Das Phantom der Oper! Die Lebensgeschichte eines einzigartigen Menschen und ein hervorragender biographischer Roman «Ich bin nicht in Versuchung. Ich bin nicht mehr allein in der Finsternis. Vor meinen Augen sehe ich tausend kleine Teufel, die schwarze Kerzen entzünden am Rand des Weges, der zum blendend schönen Abgrund führt. Eine kühle Brise lässt meinen Umhang wehen wie die Schwingen des Todesengels, wie einen dunklen hochaufragenden Schatten, aufsteigend wie der Phönix aus der Asche, böswillig, allmächtig ...» Susan Kay erzählt die bisher ungeschriebene Lebensgeschichte des "Phantoms der Oper", einer Figur, die eine zeitlose Faszination auf den Leser ausübt.

Phantom limb pain is one of the most intractable and merciless pains ever known—a pain that haunts appendages that do not physically exist, often persisting with uncanny realness long after fleshy limbs have been traumatically, surgically, or congenitally lost. The very existence and “naturalness” of this pain has been instrumental in modern science’s ability to create prosthetic technologies that many feel have transformative, self-actualizing, and even transcendent power. In Phantom Limb, Cassandra S. Crawford critically examines phantom limb pain and its relationship to prosthetic innovation, tracing the major shifts in knowledge of the causes and characteristics of the phenomenon. Crawford exposes how the meanings of phantom limb pain have been influenced by developments in prosthetic science and ideas about the extraordinary power of these technologies to liberate and fundamentally alter the human body, mind, and spirit. Through intensive observation at a prosthetic clinic, interviews with key researchers and clinicians, and an analysis of historical and contemporary psychological and medical literature, she examines the modernization of amputation and exposes how medical understanding about phantom limbs has changed from the late-19th to the early-21st century. Crawford interrogates the impact of advances in technology, medicine, psychology and neuroscience, as well as changes in the meaning of limb loss, popular representations of amputees, and corporeal ideology. Phantom Limb questions our most deeply held ideas of what is normal, natural, and even moral about the physical human body.
