Martin Luther King’s 1965 address from Montgomery, Alabama, the center of much racial conflict at the time and the location of the well-publicized bus boycott a decade earlier, is often considered by historians to be the culmination of the civil rights era in American history. In his momentous speech, King declared that segregation was “on its deathbed” and that the movement had already achieved significant milestones. Although the civil rights movement had won many battles in the struggle for racial equality by the mid-1960s, including legislation to guarantee black voting rights and to desegregate public accommodations, the fight to implement the new laws was just starting. In reality, King’s speech in Montgomery represented a new beginning rather than a conclusion to the movement, a fact that King acknowledged in the address. After the Dream: Black and White Southerners since 1965 begins where many histories of the civil rights movement end, with King’s triumphant march from the iconic battleground of Selma to Montgomery. Timothy J. Minchin and John Salmond focus on events in the South following the passage of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the 1965 Voting Rights Act. After the Dream examines the social, economic, and political implications of these laws in the decades following their passage, discussing the empowerment of black southerners, white resistance, accommodation and acceptance, and the nation’s political will. The book also provides a fascinating history of the often-overlooked period of race relations during the presidential administrations of Ford, Carter, Reagan, and both George H. W. and George W. Bush. Ending with the election of President Barack Obama, this study will influence contemporary historiography on the civil rights movement.

The pursuit of happiness! We have different perceptions of what that means among ourselves, and within ourselves as we experience myriad events (joyous or otherwise) such as - activities, relationships, activities, learning, challenges, contentions, problems. Whether we automatically think of it or not, each of those events contributes (positively or negatively) to our mental, physical, psychological and spiritual development; for being happy is good, but being happy as we develop is satisfyingly sublime. This book, The Dream Channel is designed to itemize and explain various aspects of the twenty-four Tools of Living we all have in common, yet that we, as individuals, are constantly treating subjectively in agreement with our differing (sometimes unstable) needs, desires, emotions, and values. The Supreme Being has loaned us these tools, and, through His gift of dreams, urges us to utilize these taken-for granted tools so as to allow us the mental, physical, psychological, and spiritual development of sublime happiness. Here are 12 of the 24 primary tools, including examples of the associated auxiliary tools s that are utilized in dreams: Resources book, vehicle, money Space interior and exterior Senses sound, taste, touch, smell Illumination light, darkness, color Order clean, repair, tailor, reproduce Motion walk, ride, drive, fly, fall Vegetation soil, dust, lawn Climate heat, cold, thunder Communication thought, speech, gestures Intimacy sexual activity, pregnancy, marriage Anatomy people, hand, face, infant, health Garment wearing apparel, nakedness Yes, these tools (over 160) are used in dreams; dramas meant for one individual only private and personal dramas. Specifically, each dream molds and relates to matters of your life in harmony with your temperament, your intelligence, your frames of mind, your dispositions, your affections, your traits, your lifestyle, your foibles, your habits, your peculiarities, your tendencies - as well as to the same elements of others with whom you come in contact , or by whom you are affe

Although it is customary to credit Freud's self-analysis, it may be more accurate, Alexander Welsh argues, to say that psychoanalysis began when The Interpretation of Dreams was published in the last weeks of the nineteenth century. Only by going public with his theory--that dreams manifest hidden wishes--did Freud establish a position to defend and embark upon a career. That position and career have been among the most influential in this century. In August 1899, Freud wrote to Wilhelm Fliess of the dream book in terms reminiscent of Dante's Inferno. Beginning from a dark wood, this modern journey features "a concealed pass though which I lead the reader--my specimen dream with its peculiarities, details, indiscretions, bad jokes--and then suddenly the high ground and the view and the question, Which way do you wish to go now?" Physician that he is, Freud appoints himself guide rather than hero, yet the way "you" wish to go is very much his prescribed way. In Welsh's book, readers are invited on Freud's journey, to pause at each concealed pass in his seminal work and ask where the guide is taking them and why. Along the way, Welsh shows how Freud's arbitrary turnings are themselves wishful, intended to persuade by pleasing the reader and author alike; that his interest in secrets and his self-proclaimed modest ambition are products of their time; and that the book may best be read as a romance or serial comedy. "Some of the humor throughout," Welsh notes, "can only be understood as a particular kind of fine performance." Welsh offers the first critical overview of the argument in Freud's masterpiece and of the author who presents himself as guide.

THE LUCID DREAM MANIFESTO is a reprint of the original manuscript of: LUCID DREAMS, DREAMS AND SLEEP: THEORETICAL CONSTRUCTIONS published by the University of South Dakota Media Press, 1974. This thesis was one of the first books dedicated to exploring lucid dreams (dreams wherein you realize you are dreaming) within the larger context of dreams and sleep. A general and original theory of sleep and dreams is outlined as a context within which to understand lucid dreams as a natural extension of these mechanisms rather than an exceptional event experienced only by "gifted" individuals. From theory to praxis, the book offers practical experiments to train the novice in becoming aware in dreams. The original treatise was selected for Dick McLeester's WELCOME TO THE MAGIC THEATRE: A HANDBOOK FOR EXPLORING DREAMS, 1976, a reference book that THE VILLAGE VOICE called "one of the best introductions to the sleepy third of your life that we've ever seen."

Winner of the 2010 Sigourney Award! In Dreams That Turn Over a Page, the author discusses a particular type of dream that comes after a phase in analysis where integration has taken place. Accompanied by anxiety and fear, which seem surprising as the dream follows a phase of integrative work in the analysis, these dreams are in fact a mark of progression as they indicate a capacity to own anxiety. Quinodoz describes the important technical implications of this understanding, suggesting that it is essential to interpret to the patient that the anxiety indicates not a regression, but a shift in the opposite direction. In addition to the theory and discussion of the literature, he gives many clinical examples of such dreams from patients in psychoanalysis to illustrate the concepts of dreams that turn over a page. As Freud's classical theory of dreams does not by itself suffice to interpret or explain the formation of these particular dreams, Quinodoz invokes contemporary ideas to understand the underlying transformations which bring the 'return' of split-off parts of the self during the phases of integration. The author considers the reasons why dreams that mark this transition have a more powerful impact than others on both patient and analyst, and observes similarities between the clinical impact of such a dream and the aesthetic impact of a work of art.

Conflicting Identities and Multiple Masculinities takes as its focus the construction of masculinity in Western Europe from the early Middle Ages until the fifteenth century, crossing from pre-Christian Scandinavia across western Christendom. The essays consult a broad and representative cross section of sources including the work of theological, scholastic, and monastic writers, sagas, hagiography and memoirs, material culture, chronicles, exampla and vernacular literature, sumptuary legislation, and the records of ecclesiastical courts. The studies address questions of what constituted male identity, and male sexuality. How was masculinity constructed in different social groups? How did the secular and ecclesiastical ideals of masculinity reinforce each other or diverge? These essays address the topic of medieval men and, through a variety of theoretical, methodological, and disciplinary approaches, significantly extend our understanding of how, in the Middle Ages, masculinity and identity were conflicted and multifarious.

Cush to Mysterious Babylon: Africa and the Covenant People examines the histories of the African people and their continent, and how this has impacted and shaped world history. This deep exploration of the cultural and religious history of African societies supplements what the weekly sermon cannot fully cover. That is to say, Cush to Mysterious Babylon: Africa and the Covenant People looks into the history of religion and the influence of the African people upon it, and of course, the influence of religion upon the African continent. While it seems, at time, that society will go to extremes to prevent the success of a people, Cush to Mysterious Babylon: Africa and the Covenant People emphasizes that every ethnic group, and every individual, has a purpose and a place on Earth. Man's attempt to diminish cultural differences opposes God's plan. Cush to Mysterious Babylon: Africa and the Covenant People will bring the reader one step closer to understanding purpose. About the Author Michael Ray Lemons is an avid reader. His interests are strongly centered in Biblical history. While attending Wallace Community College, he enrolled in several history courses with the intention of better understanding religion around the world.
