BLACK AMERICAN MUSIC: Past and Present
by Hildred Roach

Revised and expanded, this important text is designed to introduce the beginning scholar to various types of Pan-African music, from Africa to the Americas. With an emphasis upon the African American composer, this survey uses musical examples and illustrations to pinpoint beginning influences, the slave era, the emergence of the black professional, and contemporary trends. Discussions center upon classical and popular forms, and offer the music of William Grant Still alongside that of jazz personalities as Edward (Duke) Ellington, Ferdinand (Jelly Roll) Morton, rap artist M.C. Hammer, and rock star Michael Jackson. Suitable for use in semester-length courses on African American Music, the book captures the fascinating story of a proud heritage whose roots grew centuries ago, and whose influences serve as a backdrop not only for African American music, but as a cornerstone for other American music as well.

"The author's treatment of this information is well organized, lucidly explained, and synthesized so that it can be easily incorporated into a general music class, a humanities class, an African American or American music class, and African American studies or American studies reading list, or for special reading in music history or literature classes."African American Reviews

IVORY HUNTERS: A Novel of Extinction
by Greg Lewbart

This first novel from Greg Lewbart, a veterinarian and assistant professor of aquatic medicine at North Carolina State University, is a page-turning scientific mystery that raises important issues about man's exploitation of the environment. This timely story revolves around the discovery of a previously thought to be extinct species of bird, the ivory-billed woodpecker. The novel is situated in southern Florida and the hero is a state game warden named Hal Noble who is dedicated to the conservation of nature and the environment. He finds himself pitted against the unscrupulous Malcolm Grimes who has sold information of the bird's whereabouts to several diverse parties with an interest in exploiting the animal.
"…a superb ecological mystery that raises important issues about man's exploitation of the environment. Exceptionally well written". — The Midwest Book Review

PAVILION KEY: Isle of Buried Treasure
by Greg Lewbart

PAVILION KEY: Isle of Buried Treasure continues the saga of Florida Game and Fresh Water Fish Commission Officer Hal Noble, who once again finds himself pitted against corrupt individuals—their greedy plans could seriously affect one of the most endangered reptiles on earth, the Kemp's ridley sea turtle. This time the story takes Hal to Pavilion Key which lies at the leading edge of Florida's Ten Thousand Islands. This island was a favorite stop for Caribbean pirates in the 16th and 17th centuries — but gold doubloons and precious stones aren't the only treasures buried in its sands. Pavilion Key, like Greg Lewbart's first novel, Ivory Hunters, weaves sharply drawn characters with classic mystery plots while touching on such important and timely topics as natural history, ecology, and conservation. Mystery lovers, nature buffs and discerning readers of all types will enjoy Lewbart's entertaining and educational adventures.
"…a classic page-turner mystery, interlaced with timely themes related to natural history, ecology, and conservation."—Northeastern University Magazine

CONAN DOYLE'S TALES OF
MEDICAL HUMANISM AND VALUES: Round The Red Lamp
edited by Alvin E. Rodin  & Jack D. Key

This annotated reprint of Arthur Conan Doyle's Round the Red Lamp, Being Facts and Fancies of Medical Life, published in 1894, also contains commentary and notes for an additional six of Conan Doyle's medical short stories as well as the text of an address which he presented to medical students in 1910. Included in these literary vignettes are three Sherlock Holmes stories that are primarily medical in orientation. These vital messages from almost one hundred years ago not only reinforce the present emerging trend of medical humanism, but also graphically portray the psychosocial effects of disease on the afflicted and the healer alike. The book is of interest to medical historians; physicians; students of medicine, allied health groups and medical humanities; and Sherlock Holmes enthusiasts.

MEDICAL CASEBOOK OF DOCTOR ARTHUR CONAN DOYLE: From Practitioner to Sherlock Holmes and Beyond
by Alvin E. Rodin & Jack D. Key

In addition to recognition in literature, Sir Arthur Conan Doyle should be recognized for his work as a physician and for his medical concepts expressed in various publications. He was a diversified genius and this book endeavors to document his medical facet. Conan Doyle was the creator of a spectacularly popular series of crime-solving adventures involving exploits of Sherlock Holmes and Dr. John Watson, in which medicine was inextricably entwined. He established himself as a versatile author with historical novels, short stories, volumes of poems, plays, histories, science fiction, and publications in occult science, as well as medicine.
