Download or read book A New World in Our Hearts written by Noam Chomsky and published by PM Press. This book was released on 2022-04-12 with total page 160 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: An interview with Noam Chomsky is a bit like throwing batting practice to Babe Ruth. What you lob in, he will hammer out. This conversational interview by Michael Albert, who has been close to Chomsky for roughly half a century and talked with him many hundreds of times, spans a wide range of topics including journalism, science, religion, the racist foundations of American society, education as indoctrination, issues of class and resistance, colonialism, imperialism, and much more. The thread through it all is that every topic—and the list above takes us just about halfway through this book—reveals how social systems work, what their impact on humanity is, and how they are treated by the elite, mainstream intellectuals, and leftists. It gets personal, theoretical, and observational. The lessons are relevant to all times, so far, and pretty much all places, and Chomsky’s logical scalpel, with moral guidance, is relentless.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: From master baker, cook, and Zen priest Edward Espe Brown comes a collection of timeless essays on Zen, food, and life itself. Brown was among the Westerners ordained as priest by Shunryu Suzuki Roshi before his passing in 1971. Suzuki hoped that Zen might be transformed into a vibrant new form in the West--and in The Most Important Point, Brown fulfills his teacher’s wish with 60 essays that are distinctly American yet preserve the roots of traditional Japanese Zen. ?Drawing from his time in the kitchen and on the cushion, Brown explores a range of topics, from basic sitting practice to making the “perfect” biscuit and much more. “In the words of my teacher,” reflects Brown, “the most important point is to find out what is the most important point.” Flavored with wise insights and irreverent humor, The Most Important Point brings together a treasury of teachings to inspire your own discovery.

This book was released on 2016-03-31 with total page 782 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After the death of its founder in 1865, the Society of the Sacred Heart experienced exceptional recruitment and expansion, and departure from France of more than 2500 religious at the beginning of the century. Its story is that of the thousands of women who joined it to root their lives in its charism. In the forty countries where they have been sent, they have had to confront liberalism and anti-clericalism, revolution, the effects of Nazism and Marxism and world wars that destroyed their houses and scattered their members. After the Second Vatican Council, the elimination of cloister opened new fields of apostolic work to the Society. This book shows how the congregation developed amid internal crises, which did not differ from those in the Church and civil society, and how from these crises there emerged little by little a new way to be a Religious of the Sacred Heart.

Henry did his best to save her life, but what happened would change the course of his life. Delve into an important story that’s been forgotten for too long, and gain a clearer picture of what the South was like for blacks before and during the nation’s split with Belonging: The Civil War’s South We Never Knew.

This book was released on 2012-01-17 with total page 208 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: Motivated by their patriotism, the Richmond Ladies were willing to make the necessary sacrifices for the Southern cause. Many sent their husbands and sons to fight for the glory of the South. However, as the war progressed, their sacrifices became harder and harder to bear. They faced shortages of food, struggled to find adequate housing, and, in some cases, endured the ultimate price of losing husbands, sons, and close relatives. As Richmond was evacuated, they braced themselves for military occupation and reconstruction. With the loss of their slaves, wealth, social standing, and homes, they entered into a new world order with few familiar aspects. Through their diaries and recollections, their story of courage and commitment to survive in an ever changing world is told. Neal Wixson selected detailed, poignant and sentimental excerpts from some of the most important accounts of Richmond during the Civil War which succeeds in capturing much of the flavor of the Confederate capital as seen through womens eyes.

Download or read book The New Model Army written by Ian Gentles and published by Yale University Press. This book was released on 2022-03-22 with total page 346 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: The definitive account of the superior fighting force that powered the English Revolution The New Model Army was one of the most formidable fighting forces ever assembled. Formed in 1645, it was crucial in overthrowing the monarchy and propelling one of its most brilliant generals, Oliver Cromwell, to power during the English Revolution. Paradoxically, it was also instrumental in restoring the king in 1660. But the true nature of this army has long been debated. In this authoritative history, Ian Gentles examines the full scope of the New Model Army. As a fighting force it engineered regicide, pioneered innovative military tactics, and helped to keep Cromwell in power as Lord Protector until his death. All the while, those within its ranks promoted radical political ideas inspired by the Levellers and held dissenting religious beliefs. Gentles explores how brilliant battlefield maneuvering and logistical prowess contributed to its victories—and demonstrates the vital role religion played in building morale and military effectiveness.
