The discovery and treatment of insanity remains one of the most debated and discussed issues in social history. Focusing on the second half of the nineteenth century, The Politics of Madness provides a new perspective on this important topic, based on research drawn from both local and national material. Within a social and cultural history of the English political and class order, it presents a fresh appraisal of the significance of the asylum in the decades following the creation of a national asylum system in 1845. Arguing that the new asylums provided a meeting place for different social interests and aspirations, the text asserts that this then marked a transition in provincial power relations from the landed interests to the new coalition of professional, commercial and populist groups, which gained control of the public asylums at the end of the period surveyed.

The National Book Award–finalist movingly examines the lives of a group of New Yorkers deeply affected by one woman’s troubled life—and death. Marian is haunted by an unspoken past reflected in the choices she makes. Whether it’s her drug addiction or her dubious affairs, she finds herself increasingly adrift and alone. Yet in a city of millions, her story plays a part in the lives of others. Jaded cops who register Marian at a glance, a lover who agonizes over her abortion, a close friend stunned by her tragic overdose, a panhandling dwarf making the rounds in her Upper West Side neighborhood—each story weaves back and forth through time, revealing a compelling, compassionate portrait of one woman’s tragic fate. In a novel whose “structure combines delicacy and great tensile strength . . . Bell’s voice is increasingly diverse, accurate and, in this book of mourning, powerfully moving” (Publishers Weekly). One of America’s finest storytellers shows once again that he is a writer of “superb command” (The New York Times).

2011 was the year of dreaming dangerously: we all witnessed (andparticipated in) a series of shattering events. Emancipatory dreamsmobilized protesters in New York, on Tahrir Square, in London andAthens – and there were the obscure destructive dreams propelling themass murderer Breivik and racist populists all around Europe, fromthe Netherlands to Hungary. The subterranean work of dissatisfactionis continuing: rage is accumulating and a new wave of revolts willfollow. Why? Because the events of 2011 were signs from the future: weshould analyze them as limited, distorted (sometimes even perverted)fragments of a utopian future which lies dormant in the present as itshidden potential.

Megan Carson went on her first real date at age 27. Some might call her a late bloomer. Her first real relationship lasted about three months, and though Megan did not love Chris, she was heart broken when they broke up. She grieved the loss of the relationship, but even more she grieved the loss of who she was in the relationship. She had never met “Megan the Girlfriend,” and once she did, Megan really liked her—and when she was gone, she wanted her back! So what did Megan do? She joined a dating service. A Year of Blind Dates follows Megan’s dating adventures in Southern California as she searches for Mr. Right, not just Mr. Right Now. As her “ideal guy” changes over time, the one thing that is never negotiable is her desire to find a man with a deep spiritual side. But can she have the “total package” without compromising her strong faith? Can Megan trust the dating service to deliver a man of God who will make her laugh and treat her well? This is the story of Megan’s search for the man of her dreams, and the good, bad and really, really bad dates along the way.

Lifes journey of past times and presents rewards in finding. Fighting to gain an escape that was there all along but couldnt see it. Living a lie of truths aftermath. Finding out it was a lie, leaving no more protection. No solid ground to pace or rock to climb. Smack in the center off all plastic the glass beck end. Shattering your dreams, fantasies, and heart. Coded no longer rapped around the breakable pieces of you. Heavy tasks pounded by the beating clocks hands. But unto me thee breathe steal waters and feeds mercy filled grasp. Allowing my mind to think past my thoughts. Calming the flame burning my soul. Dont think just feel, feel pass your heart into your soul and let your imagination show you the journey. A collection of lifes story line of a young soul.
