The approach this book adopts is designed to help students with little or no supervision: each new topic is simply explained and illustrated by figures, and exercises are set on successive maps. If students are unable to complete a problem, they can read on to obtain more specific instructions on how theory may be used to solve the problem in question. -name on 1st p  Very Good - Good/None Issued

Executioner’s Current
Moran, Richard
Alfred a Knopf NY 2002 
 Hardcover The incredible story of how the electric chair developed - not out of the desire for a more humane method of execution, but through the efforts of one 19th-century electric company to discredit the other! The battle between Edison's DC current and Westinghouse's AC system led to Edison persuading the state of New York to use the AC current to discredit Westinghouse. The first execution in the chair of William Kemler took place in August 1890 and was horribly botched. The story of the tug-of-war and the disturbing questions it raised.  Excellent/Excellent
