research addresses these challenges. The author seeks to
demystify any perceived divide between online and offline
communication, arguing that issues raised in relation to
digital communication throw light on language use and
practices in general, and thus linguistic interventions
in this area have implications not only for users of
digital communication but for linguists° general
understanding of language and society.

Freemasonry is one of the oldest and most widespread
voluntary organizations in the world. This book
introduces the inner activities of freemasonry, and the
rituals, symbols and practices. Looking at the

from the local to the global level, the author considers
perceptions of freemasonry from the outside world, and
navigates through the prevalent fictions and conspiracy
theories. He also discusses how freemasonry has from its
outset struggled with issues of exclusion based upon
gender, race and religion, despite promoting tolerant
openness and inclusion.

The idea of heredity--that qualities of body and mind are
somehow inherited from one-s parents--has profoundly
shaped many aspects of the human experience: from our
attempts to understand variation in personality and
intelligence, and popular attitudes to gender, race, and
social hierarchy, to the methods employed to increase
crop yields and the value of horses and cattle. In this
book,the author traces both the technical study of
biological inheritance and its ideological uses. He
follows the concept of heredity from antiquity into a
modern age of molecular biology in which a brave new
prospect is emerging: the capacity to manipulate the
human genome itself.
