The great West that George Bird Grinnell first encountered in 1870 as a 21-year old man was shortly to disappear before his eyes. Nobody was quicker to sense the desecration or was more eloquent in crusading against the poachers, the hidehunters, and the disengaged U.S. Congress than George Bird Grinnell, the “Father of American Conservation.” Grinnell founded the first Audubon Society, cofounded the Boone and Crockett Club with Teddy Roosevelt, and led the effort to establish Glacier National Park.

The Bill of Rights guarantees certain liberties, free speech and press, peaceable assembly, the right to bear arms and be free from unlawful searches and seizures, among them. But during times of war, and even times of peace, the government’s war-making power may trample on individual rights…

Body Cameras, Tasers and Guns: Modern Policing or a Police State?  Michael Scott, ASU Center for Problem-Oriented Policing, School of Criminology & Criminal Justice The methods and tools used by police officers today are not the same as in the past. In some cases the police are using military tools and tactics for law enforcement. Are the police really protecting the public, or are they over-policing civilians? Is there a “war on police” that is chilling local law enforcement? Are…

The Big Band era, 1930s and 1940s, came during turmoil in the United States with Prohibition, the Depression and World War II.

Matt Kundert, University of Arizona, Department of English Current social controversies reflect our nation’s complex history, politics and values.
