In this book, equine osteopath Julie von Bismarck shares her experience and observations of the connections in the horse. She explains in vivid detail how far the health consequences of coercive measures such as Rollkur or so called LDR can extend, why even companion or leisure horses can develop stomach ulcers and locked joints, what restricted movement in the jaw has to do with an inflamed ligament in the hind leg, how a blocked lumbar vertebra is related to stifle conditions and digestive disorders, and how a seemingly innocuous stumble can lead to a horse with dehydration. The extraordinary connections and chains of events described in this book are vital information for every rider and horse owner, as well as for therapists involved in treating horses. Julie von Bismarcks words are an appeal to reason in the horse-riding world and a plea for the welfare of the horse in equestrian sport. Anyone who has read her books will see their riding and handling of horses through different eyes.

Throughout the pages, the author explains what draws humans to horses is the representation of beauty and freedom. Most of this compatibility comes from the horses flexibility in joining with humans as partners. This material prompts the human to evaluate the reasons why he has chosen the horses as companions or athletic partners or why he has chosen to breed them.This book is written with the hope that the knowledge I have acquired these many years will be helpful to create new lines of communication with our partners, the horse she shares. With more than ten eye-opening chapters, Horses And Humans - The Real Connection is not a training manual, but moreover to open the lines communication. The book discusses choosing a horse that is right for each individual, according to that persons personality and that of the horse they choose, the horse and its psyche, humans and their psyche, trainers and instructors, diagnostics and therapies, including homeopathic, holistic and conventional treatments, the art of lunging, classic principles of all riding techniques, equipment, and more. This book is written for the inexperienced, amateur, and professional riders as well. The author finds many proposed trainers are lacking in the fundamentals of understanding people and horses; particularly the psychological and physical connections that need to be established and understood.

Lusi and Davies have provided an excellent reference resource for students and graduates alike. The number of well-defined, relevant and clear images allow quick understanding for anyone interested in the fascial anatomy of the horse. This small book is perfect to have in your bag, allowing the student or clinician to find all the information they need on-site. - Sophie Neasham, final year veterinary student, University of Veterinary Medicine in Kosice, Slovakia Key features: The first book in equine anatomy to illustrate the fascial (soft connective tissue) connections of the equine forelimb. Clear, high-quality images (with reference images included on each page) help readers identify aspects of the limb photographed. A brief introduction to the forelimb musculoskeletal anatomy (with images) helps readers familiarize themselves with muscles and bones portrayed in photographs. Focused discussions highlight the practical applicability of the fascial connections illustrated. Accompanying video clips demonstrate connectivity of the fascial system particular lines of tension. The first of its kind in equine anatomy, this clear, concise anatomical guide illustrates the fascial (soft connective tissue) connections of the equine forelimb. Based on dissections of fresh equine cadaver limbs, it provides a visual map for equine physical therapists, veterinarians and horse riders, helping them to understand how pathologies, injuries, or movement abnormalities of the equine forelimb arise and/or progress from one area of the limb to another. The fascial system is one of the primary systems acted upon by equine physiotherapists and is of increasing interest to horse riders looking to achieve structural integration and balanced movement in their horse. With this in mind, key points in each chapter highlight everyday situations in which knowledge of the fascial system may assist in understanding horse movement and injury. This practically applicable anatomical atlas is the ideal reference for horse owners, body workers and veterinarians alike.

The Carolina crew is back in this hometown series of hot romantic comedies. Continue the adventure here... The Game - Book 4 (Emerson and Gavin) The Way You Are - Book 5 (Liv and Brett) The Runaround - Book 6 (Ari and Jax) THE GAME They say opposites attract. Someone needs to tell that to Emerson Scott. GAVIN: All I ever wanted was to play ball. When an act of sheer stupidity took that dream away, I thought I’d never bounce back. But now I have the opportunity to coach an up-and-coming phenom, and I'm giving it all I've got. The fact that I've been lusting after his smoking-hot sister only sweetens the deal. Emerson may be buttoned up like a school librarian, but I play my best when I’m under pressure … and I always bring the heat. EMERSON: Never lose focus. Never lose control. Those are the first two rules in my carefully calculated plan for success. Finding myself thrown into the role of guardian for my little brother was not part of that plan. But I can adjust for Jay’s sake; I’m not about to let one change make me lose sight of my goals. Too bad Jay’s hot young baseball coach doesn’t seem to give a fig about my plans. He has one of his own—and it includes me. Gavin Monroe may play like a pro, but that boy will never win this game. THE WAY YOU ARE “They say nice guys always finish last. I say the only place that should apply is in the bedroom—it’s just good manners, after all.” – Brett MacKinnon, nice guy and frequent resident of the friend zone LIV: There are really only three things I need in life: sex, baseball, and winning. My hot boyfriend and season tickets take care of the first two, while I always do my best to cover the last. So developing an unexpected crush on a new friend is more than a little inconvenient. I don’t have anything but friendship to offer Brett, but with the way he looks at me, he has me wishing I did. BRETT: I’ve been put in the friend zone so often, they’ve got a sandwich named after me. You’d think I’d be used to it by now. But when it comes to the delectable Liv, I’m determined to ditch the friend zone and show her I’m boyfriend material. Too bad the position’s already been filled by a ball-playing caveman who could flatten me with his pinky. What will it take to show Liv that nice guys can be more than just friends, and that love is the one game truly worth winning? THE RUNAROUND Men are good for two things: orgasms and reaching the wine glasses on the top shelf. ARI: I’ve always said boyfriends are like martinis; they’re lots of fun at first, but the longer you indulge the bigger headache they’ll give you. With career goals to crush and more than a few balls in the air, there’s no place in my life for the messy complications of love. Jax Crosby thinks he can tempt me to lose control and he’s using his daughter to reel me in. He’d be dangerously easy to fall for, but there are more important things in life than love, aren’t there? JAX: I like to stay two steps ahead; that way, I’m never surprised. But even I didn’t see this one coming. Congratulations to me—I’m a freakin’ dad. Now I’ve got a teenage daughter who hates me, an ex who wants to cut things off my body I’m not ready to part with, and an attraction to a curvy songbird that couldn’t have come at a worse time. But I’ve never met a situation I couldn’t handle, and I’ve never let a female get the best of me. So why do I have the feeling Ariana Amante might be one more thing I never saw coming? Books not included in this set include: The Fix - Book 1 (Laney and Nate) The Spark - Book 2 (Fiona and Mark) The Lucky One - Book 3 (Bailey and Jake)

The Anthropology of Magic

Magic is arguably the least understood subject in anthropology today. Exotic and fascinating, it offers us a glimpse into another world but it also threatens to undermine the foundations of anthropology due to its supposed irrational and non-scientific nature. Magic has thus often been 'explained away' by social or psychological reduction. The Anthropology of Magic redresses the balance and brings magic, as an aspect of consciousness, into focus through the use of classic texts and cutting-edge research. Suitable for student and scholar alike, The Anthropology of Magic updates a classical anthropological debate concerning the nature of human experience. A key theme is that human beings everywhere have the potential for magical consciousness. Taking a new approach to some perennial topics in anthropology - such as shamanism, mythology, witchcraft and healing - the book raises crucial theoretical and methodological issues to provide the reader with an engaging and critical understanding of the dynamics of magic.

Jerry Fodor is one of the most important philosophers of mind in recent decades. He has done much to set the agenda in this field and has had a significant influence on the development of cognitive science. Fodor's project is that of constructing a physicalist vindication of folk psychology and so paving the way for the development of a scientifically respectable intentional psychology. The centrepiece of his engagement in this project is a theory of the cognitive mind, namely, the computational theory of mind, which postulates the existence of a language of thought. Fodor: Language, Mind and Philosophy is a comprehensive study of Fodor's writings. Individual chapters are devoted to each of the major issues raised by his work and contain extensive discussion of his relationships to key developments in cognitive science and to the views of such philosophical luminaries as Dennett, Davidson and Searle. This accessible book will appeal to advanced level undergraduate students of philosophy and related disciplines. It will also be of great interest to professional philosophers and cognitive scientists.
