Bernhard Blume, born in Stuttgart, Germany, was a successful and much-discussed dramatist in his native country before his forced emigration to the United States in 1936. The years around 1930 represented the peak of his fame in the theater; it was then that critics, alluding to the famous three B's in music, spoke of the three B's of the Contemporary German stage: Betolt Brecht, Arnolt Bronnen, and Bernhard Blume. Bernhard Blume (7 April 1901 in Stuttgart – 22 July 1978 in La Jolla) was an emigre from Nazi Germany who became a professor of German literature at Mills College, Ohio State University, Harvard University, and the University of California, San Diego. He authored plays, a novel, and an autobiography.

Also includes Acknowledgments, Notes, and Index. Using the landmark 2008 case of District of Columbia v. Heller as a springboard, constitutional law scholar Adam Winkler has written a compelling history of America's centuries long battle over the right to bear arms. Contrary to the extremist views of hard-liners on both sides, Winkler shows that Americans have always had both the right to own guns and gun control. Beginning his narrative in the late eighteenth century, Winkler reveals that the founding fathers, who wrote the "maddeningly ambiguous" Second Amendment, favored gun laws far more restrictive than the NRA would ever support; that nearly everybody in the Wild West had guns, but vigorously enforced gun control was commonplace in frontier towns; and that the NRA used to sponsor burdensome gun control laws that the organization today fights to overturn. This book shows that we can have both an individual right to have guns for self-defense and, at the same time, laws designed to improve gun safety. The two ideas--the right to bear arms and gun control--are not mutually exclusive propositions. In fact, America has always had both.

Winterbotham's life spans the whole of this century, and he has been involved in some of its most dramatic and dangerous moments. Frederick William Winterbotham CBE (16 April 1897 – 28 January 1990) was a British Royal Air Force officer (latterly a Group Captain) who during World War II supervised the distribution of Ultra intelligence. His book The Ultra Secret was the first popular account of Ultra to be published in Britain. In 1916 he transferred to the Royal Flying Corps and became a fighter pilot. He was shot down and captured on 13 July 1917, in Passchendaele, and spent the rest of the war in Holzminden prisoner-of-war camp. After the war, Winterbotham began the process of building up an intelligence service for the RAF. His job was to gather information on the development of military aviation in hostile or potentially hostile countries. He recruited agents, and filed and analyzed their reports. In 1938, Winterbotham recruited Sidney Cotton to carry out some very successful aerial reconnaissance over Italy and Germany in 1939–40 in a private Lockheed 12A aircraft.

Includes Note on Sources, Notes, Suggestions for Further Reading, and Index, as well as 41 Plates; 11 Black and white maps; and a Preface and Abbreviations. This book is the standard one-volume history of the Royal Navy in the era of World War I. The story is well told, especially in its clear rendering of such potentially confusing actions as Jutland and the Falkland Islands. Richard Hough is a rare combination: An excellent naval historian, as well as a master at putting naval matters in their proper political and strategic perspective. It is not surprising that he has constructed a superb account of this important era in naval warfare. The story is well told, especially in its clear rendering of such potentially confusing actions as Jutland and the Falkland Islands. Richard Hough's vivid rendering of this sea war brings each battle to life, from the initial confrontations to Germany's capitulation at the end of 1918. Hough describes the climactic 1916 Battle of Jutland, as well as major and minor battles fought in the Falklands, the North Sea, and the Dardanelles. Richard Alexander Hough (15 May 1922 – 7 October 1999) was a British author and historian specializing in maritime history. Hough won the Daily Express Best Book of the Sea Award in 1972. After leaving school, he joined the Royal Air Force at the beginning of World War II and received his initial flight training at an airfield not far from Hollywood. He later flew Hurricanes and Typhoons. He also wrote under the nom de plume Bruce Carter. He wrote 90 books.

The American Society of Naturalists, 1954. Reprinted from The American Naturalist, Vol. LXXXVIII, No. 841, July-August, 1954. Wraps. Format is approximately 7 inches by 10 inches. Stapled twice on left side. Pages 269-286. Figures. Tables. Literature Cited. Stamp and ink notation on front cover. Stamped name of Donald J. Kimeldorf on front cover. Kimeldorf was an internationally renown scientist. Dominant lethality in the offspring of male mice exposed in lead hemispheres to neutron radiation from a nuclear detonation was determined for ten different doses by mating the males to unexposed females, dissecting the females at a late stage in pregnancy and recording the number of living and dead embryos, resorption sites and corpora lutea. Data from early matings (2 to 6 days after irradiation) and late matings (19 to 31 days after irradiation) were tabulated separately. Comparison of the results with those from a similar experiment with fast neutrons from a cyclotron shows: 1. For comparable levels of total effect, the two sets of results do not differ significantly in the distribution of deaths according to age of embryos. 2. The increase in dominant lethality observed when the offspring of late matings are compared with those of early matings is similar in the two experiments. 3. The biological effectiveness of detonation neutrons relative to cyclotron neutrons lies between 0.80 and 1.18, the minimum and maximum estimates obtained when allowance is made for uncertainty in the physical measurements of the gamma radiation contamination in the detonation experiment. It may be concluded that the present data show no significant difference in the effectiveness of these neutrons in inducing dominant lethality in mice.

In the summer of 1947, under the auspices of the National Research Council's Committee on Atomic Casualties and with' the cooperation of the Public Health and Welfare Section of SCAP and of the Japanese National Institute of Health, two of us (W. W. G. and M. L. G.) made a preliminary survey of the physical growth and developmental status of children who had survived the atomic bombing of Hiroshima and Nagasaki. The data which we obtained included some physical measurements and x-ray films of the hand and wrist and of various other joint areas of children from the first six grades of elementary schools of those two cities. Comparable anthropometric and roentgenological observations were made also on children in Kure and Sasebo, who served as controls for those in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, respectively. The population of each control city was considered to be sufficiently similar to that of the city with which it was compared to justify the assumption that any significant difference in physical status between the children of a control and of an exposed city might reasonably be ascribed to the direct or indirect effects of the atomic bombing to which the latter had been subjected. Dr. Frederick Snell, who was conducting some hematological studies for the Atomic Bomb Casualty Commission, aided greatly in our work in 1947, both by helping to obtain access to children and in arranging for X-ray and supplies needed in our project.

This study was an investigation on animal fetuses and clinical studies of postconception pelvic irradiation have demonstrated a damaging effect of radiation upon the development of the fetus. This paper presents a report of investigations being made on the effects of the atomic explosion on fetuses of women who were in Nagasaki on Aug. 9, 1945. Collection of data: Patient Selection.—This study was conducted in Nagasaki during the first half of 1951. On the basis of information obtained from the pregnancy records of the genetics program, lists were made of all women who, at the time of the explosion, were of childbearing age (for the purposes of this study, 17 to 50 years of age) and were residing in Nagasaki. A home investigation was done by trained personnel to determine if the mother had been pregnant at the time of the bombing. Kimeldorf was a major scientific leader.

The syndrome of acute radiation injury to be considered in this article is the term applied to the symptom complex, or diseased state, which results from exposure of the whole body or a major portion of it to the initial nuclear radiation of an atomic bomb. This term should be clearly distinguished from irradiation sickness, which is commonly used to describe the symptom complex resulting from therapeutic irradiation. It should also be distinguished from surface radiation injury. This term is properly applied to injuries of the skin and subcutaneous tissues resulting from x-radiation or from contact or near contact with radioactive material, such as fission products and induced radioactivity. Injuries of this type related to atomic energy are due largely to beta-ray-emitting isotopes. Internal radiation injury may result from the selective deposition, such as in bone or thyroid, of radioactive material that has been inhaled or absorbed through the gastrointestinal tract or wounds. Kimeldorf was a major scientific leader. His book with Ed Hunt entitled "Ionizing radiation: Neural function and behavior" is a thorough description of the physiological and behavioral effects of exposure to ionizing radiation.

As a reporter and war correspondent, he covered American politics, the Spanish–American War, the assassination of President McKinley, and the Russo-Japanese War, as well as World War I and the Russian Revolution. He also published E. H. Harriman's Far Eastern Plans, about Harriman's efforts to secure a lease to the South Manchuria Railway from Japan, as well as The Chicago and Alton Case, defending Harriman's purchase of the Chicago & Alton Railroad from criticism by the ICC and Teddy Roosevelt. Edward Henry Harriman (February 20, 1848 – September 9, 1909) was an American financier and railroad executive. By age 22, he was a member of the New York Stock Exchange. He made a career as a rebuilder of bankrupt railroads. Harriman was nearly 50 years old when in 1897 he became a director of the Union Pacific Railroad. By May 1898, he was chairman of the executive committee, and his word was the law on the Union Pacific system. In 1903, he assumed the office of president of the company. From 1901 to 1909, Harriman was also the president of the Southern Pacific Railroad. At his death Harriman controlled the Union Pacific, the Southern Pacific, the Saint Joseph and Grand Island, the Illinois Central, the Central of Georgia, the Pacific Mail Steamship Company, and Wells Fargo Express.
New York: Collier Books, 1973. Revised Edition, First Collier Books Edition. Trade paperback. 410,  pages. Footnotes. Maps. Cover has some wear and soiling. Some edge soiling. This was previously published under the title The Warsaw Diary of Chaim A. Kaplan. Chaim Aron was born in Gorodishche, Belorussia. He received a talmudical education at the yeshivah of Mir and later studied at the Government Pedagogical Institute in Vilna. In 1902 he settled in Warsaw, where he founded a pioneering elementary Hebrew school, of which he was principal for 40 years. The diarist has an eye for detail as well for major trends. He is concerned with politics as well as with philosophy. Since the diary was his constant companion, Kaplan poured into it a great deal of his intellectual life – his thoughts, his information, and all the conversations he had with his friends. He is not detached from the scene; indeed, he apparently sought out all possible first-hand information and his descriptions deal with the mood of the time, the hour of occurrence. Many seeming contradictions are really the hourly changes of those fantastic times, with the result that at times he condemns the leaders of the Jewish community and at times praises them. He had no use for Adam Czerniakow, the president of the Judenrat whom he accused of usurping power at a time when the Warsaw Jewish community was powerless to elect a leader. Yet when Czerniakow committed suicide because he could no longer bring himself to deliver Jews to the Nazis, Kaplan wrote a noble eulogy of him, commenting: His end proves that he worked and strove for the good of his people, though not everything done in his name was praiseworthy.

Draft, dated 2-25-57 and with a number stamped on first page, has 21 pages, Appendix A (6 figures), and Five additional figures. This bulletin is divided into five major sections: The first section concerns basic radiobiologic information that is required for the basis of answers given in sections II, III,m and IV. Sections II, III, and IV deal with topics concerning injury to human beings; environmental modifications and population group injury. They are presented in question and answer form. Section V gives a general discussion of civil defense applications of this information. The reason for preparing this bulletin in advance of publication of the NCRP Sub-Committee Handbook on "Irradiation Injury" was to provide guidance that was deemed urgently needed by civil defense planners. Survival studies in which plans for defense against nuclear attack needed guidance of this type to formulate realistic scenarios. This bulletin was intended to serve as an interim measure until the Committee's more complete treatment became available. Kimeldorf was a major scientific leader. His book with Ed Hunt entitled "Ionizing radiation: Neural function and behavior" is a thorough description of the physiological and behavioral effects of exposure to ionizing radiation.
