Book Description :

NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER • The inspiring true story of transgender actor and activist Nicole Maines, whose identical twin brother, Jonas, and ordinary American family join her on an extraordinary journey to understand, nurture, and celebrate the uniqueness in us all. Nicole appears as TV’s first transgender superhero on CW’s Supergirl When Wayne and Kelly Maines adopted identical twin boys, they thought their lives were complete. But by the time Jonas and Wyatt were toddlers, confusion over Wyatt’s insistence that he was female began to tear the family apart. In the years that followed, the Maineses came to question their long-held views on gender and identity, to accept Wyatt’s transition to Nicole, and to undergo a wrenching transformation of their own, the effects of which would reverberate through their entire community. Pulitzer Prize–winning journalist Amy Ellis Nutt spent almost four years reporting this story and tells it with unflinching honesty, intimacy, and empathy. In her hands, Becoming Nicole is more than an account of a courageous girl and her extraordinary family. It’s a powerful portrait of a slowly but surely changing nation, and one that will inspire all of us to see the world with a little more humanity and understanding. Named One of the Ten Best Books of the Year by People • One of the Best Books of the Year by The New York Times Book Review and Men’s Journal • A Stonewall Honor Book in Nonfiction • Finalist for the Lambda Literary Award for Transgender Nonfiction “Fascinating and enlightening.”—Cheryl Strayed “If you aren’t moved by Becoming Nicole, I’d suggest there’s a lump of dark matter where your heart should be.”—The New York Times “Exceptional . . . ‘Stories move the walls that need to be moved,’ Nicole told her father last year. In telling Nicole’s story and those of her brother and parents luminously, and with great compassion and intelligence, that is exactly what Amy Ellis Nutt has done here.”—The Washington Post “A profoundly moving true story about one remarkable family’s evolution.”—People “Becoming Nicole is a miracle. It’s the story of a family struggling with—and embracing—a transgender child. But more than that, it’s about accepting one another, and ourselves, in all our messy, contradictory glory.”—Jennifer Finney Boylan, former co-chair of GLAAD and author of She’s Not There: A Life in Two Genders

Book Description :

The Becoming is a brutally honest account of a woman who uses her intelligence to reinvent a healthy self, once broken by cycles of alcoholism, bulimia, and anorexia. For all intents and purposes, this book is an identity project; one that illuminates the underlying mechanisms through which medicalization--that is, the social, cultural, economic, and political processes that contribute to deviant behaviour being defined and treated as illness--functions as a form of social control in a mental health context. Drawing from the author's lived experience and informed by classic and contemporary academic theories, The Becoming provides intimate insight into how traditional eating disorder, substance abuse, and psychiatric treatment pathologizes human suffering and disempowers vulnerable populations. In so doing, the author critiques the broader social forces--capitalism, colonialism, patriarchy--that reify the disease model of mental illness. Beyond this, The Becoming engages with burgeoning research from the disciplines of gender studies, public health, and neurobiology, all of which indicates that trauma--not disease--is largely responsible for mental health disturbances. The book then, synthesizes over a century's worth of theory and data to provide deeply personal--though highly relatable--commentary on the medicalization of anguish.

Book Description :

Film and the Shoah in France and Italy is a uniquely comparative analysis of the role of cinema in the development of collective memories of the Shoah in these countries. The work follows a chronological structure of which three French documentaries - Night and Fog, The Sorrow, and The Pity and Shoah - form the backbone. These three sections are linked by comparative case studies on famous and lesser-known fictional works, such as Roberto Benigni's Life is Beautiful, Louis Malle's Lacombe Lucien, Armand Gatti's The Enclosure, and Radu Mihaileanu's Train of Life. The book tackles crucial themes, such as the politics of history and its representation, the 1970s obsession with collaboration, and the ethical debate around cinema's ability adequately to represent the Shoah. The book fulfils three complementary purposes: to offer a detailed historical and textual analysis of key cinematic works on the Shoah; to firmly situate the popular and institutional reception of these works within the political and socio-cultural context of the time, so as to link cinema to society's attitudes towards the Shoah; and thirdly, to show how these attitudes have changed over time, in order to evince the role cinema has played in the transmission of history and memory. Film and the Shoah in France and Italy shows that cinema has both reflected and affected the dominant perceptions of history, contributing to the transition from recognition to representation of the Shoah. The book also shows how this transition has been slow and uneven, and questions whether recognition and commemoration necessarily imply a deeper historical understanding.

A look at Hollywood's brightest star, featuring 60 color photos. From her first faltering steps as an eight-year-old on a Sydney stage to the acclaim that greeted her Oscar-nominated performance in Moulin Rouge and her captivating turn on stage in The Blue Room, Nicole Kidman has excelled in every arena she has entered. But who is this flame-haired, sapphire-eyed beauty who has taken the entertainment world by storm? Kidman's rise through the ranks of Australian television and film eventually led to leading roles in Hollywood. While box office success initially stayed just out of range, her A-list status was assured when she and husband Tom Cruise were cast in Stanley Kubrick's controversial film Eyes Wide Shut. But why did everything seem to fall apart just as she was reaching her goals? And what has she had to sacrifice to achieve them? In Nicole Kidman, journalists Paul Simpson and Ruth Thomas look at her intriguing path to superstardom.

Book Description :

Since Deleuze and Guattari declared that all becoming must go by way of a "becoming-woman", their work has been subject to feminist interrogation. This book highlights the key points of this on-going enquiry, focusing particularly on the implications of Deleuze's work for a specifically feminist philosophy. It brings together the work of some of Deleuze's finest commentators and today's most important feminist thinkers, including new work by Elizabeth Grosz, Rosi Braidotti and Dorothea Olkowski. With chapters on film, the colonial imaginary, desire and embodiment, this book is the first sustained examination of the impact of Deleuze on feminist thought. Key Features: * provides an introduction to Deleuze for those working in feminist theory and philosophy * includes new work by major feminist theorists * provides a broad approach to several areas of Deleuze's work including film, politics, literature and feminism * relates Deleuze's work to its historical and philosophical context--Publisher's blurb.

Book Description :

The opening paper profitably links psychosomatic disorders to alexithymia, the absence or deadening of feeling, the inability to identify or express emotion. Alexithymic individuals are particularly prone to disease as a result of the faulty processing of emotions that leads to cognitive deficit in coping with stressful affects. Animated case reports on specific disorders—anorexia, arthritis, irritable bowel syndrome, even (speculatively) miscarriage—balance consideration of developmental questions and treatment issues (transference/countertransference) and techniques. From a historical essay on Freud's view of the mind-body connection to explorations of the complicated role of trauma and PTSD, the contributions to Dr. Finell's collection demonstrate intellectual energy and clinical creativity.

Coaching is an art, but it's far easier said than done. It takes courage to ask a question rather than offer up advice, provide an answer or unleash a solution. Giving another person the opportunity to find their own way, make their own mistakes, and create their own wisdom is both brave and vulnerable. Emotional intelligence can help leaders and coaches recognize how attitudes - both their own and those of the people they coach -prevent individuals from reaching their potential. In this practical and inspiring book, EQ qualified trainer and coach Nicole Soames teaches you how to develop a coaching mind-set, recognize who and when you should coach, adopt a disciplines approach to coaching, learn how to manage the coaching conversation and give and receive feedback so that you can embed new ways of working. This is a fresh and innovative take on the traditional, how-to coaching manual.
