The two political works in this text are the product of a time of intense turmoil in Chinese history. Dating from an epoch in Chinese history known as the ´´Period of the Warring States´´ (4003 - 221 BC), they anticipate by nearly 2000 years Niccolo Machiavelli´s treatises on the same subjects.

Understanding The Lord of the Rings: The Best of Tolkien Criticism is the definitive collection of essays on Tolkien´s masterpiece. The essays span fifty years of critical reaction, from the first publication of The Fellowship of the Ring through the release of Peter Jackson´s film trilogy, which inspired a new generation of readers to discover the classic work and prior generations to rediscover its power and beauty. Fans and scholars alike will appreciate these important, insightful, and timely pieces. Fourteen of the fifteen have been previously published but are gathered here for the first time. The final essay in the volume, ´´The Road Back to Middle-earth´´ by Tom Shippey, was commissioned especially for this collection. Shippey examines how Peter Jackson translated the text into film drama, shaping the story to fit the understanding of a modern audience without compromising its deep philosophical core.

Presenting the essential writings of black lesbian poet and feminist writer Audre Lorde, Sister Outsider celebrates an influential voice in twentieth-century literature. In this charged collection of fifteen essays and speeches, Lorde takes on sexism, racism, ageism, homophobia, and class, and propounds social difference as a vehicle for action and change. Her prose is incisive, unflinching, and lyrical, reflecting struggle but ultimately offering messages of hope. This commemorative edition includes a new foreword by Lorde-scholar and poet Cheryl Clarke, who celebrates the ways in which Lorde´s philosophies resonate more than twenty years after they were first published. These landmark writings are, in Lorde´s own words, a call to ´´never close our eyes to the terror, to the chaos which is Black which is creative which is female which is dark which is rejected which is messy which is...´´ ´´[Lorde´s] works will be important to those truly interested in growing up sensitive, intelligent, and aware.´´ -New York Times

In this detailed look at The Lord of the Rings, author Jared Lobdell examines J. R. R. Tolkien´s methods and worldview by following the thread of three influences: the science of philology, Roman Catholic theology, and the Edwardian adventure story. Tolkien´s knowledge of Germanic and Celtic languages helps explain his use of period linguistics as well as his skill at coining memorable names. The author explores the Christian/Catholic underpinnings of the Rings series, with emphasis on the question of whether the books are set before the Fall of Man. This fascinating look at Tolkien´s creative process is a must-have for all Lord of the Rings and Tolkien fans.

Von Schwarzer Magie und Satanismus bis hin zu gnostischen Sekten und Gurdjieffs Viertem Weg war der linkshändige Pfad Jahrhunderte hindurch mit vielerlei Praktiken, Kulten und Persönlichkeiten verbunden. Stephen E. Flowers untersucht die Methoden, Lehren und historischen Wirkungen des linkshändigen Pfades, angefangen von seinen Ursprüngen in der tantrischen Philosophie Indiens bis zu seinem erheblichen Einfluss auf die heutige Weltpolitik, und legt dar, welche Philosophen, Magier und okkulte Gestalten der Geschichte wahrhaft als Herren des linkshändigen Pfades anzusehen sind.Flowers zeigt, dass der linkshändige Pfad im Gegensatz zum rechtshändigen, der eine Vereinigung mit Gott erstrebt und dafür die Abhängigkeit von diesem in Kauf nimmt, auf der Suche nach einem höheren Gesetz ist, das auf Wissen und Macht beruht. Es ist der Weg der Selbstvergöttlichung und der wahren Freiheit. Beginnend mit hinduistischen und buddhistischen Sekten des Altertums, richtet Flowers den Blick sodann nach Westen und behandelt viele mutmaßliche Gruppierungen des linkshändigen Pfades: die Verehrer des Seth und die jesidischen Teufelsanbeter , die Assassinen und Neuplatoniker, den Hellfire Club, Bolschewiken und nationalsozialistische Okkultisten sowie verschiedene sufistische und andere muslimische, zoroastrische und christliche Häretiker. Anhand einer sorgfältigen Definition der beiden grundlegenden Prinzipien Selbstvergöttlichung und Zurückweisung der konventionellen Auffassungen von gut und böse verdeutlicht der Autor, wer wirklich als Anhänger des linkshändigen Pfades anzusehen ist, folgt den Spuren berühmter und berüchtigter Persönlichkeiten wie H. P. Blavatsky, Faust, dem Marquis de Sade, Austin Osman Spare, Aleister Crowley, Gerald Gardner, Anton LaVey und Michael Aquino und belegt, welche okkultistischen Meister tatsächlich Herren des linkshändigen Pfades waren.Flowers betont, dass der linkshändige Pfad durchaus nicht seinem Wesen nach böse ist, sondern sowohl ein Teil unseres kulturellen Erbes darstellt als auch unserem tiefverwurzelten Wunsch entspricht, frei und unabhängig zu sein und über unser Schicksal zu verfügen.
