Briton Hammonís ďNarrative of the Uncommon Sufferings, and Surprizing Deliverance of Briton HammonĒ: Against the Status Quo

This is a 5 page paper discussing Briton Hammonís narrative and elements which seem to go against the norms of the time. Briton Hammonís narrative of his thirteen years at sea seems in many ways to go against the norms of society believed to have existed at that time. Hammon, a slave, was released by his Master to serve at sea. Throughout the narrative, Hammon relates his treatment and his impression of others as if he is a British citizen and this is reflected in his story. Although it appeared he wished to go to sea at the beginning, his final passages express his relief and gratitude for being returned to his Master and his ďNativeĒ land, America. Hammonís story breaks with the status quo and the impressions of the time in that not only was he the first African American prose writer, he also considered himself properly treated by his Master, felt an alliance with Britain and America, was desired and sought after by the Indians and the Governor of Havana and received full wages for his work on the ships while serving Britain. Bibliography lists 3 sources.

The Athenian Thesis: Corresponding Observations from Machiavelli and Contemporary Writers

A 6 page discussion of the Athenian Thesis or Athenian Doctrine. Provides a concise definition of this thesis with the observation that no city is deterred by traditional morality from ruling where it can. Expands on this definition examining the inherent virtues and motivations of Sparta, Athens and even Machiavelliís quest for his empire. Concludes that the Athenian thesis is indeed a part of a consistent view of the world. Although there would appear to be certain contradictions in this thesis such as the virtuous motivations of Sparta, for example, these contradictions appear to weigh themselves out with time. It becomes apparent on a more thorough consideration of this doctrine that even Sparta, despite her virtuous appearances has common goals with Athens or even Machiavelli. Spartaís motivations center around the inability to expand safely rather than any superiority of virtue, just as on close inspection so do Machiavelliís. Bibliography lists 4 sources.

The bibliography cites 10 sources.
