From such humble beginnings as a one-building school in the desert, UNLV has blossomed into a large urban campus. Much like the school, the basketball team has evolved into a nationally-recognised program. Runnin' captures the complete legacy of UNLV basketball, from the start when Chub Drakulich formed the team, to the hiring of Jerry Tarkanian in the early 1970s, then the four trips to the Final Four, including the 1990 national championship, and the great individual players such as Larry Johnson, Stacey Augmon, Greg Anthony, Reggie Theus, Ricky Sobers, Sidney Green, Armon Gilliam and Marcus Banks. Few programs have been able to achieve the success so quickly as UNLV has. Few programs enjoy the rabid fan support the Rebels have garnered over the years. It's all chronicled by UNLV basketball veteran beat writer Steve Carp, who has covered the team since 1988. This is the most comprehensive and up-to-date look at one of the nation's most successful college basketball programs. It's a compelling, fascinating story, one that is sure to capture the imagination of any basketball fan.

One of the major themes of human population genetics is assaying genetic variation in human populations. The ultimate goal of this objective is to understand the extent of genetic diversity and the use of this knowledge to reconstruct our evolutionary history. The discipline had undergone a revolutionary transition with the advent of molecular techniques in the 1980s. With this shift, statistical methods have also been developed to perceive the biological and molecular basis of human genetic variation. Using the new perspectives gained during the above transition, this volume describes the applications of molecular markers spanning the autosomal, Y-chromosomal and mitochondrial genome in the analysis of human diversity in contemporary populations. This is the first reference book of its kind to bring together data from these diverse sets of markers for understanding evolutionary histories and relationships of modern humans in a single volume.

This book focuses on diversity, culture, and ethnicity as they relate to psychological assessment of Hispanics. It is a how-to guide for clinicians, researchers, and instructors working with Hispanic clients. Each chapter contains an overview of cultural considerations needed for assessing the Hispanic client followed by a specific exploration of the assessment measures available and the research that has been conducted on these measures with Hispanic participants. An exploration of the strengths and limitations of each assessment measure is included. Considering that ethnocultural minority individuals who are of Hispanic/Latino origin make up the largest ethnocultural minority group in the United States, guidelines for working with this population are a must. Given that a large subset of this percentage is composed of immigrants many of whom do not speak English or who have learned English as a second language, special considerations for effective psychological assessment are neccessary.This book fills a gap in the scientific literature by consolidating the research on psychological assessment with Hispanic samples into one comprehensive volume and providing simple recommendations for the psychological assessment of Hispanic clients. An exploration of the general psychological assessment domains (e.g., personality, intelligence) is included with references to research on the major assessment measures used in the field. A more specific exploration of psychodiagnostic assessment measures follows, including the assessment of mood disorders, anxiety disorders, sexual dysfunction, psychosis, etc. Several chapters are dedicated to specialized assessment, including neuropsychological assessment, forensic assessment, and school-based assessment, overall creating the most comprehensive, up-to-date, research-based compendium of psychological assessment measures for use with Hispanic clients.

High school football is one of the identifying institutions of twentieth-century Texas. Many consider high school football to be cast in the state's rough-hewn image. In fact, it is shaped in the image of its coaches. Pigskin Pulpit examines the men who shaped the game -- and generations of players -- in their own image. It traces the development of football and the coaching profession and explains how a schoolboy avocation became a vital part of Texas culture.
