Lord Hideyoshi, the regent of Japan at the time, took the first step toward the control of firearms. It was a very small step, and it was not taken simply to protect feudal lords from being shot at by peasants but to get all weapons out of the hands of civilians. He said nothing about arms control. Instead, he announced that he was going to build a statue of Buddha that would make all existing statues look like midgets. It would be so enormous (the figure was about twice the scale of the Statue of Liberty), that many tons of iron would be needed just for the braces and bolts. Still more was required to erect the accompanying temple, which was to cover a piece of ground something over an eighth of a mile square. All farmers, ji-samurai, and monks were invited to contribute their swords and guns to the cause. They were, in fact, required to. -- from publisher description
A child's delight by Noel Perrin( Book )

9 editions published between 1997 and 2003 in English and Undetermined and held by 653 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Limiting his scope to those works already overlooked or in danger of slipping from view, Perrin leads us through a wide spectrum of fiction, ranging from stories for the very youngest listeners to nuanced novels for the adolescent reader. There is something here for every child: dolls and their houses; animals of varied talents and personalities; travels through time and space; romances promised, sometimes failed, sometimes realized; castles and battling warriors; magic of familiar as well as alien worlds; historical bits woven into textured stories. Richard Adams, Leslie Brooke, Arthur Conan Doyle, Wanda Gag, Rumer Godden, Anne Lindbergh, Hugh Lofting, Jean Merrill, Ernest Thompson Seton, Margery Sharp, Dodie Smith, and others know what if feels like to be a kid in an adult world. As does Noel Perrin - and so will the readers of A Child's Delight."--Jacket

Three farms : making milk, meat and money from the American soil by Mark Kramer( Book )

1 edition published in 1987 in English and held by 169 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Three Farms is about the people who farm the American soil - and about the complex world of money and technology that they now inhabit. For many readers, the word Farm calls to mind tranquil Currier and Ives scenes, and indeed most of our crops still grow on family farms. Yet agriculture is changing fast, and entrepreneurial control of our food supply is rapidly shifting out of the hands of small farmers and into the hands of those wise in the ways of high finance and national marketing. By following the lives of individual farmers Mark Kramer captures a complicated system in motion, and helps the reader make sense of what may become the most vital of all political questions: where will your next meal come from?
