The staying power of the world´s most dashing secret agent and the evolution of the James Bond franchise are explored in this smart yet nostalgic collection of essays. Leading writers, including Raymond Benson, J.A. Konrath, Raelynn Hillhouse, and John Cox, discuss the 10 sexiest Bond girls, the best villains, and the controversy surrounding the latest actor to play James Bond. Topics covered range from the playful - how to build a secret lair and avoid the perennial mistakes made by would-be world dominators - to the thought-provoking, such as Bond´s place in the modern world, his Oedipal tendencies and perceived misogyny, and the unerring allure of the charming spy.

Eight Dynamic Patterns of Living: Base Elements of True Civilization (Essays on Law, Policy and Psychiatry, Vol. 2, 2018) is a study on native cultures with a specific focus on their lifestyle patterns. The study required several years of research on shamanism and aboriginal cultures for providing the evidence that there are eight dynamic patterns of living that are universally respected and applied by major tribal cultures all over the world. The essay concludes that it is these dynamic patterns of living that are the secret why tribal cultures that apply them in their life paradigm live peacefully, respectfully, and integrally and why they are in harmony with nature and live basically without crime and major lifestyle diseases such as cancer, heart disease, or immune deficiency syndrome. The evaluation of multidisciplinary scientific research clearly shows that postmodern international consumer culture triggers worldwide destruction economically, socially, health-wise, military-wise, ecologically, and in other ways. The reason is that our culture - as have all patriarchal dominator civilizations without exception - has lost the continuum balance that the eight patterns provide; it is lacking in modern culture’s philosophy, science, military policy, diplomacy, and foreign policy. From this insight, it becomes evident that the eight patterns are ideally suited to be taken as a guide concept to be implemented in a more wistful international culture of the future, perhaps within a greater paradigm of deep ecology and sustainable growth as Fritjof Capra and others have outlined it in their research publications. This would then have to be worked out on a joint governmental and supranational level and as part of our presently evolving postindustrial global culture. The present study makes a substantial contribution to this noble goal. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Peter Fritz Walter.

An exploration of humans´ symbiotic relationships with plants and chemicals presents information on prehistoric partnership societies, the roles of spices and spirits in the rise of dominator societies; and the politics of tobacco, tea, coffee, opium, and alcohol. Why, as a species, are humans so fascinated by altered states of consciousness? Can altered states reveal something to us about our origins and our place in nature? In Food of the Gods, ethnobotanist Terence McKenna´s research on man´s ancient relationship with chemicals opens a doorway to the divine, and perhaps a solution for saving our troubled world. McKenna provides a revisionist look at the historical role of drugs in the East and the West, from ancient spice, sugar, and rum trades to marijuana, cocaine, synthetics, and even television-illustrating the human desire for the ´´food of the gods´´ and the powerful potential to replace abuse of illegal drugs with a shamanic understanding, insistence on community, reverence for nature, and increased self-awareness. Praise for Food of the Gods ´´Deserves to be the modern classic on mind-altering drugs and hallucinogens.´´-The Washington Post ´´Terence McKenna is the most important-and most entertaining-visionary scholar in America.´´-Tom Robbins ´´The culture´s foremost spokesperson for the psychedelic experience . . . Those who know and enjoy Joseph Campbell´s work will almost certainly appreciate McKenna.´´-L.A. Weekly ´´An eloquent proposal for recovering something vital-a sense of the sacred, the transcendent, the Absolute-before it´s too late.´´-Larry Dossey, M.D., author of Meaning & Medicine, Recovering the Soul, and Space, Time & Machine
Henry Ford once announced to a young schoolboy that it was he who had invented the modern age. Born on a farm in rural Michigan three weeks after the battle of Gettysburg, Ford hated everything about farming as soon as he could understand what it was about. So he turned his attention to the farm machinery that made the family farm run and never looked back. It was his love of machines, then engines, and finally automobiles for which Henry Ford is best known. He designed and manufactured cars that would transform not just his family´s little farm and not just the city of Detroit; the automobile would change the world, ushering in a whole new way of living one´s life. A modern life, to be sure. Beneath this diligent tycoon lay a man of many contradictions. He worked hard to give the average American an affordable car and believed mass consumerism was the key to keeping the world safe from war. Yet he opposed labor unions, supposedly sired a son with another woman, and was an enthusiastic anti-Semite. You will learn about: Henry Ford´s early years Ford´s love for engines The Ford Motor Company and the Model T Disdain of labor unions The anti-Semite problem Later years and death And much more! Follow along as you come to know Henry Ford, the man responsible for putting Americans and the people around the world behind the wheels of their own cars. Was this man a genius or a dominator? Did he want those around him to live free lives with the things he invented, or was he only satisfied when people read his newspaper and obeyed his advice? Listen on, and form your own conclusion. 1.
