7 Allardice, Pamela Love Potions, Charms & Other Romantic Notions
USA / Australia Mallard Pr 1991 0792457013 / 9780792457015 1st Edition Hard Cover Good Good 12mo Sally Simons 
89 indexed pages including many colour illustrations. The pursuit of love, more than any other aspect of our lives, is still governed by a wealth of superstitions. Children play ancient match-making games, while lovers seek lucky omens and observe time-honored rituals in their search for a partner. The wedding ceremony itself has many traditions which are still kept up, even when those taking part are unaware of their significance. In Love Potions, Pamela Allardice introduces the reader to this traditional lore and the methods used to win a lover's heart. Many everyday flowers, fruits, herbs, and spices have special significance. While you should be pleased to receive a bouquet of red geraniums indicating that your lover is melancholy without you, you should be wary of a missive trimmed with sweet peas, signifying indifference. This beautifully illustrated book gives the history of lucky omens, ancient rituals and strange concoctions used by lovers - even by such famous lovers as Napoleon, Madame du Barry, Elizabeth I and the infamous Marquis de Sade.

I'm Not Scared, Ammaniti, Niccolo
8 Ammaniti, Niccolo I'm Not Scared
Australia Text Publishing 2004 187700846X / 9781877008467 Reprint Glossy Pictorial Soft Cover Good 12mo 
215 pages. Translated from the Italian as: "Io non ho paura" which was first published by Giulio Einaudi Editore 2001. Winner of the prestigious 2001 Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Fiction. 1978, the hottest summer of the twentieth century. In a tiny Italian rural community, the adults shelter indoors while six children venture out on their bikes across the scorched, deserted countryside. In the midst of a sea of golden wheat, nine-year-old Michele Amitrano discovers a secret so momentous, so terrible, that he dare not tell anyone about it. To come to terms with what he finds, he will have to draw strength from his own imagination and sense of humanity. The reader witnesses a dual story: the one that is seen through Michele's eyes, and the tragedy involving the adults of this isolated hamlet. The result is an immensely powerful, lyrical and skilfully narrated novel, reminiscent of such classics as Stand By Me, To Kill a Mockingbird andThe Adventures of Tom Sawyer. A compelling and utterly absorbing read, I'm Not Scared reinforces Ammaniti's status as a major literary talent. Winner of the Viareggio-Repaci Prize for Literature. Niccolo Ammaniti has written two collections of short stories and six novels, four of which have been translated into English. He was the youngest ever winner of the Italian Viareggio Literary Prize for Fiction for his best-selling novel I'm Not Scared,which has been translated into thirty-five languages. The Crossroads received the Premio Strega Prize in 2007, Italy's equivalent to the Booker Prize. Review: This gripping American debut by Italian novelist Ammaniti captures well the vagaries of childhood: the shifting alliances, the casual betrayals and the mix of helplessness and earnest audacity with which children confront adult situations. Nine-year-old Michele Amitrano lives with his little sister, devoted mother and distant father in a rural Italian hamlet consisting of five dilapidated houses. In the sweltering summer of 1978, he and a group of his friends strike out on their bikes across the barren, scorched hills. While exploring an abandoned house, Michele discovers what he believes to be the dead body of a boy his own age. He cannot bring himself to tell his friends. When he tries to tell his father, the elder Amitrano brushes him off. Drawn back to the site, Michele discovers that the boy is not dead, but weak, disoriented and unable to account for his presence there. Michele brings the boy food and water and slowly learns more about him. The boy's story-which includes kidnapping and ransom-are too much for a nine-year-old to fathom and involve virtually every adult in the tiny community. Yet Michele decides that he must do something to help the boy. Part mystery, part morality play, the novel is written in simple, spare prose. The characters, particularly that of Michele, spring to life, and the story builds to a heart-stopping climax. Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget. (Feb.) Forecast: This novel was a bestseller in Italy, and while that doesn't usually translate into U.S. sales, Ammaniti's masterful use of suspense should help win him an American following. Copyright 2002 Cahners Business Information. 'Niccolo Ammaniti is the best novelist of his generation.' Il Giornale 'Ammaniti, one of the most admired figures on the Italian fiction scene...uses short sentences like the cracks of a whip and sharp paragraphs to make our hearts race and carry us to the edge of the abyss.' ABC, Spain 'Ammaniti is a born story-teller.' L'Unita 'Readers will find this accomplished work hard to put down and even harder to forget.' Publishers Weekly 'A tense, breathless book, written with self-confidence and vitality.' La Stampa 'Readable in one breath...moving, impressive, amazing. It reminds you of Italo Calvino, but a Calvino warmed by a humanity that is not afraid to roll around in the mud.' Panorama 'Confirms his extraordinary narrative talent, over which he superimposes an atmosphere of horror and marvel.' (Le Monde.)

Australia Australian Academy of Science 1981 0858470950 / 9780858470958 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
xvi + 143 pages. Research into lead and the Australian health environment brought some unexpected answers: Some evidence suggested lead is added in some way to food and beverages during processing, some children ingest lead from dust or dirt, from lead paint on old houses, lead toys or dust on clothes of family members who work in the lead industry - Australia IS one ‘of the world's largest producers of lead. There is, however, no clear-cut level of lead concentration in blood above which adverse effects are observed. While the researchers said their findings on humans did not give rise to grave concern, their conclusion was that certain limited populations are at risk and require identification. Lead from motor exhausts does not produce signs and symptoms of clinical lead poisoning. But, reports from overseas and Australia suggest adverse effects from this may be less obvious, especially on the mental and behavioural developments of children.

USA Alba House 2002 0818909188 / 9780818909184 1st Edition Soft Cover Good 8vo 
221 indexed pages.The authors show convincingly that a specific syndrome develops when a person has been deprived of affirming love. Analytic or solely cognitive or behavioral therapies do not bring lasting healing, or are of no avail in these unaffirmed persons, since they have never repressed their feelings. Anti-depressants, shock therapy, or other therapeutic interventions often only worsen their suffering. What the unaffirmed person needs is affirmation therapy, which entails far more than simply giving "T.L.C." Rather, this therapy involves the healing of the whole person u8212 body, mind and spirit. The discovery of this well-defined syndrome of emotional deprivation disorder is most important. In our permissive, rarely repressing society, the number of patients who respond well to classical psychoanalysis is steadily declining. The number of unaffirmed persons, however, is increasing at an alarming rate. Unaffirmed parents rear unaffirmed children, causing symptoms such as depression, anxiety, feelings of uncertainty, inferiority, and worthlessness bringing some even to the point of suicide. Others "fight back through their futile efforts at self-affirmation. Recognizing emotional deprivation disorder is the first step in correcting, through affirmation, many grave individual and global ills. Authentic affirmation brings about peace, self-confidence and joy.
