Reducing The Impact Of Ethnic Tensions On Economic Growth – Economic Or Political Institutions?, Atin Basu Choudhary, Jim Bang, Michael Reksulak 2010 Virginia Military Institute

Reducing The Impact Of Ethnic Tensions On Economic Growth – Economic Or Political Institutions?, Atin Basu Choudhary, Jim Bang, Michael Reksulak

Atin Basu Choudhary

We use a standard growth regression model and show that ethnic tensions reduce per capita growth rates. We also find evidence that “good” economic and political institutions improve per capita growth rates. More importantly, good economic institutions mitigate the effect of ethnic tensions on per capita growth while good political institutions do not. Consequently, it is foremost capitalist freedom that promotes peace and development.


"Two Days By Plane": America's First Transcontinental Passenger Airline And The Selling Of The Skies, Sean Fraga 2010 Yale University

"Two Days By Plane": America's First Transcontinental Passenger Airline And The Selling Of The Skies, Sean Fraga

MSSA Kaplan Prize for Use of MSSA Collections

Transcontinental Air Transport, the first transcontinental passenger airline in the U.S., cut the time necessary to cross the continent in half—and, in doing so, opened a new age in passenger aviation. In its brief life, the airline also captured the possibilities of flight, the limitations of technology, the power of celebrity, and the promise of national integration.


The Buckley-Coffin Crusade: Preaching The Gospel Of Political Ideology To Yale And America In The 1960s, Danielle Kehl 2010 Yale University

The Buckley-Coffin Crusade: Preaching The Gospel Of Political Ideology To Yale And America In The 1960s, Danielle Kehl

MSSA Kaplan Prize for Use of MSSA Collections

The story of William Sloane Coffin Jr. and William F. Buckley Jr. sheds some light on the complexity of student politics in the 1960s, challenging the simplistic historical analysis so often applied to the period. In large measure, liberal and conservative student movements evolved, like Buckley and Coffin, in conversation with one another in the 1960s, with roots that extended back to the beginning of the decade and before. These movements did not emerge organically on college campuses, in a sphere free of adult influences; many of these student visionaries found their mission with the encouragement and support of generational ...


"By Any Means Necessary": The Lincoln, Nebraska, Ywca Confronts Racism, 1970-1984, Brianna Jo Theobald 2010 University of Nebraska at Lincoln

"By Any Means Necessary": The Lincoln, Nebraska, Ywca Confronts Racism, 1970-1984, Brianna Jo Theobald

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research, Department of History

This thesis documents the struggle of the Lincoln, Nebraska Young Women’s Christian Association (YWCA) to implement a national organizational policy that mandated an aggressive stand toward the elimination of racism within the organization and the larger community. The study reveals the limitations of the colorblind discourse espoused by YWCA women in the early 1970s and examines some key changes that were made in the following decade that allowed the Lincoln organization to join cause with national movements in the fight to eliminate racism. Thus, the study offers an analysis of efforts to undertake antiracist action in a predominantly white ...

A Gay Date With History: A History Of The Boston Lgbt Film Festival, Andrew Elder 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

A Gay Date With History: A History Of The Boston Lgbt Film Festival, Andrew Elder

Andrew Elder

George Mansour has been booking film in Boston-area movie theaters for 46 years. In the early 1980s, in addition to booking films for more mainstream commercial and art movie houses like the Orson Welles in Cambridge and the Nickelodeon just outside Kenmore Square, Mansour booked films for the South Station Cinema, a gay porn house in Boston. His work for the South Station Cinema, Mansour told The History Project in a recent interview, was the catalyst for what would become the Boston LGBT Film Festival.

‘[A] Litle Treatyse In Prynte And Euen In The English Tongue’: Appeals To The Public During The Early Years Of The English Reformation, Bradley C. Pardue

Doctoral Dissertations

This project examines the important implications of printed vernacular appeals to a nascent public by exiled reformers such as William Tyndale, by religious conservatives such as Thomas More, and by Henry VIII and his regime in the volatile years of the 1520s and 1530s. This dissertation explores the nature of this public, both materially and as a discursive concept, and the various ways in which Tyndale provoked and justified public discussion of the central religious issues of the period through the production of vernacular Bibles and his polemical works. Tyndale’s writings raised important issues of authority and legitimacy and ...

The Consanguinity Of Ideas: Race And Anti-Communism In The U.S. - Australian Relationship, 1933 - 1953, Travis J. Hardy 2010 University of Tennessee - Knoxville

The Consanguinity Of Ideas: Race And Anti-Communism In The U.S. - Australian Relationship, 1933 - 1953, Travis J. Hardy

Doctoral Dissertations

American diplomatic historian’s consideration of the role of ideology in the formation of American foreign policy has only recently begun to receive more attention. Traditional focuses on economics and relations among great nation-states have predominated the historical literature. This work examines the powerful effect that ideology, particularly race and anti-communism, played in developing the U.S.’s relationship with a small power nation-state, Australia, between 1933 and 1953. This work is comparative in nature, relying on archival research in both American and Australian archives and examines the attitudes of both elite policymakers as well as common individuals in shaping ...


"If A Passage Could Be Found": The Power Of Myth (And Money) In North American Exploration, Brenden Rensink 2010 University of Nebraska - Lincoln

"If A Passage Could Be Found": The Power Of Myth (And Money) In North American Exploration, Brenden Rensink

Dissertations, Theses, & Student Research, Department of History

The popular lore of North American exploration and westward expansion has oft been woven with themes of heroic bravery, divine providence and Manifest Destiny. These tales indeed relate portions of actual history, but also offer insight into the self-perception and culture of the societies perpetuating them. As larger-than-life figures braved the "unknown" in the name of nation or creed, the motives behind their ventures often were not so singular. The ever-driving force of economic gain stood as a foundation for most expeditions. Simultaneously justifying the current expedition and providing support for future endeavors, explorers interested in self-preservation placed a premium ...

Documentary Research And Archaeological Investigations At The Waite-Kirby-Potter Site, Westport, Massachusetts, Katharine M. Johnson, Christa M. Beranek, Kathryn A. Catlin, Laura W. Ng 2010 University of Massachusetts Boston

Documentary Research And Archaeological Investigations At The Waite-Kirby-Potter Site, Westport, Massachusetts, Katharine M. Johnson, Christa M. Beranek, Kathryn A. Catlin, Laura W. Ng

Andrew Fiske Memorial Center for Archaeological Research Publications

Research on the Waite-Kirby-Potter house in Westport, Massachusetts, included mapping historical resources visible on the surface and excavating 25 test pits and units near the house foundations in the fall of 2009. Field investigations were complemented by extensive documentary research including a complete chain of title and genealogical research on the three families who have owned the property between the late 17th century and the present. The visible historical features include elements associated with the former stone ender (the standing stone end and chimney, an adjacent brick chimney, and a stone-lined cellar hole), stone walls, a 19th-century barn foundation, a ...


At Their Own Deliberate Speed: The Desegregation Of The Public Schools In Beaufort County, South Carolina, Anne Kelsey 2010 Clemson University

At Their Own Deliberate Speed: The Desegregation Of The Public Schools In Beaufort County, South Carolina, Anne Kelsey

All Theses

This project studies public school desegregation in Beaufort County, South Carolina, from 1954-1973. Beaufort County is a community that historians have overlooked in the narrative of southern school desegregation. Just like other southern communities, Beaufort County's school desegregation story must be studied from multiple angles and across time. By focusing on a rural county on the coast of South Carolina, this project asks how school desegregation occurred in areas outside of the `visible South.' Within this narrative, this project approaches Beaufort County's school desegregation from two historiographical angles--one top-down and the other bottom-up. The first explores how federal ...
