“Build a wall about your heart.” Riordan Wollstonecraft labors under the heavy burden of his forebears. For generations, a curse has followed the dashing young men of his family, guaranteeing the women they love an untimely death. The youngest grandson of the Earl of Wollstonecraft Hall, charismatic Riordan is quietly resigned to his fate, an educator who devotes his life to good works, and ignores any longing for something more . . . Widowed and penniless, Lady Sabrina Lakeside is desperate to avoid a second forced betrothal—this time to an aged marquess. Her chance encounter with Riordan leads her to an impulsive offer: a temporary marriage of convenience that could benefit them both. His agreement is as surprising as it is welcome. Before long, Riordan’s keen intellect and kind words have Sabrina rethinking her plans of a union in name only. But her new husband is holding something back. Will giving in to their tantalizing passion lead her only to further heartache . . . or could it be the first step toward healing them both? “Karyn Gerrard writes very enjoyable, richly textured historical romances.” —Kate Pearce, New York Times and USA Today bestselling author

The phenomenon of bankonka – ‘postponement of marriage’ – is increasingly reported in contemporary Japanese media, clearly illustrating the changing patterns of modern lifestyles and attitudes towards marriage, personal obligation and ambition. This is the first book in recent years to explore the contemporary state of marriage in Japanese society. Setting out the different perceptions and expectations of marriage in today’s Japan, the book discusses how economic issues and the family impact on marital behaviour. Contrary to the views of some feminists that young women have no interest in improving their status and position, this book argues that, by delaying marriage and childrearing, young women can be seen as ‘rebels’ challenging Japanese patriarchal society. Unlike many other studies, it gives equal attention to male gender roles and masculinity, exploring what constitutes being a ‘real man’ in Japan – through the analysis of mainstream and non-mainstream conceptions of masculinity that co-exist in contemporary Japan, and considers the implications of such different roles for the institution of marriage. It investigates the roles of wife and mother, articulating why the strict division of labour defining men as breadwinners and women as homemakers became popular. Moreover, it describes the changing character of courtship relationships, explaining why the norm has shifted from arranged marriages pre-1945 to love marriages after that period. Finally, it puts the Japanese experience into cross-cultural, international context with a series of comparisons with marriage elsewhere both in Asia – including in Korea and Hong Kong – and in western countries such as France, Sweden, Italy and the United States.

This issue of Psychoanalytic Inquiry follows a design that has achieved increasing popularity in today's pluralistic world of psychoanalytic theory and practice. Providing a case presentation that incorporates detailed process noted along with a number of discussions of that case taken from divergent theoretical perspectives that appeals to the clinican operating in a postmodern setting. By proposing alternative ideas to the reader, the reader is afforded an opportunity to conceptualize from his or her own perspective the approach most conducive to good analytic work for the particular patient he or she has envisioned from reading the material presented. Or the reader may discover that alternative views suggested in the discussions may be integrated, establishing a more textured, more complex vision of the analytic pair at work together, a process facilitated through application of a systems sensibility. The abiding lesson - that there is no one good way to do our work but, on the other hand, that not all ways are equally good - is put forward persuasively in this format.

Over the course of the last four decades, Robert Cialdini's work has helped spark an intellectual revolution in which social psychological ideas have become increasingly influential. The concepts presented in his book, Influence: The Psychology of Persuasion, have spread well beyond the geographic boundaries of North America and beyond the field of academic social psychology into the areas of business, health, and politics. In this book, leading authors, who represent many different countries and disciplines, explore new developments and the widespread impact of Cialdini's work in research areas ranging from persuasion strategy and social engineering to help-seeking and decision-making. Among the many topics covered, the authors discuss how people underestimate the influence of others, how a former computer hacker used social engineering to gain access to highly confidential computer codes, and how biology and evolution figure into the principles of influence. The authors break new ground in the study of influence.

Selten ist ein Buch so viel in den Medien besprochen worden wie dieses: Darf jemand das, dem Vergewaltiger vergeben - und warum tut Thordis Elva das öffentlich? Warum räumt sie Tom Stranger seitenlang Raum ein in ihrem authentischen Schicksalsbericht - und welche Erkenntnisse hat ein Täter beizutragen? Ein tief berührendes Buch, in dem sich die beiden, Elva und Stranger, mit wichtigen Fragen auseinandersetzen: mit der Schuld, dem Vertrauen und der Möglichkeit der Vergebung -, aber auch mit ihrem eigenen Erleben und den lebenslangen Folgen einer entsetzlichen Tat.. Die Isländerin Thordis Elva ist 16, als sie von ihrem Freund vergewaltigt wird. Nach einer Party nutzt Tom, der australische Austauschschüler, ihre Wehrlosigkeit aus und missbraucht sie stundenlang. Danach ist für Thordis wie auch für Tom nichts mehr wie zuvor. Beide versuchen auf ihre Weise, das Geschehen zu verarbeiten – vergeblich. Bis Thordis Jahre später mit Tom Kontakt aufnimmt. Sie schlägt ihm ein Treffen vor, in Kapstadt, auf halber Strecke zwischen Reykjavik und Sydney. Ihr Ziel: Sie will Tom die Tat vergeben und so endlich die Opferrolle ablegen. Auch Tom hat seine Sicht der Dinge zu erzählen. Dieser ehrliche und authentische Bericht einer emotional riskanten Begegnung spricht Frauen und Männer an - denn Vergewaltigung in der Partnerschaft ist ein heiß diskutiertes Debattenthema. Auf einzigartige Weise schildern die vielfach ausgezeichneten Autorin und Journalistin Thordis Elva, die sich für Gewaltprävention einsetzt, und Tom Stranger, der jahrelang als Sozialarbeiter tätig war, was damals zwischen ihnen wirklich passiert ist. Und wie es ihnen nach langen Jahren im Austausch gelingt, den Mut zu fassen, sich den Tatsachen zu stellen und das Unfassbare zu verarbeiten. Thordis Elva: „Nur so konnte ich mir beweisen, dass Gewalt keine Macht über mich hat. Nicht damals, nicht heute: nie.“
