These 37 essays are rooted in the inspiration I experience in working with my patients and with participants at the Opening the Heart Workshop. Though they are all very different in tone and content, they are all about love in the small places, off center stage. They may have been about lifting a hosta leaf and findinding a spider's web in diamonds of morning dew, or about watching new grass grow, holding a weeping patient in my office, watching a man outside my office drag his leg behind as he carries groceries home. They are all, I think, small love stories.

In the Circle and the Diamond, the author's disaffection with the shortcomings of music analysis leads to the creation of an original contribution to understanding our Western musical heritage. Composer Roland Trogan explicates Susanne Langer's notion that music consists of "patterns of sentience" by extending the notion of "harmonic rhythm" (rate of chordal change) to the analytical parameters of texture, dynamics, tempo, tonality and form. Changes in the rates of each parameter create patterns, and these correspond to existential and phenomenological patterns in human experience, ranging from mental and emotional states to biorhythms and the course of life itself. the author also categorizes music according to three temporal esthetics--circular/durational, chronological and infinite--that lay behind historical styles, in order to explain how music changes in response to new temporal world-views. Novel perspectives on the compositional use of silence, Arnold Schoenberg's impact on 20th-century music, music notation and the nature of inspiration in music will intrigue composers, academicians and students of music. by virtue of its sociological commentaries and nascent phenomenological descriptions, all readers will find the Circle and the Diamond a trove of stimulating and provocative ideas.

The Circle moves the reader forward to the year 2029, just before the start of the world's greatest holocaust, called the Battle of Armageddon. Beginning in the Middle East, the Battle spreads rapidly around the globe until the military forces of Earth are rendered helpless. The Jihad is influenced by extra-terrestrial forces with weapons far more deadly than those devised by man. All would be lost if not for the Toren Empire, which furnishes space ships enabling approximately 160,000 people to be removed from Earth in time to avoid their demise. The evil forces of the Atlantean Empire make sure that all humans who remained on Earth perish so they can claim the planet for their empire. The last of the Earthlings spend more than twenty years preparing for the time when they can return to Earth. Although they face overwhelming odds, the survivors return with some surprises of their own to confront the evildoers in a final conflict where the winner takes all.

Entering the Circle addresses the practical and methodological aspects of research within the interpretive or hermeneutic perspective. It contains descriptions of exemplary interpretive research projects in psychology and closely allied fields. Offering insight into the range and subtleties of the methods of interpretive inquiry, this collection challenges the reader to question the assumptions behind more traditional research that aims, instead, to objectify human phenomena.
Embraced with zeal by a wide array of activists and policymakers, the restorative justice movement has made promises to reduce the disproportionate rates of Aboriginal involvement in crime and the criminal justice system and to offer a healing model suitable to Aboriginal communities. Such promises should be the focus of considerable critical analysis and evaluation, yet this kind of scrutiny has largely been absent. 'Will the Circle be Unbroken?' explores and confronts the potential and pitfalls of restorative justice, offering a much-needed critical perspective. Drawing on their shared experiences working with Aboriginal communities, Jane Dickson-Gilmore and Carol LaPrairie examine the outcomes of restorative justice projects, paying special attention to such prominent programs as conferencing, sentencing circles, and healing circles. They also look to Aboriginal justice reforms in other countries, comparing and contrasting Canadian reforms with the restorative efforts in New Zealand, Australia, and the United States. 'Will the Circle be Unbroken?' provides a comprehensive overview of the critical issues in Aboriginal and restorative justice, placing these in the context of community. It examines the essential role of community in furthering both Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal aspirations for restorative justice.
In 1866, President Andrew Johnson was trying to find solutions to a bewildering array of immediate post-Civil War challenges: what to do about the recently liberated slaves, how to bring the South back into the Union, whether or not former members of the Confederacy should be pardoned and forgiven for their war time acts and building a thriving national economy that would provide jobs for millions of new veterans. Confronted with an increasingly assertive Congress that had been frustrated by its lack of influence during the presidency of Abraham Lincoln, Johnson decided to take his case directly to the American people for the fall mid-term elections of 1866, becoming the first president in history to actively engage in a political campaign. In a trade ride in which he was joined by the hero Ulysses S. Grant, the very young George Armstrong Custer, and the legendary William Seward, the secretary of state who was viciously attacked on the same night that Lincoln was murdered, Johnson spoke to hundreds of thousands of voters from New York to Chicago and St. Louis. But because of his confrontational, intemperate rhetorical style and habit of engaging hecklers in direct verbal battle, Johnson alienated more people than he won over, resulting not only in a thumping defeat for his cause at the polls, but a move to impeach and remove him from office by opponents who were convinced that Johnson's behavior on the Swing Around the Circle showed that he was mentally unbalanced. Repeatedly referred to by historians and reporters in the decades since, the Swing Around the Circle has never been explored in one single book until now.
