The Heyday of the HST

As the HST enters the twilight of its career, interest in these units is increasing, making this all-colour tribute to the type all the more likely to appeal to a wide cross section of the railway book-buying public.

The Heyday of the HST

Records in some 85 colour photographs, many aspects of the varied career of the HST and the liveries the units have carried from the mid-1970s through to the first decade of the 21st Century. This work is of interest to enthusiasts, and railway modellers who have selected the period since the mid-1970s as their prototype.

Intercity HST 125

done admirably by Colin Marsden in his two ... under BR and under privatisation;
that has been done comprehensively by Gavin Morrison in The Heyday of the
HST.

Intercity HST 125

The story of the HST is a rare example of British design success. Developed in the 1970s at a time when the railways were in desperate need of modernization, it filled the gap left by the failure of the infamous APT tilting train to become the mainstay of high-speed rail travel for several decades.

Ancient Gonzo Wisdom

Bristling with inspired observations and wild anecdotes, this first collection offers a unique insight into the voice and mind of the inimitable Hunter S. Thompson, as recorded in the pages of Playboy, The Paris Review, Esquire, and elsewhere. Fearless and unsparing, the interviews detail some of the most storied episodes of Thompson's life: a savage beating at the hands of the Hells Angels, talking football with Nixon on the 1972 Campaign Trail (“the only time in 20 years of listening to the treacherous bastard that I knew he wasn't lying”), and his unlikely run for sheriff of Aspen. Elsewhere, passionate tirades about journalism, culture, guns, drugs, and the law showcase Thompson's voice at its fiercest. Arranged chronologically, and prefaced with Anita Thompson's moving account of her husband's last years, the interviews present Hunter in all his fractured brilliance and provide an exceptional portrait of his times.

Multilateralism Under Challenge

The principles, values, and manifestations of multilateralism, including the United Nations, are under sustained scrutiny and assault. Their performance and effectiveness are questioned, as are their decisionmaking procedures and their representation, according to 21st-century standards of accountability and democracy. All of this has a corrosive effect on their legitimacy. Multilateralism under Challenge? explores the performance and future of multilateral approaches and institutions with reference to major global problems such as terrorism, weapons of mass destruction, HIV/AIDS, environmental sustainability, economic justice, human rights, and humanitarian assistance. "Multilateralism is an essential component of international life, as the contributions to this volume clearly demonstrate. We need to make multilateralism more effective and more accountable, to be sure. This book advances constructive ideas on how to do just that." --John G. Ruggie, Harvard University

Minuteman

In Minuteman: A Technical History of the Missile That Defined American Nuclear Warfare, David K. Stumpf demystifies the intercontinental ballistic missile program that was conceived at the end of the Eisenhower administration as a key component of the US nuclear strategy of massive retaliation. Although its nuclear warhead may have lacked power relative to that of the Titan II, the Minuteman more than made up for this in terms of numbers and readiness to launch—making it the ultimate ICBM. Minuteman offers a fascinating look at the technological breakthroughs necessary to field this weapon system that has served as a powerful component of the strategic nuclear triad for more than half a century. With exacting detail, Stumpf examines the construction of launch and launch control facilities; innovations in solid propellant, lightweight inertial guidance systems, and lightweight reentry vehicle development; and key flight tests and operational flight programs—all while situating the Minuteman program in the context of world events. In doing so, the author reveals how the historic missile has adapted to changing defense strategies—from counterforce to mutually assured destruction to sufficiency.
