Sex and gender in biomedicine theories, methodologies, results by Gesine Thea Klinge( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 769 libraries worldwide
Sex and gender in biomedicine are innovative research concepts of theoretical and clinical medicine that enable a better understanding of health and disease, evidence-based knowledge, effective therapies, and better health outcomes for women and men. Gender medicine, which focuses on the impact of gender on human physiology, pathophysiology, and clinical features of diseases, stimulates new ways of doing research by considering sex and gender at all levels of investigation, from basic research into gene polymorphisms to health behavior. New research questions have been put forward that focus not on differences per se but on the developmnetal path of these differences. In this book, contributions from the fields of neuroscience, addiction research, and organ transplantation exemplify concepts, approaches, methods and results in the field of gender medicine

In Perspectives on the Old Saxon Heliand, Valentine Pakis brings together recent scholarship to address new turns in the field and engage with relevant academic arguments of the past three decades. Furthering the ongoing critical discussion of both text and culture, this volume reflects the current state of medieval studies while demonstrating its evolution since the 1970s. --Book Jacket
The will to believe Woodrow Wilson, World War I, and America's strategy for peace and security by Ross A Kennedy( Computer File )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 740 libraries worldwide
A fresh analysis of Woodrow Wilson?s national security strategy during World War I?By addressing all sides of the American debate on national security questions, and by showing both the complexity and the nuance that characterized that debate, The Will to Believe fills a major gap in the literature on both World War I and all things ?Wilsonian.?? ?Mary Ann Heiss, series editor, New Studies in U.S. Foreign Relations SeriesIn many ways, Woodrow Wilson and the era of World War I cast a deeper shadow over contemporary foreign policy debates than more recent events, such as the Cold War. More so than after World War II, Wilson and his contemporaries engaged in a wide-ranging debate about the fundamental character of American national security in the modern world. The Will to Believe is the first book that examines that debate in full, offering a detailed analysis of how U.S. political leaders and opinion makers conceptualized and pursued national security from 1914 to 1920.Based on extensive research gleaned from public documents, presidential papers, and periodicals, The Will to Believe departs significantly from existing scholarship, which tends to examine only Wilson or his critics. This is the first study of America?s approach to the war, which examines all major U.S. perspectives from across the political spectrum and analyzes Wilson?s security strategy from the beginning of U.S. neutrality through the end of his presidency. During World War I there was no consensus among Wilson and his contemporaries on such fundamental issues as the nature of the international system, the impact of security policies on domestic freedom, the value of alliances and multinational organizations, and the relationship between democracy and peace. Historian Ross A. Kennedy focuses on how three competing groups?pacifists, liberal internationalists, and Atlanticists?addressed these and other national security issues

Far from Algiers poems by Djelloul Marbrook( file )
1 edition published in 2008 in English and held by 736 libraries worldwide
Winner of the 2007 Stan and Tom Wick Poetry Prize "How honored I am-how lucky-to have been able to choose this superb first book by Djelloul Marbrook that honors a lifetime of hidden achievement. . . . Sometimes the poems seem utterly symbolic, surreal; they are philosophical, historical, psychological, political, and spiritual. The genius is in the many ways these poems can be read. I kept being rewarded by new awarenesses of the poet's intentions, by the breadth and scope of the manuscript. As I read, I felt more and more that it was impossible that this was a first book. It seemed the writer knew exactly what to say, and, more importantly, exactly what to leave out." -Toi Derricotte, judge "In a dizzying and divisive time, it's beautiful to see how Djelloul Marbrook's wise and flinty poems outfox the Furies of exile, prejudice, and longing. Succinct, aphoristic, rich with the poet's resilient clarity in the face of a knockabout world, Far from Algiers is a remarkable and distinctive debut." -Cyrus Cassells "Djelloul Marbrook, 'a highly skilled outsider,' bursts into poetry with this splendid first book, which brings together the energy of a young poet with the wisdom of long experience."

Signs of resistance American deaf cultural history, 1900 to World War II by Susan Burch( file )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 726 libraries worldwide
"During the early nineteenth century, American schools for deaf education regarded sign language as the "natural language" of deaf people, using it as the principal mode of instruction and communication. These Schools inadvertently became the seedbeds of an emerging Deaf community and culture. But by mid-century, an oralist movement developed that sought to suppress sign language, removing Deaf teachers and requiring deaf people to learn speech and lip reading. Historians have all assumed that in the early decades of the twentieth century oralism triumphed overwhelmingly." "Susan Burch shows us that everyone has it wrong; Deaf students, teachers, and staff consistently and creatively subverted oralist policies and goals within the schools. Ultimately, the efforts to assimilate Deaf people resulted in fortifying their ties to a separate Deaf cultural community." "In Signs of Resistance, Susan Burch persuasively reinterprets early twentieth century Deaf history. Using community sources such as Deaf newspapers, memoirs, films, and oral (sign language) interviews, Burch shows how the Deaf community mobilized to defend sign language, increased its political activism, and clarified its cultural values. In the process, a collective Deaf Consciousness, identity, and political organization were formed."--BOOK JACKET
Stray home poems by Amy M Clark( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 720 libraries worldwide
With poems that combine the self-scrutiny of Philip Larkin with the measure of Elizabeth Bishop, Amy M. Clark burnishes her first collection, Stray Home, with exquisite understatement and formal control. Sweeter than Larkin and more intimate than Bishop, these poems address the suppressed pain and shame of living as a childless woman in a world of mothers, the dissociation attendant on depression and fraught family relationships, and the search for a sense of belonging in the face of dislocation. Stray Home cuts deeply to discover the buried emotions and insights universal to all suffering and compassionate human beings. --University of North Texas Press
The heart's truth essays on the art of nursing by Cortney Davis( file )
1 edition published in 2009 in English and held by 708 libraries worldwide
A collection revealing the joys, fears, intimacies, and transcendent moments shared by a nurse and her patients ?The Heart?s Truth should be required reading at every nursing school in the country. It offers a powerful and moving portrait of what it means to be a nurse. In writing that is of the highest quality, the reader is swept up in the drama of nursing and the compassion with which it is perfused.??Richard Selzer, surgeon and author ?Davis has perfectly captured the broader arc of movement from awkward, insecure novice to competent, often morally exhausted, clinician, with a poet?s touch.??Amy M. Haddad, PhD ?In her breathtaking collection of essays, Cortney Davis reveals ?the details of flesh? that comprise the core of a nurse?s experience. Writing with the power, precision and careful observation of a seasoned clinician and the sensitivity of a poet, Davis guides the reader along the challenging path of her career.?? Richard Berlin, poet and physician ?Cortney Davis has an uncanny ability to give voice to the profound act of everyday nursing and its power in transforming the lives of people. Somehow, she sees the shadows and ghosts that fill our bodies and souls and makes sense of them, showing us that the divide between patient and provider is an artificial one that can get in the way of true understanding. The Heart?s Truth reminds us of the power of reflection and narrative and challenges us to reclaim these ways of knowing in the interest of healing our patients?and ourselves.??Diana J. Mason, PhD, RN, FAAN, Editor-in-Chief, American Journal of Nursing What is it like to be a student nurse washing the feet of a dying patient? To be a newly graduated nurse, in charge of the Intensive Care Unit for the first time, who wonders if her mistake might have cost a life? Or to be an experienced nurse who, by her presence and care, holds a patient to this world? Poet and nurse practitioner Cortney Davis answers these questions by examining her own experiences and through them reveals a glimpse into the minds and hearts of those who care for us when we are at our most vulnerable. The Heart?s Truth offers the joys, frustrations, fears, and miraculous moments that nurses, new and experienced, face every day. In these finely wrought essays, Davis traces her twin paths, nursing and writing, inviting readers to share what she discovers along the way?lessons not only about the human body but also about the human soul. Rich, intimate, and never shrinking from the realities of illness, the grace of healing, or the wonder of words, The Heart?s Truth will inspire student caregivers, intrigue readers, and affirm those who have long worked in nursing, a profession that Davis calls ?odd, mysterious, humbling, addicting, and often transcendent.?

An Appalachian reawakening West Virginia and the perils of the new machine age, 1945-1972 by Jerry Bruce Thomas( file )
1 edition published in 2010 in English and held by 683 libraries worldwide
As the long boom of post-World War II economic expansion spread across the globe, dreams of white picket fences, democratic ideals, and endless opportunities flourished within the United States. Middle America experienced a period of affluent stability built upon a modern age of industrialization. Yet for the people of Appalachia, this new era brought economic, social, and environmental devastation, preventing many from realizing the American Dream. Some families suffered in silence, some joined a mass exodus from the mountains, while others, trapped by unemployment, poverty, illness, and injury, became dependent upon welfare. As the one state most completely Appalachian, West Virginia symbolized the region's dilemma, even as it provided much of the labor and natural resources that fueled the nation's prosperity
