    Race and Human Evolution by Milford Wolpoff and Rachel Caspari - 1996.

    What else? ;-)

    It's a good work that deals with the Multiregional view of human evolution as opposed to the "Out of Africa" model.

    Excellent, in this case I can leave you to make some summaries and publish some excerpts from this intriguing but not too accessible book, while meanwhile I can fully concentrate on the theories of W. and E.R. Jaensch...;-))

    Do I remember you refering to this book on one of your posts, Frans? I have this thought in my head anyway....

    I was thinking of scanning some of the skull images from this book and yes, summarizing some of the main points. I'm just getting to the 'juicy' parts now. He-he.

    It contains some excellent Coon quotes as well that I thought I'd post also.

    Hi Fade,

    I'm glad to see that you're reading about Julian the Apostate.

    I highly recommend Gore Vidal novel's about him, I read it a few years ago and enjoyed it tremendously.

    "Julian has always been something of an underground hero in Europe. His attempt to stop Christianity and revive Hellenism exerts still a romantic appeal."
    Gore Vidal's Julian

    http://www.amazon.com/exec/obidos/tg...79957?v=glance

    Julian the Apostate is a fascinationg historic personage, and perhaps my favourite historic figure.

    A good site on Julian

    http://www.juliansociety.org/

    Not long ago I bought Richard Fletcher's The Barbarian Conversion: From Paganism to Christianity.

    It ought to be a lot of fun -- I can't wait to read it.

    Apart from biographies on Iulianus, I've got a book with quotes of him: Der Kaiser der Römer gegen den König der Juden ("The Emperor of the Romans Against the King of the Jews"), printed in the early 1940s in the Nordland-Verlag, the publishing house which belonged to the SS.

    The interesting thing about Julian, is that unlike most other pagans, except perhaps Marcus Aurelius whom he admired, he was a pious ascetic. His paganism was more of an expression of his own austere personality than anything else. He quarreled with many of the other pagans like the Cynics because of this. He tried to change paganism to counter Christianity. He certainly was no decadent. He also wanted to establish a pagan church and adopt other Christian motifs.

    "'Do we not observe,' Julian asked the high priest of Galatia, 'that what has most of all fostered the growth of atheism (i.e. Christianity) is humanity towards strangers, forethought in regard to the burial of the dead, and an affection of dignity in one's life? Each of these ought, in my opinion, to be cultivated genuinely by us.' Julian went on to instruct that his priests avoid theatres, taverns, and any occupations of ill-repute. He ordered that guest houses be established in every city to give proof of the humanity of the pagan priests. He provided for the free distribution of wheat and wine to the poor. The friends of Hellenism were to undertake this philanthropy and to wrest from the Galilaeans the credit they had earned from good works."

    G.W. Bowersock, Julian the Apostate (Cambridge, 1978), p.87

    Julian was a great emperor. He reminds me of Hitler in the way that he undertook a great project of spiritual reform yet was cut down so early in his life. He lived a pious upright life as well. The man was uncorruptable. Truly a shining light in the darkness of the late empire no doubt. There is, however, his attempt to rebuild the temple of the Jews in Jerusalem. He tried to cultivate the Jews as allies, but this was probably due to political, rather than religious motives.
    The Phora

    "There are no principles; there are only events. There is no good and bad, there are only circumstances. The superior man espouses events and circumstances in order to guide them. If there were principles and fixed laws, nations would not change them as we change our shirts and a man can not be expected to be wiser than an entire nation."
