♥ Book Title : Literature, Technology and Magical Thinking, 1880–1920
☯ Full Synopsis : "In this 2001 book Pamela Thurschwell examines the intersection of literary culture, the occult and new technology at the fin-de-siècle. Thurschwell argues that technologies began suffusing the public imagination from the mid-nineteenth century on: they seemed to support the claims of spiritualist mediums. Talking to the dead and talking on the phone both held out the promise of previously unimaginable contact between people: both seemed to involve 'magical thinking'. Thurschwell looks at the ways in which psychical research, the scientific study of the occult, is reflected in the writings of such authors as Henry James, George du Maurier and Oscar Wilde, and in the foundations of psychoanalysis. This study offers provocative interpretations of fin-de-siècle literary and scientific culture in relation to psychoanalysis, queer theory and cultural history."Article| Pamela Thurschwell| Statement ..."

♥ Book Title : Autokind Vs. Mankind
☯ Full Synopsis : "An automotive empire controls the forms of our cities and therefore dominates the lives of people. Automobility limits citizenship, depriving the poor, elderly, children, and handicapped of the most ordinary human rights. Using contemporary sources, Kenneth Schneider traces the rise of the automobile from "the toy of the rich" to "the necessity of the poor," and "the deprivation of all." He stresses the irony of how early automobile enthusiasm resulted in today's harsh auto-dominated realities: cities converted from human to automotive scale, the loss of urban open space to consumptive suburban sprawl, the billions of hours lost in traffic congestion annually, a greater human loss of life to accidents than from all America's wars, the promoted consumption of declining fuel and other resources. Human values and the content of civilization are rocked asunder by commandments to increase exclusive automobile travel. Whereas the basic value of city life derives from minimizing the need to travel, cities today are stretched to demand ever more travel in misshaped human environments that ironically promote a negative result of economic growth. But human beings are resilient and do learn. They can reverse course and build vibrant environments in the image of their own scale, visions, and values. Autokind Vs. Mankind aims at that potential."Article| Kenneth R. Schneider| Statement ..."

There are the usual suspects—the creepy hitchhiker, the eerie lights along a lonely stretch of road—as well as many you never dared to imagine. Each of the book's twenty-five chapters ratchets up the suspense, from an introduction that sets the scene and draws you in, to a haunting climax. Whether the actor Telly Savalas's haunting encounter with a long-dead good Samaritan on a rural Long Island road, or the Ghost Riders in the Sky who appear over the plains of Texas, these stories will bring delightful fright to readers young and old."Article| Tom Ogden| Statement ..."
