Description:
In this volume, the author has given an authoritative account of his handling of the transference between analyst and patient in the light of his conception of the archetypes and man's inner life, drawing a close parallel between the modern psychotherapeutic process and the symbolical pictures in a 16th century alchemical text, the Rosarium philosophorum. 198 pages.

Condition: clean copy.Content: This book is concerned with the visual arts as the embodiment of the crises in national and cultural identities in Taiwan. Art in Taiwan may appear to be provincial and hybrid at first glance. Yet it is precisely the seeming provincialism and hybridity that reveal the complicated interface of culture and politics as well as the creative impulses of a diverse group of artists.196 pages, select bibliography, index.

Description:
During World War II Canadian shipyards built more than four hundred merchant ships, most of them 10,000-ton cargo ships. For the first time this extraordinary accomplishment is described in detail, including the design of the ships, their construction, and each ship's operation and history. Also provided is a fold-out plan, to scale, of the British ship from which the Canadian program originated. The dispersal of these ships at the end of the war and the near demise of the Canadian merchant marine is also discussed. Eyewitness accounts bring to life the many adventures of the merchant crewmen who manned these so-called "Forts and Parks" ships. Superbly illustrated, the book is a welcome addition to maritime history and a tribute to the Canadian war effort.

Description:
How did an obscure rabbi and a minor prophet from a backwater of the Roman Empire come to be considered the central figure in Western civilization? Did his influence in fact change the world? With his remarkable ability to bring figures of the past to life in a rounded full-bodied waay, Cahil shows Jesus from his birth to his execution through the eyes of those who knew him and in the context of his time. Here is Jesus the loving friend, itinerant preacher, and quiet revolutionary, whose words and actions inspired his followers to journey throughout the Roman world and speak the truth he instilled.

Description:
Bonny Blankenship's most treasured memories are of idyllic summers spent in Watersend, South Carolina, with her best friend, Lainey McKay. Amid the sand dunes and oak trees draped with Spanish moss, they swam and wished for happy-ever-afters, then escaped to the local bookshop to read and whisper in the glorious cool silence. Until the night that changed everything, the night that Lainey's mother disappeared. Now, in her early fifties, Bonny is desperate to clear her head after a tragic mistake threatens her career as an emergency room doctor and her marriage crumbles around her. With her troubled teenage daughter, Piper, in tow, she goes back to the beloved river house, where she is soon joined by Lainey and her two young children. During lazy summer days and magical nights, they reunite with bookshop owner Mimi, who is tangled with the past and its mysteries. As the three women cling to a fragile peace, buried secrets and long-ago loves return like the tide.

Description:
Sound clean trade paperback. 264pp. Although many Americans consider the establishment of the colonies as the birth of this country, in fact early America existed long before the arrival of the Europeans. From coast to coast, Native Americans had created enduring cultures, and the subsequent European invasion remade much of the land and society. In New Worlds for All, Colin G. Calloway explores the unique and vibrant new cultures that Indians and Europeans forged together in early America. The journey toward this hybrid society kept Europeans' and Indians' lives tightly entwined: living, working, worshiping, traveling, and trading together—as well as fearing, avoiding, despising, and killing one another. In some areas, settlers lived in Indian towns, eating Indian food. In the Mohawk Valley of New York, Europeans tattooed their faces; Indians drank tea. A unique American identity emerged.The second edition of New Worlds for All incorporates fifteen years of additional scholarship on Indian-European… Read more

Description:
Set in Vienna in the 1930's, this is a novel in 'five scenes' that captures the despair, poverty, enforced idleness, and crumbling moral values of those years just before the political catastrophes that lead to World War II. With an astute eye for irony and a sardonic humour, the author weaves together stories about the people of Yellow Street, the home of the leather-merchants in the Leopoldstadt district. Living cheek by jowl on the bustling thoroughfare, crabbed merchants, impoverished bourgeois, canny profiteers, and out-and-out criminals alike find no privacy respected and no secrets possible. The author's concern, however, is the victims - in the main seemingly helpless women and children, perhaps poor and exploited but grown streetwise and cagey, each protecting a core of integrity and dignity.

The time is the 1950's. The place is a blue-collar town in upstate New York, where five high school girls are joined in a gang dedicated to pride, power, and vengeance on a world that seems to made to denigrate and destroy them. Here is the secret history of a sisterhood of blood, a haven from a world of male oppressors, marked by a liberating fury that burns too hot to last. Above all, it is the story of Legs Sadovsky, with her lean, on-the-edge, icy beauty , whose nerve, muscle, hate and hurt make her the spark of this novel, its guiding spirit, its burning core.

Description:
'Often, the works that touch us most deeply have been produced not from ideas, but from visions. The difference between an idea and a vision is that an idea can be developed without ever living in its zeitgeist for long. A vision, however, most often can be brought to life only if lived as deeply and as truly as one is able, and over many years' time. The work of Caroline Myss derives from the latter. Through decades of strong focus and strong living, she has brought forth a deeply insightful work that offers meaning on many levels, each one intense, spirited, and useful. Anatomy of the Spirit is a rare undertaking by a completely original thinker.' - Clarissa Pinkola Estes, PhDiNDEX 304 pAGES.
