'The overall purpose of human communication is - or should be - reconciliation. It should ultimately serve to lower or remove the walls of misunderstanding which unduly separate us human beings, one from another...' Although we have developed the technology to make communication more efficent and to bring people closer together, we have failed to use it to build a true global community. Dr M. Scott Peck believes that if we are to prevent civilization destroying itself, we must urgently rebuild on all levels, local, national and international and that is the first step to spiritual survival. In this radical and challenging book, he describes how the communities work, how group action can be developed on the principles of tolerance and love, and how we can start to transform world society into a true community.

Out-of-work reporter Mallory Aikins dreams of a Prince Charming who will whisk her away from her family's poverty to his mansion on the hill. Instead, she's stranded in the tiny town of Sagebrush, watching her chance at a new start in Palm Springs evaporate in the New Mexico heat. But her reporter's curiosity is piqued by sexy, mysterious, motorcycle-riding sheriff Drummond Wolfe. Mallory is determined to find out his secret, even if it threatens the passion that's beginning to sizzle between them. Heir to a Gulf Coast oil fortune, Drum wants nothing to do with his wealthy family or the annoying, infuriating, and captivating woman he rescued from the side of the road. He likes his quiet and peaceful life, but Mallory could turn his world upside down. In the process of running away from who they are, they're destined to run right into each other.

Volunteering and voluntary organizations have become increasingly important in British social and political life but at a cost. Greater prominence has led to a narrow and distorted view of what voluntary action involves and how it is undertaken. This book reasserts the case for a broader view of voluntarism as a unique set of autonomous activities.

In THE BEAT OF A DIFFERENT DRUM, More Stories from the Hunter-Gatherer Way, the author explores the mysteries of the Bronze Age; stone circles; stone rows; evolution and the reason for the planet. As well as sharing many "a-ha!" moments whilst gathering wild food on the "Ring of the Wild Food Year" migration route. Down to earth philosophy and female intuition make this a highly original account of journeys beyond the limits of every day thinking. Having walked around the world as a young woman, and been taught by Aborigines, Bushmen, Pygmies and North American Indians, Ffyona Campbell's unique perspective delighted readers in her last book. THE HUNTER-GATHERER WAY, Putting Back the Apple, was an unusual look at Stonehenge; the Druids; the Iron Age; the sword in the stone; and Adam and Eve. The author also pieced together an annual migration route we took as hunter-gatherers.
