Readers and travellers are guided to more than 200 homes and historic sites of America's greatest writers - from the Jack London Ranch in northern California to William Faulkner's home in Oxford, Mississippi. Clear driving directions and visitor instructions are combined with unique titbits about each site and author, such as the story of Jack London's custom-made furniture and the roll top desk and Dictaphone on display in his study. Literary enthusiasts are guided to the site of Thoreau's bean field, where they can poke around an exact replica of his cabin. They can drop in on Margaret Mitchell's recently restored Atlanta apartment or visit John Steinbeck's haunts in the cosy California seaside town of Pacific Grove. This family-oriented, user-friendly guide teaches literary folk about writers' work, their philosophies, and the forces that compelled them to write. All 50 states are represented, and the literary sites are divided by geographic regions.518pp.

Edited By Allen,Garland E. And MacLeod,Roy M.
This book highlights not only aspects of the career of Everett Mendelsohn, one of the premier historians of biology of our age, but also a wide range of topics that are now grouped under the general heading of science studies. This broad collection includes articles on the relations between science and the military, science as narrative, natural history and conservation, Marxism and science, the Human Genome Project, and the relation of philosophy to the study of embryonic development in the 18th century. This book is essential not only for those who admire Professor Mendelsohn's work but also for those who want a slice of the current field of science studies. The main readership of this volume consists of historians of science, technology, and medicine, and sociologists of science. The book will also appeal to philosophers of science and biologists. Those interested in Middle Eastern studies will find the discussion of Professor Mendelsohn's political work in this area, as well as the article dealing with his activism in general, of considerable interest.388pp.Volume 228 in the Boston Studies in the Philosophy of Science Series.

Mitchell, C. R.
An examination of human behaviour within the framework of conflict, in which the author attempts to answer questions pertaining to conflict by examining common structures and processes found in human conflicts in many settings. He demonstrates how such common features reveal themselves in conflicts as ostensibly different as international war and interpersonal disagreements in organizations. Ideas and insights are drawn from a wide variety of disciplines, including political science, international relations, social psychology and the sociology of conflict and are combined in a framework that provides a guide to the genesis and course of contemporary disputes, whether between states, communities, classes or families. Particular emphasis is laid upon the complex and interlocking structure of conflicts and the way in which internal differences affect the ability of adversaries to prosecute a conflict successfully, or conclude a compromise peace satisfactorily. Attention is also directed towards the psychology of "being in conflict" and how this affects the adversaries view of others, the behaviour used in this conflict and the range of outcomes considered feasible and acceptable. The study also attempts to deal with the problems of peacemaking for third parties and analyzes the type of actions open to potential intermediaries attempting to end or manage disruptive disputes. 355pp. N.B.
