    the Middle East in the 1980s and My Conflict with a Soviet Spy the story of the Ron Evans spy case Eddie Miller based on his adventures in Scandinavia in the 1960s In 1987 he founded the Campaign For Industry to which he was elected Chairman and for which he wrote many pamphlets on the problems of contemporary business His broad experience frequent travels overseas and years of residence in Continental Europe have given him a unique perspective of socio economic issues About The Book Religion in many parts of the world in both politics and personal life for good or ill is now exerting a greater influence than at any time in living memory There is now not merely a cultural religious confrontation between a worldwide Islam and what it sees as an affluent agnostic West but the worrying rise of Christian fundamentalism in the most powerful nation on earth And the latter has its distinctive political agenda Part of this agenda entails a biased approach to the Israeli Palestinian issue but the most significant aspect of all religiously inspired politics is self righteousness and the explosive mix which this creates These are situations which could never have been anticipated a generation ago when it was assumed that secularism had displaced the beliefs of the past as any longer of political significance The attitude of many thinking people in Europe and elsewhere is to regard religion with askance whilst looking towards the growth of a greater secularism in resolving difficult issues But such an approach is not an option Religion is a natural component of human nature and is unlikely to be eradicated through modernism Nonetheless it is necessary to distinguish between the benign and malign aspects of religion and those of the different churches Through surveying the traditions

    married with three grown up boys His book The Liberal Delusion examines liberalism in the light of recent scientific discoveries and argues that liberalism s core belief in human goodness is false unscientific and harming society His conclusion is that society has become too liberal and that we urgently need to reappraise liberalism and separate out the positive such as the commitment to greater social justice from the negative excessive freedom and loss of morality About The Book Is western civilisation based on a mistaken understanding of humanity Fundamental to any society is its comprehension of human nature It shapes attitudes and policies on a whole range of issues interpersonal relations child rearing discipline and punishment economics and welfare For millennia western societies were based on the idea that human nature is flawed This was turned upside down 300 years ago during the Enlightenment by writers such as Rousseau who argued that we are born good and later warped by parents and society a liberal view of human nature which is now being challenged by scientific discoveries in the fields of the mind the brain and genetics including the Human Genome evolutionary psychology and anthropology This fundamental change has had profound effects If we are essentially good then we can safely maximize freedom and abandon morality religion and tradition Many aspects of life have been liberalised sexual behaviour alcohol consumption censorship gambling divorce laws and economic activity Economic liberals thought free markets were rational and good and favoured minimal government interference and light touch regulations This led to the credit crunch and the greatest financial crisis since World War Two Many parents now hesitate to discipline their own children The belief that we are essentially good but corrupted by society has also influenced penal policy Liberals see criminals as victims

    uses his extensive knowledge in analysing the nature of women and how they are to be differentiated from men in society throughout history His scientific conclusions which are backed up by a close study of the interaction of men and women in society lead him to make a passionate plea for the greater representation of women in all spheres of public life in ensuring greater peace and stability for the future of our now fragile world About The Book This book is a road map for human survival from a scientific perspective A sense of responsibility for future generations is essential and our aim should be to avoid unnecessary war human suffering and further harm to the environment Male aggression and arrogance have been allowed to hold women in subjection for too long and this has led to untold disasters in history The first culprit is to be found in the Y gene for masculinity and male hormones responsible for the more regrettable gender characteristics Over a long period selection pressure seems to have favoured a deranged form of evolution which has been responsible for male brutality and encourages confrontational situations to mutate into armed conflict with tragic consequences for us all In contrast crucial genetic hormonal and brain differences with the added factors of pregnancy lactation and child rearing have made women not superior to men but quite different Hence the civilizing influence of women may be our only hope in the future In 2 3 decades with more women in top jobs in politics and business we may be able to divert successfully resources from war to peace and global security The beating of swords into ploughshares has always been the ideal of humanity but now at last science and the transformation of social values may achieve what
