In the end, all he really wants is her happiness. When the ghost of Lindsay's father visits and offers her exactly what she wants, will she still be so eager to rid herself of her husband?

The account relates Griffey’s decision to venture into the baseball business, documenting his time as a scout, coach, and manager along with his accomplishments as a father, raising two other major league ballplayers: Craig, who played briefly for the Seattle Mariners, and future Hall of Famer Ken Griffey Jr. Capturing the subject’s time with the Big Red Machine, this record details his days playing alongside Johnny Bench, Joe Morgan, and Pete Rose, highlighting the Reds' two consecutive world championships in 1975 and 1976. Finally, the ultimate thrill of Griffey’s career is featured: playing in the same outfield in 1990 with his son, Ken Griffey Jr., during the game where they hit back-to-back home runs—the only father-son combination to do so in the history of Major League Baseball. Filled with amusing anecdotes and behind-the-scenes glimpses of what it’s like when baseball really does run in the family, this is a sports memoir unlike any other.

Follows three months in the lives of a Trident nuclear submarine crew, discussing the U.S. Navy's ongoing vigils in the event of nuclear war while describing the crew's battle tactics, secret operations, and fail-safe mechanisms. Reprint.
The Trident nuclear sub is the most complex war machine the U.S. Navy has ever produced, a $1.8 billion marvel crammed with more modern mil. tech. than any other vessel in the world. It can sail deep beneath the ocean silently for months, impossible to detect by the enemy. The 24 ballistic missiles on board just one of these subs have enough nuclear warheads to unleash twice the explosive energy detonated by all the conventional weapons in WW2. Now, Waller takes you on a tension-packed, 3-month patrol deep in the Atlantic Ocean and inside one of these Tridents. He reveals the top-secret procedures for starting WW3 -- the secret codes, the elaborate fail-safe mechanisms, the highly classified battle tactics for nuclear combat. B & W photos.
In 1905, representatives from dozens of radical labor groups came together in Chicago to form One Big Union—the Industrial Workers of the World (IWW), known as the Wobblies.

In addition to the 250+ songs, writings are included from Archie Green, Franklin Rosemont, David Roediger, Salvatore Salerno, Judy Branfman, Richard Brazier, James Connell, Carlos Cortez, Bill Friedland, Virginia Martin, Harry McClintock, Fred Thompson, Adam Machado, and many more.

In The Big Red Machine, astute Liberal observer Stephen Clarkson tells the story of the Liberal Party's performance in the last nine elections, providing essential historical context for each and offering incisive, behind-the-scenes detail about how the party has planned, changed, and executed its successful electoral strategies. Arguing that the Liberal Party has opportunistically straddled the political centre since Sir John A. Macdonald -- leaning left or moving right and as circumstances required -- Clarkson also shows that the party's grip on power is becoming increasingly uncertain, having lost its appeal not just in the West, but now in Qu�bec. Its campaigns now reflect the splintering of the party system and the integration of Canada into the global economy.
