Grey Walter, W. The Living Brain
London: Gerald Duckworth, 1953. First Edition. Hardcover. Very Good/Good. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall B0000CII0N W. Grey Walter (February 19, 1910 - May 6, 1977) was a neurophysiologist and robotician. Walter was born in Kansas City, Missouri, in 1910. He was brought to England in 1915, and educated at Westminster School and afterwards in King's College, Cambridge, in 1931. He failed to obtain a research fellowship in Cambridge and so turned to doing basic and applied neurophysiological research in hospitals, in London, from 1935 to 1939 and then at the Burden Neurological Institute in Bristol, from 1939 to 1970. He also carried out research work in the United States, in the Soviet Union and in various other places in Europe. He married twice, and had two sons from his first marriage and one from the second. According to his eldest son, Nicolas Walter, "he was politically on the left, a communist fellow-traveller before the Second World War and an anarchist sympathiser after it." Throughout his life he was a pioneer in the field of cybernetics. In 1970 he was in a severe automobile accident and died seven years later on May 6, 1977 without fully recovering. As a young man Walter was greatly influenced by the work of the famous Russian physiologist Ivan Pavlov. He visited the lab of Hans Berger, who invented the electroencephalograph, or EEG machine, for measuring electrical activity in the brain. Walter produced his own versions of Berger's machine with improved capabilities, which allowed it to detect a variety of brain wave types ranging from the high speed alpha waves to the slow delta waves observed during sleep. In the 1930s Walter made a number of discoveries using his EEG machines at Burden Neurological Institute in Bristol. He was the first to determine by triangulation the surface location of the strongest alpha waves within the occipital lobe (alpha waves originate from the thalamus deep within the brain). Walter demonstrated the use of delta waves to locate brain tumours or lesions responsible for epilepsy. He developed the first brain topography machine based on EEG, using on an array of spiral-scan CRTs connected to high-gain amplifiers. During the Second World War he worked on scanning radar technology and guided missiles, which may have influenced his subsequent alpha wave scanning hypothesis of brain activity. In the 1960s Walter also went on to discover the contingent negative variation (CNV) effect (or readiness potential) whereby a negative spike of electrical activity appears in the brain half a second prior to a person being consciously aware of movements that he is about to make. Intriguingly, this effect brings into question the very notion of consciousness or free will, and should be considered as part of a person's overall reaction time to events. Walter's experiments with stroboscopic light, described in The Living Brain, inspired the development of a Dream Machine by the artist Brion Gysin and technician Ian Sommerville.

Clej, Alina A Genealogy of the Modern Self: Thomas De Quincey and the Intoxication of Writing
Stanford: Stanford University Press, 1995. First Edition. Cloth. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0804723931 This work argues that Thomas De Quincey's literary output, which is both a symptom and an effect of his addictions to opium and writing, plays an important and unacknowledged role in the development of modern and modernist forms of subjectivity. It also shows that intoxication, whether in the strict medical sense or in its less technical meaning ('strong excitement', 'trance', 'ecstasy'), is central to the ways in which modernity, literary modernity in particular, functions and defines itself. In its theoretical and practical implications, intoxication symbolizes and often comes to constitute the condition of the alienated artist in the age of the market. The author argues that through his confessional writings De Quincey is in many ways responsible for defining the modern self, that is, a post-Romantic form of subjectivity based on transgressive techniques, simulation, and bricolage.

Drug Treatment: What Works? is a cutting edge survey of the latest developments in these treatments, and it sets out to ask some of the crucial questions in the treatment of drug abusers; including: * Which treatments work with what sorts of abusers? * What are the key indicators of likely success? * Does coercion work or must treatment be freely entered into? * Is drug testing an essential backup for successful treatment? Featuring contributions from some the leading figures in this field, Drug Treatment: What Works? will be essential reading for students, academics and professionals studying drug treatment in the areas criminology, social policy and medicine.

Harrison, Larry (Editor) Alcohol Problems in the Community
London: Routledge, 1996. First Edition. Hardcover. New/No Jacket, as Issued. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0415110424 Community surveys reveal that about 6% of the adult male and 1% of the adult female population in England and Wales are drinking at high risk levels. Alcohol Problems in the Community examines the implications of recent community care legislation for government policy on alcohol. The first part of the book begins with a report on recent US research on the role of alcohol in the perpetration of child abuse and recent research on young people's drinking problems. This is followed by a study on the prevalence of drinking problems amongst older people which has been underestimated. In the second half of the book empirical evidence is presented on the particular difficulties faced by ethnic, migrant and homeless groups and this emphasis on the centrality of social disadvantage leads on to a consideration of a specific social work role in the assessment and management of alcohol-related problems. Alcohol Problems in the Community is aimed at social work practitioners and students on prequalifying, qualifying and postqualifying social work courses, and it addresses key social work issues in relation to poverty, homelessness, discrimination and drinking problems.

Musto, David F. and Korsmeyer, Pamela The Quest for Drug Control: Politics and Federal Policy in a Period of Increasing Substance Abuse, 1963-1981
New Haven: Yale University Press, 2002. First Edition. Hardcover. New/New. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall 0300090366 Between 1960 and 1980 various administrations attempted to deal with a rising tide of illicit drug use that was unprecedented in US history. This is a close look at the politics and bureaucracy of drug control policy during those years, showing how they changed during the presidencies of Johnson, Nixon, Ford and Carter and how much current federal drug-control policies owe to those earlier efforts. David Musto and Pamela Korsmeyer base their analysis on a unique collection of 5000 pages of White House documents from the period. These documents reveal the intense debates that took place over drug policy. They show, for example, that staffers and cabinet officers who were charged with narcotics policy were often influenced by the cultural currents of their times, and when the public reacted in an extreme fashion to rising drug use, officials were disinclined to adopt modified policies that might have been more realistic. Musto and Korsmeyer's investigation into the decision-making processes that shaped past drug control efforts in the United States provides essential background as creative approaches to the drug problem are sought for the future.

Gavit, John Palmer Opium
New York: Brentano's, 1927. First US Edition. Cloth. Good/No Jacket. 8vo - over 7¾" - 9¾" tall B00085YDU0 The author, a sometime managing editor of The New York Evening Post, audited the November 1924-February 1925 International Opium Conferences in Geneva convened under the auspices of the League of Nations. He reports on it and attempts to pull together the main threads of the problem as a whole, as the Conference, a bewildering and perplexing affair that highlighted the conflicting agendas of the participating nations and the fact that most of the participants had little or no understanding of the subject, was ultimately a very confusing public failure that accomplished nothing. As a result, the first international conferences on the subject were also the last. Boards grubby, some wear. Rare in any condition (Book ref. 037575) £25.00
