The three day rock festival that defined an era was only one of many music festivals of the ‘60s. But Woodstock has come to symbolize, an era of peaceful, free- loving, drug- taking hippie youth, carefree before harsher realities hit... (Layman 40).

So many of these early accomplishments, along with his major accomplishments while in office as well, have been shadowed by the Watergate scandal. From this, we are able to see how vital the President of the United States really is. It shows us what is expected of the President, while in and out of office. The President represents his country, and the people do

Systems have been developed to regulate, direct and control the resources of this society.

Social Criticism in Literature Many authors receive their inspiration for writing their literature from outside sources. The idea for a story could come from family, personal experiences, history, or even their own creativity. For authors that choose to write a book based on historical events, the inspiration might come from their particular viewpoint on the event that they want to dramatize.

His father was not very successful at his job and for this reason it seems good to believe he became a Socialist because in communist countries it is said that all people are treated equal. An opposite of this book would be ‚Animal Farm, which Sinclair has probably never read. This other novel shows the

The animals on Manor Farm are irritated with the way they are being treated, so they start a revolution.

Animalism was supposed to make life better for the animals but instead their lives got worse. By the end of the story, everything had changed. The government had become corrupt, there was a dictator, and the animals had become slaves to the pigs. Life for the animals couldn\'t get any worse. At the beginning of the story, th

Animal Farm As A Social Criticism Animal Farm As A Social Criticism Writers often use social criticism in their books to show corruptness or weak points of a group in society. One way of doing this is allegory which is a story in which figures and actions are symbols of general truths. George Orwell is an example of an author who uses allegory to show a social criticism effectively.

The shocking fall of communism in Eastern and Central Europe in the late eighties was remarkable for both its rapidity and its scope. The specifics of communism\'s demise varied among nations, but similarities in both the causes and the effects of these revolutions were quite similar. As well, all of the nations involved shared the common goals of implementing democratic systems of government and moving to market economies. In each of these nations, the communist regimes in power were forced to

The story of the failed invasion of Cuba at the Bay of Pigs is one of mismanagement, overconfidence, and lack of security. The blame for the failure of the operation falls directly in the lap of the Central Intelligence Agency and a young president and his advisors.

The Truman Doctrine was the impetus for the change in United States foreign policy, from isolationist to internationalists; thus we were drawn into two wars of containment and into world affairs. The Truman Doctrine led to a major change in U.S. foreign policy from its inception - aid to Turkey and Greece - to its indirect influence in Korea and Vietnam. The aftermath of World War II inspired the U.S. to issue a proclamation that would stem Communist influence throughout the world. However, our

Communism and capitalism are two radically different forms of government which both aim to provide the best life for the citizens under its control. An important characteristic of communism is its aim to make sure that every citizen plays an equal role and gets an equal share of the community\'s profit. Under capitalism, all citizens are given the opportunity to succeed, but individual motivation and skill is required. Since money is one of the most essential measurements of success and stabilit
