Rose, Gene
While nearly all of America's major rivers have been compromised, few have been so misused as the San Joaquin. In its comparatively brief history, it has been dammed, diverted, and depleted beyond comprehension. Here, in colourful and informative prose, veteran author Gene Rose identifies the forces and figures who have shaped, altered, and corrupted this once mighty waterway which some now view as 'a river betrayed'. 150pp.

Barnes, Ruth; Branfoot, Crispin
This book explores the role of pilgrimage in Christianity, Islam, Judaism, and the religions that developed in India. It was written to coincide with an exhibition at the Ashmolean Museum, Oxford (2006), but it is not a catalogue of the display. It is intended to be read independently, as it explores attitudes to pilgrimage in the different religions; it also includes accounts of individual pilgrimage, both historical and contemporary. Common themes emerge, regardless of religious affiliation. The departure from daily life is part of all pilgrimages. Along the way, the journey may lead past lesser shrines and sacred landscapes. The visit to the central shrine, the final goal of the journey, culminates in an intense spiritual experience. Reliquaries and souvenirs many help to hold on to this moment and transfer its power back into everyday life. Pilgrimage survives as an important aspect of religious awareness and identification to this day. 132pp.

Whelan, Richard
Slight crease to the spine. Slight crease to head of d/j spine. The author describes the causes, events and consequences of a conflict he calls "a world war in miniature". He addresses such questions as why the Truman administration decided to intrude militarily in Korea after merely protesting when Eastern Europe and China fell to the communists, why the United States risked causing World War III to save a repressive regime and why the Americans settled for something less than the resounding victory they had come to expect. In Whelan's analysis, the war had momentous repercussions for NATO, the UN, Russia, China and the arms race. And it provided the prologue to America's next war in Asia - Vietnam. 428pp.
