Abuse Of Power (The New Nixon Tapes), Kutler, Stanley I. (Editor)
3 Abuse Of Power (The New Nixon Tapes)
Kutler, Stanley I. (Editor): The Free Press - Simon & Schuster; 1997 0684841274 / 9780684841274
First Printing Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 6.5 x 9.5 in.: 675 pages 

003708003708: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Editorial Review: "Among other things, Abuse of Power definitively answers the question of whether Nixon was directly involved in raising hush money (he was) and suggests a reason for the burglary attempt at the Watergate Hotel (financial documents that might have linked the Democratic Party chairman to Howard Hughes) . The tapes also reveal the vindictive and bigoted side to Nixon's personality, particularly as he discusses "killing" the Washington Post, and blames rich Jews for Billy Graham's tax problems. Abuse of Power only covers an additional 201 hours of tape of the near 4,000 that remain unreleased. It seems that the final chapter on Watergate has yet to be written. "

"Includes a history of the battleship class of ship, a chapter on the American Battleship Association, first-person 'sea-stories' by battleship crew members, biographical sketches of crew members, photos of members, maps, charts, other battleship veteran groups, and much more! It is interesting to note that several of our states lent their name to more than one battleship. There were two named: USS MAINE, TEXAS, INDIANA, MASSACHUSETTS, IOWA, ALABAMA, WISCONSIN, MISSOURI, NEW JERSEY, IDAHO, and MISSISSIPPI. Ironically there never was a battleship commissioned in the U.S. Navy named for the state of Montana and there was one battleship that was named for something other than a state of the union - USS KEARSARGE, named for a mountain in Merrimack County, New Hampshire. I would also like to thank the over 700 battleship veterans who submitted personal sea stories, photos and many accounts of their battleship in action."

Bragg, Rick: Alfred A Knopf Inc; New York, New York 2001 0375410627 / 9780375410628
First Edition Hard Cover Fine in Fine Dust Jacket: 6.5 x 9.5 in.: 259 pages 

002769002769: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. Editorial Review from Publishers Weekly: "Following up his bestselling memoir, All Over But the Shoutin', Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Bragg again creates a soulful, poignant portrait of working-class Southern life by looking deep into his own family history. This new volume recounts the life of his maternal grand father, Charlie Bundrum, who died in 1958, one year before Rick was born. Lacking a grandfather, the New York Times reporter sets out to build one "from dirt level, using half-forgotten sayings, half-remembered stories and a few yellowed, brittle, black-and-white photographs. "His investigations in the Appalachian foothills along the Georgia-Alabama border turn up a beloved, larger-than-life rambler who inspired backwoods legend among contemporaries, undying devotion from his wife, Ava, and unabashed love and awe from his large extended family. Big-hearted but flawed, Bundrum was a man of contradiction. Genuinely devoted to his wife and children, he was a tenuous provider (a roofer by trade, he also cooked and frequently tasted his own moonshine) who fiercely defended his clan from trouble and hardship even as he occasionally brought it on them. He lived by a code of country justice that tolerated brawling with lawmen but disdained bullying, distinguished "good, solid biblical cursing" from mere "ugly talk, " and forswore spitting in the presence of ladies. Bragg strives for an unvarnished portrait and succeeds, mostly balancing tremendous affection for his grandfather with the recognition that Bundrum, the last of his kind and a connection to a culture of backwoods self-sufficiency long dead in the South, deserves and would demand an honest rendering. "He is so much more precious smelling of hot cornbread and whiskey than milk and honey. "

On June 24, 1944, U. S. Navy warplanes patrolling the Atlantic attacked and sank a Japanese submarine, the I-52. It was an event of enormous strategic importance. The I-52's mission was to return to Japan with the ingredients of a radiological bomb. Purchased from the Germans, this doomsday weapon-classified secret by the U. S. Government for years after the war-could have contaminated vast areas of America for decades, killing millions slowly and painfully. Japan had intended to use it in an attack on the California coast until the mission was detected in an Allied intelligence coup equal to the breaking of the Enigma code. The I-52's resting place was discovered in 1995 by ship salvager Paul R. Tidwell. Author Richard N. Billings has worked with Tidwell-whose attempts to salvage the I-52's precious gold cargo continue-in bringing her secret mission to light. Finally, this is the story of how the I-52 mission may have influenced President Truman's decision to drop atomic bombs on Hiroshima and Nagasaki."

006519006519: Dustjacket now protected by a new Brodart Mylar Cover. Scarce, Out Of Print, Book. "One of the most important Civil War documents to be published since Ulysses S. Grant's Personal Memoirs. In 1994, four tattered scrapbooks were found in a Connecticut bank vault, yielding a treasure trove of more than five hundred watercolors that vividly depict America's greatest national drama. These scrapbooks -- plus a five-thousand-page illustrated memoir that was also discovered -- are the life's achievement of a long-forgotten Union private and mapmaker named Robert Knox Sneden. Sneden enlisted in the Union army after the fall of Fort Sumter. As a soldier and mapmaker, he witnessed many of the most famous battles of the war. His map of the second battle of Bull Run offers a detailed firsthand account of this pivotal moment. Captured by the notorious Captain Mosby in 1863, Sneden spent most of the rest of the war as a prisoner at the infamous Andersonville prison camp. Sneden's chronicle is one of the richest descriptions of soldier life and the only fully illustrated eyewitness account of existence inside this notorious prison. A must-have for anyone interested in the Civil War, Eye of the Storm is a story that will touch the heart of every American. "

Meet 'Dutch Kate' Wilson, who pioneered many areas long before the 'respectable' women who received credit for getting there first ... ruthless heartbreakers Cad Wilson and Rose Blumkin ... 'French' Marie Larose, who auctioned herself off as a wife to the highest bidder ... Georgia Lee, who invested her earnings wisely and became one of the richest women in the North ... and Edith Neile, called 'the Oregon Mare,' famous for both her outlandish behavior and her softhearted generosity."
