Credited with both unifying China and tormenting its citizenry, Qin Shi Huangdi, the "first emperor of China," is one of the most controversial leaders in the nation's history.

"Among the overwhelming amount of inventions and patents Thomas Edison held, none was as controversial than the first chair used for electrocution. The late 1880s begins the "War of the Currents," as two rival technologies - AC and DC - battle it out for dominance in the utility industry. Edison wants to prove that Westinghouse's alternating current is much deadlier than the Edison direct current. To prove the dangers of "AC," Edison builds an electric chair powered by Westinghouse's AC system and axe murdered William Kemmler is its first victim - in an extended and horrific death. Thomas Edison's electric chair is a machine of dark design that is still being used today."--Http://

Tactical to practical( Visual )

18 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"From the Jeep and RADAR to the interstate highway system, countless things that we take for granted in our everyday lives got their start as top-secret (or at least strictly military) programs. Tactical to Practical shows how they move into common use, talking to the engineers and scientists who invent, refine and transform the machines and technologies, as well as the people who use them. Former "Top Gun" Navy pilot and Survivor Marquesas veteran Hunter Ellis leads this look at three fascinating examples of the Tactical to Practical path. From Wolfpacks to tourist excursions, submarines have made an incredible evolution. New materials have changed everything from the parkas skiers wear to the way airplanes are made. And radar has revolutionized both warfare and the commercial aviation industry. Each story is highlighted by important examples of the technology in action and interviews with experts in the field."--Publisher's website
