farmers alliance Farmers Alliance In the 1880s, as drought hit the wheat-growing areas of the Great Plains and prices for Southern cotton sunk to new lows, many tenant farmers fell into deep debt. This exacerbated long-held grievances against railroads, lenders, grain-elevator owners, and others with whom farmers did business. By the early 1890s, as the depression worsened, some industrial workers shared these farm families\' views on labor and the trusts. By the end of the 1880s, farmers had fo
Law of Inverse Returns The Law of Inverse Returns Scott Barlow December 6, 1996 Shoji Azuma Japan 355 - 1 The law of inverse returns states that the better the foreign learner\'s Japanese is, the worse the reaction of the Japanese native population will be to the learner\'s use of Japanese.

Murray Davis\' Smut, Erotic Reality/Obscene Ideology In the book Smut, Erotic Reality/ Obscene Ideology , by Murray Davis (1983), the author expresses the idea that the best source for studying human sexuality objectively is "soft core", rather than “hard core” pornography.

Society\'s Problems and My Role In Helping It Is helping solve the problems of society everyone\'s job, or no one\'s job.

Anyway, it was a scary movie and I had a bit of fun freaking out my mother that night by telling her that “The Candyman” will appear to

Deregulation of the Airline Industry The airline industry has been subject of intense price competition since it was deregulated, and the result has been a number of new carriers which specialize in regional service and no-frills operations.
