In a world shrunk by rapid travel, human cultures impinge more and more readily one upon another. These impacts, many of them alien, bring about change and often stir up conflict. The examples given in this book show some of this in operation. Study of such conflicts, to which our own culture has often contributed, can provoke valuable insights into the society in which we live. Contributors include General Sir John Glubb on his life among the Arabs; Robert Cecil on cults in 19th Century Britain; Dr Drid Williams on dance in West Africa.

In the modern world the subject of religion assumes an ever-growing importance, despite a widely held view to the contrary. This collection is the report of a symposium organized by the Institute for Cultural Research and the Institute for the Study of Human Knowledge (USA), designed to bring together the realms of tradition and experience in many aspects of world religion. Representatives of Hinduism, Judaism, Christianity and Islam deal with these faiths, while Zen, Yoga and Christian mysticism are explored by other researchers who have specialized in these fields.
