"If you look at the skull, if you examine the letter from the young queen, if you hold the royal ring in your hand, it's clear that something shocking and violent happened to King Tut." -Dr. Bob Brier Three thousand years ago, a nineteen-year-old pharaoh died mysteriously. Hastily, a commoner's tomb was readied for his burial, his body mummified, fabulous jewels and furniture gathered, the tomb sealed. Then: silence. In the years that followed, almost every trace of the young king and his wife was literally erased. In 1922, the small tomb was uncovered; inside lay the most glorious royal Egyptian treasures ever unearthed, and Tut's place in history was restored. So dazzling was the treasure-the golden coffin, the mask, the jewels, the vases-that it was easy to forget that almost nothing was revealed about the man buried there. What really happened to King Tut? His brutal murder and his queen's subsequent frantic overtures to neighboring kings are just two of Dr. Bob Brier's startling allegations as he pieces together the evidence and comes back with a convincing verdict. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall.

Bones of Contention: Controversies in the Search for Human Origins

By Lewin, Roger

Simon & Schuster, 1987. Book. Very Good +. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A photo of this book is available. NO remainder marks or price clippings. Price inside dustcover: $19.95. Dustcover shows light wear (NO tears). Tight spine, clean pages. 348 pages. Illustrated. NO writing or tears inside book. Synopsis: Bones of Contention is a behind-the-scenes look at the search for human origins. Analyzing how the biases and preconceptions of paleoanthropologists shaped their work, Roger Lewin's detective stories about the discovery of Neanderthal Man, the Taung Child, Lucy, and other major fossils provide insight into this most subjective of scientific endeavors. The new afterword looks at ways in which paleoanthropology, while becoming more scientific in many ways, remains contentious. "[An] un-put-downable book."John Gribbon, Times Educational Supplement "Not just another 'stones and bones' account of human evolution. It is Lewin's thesis, amply demonstrated, that paleoanthropology is the most subjective of sciences because it engages the emotions of virtually everyone; and since the evidence is scrappy, interpretation is everything. . . . A splendid, stirring, and eye-opening account, to be devoured."Kirkus Reviews, starred review "[Lewin shows] 'how very unscientific the process of scientific inquiry can be.'. . . Bones of Contention is . . . serious intellectual history."Edward Dolnick, Wall Street Journal "[Lewin] documents his thesis in persuasive detail. . . . The reader is carried along by the power of Mr. Lewin's reporting."Robert Wright, New York Times Book Review Publishers Weekly: In this compelling, readable book, Lewis (Thread of Life, etc.) inquires into the controversies and ``paradigm shifts'' that have marked the views of evolutionists Darwin, Alfred Russel Wallace, T. H. Huxley and others in the era that witnessed the discovery of the bones of Neanderthal Man (1856); as well as such modern-day theorists and field-workers as the Leakeys (Louis, Richard and Mary) and Donald Johanson, who found the bones of ``Lucy.'' Covering the history of the hunt for fossil evidence supporting Darwin's argument for man's ``descent,'' he shows through superb research and lively interviews how profoundly subjective the views of scientists have been whenever they have tried to determine when, how and why humans (``hominids'') branched off from apes. Here are descriptions of African fossil-digs, arguments about the naming of fossil finds, ego-clashes between the likes of Richard Leakey and Donald Johansonnone of it destroying evolutionary theory itself, but all of it, with insight and submerged humor, showing how all-too-human science can be.

Digging Dinosaurs

By Horner, John R.; Gorman, James

New York, NY, U.S.A.: Workman Publishing Company, Incorporated, 1988. Book. Illus. by Braginetz, Donna and Ellingsen, Kris. Near-Fine. Hardcover. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. A photo of this book is available. Very-nice, clean condition. NO remainder marks or dustcover clippings. Tight spine, bright pages. 210 pages. Illustrated. NO writing or tears inside book. Possibly the most exciting dinosaur event this century was the discovery of the remains of nests, eggs, babies and juveniles of the hadrosaur family at the Willow Creek anticline in central Montana. In this book, paleontologist Jack Horner, who uncovered these treasures in 1978, takes us along to the dig, where he continues to work today; his coauthor is science writer James Gorman, who followed Horner through a season's excavations. Further exploration indicated that the hadrosaurs nested in colonies, traveled in herds and were probably warm-blooded. For the first time, scientists had evidence of dinosaur family and social life. After telling how he found the first site, Horner guides us through the landscape of 80 million years ago, painting a vivid portrait of dinosaurian life; he offers a plausible explanation of how the group at this location perished. Dinosaur buffs will revel in these discoveries. Photos and line drawings..
