When did language emerge? How did our ancestors break out of Africa and defeat the more physically powerful Neanderthals? How did human nature change in the 35,000 years between the emergence of fully modern humans and the first settlements? In the last three years a flood of new scientific findings driven by revelations discovered in the human genome has provided compelling new answers to many long-standing mysteries about our ancient ancestors. Nicholas Wade takes readers to the forefront of research in a sweeping and engrossing narrative, the first to reveal how genetic discoveries are helping to weave together the perspectives of archaeology, palaeontology, anthropology, linguistics, and many other fields. Before the Dawn marks a major advance in our understanding of human nature and origins.

"This is the story of how the famous and revered Chief Rabbi of Rome, Israel Zolli, became a Christian and entered the Catholic Church after World War II. Zolli was a world-renowned Jewish leader, respected Scripture and Talmudic scholar, and noted authority on Semitic philology." "This classic work outlines the spiritual journey of Rabbi Zolli, through prayer, meditation on Scripture, and his lived experience, from devout Judaism to ardent Catholicism. He tells how he did not abandon his Jewish heritage; rather, he discovered the fullness of what God offered in Jesus and His Church. Zolli took the Christian name of Eugenio to honor Pope Pius XII (Eugenio was his baptismal name) for all he did to save the Jews during the war." "Before the Dawn covers highlights of his spiritual journey and includes some marvelous insights by Rabbi Zolli on Judaism, mysticism, the Law, and the Gospel. Zolli speaks of his journey not as a betrayal of the Synagogue but as a completion and fulfillment. He describes himself as becoming a "completed Jew" by recognizing Jesus Christ ("Rabbi Yeshua") as the Messiah and joining His Church. Zolli offers unique insights on the continuity between the Synagogue and the Catholic Church and many interesting insights into the Scriptures - including the New Testament - from an Orthodox Jewish perspective."--BOOK JACKET.

The controversial autobiography of the man at the heart of Irish Republican politics. Sinn Fein leader Gerry Adams offers his own unique, intimate account of the early years of his career, from his childhood in working-class Belfast to the more turbulent years of social activism that followed. An engaging and revealing self-portrait. Born in West Belfast in 1948 into a family with close ties to both the trade union and republican movements, his childhood, despite its material poverty, he has described in glowing and humorous terms. For many years his voice was banned from radio and television by both the British and Irish governments, while commentators and politicians condemned him and all he stood for. But through those years Brandon published a succession of books which made an important contribution to an understanding of the true circumstances of life and politics in the north of Ireland. In his autobiography, Before the Dawn, Gerry Adams brings a unique perspective to the years of conflict, insurrection and bitter struggle which ensued when peaceful political agitation was met with hysterical reaction and the sectarian tinderbox of Britain's last colony erupted. From the pogroms of 1969 to the hunger strikes of 1981, from the streets of West Belfast to the cages of Long Kesh, his powerful memoir is essential reading for anyone wishing to understand modern Ireland.

Sunshine Before the Dawn by Judy Satori June 2012 ISBN 978-0-9856730-0-0 Sunshine Before the Dawn reads and appears like work of fiction, but it’s not! The author, Judy Satori is an energy healer and spiritual teacher. She speaks and transmits a higher-dimensional Language of Light. For many years she has worked with beings from other worlds and other dimensions of reality and it is they who have telepathically transmitted this inter-dimensional love and adventure story. Chapter one begins around one hundred thousand years ago, as the Galactic Council of our Milky Way Galaxy meet on the star Antares to discuss a problem concerning Earth. They are concerned that the beings of Earth cannot move beyond their third dimensional confinement, and so evolve in consciousness. They propose that an upgraded version of the human being be created, with each of the Star Nations within the 12 dimensions of what is known as the lower heavenly worlds, contributing an aspect of their genetic code to the new hu-man. ‘Hu’ is a sound that means God and it is determined by the Galactic Council that the new hu-man being of the Earth be a spiritual being, to be given the genetic capacity to one day evolve to move beyond the physical confinement of Earth, and traverse all 12 dimensions of reality in what is called the lower heavenly worlds. A woman from the Galactic Council, Essayenya from the star Sirius, is tasked with the responsibility of working together with a team from Sirius and Lyra, as well as with the Elohim, the creator aspect of God, to create the new prototype hu-man to be seeded on the Earth. Essayenya, from fifth dimensional Sirius is in love with Mosteenya, the leader of the Galactic Council, from 12th dimensional Lyra, but because of the differences in vibration between these two dimensional worlds they seem destined to remain apart. Essayenya and others of her team from Sirius, journey to Lyra to work together with the Lyran women, who weave the Dreamtime Strands of Creation. They are to decide how the new hu-man should best be created. Romance blossoms between Essayenya and Mosteenya, but it seems they can never be together, unless Essayenya comes to Earth, to take into her own soul DNA the new hu-man genetic code. This story has been brought through from higher-dimensional spiritual beings at this time to help us all understand our Lineage of Light, and that we all came here from the stars. All human beings on the Earth now hold the more advanced 12 strand DNA hu-man genome that was created around 100,000 years ago. This DNA capacity has until now only been potential. It was not able to be activated while the Earth remained within a third dimensional energy domain. However, it has long been prophesized that in December 2012, the Earth will be advanced to a fifth dimensional, faster pulsating consciousness and vibration. This shift in frequency will trigger the activation of previously dormant DNA potential and a massive consciousness upgrade for Earth and her people. As Earth comes of age, we, who once came to Earth from various Star Nations, are being triggered to remember where we came from and why we are here on Earth. As soul DNA memory is reactivated, people everywhere are being empowered to step into greater personal and spiritual mastery and actualize dormant soul potential to together create a new world order of peace and love. Sunshine Before the Dawn is a novel. It is an exciting, action packed mystery and adventure story, but also includes much previously unknown spiritual information. Essayenya, the Siriun leader of the team tasked with creating the new hu-man specie journeys to Earth, to the ancient lands of Atlantis and Mu. There in the sacred place of prayer for the people of Mu, a land deep in the southern seas of the Earth, she is given a ‘key’, spiritual energy words that are only NOW, at the end of four Great Ages of Earth time of around 100,000 years, being triggered to come forth.

The book Before the Dawn, is about the settling of Balkans before recorded history, a possible scenario. Emperor Franz Joseph, of the Hapsburg Empire, said these people were impossible to rule; the answer may well be in the mixture of cultures that made up the area 10,000 years ago when anthropology statesEurope was being settled by the human race. This is the story of these early settlers struggle for survival escaping the ravages of nature as the polar ice cap formed over Sweden and geological upheavals forced the population south. This is also the story taken from ancient writings of the east of a family escaping the annihilation of war. Either there was some truth in the Sanskrit writings, or the author wrote great science fiction. Also I have taken elements from the blind Greek poet, Homer, and his poem on Atlantis. Archeology found the Minoan civilization on Crete due to his description, so there is likely truth in the other poem. Science states that we use only a fraction of the human brain capacity, that we have lost the use of the brains full capacity. In such case, our ancient ancestors must surely have had its function. There are, scattered over Europe, small clans that lay claim to those powers; they have no written language so no verification. This is the basis of the novel Before the Dawn

It describes the organizational structure of the people and the activities they were engaged in; activities like farming, construction of the houses, marriage ceremony, naming ceremony, funeral ceremony, initiation ceremonies (into adulthood or into the prestigious nze na ozo society), the people’s religious practices, festivals, beliefs and taboos, people’s pastimes, medical services etc. It documents what life was like before the dawn of civilization. It is not a history book but it aims to capture some of the disappearing practices for the future generation.
