Who killed King Tut? : using modern forensics to solve a 3,300-year-old mystery by Michael R King( Book )

5 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 701 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Using historical facts, forensic information, and archaeological evidence, the authors present their thesis about who murdered Egypt's most famous pharaoh, Tutankhamen. Two law enforcement specialists in forensics and the psychology of criminal behavior have applied sophisticated crime-solving techniques used in the investigation of contemporary murders to the ancient mystery of how a legendary Egyptian pharaoh met his untimely death. With their unique perspectives, Detectives King and Cooper evaluate evidence that has long been overlooked by specialists in Egyptology and archaeology. After considering natural causes, accident, and suicide, the authors come to the conclusion that Tut's death was most likely a murder

Teaching multi-cultural populations: five heritages by James Champion Stone( Book )

7 editions published between 1971 and 1972 in English and Undetermined and held by 420 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is an attempt to help fill the tremendous gap that presently exists between teachers' will to become more skillful with multicultural student populations and the as-yet short supply of the quality materials they urgently need in order to do so. Its organizing principle is that, inasmuch as America is an immense living laboratory for interaction among diverse peoples, it ought to be possible to assemble a book that mirrors this plurality--in a way that will sensitize present and future teachers to the needs and the opportunities created by cultural pluralism in the classroom. Essays have been selected which provide information, realism, and insight. They are arranged under five headings corresponding to America's leading ethnic minorities: black, Puerto Rican, Mexican-American, American Indian, and Asian-American. It has been especially sought to present material which is pragmatically based rather than purely descriptive. In general, each cultural heritage is explored according to a scheme beginning with a broad cultural-historical view of the group; then narrowing to a more contemporary social and familial focus; and, finally moving with the child of this generation into the educational context of presentday American schools. An extensive appendix of further resources is included at the end of the volume. (Author/JM)
