Polio ( )
6 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 944 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Polio is a collection of essays written by nine people who experienced the disease in several ways - those who suffered, their care-givers, and those who worked to destroy this scourge. An opening chapter recounts the history of polio from its earliest depiction in Egyptian art to the present day. Three personal essays recount the experiences of patients who were paralyzed in youth by polio but survived and built successful lives despite the handicaps with which they were afflicted. The challenges of caring for patients with polio are described by two physicians who worked on polio wards in the United States during the great epidemic years of the 1950s. The story of the cultivation of poliovirus - a Nobel Prize-winning accomplishment - and the testing of the resulting vaccine is told by two research scientists who devoted much of their careers to the laboratories where these breakthroughs were achieved. The last two essays - by senior members of the Pan-American Health Organization - describe the monumental public health vaccination programs undertaken throughout Latin America that ultimately led to the successful eradication of polio from the Western Hemisphere in 1994

The Cleveland Experiment ( Visual )
1 edition published in 2001 in English and held by 24 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
The Cleveland Experiment tells how psychologist Dr Howard Hall, travels from Ohio to Baghdad to visit a School of Sufis. His mission is to assess the Sufi's claim to possess a paranormal ability to heal the wounds inflicted on themselves during their religious ceremonies. Impressed by the authenticity of what he has seen, Dr Hall invites a Sufi to visit Cleveland, to see if he can replicate the piercing practice away from the Middle East in the sterile environment of an American hospital within a scientific medical framework. The Cleveland Experiment examines film from Baghdad, Syria and Cleveland and invites a number of experts from a variety of disciplines to comment on Dr Hall's conclusions that there might be a paranormal effect at work in the Sufi ritual
