📒Sex In The World Of Myth ✍ David Leeming
📝Sex in the World of Myth Book Synopsis : In Sex in the World of Myth, David Leeming argues that sex is as important in myths as it is in our daily lives. Casting myths as our cultural dreams, Leeming argues that sex is pervasive in all mythologies because it has obsessed and confused us like nothing else. He reveals how sexual myths, like all myths, can have many purposes. The reproductive acts of the ancient Greek goddess Gaia, for instance, may reflect a pre-Olympian matriarchal social system, while tales of the unbridled sexual deeds of the Polynesian Maui, and many others, speak to a natural fascination with the power and mystery of sexual drives. Both a survey of the sex lives of the world's mythological figures and their deep meaning, Sex in the World of Myth demonstrates that even when such myths are meant to elicit laughter or titillation, the participation in them of sacred heroes and deities means they are in some sense religious--tales offering us partial answers to the nature of existence in general, and of human sexuality in particular.

📒A World Of Myth ✍ Nobel M. Pasi
📝A World of Myth Book Synopsis : A World of Myth is an excellent introduction to the topic of global migration, xenophobia and racism. Written by Nobel M. Pasi (a global migrant who has lived in Zimbabwe, the United Kingdom, Canada, New Zealand and Australia), the book looks at 28 myths about migrants that are commonly spread by politicians, the mass media, and the public at large. Using data from nations across the world, each myth is challenged for its validity. Do migrants steal jobs from locals and hurt the national economy? Do migrants just want a "free ride" on public benefits systems? Does multiculturalism threaten national culture and social cohesion? What is the correlation between migrants and crime? Answers to all these questions and more are found in this book. A World of Myth is a great tool for those who wish to investigate the "pros and cons" debate about global migration. Whichever side of the debate you are on, this book will surprise you, challenge you and help you root out the myths that cloud your conception of the foreigners that share your locale. Forward looking, left-of-centre, and unafraid of making unpopular statements due to a fierce commitment to human rights, A World of Myth will open your eyes to a new way of appreciating the lot of migrants everywhere.
