The Mythic Image

By Campbell, Joseph

Princeton, NJ: Princeton University Press, 1981-11-01. Trade Paperback. Very Good. edge wear; A paperback edition of Campbell's major study of the mythology of the world's high civilizations over five millennia. It includes nearly 450 illustrations. The text is the same as that of the 1974 edition. Mythologist Joseph Campbell was a masterful storyteller, able to weave tales from every corner of the world into compelling, even spellbinding, narratives. His interest in comparative mythology began in childhood, when the young Joe Campbell was taken to see Buffalo Bill's Wild West Show at Madison Square Garden. He started writing articles on Native American mythology in high school, and the parallels between age-old myths and the mythic themes in literature and dreams became a lifelong preoccupation. Campbell's best-known work is The Hero with a Thousand Faces (1949), which became a New York Times paperback best-seller for Princeton in 1988 after Campbell's star turn on the Bill Moyers television program The Power of Myth. During his early years as a professor of comparative religion at Sarah Lawrence College, Campbell made the acquaintance of Indologist Heinrich Zimmer, a kindred spirit who introduced him to Paul and Mary Mellon, the founders of Bollingen Series. They chose Campbell's The Mythic Image as the culmination of the series, giving it the closing position--number one hundred. A lavishly illustrated and beautifully produced study of the mythology of the world's high civilizations, The Mythic Image received a front-cover review in the New York Times Book Review upon publication. Through the medium of visual art, the book explores the relation of dreams to myth and demonstrates the important differences between oriental and occidental interpretations of dreams and life.

Program Evaluation: Methods and Case Studies (5th Edition)

By Posavac, Emil; Posavac, Emil J.; Carey, Raymond; Carey, Raymond G

Upper Saddle River: Taylor & Francis, 1996-07-10. Hardcover. Very Good/Very Good. light edge wear to boards and jacket; Posavac and Carey provide a comprehensive, but accessible, introduction to the field of program evaluation. By adopting a flexible philosophy of evaluation, the authors demonstrate how program evaluation can be applied to answer a wide variety of questions in many different settings. Enjoying widespread acceptance, Program Evaluation includes case studies of completed program evaluations and sketches of the careers of program evaluators to help readers develop an appreciation of the applicability of evaluation methods. By viewing program evaluation as a formalization of something that people do all the time and, indeed, find essential, the implicit threat of evaluation is reduced by the authors' approach. Posavac and Carey stress the importance of working with representatives of all groups affected by the program, whether they be program staff or managers, recipients, or people providing financial or moral support. The Improvement-Focused Model of Evaluation can be used to include many people in the evaluation process. The authors show that the application of program evaluation serves to contribute to making society more effective, just, and healthy.

By Christensen, Michael J

Nashville: Abingdon Press, 1989-01-01. Paperback. Good. spine creasing, edge wear; An estimated 3 million people constitute the fastest growing new class of Americans: street people.

City Streets, City People highlights these circumstances and identifies these needs, and in clearly written, easy-to-follow chapters, outlines how anyone -- volunteer lay worker, part-time paraprofessional, or full-time Christian social worker -- can minister to the mental, physical, and spiritual dimensions of city people.
