American Slavery As It Was The Background Of Twelve Years A Slave

With the recent success of the movie and book "Twelve Years A Slave" in mind, this title, as the name imports, gives a true picture of the state of slavery in the United States in the first half of the 19th century. It had an important bearing on the great controversy upon this subject at the time it was published. The evidence which it contains is minutely circumstantial. A considerable portion of the book consists of the narratives of persons who have resided at the south, and witnessed the treatment of the slaves on the plantation with which they were conversant. With very few exceptions the name of the witness is given, and in the cases in which circumstances make it unsafe that he should be known, his character for integrity is vouched for by some responsible person. In some instances also, but those very few, the witness relates what was told him by persons on whose veracity he could rely. But the great mass of the evidence is original and from known and named witnesses. Please be advised that this book contains very explicit and detailed narratives that tell of torture, pain and cruelty.

Born in Dublin and classically educated at Trinity College, James Henry (1798-1876) practised as a doctor for more than twenty years before an inheritance allowed him to focus on the close study of Virgil's Aeneid. Travelling extensively across Europe, Henry conferred with eminent scholars and consulted numerous manuscripts. After the death of his wife in 1849, he was accompanied and ably assisted in his quest by his sole surviving daughter, Katherine Olivia (1830-72). In 1853 he published in Dresden his textual analysis of the poem's first six books. Reissued here is the version that appeared in Britain in 1859. This painstaking research was in turn incorporated into Henry's monumental multi-volume commentary, Aeneidea, published between 1873 and 1892 and now also reissued in the Cambridge Library Collection. The present work throws much light on both the ancient text and the approach of an idiosyncratic and indefatigable Virgilian scholar.

This timely book investigates the experiences of employees at all levels of Boeing Commercial Airplanes (BCA) during a ten-year period of dramatic organizational change. As Boeing transformed itself, workers and managers contended with repeated downsizing, shifting corporate culture, new roles for women, outsourcing, mergers, lean production, and rampant technological change. Drawing on a unique blend of quantitative and qualitative research, the authors consider how management strategies affected the well-being of Boeing employees, as well as their attitudes toward their jobs and their company. Boeing employees’ experience holds vital lessons for other employees, the leaders of other firms determined to thrive in today’s era of inescapable and growing global competition, as well as public officials concerned about the well-being of American workers and companies.

Turbulence at 67 Inches is a life story and a rant in one. The book follows the life of acclaimed poet Howard Camner. The writing is at once brutally honest, very funny, at times heartbreaking, and often inspiring. The journey begins during the Bicentennial. It is America’s 200th birthday. Camner has just been awarded the title of “Most Artistic Body of 1976” in a body painting contest. But at the moment he is sitting in the shallow end of the Atlantic Ocean about to run naked through a very crowded beach. He is not doing it for fun. He is doing it because he has no choice. Seconds after his run begins, several angry men are giving chase in an attempt to kill him. So sets the stage for a life that becomes one wild problem after another. There are encounters with the most bizarre characters this planet has to offer, including a talking dog, a guy who claims that he and his invisible companion are on the lam from a police force from another planet, a woman who fries up Manhattan sewer rats for dinner, and the Devil himself; just to name some of the saner ones. After the streaking episode, which turned into a run for his life, the book hurls us back to the early 1960s where as a young boy the author is trying to figure out who he is. Finding himself in direct competition with the next door neighbor’s talking dog, the boy transforms himself into several memorable characters, including a werewolf, a superhero, a mad scientist, a fake musician, and a secret agent. All of these lead to disastrous moments. Still he plods along, convinced that he is destined for...something. 17 proves to be a difficult and pivotal year with the loss of his grandfather who taught him wisdom the hard way and that one should always wear socks when kissing a girl. Devastated by the loss, the author threatens to use martial arts that he doesn’t know how to use on a future homicidal drug kingpin, becomes a criminal himself, gets repeatedly attacked by a man running for public office, and loses his virginity to an outfielder’s mitt. Needing an outlet other than sex with baseball gloves, he finds that he has a knack for poetry. In 1979 at the age of 22 he heads for New York City to take his place in the literary world. Somehow it clicks and he finds his voice as the headliner with the West End Poetry Troupe. New York provides several narrow escapes, a taste of fame, collisions with a vast array of human oddities, and an on-stage confrontation with a waiter that left the waiter possibly dead and our hero in hiding. This led to a breakdown and a three month period of seclusion with no human contact whatsoever. Snatched from death by his father, he returns to Miami for a brief stint as a beach bum and falls for a Midwestern girl. Following her to Chicago, his life is threatened by her father, so he returns to Miami and meets another girl who makes his life a nightmare because he bought her a Nutty Buddy ice-cream cone instead of the cherry Popsicle she wanted. Narrowly escaping being murdered by a transvestite hooker, he heads for Los Angeles to be rich and famous. His screenplay “Duck, Duck, Goose” creates havoc in Hollywood causing an affair between two Hollywood producers and the break up of a prominent management team. Distraught over the mess his screenplay has caused he turns to acting, falling under the protection of Hell’s Angels on one film and ruining a $30,000 scene in another. He befriends the Mayor of Munchkinland, takes up with a psychotic bitch in Beverly Hills, and risks his life to save the lives of some hummingbirds. Feeling confident after rescuing the hummingbirds, he creates and hosts the worst talk show in the history of television where he interviews Death among other offbeat celebrities, and soon embarks on a mission to seek out celebrity ghosts. Avoiding fame and fortune like no one else has, Camner exits Los Angeles and returns to Florida where he almost gets murdered in a swamp. After a confrontation with a large trigger-happy c

Stockbroker Isabelle Rhodes has a lot of money, a lot of trust issues, and a whole lot of reasons to believe her ex-girlfriend was right when she said that Isabelle sucked at relationships. With that accusation stuck in her head, Isabelle throws caution to the wind and dives into her first one-night stand. Checking that off her bucket list should be something to celebrate—except it turns out that the woman she just spent an earth-shattering night with is actually her newly hired company pilot, Audrey Graham. Ms. Never-See-You-Again just turned into Ms. See-You-Constantly. Concerned about the stigma of workplace dalliances, Isabelle vows it can’t go further than the one night. Good plan—if not for an insistent libido and an even more persistent Audrey who conspires to break Isabelle’s resolve. Soon their no strings arrangement starts to feel a lot like dating, and Isabelle finds herself wanting more than just casual nights together…

Turbulence is the lIDst natural nDde of fluid lIDtion, and has been the subject of scientific study for all Dst a century. During this period, various ideas and techniques have evolved to nDdel turbulence. Following Saffman, these theoretical approaches can be broadly divided into four overlapping categories -- (1) analytical lIDdelling, (2) physical lIDdelling, (3) phenomenologicalllDdelling, and (4) nurerical lIDdelling. With the purpose of stmtnarizing our =ent understanding of these theoretical approaches to turbulence, recognized leaders (fluid dynamicists, mathematicians and physicists) in the field were invited to participate in a formal workshop during October 10-12, 1984, sponsored by The Institute for CooIputer Applications in Science and Engineering and NASA Langley Research Center. Kraiciman, McCcxnb, Pouquet and Spiegel represented the category of analytical nDdelling, while Landahl and Saffman represented physical lIDdelling. The contributions of Latmder and Spalding were in the category of phenanenological lIDdelling, and those of Ferziger and Reynolds in the area of nurericalllDdelling. Aref, Cholet, Lumley, Moin, Pope and Temam served on the panel discussions. With the care and cooperation of the participants, the workshop achieved its purpose, and we believe that its proceedings published in this vol\. llre has lasting scientific value. The tone of the workshop was set by two introductory talks by Bushnell and ChaImm. Buslmell presented the engineering viewpoint while Chapman reviewed from a historical perspective developments in the study of turbulence. The remaining talks dealt with specific aspects of the theoretical approaches to fluid turbulence.

'It is difficult to summarize in a short space the extreme richness of this book, which involves arguments taken from physics, philosophy, history of science and epistemology, as well as economic thought and recent developments in econometrics. . . . Louçã's book makes for extremely interesting and useful reading: it provides a solid criticism of the foundations of neoclassical theory and constitutes the unavoidable starting point for any theoretical construction aiming to understand real societies. . . . The vast erudition of the author - who moves easily in many fields of the social and natural sciences - makes the book a mine of information and a valuable source of new ideas.' - Angelo Reati, Review of Political Economy 'This book will be a landmark in the history of economic thought. It is an extremely powerful and original critique of mainstream econometrics, based on a thorough knowledge of its historical origins and its contemporary applications. It will be essential reading for everyone involved in teaching or learning economic theory and model-building. The book also provides new insights into the work of Frisch, Keynes and Schumpeter . . . it is also a very important contribution to philosophy in the social sciences and in particular, to the development of evolutionary theory in economics. The rapid recent growth of interest in evolutionary theory means that the book will be of special interest to those concerned with these exciting new developments.' - Christopher Freeman, SPRU - Science and Technology Policy Research, University of Sussex, UK and Maastricht University, The Netherlands

Eric Wilson reveals a neglected yet powerful current in several major Romantic figures: the affirmation of - not escape from - turbulence. Romantic Turbulence unearths the chaotic undercurrents of European Romanticism found in Goethe s science and Schelling s philosophy, and demonstrates how these tendencies agitate the texts of Emerson, Fuller, Melville, Thoreau, and Whitman. These writers see the universe not as a reflection of transcendent harmony or a system of predictable laws but rather as a convergence of chaos and order, a polarized field. Detailing this undulatory cosmos, Wilson shows how these American Romantics participate in its unsettling rhythms by practicing an ecological poetics, translating the energies of their habitat into living compositions.
