originally published by Syracuse University Press (May 2000) Drawing on extensive archival material and oral history, Robbie Lieberman illustrates how grassroots peace activism in the United States became associated with Communist subversion after World War II. This association gave proponents of the Cold War a powerful weapon with which to try to silence the opposition. This weapon - anti-communism - was extremely effective until the early 1960s and its effects linger even today. The persecution of peace activists as subversives dates back to the colonial era, but the specific link between communism and peace developed out of the unique conditions of the Cold War.Communist agitation for peace, American notions of national security and freedom that rested on containing communism at all costs. Not until peace organizations challenged external and internal anti-Communist attacks were they able to achieve a new level of respectability. The end of the Cold War enabled scholars to take a fresh look at the peace movement in the early part of that era and how it was affected by fears about communism, whether imagined or real. With this book, Lieberman seeks to clarify American attitudes about peace and the fate of the peace movement in ways that previous studies have overlooked or avoided.

View: 903

A groundbreaking history of the human mind told through our experience of dreams—from the earliest accounts to current scientific findings—and their essential role in the formation of who we are and the world we have made. What is a dream? Why do we dream? How do our bodies and minds use them? These questions are the starting point for this unprecedented study of the role and significance of this phenomenon. An inves­tigation on a grand scale, it encompasses literature, anthropology, religion, and science, articulating the essential place dreams occupy in human culture and how they functioned as the catalyst that compelled us to transform our earthly habitat into a human world. From the earliest cave paintings—where Sidarta Ribeiro locates a key to humankind’s first dreams and how they contributed to our capacity to perceive past and future and our ability to conceive of the existence of souls and spirits—to today’s cutting-edge scientific research, Ribeiro arrives at revolutionary conclusions about the role of dreams in human existence and evolution. He explores the advances that contempo­rary neuroscience, biochemistry, and psychology have made into the connections between sleep, dreams, and learning. He explains what dreams have taught us about the neural basis of memory and the transfor­mation of memory in recall. And he makes clear that the earliest insight into dreams as oracular has been elucidated by contemporary research. Accessible, authoritative, and fascinating, The Oracle of Night gives us a wholly new way to under­stand this most basic of human experiences.

The one-and-only original, Earl Nightingale’s Strangest Secret endorsed by Nightingale Conant. The Strangest Secret is much more than a wealth-building tool; it is a manifesto for self-actualization and purpose-driven work. In Nightingale’s own words: “The only man who succeeds is the man who is progressively realizing a worthy ideal.” In this book, Nightingale distills his lifetime of research on human motivation into a simple success formula—the very same one that propelled his own achievement. The Strangest Secret is a practical guide for accelerated prosperity so that you can quickly rise to the top, becoming one of the top 5 percent who succeed in your field. Challenge yourself with Nightingale’s thirty-day test for putting this secret success formula into action in your life, and chart your own path to productivity, financial independence, and personal fulfillment. Having grown up during the Great Depression, Earl Nightingale was fascinated by the difference between those who attain high levels of personal, professional, and financial success and those who do not. He devoted his life to searching out a recipe for achievement—a means of predicting success in any area of life. While reading the line in Napoleon Hill’s Think and Grow Rich that “we become what we think about,” Nightingale experienced a watershed moment of self-discovery that resulted in his becoming financially independent by the young age of thirty-five. Make this book your catalyst to the transformation you seek.

Building Your Field of Dreams is both a compelling personal story and a practical and inspiring guide for anyone who has ever hoped for a better life. Mary Morrissey's own dreams were nearly shattered at age 16, when pregnancy forced her into a reluctant marriage that nevertheless became the crucible for remarkable lessons in faith. As she was tested by the near-death of one of her children, by life-threatening kidney disease, and by years of struggling to make ends meet, she clung to her determination to be a minister. Now, with powerful examples from many dream-builders she has known, she shows how anyone can identify their deepest desires, build a partnership with God, confront obstacles and failure, and overcome the mental blocks that keep us from our potential. It's a great message, compellingly delivered by a great teacher. From the Trade Paperback edition.

War No More: Three Centuries of American Antiwar and Peace Writing

View: 777

A first-of-its-kind gathering of the essential texts of the American antiwar tradition, from the Revolution to the war on terror: over 150 eloquent, provocative voices for peace. Library of America presents an unprecedented tribute to a great American literary tradition. War has been a reality of the American experience from the founding of the nation and in every generation there have been dedicated and passionate visionaries who have responded to this reality with vital calls for peace. Spanning from the Revolution to the war on terror, War No More gathers the essential texts of this uniquely American antiwar tradition in one volume for the first time. Classic expressions of conscience like Thoreau’s seminal “Civil Disobedience” lay the groundwork for such influential modern theorists of nonviolence as David Dellinger, Thomas Merton, and Barbara Deming. The long arc of the American antiwar movement is vividly traced in the urgent appeals of activists, made in soaring oratory and galvanizing song, and in dramatic dispatches from the front lines of antiwar protests. The voices of veterans, from the Civil War to the Iraq War, are prominently represented, as is the firsthand testimony of conscientious objectors. Contemporary writers, including Barbara Kingsolver, Jonathan Schell, Nicholson Baker, and Jane Hirshfield, demonstrate the ongoing richness of this literature in the years since September 11, 2001. Featuring more than 150 eloquent and provocative writers in all, War No More is a bible for activists, a go-to resource for scholars and students, and an inspiring and fascinating story for every reader interested in the crosscurrents of war and peace in American history.

“Last night, I had the strangest dream!” How many conversations in your life have started that way? People are fascinated with the movies that play in their head while they're sleeping. Some believe that dreams can predict the future. Others say that dreams depict real life. Still others believe that dreams are a manifestation of what we want to be. Interpreting dreams has evolved over the years to what some consider an art form. We spend one-third of our lives sleeping. In the average lifetime, six years is spent dreaming. That's more than 2,100 days spent in a different world! Every night, we dream an average of one to two hours dreaming and usually have 4-7 dreams per night. Consider some of these other facts about dreams and dreaming:• Everybody dreams. EVERYBODY! Simply because you do not remember your dream does not mean that you did not dream.• Dreams are indispensable. A lack of dream activity can mean protein deficiency or a personality disorder.• Men tend to dream more about other men, while women dream equally about men and women.• People who are giving up smoking have longer and more intense dreams.• Toddlers do not dream about themselves. They do not appear in their own dreams until the age of 3 or 4.• If you are snoring, then you cannot be dreaming.• Blind people do dream. Whether visual images will appear in their dream depends on whether they where blind at birth or became blind later in life. But vision is not the only sense that constitutes a dream. Sounds, tactility, and smell become hypersensitive for the blind and their dreams are based on these senses. The dream world is fascinating full of speculation, hope, and sometimes even fear. We can wake up from a good dream feeling refreshed and hopeful. On the other hand, we can wake up from a bad dream feeling tense and apprehensive.

A deluxe hardcover edition of the astonishing classic of spiritual psychology: this brief manifesto reveals the THREE SIMPLE STEPS to attaining your desires. So SIMPLE you won’t believe it -- until you try it... "Gloriously succinct...the author — whose initials stood for Roy Herbert Jarrett, a Chicago salesman and ad man — distills the positive-thinking enterprise into a (deceptively) simple exercise of itemizing your desires in a list. If approached with maturity, Jarrett’s exercise amounts to a personal inventory-taking and a meaningful assessment of one’s true aims." --Mitch Horowitz, Time.com IF YOU KNOW WHAT YOU WANT YOU CAN HAVE IT . . . With this statement the author known by the initials RHJ. put a dramatic challenge to readers in 1926. His claim was so sensational, so audacious, so begging of argument that one immediately wants to dismiss it. But for one thing: IT WORKS. RHJ's little pamphlet, It Works, has sold more than 1.5 million copies, and won the dedication of generations of readers who have purchased it by the fistful to hand out to friends. The author's three-step method is simplicity itself: 1) Write down your desires on a list. 2) Read it morning, noon, and night. 3) Tell no one about it. But don't be fooled: Tucked within the folds of this unthinkably simple plan are a set of psychological and metaphysical verities that produce extraordinary results. It Works distills centuries of spiritual striving into one tantalizingly concise program. The strange little book that has found its way into the hearts of readers across the world is now available in a special deluxe edition with bonus material. This immortal keepsake edition is suited to a lifetime of reading, re-reading, and note-taking, It Works: Deluxe Edition features: **Paper overboard cover with glossy finish and metallic ink **red gilding on page edges **red ribbon place marker **four-color photographic frontispiece displaying four vintage covers of It Works **full text of It Works **Complete photo reproduction of the first edition of It Works **Bonus chapter: “The 3-Step Miracle: The Story of It Works” by Mitch Horowitz, which explores the identity of RHJ, the source of his program -- and WHY it works.

Revolutionary Love

View: 981

From social theorist and psychotherapist Rabbi Michael Lerner comes a strategy for a new socialism built on love, kindness, and compassion for one another. Revolutionary Love proposes a method to replace what Lerner terms the “capitalist globalization of selfishness” with a globalization of generosity, prophetic empathy, and environmental sanity. Lerner challenges liberal and progressive forces to move beyond often weak-kneed and visionless politics to build instead a movement that can reverse the environmental destructiveness and social injustice caused by the relentless pursuit of economic growth and profits. Revisiting the hidden injuries of class, Lerner shows that much of the suffering in our society—including most of its addictions and the growing embrace of right-wing nationalism and reactionary versions of fundamentalism—is driven by frustrated needs for community, love, respect, and connection to a higher purpose in life. Yet these needs are too often missing from liberal discourse. No matter that progressive programs are smartly constructed—they cannot be achieved unless they speak to the heart and address the pain so many people experience. Liberals and progressives need coherent alternatives to capitalism, but previous visions of socialism do not address the yearning for anything beyond material benefits. Inspired by Herbert Marcuse, Erich Fromm, and Carol Gilligan, Revolutionary Love offers a strategy to create the “Caring Society.” Lerner details how a civilization infused with love could put an end to global poverty, homelessness, and hunger, while democratizing the economy, shifting to a twenty-eight-hour work week, and saving the life-support system of Earth. He asks that we develop the courage to stop listening to those who tell us that fundamental social transformation is “unrealistic.”
