The Dream: The Vision of the Night

A classic in the field of dream analysis, The Dream: The Vision of the Night is a collection of essays, lectures, and vignettes by Max Zeller whose career included a law degree, a brief imprisonment in a Nazi Concentration Camp, study at the Jung Institute in Zurich, Switzerland, and thirty years of in-depth work as a Jungian analyst. In the eighteen pieces of this collection, Zeller intersperses theoretical writings, compassionate and incisive case studies, and powerful, almost haiku-like reminiscences of certain incidences in his life, from his meetings with C.G. Jung to his impressions of life in pre-war Nazi Germany. The Dream: The Vision of the Night is the best example of amplification of Jungian principles that can be found. Neither pure research nor pure memoir, the collection is an affective combination of both, and as such best portrays the spirit of its author: always restless and searching, always compassionate and open-minded, and above all, always fascinated by the mystery and power of our dreams.

Surrealism and Documentary Photography in Interwar Paris

This book offers the first detailed analysis of how the Surrealists utilized the tactics of documentary and how Surrealist ideas in turn influenced the development of documentary photography. The last two decades have seen the re-emergence of Surrealist photography, but with an emphasis on work made in the studio or the darkroom. This, however, is a study of what Louis Aragon called 'surrealist realism': the exploration of a real-life surreality encountered on the streets of the city. This book throws new light on Surrealism, emphasizing its connections with the everyday life of the city.

In this world of Mc Aloran's there is no definitive suffering. One accumulates scars like years; not always aware of each day, each slice into flesh. It is both an accumulative living and dying; a horror and a wry smile at the ongoing absurdity and meaninglessness of existence. from the introduction by Gillian Prew

Savage Junctures

Sergei Eisenstein and the Shape of Thinking

Eisenstein delighted in unlikely juxtapositions, being apt to cite from Stalin and Disney in one breath. The heterogeneity underlying his work is breathtaking and his lack of decorum and refusal to be categorised tend to make critics uneasy but not Anne Nesbet. Based on extensive research in the Eisenstein archives, her book is an original, beautifully written exploration of Eisenstein’s omnivorous consumption of high and low culture and his wide-ranging experiments in ‘thinking in pictures’. Savage Junctures provides fresh insights into Eisenstein’s films and writings. It examines the multiple contexts within which his films evolved and Eisenstein’s appropriation of all of world culture as his source. Like Eisenstein himself, Anne Nesbet is particularly interested in the possibilities of visual image making and each chapter addresses the problem of his image-based thinking from a different perspective. Each chapter also offers a fundamentally new interpretation of the films and writings that make up his oeuvre. This is a major new contribution to studies in Soviet cinema and culture and to the field of film studies.

Embodied Utopias

Gender, Social Change and the Modern Metropolis

Utopia has become a dirty word in recent scholarship on modernism, architecture, urban planning and gender studies. Many utopian designs now appear impractical, manifesting an arrogant disregard for the lived experiences of the ordinary inhabitants who make daily use of global public and private spaces. The essays in Embodied Utopias argue that the gendered body is the crux of the hopes and disappointments of modern urban and suburban utopias of the Americas, Europe and Asia. They reassess utopian projects - masculinist, feminist, colonialist, progressive - of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries; they survey the dystopian landscapes of the present; and they gesture at the potential for an embodied approach to the urban future, to the changing spaces of cities and virtual landscapes.

Ian McEwan

In this survey Ian McEwan emerges as one of those rare writers whose works have received both popular and critical acclaim. His novels grace the bestseller lists, and he is well regarded by critics, both as a stylist and as a serious thinker about the function and capacities of narrative fiction. McEwan's novels treat issues that are central to our times: politics, and the promotion of vested interests; male violence and the problem of gender relations; science and the limits of rationality; nature and ecology; love and innocence; and the quest for an ethical worldview. Yet he is also an economical stylist: McEwan's readers are called upon to attend, not just to the grand themes, but also to the precision of his spare writing. Although McEwan's later works are more overtly political, more humane, and more ostentatiously literary than the early work, Dominic Head uncovers the continuity as well as the sense of evolution through the oeuvre. Head makes the case for McEwan's prominence - pre-eminence, even - in the canon of contemporary British novelists.

The book is about good leadership, for leaders to lead by actions and not by words of lies from their mouths. Leaders should be doggedly determined to give the people fair leadership. Nakinostran was struck and devastated by the mercilessly cruelest earthquake disaster. In the aftermath of the earthquake, there were spontaneous nuclear plant meltdowns across the country. The survivors watched helplessly all the nuclear plants melting down like candle waxes. Nakinostran was a well developed nation with greatest leaders seen by the people as only second to God because of their excellent leadership of oneness, love, peace and development and equality, not this fake equality we only let out of our mouths. The people, like any other, seeing the level of devastations, had different personal views, doubts and fears. They saw these devastations as their greatest obstacle to returning to a normal life again. Most of them had lost all hopes in life because of the malignant complications of the wickedest earthquake. Many people said that’s it; Nakinostran is finished. But the doggedly determined young president, Henry Rupchang was only angered and bitterly touched at heart by the deaths. He had the courage and determination that the country will rise again. He was undaunted. He mustered what supports he could for the reconstructions of the country. He continuously told his people that nothing is impossible under this cone-shape heaven that ‘umbrellaed’ our earth. His commitment was undiminished and despite the devastations, he unflinchingly told them the nation will rise again. All the leaders in the country bust the gut to reconstruct the country and with unity they worked as a people, though not without some distractions from some protesters. The leaders didn’t lost a second in their sleep...did the president in the end, it was a heartwarming people.

The Year of Eating Dangerously

A Global Adventure in Search of Culinary Extremes

Fugu. Dog. Cobra. Bees. Spleen. A 600,000 SCU chili pepper. All considered foods by millions of people around the world. And all objects of great fascination to Tom Parker Bowles, a food journalist who grew up eating his mother's considerably safer roast chicken, shepherd's pie and mushy peas. Intrigued by the food phobias of two friends, Parker Bowles became inspired to examine the cultural divides that make some foods verboten or "dangerous" in the culture he grew up with while being seen as lip-smacking delicacies in others. So began a year-long odyssey through Asia, Europe and America in search of the world's most thrilling, terrifying and odd foods. Parker Bowles is always witty and sometimes downright hilarious in recounting his quest for envelope-pushing meals, ranging from the potentially lethal to the outright disgusting to the merely gluttonous—and he proves in this book that an open mouth and an open mind are the only passports a man needs to truly discover the world.
