The global warming desk reference by Bruce E Johansen( )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2002 in English and held by 2,719 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With global temperatures rising rapidly during the past quarter century, ʺinfrared forcing, ʺ popularly known as the ʺgreenhouse effect, ʺ has attracted worldwide concern. This book is a concise, college-level compendium of the research on global warming. It surveys the scientific consensus on the issue, describes recent findings and also considers the arguments of skeptics who doubt that global warming is a threat. Suggesting that the effects of global warming can be seen in the melting of glaciers and the dying of coral reefs, the work summarizes the potential impact on human health and on plants and animals worldwide. Concluding with possible solutions, the book contains one of the most comprehensive bibliographies on the subject

The dirty dozen : toxic chemicals and the earth's future by Bruce E Johansen( Book )

10 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 1,852 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study examines the history, industrial uses, and harmful effects of the twelve most commonly used organochloride chemicals. All have been fully or partially banned by the Stockholm Protocol, an international treaty signed by about 120 countries in December 2000. Among the twelve are the dioxins (the active ingredient in Agent Orange) and polychlorinated byphenyls (PCBs), which are toxic in minute quantities. Johansen pays special attention to the Inuit of the Arctic, where these chemicals have been bio-accumulating to dangerous levels, moving up the food chain to a degree of toxicity that some Inuit mothers are no longer able to safely breast-feed their infants."--Jacket
Silenced! : academic freedom, scientific inquiry, and the First Amendment under siege in America by Bruce E Johansen( )

7 editions published in 2007 in English and held by 1,488 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book is about people whose ideological circumstances have found them opposing established beliefs in our times - scholars advocating the Palestinian cause in a very hostile environment, for example, as well as climate scientists defending themselves against the de-funding of their laboratories by defenders of fossil-fuel interests; opponents of "creation science" under assault for teaching what once was regarded as household-variety biology (a.k.a. Darwinism); Marxists in a political system dominated by neoconservatives. The central thesis that unites this diverse array of controversies is that shutting down free inquiry - most notably for points of view deemed unpopular - "dumbs" us all down by restraining the search for knowledge, which demands open inquiry."--Jacket
The encyclopedia of global warming science and technology by Bruce E Johansen( )

13 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,462 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Comprehensive in scope and accessible to all reader levels, The Encyclopedia of Global Warming Science and Technology covers a vast range of topics, concepts, issues, processes, and scientists sifted and melded from the many scientific and technological fields.

Native Americans today : a biographical dictionary by Bruce E Johansen( )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,151 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book focuses on Native American lives in the United States and Canada, mainly after 1900, though a few older figures are included because their lives evoke strikingly modern themes. The author, an expert in Native American subject matter, knows (or knew) several of the people in the entries, adding a special vibrancy to the writing. Among those profiled are former U.S. Senator Ben Nighthorse Campbell, activist Eloise Cobell, and controversial political prisoner Leonard Peltier, as well as writers, artists, and musicians. The compilation also includes non-Native Americans whose lives and careers impacted Indian life. --Book Jacket

10 editions published between 1997 and 1998 in English and held by 1,030 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Encyclopedia of Native American Biography examines the lives of diverse Native Americans - writers and warriors, explorers and religious leaders, legislators and athletes, historical and contemporary figures alike - giving readers a privileged look at numerous Native cultures in their own terms and from their own perspectives. Here you'll find familiar names, such as: the famous fighters Geronimo and Tecumseh, the near-mythological Hiawatha and Pocahontas, the Explorer Sacajawea, the statesmen Chief Joseph and Powhatan, and contemporary figures Louise Erdrich, Russell Means, and Leonard Peltier. You'll also discover the critically important, fascinating, but little-known figures like Deganawidah, the founder of the Iroquois Confederacy; Cornplanter, an Iroquois leader and close friend of George Washington; Plenty Coups, the Crow leader so revered that when he died, the Crow Council members refused to name another principal Chief in his place; and Susan LaFlesche, the first Native American woman doctor who literally worked herself to death for her people. Also included are non-Indians who played important roles in Native American history."--Jacket
Native American political systems and the evolution of democracy : an annotated bibliography by Bruce E Johansen( )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 1,027 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than a decade scholars have debated the question of whether American Indian confederacies, primarily the Iroquois, helped influence the formation of U.S. basic law. The idea has sparked lively debate in the public arena as well, with Canadian diplomat Durling Voyce-Jones contending it shows a paradigm shift in our thinking, Patrick Buchanan calling it idiocy, and George Will saying it's fiction. For the first time, this bibliography brings together some 450 citations on the debate. The work describes the debate in the words of one of its major participants, Bruce E. Johansen, author of three other books on the subject.''The bibliography also takes the reader back to suggestions of the idea long before the contemporary debate. Lakota author Charles Eastman brought up the subject in 1919, Mohawk teacher Ray Fadden developed it in the 1940s, and John F. Kennedy touched on it in 1960. Bringing the debate to its full flower in the present day, the bibliography illustrates both fervent support and equally emphatic denial in the academy and the public press. The book is both a scholarly tool and a lively exploration of issues bearing on the study of history and multiculturalism

The global warming combat manual : solutions for a sustainable world by Bruce E Johansen( Book )

7 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 780 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Global Warming Combat Manual describes the practical measures that readers can take in their daily lives to reduce their carbon footprints, while showing how to link one's personal choices with the big-picture science and the big-scale campaigns to combat global warming on the political, legal, economic, and technological fronts. The emphasis throughout is on practical tips for ways in which people in their everyday roles as citizens, consumers, homeowners, employees, commuters, tourists, sportsmen, business owners, or farmers can help combat global warming. Johansen--assisted by climatologist James Hansen's foreword and appendix--gives general readers the tools they need to calculate and put into action the most rational and ethical "green" choices. Dovetailing the personal with the technological and public-policy dimensions, this book lays out the whole battery of existing, emerging, and speculative solutions for global warming. These range from the humdrum and easy (keeping your tires properly inflated), through the necessary and hard (retooling the ways you transport, house, and feed yourself for maximum energy efficiency and minimum carbon footprint). They also encompass the possible (switching over a large fraction of our carbon-based energy sector to alternative sectors based on biofuel, wind, solar, and geothermal power), the visionary (creating a bacterium that will consume CO₂), and the improbable (deploying giant reflecting mirrors in space), as well as the weird and dangerous (pumping sulfur aerosols into the stratosphere) -- From bookjacket

Enduring legacies : Native American treaties and contemporary controversies( Book )

6 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 665 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This collection of essays by experts on Native American history examines historic agreements in light of recent and ongoing controversies. Claims to ancestral land bases are a prime example: the Canandaigua Treaty of 1794 provides a context for addressing the Onondaga's claim to most of the Syracuse urban area. Treaties provide the foundation for such events as the modern-day rebirth of the Ponca Nation in Nebraska more than a century after a bureaucratic error resulted in banishment from ancestral land. One chapter explores why the U.S. Army still officially regards the tragic events at Wounded Knee in December 1890 as a "battle," rather than a "massacre." Another chapter reveals how treaties and laws have been used to retain and regain gas and oil resource ownership. Yet another chapter examines why so much energy has been expended over the fate of 9,300-year-old hones that have come to be called "Kennewick Man.""--Jacket
