The Nonfulfillment of New Haven’s Aspirations - Between the early to mid 1600’s, British outcasts had begun to venture out to North America to seek religious freedom.

The problem worsens when you enter a different neighborhood and the well-to-do are far from sight.

Theories and their Differences: Analysis of Robert Dahl’s Who Governs, and Robert Michels’ Political Parties - It should be a fare assumption, that most social scientists have an intuitive notion of what constitutes ‘power’. Nonetheless, academia has been unable to formulate a single defining statement for the concept of power, rigorous enough to be used interchangeably when studying various political or social phenomenon. Worse yet, the more attempts are made to define power, the more complex the concept becomes. Although the conceptual definition of power is difficult to pinpoint, its pervasive applicability, and on-going importance to political theorists is certainly not lost, as countless academics define and apply the concept of power in order to add depth to their work....   [tags: Political Science, Philosophers]
