Product Description & Reviews

Varios neurologos reciben un correo tan desconcertante que deciden contactar con el periodista Jon Ronson, autor de este libro, para tratar de resolver los enigmas que se esconden tras lo que acaban de conocer. Se trata de la historia de un preso que supuestamente fingio una enfermedad mental para obtener una sentencia mas leve, pero que en la actualidad sigue ingresado en un penal psiquiatrico porque ningun medico cree que este cuerdo. Jon Ronson decide, entonces, ahondar un poco mas en el tema y ver que hay de cierto y que de mera especulacion en las diagnosis de locura que tan felizmente se prescriben a diario en el mundo entero. Ronson tiene una suerte de epifania cuando conoce al prestigioso psicologo, Robert Hare, que desarrollo el test estandar que diagnostica la psicopatia y que esta convencido de que muchos ejecutivos importantes y politicos son, de hecho, verdaderos psicopatas. Jon aprende de el a descubrir a estos psicopatas de altos vuelos y, armado con su nueva habilidad de cazador de locos, se adentra por los pasillos del poder. / This is a book that explores the concept of psychopathy. Ronson visits purported psychopaths, as well as psychologists and psychiatrists who have studied them, and meets with Robert Hare, the eponymous author of the 20 part test administered to detect psychopathy. He explores the idea that many corporate and governmental leaders are psychopaths whose actions to others can only be explained by taking that fact into account, and he privately uses the Hare test to determine if he can discern any truth to it.

Ralph McGill's life and work (1898-1969) show how an individual becomes committed to the cause of civil rights and social justice. In Vienna in 1938, while still a sportswriter, McGill felt a ''calling'' to fight intolerance, hatred, and racial prejudice. He assumed his eventual role of ''the conscience of the South'' in stages. He became an editor of the Atlanta Constitution, but for years struggled to master political and economic commentary. Until 1948 McGill believed a long period of

Nacoste’s life of work on diversity, especially his two years as the ranking university administrator responsible for

Edward Sapir: Linguist, Anthropologist, Humanist

This first full-scale biography of Edward Sapir (1884–1939) does justice to the life and ideas of the most distinguished linguist of Boasian anthropology, who contributed substantially to the professionalization of linguistics as an independent discipline. Sapir was the first to apply comparative Indo-European methods to the study of American Indian languages, pursuing fieldwork on more than twenty of them.

A Need to Know: The Clandestine History of a CIA Family
By Routledge
ean: 9781598740424, isbn: 1598740423,
In scenes eerily parallel to the culture of fear inspired by our current War on Terror, A Need to Know explores the clandestine history of a CIA family defined, and ultimately destroyed, by their oath to keep toxic secrets during the Cold War. When Bud Goodall’s father mysteriously died, his inheritance consisted of three well-worn books: a Holy Bible, The Great Gatsby, and a diary. But they turned his life upside down. From the diary Goodall learned that his father had been a CIA operative

When Steve de Shazer and Insoo Kim Berg founded the Brief Family Therapy Center (BFTC) in Milwaukee in 1978, they set out on a journey which led not only to the development of Solution-Focused Brief Therapy (SFBT) but also to a revolutionary influence across and beyond the whole psychotherapeutic field. Terms such as solution focus, resource orientation, scaling, miracle question and many more are taken for granted today, and the broader implications of their work on how we think about therapy

Without Utterance: Tales from the Other Side of Language
By Ruth Codier Resch
These are my stories losing language in a stroke, then brain trauma. I'm a clinical psychologist, psychoanalyst, baby observer, bird watcher. My sense of self survived using these skills to reflect on walking through a wilderness without read signs. I found languages outside of verbal language that took me to whole new worlds... To speak at all was to locate the fewest words to express anything. I wanted to keep this spare language to convey the unimaginable. Digging deep, then deeper again, I
