*Now a New York Times Best Seller* Over the course of two decades, John Hargrove worked with 20 different whales on two continents and at two of SeaWorld's U.S. facilities. For Hargrove, becoming an orca trainer fulfilled a childhood dream. However, as his experience with the whales deepened, Hargrove came to doubt that their needs could ever be met in captivity. When two fellow trainers were killed by orcas in marine parks, Hargrove decided that SeaWorld's wildly popular programs were both detrimental to the whales and ultimately unsafe for trainers. After leaving SeaWorld, Hargrove became one of the stars of the controversial documentary Blackfish. The outcry over the treatment of SeaWorld's orca has now expanded beyond the outlines sketched by the award-winning documentary, with Hargrove contributing his expertise to an advocacy movement that is convincing both federal and state governments to act. In Beneath the Surface, Hargrove paints a compelling portrait of these highly intelligent and social creatures, including his favorite whales Takara and her mother Kasatka, two of the most dominant orcas in SeaWorld. And he includes vibrant descriptions of the lives of orcas in the wild, contrasting their freedom in the ocean with their lives in SeaWorld. Hargrove's journey is one that humanity has just begun to take-toward the realization that the relationship between the human and animal worlds must be radically rethought.

The philosophy of deep ecology originated in the 1970s with the Norwegian philosopher Arne Naess and has since spread around the world. Its basic premises are a belief in the intrinsic value of nonhuman nature, a belief that ecological principles should dictate human actions and moral evaluations, an emphasis on noninterference into natural processes, and a critique of materialism and technological progress.This book approaches deep ecology as a philosophy, not as a political, social, or environmental movement. In part I, the authors compare deep ecology's philosophical ideas with other positions and debates in environmental philosophy and to other schools of thought such as social ecology, ecofeminism, and moral pluralism. In part II, they investigate the connections between deep ecology and other contemporary world views, such as continental philosophy, postmodernism, and non-Western philosophical traditions. The first anthology on deep ecology that is not primarily the work of the movement's followers, Beneath the Surface offers a rigorous assessment of deep ecology's strengths and weaknesses as a philosophical position.Contributors : John Clark, Deane Curtin, Arran Gare, William Grey, Mathew Humphrey, Knut Jacobsen, Eric Katz, Andrew Light, Jonathan Maskit, Val Plumwood, David Rothenberg, Ariel Salleh, Bron Taylor, Michael Zimmerman.

This volume is an introductory text to the individual and organizational dynamics by an author with extensive experience in the field. It examines the unconscious processes of human behavior that affect all organizations and institutions. This volume endeavors to provide an explanation for these unconscious processes, in language as simple as that used in other traditional organizational behavior books and in the context of known and recognized conscious behavior. This often-neglected topic is examined with the help of various illuminating case studies. Using a systems psychodynamic perspective, this volume is aimed at those who are currently employed as managers or consultants, students of management, and others with the opportunity to develop knowledge skills, and ability in an area of organizational behavior, which has been largely inaccessible to the majority. "The aim of this book is to expose and explore something of the world which exists beneath the surface of individuals, groups, organizations, and institutions; to make available for consideration and meaning-making some of those aspects of our lives that, are not normally within our awareness. In doing so, the book shall attempt to show that although the phenomena of this world beneath the surface are not part of our conscious awareness, they nevertheless have a constant and active influence on everything we do." -- From the Preface

While Oletha excitedly describes Leon, a high school athlete who is handsome, muscular, and a soon-to-be-lover, Connie's mind is occupied with thoughts of Melvin, a young churchgoer. But on a hot summer evening while walking to the country store, Oletha and Connie realize that everything in life can change in an instant. Leon stops to offer them a ride and asks Connie who has always been mesmerized with Oletha's descriptions of the attractive athlete to ride up front. As an already hot summer night becomes even more heated, Connie must face a monumental decision. Torn between the advice of her churchgoing mother and the advice of her best friend, Connie knows that the choice she makes is going to bring unpredictable changes to not only her life, but the lives of others.

With a per capita publishing rate of more that three times that of the United States, Slovenia has a long and storied literary history, from the legendary 9th-century Freising Manuscripts to postmodern masterpieces by Igor Bratoz. Continuing that tradition, Angels Beneath the Surface, the first collection of Slovene fiction to be published in English outside of Slovenia since 1994, offers a rich sampling of Slovene short stories. The thirteen tales here represent a wide array of voices and writing styles among the country's renowned–and emergent–writers. Written between 1990 and 2005, the selections in Angels Beneath the Surface together comprise a vivid snapshot of Slovene literary consciousness at the turn of the millennium. These authors mine their culture for often startling insights in stories that range from wicked variations on fairy tales to dour romances to skewerings of the bureaucratic state. Recent articles in The New Yorker, The New York Times Book Review, and other prominent publications attest to renewed interest in European literature in translation, and this collection is an incisive entry in the genre.
