Scream - chilling adventures in the science of fear by Kerr, Margee.

Scream - chilling adventures in the science of fear

"For as long as we've gathered by campfires to tell ghost stories, humans have always loved a good scare. From the splatter flicks of the 70s, to Japan's obsession with drowned girls, to creepy modern experiences like the overnight ghost hunt at the Trans-Allegheny Lunatic Asylum, the horror industry has thrived across time and cultures. Our obsession with getting scared is obvious to anyone who visits ScareHouse, a haunted house in Pittsburgh that is annually ranked among the scariest in the co

Sex and punishment - four thousand years of judging desire by Berkowitz, Eric.

Sex and punishment - four thousand years of judging desire

The 'raging' frenzy of the sex drive, to use Plato's phrase, has always defied control. However, that is not to say that every civilization has not tried, using its most powerful weapon: the Law. At any given point in history some forms of sex were condoned while others were punished mercilessly. Jump back or forward a century or two or cross a border and the harmless fun of one society becomes the gravest crime in another. This work tells the story of the struggle to regulate the most powerful

Sex outside the lines - authentic sexuality in a sexually dysfunctional culture

"Is Your Sex Life "Normal"? Boy meets girl. The connection is electric. They fall in love, marry and have amazing sex. Soon there are children, and then grandchildren. They grow old, loving one another for the rest of their lives. What's wrong with this picture? Absolutely nothing, if you are one of the relatively small group of people whose lives work out this way. What's wrong is that we've defined this as "normal," which makes most of us "abnormal." In Sex Outside the Lines, Dr. Chris Donaghu

Small-scale grain raising by Logsdon, Gene.

Small-scale grain raising

More and more people are seeking out locally grown foods, including those they grow themselves, yet one of the main stumbling blocks has been finding local sources for grains. In this revised edition of his classic book Gene Logsdon proves that anyone who has access to a large garden or small farm can (and should) think outside the agribusiness box and learn to grow healthy whole grains or beans - the base of our culinary food pyramid - alongside their fruits and vegetables. Logsdon succinctly
