Summary

For more than thirty years, The Institute for Cultural Research (ICR) led the field in stimulating debate and examining ideas within the humanities. Among the Institute's active followers was J. D. Salinger, Robert Graves, Nobel Laureate Doris Lessing, and many others from all walks of life.

During its long and distinguished service, ICR published dozens of papers on cultural and cross-cultural themes. Written by scientists, scholars, novelists, musicians, and an array of others, these papers formed a unique resource that is as relevant today as it was decades ago.

In the years since ICR ceased formal activities, The Idries Shah Foundation has continued the spirit of its work, and have republished the full range of original monographs.
Available since: 02/07/2020.

    America's most popular progressive radio host and New York Times bestselling author Thom Hartmann reveals how and why neoliberalism became so prevalent in the United States and why it's time for us to turn our backs to it.With four decades of neoliberal rule coming to an end, America is at a crossroads. In this powerful and accessible book, Thom Hartmann demystifies neoliberalism and explains how we can use this pivotal point in time to create a more positive future. This book traces the history of neoliberalism-a set of capitalistic philosophies favoring free trade, low taxes on the rich, financial austerity, and deregulation of big business-up to the present day. Hartmann explains how neoliberalism was sold as a cure for wars and the Great Depression. He outlines the destructive impact that it has had on America, looking at how it has increased poverty, damaged the middle class, and corrupted our nation's politics.America is standing on the edge of a new progressive era. We can continue down the road to a neoliberal oligarchy, as supported by many of the nation's billionaires and giant corporations. Or we can choose to return to Keynesian economics and Alexander Hamilton's American Plan by raising taxes on the rich, reversing free trade, and building a society that works for all.

    19: The Musical is the dynamic and little-known story of Alice Paul, Ida B. Wells, Susan B. Anthony, Carrie Chapman Catt, Inez Milholland and the other suffragists who fought to get women the right to vote - The 19th Amendment. The inspirational story of these fearless women is brought to life through jazz, traditional musical standards style, spoken word, and hints of gospel. Alice Paul and the suffragist's fight for equality have been re-imagined for a new generation with a poignant and uplifting message that will resonate for years to come. 
    Originally created and performed on stage, 19: The Musical has been adapted for a new medium to reach a broader audience through audiobooks.

    The Art of War is an ancient Chinese military treatise dating from the late Spring and Autumn Period (roughly 5th century BC). The work, which is attributed to the ancient Chinese military strategist Sun Tzu, is composed of 13 chapters. Each one is devoted to a different set of skills or art related to warfare and how it applies to military strategy and tactics.  
    The Art of War remains the most influential strategy text in East Asian warfare, has influenced both East Asian and Western military theory and thinking, and has found a variety of applications in a myriad of competitive non-military endeavors across the modern world including espionage, culture, politics, business, and sports. 
    Considered one of history's finest military tacticians and analysts, his teachings and strategies formed the basis of advanced military training throughout the world.

    Fire is fascinating isn’t it? We love to watch fires, whether in a campfire, one in a backyard hearth, and in a house fireplace. We love to cook in it, use it to purify things, or even produce weapons. Building fires is also a lot of fun. What a rush to start a fire from sticks and fire starters that you put together then watch it burn.  And what about cooking “s’mores” as a dessert with your friends of family? There are also lots of methods to start a fire.Fires also protect us from wild animals. Even the largest predator doesn’t want to go near a fire. They are scared of it—and for good reason. There are also many legends of fire beings from the fire breathing dragon to the Phoenix which burns to death and is reborn out of the ashes.Fires have also destroyed many cities in history as well as wild fires which can destroy huge areas of land and the properties on it. These fires led to the development of fire departments.Cooking was first done on fires and is still done on many fires today. Thousands of years of recipes were all developed over open fires.There is also poetry written about fire. I’ve included some near the end of the book.Man’s climb from animals to modern humans is closely related to the usage of fire. We would probably not have survived through history without the command of fire.
