Traditional Chinese medicine (TCM) frequently relies on medicines created from the body parts of animals that are rumored to have curative properties. Sea horses, for example, when consumed in large quantities, are alleged to cure everything from asthma to impotency. A worldwide interest in alternative medicine and the ease of international commerce have put dozens of species worldwide—such as American bears and African rhinos—at risk.

Until recent years the logic of grouping together in one book studies on the politics and conflicts of an area including both the Horn of Africa and the Arabian/Persian Gulf would have been. questioned by many. Among the poorest and climatically most difficult parts of the world, the Red Sea and the Gulf have served from the earliest times as a bridge between the Far East, the Mediterranean and Europe. But while notable as a bone of contention between the Great Powers, the region gained little in the past from its relative importance and the luxurious transit trade which went through it and which enriched and helped develop other lands. The endless conflicts between the largely poor and backward peoples of the Red Sea and Gulf littoral, mainly over the meagre resources of the region, were, in most cases, local in character and of little wider significance.

Being Real: The Student-Teacher Relationship and African-American Male Delinquency (Criminal Justice) by Camille Gibson
English | June 2002 | ISBN: 1931202311 | 342 Pages| PDF | 1 MB

Gibson looks at how student-teacher relationships affect African American males. She studied students in two Bronx, New York, schools. African-American males may start optimistic, but they often come to perceive school as a poor option for achieving the "American dream." Instead, they may turn to crime, most often drug dealing and violence.
