  • Waterstones On Freud’s “Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through”

    Price: £29.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: In On Freud's 'Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through" international contributors from a range of psychoanalytic backgrounds reflect on this key 1914 paper. Each chapter considers an aspect of Freud's original work, addressing both the theoretical and clinical dimensions of the paper and incorporating contemporary perspectives. Bringing out all three aspects of the paper's title, the contributors consider the issues raised by the so-called change in psychoanalytic paradigm, from the classic central concern of remembering to a clinical experience which prioritises enactment and repetition. The reflections on this important paper demonstrate how it goes beyond technique to open new vistas on the conception of psychoanalysis as a whole. On Freud's 'Remembering, Repeating and Working-Through" will be essential reading for psychoanalysts and psychoanalytic psychotherapists in practice and in training. It will also be of interest to readers seeking a deeper understanding of current Freudian thinking.

    Description: Liverpool was founded by King John in 1207 as a military base on the River Mersey. From his new town the king planned to invade Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and the Isle of Man. Heavily fortified, and defended by a great castle and a formidable tower, Liverpool was besieged and changed hands three times during the English Civil War. Volunteer troops from the town later helped defend the region against the Jacobite Rebellions of 1715 and 1745, and was then the scene of grisly executions of Scots rebels. In the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries Liverpool developed into one of the most significant ports in the British Empire. Defences were built to fend off attacks during the American Revolutionary War and the Napoleonic Wars. Liverpool also secretly built ships for the Confederate Navy during the American Civil War, the last acts of which were the surrender of an American warship on the Mersey and of its commander in Liverpool Town Hall. The Kings Liverpool Regiment was one of a number of local volunteer forces that were core to the culture and economy, particularly of working-class Liverpool. In the First World War many local young men joined the famous 'Liverpool Pals' regiments and the Territorials. In the Second World War Liverpool played a crucial role in the Battle of the Atlantic, which was directed and won in secret bunkers under the city centre. These still exist and are open to the public - telling the story of how Liverpool defended the North Atlantic convoys that kept the country alive during the war. The most heavily bombed city in Britain outside London, Liverpool was devastated by the end of the conflict, but has now rebuilt itself and reclaimed its role as a world-class city. However, Liverpool still sends its sons and daughters to military and naval service around the world, in defence and on behalf of Great Britain. Join local author Ken Pye as he guides the reader through the military history of this remarkable city. Waterstones Liverpool's Military Heritage - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk

  • Waterstones Liverpool in the 1950s

    Price: £14.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: The 1950s was a time of great change in Britain - especially after the immediate post-war austerity years. In Liverpool, massive slum clearance programmes started to change the face of the city, television began to infiltrate people's lives, and the consumer society was born, along with the teenager, Teddy Boys and rock 'n' roll. In the city centre, war-damaged buildings were being repaired and new developments were springing up. Richly illustrated with 200 archive photographs, Liverpool in the 1950s recalls the unique fashions of the decade, the changing modes of transport, the shops and businesses that were around at this time, as well as the developments that took place in the city during this exciting decade, when anything seemed possible. Accompanied by detailed captions, this book is sure to awaken memories for all who remember Liverpool in the 1950s.

  • Waterstones The The Story of Liverpool

    Price: £16.99

    Brand: Waterstones

     

    Description: There is something special about Liverpool. From its earliest beginnings it has always been associated with the ups and downs, the triumphs and tribulations of the rest of the country, acting like a mirror to the events that have shaped the country we now think of as Great Britain. As one of the major ports in the land, Liverpool has witnessed the comings and goings of people from all corners of the world who, over the centuries, have constituted the melting pot of nations which has given rise to what we now think of as a typical scouser. In The Story of Liverpool the author has tried not to present the reader with facts and figures, diagrams and statistics that usually form an integral part of an academic history, but to concentrate on the story or romance of Liverpool's evolution over the years. Uppermost in his mind was an attempt to bring history to life, to give it a plot and characters and to convey to the reader and idea of what it would have felt like to be alive at various stages in the city's evolution. The first popular history of Liverpool for many years, this is a comprehensive and revealing account of the city's development from it's earliest days to modern times. Lively, readable and well-illustrated, this is a tremendous book for locals and visitors alike to enjoy. Waterstones The The Story of Liverpool - shop the best deal online on thebookbug.co.uk
