Perfectly Preventable Deaths

Perfectly Preventable Deaths

'Sullivan has an eye for the uncanny, a taste for the macabre, and a gift for beautiful prose. Perfectly Preventable Deaths is her best book yet.' Louise O'Neill 'This is the novel the recent Sabrina reboot wishes it could be - a thrilling, eerie exploration of sisterhood, first love and dark powers hiding out of sight.' Dave Rudden Sixteen-year-old twins Madeline and Catlin move to a new life in Ballyfrann, a strange isolated Irish town, a place where the earth is littered with small corpses and unspoken truths. A place where, for generations, teenage girls have gone missing in the surrounding mountains. As distance grows between the twins - as Catlin falls in love, and Madeline begins to understand her own nascent witchcraft - Madeline discovers that Ballyfrann is a place full of predators. And when Catlin falls into the gravest danger of all, Madeline must ask herself who she really is, and who she wants to be - or rather, who she might have to become to save her sister.

Nuclear Terrorism

Nuclear Terrorism

A leading strategist opens our eyes to the greatest terrorist threat of all-and how to prevent it before it's too late Americans in the twenty-first century are keenly aware of the many forms of terrorism: hijackings, biological attacks, chemical weapons. But rarely do we allow ourselves to face squarely the deadliest form of terrorism, because it is almost too scary to think about-a terrorist group exploding a nuclear device in an American city. In this urgent call to action, Graham Allison, one of America's leading experts on nuclear weapons and national security, presents the evidence for two provocative, compelling conclusions. First, if policy makers in Washington keep doing what they are currently doing about the threat, a nuclear terrorist attack on America is likely to occur in the next decade. And if one lengthens the time frame, a nuclear strike is inevitable. Second, the surprising and largely unrecognized good news is that nuclear terrorism is, in fact, preventable. In these pages, Allison offers an ambitious but feasible blueprint for eliminating the possibility of nuclear terrorist attacks. The United States once relied on the threat of mutually assured destruction to deter the Soviet Union from launching a nuclear strike. But in today's fragmented world, a new strategy is needed, especially with nuclear material vulnerable to theft or sale through black-market channels. The choice is ours: to grab this beast by the horns or to be impaled on those horns. We do not have the luxury of hoping the problem will go away, and Allison shows why.

Epidemic Illusions

Epidemic Illusions

A physician and anthropologist questions the Global North's "monopoly on truth" in global public health science. In Epidemic Illusions, Eugene Richardson makes a provocative claim: that public health science manages and maintains global health inequity. Richardson, a physician and and anthropologist, examines the conventional public health approach to epidemiology through the lens of a participant-observer, identifying a dogmatic commitment to the quantitative paradigm. This paradigm, he argues, plays a role in causing and perpetrating public health crises. The mechanisms of public health science--and epidemiology in particular--that set public health agendas and claim a monopoly on truth stem from a colonial, racist, and patriarchal system that had its inception in 1492.

Preventable Disasters

Preventable Disasters

Preventable Disasters explores the age old question of why government leaders and organizations of high calibre fail. This book questions why well-informed governments, staffed by competent and often brilliant personnel, allow problems to germinate, worsen and then seemingly go out of control, when at various points along the way, the problem could have been checked or at least more effectively confronted. Preventable Disasters draws on a wide variety of examples and past case studies. It examines the concerns generated by these disasters and what these concerns have in common. The author examines the patterns that can be discerned in various "egregious" failures that might be used as guidelines for building "risk reduction" models and devices, for all government disasters including the fear of nuclear war. This book will be of interest to political and social scientists, historians, policy makers and educated laymen.

Preventable Death

Preventable Death

PREVENTABLE DEATH By Phil Mac Giolla Bhain This timely book explores the appalling death toll of young Irishmen over a twenty-year period. Campaigning journalist Phil Mac Giolla Bhain travelled the length and breadth of the island of Ireland hearing the stories of heart broken families who have been devastated by suicide. Phil also spoke to experts in the field who, despite years of research, cannot answer why the suicide rate among our young men is so high. Finally, Phil develops an analysis why this is a killer of men and not women in modern Ireland and what can be done to neutralise this "tolerated serial killer."
