Glock: The Rise of America’s Gun.

About the Book

GLOCK: The Rise of America’s Gun tells the story of the iconic handgun of modern times. It is a tale of cops and crime, of Hollywood violence and hip-hop bravado, of NRA politicking and the failure of gun control in Washington. In the space of a few short years beginning in the 1980s, Gaston Glock, an obscure Austrian engineer, pushed aside storied American brands such as Smith & Wesson and Colt to become the dominant handgun maker in the United States, a country in love with firearms. GLOCK: The Rise of America’s Gun shows how innovative design, genius marketing, uncanny timing, and dark glamour combined to make the boxy black Glock semiautomatic pistol a legend in its own time.
