Choose life : a dialogue by Arnold Toynbee( Book )

27 editions published between 1976 and 1992 in 3 languages and held by 1,609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The topics discussed in this book are of very diverse kinds. Some of them are urgent concern at the present time, but some of them are issues of perennial importance that have been pondered and discussed by human beings ever since the unknown date at which our ancestors first awoke to consciousness. It seems probable that these perennial questions will continue to be debated so long as mankind survives in the psychosomatic form in which we exist in our material environment, that is to say, in the biosphere that covers the planet earth

Together, Daisaku Ikeda and Josef Derbulav explore a wide range of topics, starting with a discussion of the tension between tradition and modernization in Japan and elsewhere. They compare humanism in East and West, and Buddhism and Christianity. Focusing on the crucial topic of education, they consider the roles of ethics and religion, and zero in on concrete problems and issues: education and political authority, absenteeism, violence in schools, and juvenile delinquency

Fox family : four seasons of animal life by Minoru Taketazu( Book )

3 editions published in 1979 in English and held by 202 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Throughout history the fox has fascinated man. Appearing in folklore everywhere, this lovable but undomesticated creature has long remained a mystery. The present volume does much to dispel this mystery. In 90 full-color dramatic photographs, a dedicated naturalist and skilled photographer presents a compelling study of a year of fox family life, tracing it from the conception of the cubs through their birth and maturity to their final separation from their parents as the young foxes strike off across the bleak winter landscape to begin families of their own. The story begins among the stark white ice floes on the shore of the Sea of Okhotsk, as male and female come together to start a family amid the icy winter winds blowing down from Siberia. In the spring the cubs are born, dark balls of fur completely dependent upon their parents for life and sustenance. Their seemingly bottomless stomachs mean that the mother and father must constantly forage for food, but there is obvious pride in the parents' eyes as they watch the cubs grow and play. By summer the cubs have the physical characteristics of grownups, but the pictures catching them dashing around the fields after insects and the shadows of birds show them to be the inexperienced adults that they are. This is the season when the parents teach their children to fend for themselves, taking them farther and farther afield on foraging trips that will prepare them for their lives on their own. Finally, the autumn, the saddest part of the year: as the cold winds once again howl and the leaves turn to russet and gold, it is time for the family to disperse. The young foxes seem hesitant to leave their parents, but the mother knows that they must: only then can the age-old cycle continue. In a world where the incursions of man and modernization are increasingly endangering wildlife everywhere, the author dramatically presents the Ezo fox of Hokkaido, Japan's northernmost main island and last frontier. The striking photographs and informative text, supplemented by a scientific essay, present a moving story of the fox family.--Adapted from dust jacket

The Japanese and the Jews by Isaiah BenDasan( Book )

11 editions published between 1972 and 1991 in English and held by 28 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Writing in the allusive and freely associative style characteristic of the popular Japanese essay form, the author compares and contrasts the Japanese and the Jews with keen critical insight tempered by affection. He records their attitudes and responses to such basic human matters as food, water, spiritual freedom, physical security, government and man's relation to natural forces. While drawing freely from personal experiences, literature and popular sources, he also turns to such traditional materials as medieval Japanese social and legal documents, the Talmud, and the Torah in his search for the forces that have shaped the Japanese and the Jew as we know them today
