Flashback Book Excerpt:

If you could relive your childhood, would you? What if you had no choice? On the thirty-fifth anniversary of his parents' mysterious drowning, Jack Koryan returns to his family beach cottage. During a swim, Jack is attacked by a school of rare jellyfish whose toxic stings put him in a coma for three years. When he awakens, he finds that the jellyfish toxin has left him with an extraordinary memory that impresses his doctors. This discovery is complicated by flashbacks: some, pleasant childhood vignettes, others, confusing flashes of violence that leave him quaking in horror. Jack wonders if he's losing his mind, but that fear is dispelled by Rene Ballard, a pharmacologist working on the world's first cure for Alzheimer's Disease. She wants to test Jack because the basis of the drug is the very jellyfish toxin that sent Jack into a coma. And, while several test patients have miraculously regained functionality, others are also experiencing dangerous flashback seizures. Ballard's revelation sets Jack on a quest to discover what is happening to him. He and Rene uncover a sinister pattern of lies and deceit that has left behind a trail of bodies, and several elderly patients stuck in a past that they cannot emerge from--or don't want to. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Flashback Eclipse Book Excerpt:

From a leading art historian, a provocative exploration of the intersection of art, politics, and history in 1960s Italy Flashback, Eclipse is a groundbreaking study of 1960s Italian art and its troubled but also resourceful relation to the history and politics of the first part of the twentieth century and the aftermath of World War II. Most analyses have treated the 1960s in Italy as the decade of “presentism” par excellence, a political decade but one liberated from history. Romy Golan, however, makes the counterargument that 1960s Italian artists did not forget Italian and European history but rather reimagined it in oblique form. Her book identifies and explores this imaginary through two forms of nonlinear and decidedly nonpresentist forms of temporality—the flashback and the eclipse. In view of the photographic and filmic nature of these two concepts, the book’s analysis is largely mediated by black-and-white images culled from art, design, and architecture magazines, photo books, film stills, and exhibition documentation. The book begins in Turin with Michelangelo Pistoletto’s Mirror Paintings; moves on to Campo urbano, a one-day event in the city of Como; and ends with the Vitalità del Negativo exhibition in Rome. What is being recalled and at other moments occluded are not only episodes of Italian nationalism and Fascism but also various liberatory moments of political and cultural resistance. The book’s main protagonists are, in order of appearance, artists Michelangelo Pistoletto and Giosetta Fioroni, photographer Ugo Mulas, Ettore Sottsass (as critic rather than designer), graphic designer Bruno Munari, curators Luciano Caramel and Achille Bonito Oliva, architect Piero Sartogo, Carla Lonzi (as artist as much as critic), filmmakers Michelangelo Antonioni and Bernardo Bertolucci, and, in flashback among the departed, painter Felice Casorati, writer Massimo Bontempelli, art historian Aby Warburg, architect Giuseppe Terragni, and Renaissance friar-philosopher-mathematician Giordano Bruno (as patron saint of the sixty-eighters).

FlashBack Book Excerpt:

A modern-day teenage orphan remembers a millennia-old murder through a connection that had spanned generations. Sarah thinks she is going crazy when she dreams, not realizing that she is watching her ancestor's life through inherited memories. When Sarah discovers she has an instinctive ability to fight thanks to her ancestor, one of the most feared warriors in history, her life drastically changes. A scientific research company offers her a new and better future. With no more group homes or charity bins, she joins a group of teens that have the same unique genes, and Sarah begins to learn to use her inherited advantages. But the project is more than it appears to be. As the body count rises, Sarah finds herself in a battle that may cost her every thought she has ever had. --- From the Editor: This engaging sci-fi thriller from debut author T.R. Davis, is a powerful reminder that the small can be mighty and that one ought never to mess with a girl who happens to carry the ancestral memories of one of the most infamous warrior queens in history. Sarah, a girl bouncing around in foster homes, learns she has inherited the memories of her ancestor, Innogen, who had led an uprising against corrupt Roman rule during the first century AD. Sarah’s mind remembers a life she never lived and her muscles remember battles she never fought. She begins to learn and train in a special project at a boarding school far from her old life as an orphan. But all is not as it seems with the beneficent school program and they may want more from Sarah than she will give… not without a fight.

A Sense of Community Book Excerpt:

Television's Community follows the shenanigans of a diverse group of traditional and nontraditional community college students: Jeff Winger, a former lawyer; Britta Perry, a feminist; Abed Nadir, a pop culture enthusiast; Shirley Bennett, a mother; Troy Barnes, a former jock; Annie Edison, a naive overachiever; and Pierce Hawthorne, an old-fashioned elderly man. There are also Benjamin Chang, the maniacal Spanish teacher, and Craig Pelton, the eccentric dean of Greendale Community College, along with well-known guest stars who play troublemaking students, nutty professors and frightening administrators. This collection of fresh essays familiarizes readers not only with particular characters and popular episodes, but behind-the-scenes aspects such as screenwriting and production techniques. The essayists explore narrative theme, hyperreality, masculinity, feminism, color blindness, civic discourse, pastiche, intertextuality, media consciousness, how Community is influenced by other shows and films, and how fans have contributed to the show.

A Better Life Book Excerpt:

There are times in our lives when we all feel confused and overwhelmed. The advice in this book can help you deal with specific emotional problems. This book provides support for those suffering from mental distress and unable to get immediate medical or psychological help. The book covers a comprehensive range of emotional disorders. The advice is intended to be the first step to recovery. Cognitive Behaviour Therapy (CBT) empowers you to understand the problem in a way that will maximise your potential to tackle future obstacles and become more independent. You will be successfully helped to mobilise your own resources, and improve your sense of self-effectiveness, by being enabled to attribute the cause of change to your own efforts. CBT concentrates on the connections between a person’s thoughts about themselves or a situation and how this affects feelings and behaviour. Together the patient and therapist work to understand and alter the negative thinking and behaviour that result in distress and prevent the patient from living a normal life. CBT can be used for a variety of disorders and aims to tackle the root cause of the illness, reducing the need for drugs at all in some cases. For other illnesses, CBT is being developed as a partner for drugs. ‘A Better Life’ includes information, tools and exercises to enable you to gain insight into your problems; start making changes for the better; recover and move forward with confidence and prevent relapses so you maintain your progress. You will experience an increase in power and control over your problems from gaining a different perspective and examining the roots of your problems. As your self-awareness and personal insight develop, you will feel new energy and self-acceptance. By exploring your thoughts, feelings and behaviour you will be able to face decisions and choices on your own more resourcefully. You will find the opportunity to make sense of your life and be able to plan changes that will make a difference to your future.

Early American Cinema in Transition Book Excerpt:

The period 1907–1913 marks a crucial transitional moment in American cinema. As moving picture shows changed from mere novelty to an increasingly popular entertainment, fledgling studios responded with longer running times and more complex storytelling. A growing trade press and changing production procedures also influenced filmmaking. In Early American Cinema in Transition, Charlie Keil looks at a broad cross-section of fiction films to examine the formal changes in cinema of this period and the ways that filmmakers developed narrative techniques to suit the fifteen-minute, one-reel format. Keil outlines the kinds of narratives that proved most suitable for a single reel’s duration, the particular demands that time and space exerted on this early form of film narration, and the ways filmmakers employed the unique features of a primarily visual medium to craft stories that would appeal to an audience numbering in the millions. He underscores his analysis with a detailed look at six films: The Boy Detective; The Forgotten Watch; Rose O’Salem-Town; Cupid’s Monkey Wrench; Belle Boyd, A Confederate Spy; and Suspense.
