Summary

“Here be monsters! This brilliant collection of gruesome small-town misdeeds . . . will have you running for the comfort and safety of the big city.” —Peter Houlahan, author of Norco ’80 
 
We’ve been told nothing bad happens in small towns. You can leave your doors unlocked, and your windows wide open. We picture peaceful hamlets with a strong sense of community, and everyone knows each other. But what if this wholesome idyllic image doesn’t always square with reality? Small towns might look and feel safe, but statistics show this isn’t really true. 
 
From the vicious murderers of the Clutter family to Ted Bundy and his small-town charm, criminals have always roamed rural America and towns worldwide. Featuring murder stories, criminal case studies, and more, The Best New True Crime Stories: Small Towns contains all-new accounts from writers of true crime, crime journalism, and crime fiction. And these entries are not based on a true story—they are true stories. Edited by acclaimed author and anthologist Mitzi Szereto, the stories in this volume span the globe. Discover how unsolved murders, kidnapping, shooting sprees, violent robbery, and other bad things can and do happen in small towns all over the world. 
 
“Mitzi Szereto has assembled a group of today’s brightest and best authors for this truly extraordinary anthology. Brilliant!” —Dan Zupansky, author and host of True Murder 
 
“Chills. Endless chills.” —Cup of Books 
 
“These well-researched, globe-trotting, bite-sized tales are perfect for a lazy summer afternoon?especially at a time when it’s much safer to travel through the pages of a book.” —Ellery Queen Mystery Magazine

    James Hillman is the father of Archetypal Psychology. This rare program focuses on Education, Imagination and Myth with James Hillman. Here is a transcribed excerpt: 
     
    "And it's very important for the teacher to allow these things to occur, to feel them, to experience them even to record them so that she or he feels comfortable with the strangeness of the imaginative world with the gods and the demons and the animals and the jungles and the territories that are the source of one's imaginative life. 
    Unless the teachers comfortable with that he or she will censor and repress or suppress the imaginative life of the pupil. It seems to me that everyone can be re-tread. ▪ We can all get a retread and you unlearn. 
    I mean, one of the basic things of learning is unlearning what you've learned, not just negative capability, but negative learning learning against what you've learned. 
    You have to learn the stuff and then you see through it and you unlearn it."

    New Deal or Raw Deal? - How...

    In this shocking and groundbreaking new book, economic historian Burton Folsom, Jr., exposes the idyllic legend of Franklin D. Roosevelt as a myth of epic proportions. With questionable moral character and a vendetta against the business elite, Roosevelt created New Deal programs marked by inconsistent planning, wasteful spending, and opportunity for political gain-ultimately elevating public opinion of his administration but falling flat in achieving the economic revitalization that America so desperately needed from the Great Depression. Folsom takes a critical, revisionist look at Roosevelt's presidency, his economic policies, and his personal life.Elected in 1932 on a buoyant tide of promises to balance the increasingly uncontrollable national budget and reduce the catastrophic unemployment rate, the charismatic thirty-second president not only neglected to pursue those goals, he made dramatic changes to federal programming that directly contradicted his campaign promises. Price fixing, court packing, regressive taxes, and patronism were all hidden inside the alphabet soup of his popular New Deal, putting a financial strain on the already suffering lower classes and discouraging the upper classes from taking business risks that potentially could have jostled national cash flow from dormancy. Many government programs that are widely used today have their seeds in the New Deal. Farm subsidies, minimum wage, and welfare, among others, all stifle economic growth-encouraging decreased productivity and exacerbating unemployment.Roosevelt's imperious approach to the presidency changed American politics forever, and as he manipulated public opinion, American citizens became unwitting accomplices to the stilted economic growth of the 1930s. More than sixty years after FDR died in office, we still struggle with the damaging repercussions of his legacy.

    The author recounts his discovery of a lost Arabian city in this “captivating story of [a] stupendous archeological achievement” (Kirkus). 
     
    No one thought that Ubar, the most fabled city of ancient Arabia, would ever be found, if it even existed. According to the Koran, the ancient trading outpost was sunk into the desert as punishment for the sins of its people. Over the centuries, many searched for the legendary “Atlantis of the Sands”—including Lawrence of Arabia—yet the city remained lost. Until now. 
     
    Documentary filmmaker and amateur archaeologist Nicholas Clapp first stumbled on the legend of Ubar in the 1980s while poring over historical manuscripts. Filled with overwhelming curiosity, Clapp led two expeditions to Arabia with a team that included space scientists and geologists. In The Road to Ubar, he chronicles the grand adventure that led to a historic discovery.

    This is a 3-book combination with the following titles: 
    Book 1: In this convenient guide, several ancient, famous philosophers will be covered, so you may get a better understanding of the ancestors who have shaped our ideas and theories before we were born. 
      
      
    Book 2: Stoicism is a concept that has been studied more and more lately. The philosophy that dates back all the way to Socrates has been significant in many people’s lives. So, today, we will expand on what stoicism is, where it originated from, and how you can use it in your life to become a better person and achieve more. 
      
    On top of that, we’ll discuss how the Golden Rule (do unto others what you would have them do unto you) applies and is directly related to the idea of stoicism. We’ll go over what is meant by “logos” and why so many businesspeople and entrepreneurs have studied stoicism to improve their responses and results to changes in the market and their negotiations. 
      
    Book 3: Skepticism is a philosophical movement that has been in existence for centuries. And even though some may call it old and outdated, studying this concept can bring enlightenment to the soul. Sometimes, being skeptical is erroneously connected to simply being negative. But this assumption is far from the truth.
