    Barbara Ward Jackson, Enrique Pen~alosa

    The largest “wandering of the people” in human history is taking place at a moment when mankind has both a more demanding vision of equality and dignity for all and new awareness of the physical limits of the environment. How will the 1.5 billion people pouring into the world’s cities between now and the year 2000 be provided with housing, food, jobs, and essential services? How will the destitute villages be given new purpose, vitality, and expanded livelihood?More

  3. Book ImageVitamins: Their Use and Abuse

    Joseph Victor Levy, Paul Bach-y-Rita

    Americans are consuming vitamins in ever-increasing amounts, and this book was written because its authors, both biomedical professionals, could get no sound general guidance on vitamins for themselves and their families from any existing volume. They were impressed with the confusion, conflicting information and claims, and indeed fraudulent hucksterism that exist in the field of vitamins.More

    Robert Claiborne

    With the same erudition and wit that characterized his Climate, Man, and History, Robert Claiborne now tackles the evolution of human nature. Drawing heavily on recent studies of our closest relatives, the apes and monkeys, he seeks to delineate the inherited likes, dislikes, and tendencies which still shape--though they do not rigidly determine--our behavior.More

  6. Book ImageEarly Greek Science: Thales to Aristotle

    G. E. R. Lloyd

    Although there is no exact equivalent to our term science in Greek, Western science may still be said to have originated with the Greeks, for they were the first to attempt to explain natural phenomena consistently in naturalistic terms, and they initiated the practices of rational criticism of scientific theories.More

  7. Book ImagePoetries and Sciences, A Reissue of Science and Poetry (1926, 1935) with Commentary

    I. A. Richards

    The reissue of this essay is an important event. The controversy between the life of the imagination and the life of technology has never been as strong as it is today, and so Professor Richards’ observations are of special value.More

  9. Book ImageNewtonian Mechanics

    A.P. French

    The text material in the present volume is designed to be a more or less self-contained introduction to Newtonian mechanics, such that a student with little or no grounding in the subject can, by beginning at the beginning, be brought gradually to a level of considerable proficiency.More

  15. Book ImageThe Living Brain

    W. Grey Walter

    This is a pioneer work of great importance--the first attempt to record for the general public the tremendous advances of the last twenty years in our knowledge of the mechanics of the brain. These advances have been made possible through the invention of the electroencephalograph (EEG for short), the machine which magnifies the minute electrical impulses transmitted inside the brain. Everyone interested in probing the mysteries of human thought and personality will find his horizons widened by a study of this remarkable book.More
