5 FISHMAN, SYLVIA BARACK. A Breath Of Life: Feminism In The American Jewish Community.
University Press of New England: . s Softcover. Brand new book. 
Today's Jewish women, successfully availing themselves of the increased educational and occupational opportunities that feminism has encouraged, feel a new sense of self and entitlement. Yet as feminist advances have opened possibilities, they also have called into question traditional roles. The challenge to Jewish women today is to preserve the Jewish community and guarantee its survival while creating meaningful new social and spiritual models that respond to feminist enlightenment. Drawing on interviews with Jewish women from eighteen to eighty across the United States, as well as on new demographic data, scholarship, literature, and media, A Breath of Life explores the full panorama of contemporary options for Jewish women striving to combine community family and individual needs.

6 RILEY, JAMES C. Poverty And Life Expectancy: The Jamaica Paradox.
Cambridge University Press, Cambridge: 2005. 0521850479 / 9780521850476 First Edition (Unstated). h Hardcover with dustjacket. Brand new book. 
A multidisciplinary study that reconstructs Jamaica's rise from low to high life expectancy and explains how that was achieved. Jamaica is one of the small number of countries that has attained a life expectancy nearly matching that in the rich lands, such as the US, despite having a much lower level of per capita income. Why this is so is the Jamaica paradox. This book provides an answer, surveying possible explanations at the outset of Jamaica's rapid gains in life expectancy, in the 1920s, and since. Jamaica's approach to reducing mortality emphasized that school children and their parents master lessons about how to manage disease hazards, and led to a successful collaboration between public health authorities and the people. The contents of this book is as follows: 1. 'A singular blessed island'; 2. What needs to be explained?; 3. The situation around 1920; 4. Rapid gains in life expectancy, 1920-1950; 5. The good years, 1950-1972; 6. Against growing odds, 1972-2000; 7. Conclusion; Appendix 1. Estimates of life expectancy, 1881-1964; Appendix 2. Official sources for quantitative information. Includes an Index.
