Bottom edge has a tear and chipping near the center of the sheets. Stained. Illustrated front cover. It appears to have become disbound and was stapled twice on the left side to hold it together. Front cover has a large black and white photograph of Al Donahue next to a drawing of a person in a feathered cap with a basket. Second page and read cover each have snippets of three songs with commentary. Pages 3-5 present the words and music of the Fitzgerald-Freeman classic. It was her 1938 version of the nursery rhyme, "A-Tisket, A-Tasket", a song she co-wrote, that brought her public acclaim. "A-Tisket, A-Tasket" became a major hit on the radio and was also one of the biggest-selling records of the decade. "A Tisket A Tasket" is a nursery rhyme first recorded in America in the late nineteenth century. It was used as the basis for a very successful and highly regarded 1938 recording by Ella Fitzgerald, composed by Fitzgerald in conjunction with Al Feldman (later known as Van Alexander). It has a Roud Folk Song Index number of 13188. Van Alexander (May 2, 1915 – July 19, 2015) was an American bandleader, arranger, and composer. Van Alexander was born Alexander Van Vliet Feldman. He landed a job selling arrangements to Chick Webb in the middle of the 1930s. A-Tisket, A-Tasket" became a hit for Webb and Ella Fitzgerald. Alexander arranged other nursery rhymes for jazz, such as "Where, Oh Where Has My Little Dog Gone?" He worked in Hollywood extensively as a composer, arranger, and conductor for film scores.

New York: Century Music Publishing Company, c1905. Conservatory Publication Society, Conservatory Edition. Sheet Music. 6 pages. Format is approximately 10.5 inches by 14 inches. Decorative front cover, Cover is separated. In addition to Massa's in de Cold Cold Ground (pages 3-5), page 2 contains Up In A Swing by R. A. Montaine (A Sweet Swing Melody full of Rhythm and Expression.) [Copyright 1902] Page 6 contains Flowers and Ferns by R. A. Keiser (A Charming, expressive and interesting Tone Poem.) [Copyright 1905]. This song is by Stephen Foster. The three pieces are music only, with no lyrics provided. Massa's was one of Foster’s most popular songs when it was first published, it is now considered an embarrassment to his legacy, since it is cast as a lament by African slaves for their dead white master. While Foster did draw musical inspiration from spirituals that he heard and sympathized with the North during the Civil War, we can safely say that this song presents a highly sentimentalized portrait of slavery. That did not stop the song from being used in numerous stage productions of Uncle Tom’s Cabin in the mid-19th century. Originally titled with only Cold used once, sometimes the title is said with the word “cold” repeated, as it was often referred to after the Civil War. This song war reportedly first sung by the Christie Minstrels in 1852.

New York: PublicAffairs, 2006. First Edition [Stated], First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xvii, , 251,  pages. Notes. Additional Reading. Index. Inscribed by the author on the title page. Inscription reads April 27, 2007 For Eric Green with Regards---Sweig. In 1945, the U.S. was the founding impulse behind the cornerstones of the international community--the World Bank, International Monetary Fund, and most of all, the United Nations. Untainted by colonialism or fascism, heroic in warfare and idealistic at home, the U.S. presented itself as a paragon to inspire a less noble and divided world. Sixty years later, that perception had almost completely been reversed. America had, in fact, quietly sowed the seeds of its own decline in the eyes of the world in its own backyard. Anti-Americanism flourished among America's closest allies beyond the Americas in a way, and to a depth, not seen before. As this reaches a crucial tipping point, Julia E. Sweig offers a masterly and incisive history of what went wrong, and a feisty and compelling prescription for how to sort it out. Anti-Americanism, now a global phenomenon, was road tested in South America when most of the rest of the world was too distracted to notice or care. There, under the guise of anti-communism, we sponsored dictatorships, turned a blind eye to killing squads, and tolerated the subversion of democracy. Almost nobody knew,, so it didn't really matter, right? Wrong on two counts. First, South America remembered. And second, encouraged by our success, we convinced ourselves that almost nobody knew, so it didn't really matter, right?
New York: Bantam Books, 1970. Fifth printing stated. Mass market paperback. , 250 pages. Cover worn, torn, taped, creased, soiled and chipped. Some page discoloration. Introduction by Jean Genet. Jean Genet (19 December 1910 – 15 April 1986) was a French novelist, playwright, poet, essayist, and political activist. George Lester Jackson (September 23, 1941 – August 21, 1971) was an American author, activist, and convicted criminal. While serving a sentence for armed robbery in 1961, Jackson became involved in revolutionary activity and co-founded the Marxist–Leninist Black Guerrilla Family. In 1961, he was convicted of armed robbery (stealing $70 at gunpoint from a gas station) and sentenced to one year to life in prison. During his first years at San Quentin State Prison, Jackson became involved in revolutionary activity. He was described by prison officials as egocentric and anti-social. In 1966, Jackson met and befriended W.L. Nolen, who introduced him to Marxist and Maoist ideology. The two founded the Black Guerrilla Family in 1966 based on Marxist and Maoist political thought. In speaking of his ideological transformation, Jackson remarked "I met Marx, Lenin, Trotsky, Engels, and Mao when I entered prison and they redeemed me." In 1970, he was charged, along with two other Soledad Brothers, with the murder of Correctional Officer John Vincent Mills. The same year, he published Soledad Brother: The Prison Letters of George Jackson, a combination of autobiography and manifesto addressed to an African American audience. The book became a bestseller and earned Jackson personal fame. Jackson was killed during an attempted prison escape in 1971.

Contents include: The Un-Americans by Alvah Bessie; The Glory Train (from "Iron City") by Lloyd L. Brown; Let America Be America Again; Live with Lightning by Mitchell Wilson; The Strangest Dream; The Old Man by Alexander Saxton; and Solidarity Forever. Alvah Cecil Bessie (June 4, 1904 – July 21, 1985) was an American novelist, journalist and screenwriter who was blacklisted by the movie studios for being one of the Hollywood Ten who refused to testify before the House Un-American Activities Committee. Bessie then joined the American Communist Party and worked as the film reviewer for the left-wing magazine The New Masses.[ Bessie wrote screenplays for Warner Bros., and other studios during the mid and late 1940s. He was nominated for an Academy Award for Best Original Story for the patriotic Warner's film Objective Burma (1945). His career came to a halt in 1947, when he was summoned before the House Un-American Activities Committee (HUAC). He refused to deny or confirm involvement in the Communist Party, and in 1950, he became one of the Hollywood Ten being found guilty of Contempt of Congress, for which he was imprisoned for ten months, and blacklisted. After his release from prison, he worked at the hungry i nightclub in San Francisco, running the lights and sound board and frequently introducing performers. Bessie left the Communist Party in the 1950s. In 1957, Bessie wrote a novel fictionalizing his experiences with the HUAC, The Un-Americans.
Philadelphia, Pennsylvania: University of Pennsylvania Press, 2006. First Printing [Stated]. Hardcover. xii, , 186 pages. Bookplate signed by the author with a sentiment on fep. Notes in ink on rep. Some pencil marks to text noted. Preface, Notes, and Index. The chapters are: The Imperative of Triage; Perceptions of the Terrorist Threat; Measuring the Terrorist Threat: What is the Evidence?; The Cabal, The Invasion of Iraq, and the Origins of the War on Terror; The War on Terror Whirlwind; and Freeing America From the War on Terror. Ian Steven Lustick (born 1949) is an American political scientist and specialist on the modern history and politics of the Middle East. He held the Bess W. Heyman Chair in the department of Political Sciences at the University of Pennsylvania. He completed his Ph.D. at the University of California, Berkeley in 1976 with a dissertation titled Arabs in the Jewish State, later adapted for a book of that title. He spent 1979-1980 as an analyst for the Bureau of Intelligence and Research of the Department of State. He was subsequently a professor at Dartmouth College, where he taught for 15 years. Lustick became more broadly known with the publication of his book Trapped in the War on Terror in which he argues that the War on Terrorism is an irrational policy for fighting America's enemies. He argues that this policy was initially conceived of by a neo-conservative cabal at the Project for a New American Century who were determined to shift the direction of U.S. foreign policy towards unilateralism. Given a number of political features unique to the US system, Lustick concluded, the War on Terror has ultimately turned into something beyond anyone's control.

Wraps with two staples on the left side. 50 pages per notation on report cover. DTIC page count is 53, plus covers. Red Lettering on spine. This report was classified as CONFIDENTIAL but later downgraded to UNCLASSIFIED. The authors were with the Naval Material Laboratory located as the New York Naval Shipyard in Brooklyn, NY. The Contents include: Part 1: Evaluation of Laboratory Methods for Determining Thermal Protection of Uniforms, with chapters on Introduction, Procedure, Results, Discussion, and Conclusions and Recommendations. This is followed by Part 2: Effects of Thermal Radiation on a Standard-Refenence Material, which chapters on Introduction, Procedure, Results, Discussion, and Conclusions and Recommendations. There is an Appendix on Basic Thermal Measurements and References. There are numerous Figures and Tables listed. The purpose of Project 8.2, Operation Plumbbob, was to determine the adequacy of the laboratory methods employed in the study of the effects of intense thermal radiation on materials. The primary objectives wee to determine the adequacy of physical methods for studying thermal damage to materials and for evaluating, by means of a physical skin simulant, the protection afforded by clothing to personnel against intense thermal radiation. A secondary objective of the project was to compare the burns predicted from the temperatures of the skin simulant behind an irradiated fabric assembly and the burns obtained on animals under identical exposure configurations. Measurements of thermal radiation were made successfully, and showed reasonable agreement with the generalized pulse.
Natick, MA: U.S. Army, Army Quartermaster Research and Engineering Command, 1959. Defense Technical Information Center reprint 2004. Wraps with two staples on the left side. , 48,  pages, plus covers. Red lettering on spine. Downgraded from Official Use Only to Unclassified. Issued by the Headquarters Field Command Defense Atomic Support Agency, Sandia Base, Albuquerque, NM. Contents includes Preface, Introduction, Procedure, Results, Discussion, Conclusions and Recommendations, five Appendices, and References. Numerous tables included. The objectives were to evaluate in the field, under live conditions, in an actual nuclear detonation, the performance of clothing and other items developed for the protection of the individual soldier and to provide assistance to the personnel of Project 8.2 in an investigation of the feasibility of using a skin stimulant as a substitute for animal skin in studying weapon effects. The items developed to provide thermal protection for the soldier included two experimental hot-weather uniform ensembles, three shielding materials, a protective cream, and a three-layer flashoff-reflector-insulating systems. these were exposed during Shot Pricilla to anticipated thermal energies varying from 10 to 25 cal/cm2, together with appropriates controls while using white-skinned pigs a test subjects. Both experimentally designed uniform ensembles provided considerably greater protection than did the control. However, all uniform assemblies were so damaged at all exposure levels as to be judged functionally unsuitable. All shielding materials were destroyed, but the efficiency of the shielding principle was demonstrated. It was considered that the overall objectives of the test were met successfully.

Appendix A Illustrations and Tables (numerous items). Sections simulating four types of frame building structures were exposed to TUMBLER Shots 3 and 4. The four types wee: (1) cubicle room with furnishing, (2) wall-corner, (3) Cornice-corner, and (4) roof. Sections 2 and 3 were exposed with and without a fine flash fuel. Douglas-fir springwood was charred at least slightly out to about 13,000 feel (radiant exposure 4.0 cal/cm2) by Shot 3 and about 10,000 feet (radiant exposure 5.1 ca./cm2) by Shot 4. Sustained burning, either as glowing or flaming, took place only in fine fuels. It was concluded that the flash of radiant energy from an atomic explosion will set sustained primary fire in fine fuel, but in general not in more massive fuels such as lumber and plywood. It was recommended that field study of primary fires on building structures be confined to find fuels to ascertain the conditions under which they become ignited to self-sustaining fire and to such other shapes and materials as may be shown by laboratory experimentation to be a possible fuel for sustained primary fire.
Washington DC: Federal Civil Defense Administration, 1953. Defense Technical Information Center reprint 2004. Wraps with two staples on left side. , 66,  pages, plus covers. Red lettering on spine. Mailing label on back cover. Contents include Introduction, Test Results, Discussion, Appendix A: Specifications, and Appendix B: Drawings. Contains numerous illustrations. Two typical two-story frame houses, without utilities, were located at 7500 and 3500 ft from Ground Zero for a 16.4-kt bomb exploded at 300 ft. above the ground. Exposure of the houses was for public demonstration purposes and to study the gamma-radiation scatter and the effects of thermal radiation and blast on each house. Both houses were furnished, and , in each, department-sore mannequins were placed in the dining and living rooms. Damage to mannequins indicates that human beings without shelter in the same locations would have been injured in the far-range house and either killed or seriously injured in the near house by the effects of blast. Conventional methods of wood-frame house construction, even with the best of materials and workmanship, cannot provide sufficient strength to resist pressures such as existed at the near range. New designs would have to be prepared in order to provide a house to resist these pressures.

Wraps, with two staples on left side. , 44,  pages, plus covers. Mailing label on back cover. Red lettering on spine. The authors were associated with the Edison Electric Institute and the Federal Civil Defense Administration. Contents include: Introduction. Equipment and Preshot Tests, Observations, Effects and Conclusions. There are numerous illustrations. Duplicate electric-power installations consisting of transmission, substation, and distribution equipment were constructed in areas 4700 and 10,500 ft from Ground Zero (GZ) for use in Project 35.1 in the Apple II shot. The Test was made to determine the median survival range of the electric equipment; the extent of damage and the nature of the repairs required to restore disrupted service; and the ability of electric systems, in comparison to industrial plants and the residential communities they serve, to withstand the effects of an atomic explosion. The damage was confined to the transmission and distribution circuits at the 4700-ft area and was of such a nature that the equipment could have been easily and quickly repaired. In the same area, typical homes were completely destroyed.

Petr Beckmann (November 13, 1924 – August 3, 1993) was a professor of electrical engineering who became a well-known advocate of nuclear power. In 1939, his family fled Czechoslovakia to escape the Nazis. From 1942 to 1945, he served in a Czech squadron of the Royal Air Force. He worked as a radar mechanic on the newly invented radar systems. He received a B.Sc. in 1949, a Ph.D. in 1955, and a D.Sc. in 1962, all from Prague's Czech Academy of Sciences in electrical engineering. He defected to the United States in 1963 and became a Professor of electrical engineering at the University of Colorado. Beckmann wrote several electrical engineering textbooks and non-technical works. By 1968 he had founded Golem Press, which published most of his books, including The Health Hazards of Not Going Nuclear (1976), which argued in favor of nuclear power during the height of the anti-nuclear movement by contrasting the cost, in human terms, with the equivalent costs of the alternatives available. Beckmann also wrote A History of , documenting the history of the calculation of . In 1981, he took early retirement with Emeritus status, in order to devote himself fully to what he saw as the defense of science, technology and free enterprise. He wrote some 60 scientific papers and eight technical books.

Robert Endicott Osgood (1921–1986) was an expert on foreign and military policy, and the author of several significant texts on international relations. He taught at Johns Hopkins University for twenty five years, and also served as an advisor to Ronald Reagan during the latter's 1980 presidential campaign. He attended Harvard University, where he attained his bachelor's degree as well as his doctorate. He also served in World War II. His teaching career began in 1956 when he became assistant professor of political science at the University of Chicago. In 1961 he became Christian A. Herter Professor of American Foreign Policy in the School of Advanced International Studies at Johns Hopkins University. In 1969, he took a leave to serve for a year as a staff aide on the U.S. National Security Council, headed by Henry A. Kissinger, in the Nixon Administration. Osgood directed the Washington Center of Foreign Policy Research at Johns Hopkins University from 1965 to 1973. From 1973 to 1979 he was dean of the School of Advanced International Studies. He served as an advisor during Ronald Reagan's 1980 presidential campaign, and in 1983, Secretary of State George P. Shultz named him to the Policy Planning Council.

Solomon "Solly" Zuckerman, Baron Zuckerman OM KCB FRS (30 May 1904 – 1 April 1993) was a British public servant, zoologist and operational research pioneer. He is best remembered as a scientific advisor to the Allies on bombing strategy in the Second World War, for his work to advance the cause of nuclear non-proliferation, and for his role in bringing attention to global economic issues. During the Second World War, Zuckerman worked on several research projects for the British Government, including measuring the effect of bombing on people and buildings and an assessment of the bombardment (Operation Corkscrew) of an Italian island in 1943. He was thus one of the pioneers of the science of operational research. He was chief scientific adviser to the Ministry of Defence from 1960 to 1966, and the first chief scientific adviser to the British Government from 1964 to 1971. He published Scientists and War in 1966. Zuckerman wrote two volumes of autobiography: From Apes to Warlords and Monkeys Men and Missiles.

Sandia Base, Albuquerque, NM: Headquarters Field Command Defense Atomic Support Agency, 1960. Defense Technical Information Center reprint 2004. Wraps with two staples on the left side. , 78,  pages, plus covers. Red lettering on spine. This has been downgraded from CONFIDENTIAL to UNCLASSIFIED. Includes Introduction, Procedure, Results, Discussion, Appendix A: Methods of Predicting Weapon-Effect Imput Levels; Appendix V Overpressure Measurements; Appendix C Transmission of Air-Blast Shock Into an Airship Envelop, Appendix D Suspension System Analysis, and References. Includes figures and tables. Four airships, U.S. Navy Bureau of Aeronautics Nos. 40, 46, 77, and 92, participated during Operation Plumbbob to determine the response characteristics of the Model ZSG-3 airship when subjected to a nuclear detonation in order to establish criteria for safe escape distances for airship delivery of antisubmarine warfare special weapons. Restrained response data for 0.40-psi overpressure input were obtained during Shot Franklin with the airship moored tail to the blast. Unrestrained response data for 0.75-psi overpressure input were obtained during Shot Stokes with the airship free ballooned, tail to the blast, 300 feet above ground. The first airship exposed to overpressure experienced a structural failure of the nose cone when it was rammed into the mooring mast, together with a tear of the forward ballonet which necessitated deflation of the envelope. The second airship broke in half and crashed following a circumferential failure of the envelope originating at the bottom of the envelope, forward of the car. The test results were considered to be a suitable basis for further analytical studies of airship response to nuclear blast effects beyond the scope of this report.
