    What does it mean to say that we live in a secular age? Almost everyone would agree that we - in the West, at least - largely do. And clearly the place of religion in our societies has changed profoundly in the last few centuries. In what will be a defining book for our time, Charles Taylor takes up the question of what these changes mean - of what, precisely, happens when a society in which it is virtually impossible not to believe in God becomes one in which faith, even for the staunchest believer, is only one human possibility among others.

    As the two largest, most powerfully equipped naval fleets in history move slowly toward each other near Islas Piedras - an American missile site in the Indian Ocean that threatens Russia's grip on the Middle East - two men stand in the darkened control rooms of their ships. David Charles and Alex Kupinsky are worried because, as the admirals of these fleets, they may be responsible for all-out nuclear war. They are also concerned because once, a long time ago, they were the best of friends.

    In Modern Social Imaginaries, Taylor continues his recent reflections on the theme of multiple modernities. To account for the differences among modernities, Taylor sets out his idea of the social imaginary, a broad understanding of the way a given people imagine their collective social life. Retelling the history of Western modernity, Taylor traces the development of a distinct social imaginary.

    Twenty years ago, the KGB planted an agent in the American Navy. Today, he is the commander of an American nuclear attack submarine! Wayne Newell is all navy, all American, all traitor. He's convinced his crew that the world is at war - and that the Russians have a deadly masking device that makes Soviet submarines sound exactly like the most crucial ships in the American fleet: the nuclear-powered ballistic missile submarines known as Boomers.

    When we think of '70s cinema, we think of classics like The Godfather and Taxi Driver...but the riches found in the overlooked B-movies of the time, rolled out wherever they might find an audience, unexpectedly tell an eye-opening story about post-Watergate, post-Vietnam America. Revisiting the films that don't make the Academy Award montages, Charles Taylor finds a treasury many of us have forgotten, movies that in fact "unlock the secrets of the times".

    I wanted to write a book that makes people laugh when they read about Stoicism. Comedy is an important way of revealing truth to us in its different forms. I also wanted to educate people about Stoicism while comparing it to other philosophies or topics or things in a tongue-in-cheek way.

    Admiral Theodore Magnuson, director of the Office of Naval Intelligence, didn't like the idea of sending the Seventh Fleet to Vladivostok for a New Year's celebration with the Russians. The president didn't give a damn what Magnuson thought, however; he was after détente. Fearing the worst, Magnuson decides to run his own intelligence mission, sending men into Russia and China. The admiral is certain the US visit to the usually closed Soviet port is a cover for something. Something big.
