The Sense of an Interior is a fascinating exploration of domestic space and of the ways it determines how writers work. The book looks at four famous figures - Emily Dickinson, Sigmund Freud, Helen Keller, and Marcel Proust, and examines the relationship between their work and the spaces where they wrote.
Maailmaa parannetaan tuoppi kerrallaan Kuinka kävi, kun Pietari Suuri päätti tehdä venäläisistä oluenjuojia? Miksi Lutherin Saksassa olut veti rintamalinjat uskontokuntien välille, ja miksi maailmankuulu kirjailija, presidentti Václav Havel meni panimoon töihin? Entä kuinka kävi puolalaisten olutpuolueelle? Olut on aina ollut olennainen osa eurooppalaista historiaa. Kolpakolliset ovat liikuttaneet sotajoukkoja voittoon sekä rakentaneet kansojen välistä ystävyyttä, ja onpa tuoppi muuttanut monen merkkimiehen elämääkin. Tiesitkö esimerkiksi, ettei Louis Pasteurin mieä siintänyt bakteereista puhdas maitolasillinen vaan täydellinen tuoppi ranskalaista mallasjuomaa? Kuohuvaa historiaa tarinoi oluen ja historian yhteyksistä vivahteikkaan täyteläisesti, eikä tätä kirjaa ole syytä lukea kuivin suin. Kirjan jokaisessa luvussa on esitelty aiheeseen liittyvä olut. Huurteinen malja sille!

In Decoding the Past, Peter Loewenberg has collected eleven of his brilliant essays on psychohistory, a discipline that has emerged from the synthesis of traditional historical analysis and clinical psychoanalysis. He surveys this relatively new field--its methods and its problems--to show the special contributions that psychoanalysis can make to history. He then further explores the psychohistorical method by applying it to studies of personality, cultures, groups, and mass movements, demonstrating that psychohistory offers one of the most powerful of interpretive approaches to history. Decoding the Past is an impressive study that demonstrates the range of Loewenberg's own work in history and psychoanalysis and the full promise of an important and innovative methodology for others. His new essay takes up many of the criticisms and concerns raised about the method of psychohistory, and offers a cogent defense for its continued usage.

SURVIVING DIVORCE: A Divine Love Story " ‘A Divine Love Story’ is not a subtitle you expect to find for a book describing the aftermath of divorce.
Divorce seems like the very antithesis of a love story. But when I think about that incredibly difficult time; the one thing that stands out most as I look back, is the enduring love and tenderness of my Lord. Therefore, although this book alludes to the end of a love story between a man and a woman, it also marks a new beginning. The beginning of me recognizing that the God I served was not just up in the sky looking down, an absently benevolent God. He is ‘El Roi’ The God who sees me (Genesis 16:13). I came face to face with a God who is caring and present in all the vicissitudes of life – just as interested in the life-altering events as He is in the small details. A love story is about as true a description as I could give to my experience because it accurately describes the kind of attention and care and unconditional love that every girl dreams of finding in a lifelong partner; and it portrays the fledgling romance that began there on my knees as I poured out my broken heart...."
