An Introduction to Nervous Systems - Ralph J. GreenspanAn Introduction to Nervous Systems presents the principles of neurobiology from an evolutionary perspective-from single-celled organisms to complex invertebrates such as flies-and is ideal for use as a supplemental textbook.

Good Wives: Image and Reality in the Lives of Women in Northern New England, 1650-1750 - Laurel Thatcher Ulrich, J. LaslockyThis enthralling work of scholarship strips away those abstractions to reveal the hidden -- and not always stoic -- face of the "goodwives" of colonial America.
