Graphic Works Nonfiction
Paperback ISBN: 1906838992
Hysteria is a graphic novel account of the first steps, errors, and frustrations of Sigmund Freud’s career, which would lead to the foundation of a revolutionary new clinical therapy: psychoanalysis. The book traces Freud’s early training in neurological research and medicine; the crucial turning-point of his studies with Jean-Martin Charcot at La Salpêtrière; and his establishment of a therapeutic practice in Vienna. Perfectly matching text and illustrations, Hysteria recounts Freud’s interest in his colleague Josef Breuer’s "Anna O" case study, as well as giving an account of his own case histories of hysteria, particularly the treatment of Fräulein Elisabeth von R. The studies brought to life in this authoritative, beautifully illustrated graphic novel are collected in Freud and Breuer’s co-authoredStudies in Hysteria, which marked the birth of psychoanalysis.

The Cartoon Introduction to Economics 2
Paperback ISBN: 0809033615
Once more bringing together Yoram Bauman, economist and standup comedian, and the award-winning illustrator Grady Klein, The Cartoon Introduction to Economics: Volume Two: Macroeconomics again delivers on the promise to provide you with the most digestible, readable, and humorous 200-page introduction to economics you’ll ever read. Whereas Volume One: Microeconomics dealt with the optimizing individual, Volume Two: Macroeconomics explains the factors that affect the economy of an entire country and, indeed, the planet. It explores the two big concerns of macroeconomics: how economies grow and why economies collapse. It also illustrates the basics of the labor market and unemployment, inflation and debt, what the GDP is and what it measures, and the influence of government, trade, and technology on the economy. Along the way it covers the economics of global poverty, climate change, and the business cycle. In short, if any of these topics have cropped up in a news story and caused you to wish you grasped the underlying basics, this book is for you. And while walking you through an entire introductory macroeconomics course, its cartoon characters—with cameos from Nobel Prize–winning economists such as Milton Friedman and Paul Krugman—take the sting out of the subject.
