The American commitment to international human rights emerged in the 1970s not as a logical outgrowth of American idealism but as a surprising response to national trauma, as Barbara Keys shows in this provocative history. Reclaiming American Virtue situates this novel enthusiasm as a reaction to the profound challenge of the Vietnam War and its tumultuous aftermath. Instead of looking inward for renewal, Americans on the right and the left alike looked outward for ways to restore America's moral leadership. Conservatives took up the language of Soviet dissidents to resuscitate a Cold War narrative that pitted a virtuous United States against the evils of communism. Liberals sought moral cleansing by dissociating the United States from foreign malefactors, spotlighting abuses such as torture in Chile, South Korea, and other right-wing allies. When Jimmy Carter in 1977 made human rights a central tenet of American foreign policy, his administration struggled to reconcile these conflicting visions. Yet liberals and conservatives both saw human rights as a way of moving from guilt to pride. Less a critique of American power than a rehabilitation of it, human rights functioned for Americans as a sleight of hand that occluded from view much of America's recent past and confined the lessons of Vietnam to narrow parameters. It would be a small step from world's judge to world's policeman, and American intervention in the name of human rights would be a cause both liberals and conservatives could embrace.
most women seek individual self-expression and yearn for intimacy in relationships, yet they do not want to have to choose between the two. The desire to know and be known by another person intimately is intrinsic to the feminine way. In this fascinating book, Linda E. Savage brings you a road map to finding your uniquely female sexual expression and creating deeply satisfying and balanced relationships. It provides a blueprint for your own self-healing, and a clear step-by-step guide to building intimacy in relationships. Reclaiming Goddess Sexuality presents a model of female sexuality that blends the ancient wisdom of the Goddess cultures with current clinical findings to create a completely different view of sexual expression. The ancient matrilineal societies offer valuable insight into the mysteries of sexuality that can result in renewed sexual interest for contemporary women. The knowledge gained will change how women perceive themselves; and provide a new vision for healing individuals, couples, and communities in the dawning millennium.
Often thought of as the quintessential home or the Eden from which humanity has fallen, the natural world has long been a popular object of nostalgic narratives. In Reclaiming Nostalgia, Jennifer Ladino assesses the ideological effects of this phenomenon by tracing its dominant forms in American literature and culture since the closing of the frontier in 1890. While referencing nostalgia for pastoral communities and for untamed and often violent frontiers, she also highlights the ways in which nostalgia for nature has served as a mechanism for social change, a model for ethical relationships, and a motivating force for social and environmental justice.
Reclaiming the Wild Soul takes us on a journey into Earth's five great landscapes #151; deserts, forests, oceans and rivers, mountains, and grasslands #151; as aspects of our deeper, wilder selves. Where the inner and outer worlds meet we discover our own true nature mirrored in the Earth's wild beauty and fierce challenges. A powerful archetypal model for transformation, the #147;soulscapes" return us to a primal terrain rich in knowing, healing, and wholeness. To guide our path, each soulscape offers up wisdom in the form of soul qualities the modern world often undervalues and even undermines. We see how deserts model simplicity and silence, how forests help us make peace with uncertainty, how rivers and oceans reveal the power of flow, how mountains inspire our highest purpose, and how grasslands teach us about giving back. Weaving personal story with poetry, imagery, and explorations, Reclaiming the Wild Soul is simultaneously self-help and a courageous call to action. It is written for all those disillusioned with our hyper-paced, high-tech world, who decry what we are doing to the Earth, who feel the tug of their own wild souls longing for discovery and mystery #151; a new, yet ancient, way of being human.

Reclaiming Your Life: A Step-by-Step Guide to Using Regression Therapy to Overcome the Effects of Childhood Abuseby Alice Miller M. S. W. Jean C. Jenson
This book lays out a powerful program for healing the effects of childhood abuse. Provides practical and compassionate guidance on dismantling the childhood defenses of repression and denial in order to access buried experiences and emotions -- and by re-experiencing the pain to finally heal. Using examples from her private practice over the last 14 years, Jenson shows that 12-step and similar programs, as well as traditional therapies, do not fully deal with the phenomenon of repressed pain. Until this pain is "processed"-- retrieved from the unconscious, fully experienced, and grieved over -- she believes adults will be trapped in the patterns of childhood.
