Claude M. Steiner (1935 to 2017) was a bestselling author and psychotherapist who pioneered the popular field of Transactional Analysis, which involves analysis of an individual’s social interactions as a basis for understanding behavior. First published in 1981 and now back in print with a new package, The Other Side of Power is the sequel to Dr. Steiner’s influential Scripts People Live and feels as relevant today as ever. Power—we all want it, we all need it. We feel its effects in our business, family, and personal relationships. In this accessible volume, Dr. Steiner shows how everyone can be powerful without being power-hungry. Instead of chasing the increasingly empty and improbably “conventional American power dream,” as Dr. Steiner puts it, the other side of power—our own personal strengths—can be used to get us what we want. This humane approach is not predicated upon the exploitation or manipulation of others, which leads to power for the few and not the many. In clear terms and with specific examples, the author shows how to draw instead upon individual strengths to neutralize and turn to advantage situations that could otherwise result in feeling of powerlessness. The Other Side of Power teaches us that once we understand the nature of power, we can learn to deal with it more comfortably and use it toward more rewarding personal and professional relationships. Dr. Steiner’s classic in psychological theory offers a meaningful and practical guide to harnessing the other side of power.

Didactically, a textbook of criminology should start at the beginning. The learning process, also an emotional process, begins in criminology with the concepts, views, emotions, attitudes and ideas we have regarding crime and criminals. Exploration of these underlying factors is one of the aims of the present book. We can free our thinking only by being aware of the significance of our own feelings and thoughts about a phenomenon like crime. 'That is the basic problem confronting us. In scien tific thinking implicit postulates as to the sensus communis, unless recognized and 1 neutralized, grow into idols.' The fight against crime is one example of such an idol. Crimes and criminals exist only by virtue of reactions to certain forms of be havior. For this reason this book will begin by examining the reactions of society to crime. Criminology is primarily a science of others than offenders. In this sense I invert criminology. The history of criminology is not so much a history of offenders, 2 as a history of the reactions of those in power.

I write this book in a social milieu where telecommunications can make a very private act globally public in a moment. A question I don’t consider is whether and to what extent the publicity attendant on a potential suicide inclines one toward or against the follow through. I suspect that it figures in, but what it amounts to in the end differs widely in each case. What I do have in mind is a rather full discussion and consideration of a host of questions I don’t hear being asked in the discussion of suicide today. In fact, I find the comments from most media talking heads to be either sincerely trite or politely banal. But then, one shouldn’t expect an in depth exploration of any side of the suicide question from the popular media. Where one should expect a more thorough investigation, however, is from the spokespeople representing our culture’s philosophical and theological traditions. What I hear most often has been said before, often in a context where the authoritative spokesmen for the Church issue blanket condemnations backed up by the written codes of civil law, canon law, moral law or natural law. Authorization for this outright condemnation of suicide, ipso facto, has always been backed up by law of some kind and its interpretation to the people in the pew or the public at large.

From Jeanne Braselton, author of the crtically acclaimed A False Sense of Well Being comes an irresistible new novel about the power of enduring love, poignantly told by an unforgettable narrator who’s watching from her place on “the other side of air.” Katy Doyal has loved her husband, Ephraim, since their very first meeting in Rome, Georgia, when she was eight years old. Now, realizing that her time on earth is slipping away, Katy is determined to leave behind an orderly life and enlists the help of a stranger–a middle-aged, robust, wild-haired woman named Rose–to become a caretaker to her dear, dotty curmudgeon. After Katy passes, Ephraim is surprised to notice that his grief is easier to bear thanks to the arrival of this outsider. Even Katy, observing the events from the great beyond, is pleased. If only Katy and Ephraim’s only child, Wyatt, could be so accepting. After moving to California to start his own life, Wyatt is still unable to escape his feelings of insecurity and exclusion from his parent’s ironclad union–a neediness that endangers his own marriage, and threatens to overshadow his mother’s death and upstage his father’s mourning. But Rose isn’t about to let anything distract her from her sacred mission. And Katy–watching her family embracing life and love again–knows she needs to let go before she can earn “her wings.” From the Trade Paperback edition.

What does real leadership look like? Is it all about just being the boss or the one in charge? The Other Side of S.E.L.F. explores these and other questions regarding the development of leaders moving from that which comes natural to our humanity to the development of true leadership skills. These skills move us from being “self-center” to being a “servant”, from “egotistical” to “evangelistic”, from “lustful” to “lonely”, and from “fearful” to “free”. The Other Side of S.E.L.F. offers a broad and yet deep study of what leadership should look like in both the secular and non-secular setting.

This manuscript that you are reading is not a book in the traditional sense of the word. It is rather a compilation of thoughts and experiences I have had and various treatises that I have felt compelled to write over the last few years. It is because of my desire to share these observations that I have decided to put them together. They all served to codify my thoughts and feelings and convey what I personally believe in areas of health of body, mind and spirit. Because some of these articles were written at different times, you may find certain truths repeated from time to time. Please forgive this and edit them out; it is my feeling that they serve to reinforce that which has helped me to arrive happily at three score and ten. I still refer back to this book as a resource and find its validity for me to be sustaining. If it helps you to have at least one happier day, it will have fulfilled its purpose.

What were young conservatives doing in the 1960s while SDS and SNCC were working to move the political center to the left? The Other Side of the Sixties offers a gripping account of Young Americans for Freedom (YAF), an organization that became a leading force in promoting conservative ideas and that helped lay the groundwork for today's conservatism. John Andrew has mined unique archival material to document YAF's efforts to form a viable organization, define a new conservatism, attack the liberal establishment, and seize control of the Republican party, all while battling voter hostility and internal factionalism. The author also uncovers the Kennedy administration's use of the IRS to subvert YAF and other right-wing organizations through tax audits and investigations. By painting a more balanced portrait of political thinking in the sixties, Andrew offers a new and much needed look at the ideological atmosphere of a vibrant decade.

This book will help fellow travellers to become aware and learn how to change hurt or fear energy into love energy. Love energy can heal the holes in our emotional body, rejuvenate our physical body, and resurrect our spiritual body. In essence, in order to heal our love deficit, we must become free of our emotional garbage that was created by fear or any relative of fear. When we are free of fear, we can travel the love path and experience what Florence Scovel Shinn referred to as the square of life: health, wealth, love, and perfect Self expression.
