Angst


Angst


$38.75


Some twenty percent of us are afflicted with common anxiety and depressive disorders-not just brief bouts of nervousness or sorrow, but painful dysfunctions without obvious benefit. Why do so many people suffer from angst?In this path-breaking volume, engagingly written for the general public, psychiatrist Jeffrey Kahn reveals that angst ultimately results from our transformation, over tens of thousands of years, from biologically shaped, almost herd-like prehistoric tribes, to rational and independent individuals in modern civilization. Kahn looks at five basic types of modern-day angst-Panic Anxiety, Social Anxiety, OCD, Atypical Depression, and Melancholic Depression-and shows how each derives from primeval social instincts that once helped our ancestors survive. For instance, the “panic disorder” which prevents some people from flying may have originally evolved to keep our tribal ancestors from traveling dangerously far from home. Likewise, the increased emotional sensitivity to social rejection that now triggers episodes of “atypical depression” may have helped maintain polite behavior and social harmony in our ancestors. Our distinctly human civilization and rational consciousness lets us defy these social instincts. But those over-ridden instincts can resurface as stressful emotional disorders. Kahn notes that some of us painfully tackle this distress head-on, in ways that can advance intellectual creativity, social performance and productivity. He also describes the interplay of instinct with the advance of civilization, and on how evolutionary perspective explains why modern treatments work. Ranging from Darwin and Freud to the most cutting-edge medical and scientific findings-drawing from ancient writings, modern humor and popular lyrics, and with many amusing cartoons-Angst offers us an exciting new slant on some of the most pervasive mental health issues of our time.

Ark


Ark


$10.35


My latest album Ark has been a truly independent effort on my part, in which I have written, performed, recorded and produced all of the compositions therein. My working process for this album is more akin to that of an artisan who oversees the entire creative process from start to finish. Ark comprises eight original compositions in total that explore the recurring themes of identity, alienation, war, political corruption and the threat that we as a species now pose to our environment. Despite the dystopian themes that pervade these eight compositions, there are also expressions of great hope and optimism for a better world to be found within the subtext of the songs. For an Ark as well as being a refuge from the world's harsher realities is also a vehicle for regeneration and renewal. Ark is not really a concept album in the traditional sense of the term, but rather a series of sustained observations and commentaries on the human condition. Like most of my previous work I had no preconceived notion of what the songs subject matter would be other than to follow my gut instinct, refining and distilling the music and my thoughts as they came to me. One cannot underestimate the influence that living and working in relative isolation has had on the making of this album. A lot of my spare time is spent on the internet with friends or watching documentaries and current affairs programs. It strikes me that one of the great paradoxes of modern living is that we often feel that we are connected and at the very centre of communications despite the fact that we are often both physically detached and remote from one another. Unlike my previous album Eye of the Hunter, which makes extensive use of live guitars, bass and drums, practically all the instrumentation on Ark is derived from sample libraries and synthesizers. This was a conscious creative decision on my part as I wanted to imbue the music with the ambience of a neutral electronic soundscape which would in tu

Sergio Bertolucci, Director for Research and Scientific Computing at CERN CERN is easily one of the most secretive organizations of our times.

Backscatter


Backscatter


$40.17


Backscatter is the reflection of particles, waves, or signals back to the direction from which they came: in underwater photography, back to the lens. The reflection, however, is diffuse, as opposed to clear like a mirror, thus softening images and even making them obscure. For this book, Tom Young has embraced backscatter as both subject and metaphor to render spaces below and above the water’s surface?between here and there?in highly original ways. Our senses are awakened as Young creates images that evoke an evolutionary path from sea to land, that speak of a global environment increasingly threatened by human action, and that enlighten our consciousness with an abiding spirit larger than ourselves. In Young’s previous book, the masterful Timeline: Learning to See with My Eyes Closed, the artist was drawn to the way multiple images can be assembled into a single photographic plate that both alters the intent and enhances the meaning of the individual images. Young has followed that same path in Backscatter, as the edge of one image is shared with the edge of another that simultaneously can fuse them into one voice or let them remain as separate voices, suggesting a deep conversation either way. As the sequence evolves, so, too, does the visual narrative whose assembly of diverse images presents unexpected relationships and an unforgettable storyline. Metaphorically, Backscatter is about looking head on into a void where what lies above and below the water’s surface can seem harmonious yet helter-skelter. As John Rohrbach observes in his afterword, this is a? ferocious book? that brings us to a myriad places, each one real and imagined, conveying an overall sense of the human journey through life.

Bitching


Bitching


$15.91


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.
