Mammoth book

I know they're not dinosaurs, *you* know they're not dinosaurs, but I
suspect some people here will be interested in the news anyways, so
I'm passing this along on behalf of a non-subscriber:

Dear Dinosaur Mailing List:

The University of California Press  is pleased to announce the publication

Mammoths: Giants of the Ice Age, Revised Edition

Adrian Lister is a Research Leader in Paleontology at the Natural 
History Museum, London, and Visiting Professor at University College 
London. A leading expert on mammoths, he has published over 120 
scientific papers on Ice Age mammals. He has also studied mammoth 
fossils in museums all over the world, and the behavior of living 
elephants in the wild. Paul Bahn is an independent archaeologist and 
author of _Journey to the Ice Age _(UC Press), and editor of _Atlas 
of World Archaeology_ and _Cambridge Illustrated History of 
Archaeology _among other books.


A dazzling visual record of one of Earth's most extraordinary 
species, this updated and revised edition of _Mammoths: Giants of the 
Ice Age _integrates exciting new research to piece together the story 
of mammoths, mastodons, and their relatives, icons of the Ice Age. 
Incorporating recent genetic work, new fossil finds, new extinction 
theories, and more, _Mammoths _is a captivating exploration of how 
these mighty creatures evolved, lived, and mysteriously disappeared. 
The book features a wealth of color illustrations that depict 
mammoths in their dramatic Ice Age habitats, scores of photographs of 
mammoth remains, and images of the art of prehistoric people who saw 
these animals in the flesh.
_Copub: Marshall Editions_
