Children of the sun : a narrative of "decadence" in England after 1918 by Martin Green ( Book )
36 editions published between 1976 and 2008 in English and held by 1,256 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Examines a generation of British men who, in the aftermath of World War I, revolted against their fathers, believing traditional concepts of masculinity led to war, and attempted to redefine manhood. They became known as aesthetes or dandies. Major figures in this movement included Harold, Lord Acton and Brian Howard, followed by Evelyn Waugh, Cyril Connolly, Randolph Churchill, Cecil Beaton, W.H. Auden, and Christopher Isherwood. D.H. Lawrence was regarded as an "antidandy," while George Orwell and F.R. Leavis led the opposition to the aesthetic movement

Gandhi : voice of a new age revolution by Martin Green ( Book )

The name of Mahatma Gandhi is one of the most widely recognized in the world. His Autobiography has been translated into all the major languages, and has been continuously in print since it was published. Together with the popularity of the film Gandhi, and the debate over the film, this figure has come to fire the imagination as few people do. Yet, very little is known about Gandhi. Regarding the inner life and personal relationships, far less is known about him than about scores of lesser figures. This biography redresses the situation. In the process, it examines many aspects of Gandhi's development not hitherto covered. For example, in the first half of his life Gandhi suffered from a debilitating shyness. Up to the age of twenty-five he looked like a loser. In his middle and later years he was recurrently in contact with the man who would inspire his assassination. All of this gives Gandhi's life a shape of tragic dignity and doom. A unique feature of this book is its examination of Gandhi's youthful encounter in London with a climate of ideas often called the New Age. Like the New Age movement of today - which had its origins in earlier New Ages, particularly pre-World War I England - this New Age stressed spiritual growth, a love of peace, reverence for the environment, and vegetarianism. Among the figures who had an impact on Gandhi were Tolstoy, Annie Besant, Elena Petrovna Blavatsky, and John Ruskin. This first biography to connect Gandhi's development with the New Age, to show him as a son of the New Age, also investigates many personal relationships, which have been largely ignored or misunderstood. It thereby helps put into focus one of the most enigmatic and challenging figures of our century

Prophets of a new age : the politics of hope from the eighteenth through the twenty-first centuries by Martin Green ( Book )
4 editions published in 1992 in English and held by 402 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
More than crystals and occultism, New Age movements have existed throughout modern history in many guises, finding their strength and popularity in a visionary politics of hope at which realists traditionally balk. Yet what realist would have dreamed of the overnight end of the Cold War, German reunification, or the dismantling of Apartheid? In Prophets of a New Age, Martin Green takes a serious look at three centuries of a social and cultural movement much maligned by academics and men of action. Defining a New Ager as one who sees "the possibility of a radically new life for anyone courageous enough to embrace it," Green examines an extraordinary array of thought and deeds of revolutionaries, journalists, vegetarians, and poets--hermits and leaders of nations, all of whom are linked by a common concern for change in society. From Paine, Tolstoy, and Gandhi to Shirley MacLaine and Gary Snyder, an imaginative though disparate group of voices is heard and analyzed in concert for the first time. On the eve of the millennium, Martin Green gives us New Ages present and past to shed light on our future in this revelatory work of cultural history
