Quarantine!: East European Jewish Immigrants and the New York City Epidemics of 1892 Lowest new price: $23.72
Lowest used price: $2.82
List price: $28.00
Author: Howard Markel
Brand: Brand: The Johns Hopkins University Press

In Quarantine! Howard Markel traces the course of the typhus and cholera epidemics that swept through New York City in 1892. The story is told from the point of view of those involved―the public health doctors who diagnosed and treated the victims, the newspaper reporters who covered the stories, the government officials who established and enforced policy, and, most importantly, the immigrants themselves. Drawing on rarely cited stories from the Yiddish American press, immigrant diaries and letters, and official accounts, Markel follows the immigrants on their journey from a squalid and precarious existence in Russia's Pale of Settlement, to their passage in steerage, to New York's Lower East Side, to the city's quarantine islands. At a time of renewed anti-immigrant sentiment and newly emerging infectious diseases, Quarantine! provides a historical context for considering some of the significant problems that face American society today.

Human Biochemistry and Disease

Human Biochemistry and Disease Lowest new price: $260.55
Lowest used price: $140.50
List price: $255.00
Author: Gerald Litwack

This textbook is specifically designed for upper-division undergraduate or graduate students in life science or pre-medical majors including dentistry or pharmacology, who are required to take a biochemistry or medical biochemistry course, but who are not necessarily biochemistry majors. The book adopts a unique approach to the topic compared with other biochemistry textbooks currently available, in that each biochemical subject is introduced by a human disease relating the biochemical principles to be developed in that chapter. The goal is to make biochemistry more meaningful to the student who is not normally shown the connection between biochemistry and medicine.

* Includes an abundance of figures
* Emphasizes human biochemistry
* Introduces each chapter with a relevant disease or clinical relationship

Author: Barry S. Hewlett
Brand: Hewlett, Barry S./ Hewlett, Bonnie L.

In this case study, readers will embark on an improbable journey through the heart of Africa to discover how indigenous people cope with the rapid-killing Ebola virus. The Hewletts are the first anthropologists ever invited by the World Health Organization to join a medical intervention team and assist in efforts to control an Ebola outbreak. Their account addresses political, structural, psychological, and cultural factors, along with conventional intervention protocols as problematic to achieving medical objectives. They find obvious historical and cultural answers to otherwise-puzzling questions about why village people often flee, refuse to cooperate, and sometimes physically attack members of intervention teams. Perhaps surprisingly, readers will discover how some cultural practices of local people are helpful and should be incorporated into control procedures. The authors shed new light on a continuing debate about the motivation for human behavior by showing how local responses to epidemics are rooted both in culture and in human nature. Well-supported recommendations emerge from a comparative analysis of Central African cases and pandemics worldwide to suggest how the United States and other countries might use anthropologists and the insights of anthropologists to mount more effective public health campaigns, with particular attention to avian flu and bioterrorism.

The Psychiatry of AIDS: A Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment

The Psychiatry of AIDS: A Guide to Diagnosis and Treatment Lowest new price: $13.36
Lowest used price: $1.02
List price: $27.00
Author: Glenn J. Treisman MD PhD
Brand: Brand: Johns Hopkins University Press

HIV/AIDS has become a psychiatric epidemic. The disease causes or exacerbates such psychiatric disorders as depression, dementia, schizophrenia, and bipolar disease. At the same time, the presence of a psychiatric disorder can lead to increased risk for HIV infection and worsen the prognosis of patients once they are infected.

Dr. Glenn J. Treisman, who has been described as the "father of AIDS psychiatry," describes the relationship between psychiatric disorders and HIV/AIDS and demonstrates the ways in which effective recognition and treatment of mental disorders can increase a patient's ability to obtain better treatment, improve compliance with medical regimens, and reduce incidents of high-risk behavior.

The book provides HIV/AIDS professionals with overviews of psychiatric disorders, including mood and personality disorders, mental retardation, substance abuse and addiction, and sexual disorders and dysfunction. It also provides mental health professionals with essential information on how to care for patients with HIV and those at risk for the infection. The book discusses psychopharmacology, psychotherapy and counseling, as well as adherence and compliance issues, and the relationship between psychiatric disorders and other STDs. Containing the most up-to-date information on diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment, this book draws on the authors' unrivaled experience and uses case studies to show HIV/AIDS professionals how psychiatric interventions benefit the patient, the medical team, and society as a whole. The cases are rich and engaging, and convey to the reader the intense disorder that can affect the lives of patients.
