Washington, DC, U.S.A. Brookings Institution Press 1985 0815756232 Paperback As New No Jacket Jacket Signed
In 1979, after a decade of enormous increases in the price of oil, U.S. influence in the oil-rich Persian Gulf region declined sharply. Early in the year the Iranian revolution replaced the shah, the principal pro-American leader in the region, with rulers hostile to the United States and to its remaining freinds around the Gulf. In December Soviet troops moved into Afgahistan, bringing the Soviets closer to the Gulf and the Indian Ocean. In the United States these events spurre the announcement of the Carter Doctrine and creation of a new military command to handle Gulf. Crises. Yet the United States established no new fighting forces, and U.S. friends around the Gulf proved less willing than the shah of Iran to host U.S. military presence. THus debate has continued about whether and how th United States can secure important interests int eh Gulf region. Signed and inscribe by authoron title page.Signed by Author. Trade Paperback.

Price in pound sterling crossed out in pencil and the date 1973 printed next to it on inside of dust jacket. No other marks. Martial, the father of the epigram and perhaps its greatest exponent, was one of the brilliant Spaniards who made their literary mark in first-century Rome. Poor but averse to regular work, he survived by hi swits - by dancing attendance on wealthy patrons, and writing poetry. His epigrams embraced a faxcinating range of moods - scabrous, affectionate, flattering, cruel, ingenious, elegiac, playful. And his targets were spongers, fortune- hunters, schoolmasters, jockeys, slaves, prostitutes, doctors, prudes, perverts, philosophers, poets, and above all the rech, who are always with us. What he caustically evokes is not 'the grandeur that was Rome', but the squalor and vivacity of a great European city." All orders processed within 24 hoursHard Cover.

"It is no overstatement when we hail Arthur Darby Nock as the scholar of our generation who was best equipped to picture 'Early Gentile Christianity.' In his studies here presented to a wider public one finds that rare phenomenon: a text where each sentence appears clear and simple, but where the specialist sees that this simplicity is born out of a painstaking analysis of the original sources and a breadth of knowledge almost beyond human comprehension. In a time when the Jewish background is more in focus than is the Gentile, Nock's studies are the more significant. With his death they take on the added weight of a challenging testament."Soft Cover. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Dustjacket protected by archival quality mylar cover. 190 clean, bright pages. "Dr. Oakley's subject is conciliarism. He dissects with dispassionate inclusiveness the events surrounding and following the Council of Constance, and he supports the dogmatic validity of its 1415 claim of the supremacy of conciliar authority. He further argues that Constance's teaching is incompatible with the decrees of Vatican I on papal primacy and inerrancy. Together these facts indicate to him that the future health of the institutional Church depends on her officially recognizing the secondary nature of Church structure as well as the relative quality of doctrinal formulations, and the provisional nature of ecclesiologies."

By Mesmer's followers, even in his lifetime, it was weighed and found wanting."Cloth. Very Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

261 Robert L. Long Valor in a Border State- Confederate Soldiers of St. Mary's County, Maryland
2012 1463579772 First Edition Paperback New SIGNED BY AUTHOR
Valor in a Border State is a 10 year compilation of biographies, amazing stories, photos and maybe even a little folklore of the brave soldiers of St. Mary's County, Maryland who gave up everything to cast thier lot with the newly formed Confederate States of America. In 1860, unimaginable choices had to be made by our great grandfathers. The choice of state vs. country, North vs. South, to enlist or to remain neutral, ideals vs. beliefs. One could only guess at the choices we would have made had we been living in St. Mary’s County, Maryland during the Civil War. This book brings to life some of the men of St. Mary’s, their stories, their struggles and their lives. The shaping of a new nation or the reshaping of an old one squarely rested upon their shoulders. About the author: Rob Long was born in Leonardtown, Maryland in 1969. He now resides in Lusby, Maryland with his wife Karrie and their three children Emily, Madison and Shayne. He has worked as a mechanic and mechanical planner at Calvert Cliffs Nuclear Power Plant for 22 years. Robert enjoys being a husband, father, Civil War re-enactor, local historian, Lt. Commander of the Captain Vincent Camalier Camp 1359 Sons of Confederate Veterans, author and Master Mason.

266 Rolling Stones, Jools Holland, Dora Loewenstein Rolling Stones: A Life on the Road
Studio 1998 0670880515 FIRST hardcover brand new in shrink wrap 
This is the Rolling Stones' official story of life on the road, their home away from home for over thirty years, created with the exclusive cooperation of the band, their management, and a select few of their closest colleagues. The Rolling Stones--Mick, Keith, Charlie, Ron, Bill--tell their story in an incredibly candid first-person account which is complemented by hundreds of rare photographs. For this major project, the Stones looked to Dora Loewenstein, the daughter of their business manager, Prince Rupert Loewenstein. Having virtually grown up with them, she enjoys their confidence and support and has been entrusted to present their touring history, from its beginning in 196263 at small, local gigs, to their infamous world tours, culminating with their 199798 Bridges to Babylon tour. In a vivid text, based on extensive interviews conducted by Jools Holland, the Stones reminisce and comment on their experiences, the music, and the relationships which give the band its unique and enduring personality. The Stones' sidemen, such as sax player Bobby Keys, and long-term associates also add their stories to the mix. The dazzling array of photographs are drawn from the Stones' own archives and from untapped collections throughout the world. The Rolling Stones: A Life on the Road is the story, quite simply, of the greatest rock-and-roll band in the world doing what they do best.

Paradoxically, he frequently points out in his works that words must be used with meaning given them by people in general or 'ordinary sociallife'; if used with another meaning, the author whould define the maining. In Theological Language he is concerned with the language used to express conscepts that are not readily tied to sense an generally beyound the evidence of sense. His plan for the work was never completed, and this booklet contains only the first of two parts, in which he discusses the principles to be followed by a Catholic author when expressing himself but, as he points out, the principles apply to all authors..."Soft Cover.

The believer's security in Christ is not unconditional, and the warning passages must be frankly accepted rather than "interpreted" into toal irrelevance or circumvented by theological hypothesis..."Signed by Author.

He does so in an unconventionally personal voice and manner that he hopes will close to some extent what he regards as an uncomfortable gap between conventional modes of discourse about literature itself, a gap he finds 'not only uncomfortable but indecent' when the subject is suffering and sympathy."Hard Cover.

287 Slung, Michele B. (editor) Slow Hand : Women Writing Erotica
New York, NY, U.S.A. HarperTrade 1992 0060165987 First Edition Hardcover Fine Fine Jacket 
A great gift for mother's Day! Great book. Solid, like new. 228 pp. From Publishers Weekly Stories about sex can have many goals, but erotica's prime raison d'etre is always to provoke "strong skin responses," in Slung's ( I Shudder at Your Touch ) apt phrase. This collection of 19 stories by and for women offers enough variety to stimulate virtually any taste. Each with a brief editor's foreword and author's note, the entries explore many nuances of sexuality, more than a few positions and some of the most daunting sexual issues there are. Represented are bisexuality, voyeurism, the line between violence and desired force ("to be made to do what I wanted to do," observes the woman narrating Lisa Tuttle's "The Story of No"), sex for love and sex for sex. The stories place context on a par with action, a different recipe than that of most erotica directed toward men. As reading experiences, some tales fare better than others. Carole Maso's "The American Woman in the Chinese Hat" attempts "an homage to . . . Robbe-Grillet, and the French Nouveau roman," while such stories as "Oh, Brother," by Bea Wilder, seem only recollections of sexual memories. Many readers will welcome the realism that informs most of these tales: protagonists who are aging, afraid, confused or aggressive, and who admit their failings as readily as they proclaim their desires.Hard Cover.
