Download or Read book Justice of Shattered Dreams written by Michael A. Ross and published by LSU Press. This book was released on 2003-09-01 with total page 356 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Appointed by Abraham Lincoln to the U.S. Supreme Court during the Civil War, Samuel Freeman Miller (1816--1890) served on the nation's highest tribunal for twenty-eight tumultuous years and holds a place in legal history as one of the Court's most influential justices. Michael A. Ross creates a colorful portrait of a passionate man grappling with the difficult legal issues arising from a time of wrenching social and political change. He also explores the impact President Lincoln's Supreme Court appointments made on American constitutional history. Best known for his opinions in cases dealing with race and the Fourteenth Amendment, particularly the 1873 Slaughter-House Cases, Miller has often been considered a misguided opponent of Reconstruction and racial equality. In this major reinterpretation, Ross argues that historians have failed to study the evolution of Miller's views during the war and explains how Miller, a former slaveholder, became a champion of African Americans' economic and political rights. He was also the staunchest supporter of the Court of Lincoln's controversial war measures, including the decision to suspend such civil liberties as habeas corpus. Although commonly portrayed as an agrarian folk hero, Miller in fact initially foresaw and embraced a future in which frontier and rivertown settlements would bloom into thriving metropolises. The optimistic vision grew from the free-labor ideology Miller brought to the Iowa Republican Party he helped found, one that celebrated ordinatry citizens' right to rise in station an driches. Disillusioned by the eventual failure of the boomtowns and repelled by the swelling coffers of eastern financiers, corporations, and robber barons, Miller became an insistent judicial voice for western Republicans embittered and marginalized in the Gilded Age. The first biography of Miller since 1939, this welcome volume draws on Miller's previously unavailable papers to shed new light on a man who saw his dreams for America shattered but whose essential political and social values, as well as his personal integrity, remained intact.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: On Saturday, Dan went down a law office located at San Gabriel with Mei. The female lawyer wearing a pair of glasses and was tall and slim, she handed them a few legal forms to sign, meantime the lawyer asked them, “Do you need to prepare a contract for provisions on how child and property will be handled after your divorce is settled?” They shook their heads and Mei echoed, “We don’t have our own property in the United States, our daughter will be taken care by her father financially and I trust him. You don’t need to write an agreement.” Mei glanced at Dan after she ended her answer, Dan nodded. “Okay, your case is pretty simple, I believe your dissolution of marriage will be approved by the court quickly,” said the lawyer. Soon they stood up to shake hand with the lawyer and then stepped out of the law office. Dan parked his car in the underground parking lot in the office building, Dan didn’t press the button of underground parking lot but the button of the first floor lobby after they entered into the elevator. “You pressed the wrong button,” Mei said and was reaching over to turn on the button of underground parking lot. Dan stopped her with his hand and echoed, “I didn’t press the wrong button, I would like to show you to a place outside this building.” “Where?” Mei asked. “When we get there, you will know, it is very close to this building.” After they walked out the office building, they turned right on the local street. In a couple of minutes, they stopped in front of a small gray building with different business signage attached over square windows. Mei followed him, and they entered into the building and were heading to the very end of the hallway on the first floor. They stopped in front of the unit and the entry door attached a sign “Petrel Travel Agency.” The door was left open, a couple of customers were seating there to talk with travel agents across them at the tables. “Why do you take me here?” Mei asked. Dan smiled and said, “Before you go back China, I want you to join a tour group to visit some sceneries in the East Coast.” “No, I don’t want to go, I’m not in a good mood to go.” “Please face the reality, at least you don’t have time to visit U.S. recent years once you go back China for your new position. Please take the last chance enjoying major scenic spots in the East Coast.” Dan’s repeated suggestions seemed to sway Mei, she checked the shelves by the wall, a number of tour brochures were lined on shelves. She skimmed different brochures but had no ideas where she should go. Dan had been checking these travel brochures carefully, he took each of these travel booklets to read its details. “This tour fits your schedule,” Dan handed one brochure to Mei. “This is a 5 day tour to the East Coast, the tour starts in New York city next Monday and you will visit Washington DC, Philadelphia, Boston and Niagara Falls at Canada border. You will fly back LA next Friday.” Mei’s eyes turned to the booklet, “Let me see,” she took the brochure from Dan’s hand. Mei stared at the brochure for a few minutes and responded, “The tour looks good to fit my schedule.” Dan relaxed and echoed, “All right, I’ll book your tour now.” When one customer just left, Dan stepped forward and sat on the chair opposite a middle-age female travel agent. Mei sat on the other chair next to him. The agent looked up and asked, “How may I help you, Sir?” Dan took the brochure out of Mei’s hand and put it on the table, “Please help me book this tour.” The agent caught the brochure and glanced at it, “Okay, I still have the vacancy for the tour. How many people join the tour?” “Just one, it’s for my ---,”Dan’s throat was stuck and felt he would almost say a wrong word. After the

She has actively pursued corresponding with various government officials and the majority of the Christian organizations to encourage them to join forces to help save our country based on the scripture, "Though one may be overpowered, two can defend themselves.

Download or Read book Shattered Dreams written by Colin Burgess and published by U of Nebraska Press. This book was released on 2019-05-01 with total page 288 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt/Synopsis: Shattered Dreams delves into the personal stories and recollections of several men and women who were in line to fly a specific or future space mission but lost that opportunity due to personal reasons, mission cancellations, or even tragedies. While some of the subjects are familiar names in spaceflight history, the accounts of others are told here for the first time. Colin Burgess features spaceflight candidates from the United States, Russia, Indonesia, Australia, and Great Britain. Shattered Dreams brings to new life such episodes and upheavals in spaceflight history as the saga of the three Apollo missions that were cancelled due to budgetary constraints and never flew; NASA astronaut Patricia Hilliard Robertson, who died of burn injuries after her airplane crashed before she had a chance to fly into space; and a female cosmonaut who might have become the first journalist to fly in space. Another NASA astronaut was preparing to fly an Apollo mission before he was diagnosed with a disqualifying illness. There is also the amazing story of the pilot who could have bailed out of his damaged aircraft but held off while heroically avoiding a populated area and later applied to NASA to fulfill his cherished dream of becoming an astronaut despite having lost both legs in the accident. These are the incredibly human stories of competitive realists fired with an unquenchable passion. Their accounts reveal in their own words—and those of others close to them—how their shared ambition would go awry through personal accidents, illness, the Challenger disaster, death, or other circumstances.

Book excerpt/Synopsis: Historically, the United States has been viewed by generations of immigrants as the land of opportunity, where through hard work one can prosper and make a better life. The American Dream is perhaps the United States’ most common export. For many Americans, though, questions remain about whether the American Dream can be achieved in the twenty-first century. Americans, faced with global competition and increased social complexity, wonder whether their dwindling natural resources, polarized national and local politics, and often unregulated capitalism can support the American Dream today. This book examines the ideas and experiences that have formed the American Dream, assesses its meaning for Americans, and evaluates its prospects for the future.

However, in an era when a college education is more important than ever, he might not graduate from high school.
