What values and interests are most influential in determining how we see the world?

How does perspective influence the way Americans relate to one another and the rest of humankind?

From the perspective of prison officials at Pelican Bay State Prison in California, keeping prisoners in isolation for 22 hours a day maintains safety and order. From the perspective of the prisoners, it’s cruel and unusual punishment. Will a state wide hunger strike help the prisoners get their way?

How does the millennial generation’s perspective on abortion and gay marriage differ from their parents’ perspective on these issues?

This is an amazing story about Freedom Rider James Zwerg, a hero to many, but a villian from the perspective of his own mother.

    Wow, that is a moving story. We rarely hear about the continuing effects and sacrifices of the people who took to the trenches to fight for civil rights.

Differing perspectives on Mexican-American history cause quite an uproar in Tucson, AZ.

This is a fascinating article about the different ways in which recently released footage of Osama Bin Laden could be interpreted. The author provides a perspective foreign to most Americans, but one we should consider. A photo might say a thousand words, but it speaks differently to different people.
