Combining his logician's eye with his artistic sensibilities, Thomas Troward was able to communicate truths on the most esoteric of subjects, giving them the intellectual and spiritual respect they deserve. This 1921 collection of brief essays from one of the most respected forefathers of New Age thought covers topics from the sacred to the sublime, shedding new light on mysteries that have challenged mankind for centuries. For any explorer of Being and Thought, Troward here provides invaluable insights into positive psychology, the self, God, beauty, and truth. English judge, philosopher, and painter THOMAS TROWARD (1847-1916) lived most of his life in India, in the service of the imperial monarchy.

What You Need to Know to Save Our Democracy (Large Print 16pt)
Author: Charles Derber
Presents an original analysis of what the real sources of power are in America today Reveals the tactics used by corporate interests to wield hidden power Offers detailed strategic advice for how the Democrats can unite with grassroots social movements and form a powerful coalition for fundamental change Thom Hartmann, Air America radio host and bestselling author of Screwed, says ''Hidden Power is the must-read book of the year. Buy three copies, at least, because you'll want to share a few with friends, and will never want to part with your own well-marked-up copy.'' read the full review Political parties and elections are increasingly political theatre, with real power hidden behind a smokescreen of propaganda, carefully manipulated cultural and religious wars, and voting rituals. But there is another kind of hidden power in America: the grassroots social movements working for progressive change. If the Democratic Party can ally with these movements, America can be returned to its people. Derber sees American history as a succession of regimes, each spanning several administrations. Since the end of the Civil War, regimes of hidden power, in which corporate interests control both parties behind the scenes, have alternated with more open, inclusive and democratic regimes. Derber details how and why these hidden power systems finally collapsed and what determined the types of regimes that succeeded them. Hidden Power reveals how the current regime, possibly the most corporate in history, has maintained power by intensifying the red/blue culture wars, supporting religious extremists, exploiting terrorism fears, and manipulating the electoral process. Will this latest corporate regime be replaced by one that is more progressive? Or it could turn even further right and yield to something even worse, a uniquely American form of fascism? The best hope for positive change lies in an alliance between the Democratic Party and the grass roots progressive movements that, Derber shows, have always been the catalysts for change. Hidden Power concludes with an impassioned argument for why this would be in the Democrats' best interests, as well as the country's, and a detailed program for exactly how to go about it. Thoughtful, eloquent, and compelling, Hidden Power offers real hope for restoring genuine democracy to America.
The inspiration of Ernest Holmes has reached hundreds of thousands of readers through his classic works, many of which are just now becoming available in paperback. Originally published in 1929 as The Bible in Light of Religious Science, this exegesis on the hidden lessons of some of Scripture's best-known verses has been largely unavailable-and even unknown-since the 1940s. Indeed, this edition comes as a brand-new work to the many readers of Ernest Holmes. It is fully reset and redesigned, published for the first time with an index, and includes a new preface to frame the book for the contemporary reader.
Women are searching for significance and status in our generation. There is a holy restlessness concerning purpose as much as the yearning for power. The Hidden Power of a Woman traces the tragedy in the garden where the woman seemingly lost and her garden to the modern day where women are still fighting to regain what they have lost. The authors, Bonnie and Mahesh Chavda, show how modern feminism and religion have both failed in the quest to restore women to their rightful place in our society. What is the answer? The Chavdas show that her power, influence, and insight that was stolen in Eden and hidden for subsequent ages was returned back to her two thousand years ago when Christ cried out, "It is finished!" As the hidden power of God emerges in the woman who fully follows Christ, get ready for empowerment in the church, redemption in society, miracles in the body, and blessings on the human race unequal to any generation previous. The new thing God began when he made a woman as the crowning glory of his creation work and was lost in that same Garden will be restored once again
Kati Marton’s bestselling Hidden Power is an engrossing look at twelve presidential marriages–from Edith and Woodrow Wilson to Laura and George W. Bush–that have profoundly affected America’s history. Marton uncovers the behind-the-scenes dynamics of the ultimate power couples, showing how first ladies have used their privileged access to the president to influence staffing, promote causes, and engage directly in policy-making. Edith Wilson secretly ran the country after Woodrow’s debilitating stroke. Eleanor Roosevelt was FDR’s moral compass. And Laura Bush, initially shy of any public role, has proven to be the emotional ballast for her husband. Through extensive research and interviews, Marton reveals the substantial–yet often overlooked–legacy of presidential wives, providing insight into the evolution of women’s roles in the twentieth century and vividly depicting the synergy of these unique political partnerships.
What should we make of the outsized role organized crime plays in conflict and crisis, from drug wars in Mexico to human smuggling in North Africa, from the struggle in Crimea to scandals in Kabul? How can we deal with the convergence of politics and crime in so-called 'mafia states' such as Guinea-Bissau, North Korea or, as some argue, Russia? Drawing on unpublished government documents and mafia memoirs, James Cockayne discovers the strategic logic of organized crime, hidden in a century of forgotten political--criminal collaboration in New York, Sicily and the Caribbean. He reveals states and mafias competing - and collaborating -- in a competition for governmental power. He discovers mafias influencing elections, changing constitutions, organizing domestic insurgencies and transnational terrorism, negotiating peace deals, and forming governmental joint ventures with ruling groups. And he sees mafias working with the US government to spy on American citizens, catch Nazis, try to assassinate Fidel Castro, invade and govern Sicily, and playing unappreciated roles in the Bay of Pigs fiasco and the Cuban Missile Crisis.
