A brave 'crocoduck' saves his family from becoming duck dinner. Raised from an egg by Mother Duck, Guji Guji is quite content with his life as a duckling, despite the fact that he doesn't look anything like his brothers. Then he meets three nasty creatures who not only convince him that he is, like them, a crocodile, but also try to persuade him to deliver his duck relatives for their dinner. "Chen's vivid characters - the exuberantly befuddled 'crocoduck' and his adopted family, the riotously creepy crocodiles that loom like shadows - are rendered with wit and warmth ... Love overcomes all differences here, and Guji Guji's antics are laugh-out-loud adorable." The New York Times Book Review "Chen's story of love, acceptance and self-discovery gives every sign of becoming a well-worn favourite." Publishers Weekly "This story is a winner! When, after a brief silence once the story is read, comes 'Can we read it again, please?' you know it will be a favourite - and it is." Daily Chronicle

"I found this book exciting, inspiring, and challenging. Some readers will disagree with its breadth and depth, but other readers will keenly seek out and embrace this volume. The book is bound to force further debate. . . .It is an excellent exemplar of the challenges and rewards of the multidisciplinary and internationally multicultural enterprise. I wish I felt optimistic that it might become required reading for all social scientists." --Stephen Small, University of Massachusetts, Amherst "This synthesizing work on status and equality, utilizing a psychocultural approach is one of the most powerful analyses of relationships among the self, ethnicity, gender, status mobility, migration, and status inequality to have been produced by anyone to date. Many years of work on these matters among the Japanese abroad and in America by George DeVos and the recent work by Suarez-Orozco on Central American refugees in American Schools are well reflected in this analysis." --George Spindler, Stanford University The culmination of more than forty years of study, Status Inequality provides a theoretical integration of themes by George De Vos, long an influence in the field of psychological anthropology. With coauthor Marcelo Suarez-Orozco, De Vos explores anthropological, sociological, and psychoanalytical insights into human behavior. Their unified theory synthesizes social structure and personality structure, concepts heretofore seen as diametrically opposed. The authors point to the symbolic nature of groups, the experience of ethnicity and of inequality, and the impact of internal and external variables on the sense of self. Separating the effects of status inequality from other social and psychological determinants of behavior, this intriguing and compelling work discusses the developmental experience of the self. Certain to be a welcome resource for scholars and students alike in psychology, anthropology, status inequality, and cross-cultural research.

As a discipline, psychoanalysis began at the interface of mind and brain and has always been about those most basic questions of biology and psychology: loving, hating, what brings us together as lovers, parents, and friends and what pulls us apart in conflict and hatred.These are the enduring mysteries of life and especially of early development-how young children learn the language of the social world with its intertwined biological, genetic, and experiential roots and how infants translate thousands of intimate moments with their parents into a genuine, intuitive, emotional connection to other persons. Basic developmental neuroscience and psychology has also of late turned to these basic questions of affiliation: of how it is that as humans our most basic concerns are about finding, establishing, preserving, and mourning our relationships. These areas in broad strokes are the substance of mind and brain, and the last decade has brought much new science to the biology of attachment, love, and aggression. These are areas that practicing psychoanalysts have long been immersed in and have much to say about - and contemporary neuroscientists and developmentalists are recognizing the importance of understanding these basic issues at a deeper, and more subjective experiential level. The challenges before us are how to facilitate open discourse and collaborations among these perspectives and practitioners that often work at very different levels of discourse. This volume is not only a first step in that process but also, through the themes of the chapters and the pairing of discussants, a beginning illustration of how the cross-disciplinary discourse might work.

This is a seven volume treatise on historical dating and scientific arguments regarding the truth or falsehoods in currently accepted historical concepts. It claims the 16th century as the time during which history was created by medieval scribes and cemented by the power of the ecclesial authorities. It is theorized for example that Jesus was actually born in 1053 A.D. and crucified in 1086 A.D.; the Old Testament refers to medieval events and the Apocalyse was written after 1486 A.D.

'This is the istry of Moo Pak,' writes a schoolboy, struggling with his assignment as he sits in the Great Hall of Moor Park, now a secondary school. Once the home of Sir William Temple, here Swift wrote the Tale of the Tub and tutored the nine-year-old Stella. Later the building was a lunatic asylum, a college of theology, a code-breaking centre (during World War II), and an institute for the study of primate behaviour. So Jack Toledano, a Sephardic Jew from Egypt and ex-University lecturer in English, tells his friend Damien Anderson in the course of innumerable walks through the parks and waterways of London during the 1980s. Toledano is writing a history of Moor Park which is also a history of himself and his times, of the Jews and the English. Moo Pak unfolds that history in an eloquent and breathless sweep, as Anderson strives to record what Toledano says and what he knows of his friend, a sweep that takes in man's relation to the great apes, the nature of language, Classicism and Romanticism, Swift, Pope, madness, despair and death. Moo Pak is a palimpsest not only of themes that have preoccupied Gabriel Josipovici in the past twenty-five years but of our civilisation itself, its dreams, achievements and repressions. And it is a simple, moving tale of friendship and its aftermath.
