Über diesen Titel
Genesis Regained is the fourth book in a series that began with Life Before Genesis (Peter Lang, 1985), and was followed by Return to Eden (Peter Lang, 1996), and Afterlife Before Genesis (Peter Lang, 1997). In this volume, David Turner takes a key concept critical to the Australian Aboriginal way of life, namely Renunciation, and explores the implications for interpreting other major religious traditions, particularly Judeo-Christianism. Aspects of Hinduism, Buddhism, and Islam are explored along with the terms of Canadian Confederation and Sunday Morning Hockey. Renunciation is seen as a subordinate subtheme in the major religious traditions and in history.About the Author:

Apart from his three previous books published with Lang, he is author of Tradition and Transformation, Australian Aboriginal Scocial Organization, Shamattawa (with P.
