DESCRIPTION BOOK:

GENDER EUPHORIA: a powerful feeling of happiness experienced as a result of moving away from one’s birth-assigned gender. So often the stories shared by trans people about their transition centre on gender dysphoria: a feeling of deep discomfort with their birth-assigned gender, and a powerful catalyst for coming out or transitioning. But for many non-cisgender people, it’s gender euphoria which pushes forward their transition: the joy the first time a parent calls them by their new chosen name, the first time they have the confidence to cut their hair short, the first time they truly embrace themself. In this groundbreaking anthology, nineteen trans, non-binary, agender, gender-fluid and intersex writers share their experiences of gender euphoria: an agender dominatrix being called ‘Daddy’, an Arab trans man getting his first tattoos, a trans woman embracing her inner fighter. What they have in common are their feelings of elation, pride, confidence, freedom and ecstasy as a direct result of coming out as non-cisgender, and how coming to terms with their gender has brought unimaginable joy into their lives.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

The world-renowned economist offers "dourly irreverent analyses of financial debacle from the tulip craze of the seventeenth century to the recent plague of junk bonds." —The Atlantic. With incomparable wisdom, skill, and wit, world-renowned economist John Kenneth Galbraith traces the history of the major speculative episodes in our economy over the last three centuries. Exposing the ways in which normally sane people display reckless behavior in pursuit of profit, Galbraith asserts that our "notoriously short" financial memory is what creates the conditions for market collapse. By recognizing these signs and understanding what causes them we can guard against future recessions and have a better hold on our country's (and our own) financial destiny.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Very few people have not at some point in their lives believed themselves or their loved ones to be reasonably healthy when, in "reality", sickness was encroaching or never went away. Health has been deceiving us for thousands of years, but rarely have we entirely dispensed with it as a concept. This book sets out to establish why and how that might be. The first of its kind, this longue durée historical study explores some of the ways in which people in western societies and cultures have come to believe that they, or other people, have perceived or misperceived health, well-being and euphoria—a word which, before the twentieth century, usually named the experience of health. This book draws from a number of areas of historical research, including the histories of convalescence, addiction, madness and Sigmund Freud’s interest in Euphorie in his pre-psychoanalytical period.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

A bond between a young girl and an abandoned baby encompasses eastern and western Canada, from 1890s Toronto to the Regina Cyclone. A historical novel that chronicles the life of Gladdie McConnell and her seemingly mysterious connection to Orillia Cooper. The importance of sex, of love, of mothers and daughters, all are themes running through this novel. The nurturing and love from our mothers ( be it traditional or not) is paramount to real survival. The opening prologue, set in Toronto in the late 1880’s, connects Gladdie to Orillia in a way she didn’t think possible. When Gladdie, a Toronto boarding house servant, makes a promise to an abandoned day-old child in 1891, she means to keep it. A host of obstacles, including her station in life, a determined adoptive family and half a continent of distance, isn’t going to stop her. Schooled in adversity, and red-headed – like all the best indomitable heroines – she knows how to persevere. The twists and turns of Gladdie’s helpmate life lead her to the summer of 1912, when twenty-year-old Orillia Cooper wakes up from surgery after being struck down by the Regina Cyclone. It has taken a tornado – and a devastating injury to Orillia – to bring them back together, because Orillia is that same child. However, she has no idea who Gladdie McConnell really is; she’s just a friend when she is in need of one. An engaging cast of characters inhabits Euphoria, bringing both eastern and western Canada at the turn of the 20th century to vivid life. This beguiling novel, with its quiet intelligence, wit and comedy of errors, is about the stories we want to believe in, and more importantly, about the value that may exist in wishes that don’t come true.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Happiness today is not just a possibility or an option but a requirement and a duty. To fail to be happy is to fail utterly. Happiness has become a religion--one whose smiley-faced god looks down in rebuke upon everyone who hasn't yet attained the blessed state of perpetual euphoria. How has a liberating principle of the Enlightenment--the right to pursue happiness--become the unavoidable and burdensome responsibility to be happy? How did we become unhappy about not being happy--and what might we do to escape this predicament? In Perpetual Euphoria, Pascal Bruckner takes up these questions with all his unconventional wit, force, and brilliance, arguing that we might be happier if we simply abandoned our mad pursuit of happiness. Gripped by the twin illusions that we are responsible for being happy or unhappy and that happiness can be produced by effort, many of us are now martyring ourselves--sacrificing our time, fortunes, health, and peace of mind--in the hope of entering an earthly paradise. Much better, Bruckner argues, would be to accept that happiness is an unbidden and fragile gift that arrives only by grace and luck. A stimulating and entertaining meditation on the unhappiness at the heart of the modern cult of happiness, Perpetual Euphoria is a book for everyone who has ever bristled at the command to "be happy."

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Insane Euphoria Speaks: Diary of a Late Pregnancy is one woman's account of her third pregnancy from May 1971 through March 1972. When she first suspects that she is pregnant, she wonders what her husband's reaction might be. Should she or should she not have a third child? In her deepest self, she feels that she would like the profound natural happiness of being pregnant once again. At the same time, she wonders if she and her husband have both the emotional and financial resources to provide for a third child. The narrator tries to balance the anticipated euphoria of the experience against the very substantial demands of a third child. This will be the last pregnancy because she will be thirty-nine years old in two months. The positive side is that she is emotionally and psychologically ready for the experience and expects that she can make it into something more wonderful than her first two pregnancies had been. She served her motherhood apprenticeship with her first two children, and the third time around, she can appreciate her hard-won expertise. She realizes that she will be able to enjoy a mastery of the motherhood experience akin to the professional mastery she enjoyed before motherhood. An added plus to the third pregnancy is that she will be able to keep a journal, something she wanted to do with her first two pregnancies but was never sufficiently in control to do so. Her decision to continue the pregnancy is supported by her husband's enormous happiness at the prospect of a third child. The narrator records both the resources and the limitations of her current situation. She wants the pregnancy to be a beautiful experience and contain all that her previous two pregnancies lacked. She feels she knows what to expect from the experience, and this makes a significant difference. She likes the house where she lives and is grateful for the view of the hill and field across the street from her living room window. This is her relaxing view, her contact with nature and the eternal. The limitations of her situation are the lack of any household or babysitting help and the resulting acute need for some private time to herself. Having been an independent professional woman before she had children, she finds being a full-time at-home mother and an economic dependent a limiting and, sometimes, demeaning experience. There are fluctuations in her relationship with her husband and negotiations about power and money in their everyday life. The relationship is tugged one way by his wanting her to go back to work and the other way by her wanting him to expand his professional practice. The narrator tries to keep anything from marring the enjoyment of her third and final pregnancy. She wants to experience all the pleasure possible. She finds this a time of psychic integration where the discordant elements of her personality are integrated and present more and deeper meaning than she had previously known. The baby moves for the first time, she witnesses her two-year-old learn to talk, and her three-year-old start nursery school. His family, her family, and their friends form a chorus in the background. She experiences increasing dreaminess while she enjoys keeping a journal and, at one point, rereading some of her earlier journals. In the end, it culminates in the birth of a beautiful healthy baby girl.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

This pivot describes the ups and downs of Norwegian High North politics since the end of the Cold War. It considers how political interest in the Arctic has been growing rapidly in the international community as states stake their claim to areas of the continental shelf in the Arctic Ocean, and focuses on Russia’s actions, as the Arctic state with the longest shoreline and the only one outside NATO. The author argues that among the Western countries, Norway has the most extensive experience in tackling Russia in the Arctic, and the neighbourhood with the Russian Bear invariably shapes foreign policy, notably in matters of security, and how foreign policy concerns are intertwined with economic motives, be that hopes of access to the big Russian market or to the oil and gas fields on the Russian Arctic shelf. To achieve the combined goal of security and business, the Norwegian Government has regularly orchestrated “Arctic waves” to direct the attention of local, national and international politicians and businesses to the alleged opportunities of the North. In this book, the author takes us through “the Great Barents Awakening” of the 1990s, “the Great High North Enchantment” of the early 2000s and recent years’ “Arctic wave” in Norwegian foreign policy.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Please note: This is a companion version & not the original book. Sample Book Insights: #1 The free-enterprise economy is prone to episodes of speculation. These involve bank notes, securities, real estate, art, and other assets or objects. The more obvious features of the speculative episode are clear to anyone open to understanding. #2 The mass psychology of the speculative mood is difficult to understand, but it is clear that it allows those who are affected by it to save themselves from disaster. The saved will be the exception to a very broad and binding rule. #3 The condemnation of those who express doubt or dissent is strong, and they are often called obsolete, incapable of grasping the new and rewarding circumstances, or even deeply suspect. #4 The euphoric episode is protected and sustained by the will of those who are involved, to justify the circumstances that are making them rich. And it is equally protected by the will to ignore, exorcise, or condemn those who express doubts.

DESCRIPTION BOOK:

Thirtysomething Cara Foster is, one might say, eco-anxious—perhaps even eco-neurotic. She eats out of dumpsters (not because she wants to but because it’s the right thing to do), does laundry as seldom as possible, takes navy showers every couple of days, and is reevaluating her boyfriend for killing a spider instead of saving a life. Cara has never met her six (soon to be seven) nephews and nieces because she doesn’t fly domestic (unless it’s an emergency) or international (ever). She longs for a carbon footprint so light you’d hardly know she exists. Then, during a mimosa-soaked Sunday brunch, she meets her boyfriend’s alluring mother, Millie, and Cara finds herself mesmerized. Millie represents everything Cara’s against: She eats meat, has cowhide rugs, drives a car the size of a small yacht, and blithely travels the world by boat, plane, and train—without any guilt whatsoever. In fact, Cara soon admits this may be why she finds herself so drawn to Millie. As they begin spending time together, getting pedicures and drinking sixteen-olive martinis, Cara becomes hooked on Millie and this new freedom from the harsh realities of life in the twenty-first century. Yet before long, Cara risks losing everything to be close to the mundane extravagance of Millie’s world—her career, her best friend, and her identity all hang in the balance as she struggles to disentangle from this intoxicating muse. Irreverent, witty, and provocative, My Days of Dark Green Euphoria is a satirical novel of how a life on the edge of eco-anxiety can spiral wildly out of control, as well as how promising and inspiring a commitment to saving our planet can be.

***NEW COVER, RE-EDITED, & BONUS MATERIAL***After a series of catastrophic misunderstandings and impulsively poor decision-making, Scarlett MacGregor finds herself once again torn between two loves, different as they may be. Lacking proper closure with their relationship, and accompanied by the overwhelming guilt for her role in his devastating downfall, Scarlett resolves to help Mason recover and reclaim his life as a budding rock star. However, now that he has finally claimed her as his, Ash Walker is bound and determined to keep her by his side, and he will go to any lengths necessary to do just that. Mason Templeton has hit rock bottom. He's in love with a girl whose heart and soul belong to another and he's partied his way off of an international music tour that was supposed to be his big break. Returning home for rehab, sounds like the worst possible way to start a new year, but when an unexpected friendship emerges, he begins to realize that maybe everything does happen for a reason. Euphoria is the third and final installment of Scarlett, Ash, and Mason's self-discovering journeys to understanding the meaning of true love--the kind that begs for complete surrender.
