"Blow up all of their electrical power lines! This will cut off their water supply!" was the word from the chief terrorist to his lieutenant in America, so they started with small transfer stations for practice. After the second one was demolished, Ryan Masters asked for a community meeting to seek a way to deter them from disrupting their power. A former marine sergeant suggested a warning device he had experience with, and the community accepted it. Did it work properly, or did the terrorists override it? Was their water supply rendered useless? What other types of attack did the terrorists do to harm American citizens? The answer came directly from the pen of Simmons so you can find out!
Labour disputes have produced more violence over a longer period in the US than any other industrialised nation in the world. From 1890 to 1930, hardly a year passed without a serious - and often deadly - clash between workers and management. Written in the 1930s and with a new introduction by Mike Davis, DYNAMITE recounts a fascinating and largely forgotten history of class and labour struggle in America's industrial beginnings.
Estela Welldon brings together a generous selection derived from her many literary gems, in which she illustrates her groundbreaking--and sometimes explosive--studies of female sexuality and perversions, perverse transference, malignant bonding, perverse motherhood, and the impact upon children of viewing domestic violence. Along with these are vivid descriptions of group analytic psychotherapy with forensic patients and, uniquely, of the joint group treatment of incest survivors and perpetrators. She also outlines the development of forensic psychotherapy as a new field of clinical and academic endeavor and her involvement in this. In a series of interviews with Brett Kahr she describes her professional journey, from being trained by Horacio Etchegoyen in her native Argentina, followed by an eye-opening period at the Menninger Clinic, then eventually to London and a distinguished career at the Portman Clinic.
More About Twelve Days of Christmas Everybody knows the Twelve Days of Christmas, and this is Napoleon Dynamite's inimitable take on the beloved traditional carol. Napoleon's version reflects his world, so the customary bells a-ringing and Lords a-leaping, etc., give way to Nessies swimming, quesadillas and, of course, FIVE DE-LIC-IOUS BASS. Anyone familiar with Napoleon will instantly recognize the offbeat humor that made the movie a cult classic. Pretty much the perfect stocking stuffer!
