This book offers readers a rare chance to witness a mainstream thinker challenge an outlaw-activist. Avakian and Martin wrestle with big questions that have to do with the state of the world and the possibility for radical change. The scope and relevance of Marxism, and the nature and reach of communist revolution, are at the heart of this rich and lively dialogue. Avakian and Martin probe a wide range of issues: the place of ethics in a transformative revolutionary politics; Kant, Rousseau, and Hegel; Marx and the question of colonialism and Eurocentrism; the Maoist experience in China; sustainable agriculture and the task of overcoming the urban-rural divide; imperialism and lopsided development in the world, and the effects on social structure and revolution; animal rights; secularism and religion; the post-911 agenda of the U.S. ruling class, the political-social-cultural landscape of the U.S., and the prospects for resistance and revolution; Marxism and the question of homosexuality; the challenges confronting radical and communist intellectuals and the possibilities for engaged, creative intellectual work today.

This volume presents a broad comparative anatomical approach towards the functional morphology of the middle ear of palaeognathous birds (ostrich, rhea, tinamous, emu, cassowary, kiwi) and basal neognathous birds. It presents the most complete and thoroughly studied source of material on this field. For the first time it became possible to develop exact images of "non-structures" like the air-filled spaces of the avian skull by using non-invasive CT-techniques, computer-aided 3D-reconstruction, and morphometry, and to evaluate their functional importance for sound transmission and amplification through the middle ear. A series of air brush drawings represent detailed three-dimensional images of middle ear structures and the pneumatic spaces of the octic region of the skull.

"Few bird species are more ancient than the kiwi. Its lineage predates the end of the Cretaceous period 65 million years ago. This landmark book on New Zealand's national bird looks at its fascinating nature, where it can be seen, the history of its interaction with people, its emblem status and the widespread efforts underway to help it survive another millennium." "Neville Peat has a story to tell of the iconic kiwi. It is the story of the largest conservation effort yet seen in New Zealand in support of a single species, involving thousands of volunteers, scores of sponsors and millions of dollars."--BOOK JACKET.

When Polly Evans read a survey claiming that the last bastion of masculinity, the real Kiwi bloke, was about to breathe his last, she was seized by a sense of foreboding. Abandoning the London winter she took off on a motorbike for the windswept beaches and golden plains of New Zealand, hoping to root out some examples of this endangered species for posterity. But her challenges didn't stop at the men. Just weeks after passing her test, Polly rode from Auckland's glitzy Viaduct Basin to the vineyards of Hawkes Bay and on to the Southern Alps. She found wild kiwis in the dead of night, kayaked among dolphins at dawn, and spent an evening on a remote hillside with a sheep-shearing gang. As she travelled, Polly reflected on the Maori warriors who carved their enemies' bones into cutlery, the pioneer family who lived in a tree, and the flamboyant gold miners who lit their pipes with five-pound notes, and wondered how their descendents have become pathologically obsessed with helpfulness and Coronation Street. The author of the highly acclaimed It's Not About the Tapas reaches some unexpected conclusions about the new New Zealand man - and finds that evolution has taken some unlikely twists.
