Redford. McQueen. Belmondo. When most of us think of a well-dressed man, it's not a super-model that first comes to mind, but a movie star, such as one of these cinematic legends. For almost a century now, movies have served as vivid records of fashion's most memorable trends, and leading men have set the bar for the well-dressed and stylish guy in every era. Now men's fashion expert Marion Maneker tackles with flair men's biggest sartorial problem: lack of imagination. This step-by-step manual shows how any man can easily go from gauche to Goldfinger with simple, inspirational suggestions gleaned from such favorite screen icons as Astaire, Brando and Connery. With wit and elegance, Maneker offers practical instructions and indispensable insight. Whether you admire the raffish courage of Indiana Jones or aspire to the suspendered ruthlessness of Wall Street, Maneker will show you how to do it right. With his tips, any guy can become a leading man.

In 1924, Sam McGowan tossed aside the social life he was leading in Charleston, South Carolina, and took the post as the only rural mail carrier at Frogmore on St. Helena Island. Charleston's social activities, mandated by his birthright, proved to be a bit dull for an adventurous man like Sam. Instead, he took his new French bride and moved to a locale inhabited by five thousand Gullah-speaking African-Americans who were only one or two generations away from slavery. The majority of these island natives had never left the confines of St. Helena. For the next thirty-one years, he was entrusted with their secrets, joys and sorrows. To Sam, Charleston was a distant memory.

For over a century, the Ihanzu of north-central Tanzania have conducted rainmaking rites. As with similar rites found across sub-Saharan Africa, these rites are replete with gender, sexual, and fertility motifs. Social scientists have typically explained such things as symbolizing human bodies and the act of procreation. But what happens when our interlocutors deny such symbolic explanations, when they insist that rain rites and the gender and sexual motifs in them do not symbolize anything but rather aim simply to bring rain? Beyond Bodies examines Ihanzu sensibilities about gender through a fine-grained ethnography of rainmaking rites. It considers the meaning of ritual practices in a society in which gender is not as bound to the body as it is in the Euro-American imagination. Engaging with recent anthropological and gender theory, this book crucially calls into question how social scientists have explained gender symbolism in myriad ethnographic and historical studies across Africa.

The aim of the IV International Symposium on Hamiltonian Systems and Celestial Mechanics, HAMSYS-2001 was to join top researchers in the area of Celestial Mechanics, Hamiltonian systems and related topics in order to communicate new results and look forward for join research projects. For PhD students, this meeting offered also the opportunity of personal contact to help themselves in their own research, to call as well and promote the attention of young researchers and graduated students from our scientific community to the above topics, which are nowadays of interest and relevance in Celestial Mechanics and Hamiltonian dynamics. A glance to the achievements in the area in the last century came as a consequence of joint discussions in the workshop sessions, new problems were presented and lines of future research were delineated. Specific discussion topics included: New periodic orbits and choreographies in the n-body problem, singularities in few body problems, central configurations, restricted three body problem, geometrical mechanics, dynamics of charged problems, area preserving maps and Arnold diffusion.

This textbook provides a complete overview of motivation and emotion, using an overarching organizational scheme of how biological, psychological, and environmental sources become motivation—the inducement of behavior, feelings, and cognition. It combines classic studies with current research and uses numerous real-world examples to engage the student and make often-difficult theoretical concepts come to life. By understanding and applying the principles of motivation described in the text, students will not only discover insights into what motivates their own behavior but also how to instigate self-change. Thoroughly revised and updated throughout, this fifth edition provides a major review of recent research, with over 225 new references, including expansion in the areas of goal motivation and emotion psychology. Other updated topics include new findings and interpretations on how evolution affects our preferences, how personality traits determine motivation, and how self-control depends on a cost/benefit analysis. The addition of individual chapter glossaries and an increased number of links to additional resources supplement student learning. This textbook is suitable as a primary text for courses on motivation. For additional resources, please consult the companion website at www.routledge.com/cw/deckers.
