In this timely and urgent work, Hans Kung reminds us: - Every minute, the nations of the world spend 1.8 million dollars on military armaments; - Every hour, 1500 children die of hunger-related causes; - Every week during the 1980s, more people were detained, tortured, assassinated, made refugee, or in other ways violated by acts of repressive regimes than at any other time in history; - Every month, the world's economic system adds over 7.5 billion dollars to the catastrophically unbearable debt burden of more than 1.5 trillion dollars now resting on the shoulders of Third World peoples; - Every year, an area of tropical forest three-quarters the size of Korea is destroyed and lost; - Every decade, if present global warming trends continue, the temperature of the earth's atmosphere could rise dramatically with a resultant rise in sea levels that would have disastrous consequences, particularly for coastal areas of all the earth's land masses. In 'Global Responsibility', the author offers important new approaches and concludes that: - There can be no peace among the nations without peace among the religions. - There can be no peace among the religions without dialogue between the religions. - There can be no ongoing human society without a global ethic.

spacer In these four remarkable lectures, Rudolf Steiner contends that Christ has been working on humanitys behalf since the very beginnings of its existence, long before the inception of the Christian religion. Steiner indicates how - in both the ancient Mystery schools and in the miraculous events depicted in the Old Testament - the guiding hand of Christ shaped and developed peoples cognition. The ultimate divine intervention took place in the incarnation of Christ in human form - God in man - which culminated in the Mystery of Golgotha. Through this mighty event, opportunity is given for every soul to develop immortal individuality and consciousness of self. Steiner clarifies the difficult concepts of sin, guilt and karma, and explains the meaning of forgiveness of sins and resurrection of the body. Looking forward to future great periods of evolution, he speaks of the separation of humanity into two races of good and evil, and describes how Christ will continue to work in this critical time of human development.

The idea behind this book is to provide the progressive guitarist with a comprehensive overview of chordal structures on the guitar fingerboard. Starting with triads, then working through 7th and 9th chords and further extensions, chord substitution relationships and practical examples over standard chord progression, the book presents a chordal concept based on logic rather than just memorized shapes, making it easier for today's guitarists to understand the complex chordal structures used in contemporary jazz.
