43 BERNATH, Stuart L. Squall Across the Atlantic : American Civil War Prize Cases and Diplomacy. First Edition in dustjacket
University of California Press, Berkeley and Los Angeles, 1970, ISBN:0520015622 
BERNATH, Stuart L. Squall Across the Atlantic : American Civil War Prize Cases and Diplomacy. Berkeley and Los Angeles : University of California Press, 1970. Pp x,229. 8vo, blue cloth. "Shortly after President Lincoln proclaimed a blockade of the Southern ports, the British government warned its subjects against violating either British or international law in derogation of their duty as neutrals. However, as Lord Russell reported, Englishmen would, if money were to be made by it, send supplies even to hell at the riskof burning their sails. When Union ships set out to seize the blocackade-r unners, British merchantmen and American warships were sailing on a collision course, leaving a wake of vexatious diplomatic, legal, and political problems for their governments to settle. In this first comprehensive study ofthe Civil War prize cases, the author traces the events and their far-reac hing implications on both sides of the Atlantic. He explains how the court cases offered a crucial test of the Lincoln administration's power to wage war and how the decisions affected presidential emergency powers. He pointsout significant disagreements within the administration and shows the comp lex relationship between national self-interest and international maritime law as Britain and the United States exchanged their traditional roles of belligerent and neutral.

Halifax Waterfront Development Corporation Limited, Halifax, 2007, ISBN:9780973883022 0973883022 / 9780973883022 
BOILEAU, John. Where the Water Meets the Land : The Story of the Halifax Harbour Waterfront. (Halifax): Waterfront Development Corporation Limited / (Dartmouth, NS : Saltscapes Publishing Limited, (2007). Waterfront Development Corporation Limited 30th Anniversary Edition. First Edition. Pp. (6),vii-ix,10-80. Double column. Illustrated throughout. Oblong 8vo, photo-illustrated card covers with blue spine.

John Boileau (b. ?) long-serving Canadian miliary officer and author.

"The waterfront is the historical core of commercial and naval Halifax. In the past, the waterfront was very animated, with a broad range and intensity of goings-on - a compliment to the thriving commercial and government activities further up the hill. From mid-twentieth century, as ships became larger and handling facilities more sophisticated, major shipping moved southward and northward to container terminals, while the navy moved northward.

Over the same period, Halifax declined as a fishing port because of improved transportation connections to more remote coastal areas and pollution in the harbour, which resulted in declining fish stocks. These factors left the old waterfront to deteriorate, both commercially and physically, until only a handful of users were left scattered over its length.

The waterfront should be a place to work, eat, live, shop, walk, play and relax - a place where office workers spend their lunch hours, where people stroll or attend the theatre and visit museaums, a place where families live and tourists visit. By the 1970s, it was none of these.

In 1976, the Waterfront Development Corporation Limited was created, with responsibilities for the redevelopment of the Halifax, Dartmouth, and - later - Bedford waterfronts to restore the flavour and vigour of an earlier time. In Where the Water Meets the Land, author and historian John Boileau recounts the story of Halifax Harbour and its waterfront from prehistory to the modern day, detailing the rise and decline of this historic area, and its rejuvenation during the least 30 years under the guidance of the Waterfront Development Corporation Limited." - from the rear cover.
