The episcopacy in American Methodism by James E Kirby( Book )

6 editions published in 2000 in English and held by 150 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The thesis explored and developed in this book is that the episcopacy was the binding and cohesive power that joined and kept the Methodist connection together, especially during its early period of rapid expansion. One question that needs far more consideration by students of Methodist history is why the various parts of the movement held together. Kirby's thesis is that it was because of the episcopal office as exercised by Francis Asbury. The volume is primarily about the Methodist Episcopal Church and the Methodist Episcopal Church, South, although it acknowledges other relevant movements in Methodist history in America

The national defense stockpile : an organizational perspective by Robert A Batchelor( )

2 editions published in 1985 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The United States is dependent on foreign sources for many strategic and critical materials vital to its survival and national security. To counter the affects of a disruption in the supply of these materials, the US maintains a National Defense Stockpile (NDS) made up of over a hundred separate depots located in various parts of the country. The management and policy formulation of various aspects of the NDS are distributed across a wide spectrum of agencies in the Executive and Legislative Branches. These organizations along with associated legislation are examined for their impact on the policy-formulation process. This thesis also reviews organizations outside the government that affect stockpile policy. General and specific recommendations on proposed management alternatives are presented at the end of the study. Keywords: National defense stockpile; Stockpile management; Stockpile policy; Strategic materials; Critical materials
