              This book examines Scientology, specifically in the Free Zone (Scientology outside the institutional Church of Scientology), as an example of a developing and fluid religion, and explores issues of boundaries and fluidity in the contemporary religious landscape. Whilst much of co...ntemporary scholarship focuses on the breakdown of top-down institutional religion, this study explores modern issues surrounding fluid forms of minority religions, by using the Scientologist practice of 'auditing' to consider the impact of how Scientologists engage with their practices, and the objects and means with which they do it. By acting as a framework for the study of similar movements formed in recent decades, this book allows scholars of religion to explore how contemporary religion can simultaneously demonstrate both fluid and solid elements and holds relevance for the wider academic study of religions, asking and addressing questions surrounding how minority movements should be approached in future studies.

              When Richard Hayes, a gifted polymath and cryptographer, was drafted by Irish intelligence services to track the movements of a prolific Nazi spy, Hermann Goertz, it set in motion one of the most remarkable episodes in Irish history. What followed was a high-stakes game of cat an...d mouse that would wind its way through the capital and its suburbs, reverberate through the corridors of power, test the sympathies of those in high society,and even expand to jeopardise the Allied war effort. Codebreaker is a riveting and deeply researched account of an extraordinary period of history - when Dublin became a hotbed of Nazi intrigue and the fate of an independent Ireland settled on the shoulders of an unassuming employee of the National Library.

              In view of the current rhetoric surrounding the global migrant crisis - with politicians comparing refugees with animals and media reports warning of migrants swarming like insects or trespassing like wolves - this timely study explores the cultural origins of the language and im...agery of dehumanization. Situated at the junction of literature, politics, and ecocriticism, Wolves at the Door traces the history of the wolf metaphor in discussions of race, gender, colonialism, fascism, and ecology. How have 'Gypsies', Jews, Native Americans but also 'wayward' women been 'wolfed' in literature and politics? How has the wolf myth been exploited by Hitler, Mussolini and Turkish ultra-nationalism? How do right-wing politicians today exploit the reappearance of wolves in Central Europe in the context of the migration discourse? And while their reintroduction in places like Yellowstone has fuelled heated debates, what is the wolf's role in ecological rewilding and for the restoration of biodiversity? In today's fraught political climate, Wolves at the Door alerts readers to the links between stereotypical images, their cultural history, and their political consequences. It raises awareness about xenophobia and the dangers of nationalist idolatry, but also highlights how literature and the visual arts employ the wolf myth for alternative messages of tolerance and cultural diversity.

              The incredible story of the greatest female spy in history, from one of Britain's most acclaimed historians - available for pre-order now In a quiet English village in 1942, an elegant housewife emerged from her cottage to go on her usual bike ride. A devoted wife and mother-of-t...hree, the woman known to her neighbours as Mrs Burton seemed to epitomise rural British domesticity. However, rather than pedalling towards the shops with her ration book, she was racing through the Oxfordshire countryside to gather scientific intelligence from one of the country's most brilliant nuclear physicists. Secrets that she would transmit to Soviet intelligence headquarters via the radio transmitter she was hiding in her outdoor privy. Far from a British housewife, 'Mrs Burton' - born Ursula Kuczynski, and codenamed 'Sonya' - was a German Jew, a dedicated communist, a colonel in Russia's Red Army, and a highly-trained spy. From planning an assassination attempt on Hitler in Switzerland, to spying on the Japanese in Manchuria, and helping the Soviet Union build the atom bomb, Sonya conducted some of the most dangerous espionage operations of the twentieth century. Her story has never been told - until now. Agent Sonya is the exhilarating account of one woman's life; a life that encompasses the rise and fall of communism itself, and altered the course of history. 'Macintyre does true-life espionage better than anyone else' John Preston

              When was the last time that reading the news made you feel good? Dear Reader, I know what you're thinking, is it some kind of macabre joke? Has she been in a coma? How can Ruby Wax write a book about good news when the world is facing the worst disaster since the Plague? Let me e...xplain. I began writing in 2018, back when the world's worries were somewhat different. Climate change, greedy bankers, exam results, crap politicians, mental health: these are still HUGE ISSUES, but even the ancient soothsayers reading pig entrails couldn't have predicted this. This is my new mission: to share the green shoots of hope peeping through the soil of civilization. Literacy is at an all-time high, world-hunger is likely to be eradicated this century, technological improvements are saving lives - just to scratch the surface. I've talked to everyone from leaders to scientists to tech geniuses. I've done the research and practiced what I preach. And my conclusion? Behind the clouds, the sun still shines. So here's to the shoots - may they become a blueprint for how the world can shift for the good. Hopefully we'll learn from them. Love, Ruby

              Long after she's supposed to be dead, a woman with aggressive pancreatic cancer finds herself cured. A teenage girl suddenly and unexpectedly overcomes the cerebral palsy she's had since birth. An 85-year-old man stuns doctors when his CT scan shows that the tumours on his kidney...s have inexplicably vanished. These are cases of 'spontaneous remission' or, what most people call 'medical miracles': incredible testaments of just what the human body is capable of in extremis. Using his discoveries from these 'Olympians of healing', Harvard physician and psychiatrist Dr Jeff Rediger offers clear, practical advice on how we can improve our health, from diet and relaxation to a positive mindset when facing illness. Cured is a fascinating and insightful book about how we can harness our body's natural resilience to take control of our health.
