              On December 2, 1982, the fully mechanical Jarvik-7 heart was placed inside Barney Clark's chest, culminating years of painstaking research and making medical history by successfully pumping Clark's blood for 112 days. True Valor takes an in-depth look at this significant event, t...elling the stories of the doctors and researchers involved, of Barney Clark, and of the evolution of the artificial heart before and after Clark's transplant. Author Don Olsen is well positioned to tell this story, having worked on the artificial heart project under Dr. William Kolff, the man who designed the Jarvik-7. His narrative conveys the concerns and emotions of those who were part of Clark's story while offering the insights of one who knows that research does not happen overnight but takes time, resources, and the efforts of many people. Olsen's account shares the human sides of this story along with the embedded politics and technical details of medical research in clear, readable language.

              Tracing the Relational: The Archaeology of Worlds, Spirits, and Temporalities (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Tracing the Relational examines the recent emergence of relational ontologies in archaeological interpretation and how using this perspective can help archaeologists better understand the past. Traditional representational approaches reflect modern or Western perspectives, which ...focus on the individual and see the world in terms of dichotomies that separate culture and nature, human and object, sacred and secular. In contrast, ancient societies saw themselves as connected to and entangled with other human and nonhuman entities. Contributors argue that in order to gain deeper insight into how people in the ancient world lived, experienced, and negotiated their lives archaeologists must explore the myriad relationships and entanglements between humans and other beings, places, and things. As contributors unravel these relationships, they demonstrate that movement is an inherent feature of these relational webs and is the driving force behind a continually shifting reality. Chapters focus on various regions and time periods throughout the Americas, tracing how movements between other-worldly dimensions, spirits and deities, and temporalities were integral to everyday life.

              Times, Trees, and Prehistory: Tree Ring dating and the Development of NA Archaeology 1914 to 1950 (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Dendrochronology, the science of assigning precise calendar dates to annual growth rings in trees, provided accurate dates at a time when North American archaeologists had no absolute dating techniques available to guide their analyses. Time, Trees, and Prehistory examines the gr...owth, development, application, and interpretive implications of North American archaeological tree-ring dating from 1914 to 1950.The development of dendrochronology forced archaeologists to radically revise their understanding of the prehistoric past, compressing by nearly fifty percent the time scale of the archaeological record. Basketmaker sites, for instance, were once thought to be four thousand years old; tree-ring application demonstrated that these sites dated well into the present millennium. Classic sites in Chaco Canyon and Mesa Verde were believed occupied for nearly a thousand years, but tree-ring dates demonstrated that such sites were often built, occupied, and abandoned in just over a century. Other similar changes in temporal scale forced archaeologists to reconsider their interpretations of the rate of prehistoric cultural change, population growth, and the degree of social and political complexity in the Southwest.Time, Trees, and Prehistory examines archaeological practices of the 1920s, 30s, and 40s and demonstrates that tree-ring dating set the stage that enabled revolutionary developments in archaeological method and theory in succeeding decades.
