Soviet Education: Communism In The Classroom, Alison W. Berryman 2010 Colby College

Soviet Education: Communism In The Classroom, Alison W. Berryman

Honors Theses

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.

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, Junichi Miyamoto 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 ...

To Whom God Has Spoken: American Women In Word And Spirit, 1700-The Present, Margaret Lowe 2009 Bridgewater State University

To Whom God Has Spoken: American Women In Word And Spirit, 1700-The Present, Margaret Lowe

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, Olivia Blessing 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.

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, pablo rosser 2009 COLABORADOR HONORÍFICO UNIVERSIDAD ALICANTE

Revealing Iberian Woodcraft: Conserved Wooden Artefacts From South-East Spain, Pablo Rosser

pablo rosser

Yolanda Carrion & Pablo Rosser Six wells at Tossal de les Basses in Spain captured a large assemblage of Iberian woodworking debris. The authors’ analysis distinguishes a wide variety of boxes, handles, staves, pegs and joinery made in different and appropriate types of wood, some – like cypress – imported from some distance away. We have here a glimpse of a sophisticated and little known industry of the fourth century BC.
