Forty-six historic tales of murder and mayhem on a global scale: This book contains true stories, authenticated through the use of both modern and contemporary sources. They range from the year 1337 BCE through 2006 CE, from the United States and Europe to the Mid-east and the Orient. The murderers range from incompetent to highly competent and from despicable to glorious. The victims were prominent politically and, in some cases, financially. Some deserved to die, most did not. All four assassinations of US Presidents are included, as are three attempted Presidential assassinations. Although the stories make interesting reading by themselves, the grouping of them in a single volume gives breadth and allows the reader to understand the scope of the assassination phenomenon, to see trends and to assess their value.

Thirty Years as a Volunteer TreasurerMany small volunteer and non-profit organizations have their own sources of funds, but do not have the resources to employ professional accountants to keep the books.  Usually a volunteer steps in and agrees to do the work.

 Commonly, the organization’s treasurer takes custody of its financial resources, assures that those resources are securely and profitably invested, manages inflows and expenses, deals with and manages obligations to various government entities, and reports to the organization on its financial status and progress.  The organization expects integrity, precision, consistency and reliability in return and judges the treasurer’s performance accordingly.

Becoming a volunteer treasurer can involve a significant learning curve.  Jan Young spent thirty years as treasurer for a small church and experienced it in full.  His book is intended to help both the new and the experienced volunteer treasurer by presenting a primer on the required methods and procedures and by including a number of valuable recommendations on taxes, budgets, audits and more

The US Constitution

The United States Constitution is the most important document ever created in the USA and one of the half-dozen or so most important ever written by humankind.  Its importance is due to the fact that it underpins everything we do, every right and responsibility we have, and every freedom we enjoy.

 Almost all of us know that the Constitution exists.  And almost all of us know a few of its key provisions.  But few of us have a detailed understanding and fewer still have actually read it.  As a result, many of us misunderstand it, or significant portions of it.

 The Constitution is not a difficult document to read.  The original document written in 1780 is only four pages long and although some wording and some spelling is now archaic, it is clear and easily understood.  But with all the amendments, the job of reading the Constitution becomes more time-consuming.

 This book contains a brief history and description of the US Constitution and its Amendments, starting with the original document and proceeding through the Amendments, one at a time, all in chronological order.  It includes discussions of amendments that have passed Congress, but have not become effective for lack of ratification, and some of the more important amendments that have been proposed, but have not been approved by Congress. It concludes with commentaries and highlights of some State Constitutions and with a brief history of the USS Constitution, the oldest naval vessel in the world.  Selected technical terms are explained and a full index is provided.
