Explanation of the Book:

The titling of this book - "Facing Reality" - came to me unbidden, presumably from my subconscious! But, when it came, it seemed to be right, because that essentially is what I am trying to do in this book. " Facing" is to be understood in the sense of "looking at in a steadfast and unflinching manner". It thus contrasts with "Confronting" which has the sense of "looking at with hostility and defiance". As I face life with its joys and its sorrows, its successes and its failures, its peace and its turmoil, my attitude is one of serene acceptance and gratitude and not one of angry and arrogant confrontation and rejection. The other component of the title - "Reality" - is the ultimate reality for each of us as conscious beings - our birth - our self-hood in its long stream of becoming throughout our life - our death and apparent annihilation. This is the Reality that we each of us must face if we are to live and adventure as free and responsible beings and not as mere playthings of chance and circumstance, going through a mean ingless farce from birth to death with the search ever for distraction and self-forgetfulness. As a brain scientist I have specialist knowledge of that wonderful part of the body that is alone concerned in the whole Iife-Iong interplay between the conscious self and the extern al world, including other selves.

Explanation of the Book:

Written in collaboration with Cornelius Castoriadis and Grace Lee, James examines the practical process of social revolution in the modern world. Inspired by the October 1956 Hungarian workers' revolution against Stalinist oppression, as well as the wildcat strikes of U.S. workers (against Capital and the union bureaucracies), James and his co-authors looked ahead to the rise of new mass emancipatory movements by African Americans and anti-colonialist/anti-imperialist currents in Africa and Asia. Virtually alone among the radical texts of the time, Facing Reality, first published in 1958 by Marty Glaberman, rejected modern society's mania for "conquering nature," and welcomed women's struggles "for new relations between the sexes." A true masterpiece, and still one of the finest expositions of workers' self-emancipation around. This new 21st-century edition includes a new introduction by James's longtime friend, John H Bracey, situating the book in its 1950s/60s context, and accentuating its continued relevance in our time.

Explanation of the Book:

This book is born of my desire to summon us to be leaders for this time as things fall apart, to reclaim leadership as a noble profession that creates possibility and humaneness in the midst of increasing fear and turmoil. I know it is possible for leaders to use their power and influence, their insight and compassion, to lead people back to an understanding of who we are as human beings, to create the conditions for our basic human qualities of generosity, contribution, community and love to be evoked no matter what. I know it is possible to experience grace and joy in the midst of tragedy and loss. I know it is possible to create islands of sanity in the midst of wildly disruptive seas. I know it is possible because I have worked with leaders over many years in places that knew chaos and breakdown long before this moment. And I have studied enough history to know that such leaders always arise when they are most needed. Now it's our turn.

Explanation of the Book:

The charges of white privilege and systemic racism that are tearing the country apart fIoat free of reality. Two known facts, long since documented beyond reasonable doubt, need to be brought into the open and incorporated into the way we think about public policy: American whites, blacks, Hispanics, and Asians have different violent crime rates and different means and distributions of cognitive ability. The allegations of racism in policing, college admissions, segregation in housing, and hiring and promotions in the workplace ignore the ways in which the problems that prompt the allegations of systemic racism are driven by these two realities. What good can come of bringing them into the open? America’s most precious ideal is what used to be known as the American Creed: People are not to be judged by where they came from, what social class they come from, or by race, color, or creed. They must be judged as individuals. The prevailing Progressive ideology repudiates that ideal, demanding instead that the state should judge people by their race, social origins, religion, sex, and sexual orientation. We on the center left and center right who are the American Creed’s natural defenders have painted ourselves into a corner. We have been unwilling to say openly that different groups have significant group differences. Since we have not been willing to say that, we have been left defenseless against the claims that racism is to blame. What else could it be? We have been afraid to answer. We must. Facing Reality is a step in that direction.

Explanation of the Book:

Facing Reality is written to young adults addressing the issues of relationships and giving a guide towards marriage based on Christian principles. It exposes the prejudices perpetrated by youth custodians who claim to have all it takes to groom and nurture young adults into productive and effective citizens yet avoiding the issues that are at the epicentre of their wellbeing and relationships. Issues like pervasions and promiscuity that result in undesired relationship outcomes are discussed. The Christian Church is reminded of its role and the community is put in its place in addressing these woes. Facing Reality exposes the reality of relationships to young people of this century and addresses this reality in an open way.

Explanation of the Book:

Excerpt from Facing Reality In the following pages I have tried to show the danger in which our civilisation stands owing to its neglect of reality. Our advance in mechanical power during the last century and a half has transformed the conditions of human life. Its ever increasing pace and complexity call for a corresponding advance in mental and social organisation. No such advance has been made or even seriously attempted. We have gone on feverishly improving the machines and leaving the rest to chance; in consequence, our increased powers have been turned to wasteful and mutually destructive purposes. We have the power to smash civilisation to pieces and both in the international and domestic spheres are preparing to use it, for want of a sane attempt to order our affairs to the best advantage. I have first tried to show the nature and unique urgency of the crisis through which civilisation is passing. I have next traced its development out of the failure of mankind to adapt itself mentally to its advance in physical power. In default of any rational effort to control the situation, free play was given to an anarchy of egotisms, private and national, which not only dissipated the hard-won spoils of nature but actually turned them to a fearful menace.
