They can walk through fire. They would sacrifice their own lives to save yours. In the tradition of Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance, Thoughts on Fire is a meditation on how to live a life that matters. Drawing on his dual life as a philosophy professor and firefighter, "Dr. Frank" begins a journey not just into the fire, but inside himself. The lessons of this voyage are not just about axes and hoses but hope, forgiveness and love. "As a professor and a firefighter, Dr. McCluskey shifts gears easily between the metaphysical and the macho, pontificating in a pin striped suit by day and plunging into a smoky, flaming house by night." -The New York Times "It is a book that you will want to read again and again. It is a remarkable story that you will want to share with those you love." -Dr. Robert Schachat, author of The Seven Conditions of Trust "Thoughts on Fire is a book that is at once entertaining and enlightening" -Dr. John Briggs, author of The Seven Life Lessons of Chaos

Culture survives today by means of a constant recycling, optimistically trying to overcome its own decadence in the 21st century. Recycling Culture(s) addresses from a variety of perspectives this strategy, analyzing not only a wide range of texts but also of cultural practices. As the volume shows, culture thrives on a permanent state of flux, borrowing materials for its own survival wherever they are found and always favouring hybridity. This refers not only to how texts cross genre and medium boundaries but also to how identities and the very idea of culture grow out of recycling what is at hand both synchronically and diachronically. Divided in two sections, ‘Part I: Recycling the Book and the Screen’ and ‘Part II: Recycling Identity, Consumption and History,’ the twenty essays offered here are the work of an international group of scholars dealing with different linguistic and geographical environments. A primary aim of the volume is breaking away with the compartmentalisation of Cultural Studies into non-communicating linguistic domains to offer an eclectic, engaging mixture of approaches. This is the twelfth monographic volume of the series Culture & Power edited by members of the permanent seminar on Cultural Studies ‘Culture & Power,’ which has organised an international yearly conference since 1995. "Recycling Culture(s)/ is the latest in the series of Culture and Power books to come out of Spain. It features essays not only from many of the most distinguished cultural studies scholars on the Iberian Peninsular but many from beyond its borders. What makes this volume so stimulating, relevant and exiting is that the contributors range across an impressive assortment of contexts of (and for) recycling. The book’s thematic base is impressive taking in, as it does, the relevance of recycling history, identity and a multitude of popular texts (written and audio-visual). All contributions are theoretically informed and the authors consider subjects from comic-book heroes, James Bond and /Clockwork Orange/ to African-Carribbean women, Australian national myth and mobile phones. The contributors and editor should be congratulated on producing a theoretically coherent, challenging and important intervention into contemporary cultural studies.

Using real-life stories, scientific concepts, and awareness tools, The Book of Calm challenges the constraints of inevitable change and turbulent events with a dynamic stance of clarity, compassion, and choice. Transitions expert Nancy G. Shapiro moves gracefully and deliberately through subjects as diverse as welcoming paradox, fierce self-care, power and conversation, and the difficult task of connecting with others when faced with our thousand-fold differences―providing convincing evidence that people stuck in fear or indecision can experience profound insights, break harmful habits, and move into their own wisdom by letting go of old beliefs. Inspiring and compelling, The Book of Calm supports readers to reimagine and renew their lives and their place in the world by transforming patterns within thoughts, language, and behaviors―one person, one family, one community at a time.

Cajete examines the multiple levels of meaning that inform Native astronomy, cosmology, psychology, agriculture, and the healing arts. Unlike the western scientific method, native thinking does not isolate an object or phenomenon in order to understand it, but perceives it in terms of relationship. An understanding of the relationships that bind together natural forces and all forms of life has been fundamental to the ability of indigenous peoples to live for millennia in spiritual and physical harmony with the land. It is clear that the first peoples offer perspectives that can help us work toward solutions at this time of global environmental crisis.

We propose that the major health crises in the United States are not about heart disease, cancer, osteoporosis, or obesity. Instead they are about violence, prejudice, social isolation, and runaway materialism. Unfortunately, traditional health promotion continues to "attack" our problems by declaring war on disease, obsessing about epidemiologically based risk factors and frightening people about what they eat, how much they weigh, and what they like to do or not do. These approaches rarely help and often create an atmosphere of anxiety and confusion. This book is an invitation to health professionals to rethink our current understanding of health, illness, and the process of healing. It covers topics that are rarely addressed in health promotion including the history of the human species, the Scientific Revolution, quantum physics, and the latest mind/body/spirit research. While it may seem as if this information is only marginally related to health, we believe it provides a critical foundation for the truly holistic approach to health promotion we describe in detail in this book. It is time to re-create our profession and set a daring new course to improve the quality of the human experience.
