Průvodce po opevněných kostelech v České republice. Opevněné kostely jsou sakrálními stavbami s fortifikačními prvky; sloužily nejen k náboženským účelům, ale také jako opěrné body při obraně proti nepříteli. Každé heslo v průvodci obsahuje informace o dané lokalitě a její dostupnosti, stručnou historii, popis kostela a jeho opevnění. První část publikace se zaměřuje na památky v oblastech Prahy, Jihočeského, Karlovarského, Královéhradeckého, Libereckého, Plzeňského, Středočeského a Ústeckého kraje.
Volume four in the Tora Skammelsen crime series (a novella of around 100 pages) Tora buys her home near the North Sea, but village life does not quite live up to her expectations. Soon she develops a keen interest in the activities of her peculiar neighbour Margrethe. Why does the widow try to hide the fact that a man is living with her? Besides there is Rune, the charming sales rep at the Old Mill Inn, who all but sweeps Tora off her feet while her friend, Police Inspector Thomas Bilgren, is preoccupied with a bank robbery. The story can be read as a stand-alone, but for readers with an interest in Tora's private affairs it may be a good idea to begin with 'North Sea Cottage'.
To Live in the World as Ourselves: Self-Discovery and Better Relationships through Jung’s Typology is a guide to one of the pillars of Jungian psychology. Going far beyond merely an exercise in categorizing and affixing ourselves and others with a personality “type,” the author offers simple but fundamental aspects of psychology that are easily observable in everyone. The book shows readers how to discover the essentials of their true nature, and offers techniques to live more authentically and with stress, and to relate to others with more ease, understanding and mutual support. Through real-life examples and avatars of typology from popular culture, the author describes extroversion and introversion, thinking, feeling, intuition and sensation, universal psychological abilities to perceive and process life experience that cover all aspects of a fully human life. She shows how an innate hierarchy of these psychological abilities shapes our personal priorities, interests, special talents, ways of working and relating, even how we fall in love. Throughout the book are tips on relating best to people of various typologies, so as to avoid misunderstandings and even heal long-standing conflicts. Readers find out where they are likely to feel vulnerable, and ways to work best with and around fears and self-doubts, leading to self-awareness, self-enhancement and deeply rewarding relationships.

Behind a scarf and sunglasses, she hides from the world, from herself, from The Event, from any future with anyone. After receiving a box of letters from his deceased mother, Matt Nelson is shoved from his predictable, controlled life to a secluded beach in North Carolina. While trying to understand his mother’s intent, he discovers Kathleen. Matt must choose whether to follow the path his mother orchestrated or rescue the woman who has captured his heart. When the only person Kathleen blames more than herself reappears, can Matt be the strength Kathleen needs to create a new life, or will he be forced to walk away if she decides the climb is too great?
Ellie Hawthorne’s event-planning business desperately needs a jolt of life. Determined to drum up leads, she heads to Las Vegas for a trade conference—and has one too many shots of tequila. The next morning, Ellie wakes up with a ring on her finger and next to the last person she expected to see again: Connor Grayson, the high-school boyfriend who broke her heart. Connor is in Vegas to secure funds for his self-driving car project. He’s as shocked as Ellie is by their accidental marriage. But when he finds out that his beloved grandmother Viola has suffered a heart attack, he begs Ellie to keep up the charade—just until Viola recovers.
Neither of them could have guessed what Viola has planned. And Ellie starts to think that maybe she got luckier in Vegas than she could have ever imagined. With a little help from Viola and four elderly Elvis impersonators, can these former sweethearts find lasting love?

Now, having returned home in disgrace, she is trying to forget what drove her from the ton. But rake and gambler Brett Farnham, Earl of Coltonby, seems intent on making Diana remember exactly what it was like to be whirled around the ballroom and seduced by the glint in your partner's eye... But Brett has 'mistress' rather than 'marriage' in mind, and Diana is not sure her reputation can stand up to another scandal...
From the PREFACE: The following papers are published chiefly because they treat in a concrete and personal manner some of the principles which the writer has developed in two previously published books, The Educative Process and Classroom Management, and in a forthcoming volume, Educational Values.
It is hoped that the more informal discussions presented in the following pages will, in some slight measure, supplement the theoretical and systematic treatment which necessarily characterizes the other books. In this connection, it should be stated that the materials of the first paper here presented were drawn upon in writing Chapter XVIII of Classroom Management, and that the second paper simply states in a different form the conclusions reached in Chapter I of The Educative Process. The writer is indebted to his colleague, Professor L.F. Anderson, for many criticisms and suggestions and to Miss Bernice Harrison for invaluable aid in editing the papers for publication.
But his heaviest debt, here as elsewhere, is to his wife, to whose encouraging sympathy and inspiration whatever may be valuable in this or in his other books must be largely attributed.
