An unalloyed delight in the rich, bourbon-flavored Southern tradition...Splendidly Realized Portraits. Lee Smith has held the mirror up to a certain slice of life and if the image seems a a little manic or crazy, well, it's because the life's that way, not the glass...for those of us tired of the witless caricatures of Southern folks in The Dukes of Hazard or Dallas, here is the real thing, potato salad and all.

Garden City, NY: Doubleday & Company, Inc., 1965. American Edition. Presumed first printing thus. Hardcover. ix, , 265,  pages. Footnotes. DJ has some wear and soiling. Includes Preface to the American Edition, as well as chapters on Fifteen Years of Technological Revolution, 1945-60; The Strategic Theory Takes Shape; Europe and the McNamara Doctrine; The Independent French Deterent; The Future of the Atlantic Alliance; Logic and Paradoxes of the Strategic Theory; and Final Considerations. This book grew out of a course on the influence of nuclear weapons on international relations that Raymond Aron taught at the Institut d"etudes politiques in 1962-63. The book ends with a chapter on Final Considerations. In that final chapter the author tries to look ahead to four variables governing the future of the game of deterrence: The number of countries possessing atomic or thermonuclear weapons; The qualitative arms race, the possible political developments, involving either a realignment of nations, and the consistency or inconsistency of strategic doctrines. This book focuses mainly on the fourth variable. Originally written to explain the U.S. position to the French, the book is equally valuable for explaining it to Americans. American theorist have generally emphasized the individuality of their own positions instead of the ideas and ways of thinking common to all of them. Finally, and perhaps most vital ,Aron points out where Americans and Europeans have misinterpreted each other's views, and separates the unnecessary confusion from the real issues at stake for the Western allies.

DJ is price clipped, worn, torn, soiled and chipped and is taped to the boards. In Chemical Warfare, Frederic J. Brown, presents a cogent, innovative framework for understanding the historical forces that have restrained the use of WMD and how they continue to have relevance today. Analyzing both world wars, he argues that the restraints on use were complex and often unpredictable and ranged from the political to the technological. The author offers a detailed examination of American chemical warfare policy as it was shaped by industry and public sentiment, as well as national and military leaders. The organization of the book into three parts reflects the importance of battlefield experiences during the First World War and of international political restraints as they evolved during the interwar years and culminated in "no first use" policies by major powers in World War II. Written at the height of controversy about the U.S. use of chemicals in Vietnam, Chemical Warfare offers a valuable historical perspective, as relevant now in its analysis of chemical and also nuclear policy as it was when first published.

London: Peter Owen Limited, 1957. Presumed First printing thus. [Originally published in the 1920s, this is one of the Peter Owen Classics]. Hardcover. Format is approximately 5 inches by 7.75 inches. 132 pages. DJ is in a plastic sleeve and has substantial wear, tears, soiling and chips. Some page discoloration. Jean Cocteau has for long been known as one of the most outstanding figures of contemporary literature. His films, his plays, his books, have won him international renown, but it is only recently that his stature as a modern novelist has been appreciated. In 1966, Children of the Game was first published in England, winning instant and wide acclaim. The Impostor is another one of his more important works. At the beginning of the war there was complete confusion: confusion which persisted until the end. For, like a fruit, the short war might have grown and dropped from the tree, whilst a war prolonged for exceptional reasons, firmly attached to the branch, went on growing, ever presenting new problems and new lessons to be learnt. The Impostor is set in France at the outset of the 1914-1918 war, evoking the atmosphere and environment of that period through the reactions and interactions of the characters. Thomas, at the age of 16, lives in a self-created world of fantasy. Adopting an impressive pose, he encounters the widowed Princesse de Bormes and her daughter Henriette. The girl falls in love with Thomas, nor is her mother indifferent to this imaginative young "impostor." The fate, love and grief of these and other vital characters, is played out alongside the vicissitudes of the war.

Inscription reads: For Sean and Bets Lisa Scottoline, Francesca Scotttoline Serritella. Lisa Scottoline, along with her daughter Francesca, are back with more wild and wonderful wit and wisdom. In this hilarious collection, they give their mother-daughter perspective on everything from blind dates to empty calories, as well as life with the feistiest octogenarian on the planet, Mother Mary, who won't part with her thirty-year-old bra. Three generations of women, triple the laughs--and the love. Inspired by their weekly "Chick Wit" column for The Philadelphia Inquirer, Lisa and Francesca spill all their family secrets---which will sound a lot like yours. And you'll have to put this book down, just to stop laughing. LISA ON DIETING: I'm backsliding with carbohydrates, which is the food version of ex-sex. FRANCESCA ON CUTTING THE CORD: I thought I said, "I am going to see my cousin's new apartment," but in Mom-speak that translates to: "I am going to meet certain death in the New York City subway tunnels that are soon to be my tomb." LISA ON MOTHER MARY: Most people have a list of Things To Do, but Mother Mary has a list of Things Not To Do. At the top is Don't Go to the Movies. Other entries include Don't Eat Outside With The Bugs and Don't Walk All Over This Cockamamie Mall. FRANCESCA ON BEING SINGLE: I'm addicted to the wedding announcements. Worse, I find myself subtracting my age from the bride's. I thought I was a modern woman, turns out I'm a Cathy cartoon. And so much more!
New York, New York: Vantage Press, Inc., 1980. First Edition [stated], presumed first printing. Hardcover. , 166,  pages. DJ has some wear and soiling and is in a plastic sleeve. Ex-library with the usual library markings. Inscribed by the author, Al Klement, on the front free endpaper. Inscription reads: With best regards, in all humility, to the congregation of Temple Emanuel. Al Klement. This inscription is covered over with clear plastic tape. This is a work of fiction. The names of the people are entirely fictitious, although some come close to being real, and people like them did exist. The place names are real with one or two exceptions, and the names are modern, as some have changed over the years and some are called by more than one name. The author has taken an author's license in order to make a story, but generally, have used true historical facts with regard to ethnic origins and migrations of people. All of the ethnic groups settling in Texas in the 1860s and 1870s and those before had their problems with prejudices, but people working to stay alive and wanting a better life put a bunch of prejudices aside and became neighborly if not always friendly. Of course, there were and always are exceptions. Steeped in historical realism and the vernacular of the West, this is a novel of post-Civil War Texas that tells a gripping story of frontier justice. The men of the Flying Y ranch and of the neighboring township are faced with the menace of a shadowy band of rustlers, masterminded by an insidious boss. How they close ranks and rise to meet the threat is, in miniscule, the story of how the law became a viable force on the frontier.

It also has a Bibliography. Project 4.2 was designed to study the direct (primary) air blast injury, in animals, from an atomic weapon in the range of 20 to 50 psi under circumstances affording protections against missiles, thermal, and ionizing radiation and to estimate the probably direct air blast hazard in man. Two animal species of widely different body weights (700 rats and 56 dogs) were exposed, together with air pressure recorders, in aluminum cylinders, covered by sandbags and dire but open t both ends, at seven stations distributed within the intended overpressure range of 20 to 50 psi of Shot. About 200 rats were likewise exposed in Shot 9. Most of the animals were dead upon recovery. The rats recovered from Shot 9 were exposed to a recorded pressure of 18 to 24 psi. The autopsy findings were typical of those seen following exposure to air blast from HE or in the shock tube. Laboratory studies were planned to evaluate the relative importance of the several blast wave parameters in the production of injury. R. H. Draeger was at one time the NMRI's head of atomic-radiation-and-detection.

Bob and Melinda Blanchard's first book, A Trip to the Beach, became inspiration for countless people who were ready to start living their dreams. After the Blanchards' published A Trip to the Beach, they found that readers responded personally and passionately, often buying multiple copies to give friends and family. They received countless invitations to lecture and requests for national television appearances, and have been asked to develop a series for PBS. Through delightful and moving stories, reflections, notes--and a soupcon of advice--the Blanchards have written a stunning, inspirational manifesto where truly living what you love becomes a revolutionary act, a rebellion against the common life. They show how, through self-trust, personal adjustment, and daily acts of commitment, each of us can live the life we love and make every day a personal treasure. Full of warmth, humor, wisdom, and charm, LWYL is the Blanchard's love letter to life, a celebration of unusual choices, and a thank you gift to all of their fans.

Major Chetwynd John Drake "Jock" Haswell (18 July 1919 – 21 January 2018), who also wrote as George Foster, was a British military and intelligence author and former British intelligence officer. He was "Author for Service Intelligence" 1966–1984. Haswell was trained at Sandhurst c. 1938/9 - 1941. He joined the Queen's Royal Regiment on 3 April 1941. Later in 1941 he was stationed in India, and saw local action. He was promoted Major on 3 July 1952. He retired from the army on 29 April 1960. Haswell's later work was mostly writing, continuing a thread from his military and intelligence work. His James II was reviewed in the Times of 29 July 1972 by Geoffrey Homes. James, Duke of York, brother of Charles II, commanded the French Army in Champagne and the Spanish Army in the Low Countries; he was offered the highest military command in Italy and the most senior naval post in Spain. As Lord High Admiral he led the English fleet into action in two great naval battles. 'A most glorious young Prince,' wrote one of his contemporaries. Yet to many he is only the King who threw away all the great advantages passed on to him when his brother died, and fled ignominiously into exile.
