The Bob Edwards Show, Ethan Watters and Lissy Trullie, January 12, 2010 | [Bob Edwards]

The Bob Edwards Show, Ethan Watters and Lissy Trullie, January 12, 2010

American culture influences what the world eats, wears, listens to, and watches on TV. But in a new book, science writer Ethan Watters argues that Western culture is also changing the way the world deals with mental illness. For example, anorexia rates have risen in Hong Kong over the last 20 years because we exported the idea of the illness itself.

Publisher's Summary

American culture influences what the world eats, wears, listens to, and watches on TV. But in a new book, science writer Ethan Watters argues that Western culture is also changing the way the world deals with mental illness. For example, anorexia rates have risen in Hong Kong over the last 20 years because we exported the idea of the illness itself. And in Japan, Watters tells the story of drug companies selling the idea of depression to create a new market for a new drug. Watters's new book is titled Crazy Like Us: The Globalization of the American Psyche. Then, when critics first noticed Lissy Trullie, they wrote about her alluring androgynous looks and used terms such as artsy, chic, former model, New York downtown, super-cool hipster. Now they're beginning to appreciate her distinctive husky voice, her musicianship and her immense promise as songwriter. Self-Taught Learner, released last year as an EP, has been expanded to become Lissy's first, full-length cd. [Broadcast Date: January 11, 2010]
