The genuine victims, of which we know more than one instance in this very neighborhood, are those who have some little property; who find it hard to get along; who, in the fever of competition, lose their heads by florid descriptions of Oklahoma and such like places; and who then become a prey to the schemes and the agents of railroad companies, sink a good portion of their savings in an outward and the rest of their savings in a homeward bound ticket, and land back in the congested centers like plucked chickens or fleeced sheep. There is only one way of starting the unemployedby establishing the Co-operative Commonwealth where the nations machinery of productionland and capitalis owned and operated by and for the people.

    Excerpt: ... : Congressional Quarterly, 1993) 362 pp., index. This book presents a straightforward, annotated chronology of U.S.-Soviet relations from the end of World War II to the end of the Cold War. Instructional Resources 3. May, Elaine Tyler. Homeward Bound : American Families in the Cold War Era (New York: Basic Books, 1988), 284 pp., illustrations, index. May explores the complex historical reasons why Americans chose to live in suburbanized nuclear families and retain traditional gender roles in the two decades following the Second World War. By combining statistical, economic, and psychological studies with cultural analyses of the period's television, film, and popular science, May argues that the new American family order did two things during the Cold War: first, it defused the potentially revolutionary effects of the vast changes wrought in the very nature of work by the Depression, World War II, and the United States' strong post-war economy; and second, it served to allay the anxieties about personal ...

(534) These directions and last minute decisions that change as the enemy surprises them are only truly seen for what they are worth when it is heard as it is happening. Details like these are not normally made aware to anyone outside the battle, thus allowing the reader to have a close view of the inner workings of battles and wars. Along with detailed, epic battle scenes that show war from the front-line point of view, there is also a thorough look at post-war Middle Earth. In the chapters Many Partings and Homeward Bound the Company takes the reverse route of their journey, and the reader gets a sense of what everyone else in Middle Earth was doing while the heroes were fighting for them. There are both physical changes of the land and societal changes within the different towns. Isengard, for example, is taken over by the Ents: All the stone-circle had been thrown down and removed, and the land within was made into a garden filled ...

"It shall go for taxes," he said, "and never tempt me or mine any more!" He opened the window and stood there tearing the tax bill to bits and watching the breeze waft them away, till all were gone. "The spell is broken, the life-long curse is ended!" he said. "Let us go." The baggage wagon had arrived; five minutes later the two friends were mounted upon their luggage in it, and rattling off toward the station, the Colonel endeavoring to sing " Homeward Bound ," a song whose words he knew, but whose tune, as he rendered it, was a trial to auditors. ...
