Though he was a prolific writer and an original thinker of vast erudition, Jung lacked a gift for clear exposition and his ideas are less widely appreciated than they deserve. In this concise introduction, Anthony Stevens explains clearly the basic concepts of Jungian psychology: the collective unconscious, complex, archetype, shadow, persona, anima, animus, and the individuation of the Self. He examines Jung's views on such disparate subjects as myth, religion, alchemy, `sychronicity', and the psychology of gender differences, and he devotes separate chapters to the stages of life, Jung's theory of psychological types, the interpretation of dreams, the practice of Jungian analysis, and to the unjust allegation that Jung was a Nazi sympathizer. Finally, he argues that Jung's visionary powers and profound spirituality have helped many to find an alternative set of values to the arid materialism prevailing in Western society.

From Zeus and Europa, to Diana, Pan, and Prometheus, the myths of ancient Greece and Rome seem to exert a timeless power over us. But what do those myths represent, and why are they so enduringly fascinating? Why do they seem to be such a potent way of talking about our selves, our origins, and our desires? This imaginative and stimulating Very Short Introduction goes beyond a simple retelling of the stories to explore the rich history and diverse interpretations of classical myths. It is a wide-ranging account, examining how classical myths are used and understood in both high art and popular culture, taking the reader from the temples of Crete to skyscrapers in New York, and finding classical myths in a variety of unexpected places: from arabic poetry and Hollywood films, to psychoanalysis, the bible, and New Age spiritualism.

Thomas Fowler verfolgt das Kriegsgeschehen in Vietnam 1952 aus sicherer Distanz. Auf der Terrasse des berühmten Hotel Continental in Saigon lernt er den jungen Amerikaner Aldon Pyle kennen, der für eine medizinische Hilfsorganisation nach Asien gekommen ist. Fowler, der alternde Journalist, und Pyle verstehen sich gut, bis Pyle sich in dessen schöne Geliebte Phuong verliebt, die fortan zwischen den beiden Männern hin- und hergerissen ist. Als in Saigon Plastikbomben explodieren, schöpft Fowler den Verdacht, dass die Chemikalien, die Pyle ins Land schmuggelt, vielleicht doch nicht nur medizinischen Zwecken dienen.
