My Sense of Silence by Lennard J. Davis
Book DescriptionLennard J. Davis grew up as the hearing child of deaf parents. In this candid, affecting, and often funny memoir, he recalls the joys and confusions of this special world, especially his complex and sometimes difficult relationships with his working-class Jewish immigrant parents. Gracefully slipping through memory, regret, longing, and redemption, My Sense of Silence is an eloquent remembrance of human ties and human failings.

This title breaks new ground by emphasizing the global, transgender, homonational, and posthuman conceptions of disability. Including physical disabilities, but exploring issues around pain, mental disability, and invisible disabilities, this edition explores more varieties of bodily and mental experience.
Obsession, Paperback (October 2009)
We live in an age of obsession. But obsession is not only a phenomenon of modern existence: it is a medical category. Beginning with the roots of the disease in demonic possession and its secular successors, this work traces the evolution of obsessive behavior from a social and religious fact of life into a medical and psychiatric problem.
