Otto Lilenthal
Scientists and aviation enthusiasts from around the world will find this one of the most important books ever published. It's the work of the German aviation pioneer and creative genius, Otto Lilienthal, whose observation, analysis, ingenuity and daring laid the foundation for the development of aviation. The "Flying Man" Lilienthal was the first man to launch himself into the air, fly, and land safely. First published in 1891, this new edition is an unabridged copy of the original complete with Lilienthal's own diagrams and formulae, and a preface written in 1911 by A.W. Isenthal, who translated the original into English after Lilienthal's death. After a comprehensive scientific study of how birds fly, Lilienthal recognized the superiority of curved wing surfaces. He then developed a theory of flight and designed and built a series of gliders. From 1891 to 1896 he made over 2,000 glides-bridging the gap between those who dreamed of flying and those who flew.

Increased demand for gears to transmit more power through smaller, lighter, quieter, and more reliable packages that must operate over a wide range of service conditions, has made the design and manufacture of gears much more complex. Gears manufactured from certain steels are found to meet these demands, and become especially effective when heat treated and finish machined for high geometric accuracy. However, distortion of the gear after heat treatment offers the gear engineer a challenging opportunity not only in ensuring a high quality product but also in controlling manufacturing costs. Heat Treatment of Gears is designed to provide the gear design engineer with a better understanding of heat treatment and its effects on gear quality and performance, especially as these considerations are critical to ensuring that the gears perform satisfactorily under anticipated service conditions.

Henry Ford was one of the most misunderstood pioneers of the 20th century. Henry Ford: A Hearthside Perspective reveals a different side of the famous man. Werling, director of the Henry Ford Estate, University of Michigan-Dearborn, gained personal insight into Ford by researching the homesites, hearthsides, and communities where Ford had a strong influence. Through captivating anecdotes, this book offers a behind-the-scenes perspective on Ford and his business, political, and personal activities. Werling concludes that despite his shortcomings, Ford positively affected the lives of many with his contributions to the advancement of technology, his contributions to society through restoration, and his donations (over one-third of Ford's income was donated to philanthropic causes).

The sole published expose of one of racing's most famous secret activities. Originally published in 1972, Chevrolet-Racing? reveals the inside story of Chevrolet's early surreptitious involvement in racing, from 1957-1970. This re-issue of the collector's classic tells the fascinating story of how, from 1957 to 1970, Chevrolet probably acquired more successes and more technical knowledge of high performance than any other company in the world. Ironically, they never built a complete, running, race-ready vehicle; nor were ever officially represented at a race, and they never claimed credit for any Chevy products in racing wins, or promoted them in advertising for all that time. How did they accomplish what they did? This book reveals the untold story.
