Right-Wing Populism in America

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/right-wing-populism-in-amer...
Right-wing militias and other antigovernment organizations have received heightened public attention since the Oklahoma City bombing. While such groups are often portrayed as marginal extremists, the values they espouse have influenced mainstream politics and culture far more than most Americans realize. This important volume offers an in-depth look at the historical roots and current landscape of right-wing populism in the United States. Illuminated is the potent combination of anti-elitist rhetoric, conspiracy theories, and ethnic scapegoating that has fueled many political movements from the colonial period to the present day. The book examines the Jacksonians, the Ku Klux Klan, and a host of Cold War nationalist cliques, and relates them to the evolution of contemporary electoral campaigns of Patrick Buchanan, the militancy of the Posse Comitatus and the Christian Identity movement, and an array of millennial sects. Combining vivid description and incisive analysis, Berlet and Lyons show how large numbers of disaffected Americans have embraced right-wing populism in a misguided attempt to challenge power relationships in U.S. society. Highlighted are the dangers these groups pose for the future of our political system and the hope of progressive social change.

From the Cancer Project of the International Association for the Study of Dreams (IASD) come Dream Appreciation and Guided Imagery approaches that can help anyone move into the fullness of living, no matter the circumstances. "This important work is a vital aspect of an integrative approach to medicine which includes looking at all levels of our being and experience. In Dreams and Guided Imagery, Tallulah Lyons provides a path for readers to mine the rich fi elds of dream work in order to actively engage their unconscious inner resources. I highly recommend this book to anyone seeking a tool to interact with dreams and guided imagery as a part of a life practice centered on embracing health and wholeness." - Matthew P. Mumber, M.D, Harbin Clinic Radiation Oncology Center, editor, Integrative Oncology: Principles and Practice. "I know from my many years of research on dreams and from my clinical experience, that dreams are the most connective and creative parts of our minds. Dreams sometimes pick up hints about physical illness, and also emotional problems of which we are not aware in our waking lives; and dreams can help us be more in touch with ourselves. Dreams and Guided Imagery is an excellent and well-written book based on years of work with cancer patients sharing dreams in a group setting. It is full of vivid examples, as well as suggestions and instructions for the reader. I recommend it highly, not only for patients with cancer, but for anyone who wants to learn from dreams in a group setting." - Ernest Hartmann, M.D, fi rst Editor-in-Chief of the journal Dreaming, and author of twelve books, most recently, The Nature and Function of Dreaming, and Boundaries: A New Way to Look at the World

Theology and Science in the Thought of Francis Bacon

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/theology-and-science-in-the...
This study re-evaluates the religious beliefs of Francis Bacon and the role which his theology played in the development of his program for the reform of learning and the natural sciences, the Great Instauration. Bacon's Instauration writings are saturated with theological statements and Biblical references which inform and explain his program, yet this aspect of his writings has received little attention. Previous considerations of Bacon's religion have been drawn from a fairly short list of his published writings. Consequently, Bacon has been portrayed as everything from an atheist to a Puritan; scholarly consensus is lacking. This book argues that by considering the historical context of Bacon's society, and his conversion from Puritanism to anti-Calvinism as a young man, his own theology can be brought into clearer focus, and his philosophy more properly understood. After leaving his mother's household, Bacon underwent a transformation of belief which led him away from his mother's Calvinism and toward the writings of the ancient Church Fathers, particularly Irenaeus of Lyon. Bacon's theology increasingly came to reflect the theological interests of his friend and editor Lancelot Andrewes. The patristic turn of Bacon's belief in the last two decades of the reign of Elizabeth significantly affected the development of his philosophical program which was produced in the first two decades of the Stuart era. This study then examines the theology present in the Instauration writings themselves and concludes with a consideration of the effect which Bacon's theology had on the subsequent direction of empirical science and natural theology in the English context. In so doing it not only offers a new perspective on Bacon, but will serve as a contribution toward a better understanding of the religious context of, and motivations behind, empirical science in early modern England.

Guillaume

https://www.kobo.com/us/en/ebook/guillaume-1...
The Church - powerful and moneyed. The Heretics - zealous and poor. Lyon - a city that might claim to cast the seeds of reformed thinking upon the world. Guillaume of Anjou, formerly an archer fighting with other Angevins in the Third Crusade, is now the manager of a successful merchant house. In his new position, he unwittingly steps into and out of the shadowed world of trade and secrets in Lyon. Guillaume carries the weight of a book in his hands - a book that may well light the flame of the greatest philosophical and spiritual change Europe will experience so that word and sword will cut a swathe through the fabric of life in Lyon. But he has also made an enemy who wants nothing more than revenge. He will fight for his life…"With her customary elegant use of language, Prue Batten plunges us effortlessly into the mercantile houses, twisted alleys and secret shadowy tunnels of medieval Europe. Guillaume is a riveting tale of twelfth century trade, treachery and intrigue." Matthew Harffy, bestselling author of The Bernicia Chronicles.'This is for readers who love the historical fiction of writers such as Wendy Dunn, but yearn for the adventure of an earlier period and the excitement and mystery of ordinary people tangled in dangerous politics.'
