Deloria, Vine, Jr.
This work brings together over 25 years of the work of Vine Deloria, Jr, once dubbed "the red man's Ralph Nader," now regarded as one of the most important living Native American figures in the late 1990s. For the past 30 years, Deloria has offered contributions to understanding the complexity of religion in America. In his writings he recognizes the spiritual desperation and religious breakdown in the contemporary situation, and provides the groundwork to get people to examine what they actually believe and how they must put those beliefs into practice. The essays in this collection express Deloria's concern for the religious dimensions and implications of human existence. His writings are engaged within a theoretical system of physical, not ideological, space, and ultimately give voice to this intellectual passion by calling into question our controversial religious institutions, commitments, worldviews, freedoms and experiences. 311pp. N.B.

Edited By Coulton,G.R. And De Belleroche,J.
In situ hybridization has developed as a means of localizing specific DNA and RNA sequences within tissues. The great strength of this approach is the ability to relate the distribution of specific nucleic acids with cell structures and the protein products of the target gene by means of immunohistochemistry. Complementary DNA, RNA or oligo-nucleotide probes, suitably labelled, are hybridized to specific DNA or RNA targets within tissues. The spatial information thus obtained has contributed greatly to our understanding of such diverse areas of research as gene mapping, viral infection, cytogenetics, protein synthesis, prenatal diagnosis and tissue grafting. This book is not intended as another recipe book, although it does describe theoretical and practical aspects of the technology. Rather, the authors critically describe the contribution made by in situ hybridization to specific areas of medical research. 116pp.Slight fade mark to base of spine.

Temple-Raston, Dina
This is the compelling story of America's first home-grown terrorist cell traces six young Yemeni Americans from a New York state backwater to an Al-Qaeda training camp. They called themselves the Arabian Knights, just a gang of high schoolers who spray-painted the name onto the back of their jackets, Arab hip hop asserting itself in the grimy side streets of Lackawanna - a depressed neighbourhood in a run-down steel town in upper New York state. Then, in Spring of 2001, they became something more. A handful of Arabian Knights decided to go on an adventure. They told their parents they were travelling to Pakistan to study at a madrassa. The elders in the neighbourhood saw their new interest in Islam as a positive step, an alternative to hanging around a town where job prospects - any prospects - were so few. But their adventure became more dramatic. There was a clandestine border crossing into Afghanistan, stays in jihadi guesthouses and then training at an infamous Al-Qaeda camp outside Kandahar. Then, just weeks after the last of the Arabian Knights returned to Lackawanna, two planes crashed into the World Trade Center towers. What had been a lark, a religious curiosity, took on a new meaning. Suddenly, six guys from Lackawanna became much more. To former US Attorney General John Ashcroft, the Lackawanna Six were the country's first home-grown Islamic terror cell. The city of Lackawanna and local parents were shocked. They couldn't believe that Al-Qaeda could claim any of their own. Dina Temple-Raston has retraced their journey, discovered what lured them into an Al-Qaeda camp and a face-to-face meeting with Osama bin Laden, and tracks their return to the US. Some of the men were just grateful to be home. Others considered the world through newly radicalized eyes288pp..
