Hettinga, Kathy T.
Beginning in 1994, award-winning photographer and installation artist Kathy T Hettinga began a fourteen-year project to document an unknown body of funerary folk art displayed in the cemeteries of rural and largely Hispanic communities in the San Luis Valley in southern Colorado. Her photographs of unique grave markers made of wood, concrete, metal, sandstone, glass and other materials by individuals or families to commemorate the passing of love ones capture the ethereal beauty of the cemeteries and serve as a touchstone for our common understanding of loss, grief, and the need to memorialise and pay tribute. 178pp.

La Fontaine, Jean De; Translated By Shapiro, Norman R.
The Contes et nouvelles en vers of Jean de La Fontaine (1621-1695) were published at various times throughout his life, both before and after his celebrated Fables, between 1664 and 1685, and even posthumously. In quite a different key from the more innocent Fables, the Contes often threatened to get him in trouble with both Church and Acadmie. It was, indeed, the bawdy tales of Boccaccio, Rabelais, and other medieval and renaissance masters of ribaldry that inspired La Fontaine's Contes, presented here in a chronologically and stylistically diverse selection translated by Norman R. Shapiro. This spirited recent translation, spanning the entire corpus, offers about half the tales, from early to late, in all their variety of lengths and poetic narrative forms. The mildly suggestive mingle with the frankly bawdy, while others would hardly raise a vicar's eyebrow. Yet all these gems from one of France's truly great poets, scrupulously faithful to the originals, are rendered with the spirit of his style, his subtle rhythms, cadences, rhymes, and delectable wit left intact. 273pp. N.B. Corners slightly creased.

Edited By Beuscart, Regis; Hackl, Werner; Nohr, Christian
When someone enters hospital for examination or treatment, is given a doctor's prescription, receives medication from a pharmacist or has his drugs administered by a nurse, he assumes that his health and welfare will benefit from this medical intervention. But the effectiveness of available therapies should also be viewed from the perspective of potentially negative consequences: adverse drug events (ADE). ADEs endanger patients' safety and increase hospital costs, making reduction of preventable ADEs a crucial and challenging public health issue. This book presents papers from the workshop 'Patient Safety through Intelligent Procedures in medication' focusing on the following topics: the identification of ADE and medication errors in hospital settings; the role of human and organizational factors on ADE and medication errors; and information and communication technologies to prevent or correct ADEs and medication errors. The papers in this book are the work of active scientific experts in the field and confront ideas and experiences arising worldwide and in particular from several EU projects directed at resolving ADE problems. Here is an opportunity to find common ways for solving shared difficulties and for making improvements happen. 225pp.
