This remarkable book grew out of a conference headed by Ren Gunon, the sinologist Ren Grousset, and the neo-Thomist Jacques Maritain on questions raised by Ferdinand Ossendowski's thrilling account in his Men, Beast and Gods of an escape through Central Asia, during which he foils enemies and encounters shamans and Mongolian lamas, whose marvels he describes. The book caused a great sensation, especially the closing chapters, where Ossendowski recounts legends allegedly entrusted to him concerning the 'King of the World' and his subterranean kingdom Agarttha. The present book, one of Gunon's most controversial, was written in response to this conference and develops the theme of the King of the World from the point of view of traditional metaphysics. Chapters include: Western Ideas about Agarttha; Shekinah and Metatron; The Three Supreme Functions; Symbolism of the Grail; Melki-Tsedeq; Luz: Abode of Immortality; The Supreme Center concealed during the Kali-Yuga; and The Omphalos and Sacred Stones .

Joan Mark offers an interpretive biography of Patrick Tracy Lowell Putnam (1904–53), who spent twenty-five years living among the Bambuti pygmies of the Ituri Forest in what is now Zaire. On the Epulu River he constructed Camp Putnam as a harmonious multiracial community. He modeled his camp on the “dude ranches” of the American West, taking in paying guests while running a medical clinic and occasionally offering legal aid to the local people, and assumed the role of intermediary between locals and visitors, including Colin M. Turnbull, author of the classic Forest People. Mark describes Putnam’s mercurial relations with family and with his African and American wives—and follows him to his sad and violent end. She places Patrick Putnam within the context of three different anthropological traditions and examines his contribution as an expert on pygmies.

Louis XIV wanted to conquer time and space - to push the borders of France which he inherited out into Flanders, Burgundy and Alsace, and beyond, to expand French dominion in the Americas and the East, to win what he called 'the exquisite praises of history' through conquests and to create a great palace which would surpass all others and secure his immortality. He became the epitome and exemplar of monarchy, the king all his contemporaries and successors imitated, envied, or fought against. King of the World is a magnificent and startlingly insightful account of the man who dominated the seventeenth century more than any other. To what extent did Louis have absolute power, or was decision-making in the hands of ministers and mistresses? How much of the extravagance of Versailles was for show, and how far was Louis himself the show? How could such a civilized man commit so many acts of barbarism? How effective was he as a ruler and a general? Did he leave his country stronger or weaker than it was before? Mansel offers original and persuasive answers to these questions, and weaves a brilliant tapestry of the life of one of the most compelling figures in European history.

This book, written in simple English, is targeted at everyone that can readthe scholarly, not-so-scholarly, and inquisitive-minded, persons. It should whet the appetite of the inquisitive minded, causing them to conduct further researches into numerous other aspects of the person and work of Jesus Christ. The book considers the sinfulness of mankind from his fall through the coming of the Savior, noting that sin is not the exclusive reserve of any particular people but of the whole of mankind. And the salvation that the gracious, almighty God offers through Jesus Christ alone is also to not just a few, but all who believe in Jesus Christ. Jesus Christ is Prophet, Priest, and King. He is also Savior/Redeemer and Judge. He is Creator of the universe and the Mediator between God and man. There were prophets, but Jesus is the Son of God. There were priests and high priests who had to enter Gods presence in the holiest place with blood of an animal in their hands. But Jesus Christ is the Everlasting High Priest, who entered the presence of God with His own unblemished blood once for all and remains with God the Father in heaven, pleading our cause. There were/are kings also. But Jesus Christ is the King of kings and Lord of lords. There were, and are, judges. But Jesus Christ is the Righteous Judge that will on behalf of God the Father judge the living and the dead without favoritism or sentiments. He alone is the Savior and Redeemer of mankind. Jesus Christ shall soon return to set up his millennial kingdom on earth.
