Book Review: Good Faith and Truthful Ignorance: A Case of Transatlantic Bigamy
A very funny story, that captures a taste of live in Spanish America before independence. Good Faith and Truthful Ignorance uncovers from history the fascinating and strange story of Spanish explorer Francisco Noguerol de Ulloa. However, unlike most other rich conquistadores who returned to the land of their birth, Francisco was not allowed to settle into a life of leisure. Instead, he was charged with bigamy and illegal shipment of silver, was arrested and imprisoned. So begins the labyrinthine legal tale and engrossing drama of an explorer and his two wives, skillfully reconstructed through the expert and original archival research of Alexandra Parma Cook and Noble David Cook. Hardship and Risk.
Recounts the true story of a 16th-century Spanish conquistador, Francisco Noguerol de Ulloa, who returns to Spain from a successful sojourn in the New World only to be arrested and imprisoned on bigamy charges. The narrative of his subsequent trial provides insight into social life of the era.

In , Achebe published Things Fall Apart as a response to the negative view that Europeans had placed on his society. Throughout this essay I would like to examine how Achebe responded to these European fabrications by bringing together an accurate picture of pre- and post Colonial life through his essays and novel Things Fall Apart. As a young boy he grew up at the crossroads. The purpose of this essay is to give the reader an insight into the educational theories of Socrates. It is rather difficult to gain any information from first hand written accounts of Socrates work as he hardly ever took down notes and the only accounts that have stood the test of time are those that were documented by Plato, a student of Socrates. In actual fact most of what we know is from later people such as Aristophanes, Xenophen, Plato and Aristotle. These accounts are what have been formulated.
