The Beast Within

  • Genre : Fiction
  • La Bete humaine (1890), the seventeenth novel in the Rougon-Macquart series, is one of Zola's most violent and explicit works. On one level a tale of murder, passion, and possession, it is also a compassionate study of individuals derailed by atavistic forces beyond their control. Zola considered this his 'most finely worked' novel, and in it he powerfully evokes life at the end of the Second Empire in France, where society seemed to be hurtling into the future like the new locomotives and railways it was building. While expressing the hope that human nature evolves through education and gradually frees itself of the burden of inherited evil, he is constantly reminding us that under the veneer of technological progress there remains, always, the beast within.

  • Genre : Psychology
  • Praise for the first edition: "...a brave and fascinating exploration of an area that has so far been rather neglected by both historical and literary critics. The Beast Within provides extremely valuable information on the legal and cultural background of the human-animal relationship..." -- Studies in the Age of Chaucer This important book offers a unique exploration of the use of and attitude towards animals from the 4th to the 14th centuries. The Beast Within explores the varying roles of animals as property, food and sexual objects, and the complex relationship that this created with the people and world around them. Joyce E. Salisbury takes an interdisciplinary approach to the subject, weaving a historical narrative that includes economic, legal, theological, literary and artistic sources. The book shows how by the end of the Middle Ages the lines between humans and animals had blurred completely, making us recognise the beast that lay within us all. This new edition has been brought right up to date with current scholarship, and includes a brand new chapter on animals on trial and animals as human companions, as well as expanded and updated discussions on fables and saints, and a new section on âe~bestial humansâe(tm). This important and provocative book remains a key work on the historical study of animals, as well as in the field of environmental history more generally, and also provides crucial context to ongoing debates on animal rights and the environment.

  • The pack’s roots are buried beneath the dunes... Ama Chilton is the matriarch of the Wharton wolves: unfathomably old and impossibly strong. But, she wasn’t always Angus’ packrat granny with a penchant for muumuus. After the bloody end of both World War II and her relationship, Ama Chilton abandons the Big Apple in search of what she’s never had: a wolfpack, a family. Wharton—and the Cove Motel—was just supposed to be a rest stop on her journey south. That is, until she meets Rafe, a handsome Alpha. Rafe has just returned from the Pacific Theater, and is haunted by what he’s seen—what he’s done. He’s surly and rakish, but he offers her a job, and a pack to run with after dark. As their bickering relationship blossoms into a passionate love affair, Ama thinks she may have finally found a place to call home. But, Wharton isn’t just the quintessential vacation town. A series of grisly murders rocks the small community, threatening to expose the whole pack. Everyone is a suspect. And, unfortunately for Ama, her past has no intention of staying buried, either.

  • Foreword by Stephen Fry Controversy and confusion surround personality disorder (PD). Long dismissed as impossible to treat, PD has become a catch-all for various conditions, abounding with negative stereotypes and incorrect information. Now, revised and simpler classifications devised for the World Health Organization (WHO) should make diagnosis and treatment more straightforward. This book, by Professor Peter Tyrer, chair of the advisory body for the WHO, presents new ways of looking at personality. Taming the Beast Within explores the strengths as well as the difficulties of personality, so that all can come to an informed and tolerant understanding of PD. Topics include: what personality is `normal? and `abnormal? personalities how mental illness differs from personality disorder politics and personality the roots of disturbance types of disorder, including borderline personality disorder helping yourself and others nidotherapy and other approaches drug treatments Professor Peter Tyrer says, `I hope this book will help people with PD, their families and friends, and everyone involved in managing this very common condition. Using our personality strengths, and accepting that some difficulties with others may be self-generated, are the key to understanding. The title of this book can then be changed ? no longer a beast within, just a pussy cat!?

  • Nowadays, pretty much anyone with a computer and a working copy of Photoshop can call themselves an artist. That's very nice, but compared to one of the grand masters of fantasy art, they might as well be fiddling with an Etch-A-Sketch! Ken Barr is old-school masterful, and defines what it is to create whole new worlds of wonder. His storied career is filled with outstanding movie and television projects, science fiction and fantasy book covers, and many iconic images from the glory days of Marvel Comics. Long before the emergence of such superstar painters as Alex Ross and Joe Jusko, Ken Barr was blazing a trail of acrylic glory, giving fanboys a clear picture of what their heroes would look like in the real world. For the first time ever, a massive collection of Ken's favourite pieces have been assembled for this personal showcase. If you appreciate the intense quality and power this man brings to his work, or just have a fond memory of seeing your favourite character brought to life for the first time, then this book will be a pure pleasure!

And they feed off of human souls. When her village was attacked, Alys was spared and sent to live in a neighboring village. There the devout people created a strict world where fear of the soul eaters—and of the Beast they believe guides them—rule village life. But the Beast is not what they think he is. And neither is Alys. Inside, Alys feels connected to the soul eaters, and maybe even to the Beast itself. As she grows from a child to a teenager, she longs for the freedom of the forest. And she has a gift she can tell no one, for fear they will call her a witch. When disaster strikes, Alys finds herself on a journey to heal herself and her world. A journey that will take her through the darkest parts of the forest, where danger threatens her from the outside—and from within her own heart and soul.
