Unter der strengen Obhut ihres Vaters, ein presbyterianischer Priester, wachsen die Brüder Norman und Paul in der unberührten Wildnis Montanas der 30er Jahre auf. Zwei Brüder, wie sie gegensätzlicher nicht sein können: Paul, provozierend und aufsässig, Norman, ruhig und besonnen. Ihr Vater erzieht seine Söhne im Einklang mit Gott und der Natur und vermittelt ihnen die mythischen und mystischen Seiten des Lebens. Ihre gemeinsame Leidenschaft: Das Fliegenfischen am Fluss, der selbst ein Teil der Ewigkeit ist. Der Kindheit entwachsen ist Paul Jounalist geworden, verfällt dem Alkohol, macht Spielschulden und landet wiederholt im Gefängis. Der intellektuelle Norman hingegen ist zurückhaltend und träumt davon, die Welt ausserhalb Missoulas zu entdecken. Bald muss der eine Bruder die Bedeutung des Wortes Familientreue erfahren, nachdem der andere in grössere Schwierigkeiten denn je geraten ist. (Quelle: Umschlagtext)

A suburban town whose preconceptions are shattered in the wake of a global event dubbed 'The Departure' (which may or may not have been the Biblical 'rapture'), in which some people were taken and others left behind.

Scholars' open debate paper on the World Health Organization ICD-11 Gaming Disorder proposal by Espen J Aarseth( )

1 edition published in 2017 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Concerns about problematic gaming behaviors deserve our full attention. However, we claim that it is far from clear that these problems can or should be attributed to a new disorder. The empirical basis for a Gaming Disorder proposal, such as in the new ICD-11, suffers from fundamental issues. Our main concerns are the low quality of the research base, the fact that the current operationalization leans too heavily on substance use and gambling criteria, and the lack of consensus on symptomatology and assessment of problematic gaming. The act of formalizing this disorder, even as a proposal, has negative medical, scientific, public-health, societal, and human rights fallout that should be considered. Of particular concern are moral panics around the harm of video gaming. They might result in premature application of diagnosis in the medical community and the treatment of abundant false-positive cases, especially for children and adolescents. Second, research will be locked into a confirmatory approach, rather than an exploration of the boundaries of normal versus pathological. Third, the healthy majority of gamers will be affected negatively. We expect that the premature inclusion of Gaming Disorder as a diagnosis in ICD-11 will cause significant stigma to the millions of children who play video games as a part of a normal, healthy life. At this point, suggesting formal diagnoses and categories is premature: the ICD-11 proposal for Gaming Disorder should be removed to avoid a waste of public health resources as well as to avoid causing harm to healthy video gamers around the world
