13 editions published between 1983 and 1990 in 3 languages and held by 962 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Drawing on a wide range of contemporary accounts and modern scholarship, Schwartz captures the very texture of the vanished world of eighteenth-century London--from fops to cock-fights, from the pleasures and the domestic life of squires, tradesmen, and artists to the violence and filth of the brothels, the hospitals, and the prisons

After the death of literature by Richard B Schwartz( Book )

8 editions published in 1997 in English and Undetermined and held by 386 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Schwartz speculates that Johnson - who revered hard facts, a wide cultural base, and common sense - would have exhibited scant patience with the heavily academic approaches currently favored in the study of literature. He considers it probable that the combatants in the early struggles of the culture wars are losing energy and that, in the wake of Alvin Kernan's declaration of the death of literature, new battlegrounds are developing. Ironically admiring the orchestration and staging of battles old and new - "superb" he calls them - he characterizes the entire culture war as a "battle between straw men, carefully constructed by the combatants to sustain a pattern of polarization that could be exploited to provide continuing professional advancement."

"A California congressman is impaled on an escalator in a London tube station and a big-shot real estate agent is poisoned on a Disneyland ride. Unusual sword-like murder weapons, public settings, and expert execution connect these two brutal homicides. Worlds apart from the sloppy street crime he usually deals with, LAPD lieutenant Frank White can't help admiring the killer's precision and perfect planning. But with no witnesses and little evidence, how can he solve this far from ordinary case? With help from his best friend, private investigator Jack Grant, he uncovers a sordid connection between the victims and a heinous crime never brought to light

The wounds that heal : heroism and human development by Judith A Schwartz( Book )

5 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 61 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Theories of human development characteristically include a series of stages through which individuals are expected to pass if they are to achieve wholeness and happiness. Whether explicitly or not, such theories privilege 'normalcy.' Heroes, on the other hand, are commonly wounded individuals whose developmental 'disabilities' are ultimately the source of their personal success and heroism. The Wounds that Heal examines developmental theory in the light of the heroic narrative and argues that such theory should be adjusted to accommodate the experience of those who are, in many ways, our principal role models. Four individuals are examined in depth: Jane Austen, T.E. Lawrence, Winston Churchill, and George S. Patton, Jr. The study draws on the experience of a host of other individuals, both historic and fictional, and includes materials designed to aid readers in defining their own views of the heroic as well as to become heroes or heroines in their own lives"--Page 4 of cover
