In The Bi-Personal Field: Experiences in Child Analysis, Antonino Ferro devised a new model of the relationship between patient and analyst. In the Analyst's Consulting Room complements and develops this model by concentrating on adults. From the standpoint of the "analytic field", Antonino Ferro explores basic psychoanalytic concepts, such as criteria for analysability and ending the analysis, transformations that occur during the session, the impasse and negative therapeutic reactions, sexuality and setting. The author explores certain themes in greater depth, including: * ways in which characters that appear during sessions can be interpreted * continual indications given by the patient during the emotional upheavals of the field * the function of "narrator" which the analyst takes on to mark the boundaries of the possible worlds. Through clinical narrative, Ferro renders Bion's often complex ideas in a very personal and accessible way, making this book invaluable for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists and psychologists.

Sometimes, an appropriate message at just the right time may be the difference between whether a person lives or dies; whether a person is victorious or is swept away in ignominious defeat; whether a person is miraculously healed, or passes away under the ravages of a wasting disease; whether a person is freed from the chains and shackles of a debilitating addiction, or remains an unwilling but helpless captive to destructive substances. At times like these it becomes incumbent that this life-saving message is committed to the hands of a faithful messenger, one who will not distort, pervert or re-engineer the message. It is noteworthy also that the more important a message is, the more careful is the selection process for the vessel chosen to bear the tidings. Since God and His Word are one, He jealously guards its impartation. “A Message from the Throne Room” is a prophetic word in season from God to His children and is designed for times such as these. God has chosen a vessel with whom He shares deep intimacy to bear the glad tidings that this book represents. It is obvious that some of the deep revelations could only have come from intense, “unalloyed” fellowship. Essentially, the book is about faith without which of course God says you cannot please Him. You need faith to receive healing, to face your fears, to discover your life’s purpose, to deal with low self-esteem. You also need faith to find direction as well as in times of need, while waiting on God and battling insecurities. Finally “A Message from the Throne” teaches you how to stay anchored during life’s storms and when you are feeling discouraged. It concludes by calling you to examine the sovereignty of God. Cast in the style of a daily devotional, this is a book that can be digested by both young and mature believers alike. Sit back and digest for your good and that of the world around you, this undiluted, refreshing Message from the Throne Room.

"Is there an idea or a dream that is lingering in the back of your mind this Christmas season?" asks the Reverend Robert H. Schuller in Joy to the World: Inspirational Christmas Messages from America's Preachers. "Is there some long-lost hope that you just cannot forget? God often comes through these thoughts. It is God at work in you." "Track what we call our good fortune and we shall see God clearly in our lives," says the Reverend Gardner C. Taylor in his message. He asked the question "Did you ever sit among your family and, strangely, feel a thankfulness which made you somewhat shamefacedly brush a tear away? You heard the angels sing!" "Christmas is a time of establishing and celebrating many traditions," begins the Reverend Paula White in her reflection. This is but a sampling of dozens of messages on the true meaning of Christmas included in this first book to celebrate the spirituality of Christmas by bringing together a diverse collection of messages from Christian leaders from across the country. Contributors to this collection represent congregations from Hawaii to New York to Atlanta and all the regions surrounding and in between.

Die Theorie der zentralen Orte in Israel und Deutschland

Zur Rezeption Walter Christallers im Kontext von Sharonplan und "Generalplan Ost"

Ist es möglich, zwischen dem israelischen „Sharonplan“ und dem „Generalplan Ost?“ eine konzeptionelle Verbindungslinie zu ziehen, die ihren Ursprung in W. Christallers „Theorie der zentralen Orte“ hat? Das Leitbild dieser 1933 veröffentlichten Theorie zielt auf eine funktionale Optimierung der Wirtschaftsfaktoren und der Verteilung der Bevölkerung im Raum. Joachim Trezib geht einer unerwarteten Parallelität nach, die er als Muster räumlicher Herrschaft sowohl in den NS-Plänen zur „Neuordnung“ Europas als auch in der israelischen Nationalplanung nach der Staatsgründung 1948 identifiziert. Der Vergleich zeigt einen exemplarischen Fall, wie sich die junge Wissenschaft der Raumplanung im 20. Jahrhundert als Herrschaftsmittel instrumentalisieren ließ.

How the Brilliant, Bombastic Roger Ailes Built Fox News--and Divided a Country

A revelatory journey inside the world of Fox News and Roger Ailes—the brash, sometimes combative network head who helped fuel the rise of Donald Trump NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • SOON TO BE A SHOWTIME LIMITED SERIES When Rupert Murdoch enlisted Roger Ailes to launch a cable news network in 1996, American politics and media changed forever. With a remarkable level of detail and insight, New York magazine reporter Gabriel Sherman puts Ailes’s unique genius on display, along with the outsize personalities—Bill O’Reilly, Sean Hannity, Megyn Kelly, Sarah Palin, Karl Rove, Glenn Beck, Mike Huckabee, Gretchen Carlson, Bill Shine, and others—who have helped Fox News play a defining role in the great social and political controversies of the past two decades. From the Clinton-Lewinsky scandal to the Bush-Gore recount, from the war in Iraq to the Tea Party attack on the Obama presidency, Roger Ailes developed an unrivaled power to sway the national agenda. Even more, he became the indispensable figure in conservative America and the man any Republican politician with presidential aspirations had to court. How did this man become the master strategist of our political landscape? In revelatory detail, Sherman chronicles the rise of Ailes, a frail kid from an Ohio factory town who, through sheer willpower, the flair of a showman, fierce corporate politicking, and a profound understanding of the priorities of middle America, built the most influential television news empire of our time. Drawing on hundreds of interviews with Fox News insiders past and present, Sherman documents Ailes’s tactical acuity as he battled the press, business rivals, and countless real and perceived enemies inside and outside Fox. Sherman takes us inside the morning meetings in which Ailes and other high-level executives strategized Fox’s presentation of the news to advance Ailes’s political agenda; provides behind-the-scenes details of Ailes’s crucial role as finder and shaper of talent, including his sometimes rocky relationships with Fox News stars such as O’Reilly, Hannity, and Carlson; and probes Ailes’s fraught partnership with his equally brash and mercurial boss, Rupert Murdoch. Roger Ailes’s life is a story worthy of Citizen Kane. Featuring a new afterword about Ailes’s epic downfall during the extraordinary 2016 election, The Loudest Voice in the Room is an extraordinary feat of reportage with a compelling human drama at its heart.

A Room of One's Own and Three Guineas

'Intellectual freedom depends on material things. Poetry depends on intellectual freedom. And women have always been poor...' In these two classic essays of feminist literature, Woolf argues passionately for women's intellectual freedom and their role in challenging the drive towards fascism and conflict. In A Room of One's Own she explores centuries of limitations placed on women, as well as celebrating the creative achievements of the women writers who overcame these obstacles. In this first history of women's writing, she describes the importance of education, financial independence, and equality of opportunity to creative freedom. Three Guineas was written under the threat of fascism and impending war. A radical articulation of Woolf's pacifist politics, it investigates the causes of gender inequalities and the ways in which women's historic outsider position make them crucial in the prevention of war. Both these works started life as talks to groups of young women, and their engaging wit and informality establish Woolf as one of the twentieth-century's greatest essayists. Their arguments continue to reverberate in feminist discourse to this day. ABOUT THE SERIES: For over 100 years Oxford World's Classics has made available the widest range of literature from around the globe. Each affordable volume reflects Oxford's commitment to scholarship, providing the most accurate text plus a wealth of other valuable features, including expert introductions by leading authorities, helpful notes to clarify the text, up-to-date bibliographies for further study, and much more.
