Head Cases - Stories of Brain Injury and Its Aftermath (Paperback): Michael Paul Mason Head Cases - Stories of Brain Injury and Its Aftermath (Paperback)
Michael Paul Mason
R361 Discovery Miles 3 610 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

"Head Cases" takes us into the dark side of the brain in an astonishing sequence of stories, at once true and strange, from the world of brain injury.

Michael Paul Mason is one of an elite group of experts who appear in the wake of tragic accidents and coordinate care that can last a lifetime. On the road with Mason, we encounter survivors of brain injuries as they struggle to map and make sense of the new worlds they inhabit. We meet a snowboarder whose life became permanently surreal after an errant jump; an "ultraviolent" child who has lost the brain's instinctive check on the impulse to strike out at others; a young man who cannot cry; and an Iraq war veteran whose odd maladies suggest that brain injury will be the war's most conspicuous legacy.

Underlying each of their stories is an exploration into the brain and its mysteries. When injured, the brain must figure out how to heal itself, reorganizing its physiology in order to do the job, and Mason gives us a series of vivid glimpses into brain science, the last frontier of medicine. We come away in awe of the miracles of the brain's workings and astonished at the fragility of the brain and the sense of self, life, and order that resides there. "Head Cases" echoes both Oliver Sacks and Raymond Carver, and is at once illuminating and deeply affecting.

R376 Discovery Miles 3 760 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

Kat Severn is a daughter of privilege, born to money and power. Half her relatives are military legends, the other form the political and economic power running Nu new England, the principle city of the post-war, early 22nd century Federation of America, Britain, Canada, Australia and New Zealand. She has been raised only to be beautiful and marry well, but looking for a chance to prove herself through merit, rather than connections, Kat decides to join the Fleet, against the wishes of her powerful parents. If ensuring she doesn't disappoint her family's high expectations wasn't enough, Kat is soon leading a mission to rescue a kidnapped child. Then she and her high-tech computer Safi are sent into Alaska where a volcanic eruption has caused famine and a complete breakdown of society. After varying degrees of success, Kat leads a rebellion against her commander to prevent a cohort of military hawks from turning a peaceful ceremony into a bloodbath, with repercussions that can only herald another war. For Kat, failure is not an option.

How to Stop Fascism - History, Ideology, Resistance (Hardcover): Paul Mason How to Stop Fascism - History, Ideology, Resistance (Hardcover)

R415 Discovery Miles 4 150 Ships in 12 - 17 working days

'For its historical depth, analytical vigour and mobilizational potential, this book is unparalleled. How to Stop Fascism is a visceral reminder of what's at stake, and every page is an urgent invitation to resist' David Lammy MP 'History is a reminder that we are never far from the risk of living under fascism. It can happen anywhere. Mason tells that history with passion and sincerity, framing it perfectly against the present' Angela Saini, author of Superior: The Return of Race Science The bestselling author of PostCapitalism offers a guide to resisting the far right The far right is on the rise across the world. From Modi's India to Bolsonaro's Brazil and Erdogan's Turkey, fascism is not a horror that we have left in the past; it is a recurring nightmare that is happening again - and we need to find a better way to fight it. In How to Stop Fascism, Paul Mason offers a radical, hopeful blueprint for resisting and defeating the new far right. The book is both a chilling portrait of contemporary fascism, and a compelling history of the fascist phenomenon: its psychological roots, political theories and genocidal logic. Fascism, Mason powerfully argues, is a symptom of capitalist failure, one that has haunted us throughout the twentieth century and into the twenty-first. History shows us the conditions that breed fascism, and how it can be successfully overcome. But it is up to us in the present to challenge it, and time is running out. From the ashes of Covid-19, we have an opportunity to create a fairer, more equal society. To do so, we must ask ourselves: what kind of world do we want to live in? And what are we going to do about it?

Paul Mason's father was a policeman. He was also a member of a sadistic paedophile ring. He would keep Paul locked up and naked in a tiny cupboard under the stairs of their home before sexually abusing him. This cycle of abuse continued for several years and also affected his brother. The cupboard became a horrific prison where fear and terror filled his every moment. The Cupboard Under the Stairs is a story of abuse at the mercy of adults whom Paul should have been able to trust. There followed a life almost destroyed by their actions. It is the harrowing story of one man's fight for justice and an end to the horrific memories that still haunt him daily.
