Right Angles and Other Obstinate Truths
Michael M. Bates
0595320481
July 2004
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
Right Angles and Other Obstinate Truths is a fascinating collection of commentaries on current issues, famous and infamous individuals, passing fads, Baby Boomer memories and personal experiences. The more than 70 short essays by Michael M. Bates are provocative and may strike some as controversial. They all appeared in his regular column in the southwest suburban Chicago Reporter Newspapers. There aren't many books that run the gamut from Adams (John) to Zorro. This one does, and includes observations on topics as disparate as the IRS, Banned Books Week, pet psychics, the Chicago Cubs, Wal-Mart and eternity. You may find the author's views extreme, repugnant, wildly illogical, disgracefully partisan, inconsistent or narrow minded. They are never boring. ******** "When the United States began, the federal government...

Johnny Bates
0595357962
July 2005
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
In the early transition from the long-lived flintlock system, handgun development closely paralleled that of the long arms. With the advent of the revolving pistols, however; came patents that created monopolies in revolver production and the through-bored cylinder necessary for self-contained metallic cartridges. The caplock revolvers took on a separate evolution and remained state of the art long after the widespread appearance of cartridge firing rifles and shotguns. They rode in the holsters of of explorers and adventurers across the world and granted safe conduct in the back–alleys of the Industrial West right up until the last quarter of the 19th Century. Handguns possess a mystique distinctly different from that of other firearms. They are tools of personal empowerment-chosen by their owners to provide...

Shakespeare Survey is a yearbook of Shakespeare studies and production. Since 1948 Survey has published the best international scholarship in English and many of its essays have become classics of Shakespeare criticism.
