Ii. Dünya Savaşı Yıllarında Almanya'nın Türkiye'ye Baskısı Ve Savaşın İçerisine Çekme Gayretleri/The Compulsion Of Germany On Turkey During The World War Ii And Its Efforts To Draw Turkey Into The War, 2010 Selcuk University, Turkey
Ii. Dünya Savaşı Yıllarında Almanya'nın Türkiye'ye Baskısı Ve Savaşın İçerisine Çekme Gayretleri/The Compulsion Of Germany On Turkey During The World War Ii And Its Efforts To Draw Turkey Into The War, Osman Akandere, Hasan Ali Polat
Hasan Ali POLAT
Both Axis Powers and Allied Powers tried to draw Turkey into the war during the World War II. Allied Powers struggled so much to include Turkey in their own rank at the beginning of the war. In that period, Germany wanted Turkey to remain impartial. However, Turkey signed Treaty of Triple Alliance with France and England to feel secure so that it aimed to prevent any possible threat from the Allied Powers. During the World War II, Germany declared war against Greece and Yugoslavia on 6 April 1941 and soon arrived at the border of Turkey and Greece after invading ...

Excesses Of The Super Bowl, 2010 University of Central Florida
Excesses Of The Super Bowl, Richard C. Crepeau
On Sport and Society
From its modest beginnings in 1966 at the AFL-NFL Championship Game in Los Angeles down to Super Bowl XLIV, it has become increasingly apparent that Super Sunday has grown exponentially and in the process has become a bloated monster. Over the past quarter century or more Super Sunday has illustrated the ability of a sporting event to offer a distorted and exaggerated version of social reality and social values in America and the Super Bowl has done this on a grand, glorious, and obscene scale.
Athletes In Confessional Mode, 2010 University of Central Florida
Athletes In Confessional Mode, Richard C. Crepeau
On Sport and Society
What is it about the media, and by implication, the public, that we seem to require a public confessional from our fallen heroes and icons? As I watched some of the Mark McGwire interview with Bob Costas I wondered if it had started with McGwire looking at the floor and saying, "Forgive me Bobby, for I have sinned." I trust it did not, even though it might have added to the ambiance.
Biography Cast In Irony: Caveats, Stylization, And Indeterminacy In The Biographical History Plays Of Tom Stoppard And Michael Frayn, 2010 University of Colorado at Boulder
Biography Cast In Irony: Caveats, Stylization, And Indeterminacy In The Biographical History Plays Of Tom Stoppard And Michael Frayn, Christopher Shonka
Theatre and Dance Graduate Theses & Dissertations
This study examines Tom Stoppard and Michael Frayn‘s incorporation of epistemological themes related to the limits of historical knowledge within their recent biography-based plays. The primary works that are analyzed are Stoppard‘s The Invention of Love (1997) and The Coast of Utopia trilogy (2002), and Frayn‘s Copenhagen (1998), Democracy (2003), and Afterlife (2008). In these plays, caveats, or warnings, that illustrate sources of historical indeterminacy are combined with theatrical stylizations that overtly suggest the authors‘ processes of interpretation and revisionism through an ironic distancing. These processes are analyzed and then placed in a broader context by comparing ...

Unlocked Books: Manuscripts Of Learned Magic In The Medieval Libraries Of Central Europe (Review), 2010 Iowa State University
Unlocked Books: Manuscripts Of Learned Magic In The Medieval Libraries Of Central Europe (Review), Michael D. Bailey
Magic in the medieval past is often seen through the eyes of its opponents, through trial records, inquisitorial texts, denunciatory sermons, and theological [End Page 232] treatises explaining and condemning the demonic nature of virtually all magical rites. Yet there is another way to approach at least elite, learned magic in Europe’s medieval period, namely through the texts that literate practitioners of those forms of magic have left scattered through libraries across the continent. This method of studying magic is not new, but has undergone significant development in recent years, with Richard Kieckhefer, Claire Fanger, Frank Klaassen, and Sophie ...
Witch Hunts: From Salem To Guantanamo Bay (Review), 2010 Iowa State University
Witch Hunts: From Salem To Guantanamo Bay (Review), Michael D. Bailey
The purpose of this odd book is to argue that, in the wake of the 9/11 terrorist attacks, and the fear and extraordinary governmental responses they have generated, the modern Western world, and particularly the United States of America, is on the verge of (though not yet embroiled in) a new era of witch hunts. The modern malefactors are, obviously, supposed terrorists rather than supposed witches. Their means of bringing about death and destruction are guns, bombs, and biological devices, not spells and incantations. Yet Rapley argues over the course of twenty breathless chapters that a number of characteristics ...
Hindutva And Anti-Muslim Communal Violence In India Under The Bharatiya Janata Party (1990-2010), 2010 Claremont McKenna College
Hindutva And Anti-Muslim Communal Violence In India Under The Bharatiya Janata Party (1990-2010), Elaisha Nandrajog
CMC Senior Theses
On May 16, 1998, under the directives of the Hindu nationalist Bharatiya Janata Party (BJP)-led coalition, the Indian government detonated three nuclear bombs in the Rajasthan desert, near a site called Pokhran.1 If the name of India’s inter-ballistic missile, Agni, the god of fire in the Vedic tradition, is inscribed in antiquity, its symbolism in 1998 was entirely new, reflecting the rise of a political party that emblematizes a chauvinistic, majoritarian stance.2 To celebrate India’s accomplishment, the Vishva Hindu Parishad (VHP), a sister organization of the BJP, ordered the construction of a temple dedicated to ...
The Rise Of Public Sector Unionism In Detroit, 1947-1967, 2010 Wayne State University
The Rise Of Public Sector Unionism In Detroit, 1947-1967, Louis Eugene Jones
Wayne State University Dissertations
In 1947, the Michigan Legislature passed into law the Hutchinson Act banning strikes of state and local workers. The law provided for the termination of striking public sector workers but did not require state and local agencies to bargain with public employees or their representatives. It even allowed for fines and prison sentences for non public sector workers who influenced public sector workers to strike. The law forced public sector unions into an untenable state of "collective begging." Indeed, it was often referred to as punitive and draconian. 18 years later, the Michigan Legislature passed and the governor signed into ...
Values In Transition: The Chiricahua Apache From 1886-1914, 2010 UMKC Schoolof Law
Values In Transition: The Chiricahua Apache From 1886-1914, John W. Ragsdale Jr.
American Indian Law Review
Law confirms but seldom determines the course of a society. Values and beliefs, instead, are the true polestars, incrementally implemented by the laws, customs, and policies. The Chiricahua Apache, a tribal society of hunters, gatherers, and raiders in the mountains and deserts of the Southwest, were squeezed between the growing populations and economies of the United States and Mexico. Raiding brought response, reprisal, and ultimately confinement at the loathsome San Carlos Reservation. Though most Chiricahua submitted to the beginnings of assimilation, a number of the hardiest and least malleable did not. Periodic breakouts, wild raids through New Mexico and Arizona ...
The Age Of Aquarius: The Reorientation Of Nasa After 1969, 2010 University of Nevada, Las Vegas
The Age Of Aquarius: The Reorientation Of Nasa After 1969, Junichi Miyamoto
Calvert Undergraduate Research Awards
One of the truisms about the National Aeronautics & Space Administration (NASA) in the eyes of most politicians is that it is a listless relic from the Cold War. On the surface, this interpretation seems acceptable. After all, its crowning achievement (the moon landings) has yet to be surpassed after forty years and likely will not be matched for at least another ten. Moreover NASA’s ordained cause, gaining the upper hand in space, was made possible by the national willpower only the fear of being overtaken by a technologically advanced arch-nemesis can generate. This condition certainly is not on the ...

Fighting For Survival: Coal Miners And The Struggle Over Health And Safety In The United States, 1968-1988, Richard Fry
Wayne State University Dissertations
My dissertation focuses on coal mining and occupational health and safety in the United States from 1968 to 1985. In the late 1960s, coal miners faced the constant risk of injury, occupational disease, and death. The dangerous conditions in the coal industry resulted in a massive explosion at the Farmington mine in West Virginia in 1968, which killed 78 miners. The Farmington disaster spurred miners to campaign for the reform of state and federal coal mine health and safety laws in the United States. They rejected the national leadership of their union, the United Mine Workers (UMW), which they perceived ...
Soviet Education: Communism In The Classroom, 2010 Colby College
Soviet Education: Communism In The Classroom, Alison W. Berryman
My thesis examines the Soviet Union’s educational system during Stalin’s rule. It proves that the goal of the Soviet educational system in the 1920s and 1930s was to instill strong Communist loyalty from a very early age and to expedite the process of industrialization by educating future workers in “socially useful” labor.

To Whom God Has Spoken: American Women In Word And Spirit, 1700-The Present, 2009 Bridgewater State University
To Whom God Has Spoken: American Women In Word And Spirit, 1700-The Present, Margaret Lowe
Although scholars have begun to examine American women's religious history, few published collections of their actual words and creative expressions exist. The proposed volume, an edited, thematic collection of primary source documents will fill this gap. The book will demonstrate the contexts and textures of American women's spiritual authority in the past, including those who claimed to speak for "God" or another deity. Drawing on my expertise in gender history and well-honed archival skills, my project will identify, edit and annotate the most illuminating and representative among American women's diverse religious voices. A FLRG will provide start-up ...
Mata Hari: A Life Of Lies, 2009 Sias International University, China
Mata Hari: A Life Of Lies, Olivia Blessing
Olivia L Blessing
During the international scandal of her 1917 trial and subsequent execution, Mata Hari’s name became a universal title for a traitorous woman. Since then, spies like Tokyo Rose and Radient Jade were known respectively as the "Mata Hari of the airways" and the "Mata Hari of the East." However, unlike the other two women, Mata Hari was famous for being a woman who would do anything for a price years before the French accused her of treason, and this image hurt her during the trial as much as the accusations of treason did.
