English | August 29th, 2017 | ASIN: B074CW4WQL, ISBN: 0520287959 | 265 pages | EPUB/PDF | 4.09 MB

In this unprecedented view from the trenches, prosecutor turned champion for the innocent Mark Godsey takes us inside the frailties of the human mind as they unfold in real-world wrongful convictions. Drawing upon stories from his own career, Godsey shares how innate psychological flaws in judges, police, lawyers, and juries coupled with a “tough on crime” environment can cause investigations to go awry, leading to the convictions of innocent people.

Plato's Revenge: Politics in the Age of Ecology

Plato's Revenge: Politics in the Age of Ecology by William Ophuls
English | August 19th, 2011 | ASIN: B005KS981Y, ISBN: 0262525283, 0262015900 | 271 pages | EPUB | 1.05 MB

In this provocative call for a new ecological politics, William Ophuls starts from a radical premise: "sustainability" is impossible. We are on an industrial Titanic, fueled by rapidly depleting stocks of fossil hydrocarbons. Making the deck chairs from recyclable materials and feeding the boilers with biofuels is futile. In the end, the ship is doomed by the laws of thermodynamics and by the implacable biological and geological limits that are already beginning to pinch.

The Psychology of Abandon: The Berserk Style in American Culture

The Psychology of Abandon: The Berserk Style in American Culture by Kirby Farrell
English | January 24th, 2016 | ASIN: B01B25FMNQ, ISBN: 1937146723 | 192 pages | AZW3 | 1.22 MB

When behavior becomes a cultural style, berserk abandon is terrifying yet also alluring. It promises access to extraordinary resources by overthrowing inhibitions. Berserk style has shaped many areas of contemporary American culture, from warfare to politics and intimate life. Focusing on post-Vietnam America and using perspectives from psychology, anthropology, and physiology, Farrell demonstrates the need to unpack the confusions in language and cultural fantasy that drive the nation’s fascination with berserk style.
