She was the first female writer to win the Nobel Prize in Literature, and is best remembered for her children's book Nils Holgerssons underbara resa genom Sverige (The Wonderful Adventures of Nils).A visit in 1900 to the American Colony in Jerusalem became the inspiration for Lagerl�f's book by that name. The royal family and the Swedish Academy gave her substantial financial support to continue her passion By 1895, she gave up her teaching to devote herself to her writing. With the help of proceeds from G�sta Berlings Saga and a scholarship and grant, she made two journeys which were largely instrumental in providing material for her next novel. With Elkan, she traveled to Italy, and she also traveled to Palestine and other parts of the East.In Italy, a legend of a Christ Child figure that had been replaced with a false version inspired Lagerl�f's novel Antikrists mirakler (The Miracles of the Antichrist). Set in Sicily, the novel explores the interplay between Christian and socialist moral systems. However, most of Lagerl�f's stories were set in V�rmland.Lagerlof was asked by the National Teacher's Association in 1902 to write a geography book for children. She interestingly combined informative facts of Sweden's geography with a boy named Nils Holgersson. When the boy got in trouble, he traveled to many different provinces, allowing children to learn about Sweden while staying interested.This volume features three of her novels, one of them, a very famous fictionalization of the life of Christ; the other, about the coming of the Antichrist.The novels are:THE MIRACLES OF ANTICHRISTINVISIBLE LINKSCHRIST LEGENDS

Based upon the works of some of the world’s greatest thinkers, Lessons from Sedona: A Spiritual Pathway to Serenity and Contentment by author Lewis Tagliaferre, builds on the success of his first volume, Voices of Sedona. This new, comprehensive collection of essays is designed to teach the fundamental principles of Theofatalism—the belief that God runs everything in the universe from the smallest subatomic particle to the largest interstellar galaxy. The essays link the five principles developed in Voices of Sedona to contemporary issues in society and personal living including politics, science, religion, aging, history, and economics. Useful for both self-study and as lesson guides to be used in organized discussion groups, the essays show the world as it really is from many different perspectives. A comprehensive and formidable source on metaphysics and spirituality, Lessons from Sedona: A Spiritual Pathway to Serenity and Contentment provides a plethora of information for those interested in growing, changing, and transcending the limiting constrictions of consensus beliefs. It communicates humankind’s unique place in time and space and their special role in the giant jigsaw puzzle of life.

There is a deep gulf between institutions of higher education and basic education in India, fostered to a large extent by a skewed education policy. The contributors to this important volume start from the premise that universities have a social obligation and that extension programmes are a way of fulfilling them. They set out the empirical contours of the grassroots work which establishes the interface of universities with societies. In doing so the volume spells out the different dimensions of and kinds of linkages between higher and basic education. Bringing together scholars and activists from diverse fields, it shows that basic education is taking place in different settings and locations despite formidable obstacles.
