The Sacco-Vanzetti case of the 1920s is perhaps one of the most controversial trials in history. The amazingly tragic tale of two Italian immigrants shocked the entire world. The fluctuating evidence, heart-wrenching final statements, and global controversy surrounding the Sacco-Vanzetti verdict have all contributed to making this case so memorable.

On April 15, 1920, the Slater and Morrill Shoe Company, located in Braintree, Massachusetts, was robbed and two men were killed in the midst of the crime.
Breast cancer was not always something that could be freely talked about nor was it always a major illness that was endlessly researched on. In Maren Klawiter’s, “Racing for care, walking women, and toxic touring: Mapping cultures of action within the Bay area Terrain of breast cancer,” she analyzes the deep rooted culture of social movements and compares the differences of individual cancer activism fields in the San Francisco Bay area (Klawiter p.2). She write a comparative analysis by examining three different social movements that both educated the public on breast cancer but also reshaped the breast cancer movement in different ways (Klawiter p.2). My claim is that Klawiter produced an in depth analysis of the different breast cancer movements,
Reaching for the land of promises and opportunity, to fall nothing short of the American Dream, Anzia Yezierska arrived in the United States, “... America was a land of living hope, woven of dreams, aflame with longing and desire” (Yezierska 704).

Leaving everything in Russia, Anzia began her journey to the Promised Land (Yezierska 705) with nothing but a few dollars and an American Dream in her pocket. Within days of her arrival, the bitter reality of Anzia's dreams hit her devastatingly hard, “...my America...
The book “Simple Justice” that was written by Richard Kluger is one of the examples of the successful use of narrative with the scholar style of writing that is telling readers the story behind Brown v. Board of Education. It is needed to state that the book was firstly published in 1976 and at that period it was one of the most precise and detailed descriptions of the decision-making process of the Supreme Court in Brown. That is why, the work of Richard Kluger is so unique, he was able to tell readers the detailed story of the court and that was helpful in the learning of the history as well as in the understanding of the justice system. It is needed to state the fact that in the book Richard Kluger is pointing out on the fact of schools desegregation. He critiques the politics of the government that allowed the school
The story takes place in a school, with a violent, cacotopia atmosphere. This shown through the Klutter’s Kobras harassment, extortion and abuse of the other students and the fear that it instills. This being shown in the line “I’m five foot five, and when the Kobras slithered by, with or without Monk, I shrank” This shows that even someone who's perceived as tall or strong in the story seemed helpless against the Kobras. Humour is shown through the comedic narrative that often exaggerates points and uses off handed metaphors.
Growing up, I have always had an interest in geography and thinking about different countries and what makes them the way that they are. I have not been in a geography class since middle school and Human Geography was a class that made me think about things I have never thought of before. The readings of both Kropotkin and Mackinder brought up very interesting points, some that conflict and others that agree. Each author writes in a way that stimulates and makes you think about geography and certain topics in different ways which I find to be very rare in writings from this time period. Discussing Kropotkin’s and Mackinder’s general ideas, points they disagree or agree on, and my own views on the topic will all be discussed in this final paper.
