When did language emerge? How did our ancestors break out of Africa and defeat the more physically powerful Neanderthals? How did human nature change in the 35,000 years between the emergence of fully modern humans and the first settlements? In the last three years a flood of new scientific findings driven by revelations discovered in the human genome has provided compelling new answers to many long-standing mysteries about our ancient ancestors. Nicholas Wade takes readers to the forefront of research in a sweeping and engrossing narrative, the first to reveal how genetic discoveries are helping to weave together the perspectives of archaeology, palaeontology, anthropology, linguistics, and many other fields. Before the Dawn marks a major advance in our understanding of human nature and origins.

If you don't know the show: take one kick-ass, bike-riding genetically-modified girl, created in a government laboratory to become the perfect soldier.

The controversial autobiography of the man at the heart of Irish Republican politics. Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams offers his own unique, intimate account of the early years of his career, from his childhood in working-class Belfast to the more turbulent years of social activism that followed. An engaging and revealing self-portrait. Born in West Belfast in 1948 into a family with close ties to both the trade union and republican movements, his childhood, despite its material poverty, he has described in glowing and humorous terms. For many years his voice was banned from radio and television by both the British and Irish governments, while commentators and politicians condemned him and all he stood for. But through those years Brandon published a succession of books which made an important contribution to an understanding of the true circumstances of life and politics in the north of Ireland. In his autobiography, Before the Dawn, Gerry Adams brings a unique perspective to the years of conflict, insurrection and bitter struggle which ensued when peaceful political agitation was met with hysterical reaction and the sectarian tinderbox of Britain's last colony erupted. From the pogroms of 1969 to the hunger strikes of 1981, from the streets of West Belfast to the cages of Long Kesh, his powerful memoir is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand modern Ireland.

"This is the story of how the famous and revered Chief Rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, became a Christian and entered the Catholic Church after World War II. Zolli was a world-renowned Jewish leader, respected Scripture and Talmudic scholar, and noted authority on Semitic philology." "This classic work outlines the spiritual journey of Rabbi Zolli, through prayer, meditation on Scripture, and his lived experience, from devout Judaism to ardent Catholicism. He tells how he did not abandon his Jewish heritage; rather, he discovered the fullness of what God offered in Jesus and His Church. Zolli took the Christian name of Eugenio to honor Pope Pius XII (Eugenio was his baptismal name) for all he did to save the Jews during the war." "Before the Dawn covers highlights of his spiritual journey and includes some marvelous insights by Rabbi Zolli on Judaism, mysticism, the Law, and the Gospel. Zolli speaks of his journey not as a betrayal of the Synagogue but as a completion and fulfillment. He describes himself as becoming a "completed Jew" by recognizing Jesus Christ ("Rabbi Yeshua") as the Messiah and joining His Church. Zolli offers unique insights on the continuity between the Synagogue and the Catholic Church and many interesting insights into the Scriptures - including the New Testament - from an Orthodox Jewish perspective."--BOOK JACKET.

The book Before the Dawn, is about the settling of Balkans before recorded history, a possible scenario. Emperor Franz Joseph, of the Hapsburg Empire, said these people were impossible to rule; the answer may well be in the mixture of cultures that made up the area 10,000 years ago when anthropology statesEurope was being settled by the human race. This is the story of these early settlers struggle for survival escaping the ravages of nature as the polar ice cap formed over Sweden and geological upheavals forced the population south. This is also the story taken from ancient writings of the east of a family escaping the annihilation of war. Either there was some truth in the Sanskrit writings, or the author wrote great science fiction. Also I have taken elements from the blind Greek poet, Homer, and his poem on Atlantis. Archeology found the Minoan civilization on Crete due to his description, so there is likely truth in the other poem. Science states that we use only a fraction of the human brain capacity, that we have lost the use of the brains full capacity. In such case, our ancient ancestors must surely have had its function. There are, scattered over Europe, small clans that lay claim to those powers; they have no written language so no verification. This is the basis of the novel Before the Dawn
