Danse Macabre: Memoir Of A Polish Girl At The Time Of The Russian Revolution (1914-1924) By Irene Rochas
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Memoir of a Polish Girl at the Time of the Russian Revolution (1914-1924). Irene Rochas was born Aniela Tarnowicz in Warsaw in 1906, the youngest child in a large upper middle-class Polish family.... More > With the outbreak of World War I in 1914, Irene and her family were stranded in Moscow, and with the further outbreak of the Bolshevik Revolution, they were able to return to their homeland only after a delay of four years. Irene's rediscovered narrative -- written when she was fifty years old and set in the form of a novel -- is a remembrance of those eventful years of her childhood in Moscow and Warsaw. In this sense, it is truly a "memoir". Yes, "danse macabre" is the dance of death, the last waltz to which we are all invited. But Irene's "Danse Macabre" -- with its inquisitive and empathetic tone... and its often searing imagery -- is less a rumination on the inevitability of death and more a testament to the vibrancy of life itself.

Testament to Norbert Barlicki (1880-1941) By Helena Tarnowicz-Barlicka
eBook (ePub): $2.99
Helena Tarnowicz-Barlicka was born in Warsaw in 1894, one of eight children in a large, traditional upper middle-class Polish family. With the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, the family found... More > itself stranded in Moscow, and with the further outbreak of the October Revolution, they were not able to return to their homeland until the end of 1918. Helena relentlessly pursued her dream of becoming a physician. She started her studies in Moscow in 1917, but it was not until 1925 in Warsaw that she finally graduated with a doctorate. The most important person in her life outside of her family was Norbert Barlicki, the Polish publicist, lawyer and politician of the Polish Socialist Party (PPS) who was executed by the Germans during the Second World War. The testament by Helena is brief but evocative. It speaks for itself. It gives us insight into the character and mindset of Norbert Barlicki, but even more so, insight into what an extraordinary individual was Helena herself. Illust., 28 pp. when printed.< Less

NPA Personality Theory: The Essentials By A.M. Benis
eBook (ePub): $2.99
by A.M. Benis, ScD, MD. This landmark book brings together the essential elements of the NPA personality model. The premise is that every individual has several major personality traits resulting... More > from just a few genes. The traits assort themselves in various combinations to give discrete "personality types" that anyone can learn to recognize. For those not familiar with the NPA model, there is ample introductory material. Included are the twenty original "Case studies" that illustrate how the personality traits are inherited from parents to offspring. The book concludes with a detailed chapter on the geographic distribution of the NPA traits throughout the world. There are two appendices: one that clarifies the parallel relationships between "narcissism" and "sadism", and a second appendix that describes the online "NPA personality test" by which the reader can self-diagnose his or her genetic personality type. When printed: 123 pp., color illustr., charts, maps, glossary.< Less

Geographic Distribution of Genetic Character Traits Based on the NPA Theory of Personality By A.M. Benis
eBook (ePub): $2.99
The NPA theory of personality, based on three genetic traits (sanguinity, perfectionism and aggression) is used to map the worldwide distribution of character traits. Presence or absence of the... More > traits gives rise to discrete character types. The model predicts stable polymorphisms of the character phenotypes that could be analyzed with the use of the classical Hardy-Weinberg concepts of gene frequencies and populations in equilibrium. Both indigenous and non-indigenous groups were typed across the world according to the three traits with the use of archival sources and information available on the internet. Our results are presented in the form of color-coded maps that depict the worldwide distribution of the character phenotypes, as well as of the three traits. The results are analyzed with respect to the "Out of Africa" concept of the ancestral migrations of Homo sapiens. Edition: ePub.
