Orton, Peter; Fry, John
Health systems throughout the world are undergoing tremendous change and this is particularly true in the United Kingdom, where the reforms over the last ten years have had a major impact on all aspects of how health care is planned, delivered and managed. This work selects, interprets and puts into context the vast amount of information available on health-care systems both in the UK and elsewhere in the world. Key points include the illustration of trends over time, comparisons with other countries and systems and the coverage of all aspects of health care, both public and private. The result is a single source of facts, figures and, most importantly, interpretation of the vast amount of scattered information available on the UK health care system. The book should be of interest to all those involved in the provision of health services: patients, doctors, nurses, managers and policy makers. 178pp.Slightly marked at base of spine.

Rose, Gene
While nearly all of America's major rivers have been compromised, few have been so misused as the San Joaquin. In its comparatively brief history, it has been dammed, diverted, and depleted beyond comprehension. Here, in colourful and informative prose, veteran author Gene Rose identifies the forces and figures who have shaped, altered, and corrupted this once mighty waterway which some now view as 'a river betrayed'. 150pp.

Nissimi, Hilda
This book tells the little-known story of a fascinating crypto-Jewish community through two centuries and three continents. Beginning as a precarious settlement of a few families in mid-eighteenth-century Mashhad, an Islamic holy city in northern Iran, the community grew into a closely-knit group in response to their forced conversion to Islam in 1839. Muslim hostility and a culture of memory sustained by intra-communal marriages reinforced their separate religious identity, vesting it in strong family and communal loyalty. Mashhadi women became the main agents of the cultural transmission of communal identity and achieved social roles and high status uncharacteristic for contemporary Jewish and Muslim communities. The Mashhadis maintained a double identity - upholding Islam in public while tenaciously holding onto their Jewish identity in secret. The exodus from Mashhad after 1946 relocated the communal centre to Tehran, and later to Israel and after the Khomeini revolution to New York. The relationship between the formation and retention of communal identity and memory practices - with interconnected issues of religion and gender - draws upon existing research on other crypto-faith communities, such as the Judeoconversos, the Moriscos, and the French Protestants, who through the special blend of memory-faith and ethnicity emerged strengthened from their underground period. For the immigration period, the author challenges the old paradigm that "modernity and religion are mutually exclusive". The book also explores the sometimes uncomfortable yet intimate relationships that exist between seemingly incompatible ways of seeing the past, both secular and religious.180pp.
