  • Esoteric Christianityby Annie Besant

    The Floating Press 1905; US$ 5.99 US$ 5.21

    The object of this book is to suggest certain lines of thought as to the deep truths underlying Christianity, truths generally overlooked, and only too often denied. The generous wish to share with all what is precious, to spread broadcast priceless truths, to shut out none from the illumination of true knowledge, has resulted in a zeal without discretion... more...

  • Death - and After?by Annie Besant

    The Floating Press 1906; US$ 4.99 US$ 4.34

    Death consists in a repeated process of unrobing, or unsheathing. The immortal part of man shakes off from itself, one after the other, its outer casings, and - as the snake from its skin, the butterfly from its chrysalis - emerges from one after another, passing into a higher state of consciousness. Now it is the fact that this escape from the body,... more...

  • The Cloud Upon the Sanctuaryby Karl von Eckartshausen; Isabel de Steiger

    The Floating Press 1909; US$ 4.99 US$ 4.34

    The Cloud upon the Sanctuary is a work of Christian mysticism written in 1909 by Karl von Eckartshausen, a Catholic mystic and philosopher.

  • Reincarnationby Th. Pascal; Fred Rothwell

    The Floating Press 1910; US$ 5.99 US$ 5.21

    Under many and diverse names and veils, the doctrine of Rebirths has been taught from the farthest antiquity right up to the present time. There is not a nation that has not preserved clear traces of this doctrine; not a religion that has not taught it, either openly or in secret, or, at all events, retained the germ of the teaching; and if we count... more...

  • A Textbook of Theosophyby C. W. Leadbeater

    The Floating Press 1912; US$ 5.99 US$ 5.21

    We often speak of Theosophy as not in itself a religion, but the truth which lies behind all religions alike. That is so; yet, from another point of view, we may surely say that it is at once a philosophy, a religion and a science. It is a philosophy, because it puts plainly before us an explanation of the scheme of evolution of both the souls and... more...

  • The Crest-Wave of Evolutionby Kenneth Morris

    The Floating Press 1921; US$ 5.99 US$ 5.21

    These lectures will not be concerned with history as a record of wars and political changes; they will have little to tell of battles, murders, and sudden deaths. Instead, we shall try to discover and throw light on the cyclic movements of the Human Spirit. Back of all phenomena, or the outward show of things, there is always a noumenon in the unseen.... more...

  • Islam and Politics in East Africaby August H. Nimtz

    University of Minnesota Press 1980; US$ 67.50

    Focusing on the interplay of religion, society, and politics, August Nimtz examines the role of sufi tariqas (brotherhoods) in Tanzania, where he observed an African Muslim society at first hand. Nimtz opens this book with a historical account of Islam in more...

  • Islam: The Religious and Political Life of a World Communityby MARJORIE KELLY

    ABC-CLIO 1984; US$ 36.95

    Written in straight-forward language by leading Islamic scholars, 14 essays cover the basics of Islamic faith and practice, the foundations of state and society, the early Muslim empires, Islamic universalism in the later Middle Ages, and the later Muslim empires. more...

  • Was Jonestown a CIA Medical Experiment?by Michael Meiers

    The Edwin Mellen Press 1989; US$ 199.95

    A work of investigative journalism that presents the theory that the Central Intelligence Agency employed the Reverend Jim Jones to administer a pharmaceutical field test in mind control and ethnic weaponry to a large test group, namely the membership of the Peoples Temple. Proposes that Dr. Laurence Layton (Former Chief of the U.S. Army's Chemical... more...

  • Islamic Reformby David Dean Commins

    Oxford University Press 1990; US$ 154.99

    Using unpublished manuscripts and correspondence, inheritance documents, and Ottoman-era periodicals, this work examines the social, intellectual, and political life in turn-of-the-century Damascus: the struggle between reformist Muslim scholars and conservative scholars over how to define Islam; the rise of Arabism; the political fortunes of reformers,... more...
