This is the tale of Thomas Jadwin's dream of America. The story occurs during the last half of the reign of England's greatest monarch Elizabeth I and the first decades of her hand-picked successor James I. Thomas' father was a cutler of Welsh ancestry who supplied fine weapons for Nobility. Thomas courts and weds the beautiful and educated fishmonger's daughter, Catherine Pelham. As a wedding gift the Jadwins are given a tenement on the High Street near London Bridge within walking distance of the Bear Baiting Garden and the Globe Theatre. They convert the tenement into a tavern called Saracen's Head. Many of the luminaries of the day, including William Shakespeare, Squanto, and Captain John Smith, come to Saracen's Head to hear the news and raise a tankard of Southwark ale. Inspired by his father's membership in Raleigh's Adventurers for Virginia Thomas buys shares in the company formed to plant the first English colony in America. In this age of famine, plague, war, and the Reformation, Thomas comes to see America as the place where a reconstitution of human society might occur. He actually makes the journey across the Atlantic to the newly founded colony at Jamestown with the Third Supply on the ill-fated Sea Venture.

Vagif Sultanly is one of the foremost representatives of modern Azerbaijani prose and his latest book expresses moral and ethical features specific to modern society such as estrangement, alienation, oblivion, negligence and feelings of uselessness. The main part of the book is a novel entitled "The Dream of Death" which expresses the excitement and anxiety reflected inside the internal human world by the destruction of a town's cemetery to make way for a new highway and the consequent need to relocate the corpses from the old cemetery to the new one. A chaotic unfolding of the events and circumstances around this profoundly unsettling action in the novel allows the author to create a powerful view of a modern tragedy. The short stories entitled "The Morning Mist," "Motherland," "Mirage," "Polar Night," "The Cave" and "A Blind Tie" describe the moral and ethical changes imparted by the social environment to the human characters who are turned into objects of art description.

Northern Europe and North America have dominated the world stage for more than two centuries. Using a wide range of sources, this book provides the first coherent account from a multi-national perspective of the ideas and perceptions that, from the Renaissance onwards, fuelled the North’s rise to prominence, and enabled it to rival the traditional cultural and political hegemony of the South. This includes not only the fascinating conquest of the polar regions, but also the religious upheaval of the Reformation, the changing view of nature engendered by Romanticism, and, not least, the revival of ancient Nordic and Celtic culture. Finally, the book offers an indispensable historical background to current events in the Far North, where the past and the future meet in a complex web of dramatic environmental concerns, the exploitation of natural resources, and the strategies of politics and commerce.

People have forgotten how to breathe out. Caught in a materialistic matrix, humanity has become trapped in an unsustainable pattern of living, breathing in until we are ready to implode. The Earth is laboring under the burden. The time to exhale has arrived. You are an extraordinary person because you are living during an extraordinary time in history. Humanity has reached a critical juncture in its collective development, and many critical issues now demanding our immediate attention: global warming, population growth, culture clash, and more. In Mago s Dream, you will learn to connect to the essence of Mago, the nurturing spirit of the Earth. In the process, you will feel that her essence is your essence, and that through her you can connect to your own highest self. In the book, Ilchi Lee contends that the earth itself should become a central tenant of our human identity. By recognizing ourselves as Earth-humans, we can learn to transcend the cultural and national identities that keep us from living as a single, united humanity. And, by placing the Earth herself at the center of our common value system, we can learn to live in balance with the source of life itself.

A Dream of Peace.The stars of yesterday shine in his eyesThe hopes of a million dreamersTwinkle in the nightHe holds his favorite star In his gazeSending out his deepest wishFrom his inocent baby heartInto the vastness of space and timeThe stars hear his wish The harmony of thier songFills the night with glowing embers Of all the dreams that have come trueAnd as he gazes out into tomorrowThe destiny of time embraces a dream of Peace...The Window There in the distance of a faraway room I sit here and wait I know I will wait a very long time For my dreams are complex My vision is vast and spacious I am far too young to believe in doubt yet old enough to understand A dreamer within a world that's asleep I am Awake within my dream I may sit at this window a very long time Waiting for them to change their minds Waiting for the right code The vibration of a million singing angels A song of a million dreamers waking in the night To sing the song of peace on earth I wait here at my window For the awakening of a beautiful dream How much longer must I wait at my window How much longer must I wait......

Across the bridge of timeExcellentTHIS RUNS A CLOSE SECOND TO THE MOST BEAUTIFUL PASSAGES IVE EVER READ.THE FIRST BEING IN THE BIBLE ITSELF. THIS WAS JUST LOVELY, IT TOOK MY BREATHAWAY. T.S.J.Comment Written 13-Feb-2008 by T.S.J.Athena's messages are clear and concise, profound and yet simple. Optimistic and grounded. The whole book serves as a reminder of what we are and who we can be; this is so easily forgettable in the incredible and often overwhelming age in which we live. Athena's book and messages are further embellished by her striking and effective artwork - in this time of mass-produced, production-line mainstream talent, it is refreshing to experience work of such unique voice and vision. Some of the lines are so candid, it is almost like looking into your own heart and soul - you can't help but think: "I have thought this, or felt like this". Perhaps we should take time to see the world through more child-like eyes. "Earth Prayers, Angels and Dreams" can show us how. This book is great for either reading cover to cover, or dipping into when time is short: either way, you are bound to come away with a profound message and an altered viewpoint. I can't rate this work highly enough; it is a strong, bold and beautiful debut piece and I look forward to seeing where Athena's imagination travels in future publications."says Jon Richards Master Composer Musician and songwriter.

Th e narrative presented provides a source of enlightenment for descendants of the African Diaspora. The past enslavement of Captive Africans was not an accident, but fulfillment of Biblical prophecy. The Prophet Moses warned in scripture, that, the Hebrews will be enslaved in the latter days, by a nation of fierce countenance, and taken away naked in ships. A yoke of iron will be on their necks, no regard for the old or favour for the young (Deut. 28:48-50; 64-68). Th e 400 years of Hebrew slavery in Egypt, is paralled with 400 years the Atlantic Slave Trade endured for African people. The Ancestral history of the African Diaspora provides knowledge of a legacy of greatness as well as an inheritance of sad consequences brought about through a curse for disobedience. Th e text will show that the Anglo American world power fits the description of the last world power that will enslave the people who were delivered, from Egyptian bondage. Illustrations and maps provide information on ancient lands and the people of scripture. It challenges the accepted view of the masses on characters of scripture, and will show from the Bible and secular historical accounts where descendants of a family that started out in Mesopotamia can be found today. Black People need to recognize their roots in order to grow, and become fi t for the services they were created to perform. The journey will aquaint readers with the contributions Africans made to the world,and the inherited legacy theyve been denied.

A superbly original collection of short stories with an esoteric bias. Each story explores in different situations, often humorous, a paradoxical edge of experience, when the inner and outer life is about to transform; at any stage in life. These stories, light-hearted and profound, were rough hewn by the well known mind-body-spirit author Alan Jacobs, and turned into literary gems by Jane Adams, an artist, poet and author. They express this fertile dialogue, in the inner life. They include two childrens' stories for the ever young in spirit. Major influences are Gurdjieff-Ouspensky, Douglas Harding, J.Krishnamurti, and a rich blend of wisdom from the east and west.

On Soul and Earth offers an original perspective on the relationship between the environment and the human psyche. Physical spaces contribute to the building of identity through personal experience and memory. Places evoke emotions and carry their own special meanings. Elena Liotta and her contributors also explore the neglected topics of migration and travel. The author has extensive clinical experience of working with patients from a wide variety of national and cultural backgrounds. Globalization is present in the clinical office as well as in the wider world and the transformations currently being wrought in the areas of cultural and national identity also impact on clinical work. This book will be of interest to Jungian analysts as well as psychotherapists and mental health professionals, especially those who are addressing transcultural and multicultural issues including voluntary or enforced migration. It will also appeal to urban planners, architects and those interested in environmental issues.

Earth's last hope? The Arc, a being of immense power, trapped within a continuum too small, fights for its freedom. Its monumental struggle will touch a few select individuals on Earth - and in doing so, change their lives forever. The Arc may also be the last hope for humanity's survival. Author's Note: The volumes of this series can each be read independently of the others. The feature that unifies them is their individual observations of science fiction's sub-genre: "space opera," which the editors David G. Hartwell and Kathryn Cramer define as "colorful, dramatic, large-scale science fiction adventure, competently and sometimes beautifully written, usually focused on a sympathetic, heroic central character and plot action, and usually set in the relatively distant future, and in space or on other worlds, characteristically optimistic in tone. It often deals with war, piracy, military virtues, and very large-scale action, large stakes."
