Summary
"Nazi Wives is a fascinating look at the personal lives, psychological profiles, and marriages of the wives of officers in Hitler's inner circle. Goering, Goebbels, Himmler, Heydrich, Hess, Bormann-names synonymous with power and influence in the Third Reich. Perhaps less familiar are Carin, Emmy, Magda, Margarete, Lina, Ilse and Gerda... These are the women behind the infamous men-complex individuals with distinctive personalities who were captivated by Hitler and whose everyday lives were governed by Nazi ideology. Throughout the rise and fall of Nazism these women loved and lost, raised families and quarreled with their husbands and each other, all the while jostling for position with the Fuhrer himself. Until now, they have been treated as minor characters, their significance ignored, as if they were unaware of their husbands' murderous acts, despite the evidence that was all around them: the stolen art on their walls, the slave labor in their homes, and the produce grown in concentration camps on their tables. James Wyllie's Nazi Wives explores these women in detail for the first time, skillfully interweaving their stories through years of struggle, power, decline and destruction into the post-war twilight of denial and delusion"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary
We've all kind of gone collectively psychotic, says evolutionary psychologist Dr. Geoffrey Miller, whose research deals with consumerism and marketing and their impact on traditional human interaction. Long-standing ways of socializing are not only vanishing, says Miller, but addictions, depression, and other mental health issues are becoming standard aspects of our lives - the direct results of our consumption-based society. This program looks at conclusions drawn by Miller and other thought leaders in response to dramatic cultural and socioeconomic shifts emerging in the 21st century. According to sustainable design expert Tim Cooper, the long-term individual and psychological cost of modern consumerism is relatively small. The environmental cost, on the other hand, could ultimately destroy life as we know it.
