Love and hate seem to be the dominant emotions that make the world go round and are a central theme in psychotherapy. Love and Hate seeks to answer some important questions about these all consuming passions. Many patients seeking psychotherapy feel unlovable or full of rage and hate. What is it that interferes with the capacity to experience love? This book explores the origins of love and hate from infancy and how they develop through the life cycle. It brings together contemporary views about clinical practice on how psychotherapists and analysts work with and think about love and hate in the transference and countertransference and explores how different schools of thought deal with the subject. David Mann, together with an impressive array of international contributors represent a broad spectrum of psychoanalytic perspectives, including Kleinian, Jungian, Independent Group, and Lacanian, psychotherapists, psychoanalysts and analytical psychologists. With emphasis on clinical illustration throughout, the writers show how different psychoanalytic schools think about and clinically work with the experience and passions of love and hate. It will be invaluable to practitioners and students of psychotherapy, psychoanalysis, analytical psychology and counselling.
The author of the Lambda Literary Award winner Kamikaze Lust delivers “a thrilling tale of espionage, family ties, sex, love, and betrayal” (The Advocate). Jennifer Baron is a failed Olympic speed skater now running her family’s foundation and trying to stay sober, when her billionaire father disappears. She travels to Israel in search of him, becoming recklessly entangled in his illegal dealings and with his enigmatic lover, Gila, a former Mossad agent gone bad. Along the way, she is drawn into the shadow worlds of the Promised Land, where career-jockeying government agents, fake Orthodox Jews, queer Palestinians on the run, and other displaced wanderers scramble to find home amid the endless cycles of war, occupation, and heartbreak. The Book of Love and Hate is an unraveling of white-collar crime and its motivations. It’s a testament to the magnificent oblivion of love and a shattering of inherited trauma, both personal and historical. “A thriller of literary pedigree, unbound by convention . . . If you’re seeking a cathartic resolution in the final pages, you might be disappointed—but you shouldn’t be surprised. Not when you’re talking about Israel and corrupt fortunes, and madness, obsession, and abuse . . . Just don’t expect to find a safe, comforting space in the pages of Lauren Sanders’s discomforting and terrific book.” —The Village Voice “Sanders knows how to craft a story. The storyline is riveting, and the personal development of the characters kept me engaged on a deeper level than even her thrilling plot could. Her prose is beautiful and brings you to an ending that is sure to have you reeling.” —Windy City Times
John Smith, Pocahontas, and the Start of a New Nation
Author: David A. Price
A New York Times Notable Book and aSan Jose Mercury News Top 20 Nonfiction Book of 2003In 1606, approximately 105 British colonists sailed to America, seeking gold and a trade route to the Pacific. Instead, they found disease, hunger, and hostile natives. Ill prepared for such hardship, the men responded with incompetence and infighting; only the leadership of Captain John Smith averted doom for the first permanent English settlement in the New World.The Jamestown colony is one of the great survival stories of American history, and this book brings it fully to life for the first time. Drawing on extensive original documents, David A. Price paints intimate portraits of the major figures from the formidable monarch Chief Powhatan, to the resourceful but unpopular leader John Smith, to the spirited Pocahontas, who twice saved Smith’s life. He also gives a rare balanced view of relations between the settlers and the natives and debunks popular myths about the colony. This is a superb work of history, reminding us of the horrors and heroism that marked the dawning of our nation.

Noelle I was having a very bad day. The worst day of my life. With only eight weeks left until my thirtieth birthday (oh, and Christmas) I was determined to cram every last ounce of fun into my life before I officially became an 'adult'. But my pursuit of the perfect lead-up to my thirtieth birthday was ruined when I turned up at work to find out I no longer had a job. Then I got home to find my boyfriend in bed with someone else. I didn’t hang around for his explanation, instead packing my stuff and walking out, leaving him and the apartment we’d shared behind. Now I was jobless, homeless, and broke. Things couldn't get much worse. Logan I was having a very bad day. With less than an hour before I was due to address the board of investors about the next round of funding for my medical research, I couldn't find a damn thing. My PA had abandoned me for marriage, leaving me high and dry (well, not really, she did arrange for a replacement, but apparently I was impossible to work for) so now I was stuck with an office that looked like a tornado had torn through it and no report to give the investors and the very possibility of being refused the money I needed to make the medical breakthrough I knew was within my grasp. I was a genius—my mother had me tested—but I really sucked when it came to filing. One drunken online ad later and Noelle walked into my life, turning it upside down and leaving me wondering how I ever survived without her. But being a PA is just a temporary solution for Noelle, and she has no intention on staying permanently. No matter how good we are together. *This is a sexy office romance set at Christmas time in Australia where things get hot and steamy (and I don't just mean the weather). **This book was previously published as 'Girl Friday'
“If you love a good enemies-to-lovers trope, run—don’t walk—to the nearest bookstore or library near you.”—Buzzfeed “A Love Hate Thing is an irresistible romance that you’ll gobble up whole.”—Popsugar When they’re stuck under one roof, the house may not be big enough for their hate…or their love. Despite having been shot, Tyson Trice has survived the mean streets of Lindenwood, so nothing can faze him—not even being tossed into the affluent coastal community of Pacific Hills. Nandy Smith, the golden girl of Pacific Hills, is not pleased when she hears her parents are taking in a troubled teen boy. Nandy suddenly fears her summer plans, as well as her reputation, will go up in flames. The wall between Trice and Nandy’s bedrooms feels as thin as the line between love and hate. Through time, Trice brings Nandy out of her shell, and Nandy attempts to melt the ice that’s taken over Trice’s heart. Only, with the ever-present pull back to the Lindenwood streets, it’ll be a wonder if Trice makes it through this summer at all. “Emotional, gripping love story! I couldn’t put it down!”—New York Times bestselling author Simone Elkeles
Why are some popular musical forms and performers universally reviled by critics and ignored by scholars-despite enjoying large-scale popularity? How has the notion of what makes "good" or "bad" music changed over the years-and what does this tell us about the writers who have assigned these tags to different musical genres? Many composers that are today part of the classical "canon" were greeted initially by bad reviews. Similarly, jazz, country, and pop musics were all once rejected as "bad" by the academy that now has courses on these and many other types of music. This book addresses why this is so through a series of essays on different musical forms and performers. It looks at alternate ways of judging musical performance beyond the critical/academic nexus, and suggests new paths to follow in understanding what makes some music "popular" even if it is judged to be "bad." For anyone who has ever secretly enjoyed ABBA, Kenny G, or disco, Bad Music will be a guilty pleasure!
A Book about Love, Hate, a City and Lots of T-Shirt
Author: Love Jozi
"I love you I hate you is a book about Johannesburg told in two parts. The first is told through design. It is the story of Love Jozi so far, a catalogue of more than 100 t-shirt graphics. We revisited our image archive from the past 15 years to narrate a tale of the city. T-shirts have always been the core product of the brand, and each range has emerged from a specific context. The book is illustrated by rich visuals which show how Johannesburg became our muse, inspiring bold designs and new ways of looking. The second econd part is told through a collection of short essays by contributing writers. We invited 34 Joburg thinkers, doers and observers to start a conversation with each t-shirt range. This collection spells out a complicated relationship with the city. The result explores Johannesburg in fresh ways and takes the reader down unexpected paths, grappling with a complex place that inspires competing emotions of love and hate."--Provided by publisher.

There’s a fine line between love and hate. And these two can’t decide which side they’re really on. . . . Poetry professor Naomi Price is loved by her students, happily works around the clock, and has credentials no one could deny. Except, it seems, for her arch-nemesis at Hainamor University. The man never has anything polite to say, and now the two of them are competing for a prestigious honor that just so happens to come with a cash award. With every move Naomi makes to impress her colleagues, her rival is right there beside her, elbow to elbow, making it impossible to ignore how devastatingly hot he is—even if he is a total bastard. Sebastian Blake knows what Naomi thinks of him, and he’s trying hard not to care. Maybe he’s been grouchy with her in the past, but she isn’t making his life any easier with her crusade to win over the Personnel Committee and earn an honor that is rightfully his. Naomi just doesn’t quit, and though he’d never admit it, there’s something sexy about her. Something that has him tied up in knots. Something that makes him want to move beyond his painful past and take a chance—at least for as long as it takes to kiss her silly and see what happens next. Warning: Intense bickering leads to intense sexual chemistry! This ebook includes an excerpt from another Loveswept title.

There is a huge volume of work on war and its causes, most of which treats its political and economic roots. In Peace Education: How We Come to Love and Hate War, Nel Noddings explores the psychological factors that support war: nationalism, hatred, delight in spectacles, masculinity, religious extremism and the search for existential meaning. She argues that while schools can do little to reduce the economic and political causes, they can do much to moderate the psychological factors that promote violence by helping students understand the forces that manipulate them.
