Summary

A pictorial history of the many producers of industrial steam locomotives in Great Britain, from the early nineteenth century to the mid-twentieth century. 
 
The first steam locomotives used on any British railway worked in industry. 
 
The use of new and second hand former main line locomotives was once a widespread aspect of the railways of Britain. 
 
This volume covers many of the once numerous manufacturers who constructed steam locomotives for industry and contractors from the nineteenth to the mid-twentieth centuries. 
 
David Mather has spent many years researching and collecting photographs across Britain, of most of the different locomotive types that once worked in industry. 
 
This book is designed to be both a record of these various manufacturers and a useful guide to those researching and modelling industrial steam.

    Prohibition - A Very Short...

    Americans have always been a hard-drinking people, but from 1920 to 1933 the country went dry. After decades of pressure from rural Protestants such as the hatchet-wielding Carry A. Nation and organizations such as the Women's Christian Temperance Union and Anti-Saloon League, the states ratified the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution. Bolstered by the Volstead Act, this amendment made Prohibition law: alcohol could no longer be produced, imported, transported, or sold. 
    This bizarre episode is often humorously recalled, frequently satirized, and usually condemned. The more interesting questions, however, are how and why Prohibition came about, how Prohibition worked (and failed to work), and how Prohibition gave way to strict governmental regulation of alcohol. This audiobook answers these questions, presenting a brief and elegant overview of the Prohibition era and its legacy. 
    With his unparalleled expertise regarding American drinking patterns, W. J. Rorabaugh provides an accessible synthesis of one of the most important topics in US history, a topic that remains relevant today amidst rising concerns over binge-drinking and alcohol culture on college campuses.

    This is a 2-book combo, which has the following titles: 
    Book 1: Existentialism is a basic terminology concept for theorists that think of the nature of the human condition as a fundamental essence of philosophical issues and who also share the view that this problem is best resolved through ontology. This very broad definition will be clarified by going over seven crucial themes that existentialist thinkers address. Those thinkers considered existentialists are mainly from the continent of Europe, and date from the 19th and 20th centuries. Outside philosophy, the existentialist movement is probably the most popular philosophical movement, and at least two of its members are among the most well-known philosophical characters and widely read philosophical authors. 
    In today’s guide, we’ll discuss the nature of existentialism and nihilism, two co-existing philosophies that have embraced by many. Nietzsche and Kierkegaard play a major role in these movements, so their works will be quoted and explained. 
    Book 2: In this book, you will learn more about the lives and theories of prominent existential philosophers and theorists, such as Kierkegaard, Nietzsche, Heidegger, Sartre, and others. These thinkers paved the way for the entire existentialist movement, as well as nihilism, and some great new ideas that had never been explored in that much depth before. 
    Become familiar with these brilliant minds and their theories now.

    One Day University presents a series of audio lectures recorded in real-time from some of the top minds in the United States. Given by award-winning professors and experts in their field, these recorded lectures dive deep into the worlds of religion, government, literature, and social justice. The rise and fall of ancient Rome is one of the greatest stories in the history of the world. From a group of settlements huddled along the Tiber in Italy, Rome rose to conquer much of the Mediterranean world and Europe. At the height of the Roman Empire, one in every five people in the world lived within its territory. For Americans, Rome's unlikely ascent, spectacular ambitions, and gruesome decline have provided endless fuel for our national self-examination. Is the United States an empire? Are empires good or bad? What makes great civilizations decline and fall, and how can America avoid that fate? This talk will explore the great American question "Are We Rome?" and show why this ancient empire continues to fascinate our very modern nation. This audio lecture includes a supplemental PDF.
