The prominent liberal syndicated radio and television host concisely explains the many ways President Obama has failed to live up to either his promises or his progressive potential, leaving Democrats disillusioned on the issues that matter most. Bill Press—a progressive champion and former chair of the California Democratic Party, a one-time co-host of CNN’s Crossfire, and the popular nationally syndicated radio and television host of The Bill Press Show—reflects back on what for many progressives has been a disappointing presidency and comes to a depressing conclusion: Obama grossly misunderstood the mandate of the enthusiastic crowds that swarmed him on the campaign trail. Instead of recognizing their burning desire for strong progressive leadership, Obama tried to be a “post-partisan” president. The tragedy of Barack Obama is that, in trying to become the great uniter, he has instead become a grave disappointment. From climate change to gun safety to, yes, even health care, Obama’s legacy on important issues falls far short of what could have been. Time and again, he let down his most impassioned supporters—the ones who used their powerful voices to vote for change—neglecting their priorities and wasting his potential by either not doing enough or, worse, repeating the errors of his predecessor. President Obama rode into office on a celebratory tide of liberal jubilation, but as his typically centrist presidency comes to a close, he leaves his supporters haunted by what might have been.

A 1948 murder committed in Georgia¿s Coweta County was controversial not only for its middle-of-the-night mystery, but also for the role played by prominent businessman John Wallace. In No Remorse: The Rise and Fall of the Killer John Wallace, bestselling nonfiction author Dot Moore explores not only that fateful night, but also the events that brought John Wallace to that point -- the death of his father when Wallace was only eleven years old, and his early exposure to the making and selling of moonshine whiskey. Moonshine would later play a part in the murder for which Georgia sent Wallace to the electric chair. In striking detail, Moore explores Wallace's fascinating life, including his fits of uncontrollable rage. Moore includes actual letters to and from Wallace, as well as copious historical images, to give a full picture of the Georgia figure. With a cast of characters that includes fortune-teller Mahaley Lancaster, subject of Moore's well-known biography, Oracle of the Ages, No Remorse is a Southern true crime biography like no other.

Remorse is a powerful, important and yet academically neglected emotion. This book, one of the very few extended examinations of remorse, draws on psychology, law and philosophy to present a unique interdisciplinary study of this intriguing emotion. The psychological chapters examine the fundamental nature of remorse, its interpersonal effects, and its relationship with regret, guilt and shame. A practical focus is also provided in an examination of the place of remorse in psychotherapeutic interventions with criminal offenders. The book's jurisprudential chapters explore the problem of how offender remorse is proved in court and the contentious issues concerning the effect that remorse - and its absence - should have on sentencing criminal offenders. The legal and psychological perspectives are then interwoven in a discussion of the role of remorse in restorative justice. In Remorse: Psychological and Jurisprudential Perspectives, Proeve and Tudor bring together insights of neighbouring disciplines to advance our understanding of remorse. It will be of interest to theoreticians in psychology, law and philosophy, and will be of benefit to practising psychologists and lawyers.

`Remorse, or rather the lack of it, frequently features in banner headlines. But there is little systematic study of this important interdisciplinary topic whose relevance has extensive social ramifications. The complex relationship between remorse, shame guilt and attempts at reparation, are discussed in this authoritative work. This volume is the first comprehensive attempt to bring together both forensic clinicians and those working within the criminal justice system.' - New Life `Familiar though they are in literature, religion and philosophy, the phenomena of remorse and reparation are rarely explored in either the theory or practice of forensic psychotherapy. This book begins to address those omissions, dealing with clinical and legal questions and ranging widely over political, philosophical, sociological and artistic perspectives...Remorse and Reparation is very much the expression of Murray Cox's particular, and unique, talent. He would have been proud of this, his last book, even though he did not live long enough to supervise its publication. Murray has brought together authors from different disciplines to convey a myriad of views. Although occasionally contradictory, the impacts of original insights presented from several different perspectives can be stunning. This book will be a valuable addition to the literature of any forensic institution.' - British Journal of Psychiatry `This is a book all magistrates, probation officers and QPMs should read. It consists of 15 short and mostly readable essays, looking at a little-considered aspect of human experience from medical, legal, sociological and philosophical points of view. The case studies quoted are very much to the point ... Two essays particularly impressed me. David Tidmarsh, now of the Parole Board, was formerly on the staff of Broadmoor Hospital. He draws attention to the lack of reference to remorse in the Board's remit, which is concerned only with risk ... John Harding of the Inner London Probation Service quotes examples, including two well-known ones from Barlinnie, where moral reformation has occurred.' - Newsletter of Quakers in Criminal Justice Remorse, or rather the lack of it, frequently features in banner headlines. But there is little systematic study of this important inter-disciplinary topic whose relevance has extensive social ramifications. Should a show of remorse by an offender be taken into account in sentencing? Is there a correlation between the experience of remorse and a diminished likelihood of re-offending? And is there a correlation between the experience and the expression of remorse? Such questions, and the complex relationship between remorse, shame, guilt and attempts at reparation, are discussed in this authoritative work. This volume is the first comprehensive attempt to bring together both forensic clinicians and those working within the criminal justice system. There is also a series of chapters by those writing from the adjacent complementary disciplines of moral philosophy, classics, Shakespeare studies, sociology and anthropology.

This book was awarded a Special Mention Citation in the 2010 competition for the 'de la Torre Bueno Prize' by The Society of Dance History Scholars. In the region of Salento in Southern Italy, the music and dance of the "pizzica" has been used in the ritual of tarantism for many centuries as a means to cure someone bitten by the "taranta" spider. This book, a historical and ethnographic study of tarantism and "pizzica," draws upon seven hundred years of writings about the ritual contributed by medical practitioners, scientists, travel writers and others. It also investigates the contemporary revival of interest in "pizzica" music and dance as part of the 'neo-tarantism' movement, where "pizzica" and the history of tarantism form a complex web of place, culture and identity for Salentines today. This is one of the first books in English to explore this fascinating ritual practice and its contemporary resurgence. It uses an interdisciplinary framework based in performance studies to ask wider questions about the experience of the body in performance, and the potential of music and dance to create a sense of personal and collective transformation and efficacy.

Enlisting the aid of Luke's BOI teammates, they soon discover that Val’s intended abduction is linked to a plot put in play by an international gun smuggling alliance.

This book articulates in rich and complex ways the nature of two important moral emotions or 'ways of being' -- compassion and remorse. As an exemplar of the 'agent-centred' tradition in normative ethical theory, it is a fine piece of work, exhibiting one of the more admirable and enjoyable aspects of work in that tradition -- the ability to build bridges between a variety of philosophical traditions. Steven Tudor makes excellent use of authors in both the analytic an continental traditions, while maintaing an admirable clear style. The book elucidates in nuanced and quite sophisticated ways the various aspects of compassion and remorse, and how they are distinguishable from neighbouring and less valuable states such as pity, emphaty, guilt feelings, shame and regret. At the same time, it acknowledges and combats various criticisms of compassion and remorse as moral responses by distinguishing between distorted and undistorted forms of these states. Compassion and Remorse: Acknowledging the Suffering Other is an interesting and intelligent work of philosophy." Dr Christine Swanton, University of Auckland, New Zealand, author of Freedom: A Coherence Theory (winner of Johnsonsian Prize, 1990) "Steven Tudor's book examines two important features of moral experience, compassion and remorse, both of which deserve a central place in the contemporary revival of virtue theory. Both involve the recognition of other people's suffering, while the second also involves a personal recognition of, in some cases, responsibility for that suffering. Drawing on a number of sources -- phenomenology, theology, postmodernism, and the philosophy of Wittgenstein -- Tudor interprets these important moral responses, not as bare cognitions, but in terms of understanding, feeling and practical engagement. Following a path of clear and cogent arguments, he develops a number of moral themes so as to sketch an illuminating conception of the moral life. This is a book for the thoughtful and reflective participant in those moral debates which touch on our personal relations with, and responsibility for, each other. What it offers the reader, in the end, is a strong defence of moral universality and a common human nature." Professor Brenda Almond, University of Hull, author of Exploring Ethics: A Traveller's Tale (1998) and Vice-President of the Society for Applied Philosophy Dr Steven Tudor studied philosophy and law at the University of Melbourne, Australia, where he is currently a Senior Fellow in the Department of Philosophy. He also practises law as a barrister.
