      Summary
      • This volume contains a collection of previously unknown compositions from Cave 4 at Qumran. These compositions, written during the Second Temple period, use specialized terminology that allows them to be classified as sapiential (or instructional) literature. As such, they are part of the larger genre of wisdom literature, common in the ancient Near East, which includes other collections of sayings and instruction such as the Book of Proverbs, Ben Sira, and the Epistle of James. The documents published here include Mysteries (a manuscript of which was also found in Cave 1), several Meditations on Creation, an Admonitory Parable, Work Concerning Divine Providence, Ways of Righteousness, a number of small sapiential texts, and one text written in the script known as Cryptic A Words of a Sage to All Sons of Dawn. These compositions enhance our understanding of the keen interest in theological and ethical issues (such as God's omnipotence, justice, creative power and design, and man's moral and ethical responsibility to his Creator and fellow men), both of the Qumran community specifically and of Second Temple period Judaism in general.
      • Review: We are grateful to the editors who have prepared these small and often frustrating fragments. The material presented here, especially when it is combined with what is still to appear in DJD 34, offers new resources for the study of "wisdom" in Second Temple Judaism and early Christianity. Eileen M. Schuller, The Catholic Biblical Quarterly it is good to have these important texts in one volume. The thorough treatment given to the texts in this series makes it an invaluable addition to any library ... The book is beautifully presented with plates of each scroll and a helpful concordance. Katherine J Dell, Journal of Theological Studies 50:2 October 1999 This volume will delight all those participating in the ongoing study of the Dead Sea Scrolls.

      Summary
      • The real truth about the Grail, as this entertaining and informative book makes clear, is more exciting than the most fantastic adventure novel. Tracing the Grail's story from its earliest appearance in myth through history, literature, and popular entertainment, this comprehensive illustrated book explores the Grail's secret history and reveals why it continues to fascinate us today. The book unearths the earliest versions of the Grail in myth, examines the part the Grail plays in the events of Christ's Passion, and reveals the truth about the secret societies that "guard" the Grail mysteries. As readers will discover, the Grail also made a mysterious appearance in Arthur's Camelot and disguised itself as the holy bloodline of Jesus and Mary Magdalen, as the philosopher's stone, and as a touchstone of transformation for Jungian psychologists. The book also introduces us to modern Grail seekers and reveals why even the Nazis sought the Grail. This riviting account sets readers straight about the mysterious relic's meaning and purpose.As we discover what the Grail has meant to the men and women of the past, we come to understand the power of this ancient idea in our own life and why we continue to seek it.

      Summary
      • "Italian Neo-realism has inspired film audiences and fascinated critics and film scholars for decades. This book offers an original analysis of the movement and its defining films from the perspective of the cultural unconscious. Combining a Jungian reading with traditional theorisations of film and national identity, Filming The Nation re-interprets familiar images of well-known masterpieces by Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio de Sica and Luchino Visconti and introduces some of their less renowned yet equally significant films. Providing an illuminating analysis of film images across a particularly traumatic and complex historical period, Filming The Nation revisits the concept of national identity and its 'construction' from a perspective which combines cultural, psychoanalytic and post-Jungian theories. As such this book will be essential reading for all students and scholars of film and psychoanalysis"-- ; Provided by publisher.

      • Review: "Using post-Jungian methodology, Donatella Spinelli Coleman shows how, under the intense pressure of the European war and its aftermath, these films embody fluctuating currents emerging from the Italian cultural and transpersonal unconscious of that epoch. She has written a book of great value for students of Film, the History of Culture and the application of Jungian Theory." - John Izod, Professor of Screen Analysis, Film, Media & Journalism, University of Stirling.

This book offers an original analysis of the movement and its defining films from the perspective of the cultural unconscious. Combining a Jungian reading with traditional theorisations of film and national identity, Filming The Nation re-interprets familiar images of well-known masterpieces by Roberto Rossellini, Vittorio de Sica and Luchino Visconti and introduces some of their less renowned yet equally significant films. Providing an illuminating analysis of film images across a particularly traumatic and complex historical period, Filming The Nation revisits the concept of national identity and its 'construction' from a perspective which combines cultural, psychoanalytic and post-Jungian theories. As such this book will be essential reading for all students and scholars of film and psychoanalysis"-- ; Provided by publisher.

      Religions of the West today / John L. Esposito, Darrell J. Fasching, Todd Lewis.

      Author
      • Esposito, John L.
      Published

      Physical description

      Notes
      • Includes bibliographical references and index.
      Summary
      • Ideal for courses in Western religions and world religions, Religions of the West Today covers the same material as the parallel chapters of the authors' longer textbook, World Religions Today, Third Edition. Revealing the significance of religion in contemporary life, it explores major religious traditions-Judaism, Christianity, Islam, indigenous religions, and new religions-as dynamic, ongoing forces in the lives of individuals and in the collective experience of modern societies. This unique volume accomplishes two goals; it connects today's religions to their classical beliefs and practices while also focusing on how these religions have responded to and been transformed by the modern world. The authors combine thorough coverage of the historical background of each religion with up-to-the-minute discussions of its current practices. Each chapter includes an "Encounter with Modernity" section that illustrates the tension between premodern views and modernity. The text is enhanced by numerous pedagogical aids-timelines, maps, illustrations, discussion questions, and a comprehensive glossary of key terms-and more than 100 illustrations and photographs. It also incorporates "Tales of Spiritual Transformation" boxes-which relate the stories of people whose lives have been changed by religious faith-and "Teachings of Religious Wisdom" boxes, which introduce primary source material. Religions of the West Today emphasizes the interconnectedness of faith, culture, politics, and society, providing a peerless examination of the diverse ways in which contemporary human beings are religious. An Instructor's Manual and a Companion Website at www.oup.com/us/esposito provide resources for both students and instructors. Also available to suit your course needs: World Religions Today, Third Edition (978-0-19-536563-4) Religions of Asia Today (978-0-19-537360-8)

      Summary
      • "Once again, Gerald Weissmann, with a firm and easy knowledge of everyone who matters from Auden to Zola, bridges the space between science and the humanities, and particularly between medicine and the muses, with wit, erudition, and, most important, wisdom." --Adam Gopnik, author of Angels and Ages Admired by Nobel prize--winning scientists and literary tastemakers alike, Weissmann will continue to amaze and beguile new and faithful readers as both a masterful commentator on contemporary culture and a transcendent intellectual historian. By turns satirical and insightful, Mortal and Immortal DNA takes us on a nuanced exploration of the western canon, from Greek mythology through Dante to W.H. Auden and offers hilarious insights into popular culture along the way, from Paris Hilton to the true life story of Kathryn Lee Bates, the lesbian poet who penned "America the Beautiful." Gerald Weissmann is a physician, scientist, editor, and essayist whose collections include Epigenetics in the Age of Twitter: Pop Culture and Modern Science; Mortal and Immortal DNA: Science and the Lure of Myth; and Galileo's Gout: Science in an Age of Endarkenment. He is professor emeritus and research professor of medicine at New York University School of Medicine. His essays and reviews have appeared in numerous publications worldwide, including the London Review of Books and New York Times Book Review. The former editor-in-chief of the FASEB Journal, he is now its book reviews editor. He lives in Manhattan and Woods Hole, Massachusetts.

      Summary
      • Jeffrey J. Kripal here recounts the spectacular history of Esalen, the institute that has long been a world leader in alternative and experiential education and stands today at the center of the human potential movement. Forged in the literary and mythical leanings of the Beat Generation, inspired in the lecture halls of Stanford by radical scholars of comparative religion, the institute was the remarkable brainchild of Michael Murphy and Richard Price.Set against the heady backdrop of California during the revolutionary 1960s, "Esalen" recounts in fascinating detail how these two maverick thinkers sought to fuse the spiritual revelations of the East with the scientific revolutions of the West, or to combine the very best elements of Zen Buddhism, Western psychology, and Indian yoga into a decidedly utopian vision that rejected the dogmas of conventional religion. In their religion of no religion, the natural world was just as crucial as the spiritual one, science and faith not only commingled but became staunch allies, and the enlightenment of the body could lead to the full realization of our development as human beings.
      • Review: "The first all-encompassing history of Esalen: its intellectual, social, personal, literary and spiritual passages. Kripal brings us up to date and takes us deep beneath historical surfaces in this definitive, elegantly written book." - Playboy "Kripal tells the story of this beautiful retreat in California's Big Sur region - its history at once sexy, salacious, intellectual and political - with reverence and playfulness.... He is an engaging storyteller and Esalen a worthy subject (a kind of Us Weekly for the discerning intellectual)." - Publishers Weekly "An impressive new book.... Kripal has written the definitive intellectual history of the ideas behind the institute." - San Francisco Chronicle "Kripal examines Esalen's extraordinary history and evocatively describes the breech birth of Murphy and Price's brainchild. His real achievement, though, is effortlessly synthesizing a dizzying array of dissonant phenomena (cold war espionage, ecstatic religiosity), incongruous pairings (Darwinism, Tantric sex), and otherwise schizy ephemera (psychedelic drugs, spaceflight) into a cogent, satisfyingly complete narrative." - Atlantic Monthly"

      Summary
      • The essential Taoist book and one of a triad that make up the most influential religious and philosophical writings of Chinese tradition, the Tao-te Ching is the subject of hundreds of new interpretive studies each year. As Taoism emerges as one of the East Asian philosophies most interesting to Westerners, an accessible new edition of this great work-written for English-language readers, yet rendered with an eye toward Chinese understanding-has been much needed by scholars and general readers. Richard John Lynn, whose recent translation of theI Ching was hailed by the Times Literary Supplement as "the best I Ching that has so far appeared," presents here another fine translation. Like his I Ching, this volume includes the interpretive commentary of the third-century scholar Wang Bi (226-249), who wrote the first and most sophisticated commentary on the Tao-te Ching. Lynn's introduction explores the centrality of Wang's commentaries in Chinese thought, the position of the Tao-te Ching in East Asian tradition, Wang's short but brilliant life, and the era in which he lived. The text consists of eighty-one short, aphoristic sections presenting a complete view of how the sage rules in accordance with the spontaneous ways of the natural world. Although the Tao-te Ching was originally designed to provide advice to the ruler, the Chinese regard its teachings as living and self-cultivation tools applicable to anyone. Wang Bi's commentaries, following each statement, flesh out the text so that it speaks to the modern Western reader as it has to Asians for more than seventeen centuries.
      • Review: Lynn's translation is excellent. He approaches Wang Bi's text as it should be approached, that is as a piece of philosophical writing... [A]n important contribution to our knowledge of commentarial methodology which played a dominating role throughout the intellectual history of imperial China. Journal of the Oriental Society of Australia Lynn's translation is finely crafted, following the high standard he established in his The Classic of Changes: A New Translation of the I Ching as Interpreted by Wang Bi... [An] excellent, high-impact stud[y]. -- Alan K. L. Chan Journal of Chinese Religions ...Wang Bi challenges us to appreciate the many paradoxes in the Tao-te Ching and to warmly embrace its wisdom in the ordinary rounds of our everyday lives.

      Summary
      • Choice Outstanding Academic Title 2014 Scores of books have been written by Western experts, mainly American, looking at the root causes of the conflict between Iran and the US. However, none of them have presented an inside look at this complex relationship from within the Iranian culture, society, and most importantly, the Iranian policy-making system. This gap has been the cause of misperceptions, misanalyses, and conflict, followed by the adoption of US policies that have failed to achieve their objectives. Seyed Hossein Mousavian worked for over 30 years on diplomatic efforts between Iran and the West, serving in numerous official posts, and as a confidante, colleague, and peer to many former and current high ranking Iranian officials, including now-President Hassan Rouhani and Iranian Foreign Minister Javad Zarif. Here the former diplomat gives an insider's history of the troubled relationship between Iran and the US. His unique firsthand perspective blends memoir, analysis, and never before seen details of the many near misses in the quest for rapprochement. With so much at stake, the book concludes with a roadmap for peace that both nations so desperately need.
      • Review: Mousavian offers a history of American-Iranian relations that will be familiar to many scholars; however, Mousavian's unique perspective provides new insights into the relationship. His knowledge of the inner workings of the Iranian political system and political culture provide a previously unavailable account of the history of this relationship. The book demonstrates the primary importance of understanding the "other," and the significance of understanding the politics and culture of rivals [...] a must read for any serious student interested in understanding Iran and the Iranian perspective. -- M. F. Cairo, Transylvania University CHOICE Mousavian (former Iranian diplomat; research scholar, Princeton Univ.; The Iranian Nuclear Crisis: A Memoir) opens with a brief outline of the major events characterizing the positive U.S.-Iranian relations until the Iranian Revolution of 1979, including the admittedly poor decision by the United States in its backing of the 1953 coup and unwavering support of the Shah. The majority of the remaining pages examines the relationship since 1979, exploring the dichotomous cultural and political clash between the two nations. Mousavian does an incredible job of walking readers through the major issues that continue to hamper elusive attempts at attaining peace between the United States and Iran while maintaining a central theme revolving around a "profound mistrust, mis-perceptions, and a lack of mutual understanding." The author concludes by offering a very clear outline, beginning and ending with the need for both sets of leadership to clearly define what the desired end result of a peace process should be-what each side stands to gain and has to offer. This well-researched work written with Shahid Saless is essential to any collection of U.S.-Iranian relations. It is also timely, given President Barack Obama's April 2014 signing of a law that bars entrance to the United States by any foreign diplomat seen as a threat to national security, which includes Iran's choice for United Nations envoy Hamid Aboutalebi because of suspicions of his involvement in the hostage crisis. VERDICT Highly recommended for anyone with an interest in international affairs, current events, or in facilitating peaceful relations with Iran. -- Brenna Smeall Library Journal The ultimate value of the book lies in its insights into how Iranian perspectives of the US relationship have evolved. It is important reading for anyone seeking to understand Iranian thinking, and a valuable reference for those seeking to assess where the US-Iranian relationship may head in coming years. -- Bob Bowker, Centre for Arab and Islamic Studies, The Australian National University Australian Journal of Politics and History It should be required reading for those diplomats involved and for anyone wishing to deepen their understanding of the tortured relationship between Iran and the United States over the past four decades. Iranian political actions are often seen as opaque in the West. Iran and the United States convincingly goes beneath the surface to show the motivations and emotional landscape of Iranian officials in their frustrating dealings with the West. Middle East Journal The future of U.S.-Iran relations will be one of the most important determinants of global stability in the coming years. This is a clear, incisive and thought provoking look at how Iran sees its relationship with the U.S., and a perspective shaped in the crucible of revolution can see its way to normalization of relations. Rich in detail, this is a must read insider account for all those interested in U.S.-Iran relations and future of U.S. foreign policy. Vali Nasr, author of The Dispensable Nation: American Foreign Policy in Retreat An excellent historical summary ... kind to the newcomer and a refreshing reminder to the specialist -- Stephen McGlinchey E-International Relations Seyed Hossein Mousavian's direct experience throughout the 35 years of bitter hostility between the United States and Iran provides an articulate, authoritative understanding of the causes of the distrust, misperceptions, and missed opportunities that have poisoned relations between Iran and the United States--nations that were once close allies. Mousavian, as a student, scholar, and as a diplomat knows both countries well. Most importantly, at this time when an agreement to end the confrontation is possible, Mousavian details a workable roadmap showing how successful negotiations on nuclear issues can lead to the full restoration of civilized relations. Ambassador William Green Miller Hossein Mousavian, a former negotiator for Iran, continues to provide a unique insight into Iran's policy perspectives and negotiating objectives. In Iran and the United States he adds a useful dimension to the literature on U.S.-Iran relations by recounting the history of these two powers as seen from Tehran. This account is fresh, readable and filled with original information and interpretations. Gary Sick, Director, Gulf/2000 Project (G2K) at Columbia University, USA, and author of All Fall Down: America's Tragic Encounter With Iran This wise and fascinating perspective on the history of Iran's relations with the United States, written by a sophisticated Iranian insider, will provide concerned Americans and Iranians with an understanding of the causes of past failures to establish a more constructive relationship and of the current window of opportunity. Frank von Hippel, Professor of Public and International Affairs emeritus, Princeton University In his Iran and the United States, Seyed Hossein Mousavian has provided us with a well-reasoned, superbly written, Iranian perspective on his country's history, politics, its ties to the US and the present, vitally important nuclear negotiations. Mousavian, a former senior official and diplomat in the Islamic Republic, brings to bear the insights of an insider. Valuable, well informed, timely are descriptions which come to the mind of anyone, like myself, who read this book and have followed closely America's complex relationship with Iran, and believe in the importance of finding common ground. Frank G. Wisner, International Affairs Advisor, Patton Boggs, LLP Agree or disagree with his opinions, Hossein Mousavian's book is worth a careful read. His point of view is too rarely heard by Western audiences, and provides a thought-provoking counterweight to the conventional American wisdom about this most difficult relationship. John Limbert, Professor of Middle Eastern Studies, US Naval Academy, and author of Negotiating with Iran: Wrestling the Ghosts of History Part memoir and part analysis, Seyed Hossein Mousavian's Iran and the United States is must reading for anyone interested in understanding the difficult relationship between the Islamic Republic of Iran and the United States. Mousavian, who served in senior posts in the Iranian government, knows the players and directly participated in many of the events he describes, including nuclear negotiations, an attempted assassination by the MEK, and his own arrest by the Iranian government. Mousavian also knows the US, his home for the last several years. Few observers can bring such an acute understanding of both countries' very different perspectives on the world. Ambassador Jim Walsh Seyed Hossein Mousavian provides in a remarkably lucid account the rare opportunity to learn from an Iranian insider who also understands the West. As a former ambassador to Germany, a nuclear negotiator with the current president of Iran, and a scholar at Princeton University, Mousavian has unique credentials to explain the many missed opportunities in the U.S.-Iran relationship. This book is unusually insightful and pragmatic both, recognizing the costs of enmity and the limits of detente. This deeply knowledgeable analysis is as good as it gets.

      • The 36 Stratagems are a unique collection of ancient Chinese proverbs that describe some of the most cunning and subtle strategies ever devised by man. Readers, and specifically investors, at all levels will benefit from this interpretation of the 36 stratagems detailing how to apply them in investment and "economic warfare." HSBC's 36 stratagems encourage flexibility and new ways of thinking about investment issues. "Investor education is not merely about how many lessons can be taught; but how much investors can learn from each lesson. This book combines modren investment and ancient Chinese wisdom in plain language and with interesting stories. It explores investment concepts yet opens your mind and shows you a new way of understanding fund investing." Mark McCombe, Global Chief Executive Officer, HSBC Global Asset Management "There is an old saying, "Gain knowledge for the preservation of wealth." Funds create value, and knowledge of funds will similarly enable investors to create value. The value of knowledge is no less important than the value of capital. For that reason, 36 Stratagems for Investors has set out to show the value of knowledge as a way to capital accumulation and preservation. Readers will benefit from stratagems explained in every page of the book to aid them in their financial investment." Qin Shuo, Chief Editor, China Business News " HSBC Jintrust's 36 Stratagems for Investors is an eye- opener for readers, investors and non- investors alike. HSBC Jintrust has done an impressive job of creating a book with the retail investors in mind; as it puts itself in their shoes to explore issues and solutions as they would. Each of the 36 stratagems is clearly and succinctly told and explained to allow prompt application. May the stratagems depicted in this book gain popularity to become part of the fund culture and investment culture in China, to enable tens of millinos of investors to profit by it." Liu Dong, Deputy Editor, 21st Century Business Herald

      Summary
      • Jay is fifteen years old and a member of the Blake Street Boyz gang. With a knife in his pocket and his best friend Milk by his side, he spends his time fiercely defending their turf. He takes his lessons from the streets and thinks he knows everything about choices. Choose the right gang, and they will protect you. Choose the right clothes, the right chat, the right snacks and you will be respected. But now he's coming of age and he's being given the chance to step up. He must stab and kill a member of a rival gang ...and there are no choices left. This is a story set against the backdrop of London's inner-city tower blocks, where killing can be easier than choosing a chocolate bar; where gang violence rules, and where loyalty can cost you your soul.
      • Review: "Fifteen-year-old Jaylon is a member of the east London Blake Street Boyz gang. His every life choice is subject to its laws, right down to what chocolate bar he eats. To move up to the senior level, the Olders, he must stab someone from a rival gang. He's not keen, but it's not a choice "kill or die". Turf strongly resembles last year's Pigeon English but with a slightly older cast, and instead of a mystical pigeon, a tramp called Leo who dispenses crazy wisdom. It might just be all the pills and weed, but soon Jaylon is talking to people who might not be there, having visions and being lectured by the hologram of Jesus that hangs on his aunt's wall. The "turf" he fights over takes on a spiritual dimension. Lucas cleverly contrasts the banality of school life with the brutal code of the streets as Jaylon ricochets between them towards a nail-biting finale. An exhilarating, tragic tale and a terrific debut." -- Suzi Feay Financial Times "Lucas is good at capturing the claustrophobic world that Jay is ensnared in, where his possibilities and aspirations are crushed by byzantine street rules that even dictate what chocolate bar he buys. Jay makes for a lively, intelligent, wryly funny narrator. The fact he can see the hopelessness of his situation makes his tragic trajectory all the more poignant." -- Siobhan Murphy Metro "Published a year after the London riots, John Lucas's debut takes the estates of Hackney as its contentious turf. A fight to the death between two pit bulls introduces a dog-eat-dog underworld of violence, drugs and gangs. But despite its easily cliched setting, Lucas goes far beyond hoodie stereotypes in this sensitive and unusual teenage novel. As his 16th birthday approaches, narrator Jay is offered the chance to graduate to the Olders of the Blake Street Boyz. But when initiation means killing a classmate, Jay begins to question the rules. In an effort to reform him, Jay has been sent to live with his ardent Christian aunt; her flat is a "Welcome Break for souls" crammed with lurid iconography, including a hologram of Jesus that taunts Jay with life or death. As Jay gets swept up in violent spirals, he no longer knows if the crazy mystical figures he meets are real or merely holograms of his fevered imagination. A powerful and unsettling novel, Turf's biggest success is its protagonist, a character as misunderstood, complex and terrifying as the world he must flee." -- Anna Trench Observer "Turf is not an easy read and it doesn't offer any easy answers. Because there aren't any. But it what does do, is get to the heart of the matter. And that's something worthwhile. Don't you think? Published on the anniversary of the 2011 riots, this is a harrowing but illuminating read" -- http://www.thebookbag.co.uk/reviews/index.php?title=Turf_by_John_Lucas Bookbag "This compelling story sheds light on the lives of a group of disaffected young people, for whom life is cheap and belonging to a gang is everything. It is about loyalty, love, making choices and living with the consequences. An astounding and thought-provoking novel, which contains violence, sex and strong language, it is violent, shocking and heartbreaking." Booktrust
