Dreams have been taken seriously in China for at least three millennia. Wandering Spirits is a translation and study of the most comprehensive work on dream culture in traditional China—Lofty Principles of Dream Interpretation (Mengzhan yizhi), compiled in 1562 by Chen Shiyuan and periodically reprinted up to the modern era. The best introduction to the diversity of ideas held by the educated class about dreams, this unique treatise compiles various theories, Chen's own comments concerning the nature of dreams and their role in waking life, and almost seven hundred examples assembled from a wide range of literary sources. This annotated translation is accompanied by a full-length introduction that surveys the evolution of Chinese dream culture and the role of Chen Shiyuan and his encyclopedia.

It is common to think of the Arctic as remote, perched at the farthest reaches of the world—a simple and harmonious, isolated utopia. But the reality, as Janne Flora shows us, is anything but. In Wandering Spirits, Flora reveals how deeply connected the Arctic is to the rest of the world and how it has been affected by the social, political, economic, and environmental shifts that ushered in the modern age. In this innovative study, Flora focuses on Inuit communities in Greenland and addresses a central puzzle: their alarmingly high suicide rate. She explores the deep connections between loneliness and modernity in the Arctic, tracing the history of Greenland and analyzing the social dynamics that shaped it. Flora’s thorough, sensitive engagement with the families that make up these communities uncovers the complex interplay between loneliness and a host of economic and environmental practices, including the widespread local tradition of hunting. Wandering Spirits offers a vivid portrait of a largely overlooked world, in all its fragility and nuance, while engaging with core anthropological concerns of kinship and the structure of social relations.

When Haley McGraw’s dad looses his CEO position with a well known computer company to the boss’s nephew, her whole family’s life begins to spiral out of control. The shock of loosing his job title to a much younger man is more than he can stand. And then, one thing leads to another a legal separation from his wife, and every other weekend with his children. But Haley McGraw never thought she’d have to fight demonic spirits while getting her homework or while in the bathroom getting ready for school! This would be something she’d never take for granted again! What’s more, her brother Luke, as well as her mom and dad start having encounters with them as well. But thankfully, Steven McGraw finally starts to realize the things that are more important in life, God and his family. But that’s only half the battle. To the demonic spirits, this means war! And a war they’ll have! But in the midst of their troubles, God hears them and sends His word of life to change their lives! “So do not fear, for I am with you; I will uphold you with my righteous right hand.” These are just some of the words that defeats Satan’s demons and sends them back whence they came!

Bringing together scholars from Europe, America, and Australia, this volume explores the more fantastic elements of popular religious belief: ghosts, werewolves, spiritualism, animism, and of course, witchcraft. These traditional religious belief and practices are frequently treated as marginal in more synthetic studies of witchcraft and popular religion, yet Protestants and Catholics alike saw ghosts, imps, werewolves, and other supernatural entities as populating their world. Embedded within notarial and trial records are accounts that reveal the integration of folkloric and theological elements in early modern spirituality. Drawing from extensive archival research, the contributors argue for the integration of such beliefs into our understanding of late medieval and early modern Europe.

Unlike some other reproductions of classic texts (1) We have not used OCR(Optical Character Recognition), as this leads to bad quality books with introduced typos. (2) In books where there are images such as portraits, maps, sketches etc We have endeavoured to keep the quality of these images, so they represent accurately the original artefact. Although occasionally there may be certain imperfections with these old texts, we feel they deserve to be made available for future generations to enjoy.

Commencing with the call to arms and resistance against colonial oppression, this book begins on familiar territory for many. The author then explores ingeniously the path of the struggle for freedom and the entrenched power brokers sustaining the colonial structure. Mabhonzo, a prophetic guerilla leader predicts what would happen if the struggle deviates from its true aims, mainly true liberty, true emancipation, true self determination rooted in the progressive ways of the people. Meanwhile the reader is taken years ahead to former colonies, now independent, but still struggling from the yoke of the power brokers and lack of genuine leadership. The author then craftly takes the reader to see the blind triumph to independence, where sadly the prophet does not live to see this day. Independence is followed by unprecedented corruption and repression which leads to an ultimate confrontation of the powerful and their global collaborators against a few good men and women. The reader then ends up in very unfamiliar waters where "a war of morals" erupts with the ultimate victory of the good taking place and a new order finally created. The Risen Bones and the wandering spirits tells us that all it takes for evil to thrive is for good men and women to do nothing. It signifies the ongoing search and the ultimate discovery of peace, justice and human goodwill underlined by struggle against evil.
