Direct-Mail Advertising
Direct-Mail Advertising As consumers, we are often bombarded by different types of advertisements each day. Whether it?s by television, newspaper, or billboards, advertising has reached us one way or another.

LABOR IN AMERICA By Ira Peck (Scholastic Inc.) The Industrial Revolution was dawning in the United States. At Lowell, Massachusetts, the construction of a big cotton mill began in 1821. It was the first of several that would be built there in the next 10 years. The machinery to spin and weave cotton into cloth would be driven by water power. All that the factory owners needed was a dependable supply of labor to tend the machines. As most jobs in cotton factories required neither great strength n...

Steinbeck
Steinbeck John Steinbeck A Common Man's Man ?I never wrote two books alike?, once said John Steinbeck (Shaw, 10). That may be true, but I think that he wrote many of his novels and short stories based on many of the same views. He often focused on social problems, like the ?haves? verses the ?have nots, and made the reader want to encourage the underdog. Steinbeck's back ground and concern for the common man made him one of the best writers for human rights. John Steinbeck was born in Salians, C...
