Description - 3,000 Years of Love by David Loye
3,000 YEARS OF LOVE "In this book I have brought together a private and a public story. Some may say that, as convention dictates, I should have kept the two properly apart. I can only answer that love in its actuality, rather than the pale mirroring usually allowed us, knows no such boundaries. And surely, if ever stories of love were and still are needed, it is in our world today." So begins this remarkable story of the romance, return to Minoan Crete, and adventures in Greece, Italy, Germany, Africa, pioneering involvement in 20th and 21st century science and social action, and award-winning books of Riane Eisler and David Loye. We go behind the international best-seller The Chalice and the Blade, Sacred Pleasure, The Real Wealth of Nations and her many other books into the drama of the holocaust survivor and thinker who has been called "The New Renaissance Woman" and "One of the most important visionaries of our time." We go behind the award-winning The Healing of a Nation, An Arrow Through Chaos, recovery of "the rest and best" of Darwin's theory of evolution by a noted developer of the new field of evolutionary systems science, and Loye's creative explosion of 20 new books at age 82. This dual-biography provides an unusually inspiring, humorous, and appealing guide to Eisler and Loye's work as writers to globally advance the women's, human rights, civil rights, progressive evolution, and partnership movements globally. "For the word was meant to sing and dance and inspire us to fulfill ourselves, not to lie flat and dead on the page," Loye's Prologue concludes. "And love was meant for the world, not only for oneself and one other alone. And as a link in the chain of being on and on into the future, laughter not sorrow must be our destiny." This is the first book for the Benjamin Franklin Press publication of Loye's three book Love Cycle, with 1001 Days of Love and 100 Days of Love to follow. Cover by Barbara Schaefer and John Mason. Production: Cassandra Gallup Bridge. Back cover photo: Cathleen Roundtree
