Glock: The World's Handgun (Collector's Guides), Chris McNab
5 Chris McNab Glock: The World's Handgun (Collector's Guides)
Amber Books 2015 1782742565 / 9781782742562 HARDCOVER New 
The Glock series of handguns represents one of the greatest steps forward in pistol design since the introduction of Colt M1911. Inspired by the Austrian Army's 1980 request for a new sidearm, the Glock Ges.m.b.H. company set to work designing and developing a revolutionary new weapon that combined reliability, firepower and the latest in material technology. Within two years it had been adopted by the Austrian Army, but such were its qualities that within a decade the handgun was a dominant presence in global military, law enforcement and civilian markets. More than 2.5 million have been sold to date, in use with more than 50 nations. In the United States alone, the gun has taken 65 per cent of the law enforcement market. Collector?s Guide: Glock follows the evolution of the Glock handgun from concept to market leader, and explains each of the many variants and calibres, starting with the original Glock 17 and working through to the latest fourth-generation models. Looking at the Glock?s practical use, the story is both dramatic and, at times, controversial. Glocks have been fired in earnest in the most varied of contexts; users include the Bangladesh Army, French naval commandos, German GSG 9 police, Malaysian customs officials, Singaporean prison guards, the FBI and dozens of US state police forces. Add its pervasive appeal in civilian handgun markets, and the Glock currently stands as one of the most influential sidearms of the last 50 years. Illustrated with more than 200 color and black-and-white artworks and photographs, Collector's Guide: Glock is an expertly written account of one of the most influential handguns in the world today.

Summer Of '49, David Halberstam
7 David Halberstam Summer Of '49
William Morrow & Co 1991 068806678X / 9780688066789 HARDCOVER Used; Very Good 
William Morrow & Co. Hardcover. 1989 Book Condition: Very Good. Jacket Condition: Very Good. Former owners stamp on front free endpaper. With incredible skill, passion, and insight, Pulitzer Prize–winning author David Halberstam returns us to a glorious time when the dreams of a now almost forgotten America rested on the crack of a bat.
The year was 1949, and a war-weary nation turned from the battlefields to the ball fields in search of new heroes. It was a summer that marked the beginning of a sports rivalry unequaled in the annals of athletic competition. The awesome New York Yankees and the indomitable Boston Red Sox were fighting for supremacy of baseball's American League, and an aging Joe DiMaggio and a brash, headstrong hitting phenomenon named Ted Williams led their respective teams in a classic pennant duel of almost mythic proportions—one that would be decided in an explosive head-to-head confrontation on the last day of the season.

Eight Men Out: The Black Sox And The 1919 World Series (The Black Sox & The 1919 World Series), Eliot Asinof
8 Eliot Asinof Eight Men Out: The Black Sox And The 1919 World Series (The Black Sox & The 1919 World Series)
1988 0805003460 / 9780805003468 TRADE PAPERBACK Used; Very Good 
Henry Holt & Company, 1987. Paperback Book Condition: Very Good. The headlines proclaimed the 1919 fix of the World Series and attempted cover-up as “the most gigantic sporting swindle in the history of America!” First published in 1963, Eight Men Out has become a timeless classic. Eliot Asinof has reconstructed the entire scene-by-scene story of the fantastic scandal in which eight Chicago White Sox players arranged with the nation’s leading gamblers to throw the Series in Cincinnati. Mr. Asinof vividly describes the tense meetings, the hitches in the conniving, the actual plays in which the Series was thrown, the Grand Jury indictment, and the famous 1921 trial. Moving behind the scenes, he perceptively examines the motives and backgrounds of the players and the conditions that made the improbable fix all too possible. Here, too, is a graphic picture of the American underworld that managed the fix, the deeply shocked newspapermen who uncovered the story, and the war-exhausted nation that turned with relief and pride to the Series, only to be rocked by the scandal. Far more than a superbly told baseball story, this is a compelling slice of American history in the aftermath of World War I and at the cusp of the Roaring Twenties.
