?[Anxious] helps to explain and prevent the kinds of debilitating anxieties all of us face in this increasingly stressful world. Daniel J. Levitin, author ofThe Organized Mind and This Is Your Brain On MusicA comprehensive and accessible exploration of anxiety, from a leading neuroscientist and the author ofSynaptic SelfCollectively, anxiety disorders are our most prevalent psychiatric problem, affecting about forty million adults in the United States. InAnxious, Joseph LeDoux, whose NYU lab has been at the forefront of research efforts to understand and treat fear and anxiety, explains the range of these disorders, their origins, and discoveries that can restore sufferers to normalcy. LeDoux?s groundbreaking premise is that we?ve been thinking about fear and anxiety in the wrong way. These are not innate states waiting to be unleashed from the brain, but experiences that we assemble cognitively. Treatment of these problems must address both their conscious manifestations and underlying non-conscious processes. While knowledge about how the brain works will help us discover new drugs, LeDoux argues that the greatest breakthroughs may come from using brain research to help reshape psychotherapy.A major work on our most pressing mental health issue, Anxious explains the science behind fear and anxiety disorders.

Bitching


Bitching


$16.03


In the early 1970s, the national conversation regarding feminism was very different. Public discussions of womanhood?single life, marriage, workplace harassment, rights, gripes?were often channeled through movement spokeswomen and always refracted through the lens of talking to men about men. Little was shared about the chats happening behind closed doors where everyday women talked to women without the threat of men listening in. But, all that changed with the book Bitching. Originally published in 1973, Bitching is journalist and author Marion Meade?s deep and insightful investigation into the real dialogue happening inside coffee klatches, consciousness-raising groups, and therapist?s sessions. Using excerpts from real taped conversations, Meade presents the frustration, anger, resigned acceptance, and scathing humor that make up the female experience from birth to grave. For the first time, male chauvinist behavior goes fully examined and unexcused, and the roles men force upon women get broken down to their sometimes ridiculous component parts. A snapshot into a key time in the feminist movement, this book is a must-read for anyone interested in how far we have come. or how much we have stayed the same.

Renee Gladman has always struck me as being a dreamershe writes that way and the dreaming seems to construct the architecture of the world unfolding before our reading eyes.” Eileen MylesA collection of linked essays concerned with the life and mind of the writer by one of the most original voices in contemporary literature. Each essay takes a day as its point of inquiry, observing the body as it moves through time, architecture, and space, gradually demanding a new logic and level of consciousness from the narrator and reader.I was reading a line in a book, then reading a line in another book, and performing small acts in between: I sat at intervals on the toilet, I slept sporadically, I ate kale and “fish food,” and called myself “Renee” for a time. Nobody knew who I was at the grocery store, but going there was my big event. I knew the books of these people; I knew these people and I didn’t change their names, but when they appeared in my books it wasn’t really their stories I was telling, so they didn’t need my protection and I could go “Danielle, Danielle” all day. Born in Atlanta, GA, in 1971, Renee Gladman studied Philosophy at Vassar College and Poetics at New College of California. She is the author of eight works of prose, including the Ravicka novelsEvent Factory, The Ravickians, and Ana Patova Crosses a Bridge, as well as a book of poetry,A Picture-Feeling. Her most recent work of fiction is Morelia, a short novel forthcoming in 2016. A longtime publisher and bookmaker, her projects include Clamour (1996-1999), the Leroy Chapbook series (1999-2003), and Leon Works (since 2005).

Childhood


Childhood


$21.95


Caroline von Heydebrand, one of the original teachers at the first Waldorf school in Stuttgart and a personal student of Rudolf Steiner, was a true knight of the spirit, a priestess of becoming, for whom a childs life began not with birth but in the spiritual world. Deeply aware of the spiritual reality of human existence, she was a master teacher whose reverence for and devotion to children allowed her to guard, nourish, and guide their unfolding powers in a healthy, beautiful way with unerring love and delicacy. In this book, the ripe fruit of twenty years of teaching children and studying anthroposophy, Caroline von Heydebrand deals lightly, wisely, and almost aphoristically with many aspects of Waldorf education, drawing both on her own experiences and the experiences of the children she taught. Thus, the book is full of stories, examples, and anecdotes. Starting with a discussion of a childs physical form, she goes on to speak of childrens souls, taking as her guides the four temperaments-sanguine, melancholic, choleric, and phlegmatic. She shows how adults-above all, teachers-can benefit from an intimate knowledge of these. Then she moves on to consider the growth of consciousness and the development of moral, imaginative, and other capacities. As she does so, she touches on most of what makes Waldorf education unique among educational philosophies of our time. Throughout, a reader senses her deep love of nature and humanity. This is an excellent book for those wishing to understand Waldorf education from within. The author speaks from deep experience and from firsthand knowledge of Rudolf Steiners educational philosophy. *Author: Von Heydebrand, Caroline/ Harwood, Daphne/ Heydebrand, Caroline Von *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 141 *Publication Date: 1988/12/12 *Language: English *Dimensions: 8.48 x 5.62 x 0.26 inches

Coleridge


Coleridge


$38.59


Coleridges theories, insights and practical criticism underlie nearly all subsequent criticism in English. It was not only that he turned decisively away from eighteenth century views (clearly and usefully surveyed in the first chapter). His powerfully general theories of the imagination and of poetic language and structure provided permanent insights. He saw the plays as organic structures of poetic effects, the product of conscious artistry. These served Shakespeares deep human insight, both psychological and moral. Dr Badawi provides a lucid analysis of the elements of Coleridges criticism of Shakespeare, demonstrating the relationship with his criticism generally, and bringing out its originality, its validity and its influence on our concepts of poetic language, dramatic form and our response to the whole medium. *Author: Badawi, Muhammad Mustafa/ Badawi, M.M. *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 232 *Publication Date: 2010/02/25 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.50 x 8.50 x 0.53 inches

This classic book on mystical experience was originally published in 1901.

He believed that individuals like Buddha, Jesus, Spinoza, Whitman, and others were the forerunners of the beings who will eventually inhabit the earth.

Ruling Class, Ruling Culture


Ruling Class, Ruling Culture


$34.34


This is a study of the Australian ruling class – the main companies, the leading political groups and the links and conflicts among them. The author also analyses class inequalities in education, the development of childrens ideas about class, the role of the mass media and the way class relations are cemented culturally and psychologically. He introduces his book with a brief discussion of the literature on class theory, and a critical evaluation of Australian writing on class. Professor Connells major aims are to describe and analyse Australia in the 1970s, to show how class theory is a useful tool in understanding the situation and to develop the theory by working through some practical cases. Apart from its obvious importance for Australian readers, this book should be of interest in other countries, both for comparison and for its original ideas on a number of important issues, such as conflict in the ruling class, and class consciousness in young people. *Author: Connell, R. W./ Connell, Raewyn *Binding Type: Paperback *Number of Pages: 264 *Publication Date: 1977/02/17 *Language: English *Dimensions: 5.51 x 8.50 x 0.60 inches
