162 pp, 8 3/4" H. "In this collection of his speeches, Robert Thompson, national leader of the Social Credit Party of Canada, examines many important questions facing Canadians, and explains with clarity and sincerity his party's platform and philosophies. In his own words, 'My remarks are directed at all who believe in the importance of the individual in a free society, who are concerned with the inordinate growth of centralized, paternalistic, governmental power and who are willing to rise up and do something about it - if the leftward trend of the past thirty years is ever to be slowed, halted or reversed, a mobilization of conservative intellectual resources is urgently called for.' " Minor wrinkling at top of spine. Dust jacket has minor edge wear - mainly at top/bottom of spine and flap-folds, minor soiling on spine.

Book 1: Cloud Warrior - 1988 reprint, ISBN 0722185162 - "Ten centuries ago the Old Time ended when Earth's cities melted in the War of a Thousand Suns. Now the lethal high technology of the Amtrak Federation's underground stronghold is unleashed on Earth's other survivors - the surface-dwelling Mutes. But the primitive Mutes possess ancient powers greater than any machine - ." Book 2. First Family - 1987 reprint, ISBN 0722185170 - "After countless years of fighting - of pitting sophisticated technology against the primitive surface-dwelling people who seemed to posses supernatural powers - the Federation was still no nearer to ending the battle with the Mutes. But then a lone flier was hauled into one of its underground bunkers - a man whose very existence was a challenge to the all-pervading wisdom of the First Family. A man whose destiny would determine the future of both the Federation and the Mutes." Book 3. Iron Master - 1987 first printing, ISBN 0722185189 - "The year: 2990. The centuries-old conflict between the hi-tech underground world of the Trackers and the primitive, surface-dwelling Mutes continues with unabated ferocity. Steve Brickman, a Tracker wingman whose heart and mind is torn between the two cultures, embarks upon his most dangerous mission yet: the rescue of Cadillac and Clearwater, two gifted Plainfolk Mutes held captive by the mysterious Iron Masters. It is a nightmare journey into the unknown but, once again, a shadowy presence guides Steve's footsteps and endows him with superhuman speed and strength in moments of mortal danger." Book 4. Blood River - 1990 reprint, ISBN 0747400008 - "On the snow-swept overground, Steve, Cadillac and Clearwater meet with triumph and disaster as they try to evade the clutches of both the Iron Masters and the First Family. The samurai of Ne-Issan prove to be tenacious adversaries and the rulers of the Federation have no intention of loosening their grip on Steve Brickman. For he and his friends are valuable pawns in a game which, if lost, could spell the end of the First Family's dream of reconquering the blue-sky world. Book 5. Death-Bringer - 1989 first printing, ISBN 0747400016 - "With Clearwater now safely in their hands, the Federation hatches a plan to capture Cadillac and Mr Snow and annihilate the Clan McCall: a plan which forces Steve to continue his double role as loyal agent of the Federation and blood-brother of the Mutes. The First Family is hell-bent on exacting retribution for past defeats but the twice-bloodied House of Yama-Shita is also thirsting for vengeance. Both parties blindly pursue their own ends unaware that the outcome is governed not by force of arms but by the irrevocable power of prophecy." Interiors - two volumes with light browning to pages and one with very light browning to pages, volume 1 has a very small foxing mark at top edge of 5 page leaves, volume 5 has a few tiny or small corner creases to pages, otherwise clean and tight with no other ownership marks.

199 pp, 8vo (8 3/4" H). "Between 1770 and 1870 Britain underwent a series of revolutions: agricultural, industrial, political and social. The whole country and the whole population, whether urban or rural, were affected to some extent by the far-reaching changes of this period and their legacy still has its influence in Britain today. This book is an enlightened selection of extracts from contemporary writings (including Anthony Trollope's novels and Royal Commission Reports as well as letters and diaries) charting the changing attitudes, policies and achievements of this important century in the growth of our modern industrial society. There are sections devoted to rural life, urban and industrial life, changes in transport, social policies and religious questions. John Ward, who is Professor of Modern History at the University of Strathclyde, has compiled a scholarly, and entertaining, picture of social life in Britain during a time of social change which will be of value to anyone with a personal or professional interest in the period." Subjects covered include: Free trade; Class conflicts; High society; The Army; Rural Poor; Landownership, Turnpikes; Canals; Sunday trains; Manchester; Leeds; Birmingham; Bardford; Trade unionism; Poor Law; Factory reform; Public health; Education; Life in the Mines; Religion; etc. Some random text highlited in yellow - up to page 41, slight wrinkling at bottom of spine.
