    An “artistically written” book from an acclaimed psychologist with “a profound understanding of the relationship that exists between art and madness” (William Styron, Pulitzer Prize–winning author of Sophie’s Choice). 
     
    The definitive work on the surprising links between manic-depression and creativity, from one of the foremost authorities on bipolar disorder and the bestselling author of An Unquiet Mind.  
     
    The anguished and volatile intensity associated with the artistic temperament was once thought to be a symptom of genius or eccentricity peculiar to artists, writers, and musicians. Kay Redfield Jamison’s book, based on her study as a clinical psychologist and researcher in mood disorders, reveals that many artists subject to exalted highs and despairing lows were in fact engaged in a struggle with clinically identifiable manic-depressive illness. 
     
    Jamison presents proof of the biological foundations of this disease and applies what is known about the illness to the lives and works of some of the world’s greatest artists including Lord Byron, Vincent Van Gogh, and Virginia Woolf. 
     
    “In language comprehensible to the lay reader, [Jamison]presents a thorough overview of current knowledge concerning the etiology, diagnosis, and treatment of this disorder.” —Library Journal

    In 1904 the Isle of Man became the cradle of car racing in the British Isles when its self-governing status enabled the Island's public roads to be closed for motor racing. Starting in 1905, the Island's early Tourist Trophy car races led directly to the motorcycle TT Races which have continued virtually without interruption to this day. The Island's first phase of car racing extended from 1904 to 1922, on various TT courses varying in length from 52 to 37 miles. Racing resumed from 1933 to 1937 on street circuits through Douglas and Onchan and a third series of races took place between 1947 and 1953 on the Willaston Circuit on the outskirts of Douglas. This book tells in detail the story of the Island races, the drivers, the cars, the fights against political opposition and the contribution made by the Island's races to the development of production cars over fifty years.

    This “fascinating historical account” of a Christian mission in Niger offers a personal and richly detailed look at religious institutions in the region (Religious Studies Review). 
     
    Barbara M. Cooper looks closely at the Sudan Interior Mission, an evangelical Christian mission that has taken a tenuous hold in a predominantly Hausa Muslim area on the southern fringe of Niger. Based on sustained fieldwork, personal interviews, and archival research, this vibrant, sensitive, compelling, and candid book gives a unique glimpse into an important dimension of religious life in Africa. 
     
    Cooper’s involvement in a violent religious riot provides a useful backdrop for introducing other themes and concerns such as Bible translation, medical outreach, public preaching, tensions between English-speaking and French-speaking missionaries, and the Christian mission’s changing views of Islam.
