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/ASIN: 9780300191141. Our Book No: 17418. $20 AUD.

Explores the implications of a repressor personality style for physiology and health, including links to stress and its effects on the immune system and on diseases such as cancer.

An original and ambitious endeavour to connect group analysis to philosophy, history, and modern social theory.

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.

468. Wheen, Francis (2009). Strange Days Indeed: The Golden Age of Paranoia (1st ed). London: Fourth Estate. 344 pp. Paperback octavo, very good condition, minor edgewear. Francis Wheen provides an hilarious and jaw-dropping chronicle of the 1970s, golden age of the paranoid style. The 1970s evokes memories of Abba and Fawlty Towers, but it was really a theme park of mass paranoia on the verge of a collective nervous breakdown, huddled over candles waiting for the next terrorist bomb, kidnapping or food shortage warning. Whether it was Nixon's demented behaviour in the White House, Idi Amin, Harold Wilson's insistence that 'they' were out to get him, or the trial of Rupert Bear, it is a story too fantastic to be true. With his acute sense of the absurd he exposes the sickly decade in which nations were brought to a halt by power cuts, military coups, economic anarchy and the arrival of Uri Geller.

London: Arrow Books. 107 pp. Paperback trade, very good condition, figures, pages lightly toned, minor edgewear. British psychologist Richard Wiseman writes an exciting and unusual self-help book that shows a new way of creating opportunities at work and in personal life. In a recent series of psychological experiments, volunteers were assigned a counting task watching a film, and after just a few seconds a man dressed as a gorilla slowly walked into view, beat his chest at the camera, and sauntered off. Remarkably, almost none of the people watching the film noticed the gorilla. Exactly the same psychological mechanisms that cause people to miss the gorilla also make them miss unexpected but vitally important opportunities in their professional and personal lives. This book outlines the scientific evidence and thinking behind this remarkable new phenomenon, and shows you how you can spot gorillas in your life - and what to do when you see one.
