Description :


The classic collection of essays for those seeking spiritual wisdom from the religious scholar, Trappist monk, and author of The Seven Storey Mountain. A recapitulation of his earlier work Seeds of Contemplation, this collection of sixteen essays plumbs aspects of human spirituality. Merton addresses those in search of enduring values, fulfillment, and salvation in prose that is, as always, inspiring and compassionate. “A stimulating series of spiritual reflections which will prove helpful for all struggling to find the meaning of human existence and to live the richest, fullest, and noblest life” (Chicago Tribune). Praise for Thomas Merton “He is perhaps the proper patron saint of our information-saturated age, of we who live and move and have our being in social media, and then, desperate for peace and rest, withdraw into privacy and silence, only to return. As we always will.”—The New Yorker “Merton wrote of ageless spiritual life and religious devotion with the knowledge of a modern.”—The New York Times “It is undoubtedly one of the most significant accounts of conversion from the modern temper to God that our time has seen.”—America Magazine on The Seven Storey Mountain

Description :


Australia is the planet’s sole island continent. This book argues that the uniqueness of this geography has shaped Australian history and culture, including its literature. Further, it shows how the fluctuating definition of the island continent throws new light on the relationship between islands and continents in the mapping of modernity. The book links the historical and geographical conditions of islands with their potent role in the imaginary of European colonisation. It prises apart the tangled web of geography, fantasy, desire and writing that has framed the Western understanding of islands: their real and material conditions and their symbolic resonance from antiquity into globalised modernity. The book also traces how this spatial imaginary has shaped the modern 'man' who is imagined as being the island's natural inhabitant or mirror. Importantly, the book challenges these habits of thought by their relocation within larger topological and imaginary visions from islanders themsleves.

This book examines Iceland vis-à-vis international affairs, with special focus on immigration, foreign aid, Arctic policy, climate change and Iceland´s international image, identity and perception. All issues that play an important role in Iceland´s foreign and domestic policy. This book addresses Iceland as a small state from a variety of perspectives offered by academics and officials. In this book, the authors explore how Iceland’s domestic and international behaviour is marked by its smallness, suggesting that the Icelandic perspective is perhaps more idiosyncratic than international.

Description :


"The sun is setting in America, and darkness is falling. Our nation needs knights." Truth is under assault in America, causing her to weaken from within. In NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND, Dex Bahr argues that at no time in our history is it more crucial for Christian men to have the courage to be knights in defense of God, country and family. Bahr illuminates readers to the hostile spiritual and ideological forces that have hijacked faith, education, politics and media and why they must be defeated Praise for NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND: "I highly recommend this book for the author's passion and heartfelt desire for the Christian man to not be passive, but to be actively involved in his Christian life. We are living in a world of decay and though we will not be able to stop it from its downward spiral, we have the chance to slow down its course, and we begin with a good comprehension and knowledge of our situation. NO CHRISTIAN MAN IS AN ISLAND thoughtfully addresses these issues and clearly challenges us to a passionate pursuit of God. The opportunity to be a hero of God is out there, just go and do it. 'The world has yet to see what God could do to a fully surrendered man.' By Henry Varley (friend of D.L. Moody)." -Jofri Frigillana, M. Div.; Th. M.

Description :


This Modern Library edition contains all of John Donne's great metaphysical love poetry. Here are such well-known songs and sonnets as "A Valediction: Forbidding Mourning," "The Extasie," and "A Nocturnall Upon S. Lucies Day," along with the love elegies "Jealosie," "His Parting From Her," and "To His Mistris Going to Bed." Presented as well are Donne's satires, epigrams, verse letters, and holy sonnets, along with his most ambitious and important poems, the Anniversaries. In addition, there is a generous sampling of Donne's prose, including many of his private letters; Ignatius His Conclave, a satiric onslaught on the Jesuits; excerpts from Biathanatos, his celebrated defense of suicide; and his most famous sermons, concluding with the final "Death's Duell." "We have only to read [Donne]," wrote Virginia Woolf, "to submit to the sound of that passionate and penetrating voice, and his figure rises again across the waste of the years more erect, more imperious, more inscrutable than any of his time."

Description :


Inspired by feminist scholars who revolutionized our understanding of women's gender roles, the contributors to this pioneering book describe how men's proscribed roles are neither biological nor social givens, but rather psychological and social constructions. Questioning the traditional norms of the male role (such as the emphasis on aggression, competition, status, and emotional stoicism), they show how some male problems (such as violence, homophobia, devaluation of women, detached fathering, and neglect of health needs) are unfortunate by-products of the current process by which males are socialized. By synthesizing the latest research, clinical experience, and major theoretical perspectives on men and by figuring in cultural, class, and sexual orientation differences, the authors brilliantly illuminate the many variations of male behavior. This book will be a valuable resource not just for students of gender psychology in any discipline but also for clinicians and researchers who need to account for the relationship between men's behavior and the contradictory and inconsistent gender roles imposed on men. This new understanding of men's psychology is sure to enhance the work of clinical professionals-including psychologists, psychiatrists, social workers, counselors, and psychiatric nurses-in helping men reconstruct a sense of masculinity along healthier and more socially just lines.
