Myron Magnet's The Dream and the Nightmare argues that the radical transformation of American culture that took place in the 1960s brought today's underclass - overwhelmingly urban, dismayingly minority - into existence. Lifestyle experimentation among the white middle class produced often catastrophic changes in attitudes toward marriage and parenting, the work ethic and dependency in those at the bottom of the social ladder, and closed down their exits to the middle class. Texas Governor George W. Bush's presidential campaign has highlighted the continuing importance of The Dream and the Nightmare. Bush read the book before his first campaign for governor in 1994, and, when he finally met Magnet in 1998, he acknowledged his debt to this work. Karl Rove, Bush's principal political adviser, cites it as a road map to the governor's philosophy of ''compassionate conservatism.''

A moving and powerful account of the problems faced by a new generation, from crime to poverty to an increasingly divided society, from an extraordinarily accomplished young activist and entrepreneur. My name is Jeremiah Emmanuel. I’m twenty years old. I’m an activist, an entrepreneur, a former deputy young mayor of Lambeth and member of the UK Youth Parliament. I wanted to change the world, but the world I was born into changed me first. Raised in south London, I lived in an area where crime and poverty were everywhere and opportunities to escape were rare. Violence was accepted, prison was expected. Your best friend might vanish overnight, never to be seen again. That was the world I knew; the only one I thought was possible for people like me. But somehow, as I got older, I found my way to a different world: a place where people listened to you, where opinions were heard, where doors were opened, where there were opportunities around every corner. Everything had stayed the same and everything had changed. This is the story of how I did it, the people who helped me get there, and the huge hurdles I – and my entire generation – have to learn to face and overcome. It’s the story of how to move forward in a world that’s holding you back.

This book partakes of a long tradition of dream interpretation, but, at the same time, is unique in its cross-cultural and interdisciplinary methods and in its mix of theoretical and analytical approaches. It includes a great chronological and geographical range, from ancient Sumeria to eighteenth-century China; medieval Hispanic dream poetry to Italian Renaissance dream theory; Shakespeare to Nerval; and from Dostoevsky, through Emily Brontë, to Henry James. Rupprecht also incorporates various critical orientations including archetypal, comparative, feminist, historicist, linguistic, postmodern, psychoanalytic, religious, reader response, and self-psychology.

An analysis of the novels of Maturin, Gogol, Dostoevsky, Mann, Lovecraft and Pelevin through the prism of their interest in investigating the nature of the nightmare reveals the unstudied features of the nightmare as a mental state and traces the mosaic of coincidences leading from literary experiments to today’s culture of nightmare consumption.

The Nightmare Affair is the first in a gripping new urban fantasy trilogy by Mindee Arnett. Sixteen-year-old Dusty Everhart breaks into houses late at night, but not because she's a criminal. No, she's a Nightmare. Literally. Being the only Nightmare at Arkwell Academy, a boarding school for magickind, and living in the shadow of her mother's infamy, is hard enough. But when Dusty sneaks into Eli Booker's house, things get a whole lot more complicated. He's hot, which means sitting on his chest and invading his dreams couldn't get much more embarrassing. But it does. Eli is dreaming of a murder. Then Eli's dream comes true. Now Dusty has to follow the clues—both within Eli's dreams and out of them—to stop the killer before more people turn up dead. And before the killer learns what she's up to and marks her as the next target. At the Publisher's request, this title is being sold without Digital Rights Management Software (DRM) applied.

Treads a useful path between the nonsensical over-analysis and over-generalization that one tends to get from the more tabloid approach, and the dry academic stance that could rob the material of its creative potential... The authors are enthusiastic and creative enough to make this a useful book for a variety of professionals, producing concrete description for those who need this and ideas for others... it makes clear that there are structured and pragmatic ways of working with this material that can deepen insight and produce more creative use of the therapy setting... an enjoyable and useful read for a wide variety of professionals' - "Journal of Mental Health " This practical, eclectic guide points out that dreams are not the prerogative of psychoanalysts, and is the first to provide counsellors with a model and techniques for working with their clients' dreams and nightmares. Using case examples throughout, the authors demonstrate that, used with sensitivity, dreamwork can prove a fruitful therapeutic tool. The emphasis is on the fact that dreams are the creation of, and belong' to, the dreamer and that they offer a powerful means of access to an individual's emotional and creative life. Chapters describe objective methods of understanding and interpreting dream language and symbols, and vivid subjective methods by which clients can be encouraged to experience the emotional content of the dream in the counselling session. Different types of nightmare are defined and separate guidelines are outlined for working with and alleviating nightmare distress. Guidance is also given on how to deal with post-traumatic nightmares, night terrors and children's nightmares.

I was born during the depression of the 1930's so I learned early in life thatopportunities and other things in life were most precious when I worked hard and earned them. My father fell ill while I was in my teens so money was in short supply. I had to defer my law studies until after I was married and employed, but with the urging and support from my dear wife I graduated from LaSalle Extension University with a law degree after our four children were born . Since I was already established in the insurance claims business by then I chose to stay in that fi eld as a consultant rather than enter into a law practice. I am glad I did. I am a fi rm supporter of the constitution of the United States and as the years passed I watched the abuse heaped upon it by the federal government, and the judiciary in particular and that motivated me to write this book in the hopes that it might enlightening to enough people to cry for correction a difference might be effected .

This brilliant book brings Pan back to life by following C. G. Jung's famous saying: "The Gods have become our diseases." Chapters on nightmare panic, on masturbation, rape and nympholepsy, on instinct and synchronicity, and on Pan's female loves-echo, Syrinx, Selene, and the Muses-show the goat-God at work and play in the dark drives and creative passions of our lives. Hillman's insights present the archetypal figure in the depths of nature and archetypal psychology as a method of revelation.Pan and the Nightmare (which includes a full translation of Wilhelm Roscher's masterful 19th-century mythological-pathological treatise on Pan and the demons of the night) is the most radical study of this God ever undertaken.
