Описание: Ethics in the Gutter: Empathy and Historical Fiction in Comics explores an often-overlooked genre of graphic narratives: those that fictionalize historical realities. While autographics, particularly those that place the memoirist in the context of larger cultural conversations, have been the objects of sustained study, fictional graphic narratives that-as Linda Hutcheon has put it-both "enshrine and question" history are also an important area of study. By bringing narratology and psychological theory to bear on a range of graphic narratives, Kate Polak seeks to question how the form utilizes point of view and the gutter as ethical tools that shape the reader's empathetic reactions to the content. This book's most important questions surround how we receive and interpret representations of history, considering the ways in which what we think we know about historical atrocities can be at odds with the convoluted circumstances surrounding violence. Beginning with a new look at Watchmen, and including examinations of such popular series as Scalped and Hellblazer as well as Bayou and Deogratias, the book questions how graphic narratives create an alternative route by which to understand large-scale violence. Ethics in the Gutter explores how graphic narrative representations of violence can teach readers about the possibilities and limitations of empathy and ethics.
Описание: In the explanation of musculoskeletal disorders, the skeleton is usually put forward, and the muscles tend to be forgotten. This seems to be a mistake, and leads to some common misunderstandings, like osteoarthritis being the cause of joint pain, rheumatoid arthritis being an auto-immune disease, disc herniation as the cause of low back pain, meniscal injury as the cause of knee pain, etc. This in turn will lead to inappropriate treatments like painkillers - which sometimes kill the patient, and anyway never treat the root of the pain - or to avoidable surgery. Misunderstanding the role of muscle contractures in other ailments like scoliosis or migraine has not allowed so far a disease-modifying treatment. All the above-mentioned disorders can however be cured, in most cases, by manually treating the causal muscle contractures, which is rather simple. This book explains the origin, the mechanism and the consequences of muscle contractures, as well as the pathomechanisms of joint pains, scoliosis, migraine, and several other diseases, and the principles of their treatment. We will present several research studies showing the efficiency of a simple manual treatment of the contractured muscles that are the prime movers of these diseases.

For Orthodox Jews, immersion in a ritual bath—the mikveh—is the cornerstone of family life and is central to Jewish women’s practice of their faith. Yet women from across the Jewish spectrum frequent the mikveh, often for surprising personal reasons. Roused by her own immersion experience, for years Varda Polak-Sahm, a secular Jew, patiently observed and interviewed women at the mikveh, gaining unprecedented access to this hidden world. "The House of Secrets" offers a richly nuanced, uncensored look at an experience that is for some holy and for others coercive, ultimately illuminating the remarkable power of ritual immersion.
