The Marvel Cinematic Universe--comprised of films, broadcast television and streaming series and digital shorts--has generated considerable fan engagement with its emphasis on socially relevant characters and plots. Beyond considerable box office achievements, the success of Marvel's movie studios has opened up dialogue on social, economic and political concerns that challenge established values and beliefs. This collection of new essays examines those controversial themes and the ways they represent, construct and distort American culture.

Britain's prisons have dealt with a vast range of inmates over the years - from infamous criminals to celebrities to the wrongfully convicted. Banged Up now tells the story of six of Britain's most notorious jails - Durham, Wandsworth, Pentonville, Wormwood Scrubs, Dartmoor and Holloway - and of the men and women who entered their gates, sometimes stood on their scaffolds and occasionally vanished before their time. There are famous faces like Oswald Mosley, Dr Crippen, Ruth Ellis and Frankie Fraser as well as the man who shot Martin Luther King Jr, the wartime double agent contacting Nazi spymasters with a transmitter in his cell, the doctor hanged as he smiled at the farewells of lovers, the con who defied a gangland godfather, aristocrats, arsonists and murderers. They have all been here, and the screws who guard Britain's prisons have seen it all. Banged Up uncovers the real, human, inside story of what really goes on behind the forbidding prison entrances and cell doors of Durham, Wandsworth, Pentonville, Wormwood Scrubs, Dartmoor and Holloway and reveals new stories of what life behind bars was really like for those unfortunate enough to hear the cell doors slam behind them.

Dorina Basarab is a dhampir—half-human, half-vampire. Subject to uncontrollable rages, most dhampirs live very short, very violent lives. But so far, Dory has managed to maintain her sanity by unleashing her anger on those demons and vampires who deserve killing... Dory is used to fighting hard and nasty. So when she wakes up in a strange scientific lab with a strange man standing over her, her first instinct is to take his head off. Luckily, the man is actually the master vampire Louis-Cesare, so he’s not an easy kill. It turns out that Dory had been working with a Vampire Senate task force on the smuggling of magical items and weaponry out of Faerie when she was captured and brought to the lab. But when Louis-Cesare rescues her, she has no memory of what happened to her. To find out what was done to her—and who is behind it—Dory will have to face off with fallen angels, the maddest of mad scientists, and a new breed of vampires that are far worse than undead…

Now available in paper for the first time, this classic text is about how an analyst analyzes. Rooted in the theory of psychoanalytic self psychology as put forth by Heinz Kohut and his colleagues, Treating the Self focuses on the application of the self-psychological concept of the psyche to the actual conduct of psychoanalytic treatment. The result is not a "how-to" approach, but rather a volume that suggests a theory of treatment and offers guidelines for creative ways of thinking about therapy. Written by Ernest Wolf, a close collaborator of Heinz Kohut, this is a personal account of the process of self psychology presented by one of the foremost experts in the field.

Die Reiter der Apokalypse im Kampf gegen eine Verschwörung, die die ganze Welt ins Chaos stürzen könnte! Einige Jahrtausende vor den Geschehnissen von Darksiders und Darksiders II, wurden zwei der gefürchteten Reiter der Apokalypse, Tod und Krieg, damit beauftragt, eine Gruppe Abtrünniger zu stoppen, die die Kammer der Macht ausfindig machen wollen: Einen Ort, an dem Waffen von unvorstellbarer Macht und Grausamkeit verborgen liegen. Damit wäre der brüchige Waffenstillstand zwischen Himmel und Hölle zum Scheitern verurteilt ... Darksiders: Kammer der Macht entstand in enger Zusammenarbeit mit den Teams von Darksiders II, Vigil und THQ. Dieser Roman gibt einen aufregenden Einblick in die Geschichte und die Welt der Reiter und beleuchtet auf neue Weise die unzerstörbare Bindung zwischen Krieg und Tod. An dieser Stelle würde Ihnen Ari Marmell nun gerne alles über die vielen esoterischen Jobs erzählen, die er bereits absolviert hat und über die spannenden Abenteuer berichten, die er auf dem Weg zum Schriftsteller bestehen musste. Unglücklicherweise ist das Aufregendste, was er bislang geleistet hat, seine Arbeit für Dungeons Dragons und andere Rollenspiele. Und natürlich das Bücherschreiben. Von ihm stammen sowohl Der Dämon des Kriegers und Die Tochter des Kriegers als auch eine ganze Reihe weiterer Geschichten, wie z. B. Die Horde: Die Schlacht von Morthûl, Agents of Artifice (Magic: The Gathering) und Thief's Covenant: A Widdershins Adventure. Marmell lebt derzeit in einem Apartment, das beinahe so chaotisch ist wie sein Unterbewusstsein. Er teilt selbiges (die Wohnung, nicht das Unterbewusstsein, auch wenn es manchmal anders scheinen mag) mit seiner Frau George und zwei Katzen, denen man vielleicht mal einen Lautstärkeregler einbauen sollte.
