Reasons the 18th Amendment was created The Prohibition era usually refers to the period from January 1920 until April 1933 when the National Prohibition Enforcement Act forbade the manufacture and sale of alcoholic beverages with an alcohol content of greater than 0.5 percent.

Progressive reformers wanted to ban alcohol to fight city problems as family violence, crime, and poverty. Baptists, Methodists, and other Protestants also… Continue reading

1955 By Alice Walker Essay, Research Paper

Elvis Presley was an important figure in popular music and culture at this time in the 1950?s; Willie Mae Thornton represents personal, artistic, and ethical values admired by Walker. The author bases her characters, Traynor and Gracie Mae ?Little Mama? Still, on these real people but abandons biographical accuracy to amplify the symbolic meaning of each character.

In this process, Elvis becomes an interloper destroyed by stealing what he does not understand. The Thornton character is poor but authentic, and she succeeds as a person even though her career flops. Thus each character… Continue reading

1960S Essay, Research Paper

There was a full-scale sexual revolution. Decriminalization of homosexuality was prevalent and sex education was now allowed to be taught in schools. By taking the mystery out of sex (by learning about it), it will not be detrimental to society. Television shows also started including sex in hopes of lowering STDs and the birth rate. In 1963, birth control was developed and was… Continue reading

1960’S Times Essay, Research Paper

The 1960?s were a time of major political and social change. These changes were primarily fuelled by the youth of the time. Their parents had come from life in both the great depression of the 1930?s as well as World War II, and were on a whole more conservative than their children, a fact the younger generation did not like. In the early 60?s the electronic media (Television and radio) became an important communication tool, as opposed to the largely print based media of previous decades. With change came a profound increase in the exchange… Continue reading

Nineteen Eighty-Four was written between the years of 1945 and 1948. Orwell got the title from switching the last two numbers of the publication date. In Orwell?s criticism of a perfect society, his book became known as one of the greatest anti-utopian novels of all time.
