A motion-picture of the development of knock in a spark-ignition engine is presented, which consists of 20 photographs taken at intervals of 5 microseconds, or at a rate of 200,000 photographs a second, with an equivalent wide-open exposure time of 6.4 microseconds for each photograph. A motion picture of a complete combustion process, including the development of knock, taken at the rate of 40,000 photographs a second is also presented to assist the reader in orienting the photographs of the knock development taken at 200,000 frames per second are analyzed and the conclusion is made that the type of knock in the spark-ignition engine involving violent gas vibration originates as a self-propagating disturbance starting at a point in the burning or autoigniting gases and spreading out from that point through the incompletely burned gases at a rate as high as 6800 feet per second, or about twice the speed of sound in the burned gases. Apparent formation of free carbon particles in both the burning and the burned gas is observed within 10 microseconds after passage of the knock disturbance through the gases.

Fought over the course of four years, the Civil War pitted countrymen against countrymen, North versus South, friend against friend, and brother against brother. The photographs within these pages document the war that united America as one. These rare shots were taken in the middle of the battlefield during the earliest days of photography. Selected from a collection of seven thousand original negatives, these historic photos capture nearly every aspect of Civil War life. Among these photos are images of camps sprawling across acres, soldiers at their battlements, firing of heavy artillery, the aftermath of battle, and the terror that these young men faced. See first-hand of Union and Confederate officers strategizing their next moves, and Abraham Lincoln addressing his Union commanders. Originally released from the private collection of Edward Bailey Eaton in 1907, this edition is a must have for any Civil War buff or historian. No collection can be considered complete without these photographs by Matthew Brady and Alexander Gardner, as well as the meticulous passages that put the images in illuminating context.

Crime Scene Photography, Second Edition, offers an introduction to the basic concepts of forensic picture-taking. The forensic photographer, or more specifically the crime scene photographer, must know how to create an acceptable image that is capable of withstanding challenges in court. The photographic theory and principles have to be well grounded in the physics of optics, the how-to recommendations have to work, and the end result must be admissible in court. Based on the author's years of experience in the field at both the Arlington County and Baltimore County Police Departments, this book blends the practical functions of crime scene processing with theories of photography to guide the student in acquiring the skills, knowledge, and ability to render reliable evidence. This text has been carefully constructed for ease of use and effectiveness in training and was class-tested by the author at George Washington University. Beginning August 2008, this book will be required reading by the IAI Crime Scene Certification Board for all levels of certification (through August 2011).

Founded by William Pynchon in 1635, Agawam was among the earliest settlements along the Connecticut River. Located on an early Colonial road connecting Springfield with Connecticut, Agawam Center remained the hub of the town until the early 1900s. As trolleys and automobiles made travel easier, development spread west toward the village of Feeding Hills and set in motion the transformation from quiet farming community to bustling village center. Agawam and Feeding Hills captures Agawam's rich past through photographs and postcards from the 1880s to the 1950s. The book rediscovers lost Agawam landmarks, such as Randall Field and Bowles Airport, the Feeding Hills train station, the Agawam and Feeding Hills Town Halls, and the Porter Distillery, makers of nationally known Agawam Gin. It includes views by the well-known Howes brothers of Ashfield and of Agawam Center from the beginning of the twentieth century and chronicles a simpler and less hurried chapter of this town's history. The Agawam Historical Association operates the Agawam Historical & Fire House Museum from the 1918 Elm Street fire station in Agawam. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of Agawam and Feeding Hills will be used by the association for the maintenance of the museum.

The true story of a serial killer’s four-year rampage in the deserts of New Mexico from the New York Times–bestselling author of Shattered Innocence. For four years a murderous fiend spread terror throughout the deserts of Shiprock, New Mexico. The nightmare began on Thanksgiving 1996, when two young men were stabbed and slashed to death in an alleged attempt to cover up a robbery. Next, a woman was subjected to a grotesque sexual assault—but somehow managed to escape with her life. Donald Tsosie wasn’t so lucky. After leaving a local watering hole, he was savagely bludgeoned, stabbed, and left to die. On June 9, 2000, Betty Lee was stabbed and then slain with a sledgehammer after being stripped of her clothing. Justice finally arrived in the form of county detectives Bob Melton and Tyler Truby, whose investigation zeroed in on hulking, hate-ridden Robert “Bobby” Fry, a misfit with a taste for brutality. Aided by Navajo trackers, authorities conducted a sleepless two-and-a-half-day manhunt to bag the killer before the trail went cold. Then, like the Hero Twins of local legend, they brought a monster’s murderous rampage to an end. Includes 16 pages of shocking photos! “Intriguing.” —Tony Hillerman
