Consumed in Freedom's Flame is the exciting story of a fictional hero, Aran Roe O'Neill, and his resolute commitment to Ireland and its quest for independence. He personifies the courageous resistance of generations of Irishmen and women to English conquest, corruption and injustice. Together with a small group of other republicans, Aran fights for his nation's freedom during the early part of the twentieth century.The story weaves fact and fiction around the exploits of this youthful Irishman and his adventurous friends from Dublin's 1916 Easter Rising to the ensuing Irish War of Independence. Theirs is the troubled and tormented account of Ireland's attempt to control its own destiny in the face of resolute British opposition and the intervention of Fate's cruel hand.

During the revolutionary era, in the midst of the struggle for liberty from Great Britain, Americans up and down the Atlantic seaboard confronted the injustice of holding slaves. Lawmakers debated abolition, masters considered freeing their slaves, and slaves emancipated themselves by running away. But by 1800, of states south of New England, only Pennsylvania had extricated itself from slavery, the triumph, historians have argued, of Quaker moralism and the philosophy of natural rights. With exhaustive research of individual acts of freedom, slave escapes, legislative action, and anti-slavery appeals, Nash and Soderlund penetrate beneath such broad generalizations and find a more complicated process at work. Defiant runaway slaves joined Quaker abolitionists like Anthony Benezet and members of the Pennsylvania Abolition Society to end slavery and slave owners shrewdly calculated how to remove themselves from a morally bankrupt institution without suffering financial loss by freeing slaves as indentured servants, laborers, and cottagers.

Examines the impact of cable television, computer networks, communication satellites, and other modern technology on free speech and freedom of the press
In this book, G. A. Cohen examines the libertarian principle of self-ownership, arguing that it cannot deliver the freedom it promises to secure thus undermining the concept that lovers of freedom should embrace capitalism & its accompanying inequality.
Filled with fresh interpretations and information, puncturing old myths and challenging new ones, Battle Cry of Freedom will unquestionably become the standard one-volume history of the Civil War. James McPherson's fast-paced narrative fully integrates the political, social, and military events that crowded the two decades from the outbreak of one war in Mexico to the ending of another at Appomattox. Packed with drama and analytical insight, the book vividly recounts the momentous episodes that preceded the Civil War--the Dred Scott decision, the Lincoln-Douglas debates, John Brown's raid on Harper's Ferry--and then moves into a masterful chronicle of the war itself--the battles, the strategic maneuvering on both sides, the politics, and the personalities. Particularly notable are McPherson's new views on such matters as the slavery expansion issue in the 1850s, the origins of the Republican Party, the causes of secession, internal dissent and anti-war opposition in the North and the South, and the reasons for the Union's victory. The book's title refers to the sentiments that informed both the Northern and Southern views of the conflict: the South seceded in the name of that freedom of self-determination and self-government for which their fathers had fought in 1776, while the North stood fast in defense of the Union founded by those fathers as the bulwark of American liberty. Eventually, the North had to grapple with the underlying cause of the war--slavery--and adopt a policy of emancipation as a second war aim. This "new birth of freedom," as Lincoln called it, constitutes the proudest legacy of America's bloodiest conflict. This authoritative volume makes sense of that vast and confusing "second American Revolution" we call the Civil War, a war that transformed a nation and expanded our heritage of liberty.
Seminar paper from the year 2005 in the subject American Studies - Culture and Applied Geography, grade: very good (UK: grade A), University of Hannover, course: American Politics, 9 entries in the bibliography, language: English, abstract: The question of the media’s role in wartime has become more and more important as the press is increasingly involved in the events on the battleground. Since the Vietnam War the freedom of press and the amount of political control over the media have been subject to controversial debate. In the Iraq War, however, the issue of journalism has reached a new level. With regard to the ‘embedding’ of reporters in this war, this essay will deal with how the media’s role in the Iraq war is different from previous wars in American history. This issue will be discussed in the context of the First Amendment to the American Constitution.

Bauman (sociology, U. of Leeds) analyzes freedom as a social relation rather than as an idea or postulate. Throughout history, he shows, freedom was a privilege enjoyed in relation to either superior or weaker power. Today, "seduction" tends to replace repression as a means of social control, and individual freedom is, above all, freedom of the consumer. A paper edition is available ($10.95; 1757-0).
