"Jack Fitzgerald delves deep into the political records of the Responsible Government era in Newfoundlandto reveal the widespread corruption and incompetence of Newfoundland polit icians. In just forty-five years, self-government was handled so irresponsibly England considered taking it away. In the decades that followed things deteriorated even more. A sad commentary detailing this entire era is the only one Prime Minister Sir Robert Bond preserved in his private papers. This was to assure future historians would have no reason to question his integrity. It was a banner day in Newfoundland history in 1949 when that whole sorry era was laid to rest." - from the rear cover. Contents: 1. Campaign Funds from Bootlegging; 2.

"Behind the modern railways map of Canada, with its great transcontinental routes, its network of grain lines in the Prairies, its northern extensions tapping the mineral riches of Labrador and the Northwest Territories, lie 150 years of colourful and exciting history. The first short lines, built to bypass obstacles in the waterways that formed the natural routes of settlement, were followed bydecades of speculation and competition, as growing towns and cities sought to secure their share of expanding trade, and rival companies struggled to ensure their rails would carry it. Meanwhile, confederation of the dispara te colonies in the Dominion of Canada was made possible by the Canadian Pacific, who construction was one of the epics of railway engineering, and which was to form the basis of a global transport and industrial conglomerate.With the consolidation of the early rivals into the Canadian National syst em in the years after the First World War, the country had tweo systems spanning the continent, and enterprising parivate and provincial lines provided complimentary north - south routes. Despie the vagaries of the world economy, and the growing competition from other forms of transport, Canada's railways continue to carry staggering quantities of grain, minerals and otherraw materials, while the recent formation of VIA Rail has enabled passenge r services to be maintained." -from the dj.

With 142 b&w photos, a map and afew other illustrations in the text. 8vo, grey photo-illustrated card cove rs. In the Images of Our Past series. "It is hard to ignore the past in a town like Amherst in northern Nova Scotia. The setting for Leon Trotsky's internment in one of Canada's largest World War One prisoner-of-war camps andfor Henry George Ketchum's unusual plans to build a ship railway, Amherst has witnessed the rise -- and sometimes fall -- of personal fortunes and revolutionary dreams. Once the battleground for the historic struggle betweenthe English and the French, it has been called home by notable figures of all kinds, including four fathers of Confederation and renowned artist AlexColville. 'Historic Amherst' looks at the fascinating evolution of the sma ll community of 'Morse's Corner' into 'Busy Amherst', an industrial centre for the production of steel, iron, and automobiles at its peak in the early1900s. Supported by priceless photographs that testify to Amherst's early prosperity as well as to its social, sporting, recreational and agrarian past, this illustrated history promises to inform and delight as it traces the significant moments in this once-bustling bordertown." - from the rear cover.

"In 1968, two huge US railroads, the Pennsylvania and the New York Central, combined into a behemoth that was supposed to help revolutionize the US railroad system. 1970, the merged railroad went bust. How did it happen?" This collection of twelve articles from the Wall Street Journal probes the answers to this question. "Its reporters bring you the inside story about the bickering, the confusion, the politics that hurt the big company. And they tell you more -about a group of officers who bailed out of the company just before its problems became public knowledge, and about a big brokerage firm that led a double life in the months just before the railroad's collapse." -from the back cover Vg. 35.00
