Book excerpt: The second volume of Woodruff's memoirs starts with his arrival in the East End of London in the early 1930s. He finds lodgings with a Cockney family in Stratford, where he shares a single bed (head to toe) with a stonebreaker. He thinks himself lucky to get a job at an iron foundry until he faces the gruelling, back-breaking work. But William is indomitable. To find his old sweetheart, he one day cycles to Berkhamstead. She's not there and he returns in a snowstorm - it takes him eight hours to reach friends in the west of London and then, after three hours sleep, another four to get to work on time. Eventually he joins a night school to 'get some learnin'; his first white collar job starts for the water board in S( Brettenham House! His studies finally take him to the Catholic Workers College (which is now Plater College), Oxford. How the foundry worker became a scholar, how war interrupted his studies - and William's concluding description of returning from war to meet the son he's never seen - is a deeply moving story.

Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: By investigating the major changes in world history during the past five hundred years, Woodruff explains to what extent world forces have been responsible for shaping both the past and the present. This extraordinary book tells of the rise and fall of empires and civilizations; it recounts the growing communality and interdependence of nations; it shows how so many problems of the contemporary world are the legacy of an unprecedented era of western domination - the end of which was hastened by the two world wars. In explaining how the world has come to be what it is, the author examines the implications surrounding the end of the cold war, the unravelling of communism in Eastern Europe, and the growing challenge of the non-western world to western superiority. It is Woodruff's belief that we have reached a crucial transitional stage in world history in which the world will no longer be shaped by the single image of western modernism, but increasingly by the image of all cultures and civilizations. With the shift of geopolitical and geoeconomic power to Asia, and with the growing world-wide influence of religious fundamentalism and revolutionary nationalism, the need for a global perspective has become acute. A Concise History of the Modern World encompasses the learning and the insights gleaned by the author from a life-time career as a world historian.

Book excerpt: Because... is a compulsive search to look within and find answers. We are generally lost behind the apathy of our own laid cobwebs.

With a sensitive approach towards mental well-being, Because articulates positive thinking with creative reads and poetic expressions giving us meaningful takeaways. It captures a release of different moods with sheer optimism. It asserts on prudent lessons of various experiences and helps us to reach logical ends. An engaging read, this book brings an extraordinary feeling of happiness and internal satisfaction.

Summary Book Review Addiction to Religion :

Download or read book Addiction to Religion written by Mahfooz Kanwar Ph.D. and published by Xlibris Corporation. This book was released on 2015-05-22 with total page 534 pages. Available in PDF, EPUB and Kindle. Book excerpt: After the Second World War, in the 1950s and beyond, we embraced revolutionary emancipation of women, among other things, which led to an unprecedented sexual and cultural revolution, especially in the West. We discarded some of the old ways of doing things, and we opened the door to a brand-new and modern civilization in the 1960s, 1970s, and early 1980s. The sexual and cultural revolution led us to secularism, which challenged many draconian mores, including those in Muslim countries such as Pakistan, Malaysia, Turkey, Iran, Tunisia, and Morocco. That was when I published one of my books, Sociology of Religion: Changing Conceptions in the Structure of Islam. However, in relatively recent times, we have faced the backward process of reverting to traditional norms. That reversed cultural change led to fundamentalism, including fundamentalism in religion, which is a precursor to addiction to religion. That has ultimately resulted in national and international terrorism. That born-again trend encouraged me to do research in this field, including addiction to religion. That led me to write this book. I have concluded in this book that both addiction to drugs and addiction to religion are a disease, a delirium, and a psychic syndrome influenced by a mental disorder. During the last two to three decades, there has been a significant rise in religious fundamentalism leading to addiction to religion, which has caused global havoc. Religion has been hijacked, misused, and abused, largely by semiliterate believers in all organized religions. Religious addiction is perhaps worse than drug addiction. Other books by the Author 1. The Sociology of Family: An Interdisciplinary Approach 2. Sociology of Criminal Behaviour 3. Sociology of Religion: Changing Conceptions in the Structure of Islam 4. Murder and Homicide in Pakistan 5. Issues in Canadian Sociology (with Hewa) 6. Issues in Canadian Sociology, 2nd Ed. (with Swenson) 7. Canadian Sociology (with Swenson) 8.
