The 2012 Story; The Myths, Fallacies, and Truth Behind the Most Intriguing Date in History
Jenkins, John Major,
ISBN: 1585427667
Tarcher, New York, 2009. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Very Good Condition/Very Good. First Edition. On December 21, 2012, the Mesoamerican Long Count calendar, a 5,125-year cycle calendar system pioneered by the Maya, will come to an end. At the same time, the earth, the sun, and the centre of the galaxy will come together in an extremely rare cosmic alignment. More and more people believe that the world as we know it will experience a transformation in 2012, but few are aware of the complete history or significance of the date. John Major Jenkins, among the most authoritative voices of the 2012 movement, has written a definitive explanation of one of the most thought-provoking phenomena of our time. Drawing from his own groundbreaking research (including his involvement in the modern reconstruction of Mayan 2012 cosmology) and more than two decades of extensive study of Mayan culture, Jenkins has created the crucial guide to understanding the story of 2012--an essential overview of the history, theory, cultures, and personalities that have brought this extraordinary idea into modern awareness. Jenkins provides illuminating answers to some of the most-asked questions about 2012, including: - How did the early Maya devise the calendar that gives us the cycle ending in 2012, and how does it work? - How did the calendar come to be rediscovered and reconstructed in our era? - What controversies and intrigues surround the topic, and what do scholars and researchers have to say about them? - How can we cut through all the noise about 2012 and gain true wisdom from the Mayan teachings about this moment? – dust jacket blurb The book is 2nd hand, it does not appear to have been read. It is illustrated with some drawings and photographs within the text. Size: 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall. 496 pages. Please refer to accompanying picture (s). Quantity Available: 1.

In Search Of Lost Gods : A Guide to British Folklore

ISBN: 0714820261
Phaidon, United Kingdom, 1979. First Edition
 Hardcover Hardcover. Good Condition/Good. First Edition. ""The sight of people performing actions that seem superficially strange prompts an inquiry into not only what they are doing but why. In the context of folklore the participants often do not know the answer. They are repeating a ritual inherited from generations of ancestors, & often the explanations they give are garbled. By probing deep, however, it is usually possible to discover some grain of logic behind what may seem to be absurd behaviour or belief. Civilization tends to be a rather thin veneer concealing a mass of instincts & atavistic memories...A student of folklore encounters a number of strata of religious beliefs & practices associated with a succession of invaders..., all overlying a basic animism. A constant figure in ancient mythology was the Earth Mother, still remembered in the Corn Goddess of Kern Baby, whose image in straw is fashioned to celebrate the climax of harvest...In this book, the distinguished author of a number of volumes on folklore, surveying the field, attempts to inspire readers to look further for themselves, confident that in the quest they will arrive at a deeper understanding of human behaviour."
