Redefining the debate about religion in public life, Hitchens takes on the faithful, arguing eloquently to make the ultimate case against religion through a close & learned reading of the major religious texts. Citing the personal story of his own dangerous encounters with faith, Hitchens describes his intellectual journey toward a secular view of life based on science and reason, in which the heavens are replaced by the Hubble telescope's awesome view and the double helix replaces Moses and the burning bush. 307p.
  • God Is Not Great: The Case Against Religion

    • Published: 2007
    In the tradition of Bertrand Russell's Why I Am Not a Christian, Christopher Hitchens makes the ultimate case against religion in this series of acute readings of the major religious texts. He demonstrates the ways in which religion is man-made, dangerously sexually repressive and distorts the very origins of the cosmos. With robust clarity, Hitchens frames the argument for a more secular life based on science and reason, in which hell is replaced by the Hubble Telescope's awesome view of the universe and Moses and the burning bush give way to the beauty and symmetry of the double helix. Arguing that the concept of an omniscient God has profoundly damaged humanity, Hitchens farily revels in the possibility of society without religion. References, Index. 307p.

His own oddity is reflected in the companions he encounters - plungers, schemers, risk-takers, and 'hole-and-corner' operators like the would-be tycoon Einhorn or the would-be siren Thea, who travels with an eagle trained to hunt small creatures & gather new readers!

    This second volume of Christopher Isherwood's remarkable diaries opens on his fifty-sixth birthday, as the fifties give way to the decade of social and sexual revolution. Isherwood takes the reader from the bohemian sunshine of Southern California to a London finally swinging free of postwar gloom, to the racy cosmpolitanism of New York and to the raw Australian outback. he charts his ongoing quest for spiritual certainty under the guidance of his Hindu guru, and he reveals in reckless detail the emotional drama of his love for the American painter Don Bachardy, thrity years his junior and struggling to establish his own artistic identity. The diaries are crammed with wicked gossip and probing psychological insights about the cultural icons of the time - from Francis Bacon to Gore Vidal. But the diaries are most revealing about Isherwood himself - his fiction, his film writing, his college teaching, and his affairs of the heart. In the background run references to the political and historical events of the period. , i.e., the Vietnam War, the Summer of Love. An unparalleled chronicle with open-ended consequences. Glossary, Index. 756p.
