Gay Mysticism: Ecstasy and Transfiguration Thro...

Discover the Holy Passion of Gay Mystics Of the world's true mystics - seekers who achieve a direct union with God - a staggering proportion have lived and loved as gay men and women. Through their sumptuous love poetry, their daring explorations of Tantra (sacred sex), and heroic devotion to their faith - despite their estranged status within society - gay mystics have permanently altered and enriched the spiritual landscape of our time. Now scholar and bestselling author Andrew Harvey illuminates the lives and loves of these mystical outsiders on Gay Mysticism. Looking back to the dawn of Western religion, Harvey shows that, far from being rejected, homosexuals in pre-Christian cultures were seen as divine and even priestly - a mysterious fusion of masculine and feminine qualities. Drawing from many sources, Harvey uncovers the rich and long-hidden history of our most important gay mystics, including the Sufi poet Rumi, the American poet and social worker Walt Whitman, the English essayist Edward Carpenter, Plato, and others. Here is the never-before-told story of these "spiritual adventurers" and the sacred democracy they bravely explored, framed by the most ecstatic and hallucinatory love poetry the world has ever known. 1.

A book for this moment: Both an assessment of our current political leadership and a vision of those who can bring substantive change.Who are the new progressive leaders emerging to lead the post-Trump return to democracy in America? National political correspondent and award-winning author D.D. Guttenplan's The Next Republic is an extraordinarily intense and wide-ranging account of the recent fall and incipient rise of democracy in America.The Next Republic profiles nine successful activists who are changing the course of American history right now:New labor activist and author Jane McAleveyRacial justice campaigner (and mayor of Jackson, Mississippi) Chokwe Antar Lumumba Environmental activist (and newly elected chair of the Nebraska Democratic Party) Jane KleebChicago’s first openly gay Latino public official Carlos Ramirez-Rosa#ALLOFUS co-founder Waleed ShahidYoung architects of Bernie Sanders amazing rise, digerati Corbin Trent and Zack Exley, founders of Brand New CongressAuthor and anti-corruption crusader Zephyr TeachoutAdditionally, the introduction to The Next Republic ties in the election and first year of the Trump presidency to the current rise of populism of the left, and there are three historical chapters that describe key moments in American history that shed light on current events: the Whiskey Rebellion, the Lincoln Republic, and the Roosevelt Republic. Guttenplan understands the magnitude of the problem of democracy, and at the same time the great possibilities for its resurgence. Like a cross between George Packer's The Unwinding and John F. Kennedy's Profiles in Courage, The Next Republic is both unyielding and deeply hopeful, the first audiobook to come out of the Trump ascendency that stakes a claim for seeing beyond it. 1.

A World Destroyed: Hiroshima and Its Legacies ,...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

Continuously in demand since its first, prize-winning edition was published in 1975, this is the classic history of Hiroshima and the origins of the arms race, from the development of the American atomic bomb to the decision to use it against Japan and the beginnings of U.S. atomic diplomacy toward the Soviet Union. In the preface to this edition, the author describes and evaluates the lengthening trail of new evidence that has come to light concerning these often emotionally debated subjects. He also invokes his experience as a historical advisor to the controversial, aborted 1995 Enola Gay exhibit at the National Air and Space Museum of the Smithsonian Institution, which leads him to analyze the impact on American democracy of one of the most insidious legacies of Hiroshima: the political control of historical interpretation. 1.

Modern Bodies: Dance and American Modernism fro...
9,95 € *
ggf. zzgl. Versand

In 1930, dancer and choreographer Martha Graham proclaimed the arrival of "dance as an art of and from America". Dancers such as Doris Humphrey, Ted Shawn, Katherine Dunham, and Helen Tamiris joined Graham in creating a new form of dance, and, like other modernists, they experimented with and argued over their aesthetic innovations, to which they assigned great meaning. Their innovations, however, went beyond aesthetics. While modern dancers devised new ways of moving bodies in accordance with many modernist principles, their artistry was indelibly shaped by their place in society. Modern dance was distinct from other artistic genres in terms of the people it attracted: white women (many of whom were Jewish), gay men, and African American men and women. Women held leading roles in the development of modern dance on stage and off; gay men recast the effeminacy often associated with dance into a hardened, heroic, American athleticism; and African Americans contributed elements of social, African, and Caribbean dance, even as their undervalued role defined the limits of modern dancers' communal visions. Through their art, modern dancers challenged conventional roles and images of gender, sexuality, race, class, and regionalism with a view of American democracy that was confrontational and participatory, authorial and populist. The book is published by University of North Carolina Press. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Celeste Lawson. Audio sample: http://samples.audible.de/bk/redw/000089/bk_redw_000089_sample.mp3.

9,95 € *

This is a comprehensive and well-researched paper that should encourage those working to preserve marriage as an institution that strengthens our society. Francis Cardinal George, O.M.I., Archbishop of Chicago The paper on marriage written by Alan Wisdom titled, "Is Marriage Worth Defending," has been on my own interest-screen since January, 2011. This likeable and readable paper of some note and considerable interest on the subject of traditional marriage, with a section on Gay Marriage, was originally produced in 2009 by Institute on Religion and Democracy as one of its Mt. Nebo papers. The Institute, a conservative think-tank, produces a few papers and offers thoughts, press releases, and talks to groups and the press about religious issues like marriage - the traditional kind.Surprisingly, as this writer spent some time talking via email and in person with others on the subject of marriage, it came to pass that most were obsessed with the subject of Gay Marriage, and they turned to that as their subject in conversations, ignoring the more traditional kind. This is so even if they themselves were married in a Church, under vows and the part of which offered their relationship as a couple reamains in the eyes of Christ, even in Christ Himself, as well as in their Christian Church. 1.

9,95 € *

In this hour, philosopher Cornel West is one of the most visible public intellectuals in the U.S. Tavis Smiley is – after Oprah – the best known black media figure in the country. They co-host a weekly public radio talk show, in which they frequently take on the mainstream media and the political establishment. Both of which they blame for ignoring the disenfranchisement of the working poor. Steve Paulson talks with them about the state of American democracy. Then, Vice President Joe Biden has called him a “high tech terrorist.” Secretary of State Hillary Clinton says his work “tears at the fabric of responsible governments.” His supporters include the hacker group Anonymous, which brought down the websites of Visa, Mastercard and PayPal in his name. We’re talking about Julian Assange, the founder of Wikileaks and one of the most controversial figures of our time. Whether you agree with him or not, Assange’s work grows out of a strong commitment to using information technology to foster democracy. Anne Strainchamps reached Assange in England, where he’s under house arrest. He spoke with her outdoors, from a cell phone, on a windy day.Next, historian John D'Emilio is the author of Lost Prophet: The Life and Times of Bayard Rustin. D'Emilio tells Jim Fleming that Rustin was crucial to the civil rights movement but has been forgotten because he was gay. And finally, Keli Carender is a Seattle area blogger considered by many to be the very first Tea Party activist. She tells Steve Paulson what the first protests were like.
