Book Description :

Tom Wolfe's 1979's novel, The Right Stuff, highlighted how seven test pilots were picked to be part of the Mercury Project. In Wolfe's book, he documents the enormous risk that these men took to push the envelope and deliver America to be the first on the moon. These men were chosen because of their mental and physical toughness-they were chosen because they had "the right stuff." As the space and aviation industries matured, they quickly learned that relying on men and women to have the "right stuff" does not work. Several high profile fatal airline accidents led to the creation of a new term-"Human Factors." Delivering the Right Stuff examines the airline industry's investigations into Human Factors and details how key findings from aircraft accidents shaped its acceptance of pilot error. It is an evolution that delivered transferrable frontline tools that forged a foundation for safety and operational excellence.

Book Description :

From "America's nerviest journalist" (Newsweek)--a breath-taking epic, a magnificent adventure story, and an investigation into the true heroism and courage of the first Americans to conquer space. "Tom Wolfe at his very best" (The New York Times Book Review) Millions of words have poured forth about man's trip to the moon, but until now few people have had a sense of the most engrossing side of the adventure; namely, what went on in the minds of the astronauts themselves - in space, on the moon, and even during certain odysseys on earth. It is this, the inner life of the astronauts, that Tom Wolfe describes with his almost uncanny empathetic powers, that made The Right Stuff a classic.

Book Description :

While The Right Stuff and The Bonfire of the Vanities remain perhaps his best-known works, Tom Wolfe's journalism and fiction continues to enjoy a large audience, perhaps chiefly because of the variety of his subjects and his controversial approach to them. Here, McEneaney offers an account of the man and his works, explaining along the way Wolfe's use of irony, his obsessive themes, and even his use of pranks. More comprehensive in scope than any preceding book on Wolfe, it offers accurate and accessible commentary based upon what Wolfe admits about his own work. In this new book, Wolfe's work is put in journalistic and literary context. The reliability of Wolfe's journalism is discussed, especially when there are alternative narrations to events he has depicted. McEneaney also examines the Wolfe's use of pranks that he plays on readers at times, and uncovers the influences on Wolfe that have contributed to his unique style. Finally, the author discusses Wolfe's impact on other writers. Readers will gain access into Wolfe's world through this detailed and colorful work.

Book Description :

The recent 50th anniversaries of the first human spaceflights by the Soviet Union and the United States, and the 30th anniversary of the launching of the first U.S. Space Shuttle mission, have again brought to mind the pioneering accomplishments of the first quarter century of humans in space. Historians, political scientists and others have extensively examined the technical, programmatic and political history of human spaceflight from the 1960s to the 1980s, but work is only beginning on the social and cultural history of the pioneering era. One rapidly developing area of recent scholarship is the examination of the images of spacefarers in the media, government propaganda and popular culture. How was space travel imagined in the visual media on the cusp of human spaceflights? How were astronauts and cosmonauts represented in official and quasi-official media portraits? And how were those images reproduced and transformed by in the imagination of film-makers, movie producers, popular writers, and novelists? Spacefarers addresses these questions with nine contributions from scholars in the field of aerospace history, Russian and American history, and English literature. These essays are preceded by an introduction by the editor, who discusses their place in the historiography of spaceflight and social and cultural history. The book will have potential appeal to a wide variety of scholars in history, literature and the social sciences and will include a number of striking visual images.

Book Description :

What is the Alt-Right, and how will it affect America? Donald Trump’s election as president in 2016 suddenly brought to prominence a political movement that few in political circles or the mainstream media had paid much attention to: the so-called Alt-Right. Steven Bannon, Trump's campaign manager, was a leading figure in the movement, and the election results seemed to give it a real opportunity to gain some political power. But what is the Alt-Right? Is it a movement, a theory, a trend, or just an unorganized group of people far outside of what used to be the political mainstream in America? Or, could it be all of these things? Why has it suddenly emerged into prominence? What impact is it having on American politics today, and what are the prospects for the Alt-Right in the future? Through careful research and analysis, The Rise of the Alt-Right addresses these and other questions, tracing the movement’s history from the founding of modern conservatism in postwar America to the current Trump era. Although the Alt-Right might seem to be just the latest extremist group to arise in the United States—one likely to take its place in the graveyard of its many predecessors—Thomas J. Main analyzes evidence that the Alt-Right is having a greater influence on the American political mainstream than did past extremist tendencies. The Rise of the Alt-Right is thus an important study for anyone interested in the future of American politics and public life.

Book Description :

The Astronaut: Cultural Mythology and Idealised Masculinity interrogates the historical and cultural dynamics of one of the most revered icons of the 20th century. Analysing a diverse range of cultural representations the book postulates the construction of an intertextual mythology through which the astronaut becomes an embodiment of American ideological values and heroic manhood. The discursive processes at work in the range of media texts examined serve to embed the astronaut into the cultural imaginary as a largely coherent and uncontested exemplar of idealised masculinity. Using a range of interdisciplinary analytical tools the book examines how the social construction of this masculine ideal iterates and naturalises gender hegemony. The book situates the astronaut within the context of a modern/postmodern theoretical framework linking shifts in gender perspectives to the contradictory narratives and characterisations that inform the mediation of the astronaut. In so doing, the book argues for a re-evaluation of the, often oversimplified, use of the term hegemonic masculinity as an anchoring point for the critique of masculinity. The strength of this work is its interdisciplinary diversity and its interconnection of a range of themes including gender, representation, history, ideology, the postmodern and the media. Drawing upon contemporary theoretical debates while redeploying seminal theoretical texts the book offers new cultural interrogations of a highly familiar historical subject.

Book Description :

INTRODUCTION This is the second book from the lead author, Raymond Perras. Teaming up with two leadership coaching clients (Marcel Bellefeuille from the world of professional sports, and Bruno Lindia, a CEO and business owner), Raymond has developed a unique and groundbreaking effort to bring forward some issues that do not often get dealt with in a leadership book. Based on the concept of Peak Performance (the right stuff, in the right amount, at the right time(TM)), this work provides a leader with insight into how to maximize results while reducing stress. It is not meant to confirm what a leader already knows but rather to serve as a basis to "contemplate" how a person who leads a team can help create an atmosphere that enables people to exceed expectations on a routine basis. Tapping their experiences in leading and coaching leaders, the authors have shared insights into some of the less glamorous aspects of leadership. The goal is to raise a leader's awareness to the fact that the team results can be improved when attention is paid to specific aspects of leadership in order to increase effectiveness. The implementation of a thinking process that ensures a continuous effort to seek peak performance ultimately enables everyone to exceed expectations. The book provides insight into the state of leadership, highlighting the results of research done in 2011 by Development Dimensions International, to guide the reader's focus toward some leadership traps that can torpedo the best efforts to be an effective leader. In a "three distinct statement" approach, the 10 chapters each address one of the activities or issues that the authors have identified as mission-critical for a leader based on their professional experience. Through a prioritized list from a brainstorm exercise on usual traps that can create a barrier to leadership success, the authors selected 10 activities that may make or break a leader on the journey to leadership excellence. The 10 activities are not in order of priority, only proposed as cautionary subjects for the leader who seeks to be effective in leading a team. The 10 activities are discussed by each of the authors on the basis of their work experience and are listed as follows in the Table of Content: 1 - The Right Stuff in the Right Amount at the Right Time: in an effort to minimize waste and maximize result, the leader is encouraged to make judicious choices in order to have sufficient resources to address the priority issues. 2 - The Myth of Empowerment: reflections are shared on how this term is used extensively but often is not reflected in the actual leadership activities. People are said to be empowered but the end result is responsibility without authority - delegation is not true delegation. 3 - Trust and The Boomerang Theory: this critical quality of a leader is discussed to bring awareness to the fact that a person cannot expect trust if he or she does not trust first. In the end, results are greatly reduced when trust is not in the mix. 4 Telling The Truth: the discussion centres on the common difficulty for a leader to tell it like it is. In a place where trust is lacking, stories are usually made up to cover or twist the truth with a negative impact on the team. 5 - Optimize Results with Joint Planning: too often, projects do not bring the desired end results and expectations are not fulfilled because information is held back or key people are not involved at the planning stage. Taking the time to listen and involve people usually will optimize results. 6 - Clarity of Vision Leads to Success: the point is that when a leader is not clear on the shape and form of a successful outcome, it is very difficult to provide guidance and leadership in an effective way. A clear vision takes time to formulate and a leader will do well to define his vision and share it with the team. Here we are talking about a vision of HOW we will work as a team. A project's outcome is usually quite clearly define
