Men in Therapy: The Challenge of Change
Men in Therapy: The Challenge of Change
Men have long been considered difficult to engage in psychotherapy, often being described as resistant, unworkable, and unfeeling. The few available books that deal specifically with men's issues tend to lack a central theoretical focus, are highly psychoanalytic in content, or simply do not provide specific guidelines for working with men. This unique and timely volume fills an important gap in the literature by demonstrating why change is often so difficult for them. It provides detailed guidelines for helping men initiate and sustain change in their personal, familial, and professional lives.

Hirshorn Gallery of Art
Hirshorn Gallery of Art
Hirshorn Gallery and Hirshorn Sculpture Garden Late 1930s The US Congress mandates a Smithsonian art museum for the National Mall; a design by Eliel Saarinen is unveiled in 1939. New York financier Joseph H. Hirshhorn (born Latvia, 1899) pursues a lifelong passion for collecting art. 1940s World War II and shifting priorities shelve the museum project. On the National Mall in Washington, DC, the only venue for visual art is the National Gallery of Art, which focuses on old masters. In the late 1940s, Joseph Hirshhorn, now in his 40s and enjoying phenomenal success from uranium mining investments, begins recrafting his collection from "classic" French Impressionism to works by living artists, American modernism of the early 20th century, and sculpture. 1950s In 1955, Joseph Hirshhorn sells his uranium interests for more than $50 million. His collection expands (late 1950s-early '60s) to warehouses, an apartment in New York, and an estate in Greenwich, Connecticut, with extensive acreage for sculpture. 1960s A 1962 sculpture show at New York's Guggenheim Museum awakens an international art community to the breadth of Hirshhorn's holdings. Word of his collection of modern and contemporary paintings also circulates, and institutions in Italy, Israel, Canada, California, and New York vie for the collection. President Lyndon B. Johnson and Smithsonian Secretary S. Dillon Ripley make a successful pitch for a new museum on Washington, DC's National Mall. An Act of Congress establishes the Hirshhorn Museum and Sculpture Garden, Smithsonian Institution (1966). The museum is primarily federally funded, although Hirshhorn later contributes $1 million toward building construction. Joseph and his fourth wife, Olga Zatorsky Hirshhorn, visit the White House. Groundbreaking takes place in 1969. Early 1970s Founding director Abram Lerner (born 1913) oversees research, conservation, and installation of over 6,000 objects, brought from the Hirshhorns' Connecticut estate and other properties to Washington, DC. The museum building and garden complex, designed by Gordon Bunshaft (1909-1990) of Skidmore, Owings & Merrill, nears completion on the National Mall. Ambassador Daniel Patrick Moynihan chairs the Hirshhorn's first Board of Trustees. The New York Times: "... a fortress of a building that works as a museum." Joseph Hirshhorn speaks at the inauguration (1974), saying: "It is an honor to have given my art collection to the people of the United States as a small repayment for what this nation has done for me and others like me who arrived here as immigrants. What I accomplished in the United States I could not have accomplished anywhere else in the world." One million visitors see the 850-work inaugural show in the first six months. ARCHITECTURE Design Concept Bunshaft conceived the Hirshhorn as "a large piece of functional sculpture" among the shrinelike structures of the National Mall. The hollow-centered, elevated cylinder-primarily a gallery for paintings-floats above nearly four acres of landscaped grounds for sculpture. Curved galleries expand the visitor's view of works. Window-walls open the interior and focus on the fountain, while a recessed garden provides serenity. Like the round Guggenheim Museum in New York, the drum-shaped Hirshhorn is bold compared with its neighbors (Mall constructions tend to be brick Victorian fantasies, modernist block buildings, or neoclassical temples), but symmetry and frontality conserve the official Washington, DC, architectural mode. The plaza was redesigned in 1991 to create six "rooms" of inviting, verdant space for the display of a selection of large-scale contemporary sculptures in the Hirshhorn collection. The building's four piers serve as sheltered coves for more intimately sized works. The fountain holds fascination for young and old alike as the central water jet shoots up almost four stories. Special events such as concerts and workshops often take place between the piers, under the "drum" of the building, and on the granite-paved plaza. The Hirshorn is the only building on the National Mall named for an individual. Siting The Hirshhorn is sited exactly halfway between the Washington Monument and the US Capitol, anchoring the southernmost end of the so-called L'Enfant axis (perpendicular to the Mall's green carpet). The National Archives/National Gallery of Art Sculpture Garden across the Mall, and the National Portrait Gallery/Smithsonian American Art building several blocks to the north, also mark this pivotal axis, a key element of both the 1791 city plan by Pierre L'Enfant and the 1901 MacMillan Plan. Technical Information •Building and walls surfaced with precast concrete aggregate of "Swenson" pink granite •Building is 231 feet in diameter; interior court, 115 feet; fountain, 60 feet •Building is 82 feet high, elevated 14 feet on four massive, sculptural piers •60,000 square fee

Jeff Gordon: The NASCAR Superstar's Story
When Jeff Gordon burst onto the NASCAR scene in the early 1990s, he broke the stereotypical mold for a stock car racing champion. He was young, handsome, articulate, media-savvy and from California, not from "down South." He has withstood incredible resistance and tough on-track competition to become a four-time champion at NASCAR’s highest level. A mix of fresh writing and articles drawn from leading racing magazines Stock Car Racing and Circle Track create a thorough profile of Gordon as a racer and as an individual. This book covers his approach to driving, his team and cars, and his business savvy as a leading endorser and now a team owner.
