The Secret of Success
Author: Jessica Tracy
Publisher: Houghton Mifflin Harcourt
“A revelation.” — Angela Duckworth “Enlightening.” — Steven Pinker “Fascinating.” — Daniel H. Pink “Insightful and engaging.” — Daniel Gilbert “Stopped me in my tracks.” — Adam Grant “An intriguing new way to think about a complicated emotion.” — New York Why did Paul Gauguin abandon middle-class life to follow the path of a starving artist? What explains the massive success of Steve Jobs, a man with great ideas but weak programming skills and a questionable managerial style? How did Dean Karnazes—the famed “Ultramarathon Man”—transform himself from a directionless desk jockey into an extreme athlete who once ran fifty marathons in fifty days? As the renowned emotion researcher Jessica Tracy reveals, each of these superachievers has been motivated by an often maligned emotion: pride. Its dark, hubristic side is well known, but Tracy shows that pride is also essential for helping us become our best, brightest selves. It makes us strive for excellence. In the right doses and the right contexts, it has been proven to boost creativity, motivate altruism, and confer power and prestige on those who display it. In Pride, Tracy explains how we can make this double-edged emotion serve us—rather than the other way around. “A must-read for anyone pursuing noteworthy goals.” — Publishers Weekly Previously published in hardcover as TAKE PRIDE.

Football and the Incorporation of American Cultural Values
Author: Gerald R. Gems
Publisher: Scarecrow Press
Category: Sports & Recreation
Sports history has emerged as a popular study over the past quarter century, and scholars have fueled this interest by providing a wealth of information on baseball and its role in American culture. Despite this increasing focus on the connection between sports and societal values, football, the sport that emerged in the late nineteenth century and merged the values of winning and commercialization with the culture of higher education, has been left relatively unexplored. This gap in sports history has left many questions unanswered, including football's link to American cultural values. Gerald R. Gems has filled this gap in sports history with his latest title, For Pride, Profit, and Patriarchy: Football and the Incorporation of American Cultural Values. This intriguing resource covers a host of issues including the rise of football, football and feminism, militarism and leadership training, and multiculturalism in football. A broad and comprehensive analysis of the ways in which football addressed the cultural and ideological tensions within American society during its period of development and consolidation after the Civil War, this study is ideal for everyone from the football enthusiast to the general reader.

Pride and Profit
Author: Alexandre Duchêne,Monica Heller
Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
This book examines the ways in which our ideas about language and identity which used to be framed in national and political terms as a matter of rights and citizenship are increasingly recast in economic terms as a matter of added value. It argues that this discursive shift is connected to specific characteristics of the globalized new economy in what can be thought of as "late capitalism". Through ten ethnographic case studies, it demonstrates the complex ways in which older nationalist ideologies which invest language with value as a source of pride get bound up with newer neoliberal ideologies which invest language with value as a source of profit. The complex interaction between these modes of mobilizing linguistic resources challenges some of our ideas about globalization, hinting that we are in a period of intensification of modernity, in which the limits of the nation-State are stretched, but not (yet) undone. At the same time, this book argues, this intensification also calls into question modernist ways of looking at language and identity, requiring a more serious engagement with capitalism and how it constitutes symbolic (including linguistic) as well as material markets.

Publisher: Prestwick House Inc
This Prestwick House Literary Touchstone Edition? includes a glossary and reader?s notes to help the modern reader enjoy the characters and situations as Austen intended and not merely as relics of a long-past era.Jane?s Austen?s delightfully scathing satire on class, pride, and proper behavior is as beloved today as it was when first published in 1813. The long road that the quick-witted, sharp-tongued Elizabeth Bennet and the haughty Darcy travel from mutual disdain to unfulfilled longing and finally to love and marriage is beset with obstacles in the form of Elizabeth?s insufferable mother, irrepressible younger sister, and Darcy?s own secret pain.In Pride and Prejudice, Austen has captured not only the frivolous sensibilities of early-nineteenth-century provincial England, but also the hearts and minds of anyone who has loved outside of social expectations and aspired to a happiness beyond mere propriety.
Author: Jane Austen
Austen’s most celebrated novel tells the story of Elizabeth Bennet, a bright, lively young woman with four sisters, and a mother determined to marry them to wealthy men. At a party near the Bennets’ home in the English countryside, Elizabeth meets the wealthy, proud Fitzwilliam Darcy. Elizabeth initially finds Darcy haughty and intolerable, but circumstances continue to unite the pair. Mr. Darcy finds himself captivated by Elizabeth’s wit and candor, while her reservations about his character slowly vanish. The story is as much a social critique as it is a love story, and the prose crackles with Austen’s wry wit.

A Lexical Approach to the Structure of Concepts
Author: Zoltán Kövecses
Publisher: John Benjamins Publishing
Category: Language Arts & Disciplines
This study is an attempt to uncover the structure of three emotion concepts: anger, pride and love. The results indicate that the conceptual structure associated with these emotions consists of four parts: (1) a system of metaphors, (2) a system of metonymies, (3) a system of related concepts, and (4) a category of cognitive models, with a prototypical model in the center. This goes against an influential view of the structure of concepts in linguistics, psychology, anthropology, according to which the structure of a concept can be represented by a small number of sense components.
