Gibler is something of a revelation, having been living and writing from Mexico for a range of progressive publications only since 2006, but providing reflections, insights, and a level of understanding worthy of a veteran correspondent. (Latin American Review of Books) Combining on-the-ground reporting and in-depth discussions with people on the frontlines of Mexico's drug war, To Die in Mexico tells behind-the-scenes stories that address the causes and consequences of Mexico's multibillion dollar drug trafficking business. John Gibler looks beyond the myths that pervade government and media portrayals of the unprecedented wave of violence now pushing Mexico to the breaking point. 1. Language: English.

Before, During, and After Stonewall: 100 Years of Heroes and History The Right Side of History tells the 100-year history of queer activism in a series of revealing close-ups, first-person accounts, and intimate snapshots of LGBT pioneers and radicals. This diverse cast stretches from the Edwardian period to today, including first-person accounts of the key protest that is at the heart of the 2015 movie Stonewall. The book shows how LGBT folk have always been in the forefront of progressive social evolution in the United States. It references heroes like Abraham Lincoln, Eleanor Roosevelt, Bayard Rustin, Harvey Milk, and Edie Windsor. Equally, the book honors names that aren’t in history books, from participants in the Names Project, a national phenomenon memorializing 94,000 AIDS victims, to underground artists and writers. 1.

More Stories for English is a collection selected with a pedagogical interest in mind... for new English speakers to listen to in a both interesting and progressive way. It follows Stories for English for developing English speakers. Most learners of English never make it to books or even stories. They either use or don't use their command of English to some extent in the course of their jobs and leave it at that. All the same, teachers regularly get requests for books from their students, and here is a good start. Training people over the years has shown me the need for a carefully chosen selection that would motivate - while encouraging - learners to take their command of English beyond this and keep learning while enjoying the stories the way they did with songs and music in Singin' to English. These stories are for students and trainers, teachers and learners alike, and more and more are being recorded. The stories featured here offer readability and listenability from a fairly early level up. They start with a short, easy repetitive pattern and evolve and evolve into more challenging, longer stories. Listeners will step up their skills without really pulling and stretching. 1.

An informed biography on a leading intellectual and educational pioneer of the early 20th century. An icon of philosophy and psychology during the first half of the 20th century, Dewey is known as the father of functional psychology and a pivotal figure of the pragmatist movement, as well as the progressive movement in education. This concise and critical look at Dewey's work examines his unique take on art and religion, his naturalistic approach to science and psychology, and his contribution to political thought. The author of over 40 books across a range of topics, Dewey’s legacy remains not only through the works he left us, but also through the institutions he founded, which include The New School for Social Research in New York City and the University of Chicago Laboratory Schools. Hildebrand's biography brilliantly interweaves the different strands of Dewey's thought, and examines the legacy he left behind. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Christine Williams.

Following the simple exercises of this audiobook enables your body to achieve progressive muscle relaxation. Full relaxation like this goes further than the physical level, it also means wellbeing for the soul. The difficulties of modern everyday life make it more and more difficult to keep your equanimity. Being accessible around the clock is often required by your boss or business partners. This kind of omnipresent stress in modern life continues even into the weekend, a break which everyone needs and deserves. We are tossed about by the waves of chance until we come to a dead end. This is an experience familiar to a factory worker as well as to a manager. Far too often we do not see how important it is for everyone to have that oasis of repose and relaxation they yearn for. And there is no other way to counteract a common malady like burnout without deep and mindful relaxation. The mental skills trainer and numerologist Carola Riss-Tafilaj has made a name for herself as the author of several self-help books and guidebooks on how to manage everyday life. In this audiobook she makes Jacobson's therapy accessible to everyone, which he began to develop at Harvard University as early as 1908. Today, especially, it has become very important to be able to relax deliberately and mindfully, and thereby to steel yourself against your everyday problems. With these easy exercises for deep holistic relaxation the author demonstrates effective ways of achieving progressive muscle relaxation. By alternating the tension and relaxation of each specific muscle group, you go through all the muscles of your body, and this will enable you to experience a whole new body awareness in a surprisingly simple and quick manner. You will learn to become sensitive to each individual muscle fiber. When body and soul are in harmony, we are capable of achieving great things. Your body will thank you for this experience. 1.
