Gangsters, kidnappers, maniacal killers, and thugs of all stripes had their lurid stories recounted in Crime Does Not Pay, a seminal '40s comic-book series. Bob Wood, its editor, brutally murdered his girlfriend, did prison time, and was then murdered himself! This fascinating sidebar is described in an essay by cartoonist, historian, and co-editor Denis Kitchen. Featuring thrilling, disturbing, and brutal tales and despicable characters, Crime Does Not Pay enthralled a nation. With a claimed readership of over 5 million it was the most popular comic book of its day. The series was a favorite target of Dr. Frederic Wertham and other censors and is partially responsible for the creation of the Comics Code Authority, yet it was an inspiration for Harvey Kurtzman's reality-based EC Comics. See why this series was revered and reviled!

Roman Coins and Their Values. Volume III

Roman Coins and Their Values. Volume III
The Third Century Crisis and Recovery. AD 235 - AD 285

2005 | David R. Sear | Spink | ISBN: 1902040694 | English | PDF | pages 536 | 93.4 Mb

The (5th) Millennium Edition. Volume One, The Republic and the Twelve Caesars. Twelve Caesars 280 BC - AD 96. 532 pages, more than 1,200 illustrations in the text. Valuations in and US$. Casebound. The original edition of Sear's Roman Coins and Their Values was published by Seaby thirty-six years ago and has been through four revisions (1970, 1974, 1981 and 1988). However, the publication of the 'Millennium Edition' of this popular work makes a radical departure from previous editions. The catalogue entries have been expanded to include a virtually complete listing of the entire Roman Republican series, as well as more comprehensive coverage of the much larger and more complex Imperial series. Greater emphasis is now placed on the precise chronology and place of mintage of each type and extensive coverage is given to the important series of billon and bronze coins struck at Alexandria over a period of more than 300 years. The valuations have been exhaustively researched from recent auction records and fixed price catalogues and many professional numismatists have contributed their valuable opinions on specific series. Prices (both in British pounds and US dollars) are now expressed in either two or three grades of preservation for each entry, usually 'VF' and 'EF' for precious metal issues, and 'F', 'VF' and 'EF' for Imperial Bronzes.

Alex and the Hobo: A Chicano Life and Story

Alex and the Hobo: A Chicano Life and Story

José Inez Taylor, James M. Taggart "Alex and the Hobo: A Chicano Life and Story"
Publisher: University of Texas Press 2003 | 222 Pages | ISBN: 0292781792 | PDF | 1.7 MB

"This book represents a significant contribution to the discipline in that it raises important issues of ethnographic authority and authorship. . . . Indeed, it could serve as a model for new ways to write ethnography." –Miguel Díaz-Barriga, Associate Professor of Sociology and Anthropology, Swarthmore College When a ten-year-old boy befriends a mysterious hobo in his southern Colorado hometown in the early 1940s, he learns about evil in his community and takes his first steps toward manhood by attempting to protect his new friend from corrupt officials. Though a fictional story, Alex and the Hobo is written out of the life experiences of its author, José Inez (Joe) Taylor, and it realistically portrays a boy's coming-of-age as a Spanish-speaking man who must carve out an honorable place for himself in a class-stratified and Anglo-dominated society. In this innovative ethnography, anthropologist James Taggart collaborates with Joe Taylor to explore how Alex and the Hobo sprang from Taylor's life experiences and how it presents an insider's view of Mexicano culture and its constructions of manhood. They frame the story (included in its entirety) with chapters that discuss how it encapsulates notions that Taylor learned from the Chicano movement, the farmworkers' union, his community, his father, his mother, and his religion. Taggart gives the ethnography a solid theoretical underpinning by discussing how the story and Taylor's account of how he created it represent an act of resistance to the class system that Taylor perceives as destroying his native culture.
US Navy and marine corps A-4 skyhawk units of the vietnam war

Peter Mersky, "US Navy and marine corps A-4 skyhawk units of the vietnam war".
Publisher: Osprey Publishing | ISBN: 1846031818 | 2007 edition | PDF | 112 Pages | 17.87 MB

Seeing considerable combat in the nearly 50 years since its service introduction, the Skyhawk was involved in Vietnam from the very beginning. Navy and Marine Corps A-4s quickly established a presence in Southeast Asia, flying from aircraft carriers and land bases in South Vietnam in thousands of sorties against the entrenched communist forces from Hanoi to the communist supply lines along the Ho Chi Minh Trail. This book includes details of missions including the siege of Khe Sanh, Lam Son and the contentious invasion of Laos and Cambodia in 1971 and gives a fascinating account of the variety of missions pilots were asked to perform. These operations were not without risk, and large numbers of A-4s were shot down and their pilots killed or, like Edward Alvarez, imprisoned as POWs for up to eight years in appalling conditions.
