"Blow up all of their electrical power lines! This will cut off their water supply!" was the word from the chief terrorist to his lieutenant in America, so they started with small transfer stations for practice. After the second one was demolished, Ryan Masters asked for a community meeting to seek a way to deter them from disrupting their power. A former marine sergeant suggested a warning device he had experience with, and the community accepted it. Did it work properly, or did the terrorists override it? Was their water supply rendered useless? What other types of attack did the terrorists do to harm American citizens? The answer came directly from the pen of Simmons so you can find out!
Thomas E. Ketchum, better known as "Black Jack" Ketchum, and his small gang were on the run in Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona for less than four years, and their career of banditry lasted for little more than two years. At his hanging in 1901 he declared, "Hurry up boys, I'm due in Hell for dinner."
Estela Welldon brings together a generous selection derived from her many literary gems, in which she illustrates her groundbreaking--and sometimes explosive--studies of female sexuality and perversions, perverse transference, malignant bonding, perverse motherhood, and the impact upon children of viewing domestic violence. Along with these are vivid descriptions of group analytic psychotherapy with forensic patients and, uniquely, of the joint group treatment of incest survivors and perpetrators. She also outlines the development of forensic psychotherapy as a new field of clinical and academic endeavor and her involvement in this. In a series of interviews with Brett Kahr she describes her professional journey, from being trained by Horacio Etchegoyen in her native Argentina, followed by an eye-opening period at the Menninger Clinic, then eventually to London and a distinguished career at the Portman Clinic.
The uncle in question is Frederick Altamount Cornwallis, Fifth Earl of Ickenham, better known as Uncle Fred, an old boy of such a sunny and youthful nature that explosions of sweetness and light detonate all around him (in the course, it must be said, of a plot that involves blackmail, impersonation, knock-out drops, stealing, arrests and potential jewel-smuggling). This is Wodehouse at his very best, with sundered lovers, explorers, broke publishers and irascible aristocrats all eventually yielding to the magic, ever-so-slightly-unscrupulous touch of Uncle Fred. It is, as Richard Usborne writes, 'a brilliantly sustained rattle of word-perfect dialogue and narrative topping a very complicated and well-controlled plot'.
The classic - and criminally, now almost forgotten - history of class struggle during America's industrial beginnings. A story of brutal exploitation, massacres, and judicial murder - and how the largely European immigrant workforce fought back. The Molly Maguires, propaganda by the deed, Haymarket, Homestead, the Wobblies, Mooney-Billings, Sacco & Vanzetti, and much, much more. "DYNAMITE! Of all the good stuff, that is the stuff! Stuff several pounds of this sublime stuff into an inch pipe...plug up both ends, insert a cap with a fuse attatched, place this in the immediate vicinity of a lot of rich loafers who live by the sweat of other people's brows, and light the fuse. A most cheerful an...
Power is conventionally regarded as being held by social institutions. We are taught to believe that it is these social structures that determine the environment and circumstances of individual lives. In I Am Dynamite, the anthropologist Nigel Rappaport argues for a different view. Focusing on the lives and works of the writer and Auschwitz survivor Primo Levi, refugee and engineer Ben Glaser, Israeli ceramicist and immigrant Rachel Siblerstein, artist Stanley Spencer, and philosopher Friedrich Nietzsche, he shows how we can have the capacity and inclination to formulate 'life projects'. It is in the pursuit of these life projects, that is, making our life our work, that we can avoid the structures of ideology and institution.
