Games people play; the psychology of human relationships by Eric Berne( Book )
7 editions published between 1967 and 1995 in German and held by 51 libraries worldwide
Eric Berne developed the technique of transactional analysis in group therapy, and here presents his findings to the general public in a witty and entertaining best-seller. He shows how people can achieve a new self-awareness by analyzing their behavior in terms of "games." People tend to live their lives by consistently playing out certain games in their interpersonal relationships. They play these games for a variety of reasons: to avoid confronting reality, to conceal ulterior motives, to rationalize their activities, or to avoid actual participation. These games--if they are not destructive--are both desirable and necessary, and here Dr. Berne offers an analysis of 36 common games, which he breaks down into seven major categories.--Adapted from publisher description

Europe in the eighteenth century; aristocracy and the bourgeois challenge by George F. E Rudé( Book )
3 editions published between 1978 and 1983 in German and held by 23 libraries worldwide
Europe in the Eighteenth Century is a widely acclaimed social history of Europe in all its aspects: economic, political, diplomatic, military, colonial-expansionist. Crisply and succinctly written, it describes Europe not as a history of individual countries, but in a common context during the three quarters of a century between the death of Louis XIV and the industrial revolution in England and the social and political revolution in France. It presents the development of government, institutions, cities, economies, wars, and the circulation of ideas in terms of social pressures and needs, and stresses the growth, interrelationships, and conflict of social classes as agents of historical change, paying particular attention to the role of popular as well as upper- and middle-class protest as a factor in that change

The ghost in the machine by Arthur Koestler( Book )
1 edition published in 1968 in German and held by 16 libraries worldwide
The phrase 'the ghost in the machine' was coined by Gilbert Ryle in his 1949 book The Concept of Mind, and was intended to point out the absurdity of traditional Cartesian mind-body dualism; presumably there was also an attempt to echo the phrase deus ex machina, or "god from the machine", i.e. an artificial solution to a complex problem. Koestler, in writing The Ghost in the Machine in 1967, appropriated Ryle's phrase, although he had a pretty low opinion of Ryle himself -- he dismissed him as a 'snickering' Oxford don with no knowledge of any of the sciences that would have given his ideas more weight. Ryle nevertheless had the philosopher's gift for analogy, and used a number of metaphors for the mind-body problem, all of which could have supplied titles: they included 'the sealed signal box', 'the two parallel theatres' and 'the horse in the locomotive'

The greatness that was Babylon : a sketch of the ancient civilization of the Tigris-Euphrates Valley by H. W. F Saggs( Book )
3 editions published between 1966 and 1976 in Undetermined and German and held by 14 libraries worldwide
Excavations in Mesopotamia have revealed a large amount of new information relevant to the study of Babylonian civilization. The roots of much of western civilization lie in Babylonia the ancient civilization of south Iraq. Alexander the Great recognized the importance of its heritage and planned to make Babylon his world capital. The splendours and supposed wickedness of Babylon lived on in a tradition transmitted through the Bible and classical writers. The author aims here to reconstruct all aspects of this lost culture, presenting the Babylonians as living people -- showing their eating and drinking habits, their worship, their relationships and lifestyle and so present an integrated picture
