Soul Mind Body Science System is the first book to explore the scientific explanations for why soul healing miracles are genuine. Written with Dr. Rulin Xiu, an expert on string theory and quantum physics who trained at The University of California Berkeley, Dr. Sha shares, for the first time, the scientific theories that explain why all actions on Earth are guided by the reality of the soul.

Soul Mind Body Science System explores soul energy and soul healing from a scientific perspective, providing new insights into the compatibility of science and the transcendent. In Soul Mind Body Science System, the complex and fascinating relationships between matter, information, density, soul, and consciousness are thoroughly examined. Written for armchair and professional scientists alike, this book makes a significant contribution to the ongoing debate about the true nature of reality.

The Herbaceous Layer in the Forests of North America has (1) the most comprehensive listing of herb-layer literature in existence, and (2) Contains contributions from top ecologists, approaching forest ecology from a variety of discipline.
Over the last decade, the field of plant ecology has significantly developed and expanded, especially in research concerning the herb layer and ground vegetation of forests.

The book synthesizes the research of top ecologists and biologists on herbaceous layer structure, composition, and dynamics of a variety of forest ecosystem types in eastern North America.

The 2003 first edition of The Herbaceous Layer in Forests of Eastern North America was praised for containing the most extensive listing of herb-layer literature in existence.

It's_ALL_Greel_to_me_small
the Mediterranean Way with My Family’s Century-Old Recipes

by Debbie Mantenopolous

BenBella Books, 2014
Hardcover: 304 pages

ISBN-10: 193952993X

Debbie Matenopoulos grew up in a traditional Greek household, eating delicious, authentic Greek cooking that her family had passed down for generations. When Debbie started her television career in New York on The View, she began eating a standard American diet. Despite carefully limiting how much she ate, she found herself gaining weight and losing energy. It was only when she returned to her traditional Greek diet that she found herself easily—and healthily—realizing her natural weight and regaining the stamina she had as a teenager.

Debbie shares 120 of her family’s traditional Greek recipes and adds her own touch to make them even healthier and easier to prepare. After tasting Debbie’s dishes, such as her mouth watering version of Spanakopita and her take on Fasolatha, you’ll be amazed that these delicious foods are good for you. Debbie even includes tips on how to adapt her recipes to meet any dietary needs, so all readers can enjoy her hearty meals.
With a foreword by Dr. Michael Ozner, one of the nation’s leading cardiologists, the recipes in It’s All Greek to Me adhere to the healthiest diet on the planet: the traditional Mediterranean Diet. Modern science is catching up to what Greeks have known for millennia: health comes from eating natural, whole-food ingredients that haven’t been processed or pumped full of hormones, antibiotics, or preservatives.

Gender and Nation in Meiji Japan:

Gender_and_Nation _in_Meiji Japan_small
Modernity, Loss and the Doing of History

by Jason G. Karlin

University of Hawai’i Press, 2014
Hard cover, 320 pages
ISBN: 978-0-8248-3826-3

Gender and Nation in Meiji Japan is an historical analysis of the discourses of nostalgia in late nineteenth and early twentieth-century Japan. Through an analysis of the experience of rapid social change in Japan’s modernization, it argues that fads and the desires they express are central to understanding Japanese modernity, conceptions of gender, and discourses of nationalism. The author uncovers the myth of eternal return that lurks below the surface of Japanese history as an expression of the desire to find meaning amid the chaos and alienation of modern times. The Meiji period (1868–1912) was one of rapid change that hastened the process of forgetting: The state’s aggressive program of modernization required the repression of history and memory. However, repression merely produced new forms of desire seeking a return to the past, with the result that competing or alternative conceptions of the nation haunted the history of modern Japan. This book examines the intellectual, social, and cultural factors that contributed to the rapid spread of Western tastes and styles, along with the backlash against Westernization that was expressed as a longing for the past. By focusing on the expressions of these desires in popular culture and media texts, it reveals how the conflation of mother, countryside, everyday life, and history structured representations to naturalize ideologies of gender and nationalism.

Witnessing the Soviet Twilight:


Accounts of Americans in the U.S.S.R. on the Eve of Its Collapse

by Dorothy McClellan

McFarland, 2014
Paperback: 252 pages
ISBN-10: 0786479442

More than 20 years have passed since the fall of the Soviet empire. This book provides an intimate look at how Americans resident in the Soviet Union in its final days described this unprecedented moment in history. North American scholars from the disciplines of philosophy, sociology, psychology, women’s studies, criminal justice, labor relations, religion and education present their insights into the dramatic events that marked the collapse of the Soviet Union and the transition to the Commonwealth of Independent States. As glasnost and perestroika developed, many Russians grew critical of traditional beliefs and confused about their identity and role in society. As Marxism-Leninism slipped away, still others lamented the passing of a system rich in social protection and opportunities for education and professional advancement. In this crisis thoughtful people shared with the contributors to this book assessments of their national history, its successes and failures, its triumphs, its crimes and brutalities. Accounts range from concrete portrayals of individuals to theoretical discussions of ideology, economy, gender equality, capitalism and socialism, producing a multifaceted portrait of a changing nation.

Maine to Greenland:


Exploring the Maritime Far Northeast

by William W. Fitzhugh and Wilfred E. Richard

Smithsonian Books, 2013
Hardcover: 270 pages

ISBN-10: 1588343774

Maine to Greenland is a testament to one of the world’s great – and little acknowledged – geographic regions: the Maritime Far Northeast. The authors’ essays and Wilfred Richard’s photography documenting their research and personal odysseys of more than three decades provide a dramatic explication of the power of the far northeast concept. We learn about the history, environments, and cultures of the region, and the idea of how small-scale societies have adapted to rather than changed their environments, as people further south tended to do. The book has a strong message about the impacts of climate change in the north and the need for appropriate technology and adaptation. It promotes understanding about a part of the world– the northwest Atlantic coastal region– that once was well-known to Europeans and Americans, but which sank into obscurity at the close of the great schooner fisheries and WWII, and which now is re-emerging as a result of climate change, the political emergence of Native people, and the opening of the Arctic Ocean.

ISBN-10: 1478704365

After 40 plus years, former FBI agent Donald G. Wilson reveals in his book “Evidence Withheld”, physical evidence that was recovered from the car of James Earl Ray which was abandoned in Atlanta, Georgia in 1968 and has never been viewed by anyone until the printing of this book, “Evidence Withheld.” Wilson was targeted by the U.S. Department of Justice in 2000 for only one reason: they didn’t want the American public to know the truth, or view all of the evidence surrounding the assassinations of MLK and JFK.

Read how Atlanta FBI agents danced and sang upon learning of Martin Luther King’s assassination. Read Wilson’s response to the contrived U.S. Department of Justice report of 2000 that attempted to destroy both his credibility and that of the evidence. View for the very first time new physical evidence that documents a conspiracy implicating the FBI and CIA and an FBI informant with the initials of J. J. Who sold out Martin Luther King Jr..? “Evidence Withheld” provides not only words but actual physical evidence in the form of handwritten notes that one can view.
