Addiction and Responsibility

FREEDownload : Addiction and Responsibility

Jeffrey Poland, George Graham, "Addiction and Responsibility"
English | 2011 | ISBN-10: 0262015501 | 320 pages | PDF | 18 MB

Addiction and Responsibility
Addictive behavior threatens not just the addict's happiness and health but also the welfare and well-being of others. It represents a loss of self-control and a variety of other cognitive impairments and behavioral deficits. An addict may say, "I couldn't help myself." But questions arise: are we responsible for our addictions? And what responsibilities do others have to help us? This volume offers a range of perspectives on addiction and responsibility and how the two are bound together. Distinguished contributors — from theorists to clinicians, from neuroscientists and psychologists to philosophers and legal scholars — discuss these questions in essays using a variety of conceptual and investigative tools.

Some contributors offer models of addiction-related phenomena, including theories of incentive sensitization, ego-depletion, and pathological affect; others address such traditional philosophical questions as free will and agency, mind-body, and other minds. Two essays, written by scholars who were themselves addicts, attempt to integrate first-person phenomenological accounts with the third-person perspective of the sciences. Contributors distinguish among moral responsibility, legal responsibility, and the ethical responsibility of clinicians and researchers. Taken together, the essays offer a forceful argument that we cannot fully understand addiction if we do not also understand responsibility.

The Globalization of Supermax Prisons

The Globalization of Supermax Prisons By Loic Wacquant, Jeffrey Ian Ross
2013 | 242 Pages | ISBN: 0813557402 , 0813557410 | PDF | 1 MB

The Globalization of Supermax Prisons
"Supermax" prisons, conceived by the United States in the early 1980s, are typically reserved for convicted political criminals such as terrorists and spies and for other inmates who are considered to pose a serious ongoing threat to the wider community, to the security of correctional institutions, or to the safety of other inmates. Prisoners are usually restricted to their cells for up to twenty-three hours a day and typically have minimal contact with other inmates and correctional staff. examines why nine advanced industrialized countries have adopted the supermax prototype. Featuring essays that look at the U.S.-run prisons of Abu Ghraib and Guantanemo, this collection seeks to determine if the American model is the basis for the establishment of these facilities and considers such issues as the support or opposition to the building of a supermax and why opposition efforts failed; the allegation of human rights abuses within these prisons; and the extent to which the decision to build a supermax was influenced by developments in the United States. Additionally, contributors address such domestic matters as the role of crime rates, media sensationalism, and terrorism in each country's decision to build a supermax prison.

The Dark Side of Modernity

FREEDownload : The Dark Side of Modernity

The Dark Side of Modernity by Jeffrey C. Alexander
English | 2013 | ISBN: 0745648215 , 0745648223 | 200 pages | PDF | 0,7 MB
In this book, one of the world's leading social theorists presents a critical, alarmed, but also nuanced understanding of the post-traditional world we inhabit today. Jeffrey Alexander writes about modernity as historical time and social condition, but also as ideology and utopia.

The Dark Side of Modernity
The idea of modernity embodies the Enlightenment's noble hopes for progress and rationality, but its reality brings great suffering and exposes the destructive impulses that continue to motivate humankind.

Alexander examines how twentieth-century theorists struggled to comprehend the Janus-faced character of modernity, which looks backward and forward at the same time. Weber linked the triumph of worldly asceticism to liberating autonomy but also ruthless domination, describing flights from rationalization as systemic and dangerous. Simmel pointed to the otherness haunting modernity, even as he normalized the stranger. Eisenstadt celebrated Axial Age transcendence, but acknowledged its increasing capacity for barbarity. Parsons heralded American community, but ignored modernity's fragmentations.

Rather than seeking to resolve modernity's contradictions, Alexander argues that social theory should accept its Janus-faced character. It is a dangerous delusion to think that modernity can eliminate evil. Civil inclusion and anti-civil exclusion are intertwined. Alexander enumerates dangerous frictions endemic to modernity, but he also suggests new lines of social amelioration and emotional repair.

Essentials of Plastic Surgery

Essentials of Plastic Surgery By Jeffrey E. Janis
2007 | 941 Pages | ISBN: 1576262081 | scanned PDF | 42 MB

Essentials of Plastic Surgery
is destined to become a favorite with all students of plastic surgery, whether residents in training or experienced practitioners. Small enough to fit in a lab coat pocket, but comprehensive enough to cover the essential topics in aesthetic and reconstructive surgery, this exceptional manual is just the resource that you have been looking for. It will prove invaluable as a quick reference in daily practice, when studying for the boards, or simply as a refresher when confronting a difficult clinical problem.

This book evolved from the outstanding plastic surgery training program at UT Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas where Dr. Janis trained and is on staff. Contributors are drawn from current residents and fellows from the program who share their practical, hands-on experience.

Concise Yet Comprehensive Coverage
This practical manual provides essential information in a convenient and easily accessible outline format. Composed of 88 chapters, the book is divided into 7 separate sections:
Fundamentals and Basics
Skin and Soft Tissue
Head and Neck
Breast
Trunk and Lower Extremity
Hand, Wrist, and Upper Extremity
Aesthetic Surgery

Unlike many handbooks, this book does not skimp on aesthetic surgery information; face lift, neck lift, fillers, and breast augmentation are given equal time with reconstructive topics such as wound healing, flaps, and microsurgery. A detailed bibliography is included at the end of each chapter to direct the reader to additional resource material.

Design Enhances Readability and Practicality

This handbook's design and organization allow quick and easy reading. The outline format permits optimal coverage of information and facilitates retention and understanding. Bulleted lists, tables, boxes, and numerous illustrations help to illuminate key points and important information. In addition, the two-color design increases the text's readability and makes it easier to locate information.

No other plastic surgery handbook provides as much information in such a compact format.
