  • The Mountain People by Colin Turnbull has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gavin O'Brien...and Gavin has this to say about the book: "This book presents the story of how an African tribe was tranformed from groups of stable hunter gatherers to villages of selfish, hungry, violent people due to the effects of Taker control."
    Check out and/or Order The Mountain People from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Myths of Motherhood by Shari Thurer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member cassandra crewe...and cassandra has this to say about the book: "This book gives new light to the idea that mothers are NOT solely responsible for their childrens' personal development. It also shows human history through a VERY different perspective. The idea becomes clear that development of children has more to do with the changing attitudes of society and how children and mothers are perceived. With reverence comes higher conciousness. With disdain comes base survival."
    Check out and/or Order The Myths of Motherhood from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Naked Ape by Desmond Morris has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Antoine Kolmel...and Antoine has this to say about the book: "This is an excellent book thats presents the human story from a zoologists point of view. It is a romantic adventure on how every little thing that ever happened to our ancestors have contributed to our developpent: from why we are territorial to why we are the only primate with backhairs that flow downward along the spine... Strictly factual, this outside of the box perspective of our beings' becoming proves how miraculous our story really is. Very good to preceed or even follow Ishmael with this book. Indeed a must read!"
    Check out and/or Order The Naked Ape from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Next Generation Gap by Kem Luther has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kem Luther...and Kem has this to say about the book: "Page 187 of The Next Generation Gap: "As the futurist Daniel Quinn points out '[n]o paradigm is ever able to imagine the next one. It's almost impossible for one paradigm to imagine that there will even be a next one.'""
    Check out and/or Order The Next Generation Gap from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Ninja And Their Secret Fighting Art by Stephen Hayes has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "One of the things I have noticed about Mother Culture is that she uses psychological warfare to manipulate us into doing her bidding. I recommend chapter 7 of this book to anyone wishing to learn how to recognize when they are being emotionally manipulated into doing something they don't want to do. Once you learn to free yourself of all those "Buttons" that people can push to make you sad, angry, jealous, etc. then you take away one of Mother Cultures most effective weapons for getting you to stay in line and do what she wants."
    Check out and/or Order The Ninja And Their Secret Fighting Art from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Ohlone Way by Malcolm Margolin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ting Barrow...and Ting has this to say about the book: "Presents view of how a real hunter-gatherer society may have functioned for thousands of years in California."
    Check out and/or Order The Ohlone Way from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Old Neighborhood : What We Lost in the Great Suburban Migration, 1966-1999 by Ray Suarez has been suggested by Ishmael Network member George Gilman...and George has this to say about the book: "This book examines the richness and fullness of life in urban America and shows that "give support / get support" tribal living is not something unfamiliar or incompatible with urban life. Suarez makes a great presentation of both formal research and personal stories, showing that taking care of your neighbors and your neighborhood in a tribal fashion was standard operating proceedure in big city neighborhoods. He gives us a powerful reminder that, as recently as 30 years ago, this was still the rule rather than the exception and a lot of "Leaver Wealth" flourished in even the toughest neighborhoods of the toughest cities. He also looks at how we sold that birthright for a mess of pottage - In about half a lifetime we've managed to stomp out that supportive culture in favor of a prefabricated facade of suburban "affluence" that nobody really much likes, but that fewer and fewer people can seem to avoid contributing to. The book's a comfortable but compelling read and speaks to a lot of the frustrations of modern urban living that I hear from Ishmaelites and others who are concerned about "Taker expansion", especially as it's practiced in the suburban U.S.A. I personally loved this book because it's a great reminder that the tribal economy is not some foreign thing from Papua New Guinea or Neolithic times. Moving toward life outside the Taker economy is something we already know how to do, and we don't have to live out of dumpsters to do it."
    Check out and/or Order The Old Neighborhood : What We Lost in the Great Suburban Migration, 1966-1999 from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Old Way of Seeing (And How to Get It Back) by Jonathan Hale has been suggested by Ishmael Network member david ferron...and david has this to say about the book: "how did things get so ugly? "he shows how buildings turned from expressions of the human spirit into structures laden with symbols.. he uncovers...the principles that animate beautiful buildings...he proposes that we can regain access to our former mastery to again make places that come alive.""
    Check out and/or Order The Old Way of Seeing (And How to Get It Back) from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Omnivore's Dilemma by Michael Pollan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kelly Baumann...and Kelly has this to say about the book: "This book speaks of a more sustainable means of obtaining our food and reversing the "factory farm" mentality that society has so recently adopted. Much like Quinn's writing, I found this book very enlightening and helpful in considering another pathway of life and in a sense that it challenges the status quo. "
    Check out and/or Order The Omnivore's Dilemma from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The One Straw Revolution by Masanobu Fukuoka has been suggested by Ishmael Network member David Reid...and David has this to say about the book: ""I believe that if one fathoms deeply one's own neighborhood adn the everyday world in which ones lives, the greatest of worlds will be revealed." Fukuoka describes how he came to understand that nature will provide for us if only we assume our niche within the system. As personal and compelling as Ishmael, but more direct and practical."
    Check out and/or Order The One Straw Revolution from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming by Masanobu Fukuoka has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Shane Hunt...and Shane has this to say about the book: "This book is the philosophy of one other way to live, more specifically, of one other way to produce our food."
    Check out and/or Order The One-Straw Revolution: An Introduction to Natural Farming from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Origin of Conciousnes in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind by Julian Jaynes has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Alex Smith...and Alex has this to say about the book: "this book proposes an hypothesis regarding a massive shift in the development of the brain, language and psychology of the human animal during the early historical period. I havent thouroughly worked out all the cross reference implications with quinnian concepts and would appreciate if anyone else has read this book, any input or at least someone to talk with about it."
    Check out and/or Order The Origin of Conciousnes in the Breakdown of the Bicameral Mind from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Origin of Humankind by Richard Leakey has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Davern...and Mark has this to say about the book: "Very closely, it gives further evidence of Daniel's intuitive knowing of what is right and what is wrong. Gives the reasons why."
    Check out and/or Order The Origin of Humankind from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Ostrich Factor by Garrett Hardin has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Pam Kalish...and Pam has this to say about the book: "I recommend this book along with all Hardin's writings. Garrett Hardin was the first person to recognize the need to overcome the overpopulation "taboo" and discuss such unpopular subjects such as abortion. This is his latest book, but I also recommend "Living Within Limits" as well as his many related essays on "The Tragedy of the Commons". Until humans come to grips with their breeding habits while continuing to allow "the commons" to pay for such behavior, the environmental crise will continue to worsen."
    Check out and/or Order The Ostrich Factor from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Other Side of Eden: Hunters, Farmers and the Shaping of the World by Hugh Brody has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jennifer Sterling...and Jennifer has this to say about the book: "Hugh Brody is a Canadian anthropologist who has spent many years living with leaver peoples in the Canadian North. In this book he looks at hunter-gatherers and totalitarian agriculturalists as two seperate cultures with two distinct ways of living in the world, using the mirrors of language and religion with which to view them. Brody's conclusions match Quinn's, and he also encourages us to learn from the leaver way of living instead of trying to forget it and stamp it out."
    Check out and/or Order The Other Side of Eden: Hunters, Farmers and the Shaping of the World from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Outsider by Colin Wilson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bob Coleman...and Bob has this to say about the book: "Wilson, Colin, 1956, The Outsider (paperback). Back cover: "The seminal work on alienation, creativity, and the modern mind-set. The "Outsider" is an individual engaged in an intense self-exploration--a person who lives at the edge, challenges cultural values, and "stands for Truth." Born into a world without perspective, where others simply drift through life, the Outsider creates his own set of rules and lives them in an unsympathetic environment. ... Wilson explores the psyche of the Outsider, his effect on society, and society's effect on him. Wilson illuminates the struggle of those who seek not only the transformation of Self but also the transformation of society as a whole.""
    Check out and/or Order The Outsider from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Oversoul Seven Trilogy by Jane Roberts has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Beckie Price...and Beckie has this to say about the book: "You may know Jane Roberts for her Seth books, but this is a fiction work that has been instrumental in changing my perception of time and space. It's a book that covers the topic of a multi-dimensional soul and the fact that all time happens simultaneously."
    Check out and/or Order The Oversoul Seven Trilogy from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Palm Wine Drinkard by Amos Tutola has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chad Walsh...and Chad has this to say about the book: "Amos Tutola's novel is an amazing combination of the African native cultures and "Western cultures" (of course we all know "western" is probably not the right word). Anyways, The palm wine drinkard is put forth in a myth/oral tale and is eloquently written. Unfortunatley my words cannot convey the true feeling and poetry of this book but is definitely worth checking out."
    Check out and/or Order The Palm Wine Drinkard from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Path of Least Resistance : Learning to Become the Creative Force in Your Own Life by Robert Fritz has been suggested by Ishmael Network member John de Rosier...and John has this to say about the book: "THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE is a systems approach to creating that demonstrates, with down-to-earth systems models, the futility of using problem-solving approaches to create what we want. In short, Fritz clarifies what "vision" is really all about, and how "programs" and other problem-solving approaches will never (indeed cannot) produce the results we really want. An indispensable companion to Ishmael and a compass for those asking, "What do I do now?" Peter Senge, author of THE FIFTH DISCIPLINE says, "The principles and approach in THE PATH OF LEAST RESISTANCE have been a cornerstone in my work..." Readers will find the ideas in this book both personally transforming and socially relevant."
    Check out and/or Order The Path of Least Resistance : Learning to Become the Creative Force in Your Own Life from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Perpetual Prisoner Machine-How America Profits On Crime by Joel Dyer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Antoine Kolmel...and Antoine has this to say about the book: "It is filled with facts about the state of America that has come along in the years.The prison industrial complex is a perfect example a the self-perpetuating propaganda and mind control deeply engrained in our culture and how we strive to maintain it for incredible profiting while dividing social classes and conveniently locking up the poor and disadvantaged ones at an inconcievable rate. Amazing yet depressing as all hell!"

  • The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Stephanie Dorenbosch...and Stephanie has this to say about the book: "A family of white American Baptist missionaries travels to Africa in an attempt to save the souls of the natives, thinking that if they just show the natives the right Christian way of living, they'll choose it on their own. Buried in this book among the family drama and politics of the Belgian Congo is a message about forcing Westernization on people that have no use for it and whom it can only harm."
    Check out and/or Order The Poisonwood Bible from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Poisonwood Bible by Barbara Kingsolver has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Samantha Hess...and Samantha has this to say about the book: "At the beginning and the end of the book, this sentence:"This forest eats itself and lives forever.""

  • The Power of Myth by Joseph Campbell has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jeff Angelovich...and Jeff has this to say about the book: "One of the great MythDreamers of our time was Joseph Campbell. He made us aware of the myths that we interact with everyday and how myths affect our lives. He was right on about that (as we know). Come read more in a dialogue format with Bill Moyers about the way this great man perceived the world we lived in. A SUPER supplement to anything by Quinn..."

  • The Power Of Now by Eckhart Tolle has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Nicholas Chill...and Nicholas has this to say about the book: "Much like Quinn's books, Eckhart Tolle's works focus on the dysfunction that is our present human culture. The difference with Tolle's work, however, is that he focuses on the issue from the viewpoint of within ourselves. The answer comes from a spiritual place, at a level where we are all connected. Within the Stillness of our being."

  • The Power Of One by Bryce Courtenay has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Andrew Stover...and Andrew has this to say about the book: "this book is the story of a young English boy growing up in South Africa during the beginings of Hitler's horrible rampages.

  • The Quest by Tom Brown, Jr. has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Lucienne Binkerd-Dale...and Lucienne has this to say about the book: "It is an amazing story of the teachings of Stalking Wolf, an Apache scout who taught Tom Brown,, Jr. for many years - how to survive in the wilderness, about the earth, about the world of most humans today, and so much more. It shows what we ( this culture ) are doing to the earth. I found the possible futures it told about terrifying at points, but also hopeful. This is an amazing book. I hope you all read it."

  • The Religions of Man by Huston Smith has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gus Steeves...and Gus has this to say about the book: "Originally written back in the 1950s, this now-out-of-print book looks at the major salvationist religions. Smith has clearly studied the subject in incredible depth (this is only one of MANY books he wrote on it), but, possibly because of when he wrote it, it has one glaring omission: Animism. Curiously, though, if you read between the lines, you can still see some of the ancient tribal/animist origins of some salvationist faiths (especially Hinduism and Judaism). He writes from a distinctly Taker POV (of course) and leaves out a few critical points, especially regarding the Judeo-Christian dualistic obsession with the devil. His stated goal is to be neutral and simply depict the faiths from the believers' POV, but some statements cry out for proof (and are unprovable). Otherwise, this tome is a pretty good and fairly readable summary of the major tenets of the big religions and a necessary look at the ideology animism is up against."
    Check out and/or Order The Religions of Man from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Revenge of Gaia by James Lovelock has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kevin Gadomski...and Kevin has this to say about the book: "Earth's Climate Crisis and The Fate of Humanity."

  • The Rhetoric of Diversity and the Traditions of American Literary Study: Critical Multiculturalism in English by Lesliee Antonette has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Lesliee Antonette...and Lesliee has this to say about the book: "Chapter four, in particular, offers a model of critical pedagogy that can produce effects similar to those produced by the midwifery performed by Ishmael. This pedagogy informs student and teacher through an examination of the relationship between those roles that occurs as a necessary part of the classroom experience. The course used as an example is Freshman composition. However, it can be adapted to any discipline, and any level of instruction at the university level. Its intended function is to "change minds." Chapters one and two offer an historical and critical overview of the function of muliticulturalism in the American university, and chapter three illustrates how that has informed the ways in which we read and acscribe value to a given text. It is really not a stretch to see the ways in which multiculturalism as a non-critical practice serves the reproduction of Taker culture. The author moves to define a "critical" multiculturalism that "changes minds" with regard to the ways in which the dominant -"Taker" - culture conceives of and perpetuates the concept of difference."

  • The Riddle of the Sphinx: thoughts about the human enigma by Jay G. Williams has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jason Kopchak...and Jason has this to say about the book: "Honestly, one of the books I thoroughly enjoy having on my shelf. A resource of diverse viewpoints regarding the origins of humanity, how we interact, language and culture and the perception of the world, as well as the fundamentals of the cultural imprinting that occurs with us world-wide from infancy. Just as with Ishmael, My, and B, you may or may not agree with some of what is said--you don't have to, it will not demand you to change your perspective, merely offer you another one."

  • The Road Less Traveled by M. Scott Peck has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Paul Henneman...and Paul has this to say about the book: "The individual must confront "mother culture" in order not to be caught up in the "Takers" gift of words, materialism, and weapons. With social media available at the flip of switch, stroke of a key, social and individual "awareness" is sadly being commercialized, too. "
    Check out and/or Order The Road Less Traveled from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Roots of Science: An Investigative Journey through the World's Religions by Harold Turner has been suggested by Ishmael Network member John Stonecypher...and John has this to say about the book: "Like Quinn, the author takes a very broad view of history, and notes the dramatic (and not entirely positive) shift that occured 10,000 years ago when what we call "civilization" began. At that time, critiques arose of the encapsulated cosmological worldview of the animists. One such critique was the dualist cosmos that eventually branched off into the philosophies of the Greeks, Persians, and the Far Eastern religions. It is this dualism that posits the strong separation between matter and spirit. Another critique arose within the Semitic peoples of the middle east, finding their focal point in Abraham. Here, the primary cosmological distinction was not between spirit and matter, but between Creator and creation. With this cosmological understanding of human history, the author (an anthropologist) observes how these 3 cosmologies affected the rise of empirical science."

  • The Sacred and the Profane by Mircea Eliade has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gus Steeves...and Gus has this to say about the book: "Elaide makes it quite clear that when a culture (any culture) loses its perception of the world as a sacred place, it gets lost. Isn't that basically what we're trying to counter?"
    Check out and/or Order The Sacred and the Profane from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • The Sacred Balance by David Suzuki has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Richard Tardif...and Richard has this to say about the book: "The sacred balance: rediscovering our place in nature is an excellant book that was turned into a 4 part television special that was also ver very good.

  • The Satanic Bible by Anton La Vey has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Rudolph Green...and Rudolph has this to say about the book: "While the tones of the messages may differ, the basic idea is the same: humans are here to live. The Satanic Bible is not about scary demons or hellfire, it is actually a book written from a very interesting perspective, that encorages people to see thorugh the fallacies confining them. It relays the message to ignore what your community and church tell you, and encorages the reader to wake up and realize that life is not about obeying man made rules, it is about living."

  • The Science and Art of Tracking by Tom Jr. Brown has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris Shaeffer...and Chris has this to say about the book: "Shirin, in The Story of B, links the skill of tracking to the beginings of humaness.
