Book Description: As founder of the Alliance Against Urban 4x4s, Sian has been instrumental in influencing London's congestion charge and its punitive rates for unnecessarily large cars. The tide is turning and sales of 4x4s are falling while bike purchases have risen (to 4.5 million in the UK in 2004). But Sian is not asking you to give up cars and never to go on holiday abroad again, but will show you instead how to reduce your carbon footprint in small but effective ways. Similarly, we are now saying no to carrier bags and asking questions about the antecedents of the cheap clothes we buy. Sian will look at the choices we can make, not just in consumables, but also in our food purchases, gifts to friends and family, in restaurants, and beauty services. Change the world without changing your life. : Review: Sian Berry, dubbed 'environmental viagra' by the Independent, will show you how to make simple changes to your lifestyle for the better before it's too late. --The Bookseller : About the Author: Dubbed 'Environmental Viagra' by the Independent, Sian Berry is the 32-year-old female spokesperson for the Green Party and the founder of the campaign group 'Alliance Against Urban 4x4s'.

Available Now. "Book Description: This text seeks to make a contribution to our understanding of the way our society responds to issues of death and dying. The transdisciplinary research which informs this discussion is situated in the disciplines of bioethics and palliative care, it uses postmodern notions of discourse and power to explore an organizational response to working with the dying at the Karuna Hospice Service. In modern, Western, technological societies, biomedicine is the dominant discourse which underpins our care of the terminally ill. Bioethics has recently emerged as a discipline concerned with resolving the many ethical dilemmas arising from such a physiological, technologized approach to death. Rather than to add to such studies, this research looks in the direction of alternative ways of responding to the dying in our community. The Karuna Hospice Service was chosen for this research as it presented the possibility of a holistic and spiritual alternative to the positivist, reductionist hegemony of scientific medicine."

Available Now. Book Description: This glossary of English and Russian housing terms aims to give Russian reformers the terminology needed to understand housing policy in the USA, and to introduce American experts to the specificity of the Russian urban housing system, in particular highlighting the features which, being incompatible with a free market, make transition difficult for Russia. This glossary gives a broad picture of housing in the larger context of urban planning in the USA, describing the interaction of the government, the private sector, and the general public in the planning and decision-making process. It also brings together terms that embrace financial markets, such as mortgage markets and bond markets, and makes such concepts as reinvestment easy to understand. New Russian jargon is not represented in the glossary, instead existing American terms are transliterated into Russian. The glossary employs two terms, the USSR and Russia, in order to distinguish between the communist and post-communist periods, and to emphasize that only housing in the Russian Federation is being studied. All the entries are listed in English alphabetical order. Size: 23cm. 110 pages. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 500 grams. Category: Medicine & Health; ISBN: 1859724906.

It examines the changing profile of non-relative adoption between 1987 and 1993, from the author's analysis of 486 case files. Characteristics of the adoptive parents, adopted children and their birth parents are presented in descriptive statistics. Three predictors of adoption stresses are identified. Adjustment in adoption and threat to parental entitlement were positively related to adoption stress; parental education was negatively related to it. Apart from being more stressful, Chinese adopters were found to be significantly different from non-Chinese for having a lower level of acknowledgement of difference. They are more worrisome over the relationship with birth parents, are less ready to reveal adoption, have better adoptive parent-child relationship, and possess higher levels of personal qualities. The findings of the study suggest that a post-legal adoption service is urgently needed. Better training for social workers, more Chinese publications for adopters, and further research on adoption outcome and on the adoptive parent-child relationship is recommended."

Available Now. Book Description: There are two conflicting trends in Europe: a demographic shift towards population ageing, and a massive decrease in the labour force participation of older workers (aged 50 years and over). This captivating book offers a refined and authoritative understanding of these trends and the two socio-economic concerns of most European welfare states that have been re-enforced as a consequence. These are: the increasing costs for welfare states to finance 'pathways' from employment to official retirement, and the threat of labour market shortages in the near future as a result of both the ageing process and the early exit of older workers. A variety of new policy initiatives can be observed emerging from these changes in many European countries - this book examines the different welfare state arrangements in nine EU countries plus Hungary, Slovenia and Norway. It considers ways of integrating older workers in the labour market along with differing perspectives on the relation between ageing and work. : Review: 'The editors and contributors are to be commended for producing a book which, in addition to providing a wealth of detailed information on twelve different countries, also manages, unlike so many supposedly comparative works, to draw out important comparisons and Europe-wide trends. The result is an important contribution on a centrally-important economic and social policy issue for Europe in the coming decades.' Rob Sykes, Sheffield Hallam University, UK 'Across Europe governments are attempting to respond to the challenges and opportunities presented by ageing populations and workforces, while striving to reverse declining employment rates among older workers. This accessibly written compilation provides an invaluable guide to current debates and initiatives in a range of European countries. Offering new, comparative insights into one of the most pressing contemporary policy dilemmas, it should be of interest to anyone concerned about the future contours of people's working lives and citizenship rights.' Dr Margaret May, London Metropolitan University, UK '...this book certainly addresses a topic of immediate interest for welfare state researchers and policy makers alike.' Social Policy 'The national case studies offer a comprehensive and interesting analysis of the broad range of policy issues surrounding the early exit path in very different political and socioeconomic contexts.' Transfer '...this fascinating collection of papers on transitions to retirement in 12 European Union countries...[provides] many important perspectives on current European approaches to retirement transitions...' Ageing and Society '...[a] welcome addition to the literature covering issues of interest to older people and the professionals and carers who work with them...a well-written and researched edited collection...offer[s] important insights into a difficult and constantly shifting arena...makes[s] important contributions to the study of older people...well-researched and worth reading.'

It analyzes a variety of critical issues, such as the extent of HIV and AIDS mortality and morbidity by nation state, the role of the health sector, AIDS and health/sex education, the impact of the mass media, different government responses, the role of non-governmental agencies, the law and human rights and the need to eradicate discrimination against so-called ""risk groups"". The study concludes that, although AIDS has not yet reached major proportions - 1200 registered cases by 1994 - there is no room for complacency. It argues that urgent East-West co-operation on equal terms and the rejection of medical/stigma models of health promotion are necessary before it is too little, too late."

An independent evaluation of an Alcohol Treatment Centre based on the disease model (AA and Minnesota), indicates that individual differences are an important variable in treatment outcome and particularly differences in personal beliefs. This study explores the possibility that people showing similar behaviour, but attaching different meanings to it, will respond differently to treatment. In practical terms, effective helping may depend on the availability of theories and methods of helping which are not inconsistent with the clients' own conception of the problem. This volume is suitable for the practical use of drug/alcohol specialists and generic professionals within health care and social work.

Book Description: Since angiotensin II is one of the most potent vasoconstrictors and an important stimulus for the secretion of aldosterone from the adrenal gland, the development of angiotensin II inhibitors is an important step in regulating blood pressure. This class of drug is well-tolerated by patients and these drugs have the added advantage over ACE inhibitors in that they are not associated with cough. Because most drugs can be given once daily and, like ACE inhibitors, they have a useful additive hypotensive effect in combination with diuretics, they are a welcome therapeutic tool in the treatment of hypertension.

"200 Pages. Viruses are microorganisms that are as varied in type as the plants and animals of the macroscopic world. A particularly virulent virus can infect and kill a human host, which is 10 million times larger. The human immune system is the first line of defense against any infectious organism.

220 Pages. Both boards are lightly marked. Dr Schindler critiques the clinical/medical model of community psychology within its objectified client/patient. Conversely, the clinician operates with reified theories, delimiting himself to the role of master psychologist engaged in a disturbed mode of communication with the slave other. The clinician/master is the enforcer of capitalist society's code, which socialises people into a slave mentality. Unable to engage his client in an authentic dialogue, the psychologist is unable to let the historical story of his client unfold phenomenologically as would be the case with the appropriate and intential integration of theory and practice. This same master/clinical relationship to his client can be an analogue for the capitalist owner in his relationship to the worker/citizen. Dr Schindler then innovates practical techniques for therapeutic intervention into the concrete individual and institutional problems of American society.

Available Now. Book Description: Aspirin is effective not only against everyday ailments, but is also useful as a preventative treatment for heart attacks, strokes, and even some types of cancers. Add to that its beneficiary role in a host of other conditions from Alzheimer's to gum disease, and you have a medicine of unparalleled importance to humankind. The story of aspirin is one rich in dramatic twists and surprising discoveries. Diarmuid Jeffreys follows this story from the drug's origins in ancient Egypt, through its industrial development at the end of the nineteenth century and its key role in the great flu pandemic of 1918 that killed more people than World War I, to its subsequent exploitation by the pharmaceutical conglomerates. With a cast of surprising characters - from an American adventurer to an Oxfordshire parson, a forgotten Jewish scientist and an Australian advertising genius - the author reveals how chance and design brought the drug into being at the end of the nineteenth century and how intrigue, greed and ambition combined to make it one of the most commercially successful products of all time. : Review: "A remarkable story...This is more than the story of aspirin: It is a history lesson." -- : About the Author: Diarmuid Jeffreys is a writer, journalist and television producer who has made current affairs and documentary programmes for BBC TV, Channel 4 and others, including Newsnight and The Money Programme. He is also the author of The Bureau: Inside the Modern FBI. He lives with his wife and children near Lewes, East Sussex. Size: 15.9 x 2.5 x 23.5 cm. 352 pages. Multiple copies available this title.

Baptism and Spiritual Kinship in Early Modern England. (St Andrews Studies in Reformation History)

2002 0754605132 / 9780754605133 First Edition Hardcover Fine Condition Fine 1.9 x 15.9 x 23.5 cm 
"250 Pages. Exploring spiritual kinship, this book examines the fortunes of godparenthood in early modern England. Through this study, Will Coster attempts to illuminate some of the major issues in the religious and social history of the early modern era." "Book Description: Despite the importance of the subject to contemporaries, this is the first monograph to look at the institution of godparenthood in early modern English society. Utilising a wealth of hitherto largely neglected primary source data, this work explores godparenthood, using it as a framework to illuminate wider issues of spiritual kinship and theological change. It has become increasingly common for general studies of family and religious life in pre-industrial England to make reference to the spiritual kinship evident in the institution of godparenthood. However, although there have been a number of important studies of the impact of the institution in other periods, this is the first detailed monograph devoted to the subject in early modern England. This study is possible due to the survival, contrary to many expectations, of relatively large numbers of parish registers that recorded the identities of godparents in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. By utilising this hitherto largely neglected data, in conjunction with evidence gleaned from over 20,000 Wills and numerous other biographical, legal and theological sources, Coster has been able to explore fully the institution of godparenthood and the role it played in society. This book takes the opportunity to study an institution which interacted with a range of social and cultural factors, and to assess the nature of these elements within early modern English society. It also allows the findings of such an investigation to be compared with the assumptions that have been made about the fortunes of the institution in the context of a changing European society. The recent historiography of religion in this period has focused attention on popular elements of religious practice, and stressed the conservatism of a society faced with dramatic theological and ritual change. In this context a study of godparenthood can make a contribution to understanding how religious change occurred and the ways in which popular religious practice was affected. : Review: '[This] thoughtful book is a worthy addition to a distinguished series.' Northern History 'Charting the changes in the perception of spiritual kinship in the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, this volume makes a significant contribution to our understanding of the processes of religious change, and the impact that the Reformation had upon religious practice.' History '... by the end of the book we are convinced that the significance of spiritual relationships may have been greater than historians have imagined. It is the organic quality of this book - melding social, economic, religious and political facets of the institution that has allowed Coster to achieve so much. The result is the standard work on early modern English godparenthood.' Parergon 'This monograph on the institution of godparenthood is a carefully researched and impressively detailed piece of social history... The detail and precision of Coster's work, and the thoughtfulness of his interpretation, will make it a reference point on this topic for decades to come.'

Available Now. Book Description: The mechanism of medicine has emerged, its humanism. The physician no longer ministers to a distinctive person but concerns himself with a particular malfunctioning organ. The distressed patient is frequently forgotten or relegated to the background. A thought process is essential for discussing and understanding a symptom. This book brings the doctor to the bedside of the patient for history, clinical examination, investigation, and finally diagnosis. : This book discusses the art of medicine in a simple dialogue style - between the patient and the doctor - and shows through bedside teaching, the treatment of an illness or a disease, rahter than the patient. This illustrated volume contains 20 case studies and sensitises the reader to look at a patient holistically, not just at the body, but at the mind and emotions too. This unique volume teaches medicinal science as an art of healing, where modern medicine is not just restricted to science and technology. Size: 24.6 x 2.5 x 15.7 cm. 386 pages.

The chapters attempt to employ insights from feminist work and gender studies in general, yet insist on criticizing monolithic accounts of masculinity and elaborating on more differentiated, historically and socially embedded accounts of men's lives and their construction of masculinities. The volume is the result of interdisciplinary workshops focusing on questions of male sexuality, the male body and masculine representations - primarily investigating the relationship between change and continuity within western patriarchal society and the theoretical (rather than political) implications of the new reserach in men and masculinities. This volume differs from the first in that it deals with the construction of masculine identities on an individual level - the individual man's relationship with his own body and sexuality."

Available Now. Book Description: 'Wherever the European has trod, death seems to pursue the aboriginal.' So wrote Charles Darwin in 1836. Though there has been considerable discussion concerning their precise demographic impact, reflected in the articles here, there is no doubt that the arrival of new diseases with the Europeans (such as typhus and smallpox) had a catastrophic effect on the indigenous population of the Americas, and later of the Pacific. In the Americas, malaria and yellow fever also came with the slaves from Africa, themselves imported to work the depopulated land. These diseases placed Europeans at risk too, and with some resistance to both disease pools, Africans could have a better chance of survival. Also covered here is the controversy over the origins of syphilis, while the final essays look at agricultural consequences of the European expansion, in terms of nutrition both in North America and in Europe. : Review: 'A principal objective of the Expanding World series is the establishment of the cross-cultural context of European interaction with non-European populations. The volume under review plays an important role in achieving that goal. It succeeds in bringing together some of the finest, most insightful scholarship from the periodical literature. The collection is highly recommended.'

2006 1403999007 / 9781403999009 First Edition Hardcover New 14 x 1.3 x 21.6 cm 
224 Pages. Samantha Crompvoets argues that the current treatment of the post-surgical body within breast cancer culture and wider society allows no space for women to reconceptualize their bodies as normal, feminine, or complete in the absence of a breast or breasts. Instead, the mastectomized body is positioned as transient, to be 'fixed' as soon as possible. Further, that that breast restoration, wearing a prosthesis, or surgical reconstruction, is wrongly situated as the only mechanism available for women to renegotiate a complete sense of self. Drawing on detailed empirical study of a group of women recovering from breast cancer, the book moves beyond individual experiences to examine the politics of the choices available to women and what constrains and influences those choices. This approach provides a powerful analysis of the decision-making dilemmas facing women after breast cancer surgery, and the socio-political context in which their decisions about breast restoration are made.

Available Now. "Book Description: The prevention, detection and treatment of cancer has received enormous scientific and clinical attention in the US and in other developed countries. However, there has been no comprehensive review of the racial/ethnic disparities in cancer among elders, nor the opportunities for cancer prevention within the Medicare population. In this important work, John A. Capitman, Sarita Bhalotra and Mathilda Ruwe address this deficiency. The evidence report summarized in this book offers systematic syntheses of prior published research and qualitative assessments of emerging approaches in order to illustrate and clarify some of the debates surrounding cancer disparities. Based on a large-scale US government-funded review of existing literature and case studies of model programs by a multidisciplinary team, this key work: Provides a comprehensive approach to cancer etiology and prevalence among older people; Integrates genetic, epidemiological, medical care, health services research and social science interpretive frames and current knowledge for cancer control; Explores existing research on reduction in cancer risks through lifestyle modification and the potential applicability of this research to elders of color; Explores the implementation experiences of model programs to reduce cancer care inequalities Develops a conceptual framework of cancer detection and treatment systems across multiple anatomical cancer sites; Examines opportunities for screening, treatment and follow-up service enhancement for elders of color; Fills gaps in current published systematic reviews with respect to older people. : About the Author: John A Capitman is Professor at the Schneider Institute for Health Policy, Heller School for Social Policy and Management, Brandeis University.
