In our current climate of war and suspicion, Iran is depicted as the "next" rogue nation that America and the world must "deal with." But the rhetoric about nuclear weapons and jihad obscures the real Iran: an ancient nation and culture, both sophisticated and isolated, which still exists clandestinely in major cities as well as the country's remote mountains and deserts. Jason Elliot has spent the last four years traveling in Iran, and in this remarkable book he reveals the many sides of the culture, art, architecture, and people that Westerners cannot see or conveniently ignore. Part close reading of symbols and images, part history, and part intimate interviews with Iranians of many different kinds—from wealthy aristocrats at forbidden parties to tribal horsemen in the most remote mountain villages, who have never seen a Westerner—Mirrors of the Unseen is a beautiful and thought-provoking book by one of the world's most acclaimed adventurers and authors.

Sage thought she could run…but the price is too high. After what I did, I had no choice but to run. And there’s no warm welcome waiting for me back home. But what kind of a life is this? My ties to the Queens severed, my powers diminished…not to mention the constant pain. I want to be powerful again. I crave it. Some days I wonder how far I’d go to regain my former strength. Sage Brighton left the world she knew behind six months ago. After betraying the Lady and the witches who serve her, she can’t return to that life. But now fear seems to be the only force driving her out of bed in the morning. Fear that she’ll never be the witch she was again. Fear that this pain – which she deserves so completely – will always haunt her. Fear that the man who chose her above his own safety made the wrong choice. It turns out she’s been dreading all the wrong things. The Unseen Mirror is the final installment in the Foulweather Twins fantasy trilogy. Start the adventure with Queen Witch.

A new version of the complete spiritual discourses of the Sufi Master, Jalal al-Din Rumi, a great spiritual teacher to be sure, a great poet certainly, a guide to all on the spiritual path and a friend to those unsure of the way. Jalal al-Din Rumi followed the path of Islamic mysticism, a great spiritual teacher to be sure, a great poet certainly, a guide to all on the spiritual path and a friend to those unsure of the way. To those who are sure of the path Rumi says with complete confidence, 'You should realize therefore that whoever has committed himself wholly to God will be safe from all harm, and will remain safe. In His presence, no petition of any man is ever in vain.' And then he adds, 'His bounty and mercy are infinite. Whoever relies on Him will never go astray, his trust will not be in vain.' To those unsure of the path Rumi encourages, 'since God's generosity is so well known, and all the world is aware of His grace and kindness, why do you not ask and hope to receive from Him a robe of honor and a rich gift? Instead, you sit in despair and say, 'If He wills, He will give something to me.' And so you pray to Him not at all.'

Abandoning at age 30 what promised to be a lucrative law practice, John Collins escaped to Spain for a three-year sabbatical to search for the meaning of life. In SEEING THE UNSEEN: Opening the Closed Circuit of Everyday Consciousness, he relates his findings in maxims and identifies seven impediments that commonly hinder our capacity to render our everyday experience of people, places and things intelligible, meaningful and joyful. Collins believes the greatest obstacle to realizing personal fulfillment, or salvation or the Kingdom of God is psychological. Living our lives almost entirely on the conscious surface of Self, we neglect the unconscious core of our being, resulting in the inability of the whole Self to truly see and know reality. Collins suggests that religion's finest hour may come when it assumes responsibility for healing this rupture in our innermost being, allowing us to achieve greater understanding of ourselves, of the world and ultimately, of God.John Collins is a nearly retired general practice attorney in Bucks County, Pa., who graduated with honors in philosophy from Johns Hopkins University, and was subsequently awarded a law degree from the Harvard Law School in 1957. He also attended the Sorbonne, Catholic University, Princeton Theological Seminary and Villanova University for special studies. He served with the 82nd Airborne Division during the Korean War. He also served as a public defender, as an assistant district attorney, and as an unsuccessful candidate for the Pennsylvania state legislature. He is married and the father of three children.

Vision, more than any other sense, dominates our mental life. Our conscious visual experience of the world is so rich and detailed that we can hardly distinguish it from the real thing. But as Goodale and Milner make clear in their prize-winning book, Sight Unseen, our visual experience of the world is not all there is to vision. Some of the most important things that vision does for us never reach our consciousness at all. In this updated and extended new edition, Goodale and Milner explore one of the most extraordinary neurological cases of recent years—one that profoundly changed scientific views on the visual brain. It is the story of Dee Fletcher—a young woman who became blind to shape and form as a result of brain damage. Dee was left unable to recognize objects or even tell one simple geometric shape from another. As events unfolded, however, Goodale and Milner found that Dee wasn't in fact blind — she just didn't know that she could see. They showed, for example, that Dee could reach out and grasp objects with amazing dexterity, despite being unable to perceive their shape, size, or orientation. Taking us on a journey into the unconscious brain, the two scientists who made this incredible discovery tell the amazing story of their work, and the surprising conclusion they were forced to reach. Written to be accessible to students and popular science readers, this book is a fascinating illustration of the power of the 'unconscious' mind.

Sight Unseen reveals the cultural and biological realities of race, gender, and sexual orientation from the perspective of the blind. Through ten case studies and dozens of interviews, Ellyn Kaschak taps directly into the phenomenology of race, gender, and sexual orientation among blind individuals, along with the everyday epistemology of vision. Kaschak's work reveals not only how the blind create systems of meaning out of cultural norms but also how cultural norms inform our conscious and unconscious interactions with others regardless of our physical ability to see.
