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.

Early on, Madalene and Herbert S. Jordan realized they had a common focus in life which could easily be summarized as "Duty, Honor, Country and God." Integrity was the hallmark characteristic of them both. When commitments were made, they were honored...without hesitation. With marriage, the commitments were in the wedding vows, never to be violated, and in religion, the commitment was in the baptismal rite which, again, was never to be violated. For Madalene Marie Driscoll, her commitment to God was made as a baby through the promises of her parents and God-parents. All through her life, she was devoted to the Catholic Church, its teachings and its obligations. She spent much time in prayer, and whenever possible spent time in adoration before the Holy Eucharist. At location after location, Army post after Army post, she sewed cassocks and surpluses for the altar boys. Indeed in most posts from the 1930's on, her boys were altar servers. She was dedicated to reading scripture and religious books, attending novenas and prayed the rosary on basically a daily basis. She frequently went to daily Mass and was a dedicated parishioner in the chapels and churches wherever she lived. Priests treasured her ability to get things done. She always hoped that one of her sons would become a priest, but was pleased to have a nephew and brother who were priests in the Passionist Order, Father Godfrey Poage and Father Louis Driscoll. Herbert Spencer Jordan was raised as a Congregationalist, but following the marriage to Madalene he attended Catholic Mass with the family on special occasions. After their son Bert's sudden death in the Korean War in September 1950, Herbert began studying with a Jesuit priest and in 1951 became a Roman Catholic. He embraced that commitment with total heart and soul, and became a stalwart convert, frequently reading religious books and a lot of religious history. In prayer life, they really became a pair as they had in marriage. Indeed, they embedded in their sons the characteristics which their parents manifested...INTEGRITY...DUTY...HONOR...COUNTRY...GOD. This manifestation showed up in many ways. In entering a car, Mom always quietly said a prayer. Dad never used a foul or profane word...and didn't allow anyone in his home or who worked for him to use any such language. Wherever they traveled with the Army, the two of them would become close friends with Catholic priests and sisters in their parishes. In Dad's case, this happened long before he became a Catholic. They were always generous in giving to church and charities. In fact, our family home often became the site for parish- or Army chapel-based activities, and especially for raising money for struggling churches during World War II. What a model set of parents!!

The Right Stuff, released in 1983, is the story of America's first attempts at the conquest of space. It's a film with the scope and scale of an epic, but filtered through the idiosyncratic, sceptical intelligence of maverick writer-director Philip Kaufman. Based on Tom Wolfe's bestselling novel, it contrasts the private code of the test pilots who broke the sound barrier with the manufactured celebrity of the astronauts who came from their midst. A film too close to satire to be in tune with the jingoism of 1980s America, its complexity and accomplishment have not been properly recognized. Tom Charity places The Right Stuff in its historical perspective, outlining the political context of the Space Race, Wolfe's original take on the material, and the fiercely conflicting ambitions for the film of director Philip Kaufman and original screenwriter William Goldman. Charity's lucid reading explores Kaufman's subversive adventurism, his mastery of the cinematic form and the way in which The Right Stuff combines the mythology of the Western with counter-cultural concerns to arrive at a richly nuanced account of both the folly and the heroism of post-war America.

Many hospitals in the 83 countries classified by the World Bank as Low & Low/Middle income struggle to provide safe anaesthesia. They face problems with unreliable equipment, poor electricity supplies and lack of oxygen that would close down most western hospitals. Equipment that can provide safe anaesthesia in these situations does exist, and this book explains what it is, how it works and how to use it. Systems that use air as carrier gas (Draw-over) and oxygen concentrators as oxygen sources are ideally suited for locations where infrastructure is lacking. The book also explains why a different approach is required, and how a western-trained anaesthetist can adapt to a period of service overseas. Dr Mike Dobson has run and taught courses on Anaesthesia for Developing Countries in Oxford and Africa for 36 years; much of the contents of this book derive from his extensive experience.
