Final contributions to the problems & methods of psycho-analysis by Sándor Ferenczi( )

15 editions published between 1955 and 2002 in English and German and held by 1,107 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This final volume includes "Confusion of Tongues Between Children and Adults" in which Ferenczi formulates his controversal ideas on childhood sexuality, and the conflict between the languages of tenderness and passion. First published in 1955, this book contains papers written by Ferenczi during his last years and some of his unpublished notes. It demonstrates Ferenczi's combination of great clinical understanding and an almost uncanny insight into unconscious process. Among the forty important items included are papers on the following: "Freud's Influence on Medicine", "Laughter", "Epileptic Fits", "Dirigible Dreams", "Philosophy and Psycho-Analysis", "Paranoia", "The Interpretation of Tunes Which Come into One's Head" and "The Genesis of Jus Primae Noctis"."--Provided by publisher
Psychoanalysis of the sexual functions of women by Helene Deutsch( )

6 editions published in 1991 in English and held by 1,090 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the author's second work into female psychology and sexuality. The first volume of her influential work, The Psychology of Women, appeared in 1944, to be followed by the second volume a year later. When the author came to consider the relationship of The Psychology of Women to Psychoanalysis of the Sexual Functions of Women, first published almost twenty years before, she observed: "It is evident that the first publication already contains all the building stones for the latter. What was first conceived by intuition and observation of a small number of analyzed women was later supported and confirmed by thirty years of experience"
Orpheus in Paris : Offenbach and the Paris of his time by Siegfried Kracauer( Book )

14 editions published between 1937 and 2016 in English and German and held by 760 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

La 4ème couverture indique : "La biographie d'Offenbach est avant tout celle d'une époque : telle est la conviction qui sous-tend le propos de Siegfried Kracauer dans un ouvrage devenu classique depuis sa première parution en 1937. Protagoniste de ces pages adminrables, autant que le musicien et son cercle, autant que l'opérette elle-même, forme clef d'une nouvelle sensibilité et phénomène culturel unique : la société du Second Empire dans son ensemble, avec sa noblesse divisée, son aristocratie financière, sa population d'artistes, de bohémines, de journalistes et de lorettes, l'émergence des masses, l'importance prise par les salons, théâtres, cafés et passages, la célébration mercantile des expositions culturelles. Sur ce fond, vient se détacher la personnalité d'Offenbach, personnage humoral et contradictoire, dont Kracauer analyse, en même temps que les espoirs et les triomphes, la conscience malheureuse d'intellectuel d'exil : reflet de bien d'autres anxiétés que l'histoire ne devait que trop vérifier. Précédant les textes et les projets de Walter Benjamin, Jacques Offenbach ou le secret du Second Empire fut l'un des premiers ouvrages à explorer la typologie du flâneur et de l'homme des boulevards, amorçant une réfléxion dont nous n'avons pas fini d'épuiser les richesses"

Secret Tibet by Fosco Maraini( Book )

12 editions published between 1952 and 2002 in English and Undetermined and held by 363 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Fosco Maraini visited Tibet in 1937 and again in 1948. In 1951 he published Secret Tibet, an account that was a synthesis of the two journeys. This book is not a guidebook: the author's studies and journeys concentrated on the valleys and passes that bring travellers from India via Sikkim on their way to the forbidden city of Lhasa. Maraini spent much time in villages and monasteries along the way, at Gangtok, Phari, Iwang and Gyantse in particular. Lhasa he never reached. So how can he call his book "Secret Tibet"? Because he arrived commanding a serviceable knowledge of the language and with no need for interpreters was able to make a warm and fulfilling human contact with men and women representing the very soul of the nation - lamas, scholars, merchants, herdsmen, peasants, children, villains and even princesses. Above all he penetrates the secrets that make Tibetan Buddhism not only the sheet anchor for the nation's sense of identity but indeed a religion and philosophy as intriguing as it is paradoxical. The photographs taken by the author now stand in many instances as a unique record of religious artefacts irrecoverably destroyed

Cocaine by Pitigrilli( Book )

3 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 128 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Paris in the 1920s - dizzy and decadent. Where a young man can make a fortune with his wits ... unless he is led into temptation. Cocaine's dandified hero Tito Arnaudi invents lurid scandals and gruesome deaths, and sells these stories to the newspapers. But his own life becomes even more outrageous than his press reports when he acquires three demanding mistresses. Elegant, witty and wicked, Pitigrilli's classic novel was first published in Italian in 1921 and charts the comedy and tragedy of a young man's downfall and the lure of a bygone era. The novel's descriptions of sex and drug use prompted church authorities to place it on a list of forbidden books, while appealing to filmmaker Rainer Werner Fassbinder who wrote a script based on the tale. Cocaine retains its venom even today
