61 Annual Register BURKE, Edmund Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks Politics and Literaturefor the Years : 1758 to 1808
Dodsley and others, London, 1758, 
Annual Register . Annual Register or a View of the History, Politicks / Politics and Literature for the Year. London
The Annual Register (originally subtitled "A View of the History, Politicks and Literature of the Year ... ") is a long-established reference work, written and published each year, which records and analyses the year’s major events, developments and trends throughout the world.
It was first written in 1758 under the editorship of Edmund Burke. This collection contains much on the wars and revolutions of the eighteenth century, as well as chronicling development in most spheres of endeavour.
"The Annual Register was created in 1758 by the publishers James and Robert Dodsley. On 24 April 1758 the Dodsley brothers signed a contract with Edmund Burke (1729–97) to write and edit the material for The Annual Register, which was conceived as an annual publication which would review the history, politics and literature of the day.
Born in Ireland, Burke had trained as a lawyer before abandoning this field and turning to writing. He was an up-and-coming member of the intelligentsia and had already written several notable works, published by Dodsley. According to his contract with Dodsley, Burke was paid £100 per annum as editor of The Annual Register. In its original form, The Annual Register comprised a long historical essay on the “History of the Present War” (the Seven Years' War 1756–63), a Chronology, which gave an account of interesting and noteworthy events in Britain over the previous year, and a collection of “State Papers”, a miscellany of primary source material which included official documents, speeches,letters and accounts. In his preface to the 1758 volume Burke noted the difficulties he had faced in writing the history section of the book. Taking the “broken and unconnected materials” and creating from them “one connected narrative” had been, he commented, “a work of more labour than may at first appear”. Nevertheless, his perseverance and skill as an historian meant that by the time of its publication the first volume of The Annual Register contained a unique, contemporaneous account of the war, analysing its origins and development with a perspective not readily available at the time in newspapers or magazines. As a result the book sold widely, with the first volume going through five editions in its first 10 years. Given the conventions of the day, within which journalism was seen as a disreputable profession for a gentleman, Burke was publicly reticent about his connection with The Annual Register. However, his biographers are in agreement that Burke wrote and edited the book single-handedly until 1765 when he entered Parliament. From this time Thomas English was closely involved in writing the book and is regarded by some authorities as having taken over the editorship from Burke in that year. Scholars are divided on the question of Burke’s association with the book thereafter, although many suggest that he continued to contribute to the history section and that he played a significant role in overseeing The Annual Register’s compilation until the 1790s, even though much of the editorial work by this stage was being done by others."

See William B. Todd's A Bibliography of Edmund Burke, (2nd ed., 1982) pp.45-68, for Burke’s involvement with the Annual Register.

(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. Bliss's "Adaptations of arctic and alpine plants to environmental conditions" (pp 117-144); C.R. Lewis's "Icing mound on Sadlerochit River, Alaska" (pp 145-150: John A.Pihlainen's "An approximation of probable permafrost occurrence" (pp 151-154); C. Di Giobanni, Jr., J.W. Rachlin, R.F.

"This volume contains a handful of stories, written over the initial years of the Naval Military Lyceum "Almirante Guillermo Brown", told in a simple manner, as grandpa might tell tnem to hisgrandson by the fireside, on a winter's evening. Tales of the Heroic Navy, the navy of those good old "gringos" and "criollos" who were not afraid to risk their hides for the sake of our white-and-blue poncho. The stories, b y reason of chronology, tell of the birth of our navy and sailors, of thosewho defended our country in Paraguay, in Patagonia or wherever it was. And of the fightingmen who, without bluster, swashbuckling or renunciation, fo rged our liberty, our sovereignty and our future. In a spirit of contentionagainst those who dare say that "the Argentine Navy has no history", these pages, which are a picture of love of country and historical veracity, are dedicated in all sincerity to trie Argentines who share my ideals, and to the cadets of the Naval Lyceum, once my pupils. now graduates and always myfriends."

"The Halifax Explosion of 1917 is a defining event inthe Canadian consciousness, yet it has never been the subject of a sustain ed analytical history. Astonishingly, until now no one has consulted the large federal government archives that contain first-hand accounts of the disaster and the response of national authorities. Canada's recently established navy was at the epicentre of the crisis. Armstrong reveals the navy's compelling, and little-known, story by carefully retracing the events preceding the disaster and the role of the military in its aftermath. He catches the pulse of disaster response in official Ottawa and provides a compelling analysis of the legal manoeuvres, rhetoric, blunders, public controversy, and crisis management that ensued. His disturbing conclusion is that federalofficials knew of potential dangers in the harbour before the explosion, t ook no corrective action, and kept the information from the public. As a result, a Halifax naval officer was made a scapegoat and the navy received lasting, and mostly undeserved, vilification. This is a compelling read not only for military and naval devotees but for anyone who wants to understand one of the events that shaped Canada in the twentieth century." - from the dj. Chapters : 1.

77 ARSENAULT, Chris. Blowback : A Canadian History of Agent Orange and the War at Home.
Fernwood Publishing, Halifax & Winnipeg , 2009, ISBN:9781552662960 
ARSENAULT, Chris. Blowback : A Canadian History of Agent Orange and the Warat Home. Halifax & Winnipeg : Fernwood Publishing, (2009). Second Printing . Pp (8),1-115,(5). Illustrated. Map. Index. 8vo, illustrated card covers. "The village of Enniskillen, a sleepy cluster of a few dozen houses in New Brunswick’s Queens County, has never been invaded by a foreign power. But during the 1950s to 1970s, the village was ground zero for a different kind of offensive, this one launched by the American and Canadian military against its own people with the deadly dioxin Agent Orange. Between 1956 and 1984 the Canadian military and its private subcontractors sprayed more than 1 million litres of rainbow herbicides around New Brunswick. The American military was invited to test Agent Purple and other toxins on Canadian soil after the chemicals had been banned by the U.S. Congress. This is the story of a war coming home; a story of the military and economic currents that allowed Agent Orange to blow through trees and into rivers in New Brunswick. More than anything, it’s a story of soldiers, civilians and local residents who blew back against the government and companies who poisoned them." - from the back cover. Very good. 9.00

"Is the United States defense establishment today well run? To ask that question is to provoke a set of additional Queries. For example, are resources allocated efficiently enough, in peacetime, to produce well trained and well equipped combat units? In wartime, will the command arrangements currently in force be sufficient to provide for the combined arms approach that modern battles require? Are the military properly organized so as to give timely and integrated advice to their civilian superiors? Have the civilians in the defense establishment usurped the traditional prerogatives of the military? Is there a process in place that produces a ciear-cut, rational strategy to govern the use of force? Are decisions on programs and force structures clearly related to strategy? In its structure and operation, how does the American defense establishment compare to those of other nations? Is it better or more poorly managed? Are there lessons for improvement that can be derived from a study of how other nations manage their defense establishments? Finally, if some changes in structure and procedure are necessary, what are the alternatives, and the costs and benefits of each? These are the range of subjects to which the authors in this volume address themselves." (from the Introduction by Robert J. Art).
