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.
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.

The Major Laws and Decrees of the Third Reich is a collection of all the principal laws and decrees brought in over the period of Nazi rule in Germany in the 1930s and 1940s. The book contains not only the full text in translation of the major legislation of the period, but also many of the much-neglected supplementary laws and decrees which often impacted on the laws themselves and which contextualise them and help us make sense of them today.
In addition to the full text of the laws, an introduction will deal with issues such as the role of law and the judiciary, how laws and decrees were formulated, mechanisms of consent and subversion of the established law. Over three chronological sections, divided into thematic parts, J.A.S. Grenville and Jeremy Noakes include laws which covered all areas of government, the economy, race and ideological indoctrination. Each part and section will have a commentary discussing issues such as the relationship between party and state, the rise of the party and the SS, and the politicisation of the legal system during the war.
Many of the laws included in this volume have never been translated into English before, and so together with the unique commentary and the contextualisation of the laws, the book is an essential reference work for all students of Nazi Germany.
