Hirschl, Meta Chaya
The word yoga, first recorded in approximately 4000 BCE, is Sanskrit for 'union'. Typically it signifies a uniting of body, mind, and spirit leading to deepening states of happiness and freedom. This book places this ancient practice in a uniquely modern-day context. Interwoven with discussions about the eight limbs of yoga as presented in the original literature, including the core principles, Sanskrit Devanagari, mantras, poses, breath work, and meditation, are recipes, a derivation of terms, compassion ate communication guidelines, basic teaching principles, wisdom and photos of the great sages, and illuminating accounts by contemporary yogis. Throughout, readers are guided to connect to their inner selves, quiet the mind, and harness their power to achieve bliss and transcend fear, emotional turmoil, and attachment to the stresses of life. This informative reference features a highly visual format, including a first-ever historical timeline of yogic philosophies, texts, and key figures. Introduced too is yoga therapy for everything from low back or knee pain to depression. Each chapter concludes with specific invitations to delve further into the heart of yoga. Designed to enrich any chosen style of practice, this book is ideal not only for yoga students and aspiring yoga teachers but also for healing arts practitioners and their patients, as well as anyone seeking to cultivate a vibrantly healthy body, mind, and spirit. Slight crease to bottom edge of cover otherwise new. 300pp.

This volume includes all procedures and practices relating to the selection of organ donors, removal of organs, preservation and allocation for a successful transplantation. The improving preservation solutions as well as the improving survival rates of transplant patients should make it a useful book on all aspects of transplantation. The chapters are divided into four sections: donor conditioning and surgery; organ preservation; allocation and logistics; ethics and legislation in organ donation. The growing awareness of the need for organ donation and adaptation of laws, as well as the increasing efforts of the transplantation organizations to stimulate organ donation, makes this text a timely publication. This book is aimed at medical specialists in any hospital involved, or potentially involved, in organ procurement, transplant co-ordinators and administrators, transplant surgeons, nephrologists and other organ specialists and researchers. The chapters on surgical techniques are illustrated with original artwork by Bernard Tardieu.381pp. Slight fade mark at base of spine.

Health care is clearly in transition - but to where? Managed or unmanaged care? HMO's or not? Are insurance companies and hospitals the enemy of health care for their own patients? What about the 40,000,000 uninsured in America? Don't ask the patients, for they have become the ping pong balls in the health care game. This book examines important issues in this evergrowing maze.
