Europa from the Author: Richard Seddon. Rudolf Steiner spoke of history not only as the outcome of mere cause and effect on the physical plane, but also as the result of influences from spiritual beings. Europa, A Spiritual Biography offers a unique view of history that considers Europe from the point of view of the rulerships of the various Archangels of Time -- from Michael's regency between the mid-sixth and the third century B.C., up to his present rulership between 1879 and the twenty-second century. Richard Seddon gives a clear overview of Steiner's extensive research, set against an outline of outer events extended to the present day.

Richard Seddon King Of God S Own from the Author: Tom Brooking. Casting a long shadow over New Zealand history, Richard John Seddon, Premier from 1893 to his untimely death in 1906, held a clear vision for the country he led. Pushing New Zealand in more egalitarian directions than ever before, he was both the builder and the maintenance man - if not the architect - of our country. Challenging popular opinion of New Zealand's longest-serving Prime Minister as a ruthless pragmatist, cunning misogynist and Imperialistic jingoist, this landmark biography of Seddon presents an altogether more sympathetic, erudite appraisal. Reconciling two generations of New Zealand scholarship, Richard Seddon: King of God's Own demonstrates that, while holding fast to common ideals, Seddon was successful by mastering the art of the possible. He knew instinctively what his electorate would tolerate and remained in step with public opinion. Despite contradictions in his attitudes towards other races, he fought to ensure privilege did not become entrenched in what he envisioned as a white man's utopia. In this perceptive new evaluation, political historian Tom Brooking explains Seddon's complex relationship with Maori and shows how he in fact held a progressively bi-cultural vision for the future of 'God's Own Country'. Seddon was no saint. Somewhat autocratic and given to petty nepotism, he nevertheless remains the most dominant political leader in our country's history. Internationally, his high profile within the Empire helped put New Zealand on the map. Domestically, he sought a middle ground between free-market extremism and full-blown socialism. And more privately, Seddon was a devoted family man, his actions shaped much more by his supportive wife and assertive daughters than has previously been realised. Richard Seddon: King of God's Own is a superlative achievement in New Zealand history writing. Absorbing, wide-ranging and beautifully articulated, it reframes and repositions one of the founding fathers of modern New Zealand.

The Future Of Humanity And The Earth from the Author: Richard Seddon. Richard Seddon draws together the essence of hundreds of lectures to create this broad overview of Rudolf Steiner's spiritual research into the course of human evolution. His fascinating survey takes us from the present to the far-future stages of our planet. He also discusses the respiritualization both of the earth and of the whole solar system, which were not mentioned by Steiner but throw considerable light on events in the Apocalypse and on the eventual transforming of evil to good.

World Saviors And Messiahs Of The Roman Empire 28 Bce 135 Ce from the Author: Milo Kearney. This book seeks to achieve a better understanding of Jesus and of the birth of Christianity by placing them in the context of twenty-some living World Saviors and Messiahs who apeared in the first century-and-a-half of the Roman Empire (here defined as the Soterial Age or the Age of Saviors).

Green Industrial Applications Of Ionic Liquids from the Author: Robin D. Rogers. This book is entirely devoted to research in the area of ionic liquids, which are salts with melting points below 100°C. It explores the promise of ionic liquids and sets the research agenda for the field. With a distinct bias towards actual industrial R&D applications, the book is virtually a manifesto for the new age of Green Chemistry. The major industrial challenges to sustainability - the book's leitmotiv - are: reducing water use; increasing energy efficiency; reducing reliance of fossil fuel feedstocks; increasing use of renewables; including sustainability as a major economic criterion. Thereafter, the book goes on to consider precisely where ionic liquids can help in achieving this new vision, via new techniques, new processes, new reactions. The Safety/Health/Environment properties of the ionic liquids are also considered. Finally, it is clear that there needs to be a major increase in the number of workers studying ionic liquids if this promise of a new Green Chemistry is to be achieved.

Crystal Engineering The Design And Application Of Functional Solids from the Author: Kenneth Richard Seddon. Crystal engineering is a rapidly emerging, cross-disciplinary field that seeks to develop protocols for predicting and controlling the structure and thus the functional properties of solids. Such properties range from the mundane (colour, melting point) to those of great relevance to materials scientists and physicists (polarity, porosity, conductivity). The emergence of the field can be attributed to a corresponding rise in the importance of supramolecular chemistry and its relevance to areas as diverse as polymorphism in pharmaceuticals, nonlinear optics and high Tc superconductors. The crystal engineer needs an understanding of bonding theory, computational chemistry, applied spectroscopy, structural methods, synthesis strategies, and applications of custom-designed solids. This book contains chapters on all these topics, written by internationally recognised experts, in addition to contributions from some of the leading researchers in the field. Readership: Synthetic chemists, solid-state chemists, physicists, pharmaceutical researchers interested in polymorphism and the bulk properties of solids; theoreticians interested in the prediction of bulk properties. The book can serve both as an introduction to the field and an advanced research reference.
