Large 8vo, brown cloth with black lettering to spine. "'Silent Killers' examines the history and development of the submarine and its role in naval warfare, from the first experiments with submersible craft to the development of the modern nuclear submarine. The development of submarine technology is studied in detail, from wooden to iron to steel hulls, from hand-cranked to nuclear-powered propulsion, from candle light to electricity, from gunpowder 'torpedoes' to nuclear missiles, as are the personalities involved -- among them David Bushnell, Robert Fulton, Wilhelm Bauer, Lodner Phillips, and John Holland. Tales of dives, disastrous and successful, of engineering triumphs and tragedies, and of combat successes and failures are all included in this fascinating and compelling illustrated history." -from the dustjacket.

Pp (6),vii-xvi,(2),3-328. Index. 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. This book examines fourmedical innovations that epitomize the pitfalls of progress: DES, a synthe tic estrogen prescribed to millions of women to prevent miscarriages, whichproduced devastating side effects; the artificial heart; the 1976 swine fl u immunization program; and genetic engineering. Dutton and the contributors trace the human choices that govern medical and scientific innovation andexplore the political, economic, and social factors that influence those c hoices. In the process, they reveal a deep gulf between the priorities of medical innovation and the concerns of the general public. They then proposeconcrete policy changes to help bridge that gulf. Contents : Part I - Over view. 1. Introduction. 2. Where are we and how did we get there? Part II - Four case studies. 3. DES and the elusive goal of drug safety. 4.

This book will help you understand why your boat was designed and built as you see it now. It will explain why your boat has certainhandling characteristics, both positive and negative. Why does my boat roc k so uncontrollably in rough seas? You will soon have the answers and possible solutions to this and hundreds of other questions. The professional designer will learn from the NEW formulas (developed by the author after yearsof research) for finding hull design pressure and speed predictions. Hull thickness and scantling size tables for Glass Fiber, Steel, Aluminum, Wood and Ferro-cement are also included. This information is provided in THIS and NO other design book published today. This book will start the novice designer on their way to the fascinating realm of boat design. Written in terms anyone can understand with formulas, tables, line drawings and illustrations to explain the process of design in great detail. " - from the back cover. Very good. 24.00
