A luta política assume nas sociedades contemporâneas, em condições de calendário eleitoral estável, essencialmente, a forma da luta entre os partidos. Quando uma revolução se coloca em movimento, no entanto, tudo pode ser subvertido, porque milhões de pessoas inativas ou até desinteressadas despertam para a luta social. Este livro apresenta-nos uma rigorosa investigação sobre a revolução portuguesa que ambiciona dar voz aos que não tiveram voz.
Nos livros de história eles são, não poucas vezes, invisíveis. Mas são os rostos comoventes destas grandes massas populares que oferecem sentido àquelas maravilhosas fotografias da revolução portuguesa. Anónimos, os seus retratos nas manifestações dizem-nos tudo o que precisamos de saber sobre a esperança e a frustração, a fúria e o medo, o entusiasmo e a ilusão, e tudo aquilo que oferece grandeza à vida e não cabe em palavras. Foram eles que fizeram a revolução. Nas páginas deste livro bate um coração que tem respeito e admiração por essa gente
Psychotherapist Irvin D. Yalom probes further into the mysteries of the therapeutic encounter in this entertaining and thoughtful follow-up to his bestselling Love's Executioner In six enthralling stories drawn from his own clinical experience, Irvin D. Yalom once again proves himself an intrepid explorer of the human psyche as he guides his patients--and himself--toward transformation. With eloquent detail and sharp-eyed observation Yalom introduces us to a memorable cast of characters. Drifting through his dreams and trampling through his thoughts are Paula, Yalom's "courtesan of death"; Myrna, whose eavesdropping gives new meaning to patient confidentiality; Magnolia, into whose ample lap Yalom longs to pour his own sorrows, even as he strives to ease hers; and Momma--ill-tempered, overpowering, and suffocating her son with both love and disapproval.
A richly rewarding, almost illicit glimpse into the therapist's heart and mind, Momma and the Meaning of Life illuminates the unique potential of every human relationship.
Between 1880 and 1915, thirteen million Italians left their homeland, launching the largest emigration from any country in recorded world history.
As the young Italian state struggled to adapt to the exodus, it pioneered the establishment of a "global nation"--an Italy abroad cemented by ties of culture, religion, ethnicity, and economics. In this wide-ranging work, Mark Choate examines the relationship between the Italian emigrants, their new communities, and their home country. The state maintained that emigrants were linked to Italy and to one another through a shared culture. Officials established a variety of programs to coordinate Italian communities worldwide. They fostered identity through schools, athletic groups, the Dante Alighieri Society, the Italian Geographic Society, the Catholic Church, Chambers of Commerce, and special banks to handle emigrant remittances. But the projects aimed at binding Italians together also raised intense debates over priorities and the emigrants' best interests. Did encouraging loyalty to Italy make the emigrants successful at integrating? Were funds better spent on supporting the home nation rather than sustaining overseas connections? In its probing discussion of immigrant culture, transnational identities, and international politics, this fascinating book not only narrates the grand story of Italian emigration but also provides important background to immigration debates that continue to this day.
