Summary : Derived from interviews with a wide range of people who experienced or observed New York's 1991 Crown Heights racial riots, Fires In The Mirror is as distinguished a work of commentary on black-white tensions as it is a work of drama. In August 1991 simmering tensions in the racially polarized Brooklyn, New York, neighborhood of Crown Heights exploded into riots after a black boy was killed by a car in a rabbi's motorcade and a Jewish student was slain by blacks in retaliation. Fires in the Mirror is dramatist Anna Deavere Smith's stunning exploration of the events and emotions leading up to and following the Crown Heights conflict. Through her portrayals of more than two dozen Crown eights adversaries, victims, and eyewitnesses, using verbatim excerpts from their observations derived from interviews she conducted, Smith provides a brilliant, Rashoman-like documentary portrait of contemporary ethnic turmoil.

Marking the septicentennial of his exile, the book's eighteen critical essays, three excerpts from an allegorical drama, and a portfolio of fourteen contemporary artworks address the issue of the poet's conflicted relation to orthodoxy.

Summary : The book discusses contemporary metaphysics of science and deals with the central question which ontology fits best with our knowledge of the world. Two competing positions in today's metaphysics of science are analysed: Humeanism and dispositionalism. There are physical and metaphysical arguments to show that orthodox Humeanism is in trouble. The unorthodox metaphysical turn consists in taking the fundamental properties to be relations rather than intrinsic properties. The book spells out in detail what an unorthodox version of Humeanism amounts to and shows that in turning unorthodox Humeanism offers a competitive metaphysical framework for science without commitment to irreducible causation.

Summary : One Hundred Unorthodox Strategies was compiled in the fifteenth century, during the Ming Dynasty, as a handbook of tactics based on Chinese military classics. Translated into English for the first time, this unique work draws on over two thousand years of experience in warfare to present a distillation of one hundred key strategic principles. Originally prepared as a text for students aspiring to high political positions in Confucian China, One Hundred Unorthodox Strategies is a compendium of Oriental strategies concisely stated and each individually illustrated with a description of battle from Chinese history. These historical examples shed new light on the often enigmatic formulations of the ancient strategists on subjects such as Strategic Power, defence, Vacuity, Spirit, and Victory. Acclaimed translator and Chinese military specialist Ralph Sawyer adds his own thoughtful commentary, deepening the reader's understanding of the intricacies of Chinese strategic thought.

Summary : Most major measures wind their way through the contemporary Congress in what Barbara Sinclair has dubbed “unorthodox lawmaking.” In this much-anticipated Fifth Edition of Unorthodox Lawmaking, Sinclair explores the full range of special procedures and processes that make up Congress’s work, as well as the reasons these unconventional routes evolved. The author introduces students to the intricacies of Congress and provides the tools to assess the relative successes and limitations of the institution. This dramatically updated revision incorporates a wealth of new cases and examples to illustrate the changes occurring in congressional process. Two entirely new case study chapters—on the 2013 government shutdown and the 2015 reauthorization of the Patriot Act—highlight Sinclair’s fresh analysis and the book is now introduced by a new foreword from noted scholar and teacher, Bruce I. Oppenheimer, reflecting on this book and Barbara Sinclair’s significant mark on the study of Congress.

Summary : UNORTHODOX LIFE. In the 1930's, Germany, the most powerful and ruthless nation in the world, decreed that our family was to be exterminated. Rudy Rosenberg, born in Belgium in 1930 found himself and his immediate family locked in Belgium. Rudy, his sister Ruth, Hillel his Poland born father and Frieda his German born mother, Jewish and Stateless were unable to break out of Europe. The family watched the growth of Hitler and his Nazi anti-Semitic policies with increased concernhoping that unlike in the Great War (1914-1918) Belgium's neutrality would be respected by Germany. 1935 Anti-Jewish laws began in Germany (Frieda's family would be murdered and wiped out during (1942-1943) 1938 Hitler marched into Czechoslovakia. Hitler marched into Austria 1939 Hitler invaded Poland (Hillel's family would be murdered and wiped out (1941-1942), we heard of Jews being hunted and killed by the German invaders. 1940 In April, Hitler invaded Denmark and Norway. 1940 in May, Hitler invaded Belgium, Holland and France. Rudy and his family watched and remembered the anti-Jewish vitriol that seeped into occupied Europe and even in previously benign Belgium. Starting in 1941 the first arrests of thousands of Belgian Jews came about. These were released through the personal intervention of Belgium's Queen Elizabeth. (These Belgian Jews would later be arrested and deported again in 1943). In 1942, Rudy, Ruth and countless Jewish students were forbidden to continue their schooling. The family was left with limited choices. We had to either try to flee to unoccupied Switzerland or hide in convents or Christian camps or private homes. A last alternative was to await the German troops for the deadly arrest and deportation to concentration camps mostly in Poland or Germany where swift death would be certain. In June 1942 we purchased fake identity papers so we could flee to Switzerland. Unfortunately we soon learned that this escape route was too dangerous and not practical. Our parents found a safe hiding place in the Ardennes for Ruth and Rudy. For a fee Frieda found a basement to hide in Ixelles, a suburb of Brussels in a private home. Hillel, for a much larger fee, found a hiding place in a private house ini Uccle, another suburb of Brussels. For safety reasons, after about three months Ruth and Rudy left the hotel in the Ardennes.Ruth and Rudy went to hide and joined with father in Uccle. Six months later, in March 1943, Rudy went to hide with Frieda in her Ixelles basement where they remained in hiding until they were finally liberated on the 3rd of September 1944 after hiding in the basement for 17 months. The family spent over two years, 27 months, 823 days in hiding. We then tried to resume our educations, live again and become normal people again. Eventually Rudy left Europe for the USA, joined the US Army during the Korean conflict. Frieda and Ruth joined Rudy three years later. In 1991 Rudy wrote and published "And Somehow We Survive" an account of the struggle of his family to survive. Now Rudy Rosenberg expands his life and the attempts to sort out the early life, survival and his arrival in the USA .There he details his bewildering coming to terms with his ethnic background, a faith he never knew and the religion he ran away from: AN UNORTHODOX LIFE.

Summary : 'A touch of Margaret Millar . . . worth watching' Sunday Telegraph Sculptress Katharine Craig doesn't often get to Lake Tahoe, where she stays with her cousin, Jon Craig. This time, though, Katharine arrives just in time to be swept into a whirl of parties, mystery... and murder. A series of art thefts has the townsfolk doing plenty of speculating and Cousin Jon is right at the centre of the mystery. But when a local art collector is found gruesomely impaled on the piece of sculpture he recently had shown to Katharine, idle speculation turns to serious investigation. It seems Katharine was the last person to see the victim alive, and Kevin Bryce of the Tahoe Police has a more than passing interest in getting to know her better...

Summary : Was Sigmund Freud a "Freudian"? If "Freudian" means an uninvolved, neutral interpreter of transference and resistance, the answer, according to this fascinating new book, is no, he was not. Based on existing full-length accounts by patients who were treated by Freud in the 1920s and '30s, this volume reveals an unexpected Freud - one who is quite different from the current stereotype. Presented together for the first time, these vivid, intimate biographies of the analytic process provide an illuminating close-up of Sigmund Freud at work. Through the words of his own patients, the reader is introduced to an organized, persistent, personally engaged, and expressive clinician who relied on free association, rather than transference and resistance analysis, to move the treatment. The authors examine these cases, along with those of the well-known Rat Man and Wolf Man, to see how Freud organized the treatment dyad in terms of its primary task and the division of labor between himself and his patient. They then compare their findings with Freud's papers on technique and with the dominant ideals of mainstream, contemporary psychoanalysis. Contrary to the capricious Freud of in-house clinical lore, the starched Freud of Strachey's Standard Edition, and the blank screen of traditional orthodoxy, Lohser and Newton demonstrate that Freud was explicit about defining the primary task (making the unconscious conscious), directively instituted free association as the means to accomplish the task, and actively monitored his patient's compliance with it. The authors also demonstrate the implications of Freud's actual approach for the nature of the analytic relationship. Since Freud relied on free association, rather than transference and resistance analysis, he could be more spontaneous and personal. In contrast, by making transference analysis the engine of the treatment, the contemporary clinician ends up subordinating the entirety of his or her behavior to protecting the transference; neutrality, unilaterality, and extreme abstinence are inevitable consequences. This may be a good way to do psychoanalysis, but it turns out not to be Freudian. Opening an important debate about the nature of Freudian practice as Sigmund Freud himself practiced it, Lohser and Newton contend that the cases presented in this volume clearly demonstrate that the dominant image of the Freudian analyst is not, in fact, classical, but rather a neo-orthodox stereotype.

Summary : The Unorthodox Haggadah is a way to enjoy the strange and wonderful world of religion, while skipping the boring parts. Ritual is at the core of every culture, but people are no longer into dogma. This book offers the ritual with a hilarious, irreverent twist. It is genuinely funny, fun to flip through, and a riot to use at the seder. Make sure everyone around your table has a copy for the next Passover. Sample text: Let's begin by drinking the blood of a virgin lamb off the tip of a flaming golden scimitar. In the event that you've de-virginized your lamb or misplaced your scimitar, use wine. Now, we toast the Israelites for rolling out of Egypt in time and generally being clever. Here are a few things they've invented since 1901: Jeans, lipstick, Hollywood, the fax machine, psychoanalysis, and the weekend. Thanks for getting us out of Egypt before shit got too real. Drink the second cup of wine while leaning to the left. “…light up your seder.” -Huffington Post "A cool, creative affront to Jewish grandmothers." -MediaBistro “Redefine Bitter Herbs…slightly insane.” -Tablet Magazine "It’s the Passover you never knew you always wanted...While there are many (many!) different Haggadah versions out there, this one is hands down our favorite (sorry Maxwell house). Genuinely funny, which puts it head and shoulders above 99.9% of the treacly crap people foist on unsuspecting seder guests to try to fool them into thinking they’re actually enjoying themselves.” -Heeb Magazine­
