This book is designed to convince the healthy and scientific-minded sceptic that hand analysis is a science worthy of serious consideration. The laws of scientific hand analysis are presented here in a very simple manner, and are amply illustrated by diagrams. This book is also intended for those who do not have the faintest concept of what hand analysis or astrology is all about, so that no previous knowledge is required for its understanding. At the same time the subject of hand analysis has been comprehensively emphasized. As such this book will be of interest to professional astrologers. In many Eastern countries leading astrologers have a good knowledge of hand analysis. Where the horoscope does not give clear guidance on a particular aspect, they consult the palms in order to obtain clarification. The ideas put forward in this book are based on the Indian, Western and Egyptian schools of hand analysis, although the Indian system has been used the most. The scientific rationale be-hind the wearing of particular gems in order to ward off evil planetary influences is also succinctly described. Above all, this is meant to be an eminently straightforward and practical work. The sceptic has only to study his own palms to be pleasantly surprised at how accurately hand analysis reveals his own particular case.

In Thinking and Destiny, something new, although older than time, is now made known to the world--about Consciousness. The information is largely about the makeup of the human, where man comes from, what becomes of him; it explains what thinking is; it tells how a thought is created, and how thoughts are exteriorized into acts, objects and events, and how they make his destiny. Destiny is thus shown to be self-determined by thinking; and the process of re-existence and the after-death states are told in detail. A single reading of any one chapter of Thinking and Destiny brings rich rewards in new understanding of life`s puzzling mysteries. To read the entire book is to come nearer to knowledge of one`s destiny and how to shape it than is possible through study of anything previously written in the English language. Both the casually curious glancer at books and the most avid seeker for knowledge will be intrigued by the index, which lists more than 400 subjects in Thinking and Destiny, and by the fifteen chapter headings in the Table of Contents, which identify the 156 sections. The Foreword contains the only pages in which Mr. Percival uses the first personal pronoun. Here he relates some of the amazing experiences through which he was able to grasp the knowledge he transmits, and to acquire the ability to do so.

'Natural Resources: Neither Course nor Destiny' brings together a variety of analytical perspectives, ranging from econometric analyses of economic growth to historical studies of successful development experiences in countries with abundant natural resources. The evidence suggests that natural resources are neither a curse nor destiny. Natural resources can actually spur economic development when combined with the accumulation of knowledge for economic innovation. Furthermore, natural resource abundance need not be the only determinant of the structure of trade in developing countries. In fact, the accumulation of knowledge, infrastructure, and the quality of governance all seem to determine not only what countries produce and export, but also how firms and workers produce any good.

Increasingly, people are realizing that education must continue throughout life. We face the choice of remaining as we are or developing ourselves. Through his extensive experience of leading seminars and training, the author developed three paths for adult learning: "vocational learning," "destiny learning," and "spiritual research learning." He describes the sevenfold path of destiny learning that leads through group-work to karmic knowledge. He also describes the seven professional fields of the adult educator as an aid to self-education.

Before this book first appeared in 1963, most historians wrote as if the continental expansion of the United States were inevitable. "What is most impressive," Henry Steele Commager and Richard Morris declared in 1956, "is the ease, the simplicity, and seeming inevitability of the whole process." The notion of inevitability, however, is perhaps only a secular variation on the theme of the expansionist editor John L. O'Sullivan, who in 1845 coined one of the most famous phrases in American history when he wrote of "our manifest destiny to overspread the continent allotted by Providence for the free development of our yearly multiplying millions." Frederick Merk rejected inevitability in favor of a more contingent interpretation of American expansionism in the 1840s. As his student Henry May later recalled, Merk "loved to get the facts straight." --From the Foreword by John Mack Faragher

One of the classics of modern Jewish thought, Kol Dodi Dofek is now translated into English and titled Fate and Destiny: From the Holocaust to the State of Israel. Rabbi Soloveitchik presents an extended theological meditation on the Holocaust and the rise of the State of Israel, a profound examination of the Jewish "covenant of faith" and the "covenant of fate and destiny" which links all Jews, religious and irreligious and non-religious. This covenant of faith manifests itself in shared circumstances, shared responsibility and shared activity. Fate and destiny likewise links all Jews, but while fate is thrust upon the Jews, destiny is freely chosen by the individual Jew and the Jewish people by adopting a Torah lifestyle and possesses both significance and purpose.

Is Geography Destiny by John Luke Gallup

This publication challenges the premise that geographical influences need not be taken into account in economic development issues. It argues that, based on a better understanding of geography, public policy can help control or channel its influence toward the goals of economic and social development and poverty reduction. Using both an international perspective and a case study approach for individual countries, the book examines geographical factors, such as land productivity, the presence of endemic diseases, natural disaster frequency and market access, in order to explore development inequalities between and within Latin American countries. It also considers policy options for overcoming the limitations of geography for the region.
