The architects of the Soviet Union intended not merely to remake their society—they also had an ambitious plan to remake the citizenry physically, with the goal of perfecting the socialist ideal of man. As Euphoria and Exhaustion shows, the Soviet leadership used sport as one of the primary arenas in which to deploy and test their efforts to mechanize and perfect the human body, drawing on knowledge from physiology, biology, medicine, and hygiene. At the same time, however, such efforts, like any form of social control, could easily lead to discontent—and thus, the editors show, a study of changes in public attitude towards sport can offer insight into overall levels of integration, dissatisfaction, and social exhaustion in the Soviet Union.

This interdisciplinary book explores the connections and tensions between sociological, psychological, and biological theories of exhaustion. It examines how the prevalence of exhaustion – both as an individual experience and as a broader socio-cultural phenomenon – is manifest in the epidemic rise of burnout, depression, and chronic fatigue. It provides innovative analyses of the complex interplay between the processes involved in the production of mental health diagnoses, socio-cultural transformations, and subjective illness experiences. Using many of the existing ideologically charged exhaustion theories as case studies, the authors investigate how individual discomfort and wider social dynamics are interrelated. Covering a vast breadth of topics, this book will appeal to scholars of psychology, sociology, medicine, psychiatry, literature, and history.

The impact of Communism on the twentieth century was massive, equal to that of the two world wars. Until the fall of the Soviet Union in 1991, historians knew relatively little about the secretive world of communist states and parties. Since then, the opening of state, party, and diplomatic archives of the former Eastern Bloc has released a flood of new documentation. The thirty-five essays in this Handbook, written by an international team of scholars, draw on this new material to offer a global history of communism in the twentieth century. In contrast to many histories that concentrate on the Soviet Union, The Oxford Handbook of the History of Communism is genuinely global in its coverage, paying particular attention to the Chinese Revolution. It is 'global', too, in the sense that the essays seek to integrate history 'from above' and 'from below', to trace the complex mediations between state and society, and to explore the social and cultural as well as the political and economic realities that shaped the lives of citizens fated to live under communist rule. The essays reflect on the similarities and differences between communist states in order to situate them in their socio-political and cultural contexts and to capture their changing nature over time. Where appropriate, they also reflect on how the fortunes of international communism were shaped by the wider economic, political, and cultural forces of the capitalist world. The Handbook provides an informative introduction for those new to the field and a comprehensive overview of the current state of scholarship for those seeking to deepen their understanding.

A USA Today Top 10 Best Book of Winter 2014 "Equals Truman Capote’s In Cold Blood as a nonfiction novel of crime.”—Gerald Bartell, San Francisco Chronicle In the summer of 1998, Walter Kirn—then an aspiring novelist struggling with impending fatherhood and a dissolving marriage—set out on a peculiar, fateful errand: to personally deliver a crippled hunting dog from his home in Montana to the New York apartment of one Clark Rockefeller, a secretive young banker and art collector who had adopted the dog over the Internet. Thus began a fifteen-year relationship that drew Kirn deep into the fun-house world of an outlandish, eccentric son of privilege who ultimately would be unmasked as a brazen serial impostor, child kidnapper, and brutal murderer. Kirn's one-of-a-kind story of being duped by a real-life Mr. Ripley takes us on a bizarre and haunting journey from the posh private clubrooms of Manhattan to the hard-boiled courtrooms and prisons of Los Angeles. As Kirn uncovers the truth about his friend, a psychopath masquerading as a gentleman, he also confronts hard truths about himself. Why, as a writer of fiction, was he susceptible to the deception of a sinister fantasist whose crimes, Kirn learns, were based on books and movies? What are the hidden psychological links between the artist and the con man? To answer these and other questions, Kirn attends his old friend’s murder trial and uses it as an occasion to reflect on both their tangled personal relationship and the surprising literary sources of Rockefeller's evil. This investigation of the past climaxes in a tense jailhouse reunion with a man whom Kirn realizes he barely knew—a predatory, sophisticated genius whose life, in some respects, parallels his own and who may have intended to take another victim during his years as a fugitive from justice: Kirn himself. Combining confessional memoir, true crime reporting, and cultural speculation, Blood Will Out is a Dreiser-esque tale of self-invention, upward mobility, and intellectual arrogance. It exposes the layers of longing and corruption, ambition and self-delusion beneath the Great American con.

Insane Euphoria Speaks: Diary of a Late Pregnancy is one woman's account of her third pregnancy from May 1971 through March 1972. When she first suspects that she is pregnant, she wonders what her husband's reaction might be. Should she or should she not have a third child? In her deepest self, she feels that she would like the profound natural happiness of being pregnant once again. At the same time, she wonders if she and her husband have both the emotional and financial resources to provide for a third child. The narrator tries to balance the anticipated euphoria of the experience against the very substantial demands of a third child. This will be the last pregnancy because she will be thirty-nine years old in two months. The positive side is that she is emotionally and psychologically ready for the experience and expects that she can make it into something more wonderful than her first two pregnancies had been. She served her motherhood apprenticeship with her first two children, and the third time around, she can appreciate her hard-won expertise. She realizes that she will be able to enjoy a mastery of the motherhood experience akin to the professional mastery she enjoyed before motherhood. An added plus to the third pregnancy is that she will be able to keep a journal, something she wanted to do with her first two pregnancies but was never sufficiently in control to do so. Her decision to continue the pregnancy is supported by her husband's enormous happiness at the prospect of a third child. The narrator records both the resources and the limitations of her current situation. She wants the pregnancy to be a beautiful experience and contain all that her previous two pregnancies lacked. She feels she knows what to expect from the experience, and this makes a significant difference. She likes the house where she lives and is grateful for the view of the hill and field across the street from her living room window. This is her relaxing view, her contact with nature and the eternal. The limitations of her situation are the lack of any household or babysitting help and the resulting acute need for some private time to herself. Having been an independent professional woman before she had children, she finds being a full-time at-home mother and an economic dependent a limiting and, sometimes, demeaning experience. There are fluctuations in her relationship with her husband and negotiations about power and money in their everyday life. The relationship is tugged one way by his wanting her to go back to work and the other way by her wanting him to expand his professional practice. The narrator tries to keep anything from marring the enjoyment of her third and final pregnancy. She wants to experience all the pleasure possible. She finds this a time of psychic integration where the discordant elements of her personality are integrated and present more and deeper meaning than she had previously known. The baby moves for the first time, she witnesses her two-year-old learn to talk, and her three-year-old start nursery school. His family, her family, and their friends form a chorus in the background. She experiences increasing dreaminess while she enjoys keeping a journal and, at one point, rereading some of her earlier journals. In the end, it culminates in the birth of a beautiful healthy baby girl.

Should scientific congresses take place in connection with Olympic Games, and should science be represented not only in the form of applied science engaged in the care of athletes, but also as an informing, reflecting and critical authority? The Organizing Committee for the Games of the XXth Olympiad answered this question in the affirmative, and the results have justified this decision. The invitation sent out by the Organizing Committee was accepted by numerous eminent scholars and many participants from all over the world; it was their merit that the general topic of the congress could be discussed in manifold ways under various aspects and without prejudice. For this reason, they deserve our gratitude and appreciation. By now, the congress report has been completed. It is part of the total scientific concept which includes the preparatory publication, "The Scientific View of Sport Perspectives, Aspects, Issues", the congress itself and the present report; and, in close connection therewith, the exhibitions, "100 Years of German Excavation Work in Olympia", "Sport and Medicine" and the literary exhibition. It is to be hoped that this report will prove an important source of information and a stimulus for discussion among participants and scholars, students, teachers and coaches; and that it will safeguard the fruitful continuation of the work initiated by the Munich congress. Thanks are due to those who took pains in preparing this document. It will be an essential element within the framework of all that will remain of the Olympic Games of 1972.
