A powerful argument with citation and 140 sources proving unequivocally that the North did not go to war to end slavery or free the slaves. The cause of the War Between the States (Civil War) was the threatened economic annihilation of the North brought about by the secession of the Southern States. The North quickly discovered that its great wealth and employment depended on manufacturing and shipping for the South, and without the South, the North was headed fast to economic collapse and anarchy. The North’s passage of the astronomical Morrill Tariff at the same time that Southerners m

The ABCs of Human Survival examines the effect of militant nationalism and the lawlessness of powerful states on the well-being of individuals, local communities, and global citizenship. Based on the analysis of world events, Arthur Clark presents militant nationalism as a pathological pattern of thinking that threatens our security, while emphasizing effective democracy and international law as indispensable frameworks for human protection. Within the contexts of history, sociology, philosophy, and spirituality, this book calls into question the assumptions of consumer culture and offers, as

Cognitive science arose in the 1950s when it became apparent that anumber of disciplines, including psychology, computer science,linguistics, and philosophy, were fragmenting. Perhaps owing to thefield’s immediate origins in cybernetics, as well as to thefoundational assumption that cognition is information processing,cognitive science initially seemed more unified than psychology.However, as a result of differing interpretations of the foundationalassumption and dramatically divergent views of the meaning of the terminformation processing, three separate schools emerged:classical cognit

From the moment it was first proposed, the role of the nursepractitioner has been steeped in controversy. In the fields of bothnursing and medicine, the idea that a nurse practitioner can, to somedegree, serve as a replacement for the physician has sparked heateddebates. Perhaps for that reason, despite the progress of the nursepractitioner movement, NPs have been reluctant to speak aboutthemselves and their work, and their own vision of their role has thusremained largely invisible. Current research is dominated byinstrumental and economic modes of discourse and tends to focus on theclinical

The twelve "lays" of Marie de France, the earliest known French woman poet, are here presented in sprightly English verse by poet/translator David R. Slavitt. These old Breton folk tales were the raw material for Marie de France’s series of lively but profound considerations of love, life, death, fidelity and betrayal, and luck and fate. They are acute observations about the different kinds of choices women make, startling in the late twelfth century and challenging even today. The lays, which combine a woman’s wisdom with an impressive technical bravura, are a minor treasure of Eu

Open Access means aims to remove restrictions that exist on the access to articles and knowledge to the world-wide scholarly community, in particular to those in developing countries. Scientists in these countries still have difficulty in publishing their work due to the lack of access to the network, to their institutional economic difficulties or to the lack of awareness of available Open Access solutions. The visibility, usage and impact of researchers’ own findings can increase with Open Access, as does their power to find, access and use the work of others. This book aims to guide
