Into America's Dream-Dump: A Postmodern Study

This fascinating study explores the Hollywood novel as a culmination of the American Dream and a symbol of its betrayal. Born of promise and hope yet focused on immediate gratification and profit, Hollywood mirrors the contradictions inherent in the myth of the American Dream. The history of the development of the Hollywood novel reflects the deterioration of the American Dream during the 20th century as it has passed from utopian promise through decadence to nightmare and apocalypse.

Saxon Math 2 Homeschool: Complete Kit 1st Edition
Saxon Math 2 Homeschool: Complete Kit 1st Edition

Saxon math programs produce confident students who are not only able to correctly compute, but also to apply concepts to new situations. These materials gently develop concepts, and the practice of those concepts is extended over a considerable period of time. This is called incremental development and continual review. Material is introduced in easily understandable pieces (increments), allowing students to grasp one facet of a concept before the next one is introduced. Both facets are then practiced together until another one is introduced. This feature is combined with continual review in every lesson throughout the year.

Spying without spies: origins of america's secret
Spying without spies: origins of america's secret

This book provides the first documented description of the genesis and institutionalization of America's nuclear surveillance system. It traces the development of covert technical methods for assessing the nuclear capability of foreign powers from the introduction of these techniques in World War II to 1949, when they were successfully employed to detect the test of Russia's first atomic bomb. Ziegler and Jacobson examine the planning for the system as well as the technical and organizational obstacles that had to be overcome before it could be implemented. They describe the government decision-making processes and the ways individuals and groups with different beliefs and interests were mobilized in support of the program. They also explore the relationships between the intelligence and scientific communities that were forged in this process.

Shipping Interdiction And The Law Of The Sea
Shipping Interdiction And The Law Of The Sea

In this comparative study of shipping interdiction, Douglas Guilfoyle considers the State action of stopping, searching and arresting foreign flag vessels and crew on the high seas in cases such as piracy, slavery, drug smuggling, fisheries management, migrant smuggling, the proliferation of weapons of mass destruction and maritime terrorism. Interdiction raises important questions of jurisdiction, including: how permission to board a foreign vessel is obtained; whether boarding State or flag State law applies during the interdiction (or whether both apply); and which State has jurisdiction to prosecute any crimes discovered. Rules on the use of force and protection of human rights, compensation for wrongful interdiction and the status of boarding State officers under flag State law are also examined. A unified and practical view is taken of the law applicable across existing interdiction regimes based on an extensive survey of state practice.
