The wave of ethnic conflict that has swept across Eastern Europe, the former Soviet Union and Africa, has led to fear that these conflicts are contagious.

Ethnic conflict is not caused directly by intergroup differences or centuries-old feuds. The collapse of the Soviet Union did not simply uncork ethnic passions long suppressed. They look instead at how anxieties over security, competition for resources, breakdown in communication with the government, and the inability to make enduring commitments lead ethnic groups into conflict. Considers the strategic interactions that underlie ethnic conflict and its effective management. ISBN: 0691016909. Our Book No: 15049. $25 AUD.

235. Watters, Evan (2010). Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche (Australian ed). Melbourne: Scribe Publications. 306 pp. Paperback, very good condition, minor edgewear. Ethan Watters reveals that the most devastating consequence of the spread of American culture has not been its golden arches or bomb craters, but the bulldozing of the human psyche itself: it is in the process of homogenising the way the world goes mad. For the past 30 years, America has been the world leader in mental-health research, and Western definitions of mental illness are prevailing over indigenous beliefs around the globe. He travels from China to Tanzania to bring home an unsettling conclusion: as America introduces Westernised ways of treating mental illnesses, it is in fact spreading the diseases. In post-tsunami Sri Lanka, Watters reports on the Western trauma counsellors who, in their rush to help, inadvertently trampled local expressions of grief, suffering, and healing. In Japan, Watters reveals the truth about a multi-million-dollar campaign by one of the world's biggest drug companies to change the Japanese experience of depression - literally marketing the disease along with the drug. By examining the Western impact on the psyches of people in other cultures, Watters forces us to take a fresh look at our own approaches to mental health and healing. It turns out that we may have as much to learn from other cultures' beliefs about the mind as we have to teach them. ISBN: 9781921640643. Our Book No: 18023. $30 AUD.
