Description : Why do leading political figures arise when they do? Does sibling position determine political destiny? Originally published in 1992, a leading Jungian analyst at the time, Louis Stewart wrote an intriguing study of the influence of family and sibling position on the destiny of the individual and on the future of society. He shows how the four basic sibling positions are related to corresponding styles of political leadership, and uses examples of US presidents and UK prime ministers to illustrate his point.

Description : Is Jung one of the most exciting and important thinkers of our age? Or is he just a dabbler in the occult and oriental mysticism? Although Jung has enjoyed wide popularity over time, he is still not accorded an appropriately honoured place in the history of modern thought. His interest in Oriental thought, alchemy and astrology has alienated many and he is often marginalized by scholars and academics. Originally published in 1992, this book aimed to rectify this state of affairs by showing that Jung was an important thinker in his own right and that his ideas play an important role at the heart of the intellectual debates of our age. The book explores Jung’s relationship with some of the great philosophical thinkers and movements such as Hegel, Nietzsche and existentialism, examines his links with the revolutionary ideas of modern physics and argues that his conception of the human psyche represents an important contribution to perennial questions about mind, human nature and human destiny.
Description : What is sandplay? Can it help adults as well as children? Originally published in 1992, the late Joel Ryce-Menuhin, leading exponent of sandplay, gives an engaging account of this increasingly popular Jungian therapy, drawing on his own wide experience of using sandplay with patients of all ages and backgrounds. He shows how it can help patients to express ‘beyond words and before words’ the deepest archetypal images from the unconscious, and how effective sandplay can be in the healing of pathology, neurosis and grief. A former concert pianist, who became a Jungian analyst, he was the first to introduce Jungian sandplay therapy to Britain.
