The Atlas of North American English provides the first overall view of the pronunciation and vowel systems of the dialects of the U.S. and Canada. The Atlas re-defines the regional dialects of American English on the basis of sound changes active in the 1990s and draws new boundaries reflecting those changes. It is based on a telephone survey of 762 local speakers, representing all the urbanized areas of North America. It has been developed by Bill Labov, one of the leading sociolinguists of the world, together with his colleagues Sharon Ash and Charles Boberg. The Atlas consists of a printed volume accompanied by an interactive CD-ROM. The print and multimedia content is also available online. Combined Edition: Book and Multimedia CD-ROM The book contains 23 chapters that re-define the geographic boundaries of North American dialects and trace the influence of gender, age, education, and city size on the progress of sound change; findings that show a dramatic and increasing divergence of English in North America; 139 four color maps that illustrate the regional distribution of phonological and phonetic variables across the North American continent; 120 four color vowel charts of individual speakers. The multimedia CD-ROM supplements the articles and maps by providing a data base with measurements of more than 100,000 vowels and mean values for 439 speakers; the Plotnik program for mapping each of the individual vowel systems; extended sound samples of all North American dialects; multimedia applications to enhance classroom presentations. Online Version: Book and CD-ROM content plus additional data The online version comprises the contents of the book and the multimedia CD-ROM along with additional data. It presents a wider selection of data, maps, and audio samples that will be recurrently updated; proffers simultaneous access to the information contained in the book and on the multimedia CD-ROM to all users in the university/library network; provides students with easy access to research material for classroom assignments.

They were imperiled in such flicks as The Man from Planet X, The Brain from Planet Arous and Phantom from Space. They fended off The Mummy's Ghost, Robot Monster and The Mole People. And they screamed a lot. They were damsels menaced by often otherworldly monsters and madmen. Twenty heroines recall what it was like to play endangered women in science fiction, horror, film noir and mystery movies from the 1930s to the 1960s.

Shea searches to find her husband while the leader of the United States moves to consolidate his power and shred the Constitution. Yet, both are undermined by the efforts of an ambitious bureaucrat who seeks the throne for herself and intends to send the nation deeper into despotism. Together with a former Congressman, Shea creates a movement to challenge the tyranny of the Administration. Emotions run high as those who create the country’s wealth are the ones drowning in exorbitant taxation, while others are satisfied standing in line for government handouts. Not since 1860 has the country been so polarized. “Secession ... secession now!” they chant. But will it come to that? In this second installment of the Atlas Series, the factions take sides, and when the ultimate decision must be made, chaos reigns. Can war be far behind?
