Universal Truth is an expose of hidden knowledge and truths practiced by adepts and spiritual masters since the beginning of time as we know it.

Universal Truth is the key to the kingdom for anyone who's not afraid to venture beyond the known into a world of secrecy and mystery that lay hidden from the common person.

You wont believe what's been hidden from you by the Church, the world governments and the powers that be. This is truly a masterpiece and a cornucopia of light for the ardent seeker of wisdom.

Thinking Outside the Box brings together some of the best and most challenging scholarship about TV genres, exploring their genesis, their functions and development, and the interaction of disparate genres. The authors argue that genre is a process rather than a static category and that it signifies much about the people who produce and watch the shows. In addition to considering traditional genres such as sitcoms, soap operas, and talk shows, the contributors explore new hybrids, including reality programs, teen-oriented science fiction, and quality dramas, and examine how many of these shows have taken on a global reach. Identifying historical continuities and envisioning possible trends, this is the richest and most current study of how television genres form, operate, and change.

Augusta Rohrbach works through the increasing convergences between digital humanities and literary studies to explore the meaning and primacy of the book as a literary, material, and cultural artifact. Rohrbach assembles a rather unlikely cohort of nineteenth-century women writers--Jane Johnston Schoolcraft, Sojourner Truth, Hannah Crafts, Augusta Evans, and Mary Chesnut--to consider the publishing culture of their period from the perspective of our current digital age, bringing together scholarly concepts from both print culture and new media studies.--Provided by publisher
