Three luminary teachers unfold a compelling series of dialogues on inner freedom—what it is and how to cultivate it in ourselves and others. "We are, nearly all of us," writes Matthieu Ricard, "the playthings of our whims, conditioning, impulses, inner conflicts, wandering thoughts, and afflictive emotions. This servitude is at the root of much that torments us. How do we free ourselves from the prison of these mental mechanisms, in the face of which we often feel helpless, even resigned?" With their acclaimed book In Search of Wisdom, these three gifted friends—a monk, a philosopher, and a psychiatrist—shed light on our universal quest for meaning, purpose, and understanding. Now, in this new in-depth offering, they invite us to tend to the garden of our true nature, freedom. Turn by turn, each shares his own unique perspective on the various obstacles to inner freedom, the “ecology” of freedom, the ways to cultivate it, and the harvest that comes out of it. What emerges is a panoramic vision and roadmap for us to overcome the barriers that hinder our liberation. "It is our hope," they write, "that this book will provide clarification of the means for freeing ourselves from the causes of suffering." Filled with unexpected insights and specific strategies, Freedom for All of Us presents an inspiring guide for breaking free of the unconscious walls that confine us.

Beloved author of, among many other books, the bestsellers How to Argue and Win Every Time and The Making of a Country Lawyer, Gerry Spence distills a lifetime of wisdom and observation about how we live, and how we ought to live in Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom. Here, in seven chapters, he delivers messages that inspire us first to recognize our servitude-to money, possessions, corporations, the status quo, and our own fears-and then shows us how to begin the self-defining process toward liberation. Seven Simple Steps to Personal Freedom is a powerfully affirming, large-hearted, and life-changing book that asks us all to take the greatest risk for the greatest reward-our own freedom.

As the Supreme Court is deciding whether to recognize same sex marriage in our country, my book echoes the question posed by Justice Anthony Kennedy; "In thinking about the impact of this decision on children, they want their parents to have fully recognized and legal status. The voice of these children is considerable in this case, don't you think?" Yes, Justice Kennedy, I do. It is from the voices of our children that a wise and just decision should flow. Equal is equal. Right is right. Love is love. Period. End of story. Beginning of a new story; the day of Freedom For Us All.

"How easily we forget God is in control. How arrogant of us to think we are running anything!" ?Marilyn Meberg Many of us spend our time placing invisible chains on ourselves and those closest to us. Often without realizing what we are doing, we make our world smaller and we put God in a box. The more we insist on owning and controlling, the less room we leave for God to work in our hearts. In Amazing Freedom, renowned Women of Faith authors share insight into the freedoms we can experience if we will just let go. In the first section of the book, each devotional describes something we can find "Freedom from . . ." In the second section, you'll move on to what we're given the "Freedom To . . ." do. And finally, the devotionals explain why we have that freedom at all, in "Freedom For . . . ." Amazing Freedom is filled with stories that will encourage and rejuvenate your spirit. Embark on a new journey unencumbered by the world and experience the peace that will follow. Be encouraged. Be uplifted. Be free.

The ongoing struggle for civil rights and social justice lies at the heart of America's evolving identity. The pursuit of equal rights is often met with social and political trepidation, forcing citizens and leaders to grapple with controversial issues of race, class, and gender. Renowned scholar Harvard Sitkoff has devoted his life to the study of the civil rights movement, becoming a key figure in global human rights discussions and an authority on American liberalism. Toward Freedom Land assembles Sitkoff 's writings on twentieth-century race relations, representing some of the finest race-related historical research on record. Spanning thirty-five years of Sitkoff 's distingushed career, the collection features an in-depth examination of the Great Depression and its effects on African Americans, the intriguing story of the labor movement and its relationship to African American workers, and a discussion of the effects of World War II on the civil rights movement. His precise analysis illuminates multifaceted racial issues including the New Deal's impact on race relations, the Detroit Riot of 1943, and connections between African Americans, Jews, and the Holocaust.

Thomas Anderson has just graduated from CSU Stentoria, with his degree in Political Science. Its an election year, and as a young progressive in California who has been raised by equally progressive parents, he is very much concerned with the political issues currently being discussed in the mass media. A chance encounter with a fellow graduate named Kelly Kelso, however, shakes up his sett led view of the world. He is challenged to examine the rising number of alternatives to the two-party system presented by third party movements such as the Libertarian Party and the Green Party, and is forced to acknowledge that there is far more to politics than simply Democrat versus Republican, and liberal versus conservative. Thomas delves energetically into not only the growing Libertarian movement, but the free market perspective of the Austrian School of economics, as well as the rigid yet compelling view of Ayn Rands philosophy of Objectivism. His explorations grow wider, now encompassing the Tea Party movement and the Christi an Right; tax resisters and gun rights advocates; survivalists and militia members; anarchists, communists, and Democratic Socialists; as well as the Occupy Wall Street movement. He debates the radical environmental views of animal welfare and animal rights advocates, and challenges opponents of corporate globalism as well as deniers of global warming, as he struggles to reformulate and articulate his own developing beliefs, while coping with a sea of conflicting ideas and opposition. But this abstract political theory is brought into sharp encounter with concrete political reality, when Thomas hears a news report of an armed conflict with authorities taking place just outside of town, involving someone with whom he has become emotionally involved
