Über diesen Titel


The book speaks about a most powerful phenomenon in social life, religion, regarding it as one of the strongest and most productive motifs in human life.

In this book, the composition of time and place, worldwide, speaks in favor of the conclusions reached in this book, namely, that the picture from so many different examples teaches us about same common motifs inherent in different societies, and points to the common characteristics of religion. These common characteristics, mainly, look unchanged and unchangeable, at any time, any place, and under any circumstances.

About the Author:

Yehuda Cohen, a Jew, was born in 1931 in the Land of Israel, which was then Palestine. He has been practicing as a lawyer since 1957 having received his LLM at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem in 1955. For the past 7 years he has been a research student (for Ph. D) in the same University. He wrote a book about the judicial policy of the Supreme Court of Israel in regards to the principle of a Jewish state. He blamed the judges of that court for their breaching of the constitutional principle upon which Israel was founded, and for changing the character of Israel to a standard democratic state. The book was published in 2001 by the Israel Law Chamber, and managed to make its mark upon the Israeli political circles. It also piqued the interest of the academia involved in Israeli law, and became prescribed reading for the law degree that is taught in universities. The book is written in Hebrew.

The second book, in English, is about Religion at large, its power, by-products and functions, viewed at from a Socio- Anthropological angle. It seeks to expose new aspects of the value of religion, using these aspects as a framework through which we can relate to the terror events of September 11th.

The common link between the two books is their positive attitude to old traditions, to historical and sociological roots, and to spiritual values. Both these books release their readers from the fears and superstitions that are built into modernity.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
