The most famous compendium of information on the occult and the first comprehensive work of its kind, this volume originally appeared in 1920. Compiled by Lewis Spence, a scholar of occult-related topics, it organizes a truly vast amount of information into 2,500 dictionary-style entries (many of which run to several pages). These entries encompass both familiar terms ("abracadabra," "poltergeist," "spells," "vampire") and more arcane topics ("Martian language," "bottle imps," "magic darts," "tinker's talk"). Numerous profiles of historical figures with ties to the occult include John Dee, Mary Baker Eddy, and Catherine de Medici. An oft-cited resource and a classic of its genre, this remarkable compilation of history and lore offers an essential tool for a fuller understanding of occult subjects. Index.

This anthology--a companion to New Plays from the Abbey Theatre, Volume One (1993-1995) and Volume Two (1996-98)--offers the best new plays from Ireland's Abbey Theatre. In Hugh Leonard's Love in the Title, a woman's visit to the Irish countryside leads to a surreal meeting with her own mother as a thirty-year-old in 1964 and her grandmother as a twenty-year-old in 1932. The frank exchanges that mark this meeting allow the women to remain in and represent their times, yet still communicate with each other. The next play, Frank McGuinness's Dolly West's Kitchen is set a small house in Donegal, 1944, a meeting place where two American GI's, a British Army captain and the fiercely nationalistic West family share meals and talk of love, war and betrayal. Finally, The Muesli Belt by Jimmie Murphy examines the ramifications of renewal and relocation in the urban centers of western Ireland, as a greedy property developer bent on buying up everything in sight to build high-rent flats and chic eateries throws locals into dispair.

We're updating and revising our bestselling LifeGuides to make them even more effective for small group Bible study!

New features of the revised LifeGuides include special options for group activities, additional questions for personal reflection, a "Now or Later" section with practical follow-up activities for use after the study or between sessions, expanded and improved leaders' notes and an attractive, redesigned format for easier reading.

Beginning with the new guides Miracles and Pleasing God (released in February 1999), all new LifeGuides will be presented in the new format. In addition, more existing volumes will be revised every year to ensure that all our LifeGuides continue to be effective Bible study resources for the twenty-first century.

The direction and guidance they give us is practical, concrete, reasonable and fruitful. By reading Proverbs we discover the vital importance of learning to live wisely.

Schatzberg's Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology is a meticulously researched, yet down-to-earth guide for practitioners prescribing psychotropic medications to individuals with psychiatric disorders or symptoms mandating treatment. The ninth edition offers up-to-date information on current drugs, interactions, side effects, and dosing guidelines, and retains the strengths and features that have made it a standard text for trainees and practicing clinicians. The authors also include a new chapter on important developments in laboratory-guided pharmacotherapy, including pharmacogenomic testing, neurocognitive testing, quantitative EEG, and neuroimaging. Although the book's primary purpose is to provide the reader-practitioner with basic and practical information regarding the many classes of psychiatric medications, the authors stress that understanding how to select and prescribe psychotropic medications does not obviate the basic need to comprehensively evaluate and understand psychiatric patients. Accordingly, the book draws on the authors' clinical experience, as well as on the scientific literature, resulting in an accessible, yet rigorous text. Features that have helped cement this book's reputation include: Coverage is not limited to long-standing and newly approved medications, but also includes agents that are likely to receive approval from the FDA in the near future, ensuring that the reader stays up-to-date. References are provided for key statements, and each chapter is then followed by a list of selected relevant articles and books for readers who want to go beyond the material presented, making for a leaner, more reader-friendly guide. Dozens of summary tables with key information on classes of psychotropics function as quick-reference guides, promoting learning and serving as convenient resources for overloaded clinicians. The appendix offers two kinds of suggested readings. The first, for clinicians, is invaluable to trainees, while the second, for patients and families, helps point clinicians to books aimed at a lay audience to supplement information provided to patients. Staying abreast of both new medications and promising treatment protocols is essential in this rapidly evolving field. Schatzberg's Manual of Clinical Psychopharmacology delivers authoritative information in a friendly, collegial style, ensuring that both students and practicing clinicians are equipped to provide a superior standard of care.

R211 Discovery Miles 2 110 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Making slime is magical. Combine a few ingredients, mix by hand and suddenly a smooth (or fluffy, depending on the recipe) semi-solid, incredibly pliable but not-sticky goo appears. It begs to be touched. Poke, knead, pull on the toffee-like substance to achieve a calm state of mind. That's the meditative part of slime; it taps into the pleasure centres of the brain. Slime is also a visual feast: add food colouring, metallic paints, beads, glitter, even tiny toys to it. The result can look like ice cream or butter (don't eat it!); unicorn rainbow or galaxy goo; clouds, a fishbowl, Nutella--anything is possible. The Zen of Slime is a visual immersion into the sublime that is slime. Divided into themed chapters--air, water, fire and earth--the book features the Instagram artists who make and sell slime. They share their favourite photographs, recipes and tips. There's an endless variety of add-ins and different combinations of ingredients. Keeping track of this is as much fun as making slime, so notebook pages are included for jotting down potions. This is the next level of slime; sophisticated and artistic, for visionaries who recognise the special nature of this incredible stuff. (Or just enjoy looking at pictures of it).
