This book is not to be mistaken for an apology. Not at all. If I have lived fully and richly I thank God for it. My only regrets are for the things that I have not done and for the experiences I have not had. Also for the people I have not known. I believe absolutely that living, in the completest sense of that word . . . discovering the full beauty of living and plunging one’s self utterly into the human beings that swarm through this life . . . is a pure art. It is, I honestly think, the highest artistic accomplishment we can hope for. All the recognised arts. . . your paintings, your sculpture, your music, your books . . . all those things are only the symbols of that higher art: living. I have been accused of living adventurously. Let us admit the word. But I have never been an “adventuress.” If I have never cared about your man-made conventions (and every modern school-girl would laugh at those of my day), I was not immoral, but un-moral. If I have often loved, I have at least loved well and fully. I have nothing to be ashamed of, in spite of the scandalous press reports that hopeful reporters managed to use to amuse a scandal-loving public. And if I have dared to stick my nose into trouble just because the game was fun, does it make me a brazen hussy? No, this is not an apology. It is the recollections of a woman who is no longer young and who has crowded a great deal of movement and fun and action and love and adventure into a lifetime now drawing towards its close. And if I could live it again, this very long life of mine, I would love to do so. And the only difference would be that I would try to crowd in still more ... more places, more things, more women, more men, more love, more excitement. Let the Mrs. Grundys arch their eyebrows and reach for their smelling salts.

Category: Biography & Autobiography
Before packing away his robes, Simon Glustrom was a practicing rabbi for forty-three years. One of the compelling reasons for deciding to write a memoir was in response to the endless variety of questions about the interior life of a rabbi: Who influenced him to enter the rabbinate? Can a rabbi have religious doubts and still be true to his calling? Would he repeat such a rigorous life if he knew from the beginning the demands that would be made upon him? This book provides the reader with some uncommon answers. The author does not hesitate to reveal some of his lingering doubts, regrets and fears even as he refers with pride to his skills and strengths. Rabbi Glustrom reaches back to his early youth in Atlanta. He recalls some of the unheralded personalities who influenced him during his most impressionable years and impacted on his life in college, in rabbinical school and in the broader community. The author feels the need to sing on behalf of his unsung heroes. Much of this memoir deals with the human and spiritual problems the author encountered in a new suburban congregation in Fair Lawn, New Jersey where he served as the first rabbi. Nostalgically he recalls those pioneering years in the Fifties and documents some of the monumental changes that took place over four decades, including some of the unresolved crises, such as the problem of egalitarianism in synagogue life. Clergy and lay people will identify with much of the rich anecdotal material, from the humorous to the pathetic, that is so candidly expressed in this memoir.

Our nation was founded upon Christian principles and for generations followed the mandates of that established course. Little by little those truths have been forsaken. A "Spirit-empowered, Holy Ghost-anointed, sin-killing, Devil-chasing revival," as Dr. Shelton Smith puts it so accurately, is what the country now needs. These challenging messages remind us vividly that though the world gets darker and darker, the power of God and its availability to us have always been the same. Here, from the heart of a burdened pastor, editor and soul winner, Christians are encouraged to get right with God, catch the Spirit of Christ, serve God diligently, stay on the firing line and wage war against evil. We are salt and light in this wicked world; if we faint not but stay at the urgent task with commitment, determination and long-suffering, God can and will indeed do it again! - Publisher.

Author: Prof Herschel Prins
Focus in the media on the risks posed to ordinary people has become increasingly strong in recent years - particularly on those risks popularly perceived to be posed by the mentally ill. But how justified is this concern? How do we best manage so-called dangerous people? In Will They Do It Again? Herschel Prins considers the issue of public protection within a broad context of risk in society generally, examining the concerns arising in contemporary society from dealing with uncertainty. It is argued that public fear over the danger posed by the mentally ill is at odds with the evidence, and that much of the concern is focused on a small number of high-profile cases. Prins goes on to examine such cases where management of the mentally ill has failed and sets out suggestions for improvements in practice. Will They Do It Again? cuts through popular misunderstanding and media hype over risk to give a clear, unbiased picture of the real risks to society from the mentally ill and how best they can be contained and managed, and will prove invaluable to a range of practitioners involved in the fields of criminal justice and psychiatry.

From the co-authors of the classic Last Night a DJ Saved My Life: A fascinating oral history of record spinning told by the groundbreaking DJs themselves. Acclaimed authors and music historians Bill Brewster and Frank Broughton have spent years traveling across the world to interview the revolutionary and outrageous DJs who shaped the last half-century of pop music. The Record Players is the fun and revealing result—a collection of firsthand accounts from the obsessives, the playboys, and the eccentrics that dominated the music scene and contributed to the evolution of DJ culture. In the sixties, radio tastemakers brought their sound to the masses, while early trendsetters birthed the role of the club DJ at temples of hip like the Peppermint Lounge. By the seventies, DJs were changing the course of popular music; and in the eighties, young innovators wore out their cross-faders developing techniques that turned their craft into its own form of music. With discographies, favorite songs, and amazing photos of all the DJs as young firebrands, The Record Players offers an unparalleled music education: from records to synthesizers, from disco to techno, and from influential cliques to arenas packed with thousands of dancing fans.

From the moment it was recorded more than 40 years ago, Miles Davis's Kind of Blue was hailed as a jazz classic. To this day it remains the bestselling jazz album of all time, embraced by fans of all musical genres. The album represented a true watershed moment in jazz history, and helped to usher in the first great jazz revolution since bebop. The Making of Kind of Blue is an exhaustively researched examination of how this masterpiece was born. Recorded with pianist Bill Evans, tenor saxophonist John Coltrane, composer/theorist George Russell and Miles himself, the album represented a fortuitous conflation of some of the real giants of the jazz world, at a time when they were at the top of their musical game. The end result was a recording that would forever change the face of American music. Through extensive interviews and access to rare recordings Nisenson pieced together the whole story of this miraculous session, laying bare the genius of Miles Davis, other musicians, and the heart of jazz itself.

This is not a textbook nor an encyclopedia; rather, it is a collection of papers representing a variety of points of view on contemporary is sues, controversies, and questions about female sexual development. The editor has a point of view, not a point of view as to which of the various authors' positions presented in this book is correct, or even the most useful, but a point of view about the format of such a book; namely, that the definitive answers, and the experts who will provide them, are not yet identified. Therefore, many voices should be heard from different areas of expertise, training, experience, and back ground. Inevitably there are contradictions and disagreements. There should be. Several authors who were asked to provide short discus sions for papers found themselves unable to answer in less than an ad ditional paper. The editor welcomed this response. This is an area full of ancient myths, new discoveries, and alternate perspectives. It is hoped that the book reflects these ambiguities and controversies and that it will stimulate as many questions as it provides answers. You will find represented in this volume, and its forthcoming companion volume on women's sexual experience, authors not gener ally found together between the covers. When useful and where pos sible, a discussion or an addendum to a paper has been included by an author who approaches the subject from a different base of infor mation or experience.
