Note: 
Norman Finkelstein has written a superb book about early aviation. He tells the story of the $25,000 prize that was offered to the first pilots who flew between New York to Paris and of the three airplanes who made it. Finkelstein chronicles their ordeals and achievements with meticulous details and wonderful quotes. Photos are appropriate index, source notes, and bibliography are thorough. However, the Jewish content is marginal in that only one of the contestants, Charles Levine, was Jewish.
