NEW 298pp. Octavo [21 cm] Illustrated wraps. "In this ground-shaking, breathtaking cri de coeur, Bowden digs with love-driven fury for the roots of our brutal history in this once-brace New World. The figures he casts before us-from Pancho Villa to a modern-day drug lord, from General Sherman to a skid-row Sioux named Robert Sundance-trace a story not so much of rapaciousness but of fear and loathing.

Is "The Origin of Feces" a Darwinian concern? Perhaps not, but it is the title to the preface of this tongue-in-cheek and unexpectedly revealing exploration of human behavior by the webmaster behind the popular PoopReport.com. This book is not a history of poop, but a study of today. Its goal is to understand how poop affects us, how we view it, and why; to appreciate its impact from the moment it slides out of our anal sphincters to the moment it enters the sewage treatment plant; to explore how we've arrived at this strange discomfort and confusion about a natural product of our bodies; to see how this contradiction-the natural as unnatural-shapes our minds, relationships, environment, culture, economics, media, and art.

Near Fine in Near Fine jacket Excellent copy of this informative and important work. From Chapter 5, "Natural Becomes Unnatural": "As class divisions deepened in ancient Roman society, the sexes were assigned an increasingly unequal status. Everyone who was not born a male heir to property bore the wrath of the new social system. Just as the status of women was degraded, so was everything that was 'not male'-transgender, gender bending, sex-change, and intersexuality.

Humanity can make short work of the oceans' creatures. In 1741, hungry explorers discovered herds of Steller's sea cow in the Bering Strait, and in less than thirty years, the amiable beast had been harpooned into extinction. It's a classic story, but a key fact is often omitted. Bering Island was the last redoubt of a species that had been decimated by hunting and habitat loss years before the explorers set sail.

The approach to drug discovery from natural sources has yielded many important new pharmaceuticals inaccessible by other routes. In many cases the isolated natural product may not be an effective drug for any of several reasons, but it nevertheless may become a drug through chemical modification or have a novel pharmacophore for future drug design. In summarizing the status of natural products as cancer chemotherapeutics, Anticancer Agents from Natural Products, Second Editioncovers the: History of each covered drug-a discussion of its mechanism on action, medicinal chemistry, synthesis, and clinical applications Potential for novel drug discovery through the use of genome mining as well as future developments in anticancer drug discovery Important biosynthetic approaches to "unnatural" natural products Anticancer Agents from Natural Products, Second Editiondiscusses how complex target-oriented synthesis-enabled by historic advances in methodology-has enormously expanded the scope of the possible.
