Edgar Allan Poe's satirical short story about a female writer who is told by her editor that she must kill herself and then record the sensations of her death.
Did you know that the United States of America began life as a confederacy, and that it was, in fact, officially called "the Confederacy" between 1781 and 1789? Did you know that for those eight years the U.S. technically operated as, and was also nicknamed, "The Confederate States of America," and that because of this our first constitution was named "The Articles of Confederation"?
Did you know that the conservative South fought the liberal North, not to "preserve slavery," as has been falsely taught, but to preserve the original limited confederate government of the Founding Fathers and the conservative ideals embedded in our first constitution, the Articles of Confederation? And did you know that it was for these reasons that in 1861 the seceding Southern states called themselves "The Confederate States of America"?
In this brief but educational book, The Articles of Confederation Explained: A Clause-by-Clause Study of America's First Constitution, award-winning author and historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook explores these topics and more in an in-depth look at the thirteen Articles of Confederation, first formulated in 1777. The complete and original text of each article is provided, along with a clear and simple explanation describing its meaning and intended purpose. Also included in this wonderfully illustrated little work is a list of the ten presidents of the U.S. Confederacy, who served, according to specifications laid out in Article Nine, between the years 1779 and 1789.
With this book, the companion to Colonel Seabrook's bestselling title, The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained, you will gain new insight into some of the fascinating facts that are left out of our history books. Discover for yourself why some of America's greatest thinkers, such as the author's cousin Patrick Henry, embraced the Articles of Confederation, and argued against replacing them with the U.S. Constitution and a bigger more powerful central government.

In addition to explaining the importance of policies and the fundamentals of their creation, Larson and Totten analyze and offer model policies for over 65 crucial areas, including: personnel and employment practices; staff and patron conduct; access to library materials, services, and facilities; collection development; and, reference and information services. The companion CD-ROM reproduces all of the policies, for easy replication or adaptation to your library.
This book is an introduction to "multi-messenger" astrophysics. It covers the many different aspects connecting particle physics with astrophysics and cosmology and introduces astrophysics using numerous experimental findings recently obtained through the study of high-energy particles.
Taking a systematic approach, it comprehensively presents experimental aspects from the most advanced laboratories and detectors, as well as the theoretical background. The book is aimed at graduate students and post-graduate researchers with a basic understanding of particle and nuclear physics. It will also be of interest to particle physicists working in accelerator/collider physics who are keen to understand the mechanisms of the largest accelerators in the Universe.
The book draws on the extensive lecturing experience of Professor Maurizio Spurio from the University of Bologna.
