Minear, Tish and Limon, Janet
The Ancient Pueblo people, also known mistakenly as the Anasazi, were a prehistoric Native American culture located around the present day 'Four Corners' areas of the Southwest United States. This area encompasses the Colorado Plateau, and extends from central New Mexico to southern Nevada, Utah and Arizona. The topography of this panoramic region varies greatly, including high plateaus, vast horizontal mesas, sleep walled canyons, and sandstone windows and bridges sculpted by water erosion. In cliff areas with harder stone, rock overhangs formed and served as building sites for adobe dwellings often accessible only by rope or rock climbing. Numerous national parks and monuments such as Mesa Verde, Grand Canyon, Sunset Crater and Chaco Canyon provide stunning scenery and a well-preserved window into the area's fascinating prehistoric past.Divided geographically, this expanded edition includes tips on visiting reservations, attending ceremonies, buying arts and crafts, and adjusting to 'Indian time'. The revised format provides easy reader access to a wealth of information, and includes dozens of new sites, selected places to stay, eat and shop, a calendar of various powwows and other tribal ceremonies, a section on language, points of interest, maps, and 16 pages of full colour photographs. This book also examines locations such as the Gila Cliff Dwellings Monument, the Taos Pueblo, and The Denver Art Museum, which houses an extensive collection of North American native art. 481pp.

Yarnold, Barbara M.
This book is concerned with two decades 1970-1990 of adjudications by the lower federal courts -- district and circuit courts of appeals and the US Supreme Court -- in 'religious freedoms' cases, or cases which relate to the First Amendment's 'free-exercise' and 'establishment' clauses. There are a number of reasons for dealing with these two clauses simultaneously. The first is pragmatic: most judicial decisions which deal with religious liberties discuss both clauses. Second, from a more theoretical perspective, the free exercise and establishment clauses share a common purpose, namely protecting the liberties of religious individuals and the non-religious. Finally, it is based upon an underlying scepticism about the importance of rules, and even the existence of rules, concepts which have emerged in the public law area and among legal realists. One of the major research objectives of this study is to test, in the context of religious liberty cases (or cases which involve the free exercise or establishment clauses), cases which involve major issues, the various predictions of the general theory of public law. In an effort to further understand politically activist judges, the analysis will also evaluate whether the activists are more likely than the non-activists to render decisions which favour interest groups, are responsive to judicial constituents, and are highly partisan. In addition to improving the political analysis of court cases, this book also examines other facets of the judicial environment which may also help to understand decisions in cases involving religious liberties. The dependent variable in all cases is whether the judicial decision is one which is pro-religion. The additional factors which will be included relate to arguably relevant factors relating to the judges including: their religious affiliations (or lack of religious belief), their ages, and their gender. Sample cases drawn from the district courts will help to introduce the data set employed in this book of religious freedoms cases. 139pp.
