Author: Michael Charles Tobias
This book is a provocative and invigorating real-time exploration of the future of human evolution by two of the world’s leading interdisciplinary ecologists – Michael Charles Tobias and Jane Gray Morrison. Steeped in a rich multitude of the sciences and humanities, the book enshrines an elegant narrative that is highly empathetic, personal, scientifically wide-ranging and original. It focuses on the geo-positioning of the human Self and its corresponding species. The book's overarching viewpoints and poignant through-story examine and powerfully challenge concepts associated historically with assertions of human superiority over all other life forms. Ultimately, The Hypothetical Species: Variables of Human Evolution is a deeply considered treatise on the ecological and psychological state of humanity and her options – both within, and outside the rubrics of evolutionary research – for survival. This important work is beautifully presented with nearly 200 diverse illustrations, and is introduced with a foreword by famed paleobiologist, Dr. Melanie DeVore.

Author: Geoff Rolls
This new edition of Classic Case Studies is the essential selection of case studies and stories that illustrate not only many of the most fundamental tenets of psychology, but also some of the most extreme forms of human behavior. The human mind is both extraordinary and compelling. From the leader who convinced his followers to kill themselves to the man who lost his memory, these famous accounts have provided invaluable insights for scholars and researchers and amazed the public at large. Brough to life by Rolls, each case is contextualized with more typical behaviour, while the latest thinking in each subfield is also discussed. Revised and updated, the new edition features two new case studies, including the 'Jim Twins' by Thomas Bouchard, an amazing case of twins separated at birth and adopted by different parents, yet when reunited 30 years later shared so many behavioural characteristics. Also featuring a new chapter on approaches, issues and debates, accessibly written and requiring no prior knowledge of psychology, this book is essential reading for A-Level students and undergraduates alike. Geoff Rolls has taught psychology for over 26 years and is currently Head of Psychology at Peter Symonds College, Winchester. He is the author of the popular Women Can’t Park, Men Can’t Pack (Chambers, 2009), which investigates gender stereotypes (including driving), and also Taking the Proverbial (Chambers, 2007), which explores the psychological truth behind well-known proverbs and sayings. .

Between 1880 and 1914, England saw the emergence of an unprecedented range of new literary forms, which meant new relationships between books, authors, readers and classifications of taste. Hammond uses previously unexamined archive material and focuses in detail on the working practices of selected publishers and distributors to make an original and important contribution to our understanding of the cultural dynamics and rhetorics of the fin-de-siècle literary field in England.

Publisher: Collector's Library
Of the various types of mythological literature, fairy tales are the simplest and purest expressions of the collective unconscious and thus offer the clearest understanding of the basic patterns of the human psyche. Every people or nation has its own way of experiencing this psychic reality, and so a study of the world's fairy tales yields a wealth of insights into the archetypal experiences of humankind. Folk tales and fairy stories were originally intended for both adults and children - Grimms' Household Tales, for instance - and this international anthology brings together The Frog Who Became an Emperor from China, The Thee Billy Goats Gruff from Norway, Pinocchio from Italy as well as the classic stories of Aesop, Andersen, the Grimm Brothers, Charles Perrault and Oscar Wilde, among many others.
