This Is IT and Other Essays on Zen and Spiritual Experience, ALAN WATTS

UK Rider 1978 0091347319 / 9780091347314 Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
159 pages. "The most impressive fact in man's spiritual, intellectual, and poetic experience has always been ... the universal prevalence of those astonishing moments of insight which Richard Bucke called 'cosmic consciousness'" (in "This is it" first sentence). This book offers six essays, written between 1956 and 1960 which deal with the relationship between mystical experience and everyday life. The author claims that we need to disentangle ourselves from habits of speech and thought which make it impossible to see that everyday experience is the real thing. The title essay on cosmic consciousness includes the author's account of his own experiences in the inner realm. 'Instinct, Intelligence and Anxiety' is a study of the paradoxes of self - consciousness; Spirituality and Sensuality' presents a lively debate on the false opposition of spirit and matter; and 'The New Alchemy' gives a balanced account of the states of consciousness akin to spiritual experience. This collection also includes the text of the.author's celebrated pamphlet 'Beat Zen, Square Zen and Zen.'

A Woman, Aleramo, Sibilla
77 Aleramo, Sibilla A Woman
U.S.A. University of California Press 1983 0520049497 / 9780520049499 1st Edition Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
219 pages. For a book that sent shock waves through the European literary establishment and, since its original publication in 1906 has gone through seven editions along with highly cclaimed translations into all th principal languages of Europe, "A Woman" (Una Donna) by Sibilla Aleramo (1876-1960) has remained curiously obscure in America. Aleramo's lightly fictionalized memoir presented a kaleidoscopic series of Italian images--the frenetic industrialism of the North, the miserable squalor of the country's backward areas to the South, fin de siè cle Italian politics and literary life--all set in the framework of a drama admiringly characterized by Luigi Pirandellow as "grim and powerful." For some other Italians, "A woman" touched ar aw nerve, and many critics reacted to Aleramo with extreme hostility. However, whether one liked Aleramo's novel or not, the book was an iceberg in the mainstream of Italian literary life, impossible to get around without careful inspection. Sibilla Aleramo is the pseudonym of Rina Faccio, Italian author. She was a feminist best known for her autobiographical depictions of life as a woman in late 19th century Italy.

The Food Chain: A Game of Choice, Allaby, Michael
80 Allaby, Michael The Food Chain: A Game of Choice
U. K. Andre Deutsch 1984 0233976817 / 9780233976815 1st Edition Hard Cover Good 12mo 
176 pages including an introduction with 5 pages and 500 numbered paragraphs.This book is a game, like the adventure games you may have played before, and in it you play the part of a ruler. As you read the 500 numbered paragraphs, you have suggested choices which lead you from paragraph to paragraph, just as you would in an adventure game, but the choices you have to make are concerned with the real world, and with feeding hungry people. You will meet famine, civil war, food riots and have to decide between the different claims of people in your country. You may be tempted to give up, but there are successful solutions, only the search for them is long and hard. When you see pictures on television of starving people, usually their misery is due to a local catastrophe. Perhaps there has been an earthquake, or an unusually long drought, or perhaps they are running away from a war that has destroyed their homes and their farms. We send help to such people. We send medicines, blankets, clothes, and we send food. They can be helped because we can see quite clearly what it is they need. This book is people we see less often. They suffer because they are poor; they are poor in ways we ?nd it dif?cult to understand. Do you receive pocket money each week? How much? Let us suppose you are given $1 - and many young people receive more than that. This means that not counting birthday or Christmas money, or special spending money for holidays, you receive $52 a year. That is about as much as the average person earns in a year in Bhutan, the world’s poorest country. That amount must buy food, clothes, fuel for cooking and heating, and it must pay for the home and its repair.
