As they try to balance the demands of careers and family life, they are too often left with a feeling of imbalance, a feeling that can manifest in both physical and emotional stress. To reclaim their equilibrium and find relief, more and more women are turning to qigong, a low-impact, time-efficient daily practice of gentle exercises based on the ancient concept of acupuncture meridians. Developed and enriched over two thousand years by Taoist and Buddhist doctors and monks, chi kung offers techniques for improving breath control and mental concentration, releasing stress through self-administered massage and acupressure, and reaching and maintaining desired weight. In Qigong for Women, Dominique Ferraro gives step-by-step instructions, accompanied by photos, for dozens of exercises that address the specific concerns of women. Along with chapters on stress relief, aging, and physical toning, Ferraro includes information on female sexuality, osteoporosis, menstrual difficulties, and problems related to pregnancy. Through regular practice of chi kung, women can improve blood circulation, reinforce the immune system, and reestablish emotional equilibrium. Middle-aged and older women will enjoy the added benefits of recovering elasticity, whether in their joints or in their psyches. Valuable for all ages, Qigong for Women provides a system, both preventive and curative, to maintain the sense of well-being that we all deserve.

    Adriana, a simple girl with no fortune but her beauty, models naked for a painter, accepts gifts from men, and could never quite identify the moment she traded her private dream of home and children for the life a prostitute. The Woman of Rome is also the story of tortured university student Giacomo, a failed revolutionary who refuses to admit his desire for Adriana; of the sinister figure Astarita, a big shot with the political police who is obsessed with Adriana; and of the coarse and brutal criminal Sonzogno, who treats Adriana as his private property. Within this drama of passion, mystery and betrayal, Moravia calmly strips away the pride and arrogance hiding the corrupt heart of Italian Fascism.
