THE MAKING OF THE ENGLISH BIBLE
PHOENIX PRESS, 2003

Resumen del libro

The King James Bible, the most famous English-language Bible, was the culmination of centuries of work by various translators, most notably John Wycliffe in the fifteenth century and William Tyndale in the sixteenth. In this enthralling account of the tumultuous politics surrounding the translation of the Bible into vernacu lar languages, Benson Bobrick, a professor from Columbia University, shows how the achievement of Tyndale and other translators had a permanent influence on the English-speaking world. As the historian Macaulay wrote of the King James version: 'If everything else in our language should perish, it alone would suffice to show the extent of its beauty and power.' But the King James scholars relied on Wycliffe and particularly Tyndale, polishing their translations and giving us phrases that are still part of the English language: - 'eat, drink and be merry', 'the powers that be', 'the salt of the earth', 'let there be light', 'and the truth shall make you free', 'the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak', 'the root of all evil'.,'fight the good fight', 'a thorn in the flesh', 'labour of love', 'the fat of the land', 'the sweat of the brow', 'to cast pearls before swine' 'am I my brother's keeper?' among them. ...

THE ART OF WAR
SUN ZI y TZU SUN
WESTVIEW PRESS, 1994

Resumen del libro

The Art of War is almost certainly the most famous study of strategy ever written and has had an extraordinary influence on the history of warfare. The principles Sun Tzu expounded were utilized brilliantly by such great Asian war leaders as Mao Tse-tung, Giap, and Yamamoto. First translated two hundred years ago by a Frenc h missionary, Sun Tzu’s Art of War has been credited with influencing Napoleon, the German General Staff, and even the planning for Desert Storm. Many Japanese companies make this book required reading for their key executives. And increasingly, Western business people and others are turning to the Art of War for inspiration and advice on how to succeed in competitive situations of all kinds.Why has a two-thousand-year-old text proven so valuable in today’s world? Because the Art of War embodies an Eastern tradition of strategy that emphasizes outwitting an opponent through speed, stealth, flexibility, and a minimum of effort. And these time-tested principles work. They have been proven on the battlefield and in the marketplace.Unlike most editions of Sun Tzu currently available (many simply retreads of older, flawed translations) this superb new translation makes use of the best available classical Chinese manuscripts, including the ancient “tomb text” version discovered by archaeologists at Linyi, China.Ralph Sawyer, an outstanding Western scholar of ancient Chinese warfare and a successful businessman in his own right, places this classic work of strategy in its proper historical context. Sawyer supplies a portrait of Sun Tzu’s era and outlines several battles of the period that may have either influenced Sun Tzu or been conducted by him. While appreciative of the philosophical richness of the Art of War, his edition stresses Sun Tzu’s practical origins and presents a translation that is both accurate and accessible. ...

THE JESUS MYSTERIES-. WAS THE ORIGINAL JESUS A PAGAN GOD?
THORSONS (HARPERCOLLINS PUB), 2004

Resumen del libro

The myth of Dionysus bears some resemblances to the the story of Jesus Christ. It compares with the biblical story in the following ways: Dionysus is God made flesh and is hailed as the "Saviour of Mankind" and the "Son of God"; his father is God and and his mother is a mortal virgin who afterwards becomes worshipped as the "Mother of God"; he is born in a cowshed; he drives out demons, turns water into wine and and raises people from the dead; and he rides triumphantly into town while people wave palms to honour him. The date revered by the first Christians as Jesus' birthday was originally that of Dionysus, also the three day Spring Festival of Dionysus celebrating his death and resurrection coincides with the Christian festival of Easter. The last Supper and the Eucharist also parallel Dionysian rites. ... Leer resumen completo

HISTORICAL ATLAS OF THE ISLAMIC WORLD
OXFORD UNIVERSITY PRESS, 2004

Resumen del libro

There is without question immense general and academic interest in the Islamic world at present. After the attacks on New York and Washington in September 2001 and the wars on Afghanistan and Iraq, 'Islamic Fundamentalism' has come to be seen by many people in the West as the primary threat to world peace. Although not all scholars would agree that we are heading for a 'Clash on Civilizations' between Islam and the West, few would dispute that Islamic and Western cultures have evolved very differently. It is impossible to have a real understanding of current Islam without first understanding the historical perspective. Malise Ruthven, author of many acclaimed works on Islam and the Islamic world, including Fundamentalism , A Fury of God: The Islamist Attack on America , and Islam: A Very Short Introduction , and a regular commentator in the print and broadcast media, is ideally placed to provide this perspective. Thoroughly researched and very well written, the Historical Atlas of the Islamic World is concise, accessible, and authoritative. It spans the period from pre-Islamic late antiquity to the present day, incorporating recent patterns of emigration from Muslim-majority countries and the independence of the post-Soviet Muslim states of Central Asia. The maps use the latest design techniques to indicate the shifting nature of frontiers and population densities. In addition to historical maps of the changing internal and external boundaries of the Islamic World, there are maps showing the principle trade routes through which ideas and customs as well as goods were spread. Other maps and charts trace the rise and fall of Islamic dynasties and religious sects, the structure of cities, the distribution of minerals and water resources, agricultural patterns, and archaeological sites. The maps are accompanied by short essays on a wide range of themes, among them: all the countries and regions with Muslim majorities; institutions such as Shari'a (divine law) and fiqh (jurisprudence); philosophy; architecture; costume; the Muslim city; trade, commerce and manufacturing; the decorative arts; marriage and family life; tribal distributions; kinship, and dynastic power; mosque architecture, ritual, and devotional practices; Sufism; modernist and reformist trends; European domination of the Islamic world; Islamic political movments; and oil. ...

INFIDELS
PENGUIN, 2004

Resumen del libro

How did we learn to hate or despise? Simply, because we were taught to. In 638 the Christian Patriarch of the Holy city of Jerusalem called the Muslim Caliph's presence an abomination in the sight of God. Christians and Muslims have since regarded each other warily and have silently thought of each other as 'infidels.' This book traces the long history of this troubled relationship. It was a campaign without end, waged with the pen, through the printing press, by the power of the human voice and on subtle and insidious suggestions in paintings, drawings and engravings. In this brilliant book we see how and why the battle is still being waged today, through the press, books, television, radio and the internet. ... Leer resumen completo

THE WHEEL OF THE YEAR IN ANCIENT EGYPT: CALENDARS AND MOON MAGICK
MOGG MORGAN
MANDRAKE OF OXFORD, 2010

Resumen del libro

This book began life as an extended appendix to 'Supernatural Assault in Ancient Egypt' where it provided additional information on the cosmic tides that ebb and flow through us as they did the ancient Egyptians. It concerns the ritual year and offers a conventional summary of the main principles of the ancient Egyptian cal endar along with examples of seasonal rites. More radically it presents new material on the older Lunar calendar of the preformal times. Here too the author offers rites for a thirteen of the most archaic Egyptian 'neters' - beginning with Seth, Sokar and Hathor. Over the millennia we have lost contact with these tides, and stand alienated from Nature. This first 'Eden' is restorable by a return to these ancient principles. ... Leer resumen completo

THE FIRST MUSLIM
PENGUIN GROUP USA, 2012

Resumen del libro

The extraordinary life of the man who founded Islam, and the world he inhabited--and remade. Muhammad's was a life of almost unparalleled historical importance; yet for all the iconic power of his name, the intensely dramatic story of the prophet of Islam is not well known. In "The First Muslim," Lesley Hazleton brings him vibrantly to life. Drawing on early eyewitness sources and on history, politics, religion, and psychology, she renders him as a man in full, in all his complexity and vitality. Hazleton's account follows the arc of Muhammad's rise from powerlessness to power, from anonymity to renown, from insignificance to lasting significance. How did a child shunted to the margins end up revolutionizing his world? How did a merchant come to challenge the established order with a new vision of social justice? How did the pariah hounded out of Mecca turn exile into a new and victorious beginning? How did the outsider become the ultimate insider? Impeccably researched and thrillingly readable, Hazleton's narrative creates vivid insight into a man navigating between idealism and pragmatism, faith and politics, nonviolence and violence, rejection and acclaim. "The First Muslim "illuminates not only an immensely significant figure but his lastingly relevant legacy. ... Leer resumen completo

AL-QAEDA: CASTING A SHADOW OF TERROR
I.B. TAURIS & CO, 2004

Resumen del libro

Award-winning reporter Jason Burke shows how the threat from Islamic terrorism comes not from a single criminal mastermind, or even from one group. In this revealing account, he characterizes it is a broad movement with profound roots in the politics, societies and history of the Islamic world. Using hundreds of interviews and thousands of documents, Burke shows how "Al-Qaeda" is a convenient label applied misleadingly to a diverse, disorganized global movement dedicated to fighting a "cosmic battle" with the West. This is the definitive account of the mysterious organization, retelling its story from scratch and challenging many myths that threaten the very foundations of the "War on Terror." ...
