From ancient rock drawings to today’s urban living, the Native American Almanac: More than 50,000 Years of the Cultures and Histories of Indigenous Peoples traces the rich heritage of indigenous people. It is a fascinating mix of biography, pre-contact and post-contact history, current events, Tribal Nations’ histories, enlightening insights on environmental and land issues, arts, treaties, languages, education, movements, and more. Ten regional chapters, including urban living, cover the narrative history, the communities, land, environment, important figures, and backgrounds of each area’s Tribal Nations and peoples. The stories of 345 Tribal Nations, biographies of 400 influential figures in all walks of life, Native American firsts, awards, and statistics are covered. 150 photographs and illustrations bring the text to life. The most complete and affordable single-volume reference work about Native American culture available today, the Native American Almanac is a unique and valuable resource devoted to illustrating, demystifying, and celebrating the moving, sometimes difficult, and often lost history of the indigenous people of America. Capturing the stories and voices of the American Indian of yesterday and today, it provides a range of information on Native American history, society, and culture.

Die Protozoologie ist keine besondere Wissenschaft, sondern nur die Zu sammenfassung der Kenntnisse, welche wir von einer bestimmten Tiergruppe, den Protozoen, besitzen. Sie ist daher nichts weiter als ein Teil der speziellen Zoologie. Trotzdem hat das Wort "Protozoologie" einen besonderen Klang. Mehr als alle anderen Tiergruppen haben die Protozoen dazu angeregt, Fragen von allgemeiner biologischer Bedeutung aufzuwerfen, und nicht wenige Fragen sind mit ihrer Hilfe beantwortet worden oder einer Beantwortung nähergerückt. In anderen Ländern ist die Bewertung der Protozoen als Untersuchungs objekte in ständigem Anstieg begriffen. Äußerlich kommt dies z. B. darin zum Ausdruck, daß die im Jahre 1947 in den USA gegründete "Society of Proto zoologists" heute bereits über 450 Mitglieder zählt. Seltsamerweise ist aber das Interesse an den Protozoen unter den deutschen Biologen immer mehr im Schwinden begriffen. Mit diesem Buch möchte ich dazu beitragen, dieses Interesse neu zu beleben. Die Anregung dazu gab mir eine Vorlesung, die ich in den letzten Jahren mehr mals im Zoologischen Institut der Tübinger Universität hielt. Hierzu trug auch ein protozoologischer Kurs bei, den ich in jedem Sommersemester gemeinsam mit meinem Kollegen V. SCHWARTZ veranstalte.
