    This general explanation is comprised of a number of specific ethnographic explanations. This argument is also supported by a basic explanatory report of another linguistic anthropologist who outlines what it means to speak Spanish (as a Native Spanish speaker) in the “outer sphere.” Here, the outer sphere is defined as the space in which a person communicates with strangers or in a public sector. That is, the outer sphere is defined in opposition to the inner sphere, which is defined as the space in which a person communicates with those they know or “connect with” on a cultural level. Hill’s second argument is supported both by empirical fact, a canonical study outlined in the endnotes, as well as the other main general ethnographic explanation. Here, Hill also cites a number of concrete ethnographic cultural and historical examples to support her claim that the use of Mock Spanish elevates whiteness. It is important to note that Hill makes the general assumption that whiteness is inherently valued or indexed as “good” in American society. Hill’s final two arguments are different from the first two, as one focuses simply…

Harrison, claims that the differences lie on certain cultural values and attitudes such as people’s sense of community, their ethical system, the exercise of authority and views about education and…

    The book The Things They Carried by Tim O’Brien is full of twists and turns that leave the reader wondering what is true and what is not. His complex writing not only makes one question the truth, but also teaches them about what it is. Through this novel, the author teaches his audience that truth is arbitrary. To support this idea, O’Brien writes about the process and composition of storytelling, explaining that there is a difference between two types of truths which he calls “story-truth” and…

    research in the beginning, with the help of all of Raine’s quotes and explanations, and then slowly moved away from Raine’s thoughts and begin to explain the research in general and all of its results. This in depth information of the research and results gives the readers a better understanding of Raine’s theory by providing several examples of research that show a connection between brain patterns in childhood and criminal behavior in adulthood.

    feel the same as they did. In fact, he began to question if there was even a Jesus anymore. His story not only explained why Langston chose to lie, but it also illustrated the power that outside influences had upon making his decision. And although this is clearly understood through his detailed experiences, I found that this shouldn’t be the overall established. At the beginning of Langston 's story, the boy provides Aunt Reed’s explanation of what it means to be saved by Christ. She…

This book, perhaps even more so than Guns, Germs, and Steel, aims to increase the economic literacy of the public, something that is difficult to do with econometrics. It is also not so far beneath scholars/other…

    According to the straightforward principles of the realists, there would be no explanation for why two countries with similar standing in world politics would have different interests in foreign domination. In contrast, socialists say that it is capitalism that drives a country to dominate beyond its borders. The proponents of this theory such as John Hobson and Vladimir Lenin believed that the primary intention of imperialism “was the search for investment opportunities.” They said that…
