Red : the art and science of a colour
Bucklow, Spike, author
London, UK : Reaktion Books, 2016
Introduction -- Animal reds -- Eastern trees -- Fruits of the earth -- Mysterious reds -- Reds for a better life -- Brave new reds -- Crossing the red line -- Red meanings -- Red earth -- Red blood -- Red fire -- Red passions. References -- Bibliography -- Acknowledgements -- Photo acknowledgements -- Index.

Red grabs your attention. Today we associate red with danger, sex, anger and more, yet the color was once so significant that things which have a profound impact upon our lives were widely called red, even though they are often not red at all. The author takes us from a 34,000-year-old shaman burial dress to the iPhone screen, exploring the myriad of purposes we have put red to as well as the materials from which it comes. The pursuit of the color drove medieval alchemy and modern chemistry alike, and red has been found in insects, tree resins, tar, earths, and excitable gases. It is associated with earth, blood and fire, with the holy, with national flags and powerful ideologies. This book is a material and cultural history that makes one see this color afresh, a crucial part of the human visual world.

Masculinities and the adult male prison experience
Sloan, Jennifer, 1985- author
London : Palgrave Macmillan, [2016]
This title critically analyses how men in prison act out their masculine identities and considers how men negotiate their time in prison, which can involve being placed into a feminine position relative to other men, and particularly looks at the subversion of heteronormative gender positionings through bodies, spaces, time, and relationships. Vulnerability is also taken as a key consideration, and men are shown to act out their masculinities for the benefit of an audience that matters to them. However, that audience is shown to be subject to change at any point in time. Using extensive ethnographic data drawn from adult male prisoners, it adopts the viewpoint of the individual prisoner as a frame to consider masculinity.

The selfishness of others : an essay on the fear of narcissism
Dombek, Kristin, 1972- author
New York : Farrar, Straus and Giroux, 2016
The cold -- The epidemic -- The bad boyfriend -- The millennial -- The murderer -- The artist -- The world.

"They're among us, but they are not like us. They manipulate, lie, cheat, and steal. They are irresistibly charming and accomplished, appearing to live in a radiance beyond what we are capable of. But narcissists are empty. No one knows exactly what everyone else is full of--some kind of a soul, or personhood--but whatever it is, experts agree that narcissists do not have it.So goes the popular understanding of narcissism, or NPD (narcissistic personality disorder). And it's more prevalent than ever, according to recent articles in The New York Times, The Atlantic, and Time. In bestsellers like The Narcissism Epidemic, Narcissists Exposed, and The Narcissist Next Door, pop psychologists have armed the normal with tools to identify and combat the vampiric influence of this rising population, while on websites like, thousands of people congregate to swap horror stories about relationships with "narcs."In The Selfishness of Others, the essayist Kristin Dombek provides a clear-sighted account of how a rare clinical diagnosis became a fluid cultural phenomenon, a repository for our deepest fears about love, friendship, and family. She cuts through hysteria in search of the razor-thin line between pathology and common selfishness, writing with robust skepticism toward the prophets of NPD and genuine empathy for those who see themselves as its victims. And finally, she shares her own story in a candid effort to find a path away from the cycle of fear and blame and toward a more forgiving and rewarding life"--

Generations of feeling : a history of emotions, 600-1700
Rosenwein, Barbara H., author
Cambridge, United Kingdom ; Cambridge University Press, 2016
Ancient theories -- Attachment and detachment -- Alcuin's therapy -- Love and treachery -- Thomas's passions -- Theatricality and sobriety -- Gerson's music -- Despair and happiness -- Hobbes's motions.

Generations of Feeling is the first book to provide a comprehensive history of emotions in pre- and early modern Western Europe. Charting the varieties, transformations and constants of human sentiments over the course of eleven centuries, Barbara H. Rosenwein explores the feelings expressed in a wide range of 'emotional communities' as well as the theories that served to inform and reflect their times. Focusing specifically on groups within England and France, chapters address communities as diverse as the monastery of Rievaulx in twelfth-century England and the ducal court of fifteenth-century Burgundy, assessing the ways in which emotional norms and modes of expression respond to, and in turn create, their social, religious, ideological, and cultural environments. Contemplating emotions experienced 'on the ground' as well as those theorized in the treatises of Alcuin, Thomas Aquinas, Jean Gerson and Thomas Hobbes, this insightful study offers a profound new narrative of emotional life in the West.--Publisher description.

Thought in action : expertise and the conscious mind
Montero, Barbara Gail, author
Oxford, United Kingdom : Oxford University Press, 2016
Preface -- Acknowledgments. Introduction: what can a philosopher tell you about expertise? -- "Don't think, dear; just do" and other manifestations of the just-do-it principle -- Just-do-it versus cognition-in-action -- What is an expert? -- Does thinking interfere with doing? -- Thinking fast -- Continuous improvement -- You can't try too hard -- Effortlessness with effort -- The pleasure of movement and the awareness of the self -- The aesthetic experience of expert movement -- Intuition, rationality, and chess expertise -- Sex, drugs, rock and roll, and the meaning of life. Bibliography -- Index.

After exploring some of the contemporary and historical manifestations of the idea that highly accomplished skills are automatic and effortless, the author develops a theory of expertise that emphasizes the role of the conscious mind in expert action. Along the way, she dispels various mythical accounts of experts who proceed without any understanding of what guides their action and analyzes research in both philosophy and psychology that is taken to show that conscious control impedes well practiced skills. She also explores real-life examples of optimal performance - culled from sports, the performing arts, chess, nursing, medicine, the military and elsewhere - and draws from psychology, neuroscience, and literature to create a picture of expertise according to which expert action generally is and ought to be thoughtful, effortful, and reflective.
