Synopsis: David slew Goliath with his slingshot: for millennia that was the norm, as men used a variety of non-explosive weapons to fire small stones and carefully rounded bullets of clay, glass, and even steel and lead. This unusual study explores in practical detail the many ways, old and new, in which man shot projectiles without recourse to gunpowder. They include the bow and arrow, a favorite for the last 10,000 years; pump-up air guns; blowpipes; catapults; and homemade lead musketballs. There’s information on ammunition and velocity, as well as a lively personal narrative filled with humor and the spirit of experimentation.

About the Author: Richard Middleton is Reader in American History at The Queen's University, Belfast. He is the author ofThe Bells of Victory: The Pitt-Newcastle Ministry and the Conduct of the Seven Years' War: 1757-1762(1985).

Book Description Skyhorse Publishing. New York. (2005) 2007 2nd US edition. 4to paperback. Ppxii,212. B/w line illustrations, bibliography. Mint new copy. "This book explores in practical detail many of the ways, old and new, in which man can shoot missiles by means of his own force, without the aid of explosives. There is currently a surge of interest in making primitive archery equipment. The author has been building bows and shooting flint-tipped arrows since adolescence, but the addiction has led to stronger stuff: to experiments with making and shooting pump-up airguns, stone bows and home-made lead musketballs. Middleton's narrative is lively, humorous and full of exciting information and experimentation. In this quirky and clever new book, he invites you to share the thrills of his garden shed experiments with him." (Previous price £12.95). Seller Inventory # 24946
