      Dr. Elizabeth Weiss is a professor of physical anthropology. Her first
      book, Reburying the Past: the Effects of Repatriation and Reburial on
      Scientific Inquiry (2008), examines the study of human remains and how
      they have been obtained, the ethical dilemmas surrounding working with
      human remains, and the legal and political complexities of repatriation
      and reburial. Her second book, Bioarchaeological Science: What We Have
      Learned from Human Skeletal Remains (2009), covers the study of human
      skeletal remains from archaeological sites to aid in reconstructing the
      biology and culture of past populations. Bioarchaeological Sciences is
      intended for the college student audience to help understand current
      research published in the top peer-reviewed journals.

      Threats of violence—and especially of homicide—are a too-familiar part of
      modern life, paralleling stressful conditions at home, on the job, on
      campus, and in relationships. Death Threats and Violence analyzes the
      meaning and impact of homicidal threats, the means by which they are
      communicated, and their development from infrequent private occurrence to
      ongoing social problem. Death Threats and Violence is an up-to-the-minute
      work of particular interest to general and forensic psychologists,
      sociologists, clinical social workers, and those studying the current
      social climate in which such threats are prevalent. The author, Dr.
      Stephen J. Morewitz, is a lecturer in the Sociology Department at San Jose
      State University.
