Hunting the 1918 flu : one scientist's search for a killer virus by Kirsty Duncan( )

9 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 1,315 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In 1918 the Spanish flu epidemic swept the world and killed an estimated 20 to 40 million people in just one year, more than the number that died during the four years of the First World War. To this day medical science has been at a loss to explain the Spanish flu's origin." "Responding to sustained interest in this medical mystery, Hunting the 1918 Flu presents a detailed account of Kirsty Duncan's experiences as she organized an international, multi-discipline scientific expedition to exhume the bodies of a group of Norwegian miners buried in Svalbard, all victims of the flu virus." "Duncan raises questions not only about public health, epidemiology, the ethics of science, and the rights of subjects, but also about the role of age, gender, and privilege in science. While her search for the virus has shown promising results, it has also revealed the dangers of science itself being subsumed in the rush for personal acclaim."--Jacket
Environment and health : protecting our common future by Kirsty Duncan( )

3 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 267 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Good environmental and social practices can generate benefits besides higher profits - competitive advantage and market positioning, easier recruitment and retention of employees, better relations with investors and access to capital, increased learning and innovation, and reduced risks." "This book shares how organizations can make a difference to the environment, human health, and their bottom lines. Although the focus is on corporations, every chapter is relevant to civil society, and governmental and non-governmental organizations, which are interested in the environment and human health, and in taking action. It presents anecdotal, practical, and statistical evidence linking action on the environment and health with financial performance."--Jacket
