The Gambler: Romancing Lady Luck (New)
by Currie, Billye
Publisher: Inner City Books
Book ID: 9781894574198, 1894574192
Please inquire for availability
Gambling, once shunned as a criminal activity, is now a main-stream component of Western culture. Participation in gambling is reported by over 80% of people in North America.
This is the first ever book on gamblers and gambling from a Jungian perspective. Most studies of gambling activities focus on addiction to the game(s), but this book covers the gamut, from recreational to pathological gambling. The author explores the archetypal foundations of the gambler through 1) amplification of images of Lady Luck; 2) the role of “play” as an activity informing the gambler’s approach to the game; and 3) images of the gambler on the continuum from play to addiction —all in the service of becoming better acquainted with the gambler in ourselves and in those around us.
Case stories are included in this exceptionally insightful study of the inner and outer forces that urge many of us to take a chance—on slots, cards, dice, lotteries, horses, roulette, stocks, love and more, with particular attention to gambling in casinos.
Billye B. Currie, Ph.D., is a licensed psychologist and a graduate of the Inter-Regional Society of Jungian Analysts.

Allied to ancient Gnostic cosmological concepti...
The Voynich Manuscript
Yale University Press
Many call the fifteenth-century codex, commonly known as the Voynich Manuscript, the world s most mysterious book. Written in an unknown script by an unknown author, the manuscript has no clearer purpose now than when it was rediscovered in 1912 by rare books dealer Wilfrid Voynich. The manuscript appears and disappears throughout history, from the library of the Holy Roman Emperor Rudolf II to a secret sale of books in 1903 by the Society of Jesus in Rome. The book s language has eluded deciphe...More
