In this book Frank Dumont presents personality psychology with a fresh description of its current status as well as its prospects. Play, sex, cuisine, creativity, altruism, pets, grieving rituals, and other oft-neglected topics broaden the scope of this fascinating study. This tract is imbued with historical perspectives that reveal the continuity in the evolving science and research of this discipline over the past century. The author places classic schemas and constructs, as well as current principles, in the context of their socio-political catalysts. He further relates this study of the person to life-span developmental issues and to cultural, gender-specific, trait-based, genetic/epigenetic, and evolutionary research findings. Personality psychology has recently reconciled itself to more modest paradigms for describing, explaining, and predicting human behaviour than it generated in the 19th and 20th centuries. This book documents that transformation, providing valuable information for health-service professionals as well as to teachers, researchers, and scientists.

[1736 --1745.] After the temporary subjection of the Highlands, in 1720 and the years immediately succeeding, had been in appearance completed, by the establishment of garrisons, the formation of military roads, and the general submission of the Highland clans who were most opposed to Government, Scotland enjoyed a certain degree of internal repose, if not of prosperity. To estimate the nature of this calm, we must look at the state of the country in two points of view, as it concerned the Highlands and the Lowlands. In the Lowlands a superior degree of improvement began to take place, by the general influence of civilization, rather than by the effect of any specific legislative enactment. The ancient laws which vested the administration of justice in the aristocracy continued to be a cause of poverty amongst the tenantry of the country. Every gentleman of considerable estate possessed the power of a baron, or lord of regality, and by means of a deputy, who was usually his factor or land-steward, exercised the power of dispensing justice, both...

Not illustrated. 1912 edition. Excerpt: ... CHAPTER III. THE GREAT AWAKENING. Dark as were the conditions which preceded the Great Awakening, there were not wanting rays of light to give promise of brighter days. Rev. Solomon Stoddard, whose practices evidently were better than his theories, had been blessed in his pastorate at Northampton, with special ingatherings which he called harvests, during the years 1679, 1683, 1696, 1712, and 1718. Revivals were also reported at Hartford, Conn., in 1696, at Taunton, Mass., in 1705, and at Windom, Conn., in 1721. The great earthquake of 1727 profoundly affected the public mind and led many to inquire seriously concerning the way of salvation. That same year Rev. Gilbert Tennent, who was destined to play no inconspicuous part in the Great Awakening, was called to the pastorate of a Presbyterian Church at New Brunswick, New Jersey. There he came in contact with the fruitful ministry of Rev. Theodore Frelinghuysen, who for seven years had been pastor of a Dutch Reformed Church in the vicinity, and whose success together with f his fraternal counsel incited the young minister to a spirit of inquiry concerning his own lack of fruitfulness in ministerial labors. A sickness which visited him about this time deepened these impressions to such an extent that he resolved to be more faithful and earnest in his ministry should he recover. Upon his restoration to health he sought both by personal work and the faithful presentation of gospel truth to awaken the indifferent and arouse the impenitent to a sense of their spiritual needs, "which method," he said, "was sealed by the Holy Spirit in the conviction and conversion of a considerable number of persons at various times and in different places in that part of the country as appeared by their...

The history of transportation is a long and interesting one. Travel was not always as easy and fun as it is today. In the past travel was hard, dirty and slow. Present travel is fast, easy and clean. For millennia travel was by foot or draft animal. Through most of human history people traveled as little as possible. The industrial age revolutionized travel by birthing modern transportation modes. Transportation methods between then and now have changed dramatically. Humans have an insatiable need to travel, to see new things and to find out what is just over the horizon. A Short History of Transportation outlines the history of our transition from walking. Instead of walking, we now travel by chariots of the air that can whisk us from one end of the earth to another in just a matter of hours. It has been a fantastic journey from walking airplanes. From watercraft to horses, the automobile and airplane, the story has included many chapters. Now we stand at the dawn of space flight and the many new developments in transportation that beckon. It is certain that we have not finished traveling this road. Perhaps the next centuries will be as exciting as the last ones were.
