Bipolar expeditions : mania and depression in American culture by Emily Martin( Book )

Publisher description for Bipolar expeditions : mania and depression in American culture / Emily Martin. Manic behavior holds an undeniable fascination in American culture today. It fuels the plots of best-selling novels and the imagery of MTV videos, is acknowledged as the driving force for successful entrepreneurs like Ted Turner, and is celebrated as the source of the creativity of artists like Vincent Van Gogh and movie stars like Robin Williams. Bipolar Expeditions seeks to understand mania's appeal and how it weighs on the lives of Americans diagnosed with manic depression. Anthropologist Emily Martin guides us into the fascinating and sometimes disturbing worlds of mental-health support groups, mood charts, psychiatric rounds, the pharmaceutical industry, and psychotropic drugs. Charting how these worlds intersect with the wider popular culture, she reveals how people living under the description of bipolar disorder are often denied the status of being fully human, even while contemporary America exhibits a powerful affinity for manic behavior. Mania, Martin shows, has come to be regarded as a distant frontier that invites exploration because it seems to offer fame and profits to pioneers, while depression is imagined as something that should be eliminated altogether with the help of drugs. Bipolar Expeditions argues that mania and depression have a cultural life outside the confines of diagnosis, that the experiences of people living with bipolar disorder belong fully to the human condition, and that even the most so-called rational everyday practices are intertwined with irrational ones

The Anthropology of Taiwanese society by Emily Martin( Book )

14 editions published between 1981 and 1997 in 3 languages and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume represents the state of the art of anthropology in Taiwan, summing up more than twenty years of fieldwork and publication. It also contains the fullest and best integrated set of anthropological data we have for any region of China, for any period of history. It deals directly with the difficult question that faces China anthropologists - in what sense is Taiwan a part of China? Should Taiwan be primarily described as a natural end product of a long cultural tradition (a Chinese province), or should it be primarily described as a product of external factors (a small, rapidly developing society with the world's densest population, uniquely situated in the world economy)? For other anthropologists, the volume contains data and analysis that pertain to many current problems: the relationship between ethnicity and social class, the role of historical factors in anthropological explanation, the interaction between religious activities and state control, and the interplay between national and local political and economic systems.--Publisher description
Chinese ritual and politics by Emily Martin( Book )

14 editions published between 1981 and 2010 in English and held by 460 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

As a result of the strength and dominance of the centralized state, ritual action in China often takes its logic from political action. In this book Emily Ahern explores the implications of this. She argues that forms of control attempted ritually on non-human persons (gods and other spirits) in China parallel those forms of control which people regard as effective in ordinary life, namely political control, and draws important conclusions from this. She shows that in China it is possible to discard terms such as 'magic', which imply that acts directed to spirits operate on a different basis from acts in ordinary life. She also challenges claims in anthropology that, since they seem arbitrary and the actions of participants in them highly predictable, rituals support established authority. Her book will be of interest not only to specialists in Chinese studies, but to social anthropologists and others interested in the link between ritual and political processes

Genesis 7 : searching the firmament of the heavens ...( Visual )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Genesis is the name of the space program of the future and is now the pinnacle of Space Exploration. Set in 2082, the Genesis 7 is the flagship of the Genesis fleet. Captain Enoch Andrews, his Niece: Imaging Specialist Priscilla Andrews and Nephew: Lieutenant Donton Andrews are sent on a year-long scientific, fact finding mission to explore the Solar System. Communications specialists Lieutenant Abby Jennings and her ground crew all work hard from Genesis Command to ensure their success. Each episode will have much in the way of scientific fact about the particular planet explored, but also hidden dangers and close calls are to be expected in space exploration. Attached to the bottom of the Genesis 7 Space craft is the Explorer/Lander fondly called "Little G" by its pilot Lieutenant Donton Andrews. The Small craft will land on various planets where adventure soon follows. Think of it like an ultra realistic version of The Magic School Bus in space. It is educational in nature, but the solid storyline and adventure keeps the interest of children without them realizing that they are being taught. The menu would have the terminology used, and maps, graphics, etc used in the film, for the child to study after the episode."--Publisher website
Gestating Subjects: Negotiating Public Health and Pregnancy in Transborder Oaxaca by Rebecca Ella Howes-Mischel( )

1 edition published in 2012 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This grounded theorizing about multiple forms of expertise and discipline illustrates the stakes of the intricate work of statecraft as gendered bodies produce new subjects--namely those of pregnant women and their children. When women's bodies simultaneously exist as both abstracted representations--as statistics and clinical "types"--And as the material site of embodied subjectivity, what are the implications of negotiations about the terms of health, compliance, and responsibility? I approach this central question while "reading over the shoulder" of state, market place, and transnational forces that might appear distant, but are actually well-rooted in local daily life for both practitioners and their pregnant patients. Transborder prenatal care thus involves negotiating the terms of intimacy through both the care of individual bodies and by containing those domains most marked as intimate as under the purview of state-guided institutions
