21 COONTS, Stephen. Intruders. First edition in dustjacket.
Pocket Books, New York, 1994, ISBN:0671870602 
COONTS, Stephen. The Intruders. First edition. New York : Pocket Books, (1994). Pp. (8), 1-344. Blue cloth spine with light blue paper covered boards."1973. The skies over Vietnam have finally gone silent. America has pulled out, the war is over. But for Lieutenant Jake Grafton, USN, fresh from two combat cruises and a harrowing shoot-down over Laos, the personal battle i s just beginning. His country has not welcomed him home with open arms, butwith closed minds and closed fists. When his girlfriend's father called hi m a murderer, Jake walked away. But when a stranger in a bar challenged hishonor, the man was not so lucky - the guy landed in the hospital. Jake lan ded in jail. And Grafton's shore-duty commander, who bailed him out, has devised the perfect punishment for his ace flight instructor: and eight-monthcruise on the aircraft carrier Columbia teaching jarheads - Marines - the nuances of carrier aviation. Flying missions over Vietnam was a living hell; now, as a Navy man working side by side with Marines who have no carrier aviation experience, Grafton's about to discover another world of fresh hell....The Intruders captures as never before the raw fear and exhilaration of military aviation. It is the extraordinary story of peacetime warriors who are never truly at peace: men who run on instinct and adrenaline, whose only target is the horizon and whose only goals are excellence - and survival." -- from dust jacket.

22 CREELMAN, Libby. Split : A Novel. First Edition
Goose Lane, Fredericton, N.B., 2015, ISBN:9780864925060 
CREELMAN, Libby. Split : A Novel. (Fredericton, New Brunswick) : Goose Lane, (2015). First Printing. Pp (6),7-373,(1). 8vo, green card covers. Elizabeth 'Libby' Creelman (b. 1957, Massachusetts). In the aftermath of the 1960s, tensions simmer beneath the surface of a small town in rural Massachusetts. Watergate and the war in Vietnam have shaken Americans' faith in their government, the energy crisis clouds the future, and the civil rights movement has given way to uneasy race relations. But identical twin sisters Apriland Pilgrim live happily on their parents' farm, sharing a secret language and uncanny closeness. The twins shelter each other from the wider world, until adolescence and the hard realities of adult life catch up to them. In1975, when the girls are sixteen years old, their father single handedly r ecruits a young Bahamian doctor to minister to the town's residents. While racial prejudice keeps patients away from his door, the idle "Dr. Panama," as April and Pilgrim refer to him, spends much of his time with the family.While the relationship between the girls and the young doctor begins to st rain the bounds of propriety and comes to light, the family is torn apart. Years later, on the eve of the 2008 election that would sweep Barack Obama into the White House, the adult Pilgrim, long estranged from her family, learns her father has died and her mother, now suffering the ravages of Alzheimer's disease, is living in homecare. When she returns to Massachusetts tosee her mother, Pilgrim discovers a country in financial crisis and her bu colic childhood home in shambles. It is in the midst of this decay that Pilgrim picks up the threads of her past and finds herself finishing what was begun three decades earlier. Libby Creelman lives in St. John's, Newfoundland. Very good. 11.00

CREESE, Gillian and Wendy FRISBY, (eds.). Feminist Community Research : Case Studies and Methodologies. Edited by Gillian Creese and Wendy Frisby. Vancouver: UBC Press, (2011). First Printing. Pp. (4),[v]-x,(2),[1]-254,(2). 8vo, decorated yellow card covers. "Grounded as they are in fieldwork, the interdisciplinary case studies in this volume acknowledge the real methodological and ethical issues that researchers can encounter as they negotiate contested research relationships. The authors discuss the strategies -- successful and unsuccessful -- that they have employed to overcome these challenges. The authors' collective experiences working with diverse groups, fromimmigrant and Aboriginal women in Vancouver to poverty-reduction practitio ners in Vietnam, reveal that truly equitable research projects require thatwe question core concepts and address crucial issues such as the promises and limits of reflexivity; the politics of place, time, and resources; ethical dilemmas and emotional responses; and the way issues of social justice,policy, and social change are embedded in research." - from the rear cover .

Index. 8vo, red cloth, white lettering to spine. Myron Smith, The Soviet Navy, 1941-1978 : A Guide toSources in English 399. A review of U.S. naval capabilities in the Cold Wa r period, contrasted with an appreciation of the growth of the Soviet fleet, culminating in a plea not to cut naval defence spending. "Most Americans are aware of the Soviet Union's enormous armies and of its ICBMs zeroed in on U.S. cities, strategic airbases, and Minuteman missile sites, but tftey are otten unaware of a greater danger: the Russians' determined drive to become masters of the sea on which America's very life depends. Whether or not we like it, Russian submarine surface fleets cruise the Atlantic, the Caribbean, the Pacific, and the Indian Ocean. In the Mediterranean, where the U.S. 6tn Fleet once reigned supreme, a powerful Russian fleet sails, ready to counter any U.S. move. While the Soviet Union has long had the world's largest submarine fleet, the United States has felt secure in its lead in nuclear powered and armed submarines. Now, even in this latter category Russia is on the verge of surpassing U.S. capabilities. Twenty-five years ago the United States boasted the largest navy and merchant marine fleet. Today, the Russians have taken the lead in both areas. In addition, Moscow holds avital edge in oceanographic and deep-sea fisting fleets, which serve every where as adjuncts of her navy for operations and for intelligence. Such is the background for The Soviet Sea Challenge. In early chapters Admiral Eller traces tne historic influence of the sea on the destinies of America and Russia through World War II and focuses sharply on the role of the Navy in the desperate Battle of the Atlantic and the bitter Pacific struggle, from Pearl Harbor to the Coral Sea, Midway, Guadalcanal, Leyte, and Okinawa. He then covers the key events of the past quarter century, including the impact of sea power in Korea, where the U.S. Navy helped to save the toehold at Pusan and to execute General MacArthur's daring amphibious coup at Inchon, and Vietnam, where the U.S. Navy has demonstrated its versatility in assault, gunfire support, air interdiction, and riverine warfare. Additional chapters cover technological innovations in naval aircraft, missiles, submarines, and high-speed ampnibious attack ships—assault helicopter carriers, for example. What emerges is a serious message. Technological advances can haveno real value, Admiral Eller contends, if the United States continues its current policy of naval cutbacks in face of the phenomenal growth of Sovietsea power, which has aiready brought Russia large gains, from Cuba to Afri ca and the Middle East. The threat to the United States, if she does not regain her naval supremacy, as well as to all non-Communist nations, is far more serious than any that has previously confronted the nation."

A huge fire ensued, and McCain barely escaped before a thousand-pound bomb on his plane exploded, causing a chain reaction with other bombs on surrounding planes. The crew struggled for days to extinguish the fires, the 5,000 men on board experiencing different kinds of hell - some trapped in damaged compartments waiting to die, some battling rivers of flaming jet fuel in order to rescue their buddies. Almost all of them were innocent eighteen-and nineten-year olds, but in an instant they were thrust into a tragedy t hat nearly destroyed the ship and took the lives of 134 men ." from the dj flap.

His s cholarly, yet highly readable account presents colourful presidents, professors, and students, notable intellectual figures from Daniel Wilson to Northrop Frye and Marshall McLuhan, and dramatic events such as the admission of women in the 1880s, the University College fire of 1890, involvement in the two world wars, the student protests of the 1960s, and the succesful renewal of the 1980s and 1990s. Friedland draws on archival records, private diaries, oral interviews, and a vast body of secondary literature. He draws also on his own experience of the University as a student in the 1950s and,later, as a faculty member and dean of law who played a part in some of th e critical developments he unfolds. The history of the University of Toronto as recounted by Friedland is intimately connected with events outside theUniversity. The transition in Canadian society, for example, from early de pendence on Great Britain and fear of the United States to the present dominance of American culture and ideas is mirrored in the University. There too can be seen the effects of the two world wars, the cold war, and the Vietnam war. As Canadian society and culture have developed and changed, so toohas the University. The history of the University in a sense is the histor y of Cnada. The first full treatment of the subject in seventy-five years, The University of Toronto: A History is published to coincide with the University's 175th anniversary. Anyone who attended the University of Toronto or who is interested in the growth of Canada's intellectual heritage will enjoy this authoritative ana engaging work." (from the dj).
