KICKING ASS IN CANADIAN POLITICS., Kinsella, Warren.  Inscribed.
101 Kinsella, Warren. Inscribed. KICKING ASS IN CANADIAN POLITICS.
Random House Canada, n.p., 2001, first printing. 
245 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H), hard cover in dust jacket. ISBN 0679310851 INSCRIBED ON HALF TITLE PAGE: "TO T____ BEST WISHES & MANY THANKS! WARREN NOV. 2001". ALSO INSCRIBED ON VERSO OF FRONT FREE ENDPAPER: "T____, HOPEFULLY MY RETIREMENT WILL BE AS ENJOYABLE AS YOURS, MIKE HARRIS". The second inscription is in two different coloured inks (possibly two different hands). "(F)or the first time, Kinsella lifts the veil on what really goes on inside campaigns - and it's not pretty. This is the good, the bad and the ugly of partisan politics, and Kinsella argues that all three are necessary for a healthy and democratic political dialogue. But this isn't a cynic's book on how to manipulate the voting public. The advice from the Prince of Darkness is 'stay on message, and stick to the truth'. Those practitioners of the black arts who resort to lies and cheating are most often burned at the stake by the voters. And he marshals plenty of evidence and insider stories from the hottest campaigns and campaigners in Canada and the United States - among them, James Carville, Besey Wright, Haley Barbour and Dick Morris - to prove his point. Your'll learn about push-polling, frugging, ratf**king, quick response, dirty tricks and oppo, and you'll learn how to counter them all. You'll be treated to Kinsella's Twelve Handy Tips for Surviving Encounters with Unethical, Unscrupulous, Unprincipled Political Journalists, as well as to his unique rating system on whose political reporting you can trust. This is a must-read not only for political junkies but also for marketers and PR flaks alike: it is a handbook, not only on how to win, but how to make sure your opponent loses." Minor wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has some minor rubbing/tiny shallow dints on rear panel. Very Good+/Very Good+

THE KAISER: A LIFE OF WILHELM II, LAST EMPEROR OF GERMANY., Kurenberg, Joachim von.  Translated by H.T. Russell and Herta Hagen.
102 Kurenberg, Joachim von. Translated by H.T. Russell and Herta Hagen. THE KAISER: A LIFE OF WILHELM II, LAST EMPEROR OF GERMANY.
Cassell, London, 1954, first British edition. 
370 pp, 8vo (8 11/16" H), hard cover in dust jacket. B&w plates. "(The author) first met Kaiser Wilhelm when serving as a Guards officer in Potsdam. His associations at this time and his subsequent life in the German Embassies at Constantinople, Rome and Vienna, provided him with experience of Court circles which enables him to reproduce, in all essentials, the atmosphere of the pre-1914 period of the Kaiser's life. Appointed as biographer by the Kaiser at Doorn, he was able to consult his subject frequently, and the results of these numerous interviews are incorporated in the text of the work, so that the Kaiser's point of view is given in juxtaposition to the judgement of others. To assist the reader further in passing judg e m e n t o n the man, the opinions of the Kaiser's colleagues, his friends, relatives and enemies, are also interwoven. This life is primarily a personal biography, the intention being to provide a full portrait of the man rather than a study of hi s ti me s. T he author had full access to the State Archives in Berlin and Potsdam, and his work is fully documented." Minor edge wear, slight bump at bottom corner of both boards. Dust jacket has light edge wear/wrinkling, a few small edge t ear s - o ne wit h cr ease, light rubbing/soiling - mostly on rear panel, a few tiny scuffs, one or two foxing marks on flaps.

103 Lake, Carney. REFLECTED GLORY.
Leo Cooper, London, (1994), reprint. 
227 pp, large 8vo, hard cover in dust jacket. "Carney Lake served for six years in a Royal Marines Commando Unit and has set out to produce a literary portrait of his unit. The result is arguably as vivid and accurate a depiction of Britain's figh ting men as has appeared in print for many a year. Only the real names of personnel have been spared for obvious reasons. For the rest, the author describes things exactly as they happened...The nail-biting descriptions of patrols on th e s t r e e t s o f Belfast, of deploying to face an opposing army during the Turkish invasion of Cyprus, and of border duty in South Armagh strain the reader's nerves to breaking point...unquestionably gives expression to a generation of Britain' s p ro fe ss io na l so l di ers. It paints an unforgettable picture of life at the sharp end by one who was there..." Faint pencil erasure mark on free front endpaper. Dust jacket has light rubbing, minor wrinkle at top of rear flap-fold. NF/VG +

THE BOYD GANG., Lamb, Marjorie and Pearson, Barry.
104 Lamb, Marjorie and Pearson, Barry. THE BOYD GANG.
Toronto Peter Martin 1976 0887781454 / 9780887781452 First Edition Hard Cover Very Good Very Good- 
256 pp, 9 1/4" H. B&w photographs. "On Friday, September 9, 1949, Edwin Boyd (a little drunk at the time) withdrew $2,300 from a Toronto suburban branch of the Bank of Montreal - at the point of a gun. Bullets whistled past Boyd's head as he left the bank. The manager emptied his revolver at the fleeing bandit, but missed every time. Perhaps if Boyd had been shot or captured in the keystone cops chase that followed, his career would have ended the day it began. But he wasn't and it didn't. Two years later, Boyd was the nation's most notorious bandit and the leader of a phenomenon known as 'The Boyd Gang'. The Canadian public was terrorized and screaming for blood - and still more titillating newspaper stories. When Toronto's Sgt. of Detectives Edmund 'The Chinaman' Tong (a Welshman) was gunned down by gang members, the public waited for the final act in the saga: retribution. But the real story - the intrigues, motives, love affairs, betrayals, and the modus operandi of both criminals and police - was more fascinating than the most lurid fabrications dreamed up by the press. This story is told here for the first time." Light wrinkling at bottom of spine, very light browning to edges of text block. Dust jacket has very light edge wear, minor wrinkling at bottom of spine, scattered very small scuff/rubbing marks - mainly on rear panel.

"A recreation of Francis's first twenty-four years, this fascinating volume describes the exacting life of the young prince under the surveillance of a despotic uncle, the arrangment of his first t wo marriages, the tragedies and joys of his family life...deals with the problems faced by Joseph II (Francis's uncle, Habsburg ruler of Austria) in his efforts to train his imperial nephew, recreates the atmosphere of the ducal court of Tuscany, the imperious air of the 18th century Habsburg Imperial Palace, and the milieu of the Vienna of the period. We leave Francis 'the husband and father' on the point of becoming 'enemy of the French Revolution'." Light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine.

107 Leggo, William. THE HISTORY OF THE ADMINISTRATION OF THE RIGHT HONORABLE FREDERICK TEMPLE, EARL OF DUFFERIN, K.P., G.C.M.G., K.C.B., F.R.S., LATE GOVERNOR GENERAL OF CANADA.
Montreal Lovel 1878 First Edition Hard Cover Good No Jacket

Two b&w portrait frontispieces (Lord Dufferin/Lady Dufferin) with tissue guard between. "The slow and steady development of the principles of Responsible Government in Canada, under Lords Durham, Sydenham, Metcalfe, Elgin, Monck, and Lisgar, and the unswerving devotedness of Lord Dufferin to those principles, should make an historical account of his Administration acceptable to all interested in them. It is chiefly with a view to point out this gradual development, and to show the means used by Lord Dufferin in the process, that this work has been projected. No Canadian statesman can hereafter pretend to even a fair knowledge of his duties or responsibilities without an intimate acquaintance with the details of Lord Dufferin's Administration; - and no inhabitant of Canada can with even tolerable clearness understand the history of his country in the absence of a familiarity with its progress since the system of Responsible Government was established." From the Preface. Previous owner's name, date and place in pencil on front pastedown, light foxing mark at the bottom of the frontispieces - more on the tissue guard, tiny crease at top corner of pages 97 to 108, very light browning to pages, a few small light stains on front free endpaper, browning to edges of text block with two very small stains on top of text block light edge wear to boards - moderate at corners and at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing and a few tiny stains on boards.

108 Linderer, Gary A. BLACK BERETS AND PAINTED FACES: THE STORY OF A LRP IN VIETNAM. (THE EYES OF THE EAGLE / EYES BEHIND THE LINES.)
Garden City, New York Guild America 1991 Book Club Edition Hard Cover Very Good+ Very Good 
486 pp, 8 1/2" H. B&w photographs. "They were the men of F Co., 58th Infantry, LRPs Company (the Howlers) of the 101st Airborne. Now, in this exclusive 2-in-1 volume, comprising 'Eyes of the Eagle' and 'Eyes Behind the Lines', Gary Linderer takes you into the bush with the LRPs. There, you'll see everything he saw and experience everything he did. It began for Linderer when he volunteered to 'serve with the best of the best' in Nam. Within two weeks of landing at Bien Hoa Air Base, he raised his hand again to join the LRPs. He'd put himself in line for some of the hairiest assignments in Nam - performed with some unusual individuals. Linderer at times alternated walking point with a soldier who loved danger so much that he would roam out of touch with his team, or sneak beneath the perimeter wire at night with only a Ka-Bar knife. It didn't end until Linderer had been wounded several times, found himself a team leader surrounded by 'new meat', and won a battlefield commission! Along the way his missions ranged from booby-trapping a VC ams cache followed by a quick extraction back to base, to an operation that was supposed to last a few hours - and turned into a seven-day nightmare in a fog-shrouded valley 'Mr. Charles' called home. Join the men of F Company and see what it was like to be the 'eyes of the Eagle'!" Very light wrinkling at bottom of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear, light wrinkling at top/bottom of spine, light rubbing.

In particular, he talks about his teammates - the magnificent Mark Messier, the Flying Finns, the unbeatable Grant Fuhr, Boy Wonder Wayne Gretzky and, of course, the controversial Glen Sather.

379 pp, large 8vo (9 1/4" H). B&w and colour illustrations (maps, plates). "(T)he story of the Siege of Quebec and its climax, the Battle of the Plains of Abraham. A brief bloody affair, it brought a brutal end to the Seven Years' War in North America, the first truly global conflict - and the first truly modern one - waged against civilians and cities as well as soldiers and fortifications. This is a story of strategy, generals and geopolitics - and ordinary people. A British sailor, an American irregular, a French officer, a Huron warrior, a nun who tended the wounded; their impressions, captured in letters and journals, give us a new, more human view of the battle, one often absent from the history books. By day's end September 13 (1759), Wolfe was dead and Montcalm dying, the British victorious and the French on the run. France's New World empire was finished. The battle was over, but the musket volleys fired that morning continue to echo through our world. The hardships of North America's First Nations, the birth of Canada, and the rise of the United States can all be traced to that morning's actions. Our world was created on that field 250 years ago.
