A noted Russian sinologue, Iulian Shchutskii tried to find out how the I China was put together and what the terms meant when they were written. Accordingly, he goes back to the original text, studies the structure of its language, and examines its concepts in terms of its own images and ideas rather than through the preconceived constructs with which most Western scholars approach the book.

Wilhelm frequently wrote and lectured on the Book of Changes, supplying guidelines to its ideas and ways of thinking. Collected here are four lectures he gave between 1926 and 1929. The lectures are significant not only for what they reveal about Chinese tradition and culture, but also for their reflections of the scholarly and cultural milieu prevalent in Germany during that time.

In addition to the apocalyptic prospect of global nuclear destruction, there are other dismal scenarios involving resource and environmental issues that are less imminent but still serious in the long term. Past analyses, seeking remedies, have focused on symptoms rather than causes. They represent extensions and expressions of the same philosophies and strategies that created these situations. This book brings a fresh and optimistic perspective to the problem area. It explores modern consciousness research and transpersonal psychology for practices that accelerate the development of consciousness. It covers a wide range from laboratory techniques of experimental psychiatry, transpersonal psychotherapies, and Jungian psychology to the Oriental and Western mystical traditions.

People of the Fresh Water Lake presents evidence obtained from archaeological research about the lifeways of the prehistoric peoples of the town of Westborough, Massachusetts over the past 9000 years. More than this, it is an expression, by the professional archaeologist most familiar with the Westborough evidence, of the way in which New England archaeologists work to reconstruct that region's prehistoric past. Chapters on specific phases of Westborough's prehistory are interspersed with essays on the craft of archaeology, which are designed to engage the interest of the reader and to prepare him/her more fully to understand the evidence. The book is geared to the level of the educated reader who has an interest in the past, but not necessarily specific knowledge of either the methods used, or the results obtained, in the New England region.
