Very Good/Good. The Vantage Point by Lyndon Johnson is an in-depth look at the Johnson Administration. The book focuses on a wide variety of accomplishments and events, both domestic and foreign, which shaped the Presidency of Lyndon Johnson. The reader learns of the struggles that the conflict in Vietnam presented Johnson with, and begins to develop an accute understanding for the actions he took. In addition to the war in Vietnam, Johnson tells of the War on Poverty here in the United States. It becomes quite apparent that President Johnson was not a crooked politician, but a man of action who had the well-being of his fellow man at heart. Although some of the reading tends to be a little "dry," the author manages to instill a sense of respect, in his readers, for all he has done for America. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. <br/><br/> <br/><br/>, Holt, Rinehart, 1971, x+319 pages with index.

Conventional wisdom claims that the seventeenth century gave birth to the material and ideological forces that culminated in the Industrial Revolution and the rise of capitalism. Not true, according to Neal Wood, who argues that much earlier reformersDudley, Starkey, Brinklow, Latimer, Crowley, Becon, Lever, and Thomas Smith, as well as the better-known More and Fortescuelaid the groundwork by fashioning an economic conception of the state in response to social, economic and political conditions of England. Wood's innovative study of these early Tudor thinkers, who upheld the status quo yet condemned widespread poverty and suffering, will interest historians, political scientists, and social and political theorists.

Daughter of a count who is a cousin of Tsar Nicholas, Zoya enjoys a privileged, cloistered existence. Zoya, whose name means "life," is on intimate terms with the tsar's family. All of them, of course, are endangered by the Revolution. The insurgents slaughter the tsar and his kin, and cause the deaths of Zoya's parents and brother, forcing her to flee to Paris with her aged but indomitable grandmother. Suffering in unaccustomed poverty, they are sustained by Zoya's wages as a dancer with the Ballet Russe. Romance brightens her life following a chance encounter with an affluent New Yorker, Capt. Clayton Andrews. Enchanted by Zoya, Andrews eventually brings her to Manhattan as his bride, never imagining the tragedies that will befall them both. Steel evokes the final days of Imperial Russia with characteristic bravura. As always, she offers a carefully calculated mix of picturesque locales, remarkable events and appealing characters. ., Delacorte Press, 1988, xi+284 pages facsimiles and music scores.

Jacob August Riis was a Danish-American social reformer, "muckraking" journalist and social documentary photographer. He is known for using his photographic and journalistic talents to help the impoverished in New York City; those impoverished New Yorkers were the subject of most of his prolific writings and photography. He endorsed the implementation of "model tenements" in New York with the help of humanitarian Lawrence Veiller. Additionally, as one of the most famous proponents of the newly practicable casual photography, he is considered one of the fathers of photography due to his very early adoption of flash in photography. While living in New York, Riis experienced poverty and became a police reporter writing about the quality of life in the slums. He attempted to alleviate the bad living conditions of poor people by exposing their living conditions to the middle and upper classes.

When Helen Gloag storms out of her father’s cottage and heads for the coast , her plan is simple: an escape from Scotland, a pleasant sea voyage, a new start in the American Colonies. Yet what begins as an adolescent rebellion quickly turns into the stuff of nightmares. The grueling poverty and despe ration Helen had hoped to escape by leaving home is magnified ten-fold in t he hold of the ship, where illness and starvation run rampant. Then one day , Helen makes a startling and useful discovery about the gross stratificati on of society: while she and the other passengers wrestle for scraps in the squalid pestilence of the ship’s belly, the captain’s silk-clad guests enj oy claret and crumpets above-deck. The germ of a resolution takes hold in H elen’s mind. She will do whatever it takes to become a proper lady, with go rgeous clothes and sumptuous food, soft hands and idle days. Helen has no i dea just how soon her wish will come true—and what a bizarre and devastatin g price she will pay for it., Penguin Books Ltd, 2004, Boston: Houghton Mifflin, 1990. Cloth.

In this book he speaks to and for the spiritual lives of children, whether Christian, Jewis or Islamic. From their words and pictures he evokes their views of salvation, righteousness, God, and their ways of understanding the meaning of their lives, both in their own terms and in the way the adult world prescribes. xix, 358 pages with Notes and Index.

Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Jonathan Freedman offers the first comprehensive view of poverty in a generation, showing beyond doubt that the poor are no longer confined to some Other America or so called 'underclass'. Freedman spent three years investigating and recording conversations with people of all ages, visiting prenatal clinics, schools, job-training centers, nursing homes, asking. "what helps? what works? what hurts? " Their responses give a human face to poverty--children struggling to grow up, families fighting to keep their homes, displaced workers seeking training, retirees struggling to age and die with dignity. And Freedman discovered a heartening number of individuals and organizations already working to eliminate suffering. He also shows how innovative programs on a shoestring budget can help seemingly hopeless people cope with their lives and sometimes transform them. 245 pages with index. 6.4 x 9.6 inches.

With Britain's coast under mounting pressure from pollution and development, this book serves as a reminder of what we stand to lose. It is based on the same formula as Brian Martin's "Tales of the Old Countrymen" and "Tales of the Old Gamekeepers". This time he has visited all corners of Britain's coastline to track down a variety of old coastal characters, and uses their own words, wherever possible, to describe their personal trials and triumphs, from days of deep poverty and disaster to deeds of heroism. These men, all united in their love of the coast, have worked in diverse occupations from lighthouse-keeper, coastguard and lifeboatman to fisherman, pony-back postman and cliff-climbing egg collector. Despite the rigours of their existence, literally battling against storm and tempest, they have also enjoyed many moments of tranquillity, at the same time making remarkable observations of wildlife. ., David & Charles, 1994, Scribner.

The extraordinary biography of two of the world's greatest athletes - Jesse Owens and Joe Louis. Jesse Owens and Joe Louis have been hailed as American icons for the last sixty-five years, yet they were unfailingly human in everything they achieved and endured: as vulnerable as they were courageous; as troubled as they were brilliant; as restless in themselves as they are now rooted in history. IN BLACK AND WHITE will tell, for the first time, the story of the shared political legacy, extraordinary personal links and enduring friendship between 4-times Olympic gold medallist Jesse Owens, and Heavyweight World Boxing Champion Joe Louis, black athletes born in an America demeaned by racism and poverty. Award-winning sports journalist Donald McRae explores these two most revered of sportsmen whose finest achievements cannot be diminished by their later tragedies; their little-known stretches of debt, despair, drug-addiction and mental illness as they struggled to find a life beyond the track and the ring. It is a deeply personal story of two of the greatest athletes the world has ever known. ., Scribner, 2002, Hutchinson, 1111. Hardcover. Acceptable. 378 pages. No dust jacket.

Mired in poverty, poorly educated, underemployed, and without a tribal government, they also faced the possibility that the U.S. Congress would terminate services to them. Fortunately, loss of reservation lands was averted and the situation began to improve. When the federal government approved a charter and constitution for the tribe in 1957, it marked both the official resumption of tribal sovereignty after more than a century and the first agreement that did not force removal of the Seminoles from the reservation. "An Assumption of Sovereignty" continues Harry A. Kersey Jr.'s examination of Seminole history. He studies the effects of shifting governmental attitudes and policies on the Florida Indians during the past quarter-century. He also charts the social, economic, and political experiences of the tribe during these volatile decades. By the end of the account, readers understand that the Seminole tribe has become organized, functioning, and sovereign, with a stable economic base. The author has made extensive use of oral history from tribal elders as well as the memoirs and records of Florida congressional leaders. Harry A. Kersey Jr. is a professor of history at Florida Atlantic University. He is the author of "The Florida Seminole and the New Deal", "The Seminole and Miccosukee Tribes: A Critical Bibliography", and "Pelts, Plumes, and Hides: White Traders among the Seminole Indians, 1870-1930"., -University of Nebrska Press (1996)-, New York: Harry N.

A vivid recreation of the post-Utopian England of the early 18th century, a world where women are denied knowledge and education and doomed to motherhood only. The main character is the elderly widowed daughter of John Milton. Her story describes a world where a great thinker can be praised for his views on liberty while subjecting his daughter to a life of poverty and hardship. In her old age she is full of both forgiveness and a ravenous hunger for learning. This is a woman's version of literary history.

Synopsis:- Ranging from the 1880s up to the years after World War II, Hardacre is the story of the rise of a great family and of England herself during the most dramatic years of change and fortune in her long history. Sam Hardacre began his rise to wealth and power on the grim quays of Englands fishing ports working as a herring gutter. Toiling in this crowded, fetid atmosphere each day from dawn until dusk, Sam by his efforts provided his family with a life of grinding, honest poverty-the only luxuries being an occasional jug of ale for him and his wife, Mary, and a tin of fresh milk for his two young sons. This cycle of misery continued without relief year in and year out until a chance meeting at a racecourse ignites a flash of Sam`s latent business acumen, showing him the way to prosperity-eventually to wealth and the stewardship of a great commercial empire. And so the Hardacres begin their climb up England`s economic and social ladder. Their frequent and stormy encounters with the "closed" world of the English aristocracy in the last glow of its golden age highlight the trappings and mores of a society sliding toward the disasters of the Great War. The hangover from the Victorian age of the arrogance and uncertainty of the nouveau riche stands in sharp contrast to Sam and Mary`s unfailing humanity and compassion. Although they do acquire all of the outward signs of success and hard-won acceptance, they never forget their own roots or lose their keen sensitivity to the daily hardships of life for working people in England. -> this Paperback book was published by Grafton Books in 1983 it has 509 pages we have grade it as Good and Creases In Front or Back Covers and possible some pages also Has Inscription writing or name it will be shipped from our UK warehouse shipping is Free for UK buyers and at a reasonable charge for buyer outside the UK, Grafton Books, Simon And Schuster, 1977.

CANNIBALISM is unquestionably one of humanity's oldest and most deep-seated taboos. Even in an age of indulgence and permissiveness where almost nothing is deemed sacred, prohibitions surround this topic. Yet like so many horrors in life, it holds a fascination. Eat Thy Neighbour is a lively and informative account of cannibalism and cannibals from the earliest known incidents to the present day. It puts the unsavoury subject firmly in its social and historical perspective. Human flesh may be eaten simply because famine, poverty, disease or war has left no other viable option. Or it may be an act imbued with religious or magical significance. In some tribal societies it was seen as a way of assimilating the courage and strength of enemies; in others, as a means to preserve the wisdom and humour of friends. Alternatively cannibalism may be the ultimate expression of power as conceived in the mind of a pycho-sexual predator or sociopathic serial killer. Daniel Diehl and Mark P. Donnelly delve into the significance of devouring human flesh and the cultural and anthropological background to cannibalism, as well as looking at individuals who became infamous for their dietary proclivities. From the semi-legendary figure of Sawney Beane in Scotland to Mrs Lovett (Sweeney Todd's partner in crime) and her meat pies; from Ed Gein, whose appalling acts inspired Hitchcock's Psycho and the Texas Chainsaw Massacre, to the most notorious recent case - that of Armin Meiwes, who procured a willing victim on the internet - this is a compelling book. While certainly not recommended for the squeamish, Eat Thy Neighbour provides some insights into those dark recesses of a few troubled minds which continue to transcend society's strictest taboo. This book is guaranteed to satisfy the hunger of any reader with an appetite for the darker side of human nature. ., Sutton Pub Ltd, 2006, Wordsworth Editions, UK, 1993. First Edition. Softcover. Very Good Condition. Available Now. Book Description: Mary Lennox was horrid. Selfish and spoilt, she was sent to stay with her hunchback uncle in Yorkshire. She hated it. But when she finds the way into a secret garden and begins to tend it, a change comes over her and her life. : She meets and befriends a local boy, the talented Dickon, and comes across her sickly cousin Colin who had been kept hidden from her. Between them, the three children work astonishing magic in themselves and those around them. : The Secret Garden is one of the best-loved stories of all time. : Review: "It is only the exceptional author who can write a book about children with sufficient skill, charm, simplicity, and significance to make it acceptable to both young and old. Mrs. Burnett is one of the few thus gifted."--"The New York Times" --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. : About the Author: Frances Hodgson Burnett lived from 1849 to 1924. She was born in Manchester and lived in great poverty after the death of her father in 1853. She escaped the horror of her surroundings by writing stories and often returned to a rags-to-riches or a riches-to-rags theme. In 1865 her family accepted a relative's invitation to emigrate to America. They were still poor but the wide open spaces of Tennesssee were better than the slums of Manchester. Frances had to earn money so began writing short pieces for American magazines. In 1873 she married Dr Swan Burnett, and it was under her married name that she became a world-famous children's writer.Frances Hodgson Burnett wrote over forty books; the two that are best-known today are The Secret Garden and Little Lord Fauntleroy. In later life she became rather eccentric, turned to spiritualism and mystic cults and took to wearing frilly clothes and titian-coloured wigs - this earned her the nickname 'Fluffy'. --This text refers to the Hardcover edition.

From Booklist: "In seventeenth-century Korea, a 12-year-old girl becomes aware of the complexities of class and gender differences in this historically enlightening story.

But curiosity leads Jade to secretly leave the Inner Court, a brief but eye-opening adventure that reveals heart-wrenching poverty, unexpected beauty, and the knowledge that her home's high walls offer both shelter and imprisonment. However, Jade discovers that creativity and imagination are powerful tools that can provide comfort and internal freedom. In descriptive, engaging prose, the story portrays the culture, traditions, and daily lives of the Korean aristocracy in a time of political and cultural change.

Seesaw Girl - Paperback

2008, ISBN: 9780395915141

Hardcover, ID: 481684862

Basic Books, 2008. "The U.S.S. Scorpion SSN 589, a 99-man fast attack submarine, sank 400 miles southwest of the Azores on May 22, 1968, a time during the Cold War when the Soviet Navy was expanding and becoming more aggressive. The Navy's top secret court of inquiry, however, theorized that the Scorpion was sunk by its own hot-running torpedo, not an enemy vessel. In this thorough post-mortem, military beat reporter Offley challenges the Navy's official report-including details like when the wreckage was found and what the sub's mission had been-with a succinct charge: "It was all a lie." Offley believes the Scorpion was sunk by the Soviets, in retaliation for the loss of one of their subs two months prior. Using the U.S.S. Pueblo incident of January, 1968, in which key cryptography gear was lost, Offley connects the dots between the Navy, the John Walker spy ring, and Soviet intelligence to conclude that the Russians had access to all of the Navy's most secret communications, allowing them to ambush the Scorpion. Most of Offley's argument, while compelling, is based solely on interviews with former Navy personnel, and a lack of factual evidence weakens it." Size: 7.8 x 5.3 x 1.4 inches. First Printing. Soft Cover. New/No Jacket., Basic Books, 2008, Arlington, Virginia, U.S.A.: American Anthropological Association, 1948. 93 Pages. Includes a large 18" X 24" map foldout map in very good condition. Back cover is taped on and holding well. There is cover edge wear and spine is worn both at the foot and the head. A few interior pages show minor edge wear but otherwise are free of marks and clean. This is No. 70 of the Titles in the Memoir Series of the association. The sector of Pueblo culture which forms the basis of this paper is the civil organization of the village. This study of present-day conditions shows that the main force within the Pueblo villages which molded the civil organization was their economy; the outside force was the impact of the Spanish and Anglo-American cultures on the Indian and his institutions. Land being the basis of Pueblo economy, to understand the Indian's relation to his soil is vital. The years of contention over boundaries, titles to grants, and legislation influence the Indian's habit of thought as well as his laws. Land in the eyes of the Indian is his most precious possession. He had to protect his resources from the Spanish, the Mexican, and the Anglo-Amerian in turn. He had to learn the language as well as the customs of the rulers of the country. Experience must have demonstrated to the Indian over and over again that being drawn into court, or getting into a controversy, or signing a paper usually resulted in his losing some of his precious resources. To protect himself from the invaders the Indian adopted the only method he knew how to use-that was, his own version of the iron curtain. This attitude of secretiveness characterizes the Pueblos even today. The native religion has lost its hold on the people in those villages which have adopted modern methods of cultivation and management of land. The philosophy that man is the complete master of nature which so often goes with the first flush of scientific advancement has been no small factor in discrediting the old beliefs. . First Edition.
