    Rosamond Rhodes: Medicine and Social Justice: Essays on the Distribution of Health Care

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Review Reviews of the first edition: "This compilation brings a variety of perspectives, national settings, and disciplinary backgrounds to the topic and provides a unique survey of theoretical and applied thinking about the connections between health care and social justice... Physicians and others interested in this field will find this book an engaging introduction to the theoretical and practical challenges pertaining to social justice and health care." --New England Journal of Medicine "Although much work in bioethics has focused on clinical encounters, there has been a current of discussion about questions of social justice for decades-at least since the allocation of access to dialysis was widely understood in the 1960s to be a matter of justice, not of medical judgment. This volume will facilitate heightened awareness and deeper discussion of such issues." --JAMA "Impressively, the editors have chosen an array of essays that explore the philosophical and bioethical foundations of distributive justice; review the current practice of rationing and patients' access to care in a number of different countries; highlight the issues raised by various special needs groups; and then wrestle with some dilemmas in assessing priorities in distributing healthcare... This book is an excellent resource. " --Doody's About the Author Rosamond Rhodes, PhD is Director of Bioethics Education and Professor of Medical Education at Mount Sinai School of Medicine. She is also Professor of Philosophy at The Graduate Center, CUNY, and Professor of Bioethics at Union Graduate College. In her philosophical writing she has discussed the work of Hobbes, Aristotle, Kant, and Rawls, and addressed a broad range of topics in bioethics. Margaret Pabst Battin is Distinguished Professor of Philosophy and Adjunct Professor of Internal Medicine, Division of Medical Ethics, at the University of Utah. She has authored, co-authored, edited, or co-edited some twenty books, among them a study of philosophical issues in suicide; a collection on age-rationing of medical care; a text on professional ethics; and a collection of her essays on end-of-life issues, The Least Worst Death. A second collection of her essays (and fiction) on end-of-life issues, entitled Ending Life, was published in spring 2005 by Oxford University Press. She is the lead author of two multiauthored projects, Drugs and Justice: Seeking a Consistent, Coherent, Comprehensive View (Oxford, 2008) and The Patient as Victim and Vector: Ethics and Infectious Disease (Oxford, 2009). She is currently at work on an historical sourcebook on ethical issues in suicide, a book on world population growth and reproductive rights, and several projects on spinal cord injury. Anita Silvers, Professor and Chair of Philosophy at San Francisco State University, is the recipient of the American Philosophical Association's Quinn Prize and the Chair of the APA Committee on Inclusiveness. She has written extensively on issues of medicine and justice for people with disabilities and chronic illnesses, elderly people, neonates, and other especially vulnerable groups. Her philosophical theory of justice is enriched by experience in advocacy and on the ethics committee of a county hospital that serves these populations.

    Seamus Heaney: Beowulf: A New Verse Translation (Bilingual Edition)

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Amazon.com Review In Beowulf warriors must back up their mead-hall boasts with instant action, monsters abound, and fights are always to the death. The Anglo-Saxon epic, composed between the 7th and 10th centuries, has long been accorded its place in literature, though its hold on our imagination has been less secure. In the introduction to his translation, Seamus Heaney argues that Beowulf 's role as a required text for many English students obscured its mysteries and "mythic potency." Now, thanks to the Irish poet's marvelous recreation (in both senses of the word) under Alfred David's watch, this dark, doom-ridden work gets its day in the sun. There are endless pleasures in Heaney's analysis, but readers should head straight for the poem and then to the prose. (Some will also take advantage of the dual-language edition and do some linguistic teasing out of their own.) The epic's outlines seem simple, depicting Beowulf's three key battles with the scaliest brutes in all of art: Grendel, Grendel's mother (who's in a suitably monstrous snit after her son's dismemberment and death), and then, 50 years later, a gold-hoarding dragon "threatening the night sky / with streamers of fire." Along the way, however, we are treated to flashes back and forward and to a world view in which a thane's allegiance to his lord and to God is absolute. In the first fight, the man from Geatland must travel to Denmark to take on the "shadow-stalker" terrorizing Heorot Hall. Here Beowulf and company set sail: Men climbed eagerly up the gangplank, sand churned in the surf, warriors loaded a cargo of weapons, shining war-gear in the vessel's hold, then heaved out, away with a will in their wood-wreathed ship. Over the waves, with the wind behind her and foam at her neck, she flew like a bird... After a fearsome night victory over march-haunting and heath-marauding Grendel, our high-born hero is suitably strewn with gold and praise, the queen declaring: "Your sway is wide as the wind's home, / as the sea around cliffs." Few will disagree. And remember, Beowulf has two more trials to undergo. Heaney claims that when he began his translation it all too often seemed "like trying to bring down a megalith with a toy hammer." The poem's challenges are many: its strong four-stress line, heavy alliteration, and profusion of kennings could have been daunting. (The sea is, among other things, "the whale-road," the sun is "the world's candle," and Beowulf's third opponent is a "vile sky-winger." When it came to over-the-top compound phrases, the temptations must have been endless, but for the most part, Heaney smiles, he "called a sword a sword.") Yet there are few signs of effort in the poet's Englishing. Heaney varies his lines with ease, offering up stirring dialogue, action, and description while not stinting on the epic's mix of fate and fear. After Grendel's misbegotten mother comes to call, the king's evocation of her haunted home may strike dread into the hearts of men and beasts, but it's a gift to the reader: A few miles from here a frost-stiffened wood waits and keeps watch above a mere; the overhanging bank is a maze of tree-roots mirrored in its surface. At night there, something uncanny happens: the water burns. And the mere bottom has never been sounded by the sons of men. On its bank, the heather-stepper halts: the hart in flight from pursuing hounds will turn to face them with firm-set horns and die in the wood rather than dive beneath its surface. That is no good place. In Heaney's hands, the poem's apparent archaisms and Anglo-Saxon attitudes--its formality, blood-feuds, and insane courage--turn the art of an ancient island nation into world literature. --Kerry Fried --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. From Publishers Weekly When the great monster Grendel comes to Denmark and dashes its warriors' hopes, installing himself in their great hall and eating alive the valiant lords, the hero Beowulf arrives from over the ocean to wrestle the beast. He saves the Danes, who sing of his triumphs, but soon the monster's mother turns up to take him hostage: having killed her, our hero goes home to the land of the Geats, acquires the kingship, and fights to the death an enormous dragon. That's the plot of this narrative poem, composed more than a millennium ago in the Germanic language that gave birth (eventually) to our version of English. Long a thing for professors to gloss, the poem includes battles, aggressive boasts, glorious funerals, frightening creatures and a much-studied alliterative meter; earlier versions in current vernacular have pleased lay readers and helped hard-pressed students. Nobel laureate Heaney has brought forth a finely wrought, controversial (for having won a prize over a children's book) modern English version, one which retains, even recommends, the archaic strengths of its warrior world, where "The Spear-Danes in days gone by/ and the kings who ruled them had courage and greatness." Well-known digressionsAa detailed dirge, the tale-within-a-tale of Hengest, "homesick and helpless" in ancient FrieslandAfind their ways into Heaney's English, which holds to the spirit (not always the letter) of the en face Anglo-Saxon, fusing swift story and seamless description, numinous adjectives and earthy nouns: in one swift scene of difficult swimming, "Shoulder to shoulder, we struggled on/ for five nights, until the long flow/ and pitch of the waves, the perishing cold drove us apart. The deep boiled up/ and its wallowing sent the sea-brutes wild." Heaney's evocative introduction voices his long-felt attraction to the poem's "melancholy fortitude," describing the decades his rendering took and the use he discovered for dialect terms. It extends in dramatic fashion Heaney's long-term archeological delvings, his dig into the origins of his beloved, conflictedAby politics and placeAEnglish language. (Feb.)

    Lynn Beighley: Head First PHP & MySQL

    Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


    Description

    Editorial Reviews Book Description PHP and MySQL enable web developers to take static HTML pages and turn them into full-fledged dynamic, database-driven web sites. Head First PHP & MySQL uses the series' visually rich approach based on neurobiology and learning theory to not only teach both languages so the learning sticks, but teach how to combine them effectively using many real-world examples. About the Author Lynn Beighley is a fiction writer stuck in a technical book writer's body. Upon discovering that technical book writing actually paid real money, she learned to accept and enjoy it. After going back to school to get a Masters in Computer Science, she worked for the acronyms NRL and LANL. Then she discovered Flash, and wrote her first bestseller. A victim of bad timing, she moved to Silicon Valley just before the great crash. She spent several years working for Yahoo! and writing other books and training courses. Finally giving in to her creative writing bent, she moved to the New York area to get an MFA in Creative Writing. Her Head First-style thesis was delivered to a packed room of professors and fellow students. It was extremely well received, and she finished her degree, finished Head First SQL, and can't wait to begin her next book. Lynn loves traveling, cooking, and making up elaborate background stories about complete strangers. She's a little scared of clowns. Michael Morrison is a writer, developer, toy inventor, and author of a variety of books covering topics such as Java, Web scripting, game development, and mobile devices. Some of Michael's notable writing projects include JavaScript Bible, 6th Edition (Wiley, 2006),Teach Yourself HTML and CSS in 24 Hours, 7th Edition (Sams Publishing, 2005), Beginning Mobile Phone Game Programming (Sams Publishing, 2004) and Java Unleashed (Sams Publishing, 1997). Michael is the intructor of several Web-based courses, including DigitalThink's Introduction to Java 2 series, JavaBeans for Programmers series, and Win32 Programming series (www.digitalthink.com). In addition to his primary profession as a writer and technical consultant, Michael is the founder of Stalefish Labs (www.stalefishlabs.com), an entertainment company specializing in games, toys, and interactive media. When not glued to his computer, skateboarding, playing hockey, or watching movies with his wife, Masheed, Michael enjoys hanging out by his koi pond.

The format of the Head First books is unique, engaging and effective. One could consider the Head First series to be comic book like. This is one of the series' great virtues. The interactive layout and thoughtful way illustrations are integrated to text in order to explain 'hard to get concepts' really works.

    I use the series to learn and teach advanced programming topics. All the exciting things about the Heads First series shines through in PHP & MySQL.

    Heads First PHP & MySQL is for beginners. There is little prerequisite knowledge required to get benefit from the book. I have learned from years of teaching and mentoring that beginners learn best when presented with information in a way that is fun and hands on. Heads First PHP & MySQL meets this requirement with no problem.

    The book covers the range of topics that is standard for having a good foundation in programming in general and programming in PHP in particular. After finishing this book the reader will be able to create a data driven web site in PHP, leveraging that special relationship between the PHP programming language and the MySQL database. The reader will know why and how PHP and MySQL go hand in hand.

    The book throws in some extra tidbits. For example it teaches you how to make a data drive Rss Feed. It's a good example that has real world bearing.

    Again, this is a beginners book. I caution 'bosses' that while giving this book to aspiring PHP developers is a good thing to do, you should not think that the book will create production ready coders. Coding in a production environment requires experience that is beyond the scope of this work.


    This being said, I look forward to reading an follow up volume to this work titled, Heads First Really Programming in PHP and MySQL in which the topics of object oriented programming in PHP and implementing the basic software design patterns are explained in a way that only a Heads First book could.

    Heads First PHP and MySQL is a great beginners book, one that should be on the bookshelf of every up and coming PHP developer.

      Richard E. Crandall: Projects in Scientific Computation

      Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


      Description

      Editorial Reviews From the Publisher This interdisciplinary book provides a compendium of projects, together with a large number of example programs for readers to study and explore. The book is designed for advanced undergraduate or graduate students of science, mathematics and engineering who will deal with scientific computation in their future studies and research. It also contains new and useful reference materials for researchers. These projects were collected from research results and computational dilemmas during the author's tenure as Chief Scientist at NeXT Computer, Inc. and from his scientific computation lectures in the Department of Physics at Reed College. The content assumes familiarity with such college topics as calculus, differential equations, and at no known direct competitors, but a paperbound book published by SIAM in 1990, "Scientific Computation on Mathematical Problems and Conjectures," CBMS 60, by Richard Varga from Kent State University, contains intellectual seed for Cran! dall's exposition; it is not a textbook, however. --This text refers to the Paperback edition.

      Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


      Description

      Editorial Reviews From Booklist Although Civil War novels abound, Shaara’s searing trilogy “explores the often overlooked story of the Civil War in the west.” A Blaze of Glory (2012), the best-selling first volume in this series, documented the fiercely bloody Battle of Shiloh, in Tennessee. The second installment details a different—but equally devastating—type of military action. Pushing further southwest, General Grant and the Union forces have driven the beleaguered Confederates to the outskirts of Vicksburg, Mississippi. With no surrender in sight and control of the crucial Mississippi River hanging in the balance, Grant reluctantly opts to lay siege to the city, subjecting both soldiers and civilians to an agonizing combination of starvation, degradation, and barragement. Shaara seamlessly interweaves multiple points of view, as the plot is driven by a stellar cast of real-life and fictional characters coping with the pivotal crisis. --Margaret Flanagan --This text refers to the Hardcover edition. Review Praise for A Chain of Thunder   “[Jeff] Shaara continues to draw powerful novels from the bloody history of the Civil War. . . . The dialogue intrigues. Shaara aptly reveals the main actors: Grant, stoic, driven, not given to micromanagement; Sherman, anxious, high-strung, engaged even when doubting Grant’s strategy. . . . Worth a Civil War buff’s attention.” — Kirkus Reviews   “Searing . . . Shaara seamlessly interweaves multiple points of view, as the plot is driven by a stellar cast of real-life and fictional characters coping with the pivotal crisis. . . . [A] riveting fictional narrative.” — Booklist “Shaara’s historical accuracy is faultless, and he tells a good story. . . . The voices of these people come across to the reader as poignantly as they did 150 years ago.” —Historical Novels Review “The writing is picturesque and vibrant. . . . [an] engrossing tale.” —Bookreporter From the Hardcover edition. See all Editorial Reviews

      NEW YORK TIMES BESTSELLER Continuing the series that began with A Blaze of Glory,  Jeff Shaara returns to chronicle another decisive chapter in America’s long and bloody Civil War. In A Chain of Thunder, the action shifts to the fortress city of Vicksburg, Mississippi. There, in the vaunted “Gibraltar of the Confederacy,” a siege for the ages will cement the reputation of one Union general—and all but seal the fate of the rebel cause.   In May 1863, after months of hard and bitter combat, Union troops under the command of Major General Ulysses S. Grant at long last successfully cross the Mississippi River. They force the remnants of Confederate Lieutenant General John C. Pemberton’s army to retreat to Vicksburg, burning the bridges over the Big Black River in its path. But after sustaining heavy casualties in two failed assaults against the rebels, Union soldiers are losing confidence and morale is low. Grant reluctantly decides to lay siege to the city, trapping soldiers and civilians alike inside an iron ring of Federal entrenchments. Six weeks later, the starving and destitute Southerners finally surrender, yielding command of the Mississippi River to the Union forces on July 4—Independence Day—and marking a crucial turning point in the Civil War.   Drawing on comprehensive research and his own intimate knowledge of the Vicksburg Campaign, Jeff Shaara once again weaves brilliant fiction out of the ragged cloth of historical fact. From the command tents where generals plot strategy to the ruined mansions where beleaguered citizens huddle for safety, this is a panoramic portrait of men and women whose lives are forever altered by the siege. On one side stand the emerging legend Grant, his irascible second William T. Sherman, and the youthful “grunt” Private Fritz Bauer; on the other, the Confederate commanders Pemberton and Joseph Johnston, as well as nineteen-year-old Lucy Spence, a civilian doing her best to survive in the besieged city. By giving voice to their experiences at Vicksburg, A Chain of Thunder vividly evokes a battle whose outcome still reverberates more than 150 years after the cannons fell silent.

      Lisa Darms: The Riot Grrrl Collection

      Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


      Description

      Editorial Reviews Review “Riot grrrl is the gateway drug that girls use to find feminist history. I love love love this book—a snapshot of what riot grrrl was and could be.”— Kathleen Hanna “What an experience–this book shows a movement being born and taking form, and how revolutionary ideas move from hand to hand. The Riot Grrrl Collection is alive with intimacy, passion, anger, and fun.”— Sheila Heti “The materials in this book are more important than ever. Riot grrrl shows us that feminism isn't synonymous with consumer empowerment. Passed person to person, riot grrrl culture advances a true revolution in which ‘girl’ qualities like candor and empathy are no longer trivialized and can re-make the world."— Chris Kraus “ The Riot Grrrl Collection preserves a vital history of feminism that will inspire scholars, artists, and activists alike.”— Ann Cvetkovich “Forget Andy Warhol and everyone being famous for 15 minutes. Because of riot grrrl we have new, exciting political movements every 15 minutes.”— Vaginal Davis "What zine-making taught me about writing: 1. shock yourself with honesty, 2. the truth is messy, 3. be brave like her. I use these riot grrrl skills every single day."— Miranda July About the Author Lisa Darms is Senior Archivist at the Fales Library & Special Collections at New York University, and is founder of the Fales Riot Grrrl Collection. She was a member of the art collective Thin Ice, and was an organizer of the first Ladyfest Festival, held in Olympia, Washington in 2000. Darms has published articles in the American Archivist, Archivaria, Women and Performance Journal , and The Believer .

      For the past two decades, young women (and men) have found their way to feminism through Riot Grrrl. Against the backdrop of the culture wars and before the rise of the Internet or desktop publishing, the zine and music culture of the Riot Grrrl movement empowered young women across the country to speak out against sexism and oppression, creating a powerful new force of liberation and unity within and outside of the women's movement. While feminist bands like Bikini Kill and Bratmobile fought for their place in a male-dominated punk scene, their members and fans developed an extensive DIY network of activism and support. The Riot Grrrl Collection reproduces a sampling of the original zines, posters, and printed matter for the first time since their initial distribution in the 1980s and '90s, and includes an original essay by Johanna Fateman and an introduction by Lisa Darms. Lisa Darms is Senior Archivist at the Fales Library & Special Collections at NYU, and founder of the Fales Riot Grrrl Collection. She holds an MA in History and Archival Management from NYU, an MFA in Photography from the University of Washington, and a BA from the Evergreen State College. Her writing has been published in The Believer , Women & Performance Journal , and Archivaria . Before coming to archives she taught photography, worked as a custom photo printer, and was a member of the collaborative art group Thin Ice. Darms grew up in British Columbia, Canada Johanna Fateman is a writer, musician, record producer, and member of the post-punk band Le Tigre. She, along with Kathleen Hanna and several other key Riot Grrrls, recently donated her zines and early writings to the Fales.

      Description

      Editorial Reviews Review "If you have ever wondered how self-acceptance looks, sounds and feels, this book is for you. If replacing self-reproach with self-nurturing seems like a good idea, but you haven't got a clue, this book is a must read. We all know how to talk the talk of self-acceptance and self-nurturing. Robyn's life tales show us how to walk the walk. Finally, the words to create an inner dialogue that is truly life changing. A major contribution to the subject of how change occurs at the deepest levels."     - Carol Munter & Jane Hirschmann, Overcoming Overeating & When Women Stop Hating Their Bodies "Robyn's work and words are deeply beneficial and instructive to all who feel less than self-loving or caring. You will find shelter and wings in the tender ferocity of these words that offer a sturdy platform of support and wisdom for people who wish to experience true self-love and care." - SARK (Susan Ariel Rainbow Kennedy) author and artist of Succulent Wild Woman, Eat Mangoes Naked, Transformation Soup, Glad No Matter What, etc. From the Back Cover This collection of emotionally uncensored tales spirals back and forth through time, describing her struggles and emerging awareness along the way of that journey. They reveal how she grew an unconditionally loving, fiercely protective inner caregiver (her Mommy-Inside) who helped her to finally end the battering of her virulent inner critic (the Hatchet Lady). This fierce and tender inner caregiver brought simple lessons in radical self-care, self-compassion and self-love that have transformed Robyn's ways of being with her self and with life. These lessons - affirmations and reminders of long forgotten or culturally suppressed truths about the importance of taking the very best care of our own vulnerable selves - are at the center of the tales in Go Only as Fast as Your Slowest Part Feels Safe to Go. They offer practical steps and encouragement for learning to be more gentle and compassionate with our over-stressed selves. The stories and their reminders are likely to touch you deeply. They may, as well, help you to kindle a more kind-hearted relationship with your own self. See all Editorial Reviews

      In this collection of emotionally uncensored tales, the author – a licensed psychologist – shares lessons learned from a life dedicated to healing from the ravages of hyper-self-criticism and super-achievement that plague most of us, particularly women. The tales are teaching stories through which the reader vicariously experiences ways to move from self-reproach to self-nurture and self-acceptance. The lessons of radical self-care, self-compassion and self love in these pages help one to kindle an inner dialog that can be life changing. The stories may open readers to a more kind-hearted relationship with themselves. They repeatedly remind readers to go more slowly, to honor and make safe space to feel all their feelings, to remember that rest is a sacred act and to know that it is possible to compassionately embrace all the ways that they are: ever-evolving, warts and all, bumbling works-in-progress always doing the best they can with the consciousness available to them in the moment.

      Richard Blum: Professional Assembly Language

      Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


      Description

      Editorial Reviews From the Back Cover Professional Assembly Language Every high level language program (such as C and C++) is converted by a compiler into assembly language before it is linked into an executable program. This book shows you how to view the assembly language code generated by the compiler and understand how it is created. With that knowledge you can tweak the assembly language code generated by the compiler or create your own assembly language routines. This code-intensive guide is divided into three sections — basics of the assembly language program development environment, assembly language programming, and advanced assembly language techniques. It shows how to decipher the compiler-generated assembly language code, and how to make functions in your programs faster and more efficient to increase the performance of an application. What you will learn from this book: The benefits of examining the assembly language code generated from your high-level language program How to create stand-alone assembly language programs for the Linux Pentium environment Ways to incorporate advanced functions and libraries in assembly language programs How to incorporate assembly language routines in your C and C++ applications Ways to use Linux system calls in your assembly language programs How to utilize Pentium MMX and SSE functions in your applications About the Author Richard Blum has worked for a large U.S. government organization for more than 15 years. During that time, he has had the opportunity to program utilities in various programming languages: C, C++, Java, and Microsoft VB.NET and C#. With this experience, Rich has often found the benefit of reviewing assembly language code generated by compilers and utilizing assembly language routines to speed up higher-level language programs. Rich has a bachelor of science degree in electrical engineering from Purdue University, where he worked on many assembly language projects. (Of course, this was back in the eight-bit processor days.) He also has a master of science degree in management from Purdue University, specializing in Management Information Systems.

      Cognitive Therapy of Anxiety Disorders: Science and Practice pdf download

      David A. Clark PhD: Cognitive Therapy of Anxiety Disorders: Science and Practice

      Download PDF MOBi EPUB Kindle


      Description

      Editorial Reviews Review "The authors provide students and practitioners with the strong theoretical base that is a sine qua non for effective treatment. They show how cognition links up with multiple other etiological factors in anxiety and hence can serve well as a treatment target and focus. Marvelous, instructive clinical pearls accompany each theoretical point. An excellent chapter on assessment contains all the necessary rating forms needed for patient evaluation and monitoring of outcomes. Treatment techniques are described in depth; the book concludes with outstanding disorder-specific chapters. The definitive text."--Peter P. Roy-Byrne, MD, Professor and Vice Chair, Department of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, University of Washington School of Medicine at Harborview Medical Center   "Exceptional. In this comprehensive and integrative work, Clark and Beck offer their latest insights in treating anxiety disorders and provide specific conceptual frameworks. Clinicians, students, and researchers will find this important work to be of immense value in guiding treatment and research. Included are a wealth of practical assessment and monitoring tools that can be used effectively with clients. The book will also be valuable as a course text in clinical psychology training programs."--Adrian Wells, PhD, Division of Clinical Psychology, University of Manchester, United Kingdom, and Director, Metacognitive Therapy Institute   "The authors' scientific expertise and clinical experience are evident in this well-written, practical book. It is an excellent contribution to the cognitive therapy literature that will enhance the skills of professionals and trainees, irrespective of theoretical orientation. Detailed case examples illustrate the application of cognitive therapy principles and practices for treating each of the anxiety disorders."--Kamila S. White, PhD, Department of Psychology, University of Missouri-Saint Louis   "Clark and Beck have produced a landmark work. Scholarly and clinically rich, the book presents the contemporary status of the cognitive model of anxiety disorders with great clarity. It provides a comprehensive yet easy-to-read summary of the empirical literature and describes concrete clinical techniques for addressing some of the most common psychiatric problems. This book is essential reading for current and future mental health professionals."--Stefan G. Hofmann, PhD, Department of Psychology, Boston University "A valuable resource and reference. Written by two eminent and respected researchers in the field of cognitive psychology, this work is offered to readers as both an updated and reformulated presentation of the cognitive model of anxiety as originally presented by Beck and Emery (1985) and as an evidence-based treatment handbook....Given how thorough, well researched, and applicable the information is, this text will quickly become a classic reference for instructors, graduate students, and clinicians....From the perspective of one who trains predoctoral interns and teaches graduate courses, I think this book would be the textbook of choice for introducing the cognitive conceptualization of anxiety, treatment planning from the cognitive perspective, and application of the cognitive model of anxiety in treatment settings. The authors examine and update the cognitive theory of anxiety and use this as the underpinnings for introducing cognitive techniques for treatment....From a clinician's perspective, this work contains a wealth of useful information. It will become the gold standard for the assessment and treatment of anxiety. It is a work that clinicians will repeatedly turn to when looking for the most relevant information....This book has a niche of its own as a reference of the highest caliber. It is a volume that will withstand the test of time."--PsycCRITIQUES ( PsycCRITIQUES 2011-08-12) "An immense amount of research into the anxiety disorders has been conducted in the last 25 years, leaving the authors with the considerable task of including all the necessary information, a task they achieve with magisterial skill and authority....Will serve as a master text on the overall direction in which this work should be heading."--Healthcare, Counselling, and Psychotherapy Journal ( Healthcare, Counselling, and Psychotherapy Journal 2011-08-12) "David A. Clark has done an outstanding job...over the past four years of reviewing, evaluating, and synthesizing the enormous research and clinical literature on the cognitive perspective toward anxiety....There is no question that this is a practical treatment manual....The last five chapters are really mini treatment manuals for panic disorder, social phobia, GAD, OCD, and PTSD. Plus you'll find rating scales, checklists, structured diaries—almost forty reproducible handouts and forms. In every chapter you will find Clinician Guidelines." Each is a boxed-in few sentences that reinforce key points. They serve as a great way for experienced clinicians to scan through sections of this sizable book and settle in on passages that expand their comprehension. If you are ready to sharpen your clinical skills, you will truly appreciate this book."--Anxieties.com ( Anxieties.com 2011-08-12) "Practicing cognitive therapists (and trainees in particular) will find much to like here. Particularly welcome are the frequent, one-paragraph Clinician Guidelines set apart in boxes throughout the text....The authors also provide a Quick Reference Summary at the end of each chapter in Parts I and II, presenting the high points of interest to the practitioner. Other clinician-friendly features include assessment and monitoring forms, actual interview questions for specific aspects of assessment, and a list of recommended self-help workbooks for patients....Perhaps the most thorough, scholarly, and practical volume on the treatment of anxiety disorders currently available. It is an invaluable addition to the anxiety literature, meeting and exceeding the high standard set by previous works by Dr. Beck and his collaborators. It would behoove all mental health practitioners and clinical researchers to be familiar with its contents."--Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic ( Bulletin of the Menninger Clinic 2012-06-03) About the Author David A.

      Description

      Editorial Reviews From Publishers Weekly This is the heartening rags-to-riches story of Li, who achieved prominence on the international ballet stage. Born in 1961, just before the Cultural Revolution, Li was raised in extreme rural poverty and witnessed Communist brutality, yet he imbibed a reverence for Mao and his programs. In a twist of fate worthy of a fairy tale (or a ballet), Li, at age 11, was selected by delegates from Madame Mao's arts programs to join the Beijing Dance Academy. In 1979, through the largesse of choreographer and artistic director Ben Stevenson, he was selected to spend a summer with the Houston Ballet—the first official exchange of artists between China and America since 1949. Li's visit, with its taste of freedom, made an enormous impression on his perceptions of both ballet and of politics, and once back in China, Li lobbied persistently and shrewdly to be allowed to return to America. Miraculously, he prevailed in getting permission for a one-year return. In an April 1981 spectacle that received national media attention, Li defected in a showdown at the Chinese consulate in Houston. He married fellow dancer Mary McKendry and gained international renown as a principal dancer with the Houston Ballet and later with the Australian Ballet; eventually, he retired from dance to work in finance. Despite Li's tendency toward the cloying and sentimental, his story will appeal to an audience beyond Sinophiles and ballet aficionados—it provides a fascinating glimpse of the history of Chinese-U.S. relations and the dissolution of the Communist ideal in the life of one fortunate individual. 8 pages of b&w photos not seen by PW. Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc. All rights reserved. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title. From School Library Journal Grade 6–9—In 1961, just three years after Mao's disastrous Great Leap Forward, Li Cunxin was born, the sixth son in a family of Chinese peasants who eked out a meager existence on a rural commune. During his childhood he endured unimaginable poverty and hardships and witnessed the shooting of 15 "counter-revolutionaries" by Mao's Red Guards. When chosen to audition for Madame Mao's Beijing Ballet Academy at age 11, ballet became his chance for a good job and enough food for life. Many years of training, two U.S. trips, one premature marriage, and a defection later, Li joined the Houston Ballet as a principal dancer, paving his way to international fame. Although told in a rather bland style—mostly in basic declarative sentences—the information about the country at this time and the danger and angst that accompanied the dancer's decision to defect will be of interest to teens. This Young Reader's Edition of the adult book (Putnam, 2004) gives a much fuller portrait than the author's picture-book version, Dancing to Freedom (Walker, 2008). The black-and-white photos, the abbreviated history, and time line will help students place Li's life story into historical context. With the current interest in all things Chinese, and with the immigration debate in full swing, this is a good choice, both to promote an understanding of Chinese culture and to provoke a discussion about the issues facing today's immigrants.— Nancy Menaldi-Scanlan, LaSalle Academy, Providence, RI Copyright © Reed Business Information, a division of Reed Elsevier Inc.

      At the age of eleven, Li Cunxin was one of the privileged few selected to serve in Chairman Mao’s Cultural Revolution by studying at the Beijing Dance Academy. Having known bitter poverty in his rural China home, ballet would be his family’s best chance for a better future.  From one hardship to another, Cunxin demonstrated perseverance and an appetite for success that led him to be chosen as one of the first two people to leave Mao’s China and go to American to dance on a special cultural exchange. But life in the U.S. was nothing like his communist indoctrination had led him to believe. Ultimately, he defected to the west in a dramatic media storm, and went on to dance with the Houston Ballet for sixteen years. This inspiring story of passion, resilience, and a family’s love captures the harsh reality of life in Mao’s communist China and the exciting world of professional dance. This compelling memoir includes photos documenting Li’s extraordinary life.
