Title: Puppets of Faith
Author: BS Murthy
The sublimity of Muhammad's preachings in Mecca and the severity of his sermons in Medina make Islam a Janus-faced faith that forever bedevels the mind of the Musalmans.
When a bunch of apparently non-practicing Musalmans headed by Mohamed Atta launched that fifayeen attack on New York's World Trade Centre that Sep 11, the non-Muslim world, by then familiar with the ways of the Islamic terrorism, was at a loss to fathom the unthinkable source of that unexpected means of the new Islamist scourge.
This novel nonfiction probes the mind of the Musalmans, afflicted by the Islamic psyche shaped by the proclivities of their prophet, vicissitudes of his life, attitudes of his detractors, and the credulity of the Umma, with Thomas A. Harris's 'I'm Ok - You're Ok' scanner, to sketch the anatomy of Islam that explains the Atta phenomenon.
Also examined herein is how the Hindu sanatana dharma came to survive in India that is in spite of the onslaught on it, first by Islam and then by the Christianity, for over a millennium.

Title: The Hidden Realm of God: The Historical Jesus and His Healing Philosophy
Author: James Gaither

There are also sections exploring the most probable biography of Jesus, based upon modern scholarship.

Author: Ruby Side Thompson
Ruby Side Thompson and ordinary woman living in London during World War ll. This diary is volume ! in series of 4. It encompass's 1939 and 1840. It is her diary written in her own words and is authentic.
This is important documentation and will have appeal to those who are interested in the effect war has on the average citizen.
"Friday 9-1-1939 - War started today. After another week of lies and duplicity, Hitler launched into actual warfare this morning."
So begins the diary of my great grandmother Ruby Side Thompson, a middle aged Londoner in a very dissatisying marriage who lived through the blitz and recorded it in daily entries in her diary. She writes about the horrors and bombings and raids that occured every day. Her diary was a place to release her frustrations both with the war and her marriage.
This is very heady stuff for history buffs to read what happened written by someone actually there. Her point of view is often politically incorrect and meant for just herself.

Author: Lehel Vandor
On 16 December 1989, in the Transylvanian city of Timisoara, an anti-dictatorship revolution was started by a Hungarian ethnic priest. This, just a few days later, has ended Ceausescu's communist regime in Romania.
The book is a memoir of a Transylvanian Hungarian minority child, who was growing up during that dictatorship and experienced the Kafka-esque society first hand. It is also a memoir of the years that followed the 1989 Revolution, including an ethnic pogrom organised in his hometown by the Romanian extreme right movement.
It is also an analysis of the post-revolution period, which swapped communism with democracy, religion with greed, external threats with internal tensions, absolute power with surreal levels of corruption, one dread with many fears.
The country is still struggling with the legacy of the totalian decades, with the regime's echoes, whereby former figures of the regime still occupy key positions in public and political life.
Having relocated to the United Kingdom after his University studies, Lehel had the opportunity to witness remarkably similar distortions of political messages during the so-called War on Terror.
