  • Lack Of Diversity In Small Towns

    When Small Towns go big or go Organic There was a time when the town I lived in was a small society of farmers and factory workers.

  • Critical Differences Between Foucault And Durkheim

    lose the part of actors if they want a whole picture instead of a partial one. In my view, albeit Durkheim and Foucault are similar at putting less emphasis on the actors and giving them less power, they are different in identifying and investigating the actors.

  • The Negro Church In America Analysis
