              Aikido is the Way of Peace, a martial art aimed at harmonizing body and spirit with the natural forces of the universe. Developed in the late 1920s by martial artist and spiritual leader Morihei Ueshiba, Aikido is unique among martial arts for its emphasis on peace and philosophi...cal and spiritual development. Though Aikido is a fighting system, its goal is not destruction and injury, but rather protection and harmony for all parties involved in the struggle. Those who seek to compete and better one another are making a terrible mistake, says Morihei, The real Way of a Warrior is to prevent such slaughter -- it is the Art of Peace, the power of love. In Secrets of Aikido, John Stevens -- esteemed Aikido instructor and author of over 30 books on Aikido and its founder) -- delves into the hidden teachings and deep, multi-dimensional spiritual wisdom offered by this unique martial art. Divided into two broad sections on The Mysteries of Aikido and The Practice of Aikido, this book explores, Practices for the purification of mind and bodyThe tantric dimensions of Aikido, unifying masculine and feminine The Aikido science of sound and how it parallels the use of mantras and similar practices in other spiritual disciplinesBreathing techniques for calming the spirit and returning to the source of life The six pillars of Aikido: physical techniques based on spiritual principles that link us to a higher realm of being For beginners and seasoned practitioners alike, Secrets of Aikido presents honest and inspirational insight into a harmonious and peaceful way of life. John Stevens lived in Japan for 35 years, where he was a professor of Buddhist studies at Tohoku Fukushi University in Sendai. A widely respected translator, ordained Buddhist priest, curator of several major exhibitions of Zen art, and an aikido instructor, he has authored more than thirty books and is one of the foremost Western experts on aikido, holding a ranking of 7th dan Aikikai.

              Rainer Maria Rilke's poetry offers a rare combination of insight, beauty, and accessibility that has delighted readers for generations. Beloved for its unique lyrical style and musical language, his work stands as some of the most remarkable poetry of the past one hundred years. ...In Praise of Mortality is an artfully curated selection of poems from Sonnets to Orpheus and Duino Elegies that investigate the emotional and psychological impact of the industrial revolution, and meditate on themes of impermanence and the steady passage of time. Barrows, an award-winning poet herself, and Macy, a well-known spiritual teacher, bring to their translations a striking sensitivity to the subtle currents of the work, approaching the poems with a fresh perspective that highlights the delicacy of their craft and beauty. With a deep reverence for nature and a singular ability to embody the tenuous connection between the spiritual and material, Rilke's sonnets and elegies are a thoughtful antidote to the distractions, noise, and ever-increasing pace of the modern world.

              In Sherman: A History of the American Medium Tank, R. P. Hunnicutt provides the comprehensive history of the technological evolution that led to the production of Sherman M4 in 1942 and its development, variants, and modifications. Although the Sherman was part of the US pre-war ...development program, its adaptability to conditions on the front led to extensive British innovations drawn from battle experience. As WWII raged on, these modifications transformed the Sherman into a highly specialized workhorse of the Anglo-American armored forces. Taking full advantage of the ease with which the Sherman absorbed modifications, British forces adapted Shermans as minesweepers, amphibious assault float tanks, bulldozers, flame throwers, CDL tanks for nighttime attacks, carriages for tank destroyers and self-propelled artillery, among other uses. The Sherman, the epitome of American prowess in mass production, played an integral role in infantry support and fought in every major theater of operation in WWII. Due to its reliability, adaptability, and sheer strength in numbers, the Sherman M4 served with unmatched longevity, and Hunnicutt touches upon the wide range of combat conditions that the M4 performed under, in addition to its post-WWII activity. Featuring over a thousand photos from the National Archives, diagrams, and detailed specifications, Hunnicutt's Sherman remains the definitive history of M4 for the military historian, professional soldier, and tank restorer. 1,368 black & white photos, 12 color plates Richard Pearce Hunnicutt (1926-2011) enlisted in the 7th Infantry Division in 1944 and in 1945 was promoted to sergeant and awarded the Silver Star for his heroic actions. After WWII, Hunnicutt earned a Masters in engineering from Stanford University under the GI Bill. In addition to being one of the most respected metallurgists in California, Hunnicutt wrote the definitive 10-volume history of the development and employment of American armored vehicles. As a tank
