Most people are aware that the traditional values of Christendom are under attack from the New Morality; but few are aware how far the New Morality has spread and to what extent its advocates have infiltrated important mass media of communication like the B.B.C. This documented book is the first review of the whole New Moralist battle line, from Dr. Alex Comfort to the Bishop of Woolwich, from the authors of the Quaker Report to Professor Carstairs, from the Cambridge theologians to the organizers of the Edinburgh Drama Conference. It records what each is saying and examines their effect upon the thought and action of modern Britain. It also suggest what the end result of the New Morality could be in terms of industrial prosperity, national security and the survival of Britain as a great nation

Travel and transformation by Garth Lean( Book )

11 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and held by 71 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Travel and tourism have a long association with the notion of transformation, both in terms of self and social collectives. What is surprising, however, is that this association has, on the whole, remained relatively underexplored and unchallenged, with little in the way of a corpus of academic literature surrounding these themes. Instead, much of the literature to date has focused upon describing and categorising tourism and travel experiences from a supply-side perspective, with travellers themselves defined in terms of their motivations and interests. While the tourism field can lay claim to several significant milestone contributions, there have been few recent attempts at a rigorous re-theorization of the issues arising from the travel/transformation nexus. The opportunity to explore the socio-cultural dimensions of transformation through travel has thus far been missed. Bringing together geographers, sociologists, cultural researchers, philosophers, anthropologists, visual researchers, literary scholars and heritage researchers, this volume explores what it means to transform through travel in a modern, mobile world. In doing so, it draws upon a wide variety of traveller perspectives - including tourists, backpackers, lifestyle travellers, migrants, refugees, nomads, walkers, writers, poets, virtual travellers and cosmetic surgery patients - to unpack a cultural phenomenon that has captured the imagination since the very first works of Western literature
The black and white book: a handbook of revolution by Sydney Cook( Book )

Transformative travel in a mobile world by Garth Lean( Book )

13 editions published between 2012 and 2016 in English and held by 54 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book presents an exploration of the process of travel and transformation in a modern, mobile world. It probes the often unquestioned assumption that travel is simply transformative, and observes the complexities of the phenomenon and how it is interpreted and re-interpreted by those who identify themselves as having been transformed by travel. The book draws upon data from an ongoing, longitudinal study of travel and transformation. The book is divided into six chapters, separated by five participant stories of travel and transformation, followed by a brief afterword. Chapter 2 outlines the methods and philosophies employed to gather the data used in the exploration of travel and transformation conducted in the remainder of the volume. Chapters 3-6 divide travel into three phases which, although conceptually problematic, provide important markers in the narration of transformation through travel (and travel in general): 'before' (Chapter 3), 'during' (Chapters 4 and 5) and 'after' (Chapter 6)
Good God, it works! : an experiment in faith by Garth Lean( Book )

4 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 50 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The author tells of his search for a faith relevant to the age. The "experiments" he describes are drawn from the experiences of his family and other people known personally to him, often through their family and other people known personally to him, often through their asociation in Moral Re-Armament. They cover, among others, situations arising from marriage, journalism, the crisis of illness, the "generation gap", student revolutions, and the "new morality."

Travel and representation( Book )

3 editions published in 2017 in English and held by 16 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is a timely volume of essays that explores and re-examines the various convergences between literature, art, photography, television, cinema and travel. The essays do so in a way that appreciates the entanglement of representations and travel at a juncture in theoretical work that recognizes the limits of representation, things that lie outside of representation and the continuing power of representation. The emphasis is on the myriad ways travelers/scholars employ representation in their writing/analyses as they re-think the intersections between travelers, fields of representation, imagination, emotions and corporeal experiences in the past, the present and the future
