Badcock, Christopher
This book is an account of the nature and significance of human sociobiology. Assuming no prior knowledge, it explains the basic concepts of the subject in simple, accessible language, and illustrates them by numerous examples from the everyday experience of past and present times. Christopher Badcock argues that, properly understood, modern Darwinian insights into reproductive success, natural selection and social behaviour are wholly consistent with the idea and existence of free will, self-consciousness and sacrifice, and with individual and group morality. He reveals the surprising extent to which evolutionary theory can explain aspects not only of male-female relations and of the interaction between parents and children, but characteristically female behaviour in relation to fertility, abortion, concealed ovulation and menstrual synchronation. He also presents a challenging new theory of male homosexuality in the context of the wider question of masculinity and sexual conflict. Sociobiology is a controversial field and its practitioners have been accused of reducing human beings to packages of programmed genes. Christopher Badcocok shows by contrast, that it has much to offer students of human behaviour at every stage of cultural and individual development. 303pp. N.B. Some HIGHLIGHTING and annotation throughout. Reading crease to spine. Slant to book.

Young, M.
This is a photo-essay book in praise of the ancient art of tattooing as an expression of the sacred in the contemporary world. Exploring new potentials of the skin art that has risen out of the popular tattoo culture of the streets, "The Alchemy and the Agony" takes the tattoo experience beyond the obvious and popular. This tatouage is transpersonal, even universal, an experience of transformation both primal and sublime. This is the natural alchemy that results when sacred images are emblazoned on the canvas of the human body. 206pp.

Mohiaddin, R.H.; Longmore, D.B.
Magnetic resonance is a safe, non-invasive technique which can be used to produce high resolution, thin tomographic slices in any chosen plane, or true three-dimensional blocks of information. It has become the method of choice for studying the central nervous system, the vertebral column and many joints, but has not yet gained general acceptance in the cardiovascular system, although there are techniques for overcoming the problems of cardiac movement to produce excellent cardiovascular images. The purpose of this book is to provide the student and radiologist with a reference which can be used to identify the major structures in the body, bearing in mind that in each region a more detailed high-resolution study can usually be obtained by specialized units. The illustrations, each of which is accompanied by an explanatory line drawing, are soft tissue images based on the water content rather than the familiar X-ray shadowgram of mainly hard tissues. 202pp.
