Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0068

(P/B) FINDING FLOW
THE PSYCHOLOGY OF ENGAGEMENT WITH EVERYDAY LIFE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0064

Part psychological study, part self-help book, "Finding Flow" is a prescriptive guide that helps us reclaim ownership of our lives. Based on a far-reaching study of thousands of individuals, "Finding Flow" contends that we often walk through our days unaware and out of touch with our emotional lives. Our inattention makes us constantly bounce between two extremes: during much of the day we live filled with the anxiety and pressures of our work and obligations, while during our leisure moments, we tend to live in passive boredom. The key, a...

THE SCIENCE OF PREDICTION
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0065

For centuries, scientists have strived to predict the future. But to what extent have they succeeded? Can past events - Hurricane Katrina, the Internet stock bubble, the SARS outbreak - help us understand what will happen next? Will scientists ever really be able to forecast catastrophes, or will we always be at the mercy of Mother Nature, waiting for the next storm, epidemic, or economic crash to thunder through our lives? In The Future of Everything, David Orrell looks back at the history of forecasting, from the time of the oracle at De...

(P/B) ALEXANDER'S TOMB
THE TWO-THOUSAND YEAR OBSESSION TO FIND THE LOST CONQUERER
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0038

Alexander the Great is a towering figure in world history, but despite our long-held fascination with him, his burial site is unknown. The search for Alexander's tomb began soon after his untimely death in 323 B.C. and continues even today. The epic pursuit of the tomb spans continents and centuries, and involves some of history's most iconic figures. This is the story not of a brief and spectacular life, but of a momentous and unexplained death, multiple burials, and the seemingly never-ending quest for a man-god's final resting place. Br...

POPULAR CULTURE AND HIGH CULTURE
AN ANALYSIS AND EVALUATION OF TASTE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0029

Is NYPD Blue a less valid form of artistic expression than a Shakespearean drama? Who is to judge and by what standards?In this new edition of Herbert Gans’s brilliantly conceived and clearly argued landmark work, he builds on his critique of the universality of high cultural standards. While conceding that popular and high culture have converged to some extent over the twenty-five years since he wrote the book, Gans holds that the choices of typical Ivy League graduates, not to mention Ph.D.’s in literature, are still very different from ...

(P/B) A BRIEF HISTORY OF THE SMILE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0001

Every smile is the product of physical processes common to all humans. But since the dawn of civilization, the upward movement of the muscles of the face has carried a bewildering range of meanings. Supreme enlightenment is reflected in the holy smile of the Buddha, yet the Victorians thought of open-mouthed smiling as obscene, and nineteenth-century English and American slang equated "smiling" with drinking whisky.In A Brief History of the Smile, Angus Trumble deftly combines art, poetry, history, and biology into an intriguing portrait o...

INTO THE MINDS OF BABES
HOW SCREEN TIME AFFECTS CHILDREN FROM BIRTH TO AGE FIVE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0040

As a mother, Lisa Guernsey wondered about the influence of television on her two young daughters. As a reporter, she resolved to find out. What she first encountered was tired advice, sensationalized research claims, and a rather draconian mandate from the American Academy of Pediatrics: no TV at all before the age of two. But like many parents, she wanted straight answers and realistic advice, so she kept digging: she visited infant-perception labs and child development centers around the country. She interviewed scores of parents, psycho...

ESSAYS ON PSYCHOANALYSIS AND LITERATURE
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0060

Promises, Promises is a delightful new collection of essays which sets out to make and break the links between psychoanalysis and literature. It confirms Adam Phillips as a virtuoso performer able to reach far beyond the borders of psychoanalysis into art, drama, poetry and history. This collection gives us insights into anorexia and cloning, the work of Tom Stoppard and A. E. Housman, the effect of the Blitz on Londoners, Nijinsky's diary and Martin Amis's Night Train, and provides a case history of clutter. In a final essay, the author a...

HOW THE WORLD’S NEW POWER BROKERS UNDERMINE DEMOCRACY, GOVERNMENT, AND THE FREE MARKET
Εκδότης: BASIC BOOKS
Κωδ. Πολιτείας: 0739-0059

It can feel like we’re swimming in a sea of corruption. It’s unclear who exactly is in charge and what role they play. The same influential people seem to reappear time after time in different professional guises, pressing their own agendas in one venue after another. According to award-winning public policy scholar and anthropologist Janine Wedel, these are the powerful "shadow elite," the main players in a vexing new system of power and influence.In this groundbreaking book, Wedel charts how this shadow elite, loyal only to their own, ch...
