Thommasen,Harvey and Hutchings,Kevin
This book represents the next step in West Coast bird books, a book that moves beyond simple identification to probe deeper into the lives of our feathered friends. Richly illustrated with excellent photographs, it examines birds in their environments, noting what they do, and where and when they can be found. In an engaging, familiar style enlivened by the authors' personal experience and highlighted with intriguing facts by renowned bird biologist Wayne Campbell, this is an indispensable tool not just for learning how to find coastal birds, but also for gaining an understanding of their natural history. 222pp.

Black, Georgina Dopico
In "Perfect Wives, Other Women", Georgina Dopico Black examines the role played by women's bodies - specifically the bodies of wives - in Spain and Spanish America during the Inquisition. In her quest to show how both the body and soul of the married woman became the site of anxious inquiry, Dopico Black mines a variety of Golden Age texts for instances in which the era's persistent preoccupation with racial, religious, and cultural otherness was reflected in the depiction of women. Subject to the scrutiny of a remarkable array of gazes-inquisitors, theologians, religious reformers, confessors, poets, playwrights, and, not least among them, husbands - the bodies of perfect and imperfect wives elicited diverse readings.Dopico Black reveals how imperialism, the Inquisition, inflation, and economic decline each contributed to a correspondence between the meanings of these human bodies and 'other' bodies, such as those of the Jew, the Moor, the Lutheran, the degenerate, and whoever else departed from a recognised norm. The body of the wife, in other words, became associated with categories separate from anatomy, reflecting the particular hermeneutics employed during the Inquisition regarding the surveillance of otherness. Dopico Black's compelling argument will engage students of Spanish and Spanish American history and literature, gender studies, women's studies, social psychology and cultural studies. 307pp. N.B. Black ink mark across bottom foredge of pages. Content unaffected.

Lipton, Edward P. (editor)
Human rights, of which the freedom of religion is a central component, are promised by most governments on planet Earth. But promises are promises, are promises. In real life, religious liberty is far from a universal fact. This book surveys the countries of Africa based on U.S. State Department reports and is augmented by a current bibliography and a useful index.
