A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. *Why do seemingly rational, intelligent people commit acts of cruelty and v iolence? *What are the root causes of destructive behavior? *How can we control the emotions that drive these impulses? *Can we learn to live at peace with ourselves and others? Imagine sitting with the Dalai Lama in his private meeting room with a smal l group of world-class scientists and philosophers. The talk is lively and fascinating as these leading minds grapple with age-old questions of compel ling contemporary urgency. Daniel Goleman, the internationally bestselling author of Emotional Intelligence, provides the illuminating commentary-and reports on the breakthrough research this historic gathering inspired. Destructive Emotions Buddhist philosophy tells us that all personal unhappiness and interpersona l conflict lie in the "three poisons": craving, anger, and delusion. It als o provides antidotes of astonishing psychological sophistication--which are now being confirmed by modern neuroscience. With new high-tech devices, sc ientists can peer inside the brain centers that calm the inner storms of ra ge and fear. They also can demonstrate that awareness-training strategies s uch as meditation strengthen emotional stability-and greatly enhance our po sitive moods. The distinguished panel members report these recent findings and debate an exhilarating range of other topics: What role do destructive emotions play in human evolution? Are they "hardwired" in our bodies? Are they universal, or does cultu

'At 28 years old, I found myself living at home, with my 73-year-old father . As a child, my father never minced words, and when I screwed up, he had a way of cutting right through the bullshit and pointing out exactly why I w as being an idiot.

GROWTH FETISH, Hamilton, Clive
69 Hamilton, Clive GROWTH FETISH
Pluto Press 2004 0745322506 / 9780745322506 Paperback Fine 
'Right on target and badly needed.' Noam Chomsky 'Breaks new ground by aski ng us to think what a post-growth, environmentally stable society might act ually be like. . . . Clearly, stylishly written.' Hugh Stretton 'An incisiv e critique of how the global economic and political systems have turned us into the miserable rich. Whatever you choose to do and wherever you go, you will benefit from keeping as copy of Growth Fetish tucked up your sleeve.' Sydney Morning Herald 'This is a powerful statement about the failure of t he rat-race society and the need for a new philosophy of sociable living.' Professor Richard Layard, London School of Economics For decades our politi cal leaders and opinion makers have touted higher incomes as the way to a b etter future. Economic growth means better lives for us all. But after many years of sustained economic growth and increased personal incomes we must confront an awful fact: we aren't any happier. This is the great contradict ion of modern politics. In this provocative new book, Clive Hamilton argues that, far from being the answer to our problems, growth fetishism and the marketing society lie at the heart of our social ills. They have corrupted our social priorities and political structures, and have created a profound sense of alienation among young and old. Growth Fetish is the first seriou s attempt at a politics of change for rich countries dominated by sicknesse s of affluence, where the real yearning is not for more money but for authe ntic identity, and where the future lies in creating a society that promote s the things that really do improve our well-being.

THE LOST PAINTING, Harr, Jonathan
70 Harr, Jonathan THE LOST PAINTING
Random House Trade Paperback 2006 0375759867 / 9780375759864 Paperback Very Good 
A copy that has been read, but is in excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlighting. The spine remains undamaged. An Italian village on a hilltop near the Adriatic coast, a decaying palazzo facing the sea, and in the basement, cobwebbed and dusty, lit by a single bulb, an archive unknown to scholars. Here, a young graduate student from R ome, Francesca Cappelletti, makes a discovery that inspires a search for a work of art of incalculable value, a painting lost for almost two centuries . The artist was Caravaggio, a master of the Italian Baroque. He was a genius , a revolutionary painter, and a man beset by personal demons. Four hundred years ago, he drank and brawled in the taverns and streets of Rome, moving from one rooming house to another, constantly in and out of jail, all the while painting works of transcendent emotional and visual power. He rose fr om obscurity to fame and wealth, but success didn't alter his violent tempe rament. His rage finally led him to commit murder, forcing him to flee Rome a hunted man. He died young, alone, and under strange circumstances. Caravaggio scholars estimate that between sixty and eighty of his works are in existence today. Many others-no one knows the precise number-have been lost to time. Somewhere, surely, a masterpiece lies forgotten in a storeroo m, or in a small parish church, or hanging above a fireplace, mistaken for a mere copy. Prizewinning author Jonathan Harr embarks on an spellbinding journey to discover the long-lost painting known as The Taking of Christ-its mysterious fate and the circumstances of its disappearance have captivated Car

75 Hillman, James THE SOUL'S CODE: IN SEARCH OF CHARACTER AND CALLING
Grand Central Publishing 1997 0446673714 / 9780446673716 Paperback Fine 
James Hillman, a former director of the Jung Institute who has written more than 20 books on behavior and psychology, delves into human development in The Soul's Code. Hillman encourages you to "grow down" into the earth, as an acorn does when it becomes a mighty oak tree. He argues that character a nd calling are the result of "the particularity you feel to be you" and kno cks those who blame childhood difficulties for all their problems as adults . According to Hillman, "The current American identity as a victim is the f lip side of the coin whose head brightly displays the opposite identity: th e heroic self-made man, carving out destiny alone and with unflagging will. " Hillman's theories seem disarmingly simple, but he backs them with a care ful, well-practiced intellect.

76 Honeycombe, Gordon MORE MURDERS OF THE BLACK MUSEUM, 1835-1985
Hutchinson 1993 0091778573 / 9780091778576 1st Edition Hardcover Near Fine/Near Fine 
A wonderful tight clean copy, protected in a new brodart wrapper, no inscri ptions, unclipped dustjacket, this is not an Ex-Lib or a BCE/BOMC edition. New Scotland Yard, the headquarters of London's Metropolitan Police, also houses the Black Museum, a unique collection of exhibits, photographs and other items connected with some of the most famous crimes and criminals of the last century. 24 of those crimes, committed between 1835 and 1985, deal with murder, and these are the murders that are described in this book. Their case histories, fully detailed herein, present a terrible but compelling picture not only of the crimes themselves and of the criminals and their punishments, but also of changing social conditions and police advances in the detection of crime. Although the Black Museum is closed to the public, Gordon Honeycombe was given privileged access to its records and its secrets. This book, which includes murders, manslaughters and murderers not described in his previous book, "The Murders of the Black Museum", contains detailed and factual accounts of the crimes and characters of such notorious murderers as William Palmer, Charles Pearce, John Lee, George Chapman, Ruth Ellis, Donald Neilson (the Black Panther) and Dennis Nilsen.

THE GIFT, HYDE, LEWIS
80 HYDE, LEWIS THE GIFT
Canongate Canons 2012 0857868470 / 9780857868473 Paperback Near Fine 
In excellent condition. Pages are intact and not marred by notes or highlig hting. The spine remains undamaged. First published in America in 1979, "The Gift" is a modern classic which remarkably has never before been published in Britain. This inspiring examination of the 'gift economy' is even more relevant now than when it originally appeared, a brilliantly argued defence of the place of creativity in our increasingly market-orientated society. ""The Gift" actually deserves the hyperbolic praise that in most blurbs is so empty. It is the sort of book that you remember where you were and even what you were wearing when you first picked it up. The sort that you hector friends about until they read it too. This is not just formulaic blurbspeak; it is the truth. No one who is invested in any kind of art, in questions of what real art does and doesn't have to do with money, spirituality, ego, love, ugliness, sales, politics, morality, marketing, and whatever you call 'value', can read "The Gift" and remain unchanged." - David Foster Wallace.
