Environmental science : systems and solutions by Michael L McKinney( )

40 editions published between 1996 and 2019 in English and held by 1,378 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Environmental Science: Systems and Solutions, Fourth Edition, explains the concepts and teaches the skills needed to understand multi-faceted, and often very complex, environmental issues. The authors present the arguments, rebuttals, evidence, and counterevidence from many sides of the debates. To ensure that readers recognize Earth's intricate web of interactions among the biosphere, atmosphere, hydrosphere, and lithosphere, and that people are now a central component in these four spheres, the authors integrate an "Earth as a system" approach."--Jacket
Voyages of the pyramid builders : the true origins of the pyramids, from lost Egypt to ancient America by Robert M Schoch( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2014 in English and held by 566 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Pyramid quest : secrets of the Great Pyramid and the dawn of civilization by Robert M Schoch( Book )

4 editions published between 2005 and 2014 in English and held by 519 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Pyramid Quest uses the rigorous analysis of scientific inquiry to investigate what we know about the Great Pyramid - and develops a stunning hypothesis: This ancient monument is the strongest proof yet that civilization began thousands of years earlier than generally thought, extending far back into a little-known, almost forgotten time. In tracing that story, we come to better understand not only the Great Pyramid itself but also our own origins as civilized beings."--Jacket
Horns, tusks, and flippers : the evolution of hoofed mammals by Donald R Prothero( Book )

7 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 440 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Using an approach based on cladistics, the authors consider both living and extinct ungulates. Included in their discussion are the stories of rhinos, whose ancestors include dinosaur-sized hornless species and hippo-like river waders; elephants, whose earliest ancestors had neither tusks nor trunks; and whales, whose descent from hoofed mesonychids has never properly been described for the lay audience. Prothero and Schoch also update the evolutionary history of the horse, correcting the frequent errors made in textbooks and popular works, and they make available to the general public new evidence about the evolution of camels, horned antelopes, and cattle. In addition, they raise important conservation issues and relate anecdotes of significant fossil finds." "Scientifically accurate, generously illustrated, and clearly written, Horns Tusks, and Flippers is a much-needed resource for specialists in the fields of paleontology, zoology, ecology, and evolutionary biology, as well as for general readers interested in learning more about the story of life on earth."--Jacket

The parapsychology revolution : a concise anthology of paranormal and psychical research by Logan Yonavjak( Book )

4 editions published between 2007 and 2014 in English and held by 196 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Grounded in both scientific acumen and constructive inquiry, this anthology shines a rare, clarifying light on the controversial realms of psychical and paranormal research, surveying reports, essays, and arguments from more than a century of investigation into matters such as clairvoyance, telepathy, and past-life regression. In the past one hundred and twenty-five years-despite a relative paucity of funding and the troubling persistence of fraud-serious inquiry into the paranormal, particularly as it relates to clairvoyance and psychical perception, has successfully entered the scientific age. Studies in the modern laboratory, employing rigorous methodology and peer-reviewed oversight, have conclusively detected statistical anomalies that suggest the presence of some not yet understood faculty of the human mind. In The Parapsychology Revolution, Robert M. Schoch, Ph. D.-a scholar widely known for his geological theories that question the conventional dating of the Great Sphinx-and researcher Logan Yonavjak introduce and anthologize core writings that underscore the range and continuing challenges of psychical research. The book's extensive introduction and the editors' commentary on individual essays and sections highlight milestones, feuds, and key players that mark the nascent history of this fascinating and important field of research. Finally, The Parapsychology Revolution addresses and clarifies the all-important question: Is there legitimate evidence for a world beyond the ordinary'

Origins of the Sphinx : celestial guardian of pre-pharaonic civilization by Robert M Schoch( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

No other monument in the world evokes mystery like the Great Sphinx of Giza. It has survived the harsh climate of Egypt for thousands of years and will remain long after our own civilization is gone. According to orthodox Egyptology, the Sphinx was built around 2500 BCE as a memorial to the pharaoh Khafre. Yet this "fact" has scant to no supportive evidence. When was the Sphinx really built and, most importantly, why?
