"The distinguished Swedish anthropologist, author of 'Devilman's Jungle', here describes the lives, customs,and beliefs of a race of South American Indians who live on the Guajira Pe ninsula, the shores of which are washed by the warm Caribbean, giving it a different climate and nature from other, adjacent parts of the continent. The people , too, difer largely from most of their fellows in our day, for they are warlike, proud, and independent. They are the only mounted nomads among the natives of America and they are led by powerful chiefs. They have longest maintained their independence and their remarkable customs. They have been left in peace largely because their country is arid and unattractive, but also because they are not to be trifled with." - from the dustjacket.

Index. 8vo, illustrated blue and orange card covers, lettered in blue and wite. A volume in the Cambridge Cultural Social Studies series. "Distant Suffering examines the moral and political implications for a spectator of the distant suffering of others as presented through the media. What are the morally acceptable responses to the sight of suffering on television, for example, when the viewer cannot act directly to affect the circumstances in which the suffering takes place? Luc Boltanski argues that spectators can actively involve themselves and others by speaking about what they have seen and how they were affected by it. Developing ideas in Adam Smith's moral theory, he examines three rhetorical 'topics' available for the expression of the spectator's response to suffering: the topics of denunciation and of sentiment and the aesthetic topic. Thebook concludes with a discussion of a 'crisis of pity' in relation to mode rn forms of humanitarianism. A possible way out of this crisis is suggestedwhich involves an emphasis and focus on present suffering." (from the back cover). Contents : Part I. The Question of the Spectator: 1. The politics of pity; 2. Taking sides; 3. The moral spectator. Part II. The Topics of Suffering: 4. The topic of denunciation; 5. The topic of sentiment; 6. The critique of sentimentalism; 7. The aesthetic topic; 8. Heroes and the accursed. Part III. The Crisis of Pity: 9. What reality has misfortune?; 10. How realistic is action? Very good. 25.00

Pp (6),vii-xiv,(4),3-644 + 12 leaves of plates + 8folding maps (some large). 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. Dinges, (ed.), Arizona 100 : A Centennial Gathering of Essentia l Books on the Grand Canyon State, 9. "Eusebio Francisco Kino was the most picturesque missionary pioneer in all North America - explorerer, astronomer, cartographer, mission builder, ranchman, cattle king, and defender of the frontier. His biography is not merely the life story of a remarkable individual; it illuminates the culture history of a large part of the Western Hemisphere in its pioneer stages. Born it Italy, educated in Germany, sojourner in Spain and Mexico City, missionary and royal cosmographer in California, Kino was with the first expedition which ever reached the Pacific Oceanby crossing the Peninsula. This was in 1684, just when LaSalle landed his colony in Texas; when England annulled the charter of Massachussets and thereby raised a storm; when Philadelphia was three years old and Charleston was celebrating its fourteenth birthday. This California episode in Kino's romantic career closed with a pirate-chasing voyage on the Pacific to protect the treasure-laden Phillipine Galleon on its return from Manila to Mexico. For a quarter of a century Kino was the outstanding figure on the Sonora - Arizona - California frontier. A score of present-day towns and cities began their history as mission pueblos founded by him or directly under his influence. Over a vast area in the Southwest and adjacent Mexico, cattle ranching and the introduction of European cereals and fruits owe to him their beginnings. Wheat raising in Alta California, to give a single example, wasbegun with a handful of seed sent by Kino from Mexico across the Arizona d esert to a giant Yuma chieftain whom he had formerly visited on the Colorado River. Kino's maps of Western North America made him famous in Europe even in his day, and with or without acknowledgment they were copied there by cartographers for nearly a century after his death. His manuscripts now brought to light constitute by far the best contemporary historical record of the regions where he labored." - from the Preface. Contents : I. The Jesuits in New Spain. II. A Dream of the Orient. III. The Way to the Indies. IV. Old Mexico. V. Preliminaries. VI. La Paz. VII. San Bruno. VIII. Farther Afield. IX. Pioneer Life. X. Preparing for a Great Adventure. XI.

Index. 8vo, blue cloth, giltlettering to spine. The political pattern that has emerged as a result of the recent general elections puts the Indian federation to its supreme test. Will it withstand successfully the tensions that will inevitably follow or will it go under at this crucial moment. In this very timely book, Prof. Bombwall is concerned with examining the foundations of India's federal structure and assessing, in the light of historical facts, its ability or otherwise to stand up to the stresses and strains that the autonomous federating units can subject it to. The author's main purpose is to analyse and critically evaluate and interpret the major social and polltical forces, such as the Hindu-Muslim question. the problem of princely states, linguistic aspirations, and British policy, which, by their interplay, have contributed towards the growth of Indian federalism and helped shape its distinctive structure. The systematic historical survey of the origins and development of federal institutions and the textual analysis of the various acts which constitute landmarks in this growth, while very useful in themselves, are harnessed to this primary purpose. The concluding chapter on the problems and prospects of Indian federalism is an especially prophetic one in the contextof the recent changes in the political complexion of India." (from the dj) .

'i know who you are and I know what you've done!' A shot is fired and the two men struggle -- but John manages to escape. But in Jay Bonansinga's 'Head Case', freedom isn't the same as safety. John's days are a hideous waking nightmare. And his nights are filled with flashes of his past -- flashes filled with mutilated bodies and blood-splashed rooms. Suddenly, John is learning more about what he is than who heis. Looking foir help, he finds an ally in the wounded beauty Jessie Bales , a tough-as-nails private investigator who is willing to help John find out who he really is and what's really going on." - from the dustjacket.

"The USS Memphis, a dilapidated submarine that that should have been mothballed decades ago, has been given one last mission by the newly elected presiden t. The task: To sneak illegally into Russia's coastal waters and recon the leaking nuclear fuel containers hidden on the floor of the Arctic Ocean. More than just an environmental nightmare, this radioactive burial ground houses enough nuclear capability to destroy most of America's major cities. The Memphis's commander, Lowell Hardy, had been looking forward to flag rank and pleasant duty upon the sub's decommissioning. Now he is trapped in an inconceivably dangerous and illegal mission which could easily end his career, if not his life and the lives of his crew. But it's the crew who feel Hardy's tension as he tyrannizes everyone on board to ensure they'll be readyfor anything: Jerry Mitchell: a former naval pilot with political connecti ons, he is a novice submariner, unprepared for his demanding job as a weapons officer. Central to the Memphis's mission, Mitchell may be its greatest liability . . . Or its ultimate salvation. Dr. Joanna Patterson: The seniorcivilian scientist, appointed by and reporting to the president, she is a world-class expert on nuclear fuel contamination--and every bit as demanding as Hardy. Patterson and her partner, Dr. Emily Davis, soon find themselves battling flaring tempers, faulty machinery, lethal radioactivity, and theraging arctic seas. The submariners: Seething with rage at their Captain B ligh-like commander and the equally domineering Joanna Patterson, they are also at war with Jerry Mitchell, and one another. Like the captain, they feel they deserve better, not this antiquated relic, not this hostile scientist, not this novice weapons officer, and definitely not this disastrously dangerous mission. Nor is the mission what it seems. Lurking beneath the frigid, black, radioactive waters is a secret far more deadly than anything naval command could imagine--a secret so menacing the Russian Fleet is hell-bent on destroying the Memphis and all who sail in her." front dj flap.

"The story of a distinguished career in railway engineering from 1920 to 1968. Roland Bond, one of the last Chief Mechanical Engineerss to practise in steam, lived and workedwith locomotives through the period of their greatest development and was at the very centre of British Railways' changeover from steam to diesel andelectric motive power. He presents the technical side in an eminently read able form and at the same time draws on a wealth of personal experience to illustrate his story, to comment in a forthright but kindly manner on some of the many characters with whom he came into contact, and to question someof the decisions which determined the course of events within the national ised undertaking the is British Railways today. It is clear that such a manmust have an interesting story to tell, but all too few of similar backgro und are willing or able to put pen to paper and share their thoughts and experiences, their successes and their failures, with a wider public."

BONDRUP-NIELSEN, Soren. A Sound Like Water Dripping : In Search of the Boreal Owl . Kentville, NS: Gaspereau Press, 2009. First Printing. Pp. (10),11-236,(4). Illustrated in black and white. 8vo, decorated black card covers in white jacket. "In the spring of 1974, Soren Bondrup-Nielsen, a graduate student in biology, travelled to the boreal forest of northern Ontario in search of the tiny, elusive Boreal Owl. His supervisor had made a well-intended attempt to persuade him that there were easier ways to earn a degree than by searching for the proverbial needle in a haystack, but Bondrup-Nielsen's youthful enthusiasm would not be dampened. In subsequent field seasons in Ontario adn Alberta, Bondrup-Nielsen recorded and photographed Boreal Owls, studying their diet, habitat and courtship. His efforts resulted in the first nesting record for the species in Ontario. This book recounts the author's youthful adventures living in tents, cabins and bunkhouses and travelling by snowshoe, ski and bicycle, following his quest into the boreal heartland. While his research and methodology provde the framework, the story'strue focus lies in the author's sylvan encounters -- with birds, trees, vo les, coyotes, bears, moose, birders, loggers, tree planters -- and the jubilation of first love and self-discovery. Bondrup-Nielsen reminds usof the importance of curiosity, passion and persistence in the study of ornithologyand ecology." - from the front flap. Very good. 20.00

Duckworth, London, 1952, 
BONE, David W. The Queerfella. London : Gerald Duckworth & Co., (1952). First Printing. Pp (6),7-288. 8vo, blue cloth, gilt lettering to spine. Smith & Weller, Sea Fiction Guide 273. The Queerfella is Sir David Bone's first full-length novel. "In the early years of this century the full-rigged ship Bryn Gower, one of the last sailing ships in British registry, makes a voyage from Liverpool to Calcutta with a cargo of steel rails, and homeward to Dundee, laden with jute. Hero of the story—the Queerfella himself—is a young seaman, Duncan Stirrat, who joins the ship roaring drunk at Garston, thengradually, by the display of superior seamanship in emergency, wins promot ion to Third Mate and finally the chance to command. Adverse weather, the shifting of the cargo, a cyclone in the Bay of Bengal, a drug-taking Mate, quarrels and casualties among the rest of the crew—these are all circumstances which test Stirrat's competence to the utmost, and the crisis is reachedwhen the Bryn Gower is imperilled on a lee shore and as a last resort has to be sailed into Dundee harbour in a great gale by the Queerfella himself.Life on board a British sailing ship has never been so intimately and vivi dly described, even in Sir David Bone's earlier works. Sailors will follow every detail of the voyage with professional relish: while the ordinary reader, in addition to enjoying the suspense and excitements of the voyage, will be absorbed by the interplay of character at close quarters in a 1,200-ton windjammer, under the influence of those misfortunes and natural calamities which bring out for better or worse the true quality of a man."

Pp (4),v-vi,1-320,(2). Illustrated. 8vo, brown cloth, gilt lettering to front board and spine. Papers presented at a symposium held in Capri in April 1974 and sponsored by the Gruppo italiano di storia della scienza. "Mysticism, which looms so large today, was excluded from the history of science and medicine on the grounds that itwas irrelevant to the mainstream of scientific thought. Positivist histori ans of science directed their attention to that segment of the past that could be related to present concerns and contemporary methods. In recent years, however, doubt has been cast on the overall achievement of modern science and, consequently, the clarity of the distinction between wrong and rightsteps, between the false starts and the successful arrivals in the history of science has been blurred. This has made it easier for historians to tak e a further step in reappraising the historiography of science and to raisethe crucial question: are '"mystical" traditions and "modern" eements in t he Scientific Revolution antagonistic or, paradoxically, complementary extremes?" (from the dj). Contents : Introduction: trends in the interpretationof seventeenth century science (by William R. Shea); Chemical debates of t he seventeenth century: the reaction to Robert Fludd and Jean Baptiste van Helmont (by Allen G. Debus); Alchemy in the seventeenth century: the European and Italian scene (by Cesare Vasoli); New light on Galileo's lunar observations (by Guglielmo Righini); Dissertatio cum Professore Righini et Sidereo Nuncio (by Owen Gingerich); Terrestrial interpretations of lunar spots (by Willy Hartner); Marcello Malpighi and the founding of anatomical microscopy (by Luigi Belloni); Malpighi, Descartes and the epistemological problems of iatromechanism (by Francois Duchesneau); Galileo's new science of motion (by Stillman Drake); Sources of Galileo's early natural philosophy (by A.C.
