Islamic Gunpowder Empires: Ottomans, Safavids, and Mughals is an attempt by Douglas E. Streusland to present the similarities and difference between the Ottoman, Safavid, and Mughal Empires that stretched across the Middle East. The book focuses on political, military, and economic history rather than on the social, cultural, and intellectual history. Even though Streusland has extensive knowledge and understanding of the Mughal Empire, he still has several observations that make the book a valuable read for anyone studying the history of the Middle East. The book begins with a brief history about the formation of the Islamic culture up until the beginning of the Gunpowder Empires. He does this to show the similarity of a Turko-Persian background
He also gives the audience a better understanding by giving a visual glimpse of what the black community had to endure. Dr. King also included definitions and examples of unjust and just laws, and how they are not right. He included an example of these “laws” by talking about the things Adolf Hitler did was allowed but supposedly helping someone was not allowed. He writes and uses the letter to show the white Americans that are unaware of what is happening around them. Even, though Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. is best remembered for his powerful voice and pathos in this letter is a thoughtful logical argument.

William McEwen Professor Weatheril English 121.4 September 13, 2016 Rhetorical Analysis “Reasons are bullshit”(Roth 41), author Bernard Roth states in his book The Achievement Habit. Chapter two which is based on reasons and the BS behind them gives great detail of what the mind truly thinks, but just doesn't fully interpret.

Equality is not wrong to want something for himself, especially after servicing others his whole life. But while Equality's outlooks aren't necessarily bad, there still needs to be balance. If everyone thought only about themselves, society would crumble. People have to rely on each other to an extent, and total selfishness would prevent this. That being said, someone can have selfish moments while still being a good person and caring for others.
Hooper different is what also makes him a questionable man. The story conveys to a slightly distinct tone of writing. Hawthorne’s words sound almost wistful when he describes Mr. Hooper’s character but the author words also make a point of the judgment his character goes through without showing any evidence. “In this manner Mr. Hooper spent a long life, irreproachable in outward act, yet shrouded in dismal suspicious; kind and loving, though unloved, and dimly feared; a man apart from men, shunned in their health and joy, but ever summoned to their aid in mortal anguish” Ultimately, “The Minister’s Black Veil” is still a modern story among this contemporary society. Judgments are seen and feel by those who are different or strange to the multitude, however is the same difference that we arguably criticize and also judge who makes the rest also become different.
While the choice of whether to remain loyal to the crown or join the revolution became popular in the late eighteenth century, two men, Jonathan Boucher and Thomas Paine, decided to voice their beliefs and later became well known for their arguments. Though Boucher stated strong points about why remaining loyal to Great Britain was the correct choice, Paine’s argument was more appealing because he clarified that America would offer various inviting benefits that Britain was not able to provide. Paine compelled people because of the clarity in his argument. He avoided utilizing language that people were incapable of understanding, and he made his points sound appealing by using “a new style of political writing” (#31, p.95). Paine informed
Every act of goodness and badness have their own purpose and do not have something in common. Because some people do good deeds in order to satisfy themselves or to feel themselves worthy of something. Even if going against society is unpleasant and difficult it is worthy of trying because going through the frames of society allows you define what goodness means for
All through the book Huck learns and figures out what his morals are. Trilling states in his article that Huck is comfortable with telling lies and never tells the same one twice. This is significant because it shows the readers that huck doesn’t have exactly full morals that he strictly believes. It shows readers how Huck is still in process of finding what his morals are. By not telling the same lie and being comfortable with it, it shows that he is naive in the sense not figuring out that it’s morally wrong and Huck is going to a struggle to find what’s exactly is morally ‘right’.

For example Hale just coming into the story said if he does not find any witches that they will have to agree with his decision. That shows that he is fair and he will not have any past grudges interrupt his work. In the opposite direction though the negative outweighed the positive with many other negative characters. Putnam was also another negative character he wanted Giles corey dead just because of a land dispute. Abigail the most flat out negative, Danforth was a lawful negative, and Parris was a social negative meaning he did not get along with others and liked to do his own thing.
