"The book's aim is to provoke my fellow historians to greater self-consciousness about the nature of our work," Novick wrote of his motivation (17). It is obvious that Novick is going to try to convince historians that they should be more self-critical of their work and thought. Set in in this argument is
Maximiliano Nino Mrs. Davis English Expository 3 March 2015 The Downfall of Big Brother The novel 1984, written by George Orwell, leaves the reader with an important question in mind. How did the government of Big Brother come to an end? Many will have theories of how such thing happened, but all theories can easily be narrowed down to four possibilities. In the novel, Emmanuel Goldstein explains with his book that the downfall of a government can be due to either: the takeover by a more powerful force, the inefficiency of the government to rule which causes the masses to revolt, the rising of the middle class which overthrows the higher classes and takes over, or the government losing interest in ruling and leaving power. However, the most ideal theory for how Big Brother came to an end is that the middle class, also known as the Outer Party, overthrew the government themselves and took over the power.
As a writer and journalist, Kershaw has composed two biographies, one being Jack London and the other Blood and Champagne: The Life and Times of Robert Capa. Kershaw’s other literary works are The Bedford Boys, The Few, and The Longest Winter. Many critics feel that Kershaw has a talent for capturing the raw emotion of war and his skills as a journalist help him find the information that puts the story’s details into place. Alex Kershaw writes the story, The Bedford Boys, in a way that puts the horror and tragedy of D-Day into a soft, revealing story. Born in Britain, Kershaw feels that those men who died in Normandy were fighting for rights of his own and he feels great pride in the accomplishments of those men.
The political maxim of this story is that it is stating that instead of wasting your time being angry and trying to “get even” with others that you think have done you wrong, use your time wisely 4.”The purpose of the war room was not just to respond to Republican attacks... it was to respond to them fast, even before they were broadcasted or published, when the lead of the srory was still rolling around in the reporter’s mind...” This quote was spoken by George Stephanopoulos when he was working for Bill Clinton four years after November 8th, 1988 the defeat of Dukakis by Bush. It is basically stating that their main goal is to stop any attack on the reputation of the candidate
Jeremy Soto HIST 7602-U50 Book Overview: Over Here by David M. Kennedy This book by Kennedy dives deep into the events that led to World War I and shows the culture of the American people during very tumultuous times. Secrets of legal organized militias are exposed along with desperate attempts by the Government to control and manipulate the minds of Americans through the Sedition act and the introduction of citizen spies. Kennedy is very descriptive about this war in general and sets the tone for this entire scene in the prologue. The references made to Orwell, which can also be made today, tell how deeply involved the federal government was in the lives of everyday people. Many have questioned President Wilson’s motives and reasoning
The key period is the weeks after Gore conceded the 2000 election and before the inauguration, when the Clintons knew they would be preparing for a Bush presidency. The abuses in that brief period are well-known now: from numerous pardons, including some to campaign donors; to the Clintons' claiming some White House furniture as personal rather than state-owned. Several of the "abuses" claimed by Olson went beyond politics and into policy: from a last-minute change in the EPA definition of allowed arsenic levels; to making the United State a signatory to the International Criminal Court. The reason this book paints a nicer picture than Hell To Pay is because it moves beyond politics to policy. In that regard, it's a detailed description of what Clinton did, mostly by Executive Order, in anticipation of four years of a Bush presidency undoing Clinton's 8-year legacy.

(6 points) 4. Winston Churchill, who served as Britain's prime minister, once said: "Many forms of government have been tried, and will be tried in this world of sin and woe. No one pretends that democracy is perfect or all-wise. Indeed, it has been said that democracy is the worst form of government except all those other forms that have been tried from time and time." What do you think he meant by this?
On May 11, 1973 Senator Proxmire, Vice President Agnew, and a few others have criticized the press about the allegations made about the Watergate scandals. One journalist in particular was accused of false accusations, Mr. John Dean. Mr. Dean reported about the Watergate scandals calling it was a cover up and president Nixon knew about what was going on. Most newspaper editorials backed up Dean saying that journalist’s job is to report the whole story and not just half of the story. Allegations acquired saying that Dean planned it all, it was a self-serving tale and that Dean wanted minimal criminal charges and maximum leverage in immunity (Jones & Company,
