Title Strange contagion : inside the surprising science of infectious behaviors and viral emotions and what they tell us about ourselves

Title Strange contagion :
Author Kravetz, Lee Daniel, author.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "Picking up where The Tipping Point leaves off, respected journalist Lee Daniel Kravetz's Strange Contagion is a provocative look at both the science and lived experience of social contagion.<strong></strong> In 2009, tragedy struck the town of Palo Alto: A student from the local high school had died by suicide by stepping in front of an oncoming train. Grief-stricken, the community mourned what they thought was an isolated loss. Until, a few weeks later, it happened again. And again. And again. In six months, the high school lost five students to suicide at those train tracks. A recent transplant to the community and a new father himself, Lee Daniel Kravetz's experience as a science journalist kicked in: what was causing this tragedy? More important, how was it possible that a suicide cluster could develop in a community of concerned, aware, hyper-vigilant adults? The answer? Social contagion. We all know that ideas, emotions, and actions are communicable--from mirroring someone's posture to mimicking their speech patterns, we are all driven by unconscious motivations triggered by our environment. But when just the right physiological, psychological, and social factors come together, we get what Kravetz calls a "strange contagion:" a perfect storm of highly common social viruses that, combined, form a highly volatile condition. Strange Contagion is simultaneously a moving account of one community's tragedy and a rigorous investigation of social phenomenon, as Kravetz draws on research and insights from experts worldwide to unlock the mystery of how ideas spread, why they take hold, and offer thoughts on our responsibility to one another as citizens of a globally and perpetually connected world"-- Provided by publisher.

Summary "Eight years ago, her husband and children were killed in a plane crash. Now, new evidence reveals that they didn't die--her husband deliberately vanished--and that he knows a secret the powerful forces will stop at nothing to keep hidden. Kathy Kelly's world was shattered when a plane carrying her husband--an Iraq War veteran and devoted father--and her two children vanished from the sky one night. No trace of the plane was ever found. Eight years later, Kathy has struggled to rebuild her life, but then wreckage of his plane is found in the wilderness of Great Smoky Mountain National Park--hundreds of miles from where her husband's plane should have been. The pilot perished in the crash, but there is no sign of Jack or the children. Could they have made it out alive after all? But if so, where have they been all this time? Where are they now? As Kathy searches for any clue about what happened to her family, the investigation uncovers some unsettling clues--including a briefcase containing millions of dollars in cash, a priceless mask stolen from an Iraqi museum, and a clue that links Jack's disappearance with the suspicious death of Kathy's mother years ago. But she soon learns that others have been looking for the wreckage and its occupants for a long time. Others who are determined to make sure she never finds her family and that they remain dead. Shadowy, powerful people who will kill for what was on board--a secret her husband was the keeper of. A secret so powerful it will open a Pandora's box of bloody revenge--one that reaches back into the past and into the highest echelons of wealth and power, all the way to the White House. This breathless, pulse-pounding thriller examines the very real billions in cash and priceless artifacts that vanished into the pockets of powerful American men during the Iraq war, and examines the extreme lengths some people will go to protect the secrets of what really happened to all that money"-- Provided by publisher.
