In the realm of hungry ghosts : close encounters with addiction by Gabor Maté( Book )

3 editions published between 2010 and 2014 in English and held by 616 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on Gabor Maté's two decades of experience as a medical doctor and his work with the severely addicted on Vancouver's skid row, In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts reenvisions this much misunderstood field by taking a holistic approach. Dr. Maté presents addiction not as a discrete phenomenon confined to an unfortunate or weak-willed few, but as a continuum that runs throughout (and perhaps underpins) our society; not a medical "condition" distinct from the lives it affects, rather the result of a complex interplay among personal history, emotional, and neurological development, brain chemistry, and the drugs (and behaviors) of addiction. Simplifying a wide array of brain and addiction research findings from around the globe, the book avoids glib self-help remedies, instead promoting a thorough and compassionate self-understanding as the first key to healing and wellness. This book argues against contemporary health, social, and criminal justice policies toward addiction and those impacted by it. The mix of personal stories -- including the author's discussion of his own "high-status" addictive tendencies -- and science with positive solutions makes the book equally useful for lay readers and professionals

MSU History Professor Peter Levine introduces the two main speakers, Harry Reed and Ken Waltzer. Reed, MSU History professor, lists the many betrayals of Blacks by American society by way of explaining Black wariness of white contact. Waltzer, acting Dean of James Madison College, discusses changes in self-identification of Blacks and Jews with current emphasis on slavery and the Holocaust. Lawrence Thomas, Syracuse Professor of Philosophy, who is both Black and Jewish, discusses the stereotypes of Blacks as moral simpletons and Jews as irredeemably evil, and suggests that trust and understanding go much deeper than mere good will. In the question-and-answer session that follows, Junius Griffin introduces himself and speaks about the involvement of Jews in the Black struggles of the sixties and seventies
