Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy: A Comprehensive Method of Treating Human Disturbances, Revised and Updatedby Albert Ellis
[from inside flaps] "Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy, a seminal work in twentieth-century psychology, was the first book on rational-emotive therapy. Written for psychotherapists, it soon became one of the most important and most quoted books in the field. Although intended for professionals, it has since become a widely popular and indispensable self-help book. This updated and revised edition reflects new findings by Dr. Albert Ellis and his colleagues. Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy started the cognitive-behavior movement in psychotherapy. When Dr. Ellis began practicing this groundbreaking new therapy in 1955, his was a little-heard voice. Two main forms of psychotherapy, both passive, then dominated the field: Freudian psychoanalysis, with its interminable listening to troubled people's complaints and supposedly unraveling their unconscious "complexes" and purportedly healing them of childhood traumas; and Carl Rogers's client-centered therapy, which forbade therapists from using any active-directive techniques to show clients what really troubled them or what to do about it. Other forms of therapy, such as Adlerian, Gestalt, Jungian, and behavior therapy, existed but had few followers. Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy helped change all this. Including Dr. Ellis's major papers, it was the pioneering work in cognitive-behavior therapy and presented a revolutionary, powerful, brief, and effective psychological treatment that was deeper and more intensive than either psychoanalysis or the therapy of Rogers and his followers. Dr. Ellis's new approach caught the imagination of practitioners all over the world, and by the late 1960s he was joined by Aaron Beck, William Glasser, Donald Meichenbaum, and a host of other therapists who primarily followed his theories and practices. By the 1970s, Rational-Emotive Behavior Therapy (REBT) and cognitive-behavior therapy were supported by scores of experimental studies and were being used by innumerable mental health practitioners. Today, REBT continues to be increasingly popular and effective. Reason and Emotion in Psychotherapy helped so many therapists and laypeople over the years that a new edition might have seemed unnecessary. But psychotherapy, including REBT, moves on, and Dr. Ellis has expanded his original theory and practice and has added a large number of cognitive, emotive, and behavioral techniques to its innovative multimodal approach. This revised edition therefore includes all the important original theories and practices, as well as a significant number of corrections and changes derived from clinical experience and experimentation, featuring a revision of its famous ABC's on human neurosis. A great many of the therapeutic techniques have been perfected since 1955, and the teachings of unconditional self-acceptance (USA) have been updated."
This book provides a significant rereading of political and ecclesiastical developments during the English Revolution, by integrating them into broader European discussions about Christianity and civil society. Sarah Mortimer reveals the extent to which these discussions were shaped by the writing of the Socinians, an extremely influential group of heterodox writers. She provides the first treatment of Socinianism in England for over fifty years, demonstrating the interplay between theological ideas and political events in this period as well as the strong intellectual connections between England and Europe. Royalists used Socinian ideas to defend royal authority and the episcopal Church of England - from both Parliamentarians and Thomas Hobbes. But Socinianism was also vigorously denounced and, after the civil wars, this attack on Socinianism was central to efforts to build a church under Cromwell and to provide toleration. The final chapters provide a new account of the religious settlement of the 1650s.
The rise of religious fundamentalism in different parts of the world in recent years and its association with terrorism has led to renewed interest in the nature of religion and its compatibility with Western institutions. Much of the focus of this new interest has contrasted religion and science as systems of knowledge. This book also emphasizes the difference between religion and science as means for understanding causal relationships, but it focuses much more heavily on the challenge religious extremism poses for liberal democratic institutions. The treatment contains a discussion of human psychology, describes the salient characteristics of all religions, and contrasts religion and science as systems of thought. Historical sketches are used to establish a link between modernity and the use of the human capacity for reasoning to advance human welfare. The book describes the conditions under which democratic institutions can advance human welfare, and the nature of constitutional rights as protectors of individual freedoms. Extremist religions are shown to pose a threat to liberal democracy, a threat that has implications for immigration and education policies and the definition of citizenship.
The contribution of Neandertals to the biological and cultural emergence of early modern humans remains highly debated in anthropology. Particularly controversial is the long-held view that Neandertals in Western Europe were replaced 30,000 to 40,000 years ago by early modern humans expanding out of Africa. This book contributes to this debate by exploring the diets and foraging patterns of both Neandertals and early modern humans. Eugène Morin examines the faunal remains from Saint-Césaire in France, which contains an exceptionally long and detailed chronological sequence, as well as genetic, anatomical, and other archaeological evidence to shed new light on the problem of modern human origins.
Euclides da Cunha's classic account of the brutal campaigns against religious mystic Antonio Conselheiro has been called the Bible of Brazilian nationality. "Euclides da Cunha went on the campaigns [against Conselheiro] as a journalist and what he returned with and published in 1902 is still unsurpassed in Latin American literature. Cunha is a talent as grand, spacious, entangled with knowledge, curiosity, and bafflement as the country itself. ... On every page there is a heart of idea, speculation, dramatic observation that tells of a creative mission undertaken, the identity of the nation, and also the creation of a pure and eloquent prose style."--Elizabeth Hardwick, Bartleby in Manhattan

Reclaiming the Petition Clause: Seditious Libel, "Offensive" Protest, and the Right to Petition the Government for a Redress of Grievancesby Ronald J. Krotoszynski
Since the 2004 presidential campaign, when the Bush presidential advance team prevented anyone who seemed unsympathetic to their candidate from attending his ostensibly public appearances, it has become commonplace for law enforcement officers and political event sponsors to classify ordinary expressions of dissent as security threats and to try to keep officeholders as far removed from possible protest as they can. Thus without formally limiting free speech the government places arbitrary restrictions on how, when, and where such speech may occur.

A study of changing Japanese understandings of "nature" from the mid-19th century to the early 20th century.
Covering a time of great hope and incredible change, Reconstruction and Reform is a dramatic look at life after the Civil War in the newly re-United States. Railroad tycoons were roaring across the country. New cities sprang up across the plains, and a new and different American West came into being: a land of farmers, ranchers, miners, and city dwellers. Back East, large scale immigration was also going on, but not all Americans wanted newcomers in the country. Technology moved forward: Thomas Edison lit up the world with his electric light. And social justice was on everyone's mind with Carry Nation wielding a hatchet in her battle against drunkenness and Booker T. Washington and W. E. B. DuBois counseling newly freed African Americans to behave in very different ways. Through it all, the reunited nation struggles to keep the promises of freedom in this exciting chapter in the A History of US. This text is listed as an example that meets Common Core Standards in English language arts in grades 4-5 at http://www.corestandards.org.]

In thirteen wide-ranging essays, scholars and students of Asian and women's studies will find a vivid exploration of how female roles and feminine identity have evolved over 350 years, from the Tokugawa era to the end of World War II. Starting from the premise that gender is not a biological given, but is socially constructed and culturally transmitted, the authors describe the forces of change in the construction of female gender and explore the gap between the ideal of womanhood and the reality of Japanese women's lives. Most of all, the contributors speak to the diversity that has characterized women's experience in Japan. This is an imaginative, pioneering work, offering an interdisciplinary approach that will encourage a reconsideration of the paradigms of women's history, hitherto rooted in the Western experience.

The thesis of this book is straightforward. The most important element in economics is missing, and its rediscovery is priming a revolution the likes of which has occurred only three times in more than 750 years. The Scholastic economics of Thomas Aquinas was comprised of four key elements: the theory of production, or how much gets produced; the theory of justice in exchange, or how one is compensated through the sale of goods for contributing to production; the theory of final distribution, or who gets to consume goods; and the theory of consumption (utility), or which goods people prefer to consume, according to Mueller (director of the Economics and Ethics Program at the Ethics and Public Policy Center, self-described as "Washington, D. C. 's premier institute dedicated to applying the Judeo-Christian moral tradition to critical issues of public policy," and president of a firm specializing in economic forecasting and policy analysis). His central argument in this text is that the oversimplification of Scholastic economics that began with Adam Smith's limiting economics to merely production and exchange and then partially corrected by the neoclassicists reincorporation of the theory of utility needs to be brought full circle by reintroducing the theory of final distribution. His goal then in this wide-ranging work is to describe for the general reader what bringing the theory of final distribution back into consideration would mean for economic theory and particularly for its practical applications.

For over twenty years Charles C. Ragin has been at the forefront of the development of innovative methods for social scientists. In Redesigning Social Inquiry, he continues his campaign to revitalize the field, challenging major aspects of the conventional template for social science research while offering a clear alternative. Redesigning Social Inquiry provides a substantive critique of the standard approach to social research- namely, assessing the relative importance of causal variables drawn from competing theories. Instead, Ragin proposes the use of set-theoretic methods to find a middle path between quantitative and qualitative research. Through a series of contrasts between fuzzy-set analysis and conventional quantitative research, Ragin demonstrates the capacity for set-theoretic methods to strengthen connections between qualitative researchers' deep knowledge of their cases and quantitative researchers' elaboration of cross-case patterns. Packed with useful examples,Redesigning Social Inquiry will be indispensable to experienced professionals and to budding scholars about to embark on their first project.
