"A shattering first novel... You can't look away from it."--New York Times Book Review. Maureen O'Donnell wakes up one morning to find her therapist boyfriend murdered in the middle of her living room and herself a prime suspect in a murder case. Desperate to clear her name and to get at the truth, Maureen traces rumors about a similar murder at a local psychiatric hospital, uncovering a trail of deception and repressed scandal that could exonerate her - or make her the next victim. "I can't think of a more interesting - and less likely - crime hero than Maureen O'Donnell, the damaged but determined center of Denise Mina's marvelous debut mystery. ... The book bristles with angry energy and the spare urban poetry of its unique language." - Chicago Tribune. "A groundbreaking book...its emotional rawness and visceral honesty pack a punch more potent than any boxer-turned-PI could provide."--Washington Post Book World. "This raw, powerful story is an exceptional debut." -Kansas City Star. "A compelling story. ... This is the reason we read mysteries." -Rocky Mountain News.
This anthology of Garo literature contains songs, folktales, ritual chants, traditional oral poetry, songs about country life, samples of written poetry and a play. The contents have been carefully chosen to give an idea about the oral traditions of the Garos as well as their written literature which emerged a little over a hundred years ago. I must hasten to add that not all the material selected, especially from the traditional oral literature, is necessarily the best and the most representative; because my selection was based on considerations of quality as well as translatability. Many traditional poems and songs are untranslatable due to the lack of equivalent words in English. Besides, some key words have gone out of use, and their meanings are uncertain.

The Gaslight Effect: How to Spot and Survive the Hidden Manipulation Others Use to Control Your Lifeby Robin Stern
Are You Being Gaslighted? Your husband crosses the line in his flirtations with another woman at a dinner party. When you confront him, he asks you to stop being insecure and controlling. After a long argument, you apologize for giving him a hard time. Your boss backed you on a project when you met privately in his office, and you went full steam ahead. But at a large gathering of staff--including yours--he suddenly changes his tune and publicly criticizes your poor judgment. When you tell him your concerns for how this will affect your authority, he tells you that the project was ill-conceived and you'll have to be more careful in the future. You begin to question your competence. Your mother belittles your clothes, your job, your friends, and your boyfriend. But instead of fighting back as your friends encourage you to do, you tell them that your mother is often right and that a mature person should be able to take a little criticism. If you think things like this can't happen to you, think again. Gaslighting is when someone wants you to do what you know you shouldn't and to believe the unbelievable. It can happen to you and it probably already has. How do we know? If you consider answering "yes" to even one of the following questions, you've probably been gaslighted:Does your opinion of yourself change according to approval or disapproval from your spouse? When your boss praises you, do you feel as if you could conquer the world? Do you dread having small things go wrong at home--buying the wrong brand of toothpaste, not having dinner ready on time, a mistaken appointment written on the calendar? Gaslighting is an insidious form of emotional abuse and manipulation that is difficult to recognize and even harder to break free from. That's because it plays into one of our worst fears--of being abandoned--and many of our deepest needs: to be understood, appreciated, and loved. In this groundbreaking guide, the prominent therapist Dr. Robin Stern shows how the Gaslight Effect works and tells you how to: Turn up your Gaslight Radar, so you know when a relationship is headed for trouble; Determine whether you are enabling a gaslighter; Recognize the Three Stages of Gaslighting: Disbelief, Defense, and Depression; Refuse to be gaslighted by using the Five Rules for Turning Off the Gas; Develop your own "Gaslight Barometer" so you can decide which relationships can be saved--and which you have to walk away from; Learn how to Gasproof Your Life so that you'll never again choose another gaslighting relationship because it plays into one of our worst fears--of being abandoned--and many of our deepest needs: to be understood, appreciated, and loved.
Gastric adenocarcinoma is the second most common cancer worldwide. It is usually diagnosed at a late stage and prognosis is poor; even with modern diagnostic and treatment methods the 5-year survival is only 10%. Improvements in overall patient survival can only be achieved by earlier diagnosis and by tailored therapeutic strategies based on tumor type, location and stage at presentation. This volume provides a state-of-the-art, integrated diagnostic and therapeutic approach to patient management. The role of the upper GI series, endoscopy, endoscopic ultrasound, MDCT, MRI, and PET/CT in the diagnosis, staging and follow-up of patients with gastric cancer is emphasized. The relative strengths and limitations of these diagnostic examinations will be presented in context with the most recent epidemiologic, pathologic, and therapeutic concepts regarding this tumor. With expert contributions from members of an international multidisciplinary team, this is an invaluable guide to the diagnosis and management of gastric malignancies.
