My Years In Triumph
In 1974, I bought my first piece of America for $7,000. I put $700 down and never looked back . I had big plans. Think big, the rest is just a waste of time. There is nothing a man can't do with a trusty dog by his side. This book is a "Look Back" a look back at what happened on an old industrial site up the East Fork of The Wood River, the foundation of the New Sink Float Mill. I was going to clean the mine water and have gardens and a green house, Oh foolish youth, then life happened.
Sixty Years Of Christian Science
This latest work from Mr. Martin's pen is unique among the books devoted to discussion of Christian Science. The fundamental ethical principles required of one who essays exposition and criticism of a movement which he does not represent are impartiality, sincerity, freedom of thought and expression, and these are characteristic both of Mr. Martin's "Appreciation" and his "Critique."
In the introductory chapter the reader's attention is drawn to the distinction between tolerance and appreciation. "Tolerance," Mr. Martin says, "is the willing consent to let other people hold opinions different from one's own; appreciation is eagerness to do full justice to those opinions. It is the spirit which grants to Christian Science a respectful hearing, persuaded that its thesis contains some measure of truth, and the more unpromising its appearance, the more diligent the search for it must be. Instead of rudely relegating the movement to the limbo of the ridiculous and the irrational, the spirit of appreciation endeavors patiently to determine what life-giving element it contains, what needs it satisfies, what wants it supplies" (pp. 8, 9).
The Critique throughout is constructive, even to the detail of Mrs. Eddy's mode of construing names and phrases from the Bible, Mr. Martin frankly admitting that all are at liberty to interpret the contents of the Bible in any way they choose; "but," he adds, "no one has a right to make the author responsible for the given interpretation. Good doctrinal material, even a Science of Health, may be extracted from the Scriptures, but this is not to be ascribed to the original intention of the author" (p. 19).
Mr. Martin justly pleads for conscience and reason in this matter of interpretation in order that we shall "see things as they are and not attribute to Bible authors ideas which arc foreign to their thought, their purpose and to the age in which they lived."
In his approach to the efficacy of Christian Science as a healing agency Mr. Martin stresses the important fact that, while all manner of cures have been attributed to Christian Science, no one as yet knows "just what it is that heals," because precisely the same cures have been effected by five different schools of drugless healing, each school accounting for the particular cure according to its own theory; consequently, no one can say what caused the cure.
All loyal students of Christian Science arc indebted to Mr. Martin for absolving Mrs. Eddy from the stigma, still cast upon her by some, of plagiarizing the teachings of P. P. Quimby. It is true that he benefited her greatly and his work served a good purpose, but she transcended his theory of healing in that she "moved forward from a purely mental system to what she called Divine Science, albeit she used words and terms that were to be found in the writings of Quimby and others" (p. 37).
Most fitting is Mr. Martin's tribute to the foundress of Christian Science for her indefatigable labor in the cause of clean journalism, as evidenced by the Christian Science Monitor, an international newspaper, whose mission is "to injure no man and to please all mankind."
As Mr. Martin has deservedly praised Mrs. Eddy for the refining influence she has exerted upon unnumbered hosts of grateful people, so he, in turn, deserves the gratitude of all who read his book in the spirit in which it is written.

50 Years Progress In Crystal Growth
There is no question that the field of solid state electronics, which essentially began with work at Bell laboratories just after World War II, has had a profound impact on today's Society. What is not nearly so widely known is that advances in the art and science of crystal growth underpin this technology. Single crystals, once valued only for their beauty, are now found, in one form or another in most electronic, optoelectronic and numerous optical devices. These devices, in turn, have permeated almost every home and village throughout the world. In fact it is hard to imagine what our electronics industry, much less our entire civilization, would have been like if crystal growth scientists and engineers were unable to produce the large, defect free crystals required by device designers.
This book brings together two sets of related articles describing advances made in crystal growth science and technology since World War II. One set is from the proceedings of a Symposium held in August 2002 to celebrate 50 years of progress in the field of crystal growth. The second contains articles previously published in the newsletter of the American Association for Crystal Growth in a series called "Milestones in Crystal Growth."
The first section of this book contains several articles which describe some of the early history of crystal growth prior to the electronics revolution, and upon which modern crystal growth science and technology is based. This is followed by a special article by Prof. Sunagawa which provides some insight into how the successful Japanese crystal growth industry developed. The next section deals with crystal growth fundamentals including concepts of solute distribution, interface kinetics, constitutional supercooling, morphological stability and the growth of dendrites. The following section describes the growth of crystals from melts and solutions, while the final part involves thin film growth by MBE and OMVPE.
These articles were written by some of the most famous theorists and crystal growers working in the field. They will provide future research workers with valuable insight into how these pioneering discoveries were made, and show how their own research and future devices will be based upon these developments.

Kitty's New Doll
KITTY AND HER mother go to the toy store for her very first doll. Which one does Kitty choose? Not the doll that walks and talks. Kitty chooses a rag doll that can't do anything, not even sleep. " But she can pretend cry and pretend sleep . . . and she can say anything I want her to say, " says Kitty. And as she walks home with her new doll, she holds it close and pretends that it says, " I love you."
50 Years A Keynesian And Other Essays
In the title essay of this classic collection, the author reviews retrospectively his developing ideas on theory and policy since he first encountered Keynes' writings in 1950. The essays in Section One are concerned with Keynes now, specifically the coming back into favor of his most fundamental ideas. Sections Two and Three contain intellectual biographies and shorter tributes to economists, most of whom were friends and colleagues of the author. Section Four covers three review articles of the Feiwell volumes on Joan Robinson, 50 years of NBE, and Nicholas Kaldor's last book. Section Five is a survey of Post-Keynesian thought; Section Six, General Essays, starts with a paper written in 1980 as a passionate reaction to the world-wide rise of monetarism and new classical macroeconomics theories and policies and closes with an essay on the Cambridge contribution to economics.
