In 1958, a successful businessman named Robert Mornroe began to have experiences that drastically altered his life. Unpredictably, and without his willing it, Monroe found himself leaving his physical body to travel via a "second body" to locales far removed from the physical and spiritual realities of his life. He was inhabiting a place unbounded by life or death. Monroe recorded these experiences in two bestselling, landmark books, Journeys Out of the Body and Far Journeys. Ultimate Journey, his final and career-defining work, takes us further than we thought possible--and reveals to us what it all means. Ultimate Journey charts that area which lies "over the edge," beyond the limits of the physical world. It presents us with a map of the "interstate"--the route that opens to us when we leave our physical lives, with their entry and exit ramps, their singposts and their hazards. It also tells us how Monroe found the route and travelled it, and uncovered the reason and the purpose of this pioneering expedition. It is a journey that reveals basic truths about the meaning and purpose of life--and of what lies beyond. After six hardcover printings, the trade paperback edition of Ultimate Journey, will offer an even wider range of readers this exhilarating reading experience, the masterwork of one of the most daring and original thinkers and explorers of our time.

In 1971 Doubleday published a book called Journeys Out of the Body, a Virginia businessman's memoir of his weird and wonderful adventures on other planes of reality. That book, which has sold more than a million copies, and that man, Robert Monroe, helped cement the concept of astral travel into the American psyche and made the "out-of-body experience" a household word. Monroe not only helped others understand this state of being, but through his research on binaural beats and his development of the technology known as Hemi-Sync, he made the OBE accessible through programs at The Monroe Institute, which is attended by thousands of people each year. However, Monroe made consciousness research more than an esoteric thrill ride. He put his technology to practical use by creating frequencies that have helped people with everything from meditation and learning, to insomnia, quitting smoking, and pain control.

From Christian believers in the Apocalypse and the Rapture to New Age enthusiasts of prophecies concerning the year 2012, Doomsday lore has been a part of culture, a myth that colors how we perceive the world. Why do we remain obsessed with Doomsday myths even when they fail to materialize? What if we haven’t recognized the true message of these myths? Blending history, psychology, metaphysics, and story, philosopher and author Joseph Felser explores the spiritual questions raised by these enduring myths. Along the way he consults the work of Joseph Campbell, Carl Jung, Marie-Louise von Franz, Black Elk, Wovoka, Itzhak Bentov, Jane Roberts, Seth, Hermann Hesse, Ingo Swann, David Bohm, Fred Alan Wolf, J. Allen Boone, William James, and Robert Monroe through ever-widening circles of understanding. Felser suggests that our obsession with “The End of the World” hides a repressed, healthy longing for reconciliation with our inner and outer worlds--with nature and our own natural spirituality. He urges us to recognize and act upon that longing. When we begin to listen to nature’s voice and pay heed to our own dreams--including visions, intuitions, and instinctive promptings--the greatest revolution in all history will unfold. We can create a future of our own choosing, a beginning rather than an ending.

Wie geht man damit um, wenn die eigenen Kinder ganz anders sind als man selbst, was bedeutet das für sie und ihre Familien? Und wie akzeptieren wir und unsere Gesellschaft außergewöhnliche Menschen? Ein eindrucksvolles Buch über das Elternsein, über die Kraft der Liebe, aber auch darüber, was unsere Identität ausmacht. Der Bestsellerautor Andrew Solomon hat mit über 300 Familien gesprochen, deren Kinder außergewöhnlich oder hochbegabt sind, die das Down-Syndrom haben oder an Schizophrenie leiden, Autisten, taub oder kleinwüchsig sind. Ihre Geschichten sind einzigartig, doch ihre Erfahrungen des „Andersseins“ sind universell. Ihr Mut, ihre Lebensfreude und ihr Glück konfrontieren uns mit uns selbst und lassen niemanden unberührt. »Solomon hat eine Ideengeschichte geschrieben, die zur Grundlage einer Charta der psychologischen Grundrechte des 21. Jahrhunderts werden könnte... Erkenntnisse voller Einsicht, Empathie und Klugheit.« Eric Kandel »Das vielleicht größte Geschenk dieses monumentalen, so faktenreichen wie anrührenden Werks besteht darin, dass es zum permanenten Nachdenken anregt.« Philip Gourevitch »Dieses Buch schießt einem Pfeil um Pfeil ins Herz.« The New York Times »Dies ist eines der außergewöhnlichsten Bücher, die ich in letzter Zeit gelesen habe: mutig, einfühlsam und zutiefst menschlich... Seine Geschichten sind von meisterhafter Feinfühligkeit und Klarheit.« Siddhartha Mukherjee, Autor von ›Der König aller Krankheiten‹

The resurgence of "world literature" as a category of study seems to coincide with what we understand as globalization, but how does postcolonial writing fit into this picture? Beyond the content of this novel or that, what elements of postcolonial fiction might challenge the assumption that its main aim is to circulate native information globally? The Long Space provides a fresh look at the importance of postcolonial writing by examining how it articulates history and place both in content and form. Not only does it offer a new theoretical model for understanding decolonization's impact on duration in writing, but through a series of case studies of Guyanese, Somali, Indonesian, and Algerian writers, it urges a more protracted engagement with time and space in postcolonial narrative. Although each writer—Wilson Harris, Nuruddin Farah, Pramoedya Ananta Toer, and Assia Djebar—explores a unique understanding of postcoloniality, each also makes a more general assertion about the difference of time and space in decolonization. Taken together, they herald a transnationalism beyond the contaminated coordinates of globalization as currently construed.
