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?

This book is open access under a CC BY 4.0 license.This book provides a profound insight into post-war Mostar, and the memories of three generations of this Bosnian-Herzegovinian city.

It argues that the dramatic and often brutal transformations that Bosnia...

Your best friend is a traitor.
That is what I thought when I researched this work. I try to reach new depths, to get to the wider part of the story to give you the thrills you as the reader expect from a story.
So here I am writing another book.
I’ll be truthful this one is going to shock you. It will make you think uncomfortably about your friends – and see them in a new light. After reading this I doubt if you will ever trust anyone again. Every time you go out, every time you meet people all you will see is dishonesty.
That’s right, dishonesty.
When someone works in the world of secret espionage they expect it first-hand. The lies and the duplicity committed by a man with no conscience to the consequences ...

'Rolf Wolfgang Reitlinger'. A personal story -:
'In The Name Of The Führer'
From elementary school to the Hitler Youth.
From the bloody streets of 'Munchen' to
the manic killing fields of Normandy.
From the corpse littered swamplands
of Slovakia to a British POW camp.
All - 'in the name of the Fuhrer.'
Atlas D'four tells this man's story from a
very personal angle. The Nazi 'Aryan'
race was one of purity and service.
Only someone forgot we are all human!
