Katz on Dogs

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=339585&cjsku=339585...
In a nation where our love of dogs keeps growing and dog ownership has reached an all-time high, confusion about dogs and their behavioral problems is skyrocketing. Many dogs are out of control, untrained, chewing up furniture, taking medication for anxiety, and biting millions of people a year. Now, in this groundbreaking new guide, Jon Katz, a leading authority on the human-canine bond, offers a powerful and practical philosophy for living with a dog, from the moment we decide to get one to the sad day when one dies. Conventional training methods often fail dog owners, but Katz argues that we know our dogs better than anyone else possibly could, and therefore we are well suited to train them. It is imperative, he says, that we think rationally and responsibly about how we choose, train, and live with the dogs we love, and the more we learn about ourselves, the better we can recognize their wonderful animal natures. Misinterpreting dogs is a profound obstacle to understanding them. Katz believes that both people and dogs are uniquea chow differs from a Lab just as a city dweller differs from a farmerand he describes how such individuality isn't addressed by even the best and most popular training methods. Not every training theory is for everyone, notes Katz, but almost anyone can train a dog and live with him comfortably. Katz on Dogs is filled with no-nonsense advice and answers to such key questions as: What kind of dog should I have? Is there is a specific breed or kind of dog for my personality, family, or living situation? What is the best way to train a dog? Can I trust my vet? How often (and for how long) can a dog be left alone? Is it preferable to have only one dog, or are more better? What are the secrets to successful housebreaking? What are my dogs thinking, if anything? How can I walk my dog instead of having her walk me? Is it ever okay to give away a dog you love? When is it time to put my dog down? Katz draws from his own experience, his interactions with thousands of dog owners, vets, breeders, dog rescue workers, trainers, and behaviorists, and he has tested his approach with volunteer dog owners around the country. Their helpful and often inspiring stories illustrate how all of us can live well with our dogs. You can do it, Katz contends. You can live a loving and harmonious life with your dog.

Seine Arbeiten zur Mexikanischen Revolution zhlen zu den grundlegenden Werken ber dieses Thema. Er verstand es, in quellenkritischer Tiefe die Besonderheiten Mexikos in die Weltgeschichte einzuschreiben.

The essays collected in this volume are dedicated to the historian and Latin Americanist Friedrich Katz (1927-2010). They are based on a symposium held in his honour in Vienna in the autumn of 2011 and bring together varying perspectives of his life and work. As one of the great social historians of our time, Friedrich Katz had an encyclopaedic knowledge of the sources relevant to Latin America's twentieth century history. His studies of the Mexican Revolution rank foremost among contributions to the field. More than anyone before he succeeded in relating the specifics of Mexico's history to the broader processes of global history. That same global history impacted repeatedly on Katz' own life: he was forced to leave Vienna as a child and moved with his family to Mexico, via Berlin, Paris and New York; he returned to Vienna after 1945 only to leave again for East Berlin before finally settling in Chicago.

John Oliver Nelson, born to wealth and privilege, spent much of his life giving that wealth away. In this biography, author Rita M. Yeasted narrates the details of Nelsons life as he fulfilled the Gospels mandate of feeding the hungry, clothing the naked, and sheltering the homeless. JON: John Oliver Nelson and the Movement for Power in the Church tells the life story of this man, known as a quick-witted, intelligent, and charming visionary and dreamer, from his birth in 1909 until his death in 1990. A lover of liturgy, music, and fine arts, Nelson is best known as a national leader for the subtle re-empowering of the Church in our culture and for the founding of the nations first Protestant retreat center, Kirkridge, in the Appalachian Mountains in Bangor, Pennsylvania, in 1942. Begun as a center for the renewal of clergy, Kirkridge soon attracted laity of all faiths. Jack Nelsons influence extended to thousands over his years as Yale Divinity professor, director of Kirkridge, retreat leader, and spiritual director. Scion of one of Pittsburghs most prominent Presbyterian families, Jack died in poverty, but rich in friends. With photographs included, JON and the story it tells presents his legacy to the world.

Martin Walser ist ein unbequemer Autor. Diese Eigenschaft kam in den letzten Jahren vor allem in der Walser-Bubis-Debatte um die Erinnerung an den Holocaust und in seiner Abrechnung mit der Literaturkritik in dem Roman Tod eines Kritikers zum Ausdruck. Dass Martin Walser seine literarische Produktion durch eine intensive Beschftigung mit dem Werk von Kollegen und die theoretische Auseinandersetzung mit Gattungsfragen begleitet, ist kaum bekannt. Der Sammelband geht dieser unbekannten Seite des Autors nach und zeigt Facetten der kritischen Auseinandersetzung in seinem Werk auf.

Katz or Cats

www.ebooks.com/cj.asp?IID=209549525&cjsku=209549525...
Katz or Cats, or How Jesus Became My Rival in Love follows John, a book editor who meets an enigmatic man named Katz on his daily commute into New York. True to form, Katz has a book to pitchnot his own, but his brother's, an identical twin also named Katz. The novel begins with another meeting on another train: brother Katz chances on a woman named Maria, who carries a pocket Bible and is missing the top digit of her ring finger. The two embark on a whirlwind affair, alternately driven together and apart by their passion for each other and Maria's religious fervor. But the story seems to change as soon as Katz tells it, and Katz himself has a great confession to make. As the lies that bind the tale together grow to new proportion, John comes to doubt the line between truth and fiction, as well as everything he thinks he knows about the man beside him on the train. With the lyrical joy and lighthearted wordplay that have won him critical acclaim, Curt Leviant's latest novel explores the very fabric of storytelling and whether life, like fiction, can be in constant flux.
