Witchcraft, Demons and DeliveranceLIT Verlag Münster. 2015
Beliefs in witchcraft and demons still shape many societies and seem to be increasing rather than disappearing with modernization and urbanization. Witch hunts in Africa and Asia show the scope of the problem. The deliverance practices of Pentecostal and charismatic churches are widely controversial and their effects rather ambiguous. The contributions in this volume, written by experts and practitioners from four continents, analyze these phenomena from the perspectives of intercultural theology, anthropology and ethnology and describe the responses of Catholic and Protestant churches. Claudia Wahrisch-Oblau is a missiologist and heads the Evangelism Department of the United Evangelical Mission, Wuppertal, Germany. Henning Wrogemann is Professor for Missiology and Comparative Religion at the Protestant University Wuppertal/Bethel, Germany.
Acts of WillSimon and Schuster. 2010
Once Freud's most favoured student and associate, Otto Rank came to be reviled by the psychoanalytic establishment that formerly revered him. This biography exposes the hostile, at time libelious treatment of Rank in the standard histories of psychoanalysis and shows him to be a great analytic pioneer of this century. His influence was felt not only by mental health professionals, but also by such artists and writers as Anais Nin, Henry Miller, Paul Goodman and Max Lerner.

Wales since 1939Oxford University Press. 2013
This book is the first overview of Wales in the period from the Second World War to the early years of devolution. Drawing upon in-depth research, it offers an incisive account of an important phase in British history from the perspective of a nation that is too often overlooked. The period since 1939 saw more rapid and significant change than any other time in Welsh history. Wales developed a more assertive identity of its own and some of the apparatus of a nation state. Yet its economy floundered between boom and bust, its traditional communities were transformed and the Welsh language and other aspects of its distinctiveness were undermined by a globalizing world. Wales was also deeply divided by class, language, ethnicity, gender, religion and region. Its people grew wealthier, healthier and more educated but they were not always happier. This ground-breaking book examines the story of Wales since 1939, giving voice to ordinary people and the variety of experiences within the nation. This is a history of not just a nation, but of its residents' hopes and fears, their struggles and pleasures and their views of where they lived and the wider world. A significant contribution to ideas on national identity and to public debates on Welshness and Britishness in a devolved UK, Wales since 1939 embraces topics ranging from the Aberfan disaster, the miners' strikes and the flooding of Tryweryn to the impacts of consumerism, rugby and popular music. It will appeal to anyone interested in the recent history of both Wales and Britain, and in British social and political history more generally.

Giovanni Pascoli, Gabriele D’Annunzio, and the Ethics of DesireRowman & Littlefield. 2017
This book focuses on the notion of desire in late-nineteenth-century Italy, and how this notion shapes the life and works of two of Italy’s most prominent authors at that time, Giovanni Pascoli and Gabriele D’Annunzio. In the fin de siècle, the philosophical speculation on desire, inspired by Arthur Schopenhauer and Friedrich Nietzsche intersected the popularization of Charles Darwin’s theory of evolution. Within this context, desire is conceptualized as an obscure force and remnant of mankind’s animalistic origins. Both Pascoli and D’Annunzio put into play the drama of desire as a force splitting the unity of the characters in their works, and variously attempt to provide solutions to this haunting force within the human self.
Paddling TennesseeRowman & Littlefield. 2011
