Commerce In The Commerce Clause: A Response To Jack Balkin, David Kopel, Robert Natelson 2009 Independence Institute

Commerce In The Commerce Clause: A Response To Jack Balkin, David Kopel, Robert Natelson

David B Kopel

The Constitution’s original meaning is its meaning to those ratifying the document during a discrete time period: from its adoption by the Constitutional Convention in late 1787 until Rhode Island’s ratification on May 29, 1790. Reconstructing it requires historical skills, including a comprehensive approach to sources. Jack Balkin’s article Commerce fails to consider the full range of evidence and thereby attributes to the Constitution’s Commerce Clause a scope that virtually no one in the Founding Era believed it had.


The Choctaw, John Bowes 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

The Choctaw, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

1699, an expedition of Frenchmen encountered American Indians in the lower Mississippi Valley who referred to themselves as Choctaw. As the settlers expanded throughout America, the Choctaw developed a relationship with and adapted to the demands of these newfound neighbors. The Choctaw examines the history of these Native Americans, beginning with the Choctaw Confederacy, and provides insights into how the Choctaw survived as individuals and sovereign tribes in the aftermath of the removal policy of the 19th century. Today, three federally recognized tribes of Choctaw have a combined membership of nearly 200,000. This new title discusses the struggles and ...

A Twentieth-Century Triangle Trade: Selling Black Beauty At Home And Abroad, 1945-1965, Malia McAndrew 2009 John Carroll University

A Twentieth-Century Triangle Trade: Selling Black Beauty At Home And Abroad, 1945-1965, Malia Mcandrew

Malia McAndrew

This study examines the careers of African American beauty culturists as they worked in the United States, Europe, and Africa between 1945 and 1965. Facing push back at home, African American beauty entrepreneurs frequently sought out international venues that were hospitable and receptive to black Americans in the years following World War II. By strategically using European sites that white Americans regarded as the birthplace of Western fashion and beauty, African American entrepreneurs in the fields of modeling, fashion design, and hair care were able to win accolades and advance their careers. In gaining support abroad, particularly in Europe, these ...

Foreword: Out From Under The Shadow Of The Federal Constitution: An Overlooked American Constitutionalism, Christian Fritz 2009 University of New Mexico - Main Campus

Foreword: Out From Under The Shadow Of The Federal Constitution: An Overlooked American Constitutionalism, Christian Fritz

Christian G. Fritz

Most scholars of constitutional law and history equate American constitutionalism with the Federal constitution. This spotlight on the Federal constitution rests on a series of modern assumptions that elevate the status of the Federal constitution over the rich history of state constitutions, and inevitably neglect the central constitutional tenet of the American Revolution - the sovereignty of the people. Viewing American constitutionalism from the perspective of the constitutional legacy of the Revolution suggests a modified paradigm in which state constitutions play a critical role in our understanding the full meaning of American constitutionalism.

The idea of a collective sovereign introduced a ...

Social And Cultural Boundaries In Pre-Modern Poland, Magda Teter, Adam Teller, Antony Polonsky 2009 Wesleyan University

Social And Cultural Boundaries In Pre-Modern Poland, Magda Teter, Adam Teller, Antony Polonsky

Magda Teter

Boundaries—physical, political, social, religious, and cultural—were a key feature of life in medieval and early modern Poland, and this volume focuses on the ways in which these boundaries were respected, crossed, or otherwise negotiated. It throws new light on the contacts between Jews and Poles, including the vexed question of conversion and the tensions it aroused. The collected articles also discuss relations between the various elements of Jewish society—the wealthy and the poor, the educated and the uneducated, and the religious and the lay elites, considering too contacts between Jews in Poland and those in Germany and ...


Uncommon Defense: Indian Allies In The Black Hawk War, John Bowes 2009 Eastern Kentucky University

Uncommon Defense: Indian Allies In The Black Hawk War, John Bowes

John P. Bowes

The Black Hawk War has received an inordinate amount of attention over the years, most recently in Black Hawk: The battle for the Heart of America, by Kerry A. Trask (2006) and The Black Hawk War of 1832, by Patrick J. Jung (2007). Yet not until Uncommon Defense by John W. Hall has anyone closely examined the decisions made by the Menominees, Dakotas, Ho Chunks, and Potawatomis who allied with the forces of the United States in that conflict. In what is an accessible an enlightening study, Hall asserts that those Indian allies “were the true architects of an alliance ...


Communist Regimes, Legitimacy And The Transition To Democracy In Eastern Europe, Monica Ciobanu 2009 State University of New York College at Plattsburgh

Communist Regimes, Legitimacy And The Transition To Democracy In Eastern Europe, Monica Ciobanu

Monica Ciobanu

The purpose of this article is to clarify the relationship between forms of political legitimacy employed by communist regimes in East and Central Europe and subsequent models of revolutionary change in 1989. The conceptual basis of the analysis lies in Max Weber's theoretical framework of legitimacy. The four cases selected for comparison are Bulgaria, Hungary, Poland and Romania. The attempts of de-Stalinization and reformation of these party-state regimes through the introduction of paternalistic and also more goal-oriented measures could not prevent their disintegration in the 1980s and their subsequent collapse in 1989. But, I argue, it was the withdrawal ...

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 ...
