William Sharp (1855-1905) was a prolific writer; friend and confidant to the literati of the day; an active member of the occult world of the late Victorian period; and a man who spent his life cloaked in layers of secrets - the most important being that he was the pen behind the writings of the mysterious Fiona Macleod. He kept her true identity a closely guarded secret. Many famous people - W.B. Yeats, "AE", MacGregor Mathers, Dante Gabriel Rossetti - were involved in Sharp's short life; he was a member of the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn and Yeats' secret Celtic Mystical Order; and he and Fiona Macleod were involved with the mysterious Dr. Goodchild whose ancient bowl was proclaimed by many to be the Holy Grail. But the enduring legacy of these two fascinating writers is the wealth of Faery magical lore contained in the writings of Fiona Macleod. For the first time this book reveals previously unknown secrets from the life of William Sharp and shows clearly how to recover the Faery lore contained in Fiona Macleod's literary output. These writings are not only about the Realm of Faery, they are the first authentic first-hand accounts from the Realm of Faery, revealing previously unknown Faery gods and goddesses, Faery belief, lore and magic. The Little Book of the Great Enchantment adds significantly to the corpus of serious writings on this greatly misunderstood subject.

With a view that behavioralism has distorted perceptions of black political activity, Hanes Walton, Jr., here reformulates the assumptions of behavioralism to arrive at a more realistic understanding of the political actions of black Americans. Considering the cultural and historical events that have shaped black lives, Walton examines voting patterns, socialization, and the development of political opinion. his analysis of leadership includes not only legislative and judicial leaders, but also leaders of those organizations so influential in black political culture: civil rights, churches, and grassroots organizations. Whether he looks at how local politics have changed through the years of civil rights action or how blacks' ideas on foreign policy have developed, Walton provides a long-needed reassessment of the role of black participation in American politics.

The Little Book is based on a Bible verse in Revelation that tells of an angel commanding the prophet John to eat a little book that would be sweet in his mouth and bitter in his belly. The major issues of the liberal agenda are of the same nature. They include atheism, feminism, homosexuality, animal rights, environmentalism, education, government, and, worst of all, abortion. These issues are presented in a feel-good way, sweet as honey, but always turn to bitterness and are quickly forgotten by the liberal presenters and media cheerleaders. For many years the expansion of liberalism has been a mystery, but a study of the scriptures has revealed how that thinking has overridden common sense. It is the authors conviction that the chief perpetrator of these issues is Satan who has blinded the minds of many of our citizens, enabling the ungodly liberal activists to force their evil positions on our whole country. Its a perfect way for the devil, in his war against GOD, to increase the alienation of man from GOD. The BIBLE shines a spiritual light on their deeds, exposing them for what they are. Through GODS dealings with Old Testament Israel, we can easily see what HIS response is to a nation that rejects HIM and follows a secular path in the pursuit of self satisfaction and self glorification. Since GOD changes not, our concern should be HIS response to our current humanistic leanings and ungodly desires. Without a national repentance, is there an apocalyptic event in store for America?
