This paper discusses industrialization's affect on societies and indigenous peoples. It argues that industrial capitalism is very much connected to the degradation of the environment, and especially to indigenous populations. 5 pgs. 2 f/c. 3b.
To enter into another culture is to enter a world of beliefs and traditions which may be very different from those that shaped us. Our attitude to that culture--Have we come willingly? Are we happy to be here?--and that culture's attitude to us--Are we welcome?--will go a long way towards ensuring a successful adaptation to that culture. But what exactly do social psychologists mean when they refer to attitude? And how is it measured? These are the points that will be addressed in this paper. 7.5 pgs. 4 f/c. 7b.

7.1745 A Conceptual Analysis of "Caucasoid" and "Aggression" with respect to Michael Bradley's "Born of Beast".
All successful arguments necessitate an initial defining of one's terms, and the consistent employment of these concepts in the course of the argument. While this does not, in and of itself, ensure an argument's acceptance, it is essential to a reader's navigation of the landscape of an author's text. Michael Bradley's "Born of Beast" superficially fulfils these two prerequisites with regard to his use of the concepts: "caucasoid" and "aggression". However, this essay will argue that a closer reading of the text reveals not only flaws in reasoning, but an imprecision in employing these concepts that detract from the viability of his argument. It will be demonstrated that this imprecision is necessary to the maintenance of Bradley's thesis, but by its very nature also subverts the argument. 8 pgs. 10 f/c. 2b.
