At present, while putting the finishing touches on this book, the general public seems to be undergoing a resurgence of interest in the psychedelic experience, highlighted by even popular mainstream writers such as Michael Pollan. While in general I see this as a very welcomed and positive development, my expectations run considerably short of the revolution in understanding hoped for by many involved in this endeavor. The reason for this is not however based upon the potential of psychedelics themselves, but on the irreconcilable differences between the mindset of "modern man" and the expanded consciousness accessible through these substances. We have come this way before... and if the psychedelic community is not more careful this time, there will likely be a re-run of the 1960's, in which the sensationalized media accounts of casualties sour public opinion, lawmakers harden their resolve with irrational legal status, and the legitimate research taking place, likely the only chance for a legitimate way forward, is shut down. While there is a growing amount of literature available from this research community I believe there is also something to be gained by a reader from entering into this world through the eyes of a troubled adolescent and then following this same person through the changes which followed. My main hope in sharing these experiences is that they may assist someone having already tried psychedelics, but also that a newcomer to this subject matter can gain some insight. The format of this book first details the actual experiences as they occurred, followed by a commentary which takes into account the mindset in which they had taken place. As the content of these experiences delve further and further into the subconscious, my mindset is changed considerably and the commentaries which follow are forced to adopt a more speculative posture. That the ontological mechanics of the psychedelic experience itself align up so well with eastern philosophical belief systems can be no mere coincidence. And when the descriptions from the most recent discoveries in sub-atomic physics sound like the ramblings of a Hindu philosopher... one should take notice. There is something going on here, something which I believe deserves more attention. What I explore in these following chapters is one of the oldest mysteries known to humankind, a place tightly guarded by superstition, cultural identity and organized religion; a place which defies any known language to accurately describe: our inner world.

While engaging for the general reader thanks to its candid narrative of a life’s path along an unusual career that took its author to remarkable destinations in Eurasia, this book will be especially welcome to specialists in the history of the Soviet Union/Russia during the last quarter of the 20th century because of its wealth of diary entries constituting two-thirds of the text. These capture the mindset of the author and his interlocutors at all levels of society. The book also will be useful to business school students and those embarking on careers in Emerging Markets, where the challenges of maintaining one’s footing can be formidable and where the fastest moving objects in FMCG companies may be the managers themselves. For those who believe that disruptive technologies are something new, the author’s discussion of his choices among industries for employment or to perform consultancy will be enlightening.

In this thoughtful book, Gary Fine explores how Americans attempt to give meaning to the natural world that surrounds them. Although nature has often been treated as an unproblematic reality, Fine suggests that the meanings we assign to the natural environment are culturally grounded. In other words, there is no nature separate from culture. He calls this process of cultural construction and interpretation, naturework. Of course, there is no denying the biological reality of trees, mountains, earthquakes, and hurricanes, but, he argues, they must be interpreted to be made meaningful. Fine supports this claim by examining the fascinating world of mushrooming. Based on three years of field research with mushroomers at local and national forays, Morel Tales highlights the extensive range of meanings that mushrooms have for mushroomers. Fine details how mushroomers talk about their finds--turning their experiences into fish stories (the one that got away), war stories, and treasure tales; how mushroomers routinely joke about dying from or killing others with misidentified mushrooms, and how this dark humor contributes to the sense of community among collectors. He also describes the sometimes friendly, sometimes tense relations between amateur mushroom collectors and professional mycologists. Fine extends his argument to show that the elaboration of cultural meanings found among mushroom collectors is equally applicable to birders, butterfly collectors, rock hounds, and other naturalists.

From Pulitzer Prize–winning poet Maxine Kumin comes a timeless memoir of life, love, and poetry. Maxine Kumin left an unrivaled legacy as a pioneering poet and feminist. The Pawnbroker’s Daughter charts her journey from a childhood in a Jewish community in Depression-era Philadelphia, where Kumin’s father was a pawnbroker, to Radcliffe College, where she comes into her own as an intellectual and meets the soldier-turned-Los Alamos scientist who would become her husband; to her metamorphosis from a poet of “light verse” to a “poet of witness”; to her farm in rural New England, the subject and setting of much of her later work. Against all odds, Kumin channels her dissatisfaction with the life that is expected of her as a wife and a mother into her work as a feminist and one of the most renowned and remembered twentieth-century American poets.

Part memoir of life in Taiwan, part love story—a beautifully told account of China’s brilliant cuisines…with recipes. At the Chinese Table describes in vivid detail how, during the 1970s and ’80s, celebrated cookbook writer and illustrator Carolyn Phillips crosses China’s endless cultural and linguistic chasms and falls in love. During her second year in Taipei, she meets scholar and epicurean J. H. Huang, who nourishes her intellectually over luscious meals from every part of China. And then, before she knows it, Carolyn finds herself the unwelcome candidate for eldest daughter-in-law in a traditional Chinese family. This warm, refreshingly candid memoir is a coming-of-age story set against a background of the Chinese diaspora and a family whose ancestry is intricately intertwined with that of their native land. Carolyn’s reticent father-in-law—a World War II fighter pilot and hero—eventually embraces her presence by showing her how to re-create centuries-old Hakka dishes from family recipes. In the meantime, she brushes up on the classic cuisines of the North in an attempt to win over J. H.’s imperious mother, whose father had been a warlord’s lieutenant. Fortunately for J. H. and Carolyn, the tense early days of their relationship blossom into another kind of cultural and historical education as Carolyn masters both the language and many of China’s extraordinary cuisines. With illustrations and twenty-two recipes, At the Chinese Table is a culinary adventure like no other that captures the diversity of China’s cuisines, from the pen of a world-class scholar and gourmet.

Left behind by his fleeing family, Alfie is separated from all he holds dear. He sets out on a journey of survival and discovery--as agonizing loneliness, witnessed brutalities, and numbing hunger all determine to break Alfie’s faith in those around him. Alfie must navigate the many minefields, real and psychological, that lurk before him in his uncertain future and behind him in his troubled past. Even upon Alfie’s eventual escape to America, the very idea of family is thrown into question, as long buried secrets are revealed.Throughout this story of love and loyalty, war and renewal, betrayal and trust, Alfie finds that the most difficult road he faces is the beleaguered path of his own memories.

Hot on the heels of More Imaginative Than Ordinary Speech: The Poetry of Cat Ellington comes a riveting and remarkably uplifting compilation of free verse that was erected to witness the uncommon life of its distinctive authorship in the captivating art of Gogyohka poetry. Introducing Memoirs in Gogyohka, an alluring, albeit double-edged, biographical account inspired by the diaries of Cat Ellington. Highlighting a selected assemblage of Ellington’s random diary entries from the 1980s to the present, Memoirs in Gogyohka provides the reader with a first-hand look into the journals of one of the most compelling women in the arts as it strolls through the courtyards of her many life experiences, including interracial dating, family turmoil, inner-city living, Black-on-Black crime, eroticism, lesbianism, anti-feminism, and much more. Flanked by Cat Ellington’s Prologues and Epilogues, the works of Gogyohka featured on these elegantly decorated pages include “The Ol’ Double Standard,” “He Called Me ‘Baby Golden’,” “A Cut Through Bone and Marrow,” “The Revelers,” “How to Love a White Man,” “Right Back Atcha,” “The Iceman,” “She Flew In On Her Broom,” “The Bitch Called Karma,” “Amazon Women on the Earth,” “Snake Eyes,” “Lying and Denying,” “Single Black Female,” "Serenaded by Kenny G," and many, many more. Hardly a depiction for the faint-hearted, Memoirs in Gogyohka packs a one-two punch of emotions as it proudly carries the history of its author on the broad shoulders of intrigue, amusement, insight, and admiration, while daring to prove the blessedness of her distinction where the written word is to be regarded. Poetry by Cat Ellington. Unconventional beauty.

The memoirs of Chevalier Rafael de Weryha-Wysoczański, a Polish nobleman whose nobility dates back to the 15th century. Chevalier Rafael Hugo Maria de Weryha-Wysoczański-Pietrusiewicz was born in Poland in 1975 of diverse European ancestry and is the son and heir of the sculptor John ‘Jan’, 6th Chevalier de Weryha-Wysoczański-Pietrusiewicz. In a series of vignettes, he looks at his life, beginning with his family history, then birth and childhood in Poland after which he fled Communist Poland as a six-year-old boy and was stranded in the spheres of upper class life of Western Europe. He was educated at the elite Magdalene College, Cambridge and the University of Hamburg from which he holds a doctorate in garden history. It was in his late twenties that he lived the life of a playboy, standing in a long line of womanisers in his family. He details his time at Cambridge, as well as his time as a member of the Cresta Club in St. Moritz regarded as the best club in the world, as Delegate to the European Commission of the Nobility in Paris, and as a Sotheby’s representative. The book also tells of the many international balls he either organised or attended. A Chevalier from Poland is a modest but highly attractive book, dotted with the theme of a man who has always remained a Polish nobleman. A truly fascinating memoir, this book will appeal to those interested in Poland, nobility and European history.
