Goddard, Paul R.
60 years of the UK's National Health Service and the NHS is treating more people than ever and the population is living longer, healthier lives. That's the good news. But what about the bad news? Most histories of medicine concentrate on 'who invented what' or on the lives of great medical figures. This history looks at the effect on medical science of politics, religion, money supply and social mores. Illustrated throughout by the very coins with which the the medical staff may have been paid, this book is a reminder that medicine has never been free.Someone has to pay for it and in most developed countries that someone is, at least in part, the taxpayer. Are we getting value for money and would another system provide a better service? Having examined the history of State Medicine the book looks in-depth at the problems facing the NHS and compares them with healthcare delivery in other developed nations from around the world. 268pp.

Herschel, Wayne; Lederer, Birgitt
Wayne Herschel, in a culmination of 15 years of research on archaeo-astronomy, has unravelled an extraordinary secret. His journey begins in Egypt discovering that in all probability, all 50 of the pyramids of Lower Egypt represent a grand star map of the brightest stars forming a 360 degree circuit of constellations along the edge of the Milky Way. Even more importantly, the star map denotes the proverbial X that marks the spot. He also identifies the origins of a human blueprint code within the star map. In its context it claims cryptically that our human lineage is associated with what appears to be another nearby Sun-like star system. The human blueprint emerges at other ancient sites. The same star pattern found in Egypt is also found at Stonehenge, Tikal, and Angkor Wat when their nearby monuments are included. The earliest human cave paintings at Lascaux, the Sumerians and the Incas, as do many other ancient civilisations around the world, all appear to emulate the very same star secret with great obsession. In every instance it is their ultimate monument or an inscription that reveres the importance of one nearby Sun-like star. This star is in Taurus, the bull of the heavens, and the ancients passionately worshiped it as the place of their gods. Just when you think you have seen it all, the so-called pyramid ruins on the planet Mars reveal the unthinkable. This full-colour glossy book takes the reader on a riveting journey from one clue to the next, proving its theories at the hands of a whole array of forgotten ancient texts and artefacts. 292pp. N.B. Slight crease to foredge of front cover.

Edited By Chetail,Vincent and Gowlland-Debbas,Vera
This volume highlights the challenges of the international protection of refugees 50 years after the adoption of the 1951 Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees. Focusing on the problems faced by Switzerland in the field of international protection of refugees as well as on the specificity of its asylum law and practice, this publication addresses the refugee problem from a national, European and international perspective. The Swiss experience serves to illustrate the wider problematic of on the one hand, the tensions between security, political and humanitarian concerns encountered by refugee-receiving states, and on the other, the need to preserve an international refugee protection regime which remains an essential component of international law and relations for so long as political solutions are not brought to the root causes of refugee exodus. This reflection on the international protection of refugees is organized around four main themes. The first examines Switzerland's response in the past to mass influx, in the light of historical case studies and the evolution of Swiss asylum law and practice. The second focuses on the question of access of refugees to asylum territories and refugee status determination procedures within the framework of the 1951 Convention on the Status of Refugees and the current Swiss asylum law. The third centres on the wider protection regime currently being forged in Europe to address a broader category of refugees, including solutions for temporary and subsidiary protection. The final theme revolves around return of refugees, including those under the Dayton and recent Kosovo agreements and covers reintegration of returnees, assistance and long-term development. This work is based on papers presented at a colloquium of the Graduate Institute of the International Studies in Geneva which was organised in collaboration with the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees as a contribution to the 50th anniversaries of the UNHCR and the Geneva Convention relating to the Status of Refugees.283pp.
