Grygier, Pat Sandiford
"A Long Way from Home" offers a comprehensive account of the tuberculosis epidemic among the Inuit in the mid-part of this century. The Inuit were victims not only of the epidemic but also of the Canadian government's shockingly slow response and lack of consideration for their culture. Pat Grygier focuses on patients' experiences and the programmes set up to deal with the epidemic, giving a voice to those involved and a human face to the bare statistics. Based on recollections of patients, interviews with participants in the government programmes, available literature and statistics, and records of the Northern Affairs Program, Grygier examines the programmes for the Inuit in all parts of Canada. She also explores the history of tuberculosis in Canada, conditions of life in the North for both Inuit and non-Natives, and the development and modification of government administration of the North. This new study is aimed at those interested in Native studies, Canadian social and political history, and the history of medicine in Canada.N.B.Previous owner's dedication on ffep.

Edited By Ranger, Terence and Slack , Paul
From plague to AIDS, epidemics have been the most spectacular diseases to afflict human societies. This volume examines the way in which these great crises have influenced ideas, how they have helped to shape theological, political and social thought, and how they have been interpreted and understood in the intellectual context of their time.

Spiegl, Fritz
This dictionary is, in the very best sense, "a good read." It explains the meanings and derivations of the medical terms, abbreviations, mnemonics, and slang used by doctors, nurses, and health-care professionals publicly and privately. It defines, for instance, the abbreviations doctors use in writing prescriptions and explains the Latin and Greek derivations of medical terms. The author writes clearly and often humorously, not hesitating to voice his personal opinions. He guides his readers through the world of medical language like a good friend-clarifying, cautioning, and teaching with wit and laughter. 171pp.
