Irrefutable Evidence:A History of Forensic Science Michael Kurland
The Nazi fascination with the occult is legendary, yet today it is often dismissed as Himmler´s personal obsession or wildly overstated for its novelty. Preposterous though it was, however, supernatural thinking was inextricable from the Nazi project. The regime enlisted astrology and the paranormal, paganism, Indo-Aryan mythology, witchcraft, miracle weapons, and the lost kingdom of Atlantis in reimagining German politics and society and recasting German science and religion. In this eye-opening history, Eric Kurlander reveals how the Third Reich´s relationship to the supernatural was far from straightforward. Even as popular occultism and superstition were intermittently rooted out, suppressed, and outlawed, the Nazis drew upon a wide variety of occult practices and esoteric sciences to gain power, shape propaganda and policy, and pursue their dreams of racial utopia and empire. 1.

The forest is full of secrets. And who knows them better than Nessa Kurland, a 16-year-old cross-country star with a secret of her own: She can transform at will into a werewolf, and her power grows stronger with every moon. Nessa returns home from a run with her pack to find an FBI raid and the shocking news that her mother, Vivian, is being arrested for violations so serious she may be facing life in prison. What did Nessa´s mother, a small-town vet tech, do to threaten Homeland Security? Vivian´s secret past leads Nessa to discover there is more to her story than she ever imagined. The wolves that are running through Tether´s woods are not the same pack Nessa knew before. These are not all natural wolves. And they are breeding. As the lines between science, nature, and magic fade into one another, nothing is as it appears. And the wolves are not the only creatures in the woods. Nessa´s transformation is only just beginning.... Filled with romance, tragedy, perseverance, and adventure, C. D. Bell´s Chimera is a breathtaking continuation of Nessa´s story, as she confronts the truth of who she is, where she comes from, and what she has to do to survive. 1. Language: English.
