    Copyright and the Evolution of Legal Systems: Assessing the Divergence of American Legal Culture from British Traditions by Coulter, Jasper C

    Early American law originally depended heavily on British common law and was structured to emulate the practices employed by British law-makers. As America obtained independence from England, this legal influence evolved gradually into a uniquely American legal culture. Copyright law is a useful tool for exploring how this evolution proceeded from its' English roots into its' American iterations. Through a careful study of developments in copyright in England and America in eighteenth and early nineteenth century, this paper contends to examine how a legal system implemented abroad might become culturally distinct.

    How Advanced Spanish Technology Vanquished Aztec Civilization in 1521 by Michaud, Westin Wayne

    The Aztec civilization has displayed numerous civil advancements, making it one of the the most remarkable societies in the world. However, according to historians, the Empire crumbled at the hands of Spanish Conquistadors in 1522 CE. This essay investigates how a modest group of Spaniards managed to overthrow a sophisticated civilization so rapid and so definitely in such a short time. Various exploration of historical records alluded to the Spanish reigning superior over the Aztec opposition thanks to their advanced military and warfare tactics. This offers an explanation to the rapid overthrow of the Aztecs.

    Pain Management as a Framework for Understanding the Evolution of Chinese and Western Medicines in the Twentieth Century: Herbs, Opium, and Acupuncture Analgesia by Davis, William Truett

    This thesis paper will attempt to analyze the interaction of Chinese and Western medicines throughout the end of the nineteenth and early twentieth centuries. In particular, pain management will be used as a framework for understanding these interactions, especially in light of how anesthesia and post-operative pain relief methods were developed separately and then in tandem with these bodies of medicine. How can the evolution of Chinese medicine as it came in contact with Western medicine in the twentieth century help us to understand the culmination of medicine interactions such as acupuncture anesthesia in the 1970’s? In looking at the late nineteenth century (both in the West and in China), the Republican period in China, the Communist Revolution of 1949 in China, and the significant decade of US-China rapprochement in the 1970’s, an investigation of pain management and how Chinese medicine and Western medicine interacted is conducted. Chinese medicine has been favorably adaptive in relation to its traditional history and how it amalgamated with Western science, and there are aspects of Chinese medicine that should be incorporated into Western medical systems today.
