In their preface editors McMaster and Stone state that the "object of this book is to show the circumstances under which the Federal Constitution was ratified by Pennsylvania. She was the first of the large states to accept the plan that gave the states having a small population an equal representation in the Senate with the others, and her prompt action influenced the result." They note that "had this action been less prompt ... it would in all probability have caused the rejection of the Constitution." Using a wealth of primary documents, including the official proceedings and debates of the Assembly and the Convention, along with essays, squibs (short satirical news items), editorials, letters, speeches, and articles about the debates in Pennsylvania's ratifying convention, McMaster and Stone present both Federalist and Anti-Federalist viewpoints. In addition, they provide brief, noninterpretive editorial comments to give historical context to the discussion and include concise biographical sketches of key Pennsylvania figures during this crucial period of the American founding, such as Benjamin Franklin, Gouverneur Morris, Benjamin Rush, and James Wilson. McMaster and Stone point out that, twenty hours after the Continental Congress had submitted the new Constitution to the states, as a replacement for the Articles of Confederation, the Assembly of Pennsylvania called a convention to debate the proposed Constitution and to ratify or reject it. The passionate debate in favor of and against continued until Washington's oath of office as the first President of the United States

Survey of lava tubes in the former Puna Forest Reserve and on adjacent State of Hawaii lands by Holly McEldowney( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This study was initiated after members of the Puna community brought to the attention of the Historic Preservation Office that major lava tube systems extended from the Pahoa area into at least portions of the former Puna Forest Reserve. They were concerned that planned geothermal exploration and development could damage these lava tubes which they said contained extensive evidence of past Hawaiian use including fortifications, shrines, platforms and burials. Geothermal development is currently being planned by Campbell Estate and True Geothermal Energy Company in the southern portion of the former Reserve which has been designated by the State of Hawaii as one of the three Geothermal Sub-Zones in Puna. To demonstrate these claims, two staff members of the Historic Sites Section were shown examples in a lava tube makai of the Campbell Estate boundary. After reviewing the archaeological and historical reports commissioned for geothermal exploration, it was agreed that if these lava tubes did extend inland and continued to contain archaeological sites or burials then the potential of significant sub-surface sites had not been adequately addressed in the Historic Sites Section review process. Most reports acknowledged the possibility of lava tubes in the area and that they could contain burials, but no tube systems were ever identified or explored during any of the field surveys. These surveys primarily assessed the presence or absence of cultural properties that occur on the surface or as deposits within the soil layer. With the assistance of the Division of Water Resource Management (DWRM), the Historic Sites Section agreed to conduct this survey because those community members who came forward requested that this information be handled by a neutral party. They asked that documentation occur in such a manner that it could be kept as confidential as possible while still providing enough information to protect any sites from damage. The survey had three major aims. The first was to establish whether or not the lava tubes continued into the land now held by Campbell Estate or the Geothermal Sub-Zone. The second was to assess the extent to which any lava tube systems found contained archaeological remains or burials and, if so, to evaluate their general significance. The third was to define, if possible, any patterns in the distribution of the lava tube systems or the archaeological remains within them. Such patterns can allow general predictions to be made about which areas are most likely to have similar tube systems with significant archaeological sites. This is of particular importance in this region where large portions of the former Forest Reserve and the Geothermal Sub-Zone have not been inspected, and conducting extensive surveys is extremely difficult because of dense vegetation, hazardous conditions and poor ground visibility. One of the authors (Stone) has a background in Hawaiian lava tube biology, so we were able to include a preliminary survey of the invertebrate fauna found in these underground ecosystems
