✏The Meanings of Genealogy for Science and Religion Book Summary : This book is a refreshingly unique approach to genealogy and its relationships with Science and Religion. It is the author's answer to the questions posed artistically by the painter Paul Gauguin's masterpiece; ?Where Do We Come From? What Are We Made Of? Where Are We Going?, as reproduced on the book cover. Most religions and cultures make important reference to their genealogies. Science, also, since the advent of Darwin's Theory of Evolution and its subsequent development and culmination in DNA and brain science research, has its own genealogy, telling the story of the pre-history and history of mankind, our migrations and the evolution of our behavior and cultures. The author, trained as both a biologist and lawyer, writing as an independent scholar, examines these questions through the various lenses of genealogy, biology, evidence, religion and philosophy. He considers, first: some basic but little known facts of genealogy; then our common mortality and heritage and brother/sisterhood with all mankind; then the variety of world-views; then the different evidentiary bases for science and religion; then a condensed, but comprehensive view of comparative religion and humanism; then the history of Biblical interpretation and Biblical genealogies; and, finally, the history of mankind as seen by science, including the remarkable recent discoveries of prehistoric man, and brain science. The poetry/prose metaphor is illustrated by insightful examples of both poetry and prose, and brief introductions to some remarkable religious and scientific personalities. The dark side of religion is explored, with contemporary critiques by renowned scholars, and some exemplary poets are referred to with examples of their poetry. This book avoids the combative rhetoric of both religious and scientific extremists, and points the way toward and enriching language and life of religious humanism. This ?new dualism? of poetry and prose reflects the biological facts of our simultaneously emotional and rational selves. Thus, religious humanism provides a natural bridge between religion and science, accessible to everyone. The poetry/prose metaphor can provide a thoughtful rationale for people to keep their religious beliefs and traditions, make peace between religions and also understand and appreciate the modern scientific world without conflict. Thus, genealogy has taken us on a long journey through the history of science and religion, illustrating the mysteries, complexities, and beauties of humanity's existence. The book is well researched and written clearly in an engaging style, with an extensive bibliography. It will be well worth reading by all people who have an interest in genealogy and its relationships with science and religion.

✏Available Language : English, Spanish, And French

✏Old Shites Almanac 2007 Book Summary : An absurdly parodic and brilliantly humorous record of our world, Old Shite's Almanac is packed full of all the horoscopes, astrological predictions, and other pretty much useless superstitious astronomical guff one would expect from an almanac. Each of these elements is then given a surreal twist by the frankly maniacal author, owner of the world's most bizzarrely sudoku-addled brain, the 'soldier, artist, historian, bon vivant, oenophile polymath', Antal Parody. Strangely, out of his observations on obscure saints' days, inland tide tables, and other such inanities, Parody attempts to capture something of man's struggle with the modern existence. Stranger still, his effort is largely successful. This is almost undoubtedly due to the influence of the researcher on this great project, Parody's amanuensis of many years, 'Doctor' Geoff Tibballs, himself the author of numerous high-selling titles.

✏U S Foreign Policy Today Book Summary : This new contributed volume from Steven Hook and James Scott introduces students to the conduct of foreign policy under the Obama administration. Its twelve original essays, written by a stellar cast of experts in the field, address whether the Obama administration’s strategy represents a “renewal” of U.S. engagement. To what extent has this administration succeeded in building both the domestic and international constituencies needed to implement its foreign policy goals? How exactly have Obama’s policies regarding drone strikes, prisoner abuse, extraordinary rendition, and climate change differed from Bush-era policies? Contributors provide detailed assessments of these and many other key questions. Designed to fit easily into courses on U.S. foreign policy, the volume’s first part looks at policy formulation, while the second part tackles policy domains. An extensive bibliography makes a great student resource for further research.
