Concertino for Orchestra

Description: Concertino for Orchestra is a one-movement composition of rhapsodic character. The treatment of form and orchestration resembles that of the first movement of a concerto. The piece is in modified sonata form, containing two exposition-development sections. The orchestration employs a wide range of tonal colors, and has been used extensively in this piece to emphasize textural development. Each group of instruments is used individually in solo style, and yet the orchestral tutti never assumes the secondary role of accompaniment.

An Analysis of the Political Career of Carl Schurz, 1868-1888

Description: Carl Schurz, appearing on the American political stage during a period of great change, felt the influence of human events as he formulated his political thinking. He also was affected by his German birth, education, and revolutionary activity before his immigration to the United States.

A Study of Asymmetric Syntheses in Coordination Chemistry

Description: Since only one example of an asymmetric synthesis which involved an intermediate containing an optically active ligand has been reported, two questions immediately arise: "Is this type of asymmetric synthesis an isolated example, or is it a stepping stone toward a generalized trend for Co (III) which may be extended to include levo rotatory, as well as dextro rotatory molecules?" In addition, asymmetric synthesis affords a new avenue for synthesizing resolved neutral complexes.

Origins of the Southern Conservation Revolt, 1932-1940

Description: During the political interlude between Wilson and Roosevelt, the United States was under the leadership of the Republican party which adhered to a conservative philosophy. While this regime continued, conservative southerners were content, but in 1933, Franklin Roosevelt, who had campaigned on the need for a "New Deal" was inaugurated President. Although southerners readily accepted the relief and recovery features of the first phase of the Roosevelt program, they opposed his program of sweeping reform because it constituted an impeding threat to intrenched political and economic interests in the South.

Secondly, it will attempt to further explore the relationship between affiliation and dependency.
