"People moved into America very early across the Bering Strait. By the fifth millennia B.C.E. tropical sailors brought diseases to America and took plants and animals in both directions. Long before Columbus, tropical sailors carefully selected crops from New World highlands and shorelines, wet and dry climates, and took them to the Old World where they were grown in appropriate environments. Medicinal and psychedelic plants were traded and maintained in Egypt and Peru during separate, 1,400-year periods. This implies that maritime trade was continuous. In this groundbreaking book, learn about: 84 plants that were taken from the Americas to the Old World; what plants and animals were brought to the Americas; why world trade was essential for transfer of so many; interconnectedness of civilizations had to result from world trade; and dating of 18 species by archaeology with radio carbon shows dispersal."--Publisher's description

The author demonstrates that the Book of Mormon is a native Mesoamerican book (or codex) that exhibits what one would expect of a historical document produced in the context of ancient Mesoamerican civilization. He also shows that scholars' discoveries about Mesoamerica and the contents of the Nephite record are clearly related, listing more than 400 points where the Book of Mormon text corresponds to characteristic Mesoamerican situations, statements, allusions, and history

Unconventional warfare and the Venezuelan society by John L Sorenson( Book )

4 editions published in 1964 in English and held by 11 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The study exemplifies the use of knowledge derived from scholarly studies in the social sciences to lay the foundation for defenses against modern unconventional warfare. Unconventional warfare is defined as a system of conflict the strategy of which is to secure control of the state by first gaining control of its civilian population. The study is a follow-up to a pioneer attempt in the use of social science techniques, which treated the situation in South Vietnam. To determine how useful the procedures developed there would be when applied to a different situation, a brief investigation was conducted from June to August 1963 of unconventional warfare in Venezuela using the same procedural apparatus as in the Vietnam work. The results indicate that the system works well and that it works with speed, a systematic picture of the social structure of the modern nation of Venezuela having been produced in the remarkably short time of 3 months, using only the open literature. The report of findings follows the plan used for the Vietnam study. Four sections sketch the dynamics of the economic, political, military, and attitude-forming aspects of Venezuelan society; each section is followed by a discussion of the roles and groups most important to the aspect. Finally, a projection of what is likely to happen in the country in relation to unconventional war up to the end of 1966 is presented. A biographical file on key personalities, a glossary of abbreviations, and a bibliography are included. (Author)
