The essays in Self-Inflicted Wounds are refreshingly and sometimes brutally honest, surprising, and laugh-out-loud funny, vividly translating the brand of humor Tyler has cultivated through her successful standup career, as well as the strong voice and unique point of view she expresses on her taste-making comedy podcast Girl on Guy.

In the year 2000, two countries have different experiences with their elections, and U.N. spy Mai Fisher is out to affect the outcome of one of them.But first she has to find out who has been killing major and minor government officials in Yugoslavia and stop them. As if that weren't enough, she has to convince a reluctant candidate to run against the Serbian strongman, Slobodan Milosevic.After coming out of semi-retirement with reluctance, Alexei Bukharin joins his partner in what he hopes is their final mission. There are moments, though, where he remembers the most exciting aspects of the spy game: untangling plots, the occasional need to kick ass, the manipulation of an innocent, and the adrenaline rush.However, there are those who will do anything to maintain the status quo, to stay in power.Even kill.

The game has rules?Mai Fisher doesn't like missions with no clear resolution. But this is the Balkans, and sometimes you have to accept small defeats among the overall victory. Despite Alexei Bukharin's insistence on this being their final mission, Mai won't let herself think about that. She's got an election to influence, assassinations to stop, justice to achieve, and errant relatives to save. But that all strains both her professional and personal relationship with Alexei. Nothing new there, but it's getting old. For both. After having to fight, unexpectedly and literally, for her life, her mission does conclude, though the loose ends flap about willy-nilly. That, Mai finds unacceptable, especially when the aftermath uncovers a betrayal that could have gotten her killed for the basest of reasons--jealousy. Being, as Alexei calls her, "the most stubborn woman on earth," she manages to find closure for this mission, though it takes time. Alexei has his closure as well, along with the acceptance he is who he is, occasionally ruthless and always unforgiving. Was this their final mission? Only time will tell.

It's a behaviour with many names - self-injury, self-harm, self-mutilation, self-inflicted violence, self-cutting and self-abuse to name some. It's a puzzling and perplexing phenomenon, which shocks and frightens those who encounter it. Furthermore, it's widely reported to be reaching 'epidemic proportions, ' particularly among young people, and research has shown that it frequently goes hand-in-hand with eating disorders, alcohol and drug abuse, depression, post-traumatic stress disorder, and dissociative disorders. Those caught in its clutches find it difficult to stop because of its addictive nature, or are reluctant to try because they say it helps them 'feel better, ' 'more in control, ' 'more alive or real, ' or that it inhibits suicidal thoughts. In this revised, expanded, and deeply compelling second edition, Jan Sutton draws on the testimonies of those trapped in the cycle of self-injury, and former self-injurers, as well as the latest research and developments in the field. It is a book of hope and healing designed to offer help and support to self-injurers; understanding to the self-injurer's kith and kin; and insight to volunteers or professionals whose work brings them

Leadership failures in the defense of Crete were essential factors contributing to Allied defeat on the island in May 1941. The Germans appeared unstoppable during the early stages of World War II. Inexperienced Allied forces were willing to fight, but the sentiment was the Germans were too powerful. Defeat became a foregone conclusion. To defend at all costs no longer appeared viable. Withdrawal and evacuation seemed almost commonplace in Allied strategy. Great Britain and Germany identified early in the war the strategic importance of the island of Crete for conducting military operations in the Mediterranean. Operationally the British maintained naval supremacy in the Mediterranean, while the German Luftwaffe ruled the skies. The Allies began defending Crete in November 1940. However, the Middle East Command put little effort into defending the island and changed Crete Force Commanders on a monthly basis. Allied intelligence uncovered the details of the German invasion plan for Crete. In a last ditch effort, forces evacuated from Greece were sent to Crete to bolster the defenses. This brought the total number of Allied defenders to 42,500 to repel an estimated enemy assault of 5,000 men. The German plan for the occupation of Crete, Operation MERCURY, called for gliders and Hitler's elite paratroops to conduct the largest airborne operation to date. The plan pitted 22,000 men and 1280 aircraft against an erroneously estimated enemy strength of 5,000 men. The success of this plan relied upon surprise and the paratroops securing one of the three airfields on the island so reinforcements could be flown in. A reluctant Crete Force Commander set the tone for subordinate commanders' leadership failures. The invasion began the morning of 20 May 1941. The Germans suffered heavy casualties. At the end of the first day of fighting, they were short ammunition, and the Allies maintained control of the airfields. However, the battalion commander defending the airfield at Maleme, lacking communications and situational awareness, was unaware of the success of his unit and that night mistakenly ordered its withdrawal from the airfield. The Germans occupied the airfield in the morning and reinforcements were flown in. The Allies conducted an attack the night of 21 May to retake the airfield, but poor Allied leadership at the Brigade and Division level resulted in failure. Consequently, the Germans were able to mass combat power on the island and defeat the Allies. The defenders outnumbered the attackers nearly 2 to 1, knew the invasion plan, and established their defense accordingly. By all accounts, the Allies should have defeated the Germans and in fact came quite close to doing so. However, failures in Allied leadership afforded the Germans opportunities that were quickly exploited. Subsequently, they were able to defeat the Allies within 12 days. Failure in Allied leadership, not overwhelming German combat power, was responsible for the Allied defeat on Crete.

Self harm is generally regarded as a modern epidemic, associated especially with young women. But references to self harm are found in the poetry of ancient Rome, the drama of ancient Greece and early Christian texts, including the Bible. Generations of lawmakers, military authorities, doctors and psychologists have analyzed self harm over the last 200 years, but these histories have to a great extent disappeared.

The Aesthetics of Self Harm

The Aesthetics of Self-Harm presents a new approach to understanding parasuicidal behaviour, based upon an examination of online communities that promote performances of self-harm in the pursuit of an idealised beauty. The book considers how online communities provide a significant level of support for self-harmers and focuses on relevant case studies to establish a new model for the comprehension of the online supportive community. To do so, Alderton explores discussions of self-harm and disordered eating on social networks. She examines aesthetic trends that contextualise harmful behavior and help people to perform feelings of sadness and vulnerability online. Alderton argues that the traditional understanding of self-violence through medical discourse is important, but that it misses vital elements of human group activity and the motivating forces of visual imagery. Covering psychiatry and psychology, rhetoric and sociology, this book provides essential reading for psychologists, sociologists and anthropologists exploring group dynamics and ritual, and rhetoricians who are concerned with the communicative powers of images. It should also be of great interest to medical professionals dealing with self-harming patients.

The number of eating disorders patients presenting with symptoms of self-harm is growing quickly, and yet there is surprisingly little known about this unique population. Self-Harm Behavior and Eating Disorders explores the prevalent but largely uncharted relationship between self-injury behaviors and eating disorders symptoms. In the first major book to focus on this area, a renowned group of international scholars and practitioners addresses the subject from a variety of theoretical and practical perspectives. The book is categorized into sections covering epidemiology, psychodynamics, assessment, and a final section covering potential treatment options, including dialectical behavioral therapy, cognitive therapy, interventions strategies, group therapy, and pharmacological approaches. This unrivaled collection of case studies, theoretical exploration, and practical application forms a benchmark for the field, and offers a stepping-stone for new research and innovative treatment strategies. In an area with little available information, previously spread out among diffuse sources, this volume represents the state-of-the-field resource for anyone working with complex eating disorders patients.
