Playing the numbers : gambling in Harlem between the wars by Shane White( Book )

2 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The phrase "Harlem in the 1920s" evokes images of the Harlem Renaissance, or of Marcus Garvey and soapbox orators haranguing crowds about politics and race. Yet the most ubiquitous feature of Harlem life between the world wars was the game of "numbers." Thousands of wagers, usually of a dime or less, would be placed on a daily number derived from U.S. bank statistics. The rewards of "hitting the number," a 600-to-1 payoff, tempted the ordinary men and women of the Black Metropolis with the chimera of the good life. Playing the Numbers tells the story of this illegal form of gambling and the central role it played in the lives of African Americans who flooded into Harlem in the wake of World War I. For a dozen years the "numbers game" was one of America’s rare black-owned businesses, turning over tens of millions of dollars every year. The most successful "bankers" were known as Black Kings and Queens, and they lived royally. Yet the very success of "bankers" like Stephanie St. Clair and Casper Holstein attracted Dutch Schultz, Lucky Luciano, and organized crime to the game. By the late 1930s, most of the profits were being siphoned out of Harlem. Playing the Numbers reveals a unique dimension of African American culture that made not only Harlem but New York City itself the vibrant and energizing metropolis it was. An interactive website allows readers to locate actors and events on Harlem’s streets

Pollution Control in Aqueous Solution by Hydroponic Cultivation of Plants( Book )

2 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The primary objectives of the project were to develop a research base to allow professionals in the Corps of Engineers to utilize plant cultivation methods to alleviate and remediate water pollution problems associated with various activities of the Army. A two-fold approach was used. The first involved the design, construction and implementation of pilot scale studies to assess the abilities of plant species, both aquatic and terrestrial, to remove pollutants from low quality waters, such as stormwater runoff from contaminated sites and wastewater. This experimental approach offers the opportunity to quantitatively evaluate plant growth and biomass distribution including the accumulation of dissolved materials in plant organs such as roots, stems, leaves and flowers. The second approach involved utilization of simulated storm and waste water as a source of nutrients for growing a commercial greenhouse crop, in this case a floricultural crop

Australian studies : a survey by James Walter( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The systematic study of Australian culture and society has been relatively short-term. In this book, attention to the specifics of Australian society is eleborated into general discussions of culture and cultural production that are the fundamental concerns of the numanitites and social sciences. In a series of linked interpretative essays, the book surveys central questions in history, politics, literary and media studies, social history, political economy, gender studies, race relations and cultural studies. It is designed to introduce key issues of current debate, and to provide guides to sources and resources, in each of these areas. It will provide a stimulus and resource in Australian studies to researchers, teachers, students and interested readers generally. The book has been produced by a group of university teachers from disparate discuplinary backgrounds whose common interest is in research into and teaching about Australian culture and society
