A major, eclectic work of extraordinary scope and unprecedented vision, The Three Worlds is much more than a study of the contemporary Third World. It examines the constituents of development—cultural as well as political and economic—throughout the world from prehistory to the present. Peter Worsley first considers existing theories of development, synthesizing the Marxist approach with that of social anthropologists and identifying culture—in the sense of a shared set of values—as the key element missing in more traditional approaches to the sociology of development. Worsley then examines successive forms of rural organization, develops a new definition of the urban poor, considers the relation of ethnicity and nationalism to social class and to each other, and, finally, discusses the nature of the three worlds implied in the term Third World.
A dozen years had passed since Mark Fraser and his family had fled to Ganymede, hoping to find the peace and freedom which had eluded them on Earth. Now violence and terror had pursued them to their new-found home: Captain Swayne and his battleship Vega had made landfall on Ganymede and were using its resources to build missiles with which to hold Planet Earth to ransom. For the second time, Mark Fraser was a marked man, running for his life. His only chance of escape was to a third planet: Jupiter. But as Fraser knew only too well, Jupiter itself was the scene of conflict and carnage. And so far no human being had ever breathed its atmosphere and lived to tell the tale!

As the millennium draws near, only a handful of books on Bible prophecy will approach the clarity and scope of this one. Three Worlds in Conflict satisfies the growing curiosity of both Christians and non-Christians about God's vision for the future by simply yet fully explaining the facts and philosophy of scriptural prophecy. Unlike many titles, this book presents the whole range of Bible prophecy in chronological form, not just bits and pieces. And the style is contemporary and approachable, unfolding the whys, whats, and whens of God's plan for His world with more twists and turns than a bestselling novel.

The world in which early Christianity developed consisted of a complex of distinct communities and cultural 'layers', which interacted with one another, sometimes co-operatively, and sometimes in confrontation. The Three Worlds of Paul of Tarsus explores this world through the life of the apostle Paul, examining the three fundamental cultural 'layers': * the native cultures * the common Hellenistic culture which had been spread in the east as a result of the conquests of Alexander * the culture of the political overlord, Rome. It shows how Paul, as a Jew, a Greek-speaker and a Roman citizen, participates in all of these 'layers'. The authors give an account of the places Paul visited, showing their historical, cultural and political differences and discuss the varied categories, such as religion, philosophy and language, which constituted identity.
Theosophy is an esoteric course of study that resides at the crossroads of philosophy, religion, and science. This expository work, by renowned spiritual adept Charles W. Leadbeater and first published in 1912, is a succinct, practical description of the movement, which is, at its base, a study of Truth. Leadbeater, having been thoroughly educated within a number of schools of religious thought, is a uniquely qualified guide who leads the reader through the challenging field of Theosophy, with but one goal in mind: To serve humanity by showing all students the way to be one with the divine energy of God. English clergyman turned spiritualist CHARLES WEBSTER LEADBEATER (1854-1934) was ordained as an Anglican priest, but later joined the prominent Theosophical Society and traveled to India to study alternative spiritual and occult practices, eventually settling into his life as a clairvoyant and author. His other works include Man Visible and Invisible and The Science of the Sacrament.
Where the Three Worlds MeetThe seal's head bobbed quietly in the still water. It looked around at the brightly lit world around him. He had just surfaced for air after foraging for his food in the undersea world beneath him. He was a large Atlantic seal known as a gray seal. At eight feet in length and over eight pounds he was surprisingly fast and agile.Wet, grey whiskers dripping from the salty sea protruded from his massive cow-like head. His home, St. Margaret's Bay, is a quaint coastal bay with lots of islands, beaches, wildlife, and a history closely tied to the sea.Today the bay is filled with fisherman, sight seers in their motor and sail boats, and sea kayaks, bobbing quietly amidst the green islands.Not far away from the seal, on a grassy shore, a shiny yellow kayak sat in the shade of a crab apple tree. It's yellow colour obscured by dust and fallen leaves. It hadn't moved since the day it was purchased a decade ago. Near its bow, if one looked carefully enough, the picture of a mermaid was painted. She had once adorned the bows of pirate ships, dangling proudly above the water. Today she was only barely noticeable.
