2 Arctic Journal MOLLOY, Arthur E. MULLER, Fritz ARMSTRONG, Terence Arctic: Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume 15, No. 2,June 1962
Arctic Institute of North America, Montreal , 1962, 
(Arctic). Arctic : Journal of the Arctic Institute of North America. Volume15, No. 2, June 1962. Montreal : Arctic Institute of North America, 1962. Pp [85]-171,(1). Illustrated. Maps. 8vo, illustrated green stapled wrappers. Includes: Arthur E. Molloy's "Arctic Science and the Nuclear Submarine" (pp 86-91) - "The entire Arctic Ocean has now ceased to be remote and is open to study on a year-round basis by nuclear submarines (Strong 1961). Admittedly, there are limitations to the use of a nuclear submarine for arctic research, but the advantages heavily out-weigh the disadvantages. First among the advantages to be gained through the use of this type of vehicle is mobility (Lyon and Boyle 1962). The nuclear submarine is a self-contained community capable of operating under all arctic conditions for extended periods of time. Its mobility is not a function of pre-determined drift patterns,for the submarine can be directed to any desired place, at a wide range of speed and depth. With its special equipment, such as underwater television and SONAR, it can "see" and "hear" below the surface (Steele 1962). There is adequate space for modest laboratory facilities, a controlled atmosphere, and accommodation for a scientific staff, who are comfortable and have every incentive for conducting research (Molloy 1961). Another advantage, andan equally important one, is the natural protection that the arctic enviro nment offers to the submarine. The polar ice pack that presents such serious obstacles to the conduct of oceanographic research from the surface can be used to advantage by the nuclear submarine. It provides a nearly homogeneous environment free from disturbances of weather and other factors that the oceanographer encounters in the open ocean. The advantages of submarine research in the Arctic are even more readily apparent after evaluating the accomplishments of the U.S. Navy's arctic submarine cruises during the past few years. The floor of the Arctic Ocean was sounded continuously during each cruise (Lyon and Boyle 1962). As a result of this, there is now more information available on the bathymetry of the Arctic Ocean than had been obtained during the previous 75 years of arctic exploration. We have now more data relating to the ice pack over broad areas and under various seasonal conditions than ever before. Ice and water samples, as well as bathythermograph observations, also have been obtained at various points in the arctic basin (LaFond 1960). In addition the submarine itself has been a prime research tool whose advantages have not been limited to being a vehicle for transportation (Lyon and Boyle 1962). For example, surfacings through the ice have answered some of the questions relating to the ice cover. In many respects the Arctic has been the laboratory and the submarine the instrument withwhich the research was carried out (Lyon 1961). The arctic cruises of the U.S. Navy submarines have not been conducted as purely oceanographic ventures, but diversified scientific programs have been carried out during each of the cruises (Strong 1961). It is manifest from these modest beginnings that Arthur E. Molloy's "uclear submarine is an ideal platform from which to launch a research program of rather large dimensions." (quoted from pp 88-89). Also, W.F. Weeks and O.S. Lee's "The salinity distribution in young sea-ice" (pp 92-108); J.V. Drew and J.C.F. Tedrow's "Arctic soil classification and patterned ground" (pp 109-116); L.C.

5 ATKIN, Ronald Maintain the Right : The Early History of the North West Mounted Police, 1873-1900.
Macmillan, Toronto, 1973, 
ATKIN, Ronald. Maintain the Right : The Early History of the North West Mounted Police, 1873-1900. (Toronto) : Macmillan, (1973). Pp [1]-400,+ 16 pp plates. Index. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to spine. “There has seldom been a more improbable undertaking than the establishment of law and order throughout the Canadian west by a handful of men in red coats. Yet this is exactly what the North West Mounted Police did. The Mounties have been one of the world's most extravagantly romanticized forces. In his vivid accountof the first twenty-five years of their existence, Ronald Atkin shows that they had their share of misfits, incompetents, and drunkards.. But strippe d of the accumulated layers of legend and myth, their story and accomplishments are even more impressive. Hurried into existence late in 1873 to meet the threat of American whiskey traders and Indian unrest, the meagre force of three hundred men set off from Red River in July 1874 on an epic, and near disastrous, march across the prairie emptiness to the foothills of the Rockies. They quickly routed the liquor traders and established peaceful relations with the Indians. From the time the first notion of such a force entered the head of the Prime Minister of Canada, Sir John A. Macdonald, to the days of the Northwest Rebellion and the Yukon gold rush, Mr Atkin has used letters, diaries, reports and memoirs of the men who lived through these harsh and historic years to portray them as they actually were - men of flesh and blood, not just mere cardboard. As one early Mountie put it, "We were as God made us and oftentimes even worse." August 1973 marks the centennial of the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, and Mr Atkin's lively account of its formative years is an absorbing tribute to the Force.” (from the dj).

Macmillan, London and Basingstoke, 1981, ISBN:0333281969 
BARBER, John. Soviet Historians in Crisis, 1928-1932. (London and Basingstoke) : Macmillan, in association with Centre for Russian and East European Studies, University of Birmingham, (1981). First Printing. Pp. (4),v-xiii,(1),1-194. 8vo, red cloth with gilt lettering to spine, top edge dyed red. A volume in the Studies in Soviet History & Society series. General editor: R.W. Davies. "The turbulent period of the first Five-Year Plan saw radical changes in all spheres of Soviet society. Intellectual life was transformed no less profoundly than the economy or the political system. The relativelyrelaxed and pluralist atmosphere of the NEP era was replaced by a drive fo r orthodoxy. Theoretical discussion in all cultural and academic fields became intensely political. In no area of intellectual life was the process more marked than in history -- 'the most political of all sciences', in the words of M.N. Pokrovsky, the leading Soviet Marxist historian of the time. What was the source of this politicisation? Most accounts portray it as the result of official policy, aimed directly at subordinating intellectual work to political control. Dr Barber in his study of the Soviet historical world during the first pyatiletka challenges this interpretation. On the basisof both published and unpublished Soviet materials, he analyses the debate s among historians, their institutional struggles, their personal rivalries. These provide evidence for his contention that the prime source of upheaval in the historical world was the activity of the historians themselves, many of whom responded militantly to the tense and confused environment in which they worked. While initially viewed favourably by the Soviet leadership, Dr Barber argues their actions, like those of radicals in other culturalfields, increasingly came to be seen by it as harmful. Hence Stalin's dram atic intervention in an historical controversy in October 1931 -- the firstassertion of direct political control over intellectual life." - from the dustjacket. Contents : 1. Introduction; 2. Institutions and Personalities; 3. The Offensive Begins; 4. Socio-Economic Formations; 5. Russian Capitalism; 6. The Bolsheviks' Predecessors; 7. The 1905 Revolution; 8.

BEDFORD, David and Harvey SAWLER. On the Road with Dutch Mason : Prime Minister of the Blues. (Halifax, NS) : Nimbus Publishing, (2005). First Edition. Pp. (2),[ii]-iv,(2),1-202. Illustrated with 33 b&w photos. 8vo, blue photo-illustrated cardcovers.

Dutch Mason, CM (b. February 19, 1938, Lunenburg, Nova Scotia – d. December 23, 2006, Halifax) was a Canadian blues artist.

David Bedford (b. 1954).

"Smooth fusions of rhythm and melody echo in this layered biography of Canada's best-known blues man, Dutch Mason. The uncontested 'Prime Minister of the Blues', Dutch has played with the likes of Junior Wells, James Cotton and John Lee Hooker. His passion for the blues has earned him the respect of music lovers everywhere. His immense popularity has made him one of the musical legends of our time.

Set against the backdrop of an imaginary ten-city tour - complete with a run of electrifying shows followed by all-night post-gig revelries -- Dutch's unbelievable but true stories bring to life his heyday on the Canadian blues scene. Dutch's tales of touring, partying, and making music seem all the more wild alongside the academic perspective of narrator and harmonica player David Bedford." - from rear cover.

Index. 8vo, black cloth, red lettering to spine. “In this long-overdue study of one of Canada's most important political relationships, Lita-Rose Betcherman details the close association between Ernest Lapointe and Prime Minister Mackenzie King and its effect on Canadian history. Lapointe was the dominant French Canadian in federal politics from the start of the 1920s to the early years of the Second World War,serving as minister of justice and King's Quebec lieutenant. In return for promoting Liberal policies in Quebec, Lapointe was given an unusual amount of autonomy in his constituency, and, as the Prime Minister's understandin g of both the province's sensibilities and its language were poor, Lapointecame to be relied upon to provide King with the French-Canadian perspectiv e. Lapointe's role in maintaining Liberal party unity, and, by extension, national unity, was crucial. Equally important when it came to foreign affairs, he was known to take the lead over King, and the isolationist stance ofboth politicians served to undermine the League of Nations in its dealings with Italy over the invasion of Ethiopia. Betcherman draws on key primary sources for her material, including the Lapointe Papers, the King Papers, the King Diary, and the media of the times. Ernest Lapointe thus documents Canadian politics and society in a rigorous and accessible manner that will appeal to both a scholarly and general audience." - from the dj.

BHUTTO, Zulfikar Ali. "If I am Assassinated".. With an introduction by PranChopra. New Delhi, Bombay, Bangalore, Calcutta, Kanpur : Vikas Publishing House Pvt Ltd, (1979). Second Printing. Pp (8),[ix]-xxxvi,[1]-234,(2). 8vo,black cloth, red lettering to spine. "This book nearly perished. It was bl acked out in Pakistan. Its publication was banned. The press in which Bhutto's counsel tried to have it printed was sealed. But anonymous enterprise smuggled it out of the "stinking death cell" in which the former President and Prime Minister of Pakistan Zulfikar Ali Bhutto wrote it, "with the paperresting on my knee." This book contains the text of a document presented b y Bhutto to the Supreme Court of Pakistan in his appeal against the death sentence passed on him by the Lahore High Court. The disclosures were too dangerous, too sensational for the Pakistan rulers to face publicly. He accused them of conspiring with a foreign power, of being bribed by it to overthrow him because of the popularity he enjoyed among his own people. He clearly hints at the USA and some other countries too. He names names and specific sums and makes his appeal a classic case of the accused putting the accuser in the dock. Bhutto knew Pakistan as no one else did, and impending death had made his insights even sharper; it also made him more fearless in tearing the veil off what went on in Pakistan under its 3 military Presidents, General Ayub, General Yahya, and General Zia. The result is the most revealing book on Pakistan to be published yet." (from the dj). Contents : Introduction. 1. White Paper or White Lies. 2. Misrepresentation. 3. "Warfare,"Rigging and Fraud. 4.

He withdrew from direct literary ambition into his clerkship, occasionally contributing something to current poetical or critical action, but even then retiring with cheerful haste from the possibilities of become An Author, 'complete the box'. The eminence of Coleridge, Wordsworth, Southey, was not for him. Nevertheless, his personality and the original acuteness of his published and private opinions attracted to him, midway through his life, a great many friends who understood that he was worthy of their best discussion and careful chronicling." -from Blunden's preface.
