Excerpt from A Handbook of Vancouver Island HE greatest of the visible resources of Vancouver Island is its timber. Its forests are among the finest in the world in respect to the size, stand and economic value of the several varieties of trees. Sometimes the assertion is made that they hold the first place, but it is not necessary to employ in respect to them language that might seem to savour of exaggeration. Generally speaking the whole land surface below the snow-line and excepting the relatively small areas which have been cleared for cultivation, is clad with trees of more or less, but always of considerable commercial value. The chief woods are; Douglas Fir, often referred to as Oregon Pine from the fact that it first became known to the timber trade through exports from the State of Oregon. It is the chief of all the woods of the Pacific Coast Of North America. Its habitat extends from Mexico on the south to the northern boundary Of British Columbia on the north, or over a range of square miles. It is unknown east of the Rocky Mountains; Western Red Cedar, Western Hemlock and Silver Spruce. All these are giant timbers. In addition there are various species of Pines, and Balsam Firs, well-adapted and used for commercial purposes, the latter being employed in the manu facture Of pulp. Maples and Alde'rs grow to a considerable size, but though useful for certain purposes do not form as yet a part Of the commercial output of the mills. The damage done by fire to the Island forests has been relatively small owing to the high general average precipitation, and the density Of the foliage which retards evaporation. For this reason and with a well-devised system of conservation and re-forestation, there is no reason why the Vancouver Island forests may not continue forever, to be a source of great wealth, giving employment to thousands of men and furnishing cargoes for an important mercantile marine. It is quite true that the larger trees represent in most cases centuries of growth, and therefore their restoration, once they have been cut down is impossible; but successive crops of timber may be cut on and on indefinitely. When the forest has been removed from arable land, it is doubtless more profit able to the community that the area shonld be prepared for cultivation than that it should be re-forested. But when every allowance has been made for tracts of this character, there remain millions of acres which ought to be maintained as forest reserves and be safeguarded by a wise system of forestry. It is difficult to attempt to make even a rough approximation of the timber now standing on Vancouver Island, but it is perhaps within the mark to say that it is equal to 120, 000, 000, 000 super ficial feet, board measure.

During the early twentieth century, nearly 200 anti-lynching proposals were introduced in the United States Congress. Getting Away with Murder argues that constitutional defenses for these proposals were merely excuses for Southern Democrats’ racist attitudes toward black Americans and for giving private citizens a license to murder.

The goal of The Oxford Handbook of African American Language is to provide readers with a wide range of analyses of both traditional and contemporary work on language use in African American communities in a broad collective. The Handbook offers a survey of language and its uses in African American communities from a wide range of contexts organized into seven sections: Origins and Historical Perspectives; Lects and Variation; Structure and Description; Child Language Acquisition and Development; Education; Language in Society; and Language and Identity. It is a handbook of research on African American Language (AAL) and, as such, provides a variety of scholarly perspectives that may not align with each other -- as is indicative of most scholarly research. The chapters in this book "interact" with one another as contributors frequently refer the reader to further elaboration on and references to related issues and connect their own research to related topics in other chapters within their own sections and the handbook more generally to create dialogue about AAL, thus affirming the need for collaborative thinking about the issues in AAL research. Though the Handbook does not and cannot include every area of research, it is meant to provide suggestions for future work on lesser-studied areas (e.g., variation/heterogeneity in regional, social, and ethnic communities) by highlighting a need for collaborative perspectives and innovative thinking while reasserting the need for better research and communication in areas thought to be resolved.

The Oxford Handbook of Philosophy and Race provides up-to-date explanation and analyses by leading scholars of contemporary issues in African American philosophy and philosophy of race. These original essays encompass the major topics and approaches in this emerging philosophical subfield that supports demographic inclusion and diversity while at the same time strengthening the conceptual arsenal of social and political philosophy. Over the course of the volume's ten topic-based sections, ideas about race held by Locke, Hume, Kant, Hegel, and Nietzsche are supplemented by suppressed thought from the African diaspora, early twentieth-century African American perspectives and Native-, Asian-, and Latin-, American views. The contributors bring philosophical analysis to bear on the status of racial divisions as categories of humanity in the biological sciences, as well as within contemporary criticism and conceptual analysis. Essays present the special applications of American philosophy and continental philosophy to ideas of race as methodological alternatives to more analytic approaches. As a collection of analyses and assessments of 'race' in the real world, the volume pays trenchant and relevant attention to historical and contemporary racism and what it means to say that 'race' and racial identities are socially constructed. The essays analyze contemporary social issues including the importance of racial difference and identity in education, public health, medicine, IQ and other standardized tests, and sports. Additionally, the essays consider the societal limitations and structures provided by public policy and law. As a critical theory, the volume compares the study of race to feminism. Historical and contemporary, academic and popular, racisms pertaining to male and female gender receive special consideration throughout the volume. While this comprehensive collection may have the effect of a textbook, each of the original essays is a fresh and authentic development of important present thought.

Excerpt from The American Gas Engineer and Superintendents' Hand Book: Consisting of Rules, Reference Tables and Original Matter Pertaining to the Manufacture, Manipulation and Distribution of Illuminating Gas If this book should fail to fill the said void it will be at least an attempt in that direction, which may be fully accomplished in a future edition. There is no good reason why there should not be an American Hand Book for gas engineers and others engaged or interested in the manufacture of gas. Our coinage, weights and measures are different from those of other countries, and we differ greatly in many other things. Even our English relatives, speaking the same language, have a different coinage, and many differences in their weights and measures. Much valuable matter, the fruit of experiments and study by men eminent in the profession, is practically lost, when published in the technical journals, and when wanted, cannot readily be found.
