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 Undetermined and held by 458 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

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 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Oaxacan pregnant women and their bodies are thus key sites for examining the grounded practices through which the recently-shifting terms of modernity in transborder Mexico are constructed, negotiated, and resisted; a modernity troubled by Oaxaca's comparatively high maternal mortality rate. I contextualize an argument about the work of the racializing and gendering processes that underpin public health statistics by analyzing pregnant women's understandings of, and responses to, their encounters with the public health system's practices of modernity. Ultimately, I argue that women's statements about "only doing what the doctor tells me to do" reflect ongoing indigenous communities' narratives about "being modern" while "having beliefs" amidst transnational migrations
