C. MICHAEL HIAM, PhD, is the author of A Monument to Deceit: Sam Adams and the Vietnam Intelligence Wars and Eddie Shore and That Old Time Hockey. He lives in Newton, Massachusetts.
"A diligent researcher, Mr. Hiam quotes judiciously and generally has an eye for a good story and the detail that brings it to life. Dirigible Dreams is a work of solid reportage, illustrated with enchanting photographs of the monster crafts."-- "Wall Street Journal" "Hiam's thesis offers a novel way to think about the history of innovation: that useful technologies sometimes die off for circumstantial reasons. As it turns out, the story of dirigibles offers another insight as well. If a technology is impressive enough, it can have a propaganda value far beyond its real importance."-- "Boston Globe" "A fascinating book -- that is superbly illustrated and beautifully written."-- "Aviation News"
