Culture and commitment; a study of the generation gap by Margaret Mead( Book )

21 editions published between 1970 and 1997 in 5 languages and held by 2,618 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Preface: "This book is based on what I have learned about the way human cultures are transmitted and changed, as I have watched primitive cultures come into the modern world during my last fifty years of field work in the Pacific. Since the first edition of this book, I have made three trips to the Pacific, revisiting the Manus, whom I first studied in 1928, and revisited four other groups in various stages of transition. In between I have attended international conferences and discussed issues like food and population, transition and change-problems of the world-with people from many countries. At Columbia University I have taught a great variety of students, and I have lectured to and held discussions with student audiences all over the country and carefully considered their questions. It is on these experiences that I base my statements. As a cultural anthropologist, I am concerned with the cultural aspects of the generation gap and generational change and their implications for the world community. It was to these concerns that the old pages in the book were addressed, and the new chapters are addressed to them also."--Margaret Mead

Three and a half million years ago, two upright figures walked together across the Laetoli desert in Tanzania, their footsteps captured forever in volcanic ash. Based on the new Hall of Human Biology and Evolution at the American Museum of Natural History, the most extensive exhibition of the subject ever designed, The Human Odyssey examines how both significant fossil finds and startling new theories have been used by scientists to trace the path of human evolution. Drawing from the latest research in both the laboratory and the field, some of the most provocative questions scientists have ever asked are answered: Where did we come from, and how did we become what we are today

Welcome to the genome : a user's guide to the genetic past, present, and future by Rob DeSalle( Book )

2 editions published between 2004 and 2005 in English and held by 1,262 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Welcome to the Genome takes you right into the thick of today's most cutting-edge science and its far-reaching implications. Authors Rob DeSalle and Michael Yudell have written a book which clearly explains the ongoing saga of our attempts to understand the mystery of biology's Rosetta Stone and use its code to better our lives." "This book employs an understandable style and full-color illustrations to provide insights into the complex science involved. It delves into the past discoveries that led to the sequencing of the human genome; it presents the challenges facing today's scientists and society and culture in general; and it considers the future possibilities of the developing genome era. Social issues, particularly questions of ethics, receive special attention, covering an important area too often overshadowed by science and technology."--Jacket
