Stories have persuasive powers: they can influence how a person thinks and acts. Inside Story explores the capacity of stories to direct our thinking, heighten our emotions, and thereby motivate people to do harm to others and to tolerate harm done by others. From terrorist violence to “mere” complacency with institutionalized harm, the book weds case study to cross-disciplinary theory. It builds upon timely work in the field of narrative criminology and provides a thorough analysis of how stories can promote or inhibit harmful action. By offering a sociological analysis of the emotional yet intersubjective experience of dangerous stories, the book fleshes out the perplexing mechanics of cultural influence on crime and other forms of harm.

A lot has already been said and written about the euro crisis: about the causes and consequences of the collapsing economy, the costly rescue of banks, the rising debts, the predicted end of the euro, the imminent exit of Greece, the ongoing search for the guilty parties, the disagreement about solutions, and the big consequences for people across the eurozone. Jeroen Dijsselbloem, president of the Eurogroup, was present at all meetings and sometimes spent nights searching for solutions. In this special book he takes us into the honest, not yet told story behind the euro crisis. Where did it really go wrong? How has the crisis finally been stopped? And how to proceed in the future of the euro zone? The Eurocrisis is the highly personal book of former Eurogroup chairman Dijsselbloem, in which he, as an insider, describes how a continent balanced on the edge of the abyss for years, and how it was ultimately saved. Jeroen Dijsselbloem (1966) is a Dutch politician. From 2012 to 2017 he was Minister of Finance in the Netherlands. From 2013 to January 2018 he was also chairman of the Eurogroup.

'In the beginning there was Syd Field. Then came McKee and Vogler. Now there is Dara Marks. Marks has long ranked among the top screenwriting theorists, now her teachings are available to everyone.' Creative Screenwriting 'Offers fresh insights into screenwriting structure, enabling writers to hone their craft and elevate their art.' Prof Richard Walter, UCLA Screenwriting Chairman 'This is a book you can read with each script you write, as both guide and inspiration.' Lisa Loomer, Screenwriter, Girl Interrupted and The Waiting Room 'Destined to become a classic.' Scriptwriter magazine Inside Story offers the most important advancement in screenwriting theory to come along in years. This innovative method for structuring a screenplay is designed to keep writers focused on the heart and soul of their story so that plot, character and theme create a unified whole. Marks' method offers an easy to follow template for story construction, helping the writer to identify what the story is actually about: the thematic intention. It then uses the internal character development of the protagonist as a vehicle to drive the thematic intention and the line of action within the story.
