O pesadelo de Mana Neyestani começa em 2006, quando ele desenha uma conversa entre uma criança e uma barata no suplemento infantil de um jornal iraniano. O inseto utiliza uma palavra azeri, e os azeris, povo de origem turca do norte do Irã há muito oprimido pelo regime central, se sentem provocados. Para alguns deles, o desenho de Mana é o estopim que faz inflamar os ânimos e um excelente pretexto para desencadearem um levante. O regime de Teerã precisa de um bode expiatório, e Mana e o editor do jornal são detidos e mandados para a prisão 209, uma seção não oficial da prisão de Evin, sob a administração da VEVAK, o Ministério da Inteligência e da Segurança Nacional. Ao termo de três meses de detenção, Mana obtém alguns dias de liberdade provisória. É então que decide fugir com sua mulher. Comovente e perturbador, Uma metamorfose iraniana é um mergulho em apneia no sistema totalitário kafkiano instaurado pelo regime iraniano.
A cockroach landed Iranian cartoonist Mana Neyestani in jail and turned his life upside down.
"É uma verdade universalmente reconhecida que um homem solteiro, de posse de boa fortuna, deve estar atrás de uma esposa." Elizabeth e suas quatro irmãs estão impossibilitadas de herdar a propriedade de seu velho pai e enfrentam a ameaça do despejo. As irmãs devem garantir sua segurança financeira por meio do casamento, mas nossa heroína tem outros planos. Ela fez votos de se casar somente por amor. Seu olhar acaba capturado pelo distinto Sr. Darcy, mas quem irá salvar os Bennets? Elizabeth deve se casar por amor ou deve salvar sua família? Jane Austen se referia a Orgulho e preconceito (1813), o primeiro romance que escreveu, como seu "filho querido" - e gerações de leitores lhe têm dado um cantinho em seus corações desde então. A atração irresistível que ela retrata, entre a vivaz e independente Elizabeth Bennet e o austero e solene Sr. Darcy, se insere entre as maiores, mais românticas e mais engraçadas histórias de amor já contadas.
Man and His Symbols
Author: C. G. Jung
Man and His Symbols owes its existence to one of Jung's own dreams. The great psychologist dreamed that his work was understood by a wide public, rather than just by psychiatrists, and therefore he agreed to write and edit this fascinating book. Here, Jung examines the full world of the unconscious, whose language he believed to be the symbols constantly revealed in dreams. Convinced that dreams offer practical advice, sent from the unconscious to the conscious self, Jung felt that self-understanding would lead to a full and productive life. Thus, the reader will gain new insights into himself from this thoughtful volume, which also illustrates symbols throughout history. Completed just before his death by Jung and his associates, it is clearly addressed to the general reader. Praise for Man and His Symbols “This book, which was the last piece of work undertaken by Jung before his death in 1961, provides a unique opportunity to assess his contribution to the life and thought of our time, for it was also his firsat attempt to present his life-work in psychology to a non-technical public. . . . What emerges with great clarity from the book is that Jung has done immense service both to psychology as a science and to our general understanding of man in society, by insisting that imaginative life must be taken seriously in its own right, as the most distinctive characteristic of human beings.”—Guardian “Straighforward to read and rich in suggestion.”—John Barkham, Saturday Review Syndicate “This book will be a resounding success for those who read it.”—Galveston News-Tribune “A magnificent achievement.”—Main Currents “Factual and revealing.”—Atlanta Times

"First published in the UK, 2013"--Colophon.
Author: Carl Gustav Jung
Publisher: Editora Vozes Limitada
O décimo terceiro volume da coleção Obra Completas de C. G. Jung apresenta a concordância entre os símbolos do mundo das imagens do inconsciente e os símbolos da alquimia. Jung mostrou que as projeções alquimistas constituíam apenas um caso especial o pensamento em geral, e que também o processo da individuação se parecia com o caminho que os alquimistas já haviam trilhado a seu modo sem sua época. Assim, o autor não trouxe à luz do dia aspectos ocultos da ciência alquímica, mas também "o correspondente histórico à psicologia do inconsciente".

In Praise of Meekness
Author: Norberto Bobbio, Teresa Chataway
In this important volume, the leading political theorist and philosopher Norberto Bobbio confronts some of the most enduring moral questions of our time. Written over the last two decades of the twentieth century, the essays in this volume develop some of the central themes in Bobbio's moral and political philosophy. They also reflect his longstanding civil commitment to liberty, democracy, peace and equality. The opening essay, 'In praise of meekness', analyses the virtue of meekness in its individual and social aspects. It identifies the meek person with the nonviolent, and meekness with the refusal to exercise violence against anyone. Meekness, therefore, is a non-political virtue - it is the antithesis of politics. The volume also addresses the persistent classical problem of 'reason of state', as well as the more contemporary questions of tolerance and truth, racism, prejudice and ethics. The problem of evil in the modern world is also discussed. All the essays display the sensitivity and depth of understanding that characterize Bobbio's writings on current debates and historical controversies. The book will be invaluable reading for all students and scholars of politics, as well as those who are interested in the debates surrounding morals, ethics and law.
Author: Kalle Lasn
Publisher: Harper Collins
America is no longer a country but a multimillion-dollar brand, says Kalle Lasn and his fellow "culture jammers". The founder of Adbusters magazine, Lasn aims to stop the branding of America by changing the way information flows; the way institutions wield power; the way television stations are run; and the way the food, fashion, automobile, sports, music, and culture industries set agendas. With a courageous and compelling voice, Lasn deconstructs the advertising culture and our fixation on icons and brand names. And he shows how to organize resistance against the power trust that manages the brands by "uncooling" consumer items, by "dermarketing" fashions and celebrities, and by breaking the "media trance" of our TV-addicted age. A powerful manifesto by a leading media activist, Culture Jam lays the foundations for the most significant social movement of the early twenty-first century -- a movement that can change the world and the way we think and live.
