Did you know that the United States of America began life as a confederacy, and that it was, in fact, officially called "the Confederacy" between 1781 and 1789? Did you know that for those eight years the U.S. technically operated as, and was also nicknamed, "The Confederate States of America," and that because of this our first constitution was named "The Articles of Confederation"?
Did you know that the conservative South fought the liberal North, not to "preserve slavery," as has been falsely taught, but to preserve the original limited confederate government of the Founding Fathers and the conservative ideals embedded in our first constitution, the Articles of Confederation? And did you know that it was for these reasons that in 1861 the seceding Southern states called themselves "The Confederate States of America"?
In this brief but educational book, The Articles of Confederation Explained: A Clause-by-Clause Study of America's First Constitution, award-winning author and historian Colonel Lochlainn Seabrook explores these topics and more in an in-depth look at the thirteen Articles of Confederation, first formulated in 1777. The complete and original text of each article is provided, along with a clear and simple explanation describing its meaning and intended purpose. Also included in this wonderfully illustrated little work is a list of the ten presidents of the U.S. Confederacy, who served, according to specifications laid out in Article Nine, between the years 1779 and 1789.
With this book, the companion to Colonel Seabrook's bestselling title, The Constitution of the Confederate States of America Explained, you will gain new insight into some of the fascinating facts that are left out of our history books. Discover for yourself why some of America's greatest thinkers, such as the author's cousin Patrick Henry, embraced the Articles of Confederation, and argued against replacing them with the U.S. Constitution and a bigger more powerful central government.
Civil War scholar Lochlainn Seabrook, a descendant of the families of Alexander H. Stephens and John S. Mosby, is the most prolific and popular pro-South writer in the world today. Known as the "new Shelby Foote," he is a recipient of the prestigious Jefferson Davis Historical Gold Medal and the author of over 50 books that have introduced hundreds of thousands to the truth about the War for Southern Independence. A seventh-generation Kentuckian of Appalachian heritage and the sixth great-grandson of the Earl of Oxford, Colonel Seabrook has a forty-year background in American and Southern history, and is the author of the international blockbuster Everything You Were Taught About the Civil War is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!
His other titles include: The Great Yankee Coverup: What the North Doesn't Want You to Know About Lincoln's War; Confederacy 101: Amazing Facts You Never Knew About America's Oldest Political Tradition; Confederate Flag Facts: What Every American Should Know About Dixie's Southern Cross; Women in Gray: A Tribute to the Ladies Who Supported the Southern Confederacy; Everything You Were Taught About American Slavery is Wrong, Ask a Southerner!; A Rebel Born: A Defense of Nathan Bedford Forrest; Abraham Lincoln: The Southern View; Give This Book to a Yankee: A Southern Guide to the Civil War for Northerners; and Honest Jeff and Dishonest Abe: A Southern Children's Guide to the Civil War.

Long proven as an analytical tool of uncommon accuracy and utility, particle-induced X-ray emission has enjoyed a solid, if narrow, reputation in the area of chemical analysis. Capable of detecting elemental concentrations down to parts per million, PIXE is now a standard component of the analytical arsenal of the nuclear physics laboratory. Yet in wider avenues of chemical research, PIXE technology is still relatively new and untested. <p>An inside look at the nuts and bolts of PIXE from specialists who've refined the technique in biomedicine, atmospheric science, geology, and art and archaeology, this comprehensive introduction to PIXE reveals its conceptual foundation and unique methodology as well as its, as yet, enormous untapped potential as a primary analytical tool. Particle-Induced X-Ray Emission Spectrometry (PIXE) offers professionals and students a practical, user-based look at the many facets and current uses of PIXE for multielemental analysis while providing a stimulus for creative, insightful investigation. <p>Beginning with a brief history of PIXE, the book then introduces the reader to the conceptual basics central to understanding and using PIXE. It details the hardware and methodology that make up PIXE, examining its instrumentation, characteristics of x-ray spectroscopy, standardization of quantitative analysis, the accuracy of PIXE analysis, and its limits of detection. The technique of focusing proton beams to micron dimensions with the nuclear microprobe is thoroughly detailed, with practical advice on what pitfalls to avoid, and clear illustrations of its present uses in biomedicine, materials science, archaeology, and earth science. <p>The following chapters form a comprehensive catalog of the cutting-edge uses of PIXE in a host of fields, shedding light on the technical specifics unique to each area of research as well as the intrinsic versatility of PIXE. A discussion of biological and medical applications includes a look at sample preparation, micro- and macro-PIXE, the use of PIXE with other methods, and data evaluation. PIXE's role in the compositional analysis of atmospheric aerosols is described, including a look at PIXE's future impact on global climate research. A look at PIXE's applications in the earth sciences contrasts the analysis of bulk material with grains and crystallites and highlights PIXE's practical uses in key areas of geologic research. PIXE's role in art and archaeology includes a fascinating and detailed exposition of its important role in the analysis of gem stones, pottery, paper-like materials, and pigments and paintings. <p>Concluding with a detailed comparative analysis of PIXE with other current analytical methods, the book then provides a fascinating glimpse into the future prospects of PIXE. A must reference for the professional and novice in search of the basic hardware and methods behind the current state of the science, Particle-Induced X-Ray Emission Spectrometry (PIXE) is a premier guide to exploring the analytical possibilities open to this unique technology. <p>The authoritative handbook to exploiting the full power and versatility of PIXE— now and in the next century <p>Respected for its practical accuracy and detection range of parts per million, particle-induced X-ray emission has enjoyed a secure place in the analytical arsenal of the nuclear physics laboratory. Yet, its undeniable analytical potential in other areas of science has scarcely been tapped. This unique reference, from PIXE specialists in biomedicine, atmospheric science, earth science, and art and archaeology, features a user-based look at PIXE's conceptual basics and methodology, with a view toward new and creative analytical work. <p>Touching on every facet of PIXE technology, from basic instrumentation, specimens, the characteristics of X-ray spectroscopy, standardization of quantitative analysis, to the accuracy of PIXE analysis and its limits of detection, the book offers an unprecedented look at the newer uses of PIXE in such areas as: <ul><li>Applications of macro- and micro-PIXE in medicine, zoology, and botany <li>Analysis of atmospheric aerosols <li>Geological and extra-terrestrial material <li>Analysis of gem stones, pottery, glass, and alloys <li>As an exploratory tool for pigments and paintings and "paper-like" materials</ul> <p>Complete with a comparative look contrasting PIXE with more conventional forms of analysis, this important reference is key to grasping the technique's practical specifics and exploiting its full analytical potential.
