Chapter 2 tells the story of the Grange and the other organizations by which the farmers proposed to effect their regeneration. Chapter 3 is devoted to the political aspects of the movement--the independent parties which grew out of it and the attempts of the farmers to use their organizations for influencing legislation. The three following chapters deal with the attempt to subject railways to effective regulation by the state, an attempt which became so closely interwoven with the movement for agricultural organization as to be essentially a part of it. In Chapter VII the efforts of the farmers to render themselves independent of middlemen and manufacturers by the establishment of cooperative enterprises are treated; Chapter VIII sets forth the influence of the movement on social and economic conditions. The last chapter traces the connection of the movement with later organizations of farmers and workingmen, and its relation to American history.

She was born to a wealthy doctor, then she and her family were rounded up and imprisoned in the Warsaw Ghetto to live a disease-ridden, hand-to-mouth existence, always in the presence of death. The family then escaped to the "Aryan" side where they had to slip from one safe-house to another, in constant fear of discovery and under the constant threat of blackmail. Janina Bauman (née Lewinson; 18 August 1926, in Warsaw – 29 December 2009, in Leeds) was a Polish journalist and writer of Jewish origin. She was the daughter of Szymon Lewinson (1896–1940), a urologist and Polish Army officer murdered in the Katyn massacre.

She subsequently worked in the film industry as a translator, researcher and script editor. She left Poland with her husband in 1968 after the anti-Semitic purges, that followed the March 1968 events.
Washington DC: The Catholic University of America. Presumed First printing thus. Single sheet, printed on one side. Format is 8.5 inches by 11 inches, with several tears at top. Interdepartmental communication form has not been filled in! The form has "The Catholic University of America" at the top center. Below it is "Washington 17, D.C." Below that is "Interdepartmental Communication". Below that and to the right is "Date". On the left side are headers of "Subject", "From" and "To". It is extremely unusual to find an unfilled in item of stationary so long after it was produced. Its production preceded the prevalence of Zip Codes and reflects the era of other zone identification. This ephemera has significant potential for use in forensic instruction, analysis of ink, paper, and production methods. It can be used as a theater prop or for the creation/recreation of a document. This type of authentic form can be an invaluable teaching aide for security and intelligence training in the creation and detection of 'legends' for undercover operatives and methods of detecting forgeries or flaws in documents (such as how it might appear if a more modern typewriter (selectric versus strike key) was used to fill in such a format). One can image the use of such a surviving sheet of stationery as a novelist device in a sequel to, for example, The Da Vinci Code, or for other purposes.

Some endpaper discoloration. Some cover wear and soiling. "A model of fencing instruction."—Time Magazine. "A detailed and well-illustrated exposition of the art."—The New York Times Aldo Nadi (29 April 1899 – 10 November 1965) was one of the greatest Italian fencers of all time. Aldo was born into a fencing family in Livorno, Italy, and both Aldo and his brother Nedo Nadi were fencers from a very young age. They were both taught foil and sabre in the classical Italian school of swordsmanship by their father, Beppe Nadi, who believed the épée to be an "undisciplined" weapon and refused to teach it. The brothers therefore practiced épée by themselves. In 1920, at the age of 21, Nadi won gold medals at the Olympics in team foil, team épée, and team sabre. He also won a silver medal in individual sabre, second only to his brother Nedo Nadi. Nadi emigrated to the United States in 1935. He taught fencing in New York City from 1935 to 1943, and in 1943 published a book On Fencing. Also in 1943, he relocated to Los Angeles, California, where he continued to teach fencing in his own school, in addition to occasionally coaching actors for fencing scenes in films. He even made a film appearance himself, as a bodyguard in To Have and Have Not (1944), starring Humphrey Bogart. In 1955, Nadi wrote his autobiography (The Living Sword: A Fencer's Autobiography), which was published 30 years after his death.

A former U.S. Marine and a veteran of the Vietnam War offers a empathetic, fictional portrait of the Vietcong, tracing the brutal journey of a platoon of teenaged Vietnamese boys down the Ho Chi Minh Trail. The enemy is a platoon of fifteen-year-old boys ordered to carry more than a ton of cargo down a primitive network of trails and roads known to the Vietnamese as the Old Man's Trail but called the Ho Chi Minh Trail in the West. This is a tale of courage, motivation, survival, love, teamwork, and one man's determination to survive. For Campbell, Duan is the personification of the Vietnamese patriot and soldier--a soldier first, a nationalist second, a tacit Communist third. And the author believes that it was men like Duan who drove the world's most powerful nation from Vietnam in 1975. Tom Campbell is a retired Marine Colonel who is an award winning senior Lecturer in management and leadership at the McCombs School of Business at the University of Texas at Austin. While on active duty he was an advisor... a covan... to the Vietnamese Marines for seventeen months, and commanded two platoons, two companies and two battalions.

Small 'ding' on back cover. Introduction by Walter Muir Whitehill. This is a Massachusetts Historical Society Picture Book. Each spring since 1954, the Massachusetts Historical Society has published a Picture Book illustrating some aspect of its collections. While the Boston Athenaeum, the Society for the Preservation of New England Antiquities, and the Bostonian Society are more specifically concerned with the architectural and topographical iconography of Boston, the Massachusetts Historical Society has among its paintings, prints, and photographs, some little known and highly useful views in this field. The Massachusetts Historical Society is a major historical archive specializing in early American, Massachusetts, and New England history. It is the oldest historical society in the United States, having been established in 1791. The Society was founded on January 24, 1791, by Reverend Jeremy Belknap to collect, preserve, and document items of American history. He and the nine other founding members donated family papers, books, and artifacts to the Society to form its initial collection. Its first manuscript was published in 1792, becoming the first historical society publication in the United States. Today the Society continues to collect, preserve, and communicate historical information about Massachusetts and the United States.

While responding to actual social needs in accordance with economic trends and other temporal developments, we have evolved into an organization that is characterized by its members’ cutting-edge sensitivity. Our mission for the 21st century, an age requiring further advancements in design, is to expand the definition of “graphic design” and work toward creation of a new stage in its history. In 1981, the Association published the first issue of its annual, Graphic Design in Japan. A work of high quality with first rate production values it did much to grow JAGDA's membership over the following years.

Aberdeen Proving Ground: U. S. Army Medical Research Institute of Chemical Defense, 1989. First Edition [stated], presumed first printing. Wraps. Format is approximately 8.25 inches by 11 inches. vii, , 27,  pages. Tables. Figures. Definitions. Ink notation on page v. The contents include: Preface, Contributors, Introduction, Overview of the Nerve Agent Pretreatment Decision Tree Network, Detailed Description, Rational for Animal Model Selection, and Definitions. This report addresses Decision Tree Networks for Anticonvulsant, Antivesicant, Cholinolytic, Pretreatment, and Reactivator. The objective of the Decision Tree Network development project was to provide a management concept and program strategy that would facilitate the rapid identification of the best candidate compounds. The Summary states: Pretreatments selected using this decision tree network may be used as adjuncts to or replacements for the benchmark pretreatment, pyridostigmine. Compounds that pass all of the tests in this network will be superior to the benchmark pretreatment. This does not imply necessarily that they will be more effecting in promoting survival; rather, the compounds may have higher safety margins, induce a more rapid recovery after agent challenge, or possess similar desirable attributes. The data to be obtained from this decision tree are sufficient to allow selection of pretreatment compounds worthy of further study in the predevelopment phase.
