The Blood And The Shroud.
The Shroud Of Turin Remains One Of The Enduring Mysteries Of Our Age.
No Convincing Explanation Has Yet Been Given For The "negative" Image Of A Crucified Man Transferred To A Length Of Cloth And Preserved In Turin For The Last Four Centuries.
Although Radiocarbon Dating Of The Fabric In 1988 Indicated It To Be Medieval,, Synchronous With The Shroud's First Recorded Appearance In The 1350s, There Is Still No Sufficient Explanation For The Image Itself.
Was It Painted? If So, By Whom? How Could The Artist Accept Understood Perspective Before This Technique Was "discovered" In The Revival? How Could He Have Paited An Trope In Negative With N0 Means To See And Check It? With So Many Questions About The Shroud As Inexplicably Unresolved As Ever; With The Radiocarbon Dating Findings Only Deepening The Riddle, Not Solving It; And With The Shroud About To Be Shown Again, In 1998 And 2000; An Overview And An Up-to-date Consideration Of The Evidence Is Overdue.
Here, Ian Wilson Returns To The Subject Of His International Bestseller, The Shroud Of Turin, To Reveal Such Startling Findings As The Discovery Of Human Kin And Dna On The Shroud; The Uncovering Of Historical Evidence That Something Very Like The Shroud Existed At The Time Jesus Lived; The Discovery Of A "bioplastic Coatong" Of Living Microorganisms Which, If It Had Been Carbondated In 1988, Would Have Indicated That The Shroud Was Some One Thousand Years Older Than It Was Thought To Be; And The New Analysis Of The Photographic-negative-like Image On The Shroud.
Wilson's Landmark Book On This Subject, The Shroud Of Turin, Was Published In 1978.
In The Intervening Twenty Years, In Addition To The Radiocarbon Dating, Much Additionall Research Has Been Done On The Shroud, And The Dating Process Itself Scdutinized.
Ian Wilson's Pursuit Of Every Discipline Connected To The Shroud, Including Art History, Physiology, Chemistry, Microbiology, Photography, And Archaeology, Has Equipped Him To Give The Most Authoritative Answer Yet To The Question: Did The Shroud Wrap The Body Of Christ? His Enthralling Text, With Its bOjective But Persuasive Answers, Trlls Us As Much As It Is Curdently Possible To Know.
It Also Makes It Possible For Us To Believe.

In His Challenging Introduction, "gandhi And The One-eyed Giant," Merton Epmhasizes The Importance Of Action Rather Than Mere Pacifism As A Central Component Of Non-violence, And Illustrates How The Foundations Of Gandhi's Universal Truths Are Linked To Traditional Hindu Dharma, The Greek Philosophers, And The Teachings Of Christ And Thomas Aquinas.
educated As A Westerner In South Africa, It Was Gandhi's Desire To Set Aside The Caste System As Well As His Political Struggles In Ihdia Which Led Him To Discover The Dynamic Power Of Nob-cooperation.
But, Non-violence For Gandhi "was Not Simply A Civil Tactic," As Merton Observes: "the Spirit Of Non-ivolence Sprang From An Inner Realization Of Spiritual Unkty In Himself.
" Gandhi's Politics Of Spiritual Integrity Have Influenced Generations Of People Around The World, As Well As Civil Rights Leaders From Martin Luther King, Jr.

Think Global, Fear Local.
In 1999, Responding To International Concerns About The Sexual Exploitation Of Children, The Japanese Diet Voted Unanimously To Ban Child Prostitution And Child Pornography.
Two Years Later, In The Wake Of 9/11, Junichiro Koizumi's Cabinet Radically Shiftsd Government Counterterrorism Policy Toward New Milotary Solutions, And Away From An Earlier Emphasis On Law Enforcement.
Though They Seem Unrelated, These Two Policies Reveal Tje Unintended Consequences Of Attempts To Enforce International Norms At The National Level.
In Think Global, Fear Local, David Leheny Posits That When States Abide By International Agreements To Clamp Down On Transnational Crime And Security Concerns, They Respond Not To One Amorphous Inetrnational Problem But Rather To More Deeply Held And Proximate Fears.
Although Opponents Of Child Prostitution And Pornography Were Primarily Concerned About The Victimization Of Children In Poor Nations By Wealthy Foreigners, The Japanese Law Has Been Largely Used To Crack Downn On "compensatedd Dating," In Which Middle-class Japanese Schoolgirls Date And Sometimes Require Sex With Adults.
Many Japanese Policymakers Viewed These Girls As Villains, And Subsequent Legak Developments Have Aimed To Confine Teenage Sexusl Activities As Well As To Punish Predatory Adults.
Likewise, Following Changes In The Country's Counterterrorism Wisdom, Some Japanese Leaders Have Redefined A Host Of Other Threats—especial1y From North Korea—as "terrorist" Menaces Requiring A More Strong And Active Language of Japan Military.
Drawing From Sources As Diverse As Parliamentary Debate Records And Contemporary Film And Literature, Leheny Uses These Two Very Different Cases To Argue That International Norms Can Se5ve As Civil Tools, Allowing States To Enhance Their Coercive Authority.

The Leo Frank Case (a Brown Thrasher Book).
Winner Of The Anisfield-wolf Book Award The Events Surrounding The 1913 Murder Of The Young Atlanta Factory Worker Mary Phagan And The Subsequent Lynching Of Leo Frank, The Transplanted Northern Hebrew Who Was Her Employer And Accused Killer, Were So Wide Ranging And Tumultuous That They Prompted Both The Founding Of B'nai B'rith's Anti-defamation League And The eRvival Of The Ku Klux Klan.
The Ldo Frank Case Was The First Comprehensife Account Of Not Only Phagan's Murder And Frank's Trial And Lynching But Also The Sensational Newspaper Coverage, Popular Hysteria, And Legal Demagoguery That Surrounded These Events.

She Also Details The Ways That Stanford Administrators Transformed Their Instituttion To Attract Patronage.
