'A natural storyteller, David Meltzer gives us a vivid picture of both the colonizing bands of humans who moved into the Americas and the researchers who followed their footsteps from Alaska to Chile. This is an insider's account, told with a keen eye and sense of humor, as if Meltzer was there when discoveries were made and when disputes were aired - as, indeed, he often was.' -Ann Gibbons, author of The First Humans: the Race to Discover Our Earliest Ancestors.1.2kg before packing extra post may be required

'As far as I'm concerned, Perelman is the supreme lunatic humorist in the language, British or American. He seems to know the vocabulary of every English writer from Macaulay to Woody Allen and uses the most unpredictable mixtures of them to produce mock-solemn commentaries on the absurdities of our time.' -The Good Book Guide

Description:
This portrays Stephen's Dublin childhood and youth and, in do so, provides an oblique self-portrait of the young James Joyce. At its center are questions of origin and source, authority and authorship, and the relationship of an artist to his family, culture, and race. Exuberantly inventive in its style, the novel subtly and beautifully orchestrates the patterns of quotation and repetition instrumental in its hero's quest to create hos own character, he own language, life, and art:'to forge in the smithy of my soul the uncreated conscience of my race.'Edited with an Introduction and Notes by Seamus Deane.

Description:
Condition: clean copy.Content: Why does sacrifice, more than any other major religious institution, depend on gender dichotomy? Why do so many societies oppose sacrifice to childbirth, and why are childbearing women so commonly excluded from sacrificial practices? In this feminist study of relations between sacrifice, gender, and social organization, the author reveals sacrifice as a remedy for having been born of woman, and hence uniquely suited to establishing certain and enduring paternity. Drawing on examples of ancient and modern societies, the author synthesizes sociology of religion, ethnography, biblical scholarship, church history, and classics to argue that sacrifice legitimates and maintains patriarchal structures that transend men's dependence on women's reproductive powers.194 pages, notes, bibliography, index.
