The Rising was launched by Irish republicans to end British rule in Ireland and establish an independent Irish Republic while the United Kingdom was heavily engaged in World War I. It was the most significant uprising in Ireland since the rebellion of 1798, and the first armed action of the Irish revolutionary period. Organised by a seven-man Military Council of the Irish Republican Brotherhood, the Rising began on Easter Monday, 24 April 1916, and lasted for six days. Members of the Irish Volunteers — led by schoolmaster and Irish language activist Patrick Pearse, joined by the smaller Irish Citizen Army of James Connolly and 200 women of Cumann na mBan — seized key locations in Dublin and proclaimed an Irish Republic." (Wikipedia) This book released 50 years later, briefly covers the events of the uprising but chiefly concerns itself with the various commemorations honouring the events of Easter 1916

Kenmore, WA Epicenter Press 2002 0970849397 / 9780970849397 First Edition Softcover Near Fine 
Only slight wear to card covers ; A bright, solid book.; Alaska Book Adventures ; 8.96 X 6.08 X 0.54 inches; 192 pages; "The Klondike Stampede caused a transportation boom in the north, where in its thrilling heyday about 250 wooden steamboats operated in the Yukon River drainage of Alaska and the Yukon. The sternwheelers became gold rush icons. But the hardy, pragmatic entrepreneurs who ran the boats were lured by profits, not romance. In 1901, a passenger's fare from St. Michael to Dawson (about 1,800 miles) was $125, and cargo was moved upriver at $100 a ton. Yet it was a tough, risky business. The season was short, good crews were hard to find, and a navigation error could sink or strand an investment worth tens of thousands of dollars--huge sums at the turn of the century. Mechanical problems were occupational hazards. The steamboats consumed enormous amounts of firewood for their boilers. And if a riverboat didn't find a safe berth or drydock before freezeup, it risked being crushed by ice the following spring. Charles W. Adams was an able, smart business college graduate who bought a share of the Lavelle Young in his mid-20s. He became one of the North's great riverboat captains, lived enough adventure in the north to fill several lifetimes, and played a crucial role in the founding of Fairbanks, Alaska. "

Leiden NL Martinus Nijhoff Publishers 2009 9004171126 / 9789004171121 1st Hardcover Near Fine with No dust jacket as issued 
Illustrated boards are clean and bright.; International Relations Studies Series #3; 9.76 X 6.54 X 1.02 inches; 381 pages; "Can the European Union transform Greek-Turkish relations? The contributors to "In the Long Shadow of Europe" examine the ambiguities of Europe's historical role in its Southeastern corner to shed light on the possible paths lying ahead. From their various an-gles, they highlight the paradoxes of a relationship between intimate adversaries, marred by tormented histories, nationalist narratives and bilateral disputes but strengthened by historical familiarity, geographic vicinity, and the imperative for cooperation. And beyond this face a face, the authors show how, as Greece and Turkey developed into independent nation-states in the shadow of Europe, their intertwined trajectories also contributed to defining this same Europe 'at the edges'. Beyond the Greek - Turkish relationship, this book illustrates the considerable challenges the European Union faces as a mediating power both within and outside its borders."
