Born in the USA: How a Broken Maternity System Must Be Fixed to Put Women and Children First

Born in the USA: How a Broken Maternity System Must Be Fixed to Put Women and Children First Lowest new price: $7.87
Lowest used price: $6.50
List price: $42.00
Author: Marsden Wagner

In this rare, behind-the-scenes look at what goes on in hospitals across the country, a longtime medical insider and international authority on childbirth assesses the flawed American maternity care system, powerfully demonstrating how it fails to deliver safe, effective care for both mothers and babies. Written for mothers and fathers, obstetricians, nurses, midwives, scientists, insurance professionals, and anyone contemplating having a child, this passionate exposé documents how, in the most expensive maternity care system in the world, women have lost control over childbirth and what the disturbing results of this phenomenon have been. Born in the USA examines issues including midwifery and the safety of out-of-hospital birth, how the process of becoming a doctor can adversely affect both practitioners and their patients, and why there has been a rise in the use of risky but doctor-friendly interventions, including the use of Cytotec, a drug that has not been approved by the FDA for pregnant women. Most importantly, this gripping investigation, supported by many troubling personal stories, explores how women can reclaim the childbirth experience for the betterment of themselves and their children.

Born in the USA tells:

* Why women are 70% more likely to die in childbirth in America than in Europe

* What motivates obstetricians to use dangerous and unnecessary drugs and procedures

* How the present malpractice crisis has been aggravated by the fear of accountability

* Why procedures such as cesarean section and birth inductions are so readily used

Drawing the Line: Science and the Case for Animal Rights

Drawing the Line: Science and the Case for Animal Rights Lowest new price: $4.69
Lowest used price: $0.01
List price: $26.00
Author: Steven M. Wise

One of those rare books that can change the reader's view of our position in the world and within the animal kingdom, Unlocking the Cage is a landmark both in its scientific insight and in its challenge to the law. As Steven Wise continues his exploration of animal cognition along the evolutionary spectrum--from apes to dolphins, parrots, elephants, dogs, and even honeybees--he finds astonishing answers to the big question in animal rights today: Where do we draw the line? The law has firm criteria for personhood and Wise shows how certain non-human animals meet those criteria.Readers will be enthralled as they follow Wise's firsthand investigations of the work of the world's most famous animal experts: in Kenya with Cynthia Moss and the touchingly affectionate elephant families of Amboseli, in the mountains of Uganda with Richard Wrangham and the chimpanzees of the Kibale Forest, at MIT with Irene Pepperberg and her amazing and witty gray parrot, Alex, and in the California sanctuary where Penny Paterson has spent two decades learning about the skills and vivid personality of Koko the gorilla. In many cases, Wise was even able to sustain an extended conversation with these extraordinary creatures. Steven Wise is the world's foremost expert on the legal rights of animals and has devoted his life to litigating, writing, and working on their behalf. No one with a shred of curiosity about animals, about rights, or about justice will want to miss this book.A Merloyd Lawrence Book

The Renewal of Generosity: Illness, Medicine, and How to Live

The Renewal of Generosity: Illness, Medicine, and How to Live Lowest new price: $15.42
Lowest used price: $9.98
List price: $20.00
Author: Arthur W. Frank

Through engaging narratives of illness, medical work, and nursing in which people choose to act in ways that affirm their humanity, The Renewal of Generosity depicts the transformation of demoralized medicine into caring relationships through generosity—generosity towards both others and oneself. Arthur Frank demonstrates how generosity is renewed through dialogue, and he also distinguishes authentic dialogue from mere talk. For Frank, medicine is the face-to-face encounter that comes before and after pharmaceuticals, surgeries, and diagnostics. His is a book for people on both sides of the medical encounter who want to offer more to those they meet, and who want a more enriching experience for themselves. A work of enormous grace and compassion, The Renewal of Generosity expands our vision of illness and healing.

"This reflection is starkly honest and never pedantic or condescending. . . . Through a rich telling of stories and reflection on them, Frank conducts a complex symphony of ideas about medicine with writing from a wide range of authors that models how readers might enact and experience the complex, subtle meaning of generosity and gratitude in their own practices. . . . Physicians should rush to read this book, and I hope that patients will join them."—George J. Agich, New England Journal of Medicine

Lowest used price: $48.88
List price: $73.00
Author: Nurit Guttman
Brand: Brand: SAGE Publications, Inc

The ethical dimensions of health communicators’ interventions and campaigns are brought into question in this thought-provoking book. Examining the efforts to effect behavior change, the author questions how far health communication can and should go in changing people’s values. The author broadens the current analysis of interventions and presents conceptual frameworks that help identify values and justifications that are embedded in health communication goals, strategies, and evaluation criteria. This critical approach helps explain how and why choices are made in design and implementation, and provides constructs and frameworks to examine them. It also widens the criteria for program evaluation and policymaking, and provides practitioners, planners, policy-makers, researchers, and students with practice-oriented questions.
