A fatal addiction : war in the name of God by Thomas Block( Book )
6 editions published in 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 77 libraries worldwide
This unsettling book reviews specific instances of 'holy war' as proposed in the holy books of the major faith traditions, and illustrates how bellicose, war-like language is used to explain the spiritual quest. The author proposes that this intermingling of war and spirituality prepares the population for the coming of war. War as spiritual practice appears inevitable, due to this religio-violent education which is woven through all faith traditions. The institutional blending of the sacred and human aggression appear to be fundamental to human society. The second section of the book particu

Machiavelli in America by Thomas Block( Book )
8 editions published between 2013 and 2014 in English and held by 54 libraries worldwide
Machiavelli in America traces the influence of the Florentine thinker on American politics, from the Founders (c. 1770s) through today's rough-and-tumble political panorama. Machiavelli's ideas have been re-interpreted internationally as 'real-politik.' He proposed that the 'ends justify the means, ' and that any manner of fraud, violence or corruption must be utilized in attaining and retaining power. People, he assured us, are so mean, small and selfish that they will only act under necessity, so the successful prince must force the population, through whatever means necessary, to follow his

The fool returns by Tom Block( Book )
1 edition published in 2014 in English and held by 7 libraries worldwide
Based on Tom Block{u2019}s non-fiction study of the cross pollination between Jewish and Islamic mysticism (published as Shalom/Salaam: A Story of a Mystical Fraternity, Fons Vitae, 2010), The Fool Returns is a page turning, spiritual thriller based on fact. The Fool Returns centers on the idea that medieval Jewish thinkers discovered the underlying impetus for current political issues between Jews and Muslims in the Biblical story of Isaac and Ishmael (Genesis 21). They set a 500-year quest in motion, which was coming to fruition in 1992, when a NY bartender (Bill) had a card made from human bone thrown into his lap in the middle of the night, on the subway. If he succeeds in his quest, a positive energy will be released and Abraham{u2019}s original weakness before God reversed. A new age between these Children of Abraham would flower. What ensues is a voyage {u2013} both physical and spiritual {u2013} which takes Bill far from his life as a bartender into lost Iberia, where he meets an increasingly bizarre collection of crypto-Jews who have been waiting for him; descends into hidden?bone chapels;? must leap across a vast psychic abyss, work his way through subterranean tunnels deep beneath the city of Cáceres, Spain and bring the card to its final destination, somewhere on the other side of a bordello in ancient Lisbon. All the while, he is pursued by a shadowy figure from his past, a man named?Hoopoe.?

Duurzaamheidsonderzoek in de spiegel. Reflecties op het raakvlak tussen kennis en engagement ( Book )
2 editions published in 2014 in Dutch and held by 4 libraries worldwide
In Vlaanderen tekent zich een apart onderzoeksgebied af dat zich met duurzaamheidskwesties bezighoudt. Balancerend op het raakvlak tussen kennis en engagement beoogt de duurzaamheidsonderzoeker inzichten in de wereld die relevant zijn om maatschappelijke keuzes vorm te geven. En in die alles behalve vrijblijvende zoektocht botst de onderzoeker onvermijdelijk op aspecten van normativiteit en onzekerheid. ‘Duurzame ontwikkeling’ is immers geen objectief gegeven, maar een richtingƯgevend en daarom vaak geconstesteerd concept. Tegelijk blijkt uit diverse duurzaamheidscontroverses dat wetenschappelijke kennis alleen ontoereikend is om de maatschappelijke respons vorm te geven.0In dit boek reflecteren zowel ervaren als jonge Vlaamse duurzaamheidsonderzoekers op hun eigen, vaak gedurfde manier over hoe ze met deze complexiteit omgaan. Hoe hanteren ze het concept ‘duurzame ontwikkeling’ in hun eigen onderzoekspraktijk? Hoe ervaren of zien ze hun rol als onderzoekers in maatschappelijke veranderingsprocessen? Deze vaak persoonlijke bespiegelingen laten niet alleen de worstelingen en valkuilen zien waarmee duurzaamheidsonderzoekers worden geconfronteerd, maar bevatten ook tal van inspirerende en uitdagende suggesties om de zoektocht naar relevante, geëngageerde kennis verder te zetten
