88 PARDINI, Albert L. Legendary Secret Norden Bombsight. First Edition in dustjacket
Schiffer Military History, Atglen, Pennsylvania, 1999, ISBN:0764307231 
PARDINI, Albert L. The Legendary Secret Norden Bombsight. Atglen, Pennsylvania : Schiffer Military History, (1999). Pp (4),5-352. 8vo, tan cloth, black lettering to front & spine. "This book is the first detailed volume to cover the famous Norden Bombsight (NBS) which was one of the most secret weapons used before and during World War II by the United States in its bomber aircraft. Development of the NBS was started in 1922 by the Navy Bureau of Ordnance, and in 1932 the famous Mark XV was introduced. Configuration of the NBS, except for changes, remained static through its life, and its accuracy during Allied bombing runs made it one of the most important technical developments of the war. Later several attachments were devised to make it more accurate -- new optics were developed, ballistic charts updated, and electrical engineering methods refined with the aid of research centers. Electronics were first used in the C-1 auto pilot in 1941, and radar was also used with the NBS, and it was also used in the first guided bombs, called AZON / RAZON, the forerunner of the guided missile. The NBS was again calledto duty in 1967-68 in the Vietnam war, before it was phased out of the inv entory. This is its complete story." - from the dj. Very good in dustjacket. 30.00

91 PEIRCE, Jon. Social Studies : Collected Essays, 1974-2013. Paperback Edition, signed.
Friesen Press, Victoria, BC, 2014, ISBN:9781460236246 
PEIRCE, Jon. Social Studies : Collected Essays, 1974-2013. (Victoria, BC: Friesen Press, June 2014). Pp. (4),v-vii,(3),3-249,(7). 8vo, printed blue card covers with copper and grey lettering to front, white and copper lettering to spine. A collection of essays on a variety of topics by the Dartmouth, Nova Scotia-residing author and educator. "Just let me turn down that armadillo steak I'm cooking for dinner; then I'll be right with you. Such an easy recipe. You should try it. You just soak your 'dillo meat in a pint of bourbon in which you've been soaking a cup of cactus needles overnight. Keep the 'dillo meat soaking for about two weeks, until it starts to turn goodand high. You'll know it's ready when you can get through it fairly easily with a hatchet... If you thought the essay was dead, think again. In the h ands of Jon Peirce, a writer with a wicked imagination, strong social conscience, and a keen sense of the absurd, the time-honoured genre takes many different forms. The essays in this book range from short, rapier-like skewerings of political hypocrisy and injustice to a leisurely exploration of the metric system and its implications for writers. In between you will find many pieces that will make you laugh, a few that will make you cry, and some that will leave you shaking your head in wonderment." - from rear.

Pp (8),ix-xviii,(2),[1]-241,(1). Double Column. Large 8vo, black cloth, silver lettering to spine. "The Cold War that dominatedworld political, economic, and military activities for almost half of the 20th century was, in many respects, 'fought' at sea between the United States and the Soviet Union. The U.S. Navy played a central role from the outset, projecting America's presence and power to the far corners of the globe while attempting to stop Soviet aggressions and to advance its own agenda. This useful reference provides a detailed chronological outline of Cold Wardevelopments and events as they relate to U.S. and Soviet naval forces and their allies. Chronology covers naval forward-presence and combat operatio ns from the Berlin crisis, Korea, the Suez campaign, and the Vietnam War tothe Iran - Iraq conflict, the Falkands War, and the Gulf War. Smaller-scal e confrontations are also included. Events of the Cuban Missile Crisis, Stalin's massive naval expansion, the largest peace-time U.S. naval buildup inhistory during the 1980s, and other crucial events are presented. The auth ors likewise present a wealth of information on naval technological and personnel developments, such as the unveiling of new ship types, advances in missile technology, the introduction of new aircraft, and changes in naval leadership. [...] By showcasing new information made available through the opening of Russian archives, this book serves as a walk through history as well as an indispensable reference for naval history buffs and serious students of the Cold War." - from the dj.
