Why was Sir Winston Churchill participating in The Boer War? What is Verisimilitude? Who is making a difference in Columbia? How did American culture mourn the fallen and the failure of Vietnam? When did American culture turn sour? These and other questions are analyzed and expounded upon in depth in this collection of academic papers authored by J. W. Maxcey. Spanning ten years and various topics, these papers cover the physical and the metaphysical. How did gender roles change in Hollywood Film during and after The Second World War? Historians say truth is found down the hall in the Philosophy class. Philosophers say facts are the opposite way in the History class. In the Shattered Mirror you will see the reflection of both.
