Book Of The Fourth World from the Author: Gordon Brotherston. The Book of the Fourth World offers detailed analyses of texts that range far back into the centuries of civilised life from what is now Latin- and Anglo-America. At the time of its 'discovery', the American continent was identified as the Fourth World of our planet. In the course of just a few centuries its original inhabitants, though settled there for millennia and countable in many millions, have come to be perceived as a marginal if not entirely dispensable factor in the continent's destiny. Today the term has been taken up again by its native peoples, to describe their own world: both its threatened present condition, and its political history, which stretches back thousands of years before Columbus. In order to explore the literature of this world, Brotherston uses primary sources that have traditionally been ignored because they have not conformed to Western definitions of oral and written literature, such as the scrolls of the Algonkin, the knotted strings (Quipus) of the Inca, Navajo dry-paintings and the encyclopedic pages of Meso-America's screenfold books.

The Fourth World from the Author: Diamela Eltit. "Gerdes' brief but informative introduction makes clear that he has been a sensitive reader of El cuarto mundo. The two narrators, although twins - one male, one female, tell different tales and use language very differently. Translation is competent, but Gerdes' own language lacks the dynamic energy of Eltit's, perhaps because he follows the Spanish structures so closely"--Handbook of Latin American Studies, v. 58.

A Fourth World from the Author: Bernard J. James. This book examines dominant beliefs in the West during the last three centuries and how they shape modernism and postmodernism. The implication of these beliefs from a cultural and ecological standpoint are examined with respect to the limits on rationalism, especially in the sciences, for the next century. This book is the first to tackle the idea of ecological limits and its implications for world cultures during the twenty-first century. This is neither a strict anthropological nor ecological examination of its subject but a combination of the two, as it concerns the post-modern world.Contents: Preface; Concerning Sin and Shadows; Elegant Amnesia; The First True Post-Modern; Denial's Undeniable Pleasures; Time, Place and Ego; I Feel, Therefore I am Afraid; 'Damnable and Detestable Curiosity'; A Daunting Paradox; The Twenty-First Century as a Fourth World.

The American Empire And The Fourth World from the Author: Anthony J. Hall. Anthony Hall presents a sweeping analysis of encounters between indigenous people and the European empires, national governments, and global corporations on the moving frontiers of globalization since Columbus discovered America. How should we respond to the emergence of the United States as the military, commercial, and cultural centre of a global empire? How can we elaborate a global rule of law based on equality and democracy when the world's most powerful polity acknowledges no higher authority in the international arena than its own domestic priorities? For Hall the answer lies in the concept of the Fourth World, an inclusive intellectual tent covering a wide range of movements whose leaders seek to implement alternative views of globalization. Larger than any earlier political movement, the Fourth World embraces basic principles that include the inherent rights of self-determination and a more just approach to the crafting and enforcement of international law.

The Twilight Of The Fourth World from the Author: Carlos Mundy. The fist part of the Twilight of the Fourth World, Book 1: The Rainbow Warrior narrates a dream and like dreams, it is woven with threads of two worlds: the real and imaginary one. It is a choral and visual composition. A caricature and a kaleidoscope of human emotions, painted with light and thick strokes of a brush, in a simple language. The teachings of several great masters enlighten us throughout. The alter ego of planet Earth, Plutonio, came into being through an act of faith and will. Life in Plutonio was idyllic, and the nations of the planet lived in peace and harmony until they came in touch with two humans and chaos was installed. The spiritual teachings are inspired by the Dalai Lama, osho, deepak Chopra, Talbot Mundy, Joseph Campbell, Enrique Barrios, Lao Tse and other enlightentened masters. As for Book 2, The return of Queen Malik, the events take place in the year 2039 as the planet is heading to provoked and controlled disaster manipulated to achieve the dictatorship of the Council of Corportations. The parallelisms to many events that are already happening, gives the reader food for thought. The authors have been inspired by the prophecies of the American Hopi Indians. The Twilight of the Fourth World has been endorsed by Deepak Chopra, His Majesty the King of Tibet, Melissa Rossi, Marisa Berenson and Grandfather Lee Standing Bear moore, Keeper of Manataka.
