Pandemic : facing AIDS by Kofi A Annan( Book )
4 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 178 libraries worldwide
"Pandemic: Facing AIDS presents images of the forty-two million women, children, and men around the world who live with the disease that defines this century. It presents the scope of the pandemic, the different cultural and national responses to it, and it puts a human face on the disease of a severity not seen since the Bubonic Plague in the fourteenth century. An overview of the global strategy to address the problem that has killed twenty-five million people worldwide, it includes images of AIDS that have themselves been part of the defining face of the disease. In 2002 alone, over five million people were newly infected, and at the dawn of a new millennium, AIDS threatens political and economic stability globally, hindering development and causing terrible human suffering. But there have been victories, and more are possible. Countries like Uganda have encouraged education and outreach which have markedly dropped the rate of infection and improved life for those already infected. Thailand has sponsored information and care for women and children that has helped stem the tide. Brazil has advocated strongly for affordable pharmaceutical and health treatment for its citizens. With education and resources, the world's AIDS crisis is solvable - if the will to do so is there."--BOOK JACKET

Laogai : the machinery of repression in China ( Book )
4 editions published in 2009 in English and Chinese and held by 115 libraries worldwide
"An eloquent and vivid summary in shocking, never-before-seen photographs smuggled out of the People's Republic of China, LAOGAI exposes the human rights record of the world's most authoritarian state-a nation whose own remarkable transformation has not extended to the basic demands of its people for freedom." "From the coal mines of Sichuan to the giant plantation farms of Zhejiang, the vast spiderweb of the Chinese prison system has its tentacles into every corner of the country, with over three million slave laborers working to make the economic miracle happen. With essays from leading Chinese scholar Andrew J. Nathan and leading dissident Harry Wu, this book discusses the wide range of challenges China faces: from freedom of expression to religious choice, from police brutality to state execution, as well as controversial issues like torture, organ trafficking, forced sterilization, and more." "This carefully researched book includes a comprehensive timeline, recent Chinese history of human rights, reading list, and resource information including lists of banned books, websites, controversial art, and more. It pretexts tales of eye-opening horror, heartbreak, and heroism, as dozens of former prisoners of the Laogai share their individual stories and reveal the pain and dirt that underlies China's shiny modern surface. Moving and disturbing, LAOGAI gives lie to the notion that China is headed to democratization, and urges that on the occasion of the People's Republic's 60th anniversary, we take an honest look at human rights in China, with the chilling knowledge of how the apparatus of control and oppression in this last great communist power remains unchanged."--BOOK JACKET

Subterranea by Sally Gall( Book )
3 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 94 libraries worldwide
"Here, in a series of images of the underworld taken over a four-year period in Mexcio, Belize, Southeast Asia, the U.S., and Europe, Sally Gall explores a spiritual realm enhanced by the history of early human passage, myth and spiritual transcendence." "In Subterranea, the objective universe is gone, and only the subjective remains. Eternal time is frozen in a fantastic and other worldly architecture: crumbling walls, stalactities and stalagmites coated with icy limestone and calcite formations gloaming in the darkness, bleached white as chalk. With each image, Sally Gall draws us deeper into a world forgotten. Somber and mortuary thought seems natural and right in these great spaces - thoughts of Aeneas and Charon the boatman at the mouth of Hades and the shades waiting to be rowed across to the eternal beyond - a recognition that we all come at last to darkness and silence."--BOOK JACKET
