Originally published in 1992, National Rifle Association: Money, Firepower & Fear traces the history and political development of the National Rifle Association of America (NRA) from its founding in 1871 "to promote rifle practice" to its transformation into the mighty gun lobby that we know today. Described as a "chilling expose" by Publishers Weekly upon its publication, National Rifle Association: Money, Firepower & Fear offers not only a detailed review of the political battles that defined the organization from the 1930s through the 1980s, but also pulls back the curtain on the inner workings of the organization. From 1977's "Cincinnati Revolt" in which Second Amendment fundamentalists led by Harlon Carter and Neal Knox took control of the organization to a series of high-profile leadership scandals that engulfed the NRA in the wake of Carter's departure, National Rifle Association: Money, Firepower & Fear offers the definitive critical look at the NRA during this period.
