"Adam Parfrey is one of the nation's most provocative publishers."--"Seattle Weekly"
"Secret society historian Craig Heimbichner follows the Middle Path to wisdom. He works the graveyard shift in the secret lodge."--Joan d'Arc, "Paranoia" magazine
Secret societies--now a staple of bestseller novels--are pictured as sinister cults that use hooded albinos to menace truth-seekers. Some conspiracy books claim that fraternal orders are the work of serpentine aliens and interbred humans who wish to supplant earth of its energy, and later, its very existence.
On the other side of the aisle, books by high-ranked Freemasons--skeptical in tone but no less partisan in approach--protect their organization's public image by denying the existence of its most contentious ideas.
"Ritual America" reveals the biggest secret of them all: that the influence of fraternal brotherhoods on this country is vast, fundamental, and hidden in plain view. In the early twentieth century, as many as one-third of America belonged to a secret society. And though fezzes and tiny car parades are almost a thing of the past, the Gnostic beliefs of Masonic orders are now so much a part of the American mind that the surrounding pomp and circumstance has become faintly unnecessary.
The authors of "Ritual America" contextualize hundreds of rare and many never-before printed images with entertaining and far-reaching commentary, making an esoteric subject provocative, exciting, and approachable.
Adam Parfrey is the author of "Cult Rapture: Revelations of the Apocalyptic Mind" and "It's a Man's World: Men's Adventure Magazines, the Postwar Pulps." He is editor of the influential Apocalypse Culture series "Love, Sex, Fear Death: The Inside Story of the Process Church of the Final Judgment."
Craig Heimbichner has recently appeared on a National Geographic documentary about the Bohemian Grove, contributed to the Feral House compilation "Secret and Suppressed II," and wrote about the famous occult order the O.T.O. in "Blood and Altar."

Late seventeenth- and early eighteenth-century England - the period between the Restoration and the South Sea Bubble - was dramatically transformed by the massive cost of fighting wars, and, significantly, a huge increase in the re-export trade. This book seeks to ask how commerce was legitimated, promoted, fashioned, defined and understood in this period of spectacular commercial and financial "revolution." It examines the packaging and portrayal of commerce, and of commercial knowledge, positioning itself between studies of merchant culture on the one hand and of the commercialisation of society on the other. It focuses on four main areas: the Royal Exchange where the London trading community gathered; sermons preached before mercantile audiences; periodicals and newspapers concerned with trade; and commercial didactic literature. Dr NATASHA GLAISYER teaches in the Department of History at the University of York.
(A) persuasively argued and perceptive book. (...) An important and timely addition to our understanding of the often heterogeneous and fragmented culture of commercial activity in the late seventeenth and early eighteenth centuries. (...) For economic historians interested in the intersection of commerce and culture in this pivotal period, this is an essential text. EH.NETProvides fascinating and thought-provoking insight. (...) A sophisticated, detailed and highly knowledgeable account. HISTORY (Provides) a useful manual for historians exploring the business and economic history of the period.

"10 Lies Men Believe" is a compassionate but confrontational look at the reasons why so many Christian men today are in serious crisis. The author, who has spent eight years confronting the abuse of women in more than twenty countries, believes men are failing in marriage, fatherhood, friendships, and careers because of ten wrong mind-sets inherited from culture. With gut-level honesty, the author offers practical answers for men who struggle with a variety of issues, including addiction, abusive tendencies, pornography, controlling behavior, and emotional problems rooted in a lack of proper fathering. The book is also an excellent resource for women who are suffering because of mistreatment by the men in their lives.

The innocent and the deceived will be set free and empowered as they read this life changing book. "There is a time for everything, and a season for every activity... a time to be silent and a time to speak" (Ecclesiastes 3:1, 6). For far too long people have experienced abuse in the church and have been assigned to a place of secrecy and shame. Hurt and disillusioned, multitudes have left the church. Their tragic stories are related in Abused by the Church so that healing, restoration and reform can take place. This is the hour when those things done in secret must be exposed to the light. Because generalities will neither convince nor convict, specific examples of abuse and injustice are presented. It is the time for genuine change--for justice to rule in the place of tyranny. The hour is at hand for Christ's wounded ones to be healed and restored to the Church. Those who have wandered off the path of servant leadership will be ushered back behind Christ where they can retrieve their destiny. As they read this work a fresh passion for Him and for His purposes will fill their heart. Those previously disheartened or fallen leaders will be called to assemble and take their place as generals in His end time army. Victims will become victors! Donna Rigney and her husband Jack are pastors of a non-denominational church in North-central Florida. They also serve as ministers at a youth detention facility and travel extensively to share the message of the Gospel. A successful playwright, inspirational speaker and author, Donna has previously written the very impacting prophetic book, The Mysteries of Heaven and Hell Revealed.

Publisher Marketing: Islamic terrorism is no threat to the West. On the contrary, it is a phantom created to serve Western imperialistic goals. Such groups as exist are intertwined with Western power through a network of occult secret societies, that date back to the Babylonian Kabbalah of the 6th century BC, and a plot to rule the world by magic and deception.
Under Herod the Great, a series of dynasties arose, who imposed a corrupt version of Christianity upon the Roman world. During the Crusades, their association with the Ismaili Assassins formed the basis of what is known as Scottish Rite Freemasonry.
When Napoleon conquered Egypt, these Freemasons reconnected with their brethren there, sparking developments like the Occult Revival of the late 19th century, the Salafi reform movement of Islam, promoted by Saudi Arabia, and Nazism. They founded the Muslim Brotherhood, a collective of impostors run by the CIA, to foment a Clash of Civilizations, and the Anglo-American New World Order.
Covering a wide array of hot-button, often polarizing subjects such as Zionism, Nazism, radical terrorists factions, and where each fits into this highly controversial picture... an in-depth view of secret societies, terrorism and present day conflicts, from the perspective that all are interconnected, related and fueling each other. -- RJ McGill "http://www.bloggernews.net/114522"
A devotion to objective truth, a courageous independent spirit and a keen analytical mind.

What I'm saying now:
'Take first step today'
Or will you keep the world waiting
To enjoy your thoughts someday?
To all of those who have searched and not found, to all of those who are lost and hurting in the spaces of life: You have a choice. Instead of remaining frozen with nowhere to go, look into the mirror with peace and love in your heart. In The Writing's on the Wall: Hope for Self-Help Addicts, author and poet Kaptain Obvious presents a remarkable collection of poems and stories to help us balance the painful realities of life with a perspective of understanding and purpose.
Love is how God,
Refers to himself
Not a physical person
Not to place on a shelf
So armed with this knowledge
(His insight we got)
We showed up on earth;
And then quickly forgot
God is still watching,
Recording these deeds
Are we fully aware
Our actions are seeds?
With all our human flaws, everyone can benefit from self-healing and from believing and understanding God's intention. Through gentle, insightful style and simple rhyme, Kaptain Obvious simplifies the complexities of life and offers a fresh perspective on just what the world demands from us and what we deserve to demand in return.
The obvious is painful
And it cuts like a knife
But soon as you see it:
The truth changes your life.
