62 ETKIN, NINA L. Edible Medicines: An Ethnopharmacology Of Food.
University of Arizona Press, Tucson: 2008. s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Chile pepper is used today as a flavoring, but Aztecs also applied it for toothache, sore throat, and asthma. The tonic properties of coffee have been recorded in Islamic pharmacopoeia since the eleventh century, and many peoples have used it to protect against Parkinson's disease. Although much has been documented regarding the nutritional values of foods, until recently little attention has been paid to the pharmacologic potential of diet. This book investigates the health implications of foods from the cuisines of peoples around the world to describe the place of food in health maintenance. In this wide-ranging book, Nina Etkin reveals the pharmacologic potential of foods in the specific cultural contexts in which they are used. Incorporating co-evolution with a biocultural perspective, she addresses some of the physiological effects of foods across cultures and through history while taking into account both the complex dynamics of food choice and the blurred distinctions between food and medicine. Showing that food choice is more closely linked to health than is commonly thought, she helps us to understand the health implications of people's food-centered actions in the context of real-life circumstances. Drawing on an extensive literature that transects food and culture, the history of medicine, ethnopharmacology, food history, nutrition, and human evolution, Edible Medicines demonstrates the intricate relationship between culture and nature. It will appeal to a wide range of scholars and professionals, from anthropologists to nutritionists, as well as general readers seeking a greater understanding of the medicinal aspects of food. "This rich book offers a balanced biocultural explanation of how food and culture meet in our cuisines to foster health across the globe." —Plant Science Bulletin "In her succinct conclusions, Etkin's writing shines as she describes her objectives and theortetical foundations." —Gastronomica

With the compelling style of a novelist, an eye for human pathos, and a sense for the tragi-comic, Marc Flitter has written a stunning debut work. In the stories Flitter tells of more than two dozen patients and tgheir doctors, rfeaders will see people they recognize, perhaps even themselves. "Marc Flitter writes with extraordinary sensitivity and moral reflectiveness about what must be the hardest experiences of a doctor - his own failures and the permanent injury or death of his patients. His book is marked by a tender, melancholy realism - the realism unyielding - which is, somehow, genuinely illuminating and even heartening." - Michael Walzer

76 GESSEN, MASHA. Blood Matters.
Harcourt, Inc., Orlando: 2008. 0151013624 / 9780151013623 Uncorrected Proof. s Softcover. Good condition. Uncorrected Proof. 
In 2004 genetic testing revealed that Masha Gessen had a mutation that predisposed her to ovarian and breast cancer. The discovery initiated Gessen into a club of sorts: the small (but exponentially expanding) group of people in possession of a new and different way of knowing themselves through what is inscribed in the strands of their DNA. As she wrestled with a wrenching personal decision—what to do with such knowledge—Gessen explored the landscape of this brave new world, speaking with others like her and with experts including medical researchers, historians, and religious thinkers. Blood Matters is a much-needed field guide to this unfamiliar and unsettling territory. It explores the way genetic information is shaping the decisions we make, not only about our physical and emotional health but about whom we marry, the children we bear, even the personality traits we long to have. And it helps us come to terms with the radical transformation that genetic information is engineering in our most basic sense of who we are and what we might become.

This is among the many tales told in a work based on the author's sixteen years of experience as a nurse, a book that will shatter forever the reader's casual assumptions about medicine, about doctors, and especially about nurses. The narrator is in her early twenties when she enters nursing, blindly groping for an emotional and financial refuge from a failing marriage. "Carol Gino has written a wonderfully moving book. She tells The Nurse's Story with just the right blend of emotion, compassion and wisdom." - Harold S. Kushner, author of When Bad Things Happen to Good People
