Unlock doors to the lost worlds of the Bible — from the Garden of Eden to the ruins of Babylon

Did a volcano part the Red Sea? Have scientists found Eve? Was the pharaoh of the Oppression a woman? Did the Jordan River really cease flowing the day Jericho fell?

A brilliant author, scientist, and adventurer who has been called "the real Indiana Jones," Dr. Charles Pellegrino takes us on a remarkable journey from the Nile to the Tigris-Euphrates rivers — crossing time, legend, and ancient lands to explore the unsolved mysteries of the Old Testament. Return to Sodom and Gomorrah is an epic saga of discovery that interweaves science, history, and suspense --the first book ever to bring archaeologists, scientists and theologians together to examine the same evidence. In this enthralling revelatory adventure, Pellegrino introduces us to dedicated pioneers like Benjamin Mazar, Leonard Woolley, and T. E. Lawrence, who retraced the steps of Moses to demystify the Exodus and the Flood. In the process, he enables us to view ancient relics in an extraordinary new light — as both fascinating windows on the past and vivid signposts to the future.

Book News Annotation:

Bauman (law, U. of Alberta) has organized a reading list for critical legal studies, creating a handbook for radical critique in response to established legal doctrines. As the author emphasizes in the preface, his bibliographies are not exhaustive, and the commentary at each chapter head is merely suggestive of the material; however this is an important source for beginning a critical legal study. The subject headings include the major veins of law practice (criminal, corporate, property, labor, international), and less discussed arteries in relation to law: feminism, critical race theory, Marxism, environmental law, the welfare state, literature, and the work of Roberto Unger.
