Racial and Ethnic Disparities in Emergency Department Analgesic Prescription

International Relations in a Post-Hegemonic Age
The academic study of International Relations has, since since its emergence after World War I, sought to combine the development of theoretical frameworks with an engagement, of greater or lesser immediacy, with the changing course of international events. Empire, World War, Cold War and post-1991 US hegemony have all been objects of its concern. Today, oscillating at times uneasily between the enticements of abstraction, and the rush of actuality, the discipline faces a major opportunity, to p

Course Objectives: To provide students with an introduction to the world of small business and an understanding of what is needed to start/run a small business.
