Religious violence and abortion the Gideon Project by Dallas A Blanchard ( )
5 editions published in 1993 in English and held by 2,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
On Christmas Day in 1984 three abortion clinics in Pensacola, Florida, were bombed by four young people who later went to trial and were convicted and sentenced. The authors explore this moral drama as a case study of religiously motivated political action. (The perpetrators identified with Gideon, the Old Testament slayer of those who sacrificed firstborn infants to Baal.) Their analysis sheds light on the violent wing of the anti-abortion movement. Placing anti-abortion violence in the context of social movement theory, the authors conclude that persons who are predisposed toward such behavior are likely to be working-class males under age 35, socially isolated from countervailing attitudes. Religious fundamentalists, they warn, will continue to utilize violence in reaction to such subjects as pornography, homosexuality, sex education, equality for females, and prayer in public schools. For this book the authors conducted interviews with local activists on both sides of the abortion issue. They attended the Pensacola trial and interviewed local religious fundamentalists, personnel of clinics throughout the United States that have been subjected to arson or bombing, and, when possible, persons who have been tried and convicted of those offenses

Little Caney River, Prehistory (Copan Lake): 1978 Field Season ( Book )
1 edition published in 1980 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
During the Summer and Fall of 1978 the University of Tulsa, Laboratory of Archaeology conducted an investigation of five archaeological sites in the area of Copan Lake, now under construction along the drainage of the Little Caney River between its confluence with the Caney River and the town of Caney, Kansas. The investigation represented Phase II of a multi-year project funded by the U.S. Army Corps of Engineers, Tulsa District Office. Phase II fieldwork at Copan Lake included the excavation of three sites (Sites 34WN30, 34WN64, 34WN68) and test excavation of two additional sites (Sites 34WN32, 34WN69). The bulk of field work was conducted during late June through August, although limited additional work was carried out during the months of October and November. The sites studied represent a number of different kinds of activity or occupancy, as part of continued emphasis of paleoenvironmental reconstruction and settlement systems analysis for the Little Caney drainage. The incorporation of the work with prior investigations by the Laboratory of Archaeology (Henry, 1977a; Keyser and Farley, 1979) and other institutions (Rohn and Smith, 1972; Vaugh, 1975; Vehik and Pailes, 1978) should strongly aid in the development of a refined prehistory of the region, especially the ecotonal area generally referred to as the Cross-Timbers (see also Henry, 1977b, 1977c, 1978)
