Edited By Witkowski, Jan A. And Inglis, John R.
When Charles Davenport published Heredity in Relation to Eugenics in 1911, he advanced his ideas of where genetics would go in the rest of the 20th century. In this volume, a group of prominent scientists take some of Davenport's themes-mental illness, human evolution, nature and nurture-and discuss them in a 21st century context. Davenport's original book is reprinted along with the essays. Contents: Complete facsimile reprint of Heredity in Relation to Eugenics by Charles Davenport; Additional Essays: Preface (Matt Ridley); Davenport Biography (Jan Witkowski); Davenport' s Eugenics (Elof Carlson); Human Variation/Evolution/Founder Effects (Douglas Wallace); Psychiatric Disorders (Daniel Weinberger and David Goldman); Behavioral Disorders (Lindsey Kent and Simon Baron Cohen); Using Genetics (Philip Reilly); Insights from the Human Genome: Genes and Variation (Maynard Olson); Genetics and Equality (Ronald Dworkin); Genetics and Human Nature (Lewis Wolpert).298pp.

Williams, Terry Tempest
This unusual book is an introduction to Navajo culture by a storyteller. Steeped in the lore of the Navajo reservation, where she worked as a teacher, the author came to see Navajo legend and ritual as touchstones for evaluating her own experience. She presents them here as a means for all people to locate their own history, traditions, and sense of how to live well.

Edited By Osiewacz,Heinz D.
This Volume of the Series is devoted to aging at the organismic level. Different levels of organisation, ranging from single cell organisms (yeast) to humans are included. In addition to the currently most important model systems like yeast, filamentous fungi, Caenorabditis elegans, flies and mice, other systems like sponges and plants are discussed. Most importantly, research using different aging models can be expected to unravel the most important basic mechanisms of aging that are conserved in all species. In addition, a critical discussion of what can be expected from this kind of strategy for the understanding of aging in humans is included. This book serves as excellent reading for graduate students, scientists in medical research, medical doctors, researchers in pharmacological fields, researchers, biologists, and experts of this area.276pp.Biology of Aging and Its Modulation Volume 4.
