              The word chakra is derived from the Sanskrit cakra, meaning 'wheel' or 'circle'. Literally translated from Hindi, it means 'a wheel of spinning energy'. Inside our bodies, we have a number of these whirling, vortex-like centres of natural energy that, taken together, form the Cha...kra System, a channel for the integration of mind, body and spirit. Chakras provides a window through which beginners can learn simple techniques to practice at home in order to keep their chakras in balance, enhancing their spiritual, mental and physical lives. These include yoga, meditation, eating a balanced diet and the use of scents and essential oils, crystals and colour. It also outlines what might happen if the chakras become blocked due to stress, emotional or physical problems and, more importantly, what to do about it. If the body's 'energy system' cannot flow freely it may result in physical discomfort, illness or a sense of mental or emotional imbalance. The book includes techniques to help restore the balance through cleansing and healing energy.

              A rogues gallery of social misfits formed the Nazis' inner circle. They hated and conspired against each other but were held together by their admiration for the Fuhrer, and step by step they dragged the nation towards the abyss. Drawing on a wide range of sources, author Paul Ro...land unravels the web of diplomacy, deceit and double-dealing which Hitler spun to ensure the war he had always wanted. This is the extraordinary story of the little Austrian corporal with the twisted psycho who rose from obscurity to command the world's most formidable military machine, before destroying himself and the empire he claimed would last a thousand years. While demanding that the German people made sacrifices for a war which few in Hitler's inner circle believed they could win, Nazi leaders were leading lives of incredible debauchery, privilege and power. It was theft and murder on the grandest scale. This book features the stories of ordinary people caught up in the web of history, living in the grip of a regime that did not care if it destroyed the whole country in pursuit of its perverted goals. Featuring a section on the Nuremberg Trials when the Nazis were brought to justice. Includes portraits of the Nazi leaders.

              Eduard Manet was a French modernist painter and one of the first artists in the 19th century to paint modern life and everyday subjects, including the then scandalous Le dejeuner sur l'herbe and painting of bars and other everyday meeting places. His paintings marked the transiti...on from realism to the looser, freer style that signalled the beginnings of modern art. This lavishly illustrated full-colour hardback is a guide to Manet's life and work, showcasing his best paintings alongside fascinating biographic detail. It also explores his technique, the materials he used, and his contribution to the embracing of ordinary people and situations as appropriate subjects for art.
