Clint Eastwood is one of the world’s most popular action stars,who has matured into a fine American producer-director. Entertaining, illuminating and packed with information, up to and including The Changeling, this is the first book to cover his full life in the movies, from his beginnings in 1950s B-movies and in TV’s Rawhide to Gran Torino showing how as both actor and filmmaker Eastwood aims for the heart of the drama, whatever the story. Howard Hughes follows Eastwood’s craft through over 50 movies. He looks at his launch into superstardom in Sergio Leone’s 1960s spaghetti westerns. Back in America, he built on his success as western hero with such films as High Plains Drifter and The Outlaw Josey Wales, winning an Oscar for Unforgiven in 1992. He blasted his way through the seventies and eighties as Inspector Harry Francis Callahan, the last hope for law enforcement in San Francisco. He also monkeyed around in two phenomenally popular films with Clyde the orang-utan, which brought tough-guy Eastwood to a whole new audience and made him the biggest box office star of his generation. Aim for the Heart also looks at Eastwood’s more unusual roles, including The Beguiled, The Bridges of Madison County and Million Dollar Baby. Since 1970, he has enjoyed parallel success as directorproducer of his own Malpaso Productions, with Bird, Mystic River and Letters from Iwo Jima, demonstrating formidable directing credentials. Aim for the Heart covers all Eastwood's movies of many genres in detail, and Eastwood’s story is illustrated with film stills, glimpses behind the scenes, and rare poster advertising material. Aim for the Heart also includes the most comprehensive credits filmography has ever compiled on Eastwood’s work, as star and director.

This is an introductory guide to Process Theology for undergraduates. As part of Contiuum's 'Guide for the Perplexed' series, this text provides an accessible introduction to process theology, aimed at nurturing the theological imagination of undergraduates, pastors and interested laypersons. It describes the major themes of process theology and relates them to the everyday lives and spiritual commitments of people today. In addition to addressing traditional theological issues, Epperly addresses cutting edge issues in theology and ethics such as pluralism and postmodernism, matters of life and death, science (technology and genetics), and emerging forms of Christianity. This text is designed for seminary and university classes as well as congregational study. It will help readers to overcome the obstacles created by the technical language often employed by process theologians. Continuum's Guides for the Perplexed are clear, concise and accessible introductions to thinkers, writers and subjects that students and readers can find especially challenging - or indeed downright bewildering.

Ethics, published (anonymously) by Coornhert in 1586, is a remarkable publication for a number of reasons: it is the first work on ethics written in a European vernacular; it is a mature work, appearing four years before Coornhert’s death, and summarizes a lifetime of writing and thinking about the good life; it is considered to be fundamentally pagan because of the absence in Zedekunst of biblical references or any direct mention of Christ. Asked why he did not write about such things as the future establishment of God’s kingdom on earth, Coornhert answered: ‘Because I have a greater desire to learn how to live well, than to learn how to know much.’ This is the first English translation of this important work. It will enhance our insight into the ethical outlook of this prominent freethinker and controversialist of the early Dutch Republic. Also available in E-book: ISBN 9789087045586.
