Slavery By Another Name, Douglas A. Blackmon

- ... As long a slave owner pleaded guilty to peonage once federal investigation and trials began, they were let off with a slap on the wrist and a few years in jail. Anyone interested in the truth of the working conditions of southerner blacks since the Civil War would highly enjoy this novel and discover that what they were taught in school about black slaves becoming free after the war is a lie. I was not a specialist on the topic but was capable of truly enjoying such a great read filled with information about the many slave owners during this time period....   [tags: Slavery, African American, American Civil War]

Chaucer's Canterbury Tales - Concept of Charity in the General Prologue

- The Concept of Charity in the General Prologue   In the "General Prologue," Chaucer presents an array of characters from the 1400's in order to paint portraits of human dishonesty and stupidity as well as virtue.  Out of these twenty-nine character portraits three of them are especially interesting because they deal with charity.  Charity during the 1400's, was a virtue of both religious and human traits.  One character, the Parson, exemplifies Chaucer's idea of charity, and two characters, Prioress, and Friar, to satirize the idea of charity and show that they are using charity for either devious reasons or out of convention or habit....   [tags: General Prologue Essays]

- "A general who wears down 180,000 of the enemy by expending 400,000 men...has something to answer for." This idea from military historian C.E.W Bean is the main line of argument from traditionalist historians. They represent General Douglas Haig, British Commander-in-Chief of the BEF from 1915 to the end of the war in 1918, in a critical, damning light: a hopelessly incompetent general with a willingness to sacrifice the men of Britain for a few metres of muddy ground. On the converse of this interpretation is a revisionist perspective of Haig as a caring ‘architect of victory’, bringing long-term achievements with his perceptive strategies....   [tags: Britain, Commander in Chief, War]
