Treatment chapters then offer concrete guidance for addressing each type of symptom, complete with case examples and session outlines. Anyone who treats or studies serious mental illness will find a new level of understanding together with theoretically and empirically grounded clinical techniques.

Stanley Park Companion (Paperback, New): Paul Grant, Laurie Dickson Stanley Park Companion (Paperback, New)

In "The Stanley Park Companion" Paul Grant and Laurie Dickson have combined social and natural history--memorabilia, photographs, illustrations, maps, drawings, anecdotes and remembrances--to reveal the many surprises tourists and hometown visitors can find in this thousand-acre sanctuary. From Easter Be-ins and Theatre Under the Stars to poet Pauline Johnson and lifeguard Joe Fortes, from wild wolves and miniature train rides to Skana the Killer Whale and the totem poles (which are the park's most visited spot), it's all here in this lively, sometimes quirky compendium of the world-famous park that has been the green heart of Vancouver for over 100 years.

Against the Odds - Scholars Who Challenged Racism in the Twentieth Century (Paperback): Benjamin P. Bowser, Louis Kushnick,... Against the Odds - Scholars Who Challenged Racism in the Twentieth Century (Paperback)

Over the course of the past century the struggle against racism took many forms, from petitions and lawsuits to sit-ins and marches. This book records the testimony of eleven scholar-activists who challenged prevailing racial beliefs and practices while engaging in resistance and reform. Included in this group are nine African Americans (Kenneth B. Clark, John Henrik Clarke, St. Clair Drake, W.E.B. Du Bois, John Hope Franklin, John Glover Jackson, Hylan Lewis, Frank Snowden Jr., and Robert C. Weaver); one Sri Lankan who lives and works in Britain (A. Sivanandan); and one white American (Herbert Aptheker).

Most of these men began their careers before World War II, in a time when biological conceptions of race dominated public policy and severely limited the opportunities available to people of color. By struggling with these impediments in their personal and professional lives, each in his own way helped redefine race as the social and cultural construct it has always been.

To highlight both the similarities and the differences in their experiences, the editors asked each of the subjects the same set of general questions about formative influences, major obstacles, and principal accomplishments. These were followed by more narrowly focused queries about specific writings. Most of the responses were recorded on tape as interviews; several were submitted as written reminiscences; and one, the essay on Du Bois, as the shared recollection of two associates who had worked closely with him for many years.

The result is a singular collection of autobiographical accounts that not only testify to the personal courage of these individuals in overcoming the ravages of racism but also documenttheir contributions to the establishment of a vital antiracist tradition in American thought and culture.

Postcards from the Cinema (Hardcover): Serge Daney Postcards from the Cinema (Hardcover)
Serge Daney; Translated by Paul Grant
R2,083 Discovery Miles 20 830 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"Postcards from the Cinema" is the book Serge Daney, one of the greatest of film critics, never wrote. It is based around an interview that was to be the starting point for a book, a project cut short by Daney's death. Postcards turns a history of cinema into a profound meditation on the art and politics of film. Daney's passionate and lucid engagement with film, combined with his concern for journalistic clarity, effectively created film criticism as a genre. Equally at home with the theories of Deleuze, Lacan and Debord as he was with the movie-making of Bunuel, Godard and Ray, Daney was also a fan of Jerry Lewis and Hitchcock. At the same time - and before his time - he championed the critical analysis of television and other audio-visual media. Long-awaited, this is the first book-length translation of Daney's work, testimony to a life lived with a fierce love of film.

Traditional Photographic Effects With Adobe Photoshop 2ed (Paperback, 2nd New edition): Paul Grant, Michelle Perkins Traditional Photographic Effects With Adobe Photoshop 2ed (Paperback, 2nd New edition)
Paul Grant, Michelle Perkins
R702 R554 Discovery Miles 5 540 Save R148 (21%) Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Appropriate for both professional and amateur photographers, this guide approaches Adobe Photoshop from the technical and artistic standpoint of traditional photography. Rather than emphasizing how to distort or create unusual or outlandish digital effects, it explores the use of Photoshop to achieve very realistic photographic images. In-depth instruction illustrates how to duplicate traditional photography and darkroom effects and techniques and how to use alternative films, specialized filters, lenses, and camera accessories. Every technique is demonstrated step-by-step so that photographers can easily follow and duplicate the effects with their own work. Although not a beginner's manual, this book is appropriate for all other users of Adobe Photoshop.

R783 Discovery Miles 7 830 Out of stock

A groundbreaking volume on the rich 13,000-plus-year history and culture of Connecticut's indigenous peoples More than 13,000 years ago, people settled on lands that now lie within the boundaries of the state of Connecticut. Leaving no written records and scarce archaeological remains, these peoples and their communities have remained unknown to all but a few archaeologists and other scholars. This pioneering book is the first to provide a full account of Connecticut's indigenous peoples, from the long-ago days of their arrival to the present day. Lucianne Lavin draws on exciting new archaeological and ethnographic discoveries, interviews with Native Americans, rare documents including periodicals, archaeological reports, master's theses and doctoral dissertations, conference papers, newspapers, and government records, as well as her own ongoing archaeological and documentary research. She creates a fascinating and remarkably detailed portrait of indigenous peoples in deep historic times before European contact and of their changing lives during the past 400 years of colonial and state history. She also includes a short study of Native Americans in Connecticut in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. This book brings to light the richness and diversity of Connecticut's indigenous histories, corrects misinformation about the vanishing Connecticut Indian, and reveals the significant roles and contributions of Native Americans to modern-day Connecticut.

The Ordinary Man of Cinema (Paperback): Jean Louis Schefer The Ordinary Man of Cinema (Paperback)
Jean Louis Schefer; Translated by Max Cavitch, Noura Wedell, Paul Grant
R305 R244 Discovery Miles 2 440 Save R61 (20%) Out of stock

The first English translation of a foundational work in cinema studies and the philosophy of film. When it was first published in French in 1980, The Ordinary Man of Cinema signaled a shift from the French film criticism of the 1960s to a new breed of film philosophy that disregarded the semiotics and post-structuralism of the preceding decades. Schefer describes the schizophrenic subjectivity the cinema offers us: the film as a work projected without memory, viewed by (and thereby lived by) a subject scarred and shaped by memory. The Ordinary Man of Cinema delineates the phenomenology of movie-going and the fleeting, impalpable zone in which an individual's personal memory confronts the cinema's ideological images to create a new way of thinking. It is also a book replete with mummies and vampires, tyrants and prostitutes, murderers and freaks-figures that are fundamental to Schefer's conception of the cinema, because the worlds that cinema traverses (our worlds, interior and exterior) are worlds of pain, unconscious desire, decay, repressed violence, and the endless mystery of the body. Fear and pleasure breed monsters, and such are what Schefer's emblematic "ordinary man" seeks and encounters when engaging in the disordering of the ordinary that the movie theater offers him. Among other things, Schefer considers "The Gods" in 31 brief essays on film stills and "The Criminal Life" with reflections on spectatorship and autobiography. While Schefer's book has long been standard reading in French film scholarship, until now it has been something of a missing link to the field (and more broadly, French theory) in English. It is one of the building blocks of more widely known and read translations of Gilles Deleuze (who cited this book as an influence on his own cinema books) and Jacques Ranciere.
