In this book the author of On Having No Head investigates the most poignant problem our life poses - what lies at the end of it. He asks us to check four things. First, that to discover whether we are perishable, we must first discover what we are. Second, that outsiders are in no position to tell us this: they can only tell us what we look like at a distance. Third, that what we are is obvious as soon as we dare to look. And fourth, that we turn out to be in all respects the opposite of what we had been told. This revolutionary conclusion is arrived at by doing the nine "tests for Immortality" that form the backbone of the book. Then, our identity and immortality having been firmly established, we apply this knowledge to the fact of ageing and of dying itself, thus realizing their infinite potential for joy. Finally, the book explores in detail the true resurrection life - life lived in a Heaven which is none other than this earthly scene perceived as it is. 'The "open secret" is no longer secret. Douglas Harding's Little Book of Life nd Death makes the insights of the sages accessible to all. Courageous, personal and inspiring, this book asks the most difficult questions about life and death, and to our - and apparently even the author's - amazemnt, answers them. Like Harding's classic book On Having No Head, this work is written in a down-home, heartfelt syle. Read this book. Do the "experiments" which are Harding's unique and powerful contribution to what might be called the technology of enlightenment. Get ready to die, and to live anew.' Rober W. Fuller. Former president, Oberlin College. 'The literature on dying will never be the same again.' Ram Dass

A lost classic found, a guidebook for life's biggest adventure--death! Gustav Theodor Fechner was a 19th-century physicist, psychologist, metaphysicist, and musician, who applied his considerable intellect to examining the question of life after death. Does it exist? If so, what form might it take? First written and published in a time when traditional understanding of God and nature were undergoing a huge transformation, Fechner's reasonable, accessible, and groundbreaking book became a manual for living well and dying as part of life. Fechner explains that death is another form of birth. That just as you cannot remember the time in the womb and the painful birthing process, so too will you not remember death when you have gone through another birthing or awakening into the spirit world. In this third stage of life, the quality of life is determined by one's actions in the second stage. Right actions provide spirits with a way to better influence the living. False actions on this plane provide nothing and can be debilitating in the world to come. The Little Book of Life After Death was first published in this country with an introduction by William James, arguably the most insightful philosopher of the late 19th century, as well as a forefather of modern psychology.

Contemporary social theories are one of the complex topics of sociology which is difficult to understand for new students, beginners and those who are interested in sociology. During college, I noticed that academic sources which portrayed contemporary social theories in an uncomplicated, formative and easy way were difficult to find. It was an incentive to write this book. In this book, I try to present contemporary social theories along with important theorists of the field of sociology, in manageable, intuitive and intelligible language what most students and sociologists are looking for. In spite of the complexity of the concepts and difficult words derived from the translation from other languages (French, German), I have tried to familiarize you with a simple and easy text in such a way that by reading it, in addition to creating interest in you, you feel that you are in conversation or discussion with someone else.
