** Richard Lloyd Parry is the winner of the 2018 Rathbones Folio Prize ** In the last years of the twentieth century, Richard Lloyd Parry found himself in the vast island nation of Indonesia, one of the most alluring, mysterious and violent countries in the world. For thirty-two years it had been paralysed by the grip of the dictator and mystic General Suharto. But now the age of Suharto was reaching its end, giving way to a new era of chaos and superstition - the 'time of madness' predicted centuries before by poets and seers. On the island of Borneo, tribesmen embarked on a savage war of head-hunting and cannibalism. Vast jungles burned uncontrollably; money lost its value; there were plane crashes and volcanic eruptions. After the tumultuous fall of Suharto came the vote of independence from Indonesia for the tiny occupied country of East Timor. And it was here, trapped in the besieged compound of the United Nations, that Lloyd Parry reached his own painful, personal crisis.

This fascinating study presents a unique history of psychiatry in the twentieth century. It brings together the memories and narratives of over sixty patients and workers who lived, or were employed, in Severalls Psychiatric Hospital, Essex, UK. Personal accounts are contextualised both in relation to wider developments and issues in twentieth-century mental health, and in relation to policies and changes in the hospital itself. Organised around the theme of space and place, and drawing upon both quantitative and qualitative material, chapters deal with key areas such as gender divisions, power relations, patterns of admission and discharge, treatments, and the daily lives and routines of patients and nurses of both sexes.

In a land where magic is outlawed, a princess with magic talents is caught between loyalty and leading the rebellion in this fantasy series-starter. Magic has been forbidden in Caithe for 200 years. Those born with magic—the Lorngeld—are considered the devil’s children. They are ruthlessly executed by the Caithan Church before they can be corrupted by mind-plague—the volatile madness that afflicts untrained wizards. Only King Kelwyn, artificially gifted with borrowed magic, is exempt from punishment. His daughter may not be so lucky. Impertinent and rebellious, Princess Athaya prefers to spend her time gambling and drinking rather than courting would-be suitors. Discovering that she is a natural-born wizard is an unwelcome surprise. But there are those who believe it is a gift, and that someone with Athaya’s unique ability may be capable of leading the Lorngeld out of persecution. Torn between loyalty to her kingdom, her duty to the Lorngeld, and her own impulsive heart, Athaya must harness her burgeoning magic before it drives her mad, and learn to wield its power before those who fear it—and those who envy it—can destroy her.

A biography of the legendary mountain climber that “rounds out the portrait of Fischer sketched in Krakauer’s best-seller Into Thin Air” (The New York Times Book Review). Scott Fischer found in Mount Everest a perfect landscape for his fearless spirit. Scaling the world’s highest peak tested his skills, his courage, and his endurance. His legendary final expedition—and its tragic outcome—are portrayed in Everest, the 3-D movie adaptation starring Jake Gyllenhaal as Scott Fischer. Now Robert Birkby, renowned outdoor adventure writer and one of Fischer’s close friends, captures in this intimate and stirring portrait of the climber what led him to trek to the top of the world—before he left it altogether. Mountain Madness is “a vivid portrait of a superb athlete whose love of mountain climbing drove everything he did” (Ed Viesturs, author of No Shortcuts to the Top). Also included are a new introduction and updated epilogue, as well as new photos exclusive to the digital edition. “A much fuller picture of a climber widely critiqued in the high-profile coverage after the Everest tragedy.” —Seattle Post-Intelligencer “A fitting homage to one of the great outdoor extremists.” —Kirkus Reviews “Birkby succeeds in illuminating the power mountains can exert over the human soul.” —Publishers Weekly

It is the autumn of 1938 when Julia Kaufmann meets Erich Schmidt while studying medicine at the German University in Prague. With Hitler's army soon to invade the city and the terror of World War II looming, it is the worst of times for a Jew and a German to fall in love. As the excitement of the eugenics movement gives way to outright genocide, and the fear sweeping across Europe grows into madness, Julia and Erich find themselves forced to travel two very different paths--ones which will determine the fate of their love and, ultimately, the fate of their souls. A Perfect Madness takes us on a journey back to a dark time when the fight for survival often eclipsed the fight for the truth. Beautifully and provocatively written, it examines the crippling effects of fear on the human mind, asking painful questions of moral choice we cannot afford to leave unanswered. About the Author: Frank Marsh was a trial attorney for twenty-five years and then a university professor of philosophy, law, and bioethics. He has published six books on bioethics, numerous articles, and scripted documentaries dealing with medicine, genetics, and law. He also is the author of the novel Rebekka's Children.

Criminals usually commit their crimes which generate madness around midnight while innocent people are fast asleep in their beds. It was almost midnight when Erin Andrews witnessed a drug exchange between two boats at Folly Beach near Charleston, S.C.

It was almost midnight when Jess Reynolds was eyewitness to a brutal murder near the Folly Beach harbor; it was almost midnight when a beautiful blond disappears on a cruise ship never to be seen alive again. It was a little after midnight when two bodies washed up on shore believed to be those belonging to two of the missing drug dealers. Now Erin, Jess and Captain Logan Maxwell are thrown together as they try to find the missing girl and end the crime-ridden spree of a cruel murder before any more innocent bystanders are killed. Erin and Logan's growing passion for each other ignites the wrath of a ruthless killer and Erin's generaous nature leads her into deadly peril.
