A Changing of the Guard by Randall Bennett Woods Summary

Between 1941 and 1946, in response to the devastation caused by World War II, memories of the Great Depression, and the prospect of Soviet expansion, a group of politicians, diplomats, and economists in the United States and Great Britain sought to repair the ruined economies of of Europe and secure economic prosperity for America. Their program, which became known as multilateralism, called for reduced quotas on imports, lowered tariffs, the abandonment of currency exchange controls, and economic decision making by international bodies. Randall Woods explores this attempt to create an interdependent world economy and sets it against the broader political and strategic backdrop of the period. In the United States, multilateralism attracted New Deal liberals because it proposed to help not only the established economic interests but traditionally disadvantaged groups such as farmers and industrial workers as well. Moderate socialists in Britain also lent their support to a liberalized trading system, as did many conservatives on both sides of the Atlantic, believing that the program would preserve some degree of free enterprise in the international economy. Unfortunately for its disciples, Woods argues, multilateralism was so modified by the forces of isolationism and economic nationalism_and by bureaucratic politics in the United States_that it failed to achieve its economic and strategic goals. The international economy that emerged after World War II was not an equitable partnership and merely finalized the fifty-year process by which the United States supplanted Great Britain as the arbiter of Western Capitalism. In the end, modified multilateralism hampered rather than facilitated the free flow of goods and capital, and it did little to promote social democracy.

The Guard by James Slaton Summary

With rising crime rates and frequent terrorist attacks, the government abolishes states' rights and creates a national police force. Without the bureaucratic red tape of the now eliminated state and local law enforcement agencies, and under the iron hand of a corrupt federal police force, the crime rate drops dramatically. At first, the citizens are pleased with the changes in spite of losing some of their civil liberties. Eventually, dissention and unrest develops among the more liberal minded, but the dissenters are singled out and banished from government in an effort to stop the rebellion. Jack and Nolan Treece must now try to save what's left of American freedom. Thus begins a struggle between two factions that draws the Treece brothers deeper into the realm of THE GUARD.

After arriving in Michael's hometown of Front Royal, Virginia, Jaime soon meets Michael's sister, M Forester. M believes her brother has mysteriously disappeared and may be in trouble. Since Jaime hasn't heard from Michael in months, he's inclined to think it's just one of his friend's practical jokes.

The Guard of the Tree of Life, a Discourse on the Sacraments by Samuel Bolton Summary

This rare work by Bolton is what he calls a sacramental discourse on sanctifying God’s name in the coming to and participation in (particularly) of the Lord’s Supper; though his exposition is applicable to any of God’s ordinances. From Leviticus 10:3, Bolton explains three key doctrines: 1. That they who have anything to do with any ordinance of God, draw near to God. 2. That they who draw near to God in any ordinance, must sanctify God in it. 3. That if we do not sanctify God in an ordinance, he will be sanctified on us. Bolton makes application of how faith works, how repentance works and how to have a holy reverence of God and his ordinances. He shows there is obedience in being fruitful in attending God’s ordinances, and that the Christian should labor to see God-glorifying fruit through the work of Jesus Christ and the power of the Spirit. This is not a scan or facsimile, has been updated in modern English for easy reading and has an active table of contents for electronic versions.
