3. A is for Arsenic: The Poisons of Agatha Christie - Kathryn Harkup

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: 19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Agatha Christie used poison to kill her characters more often than any other murder method, with the poison itself being a central part of the novel, and her choice of deadly substances was far from random; the chemical and physiological characteristics of each poison provide vital clues to discovery of the murderer. Christie demonstrated her extensive chemical knowledge in many of her novels, but this is rarely appreciated by the reader. A is for Arsenic looks at why certain chemicals kill, how they interact with the body, and the feasibility of obtaining, administering and detecting these poisons, both at the time the novel was written and today

5. A Shadow Above - Joe Shute

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: 19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

For millennia, we have tried to explain ourselves using the raven as a symbol. It occupies a unique place in British history. The raven's hulking black shape has come to represent many things: death, all-seeing power, the underworld, and a wildness that remains deep within us. Legend has it that the fate of the nation rests upon the raven, and should the resident birds ever leave the Tower of London, then the entire kingdom will fall. While so much of our wildlife is vanishing, ravens are returning after centuries of exile. Joe Shute follows ravens across their new hunting grounds, examining our complicated and challenging relationship with these birds.

6. Admissions: A Life in Brain Surgery - Henry Marsh

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: 19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

Sensational...Marsh is curmudgeonly, unflinching, clinical, competitive, often contemptuous and consistently curious. In Admissions he scrubs up just as well the second time around and continues to revel in his joyous candour (THE SUNDAY TIMES)

Superb...a eulogy to surgery and a study of living. I didn't want this book to end. Henry Marsh is part of a growing canon of superb modern medical writers...whose storytelling and prose are transportative...His timing is also impeccable...His sentences, too, feel like works of the finest craftmanship, made with the love that goes into both his woodwork and surgery (Jessamy Calkin DAILY TELEGRAPH)

Marsh is, given his profession, a surprisingly emotional man, likably so. His account of his younger self that threads through this compulsive book is a Bildungsroman in itself. He is also a fine writer and storyteller, and a nuanced observer (Tim Adams OBSERVER)

Do No Harm, candid and tender, was one of the most powerful books written by a doctor...His follow-up book does not disappoint. The maverick is back, even more blunt and irascible, with tales of thrilling, high-wire operations at medicine's unconquered frontier, woven through with personal memoir...Marsh in full spate is quite magnificent...a master of tar-black, deadpan humour (Melanie Reid THE TIMES)

9. Being Mortal: Illness, Medicine and What Matters in the End - Atul Gawande

Largeprint (paperback) Our price: 19.50  - Click book title for availability and further details

For most of human history, death was a common, ever-present possibility. It didn't matter whether you were five or fifty - every day was a roll of the dice. But now, as medical advances push the boundaries of survival, we have become increasingly detached from the reality of being mortal. So here is a story about the modern experience of mortality and how medicine has changed this and where our ideas about death have gone wrong. Atul Gawande outlines a story that crosses the globe, as he examines his experiences as a surgeon and those of his patients and family and learns to accept the limits of what he can do.

12. Can a Health Care Market Be Moral? A Catholic Vision - Mary J. McDonough

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 23.00  - Click book title for availability and further details

This book fills a large gap in Catholic social thought by assessing the use of market ideas and practices in the delivery of U.S. health care. Based on her long experience as a lawyer and state representative in helping needy people receive medical care, McDonough presents a sophisticated and nuanced evaluation of the market in light of recent debates among health care economists. The market is not evil, she says, but the invisible hand touted by Adam Smith cannot handle the job alone--government must take a more active role in distributing medical care to all citizens in the U.S. Her arguments are grounded in Catholic social teaching--a tradition that recognizes the value of competition and the market but insists that government provide universal health care--and attend, first and foremost, to its neediest citizens. The first two chapters analyze Catholic social thought and health care; chapters 3 and 4 explore market approaches to health care; chapter 5 summarizes a "value dimension" approach to health care, promulgated by Daniel Callahan (McDonough's intellectual mentor); and chapter 6 offers a Catholic vision of health care, one that allows for some market mechanisms--viz., private insurance, managed care, and co-payments--within a larger framework of justice and concern for the least advantaged. Central to McDonough's thesis is that the market cannot be moral of its accord. And one of the first questions policy makers must ask is this: What kinds of values should guide decisions about health care? What exactly are the ultimate goals of medicine? Something has to give; the system can't accommodate unlimited care for all persons. The answers aren't easy or obvious, but they will involve a consideration of shared values and fundamental justice that heretofore have been absent in the debate.

13. Caregivers of Persons Living with HIV/AIDS in Kenya An Ecological Perspective - Charnetta Gadling-Cole, Sandra Edmonds Crewe, Mildred C Joyner

Largeprint (Paperback) Our price: 11.69  - Click book title for availability and further details

Most of the HIV/AIDS caregivers in Kenya live in various parts of the country and share many of the trials and tribulations associated with providing care to someone suffering from a terminal illness. Some have been forced into the role due to the death of their love one, while others may have voluntarily taken on the responsibility on a firm belief that the care they provide will make a difference. The experiences shared in this book capture some of day-to-day political, social, economic, cultural challenges and obstacles encountered by the HIV/AIDS caregivers in Nairobi, Kenya. Caregiver challenges are reviewed and recommendations are offered on the way forward.

With more than a million victims every year, more than any other disease, including malaria, tuberculosis is once again proving itself to be one of the smartest killers humanity has ever faced.
