In the 50 years since Sputnik's historic orbit kickstarted a race to the stars, spaceflight has moved from a speculative and experimental science to a staple of contemporary life. Space exploration has changed the way we look at our universe, our planet, and even the people around us. AFTER SPUTNIK will explore the first 50 years of achievements in space with a guided tour of the artifacts in the collection of the National Air and Space Museum. This is the premier collection of space artifacts in the world, and includes most US artifacts; major Russian artifacts on loan; and most recently, Burt Rutan's Space Ship One. In addition, the museum's popular culture collection and an art collection include objects such as a 1930s Buck Rogers stopwatch, and Norman Rockwell's famous painting, Suiting Up. Using a selection of 180 to 200 objects, this book will tell the artifact stories to convey a sense of what it was like to be there when the object was in use, accompanied by dramatic photographs. The artifacts will range from the famous, such as John Glenn's Friendship 7 Mercury spacecraft and the Mars Pathfinder lander and Sojourner rover, to the equally rare, but less well–known, such as the Surveyor 3 camera returned from the Moon and Gordon Cooper's space boots. No other book can offer this breadth and depth of artifacts.

Cuban cop Mercado has a score to settle, on behalf of a deadbeat dad, a 'traitor' who skipped free from Castro's control to set up a new life working illegally in Colorado. He settled in a ski resort popular with the Hollywood set, where the facade is maintained by the immigrant cleaners and labourers who work for below minimum wage while the local sheriff is bribed to turn a blind eye. Hernandez Snr.'s dreams of fortune and freedom came to a swift end when he was killed in a hit-and-run accident.Sworn to avenge his death, Mercado has some obstacles to overcome - not least getting out of Cuba, where visas are as elusive as constant electricity.Switching back and forth between heat-soaked Havana and the icy luxury of the mountainside resort, Fifty Grand is an audacious thriller from an acknowledged talent -- and an incendiary debut for a new hero.'McKinty is one of Britain's great contemporary crime writers and the Sean Duffy books are his masterpiece.'IAN RANKIN

"50 Years with Car and Driver commemorates the golden anniversary of the most popular car magazine on the planet. But more than that, 50 Years with Car and Driver tells the story of the American automobile and how the editors of the magazine witnessed that history and reported on it, firsthand. A look at how Car and Driver evolved from its beginnings as Sports Cars Illustrated, in the able hands of great automotive journalists such as Ken Purdy and John Christy, and then came into it own as the musclecar era of the Sixties dawned. Writers such as David E. Davis, Jr., Brock Yates and Patrick Bedard helped to craft a literary car magazine that drew as much inspiration from Tom Wolfe's writing as it did from the great cars of the day." "Through the Seventies the magazine's reputation solidified as the technical authority on new cars, and the literary tradition continued with such writers as Don Sherman and author P.J. O'Rourke." "Throughout the Eighties, the magazine prospered even when its writers went off the deep end - literally, getting stranded in Mexico during a Baja comparison test. Car and Driver watched over the virtual rebirth of the American car during that decade, with the renaissance at Ford through the Taurus and the revival of the Corvette, while keeping its lock on the strongest feature writing in the auto magazines with stories like Brock Yates's thirty-years-past observance of the death of James Dean." "The Nineties saw Car and Driver continue its leadership as the world's largest-selling automotive magazine. From the introduction of the Acura NSX and the Mazda Miata to the brand-new Mustangs and Corvettes that have come in just the past years, Car and Driver has been the authority that readers trust when it comes to 0-60 times, road tests and reviews." "Fifty Years with Car and Driver combines classic stories from the magazine, commentary by former staffers including the author, vintage and modern photos of the hottest and most important cars reviewed by the magazines, as well as stories from behind the scenes - with all the attitude, expertise and visual excitement readers have come to expect from the magazine itself."--BOOK JACKET.

For the first time information from the Society of Painters in Watercolour's printed catalogues and handwritten sales book has been brought together in one volume, thus making it possible to establish not only when a particular painting by a specific artist was exhibited but also, in a great many cases, how much it sold for and who purchased it. This volume lists all the paintings that were exhibited in the 50 years following the inaugural exhibition held from April to June 1805. As well as many well-known names such as David Cox, Peter De Wint, Copley Fielding, Samuel Palmer and John Varley, the 17,000 entries include several lesser known artists. Famous patrons include Queen Victoria, Prince Albert, Sir Robert Peel and William Beckford. This book will add to the value of watercolours listed within it; to know that a watercolour was exhibited at the Royal Watercolour Society will give added confidence to potential buyers, especially if the price and the first owner are quoted. This is a valuable reference for paintings by established artists as well as lesser known exhibitors, and should be highly valued by dealers, collectors, art historians and researchers.

"This retrospective look at 50 years of international motor advertising provides a unique "mirror of the times" and gives more than just an insight into the history of the automobile industry itself. Motor advertising has both molded and reflected public demand, public taste, and the manners and mores of the age. The 150 illustrations in this book therefore range from the downright misleading pronouncements of charlatans to the evocative lyricism of brilliant copyrighters like Ned Jordan. Chapters are devoted to the early use of motor sport in advertising, the feminine influence on sales techniques, and the effects of the postwar mass market on motor advertising."--Jacket.

Coco Plotnick Hollander Harding, a columnist for Connecticut’s Seaport Gazette, relishes two things in life: food and sex. While the first can be satisfied with a delectable foie gras, her cravings for the latter leave her with hunger pangs of a different sort–particularly since her WASPy husband is not exactly a gourmand in the bedroom. While covering a Chaîne des Rôtisseurs vegetarian banquet for the Gazette, Coco finds her appetite whetted by a very charming (and very married) plastic surgeon, Harry Troutman. The two foodies quickly commence a feast of hot infidelity, but anonymous letters sent to Coco’s husband and Harry’s sleek, self-indulgent wife, Eclaire, hint at the torrid affair . . . and provide the crucial ingredients in a recipe for disaster. Will the lovers receive their just desserts? In this lip-smacking debut novel, Judith Marks-White whips up a five-course meal of saucy wit, steamy sex, and tantalizing scandal that will fill your plate and please your palate. From the Trade Paperback edition.
