Excerpt from Washington and His Colleague: A Chronicle of the Rise and Fail of Federalism Washington was glad to remain at Mount Vernon as long as possible after he had consented to serve as President, enjoying the life of a country gentleman, which was now much more suited to his taste than official employment. He was weary of public duties and the heavy demands upon his time which had left him with little leisure for his private life at home. His correspondence during this period gives ample evidence of his extreme reluctance to reassume public responsibilities.

The founding, structure, and operations of the League of Arab States since its organization in 1945 are analyzed. In the first half of the book the author discusses the League's decision-making processes, considers regional dynamics, the polarization of power between Egypt and Iraq, and the impact of such major issues as Palestine on the League. He considers the League's techniques of cooperation with the United Nations and its specialized agencies, neutralism and nonalignment, and the boycott of Israel. In the latter half of the study, three major operational questions typical of regional organizations are examined: functional integration in cultural, social, economic, and scientific affairs; problems of regional security and peaceful settlement of disputes; and interaction between the Arab League and the United Nations.

These fun, illustrated chapter books for 7 to 9 year old readers feature the adventures and misadventures of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless team, including Chad their erstwhile bat boy who's got a huge baseball card collection and sat-happy Dylan, Chad's best friend. While the team, its league and the games are fictional, the baseball cards the bat boy uses to help solve the player's problems are based on real Topps cards. Book One: Just when they seem poised to get hot as a ball team, the Porcupines have a tough series against the league-leading Heron Lake Humdingers and the entire Porcupine staff seem more prone to mistakes on and off the field. This is especially true for Chad, who feels even clumsier and more awkward than usual compared to the Humdingers' League star who's been sent down for an offensive slump and shaky defense. Mike seems to mishandle or boot every ball that bounces his way. Superstitious even for a baseball player, Mike sticks religiously to his routine and can't figure out what he's been doing differently since the jinx began. Chad finds a major league rookie card and figures out the jinx, helping Stammer settle his nerves on the field and seems to settle his own nerves on the sidelines.

These fun, illustrated chapter books for 7 to 9 year old readers feature the adventures and misadventures of the Pine City Porcupines, a hapless team, including Chad their erstwhile bat boy who's got a huge baseball card collection and sat-happy Dylan, Chad's best friend. While the team, its league and the games are fictional, the baseball cards the bat boy uses to help solve the player's problems are based on real Topps cards. Book Two: Chad's parents float the idea of sending Chad to camp for a more 'comprehensive' summer, as his dad puts it: he says Chad will love the canoeing and camping, but Chad suspects they just want to get him away from the junk food at the ball park and into a health-conscious cafeteria. Chad goes to work feeling doomed, sure it's his last day with friends, baseball and hotdogs. He commiserates with Sammy, a hefty player off the bench, at the concession stand. Sammy had problems of his own. He had a big swing but is too slow to play a position except for an occasional emergency on one of the corners. He's also slow on the base paths. He needs to prove himself capable of brief bursts of speed. As luck would have it, they're playing the Farminton Weevils in the full heat of a pennant race and the Weevil pitcher is one of the best in the Prairie League at picking off potential base stealers. Chad finds a baseball card showing the player's single, but important stolen base. With Abby's help, Chad convinces Sammy that he can duplicate this feat and stay with the Porcupines. Abby as a similar strategy for Chad to evade camp and keep his job.
