The history of American firearms is inseparable from the history of the United States, for firearms have played crucial roles in the nation’s founding, westward expansion, and industrial, economic, and cultural development. This history unfolds in compelling words and images in A Legacy in Arms, a volume that draws upon the collections of the National Cowboy & Western Heritage Museum in Oklahoma City to trace the business and art of gun making from the early national period to the turn of the twentieth century. With more than 200 images—almost all in full color—A Legacy in Arms not only documents the inspiration and innovation of arms makers from individual artisans to mass producers, but also describes the development of decorative expression in the gun maker’s art. In an account both entertaining and enlightening, Richard C. Rattenbury details the development of commercial arms making, from the genesis of the Kentucky rifle to the arms of such iconic manufacturers as Colt, Remington, Smith & Wesson, Sharps, Marlin, and Winchester. Into this narrative he weaves the particulars of design evolution and the impact of mass production via the “American System.” The accompanying photographs and illustrations stand as eloquent testimony to the range and richness of the gun maker's craft—and its rightful place in the story of American industry and culture.

Der Porsche 911 ist ein einzigartiges Symbol für die grenzenlose Sehnsucht nach absoluter Überschreitung. Ulf Poschardt umkreist den 911er als Phänomen der Zeit-, Kultur-, Technik- und Designgeschichte und bekennt seine Liebe zur persönlichen Autonomie auf vier Rädern. Jerry Seinfeld fährt ihn, Boris Johnson bewundert ihn, Volker Schlöndorff hasst ihn und Andreas Baader hat ihn sogar gestohlen. Der Porsche 911 bewegt die Welt. In Deutschland von manchen als Bonzenschale verachtet, gilt er in den USA als Lieblingsauto des -linksliberalen Intellektuellen. Der 911er wurde nicht nur von einer der faszinierendsten und umstrittensten Unternehmerfamilien erfunden, er verfügt auch über eine unvergleichliche technische Genese. Zudem ist er ein glänzendes Beispiel einer Designtradition, die in »form follows function« kein modisches Dogma sieht, sondern Ausdruck schwäbischen Pragmatismus war. Ulf Poschardt legt den Porschefahrer auf die Couch und stellt fest, dass ein bisschen Narzissmus schon okay ist. In diesem Sinne: Nicht alle können und müssen Porsche fahren, aber das »Lebensgefühl 911er« als Geste der Freiheit und des Mutes, alles zu geben, ist für jeden da.
