Millions of men and women struggle with disordered eating. Some stand at the mirror wondering how they can face the day when they look so fat. Other over-exercise, binge, or purge. Many skip meals, go on diet after diet, or cut out entire food groups. Still they are never thin enough. While 1 in 20 adults have experienced full-blown anorexia, at least 1 in 20 has exhibited some of the key symptoms. Many suffer from the effects of anorexia, bulimia, and binge eating disorder, but most never address the issue because they don't fully meet the diagnostic criteria. If this is the case for you, then you may be what we call "almost anorexic." Drawing on the latest research, this groundbreaking book combines a psychologist's clinical experience with a patient's personal recovery story. Almost Anorexic will give you the skills to understand the symptoms of almost anorexia; determine if your (or your loved one's) relationship with food is a problem; gain insight on how to intervene with a loved one; discover scientifically proven strategies to change unhealthy eating patterns; learn when and how to get professional help when it's needed. Jennifer J. Thomas, PhD., is an Assistant Professor of Psychology in the Department of Psychiatry at Harvard medical School, and on staff at Massachusetts General Hospital specializing in eating disorders. Jennifer Schaefer is an internationally known author and speaker whose work has helped change the face of recovery from eating disorders. Her books include Life without Ed and Goodbye Ed, Hello Me. The Almost Effect Series? presents books written by Harvard Medical School faculty and other experts who offer guidance on common behavioral and physical problems falling in the spectrum between normal health and a full-blown medical condition. These are the first publications to help general readers recognize and address these problems.

Category change, broadly defined as the shift from one word class to another, is often studied as part of other changes, such as grammaticalization or lexicalization, but not in its own right. This volume offers a survey of different types of category change and their properties, e.g. abrupt versus gradual changes, morphological versus syntactic changes, or context-independent versus context-sensitive changes. The purpose of this collection of papers is to explore the concepts of linguistic category and category change from the perspective of Construction Grammar. Using data from a variety of languages, the authors address a number of themes that are central to current theorizing about category change, such as the question of whether or not categories should be considered discrete entities, how new categories arise, or whether category change can be considered as the emergence of a new construction, i.e. a new form-meaning pairing. The novel approach advanced in this volume will be of interest to historical linguists as well as to general linguists working on the nature of linguistic categories.

A treasure house of Gothic, baroque and modernist architecture, Prague is also a city of icons and symbols: statues, saints and signs reveal a turbulent history of religious and cultural conflict. As Kafka's nightmare city and home of the Good Soldier Svejk, the Czech capital also produced two of the twentieth century's emblematic writers. Richard Burton explores this metropolis of theatrical allusion, in which politics and drama have always been intertwined. His interpretation of the city's cultural past and present encompasses opera and rock music, puppetry and cinema, surrealism and socialist realism.

Includes killer's confession Slaughter On A Shoestring On October 29, 1997, hooker Andrea "Slick" Hendrix's, beaten, naked body was discovered in a roadside ditch near Stewartsville, Indiana. With no leads for police to follow, the case eventually went cold, but it wouldn't stay that way. In 2003, sadistic sexual predator Joseph W. Brown claimed to have strangled Hendrix with his favorite murder weapon: a shoelace from a woman's size-8 shoe. Hard Luck Ginger Gasaway, 53, met Brown at a Gambler's Anonymous meeting. She didn't know that when she took up with him, she was gambling with her life. On August 30, 2000, Brown murdered Gasaway and scattered her body parts across three Indiana counties. For this grisly crime, he would be sentenced to life in prison without parole. But it wouldn't be his first time behind bars. . . How Many More? In 1977, Brown had been sentenced to life in prison for kidnapping and armed robbery. In 1995, he was released despite the fact that he'd beaten a fellow inmate nearly to death. Brown later confessed that during the next five years, he indulged in a seven-state rampage of torture and murder, his victims female hitchhikers and prostitutes. Now doing time in Wabash Valley Corrections Center, Brown maintains that he murdered no less than thirteen other women. 16 Pages Of Shocking Photos

PEN/Faulkner Award Finalist: A novel that is “at once a story about a boy growing up in two cultures, a love story, and a mystery” (The Boston Globe). Winner of the Sue Kaufman Prize for First Fiction, The Long Night of White Chickens announced Francisco Goldman’s arrival as a major literary talent. It is both a suspenseful mystery and a tale of two worlds that plumbs the darkest depths of the relationship between the United States and Guatemala. Goldman tells the story of Roger Graetz, raised in a Boston suburb by an aristocratic Guatemalan mother and Jewish father, and Flor de Mayo, the beautiful young Guatemalan orphan who lives with the family as a maid. Similar in age, Roger and Flor become close, and remain so even after she leaves to attend college at Wellesley. After graduation, however, Flor returns home to Guatemala City, where she heads a local orphanage that arranges international adoptions. When she’s murdered, Roger is stunned and can’t believe the rumors he hears about her life. Years later, he will travel to Guatemala to uncover the circumstances around Flor’s mysterious death in “a wonderful book” that is as “complex as history, funny as love, painful as death” (The Washington Post Book World). “A richly layered, genre-busting novel that shuttles between suburban Boston and Guatemala City and devours everything in its path.” —Jay McInerney

In The Two Finger Diet: How the Media Has Duped Women into Hating Themselves, author Benjamin Straight delivers a compelling sociological examination of how the American media advertises to women, a key marketing demographic ruthlessly targeted since 1870. The author traces the historical roots of this phenomenon and its development to the present, carefully scrutinizing the manipulative tactics companies have constructed to pitch the 'beauty myth' to American women. His research addresses myriad themes on the commodification of American women, including: What is the 'perfect' female physique and who is defining it? What institutions that have emerged to combat the 'obesity plague' and provide products for aesthetic enhancement? Straight ultimately concludes that the image of the ideal female is purposefully unattainable and leads to a malady of personal and social problems; these include eating disorders, excessive and damaging financial expenditures, and lives diminished by a sense of inadequacy. Furthermore, much of their liberty is mere illusion; their happiness is largely defined and constricted by media and advertising paradigms attempting to make American women feel inferior in order to sell them products. As such, American women will not be truly liberated until they break from the corporate bottom line.

Très chic Parisian Commissaire Capucine Le Tellier sets off on a hunting holiday that proves deadly for more than just the pheasants. . . Before Capucine and her husband, distinguished food critic Alexandre de Huguelet, even arrive at her oncle's 16th-century château, a fatal hunting accident has upset their idyllic destination. What's meant to be a peaceful bon voyage to the countryside--rustic picnics, dinners en plein air, and of course, a sip or two of Calvados--quickly sours as more "accidents" befall the guests. But the local gendarmerie lack the investigative finesse to draw any conclusions, let alone suspects, forcing Capucine to puzzle out the crimes herself. And when the bodies lead to a celebrated cattle ranch, the stakes rise beyond small-town grudges to the struggle surrounding France's most beloved gastronomic traditions. "[A] countryside romp." --Kirkus Reviews Praise for Alexander Campion's Crime Fraiche and The Grave Gourmet "This new series offers a uniquely blended mix of ‘hooks' that will appeal to a wide variety of mystery lovers." --Booklist "A feast of crime with a soupçon of gourmet delight." --RT Book Reviews, 4 Stars, on Crime Fraiche "Full of amusing characters. . .
