The world turned upside down : the global battle over god, truth, and power by Melanie Phillips( Book )

13 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 529 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In what we tell ourselves is an age of reason, we are behaving increasingly irrationally. An astonishing number of people subscribe to celebrity-endorsed cults, Mayan Armageddon prophecies, scientism, and other varieties of New Age, anti-enlightenment philosophies. Millions more advance popular conspiracy theories. Here, Melanie Phillips explains that the basic cause of this explosion of irrationality is the slow but steady marginalization of religion. We tell ourselves that faith and reason are incompatible, but the opposite is the case. It was Christianity and the Hebrew Bible, Phillips asserts, that gave us our concepts of reason, progress, and an orderly world on which science and modernity are based. Without its religious traditions, the West has drifted into mass derangement where truth and lies, right and wrong, victim and aggressor are all turned upside down. Worst of all, asserts Phillips, this abandonment of rationality leaves the West vulnerable to legitimate threats.--From publisher description
Londonistan : how Britain is creating a terror state within by Melanie Phillips( Book )

26 editions published between 2006 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The suicide bombings carried out in London in 2005 by British Muslims revealed an enormous fifth column of Islamist terrorists and their sympathizers. Under the noses of British intelligence, London has become the European hub for the promotion, recruitment and financing of Islamic terror and extremism -- so much so that it has been mockingly dubbed Londonistan. In this ground-breaking book, Melanie Phillips pieces together the story of how Londonistan developed as a result of the collapse of traditional British identity and accommodation of a particularly virulent form of multiculturalism. Londonistan has become a country within the country and not only threatens Britain but its special relationship with the U.S. as well
The ascent of woman : a history of the suffragette movement and the ideas behind it by Melanie Phillips( Book )

8 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 248 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The Ascent of Woman sets the high drama of the rise of the suffragettes against the moral and intellectual debates of the age, which fissured the women's movement. It chronicles not just the split between the constitutionally minded suffragists led by Millicent Fawcett and the militant suffragettes led by Emmeline and Christabel Pankhurst, but the bitter divisions among the militants as women recoiled from the Pankhursts' despotic style. Phillips describes how the violence both hindered and helped the cause, and how it was the role of women in the First World War, that was crucial in finally securing them the vote." "This, though, is a drama of extraordinary ideas as much as a history of individuals and events. The Ascent of Woman reveals how female suffrage was seen as the way to elevate humanity on to a higher plane of existence through the taming and transformation of men. What emerges is a picture of a political force split on virtually everything: the role women in society; the balance to be struck between sexual freedom and family duties; and the relationship with men - arguments which to a startling extent prefigured contemporary debate over issues that remain unresolved."--Jacket

The legacy by Melanie Phillips( Book )

7 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 22 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Russell Woolfe, a faded TV producer, is struggling with his father’s death. Deeply uncomfortable with his own Jewish identity, he is torn between anger with his father—estranged over Russell’s marrying a non-Jewish woman – and grief over their failure to reconcile. At his father’s memorial Russell meets Joe Kuchinsky, a Polish survivor who unaccountably latches on to him. Kuchinsky claims to possess an ancient Hebrew manuscript that has been in his family for generations and which he wants to have translated before he dies. Kuchinsky believes fervently that the manuscript contains some important ancient wisdom—perhaps, even, the key to the survival of the Jewish people. Despite his doubts, Russell agrees to inspect the manuscript and tell Kuchinsky what it contains. Thus begins an international mystery that stretches a thousand years in the past, is wrapped in the tragedy of the Holocaust, and which comes to a startling conclusion that has dire personal consequences for everyone caught up in the saga." -- Provided by publisher
