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.

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.

A comprehensive study of the training aircraft used to transition the United States military into the jet age. At the end of World War II, high-performance jets with unfamiliar operating characteristics were replacing propeller-driven airplanes. As accident rates soared, the Air Force and Navy recognized the need to develop new trainers to introduce fledgling as well as experienced pilots to jet flight. The first step occurred in 1948, when a two-seat jet trainer, the T-33, was developed with private funds. It was welcomed by the Air Force and subsequently the Navy, allowing both services to start building modern air arms. Over time other new trainers were developed to serve specific needs while innovations, such as high fidelity simulators, accelerated the process, reduced costs, and increased safety. The evolution continues today with the goal of producing high-quality newly winged aviators for assignment to operational squadrons.
