Is it ever possible to win a war of ideas? Is spirituality the preserve of the religious? Are there any truths you would rather not know? Would you want to see the end of faith? These are all questions that the ‘four horsemen’ of New Atheism, four big thinkers of the twenty-first century, discussed after meeting in person only once. Their electrifying examination of ideas on this remarkable occasion was intense and wide-ranging. Everything that was said as they agreed and disagreed with one another, interrogated ideas and exchanged insights – about religion and atheism, science and sense – speaks with urgency to our present age. The dialogue was recorded, and is now transcribed and presented here with new introductions from the surviving three horsemen. With a sparkling introduction from Stephen Fry, it makes essential reading for all their admirers and for anyone interested in exploring the tensions between faith and reason. Don't miss OUTGROWING GOD by Richard Dawkins, out now . . .

A powerful polemic on the major threats facing the world today and how they can be overcome. Our world is facing catastrophes of many kinds, from the climate crisis to global outbreaks of deadly diseases. But could we look back at the collapse of previous civilisations to see what lessons might be learned? The explorer and campaigner Robin Hanbury-Tenison believes we urgently need to tackle the four harbingers of catastrophe: The White Horse of Pestilence and Pandemics – many remote tribal societies have lives that are healthier than ours – what can we learn from them? The Red Horse of War – can we avoid conflict through promoting prosperity and renewable energy for all? The Black Horse of Famine – is now the time to use technology we’ve had since World War II to influence the weather? The Pale Horse of Death – will geoengineering help to undo the appalling pollution we are inflicting on the planet, especially the oceans? The lessons of Taming The Four Horsesmen are clear: if we humans are to survive we need to make transformative changes now.

Many authors have seen the Great War through the eyes of their own country. Senor Ibanez seems to see it through eyes that are world-wide in their sweep and with a mind that is very human and pitiful in its comprehension of the suffering and the heroism. 'The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse' is a great novel, one of the three of four outstanding novels of the war. It is rich and varied in scene, human in its characterizations, interesting throughout, and, above all, refreshingly straightforward and conclusive on the subject of the Germans and their methods of warfare.

Europe experienced great turmoil between the fifteenth and seventeenth centuries. Bitter religious conflicts, war and other disasters such as plague and famine generated deep anxieties and were increasingly read as divine punishments or warnings that the Last Days were imminent. Artists gave expression to these fears in a range of extraordinary images that are analysed in depth in this publication. Illustrations of the Apocalypse, as well as images of skeletons personifying Death, and of physically deformed creatures, extreme natural phenomena and diabolical witches were all manifestations of the sense of impending social and religious crisis. Lavishly illustrated with works by artists including Albrecht Drer, Jacques de Gheyn II and Stefano della Bella, The Four Horsemen: Apocalypse, Death and Disaster provides a fascinating insight into the art, culture and turbulent times in later medieval, Renaissance and early modern Europe.

Tour guide Alvise Marangon thinks he knows Venice better than ever, but now finds himself ensnared by mysteries as obscure as the city and in many cases just as old. Certain that he is finally about to have his guide’s license revoked after a tavern brawl, Alvise is instead dragooned into the service of Missier Grande, who has linked the death of one of his agents to a secret society known as the Four Horsemen. Every attempt that Missier Grande makes to investigate the matter is blocked by forces on high, and enlisting Alvise is a move of last resort—one last-ditch effort to uncover the crimes of the present in the secrets of the past before the future claims more lives. Among the dark arcades and fetid canals of 18th century Venice, Alvise is the one who finds himself led on a tour, at any turn of which could lie a fresh corpse or an ancient conspiracy.

A deeper look at the issues raised by the acclaimed Four Horsemen film. As the global economy veers from crisis to catastrophe, people have finally had enough. Billions are denied effective access to an economy that has been hijacked by vested interests. The people who caused the financial crisis suffer no loss, while the innocent majority see their living standards fall, or pay with their jobs. But it doesn't have to be like this. By equipping ourselves with a better understanding of the crisis and its root causes in a fatally flawed economic system, not only will we be better prepared for the challenges ahead, but we will also find the motivation to work towards real change. The Survival Manual points the way to a saner future. The need for change has never been more urgent, but the conditions have never been more favourable. With hope and belief we can build a better world, and create a civilization fit for human beings.

The image of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse in Revelation 6:1-8 is one of the most vivid and powerful in all the writings of the prophets. Their presence speaks of a coming day of horror - the first four judgments of the tribulation. White, red, black, and pale, they will wreak destruction around the world. Prophecy expert Mark Hitchcock takes an in-depth look at the horsemen and shows how today's events point toward the prophecy about them.

The apostle John saw a vision of four horses (white, red, black, and pale) galloping across the world in the end times, leaving unbelievable destruction in their wake. The chilling imagery of that vision has gripped believers for over two thousand years. The purpose of the book is to take an in-depth look at these four mysterious horsemen and show how their approach seems to be developing before our eyes, signaling the advent of that terrible seven years known as the Great Tribulation. The four horsemen are symbolic of great movements that will mark the onset of that climactic era in history. From the Trade Paperback edition.

The original Spanish plus English translation of classic novel, which was a best-seller in the US in 1919. According to Wikipedia: "Vicente Blasco Ibáñez (29 January 1867 – 28 January 1928) was a Spanish realist novelist writing in Spanish, a screenwriter and occasional film director. Born in Valencia, today he is best known in the English-speaking world for his World War I novel Los cuatro jinetes del apocalipsis. Filmed in 1921 as The Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse, it was filmed again in 1962, reset in World War II. However, in his time he was a best-selling author inside and outside of Spain, and also known for his controversial political activities. While Sangre y arena (Blood and Sand) and Los cuatro jinetes del apocalipsis are his most popular novels, particularly outside of Spain, his Valencian novels such as La barraca and Cañas y barro are the ones most valued by scholars."

In lucid and energised prose, Emily Mayhew summons the four horsemen of the apocalypse; the collective threat to humanity bearing the names of war, pestilence, famine and death. From their first appearance in Revelations they have remained in human consciousness ever since, spanning time and space and evolving as new scientific discoveries and advancements in technology alter the world. The Four Horsemen examines in detail the four afflictions faced by humanity throughout history and shows, that despite our pessimistic view of the future there are people from all walks of life - scientists, doctors, engineers, biologists, statisticians, app developers, historians, NGOs and volunteers - who are making the world a safer place. The line stretches all the way round the world and its strength comes from common purpose. They seek to save us through some of the most inspiring and exciting human endeavours ever undertaken. Every day they dare to hope that beyond them lies a new age. They are the most extraordinary alliance ever to have come together in defence of our humanity. From the international agencies that stepped in to take the place of the International Red Cross during the liberation from Isis of Mosul, the need to find new sources of antimicrobial medicines to take the place of antibiotics, the laboratory work being taken to protect crops from disease, the innovations we have seen in preventing the spread of deadly virus like Ebola, to the preservation and identification of the dead after natural disasters like the tsunami that overtook Indonesia in 2004, Mayhew shows why we can have hope for the future.

This novel by Vicente Ibanez follows the life of a Frenchman, Marcelo Desonyers, from his travelling youth until the chaotic maelstrom that was World War I. Published in 1916 as the horrific carnage of the First World War held much of Europe in its clutches, this novel is a family saga which begins decades earlier in 1870. Marcelo Desonyers makes the lengthy voyage to faraway Argentina, where he marries a young woman of the landowning Madariaga family. The bulk of the novel is focused upon the lives and fate of the family once they travel back to Europe and World War I nears. They are wealthy and live in an opulent district of Paris, but are disappointed by their younger son Julio who matures to become a philanderer who shirks his responsibilities. When the war arrives, the lives and fates of the Desonyers clan are impacted greatly, with the carnage wrought upon France detailed in all its grisly horror. Powerfully and demonstratively, Ibanez shows how war can assume the role of the titular 'Four Horsemen'; wreaking an apocalyptic fate upon those who suffer under it.
