Stoeger Publishing Company | ISBN: 0883171597 | edition 1990 | PDF | 210 pages | 93,3 MB

Some say the sport of benchrest shooting along with its gadgetry, precision and techniques is one of the best kept secrets in the shooting world. The relative scarcity of books on the subject would tend to bear this out. Efforts by key individuals in organized benchrest competition have often been directed toward swelling our numbers but have never made this sport as large as some of the other shooting disciplines. The author of this work has attempted to offer some historical background as part of this treatise. More than this, he has attempted to put in perspective where the sport has been, where it is now, and some hints on where it is going. Persons, places, equipment, techniques and practices are discussed in terms of this unique contribution to the development of that mysterious sport called benchrest shooting.

Fully bookmarked PDF.


The Iranian Revolution of 1979 and recent events in Lebanon have greatly increased Western interest in the Shi'i branch of Islam, which is much less known than Sunni Islam. This volume provides a balanced and comprehensive treatment of a complex religious movement that has flourished since Islam's earliest days. Although it attempts no new or sophisticated interpretations, specialist and nonspecialist alike will benefit from its lucid exposition of both elite and popular Shi'ism. Especially valuable is the way the work presents modern critical scholarship on Shi'i history alongside the orthodox history, which still has great influence on the religion's self-understanding. A brief but useful concluding account locates the Iranian Revolution and Imam Khomeini within the framework of Iranian Shi'ism.

Michael Burgan, "The Underground Railroad (Slavery in the Americas)".
Publisher: Facts on File | ISBN: 0816061378 | 2006 edition | PDF | 112 Pages | 3.15 MB

The transatlantic slave trade and the fugitive slave laws in the late 18th century led to a significant increase in the number of people seeking freedom. Runaway slaves were often aided in their escape by a growing network of people who saw slavery as morally reprehensible. This network, the Underground Railroad, was first organized in the 1830s and continued on through the Civil War, growing and evolving as owners hunted down runaways. The system eventually disappeared with the official end of slavery in the South after the Civil War. From the new set "Slavery in the Americas"…

The Soft Cage: Surveillance in America from Slavery to the War on Terror
Publisher: Basic Books | pages: 288 | 2003 | ISBN: 0465054846 | PDF | 14,4 mb

Attempts to keep an eye on Americans are nothing new, Parenti argues in this well-researched albeit pedantic history of ways people have been controlled in the U.S. Relying on the theories of scholar Michel Foucault-who used surveillance and control as two of his central themes-Parenti begins with slavery, focusing on the slave passes that slaveowners used to keep their human property in place. He then moves on to new crime controls, like fingerprinting, that accompanied increased urbanization. Throughout, he emphasizes how new technology has always increased the government's ability to spy on its citizens. So it's no surprise that the current rise in technology comes in for special criticism. Credit cards, ATMs, highway toll passes such as E-ZPass are all tools that the government can employ to curtail freedom. There's a lot of food for thought here (and some troubling aspects of American history brought to light). But Parenti's lens is too sharp and his antigovernment animus too apparent. As he himself admits, most Americans seem to think that some liberties are worth trading in if they bring more security. There's no doubt that books focusing on this topic can be helpful contributions to the national discourse, but when Parenti sees post-September 11 not as a shift toward cracking down on civil liberties but as more of the same, many readers will likely feel he is a bit off base.
