Fire

By Sebastian Junger

A very Fine condition in alike dust-jacket, SIGNED by author Sebastian Junger on the title page; The collection of short essays by the author of The Perfect Storm. The true stories range from disastrous fires to the wars in Kosovo and Afghanistan, the diamond trade in Sierra Leone, the hostage crisis in Kashmir. In Junger's company, we experience monumental events and happenings with frightening authenticity. Few writers have been to so many desperate corners of the globe as has Sebastian Junger; fewer still have provided such starkly memorable evocations of characters and events. From the murderous mechanics of the diamond trade in Sierra Leone, to an inferno forest fire burning out of control in the steep canyons of Idaho, to the logic of guerrilla warfare in Afghanistan and the forensics of genocide in Kosovo, this riveting collection of Junger's nonfiction will take you places you wouldn't dream of going to on your own. "The main thing Brad Haugh remembers about his escape was the thunderous sound of his own heart. It was beating two hundred times a minute, and by the time he and the two smoke jumpers running behind him had crested a steep ridge in Colorado, everyone behind him was dead." --FIRE "Junger [is] a man with an appetite for the ragged edge of life and the ability to write about it with restrained power."– Kirkus Reviews (starred) "[M]agnificently conceived, lovingly written, perfectly evocative of a place, a time, a passion." – Beth Kephart, The Atlantic Monthly

The Mismeasure of Man

By Gould, Steven Jay

First edition, first printing of one of Gould's most famous and controversial books. Here he analyses craniometry and IQ testing to point out the unconscious biases and a priori assumptions built into much "scientific" research. Researchers recently made the case that Gould was incorrect about one aspect of the book's argument, it still stands as an important indictment of biological determinism and a lucid reminder that those engaged in research of any type must be aware of their own privilege and biases. A superb copy, rare to find this book. This book is an excellent and crisp copy.

Awakening The Heroes Within

Awakening The Heroes Within

By Pearson, Carol S.

"The heroic quest is about saying 'yes' to yourself and in so doing, becoming more fully alive and more effective in the world...The quest is replete with dangers and pitfalls, but it offers great rewards: the capacity to be successful in the world, knowledge of the mysteries of the human soul, and the opportunity to find and express your unique gifts in the world". In this bold and original work, Carol S. Pearson shows that the heroic quest isn't just for certain people under special circumstances. Exploring the many heroic paths available to each of us, at every point in our lives, her innovative program enables us to live heroically by activating and applying twelve archetypes in our lives. This companion to the best-selling 'The Hero Within' outlines twelve archetypal patterns that can aid inner development and the quest for wholeness. 'These archetypes are inner guides that can help us:' · prepare for the journey, by learning how to become successful members of society · embark upon the quest, by becoming initiated into the mysteries of the human soul; and · return to transform our lives as a result of claiming our uniqueness and personal power Writing for individuals seeking to realise their full potential and professionals engaged in empowering others, Pearson shows how journeys differ by the age, gender, and cultural background of the seeker, and how archetypes help awaken the capacities of our psyches. A unique diagnostic test, the Heroic Myth Index, and exercises are included to help us understand and awaken our inner guides.

The Political Brain: The Role of Emotion in Deciding the Fate of the Nation

By Westen, Drew

The Political Brain is a groundbreaking investigation into the role of emotion in determining the political life of the nation. For two decades Drew Westen, professor of psychology and psychiatry at Emory University, has explored a theory of the mind that differs substantially from the more "dispassionate" notions held by most cognitive psychologists, political scientists, and economists, and Democratic campaign strategists. The idea of the mind as a cool calculator that makes decisions by weighing the evidence bears no relation to how the brain actually works. When political candidates assume voters dispassionately make decisions based on "the issues," they lose. That's why only one Democrat has been re-elected to the presidency since Franklin Roosevelt, and only one Republican has failed in that quest.In politics, when reason and emotion collide, emotion invariably wins. Elections are decided in the marketplace of emotions, a marketplace filled with values, images, analogies, moral sentiments, and moving oratory, in which logic plays only a supporting role. Westen shows, through a whistle-stop journey through the evolution of the passionate brain and a bravura tour through fifty years of American presidential and national elections, why campaigns succeed and fail. The evidence is overwhelming that three things determine how people vote, in this order: their feelings toward the parties and their principles, their feelings toward the candidates, and, if they haven't decided by then, their feelings toward the candidates' policy positions. Westen turns conventional political analyses on their head, suggesting that the question for Democratic politics isn't so much about moving to the right or the left but about moving the electorate. He shows how it can be done through examples of what candidates have said, or could have said, in debates, speeches, and ads. Westen's discoveries could utterly transform electoral arithmetic, showing how a different view of the mind and brain leads to a different way of talking with voters about issues that have tied the tongues of Democrats for much of forty years, such as abortion, guns, taxes, and race. You can't change the structure of the brain. But you can change the way you appeal to it. And here's how...
