Krainz, Thomas A.
Examines welfare, or 'relief' as it was termed, at the beginning of the twentieth century utilising Colorado county records to assess how rural areas balanced demands on their limited resources. Historians have heretofore focused on welfare in urban settings but Thomas Krainz provides the first account of public assistance in a rural area where locals had to prioritise recurring social issues (disabilities, widows and orphans, and so forth). Universal assistance was offered to the blind as well as injured or unemployed males, but aid for unwed mothers and indigent children often faltered. Contemporary historians who have discussed early twentieth-century relief developments have failed to explain transformations in the systems that occurred and what elements and events shaped policies during this period. Instead, their focus has mainly been to link Progressive Era programs with the later New Deal programs of the 1930s. Krainz examines each side of the welfare issue, the providers and the receivers, with a look at how both evolved over time to accommodate more demands and fewer resources. 325pp.

Bergsma, Jurrit
Patients have personal strategies in solving the problems concerning their illness. Doctors have personal and professional strategies in solving the problems with their patients. This book explores the problematic triangle between doctors, patients and the illness, using illustrations from internal medicine, nephrology, cardiology, oncology and neurology. Enhancement of the doctor-patient interaction is an important contribution to the mutual reduction of stress and therefore the improvement of the course of (long-term) illness. The first part of the book describes reasons why the partnership between doctor and patient should be improved. The second part offers concrete and practical options to achieve that improvement. 202pp.
