  • - Depression som politisk problem og kunstens alternative fortællinger
    af Mikkel Krause Frantzen
    157,95 - 198,95 kr.

    Depression er den mest udbredte psykiske lidelse på verdensplan. I En fremtid uden fremtid argumenterer Mikkel Krause Frantzen for, at man kan kende et samfund på dets sygdomme, og viser, hvordan depressionen peger på en række kriser i tiden: gældskrise, det konkurrencestyrede arbejdsmarked, krav om individuel lykke og selvoptimering. Med konstateringen af, at den psykiske lidelse ikke er den enkeltes problem, men vores fælles problem, udfolder Frantzen en kulturkritisk samtidsdiagnose og inddrager en række bøger, film og kunstværker som alternativ forestillingshorisont. Mikkel Krause Frantzen (f.1983) Ph.d. i Litteraturvidenskab fra Københavns Universitet, boganmelder på Dagbladet Politiken og ansat som postdoc ved Aalborg Universitet. Han har tidligere udgivet Lars Skinnebach – en monografi (Arena, 2013). Anmeldelser ”Relevant og stimulerende læsning for enhver, der er interesseret i sit samfund” – Weekendavisen "Mikkel Frantzens analyse af depressionen i bogen ’En fremtid uden fremtid’ er en af de mest vellykkede, vi har set. " – Information "Glimrende… Bogen bør læses af alle ansatte i psykiatrien i Danmark og være pensum for uddannelsen af alle psykiatere og psykologer, der fortsat hårdnakket tror på, at depression skyldes kemiske ubalancer i hjernen." ♥♥♥♥ – Politiken

    Tredje bind i rækken af Carsten Jensens storsælgende debatbøger. De færreste fødes som flygtninge. Ingen ønsker at dø som flygtning. Alligevel taler vi om flygtninge, som om det var en identitet på linje med dansk, svensk eller tysk. Flygtninge er mennesker, der er blevet tvunget til at bryde med alt, og alligevel har de en bagage med, håb og drømme, ideer om, hvem de er, og hvem de gerne vil være. De er hovedspringere på timetervippen, der håber på vand i bassinet. Tyngdeloven kan man dø af. Derfor må faldet blive en kunstart. Dette er ikke en bog om flygtninge, men om hovedspringere og mennesker på vej.

Han indledte sin karriere som illustrator og reklametegner, inden han i 1992 begyndte at skabe kortere tegneserier for en række italienske magasiner. Med fortællingen ”Appunti per una storia di guerra” (”Noter fra en krigshistorie”, ikke udsendt på dansk) brød han i 2005 igennem til et internationalt publikum, og bogen vandt bl.a. hovedprisen ved Europas største tegneseriefestival i den franske by Angoulême. I 2018 modtog han ved samme festival kritikerprisen for ”Børnenes jord”, der nu bliver det første af hans værker, danske læsere får mulighed for at stifte bekendtskab med.

    'Absolutely stunning. . . a formidable achievement. A six-part historical thriller that is essential reading for both our politicians and the ordinary citizen' Kai BirdBest-selling historian Serhii Plokhy returns with an illuminating exploration of the atomic age through the history of six nuclear disasters In 2011, a 43-foot-high tsunami crashed into a nuclear power plant in Fukushima, Japan. In the following days, explosions would rip buildings apart, three reactors would go into nuclear meltdown, and the surrounding area would be swamped in radioactive water. It is now considered one of the costliest nuclear disasters ever. But Fukushima was not the first, and it was not the worst. . . In Atoms and Ashes, acclaimed historian Serhii Plokhy tells the tale of the six nuclear disasters that shook the world: Bikini Atoll, Kyshtym, Windscale, Three Mile Island, Chernobyl and Fukushima. Based on wide-ranging research and witness testimony, Plokhy traces the arc of each crisis, exploring in depth the confused decision-making on the ground and the panicked responses of governments to contain the crises and often cover up the scale of the catastrophe. As the world increasingly looks to renewable and alternative sources of energy, Plokhy lucidly argues that the atomic risk must be understood in explicit terms, but also that these calamities reveal a fundamental truth about our relationship with nuclear technology: that the thirst for power and energy has always trumped safety and the cost for future generations.

    Critical Geography reexamines traditional Western and historical understandings of geography while expanding these investigations to new realms. Borrowing its name from the subdiscipline of geography that questions and challenges power structures, inequality, and the dominant ideologies shaping physical space, Critical Geography explores how space, place, and communities are influenced by social, economic, ecological, and political forces. By critically analyzing these dynamics, the artists and writers in the publication provoke conversations around social justice, environmental sustainability, and transformative change. Critical Geography surveys a diverse range of image-based practices, representing artists from photographers and storytellers whose works shed light on systemic oppression, violence, and urgent environmental concerns to image-makers who appropriate mapping, social media, and technology to explore inequality in colonial and post-colonial contexts.

    Der Klimawandel, ist er die Ursache für die Bedrohungen auf unserem Planeten? «Nein, so der Ökonom Hartmut Stieger, der Klimawandel ist nicht Ursache, der Klimawandel ist Folge. Folge der irrwitzigen Vorstellung, dass wir wirtschaftliches Wachstum und Wohlstand beliebig mehren können, ohne Ende.»Die Erde ist erschöpft. Wir, die Menschen, die sie ausgepowert haben, sind es auch. Was ist da falsch gelaufen? Hartmut Stieger stellt neue Denkanstöße zur Diskussion: Es ist der faszinierende Verlauf der Turgot-Kurve, die überraschend einfach erklärt: So greifen Konkurrenz und grenzenloses Effizienzstreben ineinander und drohen das bewährte Marktsystem und letztlich das Leben auf unserem Planeten zu zerstören. In Salon-Manier ergänzt Stieger wertvolle Informationen aus Wirtschaft und Umweltforschung um autobiografische Episoden und rüttelt als Vater, Großvater und Urgroßvater und somit Vertreter der vor-vor-letzten Generation auf mit «Neun Provokationen». Gibt es einen Ausweg aus der Misere? Für die Zukunft sieht Stieger eine überraschende Perspektive, die bereits in aller Munde ist: Künstliche Intelligenz. Sie sei nicht nur Gefahr, wie von vielen befürchtet, sie könnte Teil der Lösung werden

    Drawing on the Pakistan Earthquake Reconstruction and Recovery Project (PERRP), this volume explores the sociocultural side of post-disaster infrastructure reconstruction. As the latter is often fraught with delays and even abandonment--one cause being ineffective interactions between construction and local people--PERRP used anthropological and participatory approaches. Along with strong construction management, such approaches led to the rebuilding being completed on time. As disasters are increasing in number and intensity, so too will be the need for reconstruction, for which PERRP has lessons to offer.

    "A perfectly pitched medical mystery that will captivate you from page one."—Wes Ely, MD, MPH, author of Every Deep-Drawn Breath, winner of the 2022 Christopher Award for Literature.A suspenseful, authoritative account of how the battle against a mid-century polio epidemic sparked a revolution in medical care.Americans knew polio as the "summer plague." In countries further North, however, the virus arrived later in the year, slipping into the homes of healthy children as the summer waned and the equinox approached. It was described by one writer as "the autumn ghost."Intensive care units and mechanical ventilation are the crucial foundation of modern medical care: without them, the appalling death toll of the COVID-19 pandemic would be even higher. In The Autumn Ghost, Dr. Hannah Wunsch traces the origins of these two innovations back to a polio epidemic in the autumn of 1952. Drawing together compelling testimony from doctors, nurses, medical students, and patients, Wunsch relates a gripping tale of an epidemic that changed the world.In vivid, captivating chapters, Wunsch tells the dramatic true story of how insiders and iconoclasts came together in one overwhelmed hospital in Copenhagen to save the lives of many polio patients dying of respiratory failure. Their radical advances in care marked a turning point in the treatment of patients around the world—from the rise of life support and the creation of intensive care units to the evolution of rehabilitation medicine.Moving and informative, The Autumn Ghost will leave readers in awe of the courage of those who battled the polio epidemic, and grateful for the modern medical care they pioneered.

    Continuidad y resiliencia: dos palabras que podrían dirigirse al mismo destino, aunque variaran en el tiempo de llegada. Según el diccionario de Merriam-Webster, la definición de continuidad es "conexión, sucesión o unión ininterrumpida". Utilizando este mismo recurso, la definición de resiliencia es "la habilidad de recuperarse o ajustarse fácilmente a la mala fortuna o al cambio". Aunque una vida ininterrumpida, libre de desgracia, pueda parecer maravillosa, es en los retos, en los cambios, donde aprendemos las mayores lecciones. Este libro se ha escrito con 51 años de experiencia personal y casi 30 años de experiencia profesional en la gestión de operaciones empresariales en todo el mundo, llueva, truene o relampaguee. Ambos aspectos han dado lugar a importantes lecciones aprendidas e historias de continuidad y resiliencia.
