The Caretakers Of The Cosmos: Living Responsibly In An Unfinished World
- Paperback - Floris
Why are we here? Human beings have asked themselves this question for centuries. Modern science largely argues that human beings are chance products of a purposeless universe, but other traditions believe humanity has an essential role and responsibility in creation. Lachman brings together many strands of esoteric, spiritual and philosophical thought to form a counter-argument to the nihilism that permeates the 21st century. Offering a radical alternative to postmodern apathy, he argues that we humans are indeed the 'caretakers' of the universe, entrusted with a daunting task: that of healing and repairing creation itself.

City Of Gangs
- Hardback - Hodder & Stoughton
During the 1920s and 1930s, Glasgow gained an unenviable and enduring notoriety as Britain's gang city - the 'Scottish Chicago'. Out of the most dilapidated and overcrowded tenements in Britain stepped young men and women dressed like Hollywood gangsters and their molls. On the city's streets they took centre stage in dramas of their own making, fighting territorial battles laced with religious sectarianism and running protection rackets modelled on those of the American underworld. Drawing on 15 years of original research, Andrew Davies, brings to life the reign of terror exerted by gangs like the Billy Boys, the Kent Star, the Savoy Arcadians and the South Side Stickers.
