1 ALDARONDO, Etiony, (ed.). Advancing Social Justice Through Clinical Practice
Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, Mahwah, NJ, 2007, ISBN:0471901555 
ALDARONDO, Etiony, (ed.). Advancing Social Justice Through Clinical Practice. Mahwah, New Jersey & London : John Lawrence Erlbaum Associates, (2007). Second Printing. Pp [(4),v]-xxiv,(2),3-496. Large 8vo, white cardcovers. "There is a healthy development in the human service professions these days. At community clinics, private practices, and universities around the country mental health professionals and service providers are working with increased awareness of the toxic effects of social inequities in the lives of people they aim to help. Quietly, by acting out their beliefs on justice and equality, clinicians are redressing the balance between professing our craftas clinicians and professing our humanity as citizens. Advancing Social Ju stice Through Clinical Practice is a comprehensive volume that bridges the gap between the psychosocial realities of clients and the dominant clinicalpractices. It offers an array of conceptual and practical innovations to a ddress both individual suffering and social inequities fueling this suffering. This is an empowering tool and a must read for mental health professionals. The accessible writing style also makes it ideal for teachers and students in the field. The book opens with a discussion of the historical, ethical, and experiential foundations for the development of social justice-based practice. Parts II and III present conceptual frameworks, strategies, and techniques used by social justice oriented practitioners. The final section discusses various ways to develop the skills and competencies required of mental health professionals aspiring to be both agents of individual and social transformation. Filled with hope, critical analysis, and uncommon clinical wisdom, this is a book like no other in the field." Foreword; Preface; Part I.: Steps Toward A Social Justice Therapeutic Practice. 1.

2 ALEXANDER, Bruce K. Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. First Edition in dustjacket.
Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2008, ISBN:9780199230129 
ALEXANDER, Bruce K. The Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. Oxford: Oxford University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (12),[1]-470,(6), + 2 p. of colour plates. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. The author is affiliated with the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University. "Scientific medicine has failed to bring addiction under control. There are no reliable methods to cure it, prevent it, or take the pain out of it. There is no durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, or what should be done about it. Meanwhile, it continues to increase around the world. This book argues that the cause of this failure to control addiction is that the conventional wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries focused too single-mindedly on the afflicted individual addict.Although addiction obviously manifests itself in individual cases, its pre valence differs dramatically between societies. [...] This book shows that the social circumstances that spread addiction in a conquered tribe or a failing civilisation are also built into today's globalising free-market society. [...] The book [also] argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and poltiical one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, politicians, and priests, who have served with such dedication, out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social preoject. The project is to reshape society with enough forces and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life." - from the dustjacket.

January 25, 1902, Neuilly-sur-Seine, France – d. 13 February 13, 1975, Belgrade, Yugoslavia) French general and military strategist. Originally published in 1966 by Armand Colin as Stratégie de l'Action. "General Beaufre is already well known as the author of Introduction to Strategy and Deterrence and Strategy. To complete the 'triptych' he now turns his logical and enquiring mind to the problem of 'Action' — governmental action in the field of international relationships. This is in a sense the counterpart of deterrence — preventing someone else doing something is deterrence, causing something to occur in spite of the reactions of others is 'action'. With his special brand of logic and lucidity General Beaufre shows that in present-day international relationships, with the spectre of nuclear war ever-present in the background, coercion is no longer a function of the military alone; all forms of pressure, ranging from 'diplomatic' procedures through economic and financial measures to war in all its graduated forms, must be combined into one co-ordinated action. It is General Beaufre's theme that this is most likely to be achieved if the strategic method of tnougnt is extended to a wider field. This is a book which should be read by all those interested in contemporary international relations. " - from the dj Introduction.

"Susceptibility to suggestion exists in the waking condition, but it is then either neutralized or restrained by the faculties of reason, attention and judgment. In spontaneous or in induced sleep these faculties are dull and weakened; imagination rules supreme; impressions are accepted wtihout verification, and the brain transforms them into actions, sensations, movements and images. The psychical state thus modified and the new state of consciousness induced, render the brain more docile, more easilymoulded, more susceptible on the one hand, and on the other more apt to re act upon the functions and organs by inhibition or dynamogeny. It is this susceptibility increased by suggestion which we employ in the most efficacious way for a therapeutic end." - from the preface.
