The Geography of Madness: Penis Thieves, Voodoo Death, and the Search for the Meaning of the World’s Strangest Syndromes by way of Frank Bures
Requirements: .ePUB reader, 3.2 MB
Overview: Why do a little males turn out to be convinced-despite what medical doctors inform them-that their penises have, merely, disappeared. Why do other folks the world over turn out to be satisfied that they’re cursed to die on a specific date-and then do? Why do other folks in Malaysia “run amok”?
In The Geography of Madness, acclaimed mag creator Frank Bures investigates those and different “culture-bound” syndromes, tracing every apparently baffling phenomenon to its supply. It’s an enchanting, and from time to time rollicking, journey that takes the reader world wide and deep into the eccentricities of the human psyche. What Bures uncovers alongside the way in which is a poignant and stirring tale of the patience of trust, worry, and hope.
