2013. Taylor, John. An Inquiry into the Principles and Policy of the Government of the United States. Originally published: Fredericksburg: Green and Cady, 1814. With an introduction by Roy Franklin Nichols, Yale University Press, 1950. 562 pp. Reprinted 1998, 2013 by The Lawbook Exchange, Ltd. ISBN-13: 9781886363465; ISBN-10: 1886363463. Hardcover. New. * Taylor wrote this important work in 1814 as a reply to John Adams's Defence of the Constitutions of Government of the United States of America. Unlike Adams, he rejects the concept of "a natural aristocracy" of "paper and patronage" and a federal government based on a system of debt and taxes. He considers the American government to be one of divided powers responsible to the sovereign people alone. Opposed to the extent of power awarded to the executive office, he calls for shorter terms for the president and all elected officers. Charles Beard said this work "deserves to rank among the two or three really historic contributions to political science which have been produced in the United States." Originally published in 1814, this is a reprint of the 1950 Yale University Press edition with an introduction by Roy Franklin Nichols. JOHN TAYLOR [1753-1824] was known as "John Taylor of Caroline County, Virginia." He served in the Continental Army and later in the Virginia House of Delegates, then served three terms as a member of the United States Senate. He is considered to be one of the greatest philosophers of agrarian liberalism and was one of the first proponents of states' rights. His works include New Views of the Constitution of the United States (1823), Construction Construed, and Constitutions Vindicated (1820) and A Defence of the Measures of the Administration of Thomas Jefferson, By Curtius (1804).

Norman De Mattos Bentwich OBE MC (28 February 1883 - 8 April 1971) was a British barrister and legal academic. He was the British-appointed attorney-general of Mandatory Palestine and a lifelong Zionist. Bentwich played a major role in the development of Palestinian law. From 1932 to 1951 Bentwich occupied the Chair of International Relations at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. His first lecture, on "Jerusalem, City of Peace", was disrupted by Jewish students who considered him too conciliatory towards the Arabs. Several of the ringleaders were suspended. He was one of the Jewish members of Palestine Administration who in 1929 joined Brit Shalom, a society founded to find rapprochement between Jews and Arabs in Palestine. In his book, Mandate Memories, he stated that "the Balfour Declaration was not an impetuous or sentimental act of the British government, as has been sometimes represented, or a calculated measure of political warfare. It was a deliberate decision of British policy and adopted only after full consultation with the United States and with other Allied Nations." Judah Leon Magnes (July 5, 1877 - October 27, 1948) was a prominent Reform rabbi in both the United States and Mandatory Palestine. He is best remembered as a leader in the pacifist movement of the World War I period, his advocacy of a binational Jewish-Arab state in Palestine, and as one of the most widely recognized voices of 20th century American Reform Judaism. Magnes first visited Ottoman Palestine in 1907, growing a beard in solidarity with the Jewish colonists. At Jaffa he was told of the plans for a Jewish-only town, north of Jaffa, to be called Tel Aviv. He was skeptical that it would ever come about. He made an extensive tour of the region, traveling on horseback and camping at night. The tour included reaching the summit of Mount Hermon. He returned to America by way of the seventh Zionist Congress in The Hague. His wife accompanied him on his second visit in 1912. They stayed in Jerusalem where there was some discussion of establishing a Hebrew University. They also visited Merhavia and Degania in the Galilee. Magnes agreed, however, with the overall anti-Zionist attitudes of Reform Judaism at the time; he strongly disapproved of nationalistic aspects within Judaism, which Zionism represented and supported. To him, Jews living in the Diaspora and Jews living in Palestine were of equal significance to Judaism and Jewish culture; he agreed that a renewed Jewish community in Eretz Israel would enhance Jewish life within the Diaspora. Magnes emigrated to Mandate Palestine in 1922 and maintained that emigration to Eretz Israel was a matter of individual choice; it did not reflect any kind of "negation of the Diaspora", or support for Zionism. He thought that the land of Israel should be built in a "decent manner", or not built at all. In both America and Palestine, Magnes played a key role in founding the internationally reputed Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1918 along with Albert Einstein and Chaim Weizmann. However, the three did not get along, and when, in 1928, Magnes, who was initially responsible only for the university's finances and administrative staff, had his authority extended to academic and professional matters, Einstein resigned from the Board of Governors. Magnes served as the first chancellor of the Hebrew University (1925) and later as its president (1935-1948). Magnes believed that the university was the ideal place for Jewish and Arab cooperation, and worked tirelessly to advance this goal. Magnes's responded to the 1929 Arab revolt in Palestine with a call for a binational solution to Palestine. Magnes dedicated the rest of his life to reconciliation with the local Arabs; he particularly objected to the concept of a specifically Jewish state. In his view, Palestine should be neither Jewish nor Arab. Rather, he advocated a binational state in which equal rights would be shared by all, a view shared by the group Brit Shalom, an organization with which Magnes is often associated, but never joined. In a speech given at the reopening of the university following the 1929 riots Magnes was heckled by members of the audience for speaking of the need for Jews and Arabs to find ways to live and work together. He was also attacked in the Jewish press., Horovitz Publishing Co., Ltd in the East & West Library, New York: HarperCollins Publishers, 1996. First edition. First edition [stated]. First printing [stated]. Hardcover. Very good in very good dust jacket. Inscrived by Christine Whitman on half-title. DJ has slight wear and soililng.. Sewn binding. Paper over boards. Illustrations. Index. This first and only authorized biography of the most exciting, dynamic, and visible woman in the Republican Party--New Jersey Governor Christine Todd Whitman--is based on extensive, exclusive interviews with Whitman herself. A must-read for all who believe themselves politically savvy, and everyone concerned with the future of women in politics. Introduction by Christie Whitman. From the publisher's website: "Patricia Beard is the author of nine nonfiction books and hundreds of nationally published magazine articles. She is the former features editor of Town & Country, former editor-at-large of Elle, and the former style features editor of Mirabella magazine. Beard is also the founder and president of Willowbrook Partners, LLC, for which she writes, oversees the design, and produces privately commissioned books." From WIkipedia: ""Christie" Todd Whitman (born September 26, 1946) is an American Republican politician and author who served as the 50th Governor of New Jersey from 1994 to 2001, and was the Administrator of the Environmental Protection Agency in the administration of President George W. Bush from 2001 to 2003. She was New Jersey's first, and to date, only female governor. She was the second woman and first Republican woman to defeat an incumbent governor in a general election in the United States. She was also the first Republican woman to be reelected governor. Whitman was born Christine Todd in New York City, and grew up in Hunterdon County, New Jersey, the daughter of Eleanor Prentice Todd (ne Schley) and businessman Webster B. Todd, both interested in New Jersey Republican politics. She attended Far Hills Country Day School and the Chapin School in Manhattan. She graduated from Wheaton College in 1968, earning a Bachelor of Arts degree in government. After graduating, she worked on Nelson Rockefeller's presidential campaign. Whitman is a descendant of two New Jersey political families, the Todds and the Schleys, and related by marriage to New York's politically active Whitmans. She is married to John R. Whitman, a private equity investor. They have two children. She is the granddaughter-in-law of former Governor of New York Charles S. Whitman. Her maternal grandfather, Reeve Schley, was a member of Wolf's Head Society at Yale and the vice president of Chase Bank. He was also a longtime president of the Russian-American Chamber of Commerce. Whitman has been a resident of Tewksbury Township, New Jersey. During the Nixon administration, Whitman worked in the Office of Economic Opportunity under the leadership of Donald Rumsfeld. She conducted a national outreach tour for the Republican National Committee, was Deputy Director of the New York State Office in Washington, and worked on aging issues for the Nixon campaign and administration. She was appointed to the Board of Trustees of Somerset County College (now Raritan Valley Community College). Elected to two terms on the Somerset County Board of Chosen Freeholders, she served as Deputy Director and Director of the Board. Among her accomplishments as freeholder was construction of a new county courthouse. From 1988 to 1990 she served as President of the New Jersey Board of Public Utilities in the cabinet of Gov. Thomas Kean. In 1990, Whitman ran for the U.S. Senate against incumbent Bill Bradley, and lost a close election. She was considered a longshot candidate against the popular Bradley. During her campaign, Whitman criticized the income tax hike proposed by then Gov. James Florio, which Bradley did not take a stance on. In 1993, Whitman helped to found the Committee for Responsible Government (CRG), a political advocacy group espousing moderate positions in the Republican Party. (In 1997, the CRG softened its pro-choice stance and renamed itself the Republican Leadership Council. ) Whitman ran against incumbent James Florio for governor in 1993, and defeated him by one percentage point to become the first female governor in New Jersey history. She was the., HarperCollins Publishers, 1996

Be Musée Royal de Mariemont 2009. Hardbound, relie, 285x250mm, French edition . ISBN 978293046930013. Pieter Stockmans est né à Léopoldsburg (Belgique) le 26 octobre 1940. Après des études de sculpture et de céramique à l'Institut provincial d'architecture et des arts appliqués de Hasselt (Provinciaal Hoger Instituut voor Architectuur en Toegepaste Kunsten) entre 1955-1963, il choisit volontairement de s'orienter dans le secteur de la céramique industrielle. Après une spécialisation en Allemagne et en France, à partir de 1966, il entame une longue période comme designer au service de la firme hollandaise Royal Mosa. Il y restera jusqu'en 1989. Parallèlement à cette activité, Pieter Stockmans enseigne le design industriel. Entre 1969 et 1998, il enseigne à la KHLim (Katholieke Hogeschool Limbug) à Genk. Entre 1983 et 1985, spécifiquement « le design céramique » à Eindhoven (Design Akademy Eindhoven). De 1997 à 1999, il est examinateur du très prestigieux Royal College of Art de Londres. A la suite de son exposition au musée de Hasselt en 1981, Pieter Stockmans va doubler son oeuvre de designer d'une oeuvre de plasticien composée de pièces uniques, d'installations et d'intégration à l'architecture. Cette dimension plasticienne de l'oeuvre a fait l'objet de nombreuses expositions. Pour cette raison, le Musée royal de Mariemont a souhaité par l'exposition rendre compte de la contribution de Stockmans au design industriel. Son oeuvre de designer, largement méconnue est pourtant immense et couronnée de succès commerciaux et artistiques (Red Dot Design Award en 1996, Prix Henri van de Velde en 1999.). Ainsi, pour la firme Mosa, dont il contribua au développement, la tasse Sonja est devenue un modèle d'ergonomie connu mondialement. Elle fut produite à 50 millions d'exemplaires et fut 17 fois copiée illicitement. L'exposition est accompagnée d'un catalogue de 186 pages en couleurs qui passe en revue, de façon tout à fait inédite, les dizaines de prototypes et de réalisations de 1963 à aujourd'hui. Il cerne l'évolution du design de Pieter Stockmans entre sa collaboration chez Mosa et la réalité du Studio Pieter Stockmans, atelier personnel basé à Genk depuis 1987, où ce dernier oeuvre aux côtés de Widukind Stockmans et Frank Claesen.

For a culture careening from right to left in search of societal values, Patricia Beard offers the moral lessons learned by New Jersey politician Christine Todd Whitman during her formative years. "Family came first. Then came the farm.... Then the community: other farmers and neighbors around Oldwick.... The way my family, and many others, practiced politics grew out of this sense of interdependence," Whitman explains. Later, she invented the Republican National Committee's Listening Program, in which she interviewed poor people, radicals, and others about their political positions. Whatever success Whitman attains, rest assured these lessons are a foundation not overburdened with the excess baggage of ideological polemics. americas,biographies,history,leaders and notable people,mid atlantic,political,politics and government,politics and social sciences,regional u.s.,specific groups Biographies, HarperCollins
