The health gap : the challenge of an unequal world / Michael Marmot.

January 20, 2016 - 3:40pm
Title: The health gap : the challenge of an unequal world / Michael Marmot.
Author: Marmot, Michael, 1945-
Call Number: RA418.5.P6 M385 2015
Description: In a Baltimore inner-city neighborhood, a man's life expectancy is 63; in another neighborhood not far away, it's 83. The same 20-year avoidable disparity exists in nearby neighborhoods of cities around the world. In Sierra Leone, one in 21 fifteen-year-old women will die in her fertile years of a maternal-related cause; in Italy, the figure is one in 17,100; but in the United States, which spends more on healthcare than any other country in the world, it is one in 1,800. Why? Dramatic differences in health are not a simple matter of rich and poor; poverty alone doesn't drive ill health--inequality does. Suicide, heart disease, lung disease, obesity, and diabetes are all linked to social disadvantage. In every country, people at relative social disadvantage suffer health disadvantage and shorter lives. Within countries, the higher the social status of individuals, the better their health. Conventional approaches to improving health have emphasized access to technical solutions and changes in the behavior of individuals, but these methods only go so far. What really makes a difference is creating the conditions for people to have control over their lives. Author Marmot emphasizes that the rate of illness of a society as a whole determines how well it functions: the greater the health inequity, the greater the dysfunction. We have the tools and resources to improve levels of health for individuals and societies around the world, and not to do so would be a form of injustice. The Health Gap presents compelling evidence for a radical change in the way we think about health and indeed society, and inspires us to address the societal imbalances in power, money, and resources that work against health equity.--Adapted from book jacket.

January 19, 2016 - 8:40am
Title: Brain over binge : why I was bulimic, why conventional therapy didn't work, and how I recovered for good / Kathryn Hansen.
Author: Hansen, Kathryn, 1982-
Call Number: RC552.B84 H36 2011
Description: "Brain over Binge is different than other eating disorder books, which typically present binge eating and purging as symptoms of complex emotional and psychological problems. Kathryn Hansen, the author of Brain over Binge, disputes this mainstream idea and explains why traditional eating disorder therapy failed her and fails many. Kathryn explains how she came to understand her bulimia in a new way- as a function of her brain, and how she used the power of her own brain to recover - quickly and permanently. Sound theories and research support the ideas in this brave and refreshing new book, which holds promise for helping many who struggle with any form of binge eating." -- from author's website, http://www.brainoverbinge.com.

Rethinking American women's activism / Annelise Orleck.

January 18, 2016 - 1:40pm
Title: Rethinking American women's activism / Annelise Orleck.
Author: Orleck, Annelise.
Call Number: HQ1410 .O75 2015
Description: "In this enthralling narrative, Annelise Orleck chronicles the history of the American women's movement from the nineteenth century to the present. Starting with an incisive introduction that calls for a reconceptualization of American feminist history to encompass multiple streams of women's activism, she weaves the personal with the political, vividly evoking the events and people who participated in our era's most far-reaching social revolutions. In short, thematic chapters, Orleck enables readers to understand the impact of women's activism, and highlights how feminism has flourished through much of the past century within social movements that have too often been treated as completely separate. Showing that women's activism has taken many forms, has intersected with issues of class and race, and has continued during periods of backlash, Rethinking American Women's Activism is a perfect introduction to the subject for anyone interested in women's history and social movements"--
