A family story of a murder, blood and betrayal that tore an Irish town apart and causes men to be silent still. After nearly three decades reporting conflict from all over the world for the BBC, Fergal Keane has gone home to Ireland to tell a story that lies at the root of his fascination with war. It is a family story of war and love, and how the ghosts of the past return to shape the present. Wounds is a powerful memoir about Irish people who found themselves caught up in the revolution that followed the 1916 Rising, and in the pitiless violence of civil war in north Kerry after the British left in 1922. It is the story of Keane's grandmother Hanna Purtill, her brother Mick and his friend Con Brosnan, and how they and their neighbours took up guns to fight the British Empire and create an independent Ireland. And it is the story of another Irishman, Tobias O'Sullivan, who fought against them as a policeman because he believed it was his duty to uphold the law of his country. Many thousands of people took part in the War of Independence and the Civil War that followed. Whatever side they chose, all were changed in some way by the costs of violence. Keane uses the experiences of his ancestral homeland in north Kerry to examine why people will kill for a cause and how the act of killing reverberates through the generations.

Inspired by a news article about a missionary who spent his life serving on medical missions in Thailand, author Dr. King F. Yee changed his major from science to medicine. This memoir follows Yee’s long and vigorous educational process of medical school, internship, and residency. It shares how, following training, Yee realized obtaining credentials and hanging a shingle do not make a medical practice an instant success. In For Love of Compassion, he depicts the realities of private practice and the struggles he faced. He also shares the details of realizing his long-held dream of working on medical missions to the Philippines, with each place differing in need and challenges. Yee’s story exemplifies the lives of all who’ve pursued the art of medicine. Compassion is the heart of medicine—compassion to care, compassion to heal, and compassion to freely give one’s time and energy.

Trauma has become a hotly contested topic in literary studies. But interest in trauma is not new; its roots extend to the Romantic period, when novelists and the first psychiatrists influenced each others' investigations of the »wounded mind«. This book looks back to these early attempts to understand trauma, reading a selection of Romantic novels in dialogue with Romantic and contemporary psychiatry. It then carries that dialogue forward to postmodern fiction, examining further how empirical approaches can deepen our theorizations of trauma. Within an interdisciplinary framework, this study reveals fresh insights into the poetics, politics, and ethics of trauma fiction.
