Some ten thousand years ago, Earth was visited by beings from another planet in the Barnard’s Star system. The Babylonians recorded that beings they called the Oannes were amphibious creatures who came to Earth for the welfare of the human race. The historian Hellandus describes them as having fishlike features but the head, feet, and arms of a man. They instructed humans in everything a civilized nation should know. They built a city beneath Antarctica near the Davis Sea and have lived there peacefully and secretly ever since. But now a rogue Dwarf Star called Zarama threatens the very existence of both Earth and the home planet, Nazmos. Their mythology predicts that a being from another planet will avert disaster. Enter Ashley Bonner into this scenario. He has been granted special gifts, and the Oannes think he may be the predicted one. Can Ashley really prevail against a star a third more massive than the sun? This is the story of Ashley’s development to manhood from age four to seventy and his ultimate sacrifice to save both worlds. —C. J. Harvey

Savage Money

The deeper philosophical meaning of "value" is examined in this thought-provoking study of the household values that are associated with agricultural land, rural marketing, village money lending, and the use of diverse forms of "money" in Central India. Gregory (anthropology, Australian National U.) uses a comparative approach based on extensive field work in Central India to analyze the values that spring from reciprocally recognized relations of affinity, consanguinity and contiguity, and to contemplate how these relate to western notions of money and value--the "savage money" of free market capitalism. This is a second printing of a 1997 book. c. Book News Inc.
