Asma shows that his article was written for an educated or specialized audience by his continual use of complex vocabulary, as well as the place of which the article was first published. Asma did an excellent job convincing his audience using emotion, logic, and ethics. Besides his use of logic, there is a large amount of pathos in his writing, which makes the reader perceive that he is writing to a skeptical audience. For example, describing how in modern films, such as Frankenstein, “we dramatize the rage of the monstrous creature…then scold ourselves…[for being an] intolerant society”(61). “The liberal lesson of monsters
If you like to watch criminal shows like “Criminal Minds” or “CIS” then reading a criminal justice book would be right for you. Bryan Stevenson, an author and gifted young attorney of Just Mercy: A Story of Justice And Redemption was named one of the best books of the year by The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Boston Globe Time, and The Seattle Times.

Knowledge can be a good thing if we use it in a good way, but if you don’t use it wisely it can bring many problems and it might also bring bad consequences. In Frankenstein’s case knowledge was not a good thing. The book Frankenstein, or, The modern Prometheus, by Mary Shelley, was a very intriguing story with many comparisons of the ultimate powers in life. It contained many topics of our everyday life today. Even though it contained many themes of our everyday life, mainly it consisted of knowledge can lead to bad things.
Destiny of the Republic is one the first novel I have read by Candice Millard, but based on Candice Millard work it kept me very hooked throughout the reading and it was an eye-opener in how technology took place in this novel in how it wasn 't effective in the surgery of James Garfield in trying to heal his infections from the bullet wound. When technology is such a great factor in today 's society how we ca n’t live without it today and how Americans today will go beyond crazy if we didn 't have the resources that we have today. So it makes me realize how everyone struggled tremendously during the 1800s, specifically with
Conflict as property can be interpreted in numerous ways, some may agree with Christie, others may believe he is crazy for wanting to change a system that has been working so great for the past hundred years. Through personal knowledge on criminology and information gathered through the article “Conflicts as Property,” it has become evident that my belief on the subject directly correlates with Christie’s. One way Christie demonstrates his opinion on criminology is by showing what he believes is wrong with the system today. The first illustration of how the system is flawed is in the way lawyers decide to fight their case. According to Christie, lawyers tell us that our best argument in our fight against our neighbor are without any legal relevance.
Cruel and Unusual Rhetoric The article, Cruel and Unusual Punishment: The Shame of Three Strikes Laws, by Matt Taibbi, emphasizes while at the same time, educating the audience about the “Frankenstein- like monster that is mandatory- minimum sentencing”. The author goes about this in a quirky way to say the least. From overly detailed and heavily sourced paragraphs, to a couple of grammatical errors. Similarly, the loss of tone and occasionally, focus in the article. Although overall the subject was interesting, the method in which it was written seems to be sloppy and rush.
Although some of X’s plans and ideas were extreme, the majority of it was actually quite compelling. In Peniel’s critique of a book about Malcolm X written by an author by the name of Manning Marable, Peniel states that Marable wrote about Malcolm as (2011), “one whose uncanny ability to reinvent himself during his prematurely short life and truncated public career touched upon themes of black political self-determination, economic justice, internationalism, and radical democracy”. As mentioned before, despite X’s radical views, he was extremely intelligent and laid the foundation for a major reform in American history. Malcolm X once said, “Education is the passport to the future, for tomorrow belongs to those who prepare for it
George Orwell’s 1984 and William Golding’s Lord of the Flies have both stirred up the critics of their times, being each of their author’s most famous novels. After reading the books I felt they shared a similar tone, however their messages seemed very different. Superficially, that would be a true statement, however after reading beyond what is presented on the pieces of paper that constitute both novels, one would realize a shocking resemblance between the two. 1984 is a pure reflection of a totalitarian dictatorship where people are brainwashed to believe the government is oh so gloriously divine, turning them into no more than followers trapped in a box of ignorance and naivety. However, Lord of the Flies focuses on how one’s innate human evil takes control in times of disorder and chaos.
