Baby Lyn Rowe was born in Melbourne in 1962, seven months after her mother Wendy took the new wonder drug for morning sickness called thalidomide. The baby had no arms and legs. For 50 years the Rowe family cared for Lyn - exhausting, round-the-clock work. But then in 2011 Lyn Rowe launched a legal claim against the thalidomide companies. Against the odds, she won a multi-million-dollar settlement. The author is one of the lawyers who ran Lyn's case. He exposes a 50-year cover up of history's most notorious drug, and he details not only the damning case against the German manufacturer, whose ruthless promotion of their lucrative drug in the face of mounting evidence beggars belief. Spanning the world, this book is an epic account of corporate villainy against a backdrop of heroic personal struggle and sacrifice. ISBN: 9781922182098. Our Book No: 17060. $17 AUD.

An American expert on vaccines challenges the modern-day false prophets who have so egregiously misled the public and exposes the opportunism of the lawyers, journalists, celebrities, and politicians who support them.

A London researcher asserted that the combination measles-mumps-rubella vaccine (MMR) caused autism in children (later debunked). Some parents then declared that a mercury-containing preservative in several vaccines was responsible for the disease. Children with autism have also been placed on stringent diets, subjected to high-temperature saunas, bathed in magnetic clay, asked to swallow digestive enzymes and activated charcoal, and injected with various combinations of vitamins, minerals, and acids. He considers the manipulation of science in the popular media and the courtroom, and he explores why society is susceptible to the bad science and risky therapies put forward by many anti-vaccination activists.

New Haven: Yale University Press. 320 pp. Hardback octavo, dustjacket, very good condition (in very good dustjacket). In 1997, Prusiner received a Nobel Prize in physiology or medicine. His struggle to identify the agent responsible for ravaging the brains of animals suffering from scrapie and mad cow disease, and of humans with Creutzfeldt-Jakob disease, had been waged largely alone and in some cases in the face of strenuous disagreement. In this book, Prusiner tells the remarkable story of his discovery of prions - infectious proteins that replicate and cause disease, but surprisingly contain no genetic material - and reveals how superb and meticulous science is actually practiced with talented teams of researchers who persevere. He recounts the frustrations and rewards of years of research and offers fascinating portraits of his peers as they raced to discover the causes of fatal brain diseases. Prusiner’s hypothesis, once considered heresy, now stands as accepted science and the basis for developing diagnoses and eventual cures. This discovery may be relevant to understanding a range of diseases, including Alzheimer’s and Parkinson’s. ISBN: 9780300191141. Our Book No: 17418. $20 AUD.

Deccan like the rest of British India had all the social economic and material ingredients for proliferation of epidemic diseases. Its population lived in unsanitary conditions, consumed contaminated water, and was crowded into wretched houses: extreme poverty, sunk in debt, and suffering from serious food shortage and malnutrition. The existence of mass poverty and its denial by the colonial state made the situation worse. This book argues that the reason for dysentery diarrhoea and bowel complaints was really malnutrition undernourishment and the general poverty of the masses. Even though the diseases were associated with poverty and malnutrition, the British imperial medical establishment continued to blindly adhere to its non-contagion miasmatic ideology. When the imperial state created hundreds of miles of roads and railways, diseases like cholera malaria, smallpox and plague proliferated everywhere. ISBN: 8173043140. Our Book No: 17457. $30 AUD.

520. 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.

Group analysis needs theoretical renewal to remain relevant, and that philosophy is a valuable resource for such thinking, notably Nietzsche, Dewey and Gadamer, each being associated with pragmatic observation of the client's perspective. Also offers a reformulation of the concept of social unconscious, seen as a discursive world of production and articulation. Drawing on contemporary social theories, it chimes with the spirit of Elias's historical approach, eg, the shifting social unconsciousness during the Reformation and revolutionary upheavals in England. The final two essays address the narrative turn in social sciences. The implications of considering persons as story-telling, metaphorical animals is explored, as is the inevitability that personal stories are infused by wider, cultural narratives.
