Mental illness : law and public policy by Baruch A Brody( Book )

6 editions published between 1980 and 2013 in English and held by 546 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume developed from and around a series of six lectures sponsored by Rice University and the University of Texas Medical Branch at Galveston in the Fall of 1976. Though these lectures on the concepts of mental health, mental illness and personal responsibility, and the social treatment of the mentally ill were given to general audiences in Houston and Galveston, they were revised and expanded to produce six extensive formal essays by Dan Brock, Jules Coleman, Joseph Margolis, Michael Moore, Jerome Neu, and Rolf Sartorius. The five remaining contributions by Daniel Creson, Corinna Delkeskamp, Edmund Erde, James Speer, and Stephen Wear were in various ways engendered by the debates occasioned by the original six lectures. In fact, the majority of the last five contributions emerged from informal dis· cussions occasioned by the original lecture series. The result is an interlocking set of essays that address the law and public policy insofar as they bear on the treatment of the mentally ill, special atten· tion being given to the defmition of mental illness, generally and in the law, to the issues of the bearing of mental incompetence in cases of criminal and civil liability, and to the issue of involuntary commitment for the purpose of treatment or for institutional care. There is as well a critical defense of Thomas Szasz's radical proposal that mental illnesses are best understood as problems in living, not as diseases

Electrostatic protection of the solar power satellite and rectenna by Rice University( Book )

This report examines theoretically several features of the interactions of the Solar Power Satellite (SPS) with its space environment. We calculate the voltages produced at various surfaces due to space plasmas and the plasma leakage currents through the kapton and sapphire solar cell blankets. At geosynchronous orbit (GEO), this parasitic power loss is only 0.7%, and is easily compensated by oversizing. At low-earth orbit, (LEO), the power loss is potentially much larger (3%), and anomalous arcing is expected for the EOTV high voltage negative surfaces. Preliminary results of a three-dimensional self-consistent plasma and electric field computer program are presented, confirming the validity of the predictions made from the one-dimensional models. Lastly, the report considers magnetic shielding of the satellite, to reduce the power drain and to protect the solar cells from energetic electron and plasma ion bombardment. It is concluded that minor modifications can allow the SPS to operate safely and efficiently in its space environment. The SPS design employed in this study is the January 25, 1978 MSFC baseline design utilizing GaAs solar cells at CR-2 and an aluminum structure. Subsequent design changes will substantially alter the basic conclusions in this report. (ERA citation 09:028093) (v.1) (NTRL site)
