Borges wrote a famous book about imaginary Beings. Astonishingly no one has written of imaginary meetings between historical icons. If Queen Victoria had met Coco Chanel what would they have said? This book imagines a number of meetings between some iconic characters; so in its pages John F Kennedy takes Grace Kelly to dinner, P.G Wodehouse and Samuel Beckett discuss cricket - both were passionate about the game - Casanova discusses seduction with Marilyn Monroe - both gave every impression of being passionate but really they were passionately needy.
Ted Hughes was one of the major poets of his generation. His older brother Gerald Hughes wrote a memoir of their relationship called Ted and I. The two brothers were close all their lives. This DVD is a one hour film based on that book. In this film Gerald remembers their childhood, how their mother Edith nurtured Ted's talents as a poet and how the countryside influenced him. The film looks also at Hughes' schooldays.Many members of Ted Hughes' family have contributed to the film as well as Gerald. It includes contributions from Carol Hughes, Frieda Hughes and Vicky Watling, Hughes' first cousin. Ted Hughes - Dreamtime follows Ted Hughes' progress from childhood through maturity, to his untimely death. Gerald is still living in Australia.
Northwest of Manhattan where the New York-New Jersey boundary crosses the tree-covered ridges and hollows ridges and hollows of the Ramapo Mountains there is a group of about 1,500 racially mixed people who have long been referred to by journalists and historians as the "Jackson Whites".
In a study combining tee disciplines of anthropology, sociology, folklore, and history, David Cohen found that the old stories about these people were legends, not history.
He found no reliable evidence that their ancestors were Tuscarora Indians, Hessian deserters from the British army, escaped slaves, and British and West Indian prostitutes imported by a sea captain named Jackson for the pleasure of British soldiers occupying Manhattan during the War for Independence.
David Cohen lived among the Ramapo Mountain People for a year, conducting genealogical research into church records, deeds, wills, and inventories in county courthouses and libraries. He established that their ancestors included free black landowners in New York City and mulattoes with some Dutch ancestry who were among the first pioneers to settle in the Hackensack River Valley of New Jersey.
In describing his findings and his experiences, Professor Cohen shows how their racially mixed ancestry, their special family and kinship system, and their intergroup attitudes and folkways distinguish and socially isolate these people as a separate racial group today, despite modern communications and transportation and their proximity to New York City.
2020 has been the year of the virus, and it will not be a mere footnote in history. This book reflects on the unprecedented changes to our lives and the impact on our behaviour as we lived through social isolation during the global COVID-19 pandemic. From sociable creatures of habit, we were forced into a period of uncertainty, restriction and risk, physically separated from families and friends. Packed with guidance and coping strategies for lockdown, this book, authored by top psychologist David Cohen, explores the impact of this wide-spread quarantine on our relationships, our children, our mental health and our daily lives. Benedictine monks, hermit popes, Dorothy Sayers, Daniel Defoe (who made the isolated Robinson Crusoe a hero), Sigmund Freud and a rabbi's angry dog are all among the cast of characters as we are taken on a whistle-stop tour through plagues in history and brain science, to the importance of introspection and how to make meaning from lockdown. In his trademark entertaining style, Cohen examines the psychology behind our behaviour during this unusual time to discover what we can learn about human nature, what lessons we can learn for the future, and whether we will.
Delve into Delia Smith, journey round Jamie Oliver, research Ramsay and you'll learn much about the way we live now - our fears, our snobberies, our hopes. We are in a foodie culture. And the person who started it all of was Isabella Beeton. The Victorian mistress of the house could face so many crises. Isabella told her readers what they had to do to produce the perfect dinner party, how to cope with teething, deal with constipation, keep the staff in check, bring up the children, deal with the domestics, check that the housekeeper was not nicking the housekeeping budget - and much else beside. Mrs Conscientious 1861 didn't need to buy another book to turn herself into the model housewife who would please her husband. She drew the line, however, at giving advice on what to do in bed.
Like its Nuremberg counterpart, the Tokyo Trial was foundational in the field of international law. However, until now, the persistent notion of 'victor's justice' in the existing historical literature has made it difficult to treat it as such. David Cohen and Yuma Totani seek to redress this by cutting through persistent orthodoxies and ideologies that have plagued the trial. Instead they present it simply as a judicial process, and in so doing reveal its enduring importance for international jurisprudence. A wide range of primary sources are considered, including court transcripts, court exhibits, the majority judgment, and five separate concurring and dissenting opinions. The authors also provide comparative analysis of the Allied trials at Nuremberg, resulting in a comprehensive and empirically grounded study of the trial. The Tokyo Tribunal was a watershed moment in the history of the Asia-Pacific region. This groundbreaking study reveals it is of continuing relevance today.
This is a Classic Edition of David Cohen s unique collection of interviews with eminent psychologists, first published in 1977. The book presents conversations with thirteen of the world s great psychologists, who dominated the subject from 1950 to 1980, and who shaped psychology as we know it today. Those interviewed include Burrhus Skinner, Donald Broadbent, Hans Eysenck and also R.D Laing, Noam Chomsky, and Niko Tinbergen.
This classic edition contains a newly written introduction which contextualises the interviews as a critique and diagnosis of the problems of contemporary psychology in the mid 1970 s. Together, the interviews cover a broad range of approaches, and the lively debates about theory, practice and what it means to be human which were occurring at that time. The book shows the different approaches each psychologist has to the subject and why, in terms of background, education, experimental research and personal preference, they came to the positions they hold.
The classic edition of "Psychologists on Psychology" provides an astute, critical snapshot of psychology at that time. It will be of great interest to anyone with an interest in psychology, the history of psychology, and the history of ideas."
Why is play so important in child development? Are children in today's society suffering from a lack of time for free play, with the emerging dominance of screen play? Can play therapy help to uncover, rescue and rehabilitate children living in abusive environments, or even in war-torn countries? Is play also important for adult development? Play is a learning experience and a crucial component to childhood development as it allows children to emulate the behaviours of those around them and to develop their social skills. In this engaging book, David Cohen examines how children play with objects, language, each other, and their parents to reveal how play enables children to learn how to move, think independently, speak and imagine. Cohen suggests that much of our formative experiences of play informs our future selves, and explores how play can help us to become better parents. This new edition of The Development of Play offers a fascinating review of the importance of play in all our lives. It includes the latest research on the impact of digital technology, brain development, cultural differences in play and toys, and also looks at why parents sometimes choose different toys for girls and boys. The book also provides advice and guidance on how parents can play creatively and imaginatively with their children. It is essential reading for Early Years, health care and education professionals as well as undergraduate students in developmental psychology and education.
How do we get from helpless baby to knowing teenager? What impact do television, computers and iPads, the internet, video games and evolving technology have on the way children's minds develop? Is cognition a question of learning and environment or of heredity? How we learn to think, perceive, remember, talk, reason and learn is a central topic in psychology - and one that sees constant new research. In this very readable book, David Cohen discusses the latest studies and covers all the controversies that have dogged the subject for nearly 150 years. He examines the work of the 'greats' like Piaget, Freud and Vygotsky and shows how the issues that have intrigued psychologists relate to any child growing up today. This book is for everyone who lives with, works with or studies children. David Cohen examines the fundamental issues of how children learn to read and write, of how their intellectual abilities are measured and the development of their morality. He examines child crime and looks at how modern media affect the way the child's mind develops. This fully updated new edition of How the Child's Mind Develops, which incorporates new extracts from a mother's weekly diary, is an integrated and thought-provoking account of the central issues in child development. Parents, professionals and students will find it an invaluable introduction.
"A Visual Language" is a practical introduction to the language of
the visual arts, with a strong, innovative methodology. This
expanded second edition begins with the basics of shape,
composition and drawing, and gradually moves on to explore more
complex arrangements, including abstract and representational
analysis and composition. Building on the principles of visual
language established in their last book, the authors now explore
three-dimensional forms of increasing complexity.
Does it make you a better parent if you have pioneered scientific theories of child development? In a unique study, David Cohen compares what great psychologists have said about raising children and the way they did it themselves. Did the experts practice what they preached? Using an eclectic variety of sources, from letters, diaries, autobiographies, biographies, as well as material from interviews, each chapter focuses on a key figure in historical context. There are many surprises. Was Piaget, the greatest child psychologist of the 20th century, the only man to try to psychoanalyse his mother? How many sons of great gurus have had to rescue their father from a police station as R.D Laing's son did? And why did Melanie Klein's daughter wear red shoes they day her mother died? The book covers early scientists such as Darwin, psychoanalysists such as Freud and Jung, to founders of developmental psychology including Piaget and Bowlby as well as Dr Spock. It gives a vivid, dramatic and often entertaining insight into the family lives of these great psychologists. It highlights their ideas and theories alongside their behaviour as parents, and reveals the impact of their parenting on their children. Close bonds, fraught relationships and family drama are described against a backdrop of scientific development as the discipline of psychology evolves. Great Psychologists as Parents will be absorbing reading for students in childhood studies, education and psychology and practitioners in psychology and psychoanalysis. It will also interest general readers looking for a parenting book with a difference.
The 16th annual International Conference on the Principles and Practice of Constraint Programming (CP 2010) was held in St. Andrews, Scotland, during September 6-10, 2010. We would like to thank our sponsors for their generous support of this event. This conference is concerned with all aspects of computing with constraints, including:theory,algorithms,applications,environments,languages,modelsand systems. We received a wide variety of submissions, each of which was reviewed by at least three referees. Referees were chosen for each submission by an initial bidding process where Program Committee members chose papers from their area of interest. The range of expertise represented by the large Program C- mittee meant that almost all submissions were reviewed by subject experts on the Program Committee, or by colleagues chosen by members of the Program Committee for their particular expertise. Papers weresolicitedeither as long (15 page), or short (8 page) submissions. Short-paper submissions were refereed to exactly the same high standards as long-paper submissions but naturally were expected to contain a smaller quantity of new material. Thus there is no disti- tion in these proceedings between short and long papers. I used the excellent EasyChair conference management system to support this process of reviewing, and for the collation and organization of these proceedings. Submissions were made either to the applications track or to the research track. Therewere101(23short)researchtracksubmissionsofwhich36(8short) wereaccepted,whichisa36%(35%ofshort)acceptancerate. Applicationstrack submissions received special consideration and the acceptance rate was sign- cantly higher than for the research track.
When a man becomes a father, it can be a very daunting time. He is suddenly thrust into a new and emotional world. He can feel unprepared (despite the preceding nine months of build-up), useless (despite all the "uses" the mother of his child could offer him), and apprehensive. However, the new father is about to embark upon the most exciting and rewarding experience of his life. But let s face it, no one teaches men exactly how to become fathers.
So, what does being a dad in the 21st Century mean? Dads today, more than ever, want to play an active role in their children s lives and development. To do this, fathers need to know how children grow up so that they can learn to cope with, play with, control, and love their kids in an intelligent way.
This book provides a guide for men on how to be a good dad and a supportive partner. Dealing directly with the key issues and the many stresses that fathers can face, it looks at the psychological research on child development, parenting, and fathering in particular. It examines such thorny topics as step-fatherhood, the changing relationship between partners, and sex after babies. It also offers valuable advice on problems all dads will face how to bond, how to provide sensible discipline, learning to play, and managing teenage tantrums and traumas.
The author, David Cohen, is a psychologist, and a father and step-father. In a quirky and anecdotal style, and drawing on eclectic material, this book tells men everything they need to know about being a dad.
In 1961 the poet and publisher Jeremy Robson arranged a poetry and jazz concert at Hampstead Town Hall. It was the first of hundreds of events. It's not often you get a line-up of star-studded poets but Poetry and Jazz in Concert did. Spike Milligan, Adrian Mitchell, Ted Hughes, Laurie Lee, Dannie Abse, even Jeremy Robson himself spoke their words at times. The jazz, specially written by Michael Garrick, featured some of the finest musicians of the day. This special 50th Anniversary DVD sees Dannie Abse, Alan Brownjohn and Jeremy Robson read their own work. Poetry may be immortal but poets are not; so Celia Mitchell reads her late husband Adrian's work, Jessie Lee reads poems by her late father Laurie, and Sasha Mitchell sings two of her father's biting songs. You'll never think of marrow bone jelly in quite the same way again.
