Andrew Wyeth by Patricia Junker

Original Title: Andrew Wyeth

"Andrew Wyeth painted the landscapes and people in Chadds Ford, Pennsylvania, where he grew up, and in mid-coast Maine, where he spent each summer--places that would inspire him for over seven decades. This centennial exhibition is a fitting moment to trace the threads that weave through the art of Andrew Wyeth, which never failed to engage viewers and confound critics through the long twentieth century"--

Is It Too Late by Gabriele Junkers

Original Title: Is It Too Late

This book brings together a selection of classic psychoanalytical papers related to aging, dying, and death that have appeared in the renowned International Journal of Psychoanalysis. People are living longer than ever before, leading full and active lives long past retirement, and yet many analysts are averse to working with patients over the age of fifty. Sigmund Freud never wavered from his conviction that the elderly would not benefit from analysis and, despite the huge expansion in analytic technique and practice since the 1940s, the treatment of elderly patients is still not widely practiced. This is reflected in a paucity of papers on the subject--a mere twenty papers on the analysis of elderly patients have appeared in the journal's long history. The chosen papers come from eminent analysts, most of whom have embarked on clinical work with elderly patients. Two papers--one by Hanna Segal, who has also written the Foreword, and the other by Nina E. C. Coltart--address the analysis of an elderly patient directly and bring the work and the challenges it brings vividly to life. Also explored are such issues as death and the midlife crisis, loneliness and the aging process, aging and psychopathology, fear of death, transference and countertransference issues, and the final stage of the dying process. The book ends with Erik Erikson's paper on the generational cycle. This paper is a fitting conclusion from the pioneer whose work contributed to a clearer understanding of the impact of the experiences of the life cycle, from childhood to old age. It is to be hoped that this fascinating collection will stimulate further research and encourage more analysts to work with this neglected and growing section of the population. The Contributors: Norman A Cohen, Nina E. C. Coltart, Erik Homburger Erikson, Tor-Björn Hägglund, Elliott Jaques, Gabriele Junkers, Pearl H.M. King, Wolfgang Loch, George H. Pollock, Hanna Segal, Harold W. Wylie, and Mavis L. Wylie

Psycho A Novel by Robert Bloch

Original Title: Psycho A Novel

Robert Bloch's Psycho captivated a nation when it appeared in 1959. The story was all too real-indeed this classic was inspired by the real-life story of Ed Gein, a psychotic murderer who led a dual life. Alfred Hitchcock too was captivated, and turned the book into one of the most-loved classic films of all time the year after it was released. Norman Bates loves his Mother. She has been dead for the past twenty years, or so people think. Norman knows better though. He has lived with Mother ever since leaving the hospital in the old house up on the hill above the Bates motel. One night Norman spies on a beautiful woman that checks into the hotel as she undresses. Norman can't help but spy on her. Mother is there though. She is there to protect Norman from his filthy thoughts. She is there to protect him with her butcher knife.

Us Navy A 7 Corsair Ii Units Of The Vietnam War by Peter Mersky

Original Title: Us Navy A 7 Corsair Ii Units Of The Vietnam War

Arriving on station with the USS Ranger (CVA-61) in early December 1967, the first Corsair II squadron became operational immediatedly and sustained its first combat loss three weeks later. This book tells how the A-7 soon proved its worth supporting ground operations in South Vietnam. As it continued to serve in the ground support role, the navy swiftly introduced the A-7E which soon ran into difficulties with supply lines perhaps on account of what many perceived to have been a rushed introduction to service. Once these teething problems were resolved, the A-7E became the primary air-to-ground aircraft of the fleet.

The Last Shot by Darcy Frey

Original Title: The Last Shot

It ought to be just a game, but basketball on the playgrounds of Coney Island is much more than that — for many young men it represents their only hope of escape from a life of crime, poverty, and despair. In The Last Shot, Darcy Frey chronicles the aspirations of four of the neighborhood’s most promising players. What they have going for them is athletic talent, grace, and years of dedication. But working against them are woefully inadequate schooling, family circumstances that are often desperate, and the slick, brutal world of college athletic recruitment. Incisively and compassionately written, The Last Shot introduces us to unforgettable characters and takes us into their world with an intimacy seldom seen in contemporary journalism. The result is a startling and poignant expose of inner-city life and the big business of college basketball.
