Black, Georgina Dopico
In "Perfect Wives, Other Women", Georgina Dopico Black examines the role played by women's bodies - specifically the bodies of wives - in Spain and Spanish America during the Inquisition. In her quest to show how both the body and soul of the married woman became the site of anxious inquiry, Dopico Black mines a variety of Golden Age texts for instances in which the era's persistent preoccupation with racial, religious, and cultural otherness was reflected in the depiction of women. Subject to the scrutiny of a remarkable array of gazes-inquisitors, theologians, religious reformers, confessors, poets, playwrights, and, not least among them, husbands - the bodies of perfect and imperfect wives elicited diverse readings.Dopico Black reveals how imperialism, the Inquisition, inflation, and economic decline each contributed to a correspondence between the meanings of these human bodies and 'other' bodies, such as those of the Jew, the Moor, the Lutheran, the degenerate, and whoever else departed from a recognised norm. The body of the wife, in other words, became associated with categories separate from anatomy, reflecting the particular hermeneutics employed during the Inquisition regarding the surveillance of otherness. Dopico Black's compelling argument will engage students of Spanish and Spanish American history and literature, gender studies, women's studies, social psychology and cultural studies. 307pp. N.B. Black ink mark across bottom foredge of pages. Content unaffected.

Edited By Halachmi, Arie and Bouckaert, Geert
This volume deals with concepts relating to public productivity through quality and strategic management. It is suggested that quality is not a simple or single concept: it can mean compliance with pre-determined specifications of processes or outputs; it can mean assessment of outcomes or gatekeeping - in other words, assuring the quality of the inputs. There are obvious parallels with measuring productivity - if you cannot get good handles on outputs, then use inputs. This problem of the simple becoming complicated was understood by the Japanese at the inception of their "productivity movement". Having carefully analyzed how Europe had adopted and adapted American productivity techniques and approaches, and being faced with a turbulent system of industrial relations and a poor quality image, the initiators of the Japanese productivity movement came to the conclusion that, at least, a cease-fire and, at best, a treaty had to be negotiated between organized labour, management and government. The resulting 1955 productivity principles are addressed in this book. 271pp.

Halper, June (editor); Holland, Nancy J. (editor)
Multiple sclerosis (MS) is a chronic, frequently debilitating neurologic disease that is most often diagnosed at a relatively young age. The disease lasts a lifetime, and involves a wide range of issues, some disease-related and others the result of living and aging with a chronic and sometimes disabling condition. This superb volume is the only definitive text on the comprehensive nursing care of people with MS. As the most direct link to patients and their families, nurses are in the unique position of providing a conduit for physicians and other health care professionals to work with patients, their families, and the community. Nursing care in MS is a collaboration between the patient/family and the nurse, a partnership whose goal is self-awareness and self-responsibility; whose activities involve a great deal of self-care. This book is not simply a nursing text - the lessons that it imparts will be useful in many fields of chronic disease management. The book opens with an overview of multiple sclerosis and its implications for nursing practice; a discussion of theoretical concepts, research, and clinical trials; and an overview of symptom management. This is followed by chapters dealing with specific areas relating to nursing management of the person with MS, including the management of elimination dysfunction, the prevention of complications in severely disabled individuals, psychosocial issues, sexuality and family planning, issues of special relevance to female patients, and interactions with rehabilitation services. Of particular interest are chapters dealing with the nursing implications of disease modifying agents, the role of complementary therapies, patient and family education, client advocacy, and hope as a unifying concept in managing this unpredictable disease. Appendices that include an extensive list of resources and medication sheets for all of the most commonly used agents in the management of multiple sclerosis will be referred to constantly.
