Rugged expeditions into Wyoming, Montana and South Dakota to seek the wild mustang, combined with their enormous sensitivity to the land and its animals, have resulted in the powerful, moving images that make an unforgettable statement in Mustang."

'If there was ever a hell on earth,' one Confederate veteran remembered, 'Elmira prison was that hell.' New York's POW camp - nicknamed 'Helmira' - was the most infamous of Northern prisons during the Civil War, places where hunger, brutality, and disease were everyday hazards. 'So Far From Dixie' is the gripping narrative history of five men who were sent to Elmira and survived to document their stories."

1970 Edition: Second Printing Soft Cover Very Good: 5.5 x 8.25 in.: 381 pages 

006510006510: Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "One charlatan opens an account with a broker, gives a few orders for purchase and sale, and, if the market turns against him, brings suit on the ground that a selling order has been erroneously executing as a buying order or vice versa.... A few on the outer fringe of finance make a living out of this racket. One notorious swindler had successive suits against many brokerage houses. They were brought by different attorneys, some in his own name and some in the names of relatives... -from "Broker and Customer in Court". The stock market crash of 1929 and the subsequent Great Depression did not occur in a vacuum: their roots lie in economic events that occurred over the previous ten years. This book performs a financial autopsy on the "speculative decade" from 1919 to 1929, exploring the ruinous aftermath of World War I-in which war debts were contested and battles over reparations set the stage for a difficult international monetary situation-as well as the natural waxing and waning of economic cycles and the processes and procedures of stock exchanges that contributed to disaster. Written by a lawyer and emphasizing a legal perspective on the workings of a complex economy, this classic work of high finance offers a unique panorama on an important era of American history that is often overlooked.

It was a major development in American economic policy, and a prominent part of the deregulation movement of the late 1970s. This study reveals the internal decision-making process at AT&T and explains how private and public interests combined to shape corporate and public policy in late 20th-century America. Temin weaves the strands of politics, economics, business, and law into an accessible narrative history that will be of interest to the general reader who wants to know about government business interaction and how it affects American citizens. Temin portrays divestiture as a great experiment in public policy, competition, openness, and international policy. He concludes that the experiment has been a mix of deliberate design and uncontrollable forces whose outcome was not foreseen. "
