Psychiatry and Decolonisation in Uganda (Mental Health in Historical Perspective)

by Yolana Pringle

This open access book investigates psychiatry in Uganda during the years of decolonisation. It examines the challenges facing a new generation of psychiatrists as they took over responsibility for psychiatry at the end of empire, and explores the ways psychiatric practices were tied to shifting political and development priorities, periods of instability, and a broader context of transnational and international exchange. At its heart is a question that has concerned psychiatrists globally since the mid-twentieth century: how to bridge the social and cultural gap between psychiatry and its patients? Bringing together archival research with oral histories, Yolana Pringle traces how this question came to dominate both national and international discussions on mental health care reform, includ...

Christianity, Islam, and Orisa-Religion: Three Traditions in Comparison and Interaction (The Anthropology of Christianity Book 18)

by J.D.Y. Peel

A free ebook version of this title is available through Luminos, University of California Press’s open access publishing program for monographs. Visit www.luminosoa.org to learn more. The Yoruba of southwestern Nigeria are exceptional for the copresence among them of three religious traditions: Islam, Christianity, and the indigenous orisa religion. In this comparative study, at once historical and anthropological, Peel explores the intertwined character of the three religions and the dense imbrication of religion in all aspects of Yoruba history up to the present. For over 400 years, the Yoruba have straddled two geocultural spheres: one reaching north over the Sahara to the world of Islam, the other linking them to the Euro-American world via the Atlantic. These two external spheres we...

by Patrick Auerbach

2 Manuscripts

Book 1: Egyptian Gods - The Gods and Goddesses of Ancient Egypt
Worshiped for over three-fifths of recorded history, ancient Egypt's Gods and Goddesses are among the most fascinating of human civilization.

The lives of pharaohs and commoners alike were dominated by the need to honor, worship, and pacify the huge pantheon of deities.

The Term Democracy throughout the Islamic History

by Fatima Al-Barwari

The long-lasting swell of the „Arab Spring“ [arab. al-Rabīʻ al-ʻArabī], a Nations Movement which has extended from its Birthplace in Tunisia to the Arabian Peninsula and beyond, was at its core a national call for social and political change and security, fairness and equality under a noncorrupted rule of law. Most importantly it was a „Bread Revolution“ [arab. thawrat al-ʻaysh], reflecting the radical hardships of affording nourishments the people have been facing daily.For similar demands, the people of Egypt, Libya, Sudan, and Algeria aroused and infected States such as Syria, Yemen, and Bahrain. Through my researches I was aiming to discover the realism behind some voices chanting for Democracy during the revolutionary „Arab Spring“ uprisings all over the Middle East a...

Computer Curious: Stories and lessons from the dawn of the digital age in africa

by Marc Maxmeister

Back in the early 2000s, before Facebook existed, before Google was a verb, African youths were flocking to the Internet. I trekked across Gambia, Senegal, and Ghana in search of what drew them to the Internet. After visits to 30 schools and hundreds of Interviews, I discovered that curiosity and a drive to create in a culture where education stifles creativity was the deeper reason behind the allure of the Internet.

In this book I focus on why and how computer culture evolved in Africa, and wrap it in my own adventures of exotic discomfort on the open road, ill-conceived conceits to bring Internet to remote villages, rocket yams in the name of science, wandering through a refugee camp to deliver a letter, hobnobbing with power mongers in the capitol, and generally seeing how ...

by Christian Galacar

On a warm May evening in the spring of 1979, the people of Heartsridge, Massachusetts, are living the American dream. Families are gathered for barbecues. Kids are playing in front yards.

Meanwhile, Kara Price stumbles home through the woods, raped and beaten, her life shattered by a wicked act of violence, perpetrated by one of the town’s most beloved and public figures.

Surrounding Kara is a cast of compelling and nefarious characters—a violent-tempered mayor who can do no wrong in the eyes of the town, a sheriff bound by the rules and plagued by a guilty conscience, a father bent on revenge, a serial killer in the midst of an identity crisis.
