The Art of Winnie-the-Pooh - James Campbell Preview:

Foreword by Minette Shepard The enchanting story of some of the most beloved characters in English children’s literature—Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends from the Hundred Acre Wood, Piglet, Eeyore, Tigger, Kanga, Roo, Christopher Robin, and more—and the remarkable partnership between a writer and an illustrator that brought them to life, told for the first time in this beautiful volume illustrated with more than 125 full-color images from the Pooh series, never-before-seen sketches, artwork, family photographs, and memorabilia. Winnie-the-Pooh and his friends have enthralled generations of children and have become some of the world’s most beloved characters. But before their adventures were captured in many millions of books published in nearly fifty languages, they started life in the 1920s as the product of a unique collaboration between author A. A. Milne and illustrator E. H. Shepard. They wove images and text together in a way that was utterly original for the time. It was a process that Shepard relished; he continued to create artwork for new editions until his death in 1976 at the age of ninety-six. This lovingly designed, full-color volume, which includes a foreword from Shepard’s granddaughter, tells the story behind this remarkable partnership, and traces the evolution of Shepard’s work, from his first tentative sketches to the illustrations we know and love, including the characters’ later incarnations by the artists at Walt Disney Studios. A stunning and rare collection, filled with some never-before-published sketches and the first illustration of Pooh, The Art of Winnie-the-Pooh is a treasure trove of early art and an exclusive behind-the-scenes peek at the creation of Pooh bear and Hundred Acre Wood—direct from the artist’s estate—that is sure to become a cherished keepsake for devoted fans and readers who grew up with these timeless characters..

Imagining Animals - Caroline Case Preview:

Imagining Animals explores the making of animal images in art therapy and child psychotherapy. It examines two contrasting primitive states of mind: the investing of the world about us with life through animism and participation mystique, and the lifeless world of autistic states of mind encountered in children who are hard to reach. Caroline Case examines how the emergence of animal imagery in therapy can act as a powerful catalyst for children in autistic states of mind, or with a background of trauma, abuse or depression. She also looks at animal / human relationships, and animal symbolism, as well as three-dimensional claywork and the development of personality. Subjects covered include: * animals on stage in therapy - anthropomorphic animal objects * the location of self in animals * entangled and confusional children: analytical approaches to psychotic thinking and autistic features in childhood. The book concludes with a compelling extended case study, which describes analytic work with a child with multiple symptoms, using the various therapeutic tools of play and art, painting and clay, and the development of character, plot and narrative. Imagining Animals offers a unique insight into the role and representation of animal imagery in art therapy and child psychotherapy, which will be of interest to all arts and play therapists working with children as well as adult psychotherapists interested in the use of imagery..

Goodbye Christopher Robin - Ann Thwaite Preview:

Goodbye Christopher Robin: A.A. Milne and the Making of Winnie-the-Pooh is drawn from Ann Thwaite’s Whitbread Award-winning biography of A. A. Milne , one of England’s most successful writers. After serving in the First World War, Milne wrote a number of well-received plays, but his greatest triumph came when he created Winnie-the-Pooh, Piglet, Tigger, Eeyore and, of course, Christopher Robin, the adventurous little boy based on his own son. Goodbye Christopher Robin inspired the film directed by Simon Curtis and starring Domhnall Gleeson, Margot Robbie and Kelly Macdonald. It offers the reader a glimpse into the relationship between Milne and the real-life Christopher Robin, whose toys inspired the magical world of the Hundred Acre Wood. Goodbye Christopher Robin is a story of celebrity, a story of both the joys and pains of success and, ultimately, the story of how one man created a series of enchanting tales that brought hope and comfort to an England ravaged by the First World War..

Reimagining Capitalism in a World on Fire - Rebecca Henderson Preview:

A renowned Harvard professor debunks prevailing orthodoxy with a new intellectual foundation and a practical pathway forward for a system that has lost its moral and ethical foundation. Free market capitalism is one of humanity's greatest inventions and the greatest source of prosperity the world has ever seen. But this success has been costly. Capitalism is on the verge of destroying the planet and destabilizing society as wealth rushes to the top. The time for action is running short. Rebecca Henderson's rigorous research in economics, psychology, and organizational behavior, as well as her many years of work with companies around the world, give us a path forward. She debunks the worldview that the only purpose of business is to make money and maximize shareholder value. She shows that we have failed to reimagine capitalism so that it is not only an engine of prosperity but also a system that is in harmony with environmental realities, the striving for social justice, and the demands of truly democratic institutions. Henderson's deep understanding of how change takes place, combined with fascinating in-depth stories of companies that have made the first steps towards reimagining capitalism, provide inspiring insight into what capitalism can be. Together with rich discussions of important role of government and how the worlds of finance, governance, and leadership must also evolve, Henderson provides the pragmatic foundation for navigating a world faced with unprecedented challenge, but also with extraordinary opportunity for those who can get it right..

The Rapids - Yogesh Patel Preview:

Yogesh Patel raids diverse areas of experience and many literatures to make a ‘jazz of poetry’. These poems travel with a Freedom Pass and a crow-sharp eye through Greek, Indian, African and Chinese myth, via the error page and cryptocurrency, all the way to the milk round and disrupted ecologies. They play on connections and disconnections, acting as improvisations that bounce sound and light into the broken corners of the world. -Imtiaz Dharker To come across Yogesh Patel’s poetry is like a door opening to the fresh light at the end of a dark corridor. There are poets of the east and poets of the west, but in this collection Patel shows that he is a poet of both sensibilities. In this way, the subtleties of Indian poetic form and tone are gently entwined with those of the English tradition to form a new, delicate and original utterance. Daring, sophisticated and playful - Patel’s poetry is a calligraphy of the soul made visible. It is a rare achievement. -Steven O’Brien.

About a Body - Jenny Corrigall,Helen Payne,Heward Wilkinson Preview:

How does our body reveal us to ourselves? The body can inform the work we do in mental health. This unique collection invites the reader to consider the way we think about the embodied mind, and how it can inform both our lives and our work in psychotherapy and counselling. The body is viewed as integral to the mind in this book, and in the approaches illustrated in it. Instead of splitting off the body and treating the patient as a body with a mind, contributors from a variety of approaches ask the reader to consider how we might be with, and work with, ‘bodymind’ as an interrelated whole. Subjects covered include: the application of affective neuroscience understandings to life as well as to clinical issues the body in psychotherapy with a person who is facing death the history, significance and scope of body psychotherapy today psychoanalytic approaches to working with the embodied mind authentic movement groups in the development of wellbeing in our bodymindspirit the body and spirituality This book is unique in its pluralism: it includes a wide range of differing views of the importance of the body in psychotherapy, both in theory and in practice, and it relates these to the latest discussions in affective neuroscience. It will be invaluable for those working in, or studying, psychotherapy and counselling, and will also interest those working generally in the mental health field..

The Palgrave Handbook of Early Modern Literature and Science - Howard Marchitello,Evelyn Tribble Preview:

This book is about the complex ways in which science and literature are mutually-informing and mutually-sustaining. It does not cast the literary and the scientific as distinct, but rather as productively in-distinct cultural practices: for the two dozen new essays collected here, the presiding concern is no longer to ask how literary writers react to scientific writers, but rather to study how literary and scientific practices are imbricated. These specially-commissioned essays from top scholars in the area range across vast territories and produce seemingly unlikely unions: between physics and rhetoric, math and Milton, Boyle and the Bible, plague and plays, among many others. In these essays so-called scientific writing turns out to traffic in metaphor, wit, imagination, and playfulness normally associated with literature provides material forms and rhetorical strategies for thinking physics, mathematics, archeology, and medicine..

Ecocritical Perspectives on Children's Texts and Cultures - Nina Goga,Lykke Guanio-Uluru,Bjørg Oddrun Hallås,Aslaug Nyrnes Preview:

This volume presents key contributions to the study of ecocriticism in Nordic children’s and YA literary and cultural texts, in dialogue with international classics. It investigates the extent to which texts for children and young adults reflect current environmental concerns. The chapters are grouped into five thematic areas: Ethics and Aesthetics, Landscape, Vegetal, Animal, and Human, and together they explore Nordic representations and a Nordic conception, or feeling, of nature. The textual analyses are complemented with the lived experiences of outdoor learning practices in preschools and schools captured through children’s own statements. The volume highlights the growing influence of posthumanist theory and the continuing traces of anthropocentric concerns within contemporary children’s literature and culture, and a non-dualistic understanding of nature-culture interaction is reflected in the conceptual tool of the volume: The Nature in Culture Matrix..

Avoiding Attack - Graeme D. Ruxton,William L. Allen,Thomas N. Sherratt,Michael P. Speed Preview:

Avoiding Attack discusses the diversity of mechanisms by which prey avoid predator attacks and explores how such defensive mechanisms have evolved through natural selection. It considers how potential prey avoid detection, how they make themselves unprofitable to attack, how they communicate this status, and how other species have exploited these signals. Using carefully selected examples of camouflage, mimicry, and warning signals drawn from a wide range of species and ecosystems, the authors summarise the latest research into these fascinating adaptations, developing mathematical models where appropriate and making recommendations for future study. This second edition has been extensively rewritten, particularly in the application of modern genetic research techniques which have transformed our recent understanding of adaptations in evolutionary genomics and phylogenetics. The book also employs a more integrated and systematic approach, ensuring that each chapter has a broader focus on the evolutionary and ecological consequences of anti-predator adaptation. The field has grown and developed considerably over the last decade with an explosion of new research literature, making this new edition timely..

Children, Citizenship and Environment - Bronwyn Hayward Preview:

When it was first published in 2012, Children, Citizenship and Environment correctly predicted a strong surge in youth activism as children are confronted by four difficult and intersecting challenges: dangerous environmental change, weakening democracies, growing social inequality, and a global economy marked by unprecedented youth unemployment and unsustainable resource extraction. Nearly a decade on, global school strikes in response to the threats of chaotic climate change have underscored why youth action is vital and effective. While the experience of a world pandemic may have interrupted the rise of youthful street activism, it has also served to underscore the problems of deepening inequality and the risks of increasingly authoritarian government responses that young citizens must also confront. Against this background the message of this substantially revised edition is as important today as it was when it was first published. Controversial, yet ultimately hopeful, political scientist Bronwyn Hayward rethinks assumptions about youth citizenship in neoliberal democracies. Writing with co-authors, school climate strikers, Indigenous and disability activists, teachers, researchers and community advocates, Hayward develops her ‘SEEDS’ model of ecological citizenship for a school strike generation. The SEEDS of citizenship focus on Social agency, Environmental education, Embedded justice, Decentred deliberation and Self-transcendence. Discussion considers how these SEEDS of citizenship support young citizens’ democratic imagination and develop their ‘handprint’ for social justice. This ground-breaking book will be of interest to a wide audience, in particular teachers and professionals who work in Environmental Citizenship Education, as well as students and community activists with an interest in environmental change, democracy and intergenerational justice..

The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh - Kathryn Aalto Preview:

Loved Goodbye Christopher Robin? Learn more about the real place that inspired A. A. Milne’s beloved stories. Delve into the home of the world’s most beloved bear! The Natural World of Winnie-the-Pooh explores the magical landscapes where Pooh, Christopher Robin, and their friends live and play. The Hundred Acre Wood—the setting for Winnie-the-Pooh’s adventures—was inspired by Ashdown Forest, a wildlife haven that spans more than 6,000 acres in southeast England. In the pages of this enchanting book you can visit the ancient black walnut tree on the edge of the forest that became Pooh’s house, go deep into the pine trees to find Poohsticks Bridge, and climb up to the top of the enchanted Galleons Lap, where Pooh says goodbye to Christopher Robin. You will discover how Milne’s childhood connection with nature and his role as a father influenced his famous stories, and how his close collaboration with illustrator E. H. Shepard brought those stories to life. This charming book also serves as a guide to the plants, animals, and places of the remarkable Ashdown Forest, whether you are visiting in person or from the comfort of your favorite armchair. In a delightful narrative, enriched with Shepard’s original illustrations, hundreds of color photographs, and Milne’s own words, you will rediscover your favorite characters and the magical place they called home. “Aalto’s lovely book provides two great pleasures: a visit to the actual wild spots that inform the fictional Pooh world and a chance to slip into our memories of the books themselves.” —The Washington Post.

A contemporary master of the nursery tale brings her unique imagination to a beloved classic. First published in 1924—two years before Winnie-the-Pooh—A. A. Milne’s When We Were Very Young is among the most familiar and cherished works in children’s literature. A whimsical celebration of childhood, Milne wrote the collection for his three-year-old son, and the poems have been read and sung to children for decades since. Now, Rosemary Wells brings her signature cast of animal and child characters to a dozen of Milne’s best-loved poems, including “Disobedience,” “The King’s Breakfast,” and “Buckingham Palace” (which stars the one and only Christopher Robin). This musical and memorable edition is by turns traditional and modern, with both delightful charm and wry sensibility..

Консильери. Лидер в тени - Ричард Хитнер Preview:

«Лидер и консильери» – одно из немногих изданий по психологии лидерства и управлению компаниями, посвященное второму эшелону управленцев: исполнительным и операционным директорам, вице-президентам, заместителям, советникам, чье влияние может определять судьбы стран, политических партий, мультинациональных корпораций и некоммерческих организаций. Исследуя феномен «второго по званию», автор рассматривает особенности теневого лидерства, качества, необходимые для этой роли, а также способы выстраивания эффективного взаимодействия с первым лицом организации. Советы и рекомендации, изложенные в «Лидере и консильери», не ограничены сферой управления, поэтому книга будет интересна как опытным и начинающим управленцам, так и широкому кругу читателей.Ранее книга выходила под названием «Консильери: Лидер в тени»..

重新想像資本主義 - 瑞貝卡.韓德森 Rebecca Henderson Preview:

✭《金融時報》和麥肯錫年度最佳書籍 誰說永續、獲利只能二選一? 本書為投資人和企業經營者提供實際作法 全面實踐ESG,打造兼具永續與獲利的新商模 曾經帶動經濟成長、創造榮景的資本主義,如今也讓我們付出慘重代價:氣溫持續上升、信任不斷下降、價值體制崩壞。企業背負著惡名,也飽嚐苦果,需要新的經營模式來化解危機! 本書作者、名列哈佛大學25位「校級教授」之一的韓德森,是當今研究環境、社會、公司治理(ESG)領域的權威,她指出,「為了賺快錢,我們正在摧毀世界、破壞社會的根基。在整個系統分崩離析之前,我們必須跨越股東價值極大化的簡單思維。」 韓德森以其在經濟學、心理學和組織行為方面的嚴謹研究,加上過去15年來與Nike、IBM、聯合利華、沃爾瑪、豐田汽車等多家企業合作的結果,找出可以在獲利的同時也兼顧永續,並為社會的公平與正義負起責任,甚至可以賺更多的具體方法。 書中援引不同產業、不同規模的大量實例,為經營者提供價值理念、金融財務、公司治理、領導力,乃至社會體制等面向上的變革新方向。包括: ● 將「利社會」納入企業願景; ● 視員工為事業夥伴,打造共同使命; ● 奉行ESG永續指標,削減投資人權力; ● 與同業、供應鏈、第三部門結為同盟; ● 重建體制、整頓政府。 而身為個人,當然也能發揮影響、成為改變的力量。就從累積生活中微小的行動開始,包括:想想自己生命中最重要的是什麼;身體力行地做對環境有益的事;把價值觀融入工作中;進入政府部門工作;加入你認同的政治團體,為理念發聲;好好照顧自己,也要記得樂在其中。 專家推薦 林子倫 行政院能源及減碳辦公室副執行長、台灣大學公共事務研究所副教授 詹順貴 律師、前環保署副署長 顏擇雅 作家 水野弘道 日本政府年金投資基金執行董事兼投資長 董明倫 沃爾瑪總裁兼執行長 「這本擲地有聲又簡單易讀的書,吹響了重新想像和建構資本主義的號角。」──《國家為什麼會失敗》(Why Nations Fail)共同作者戴倫.艾塞默魯(Daron Acemoglu) 「這是一本寫給有一顆善心的現實主義者的書。」──亞瑟.布魯克斯(Arthur C. Brooks),美國企業研究院名譽院長、《愛你的敵人》(Love Your Enemies)作者 「本書充滿獨到見解,以實際而富開創性的嶄新視角看待問題,為資本主義兼顧獲利、公平及永續的轉型提出了明確的方法。」──美國環境責任經濟聯盟(CERES)主席兼執行長明蒂.魯伯(Mindy Lubber) 「韓德森在書中深入剖析企業在解決當前社會和環境重大問題上應當扮演的角色,無疑是當代重要對話裡的重要聲音,充滿啟發性。」──沃爾瑪總裁兼執行長董明倫(Doug McMillon) 「在失火的世界中,維持現狀不是個好選擇。韓德森論證重建商業和資本主義遊戲規則的必要性,並就解決當前人類社會重大問題必須做哪些事,提出發人深省的想法。」──百思買(Best Buy)前董事長兼執行長休伯特.喬利(Hubert Joly) 「任何與當今經濟體系有利害關係的人都非讀不可的一本書。韓德森提出的思維領導力和令人信服的例子,讓投資人和企業主管可以掌握實際的方法,實現永續且廣納包容的經濟成長。」──日本政府年金投資基金(GPIF)執行董事兼投資長水野弘道 「資本主義讓我們走到了現在,然而人類社會要邁向下一步,必須要有新的視野和行動。這正是韓德森的書可以幫助我們做到的。書中對資本主義的重新想像,充滿了智慧,正是當代社會急需的及時雨。」──Kickstarter共同創辦人兼前任執行長、《未來可以是這樣》(This Could Be Our Future)作者楊希.史崔克勒(Yancey Strickler) 「充滿開創性的書,寫得十分精采,結合了深厚的人道精神、清晰的思維,以及對商業的透徹理解。本書論述嚴謹,瓦解了資本主義無法改變的老論調,能夠打動尚未意識到深度變革已刻不容緩的讀者。」──領袖探索(Leaders’Quest)及Future Stewards創辦合夥人琳賽.蕾文(Lindsay Levin) 「韓德森以清晰的思路和無比的熱情,寫下如何建立使命導向型組織的精采指引。在氣溫不斷上升、信任不斷下降的年代,這無疑是成功的最可靠途徑。」──《以少創多》(More from Less)作者、《第二次機器時代》(The Second Machine Age)及《機器,平台,群眾》(Machine, Platform, Crowd)共同作者安德魯.麥克費(Andrew McAfee) 「韓德森把學術研究和個人經驗交織在一起,觀點清晰而有見地,闡明企業可以如何帶頭解決當前最有挑戰性的問題,讓企業和社會都能受益。閱讀這本書,你會充滿希望。」──亞斯本研究所(Aspen Institute)副總裁朱迪絲.塞繆爾森 (Judith Samuelson) 「韓德森以生動的文字、易懂的語言、豐富有趣的個案研究,全面檢視我們需要做什麼來確保人類繼續走向未來。每位讀者應該都會深思她呼籲我們建立的經濟模式。」──惠普基金會(Hewlett Foundation)主席賴瑞.克萊默(Larry Kramer) 「企業要在這驚濤駭浪中航行,這本書是不可或缺的經營策略指南。」──牛津大學教授、《社會向左,資本向右》(The Future of Capitalism)作者保羅.柯利爾(Paul Collier) 「本書是對企業領袖的號召,要他們快速地好好想清楚利潤以外的企業使命,用企業經營創造善的力量。」──貝瑞威米勒(Barry-Wehmiller)執行長、《每個員工都重要》(Everybody Matters)作者鮑勃.查普曼(Bob Chapman).
