Good Shrink/Bad Shrink is a medical mystery/thriller that explores the dark but enthralling world of mind control and abusive psychiatric research. Psychiatric resident Eve Gilchrist encounters a puzzling patient whose flashbacks suggest that the life he thought he remembered was an artefact of brainwashing. Consultant Ben Jordan, experienced with both psychoanalysis and hypnosis, discovers that the man is still being trained and monitored by the Project, a shadowy group that applies officially-condemned mind control technologies for profit in the private sector. Project operatives, including some of Jordan’s faculty colleagues, mobilize to reclaim their trainee, undermine Jordan’s credibility, and neutralize both Jordan and Gilchrist to preserve the secrecy of their efforts. Jordan and Gilchrist - a quick learner - utilize clinical knowledge and research findings to escape efforts to torture and liquidate them, and to distinguish fact from fiction in their patient’s accounts. The patient returns to his actual home in a fugue state. Jordan and his unlikely allies must battle the Project’s operatives while Jordan risks his life to locate the patient and undo the Project’s grip upon his mind.

Governor Jim Melville looks like a sure thing for his party’s presidential nomination. Psychiatrist Ben Jordan, his college friend, never suspects Melville’s ties to a sinister group operating behind the façade of the Glenville-Rodgers Foundation, a Beltway think tank. President Harry S. Truman observed that you can accomplish almost anything if you don’t insist on getting the credit. Glenville-Rodgers applies Truman’s axiom with a darker twist, manoeuvring to seize control of the White House while keeping its activities unnoticed. To hijack crucial academic departments for purposes of its own, it offers Ben’s university a record-breaking endowment... with conditions. Ten years before, Ben stumbled upon one of their operations and threw a monkey wrench into their plans. Inconvenient to Glenville-Rodgers and expendable to a university intoxicated with the prospect of virtually unlimited funding, Ben’s academic career comes to a painful end. When Jim Melville’s daughter’s accuses him of incest, Glenville-Rodgers moves to salvage his political future. Calculating that a depressed Ben Jordan can be manipulated to serve their purpose, its operatives score a brilliant success. Jordan saves Melville’s reputation. Later, he finds evidence suggesting he was fooled by a skilfully coached lookalike. When Melville’s camp takes note of Ben’s misgivings, he and his family come under attack. The message is clear: Support Melville or else! Ben’s friends help him protect his family as he struggles to solve the mysteries confronting him... Whom did he actually interview? If he interviewed a fraud, what has become of Melville’s real daughter? And how can he block a traitor, once one of his best friends, from becoming the most powerful man in the world?

Within the last few decades a dizzying array of scientific disciplines and "explanations" of the motivating forces behind the profound enigmas of human behavior have emerged: sociobiology, cognitive psychology, game theory, experimental psychology, neurobiology, evolutionary psychology, "existential" neurology, social psychology, genetics, and other attempts at interdisciplinary thinking. Each, according to its own reductive approach, strives to separate, isolate, examine in laboratories and through experiments extracted from real-life experience, and thereby "understand" the most complex aspects of being human--including our subjectivity; morality and altruism; our economic survival and our irrational biases that affect it; our innate need for religion and wonder; and the cross-cultural stalwart, humor. But as Alper argues in his exciting and challenging new work, this sort of contemporary balkanization of the human mind actually achieves the opposite of its purpose. Rather than unraveling and illuminating the Ur source of a particular behavior or mindset, it merely shrinks the richly threaded tapestry to a single frayed thread dissevered and abstractly disconnected from the everyday experiential realities of human existence. Examining the assertions and fallacies of the theories conceived (or contrived) by some of today's most brilliant scientists and thinkers (including Dan Ariely, John Barrow, Pascal Boyer, Frank Close, Nicholas Humphrey, Richard Dawkins, Stanley Milgram, Oliver Sacks, and Carl Sagan), Alper explores why these varied attempts at joining the world of experience and the world of measurement so regularly fail, how consciousness explained is really a concentrated effort to explain away the subjective phenomena of consciousness. From the psychic rat to the gorilla in the room, from British double-agent Kim Philby to comedian Steve Martin, The Incredible Shrinking Mind not only offers a provocative and entertaining critique, but also a profound and practical solution: the psychodynamic approach, which takes seriously the question of meaning and not solely observable behavior, which combines the quantitative and the experimental with the human and multidimensional, which seeks to understand not just how but why. No single equation, no theory, no dazzling fMRI image of the hidden brain can ever accomplish this for us. It must be patiently done, one person at a time.

Oil is the black gold that controls the fortunes of all nations and the once-mighty United States is down to the dregs. A giant oil field is discovered off the Tanzanian coast and the newly elected US President finds his solution to America's ailing economy. While the US blindly plots and plans regime change in this hitherto insignificant African nation, Tanzania's allies - the Chinese - start their own secret machinations. The explosion that follows shatters a decades-old balance of global power and triggers a crisis on American soil that the United States may not survive.Political conspiracies, military manouvers, and covert activities are woven together in this fast-paced, gripping novel that paints a stark warning of an uncomfortably likely future.

From the author of In the Freud Archives and The Journalist and the Murderer comes an intensive look at the practice of psychoanalysis through interviews with “Aaron Green,” a Freudian analyst in New York City. Malcolm is accessible and lucid in describing the history of psychoanalysis and its development in the United States. It provides rare insight into the contradictory world of psychoanalytic training and treatment and a foundation for our understanding of psychiatry and mental health. "Janet Malcom has managed somehow to peer into the reticent, reclusive world of psychoanalysis and to report to us, with remarkable fidelity, what she has seen. When I began reading I thought condescendingly, 'She will get the facts right, and everything else wrong.' She does get the facts right, but far more pressive, she has been able to capture and convey the claustral atmosphere of the profession. Her book is journalism become art." —Joseph Andelson, The New York Times Book Review

How can we help our patients process their traumatic memories without their becoming retraumatized and overwhelmed severely all over again? Shelter from the Storm explores how therapists can confront this complex challenge. No one can completely eliminate the pain of those who have suffered mistreatment, but Shelter from the Storm proposes ways to reduce and contain the anguish inherent in trauma work. Helping those who suffer Dissociative Identity Disorder, Dissociative Disorder Not Otherwise Specified, or Posttraumatic Stress Disorder can prove a challenging task. Painful, terrifying, and mortifying memories rarely yield their grips on our patients' minds and present-day lives without the help of strenuous therapeutic interventions. It may prove difficult or impossible to free the presents and the futures of those who have suffered unwanted misfortunes in their pasts without helping them abreact some or much of their overwhelming experiences. But therapeutic approaches to traumas once powerful enough to cause mental disorders may themselves prove threatening and destabilizing to those who are already vulnerable and distressed. Preventing trauma treatment from retraumatizing trauma survivors and working to minimize the discomfort they suffer during their psychotherapies are the driving forces behind Shelter from the Storm. Dr. Richard Kluft has over 40 years of experience treating traumatized and dissociative patients. He has brought over 200 Dissociative Identity Disorder patients to integration. His therapeutic innovations have received numerous awards and honors here and abroad. Here he brings together elements from psychoanalysis, psychodynamic psychotherapy, hypnosis, behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, and EMDR in support of his work with the traumatized. He presents his approaches through the lens of The Fractionated Abreaction Technique. His exploration of this approach is conversational and unconventional. Shelter from the Storm is not a traditional textbook. Kluft allows the Fractionated Abreaction Technique to speak for itself through the voice of its personification, The FAT Man. Kluft and The FAT Man engage the reader directly. Throughout their humorous and often irreverent dialogs they offer a compassionate and empathic perspective on how to go about working effectively with the most grim, tragic, terrifying, and soul-shattering aspects of man's inhumanity to man.
