Booknews
Lucid line drawings and photos, 16 in fine color. Based on some 15 years of study and collection in both polar regions and most areas of the tropics and temperate zones. Detailed treatment is given on all known pelagic snails (aoubt 140 species) including: external anatomy, swimming and buoyancy mechanisms, escape and other behavioral responses, feeding and mating habits, reproduction and ontogeny, and evolutionary trends for each group. Reprint of the 1959 U. of Michigan edition of Thomas Hobbes' translation with David Grene's (committee of social thought, U. of Chicago) notes and new introduction. This transition has been considered the truest to the original Greek in capturing Thucydides' use of language in recreating the Athens-Sparta conflict. Annotation c.
