 Article Title :: Critique of Good Faith and Truthful Ignorance
 
Alexandra Cook's and Noble Cook's text, Good Faith and Truthful Ignorance, traced the lives of an early settler of the New World and his two wives. The authors' purpose in writing this book was to provide modern readers with a "mirror of a segment of Spanish society in the sixteenth century, the middle class and minor nobility" (Cook xii). The authors explored all facets of this society: their values and customs, legal structure, their economy, and their home life.The authors wove together the story of this man's life with other historical background information, legal procedures, and the social mores of the time so skillfully that the reader did not become bogged down in mu  (read full article)

The artists book may be in the form of hand printed lithographs, lino cuts, letterpress or even hand written. They are often made using an unconventional format and unusual binding.

 Article Title :: Black Printmakers in South Africa
 
Black printmakers have a long history in the South African art world. Many of South Africa's top Black artists, both past and present are also printmakers. Black printmakers who are established artists are survivors of the dysfunctional society that existed during the apartheid era and are a constant source of inspiration to a younger generation of Black printmakers.There are a few Black printmakers who worked almost exclusively in print. Among these are the late John Muafangejo (a Namibian artist), Dan Rakgoathe and Cyprian Shilakoe.

 Article Title :: Investing in Original Prints
 
An original print refers to a wide range of printing media and usually indicates that the work has been produced by hand as opposed to mass printing done on a commercial printing press such as those used to produce magazines and advertising posters. A reproduction is when a printed image is made of something that was not a print in its original form. Thus an oil painting can be reproduced as a print but it is not a genuine original print. Often such reproductions are hand signed by the artist and are sold as original prints when in fact they are not. This comes about as there is so little awareness about what an original print is.People are also led to believe t  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Assimilation or Resistance: A Comparison of Two African American novels
 
These two novels are divergent in regards to time frame, family relationship, and class. The female protagonists are both young, African Americans but their lives are complete opposites. Before reading these texts, the only African American literature that I had read and studied have been slave narratives, such as Frederick Douglas' and Celia, A Slave. These texts showed me that even after emancipation, African Americans were still oppressed, first with segregation and then poverty.Baby of the Family is a story of assimilation. Lena's family, even though they live in a segregated society, are joining the white culture as much as possible. They are definitely middle cl  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Two Versions of the American Dream
 
"The American Dream" consists of the old rags-to-riches story as pictured in the books written by Horatio Alger. The American dominant culture has tried to convince themselves and others that America is the "land of opportunity"; that if a person works hard and has "luck and pluck" that person can achieve his or her dreams of riches and success. The American Dream is not aobut equality, because it is assumed that all are equal (among the WASPs). In contrast, the African American dream is about equality and freedom.In Martin Luther King’s famous speech "I Have a Dream," he says "the life of the Negro is still sadly crippled by the manacles of segregation and the chains of discrimi  (read full article)

 Article Title :: Mill's On Liberty
 
In his essay, On Liberty, John Stuart Mill discusses what he believes to be the greatest obstacle to individuality: the tyranny of the majority (Mill 7). This tyranny of the majority is the ability of society to impress their own beliefs and values onto other members of society who do not willingly adhere to these beliefs, but rather are compelled in this acquiescence (Mill 7). Mill asserts that this compulsion to conform to public opinion prevents the development of individuality among the community (Mill 7). In his discussion, Mill explains his conception of the characteristics of individuality, and the role of individuals in society.Mill claims that the goal of the ideal   (read full article)

Nowadays it is a megapolis with a population of more that 5 million people, a city with a fascinating history and culture.However, if we could look at these lands back in the year 1703, we would find vast marshy lands and small villages scattered here and there.
