One of the first books ever published to objectively study the life and work of Franklin Jones, also known as Bubba Free John, Da Free John, Adi Da, an infamous cult leader who attracted both devotees and detractors. Contains original essays by Professor Scott Lowe (University of Wisconsin) and Professor David Lane (Mt. San Antonio College). Review by Professor Robert S. Ellwood, formerl Bashford Professor of Oriental Studies, USC, writing in NOVA RELIGIO, "This short book is among the very few important studies of one of the most interesting and outrageous sixties-generation American gurus. This book consists of two essays, both revised versions of articles that appeared in Lane's Exposing Cults: When the Skeptical Mind Confronts the Mystical (New York: Garland, 1994). The first is a hard-headed but fair-minded assessment of the way in which spiritual guides can deliver teaching that is morally and mystically elevated, yet which seems to help others more than the guides themselves, producing the phenomenon of crazy adepts and sane disciples. If this is an accurate description of Da Free John, he far from alone, and the article ought to be useful to generalists in the study of new religions. Scott Lowe's piece, basically an account of his own brief youthful stay with Jones' group in 1974, complements Lane's article with firsthand information of what the group was like in its early years. These two well-written essays make a substantive contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of the disciple-guru relationship in new religious movements." 1. Language: English.

Pacing Dakota is a collection of essays reflecting on the history and culture of the Great Plains of North America. The author, with more than 40 years as a working historian and regional author, transitions from the close confines of historical archives into the prairie landscapes of the northern plains. Pacing Dakota speaks with the mingled voices of scholarly historian, outdoor sportsman, culinary enthusiast, lifelong Lutheran, and prairie farm boy. The author prowls prairie churches, finds forgotten artifacts, and gathers cherished stories from Williston to Wahpeton and points beyond. He situates his encounters along the way into the canon of literary and historical writing on the prairies. In the end, he speaks for a generation committed to making a good life in this place. Awards2019 Independent Publishers Book Award Gold Medal Winner in Midwest - best regional nonfiction. 2019 Independent Press Award Winner in Western nonfiction. Praise for Pacing Dakota: "With these colorful and insightful stories from the northern plains, Thomas D. Isern proves again he deserves consideration with Wallace Stegner, Kathleen Norris, Hamlin Garland, and Willa Cather as one of our foremost celebrators of a sense of place. Having devoted more than four decades to his regional project, he brings together observations on everything from windmills, signs, pit silos, and lutefisk suppers to sod and rammed-earth houses, cast-iron grave markers, roads, and blizzard narratives. Readers will be the richer for it." (John E. Miller, author of numerous books on the Midwest and Great Plains, including, most recently, Democracy and the Informed Citizen: A South Dakota Perspective)"Pacing Dakota is the work of a consummate regional historian and firmly-rooted plainsman. The work is sensate, literate, socially rooted, and thoughtfully situated. It is a book to savor for the tastes an 1. Language: English. Narrator: Thomas D. Isern.

For the past 45 years I have been researching the history of Radhasoami, as founded by Shiv Dayal Singh in Agra, India, back in the mid part of the 19th century. I am particularly fascinated by the early days of the movement and how it evolved from a relatively small and obscure satsang to a world-wide faith with millions of adherents.I fondly remember my first book contract with Garland Publishers in New York and London in 1979 when Professor J. Gordon Melton asked me to produce an annotated bibliography on Radhasoami. I would spend hours at the University of California, Berkeley, and University of California, Los Angeles libraries trying my best to track down each and every book that mentioned Sant Mat, shabd yoga, or Radhasoami. In those pre-Internet days it was a romantic adventure, since one was never quite sure what one would discover.I was lucky to find texts that were hard to find and seldom read. Ironically, most of the earliest works, outside of the group’s own publications, were written by Christian missionaries who were not always objective or impartial. There are very few writings concerning Radhasoami from the latter part of the 19th century and the early part of the 20th century. Although the information they contain is sketchy and oftentimes inaccurate, they do provide an important historical glimpse into the early days of the movement.In this collection, I have included the writings of Max Müller, Hervey De Witt Griswold, John Nicol Farquhar, James Bissett Pratt, and J. Kennedy. Each author has provided us with an early interpretation of how Radhasoami developed and has also given us a summation of the group’s theology.This volume is the first in a series that the MSAC Philosophy Group plans to publish. Our hope is to make early Radhasoami literature - from books to articles to ephemera - more widely available for future scholarship and those interested in understanding more about the life and work 1.

Armed with vast resources, top-notch expertise, and a loyal network of allies around the globe, the Sisterhood will not rest until every wrong is made right. Through all their missions and adventures, the tightknit group of friends who make up the Sisterhood have learned one vital lesson: everybody has a weak spot. In the case of Yoko Wong's dear friend Garland Lee, the multimillion-selling performer known as America's beloved songbird, that weak spot was trusting her lawyer, Arthur Forrester. For years, he's taken advantage of her faith in him to amass a secret fortune. And now, in the deepest betrayal yet, he's dragged her into a lawsuit that could cost her home and everything she has left. The Sisterhood know they can't let that happen. Forrester has some of the country's top judges in his pocket, and a list of influential and ruthless friends - not to mention knowledge of all the ways the law can be corrupted to work in his favor.
