Shakespeare the Sadist / Bremen Coffee / My Foot My Tutor / Stallerhof, Bauer, Wolfgang; Fassbinder, Rainer Werner; Handke, Peter; Kroetz, Franz Xaver
2 Bauer, Wolfgang; Fassbinder, Rainer Werner; Handke, Peter; Kroetz, Franz Xaver Shakespeare the Sadist / Bremen Coffee / My Foot My Tutor / Stallerhof
U. K. Eyre Methuen 1977 0413343901 / 9780413343901 1st Edition Glossy Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
96 pages. These plays by the four leading young German playwrights offer the best proof of the much-vaunted ‘theatrical renaissance’ in 1970s Germany. "Shakespeare the Sadist" is a neat spoof on the sort of cultural pretentiousness that can rate Shakespeare on a par with pornographic movies. Fassbinder, known outside Germany mainly for his films, takes a 19th century real-life multi-murderess as his heroine in Bremen to tell a moral tale of doubtful morality. "My Foot My Tutor", a totally silent mime for two actors, demonstrates a refreshingly different aspect of his dramatic ability. Kroets special talent is for relentlessly naturalistic studies of ordinary people in depressed or deprived situations. "Stallerhof" is the best of these: its impact is truly disturbing. Inscription in the inside front cover.

The Complete Art of Breaking, Bryne, Richard

U.S.A. Ohara Pub 1984 0897500997 / 9780897500999 Reprint Glossy Soft Cover Good 12mo 
127 pages including b/w illustrations. Breaking is a martial arts technique that is used in competition, demonstration and testing. Breaking is an action where a martial artist uses a striking surface to break one or more objects using the skills honed in their art form. The striking surface is usually a hand or a foot, but may also be a fingertip, toe, head, elbow, knuckle, or knee. The most common object is a piece of wood, though it is also common to break bricks or cinder blocks. Breaking can be often seen in karate, taekwondo and pencak silat. Richard Byrne reveals his methods for developing speed, power, and precision in delivering decisive blows. The student is taught a progressive training program in the art of breaking, stressing both safety and technical correctness. Three essentials must be present in order for the break to occur: 1. The weakest point of the object to be broken must be hit. 2. The strike must be initiated from sufficient distance in order to gain enough speed to penetrate the object. 3. The proper part of the body must be used to avoid injury and to pinpoint the exact power/ focus area. Moderate wear.

Turning Suffering Inside Out, Cohen, Darlene
6 Cohen, Darlene Turning Suffering Inside Out
U.S.A. Shambhala Pubns 2002 1570628173 / 9781570628177 1st Edition Pictorial Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
250 pages. Darlene Cohen discovered the secret to finding happiness in the midst of debilitating pain. She shares her knowledge in her workshops and now in this book. Cohen, who has suffered from rheumatoid arthritis for 18 years, was hobbling painfully to her local Zen centre one day, when she made a discovery that changed her life: if she focused on the foot that was in the air rather than the one that was hitting the pavement, her stamina increased enormously. It was the beginning of a completely different approach to the crippling pain that had beset her for so long. As she demonstrates here, this approach can be expanded to all types of pain: physical, psychological, and spiritual. Cohen - a certified massage and movement therapist and Zen teacher - proposes a radically liberating alternative to the usual desperate search for pain relief: paradoxically, she says, release from suffering lies in paying closer attention to it. When we keep pain at bay, we keep pleasure at bay, too. The two are interdependent, and our ability to experience each is totally dependent on our understanding of the other. Darlene Cohen is a Zen teacher who counsels chronic pain clients and gives arthritis workshops, classes, lectures, and pain seminars in private practice and at medical facilities and meditation centers throughout the San Francisco Bay Area, as well as Spokane, Washington, and Evanston, Illinois. She is author of "Arthritis: Stop Suffering, Start Moving--Everyday Exercises for Body and Mind. "

U.S.A. Oxford University Press 2013 0199919887 / 9780199919888 1st Edition Soft Cover Very Good 12mo 
231 indexed pages. Understanding China's role in the world has become one of the crucial intellectual challenges of the 21st century. Recognizing the interpenetrated nature of the domestic and international spheres, this book uncovers some of the key interactions between the global and domestic forces that determine China's external behavior. The first section of the book concentrates on the role of ideas. It examines Chinese conceptions, at both the elite and mass levels, of the country's status and role in global politics, and how these conceptions can influence and frame policies. The second section provides evidence of Chinese societal involvement in transnational processes that are simultaneously transforming China and other parts of the world, often in unintended ways. The third section assesses the impact of globalization on China in issue areas that are central to global order, and outlines the domestic responses-from resistance to embrace-that it generates. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach involving scholars in international relations, history, social anthropology, and area studies, this book offers a sophisticated understanding of Chinese thought and behavior and illustrates the impact that China's re-emergence is having on 21st century global order.

vi + 262 indebliographyxed pages including colour illustrations and bibliography. Whether you would like to know the name of the snake that just frightened the living daylights out of you, or are simply trying to estimate the number of types of bird on a lake, this book is a valuable aid. Its authors have"distilled their impressively deep knowledge and love of their work into each page of this field guide. This book helps the reader identify many of the frog, reptile, fish, bird and invertebrate species to be found in the high country of south-eastern Australia, with the help of colour photographs and descriptions of each species. The creatures‘ biology, diet, habitat, distribution, abundance and conservation status are all described. The authors also provide some references for further reading. The wealth of detail in this guide makes its subjects intriguing to the reader. Delving into the book and learning about each animal - how a blackfish lays and fans its eggs, or why lizards shuffle from foot to foot - enriches the reader's understanding of the complex freshwater environment. One of the beauties of the book is that as the reader gains more knowledge, more questions spring forth: How does that frog change colour? Why do some snakes lay eggs while others give birth to live young? How can turtles become dormant? As Australia develops, many rivers are under intense pressure to provide more and more water, but there's only so much rainfall. Therefore, unfortunately, the future is not bright for many of the animals that depend on healthy rivers and wetlands to live. For instance, eight species of frogs vanished completely in Australia in the decade between 1980 and 1990. Contents: Freshwater habitats of the Southern Tablelands and High Country; Threatened freshwater animals of the Southern Tablelands and High Country; Fish; Invertebrates; Mammals; Birds; Reptiles; Frogs.
