Du weißt nicht, wer du bist. Du weißt nicht, wer sie sind. Aber sie kennen deinen Namen. Raffiniert, abgründig, manipulativ - Intelligente psychologische Spannung aus der Feder der preisgekrönten irischen Autorin C.J.Cooke, die Sie garantiert bis zur letzten Seite gefangen nehmen wird! Eine Frau erwacht am einsamen Strand einer Insel im Mittelmeer, verletzt und ohne jede Erinnerung. Zum Glück wird sie von vier Freunden, von Beruf Schriftsteller und Autoren, gefunden, die diese Insel als Rückzugsort gewählt haben, um sich in Einsamkeit und karger Abgeschiedenheit ganz dem Bücherschreiben und Schreibprozess widmen zu können. Sie wollen sich um die gestrandete Frau kümmern, bis sie ihr Trauma überwunden hat, ihre Erinnerung zurückgekehrt ist und es ihr gut genug geht, um die Insel zu verlassen. Doch irgendetwas stimmt nicht mit den zwei Männern und zwei Frauen, das kann ihr unfreiwilliger Gast, auch mit Gedächtnisverlust, fühlen: Jeder von ihnen scheint etwas zu verbergen - und: Was wissen sie wirklich über ihren Gast? Zeitgleich sucht man in London verzweifelt nach einer jungen Mutter und Ehefrau, die am helllichten Tag spurlos verschwunden ist. Ohne Geld und Ausweis, ohne Koffer oder Auto, ohne Flugticket und ohne ihre Kinder. Sie ist spurlos verschwunden. Der Ehemann verzweifelt. Stück für Stück lassen die Ermittlungen die perfekte Fassade von Ehe- und Familienglück bröckeln ... Auf intelligente und hochspannende Art und Weise spielt die Autorin C.J. Cooke, die sich an der Universität in Glasgow mit der literarischen Gestaltung psychisch labiler Helden beschäftigt, in ihrem Psycho-Thriller "Broken memory" mit Themen wie Erinnerung, Gedächtnisverlust, Identität und Mutterschaft.

The girl with hair the colour of heather honey came out of the cottage into the thin, spring sunshine and paused before a bed of daffodils nodding in the breeze. Behind her, a fitting background for beauty garbed in a cotton sun bonnet, the low house with its ancient thatch tanned to a dull brown by fifty years of storm and sunshine. In front the garden in which Gladys Brooke took such a pride and delight. A typical old world cottage garden in which was set the house which dated back to the days of the Merrie Monarch. Beyond that a sort of broad lane fringed by tall elms which straggled along until it reached the village street. A shop here and there, a public house in black and white, the smithy, and again the church, with the vicarage under its shadow fronting the Georgian residence of the doctor and again the entrance to the squire's domain...

Broken Memories explores some of the unusual and disabling disturbances of memory or knowledge to which people have fallen prey through brain disease or accident. These patients give important glimpses into how memory functions and how knowledge is acquired and disposed. They make us aware of how brain structures underpin remembering in different circumstances, and how different functional components in remembering may interrelate. The authors are leading international researchers, with extensive expertise in psychological and neuropsychological research. In addition to addressing questions about the way memory functions, the case studies presented here also give a picture of the person caught up in the memory failures and a glimpse of the ways in which other aspects of mental life, including personality, habit, support and attitude, can interact with the demonstrable cognitive disturbance.

This reconstruction of the work of 'dialectical memory' in Hegel raises the fundamental question of the principle that presides on the articulation of history and indicates in Hegel's philosophy two alternative models of conceiving history: one that grounds history on 'ethical memory,' the other that sees justice as the moving principle of history.

C.L. Rawlins previous book, Sky's Witness, was praised by Jim Harrison for the "spaciousness of its thought and the antic wit of its style." Broken Country takes us back to the source: Wyoming's remote Salt River Range, where the author's life changed for good in the summer of 1973. Thus--with a rift between himself and his family, his heritage, and a nation at war--Rawlins begins a journey to the American interior. He takes to the high country with a team of horses, three dogs, and a friend named Mitchell Black to watch over a herd of sheep. And there he encounters not only a rugged landscape but his own mythic legacy: the frontier West. "To be found," he writes, "you must be lost or lose yourself...And to be whole, you must know that you are, or can be, or will be, broken." Here is fresh air, ferocious mirth and a hint of silent terror as Rawlins tackles the questions we long to ask of ourselves and our tangled world. As our reach entends to the vastness of the land, it also deepens to touch the mysteries of the heart. In Broken Country we find both storm and shelter as the author guides us to the place of understanding.

Postcolonial Film: History, Empire, Resistance examines films of the later twentieth and early twenty-first centuries from postcolonial countries around the globe. In the mid twentieth century, the political reality of resistance and decolonization lead to the creation of dozens of new states, forming a backdrop to films of that period. Towards the century’s end and at the dawn of the new millennium, film continues to form a site for interrogating colonization and decolonization, though against a backdrop that is now more neo-colonial than colonial and more culturally imperial than imperial. This volume explores how individual films emerged from and commented on postcolonial spaces and the building and breaking down of the European empire. Each chapter is a case study examining how a particular film from a postcolonial nation emerges from and reflects that nation’s unique postcolonial situation. This analysis of one nation’s struggle with its coloniality allows each essay to investigate just what it means to be postcolonial.

A Caregiver’s Tale When Eve suffered a near-fatal brain aneurysm, Madonna Siles, her housemate and friend, too quickly found herself making critical short- and long-term medical care decisions without any help. When the insurance and financial resources ran out and the conventional therapy providers discharged zombie-like Eve to the homecare of a solitary caregiver, both their futures seemed hopeless. Instead of giving up, Madonna Siles drew on life experience and her marketing career to develop a rehabilitation program that harnessed the power of the subconscious mind. Using motivational techniques borrowed from the advertising world, she appealed to Eve’s subconscious to bypass the brain damage and restore normal functioning. In three short years, even the doctors were amazed at Eve’s recovery and return to a near-normal life. Part memoir, part recovery manual, Brain, Heal Thyself is a guidebook for thousands of shell-shocked individuals who suddenly find themselves having to make life and death decisions for those they love. With humor, warmth, and arresting honesty, Madonna Siles’s lively narrative closely examines not only the patient’s recovery, but also the crucial role of caregivers—and the emotional, financial, and practical pressures they face.

This unique book recounts the experience of facing one's death solely from the dying person's point of view rather than from the perspective of caregivers, survivors, or rescuers. Such unmediated access challenges assumptions about the emotional and spiritual dimensions of dying, showing readers that—along with suffering, loss, anger, sadness, and fear—we can also feel courage, love, hope, reminiscence, transcendence, transformation, and even happiness as we die. A work that is at once psychological, sociological, and philosophical, this book brings together testimonies of those dying from terminal illness, old age, sudden injury or trauma, acts of war, and the consequences of natural disasters and terrorism. It also includes statements from individuals who are on death row, in death camps, or planning suicide. Each form of dying addressed highlights an important set of emotions and narratives that often eclipses stereotypical renderings of dying and reflects the numerous contexts in which this journey can occur outside of hospitals, nursing homes, and hospices. Chapters focus on common emotional themes linked to dying, expanding and challenging them through first-person accounts and analyses of relevant academic and clinical literature in psycho-oncology, palliative care, gerontology, military history, anthropology, sociology, cultural and religious studies, poetry, and fiction. The result is an all-encompassing investigation into an experience that will eventually include us all and is more surprising and profound than anyone can imagine.
