Item description for Dispossessing the Widow: Gender-Based Violence in Malawi (Kachere) by Women and Law in Southern Africa-Malawi...
Authoritative, thorough, and engaging, Life: The Science of Biology achieves an optimal balance of scholarship and teachability, never losing sight of either the science or the student. The first introductory text to present biological concepts through the research that revealed them, Life covers the full range of topics with an integrated experimental focus that flows naturally from the narrative. This approach helps to bring the drama of classic and cutting-edge research to the classroom---but always in the context of reinforcing core ideas and the innovative scientific thinking behind them. Students will experience biology not just as a litany of facts or a highlight reel of experiments, but as a rich, coherent discipline.
The new edition builds on Life's enduring strengths by doing what this acclaimed text has always done: combine a contemporary view of the discipline with innovative teaching and learning features. New chapters and essays, an enhanced art program, and standard-setting media and supplements combine to make this edition the finest yet.

Life : The Science of Biology Mar 22, 2008
Wonderful text with GREAT additional resources. There is a wonderful website that covers key topics, enables you to quickly print out objectives, vocabulary; and even has web tutorials. This supplemental material is great for people who are visual learners, as they have plenty of animations to help you understand the topics. Would highly recommend any text from this publisher.
Life - The Science of Biology 8th edition (by Sadava & et al) Jan 13, 2008
This book arrived rapidly and I was quite pleased. The book also came in great condition as if new, even though it was used. I am a happy shopper. Great seller. Great product. I would buy again from the seller - good business! I feel like a valued customer.
impressive and thorough Nov 29, 2007
An undergraduate, freshman level biology class I took used this as its textbook. It is thorough and detailed, packed with information on a broad range of biological topics, written in a highly accessible manner that requires no special training to understand. It covers such topics as the cell, heredity, evolution, plants, animals, and ecology. It's not quite as well written as the finest textbooks I've read, such as Alberts' Molecular Biology of the Cell or Kandel's Principles of Neural Science, but it's well written nonetheless. Anyone interested in the subject of biology should give this a read. Author of Adjust Your Brain: A Practical Theory for Maximizing Mental Health.
Wonderful textbook! Sep 16, 2007
I graduated from college in the early 70's with a B.S. major in Physics. Having retired from the business world, I recently discovered the absolutely wonderous advances in what I believed to be the "non-physical" sciences. Hooray for E.O.Wilson's concept of concilience!
I'm studying Biology using "Life" and its associated website. What amazing fun! I love this book and it is the best textbook I've ever studied. This book is not a good "read" - it's a great book to study!
good book Oct 16, 2005
i bought this text cause it was required for class. It's pretty good, i don't know why you'd read it for fun, but it's a pretty good textbook.
