Have you ever said something was only a dream, only a coincidence, or only your imagination? In this book you'll discover that these ''only'' things can be keys to finding and living your bigger story. You'll learn to tap into the nine powers of dreaming, the nine rules of coincidence, and the seven uses of imagination. You'll be inspired by stories of how innovators and world changers have used these gifts, and you'll learn wonderful games to help you access your intuition, heal yourself, and bring juice to your everyday life. When we claim the power of the Three Only Things, we reclaim tools that are profoundly simple yet have the power to remake our lives and the world. ''What Robert Moss does - again and again and with such clarity and greatness of heart - is remind us that magic is a breath away and that everyone has the capacity to tap into the heritage that is truly ours.'' - MANDA SCOTT, bestselling author of the Boudica novels

States at War, Volume 2

While many Civil War reference books exist, there is no single compendium that contains important details about the combatant states (and territories) that Civil War researchers can readily access for their work. People looking for information about the organizations, activities, economies, demographics, and prominent personalities of Civil War states and state governments must assemble data from a variety of sources, with many key sources remaining unavailable online. This volume provides a crucial reference book for Civil War scholars and historians, professional or amateur, seeking information about New York during the war. Its principal sources include the Official Records, state adjutant general reports, legislative journals, state and federal legislation, executive speeches and proclamations on the federal and state levels, and the general and special orders issued by the military authorities of both governments, North and South. Designed and organized for easy use, this book can be read in two ways: by individual state, with each chapter offering a stand-alone history of an individual state's war years; or across states, comparing reactions to the same event or solutions to the same problems.

Sex and Race, Volume 2

In the Sex and Race series, first published in the 1940s, historian Joel Augustus Rogers questioned the concept of race, the origins of racial differentiation, and the root of the “color problem.” Rogers surmised that a large percentage of ethnic differences are the result of sociological factors and in these volumes he gathered what he called “the bran of history”—the uncollected, unexamined history of black people—in the hope that these neglected parts of history would become part of the mainstream body of Western history. Drawing on a vast amount of research, Rogers was attempting to point out the absurdity of racial divisions. Indeed his belief in one race—humanity—precluded the idea of several different ethnic races. The series marshals the data he had collected as evidence to prove his underlying humanistic thesis: that people were one large family without racial boundaries. Self-trained and self-published, Rogers and his work were immensely popular and influential during his day, even cited by Malcolm X. The books are presented here in their original editions.

Professor Sir Michael Rutter has been, without question, the most influential and renowned child and adolescent psychiatrist of his era, both nationally and internationally. His innovative thinking and research practice has been at the forefront of research into both biological and psychosocial factors influencing child mental health and has established a developmental approach to integrating these different variables within child psychopathology. Rutter's work has also been marked by its collaborative quality with disciplines other than medicine. A remarkable number of his ideas and findings over the years have stood the test of time. This collection of some of Michael Rutter's most influential and important publications has been made with his collaboration. It includes a number of widely quoted papers from early in his career that are not otherwise easy to access, and covers papers representing the whole range of his research activities from psychiatric classification, psychosocial influences and genetic mechanisms through to the myth of adolescent turmoil. The collection contains a complete bibliography of Michael Rutter's publications to date.
