This Light in Oneself: True Meditation

These selections present the core of Krishnamurti's teaching on meditation, taken from discussions with small groups, as well as from public talks to large audiences. His main theme is the essential need to look inward, to know ourselves, in order really to understand our own--and the world's--conflicts. We are the world, says Krishnamurti, and it is our individual chaos that creates social disorder. He offers timeless insights into the source of true freedom and wisdom.

Jiddu Krishnamurti (1895-1986) was one of the most influential spiritual teachers of the twentieth century. He traveled and lectured throughout the world until his death at the age of ninety. His talks and works are preserved in more than seventy books.

Favela Media Activism: Counterpublics for Human Rights in Brazil

What explains the engagement of low-income young people in media initiatives for political mobilization and social change in everyday life? Favela Media Activism: Counterpublics for Human Rights in Brazil responds to this question using an in-depth ethnographic and interdisciplinary study about the trajectories in media activism among young residents of low-income and violence-ridden favelas in socially unequal Rio de Janeiro. Leonardo Custodio provides multifaceted analyses of how favela youth engage in individual and collective media activist initiatives despite social class constraints and neoliberal imperatives in their everyday life. This book details processes experienced by young favela residents while becoming individuals who act to challenge and change patterns of discrimination, governmental neglect and drug-related violence. It is an important resource for scholars interested in the nuances of political engagement among marginalized youth in today's world of hyper-connectivity, information abundance, and the persistence of racial and social inequalities.

This book is a refreshingly original contribution to our understanding of communication for social change. It highlights the complex relationships between context and communication, theory and practice, the challenges faced by favela media activism informed by acute observations of structures, the nature of marginality, the exercise of dominance, and the power and creativity of counterpublics to create communication environments of their choice.--Pradip Ninan Thomas, University of QueenslandLeonardo Custodio's Favela Media Activism is an in-depth study of media use, everyday life, and political agency. Custodio's research embraces the complexities of political action, exploring diverse individual personal histories, mainstream media, on-line and off-line media practices, and media pedagogies. His approach is laudable for the ways it emphasizes the multiplicity and complexity of social processes of change without fragmenting social reality into isolated segments.--Clemencia Rodriguez, Temple University

Abandoned Wrecks (Abandoned Places series)

From ships left high and dry after the Tohoku Tsunami in 2011 to Titanic at the bottom of the Atlantic, from a rusting railway graveyard in Bolivia to abandoned World War II cars in a Belgian forest, from aircraft frozen in time in Antarctica to medieval battleships in English estuaries, Abandoned Wrecks explores 150 fascinating sites from all around the world and across centuries of history. Aside from the peculiar beauty of rusting hulks on forgotten battlefields, anemone- covered battleships on the seabed and cars being consumed by forests, the images and text introduce us to unusual stories: a vintage motor parts company that gave up reconditioning cars when they realized that their collection was more attractive as a museum, a downed American bomber from the Vietnam War that rests like a memorial in the middle of a Hanoi lake, Soviet submarines abandoned after the end of the Cold War rusting in an Arctic base. With 150 outstanding colour photographs of cars, trains, ships, submarines, tanks, aircraft and space shuttles, Abandoned Wrecks is a brilliant pictorial work showcasing these battered time capsules and their stories of wars, natural disasters, changing fortunes, tastes and fashions.

The Politics of the Past in an Argentine Working-class Neighbourhood (Anthropological Horizons)

The Argentine dictatorship of 1976 to 1983 set out to transform Argentine society. Employing every means at its disposal - including rampant violation of human rights, union busting, and regressive economic policies - the dictatorship aimed to create its own kind of order. Lindsay DuBois's The Politics of the Past explores the lasting impact of this authoritarian transformative project for the people who lived through it. DuBois's ethnography centres on JosIngenieros, a Buenos Aires neighbourhood founded in a massive squatter invasion in the early 1970s, and describes how the military government's actions largely subdued a politically engaged community. DuBois traces how state repression and community militancy are remembered in Joe Ingenieros and how the tangled and ambiguous legacies of the past continued to shape ordinary people's lives years after the collapse of the military regime. This rich and evocative study breaks new ground in its exploration of the complex relationships between identity, memory, class formation, neoliberalism, and state violence.

Lindsay DuBois is an assistant professor in the Department of Sociology and Social Anthropology at Dalhousie University.

Embodied Hope: A Theological Meditation on Pain and Suffering

"This book will make no attempt to defend God. . . . If you are looking for a book that boasts triumphantly of conquest over a great enemy, or gives a detached philosophical analysis that neatly solves an absorbing problem, this isn't it."

"Out of Kapic's own encounter with pain has come a book that reflects deeply on the theological challenges it poses. As a theological meditation, it helps sufferers dispel distorted images of God and gently nudges them to engage in consideration of God's full identification with us in the incarnate Christ to find an existential answer to an existential problem. Pastors ministering to people facing the enigma of suffering will find here a resource that is at once theologically robust and pastorally sensitive."--Simon Chan, Trinity Theological College, Singapore"Here is a rare gift of love to the Christian church--especially for sufferers, their watchers, and all who observe deep pain. Kelly Kapic combines love for Scripture, familiarity with the spiritual masters of the past (Athanasius, Luther, and John Owen, to name but a few), and friendship with contemporary sufferers, together with a gracious sensitivity to the sometimes inscrutable wisdom of God. Kapic's reliable and gently applied theology, married as it is to personal experience, offers exactly what the title suggests: embodied hope."--Sinclair Ferguson, teaching fellow, Ligonier Ministries, author of Deserted by God?"A famous Christian once described preaching as 'truth through personality.' By that definition, Kelly Kapic's new book is powerful preaching indeed. Kapic presents a range of biblical expositions, all filtered through his deeply personal wrestling with the ongoing chronic pain of his wife and some of his other friends. Here is sermonic theology to comfort, console, and fortify your faith."--Wesley Hill, assistant professor of biblical studies, Trinity School for Ministry, Ambridge, Pennsylvania

Catholicism and Politics in Argentina 1810-1960

A study of Catholicism in Latin American politics prior to Vatican II. It examines the role of Catholics and Catholic theology in the development of Argentine political history. The author challenges standard interpretations in asserting that Argentine authoritarianism derives principally from the Enlightenment offshoots of liberalism and popular nationalism. The book argues that the tension between these strains, and a broad humanistic cultural framework informed by the Catholic tradition, helps to explain Argentine political instability, while shedding light on leaders and mmovements, especially Peronism.

The Pastoral Care of Depression: A Guidebook (Haworth Religion and Mental Health)

What is depression, and what are its many and varied types? Who becomes depressed, and how can it be recognized? How can depression be measured, and what are its suicidal potentialities? What are the therapeutic interventions the pastor can use in helping people who are undergoing the pain of depression? The Pastoral Care of Depression: A Guidebook answers these questions and many more. With a focus on the pastor as an instrument of healing in cooperation with families, physicians, and other mental health professionals, this book will help you understand some of the current research and procedures used in helping people suffering from depression.

As the frontline mental health workers in many communities, pastors need confidence, competence, and skill in handling people with emotional problems. As Author Binford W. Gilbert explains, “Depression is among the most treatable of major illnesses. It enters the realm of the spiritual and demands the best of the pastoral leader to guide, assist, and enhance the struggle for peace and soundness of mind and body.” The Pastoral Care of Depression helps caregivers by overcoming the simplistic myths about depressive disorders and probing the real issues. This book covers:

Sylvia Townsend Warner: A Biography

Winner of the John Llewellyn Rhys Prize

'One of the most shamefully under-read great British authors of the past 100 years' Sarah Waters

The poet Sylvia Townsend Warner rose to sudden fame with the publication of her classic feminist novel Lolly Willowes in 1926, but never became a conventional member of London literary life, pursuing instead a long writing career in her own individualistic manner. Cheerfully defying social norms of the day, Warner lived in an openly homosexual relationship with the poet Valentine Ackland for almost forty years. Together, they were committed members of the Communist party and travelled twice to Spain during the Civil War, but Warner paid for her outspokenness with years of neglect, and channelled much of her emotional and intellectual energy into letters, poems and heart-breaking diaries that remained unpublished during her lifetime. In this enthralling and enlightening biography, Claire Harman tells the story of Warner's remarkable life and restores her to her rightful place as one of Britain's most unique and brilliant writers.

"As passionate and truthful, elegant and enchanting as its subject." George D Painter

"Harman skilfully weaves Sylvia's stories and letters into the biography, and the brilliance of the samples on display constantly takes you aback... Outstanding" Sunday Times

More Statistical and Methodological Myths and Urban Legends

This book provides an up-to-date review of commonly undertaken methodological and statistical practices that are based partially in sound scientific rationale and partially in unfounded lore. Some examples of these “methodological urban legends” are characterized by manuscript critiques such as: (a) “your self-report measures suffer from common method bias”; (b) “your item-to-subject ratios are too low”; (c) “you can’t generalize these findings to the real world”; or (d) “your effect sizes are too low.”

What do these critiques mean, and what is their historical basis? More Statistical and Methodological Myths and Urban Legends catalogs several of these quirky practices and outlines proper research techniques. Topics covered include sample size requirements, missing data bias in correlation matrices, negative wording in survey research, and much more.

Troll Wall

Norway, 1965. A team of young climbers from the north of England camp at the bottom of the tallest vertical rock face in Europe - the Troll Wall. No one has dared attempt this gigantic challenge before. Some say it will never be climbed. This will be the adventure of a lifetime. Rain and snow soak them as they climb. Avalanches and loose rock threaten their lives. A Norwegian team arrives to compete for the glory as the world's media look on. Pushed to the limits of exhaustion, the team spends days on the wall, refusing to given in, even when failure seems certain. "Troll Wall" tells the gripping story of one of the most dramatic first ascents in British climbing history. Written days after their success, almost half a century ago, and newly rediscovered, Tony Howard's account is a fascinating insight into the challenges of climbing a big mountain wall.

The Dads & Daughters Togetherness Guide: 54 Fun Activities for Fathers and Daughters

Fathers know that doing things with their daughters is important. Shared activities build trust and self-esteem, show how much dads care, and allow everyone to cut loose and have fun. But even fathers who can beat the generation and gender gaps that make them feel awkward can't always dream up cool places to go or mutually enjoyable things to do. Like the coach of their favorite team, dads need a game plan, and that's exactly what Joe Kelly provides in Dads & Daughters Togetherness Guide.
Appropriate for girls of any age, the guide enables dads to grab their daughters by the hand and say "Let's go..."
See how things are made: Take a made-in-America tour and see how everything from jumbo jets (Boeing) to chocolate kisses (Hershey's) is produced.
Bake a funny cake: She'll laugh herself silly in the kitchen making Kitty Litter Cake, a German chocolate sheet cake covered with "cat litter" (dyed, crumbled cookies) and topped with miniature Tootsie Rolls.
Take a drive to nowhere: Let the copilot navigate, and leave time for fun stops to poke around in flea markets or join a game of pickup softball for a few innings.
With dozens of other engaging activities--such as creating a daddy-daughter journal, devising secret codes, and exchanging poems--this is the ultimate rain-or-shine resource for developing wonderful parent-child rapport.

In September 1938, Hitler had been in power for more than five years, and had abrogated most of the constraints placed on German militarism by the Treaty of Versailles. Earlier that year he had forced Austria into his Third Reich without a single shot fired, and his sights were set on Czechoslovakia. It was in this climate that a coup was born, led by Lieutenant Colonel Hans Oster of German military leaders, members of the Berlin police, local troop commanders, civil authorities, religious leaders, and a courageous group of resisters who assembled in a mission to unseat, and even kill, Hitler.

The Oster Conspiracy of 1938 mines the cultural and political milieu of post-WWI Europe, the forces and personal histories that motivated the group to such decisive and dangerous action, and the catalyst of their ultimate failure. This is narrative history at its best: revelatory, well documented with archival material, people with a rich cast of characters, fast-paced, and highly provocative.

"Professor Parssinen has achieved a compelling read that is always true to its sources. He tells a fascinating story... skilfully juxtaposing the events of the time" (Winifred Heinemann)"It crackles with page-turning energy that brings events vividly to life" (Washington Post)"Parssinen's dynamic drama presents the plot that could have prevented the descent into world war" (Booklist)"An intriguing study of a plot against Adolf Hitler that might have spared Europe the horror of WWII... the story offers compelling real-life examples of byzantine variables and countless what-if possibilities" (Kirkus Reviews)

Agent Storm: My Life Inside Al Qaeda and the CIA

Morten Storm was an unlikely jihadi. A six-foot-one red-haired Dane, Storm spent his teens in and out of trouble. A book about the Prophet Mohammed prompted his conversion to Islam, and Storm sought purpose in a community of believers. He attended a militant madrasah in Yemen, named his son Osama, and became close friends with Anwar al-Awlaki, the American-born terrorist cleric. But after a decade of jihadi life, he not only repudiated extremism but, in a quest for atonement, became a double agent for the CIA and British and Danish intelligence.
"Agent Storm" takes readers inside the jihadist world like never before, showing the daily life of zealous men set on mass murder, from dodging drones with al Qaeda leaders in the Arabian desert to training in extremist gyms in Britain and performing supply drops in Kenya. The book also provides a tantalizing look at his dangerous life undercover, as Storm traveled the world for missions targeting its most dangerous terrorists, and into the most powerful spy agencies: their tradecraft, rivalries, and late-night carousing, as well as their ruthless use of a beautiful blonde in an ambitious honey trap. "Agent Storm" is a captivating, utterly unique, real-life espionage tale.

"Highly credible. . . .

Creative Group Therapy for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse: An Introduction for Social Work and Health Professionals: Speaking the Unspeakable (Arts Therapies)

'This is a very well written and readable book balancing academic research and practitioner orientation. This balance is seen in the division of this book into two equal parts: "Theoretical Concerns" and "The Practice'. Indeed, Meekums says she had workers in mental health settings in mind when she wrote the book.This book is a good read, but is also much more an informative guide to practitioners interested in understanding more about the therapeutic issues related to sexually abused clients and also a useful resource for those who are looking to set up a group for survivors.'

- Mental Health & Learning Disabilities Care

'This book is a well-structured, sensitive and practical exploration of a multi-method approach to the language of healing. The book offers a springboard for creative thinking. It affirms the transformative power of witnessing and the ability of each survivor to "reclaim her own land". It contains ideas and insights about the survivor's journey from striving to thriving, which will be useful to a range of practitioners whether or not they use group work. For anyone engaged in the latter, this book is a must. I hope that it will also be used by managers and supervisors to appraise treatment resources and professional supervisory needs. In the present climate dominated by the debate about real or false memories, it is a courageous work and does not shirk this issue.'

- Community Care

Bonnie Meekums presents creative groupwork strategies and techniques for professionals working with women who have experienced child sexual abuse. The practical strategies have been developed from an understanding of the complex process of recovery, and are informed by the voices of women who have been abused in childhood themselves.

The book is divided into two parts. The first looks at the theoretical issues, exploring the nature of abuse and patterns of recovery and also considers the debate about `false memory syndrome'. The second part of the book presents practical group strategies, detailing a full sequence of creative exercises for the sessions. The author outlines how to set up the group, how to establish the group and how to manage group endings. The material in the book has been successfully trialled in a variety of professional settings, including a specialist multi-modal arts therapy program with a group of fourteen women.

Creative Group Therapy for Women Survivors of Child Sexual Abuse will enable professionals and students to understand and support women through the difficult process of recovery from childhood sexual abuse.

Concerning Consequences: Studies in Art, Destruction, and Trauma

Kristine Stiles has played a vital role in establishing trauma studies within the humanities. A formidable force in the art world, Stiles examines the significance of traumatic experiences both in the individual lives and works of artists and in contemporary international cultures since World War II. In Concerning Consequences, she considers some of the most notorious art of the second half of the twentieth century by artists who use their bodies to address destruction and violence.The essays in this book focus primarily on performance art and photography. From war and environmental pollution to racism and sexual assault, Stiles analyzes the consequences of trauma as seen in the works of artists like Marina Abramovic, Pope.L, and Chris Burden. Assembling rich intellectual explorations on everything from Paleolithic paintings to the Bible's patriarchal legacies to documentary images of nuclear explosions, Concerning Consequences explores how art can provide a distinctive means of understanding trauma and promote individual and collective healing.

An incredibly ambitious book by one of the world s preeminent art historians. Stiles s work is theoretically sophisticated; the detail through which she speaks is clear evidence of years spent with living artists and archives; and her style and argumentation are accessible, fluid, and engaging. "Concerning Consequences" asserts the importance of seeing artists on their own terms. --Douglas Kahn, University of New South Wales, Sydney""Concerning Consequences" gathers together Stiles s seminal essays on destruction art and trauma. This important and timely collection digs into the darkness that art unearths and reminds us, urgently, that all art now plays out against the backdrop of our impending extinction. --Jack Halberstam, author of The Queer Art of Failure"

The Postconventional Personality: Assessing, Researching, and Theorizing Higher Development (SUNY series in Transpersonal and Humanistic Psychology)

Postconventional stages of personality development involve growth well beyond the average, and have become a rapidly growing subject of research not only in developmental psychology circles, but also in areas such as executive leadership development. The present work is the first to bring together many of the major researchers in the field, showcasing diverse perspectives ranging from the spiritual to the corporate. The contributors present research on essential questions about the existence and prevalence of high levels of personal growth, whether such achievement is correlated with other kind of psychological growth, whether high levels of growth actually indicate happiness, what kinds of people exhibit these higher levels of development, how they may have developed this expanded perspective, and the characteristics of their viewpoints, abilities, and preoccupations. For anyone interested in Ken Wilber's integral psychology as well as those in executive coaching, this volume is an invaluable resource and will be a standard reference for years to come.

This is an excellent resource for those interested in psychometrics collections and in transpersonal/humanistic psychology and life-span development A solid companion to other titles in the SUNY Series in Transpersonal and Humanistic Psychology. CHOICE[This is a convention-breaking book that makes a much-needed contribution to the field. Its varied scholarly chapters explore the far reaches of human growth and potential including the oft-neglected dimension of personality development. Chapters are written by veteran researchers and exemplars in adult development studies. Included are wonderfully creative theoretical explorations on personality development as well as original contributions that push the envelope of spiritual and religious development to unprecedented lengths. ]The Postconventional Personality is an exceptional compilation reflecting years of research on postformal and postconventional development. As the culmination of such research, it should, in turn, challenge all developmentalists to do more, to be bolder, to take risks. This volume will exhort academicians and researchers alike to think more creatively about the limitless possibilities for human development at the postconventional level and beyond. Melvin E. Miller, coeditor of Self and No-Self: Continuing the Dialogue between Buddhism and PsychotherapyThis book is the best place to go for current views on late-stage ego-development theory, practice, and measurement. It clarifies the promise and importance of these methods and models that stem from Loevinger (and H. S. Sullivan), but also explores the limitations and blind spots inherent in these methods. This is an excellent contribution to scholarly literature about the further reaches of human potential. Zachary Stein, Developmental Testing Service""This is an excellent resource for those interested in psychometrics collections and in transpersonal/humanistic psychology and life-span development ...

A Rope - In Case (Lillian Beckwith's Hebridean Tales)

'When I had first come to the Hebrides Morag, my landlady, had advised me always to "take a rope - in case," . . . Over and over I had proved its usefulness. I might need it to catch a calf or a sheep; to carry a bundle of hay to the cow or a can of paraffin from the grocer; to tie a bundle of driftwood I had collected, or a sack of peat; to secure a boat; make a temporary repair to a sagging fence or a halter for a horse . . . Excepting when they were going on holiday or to church, the Bruach crofters were rarely without a length of rope, either coiled around an arm or protruding from a pocket.'

The fourth of Lillian Beckwith's books on her life on Bruach, A Rope - In Case is packed with hilarious stories and delightful characters. Yet it is never sentimental - always observant.

The fourth book in the Hebridean series

Conflict-Related Sexual Violence: International Law, Local Responses

The result of a collaboration between a feminist legal scholar and an anthropologist, Conflict-Related Sexual Violence presents completely original work by anthropologists, international human rights lawyers, legal theorists, political scientists, mental health professionals, and activists who report upon their respective research regarding responses to conflict-related sexual violence in Afghanistan, Bosnia-Herzegovina, Colombia, Haiti, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Somalia, and South Africa. Much more than a series of case studies, though, the bulk of the book addresses the implications of international responses to conflict-related sexual violence through analyses of the gaps between policy and practice with respect to efforts made by international organisations, criminal courts and tribunals to reduce or respond to conflict-related sexual violence. Scholarly, reflective, provocative yet practical and action-oriented, this book exemplifies a visionary blending of analysis, evidence, concepts and programs for ameliorating the lot of those whose lives are framed by war and conflict and the striving to find healing and justice.

"I've learned so much from reading Dewey and St. Germain's wonderfully informed contributors' descriptions, explanations and warnings - about what feminist prosecutorial strategies would look like, about why legal definitions matter, about specific obstacles on the road to formal justice for women survivors of wartime sexual assault. This is a book for anyone who cares about achieving post-war gender justice."

Treating Sex Offenders: An Introduction to sex offender treatment programmes

This book aims to provide an introduction and overview of sex offender treatment programmes, designed for students and practitioners coming to this field. It seeks to describe the development, theoretical underpinnings, treatment goals and operation of cognitive-behavioural and other programmes to an audience unfamiliar with this form of rehabilitation. In addition, it aims to examine the effectiveness of these programmes and the difficulties associated with assessing this, the public response to treatment and also the effects on staff responsible for implementing them. The book is concerned particularly to assess the operation of sex offender treatment programmes in the UK context, considering also the issues associated with implementing programmes developed in other contexts, especially the USA and Canada. It will be of interest to practitioners, particularly those who are beginning work on sex offender treatment programmes, or others (such as health workers, social workers, probation officers) who come into contact with these programmes indirectly.

Although the general public is not widely aware of this trend, American Indian population has grown phenomenally since 1900, their demographic nadir. No longer a vanishing race, Indians have rebounded to 1492 population estimates in nine decades. Until now, most research has focused on catastrophic population decline, but Nancy Shoemaker studies how and why American Indians have recovered. Her analysis of the social, cultural, and economic implications of the family and demographic patterns fuelling the recovery compares five different Indian groups: the Seneca Nation in New York State, Cherokees in Oklahoma, Red Lake Ojibways in Minnesota, Yakamas in Washington State, and Navajos in the Southwest. Marshalling individual-level census data, Shoemaker places American Indians in a broad social and cultural context and compares their demographic patterns to those of Euroamericans and African Americans in the United States.

. . . an important work worthy of scholarly attention. I would highly recommend it to graduate students in demography and to anyone interested in the twentieth-century history of American Indians.

Why Zebras Don't Get Ulcers: Guide to Stress, Stress-related Diseases and Coping ("Scientific American" Library)

Using amusing anecdotes to present the scientific facts of stress, the author explains how the nervous system responds to stress and how stress can affect everything from digestion, circulation and cancer growth to sex, mood and aging. The new, updated version includes chapters on stress and poverty, stress and memory, stress and personality and how to cope with stress.

Why don't zebras get ulcers--or heart disease, diabetes and other chronic diseases--when people do? In a fascinating look at the science of stress, biologist Robert Sapolsky presents an intriguing case: that people develop such diseases partly because our bodies aren't designed for the constant stresses of a modern-day life--like sitting in daily traffic jams or growing up in poverty. Rather, they seem more built for the kind of short-term stress faced by a zebra--like outrunning a lion.

Ready All! George Yeoman Pocock and Crew Racing

In the 1920s, an upstart West Coast college began to challenge the Eastern universities in the ancient sport of crew racing. Sportswriters scoffed at the “crude western boats” and their crews. But for the next forty years, the University of Washington dominated rowing around the world.

The secret of the Huskies’ success was George Pocock, a soft-spoken English immigrant raised on the banks of the Thames. Pocock combined perfectionism with innovation to make the lightest, best-balanced, fastest shells the world had ever seen. After studying the magnificent canoes built by Northwest Indians, he broke with tradition and began to make shells of native cedar.

Pocock, who had been a champion sculler in his youth, never credited his boats for the accomplishments of a crew. He wanted every rower to share his vision of discipline and teamwork. As rowers from the University of Washington went on to become coaches at major universities across the country, Pocock’s philosophy―and his shells―became nationally famous in the world of crew.

Drawing on documents provided by Pocock’s family, photographs from the University of Washington Crew Archives, and interviews with rowers who revered the man, Newell evokes the times as well as the life of this unique figure in American sport.

As a youth in Britain, Pocock learned the rudiments of boat building from his father, who crafted boats for young Etonians. Forced to emigrate by straitened economic conditions, he journeyed to the Pacific Northwest intending to find work as a lumberjack. Fortunately for the University of Washington in Seattle, he was persuaded to establish shop there and began making shells of outstanding quality. They were so good, in fact, that Washington won its first intercollegiate title in 1923, defeating the Eastern teams that had ruled the sport for decades. One of his greatest triumphs occurred in 1936 when the Washington team won an Olympic gold medal in Germany, but he had numerous other successes as both boatman and coach until his retirement in 1963. There are many fine photos, including some of special interest from the 19th century, and a foreword by the coach of Washington's varsity crew. * Publishers Weekly *

Search For The Real Self: Unmasking The Personality Disorders Of Our Age

From the authoritative expert in personality disorders, Search for the Real Self is a thorough dissection of how one’s real self is developed, how it relates to the outer world, and how personality disorders are understood and treated in our modern society.

Personality disorders—borderline, narcissistic, and schizoid—have become the classic psychological disorders of our age. Outwardly successful, charming and powerful, personality-disordered individuals have long confounded their colleagues, family, lovers and employees—as well as mental health professionals. The author helps the reader understand them. After describing how the healthy real self develops and functions, he explains what can go wrong. Drawing on case histories, he shows how the false self behaves in relationships and on the job, and then delineates appropriate treatments, offering real hope for cure.

A prominent psychiatrist, James F. Masterson was born in Pennsylvania and educated at the University of Notre Dame and Jefferson Medical College. As a psychiatrist, Masterson became an authority on the treatment of personality disorders. He founded the Masterson Institute for Psychoanalytic Psychotherapy in 1977 and he wrote seven influential texts during his career. He died in 2010.

Fear and Anxiety: The Benefits of Translational Research (American Psychopathological Association)

Animals, like people, experience fear and avoidance, which can be reliably observed, quantified, and manipulated in almost all species. Remarkably, as this volume demonstrates, the neural circuits responsible for the acquisition and expression of fear are conserved throughout phylogeny from rodents through nonhuman primates to humans. Thus, what is discovered about the neuroanatomy and physiology of fear in a mouse can be usefully "translated" to a human with an anxiety disorder.This breakthrough in both neuroscience and mental health research is detailed in 14 fascinating chapters that coverÂConditioned fear -- Many scientists have convincingly documented that the amygdala is the essential brain structure in an animal's exhibition of conditioned fear, with the hippocampus required for contextual memory of conditioned fear. Though debate continues, other studies show that the anatomic and physiological findings about conditioned fear are robustly applicable to other forms of fear.ÂThe brain structures involved in fear -- The data clearly show that the amygdala is the one area most consistently energized in fear responses of nonhuman and human primates. Patients with anxiety disorders have a lower threshold for amygdala activation than do control subjects; thus, fear cues that do not register an amygdala response in most individuals will do so in anxious patients.ÂStress effects on brain structure -- It is possible that, based on both animal studies and clinical studies of children and adults, chronic exposure to fear may have deleterious effects on the structural integrity of the brain. The hippocampus appears to be particularly vulnerable, though stress damage may also occur in regions of the prefrontal cortex, such as the anterior cingulate. The results of translational research can raise concerns that observed negative changes in animal brains might apply to humans, but they can also suggest advantageous interventions, with both psychosocial and psychopharmacology approaches proving effective in reversing not only anxiety disorders but even some changes in the brain.Best of all, using these scientific models of brain function, we can now see psychotherapy and medication as complementary rather than antagonistic, with each addressing different parts of the same fear circuitry.The synthesis of knowledge in this groundbreaking work will appeal to practitioners and students alike, and justifies the optimism of its distinguished contributors that psychiatric research is at last in an era in which unprecedented insights will be gained and progress made toward better treatments.

Albert of Aachen: Historia Ierosolimitana, History of the Journey to Jerusalem (Oxford Medieval Texts)

The Historia Ierosolimitana, attributed to Albert of Aachen, is the most complete, the most detailed and the most colourful of the contemporary narratives of the First Crusade and the careers of the first generation of Latin settlers in Outremer from 1095-1119. It comprises twelve books, the first six telling the story of the First Crusade through to the capture of Jerusalem in 1099 and its aftermath, and the final six describing the internal and external politics of the crusader states during the first two decades of settlement. Largely neglected by crusades scholarship, this modern edition and translation allows it to be studied alongside better known accounts.

This volume has been prepared from a critical study of all the extant manuscripts, and features the definitive Latin account,with English translation.Edgington supports the translation and text with an authoritative introduction, extensive historical notes and critical study of the work. This volume will alter the focus of crusades studies, generating interest in previously disregarded aspects of crusade and settlement in the first decades of the twelfth century.

The scholarly apparatus is precise, uncluttered and clear; the translation unfussy and accurate; the notes, both literary and historical, are useful and concise. (C.J. Tyerman, The English Historical Review)a wonderful new edition (Jay Rubenstein, Ecclesiastical History)

Cold War Command: The Dramatic Story of a Nuclear Submariner

The part played in the Cold War by the Royal Navy's submarines still retains a great degree of mystery and, in the traditions of the 'Silent Service,' remains largely shrouded in secrecy. Cold War Command brings us as close as is possible to the realities of commanding nuclear hunter-killer submarines, routinely tasked to hunt out and covertly follow Soviet submarines in order to destroy them should there be any outbreak of hostilities. Dan Conley takes the reader through his early career in diesel submarines, prior to his transition to the complex and very demanding three-dimensional world of operating nuclear submarines; he describes the Royal Navy's shortcomings in ship and weapons procurement and delivers many insights into the procurement failures which led to the effective bankrupting of the Defence budget in the first decade of the 21st century. In command of the hunter killer submarines Courageous and Valient in the 1980s, he achieved exceptional success against Soviet submarines at the height of the Cold War. He was also involved in the initial deployment of the Trident nuclear weapon system, and divulges hitherto un-revealed facets of nuclear weapons strategy and policy during this period. This gripping read takes you onboard a nuclear submarine and into the depths of the ocean, and relays the excitement and apprehensions experienced by British submariners confronted by a massive Soviet Navy.

CAPTAIN DAN CONLEY's experience in conventional and nuclear-powered submarines is the core this account. He then become the MOD's Director of targeting for Trident and was a leading policy-maker developing nuclear weapons strategy in the 1990s. CAPTAIN RICHARD WOODMAN is a distinguished maritime historian and author.

The Spanish Flu: Narrative and Cultural Identity in Spain, 1918

Though once relegated to the proverbial dustbin of history, the 1918 Spanish flu epidemic is now widely recognized as the most devastating disease outbreak in recorded history. This cultural history sets out to reconstruct Spaniards' collective experience

'Based on the author's exhaustive research, this book offers a new analysis in English of this tremendous event in Spain, complementary to others that already exist. It centers on cultural narratives, showing how they were structured in response to this great socio-medical crisis, and perfectly links two concepts of epidemic and national identity.' - María-Isabel Porras-Gallo, Professor of History of Science, University of Castile-La Mancha, Spain'This original work takes up a series of long-running questions about modern Spanish national identity as they intersect with the highly mobile, transnational phenomenon of epidemic. While historians of medicine have produced some studies of the relationship between disease and national identity, none until now has dealt with Spain, nor have Hispanists taken note of the role of epidemic as a defining collective national event.' - Sasha David Pack, Associate Professor, Department of History, University at Buffalo-SUNY, USA

Target Tokyo: The Story of the Sorge Spy Ring

From deep within imperial Japan, a Soviet agent smuggled out intelligence that helped the Allies win the war

Richard Sorge was dispatched to Tokyo in 1933 to serve the spymasters of Moscow. For eight years, he masqueraded as a Nazi journalist and burrowed deep into the German embassy, digging for the secrets of Hitler's invasion of Russia and the Japanese plans for the East. In a nation obsessed with rooting out moles, he kept a high profile--boozing, womanizing, and operating entirely under his own name. But he policed his spy ring scrupulously, keeping such a firm grip that by the time the Japanese uncovered his infiltration, he had done irreversible damage to the cause of the Axis.

The first definitive account of one of the most remarkable espionage sagas of World War II, Target Tokyo is a tightly wound portrayal of a man who risked his life for his country, hiding in plain sight.

Gordon W. Prange (1910-1980) was a professor of history at the University of Maryland and a World War II veteran. He served as the chief historian on General Douglas MacArthur's staff during the postwar military occupation of Japan. His 1963 Reader's Digest article "Tora! Tora! Tora!" was later expanded into the acclaimed book At Dawn We Slept. After Prange's death, his colleagues Donald M. Goldstein and Katherine V. Dillon completed several of his manuscripts, including At Dawn We Slept. Other works that Goldstein and Dillon finished include Miracle at Midway; Pearl Harbor: The Verdict of History; December 7, 1941: The Day the Japanese Attacked Pearl Harbor; and Target Tokyo: The Story of the Sorge Spy Ring.Donald M. Goldstein is a retired United States Air Force officer, professor emeritus of public and international affairs at the University of Pittsburgh, where he taught for thirty-five years, a winner of two Peabody Awards, and author of many books. He has also taught at the Air Force Academy, the Air War College, the Air Command and Staff College, the University of Tampa, and Troy State University. He is considered the leading authority on the Pearl Harbor attack. He lives in the Villages, Florida.Katherine V. Dillon (1916-2005) was a chief warrant officer, United States Air Force (retired), and longtime collaborator with Gordon W. Prange and Donald M. Goldstein on their work. She served during World War II and the Korean War. --This text refers to the Audio Cassette edition.

Embodiment: Creative Imagination in Medicine, Art and Travel

Did you know that intentional dreaming has been used to solve life's problems?

Embodiment: Creative Imagination in Medicine, Art and Travel sets out Robert Bosnak's practice of embodied imagination and demonstrates how he actually works with dreams and memories in groups. The book discusses various approaches to dreams, body and imagination, and combines this with a Jungian, neurobiological, relational and cultural analysis. The author's fascination with dreams, the most absolute form of embodied imagination, has caused him to travel all over the world. From his research he concludes that while dreaming everyone everywhere experiences dreams as embodied events in time and space while the dreamer is convinced of being awake; it is after waking into our specific cultural stories about dreaming that the widely differing attitudes towards dreams arise. By taking dreaming reality, not our waking interpretation of it, as the model for imagination, this book creates a paradigm shock and produces methods which can be applied in a wide variety of cultural settings.

Through detailed case studies, professionals and students will find thorough discussions of:

This book discusses a variety of techniques which may be applied by health professionals to their patients and clients. It will also be of particular interest to Jungian and relational psychoanalysts, psychotherapists and clinical psychologists, as well as to artists, actors, directors, writers and other individuals who wish to explore the creative imagination.

The Reception of Darwinism in the Iberian World: Spain, Spanish America and Brazil (Boston Studies in the Philosophy and History of Science)

I Twenty-five years ago, at the Conference on the Comparative Reception of Darwinism held at the University of Texas in 1972, only two countries of the Iberian world-Spain and Mexico-were represented.' At the time, itwas apparent that the topic had attracted interest only as regarded the "mainstream" science countries of Western Europe, plus the United States. The Eurocentric bias of professional history of science was a fact. The seachange that subsequently occurred in the historiography of science makes 1972 appear something like the antediluvian era. Still, we would like to think that that meeting was prescient in looking beyond the mainstream sciencecountries-as then perceived-in order to test the variation that ideas undergo as they pass from center to periphery. One thing that the comparative study of the reception of ideas makes abundantly clear, however, is theweakness of the center/periphery dichotomy from the perspective of the diffusion of scientific ideas. Catholics in mainstream countries, for example, did not handle evolution much better than did their corre1igionaries on thefringes. Conversely, Darwinians in Latin America were frequently better placed to advance Darwin's ideas in a social and political sense than were their fellow evolutionists on the Continent. The Texas meeting was also amarker in the comparative reception of scientific ideas, Darwinism aside. Although, by 1972, scientific institutions had been studied comparatively, there was no antecedent for the comparative history of scientific ideas.

Ghost Empire: A Journey to the Legendary Constantinople

Ghost Empire is a rare treasure--an utterly captivating blend of the historical and the contemporary, narrated by a master storyteller. The story is a revelation: a beautifully written ode to a lost civilization combined with a warmly observed father-son adventure far from home. In 2014, Richard Fidler and his son Joe made a journey to Istanbul. Fired by Richard's passion for the rich history of the dazzling Byzantine Empire--centered around the legendary Constantinople--we are swept into some of the most extraordinary tales in history. The clash of civilizations, the fall of empires, the rise of Christianity, revenge, lust, murder. Turbulent stories from the past are brought vividly to life at the same time as a father navigates the unfolding changes in his relationship with his son.

Byzantium, Constantinople, and Istanbul--a three thousand year story of phantasms and delusions, of invasion, collapse, empire, decay, a tragic continuo of golden and grandiloquent hopelessness, an erotic magic-show poised at the sea-washed edges of Asia and Europe. All of this provides a canvas for Richard Fidler to reconstruct, quite brilliantly, a saga of power and glory that most of us vaguely remember, but few of us have had a chance fully to savor. Now, thanks to the stylish cleverness of an exceptionally curious and talented man, we can feast on what strange magic the city brought--and still brings today--to the world beyond. I am speechless with admiration.--Simon WinchesterFidler's story leaves its readers with a sense of faith in the renewing, illuminating, social powers of historical narrative. The tale of the Ghost Empire has bridged the gap between a father and son, enriching the contemporary world with the echoes of the past. Byzantium never really died. Its labyrinthine--its byzantine--intrigues cast their shadows over the city still.The author navigates fluidly from the city's founding by Constantine, the first Christian ruler, moving on to the significant rule of Justinian and his strong-willed wife, Theodora, construction of the Hagia Sophia, schisms, plagues, Crusades, sieges, and the creation of the 'deep state' that resonates today under Turkey's current authoritarian prime minister. Fidler provides a palpable sense of this glittering city built as 'a mirror of heaven.'

Industrial Efficiency and State Intervention: Labour 1939-1951: Labour, 1939-51

Nick Tiratsoo and Jim Tomlinson describe and assess the Labour Party's development of a policy of improving industrial efficiency. They concentrate on the debates and initiatives of the wartime period and subsequent implementation of policy under Attlee.
The book modifies existing historiography in two ways - it shows that the Labour Party of 1945-51 was concerned mainly with industrial modernization, not with creating the Welfare State, and it tackles the consequently necessary re-evaluation of wider theories about Britain's economic decline.

Counseling Multicultural and Diverse Populations: Strategies for Practitioners, Fourth Edition

The purpose of this book is to expose students of the helping professions, counselors, teachers, college professors, mental health workers, and social workers to the unique characteristics of representative American subgroups and to effectively assist these same professionals as they work with clients and/or students from these populations. These are grouped by race, gender, sexuality, age, physical limitations and lifestyle etc. The author of each chapter is both a trained helping professional and a member of the group in question. This unique combination of qualifications lends both an academic and a personal perspective to the understanding of the populations represented.

"The chapters in this book cover some groups not often covered in diversity writings. Via personal stories, observations, and rich case examples from their own experience, the authors pull the reader in - and help the reader see from new, instructive, and informative perspectives." - L. DiAnne Borders, PhD, Professor and Chair, Department of Counseling and Educational Development, University of North Carolina at Greensboro "This outstanding text provides the mental health practitioner with a comprehensive exposure to the knowledge and cultural characteristics necessary for success in working with diversity. A careful reading of this book Is an excellent base for those who seek to understand and assist members of diverse populations." - Richard M. Canada, EdD, Professor, College of Education, Texas A&M University Corpus Christi

Freud, Psychoanalysis and Death

Was 'death' a lacuna at the heart of Sigmund Freud's work? Liran Razinsky argues that the question of death is repressed, rejected and avoided by Freud, therefore resulting in an impairment of the entire theoretical structure of psychoanalysis. Razinsky supports his claim through a series of close readings of psychoanalytic texts (including not just Freud, but Klein, Kohut, Jung and Lacan among others) that explore psychoanalysis' inattention to this fundamental human concern. The readings are combined to form an overall critique of psychoanalysis - one that remains sympathetic but calls for a rethinking of the issue of death. In presenting a fresh and persuasive interpretation of the Freudian corpus, this book will be of interest to scholars of Freud's thought and psychoanalysis, literary scholars, analysts, clinicians and to all those curious about death's psychic life.

'This is an excellent work of scholarship, both detailed and comprehensive. It enriches our understanding of the complexity of psychoanalytic theory and the meaning of death.' Rachel Blass, Heythrop College, University College London, the British Psychoanalytical Society and the Israel Psychoanalytic Society'This book is a significant and original contribution, one which is thought-provoking and challenging, and it explicitly prepares the way for more successful accommodations of death and finitude in psychoanalytic inquiry.'

Baal's Priests: The Loyalist Clergy and the English Revolution (St Andrews Studies in Reformation History)

The English Civil War was a time of disruption, suffering and persecution for many people, not least the clergy of the established church, who found themselves ejected from their livings in increasing numbers as Parliamentarian forces extended their control across the country. Yet, historians have tended to downplay their suffering, preferring in most cases to concentrate instead upon the persecution suffered by dissenters after the Restoration. Drawing upon an impressive array of sources - most notably the remarkable set of family and parish memories collected by John Walker in the early years of the eighteenth century - this book refocuses attention on the experiences of the sequestered loyalist clergy during the turbulent years of the 1640s and 1650s.The study highlights how the experiences of the clergy can help illuminate events in wider society, whilst at the same time acknowledging the unique situation in which Church of England ministers found themselves. For although the plundering, imprisonment and personal loss of the clergy was probably indicative of the experiences of many ordinary people on middle incomes, the ever present religious dimension to the conflict ensured particular attention was paid to those holding religious office. During the war and interregnum, zealous religious reformers attacked every aspect of established religion, targeting both existing institutions and those who supported them. Clergy were ejected on an unprecedented scale, suffering much violence and persecution and branded as 'malignants' and 'baal's priests'. By re-examining their history, the book offers a balanced assessment of the persecution, challenging many preconceptions about the ejected loyalists, and providing new insights into the experiences and legacies of this influential group.

'Fiona McCall is to be congratulated for producing a perceptive and engaging work examining the English Civil War and, specifically, the suffering of the clergy which occurred during it. ... McCall's monograph is full of extremely rich and detailed analysis of the period ... Her scholarship is characterized by a patient willingness to examine her primary sources and ask astute questions about their character, veracity, and style. Her work brings to life the fact that the English Civil War was a time of terrible suffering, disruption, and persecution, particularly for those royalist clergy who were ejected from their churches.' Sixteenth Century Journal 'This book will be of relevance to anyone interested in the events of the English Revolution and their long-term religious impact on the Church of England. It helps to correct the historiographical bias, which has seen a plethora of studies on the Puritan, Presbyterian, and independent clergy during the Civil Wars and on their fortunes after the Restoration. By putting the experiences of the orthodox, loyalist clergy center stage the author has made a significant contribution to modern scholarship on the seventeenth-century English clergy.' Renaissance Quarterly 'McCall enables us to understand the experience of loyalist ejection as reflected in personal narratives and summarized in statistical analysis. McCall's work is particularly valuable insofar as narratives of parish incumbents and their parishioners have not been combined with secondary research into one full-length historical study.' Anglican and Episcopal History 'In Baal's Priests, Fiona McCall has written a valuable study which will once again direct historians' attentions towards the Walker manuscripts, and in terms of extended quotations from the manuscripts which highlight the variety of information contained within them, McCall's book provides more scope than either Tatham or Matthews. She displays an impressive knowledge of the Walker manuscripts, and spots some nice details amongst them.' Reviews in History 'In Baal's Priests, Fiona McCall has written an important study which will hopefully provoke an interest in the Walker manuscripts. . The book is solidly researched and is written in a style that is both accessible to the academic and general reader. [...] It should be seen as a good introduction to the subject and not the final word on royalism, or the Walker manuscripts.' A Trumpet of Sedition 'McCall's impressive book ... makes a valuable contribution to current scholarship on the formation of political and religious identities in the Civil War.' History 'Fiona McCall has produced an excellent, enthralling and accessible account of the sufferings of loyalist clergy in the English Revolution.' English Historical Review

Operation of Complex Water Systems: Operation, Planning and Analysis of Already Developed Water Systems (Nato Science Series E:)

Most water systems in the industrial regions of the world are already developed. At the same time they are highly complex. This is true with respect to physical configuration, managment, operation, political goals,environmental interactions, etc. Thus the basic systems are already in place. This realization is the starting point for any new water developments and for operation. From this we conclude that whatever we do to meet newexigencies requires an understanding of the presently in-place complex water systems. Their operation is the important thing. And how can we adjust their operation to meet the new demands upon the system? This book deals withcomplex water systems and their operation. Some chapters are highly theoretical while others are rooted in practical applications. How can we an~lyze the operation of a complex water system and determine how its performancecan be improved? Several chapters on mathematical analysis give approaches involving different aspects of this problem. But operation also has political, management, and physical aspects. These problems are addressed inchapters by managers who operate such systems. The main theme of all chapters is how to deal with the different aspects of a complex water system, already in place. We feel the book, in dealing with this question could be astart for new theoretical premises in water planning.

The Quality of Life in Confucian Asia: From Physical Welfare to Subjective Well-Being (Social Indicators Research Series)

For the past three decades, Confucian Asia has been known as a region of wonders. More successfully than any other region in the world, it has expanded its national economies, and integrated those into theglobal economy. To the rest of the world, this region offers the lesson that poor countries, even with limited natural resources, can achieve rapid economic development and social modernization. To this day, policymakers andscholars have focused on the question of why Confucian Asia has prospered, while other regions have not. Consequently, little is known about how such economic expansion and globalization have affected the quality of citizens'lives in the region. This volume, with quality of life in Confucian Asia as its main theme, is the first of its kind seeking to unravel the dynamics and sources of citizen well-being, and to analyze the problems of buildingnations of well-being in this region.

Psychoanalysis, Literature and War: Papers 1972-1995: Papers 1972-95 (The New Library of Psychoanalysis)

Many of the themes which were elaborated in Hanna Segal's earlier work return in this volume of her most recent papers. Two act as connecting strands and give the book its unity: the clinical usefulness of the concept of the death instinct and the relationship between fantasy and reality.

A past mistress at capturing the vitality of the clinical session on the page, Segal shows how the same conflicts between life and death instincts, fantasy and reality, are experienced in the consulting room, reflected in literature, and played out by nations in their attitudes to war.

Edited by John Steiner, this collection of writings by a leading psychoanalytic thinker provides a rich source of clinical insights and challenging theory for all analysts practising today.

Tigers In Combat III: Operation, Training, Tactics: 3

Tigers in Combat Vol 3 closes the gap between the unit histories of volumes 1 and 2 and the technical descriptions in the Jentz and Spielberger books. For the first time, efforts are described in detail of what was taken to create units and what was required to keep the Tiger tank in action regarding handling and operating the vehicle. Other chapters deal with crew training and specific tactical aspects to employ such a heavy tank under all fighting conditions. Further aspects are covered, such as the protection level of the Tiger and reasons for losses - as well as propaganda work with this famous beast. Due to the usage of more than 1,200 photos and drawings, even complex crew tasks and procedures are illustrated in a way that non-Tiger crewmen will be able to comprehend.

As with all the chapters, this one is profusely illustrated with photographs of the vehicles, and I am pleased to say most are 'new to me' … This is an excellent book for those with a passion for the Tiger Tank...Recommended. --Scale Military Modeller InternationalIt's a work of almost biblical scope, and coupled with the previous two volumes, that I really must track down, it makes a complete reference for the legendary Tiger. If you want such a thing, then this is for you, and it'll also keep you busy reading for quite some time. --BritmodellerThanks to Wolfgang Schneider, within these pages is probably all there is to be known about the Tiger tank and, certainly as far as Volume III is concerned, it is a remarkable work of scholarship, a sound and definitive reference, and a very fun read. Five [stars] because I'm not allowed to award six. ***** --Army Rumour Service (ARRSE)

Dancing in the Flames: the Dark Goddess in the Transformation

Dark, earthy, and immensely powerful, the Black Goddess has been a key force in world history, manifesting in images as diverse as the Indian goddess Kali and the Black Madonnas of medieval Europe. She embodies the energy of chaos and creativity, creation and destruction, death and rebirth. Images of Her, however, have been conspicuously missing in the Western world for centuries—until now, when awareness of the Goddess is re-arising in many spheres, from the women's movement to traditional religion, from the new discoveries of quantum physics to the dreams of ordinary men and women. Why now particularly? The answer provided by Marion Woodman and Elinor Dickson is bold and thrilling: the reemergence of the Divine Feminine in our time indicates our readiness to move to an entirely new level of consciousness. The reemerging Goddess calls for a shattering of rigid categories, a willingness to hold opposites without opposition. She calls us to marry reason and order to creativity, and to embrace the chaos that can ultimately lead to wisdom and transformation on personal and global levels.

Pest Management in Soybean

This book is the third in a series of volumes on major tropical and sub-tropical crops. These books aim to review the current state of the art in management of the total spectrum of pests and diseases which affect these crops in each major growing area using a multi-disciplinary approach. Soybean is economically the most important legume in the world. It is nutritious and easily digested, and is one of the richest and cheapest sources of protein. It is currently vital for the sustenance of many people and it will play an integral role in any future attempts to relieve world hunger. Soybean seed contains about 17% of oil and about 63% of meal, half of which is protein. Modern research has developed a variety of uses for soybean oil. It is processed into margarine, shortening, mayonnaise, salad creams and vegetarian cheeses. Industrially it is used in resins, plastics, paints, adhesives, fertilisers, sizing for cloth, linoleum backing, fire­ extinguishing materials, printing inks and a variety of other products. Soybean meal is a high-protein meat substitute and is used in the developed countries in many processed foods, including baby foods, but mainly as a feed for livestock. Soybean (Glycine max), which evolved from Glycine ussuriensis, a wild legume native to northern China, has been known and used in China since the eleventh century Be. It was introduced into Europe in the eighteenth century and into the United States in 1804 as an ornamental garden plant in Philadelphia.

RHETORICAL CONQUESTS (Purdue Studies in Romance Literatures)

This study examines Hernán Cortés, first as the author of Cartas de relación (1519-1526), and then as the protagonist of Francisco López de Gómara's Historia de la conquista de México (1552). It analyzes how these accounts represent his speech acts, including some of his key speeches; how they allow him to define the conquest in different ways to different audiences; and how they represent him as controlling the speech acts of others, most notably those of Moctezuma.

Glen Carman teaches language and literature at DePaul University. His current research focuses on Bartolomé de las Casas, Juan Ginés de Sepúlveda, and the sixteenth-century debates over Spain's wars of conquest.

Young, White and Miserable: Growing Up Female in the Fifties

"Young, White, and Miserable" is a critically acclaimed study that compellingly shows how the feminist movement of the 1960s found momentum in the seemingly peaceable time of the 1950s. Wini Breines explores white middle class America and argues that mixed messages given to girls during this decade lent fuel to the fire that would later become known as feminism. Concluding with a look at the life and suicide of social scientist Anne Parsons, this book is a poignant and important look into conditions that led to the women's movement.

Wini Breines is a professor in the department of sociology and anthropology at Northeastern University. She is coeditor most recently of "Takin' It To the Streets: A Sixties Reader." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The Civil Wars: A Military History of England, Scotland and Ireland, 1638-60

This illustrated military history of the British and Irish Civil Wars offers an integrated account of the conflict that engulfed the kingdoms ruled by Charles I after 1638. On the one hand, it analyzes the interactions between the Stuart kingdoms and compares and contrasts their wartime experiences; while on the other, it outlines the various civil wars which were fought within Scotland, Ireland, and England during the 1640s. This volume, with contributions by nine leading historians of 17th-century Britain and Ireland, explains why Charles I lost the "Wars of the Three Kingdoms" and how the English parliament reduced Ireland and Scotland to its authority after 1649. Throughout it examines how troops were raised, trained, clothed, armed, fed, and paid, the strategies adopted by the protagonists fighting in the various theatres of war, and the tactics used by their generals in combat. What role did siege warfare play in shaping the course of events? What contribution did seapower make to the conduct of the wars on land? What impact did a decade of brutal conflict have on the populations of England, Ireland and Scotland, especially on the women and children? This book is intended for general readership and academic (any course on Stuart history or 17th-century British history for sixth-form students and 1st/2nd-year undergraduates).

The War of 1812 in Wisconsin: The Battle for Prairie Du Chien

In The War of 1812 in Wisconsin, author Mary Elise Antoine brings a little-known corner of Wisconsin's history to life. Prairie du Chien, located just above mouth of the Wisconsin River, was the key to trade on the upper Mississippi. Whoever controlled the prairie commanded the immense territory inhabited by thousands of American Indians--and the fur they traded. When war broke out between the United States and Great Britain in 1812, British and Americans fought to maintain the ever-shifting alliance of the tribes.

This is the story of the battle for the control of Prairie du Chien and the western country, which began many years before the three-day siege in July of 1814 for which the Battle of Prairie du Chien is named. It is also the tale of the people, Euro-American and Native, who lived in pre-territorial Wisconsin and how the contest for control of the region affected their lives and livelihoods. The outcome of the War of 1812 would determine what "manifest destiny" would mean to all who called these lands home.

Of all the theaters of the War of 1812, the upper Mississippi valley undoubtedly has been the least researched. This is not surprising when one considers that it was the most peripheral theater in a war that occurred largely on the peripheries of both the United States and British Canada. Thus, Mary Elise Antoine's highly readable volume is a welcome addition to a growing body of historical literature concerning the conflict. (Patrick J. Jung, The Annals of Iowa, July 2017)

Wilfred Bion: Los Angeles Seminars and Supervision

Wilfred Bion's unpublished lectures at the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute in April in 1967 represent a unique opportunity for students either new to or continuing in the study of Bion's unique psychoanalytic vertex. Here one can both read - and hear - Bion's clear exposition of his clinical and theoretical thinking to an audience of primarily Freudian trained American analysts, most of whom were new to his ideas. Thfirst lecture sets out Bion's ideas on 'memory and desire' in a paper that set the benchmark in the origins of contemporary Kleinian clinical technique. Bion discusses the various factors that facilitate optimal listening receptivity in the analyst, for example how one differentiates the 'K' link vis-a-vis 'transformations in O.' In the second lecture, Bion defined projective identification, container/contained and 'beta elements'- and how these ideas serve as an orienting template for the analyst's understanding of 'proto-mental' states of mind, either in psychotic, borderline or neurotic patients. He clarifies these ideas while engaging with the queries of renowned American analysts, such as Ralph Greenson. In ththird lecture, Bion gives extensive case illustrations of primarily borderline and psychotic patients primarily in terms of work that ushered in a new era of understanding of both borderline and narcissistic pathological organizations. In the final lecture, Bion takes up hallucinatory forms of experience and intersperses his more recent thoughts about the mystic and the Establishment, understanding something of the problematic tensions introduced by the London Kleinians who had in recent years questioned Freud's assumptions about the non-analyzability of the so-called 'narcissistic neuroses.'

'Aguayo and Malin have dug into the past to produce a fascinating insight of a moment in psychoanalytic history. Bion's emigration to America was a geographical expression of his internal journey, and this book captures that inner transatlantic sojourn as he prepared for his expedition. What he searched for was the core to psychoanalytic work, the human functioning out of which a psychoanalyst fashions his specific practice. Bion had begun some years before to think of "intuition" as the required alternative to sense perception, and later he formulated it in his own enigmatic systematised form in Attention and Interpretation. Here he is poised, on a cusp, trying to capture the nature of, and conditions for, psychoanalytic intuition. In these seminars he is both exhorting the practice of intuition over symbolic interpretation, and is at the same time practising something like a spontaneous intuitive grip on his audience as he works. It is full of inconsistencies, mistakes, incongruence, misapprehensions, and above all creative thinking. And perhaps that is the real mixture that makes intuition - in contrast to the formed but distancing effect of his written texts. Of all Bion's later published lectures and seminars this is the prize. It shows Bion struggling to present something really new.'- R.D. Hinshelwood, Fellow of the Royal College of Psychiatrists, Professor of Psychoanalysis at the Centre for Psychoanalytic Studies, University of Essex, and author of Research on the Couch'These lectures capture Bion's thinking at a unique time in his theoretical and personal development and give the reader a firsthand glimpse of his immersion in a new psychoanalytic culture - the community of psychoanalysts in Los Angeles. This book is a fascinating page-turner that recounts through Bion's animated lectures and the audience's responses the story of his American reception in all its richness, controversy and liveliness. These lectures begin by offering a snapshot of a point in the evolution of Bion's idea about the need for the analyst abandoning memory, desire and understanding as essential to analytic technique, which he links to Freud's concept of free floating attention. The talks move on from this engaging start to cover his theory of projective identification, the container/contained and then gradually the introduction of the concepts of reverence, awe, the relationship between his ideas of the "mystic" and the "establishment" that he expanded upon in his later writings.

Reading Goethe at Midlife (Zurich Lectures Series in Analytical Psychology)

The transition from the first and second stages of life (childhood and youth) to its third and final stages (old age and death) is what Jung called the "midlife crisis." This book explores the idea of midlife crisis by means of a close reading of Jung's paper "The Stages of Life." Read in terms of traditional wisdom-literature, this turning-point represents not just a crisis but also a moment of decision, of opportunity, and of hope. Also included is a detailed analysis of one of the late, great poems of Goethe, Primal Words. Orphic, where the author uses Jungian ideas to recover the vital significance of this fascinating and compelling text.

The Privacy of the Self (Maresfield Library)

The first collection of papers showing the development of Masud Khan's thinking over twenty-five years of clinical work.The Privacy of the Self was the first collection of papers shoeing the development of Masud Khan's thinking over twenty five years of clinical work. He was nurtured in the tradition of Anna Freud, John Rickman and D.W. Winnicott, but his contribution to psychoanalytic literature was a distinctive and personal one. What emerges from this book is the natural and private crystallization of his experiences with his patients and teachers.As he says in his preface: 'Psychoanalysis is an extremely private discipline of sensibility and skill. The practice of psychoanalysis multiplies this privacy into a specialized relationship between two persons, who through the very nature of their exclusivity with each other change each other. The first thing I wish to say about my work reported in these papers is that my patients have helped me become and personalize my potential of thought, affectivity and effort into a way of life that I find deeply satisfying. Had I followed another career perhaps my life would have been more dramatic and varied, but certainly not fuller. My relation with my patients has taught me the humility and necessity of the need of the other for one to be and become oneself.'

"Khan's erudition is of a very special kind.He puts his finger on the pulse of the dilemma, crisis or illness of our time, our wish and need to preserve our unique individual selves and our no less urgent wish and need for living in a community with others."--Paula Heimann "International Journal of Psycho-Analysis ""Masud Khan, a psychoanalyst who is renowned for both vivacity and learning....demonstrates his own ability to reach (those characters whom psychiatrists label 'schizoid') and provides a theoretical framework which will be of value to others engaged on the same quest."--Anthony Storr "Times Literary Supplement "-Khan's erudition is of a very special kind.He puts his finger on the pulse of the dilemma, crisis or illness of our time, our wish and need to preserve our unique individual selves and our no less urgent wish and need for living in a community with others.---Paula Heimann -International Journal of Psycho-Analysis --Masud Khan, a psychoanalyst who is renowned for both vivacity and learning....demonstrates his own ability to reach (those characters whom psychiatrists label 'schizoid') and provides a theoretical framework which will be of value to others engaged on the same quest.---Anthony Storr -Times Literary Supplement -

Church Reform in 18th Century Italy: "The Synod of Pistoia, 1786": Volume 29 (International Archives of the History of Ideas Archives internationales d'histoire des idées)

The complete history of J ansenism will probably never be written because to write it would involve the study of a movement that grew and changed constantly for more than two hundred years and found a differentexpression in many countries, especially France, Holland, and Italy. Of course the ordinary Frenchman of any education would think that he knew something about Jansenism. For him, and for many Englishmen of some Frenchculture, Jansenism is a heresy about grace and predestination that found expression in the Augustinus of Cornelius Janssens or Jansenius, Bishop of Ypres and at one time professor in the university of Louvain. 1 Thetheological position of J ansenius was adopted by his friend, Jean Duvergier de Hauranne, commonly known as the Abbe de S. Cyran, a director of the monas­ tery of Port Royal des Champs. Through its relations with S. Cyran andwith Antoine Arnauld, brother of Angelique Arnauld, Abbess of Port Royal, the monastery entered into the theological controversies of the time, especially after Arnauld's severe moral work - De fa Frl­ quente Communion. 2 Butto the ordinary Frenchman, Port Royal, besides its quarrels about predestination, is chiefly memorable for its great literary names, Pascal, Racine, Boileau, and to some extent La Fontaine and Mme de Sevigne. What Jansenismreally stood for and what became of its ideal after the brutal demolition of Port Royal in 1709 by Louis XIV is but little known.

The Crusades, c.1071-c.1291 (Cambridge Medieval Textbooks)

A concise history of the crusades - whose chief goal was the liberation and preservation of the 'holy places' of the middle east - from the first calls to arms in the later twelfth century to the fall of the last crusader strongholds in Syria and Palestine in 1291. This is the ideal introductory textbook for all students of the crusades. Professor Richard considers the consequences of the crusades, such as the establishment of the Latin east, and its organisation into a group of feudal states, as well as crusading contacts with the Muslim world, eastern Christians, Byzantines, and Mongols. Also considered are the organisation of expeditions, the financing of such expeditionary forces, and the organisation of operations and supply. Jean Richard is one of the world's great crusader historians and this work, the distillation of over forty years' research and contemplation, is the only one of its kind in English.

Freud's Paranoid Quest: Psychoanalysis and Modern Suspicion

Freud's Paranoid Quest is an exceptionally broad-ranging and well-written book....Whether or not one agrees with certain of his arguments and assessments, one must acknowledge the remarkable intelligence that is displayed on nearly every page.--Louis Sassauthor of Madness and Modernism and The Paradoxes of Delusion John Farrell's Freud's Paranoid Quest is the most trenchant, exhilarating and illuminating book I have encountered in many years. [The book] should be pondered not just by all students of Freud's thought but by everyone who senses that 'advanced modernity' has by now outstayed its welcome.--Frederick CrewsUniversity of California, Berkeley In Freud's Paranoid Quest, John Farrell analyzes the personality and thought of Sigmund Freud in order to give insight into modernity's paranoid character and into the true nature of Freudian psychoanalysis. John Farrell's Freud is not the path-breaking psychologist he claimed to be, but the fashioner and prisoner of a total system of suspicion. The most gifted of paranoids, Freud deployed this system as a self-heroizing myth and a compelling historical ideology.

Scandinavian Misadventure: Campaign in Norway, 1940 Life and times

In April 1940, 70 years ago, the Germans launched by sea and air a meticulously planned and daringly executed invasion of Norway and Denmark, primarily to secure the safe passage of iron ore from neutral Sweden. The conflict in Norway was the first occasion in the history of warfare that all three Services had been engaged in a totally joint operation. The naval losses the Germans suffered ensured that Britain was safe from invasion and the evacuation from Dunkirk was possible.

The Psychological Well-Being of East Asian Youth (Quality of Life in Asia)

The rapid social change in the East Asia has brought great research attention on the family, education and political impacts.The growth trajectory of the next generation is exposed to an entirely different contextowing to the dual effects of traditional and modern values as well as practices.This book provides an overall picture of the developmental trajectory of Taiwanese youth as a typical example in the region.The time frame isset from early adolescence (13years old) to young adulthood (22yeard old).Individual psychological well-being in its broad definition will be used as the outcome indicator to reflect significant developmental processesduring this important transitional life course. Benefitted from the rare panel datasets conducted from 2000-2009, this book has two major focuses: one is to explore the interplay among family, school and community with regardto their influence on the individual growth patterns; the other is to highlight the potential constraint and/or strength of the prevailing social norms and values shared among East Asian societies.To be specific, differentchapters will describe and analyze the life chances and growth patterns among youth with different social capitals (including family SES, educational achievement, rural-urban residence, etc.).Their short-term versuslong-term outcome, as indicated by various psychological well-being variables (e.g., depressive symptoms, deviant or problem behaviors, happiness, edutional performance), will allow us to delineate the particular structuralcontext that individual East Asian youth encounters and to offer constructive suggestions on family interaction, educational strategy as well as health related policies based on the scientific evidence.This book incorporatescomparative reports from other East Asian societies, and from youth panel studies of Australia and the U.S.. The experience of their counter-part in the advanced societies will contribute to readers' understanding of theparticular social situation that East Asian youth is embedded in the growth process.In addition, comparative perspective will enable the reader to contemplate on the potential future development of the affluent generation inthe region.Since changing social structure occurred in the last few decades in the East Asia has suffered inadequate investigation in the realm of family, education and community, this book provides timely information tofill up the gap.Analyses of the valuable dataset from early adolescents to young adults will attract those who are interested in family researches, in youth studies, in panel data analyses, as well as in the socialdevelopment in Taiwan and in East Asia.

Local Story: The Massie-Kahahawai Case and the Culture of History

The Massie-Kahahawai case of 1931–1932 shook the Territory of Hawai‘i to its very core. Thalia Massie, a young Navy wife, alleged that she had been kidnapped and raped by “some Hawaiian boys” in Waik?k?. A few days later, five young men stood accused of her rape. Mishandling of evidence and contradictory testimony led to?a mistrial, but before a second trial could be convened, one of the accused, Horace Ida, was kidnapped and beaten by a group of Navy men and a second, Joseph Kahahawai, lay dead from a gunshot wound. Thalia’s husband, Thomas Massie; her mother, Grace Fortescue; and two Navy men were convicted of manslaughter despite witnesses who saw them kidnap Kahahawai and the later dis- covery of Kahahawai’s body in Massie’s car. Under pressure from Congress and the Navy, territorial governor Lawrence McCully Judd commuted their sentences. After spending only an hour in the governor’s office at ‘Iolani Palace, the four were set free.

Local Story is a close examination of how Native Hawaiians, Asian immigrants, and others responded to challenges posed by the military and federal government during the case’s investigation and aftermath. In addition to providing a concise account?of events as they unfolded, the book shows how this historical narrative has been told and retold in later decades to affirm a local identity among descendants of working-class Native Hawaiians, Asians, and others—in fact, this understanding of the term “local” in the islands dates from the Massie-Kahahawai case.

The Massie-Kahahawai case revealed racial and sexual tensions in pre–World War II Hawai‘i that kept local men and white women apart. And this tension coexisted with the uneasy relationship between federal and military officials and territorial administrators.

Historian John Rosa makes a compelling case for returning to the infamous 1930s Massie case that rocked the Hawaiian Islands and garnered national attention. . . . this slim book is relevant for courses on Hawai'i's history, localism and power, and race and the law. Its attention to geography through the mapping of race, class, and gender upon the topography of Honolulu provides an excellent case study in critical geography and contributes to the scholarship on history and culture.-- "The Hawaiian Journal of History"

Quantum Psychology: How Brain Software Programs You and Your World

Quantum Psychology offers a coherent and humorous description of how our thoughts, values and behaviors have been colored by our use of language and our prevailing view of the universe. While Quantum Mechanics, relativity, non-Euclidean geometries, non-Aristotelian logic and General Semantics have revolutionized our view of the world, the habits of daily human thought still sit deeply rooted in the thought patterns and linguistic conventions of the middle ages. Through an introduction to E-Prime (English without use of the verb “to be”), the Eight Circuits of the Brain Model, and the labyrinth of Quantum Mechanic’s various views of reality, Quantum Psychology can help your brain improve your perception of yourself and the world.

The Tao of Jung (Arkana)

This work tracks Carl Jung's life and spiritual development as the embodiment of the way of the Tao. Jung was well acquainted with the body of Tao knowledge - in his later years he was close to and worked with Wilhelm, a translator of the I Ching. Rosen finds that Jung's life and his psychology reveal the Tao at work. His description of the natural world of the psyche is similar to the natural world as described by Taoists. The essence of both philosophies is that the integration of opposites, such as shadow/persona and yin/yang, leads to wholeness. The Tao, Rosen holds, enabled Jung, who started out as a Freudian, to leave Freud in the major crisis of his life and to end up a more complete person. Rosens's book is modelled on the Tao Te Ching itself and invites readers to further explore the connection between Tao and Jung by looking to the works of the two themselves.

The Siege of Jerusalem: Crusade and Conquest in 1099

The most extraordinary siege in medieval history began with the arrival of a Christian army at Jerusalem on the dawn of 6 June 1099. There were other sieges that lasted longer, involved greater numbers of troops and deployed more siege engines, but nothing else in the entire medieval period compares to the extraordinary journey that the besiegers had made to get to their goal and the heady religious enthusiasm among the troops. This was the culmination of the First Crusade, a military pilgrimage that had seen hundreds of thousands of men, women and children leave their homes in Western Europe, march for three years over thousands of miles and undergo tremendous hardship to reach their longed-for goal: Jerusalem. No other medieval army had made such a journey to reach its goal. And no other army had such a peculiar makeup. There were hundreds of unattached poor women, gathered from the margins of Northern French towns by the charity of the charismatic preacher Peter the Hermit and given a new direction to their lives by the expedition to Jerusalem. There were farmers who had sold their land and homes, put all their belongings in two-wheeled carts and marched alongside their oxen. Bards came and earned their keep composing songs about the events they were witnessing, from the heroic charges of the nobles to bawdy satires on the lax behaviour of some of the senior clergy. Knights and foot soldiers were at the heart of the fighting forces, naturally. But even here there was a strange fluidity to the army, with the status of a warrior rising or falling depending on his ability to keep his horse alive and his armour in good order. Here is a vivid and engaging account of the events of that siege: the key figures, the turning points, the spiritual beliefs of the participants, the deep political rivalries and the massacre of the inhabitants that left such a deep scar in the horrified

'This is a refreshingly new approach which is supported by an exciting and evocative written style, many excellent diagrams, 3D maps and prosopographical insights... The most seamless and gripping narrative possible.' --The Journal of Ecclesiastical History'An engaging story of sacrifice, endeavour, brutality and fanaticism, one that sears itself into the imagination and reveals a terrible impact on the medieval world.' --The Good Book Guide

Wages of Rebellion

Revolutions come in waves and cycles. We are again riding the crest of a revolutionary epic, much like 1848 or 1917, from the Arab Spring to movements against austerity in Greece to the Occupy movement. InWages of Rebellion , Chris Hedges- who has chronicled the malaise and sickness of a society in terminal moral decline in his booksEmpire of IllusionandDeath of the Liberal Class - investigates what social and psychological factors cause revolution, rebellion, and resistance. Drawing on an ambitious overview of prominent philosophers, historians, and literary figures he shows not only the harbingers of a coming crisis but also the nascent seeds of rebellion. Hedges' message is clear: popular uprisings in the United States and around the world are inevitable in the face of environmental destruction and wealth polarization.Focusing on the stories of rebels from around the world and throughout history, Hedges investigates what it takes to be a rebel in modern times. Utilizing the work of Reinhold Niebuhr, Hedges describes the motivation that guides the actions of rebels assublime madness" , the state of passion that causes the rebel to engage in an unavailing fight against overwhelmingly powerful and oppressive forces. For Hedges, resistance is carried out not for its success, but as a moral imperative that affirms life. Those who rise up against the odds will be those endowed with thissublime madness."From South African activists who dedicated their lives to ending apartheid, to contemporary anti-fracking protests in Alberta, Canada, to whistleblowers in pursuit of transparency,Wages of Rebellionshows the cost of a life committed to speaking the truth and demanding justice. Hedges has penned an indispensable guide to rebellion.

A call for a new American revolution... Like early-20th-century muckraking journalists and, more recently, I.F. Stone, Hedges makes a boisterous, outspoken contribution to revolutionizing the national conversation. --Kirkus Reviews

Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement: With 300 Projects (Diy): With 300 Projects (Diy)

This revised and expanded edition of The Complete Photo Guide to Home Improvement is a comprehensive reference for planning and completing major remodeling projects. With nearly 300 projects, this book is indispensable for DIYers who have moved beyond basic home repair and are ready to tackle projects that make a big difference in quality of life-and in their savings accounts. DIYers who tackle their own major remodeling projects achieve exactly the results they want, and can easily save thousands of dollars over the cost of hiring contractors to do the work. Studio photography and the most detailed step-by-step information available make this book unique among books on remodeling. New in this latest edition are major chapters on kitchen planning, bathroom planning, and working with contractors for jobs that are big enough to require some help. Readers will also appreciate the focus on new building materials, including laminate flooring, steel framing, PEX plumbing tubing, and glass blocks. A helpful reference appendix provides at-a-glance information essential for DIY remodelers.

Best book I've found for home improvement as opposed to home repair. Covers all the important projects with detailed, simple to understand explanations and photos or drawings to make sure you understand how to do it! Highly recommended --Home Improvment A to ZI bought this book just before purchasing my first home. It provided me with the information I needed to make successful improvements to my home. Within a week after purchasing my house, I was installing new flooring, toilets, sinks, faucets, electrical outlets and switches, and light fixtures. These are things that I had NEVER done, but was able to do successfully with the help of this book. If you do get this book, I also strongly recommend the Black & Decker Complete Guide to Home Repair as a companion. There is some overlap between the two books, but there are important pieces that are exclusive to each. Best wishes with your project! --An EngineerThe B&D Home Improvement book is the core of my home improvement library. I reviewed other home improvement books at Home Depot, but liked B&D's books. I also own the B&D Home Repair and B&D Bathrooms books. The three books use many of the same pictures, but I do not regret buying any of them. I prefer this book over the others because the projects it covers are things I would like to do, like remodeling a bathroom, etc. In addition, the book covers making things from "scratch" which is how many projects are once you finish the demolition phase. In comparison, the home repair book focuses on repairs rather than new projects. As an engineer, I consider myself "above average" in home repair. However, this book has saved me a few times, when I got lost, such as helping me to understand a three way electric switch circuit for my kitchen light. The cut away diagrams are very useful; especially for the plumbing sections. They literally cut things in half, to show you the inside view, whether it be a garbage disposal or a shower stall. Black & Decker used significant resources in making this book because in a way it is an advertisement for B&D tools. The book conveniently displays and uses Black & Decker tools in the pictures. Bear in mind that Black & Decker is in the business of selling tools, not books. However, that being said the book is still a great reference. --M YoungThis is the best home improvement manual I've been able to find. I recently embarked on a journey to convert a kitchen pantry into a half bath. Although I'm fairly handy with tools, I've never done a significant house project before. After starting in on the destruction of the pantry (ripping down plaster) my neighbor loaned me this book to poke through. Eventually I picked it up and the more I read, the more I found relevant to my project. Eventually I found myself hovered over this book prior to doing just about anything short of driving a nail (I may have even looked that up!) Let me say that everything involved in installing a bathroom is in this book - framing for the new walls, installing drywall, taping and finishing drywall, installing DWV pipes, installing plumbing supply lines, installing the electricity, installing ceramic tile floor, installing the sink, everything, and more. The first 100 pages or so are dedicated to the high-level subjects (carpentry, plumbing, wiring, etc) and even include some general building code information. Unfortunately, my neighbor came to reclaim the book, and after looking for a book of similar substance, I have circled back to this one. Today I'm buying this book with the Complete Photo Guide to Outdoor Home Improvement (I've been asked to build a brick patio next.) As a former Army helicopter mechanic, I used to feel as though with a chopper manual and the right tools I could fix anything. Seriously, this book makes me feel the same way about home improvement projects. I can't think of anything you could do to the interior of a home that's not in this book. Want to rip down an interior wall to open up living space? In here. How about a glass block partition around your shower stall? Yep. Skylights? A bay window --A customerI bought this book just before purchasing my first home. It provided me with the information I needed to make successful improvements to my home.

Understanding Research in Clinical and Counseling Psychology

Understanding Research in Clinical and Counseling Psychology, Second Edition, is written and designed for graduate students in the psychology and counseling fields, for whom the value of psychological research is not always readily apparent. Contributed to by experts in their respective fields, this text presents research as an indispensable tool for practice, a tool that is used every day to advance knowledge and improve assessment, treatment choice, and client outcomes. The book is divided into four logical parts: Research Foundations, Research Strategies, Research Practice, and finally, Special Problems. Included is a chapter that addresses one of the most important controversies, the distinction between realistic and “gold standard” efficacy studies. The remainder of the book addresses salient issues such as conducting research in various cultures, operating an empirically-oriented practice, and performing research with families, children, and the elderly. Students and professors will find the coverage ample and penetrating, without being too overwhelming.

Doing Research with Children and Young People (Published in association with The Open University)

'The author gives an excellent overview and explores how children have been seen as objects and subjects in research as well as increasingly as participants and more recently still as researchers.'

'This book is especially beneficial in terms of its breadth of discussion on the legal, ethical and moral issues of conducting research with children and young people alongside the key methodological challenges that students and practitioners are faced when conducting this type of research' - Research Policy and Planning

Doing Research with Children and Young People introduces researchers to the key considerations involved in working with children and young people.

The book highlights issues which arise at different stages in the process and which all researchers need to take account of as they plan and carry out a study. These include:

· ethical and legal issues

· philosophical underpinnings of research

· age and diversity of the children involved

· evaluation and dissemination of findings.

Doing Research with Children and Young People has been developed to accompany The Open University course Research with Children and Young People (EK310).
