The double, doppelgänger, is mostly understood as a peculiar figure that emerged in nineteenth-century Romantic and gothic literature. Far from being a merely esoteric entity, however, this book argues that the double, although it mostly goes unnoticed, is a widespread phenomenon that has significant influence on our lives. It is an inherent key element of human subjectivity whose functions, forms, and effects have not yet gained the serious consideration they merit. Drawing on literature, philosophy, and psychoanalysis, and combining a personal story with theoretical interventions, Double Trouble develops a novel understanding of the double and human subjectivity in the last two centuries. It begins with the singular and narcissistic double of Romanticism and gradually moves to the multiple doubles implicated by Postmodernism. The double is what defies unicity and opens up the subject to multiplicity. Consequently, it gradually emerges as a bridge between the I and the Other, identity and difference, philosophy and literature, theory and praxis.

Montague Vampires - Heated Fantasies By Elizabeth Lapthorne Book 1 in the Montague Vampires series. Clare Rooney worked in the university library, and while her life wasn't exactly turning out how she expected, she couldn't complain either. Surrounded by books every day, and she did have her erotic fantasies to keep her warm at night. Then Clare found a tome in the library on the Ancient Civilization of the Early Vampires, and she began to understand the world was a lot larger than she believed. Not only that, but something-or someone-much better than her fantasies was about to appear. Simeon Montague was feeling itchy feet and a worry that his erotic fantasy woman held more appeal than any of the local escorts down at the pub. When Gavreel, his father, hadn't contacted Simeon or either of his brothers in over two months, he decided to check and make sure the old man hadn't landed himself in any trouble. But when Simeon came across Clare at Gavreel's shop, the awesome potential to make his heated fantasies a reality came into focus, and Simeon knew they were both about to begin the ride of a lifetime.

J. Phillip Thompson III, an insider in the Dinkins administration, provides the first in-depth look at how the black mayors of America's major cities achieve social change. Black constituents naturally look to black mayors to effect great change for the poor, but the reality of the situation is complicated. Thompson argues that African-American mayors, legislators, and political activists need to more effectively challenge opinions and public policies supported by the white public and encourage greater political inclusion and open political discourse within black communities. Only by unveiling painful internal oppresssions and exclusions within black politics will the black community's power increase, and compel similar unveilings in the broader interracial conversation about the problems of the urban poor. Tracing the historical development and contemporary practice of black mayoral politics, this is a fascinating study of the motivations of black politicians, competing ideologies in the black community and the inner dynamics of urban social change.
