A direct refutation of Freud's theories on the universality of the Oedipus complex, childhood latency, and the necessity of sexual repression to maintain a stable and civil society. 506 pp.

* THE CHALICE AND THE BLADE: Our History, Our Future, by Riane Eisler. The legacy of the feminine. Author Eisler tells a new story of Our cultural origins. Focusing upon Maria Gimbutas' findings of an early peaceful period in pre-Kurgan Europe and studies of Minoan society, Eisler argues that warfare and the war of the sexes are neither divinely nor biologically ordained, arguing for a more peaceful and cooperative type of partnership society as opposed to the dominator society more typically found. Parallels in many ways the findings of DeMeo in Saharasia regarding peaceful unarmored Matrist versus armored violent Patrist societies. 272 pp.

* SOCIETIES OF PEACE: Matriarchies Past Present and Future, Edited by Heide Gottner-Abendroth. A compilation of scholarly papers from the First and Second World Congresses on Matriarchal Societies.

* LEAVING MOTHER LAKE: A Girlhood at the Edge of the World, by Yang Erche Namu & Christine Mathieu. The touching story of Namu, a girl of the peaceful sex-positive Mosuo culture, hidden away in the mountains of Southwest China. Her story of place and culture, growing up and her talent for singing which eventually brings her to leave "Mother Lake" Lugu, and travel through other parts of patriarchal authoritarian China, and eventually into Europe and America. Wonderful insight into the sex-positive Mosuo culture, where women have a very high status, and select their own lovers from an early age onward, where marriage as we know it does not exist, and men are more closely economically and socially bonded to their maternal family. Another powerful validation of Reich's sex-economy and DeMeo's Saharasia, where men are "honored guests" but not dominant in the homes of their lovers, where peaceful social conditions are founded upon a bedrock of gentle childrearing and a genuinely free and self-regulated adolescent and adult sexuality. 294 pp.

* THE FALL: Evidence for a Golden Age, 6000 Years of Insanity, and the Dawning of a New Era, by Steve Taylor. It is not natural for human beings to kill each other, for men to oppress women, for individuals to accumulate massive wealth and power, or to abuse nature. The roots of our current malaise lie in an "ego explosion" which occurred several thousand years ago. Drawing upon James DeMeo's Saharasia and numerous other sources, author Taylor argues for a change in social structure back to more peaceful times. While navigating his own path and theory through numerous social controversies, and often (in our view) overly glamorizing subsistence-level cultures which may not deserve classification as an authentically "peaceful society", he argues powerfully for the existence of the early peaceful period in human prehistory, bringing new evidence to bear on the question. 336 pp.

* UNEARTHING ATLANTIS, An Archaeological Odyssey, by Charles Pellegrino. The Minoan civilization unearthed off the shores of Greece may be the real cradle of democracy, technology, and a model sex-economic society. Sifting through a dazzling range of evidence, Pellegrino reconstructs the advanced world that flourished on the Greek island of Thera and lays bare its many ties to the mythical city of Atlantis. And, he shows how it vanished in a volcanic eruption unequaled in the 3,500 years since. 325 pp.

* THE NEW VIEW OVER ATLANTIS, by John Michell. One of the very best and most scholarly accounts of ancient megalithic monuments in Europe, with an open attitude towards a more integrated and global civilization. He reveals non-random patterns to ancient stone monuments around the globe. The book gets a bit mystical in places, over-reaching to prove its case, but does introduce many new and fascinating observations, such as the layered construction of some megalithic "tombs" -- composed of peats and iron-rich clays and stones -- suggestive of ancient orgone energy accumulators. Richly illustrated and guaranteed to stimulate. 224 pp.

* THE VIKING DISCOVERY OF AMERICA: Excavation of a Norse Settlement in L'Anse aux Meadows, Newfoundland, by Helge Ingstad & Anne Stine Ingstad. A large format volume with color photos, overviewing Norse contacts in the New World before Columbus, with a specific focus on the excavations of Norse Settlement in Newfoundland.

* WHITE GOLD: The Extraordinary Story of Thomas Pellow and Islam's One Million White Slaves, by Giles Milton. The true story of white European slaves in 18th Century Algiers, Tunis and Morocco, through the horrid experiences of a Cornish cabin boy, taken prisoner at sea with his shipmates in 1716 by Barbary Muslim pirate corsairs. Their captors -- Ali Hakem and his netowrk of Islamic slave traders -- had declared war on the whole of Christian Europe. France, Spain, England and Italy had suffered many devastating attacks by Islamic raiders who would sail into quiet harbors as far north as Iceland, disembark and capture away the populations of entire coastal European villages. Thousands of European men, women and children had been snatched from their homes and taken in chains to the great slave markets of the Northwest African coast, for sale to the highest bidder. Pellow and his shipmates were bought by the tyrranical sultan of Morocco, Moulay Ismail, who was constructing an imperial palace of such scale and grandeur that it would surpass every other building in the world, a palace built entirely by Christian slave labor. The story unfolds on how Pellow, through ingenuity and bravery, manages to survive and finally escape 23 years later, while so many others perished under the Muslim whip. A shocking untold chapter in the history of the "religion of peace". 316 pp.

* THE PIRATE COAST: Thomas Jefferson, the First Marines, and the Secret Mission of 1805, by Richard Zacks. High adventure! After harassing shipping in the Atlantic and Mediterranean, stealing cargoes and enslaving ship passengers, and clashing with American frigates sent to protect them, Muslim leaders of Tripoli declared war on the young USA in 1801, with Jefferson as President. In 1803, USS Philadelphia accidentally ran aground in Tripoli, wherein the Muslim leader captured and enslaved its 300 occupants and renamed the ship "The Gift of Allah". Humiliated internationally, Jefferson ordered a daring rescue mission which involved the USA's small fleet of sailing ships, a nearly fatal 500-mile march of a tiny band of US Marines across the Lybian Desert, and the ultimate destruction of the "den of thieves", liberation of the 300 captives, and installation at US pressure a new government leadership and structure. 432 pp.

* THE POLITICALLY INCORRECT GUIDE TO ISLAM (AND THE CRUSADES), by Robert Spencer. The author draws upon his years of study and research into Islamic and world history, spotlighting what Muslims do as well as what they say (in Arabic) in mosques and in the Koran, to support his thesis that it is an intrinsically violence-promoting ideology, not comparable to modern Christianity, Judiasm, Buddhism, Hinduism, or other world religions. Detailing Islam's long history of violent jihad invasion and conquest, the forcible conversions of other cultures into the Muslim faith (or alternatively, their descent into dhimmitude slavery, or death), puncturing many PC myths about Islam being a "peaceful religion", or that it was "tolerant" and "scientifically developed" in prior centuries, or that "Islam respects women", etc. One by one, the myths fall away and deceptions are exposed, leaving us with a clear understanding of how and why modern jihad terrorism will never be restrained from within Islam, but only by a strong confrontation from without by non-Muslims, who are its primary targets. 270 pp.
