This book cumulates numerous observations made by the author during more than five decades. This period includes the Second World war, the siege of Leningrad (1941-44), postwar years in the secondary school and at the Medical Institute, the dark time of dictatorship of the Communist party and Soviet power, discriminations, the violation of human rights, anti-Semitism, the aggressive behavior against foreigners, thaw, perestroika, the breakdown of illusions and hopes, chaos of a wild capitalism, a formation of the society of rich new-Russians. The author had focused his attention on those episodes representing the Traits of his Epoch. The author's life was very rich in meeting and friendly relations with many distinguished personalities. In science (Nobel Laureates Julius Axelrod and Daniel Bovet), in music (Dmitri Shostakovich and Genrich Neigaus), in art (Solomon Gershov), in literature (Igor Guberman). Friendship with Andrei Sakharov, the leader of struggle for Human Rights, Nobel Laureate for Peace, during fifteen years enriched the author enormously. The unique book demonstrates the treasures of the human dignity resistant to numerous pressures of the regime. Without such books the past is growing dim.

In 1978, when music found its way into Russ DiBella’s life largely by way of external circumstances, a natural progression of sorts began to unfold which would eventually marry his affection for words with a nascent interest in drumming and lyric writing. What began as a teenage rite of passage — his first rock concert — would spawn a lifelong passion for all things music, manifesting itself in ways both deliberate and unanticipated. Part memoir and part backstage pass, From the Inside is actually written from the perspective of an outsider looking in — although very often and surreptitiously from within. With a detailed history of how music became such an actively integral part of his life (even before an awareness of his parents’ unintended influence) and an in-depth, behind-the-scenes look at several concerts (to include a respectable gathering of drumsticks along the way), DiBella recounts with enthusiasm and occasional humility more than thirty years of experiences as admirer, accomplice and collector. Less a narrative about unofficial access to “rock stars,” From the Inside sneaks a peek behind the proverbial curtain to discover some of the inner workings of live concerts. Meeting drum techs, guitar techs and other assorted crew and band members and observing load-ins, soundchecks and even a few shows from the other side of the stage offers an intimate look at activities otherwise inaccessible to the typical concert-goer. Not wanting for moments of rock’n’roll flash, encounters with rockers Mick Jagger, Eddie Van Halen and Neil Peart as well as country artists Brad Paisley and Montgomery Gentry among many others provide additional insight and add elements of celebrity to this otherwise personal account. Clearly written with an appreciation both for music and those artists who’ve inspired, From the Inside is the story of a life examined through the lens of music.

An examination of why government agencies allow environmental injustices to persist. Many state and federal environmental agencies have put in place programs, policies, and practices to redress environmental injustices, and yet these efforts fall short of meeting the principles that environmental justice activists have fought for. In From the Inside Out, Jill Lindsey Harrison offers an account of the bureaucratic culture that hinders regulatory agencies' attempts to reduce environmental injustices. It is now widely accepted that America's poorest communities, communities of color, and Native American communities suffer disproportionate harm from environmental hazards, with higher exposure to pollution and higher incidence of lead poisoning, cancer, asthma, and other diseases linked to environmental ills. And yet, Harrison reports, some regulatory staff view these problems as beyond their agencies' area of concern, requiring too many resources, or see neutrality as demanding “color-blind” administration. Drawing on more than 160 interviews (with interviewees including 89 current or former agency staff members and more than 50 environmental justice activists and others who interact with regulatory agencies) and more than 50 hours of participant observation of agency meetings (both open- and closed-door), Harrison offers a unique account of how bureaucrats resist, undermine, and disparage environmental justice reform—and how environmental justice reformers within the agencies fight back by trying to change regulatory practice and culture from the inside out. Harrison argues that equity, not just aggregated overall improvement, should be a metric for evaluating environmental regulation.

From the Inside Out! A spiritual Journey: is a collection of deep, soul searching poems, derived from years of trauma the Author herself has experienced. Though spiritual in their content, there are many moments of deep anguish and intense joy as she finds her way through years of abuse, fear and self destruction. Searching for a way to express her hurt, anger, pain and joy to the world, she hopes that her pilgrimage of healing will give others the courage to speak up and step out of their own hell, to find their own path to healing. The poems cover topics from relationships to the human condition, seen through the eyes of an abuse victim who felt very isolated and alone in her suffering. Healing can come in many forms, through many different venues. The hope is that through these words, inspiration, and the knowledge that you are never alone in your suffering, healing will be a possibility. Many have walked similar paths and survived, through the courage to overcome and realization that He walks with you and shares your pain. Survival is possible, so is rising above the hurt and anger, to discover the person inside that you were meant to be, before the trauma!

It has been my pleasure to know June for more than 30 years. During that time I had had the advantage of observing her evolve and manage a difficult disease. June is one of those rare unique individuals who survive and even thrive with this very difficult disease. Her bigger strength is the ability to deal directly with the illness and adapt survival tools for coping. I have observed her use of diet, exercise and meditation as tools. Additionally, her personal strength gives her the courage to speak freely of her experience for the pacific purpose of giving other hope. Writing this book is a journey recounting the years devoted to survival and the lessons learned along the way. La Doris Sam Heinly, author/speaker I am Still Her The Memories in the Making In Bi Polar from the Inside, I share my life experience with being Bi Polar. Diagnosed at thirty four, my journey to a healthier and functional life began with the help of family, friends, doctors and medication. Drawing on the things I have learned the last 34 yeas, I have compiled my book and workbook of tools, in hopes that some, or all of the tools will be helpful to the Bi Polar person, and their families to have a more manageable life.

An updated edition—with a new preface—of the bestselling parenting classic by the author of "BRAINSTORM: The Power and Purpose of the Teenage Brain" In Parenting from the Inside Out, child psychiatrist Daniel J. Siegel, M.D., and early childhood expert Mary Hartzell, M.Ed., explore the extent to which our childhood experiences shape the way we parent. Drawing on stunning new findings in neurobiology and attachment research, they explain how interpersonal relationships directly impact the development of the brain, and offer parents a step-by-step approach to forming a deeper understanding of their own life stories, which will help them raise compassionate and resilient children. Born out of a series of parents' workshops that combined Siegel's cutting-edge research on how communication impacts brain development with Hartzell's decades of experience as a child-development specialist and parent educator, this book guides parents through creating the necessary foundations for loving and secure relationships with their children.

Armies know all about killing. It is what they do, and ours does it more effectively than most. We are painfully coming to realize, however, that we are also especially good at killing our own "from the inside out," silently, invisibly. In every major war since Korea, more of our veterans have taken their lives than have lost them in combat. The latest research, rooted in veteran testimony, reveals that the most severe and intractable PTSD--fraught with shame, despair, and suicide--stems from "moral injury." But how can there be rampant moral injury in what our military, our government, our churches, and most everyone else call just wars? At the root of our incomprehension lies just war theory--developed, expanded, and updated across the centuries to accommodate the evolution of warfare, its weaponry, its scale, and its victims. Any serious critique of war, as well any true attempt to understand the profound, invisible wounds it inflicts, will be undermined from the outset by the unthinking and all-but-universal acceptance of just war doctrine. Killing from the Inside Out radically questions that theory, examines its legacy, and challenges us to look beyond it, beyond just war.

Witchcraft from the Inside

The word Witchcraft has been misunderstood for centuries. In the past 500 years, millions of people have faced persecution, torture, and even death after being accused of practicing Witchcraft. For many people the word "Witch" still conjures up images of secret spells and diabolical midnight rituals. So what exactly is Witchcraft (also called Wica or Wicca), and how did it evolve into one of today's fastest-growing religions? Witchcraft From the Inside presents the history of Witchcraft?from its roots in ancient fertility religions, to the madness of the Malleus Maleficarum and the European Witch trials, to the growth of modern Wicca in Britain and the United States. Essays contributed by leading Wiccan authorities explore the present state of Wicca and provide a glimpse into the future of this peaceful nature religion. Author Ray Buckland studied Witchcraft under Gerald Gardner, the man largely credited for the revival of Witchcraft and the establishment of Wicca as a modern religion. Mr. Buckland was instrumental in bringing Gardnerian Witchcraft from England to the United States and is considered to be one of the leading American authorities on Witchcraft. In the following excerpt, Mr. Buckland explains the mundane truths behind the seemingly horrific ingredients of the legendary "witches' brews". We know, from Shakespeare and other sources, that the Witches threw into their pots the most gruesome ingredients, right? There were things like the tongue of a snake, bloody fingers, catgut, donkey's eyes, frog's foot, goat's beard, a Jew's ear, mouse tail, snake head, swine snout, wolf's foot, and so on. Pretty disgusting by the sound of it?if you take them at face value! In fact these were all the most innocuous of ingredients: normal plants and herbs. Today all plants have a Latin name, so that they may be distinct and positively identified. Yet years ago they were known only by common, local names. A plant or herb might be known by one name in one part of the country and a quite different name in another part of the country. And these names were colorful ones, frequently given to the plant because of its looks, color, or other attributes. In the above list, adder's tongue was a name given to the dogtooth violet (Erythronium americanum); bloody fingers was the foxglove (Digitalis purpurea); catgut was the hoary pea (Tephrosia virginiana); donkey's eyes were the seeds of the cowage plant (Mucuna pruriens); frog's foot was the bulbous buttercup (Ranunculus bulbosus); goat's beard was the vegetable oyster (Tragopogon porrofolius); Jew's ear was a fungus that grew on elder trees and elm trees (Peziza auricula); mouse tail was common stonecrop (Sedum acre); snake head was balmony (Chelone glabra); swine snout was the dandelion (Taraxacum dens leonis); and wolf's foot was bugle weed (Lycopus virginicus). So the seemingly fearsome concoctions that the Witches mixed up in their cauldrons were nothing more than simple herbs going into a cookpot!
