    *Search for Scientific Proof of Life After Death. In 'Ghost Hunters,' Pulitzer-Prize-winning author Deborah Blum tells the gripping story of a small group of scientists who launched a formal, scientific investigation into 'unexplainable' phenomena such as clairvoyance and ghosts in the late nineteenth century. 'Ghost Hunters' both chronicles the extraordinary cases investigated by the team of scientists and examines the lives and choices of the team members themselves. At the heart of this story, though, lies the conflict between rationalism and spiritualism that continues to rage today. Gripping and endlessly readable, this is an in-depth look into one of the most unique psychological quests ever.

    In the early twentieth century, affection between parents and their children was discouraged?psychologists thought it would create needy kids, and doctors thought it would spread infectious disease. It took a revolution in psychology to overturn these beliefs and prove that touch ensures emotional and intellectual health. In Love at Goon Park, Pulitzer Prize winner Deborah Blum charts this profound cultural shift by tracing the story of Harry Harlow?the man who studied neglect and its life-altering consequences on primates in his lab. The biography of both a man and an idea, Love at Goon Park ultimately invites us to examine ourselves and the way we love.
