Lonely Planet: The world's leading travel guide publisher*

Greedy Lords, dubious heroes, wicked relations and innocents in peril - today's world sounds like a grim fairytale!

Travelling along the infamous 'Axis of Evil' led to Tony Wheeler's Bad Lands - now he's going deeper into the world's darkest corners to explore a rogue's gallery of troubled nations.

Every country has its problems, but some problems seem so vexed, so intractable, so absurd, you can only shake your head. Tony Wheeler trains his well-travelled eyes on some of these places and attempts to understand how things got so messed up. Along the way he gets stoned (with the thrown variety) in Palestine, scores a speeding ticket in Zimbabwe, gets arrested for photographing a bar in the Congo, and visits Osama bin Laden's Abbottabad in Pakistan. Join Tony and find out if there's a happily-ever-after in these tales from the dark side.

Author: Tony Wheeler

 Examining a vast array of esoteric subjects from the earliest
times until this current era, Modern
Esoteric takes a radically different perspective on the social, scientific
and economic issues of our day.

Reality is not what it appears. A
number of disciplines and practices ranging from ancient Vedic literature to
quantum physics, from meditation and prayer to intentional manifestation, to
name a few, are coming together around concepts that are beginning to link
actual physical reality to our thoughts and consciousness in a feedback loop
where our consciousness is not merely influenced by reality as we perceive it,
but reality is, in turn, influenced by our thoughts.

Organized
into three sections (Lifeology, Control and Thrive), Modern Esoteric: Beyond Our
Senses by World Explorer magazine
editor Brad Olsen (CCC Publishing, March 2014) examines the flaws in modern
history and looks at how ancient esoteric teachings, coupled with accelerated scientific
advancements, can be used to reverse the dead-end course the world is heading
towards.. The Lifeology section explores the long and storied “alternative
narrative” of life on this planet. In the Control section, author Brad Olsen
examines how Big Brother is here in the form of the New World Order, and how
they keep the knowledge of humankind’s true nature from the mass population.
Finally, the Thrive section looks at all the ways humans are evolving to
achieve their full potential. Indeed, the revolution is consciousness.
































 






 





Through exploration and
the integration of cutting-edge science with ancient wisdom, Olsen believes the
dawn of our new society is faced on the one hand with global tyranny, or we can
overcome the oppression and advance towards universal abundance and
enlightenment. Without government and media manipulation this can be possible, and
the Golden Age will be attained with the rapid advancement of human
consciousness.


















An intimate journey across and in search of America, as told by one of its most beloved writers, in a deluxe centennial edition

In September 1960, John Steinbeck embarked on a journey across America. He felt that he might have lost touch with the country, with its speech, the smell of its grass and trees, its color and quality of light, the pulse of its people. To reassure himself, he set out on a voyage of rediscovery of the American identity, accompanied by a distinguished French poodle named Charley; and riding in a three-quarter-ton pickup truck named Rocinante.
 
His course took him through almost forty states: northward from Long Island to Maine; through the Midwest to Chicago; onward by way of Minnesota, North Dakota, Montana (with which he fell in love), and Idaho to Seattle, south to San Francisco and his birthplace, Salinas; eastward through the Mojave, New Mexico, Arizona, to the vast hospitality of Texas, to New Orleans and a shocking drama of desegregation; finally, on the last leg, through Alabama, Virginia, Pennsylvania, and New Jersey to New York.
 
Travels with Charley in Search of America is an intimate look at one of America's most beloved writers in the later years of his life—a self-portrait of a man who never wrote an explicit autobiography. Written during a time of upheaval and racial tension in the South—which Steinbeck witnessed firsthand—Travels with Charley is a stunning evocation of America on the eve of a tumultuous decade. This Penguin Classics Deluxe Edition also features French flaps and deckle-edged paper.

For more than sixty-five years, Penguin has been the leading publisher of classic literature in the English-speaking world. With more than 1,500 titles, Penguin Classics represents a global bookshelf of the best works throughout history and across genres and disciplines.
