Following the formal birth of their design bureau in 1939, the Mikoyan and Gurevich design team ascended with extraordinary rapidity into the ranks of the aerospace elite. This meteoric rise was not without justification, as their perseverance had resulted in the development of a number of truly exceptional fighters in an environment that would have defeated a less tenacious pair in short order. Beginning with the MiG-1 and MiG-3 piston engine fighters, their work consistently represented the state-of-the art in the Soviet Union for some four decades and did not end with their respective deaths in 1970 and 1976. Talented engineers such as Rostislav Belyakov were quick to fill the voids left by their mentors, and as result, the legacy of excellence continues.
This is the culmination of many years' research. It is a complete and thorough textual and photographic history of this most-admired of Society fighter design teams, and includes highly detailed and authoritative historical and technical data describing every known MiG aircraft and missile. Additionally, brief but thorough biographical sketches are provided on a variety of MiG bureau personalities, and early chapters include significant insight into the Soviet system of hardware acquisition and development.

Bossa N' Ramones is an album that places the songbook of the creators of punk in a new place full of subtleties, elegance and imagination. With more than a million records sold around the world, the newest chapter of The Rio Series is, without a doubt, the most adventurous and seductive. Recorded around the world, the album shines with the guest appearances of two transcendental female vocalists; Cherie Currie, ex singer of The Runaways (all female glam rock band who were a direct inspiration to the punk movement), Angie Bowie (singer, actress and writer, ex-wife of David Bowie and creator of the concept of glam rock) and Yasmin Gate, a member of Dirty Princess…

The scientific method of mechanism, by which the study of all things is broken down to their smallest building blocks and reassembled in hierarchical order, is the intellectual crowbar that tore down the religion-based myths that dominated thought before the Renaissance. Veteran programmer and computer scientist Andrei Sorin argues that mechanism has outlived its usefulness. Worse, it has become the new mythology, one as vigorously defended by today's academic and technological elite as the papacy and the Inquisition protected the belief system of the Middle Ages.

From tales of chivalrous knights to the barbarity of trial by ordeal, no era has been a greater source of awe, horror, and wonder than the Middle Ages. In handsomely crafted prose and with the grace and authority of his extraordinary gift for narrative history, William Manchester leads us from a civilization tottering on the brink of collapse to the grandeur of its rebirth, the Renaissance, a dense explosion of energy that spawned some of history's greatest poets, philosophers, and painters, as well as some of its most spectacular villains.
