Waking Up: A Guide to Spirituality Without
For the millions of Americans who want spirituality without religion, Sam Harris’s latest New York Times bestseller is a guide to meditation as a rational practice informed by neuroscience and psychology.From Sam Harris, neuroscientist and author of numerous New York Times bestselling books, Waking Up is for the twenty percent of Americans who follow no religion but who suspect that important truths can be found in the experiences of such figures as Jesus, the Buddha, Lao Tzu, Rumi, and the other saints and sages of history. Throughout this book, Harris argues that there is more to understanding reality than science and secular culture generally allow, and that how we pay attention to the present moment largely determines the quality of our lives. Waking Up is part memoir and part exploration of the scientific underpinnings of spirituality. No other book marries contemplative wisdom and modern science in this way, and no author other than Sam Harris—a scientist, philosopher, and famous skeptic—could write it.

10% Happier: How I Tamed the Voice in My Head, Reduced Stress Without Losing My Edge, and Found Self-Help That Actually Works--A True
#1 New York Times BestsellerREVISED WITH NEW MATERIAL Winner of the 2014 Living Now Book Award for Inspirational Memoir"An enormously smart, clear-eyed, brave-hearted, and quite personal look at the benefits of meditation."—Elizabeth GilbertNightline anchor Dan Harrisembarks on an unexpected, hilarious, and deeply skeptical odyssey through the strange worlds of spirituality and self-help, and discovers a way to get happier that is truly achievable.After having a nationally televised panic attack, Dan Harris knew he had to make some changes. A lifelong nonbeliever, he found himself on a bizarre adventure involving a disgraced pastor, a mysterious self-help guru, and a gaggle of brain scientists. Eventually, Harris realized that the source of his problems was the very thing he always thought was his greatest asset: the incessant, insatiable voice in his head, which had propelled him through the ranks of a hypercompetitive business, but had also led him to make the profoundly stupid decisions that provoked his on-air freak-out.Finally, Harris stumbled upon an effective way to rein in that voice, something he always assumed to be either impossible or useless: meditation, a tool that research suggests can do everything from lower your blood pressure to essentially rewire your brai...

The Essential Guide to Critical Development Studies (Routledge Critical Development
In recent years, much mainstream development discourse has sought to co-opt and neutralize key concepts relating to empowerment, participation, gender, sustainability and inclusivity in order to serve a market-driven, neoliberal agenda. Critical development studies now play a crucial role in combatting this by analyzing the systemic changes needed to transform the current world to one where economic and social justice and environmental integrity prevail.The Essential Guide to Critical Development Studies takes as its starting point the multiple crises – economic, political, social and environmental – of the dominant current global capitalist system. The chapters collectively document and analyze these crises and the need to find alternatives to the system(s) that generate them. To do so, analyses of class, gender and empire are placed at the centre of discussion, in contrast to markets, liberalization and convergence, which characterize mainstream development discourse. Each contributor supplements their overview with a guide to the critical development studies literature on the topic, thereby providing scholars and students not only with a precis of the key issues, but also a signpost to further readings. This is an important resource for academics, researchers, policymakers...

The Moral Landscape: How Science Can Determine Human
Sam Harris's first book, The End of Faith, ignited a worldwide debate about the validity of religion. In the aftermath, Harris discovered that most people-from religious fundamentalists to nonbelieving scientists-agree on one point: science has nothing to say on the subject of human values. Indeed, our failure to address questions of meaning and morality through science has now become the most common justification for religious faith. It is also the primary reason why so many secularists and religious moderates feel obligated to "respect" the hardened superstitions of their more devout neighbors. In this explosive new book, Sam Harris tears down the wall between scientific facts and human values, arguing that most people are simply mistaken about the relationship between morality and the rest of human knowledge. Harris urges us to think about morality in terms of human and animal well-being, viewing the experiences of conscious creatures as peaks and valleys on a "moral landscape". Because there are definite facts to be known about where we fall on this landscape, Harris foresees a time when science will no longer limit itself to merely describing what people do in the name of "morality"; in principle, science should be able to tell us what we ought to do to live the best lives...

The Tallest Tower: Eiffel and the Belle
The Paris Universal Exposition of 1889 marked both the centennial of the French Revolution and France's recovery from the humiliating defeat of the Franco-Prussian War. Gustave Eiffel's thousand-foot tower celebrated both those events. But the tower was a stunning accomplishment in its own right, the tallest structure made by man. It was as provocative as it was ambitious. Even before its girders reached toward the sky, Charles Gounod, Alexandre Dumas fils, Guy de Maupassant, and dozens of other artists and intellectuals protested in outrage over this metal monster which would spoil Paris's classic skyline. But despite public apprehension and unprecedented technological challenges, the tower was ready in time to star at the fair, competing successfully for attention with Thomas Edison's first phonograph and Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show. This is also the story of a master builder of the industrializing nineteenth century. Wielding iron in new ways, Eiffel scattered his creations around the globe—train stations and vaulting bridges in Europe, South America, and Indochina, the interior bracing of the Statue of Liberty in the United States. Over the years the tower has been scorned, exalted, analyzed by philosophers for hidden meaning, and used by eccentrics for b...

About France: (Or, Why the French Are So
In this collection of articles, the veteran international journalist Joseph Harriss provides profiles and analysis of French icons and institutions ranging from the Académie Française and the Foreign Legion, to the Concorde supersonic airliner and the Crazy Horse Saloon. With a lively mix of wit and insight, he also explores national quirks such as the French passion for astrology, the wholesale adoption of English words, and the nation's quixotic fixation on the past. The result is an idiosyncratic, often provocative take by a perceptive writer with an eye for ironic detail.
