  • Polyamory : The New Love Without Limits : Secrets of Sustainable Intimate Relationships by Deborah M, Dr. Anapol has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ayran Aluna...and Ayran has this to say about the book: "There is no ONE 'right way' for healthy, durable, loving relationships among people -- and for the construction of stable loving environments for children (so lacking in 'modern' industrialised societies). Polyamory suggests that any and every form of loving relationship based on honesty and respect for others, including whatever form of 'sexual' intimacies may be involved, is not only healthy and desirable but in effect an essential element in the development of our full humanity - unconstrained by the ('miserable', fearful, dogmatic, patriarchal, controlling, sex-negative) ideologies and "religions" of the Dominator/Taker Cultures. 'Responsible and respectful non-monogamy', as it is sometimes called, breaks the last taboo - the fundamental 'sexual' control-mechanism of Patriarchal/Androcratic/Dominator/Taker Cultures. That is why it also provokes the greatest and loudest cries of abuse and indignation by outraged defenders of so-called 'family-values' and 'morals' -- who overtly, or instinctively, see and feel that open and 'unlimited' loving, including the 'sexual' forms, is the most powerful (and hence for them the most 'dangerous') tool for dismantling all old orthodox structures based on 'power-over' and control. What evokes the greatest fear can sometimes be a most powerful tool for our awakening and liberation -- I suggest that 'polyamory' is one of those."
    Check out and/or Order Polyamory : The New Love Without Limits : Secrets of Sustainable Intimate Relationships from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Pope Joan by Donna Woolfolk Cross has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Katie Field...and Katie has this to say about the book: "Pope Joan is a really cool book and you should read it because Joan is a really good character and a good role model."
    Check out and/or Order Pope Joan from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Population Politics by Virginia Abernethy, PhD has been suggested by Ishmael Network member josh trutt...and josh has this to say about the book: "One thing we all wish D.Q. had more time for is the scientific evidence for some of his more "controversial" ideas. Abernethy provides much of that. This is the definitive case against the "Demographic Transition Theory"-- the outdated notion that people will lower their fertility rates once they reach upper-middle class. Abernethy shows dozens of examples that support D.Q's contention that humans are like every other animal-- we respond to plentiful resources by increasing reproduction, and we respond to a limit in resources by decreasing reproduction. In my opinion, this book and The Ecology of Commerce by Paul Hawken are the two strongest must-reads alongside Ishmael and B."
    Check out and/or Order Population Politics from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Power of Now by Eckhart Tolle has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Ryan Burke...and Ryan has this to say about the book: "This book relates to Daniel Quinn's vision in that it speaks the truth. Not only that but it gives people a clear and concise vision of the suffering that Taker's experience and the joy and peace that comes from giving up the Taking, and the I, and the ego that is ultamitely doing the taking. If you can relate to Ishmael then you can relate to "The Power of Now""
    Check out and/or Order Power of Now from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Power vs Force by David Hawkins has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Daniel Duggan...and Daniel has this to say about the book: "Raises the level of Consciousness"

    Check out and/or Order Power: A Novel from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Primitive Technology A book Of Earth Skills by David Wescott has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "The Society of Primitive Technology and Native Awareness is a wonderful organization I recently discovered dedicated to researching and teaching skills used by not just our primitive ancestors, but by modern tribal peoples all over the world. In learning these skills, we learn how these people related to the world. "Practicing these primitive methods will lead the seeker towards a tangible, raw connection with the ancient past, with nature's resources and, ultimately, with the creative forces that constructed the foundation of man's survival on the planet.""
    Check out and/or Order Primitive Technology A book Of Earth Skills from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Psy-Earth Quest by Charles Bensinger has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Cynthia Bunnell...and Cynthia has this to say about the book: "Gives ideas on how we can all work to save the planet."

  • Radiant Joy Brilliant Love by Clinton Callahan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Clinton Callahan...and Clinton has this to say about the book: "For example, fear. Modern culture teaches that fear (and anger and sadness) are so-called negative feelings, bad feelings. But before you can do what DQ suggests, namely exit civilization, you must go to the edge of civilization. Beyond the edge of civilization is the unknown, and as you approach the edge you will feel fear, deep fear. If you have not gone through the rite of passage process of changing your relationship to fear, the fear will make you think that something is wrong with you, or that what you are about to do is dangerous. So you will go back. You will not be able to exit civilization. It does not matter how much better it is Beyond Civilization. If you cannot experience your fear as an adult man or woman and use its energy and information to guide you, you will never make the leap, not even the tiniest step. Radiant Joy Brilliant Love is a treasure chest of empowering clarity and thoughtmaps about fear, other feelings, rite of passage, relationship, communication, holding and navigating space, rapid-learning, High Level Fun... It's fantastic."
    Check out and/or Order Radiant Joy Brilliant Love from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Radical Ecology by Carolyn Merchant has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Richard Tardif...and Richard has this to say about the book: "This book explores different worldviews and movement in a fairly objective matter. Very interesting book."
    Check out and/or Order Radical Ecology from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Rattling the cage-toward legal rights for animals by Steven M. Wise has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Antoine Kolmel...and Antoine has this to say about the book: "Aside from the deep study of legal facts about different views and relationship that our cultures have and have had toward animals, it speaks for tiself when proving that we have long set ourselves aside from the community of life."
    Check out and/or Order Rattling the cage-toward legal rights for animals from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Re: Colonized Planet 5: Shikasta by Doris Lessing has been suggested by Ishmael Network member William Carrington...and William has this to say about the book: "Shows several cultures besides what exists on Earth today and supports many of DQ's ideas."
    Check out and/or Order Re: Colonized Planet 5: Shikasta from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Real Lives by Grace Llewellyn has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Rose Draconis...and Rose has this to say about the book: "I noticed a chapter titled "Unschooling the World," I think, in _My Ishmael_, but I'm not sure Quinn ever went into depth on the subject of unschooling -- this book does."
    Check out and/or Order Real Lives from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Real Magic by Wayne Dyer has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Rebecca Harrington...and Rebecca has this to say about the book: "Read this when you are ready to begin manifesting change in your own life. There is so much here, I'm going to have to buy this book (and I'm a die-hard library person)!"
    Check out and/or Order Real Magic from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Rebalancing The World by Carol Lee Flinders has been suggested by Ishmael Network member anna oleynik...and anna has this to say about the book: "The parallels are so astonishing that I assumed she was already in his following. However, she was unaware of Quinn's work. She began as a feminist searching for the origin of male dominance, and it lead her to see that the adoption of agriculture lead to a profound change in cultural values, to a loss of our way of being in the world, and a split between genders, as well as of our spiritual nature. If Quinn gives an outline, these are the details."
    Check out and/or Order Rebalancing The World from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Reconnecting With Nature by Michael Cohen has been suggested by Ishmael Network member kevin bethel...and kevin has this to say about the book: "This book was designed to accompany a corespondance course at www.ecopsych.com but it is such good reading and fun to do the activities that I think many Ishmael readers would find it well worth their time (with or without the course, which can be taken for college credit by the way!). I think this book could help some of the Ishmael readers who finish Ishmael and want to find ways to "do something"."
    Check out and/or Order Reconnecting With Nature from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Red Earth, White Lies by Vine Deloria, jr. has been suggested by Ishmael Network member raleigh werberger...and raleigh has this to say about the book: "Deloria presents "a brilliant critique of Western science," and questions everything we know of our origins as taught us in school. He argues that tribal wisdom is at least as valid a knowledge source as science does, and in some cases, human memory and intuition is a truer guide that reliance of scientific arrogance"
    Check out and/or Order Red Earth, White Lies from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Red Earth, White Lies by Vine Deloria, Jr. has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Lasek...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "It dispels the myth the infalibility of science/archeology, particularly how it is related to Native Americans."
    Check out and/or Order Red Earth, White Lies from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Red Mars by Kim Stanley Robinson has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris Mueller...and Chris has this to say about the book: "The coops presented in Red Mars (and its sequels: Green Mars and Blue Mars) show a strong resemblence to the tribes proposed by Ishmael. The Mars books show that a tribal society can work."
    Check out and/or Order Red Mars from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Red Moon: Understanding and using the gifts of the menstrual cycle by Miranda Gray has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kimber Score...and Kimber has this to say about the book: "This wonderful and enlightening book puts women back in touch with their bodies, their cyclic nature and their creative energies. A MUST READ FOR ALL WOMEN!! Remember, there is no one right way to be a woman. Be yourself! Break free from the linear mold of mother culture!"
    Check out and/or Order Red Moon: Understanding and using the gifts of the menstrual cycle from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

    Check out and/or Order Refuge from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Remembrances for Deep Living by James Swank has been suggested by Ishmael Network member James Swank...and James has this to say about the book: "This book is an introduction to a way of disconnecting from the effects of the conditioning that keeps us connected to the myth of Mother Culture. It is a fun and creative companion volume to "Deep Living: A path to happiness and fulfillment through honesty, courage, consciousness, and self-responsibility" which is a more comprehensive description of this world view and practice. These books look at the same issues Daniel writes about at the personal level as opposed to the global level. "
    Check out and/or Order Remembrances for Deep Living from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Return of the Warriors by Theun Mares has been suggested by Ishmael Network member david Fiske...and david has this to say about the book: "The first of a series of books on the Toltec teachings it could be most useful for acquiring clarity in one's life and living in harmony within oneself and with one's community and environment. Furthermore if we go into a world increasingly racked and rent by sudden and unpredictable change it could help one have the objectivity and the " witness" quality to walk unperturbed and impeccably amidst the chaos. For those who know these things they can admire Theun's succinctness and lack of subterfuge and the way of putting it all very directly and unambiguously; for those to whom it is new they might well find it a good start of a wonderful journey."
    Check out and/or Order Return of the Warriors from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Revolution: A Call to Holy War by Michael Brown has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Adam Sharp...and Adam has this to say about the book: "It calls for a rejection of the status quo, a rejection of the way Mother Culture encourages us to live, and a rejection of timidness and fear."
    Check out and/or Order Revolution: A Call to Holy War from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Ritual: Power, Healing, and Community by Malidoma Patrice Some has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Nathan Binnema...and Nathan has this to say about the book: "Malidoma Patrice Some is an elder of the Dagara of West Africa, one of the oldest indigenous cultures on Earth. I'll have to be careful here; I understand the lesson of "The Crystals of Rapanah," and why 'Ishmael' might be wary of yet another book about an indigenous culture's practices. I don't think Malidoma's books are just another Tava stone, however. Like Quinn, Malidoma intelligently elucidates general principles of an indigenous lifestyle, and how people in the West might apply these principles, instead of merely copying specific rituals or practices. The reason I find Malidoma's books to be so valuable is that Malidoma seems to be doing essentially the same thing as Daniel Quinn: explaining the principles of a Leaver, or indigenous, way of life - and yet Malidoma says very few of the same things that Quinn does. It is very instructive to note the differences between what Quinn, a Taker, notices about Leaver and Taker cultures, and what Malidoma, a Leaver, notices about Leaver and Taker cultures. The two authors complement each other so well because they cover each other's blind spots. "Ritual" is the smallest of Malidoma Patrice Some's books, and probably the best introduction. After reading "Ritual" go on to "The Healing Wisdom of Africa" and "Of Water and the Spirit.""
    Check out and/or Order Ritual: Power, Healing, and Community from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Rolling Thunder by Doug Boyd has been suggested by Ishmael Network member ben bruce...and ben has this to say about the book: "A written documentary on a Shoshone/Cheyenne medicine man named Rolling Thunder. His insights were remarkably similar to those found in Quinn's books, and they come from a man who has lived the life we all talk about on the internet."
    Check out and/or Order Rolling Thunder from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Rule of the Bone by Russell Banks has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Rachel Nishan...and Rachel has this to say about the book: "Bone is another of the generation forced to fix the world before he can begin to make a life for himself. As I read this book a first, second, third, fourth, and fifteenth time, I grew up right along with Bone, seeing what he saw, realizing what he realized, and coming to terms with the world and how to live in it without going crazy. This book is excellent on so many different levels, it's impossible to take it in its entirety in one reading."
    Check out and/or Order Rule of the Bone from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Running on Emptiness: The Pathology of Civilization by John Zerzan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Xavier Sonnerat...and Xavier has this to say about the book: "The first half of the book is too esoteric for my taste and I don't totally agree with Zerzan's arguments. The second half is much better and concrete."
    Check out and/or Order Running on Emptiness: The Pathology of Civilization from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Rustic Retreats by David Stiles and Jeanie Stiles has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "This little book takes a look at every thing from the old fashioned Lean-To, to the tree house, to River Rafts, to Wigwam, Tipi, Stacked Log Hogans, and the Yurt or Ger. Log Cabins and Writer's Retreats. Even the ancient Campfire Circle. A good book on being comfortable in the wilds or in your own back yard, anywhere you attempt to get "Beyond Civilization" to think. I enjoyed the chapters on On The Ground shelters and Primitive Native Shelters the most. Learning to work with local materials to provide one of the necessities of life can give you a new outlook on the world. Mainly, "Why would I want to kill off that which sustains and protects me?""
    Check out and/or Order Rustic Retreats from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Sacred Balance by David suzuki has been suggested by Ishmael Network member david Fiske...and david has this to say about the book: "Most moving and scientific "proof" that all life is One and We ARE the environment. It had me crying in parts."
    Check out and/or Order Sacred Balance from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Sacred Land, Sacred Sex, Rapture of the Deep by Delores LeChapelle has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jon Haloin...and Jon has this to say about the book: "This book offers some real solutions to the eternal question of "what to do." It shows an understading of the place you inhabit as "sacred" is essential to appreciating life. Her discussion of ritual revelals many of the specifics of how leaver communites are able work."
    Check out and/or Order Sacred Land, Sacred Sex, Rapture of the Deep from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Sarum, the Novel of England by Edward Rutherfurd has been suggested by Ishmael Network member K Mattern...and K has this to say about the book: "Edward Rutherfurd's book is an impressive work of art and story-telling, spanning the history and prehistory of England and related as part anthropological study, part history, part novel with all the color and characterization we expect from a multi-generational novel, and it is very well written. Beautifully written. In the first two chapters, he shows us neolithic and mesolithic hunter-gatherers who are recognizably 'modern' humans - no caveman grunts or poor syntax here - these are smart people with emotions and all the other intellectual features of modern humans (homo sapiens sapiens). In chapter two, the hunter-gatherers meet their first Takers, and show the kind of strategies of accomodation which ultimately absorb these Leavers into the Takers' clan, which Quinn describes in Ishmael and the Story of B. Rutherfurd writes all of this brilliantly. In chapter three he describes the kinds of sacrifices that happened at Stonehenge and some of the growing social mores of the Takers' culture, while situating the building of the new circle of taller gray stones in its own time-setting (the henge had already been there for 800 years). Sarum is one of the oldest continuously inhabited places in England, and I think Rutherfurd has given us a tour de force with this book while illustrating many of the cultural principles Quinn explores. The first few chapters are particularly good for this purpose."
    Check out and/or Order Sarum, the Novel of England from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Savage Inequalities by Jonathan Kozol has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Chris Holbert...and Chris has this to say about the book: "Great insight into the public school system, specifically inner-city schools."
    Check out and/or Order Savage Inequalities from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Savages and Civilization by Jack Weatherford has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gus Steeves...and Gus has this to say about the book: "Intercultural contact promotes evolution. Isolation promotes cultural stagnation and decay. We all know that, or should. But for millennia, city folk have gradually been forgetting that crucial fact, gradually devouring other peoples and nature itself, despite the fact that tribal peoples often made their lives possible. That's Weatherford's basic thesis, and he uses examples from all over the world -- many of them places he visited during his anthropological studies -- to prove it. Agriculture, animal domestication, cities, industry... all of them have given us positive and negative things. The problem is that we have yet to come to terms with how profoundly each of them changed how we approach each other and the world. Given that we still haven't handled agriculture well, it's not surprising the others continue to be problems. DQ has the same basic theory, but Weatherford provides evidence, evidence, and more evidence. But he also adds that civilization's dominance is already proving it's undoing. "The nation-state absorbed the remaining tribal people ... swallowed them but could not digest them. ...We should not mistake this one act (modern civilzation's dominance) for the whole drama of human history, nor should we assume that the present act is the final one just because it is before us at this moment. Much came before us and much remains to be enacted.""
    Check out and/or Order Savages and Civilization from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Secrets Of Sacred Space by Chuck Pettis has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Matthew Paulus...and Matthew has this to say about the book: "Again, like Stone Circle by Rob Roy, learning about how and why our ancestors did the things they did may just open our eyes as to how they saw the world. This in turn could give us a new vision to follow that does not put us at odds with the world. Besides, this is just a plan fun topic for me."
    Check out and/or Order Secrets Of Sacred Space from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Secrets of the Talking Jaguar by Martin Prechtel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Kerry Ratza...and Kerry has this to say about the book: "autobiography of Martin Prechtel-the story of his life with the Maya in Guatemala and tribal living!"
    Check out and/or Order Secrets of the Talking Jaguar from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Secrets of the Talking Jaguar: a Mayan Shaman's Journey to the Heart of the Indigenous Soul by Martin Prechtel has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Bill Finney...and Bill has this to say about the book: "This book is about "keeping the interconnectedness of life alive by remembering". It is also about humans as one of the myriad living beings sustained by the earth in the law of life."
    Check out and/or Order Secrets of the Talking Jaguar: a Mayan Shaman's Journey to the Heart of the Indigenous Soul from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Seeing Like a State: How Certain Schemes to Improve the Human Condition Have Failed by James Scott has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Meritt...and Mark has this to say about the book: "An excellent account of how the best laid plans fail when a short-term, non-system view is taken. Almost a companion piece to Tenner's "Why Things Bite Back.""
    Check out and/or Order Seeing Like a State: How Certain Schemes to Improve the Human Condition Have Failed from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Self Made Man by Jonathan Kingdon has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Gavin Hadaller...and Gavin has this to say about the book: "A rather heavy read for the layperson, it covers the evolution of mankind alongside his technology from an archeological perspective. "Human Evolution from Eden to Extinction?" Kingdon is Professor of Zoology at Oxford University and an internationally known expert on evolution (even though the Kansas State school board hates it)he is a research scientist in primatology and evolutionary biology and is a regular visitor to Africa and the Middle East. His ideas and theories are powerful as well as insightful. If you read only one book about human evolution, read this one."
    Check out and/or Order Self Made Man from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Seven Life Lessons of Chaos by John Briggs has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Zachary Vogt...and Zachary has this to say about the book: "Giving the philosophical application of chaos theory, it helps do develop a mind aware of the world around it."
    Check out and/or Order Seven Life Lessons of Chaos from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • SEX AT DAWN by Christopher Ryan, Ph Cacilda Jethá, M.D. has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Destry G....and Destry has this to say about the book: "It's a supra-cultural exploration of a THE primary adult human behavioral motivation: our mating instincts. It is meant to do for our conception of human adulthood what Quinn's writings on education have hopefully begun to do for our conception of human adolescence: namely, to revolutionize it."
    Check out and/or Order SEX AT DAWN from Amazon.com! You can also order from a local bookstore by using BookSense.

  • Shadow Dancing in the U.S.A. by Michael Ventura has been suggested by Ishmael Network member David Kaar...and David has this to say about the book: "Similar world wiew, deep cultural criticism, "What comes after A.D.?"

  • Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors by Carl Sagan and Ann Druyan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Mark Meritt...and Mark has this to say about the book: "A great, in-depth exploration of non-human animals, especially other primates, showing that there is nothing that is truly unique about humans - a thought at the center of Quinn's work."

  • Shadows of Forgotten Ancestors- a Search For Who We Are by Carl Sagan has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Jim Emerson...and Jim has this to say about the book: "Carl Sagan presents the history of our planet from the Big Bang until the present day, emphasizing the interrelatedness of all life on earth. There is a great chapter on the everyday life of a chimpanzee troup that is a little too humanlike for comfort. It was the basis if a sermon I delivered to my UU church in 1993"

  • Shattering the Myths of Darwinism by Richard Milton has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Richard Matwichuk...and Richard has this to say about the book: "Describes various flaws in neo-Darwinist evolutionary theory from a scientific viewpoint.

  • Shibumi by . Trevanian has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Pax Rolfe...and Pax has this to say about the book: "It tells the story of a man who has found no place in society and creates his own world removed, while doing battle with mother culture, amazingly enough, refered to as the mother company in the book."

  • Shikasta by Doris Lessing has been suggested by Ishmael Network member Eilidh Benedetti...and Eilidh has this to say about the book: "The science fictionalised here is probably social anthropology, and while it is a grim look at a possible, very realistically possible future, it is one of those important books that can haunt you for years to come... There is a cycle of four and I didn't look to see any others of her works being posted, but if you do read it, I'd like to hear what you think of the concept of 'the necessity'"
