Italian filmmaker Dario Argento's horror films have been described as a blend of Alfred Hitchcock and George Romero?psychologically rich, colorful, and at times garish, excelling at taking the best elements of the splatter and exploitation genres and laying them over a dark undercurrent of human emotions and psyches. Broken Mirrors/Broken Minds, which dissects such Argento cult films as Two Evil Eyes, The Bird with the Crystal Plumage, Suspiria, and Deep Red, includes a new introduction discussing Argento's most recent films, from The Stendahl Syndrome to Mother of Tears; an updated filmography; and an interview with Argento.

C. C. Goen

In the first comprehensive treatment of the role of churches in the processes that led to the American Civil War, C.C. Goen suggests that when Presbyterian, Methodist, and Baptist churches divided along lines of North and South in the antebellum controversy over slavery, they severed an important bond of national union. The forebodings of church leaders and other contemporary observers about the probability of disastrous political consequences were well-founded. The denominational schisms, as irreversible steps along the nation's tortuous course to violence, were both portent and catalyst to the imminent national tragedy. Caught in a quagmire of conflicting purposes, church leadership failed and Christian community broke down, presaging in a scenario of secession and conflict the impending crisis of the Union. As the churches chose sides over the supremely transcendent moral issue of slavery, so did the nation. Professor Goen, an eminent historian of American religion, does not seek in these pages the "causes" of the Civil War. Rather, he establishes evangelical Christianity as "a major bond of national unity" in antebellum America. His careful analysis and critical interpretation demonstrate that antebellum American churches -- committed to institutional growth, swayed by sectional interests, and silent about racial prejudice -- could neither contain nor redirect the awesome forces of national dissension. Their failure sealed the nation's fate. - Publisher.

From Fighting Front to Home Front. A troubled Adam Springer, Heinrich Mueller's grandson, returns from the Civil War to the family farm in Ohio. Bedeviled by the memory of battlefields red with the mingled blood of north and south, nightmares and melancholy plague him. One image Adam holds dear-the lovely young woman he watched descend the stairs of a grand Atlanta home before it gave into flames spread by the Yankee hoard. Rejecting the come hither glances of local farm girls, Adam seeks a woman of similar beauty and grace and finds her in eighteen-year old Martha. She leaves her elegant Marietta home to join Adam in the shabby house on the lonely farm where his mother, Lizzie, reigns as queen. The marriage is stormy, children arrive, children die, and Martha-her girlish essence transformed to steel-takes their sons and leaves to run a hotel. Was it possible for Adam to change? Could he win her back? Did he even want to? The fledgling Ohio pottery industry provides a subplot to this story of two lovers as they work through domestic mistreatment and family tragedy.

Injury recidivism is a continuing health problem in the modern clinical setting, and has been part of the medical literature for some time. However, it has been largely absent from the forensic and bioarchaeological literature, despite the fact that we work closely with skeletal remains, and in many cases, skeletal trauma. This volume seeks to close this gap by exploring role that injury recidivism and accumulative trauma plays in bioarchaeological and forensic contexts by providing case examples from prehistoric, historic, and modern settings. These case studies highlight both the avenues through which injury recidivism can be studied and analyzed in skeletal remains, as well as the limitations in studying injury recidivism in deceased populations.

Diplomarbeit aus dem Jahr 2012 im Fachbereich Pädagogik - Medienpädagogik, Note: 1, Alpen-Adria-Universität Klagenfurt (Medien- und Kommunikationswissenschaft), Sprache: Deutsch, Abstract: Der Regisseur Jim Jarmusch merkt im Audiokommentar der DVD BROKEN FLOWERS über seine Arbeit an, dass er sich dagegen sträubt, seine Filme zu analysieren oder miteinander zu vergleichen. Er muss auch nicht einmal erklären, worum es geht. Das ist nicht sein Job, sondern es ist seine Aufgabe, Filme zu schaffen. Wichtig für ihn ist es, wie das Publikum die Filme interpretiert. (vgl. Jim Jarmusch in BROKEN FLOWERS, USA, 2005) Wenn ein Regisseur den Spielraum für Interpretationen derart offen lässt, habe ich mir die Freiheit heraus genommen und mir im Verlauf der Rezeption Fragen nach der Konstruktion der Identitäten gestellt. Welche Diskurse wirken auf die ProtagonistInnen ein und wie handeln sie diese aus? Welche Identitäten lassen sich wie analysieren? Darüber hinaus möchte ich noch eine tiefergreifende Analyse wagen. Welche Rückschlüsse und Ideologiekritiken lassen sich aus den vorgestellten Identitäten im Hinblick auf gesellschaftliche Zusammenhänge ziehen? Existieren Identitäten mit widerständigen Potentialen? „Der Zusammenhang von Film und seinen möglichen Funktionen in Bezug auf Identitätsfragen“ (Nestler in Mai/Winter 2006: 290) soll im Folgenden am Medienbeispiel BROKEN FLOWERS erörtert werden. Die weitläufig formulierten Fragen stellen die Grundmotivation meiner Arbeit dar. Das Thema Identität scheint ein unerschöpfliches Potential zu besitzen, so dass es einer differenzierten Forschungsfrage bedarf, um sich auf einzelne Aspekte in diesem großen Feld konzentrieren zu können. Durch den Arbeitstitel „BROKEN FLOWERS - Broken Identity? Fragmentierte Identitäten zwischen Neoliberalismus und spielerischer Postmoderne. Eine filmsoziologische Analyse“ versuche ich bereits, eine Eingrenzung in der umfangreichen Disziplin der Identitätsforschung vorzunehmen. Von besonderem Interesse sind für mich filmisch visualisierte Charaktere, die von einer stetigen Fragmentierung in ihrem Selbst betroffen sind und die sich in einer sozial konstruierten Diskurswelt innerhalb einer spielerischen Postmoderne bewegen, in der unter Anderen neoliberale Ideologien auf die filmischen Lebenswelten einwirken. Meine Forschungsfrage lautet: Wie lassen sich fragmentierte Identitäten im Film dartellen? Anhand praktischer Beispiele aus dem Film möchte ich ein tieferes Verständnis für dieses Themengebiet herausarbeiten. Von Belang sind dabei nicht nur Dialoge, sondern auch die visuelle Inszenierung des filmischen Raumes.[...]

Pamela Roche,Maggie Allen

This is about parental abduction and parental alienation (PAS). It was written to expose the flaws and loopholes in the Hague Convention and the dramatic rise in parental abduction in the last 10 years. This book exposes the phenomenon of PAS which is too poorly recognized in the family courts today. It is devastating the lives of young children and target parents. These affects often are long-term on the children which extends into adulthood. It is about the injustices that are endemic in the family law system which involve judges, lawyers, psychologists and court appointed therapists. It shows how the legal system is fundamentally flawed and the costs of all this are crippling. There is no Legal Aid for this and often victims dragged into such barbaric custody cases simply can't afford it and may never see their children again or at least for many years. I was only allowed to see my children for a few hours over the years under the most harrowing of circumstances with the supervision of a therapist in an office. The book mentions reference books of the late Dr Richard Gardner, Dr Doug Darnall, Dr Richard Warshak, Dr Terrence Campbell, Pamela Richardson, Lady Catherine Meyer, Alec Baldwin, Dr Amy Baker, Robert D Hare Phd and Stanley ClawarPhD/Brynne Rivlin.MSS The book has reviews on Amazon.com USA and Amazon.co.uk and the Forward is written by Dr Ludwig Lowenstein the most esteemed expert on PAS in the UK who highly recommends the book and thinks it should be put before the judiciary to enlighten them. To quote. The two reviews on Amazon.com: 5 STARS... 'I LOVE THIS BOOK IT IS SUCH A SAD STORY BUT I DO GIVE IT 5 STARS' by Dr Amy Baker It is hard to say I love this book but I do give it 5 stars. As anyone who has read my books knows, I am very interested in true stories about alienation, having written books on true stories of adults who were alienated as children (Adult Children of Parental Alienation Syndrome) and a book based on true stories of parents currently alienated from their children (Surviving Parental Alienation). I have heard many tragic stories and will add this one to the list of other well-written memiors written from the perspective of a targeted parent. This story shows as many other stories of alienation do, how unenlighted and incompetent legal and mental health professionals can do real damage to the lives of famlies and children affected by alienation. It is maddening and heartbreaking to see how the alienating parent are supported by the system designed to protect children. There is obviously much work to do to protect this very serious form of child abuse. 5 STARS: STUDENTS OF PSYCHOLOGY & LAW, READ THIS BOOK!! by Dr William Bernet Pamela Roche sent her two young sons to spend a Christmas vacation with their father and they did not return. It is easy to see the subsequent events were maddening, and endlessly depressing for Ms Roche. One of the messages of this book is we need to educate mental health and legal professionals in the US and other countries about PAS. This book would be an excellent assignment for student psychologists, psychiatrists and lawyers . It explains step-by-step how the children's experience of PAS was created, perpertuated and then mishandled by therapists, psychologists, attorneys and judges. There are so far 12 other reviews on Amazon.co.uk one of which is written by Lady Catherine Meyer whose children were abducted by her ex to Germany. All these stories are truely harrowing and unbelievable that this can happen in this day and age. I wrote this book for one reason which is to raise public awareness about this insidious form of child abuse. I am not an aspiring author, I was just driven and compelled to get this story out there and I hope it will help others who may be going through a similar plight. This dirty little secret called PAS needs to be exposed and given more recognition. The story is set in the UK, New Mexico and Texas. Pamela Ro
