Sacred books of the East : including selections from the Vedic hymns, Zend-Avesta, Dhammapada, Upanishads, the Koran, and the life of Buddha by Epiphanius Wilson( )

In the age of Obama, racial attitudes have become more complicated and nuanced than ever before. Inspired by a president who is unlike any Black man ever seen on our national stage, we are searching for new ways of understanding Blackness. In this book, the author, a commentator and journalist tackles what it means to be Black in America today. He begins by examining the concept of "Post-Blackness," a term that defines artists who are proud to be Black but don't want to be limited by identity politics and boxed in by race. He soon discovers that the desire to be rooted in but not constrained by Blackness is everywhere. In this book he argues that Blackness is infinite, that any identity imaginable is Black, and that all expressions of Blackness are legitimate. Here, he divulges intimate, funny, and painful stories of how race and racial expectations have shaped his life and explores how the concept of Post-Blackness functions in politics, society, psychology, art, culture, and more. He knew he could not tackle this topic all on his own so he turned to 105 of the most important luminaries of our time for frank and thought-provoking opinions, including the Reverend Jesse Jackson, Cornel West, Henry Louis Gates Jr., Malcolm Gladwell, Michael Eric Dyson, Melissa Harris-Perry, Harold Ford Jr., Kara Walker, Kehinde Wiley, Glenn Ligon, Paul Mooney, New York Governor David Paterson, Greg Tate, Aaron McGruder, Soledad O'Brien, Kamala Harris, Chuck D, Mumia Abu-Jamal, and many others. By engaging this eclectic group, and employing his insight, courage, and wit, the author delivers a clarion call on race in America and how we can change our perceptions for a better future. Destroying the notion that there is a correct way of being Black, this book changes how we perceive race

The ancient Egyptian book of the dead by E. A. Wallis Budge( Book )

5 editions published between 2016 and 2018 in English and held by 102 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Ancient Book of the Dead brought to life! Throughout centuries, mysterious "books of the dead men" were often found buried alongside mummies and inside tombs by Egyptian locals, grave robbers, and archeologists; however, the inscrutable writing and cryptic contents remained a perplexing puzzle until the discovery of the Rosetta Stone, which enabled ancient Egyptian hieroglyphics to be translated for the first time. Soon after, scholars discerned that these grave books contained secret spells, incantations, and prayers to help, protect, and guide the dead during their journey through the underworld and to the afterlife. Here, in one volume and based on the classic editions from E.A. Wallis Budge, one of the most renowned Egyptologists of all time, this scholarly compendium delves into the history, motifs, and themes found in these afterlife companions before concluding with Budge's timeless translation of the Book of the Dead. Completely illustrated throughout, this volume brings ancient Egypt's vibrant past and secrets of the dead to life, enchanting and fascinating modern readers once again. -- back cover
