The Powerful Mythology Surrounding Bugsy Siegel, Larry Gragg Ph.D. 2010 Missouri University of Science and Technology

The Powerful Mythology Surrounding Bugsy Siegel, Larry Gragg Ph.D.

Occasional Papers

Journalists, authors, filmmakers, and historians have been interested in Benjamin “Bugsy” Siegel for over six decades. Collectively, they have crafted a cohesive mythological narrative of Siegel’s life one focused upon “rags to riches” success and his contributions to the development of Las Vegas, Nevada. Most attribute to Siegel the inspiration for not only the Flamingo Hotel‐Casino, but also for the glamorous, classy, flashy resort city Las Vegas became after World War II. This paper describes the development of the myth since Siegel’s murder in 1947 as well as how it has been sustained.


The Nida Brain Disease Paradigm: History, Resistance And Spinoffs, David T. Courtwright 2010 University of North Florida

The Nida Brain Disease Paradigm: History, Resistance And Spinoffs, David T. Courtwright

History Faculty Publications

This article examines ‘the NIDA paradigm’, the theory that addiction is a chronic, relapsing brain disease characterized by loss of control over drug taking. I critically review the official history of the National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA) paradigm and analyze the sources of resistance to it. I argue that, even though the theory remains contested, it has yielded important insights in other fields, including my own discipline of history.

Brazilians In The United States 1980—2007, Laird Bergad

Center for Latin American, Caribbean, and Latino Studies

Introduction: This report examines demographic and socioeconomic factors concerning Brazilians in the United States between 1980 and 2007.

California As Music To American Ears: Migration, Technology, And Rock And Roll In The Golden State, 1946-2000, Toby T. Willett 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

California As Music To American Ears: Migration, Technology, And Rock And Roll In The Golden State, 1946-2000, Toby T. Willett

Master's Theses and Project Reports

Migrations and technological advances in California following World War II, spurred radical changes in the production and development of popular music, most notably rock and roll. California largely lacked the entrenched traditions of the American Northeast, and in many ways its exploding population translated into the growth of a culture built around embracing newer methodologies, whether technological innovations or radical artistic departures. In large part owing to its increasing ethnic diversity during the economic expansion, California was uniquely poised to become a center of incredible postwar dynamism, especially when seen in the production, consumption, and stylistic development of music. Nevertheless ...


Clash Of Titans: William Randolph Hearst And His Impact On American Foreign Policy During The Interwar Period, Brandon D. Roper 2010 California Polytechnic State University - San Luis Obispo

Clash Of Titans: William Randolph Hearst And His Impact On American Foreign Policy During The Interwar Period, Brandon D. Roper

Master's Theses and Project Reports

The purpose of this thesis is to analyze a prominent figure of the 20th century, William Randolph Hearst and to analyze the influence he was able to exert over American foreign policy through his own personal connections and those of his periodicals. This also includes an analysis between Hearst and Roosevelt, and noting the varying levels of influence between the two. This thesis will demonstrate that William Randolph Hearst is a prominent figure of 20th century history, but was overshadowed by Roosevelt. Hearst while powerful was always putting his power into ventures that would backfire politically. When his papers declined ...

Syrian/United States Relations: Explaining The Failure Of The Relationship And Suggestions On How To Repair It, Chris Chapman 2010 Butler University

Syrian/United States Relations: Explaining The Failure Of The Relationship And Suggestions On How To Repair It, Chris Chapman

Undergraduate Honors Thesis Collection

"Syrian-American relations have deteriorated markedly in recent years. " ~Syrian Foreign Ministry spokeswoman, Bushra Kanafani Hezbollah. Hamas. The Islamic Jihad. Rogue nation. The axis of evil. These are features commonly used by the United States government, Western media outlets, and the American people to describe the Republic of Syria. Syria is a major player in geopolitics and relevant to the stability of the Middle East. Its relationship with the United States, therefore, is of central importance in reaching the United States goal of peace in this warravaged region of the world. The erosion of normal diplomatic relations with Syria since the ...

Protestants Protesting Protestantism: 20th Century Experiments In Monasticism, George Faithful 2010 Saint Louis University

Protestants Protesting Protestantism: 20th Century Experiments In Monasticism, George Faithful

Collected Faculty and Staff Scholarship

Contrary to popular belief, there have often been monastic sisterhoods and brotherhoods in Protestantism. In Germany, Möllenbeck, Loccum, and Marienberg all contained cloisters that embraced the Lutheran Reformation but retained much of their monastic practice. That such groups are relatively unknown may reflect the ambivalence of those in positions of power toward potential holdovers from Catholicism. Protestant monasticism has never been normative; therefore, its occurrence might best be understood as an implicit critique of the mainstream confessions. For the purposes of this paper I will not define monasticism as a vague and flexible lifestyle of contemplation and asceticism, as have ...

The Idea Of Human Rights – Western Culture Heritage Or Universal Value?, Boguslawa Lewandowska, Stanislaw Cichocki 2010 Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Fundamental Technological Research

The Idea Of Human Rights – Western Culture Heritage Or Universal Value?, Boguslawa Lewandowska, Stanislaw Cichocki

Bogusława Lewandowska

In both the Charter of United Nations (San Francisco, 1945) and the Universal Declaration of Human Rights (Paris, 1948) the view of the universality of human rights can be found. However one can ask if these documents written in the ring of western culture’s values can be accepted in societies, which traditionally choose a social and economic system restricting civil rights in politics, economics, culture etc. The second question we like to pose asks whether the preservation of human rights is independent or connected to the implementation of a social and economic system in the society. In this connection ...

Fyodor Dostoevsky And Idea Of ‘Pocvennicestvo’, Boguslawa Lewandowska 2010 Polish Academy of Sciences, Institute of Fundamental Technological Research

Fyodor Dostoevsky And Idea Of ‘Pocvennicestvo’, Boguslawa Lewandowska

Bogusława Lewandowska

It would be rather difficult to show that Fyodor Dostoevsky was a thinker remaining within the compass of consistent world view and that his utterances are of the conceptual form. Russian thinkers seldom expressed explicite their own world view in their philosophical treatises, newertheless they are remaining original thinkers. Fyodor Dostoevsky may be considered as one of the adherents of the current called the ‘pocvennicestvo’; the last word being derived from the Russian verb ‘pocva’, which means ‘soil’. The current ‘pocvennicestvo’ is one of the collective world view, which were appearing among some Slavic nations in the Dostoevsky’s epoch ...

Middle Passages And Forced Migrations: Liberated Africans In Nineteenth-Century Us Camps And Ships, Sharla Fett 2010 Occidental College

Middle Passages And Forced Migrations: Liberated Africans In Nineteenth-Century Us Camps And Ships, Sharla Fett

Sharla Fett

Between 1858 and 1860, Africans liberated by the US Navy from four slave ships near the Cuban coast were detained in Federal custody before being transported for resettlement in Liberia. This article draws on the concept of 'middle passage' and 'forced migration' to explore the conditions under which the US government seized, detained, and transported Africans rescued from illegal trafficking. Looking at slave trade suppression through the lens of forced migration rather than legal process not only illuminates the traumatic aftermath of the original Middle Passage but also connects the voyages of liberated African shipmates to a broader history of ...
