Description : Unlock the more straightforward side of Coming Up for Air with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of Coming Up for Air by George Orwell, which follows the middle-aged insurance salesman George Bowling as he tries to recapture the idyllic feelings of his childhood. However, he soon comes to realise that the England of the past has disappeared forever, swept away by the new apathetic consumer society. Moreover, tensions are mounting in Europe as authoritarian parties rise to power, and George, who fought and was wounded in the First World War, sees with foreboding that another immense conflict is on the horizon. Indeed, Coming Up for Air was published in 1938, just a year before the outbreak of the Second World War, and can be seen as the forerunner of Orwell’s later classics 1984 and Animal Farm.

Description : Over 26,000 total pages .... Background: The Fast and Furious operation was responsible for allowing approximately 2,000 firearms to illegally flow into the hands of criminals, including Mexican drug cartel associates. On December 14, 2010, Customs and Border Patrol Agent Brian Terry, a United States Marine, was killed while on patrol just miles from the Mexican border. The firearms found at the scene were semi-automatic rifles that were allowed to walk as part of Operation Fast and Furious. Congressional Republicans have investigated Fast and Furious since January 2011. Over the course of the investigation, the Justice Department has provided false information, stonewalled document requests, produced scores of blacked-out pages and duplicate documents, and refused to comply with two congressional subpoenas. In August 2012, the U.S. House of Representatives Office of General Counsel filed suit against the Justice Department. On January 19, 2016, United States District Judge Amy Berman Jackson issued her opinion and ordered DOJ release documents previously withheld under the President’s executive privilege claim. On April 8, 2016, DOJ complied with the Judge’s order, delivering more than 20,500 pages of documents to the Committee. CONTENTS: Statement of Michael E.

Description : Unlock the more straightforward side of North and South with this concise and insightful summary and analysis! This engaging summary presents an analysis of North and South by Elizabeth Gaskell, a realist novel which examines the stark contrasts between the social classes of Victorian England. It centres on the young protagonist Margaret Hale, who reluctantly moves to the northern industrial town of Milton and is shocked by the conditions there. In particular, she soon clashes with the mill-owner Mr Thornton, as she finds his treatment of the working-class individuals in his employ to be utterly lacking in compassion. Over the course of the novel, Margaret and Mr Thornton constantly challenge each other’s beliefs and morals, personifying the new divide between north and south that had developed in the wake of the Industrial Revolution. Elizabeth Gaskell was one of the most significant writers of the Victorian era, and was a frequent contributor to Charles Dickens’ magazine Household Words, in which North and South was serialised between 1854 and 1855.

Description : Murdered Father, Dead Father: Revisiting the Oedipus Complex examines the progressive construction of the notion of paternal function and its central relevance in psychoanalysis. The distinction between the murdered (narcissistic) father and the dead father is seen as providing a paradigm for the understanding of different types of psychopathologies, as well as works of literature, anthropology and historical events. New concepts are introduced, such as "a father is being beaten", and a distinction between the descriptive après coup and the dynamic après coup that provides a model for a psychoanalytic understanding of temporality. The book includes a reflection on how the concepts of the death instinct and the negative, in their connection with that which is at the limits of representability, are an aid to an understanding of Auschwitz, a moment of rupture in European culture that the author characterizes as " the murder of the dead father". Perelberg’s book is an important clinical and intellectual marker, and will be required reading for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, anthropologists, and historians, as well as students in all these disciplines.

Description : History, literature, religion, myth, film, psychology, theory, and daily conversation all rely heavily on narrative.

Indispensable to writers, critics, and scholars in many fields, A Dictionary of Narratology provides quick and reliable access to terms and concepts that are defined, illustrated, and cross-referenced. All entries are keyed to articles or books in which the terms originated or are exemplified. This revised edition contains additional entries and updates some existing ones.

Description : Change Through Time in Psychoanalysis presents a new stage of the work done through the IPA Committee on Clinical Observation between 2014 and 2020—the advances in our method, the Three Level Model (3-LM), and our clinical thinking. In this new volume, ideas on observational research, clinical narratives based on 3-LM group discussions, and adaptations of the model for training candidates show more experience, more depth, more answers, and, of course, new questions. Contributors from three regions of the IPA have written extended case studies of 10 psychoanalyses, rich in verbatim session material, focusing on the main dimensions of the patient’s psychic functioning, specific changes in the analytic process, and related interventional strategies. The reader will find, in the method and in the clinical narratives, new and clarifying points of view in the observation of transformations in patients in psychoanalysis and of the analysts’ techniques, useful both in professional development and in teaching candidates.

Description : ABOUT THE BOOK “The man with six weeks to live is anxious. He furls his brow, as he does countless times each day, and walks out of the Capitol Building, which is nearing completion. He is exhausted, almost numb.” It is a rare to find a historical work written in the present tense, but in Killing Lincoln: The Shocking Assassination that Changed America Forever, that is what Martin Dugard and Bill O’Reilly have done. In a USA Today interview, “O’Reilly says Dugard did the research on the Lincoln book, and ‘I wrote it. A true collaboration.’” While the book is light on attribution, it is a compelling and fast read. O’Reilly says he “wanted [Killing Lincoln] to read like a thriller... for people who are not particularly interested in history, and to show what true leaders are like.” It does indeed read like a thriller. Using the present tense gives the work immediacy and heightens pace, but at times also feels intrusive because the subject matter so clearly isn’t immediate today. A historical overview might be better served by the good old past tense. Nevertheless, the book brims with conspiracy facts, touching on mysteries never conclusively proven wrong–although they’ve also never been proven right. Most notable of these theories is one centering on Secretary of War Edwin Stanton, who was in possession of assassin John Wilkes Booth’s diary, thanks to the work of private investigator Lafayette Baker. Baker was personally hired by Stanton and gave him the diary, which he found in Booth’s hotel room. Furthermore, when Stanton finally released the diary, 18 pages were missing, raising many an eyebrow. The Stanton theory has, as the authors admit, been “repudiated and dismissed by the vast majority of trained historians.” EXCERPT FROM THE BOOK “Lincoln strides purposefully back and forth, unprotected and unafraid, as vulnerable as a man can be to sniper fire, the bombardment serving as the perfect distraction from his considerable worries. When will this war ever end?” Abraham Lincoln was a man racing his fate. He knew it, even as he gave his second inaugural speech before 50,000 drenched citizens. Among them was John Wilkes Booth, a young, handsome, famous actor who had originally planned to kidnap the president, but instead decided to murder him, along with General Ulysses S. Grant, Secretary of State Seward, and Vice President Andrew Johnson. On April 1, 1865, Lincoln awaited news from Grant, whose Union Army was engaged against General Robert E. Lee’s Army of Northern Virginia. A succession of horrific battles would end in Lee’s surrender when his ravaged army could no longer match the vast Union force. Lincoln’s terms of surrender were lenient, despite calls for vengeance. Amid Washington celebration, Lincoln became Booth’s obsession. He learned that the President and Mrs. Lincoln would attend “Our American Cousin” at Ford’s Theatre, one of Booth’s favorite haunts, on Good Friday. After a nerve-wracking day of preparation, he was a coiled spring. His co-conspirators knew their roles–Lewis Powell would kill Secretary of State Seward, George Atzerodt would kill Vice President Andrew Johnson, while Booth shot Lincoln and Grant, who would be with the President. To Booth’s frustration, Grant left the capitol that afternoon. But the show went on. As Booth shot Lincoln, Powell slashed at Seward in his bed, where he was recovering from a carriage accident. But Powell had to literally hack his way through Seward’s son, daughter, and two others first. Amazingly, all in the house survived. Only William Bell, “a young black servant in a pressed white coat,” who answered the door... ...buy the book to continue reading!

Description : Riveting accounts of the Cold War power struggles from the New York Times–bestselling author and “nation’s leading presidential historian” (Newsweek). The Crisis Years: A national bestseller on the complex relationship between President John F. Kennedy and Soviet Premier Nikita Khrushchev, this “definitive” history covers the tumultuous period from 1960 through 1963 when the Berlin Wall was built, and the Bay of Pigs invasion and the Cuban Missile Crisis brought the United States and Soviet Union to the brink of nuclear war (David Remnick, The New Yorker). “Impressively researched and engrossingly narrated.” —Los Angeles Times Mayday: On May Day 1960, Soviet forces downed a CIA U-2 spy plane flown by Francis Gary Powers, two weeks before a crucial summit. This forced President Dwight Eisenhower to decide whether to admit to Nikita Khrushchev—and the world—that he had secretly ordered the flight. Drawing on previously unavailable CIA documents, diaries, and letters, as well as the recollections of Eisenhower’s aides, Beschloss reveals the full high-stakes drama. “One of the best stories yet written about just how those grand men of diplomacy and intrigue conducted our business.” —Time At the Highest Levels: Cowritten with Strobe Talbott, At the Highest Levels exposes the complex negotiations between President George Bush and Soviet Premier Mikhail Gorbachev. In December 1989, the Berlin Wall had fallen, millions across the Eastern Bloc were enjoying new freedoms, and the USSR was crumbling. But a peaceful end to the Cold War was far from assured, requiring an unlikely partnership, as the leaders of rival superpowers had to look beyond the animosities of the past and embrace an uncertain future. “Intimate and utterly absorbing.” —The New York Times
