detailed oral histories that not only chronicle the lives of the ‘Rosie the Riveters’ (working-women during the WWII years), but encompasses the pre-war and post-war years of each interviewee. Gluck intertwines these interviews in such a way that she presents a somewhat comprehensive understanding of the daily routines of these ‘Rosie the Riveters.’ In addition to the personal experience aspect of her interviews, Gluck also directly busts the misrepresented mentality of women laying down tools and happily giving up their jobs to the returning military men. Gluck argues that the ‘Rosie’ era was bigger than the players involved and that it had direct effects on women’s accepted skill sets and ‘place’ within the working sector over the 3 decades following the end of WWII.

Glass Kristina Snow is suffering from an addiction to meth and she struggles with it until she gives in and the “monster,” as she refers to it, takes her under again and she slowly loses everything, including her family and her baby. The book ends with her and her boyfriend being thrown into jail for possession, transportation, and intent to distribute meth. She also finds out she is pregnant with his baby. The tone the author uses for Kr.istina’s voice is very scattered from the beginning, when she is suffering from withdrawal, when she is high, and when she is crashing by the end of the novel. Glass is the 2nd novel in the Crank trilogy by Ellen Hopkins.
The second example of classical conditioning is a law and order svu show I watched a few days ago.

She has volunteered for many rehabilitation programs and will be getting her associate degree from a local community college (LA Times, 2010). This type of story reminds me that a person still needs to be punished but also look at their backgrounds and home life.
