Councils Of Governments; A Study Focusing On Membership, Representation And Voting, Jerry Alan Matson

Dissertations and Theses

The Council of Governments is a significant new approach to metropolitan cooperation. Of the approximately 150 councils (as of January, 1970), all but 14 have been established since 1965.

Masters Theses & Specialist Projects

Furthermore, any major speech by the President or other high governmental official reaffirming the government's course of action was posited into the category of Presidential action. In order for the speech to be considered "major" it either had to have been broadcast over nationwide television or widely ...

Henry Carter Stuart: Virginia Farmer - Politician, 1855-1933, Sharon Kaye Brown May 1970

Henry Carter Stuart: Virginia Farmer - Politician, 1855-1933, Sharon Kaye Brown

Theses, Dissertations & Honors Papers

Henry Carter Stuart was a prominent farmer and wealthy businessman in Southwestern Virginia. He was a politician in the hard fought "Redeem the Ninth" Congressional election of 1910. And, he was elected, unopposed in both the primary and general elections, to the governorship of Virginia in 1913.

Although he reached the highest political office in the State, Virginia history gives Stuart no more than a mere mention. It was because of this lack of recognition that I selected to study Henry Carter Stuart. My purpose was to determine if he had been unfairly accorded the position of relative unimportance, or ...


The Causes Of Student Unrest, Sandra Lee Sawyer May 1970

The Causes Of Student Unrest, Sandra Lee Sawyer

Honors Theses

Protest is not a new invention of the 1960's. Protest has always been the normal apparatus to initiate change in human societies. College students can no longer be taken for granted. Though the great majority of them remain largely content, conservative, and apathetic, a determined minority of restless ones have forces other to examine and sometimes to change institutions, rules, and values that were once considered inviolate.

This century has witnessed the most horrible wars of mankind's history and the greatest advances in the organization for universal peace. But which has gathered the most support? Does the world have protection from another major war? Perhaps, an understanding can be obtained through the following examination of the successes, failures, and ...

Can Law And Human Freedom Be Reconciled In Modern Society?, Bernard Hubley Apr 1970

Can Law And Human Freedom Be Reconciled In Modern Society?, Bernard Hubley

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

Underlying every form of government, said James Hallowell, in The Moral Foundations of Democracy, Is some basic conception of the nature of man and the meaning of human existence, A governmental mechanism is preconditioned by and dependent upon the basic philosophy of its framers. Likewise, the American philosophy of government flows from the “AmericanM philosophy of man. Furthermore, the Declaration of Independence is the instrument which sets forth the ideals and reflects the standards of what has been held as the American Creed. "And today it remains the American Conscience: a constant challenge to those who would subvert our democratic ...

A Political Analysis Of The Conscientious Objector, Michael O'Donnell Apr 1970

A Political Analysis Of The Conscientious Objector, Michael O'Donnell

Political Science and International Relations Undergraduate Theses

At the outset of this thesis certain matters should be stated and explained for the purpose of fully understanding the following pages. Although the most objective viewpoint is sought throughout this paper, common sense warns this goal cannot be totally achieved. With this realistic spirit then, let me explain my personal perspective of politics for those brief moments when I stray into subjective analysis.

The most prevailing tenet of my perspective of politics is a deep distrust of most accumulated knowledge in western history. This distrust is not rooted in whether this knowledge is credible or not credible, provable or ...
