The Dawn of the New Cycle

At the end of the nineteenth century, a group of Americans who embraced the Theosophical religious movement founded a new community at Point Loma, an isolated promontory on the Pacific Ocean. Anticipating the "dawn of a new cycle" based upon their interpretation of past ages, these idealists shared a dedication to truth and morality and sought to translate their spiritual beliefs into a new way of living. This book seeks to reconstruct life at the utopian community at Point Loma from 1898 to 1929, the years it was under the direction of its founder, Katherine Tingley. In considering a group that identified with Victorian American culture and its anxieties while adhering to an occult worldview that most of their contemporaries found strange, if not dangerous, the book explains why these middle-class Americans found Theosophy so persuasive and why they left family and friends behind to take up residence at this California settlement. Point Loma was in many ways a microcosm in which certain issues and ideas of the Progressive era were played out; yet W. Michael Ashcraft demonstrates that the members of this community were Victorian rather than Progressive in their outlook and practices. By analyzing aspects of community life--childrearing and education, gender roles, ideas about American patriotism and nationalism--Ashcraft shows that on such issues the Point Loma residents leaned more toward nineteenth-century attitudes than toward the ideas that were already beginning to shape modern middle-class thinking. Based not only on Theosophical Society archives but also on interviews with surviving members of the community and their relatives, The Dawn of the New Cycle applies recent scholarship in the social sciences to offer a fresh perspective on the Point Loma experiment and to enhance our understanding of New Religious Movements and communalism. The Author: W. Michael Ashcraft is associate professor of religion at Truman State University in Kirksville, Missouri.

Anthony Mann (1906-1967) is renowned for his outstanding 1950s westerns starring James Stewart (Winchester '73, The Naked Spur, The Man from Laramie). But there is more to Mann's cinematic universe than those tough Wild West action dramas featuring conflicted and secretive heroes. This brilliant Hollywood craftsman also directed fourteen electrifying crime thrillers between 1942 and 1951, among them such towering achievements in film noir as T-Men, Raw Deal, and Side Street. Mann was as much at home filming dark urban alleys in black-and-white as he was the prairies and mountains in Technicolor, and his protagonists were no less conflicted and secretive than his 1950s cowboys. In these Mann crime thrillers we find powerful stories of sexual obsession (The Great Flamarion), the transforming images of women in wartime and postwar America (Strangers in the Night, Strange Impersonation), exploitation of Mexican immigrants (Border Incident), studies of the criminal mind (He Walked by Night), and Civil War bigotry (The Tall Target). Mann's forceful camera captured such memorable and diverse stars as Erich von Stroheim, Farley Granger, Dennis O'Keefe, Claire Trevor, Richard Basehart, Ricardo Montalbán, Ruby Dee, and Raymond Burr. The Crime Films of Anthony Mann features analysis of rare documents, screenplays, story treatments, and studio memoranda and reveals detailed behind-the-scenes information on preproduction and production on the Mann thrillers. Author Max Alvarez uses rare and newly available sources to explore the creation of these noir masterworks. Along the way, the book exposes secrets and solves mysteries surrounding the mercurial director and his remarkable career, which also included Broadway and early live television.

The phrase walk the path is a metaphor for the life journey of those who aim toward spiritual illumination. We all have our own unique journey in life, and no one can walk that path for us or prescribe the way we should go. Nevertheless, we sometimes encounter a fellow traveler along the way with whom insights and experiences can be shared. There is much to discuss, because today we can no longer rely on the dogmas and orthodoxies of human history. Spiritual illumination today demands a path of knowledge without preconception and fixed worldviews. This book is written for those who have come to the point of deciding that the best thing they can do for the good of the earth and for their own fulfillment is to approach life as a quest for self-knowledge and true inner freedom. For them, this book will be an invaluable roadmap and guide for the many important milestones and crossroads we encounter in life. Michael Burton offers seven chapters that echo the seven stages of the alchemical process of illumination. It is written in such a way that it not only imparts information but also engages the reader s life of feeling and will. No one can read this book and not be challenged to walk the path toward inner transformation. "

America is poised to lead the 21st Century, as it led the 20th. That will happen because the country is at a tipping point in the battle for its own renewal, a renewal that will allow America to be exceptional again. Our economy is on the move, fueled by revolutions in energy, immigration, innovation, big data and advanced manufacturing. America's energy independence has set off shockwaves. Just as important are the social transformations that are making the country ever more racially and culturally diverse, younger, a home to immigrants, and the metropolitan centers that foster a rising economic and cultural dynamism. While most other countries struggle profoundly with immigration and religious and racial differences, America's on a path to multicultural identity. Those revolutions in the economy, society and culture and are also producing a new American majority that embraces new values and new politics. Republicans are waging a counter-revolution and that is why America looks gridlocked and why the country is turning to Democrats to take on the country's growing challenges. The economic and social transformations leave people struggling to earn enough and reach the middle class. Families are under stress. Government is corrupted by big money. The American public is demanding the country address the dark side of our progress - and reforms are starting to happen. That is why Democrats will get to lead an era of reform and renewal comparable to the progressive era that mitigated the excesses of the Industrial Revolution. In this incisive book, expert strategist Greenberg draws on years of research and polling to illuminate how America is far from being gridlocked and he articulates a powerful vision of how American politics and America can be renewed.

The author’s previous book, Transition to 21st Century Healthcare: A Guide for Leaders and Quality Professionals, provides a high-level view of American healthcare as transitioning through a period of industrialization, breaking down the fading structures of 20th century healthcare, and paving the way for 21st century healthcare. Mapping the Path to 21st Century Healthcare: The Ten Transitions Workbook offers a review of the fundamentals of the transitional structure presented in the first book, but shifts its focus from concepts to practical application, beginning with an industrialization evaluation that serves as preparation for the transitions. This workbook provides a detailed guide to the development and use of the ten transitions that are critically important in assessing your organization's progress in moving towards the 21st century healthcare model. Divided into four sections, the book progresses from establishing a basis for the ten transitions to providing a deeper analysis of each transition. Section I introduces the concepts that underlie the structure and methodology of the book. Section II offers a historical overview of American healthcare that highlights the fundamental distinctions between 20th century and 21st century healthcare. Section III focuses on the vital role that industrialization plays in revealing the transitions from 20th century and 21st century healthcare. Section IV presents the structure of each transition. It describes the groups of transitions as well as the categories and characteristics that form the transitions. Section V offers an in-depth look at each of the 10 transitions and explains how they provide an understanding of the movement of healthcare from the 20th century to the 21st century. The book concludes with an explanation of the value of the generative or guiding and motivating metaphors in the transitions formed through the contrast between the 20th century and 21st century categories.

In this major re-write of The Rise and Decline of the Asian Century, a critique of Asia's emerging economies, Christopher Lingle is joined by Philippine Professor of Management Reuben Mondejar. Lingle and Mondejar contend that the culprit behind economic instability in East and Southeast Asia is not global capital flows, rather domestic "institutional infrastructure" incompatible with the desires of East Asian states to be players in the global marketplace. They believe that a new crisis of East and Southeast Asian economies may be in the offing, caused by the accumulation of public-sector debt. This debt has been incurred to deal with the restructuring of banks and corporations weakened by Japan's lingering economic malaise, China's economic reforms and the 1997 crash of smaller East Asian and Southeast Asian Economies. Lingle, who formerly taught political economy at Singapore National University and economic at Case Western Reserve University, is a corporate consultant with eConoLytics.com and professor of economics at Universidad Francisco Marroquin (Guatamela). Mondejar is associate professor of management at City University of Hong Kong.

The first volume in a multi-volume collection presenting the Dalai Lama’s comprehensive explanation of the Buddhist path. His Holiness the Dalai Lama has been publicly teaching Buddhism for decades. This series collects his presentations of every step of the path to enlightenment, compiled and coauthored by one of his chief Western disciples, the American nun Thubten Chodron. The Buddha wanted his students to investigate, to see for themselves whether what he said were true. As a student of the Buddha, the Dalai Lama promotes the same spirit of investigation, and as the rich tradition of the Buddha makes its way into new lands and cultures, His Holiness has recognized that new approaches are needed to allow seekers in the West to experience the relevance of the liberating message in their own lives. Such an approach cannot assume listeners are free from doubt and already have faith in Buddhism’s basic tenets. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion series, therefore, starts from the universal human wish for happiness and presents the dynamic nature of the mind. This first volume also provides a wealth of reflections on Buddhist history and fundamentals, contemporary issues, and the Dalai Lama’s own personal experiences. It stands alone as an introduction to Buddhism, but it also provides a foundation for the systematic illumination of the path in the volumes to come. The Library of Wisdom and Compassion collects the Dalai Lama’s decades of presentations of every step of the path to enlightenment. It has been compiled and coauthored by one of his chief Western disciples, the American nun Thubten Chodron.
