Hunting Down the Universe by Michael Hawkins
Book DescriptionThis work describes Dr Hawkin's discovery that the vast bulk of the universe is in the form of primordial black holes which had their genesis within the first instant of creation. It is a key cosmological breakthrough that draws together the most significant insights of our era into a comprehensive view of the universe. Dr Hawkins started an investigation 20 years ago into 300 quasars - the brightest objects in the universe - and why they change in brightness. Calculations based on his research showed that 99 percent of the universe is made up of dark objects that cannot be directly seen - some as big as the planet Jupiter, others mini black holes (imploded stars). Their discovery has solved the mystery of what consitutes as much as 99 percent of the universe's mass.

Making Moros, Hardback (May 2013)
Looks at the colonization of Muslim subjects during the early years of American rule in the southern Philippines. This book argues that the ethnological discovery, organization, and colonial engineering of Moros was highly contingent on developing notions of time, history, and evolution, which ultimately superseded simplistic notions about race.
