Based on the research that brought international recognition to Raine Eisler's groundbreaking work The Chalice and the Blade but addressing the world as it is today, The Power of Partnership offers inspiration and guidance for moving to the better lives we yearn for. Eisler offers us a new lens, a new paradigm, for seeing the world and living in it. The Partnership Model, which emphasizes mutual respect and a fundamental awareness of the sacredness of all life, creates a solid foundation for families, businesses, communities, and the world. In contrast, the suffocating paradigm that has guided much of recorded history — what Eisler calls the Domination Model — has led individuals and groups, acting out of fear, to oppress women, wage war, terrorize, and subjugate others. Using these simple yet far-reaching models, Eisler shows how political and personal relationships based on domination inevitably result in misery and violence, while those founded on partnership foster respect, love, and an explosion of creativity.

The Future of Democracy in America and the World: A Few Possibilities makes the vast fields of modern American political philosophy and politics more accessible to both those engaged and those not engaged in these professions. Based in part on an exhaustive reading of American political philosophy and writers who have influenced American political philosophy, James Schacht explores what democracy has been in the past, what it is now, and what it can be in the future. Going as far back as the Englishman John Locke, whose writings strongly influenced Thomas Jefferson in his writing of the Declaration of Independence, he provides a comprehensive view of American political philosophy and its origins up to today, describes the institution of democracy, describes the culture associated with this institution, makes some predictions, and describes a framework for pursuing our best hope for the future.

DO NOT BUY THIS BOOK IF YOU OWN THE "Trilogy" or ATS: Book 2, its primary source. (This, the fifth book in the Awakening The Soul series, is the story of the discovery of the suppression of almost all the traits of our spiritual nature by those who should have been protecting and enhancing them. By the time you get to the end of this book, you will understand what Western Religions have done to the world. This realization grew to the point where it became obvious this most vital information needed a wider, more immediate audience for greater exposure than just to those actively seeking spiritual awakening. These historically-documented truths, many presented here for the first time, are something every contemporary Christian, Jew and Muslim should know.)

Have we ever "really" believed in gender? Is there any evidence that we have resisted, rejected, and denied the division of human beings into 'male' and 'female'? Both our charter narratives and popular media murmur a persistent -no-. The theories of Luce Irigaray, Mikhail Bakhtin, and Roland Barthes, when applied to works as varied as Bible stories, parables, nursery rhymes, Greek myths and drama, Shakespeare's plays, and contemporary film reveal a new character - the transcengenderist mucosa. The transcengenderist mucosa - an original metaphor derived from our own deep physical structures: our permeable cellular membranes - deconstructs the equilibrium of binary gender transcends 'male' and 'female' by being, simultaneously, both and neither. Through the agency of the transcengenderist mucosa, who operates in the liminal space between male and female, we recognize that 'gender' does not exist in reality, and that the violence and destruction inherent in the binary definition of gender can be transcended."
