First published by Simon & Schuster in 1993 and then by Continuum in 1998, Jim Mason's An Unnatural Order has become a classic. Now in a new Lantern edition, the book explores, from an anthropological, sociocultural, and holistic perspective, how and why we have cut ourselves off from other animals and the natural world, and the toll this has taken on our consciousness, our ability to steward nature wisely, and the will to control our own tendencies. Jim Mason writes: "My own view is that the primal worldview, updated by a scientific understanding of the living world, offers the best hope for a human spirituality. Life on earth is the miracle, the sacred. The dynamic living world is the creator, the First Being, the sustainer, and the final resting place for all living beings--humans included. We humans evolved with other living beings; their lives informed our lives. They provided models for our existence; they shaped our minds and culture. With dominionism out of the way, we could enjoy a deep sense of kinship with the other animals, which would give us a deep sense of belonging to our living world. "Then, once again, we could feel for this world. We could feel included in the awesome family of living beings. We could feel our continuum with the living world. We could, once again, feel a genuine sense of the sacred in the world."

It's 1988 and Germany is a country still at war with its own recent history. Australian expat journalist Caroline James, sexually entranced by her German lover, goes to live with him near Stuttgart. But Caroline soon misses the job and London life she gave up to be with Karl, and discovers the darker side of romance with an obsessive man. It also doesn't take long to realise they have little in common beyond mutual sexual passion. So why doesn't she leave? Is there more to her decision to stay, than the lead on a potential news story? A local woman accused of killing her own child seems to be the victim of simmering prejudices until Caroline's research unearths dark secrets from Germany's recent history. Caroline's professional curiosity turns personal as every investigative step she takes drags her deeper into the horrors of the past.
