Lord Carling is one of the great and the good now, but once he was just George Carling, a privileged young idealist who wrote a letter to the Soviet Embassy to say how much he admired the way the Russians were resisting the Nazis. And later he was an intelligence officer for the SIS. A very good officer with very accurate information about the Soviet Union and a cordial relationship with the Americans. Now, the whisper has gone round that Carling's information was too good to be honest. That he was too close to Philby and the other legendary traitors of his era and that he might have been working for the wrong people. So SIS sends Tim Mathews to find out what Carling has to say about his past and his friends. Mathews is surprised when Carling talks candidly about how he found information, friendship and even love on the other side of the Berlin Wall in the days when the Cold War very nearly became World War III. Carling's real secrets are deeper and more astonishing. For he is the man who knows about Kim Philby's last great coup: the ultimate deception of the Cold War.

She has done this by enabling them build a bridge across the two worlds - through the loving and caring messages of her son Karl who dwells in the spiritual realms. Nan has thus been a shining beacon to thousands of people who have, with the Master's Grace, and the caring intervention of Karl, found their own answers and way out of sorrow and pain. Beyond the Silence is her continuing account of people from all walks of life who are entering into His ever-growing, loving fold. She is the author of the best-selling book Sounds of Silence, and its sequel Listening to the Silence. About the Author At one time, Nan Umrigar had absolutely no inclinations towards spirituality. But all that changed with the untimely death of her son Karl, a champion jockey. During a long period of grieving, Nan, as fate would have it, met some people who communicated with their loved ones in the spirit world. Soon, she also started communicating with her lost son and began to receive 'messages' from him that would alter the course of her life forever. Initially, while she felt exhilarated, she could not help but question this phenomenon. Was she fantasizing, imagining things or just indulging in wishful thinking? Was there really a higher energy force- angels, guides, guardians and a God? As Nan delved deeper, building a bridge across two worlds, she decided to share her experience with others. This led her to writing a book in which she detailed how Karl showed her the way out of grief towards happiness, and how she came to believe in Meher Baba- her sons Spiritual Master. With her insights and her immovable faith, Nan has helped many people deal with the loss of their loved ones. "With Baba's help" she says, "many hearts have been healed." And, many lives have undergone a change for the better.
Behind the Silence is the first in-depth work in any language to explore the diverse perspectives of mainland Chinese regarding induced abortion and fetal life in the context of the world's most ambitious and intrusive family planning program. Through his investigation of public silence, official standpoints, forgotten controversies from the imperial era, popular opinions, women's personal stories, doctors' narratives, and the problem of coerced abortion, Nie Jing-Bao brings to light a surprising range of beliefs concerning fetal life and the morality of abortion, yet finds overall an acceptance of national population policies. China's internal plurality, the author argues, must be taken seriously if the West is to open a fruitful cross-cultural dialogue. Visit our website for sample chapters!
