The Truth Agenda explores some of the most famous unexplained mysteries and global cover-ups of recent history. What is the truth about UFOs, pyramids, religious apparitions, psychic phenomena, visions of the future and ancient prophecies, and what is their connection to famous conspiracy theories concerning the Moon landings, 9/11, the New World Order, and claims that the planet is secretly run by a powerful ruling elite? Leading mysteries researcher Andy Thomas pulls the many threads together in an accessible, stimulating and credible overview which suggests that our world may be very different from the picture presented by the establishment. The Truth Agenda shows how we can avoid control manipulations and help to create a more positive future. Why do so many people believe in conspiracy theories, and what is the evidence to support them? What is the basis for the wide belief that we are now in a ‘New Era’ of massive change and consciousness shift? Why is there such huge but officially undeclared interest in paranormal phenomena from authorities and religions? How does all this tie together and explain the agendas of control and surveillance in the West, and what can we do?

The reception of Michel Foucault's work in the social sciences and humanities has been phenomenal. Foucault's concepts and methodology have encouraged new approaches to old problems and opened up new lines of enquiry. This book assesses the contribution of Foucault's work to research and thinking in the area of health and medicine, and shows how key researchers in the sociology of health and illness are currently engaging with his ideas. Foucault, Health and Medicine explores such important issues as: Foucault's concept of 'discourse', the critique of the 'medicalization' thesis, the analysis of the body and the self, Foucault's concept of 'bio-power' in the analysis of health education, the implications of Foucault's ideas for feminist research on embodiment and gendered subjectivities, the application of Foucault's notion of governmentality to the analysis of health policy, health promotion, and the consumption of health. Foucault, Health and Medicine offers a `state of the art' overview of Foucaldian scholarship in the area of health and medicine. It will provide a key reference for both students and researchers working in the areas of medical sociology, health policy, health promotion and feminist studies.

Explorations in Truth the Human Condition and Wholeness

It is interesting tonote thatholiness andwholeness derive from the samerootword: health. Therefore, health implies holiness andwholeness. Carl Jung recognized thatbyits very nature, theindividual psyche or soulseeks wholeness.

The work Explorations in Truth, the Human Condition and Wholeness is an unconventional gaze into the landscape of our complex inner life, exploring inner experiences and testifying to the truth of life’s sordid beauty and sacred dread. What does it mean to live an authentic life without illusion and accept the complexities of life and death? This book has woven together personnel experiences, existential philosophy, quantum physics, Jungian psychology, and contemplative spirituality into a tapestry of reflections which covers the entire spectrum of the human condition and our collective quest for truth and wholeness. Included is a brief look into history in a delineation of fate, destiny, and our longings for joy and wholeness in the context of uncertainty and finitude. The author uses modern day bards, primarily Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, Van Morrison, and Bruce Cockburn, as epigraphs to enhance his philosophy of life that is both distinctive and drastic in nature. Also included are extensive commentaries on “The Odyssey” and the “Book of Job”, peering into suffering and evil in a fashion that combines the great Western Greek and Judeo-Christian traditions. Finally, the power of the feminine is placed firmly back into the psyche of the West which had been neglected for too long. In short, join me in a great adventurous approach to healing and wholeness amidst the afflictions and anguish of our human condition. Will Barno [email protected] 612-390-0514

A monumental biography of one of the most important black women of the nineteenth century. Sojourner Truth first gained prominence at an 1851 Akron, Ohio, women's rights conference, saying, "Dat man over dar say dat woman needs to be helped into carriages, and lifted over ditches. . . . Nobody eber helps me into carriages, or ober mud-puddles . . . and ar'n't I a woman?" Sojourner Truth: ex-slave and fiery abolitionist, figure of imposing physique, riveting preacher and spellbinding singer who dazzled listeners with her wit and originality. Straight-talking and unsentimental, Truth became a national symbol for strong black women--indeed, for all strong women. Like Harriet Tubman and Frederick Douglass, she is regarded as a radical of immense and enduring influence; yet, unlike them, what is remembered of her consists more of myth than of personality. Now, in a masterful blend of scholarship and sympathetic understanding, eminent black historian Nell Irvin Painter goes beyond the myths, words, and photographs to uncover the life of a complex woman who was born into slavery and died a legend. Inspired by religion, Truth transformed herself from a domestic servant named Isabella into an itinerant pentecostal preacher; her words of empowerment have inspired black women and poor people the world over to this day. As an abolitionist and a feminist, Truth defied the notion that slaves were male and women were white, expounding a fact that still bears repeating: among blacks there are women; among women, there are blacks. No one who heard her speak ever forgot Sojourner Truth, the power and pathos of her voice, and the intelligence of her message. No one who reads Painter's groundbreaking biography will forget this landmark figure and the story of her courageous life.
