Whitehead, John S.
As late as mid-1941 the two territories of Alaska and Hawaii were little known by most Americans. Alaska was seen as a frozen wasteland and Hawaii, an exotic outpost in the mid-Pacific with a multi-racial, particularly Asian, population. The bombing of Pearl Harbor in late 1941 and the capture of two Aleutian Islands in 1942 made the two territories central theatres of World War II. Thousands of Americans came to know Alaska and Hawaii as never before. Once the war ended both territories hoped that statehood would be their reward for such loyal wartime service. Their strategic locations pointed to an increased national involvement in the Pacific and Asia. The 49th and 50th states would eventually be admitted, but it took thirteen years, from 1946 to 1959, to do it. The long delay was caused by many of the events of the Cold War. Both territories became enmeshed in the national politics of anti-communism, radical labour movements, and Arctic policy to resist a Soviet air attack across the polar North. A cadre of statehood supporters emerged to make their case to the nation, including the young Daniel Inouye of Hawaii and Ted Stevens of Alaska, both of whom would become two of the most powerful senators in Congress.

Carmichael, Al
Slight scratch on front board otherwise New. Friends and fans have repeatedly asked Al 'Hoagy' Carmichael to put his life and experiences in professional football, Hollywood, and the Marines in writing. Like a lot of people during the 1930s his family struggled. That struggle only became greater when his father, the main breadwinner of the family, died when Carmichael was a teenager. From those humble beginnings, Carmichael went on to attend a prestigious private university, build successful careers in professional football and motion pictures, and provide for his family in a way his parents couldn't have dreamed. This autobiography is a nostalgic and humorous journey through Carmichael's life and two careers. This story will take readers behind the scenes during the glory years of professional football and the movie and television industry. 399pp.

Edited By Butler,Francis
The British Institute of Human Rights has long argued the case for incorporation of the European Convention of Human Rights into UK law. But how does the Human Rights Act achieve this and what changes will it make to the legal, social and political landscape? This book analyzes the historical and political imperatives behind evolving human rights legislation and provides a detailed examination of the interpretative record of the judiciary so far. The mechanics of implementation of the Act are explored in detail: who has rights, who has responsibilities and how these are enforced. There is in-depth analysis of three specific areas affected by the new legislation: criminal justice, equality and employment, and disputes within families. In each case, the potential in the Human Rights Act, assisted by Strasbourg decisions and other international jurisprudence, is tested against the prevailing position under domestic law. Finally, there is reflection on the UK's other international human rights commitments and scrutiny of governmental compliance with them. With contributions from leading human rights lawyers, jurists and thinkers, this book deconstructs the Human Rights Act and explains its meaning and significance.260pp.
