Carl G. Jung

THE UNDISCOVERED SELF

Argues that civilization’s future depends on

our ability as individuals to resist the collective

forces of society. Only by gaining an

awareness and understanding of one’s unconscious

mind and true, inner nature—“the

undiscovered self”—can we as individuals

acquire the self-knowledge that is antithetical

to ideological fanaticism.

SEARCH FOR HAPPINESS

As Hector travels from Paris to China to the

f THE NEW RELIGIONS

Originally published in 1970, The New Religions

was the first full-scale study of alternative

spirituality in America. It remains unparalleled

for the intellectual depth and seriousness

with which it regards Eastern, New Age, and

alternative faiths on the American landscape.

With a new introduction.

Tarcher • 304 pp. • 978-1-58542-744-4 • $14.95

f WHAT IS GOD?

In his most deeply personal work, religious

scholar Needleman cuts a clear path through

today’s clamorous debates over the existence

of God, illuminating an entirely new way of

approaching the question of how to understand

a higher power.

Tarcher • 256 pp. • 978-1-58542-740-6 • $24.95

Tarcher paperback available January 2011

WHY CAN’T WE BE GOOD

Needleman grapples with the ultimate question

of human nature: Why do we repeatedly

violate our most deeply held values and

beliefs? “Draws on a wide range of philosophers,

religious thinkers and psychologists—

from Socrates to Buddha to Rabbi Hillel—and

discovers that our inability to be good is simple:

humans are creatures of choice, and our

freedom allows us to make bad choices as well

as good ones. This freedom, however, is also

‘the freedom to love and act justly toward

man.’”—Publishers Weekly.

Tarcher • 304 pp. • 978-1-58542-620-1 • $14.95

THE HEART OF PHILOSOPHY

Needleman’s celebrated introduction to philosophy

economy, and how it could be channeled away

from volatility and violence. “Filled with clear

tenets among various groups—have kept Hinduism

alive in ways not fully explored. “Doniger

CHRISTIANITY

The First Three Thousand Years

The National Book Critics Circle Award-winner traces the Christian story

to all corners of the globe, filling in accounts of conversions and

confrontations in Africa and Asia, and charting the rise of the evangelical

movement from its origins in Germany and England.

“A landmark contribution....It is difficult to imagine a more comprehensive

and surprisingly accessible volume on the subject.”

—The New York Times Book Review

“It will have few, if any, rivals in the English language.”

—Rowan Williams, Archbishop of Canterbury

“A prodigious, thrilling, masterclass of a history book.”

—John Cornwell, Financial Times

“Immensely ambitious and absorbing.”—Adam Gopnik, The New Yorker

One of the foremost scholars of Hinduism in the world, Wendy Doniger shows how

Hinduism’s idiosyncratic qualities—the fluidity of its texts and central tenets among

various groups—have kept Hinduism alive in ways that other scholars have not fully

explored.

“Doniger’s enthralling and encyclopedic book reveals her vision of a Hindu culture

that is plural, varied, generous, and inclusive. Hinduism, in her view, is an intricate

weave of the diverse localities and communities of Indian culture. This is a rich text

that will encourage dialogue and conversation among a wide range of scholars.”

—Homi k. Bhabha, Harvard University

“With her vast erudition, insight, and graceful writing laced with gentle wit, there is

no one better than Wendy Doniger to convey the richness, depth, and diversity of

Hindu texts and traditions to international audiences. The Hindus is destined to

become a classic that will be discussed and debated for many years to come.”

—Sudhir Kakar, author of Indian Identity

“Wendy Doniger’s double vision of Hinduism is about women, merchants, lower

castes, animals, spirits, and, of course, Dead Male Brahmins. This lively, earthy

account explains why ancient India is the world’s richest storytelling culture.”

—Gurcharan Das, author of India Unbound
