Farmall tractors are an American farm fixture. Drive through any rural area in the country and it won't take long to spot a Farmall M or H, its red paint faded to rust and spotted with the chips, dents, and dings that hard work inevitably bring. This book traces the roots of Farmall, from the McCormick dynasty to the first Farmall, the appearance of the F-Series and Letter Series, and ultimately, to the effective end of International with the CNH merger. Includes an appendix of Production Dates and Quantities.- Includes new photography of popular models- Includes updates on Case-IH merger as well as re-introduction of Farmall and McCormick brandsAbout the AuthorLee Klancher grew up a few miles outside of the small town of Brill in northern Wisconsin, and has turned his rural roots and passion for publishing into a way of life. Back in 1995, when first approached to do this book, he viewed tractors as useful tools for hauling wood, dragging out deer, and harvesting maple sap. Since that time, he has learned that tractors are prized by collectors for their ability to clutter up the yard, obliterate the paycheck, and raise hell with one's spouse. This is Lee's sixth book, depending on how you count. When not traveling the world in his tireless quest for the perfect mini-corn dog, Lee is working on a follow-up to his last book, Tractor in the Pasture.

The legendary 1967 Camaro was Chevy's answer to Ford's Mustang, and they've been duking it out ever since. The early 1960s saw American auto manufacturers desperately trying to sell cars to the emerging baby-boom market. Chevrolet attained some success with its sporty Corvair Monza. Ford responded first with a sportier Falcon, then with its grand-slam, home-run pony car, the Mustang. At first, Chevrolet hesitated to abandon the technologically advanced Corvair, but when it finally entered the pony car market in 1967, its new Camaro instantly became one of the most iconic cars of the classic muscle-car era, a serious competitor for the Mustang. Since then, some of the most important performance cars in American history have been Camaro models: RS, SS, Z28, and IROC-Z. When muscle cars went dormant for a generation, it was once again the classic pony cars that jump-started American performance. The battle that raged between Camaro and Mustang in the 1980s rejuvenated the US auto industry's interest in high-performance muscle cars. The Camaro lost its way in the 1990s, with Chevrolet pursuing technological advances and Ford pursuing classic American muscle. As was the case in the 1960s, Ford's muscular pony car trounced Chevrolet's technologically advanced sporty car in the race that mattered most: showroom sales. The Mustang thrived while the Camaro left the scene. Fortunately, that departure was only temporary. Chevrolet introduced a twenty-first-century Camaro in 2010, and it has become one of Chevrolet's most popular models. With stunning photography from author Mike Mueller and never-before-seen archival photography from partner General Motors, Camaro: Fifty Years of Chevy Performance chronicles the Camaro's rich history, from the early attempts to reach the youth market in the 1960s, through the potent and turbulent years of the classic muscle-car era, the resurgence of muscle in the 1980s, the sad decline of the 1990s, and the triumphant rebirth of the new car in this new millennium.

Securing Outer Space

The challenges that space poses for political theory are profound. Yet until now, the exploration and utilization of space has generally reflected – but not challenged – the political patterns and impulses which characterized twentieth-century politics and International Relations. This edited volume analyses a number of controversial policies, and contentious strategies which have promoted space activities under the rubric of exploration and innovation, militarization and weaponization, colonization and commercialization. It places these policies and strategies in broader theoretical perspective in two key ways. Firstly, it engages in a reading of the discourses of space activities: exposing their meaning-producing practices; uncovering the narratives which convey certain space strategies as desirable, inevitable and seamless. Secondly, the essays suggest ways of understanding, and critically engaging with, the effects of particular space policies. The essays here seek to ‘bring back space’ into the realm of International Relations discourse, from which it has been largely removed, marginalized and silenced. The various chapters do this by highlighting how activities in outer space are always connected to earth-bound practices and performances of the every day. Securing Outer Space will be of great interest to students of space power, critical security studies and IR theory.
