The Environmental Unconscious in the Fiction of Don DeLillo

Book Short Summary:

This book presents an ecocritical reading of DeLillo’s novels in an attempt to mediate between the seemingly incompatible influences of postmodernism and environmentalism. Martucci argues that although DeLillo is responding to and engaging with a postmodern culture of simulacra and simulation, his novels do not reflect a postmodernist theory of the "end of nature." Rather, his fiction emphasizes the lasting significance of the natural world and alerts us to the dangers of destroying it. In order to support this argument, Martucci examines DeLillo’s novels in the context of traditional American literary representations of the environment, especially through the lens of Leo Marx’s discussion of the conflict between technology and nature found in traditional American literature. She demonstrate that DeLillo’s fiction explores the way in which new technologies alter perceptions and mediate reality to a further extent than earlier technologies; however, she argues that he keeps the material world at the forefront of his novels, thereby illuminating the environmental implications of these technologies. Through close readings of Americana, The Names, White Noise, and Underworld, and discussions of postmodernist and ecocritical theories, this project engages with current criticism of DeLillo, postmodernist fiction, and environmental criticism.

Book Short Summary:

For two decades, I have been responding to questions about the nature of health psychology and how it differs from medical psychology, behavioral medicine, and clinical psychology. From the beginning, I have taken the position that any applica tion of psychological theory or practice to problems and issues of the health system is health psychology. I have repeatedly used an analogy to Newell and Simon's "General Problem Solver" program of the late 1950s and early 1960s, which had two major functional parts, in addition to the "executive" component. One was the "problem-solving core" (the procedural competence); the other was the representa tion of the "problem environment. " In the analogy, the concepts, knowledge, and techniques of psychology constitute the core competence; the health system in all its complexity is the problem environment. A health psychologist is one whose basic competence in psychology is augmented by a working knowledge of some aspect of the health system. Quite apparently, there are functionally distinct aspects of health psychology to the degree that there are meaningful subdivisions in psychological competence and significantly different microenvironments within the health system. I hesitate to refer to them as areas of specialization, as the man who gave health psychology its formal definition, Joseph Matarazzo, has said that there are no specialties in psychology (cited in the editors' preface to this book).

Book Short Summary:

Screening Generation X: The Politics and Popular Memory of Youth in Contemporary Cinema examines popular representations of Generation X in American and British film. In arguing that the various constructions of youth are marked by major cultural shifts and societal inequalities, it analyzes the iconic 'Gen X' figures ranging from the slacker, the teenage time traveller, and third wave feminists, to the oeuvre of Molly Ringwald and Richard Linklater. This book explores the important cultural work performed by films that mediate the experiences of Generation X and critiques the ongoing marginalization of the youth who struggle to find their identity and a voice in increasingly unstable times. Specific analyses of such films as Pump Up the Volume, The Breakfast Club, Heathers, Donnie Darko and Waking Life are used to illustrate the research.

Book Short Summary:

Caras first book, Point and Shoot Poetry, Image and Verse for Better or Worse, runs the gamut. In it, she opens up and shares a vast array of emotions. In her new work, The Search for Authenticity, we are taken on a more personal journey of circumstance, choice, and consequence, all of which can help us find our authentic selves. The photos in this book were all imaged through Caras pinhole camera, a camera she created during her time spent in art school. One special doll Cara shows in her work is one that was given to her as a child and that her mother has kept all this time. Cara intends to take the dolls on even more adventures to new and exciting places and hopes to share their future stories of enlightenment (that is if traveling around the country with dolls doesnt get her locked up first).

Book Short Summary:

This collection of essays on diverse issues in collaborative work illuminates the next direction for the study and practice of collaboration in classrooms and research projects. The essays probe more deeply than any previous work into the political, social, and individual psychologies of students, teachers, and researchers working together. Beginning with a critique of the ideology of individualism, the authors treat classroom issues at all levels from middle school through graduate school. Advocating an affirmative philosophy of collaboration, the authors attempt to understand both its shortcomings and its successes, as illustrated in many examples of essays and comments written by students in collaborative projects.

Book Short Summary:

As the 10th Annual Million Dollar Malibu Tequila Surf Off nears, Malibu is in a state of panic and it’s up to Dr. Jennifer Ferguson, head of the privately-funded Shark Understanding and Awareness Center (SUAC) to put their minds at ease. With a NAVY Seal’s background, a Ph.D. and a life spent studying the feeding behavior of sharks, Jennifer struggles to prove the attacks are isolated – and unrelated. Surf shop owner and local legend Slade Kane isn’t so sure. He’s been surfing for four decades and knows a pattern when he sees one, even without all of Jennifer’s fancy credentials. When he’s approached by the paparazzo who took the shark-attack picture, the two agree. Something’s fishy in Malibu. And it’s twice as big, twice as aggressive, and twice as deadly as anything they’ve ever seen before.

Book Short Summary:

Life is but a splendorous ethereal jewel—sparkling brilliantly as it spins throughout time and space. Each of its countless colorful facets represents a memory, fleeting feeling, or thought. There is no better way to capture a finite moment in time, emotion, or personal revelation than with a poem. This carefully compiled collection of chronologically arranged pieces contains inspirational and introspective poems in a variety of formats and styles. It is the second in what will hopefully be a series. The first volume is titled Heart, Mind, and Soul, containing autobiographical poetry by the author Heather Mitchell, written between ages thirteen and twenty-six. This volume, Facets of Life, picks up from that point, spanning ages twenty-seven through forty-four. Although still autobiographical, these increasingly complex poems are much more introspective and thought-provoking as the author ages, further matures, and faces many unusual trials, yet somehow finds the inner strength to not only survive but to persevere. This book is sure to encourage self-reflection and personal growth. Readers may also find insights to which they can relate or take comfort in knowing that others share similar seemingly insurmountable trials, thus helping them feel less alone. Facets of Life is perfect for those seeking to explore their inner selves, face hidden demons, and most importantly, celebrate their own uniqueness.

Book Short Summary:

This book examines the art and craft of motion picture photography through a veteran professional cinematographer's personal experiences on five major motion pictures, each selected to illustrate a particular series of challenges for the photographer. "Every Frame a Rembrandt" is an expression heard on sound stages and locations the world over. While in most cases the expression is used lightly and not infrequently with a certain amount of sarcasm, its true meaning speaks highly of most cinematographers' commitment to producing the best, most interesting, unusual and memorable images for the screen. Through the five films he selected for this book Laszlo is able to show the broad range of complexity in motion picture photography, from the relatively simple "point and shoot" in the typcal western to complex in-camera effects. In recounting his "war stories" Laszlo is able to show the day to day activities of a cinematographer before, during and after filming the project, discussing equipment, film stocks, testing, labs, unions, agents, budget requirements, and working with the director and producer. The five films discussed are Southern Comfort, The Warriors, Rambo: First Blood, Streets of Fire, and Innerspace. The book is illustrated throughout with production stills from Laszlo's extensive collection (12 in a color insert).

An FBI agent goes undercover on a Greek island and becomes entangled in the locals’ lives in “the perfect blend of intrigue, romance, and travelogue” (Publishers Weekly). Nick Damigos, a gay Greek-American FBI agent, is undercover on a sun-drenched Greek island to investigate a series of mysterious fires. As the island residents grapple with declining tourism, poverty, a refugee crisis, family feuds, and a perilously damaged church, an arsonist has invaded their midst. Nick has arrived just in time to witness the latest crime—and be hailed as a hero for saving a beloved truffle-sniffing dog. But his work becomes challenging when he’s drawn into a romance with a young bartender, Takis—who ends up as a prime suspect. Theirs is not the only complicated romance in the community, though, and Takis isn’t the only suspicious character on the island. Nick has to unravel the truth in time to prevent catastrophe, as he comes to terms with his own past trauma. In saving the village, he will go a long way toward saving himself.

Book Short Summary:

Calluses, calabash-big, are on my feet. Sugar in my veins sweetens my life. Salt preserves my flesh in this unrefrigerated land. I am woman Woe I am. Ise woman. In this mythical-poetic collection of verse, seasoned poet Horace Goddard shares vivid imagery and energetic language as he offers a bold, refreshing, yet introspective glimpse into an African Caribbean mans search for a home in the diaspora. As migratory man travels from place to place and establishes ties to the land, he nurtures a perpetual yearning for the land of his origin and often wonders, Where is home and how will I get there? In this new collection of poems, often penned in fable-like style, Goddard questions what home means, what culture means when a person is transplanted, and what race means in a country that is predominantly black or white. As Goddard offers a memorable lyrical journey from Africa to the Caribbean and finally to Canada, his poetry invokes emotions and nostalgia as he explores the differences in cultures and details his experiences as a traveler. It is through this celebrated poets eyes that many will truly understand what it is like to journey home.

Book Short Summary:

Jon Steele is a war junkie. Soon after starting work as an ITN cameraman, he began to feel strangely at home in the kind of places ordinary people get evacuated from. Before long, he was living for the rush which comes as bullets fly past your head and bombs explode at your feet. Normal life just couldn't compete... In Georgia, Jon filmed on the last flight out of the besieged airport at Sokhumi, as the plane took off in the dead of night, all lights extinguished, going the wrong way down the runway, directly towards the nearby steep and virtually invisible mountain range while Abkhazian soldiers fired off random anti-aircraft shells in their general direction. In Moscow, he filmed in the midst of chaos as armed rebels and Militia fought bloodthirsty, hand-to-hand battles on the streets around him. In Rwanda, he filmed the horrific aftermath to the most brutal massacre of modern times - and his own neck got far too close to the edge of a machete for comfort. In Zaire, he filmed endless fields full of young children deranged by hunger and ravaged by cholera. In Bosnia, Jon realised that he had, in fact, seen and filmed more than he could cope with, and finally spiralled out of control, deep into emotional meltdown. But somehow War Junkie is also an incredibly funny and exhilarating book. The humour is dark but sharp as broken glass. The action comes so thick and fast you can forget to breathe. War Junkie is shocking, hilarious, deeply moving and, ultimately, it packs a powerful psychological punch. It will challenge everything you thought you knew about modern warfare as it shines an unforgiving spotlight into some of the darkest recesses of recent history.

Book Short Summary:

Oh! the Places I've Been is a memoir Bernice Livingston Youtz has written primarily for her family and a few friends. She relates childhood in the Depression of the 1930s (she always knew that it was spelled with a capital D), adolescence during World War II, young adulthood, marriage, children in the post-war 1950s. She recalls an early love of reading which led, not surprisingly, to an aspiration for travel, although there was no opportunity for that until she was an adult, no "study abroad" programs or summers hosteling in Europe. She made up for that in work and travel in post-war Europe, and--after her marriage--she and her husband lived in Beirut, Lebanon, for three years. She writes of the great pleasure she took in raising her three children and in the travel she has been privileged to enjoy in recent years. She is grateful for the privilege of having lived in Lebanon and on two occasions in France, has traveled in some sixty countries. She still reads, thinks often of the many people she has known throughout the world.

Book Short Summary:

"In this remarkable journey, Mark Woods captures the essence of our National Parks: their serenity and majesty, complexity and vitality--and their power to heal." --Ken Burns Many childhood summers, Mark Woods piled into a station wagon with his parents and two sisters and headed to America's national parks. Mark’s most vivid childhood memories are set against a backdrop of mountains, woods, and fireflies in places like Redwood, Yosemite, and Grand Canyon national parks. On the eve of turning fifty and a little burned-out, Mark decided to reconnect with the great outdoors. He'd spend a year visiting the national parks. He planned to take his mother to a park she'd not yet visited and to re-create his childhood trips with his wife and their iPad-generation daughter. But then the unthinkable happened: his mother was diagnosed with cancer, given just months to live. Mark had initially intended to write a book about the future of the national parks, but Lassoing the Sun grew into something more: a book about family, the parks, the legacies we inherit and the ones we leave behind.

Book Short Summary:

No risk is too high. No adventure too daunting. Emery Lawson reinvents herself after another near-death experience prompts a thorough reevaluation of her priorities. Empowered to live a life of no regrets, she casts aside all that is familiar to face her fears and chase her dreams. But as she heads for the wilds of Alaska, romance is definitely not on her agenda, because she's convinced she's incapable of falling in love. Pasha Dunn has learned to expect the unexpected in her job with an adventure outfitter in the remote Alaskan interior. Adaptability is essential in such a savage and unforgiving landscape. But she's woefully unprepared when her infallible intuition tells her that client Emery Lawson is the soul mate she's been waiting for all her life. Emery is clearly determined to remain unattached, and her high-risk vagabond lifestyle is too far outside Pasha's comfort zone. All that they think they want and know will be challenged when they are thrust into a nightmare of survival and endurance high above the Arctic Circle.
