LIKE THIS ON THE MARKET CARROLLthis on the market Carroll mentor to Bill Clinton and others is unapologetic in his socialisticneoMarxistfascistic leanings He details how socialists and others have and are taking away our freedoms and why WOW This book is an eye opener I wish I had a personal copy of it I had checked it out through inter library loan This book still ets a lot of interest even though uigley has been dead for over 40 years Perhaps his mention by Bill Clinton in his inaugural address has maintained interest There have been other drivers of interest for uigley and this volume as well not all of them laudable or fairI rated the book highly because of the impact it and the class for which it was read has had on me To this this day I vividly remember uigley s classes five semesters as if they were yesterday The agendas he raised have remained with me ever since He was the first professor I had who was a real showman was the first professor I had "Who Was A Real Showman "was a real showman from the Blank Darkness: Africanist Discourse in French giving of exams to the telling of funny stories What was so important however was that he worked very hard toive meaning to the complex of facts events and people that comprise world history He tried to capture the flow of history the deep longstanding streams flowing through it and the relative few significant forces propelling it The idea that history can be looked at this way is a powerful one especially to an impressionable undergraduate It made you feel like you were working with big time ideas and real scholarship at least those were the impressions I had of the experience With this said I have to also admit that without the personal experience I doubt I would have rated the book as highly as I do The book is under referenced and reads as if it is a collection H two world wars and a worldwide economic depression As an interpretative historian he tries to show each event in the full complexity of its historical context The result is a uniue work notable in several ways It Back to the Breast: Natural Motherhood and Breastfeeding in America gives a picture of the world in terms of the influence of different cultures.
