Whiskey In Early America, Grace Bellino 2018 University of North Georgia

Whiskey In Early America, Grace Bellino

International Social Science Review

Following the American Revolution (1775-1781), Americans turned to whiskey as their spirit of choice simply because it was readily available. Whiskey would shape the identity of the early republic after the Whiskey Rebellion (1791-1794) and set the precedent for frontier insurrection and the authority of the federal government. Whiskey became a crucial contributor to the budding economy of early America and the establishment of distilleries and the ease of distribution of the drink opened up the development of the West. Whiskey became so prolific in the first few decades of the United States that even today, it remains a significant ...


Voters’ Job Approval Ratings And State Legislator Perceptions Of Gubernatorial Influence, Jeffrey E. Cohen 2018 University of North Georgia

Voters’ Job Approval Ratings And State Legislator Perceptions Of Gubernatorial Influence, Jeffrey E. Cohen

International Social Science Review

This paper asks whether voters’ job approval ratings of governors affect state legislator perceptions of gubernatorial influence in the legislative process. This question is a departure from existing research on job approval ratings as a legislative resource in two senses. First, most existing research focuses on presidents; there is much less research on governors, who are studied in this paper. Second, existing research looks at success rates, such as the percentage of roll call votes that the president’s or governor’s side won. Success rate measures may be biased in several ways. One, many presidential and gubernatorial policy proposals ...


Local Economies On Their Minds: Explaining European Preferences For Geographic Origin Food Labels, Carol D. Miller 2018 University of North Georgia

Local Economies On Their Minds: Explaining European Preferences For Geographic Origin Food Labels, Carol D. Miller

International Social Science Review

Values-based labeling has been promoted as a way to promote quality and competitiveness in food production. Geographical origin is one criterion that consumers use to to make food purchases based upon their beliefs, concerns and perceptions about the environment and agricultural and rural development. Through statistical analyses of data from the Eurobarometer 77.2 survey from 2012 this research identifies individual differences between Europeans from 27 countries (N = 26,593) and examines which factors influence the importance consumers place on geographic origin versus price, quality and brands of food. The study also tests whether concern about the environment or concern ...

Who Is Responsible For Ethical Legal Education, For What And To Whom? Case Of Kosovo, Sabiha Shala, Gjylbehare Muharti 2018 Haxhi Zeka University

Who Is Responsible For Ethical Legal Education, For What And To Whom? Case Of Kosovo, Sabiha Shala, Gjylbehare Muharti

International Journal on Responsibility

Legal education continues to be one of the most demanded areas of study from the younger generation in Kosovo. As result, the number of law graduates is quite high. On the other hand, the rule of law sector is quite fragile, judges and lawyers are perceived by parts of the society to be ethically dysfunctional. The trust in judicial institutions is quite low. The debate which is going on now is whose main responsibility for such a situation that is. Is the duty of the higher education institutions providing legal education, or is it a responsibility of educational institutions at ...


Resolving The Paradox Of Holding People Responsible, Hal Pepinsky 2018 Indiana University Bloomington

Resolving The Paradox Of Holding People Responsible, Hal Pepinsky

International Journal on Responsibility

Regardless of justification, it is commonplace throughout the U.S. criminal justice system as in everyday life to teach our offenders and children alike that wrong actions “have consequences,” namely, those authority figures promise to impose upon them. We do so in the name of holding people responsible for their actions, or in legal parlance in civil law, holding them accountable or liable. I noticed that in Norwegian, responsibility, accountability and liability translate into one word, ansvar, which I have translated from Germanic to Latin roots as “responsiveness.” In practice, the state of being responsive to others with whom one ...
