As a medical educator, neuroscientist, and surgical neurologist, Dr. Lowell E. White Jr. has learned a great deal from his students-most particularly, their varying responses to mathematics, language, pictures, and the written word. Because these responses vary so widely, in "Toward a Healthy Tomorrow, " Dr. White presents his observations of fiction and fact in prose, poetry, and graphics. The prose introduces the subject matter, the poetry addresses personal responsibility for good health, and the graphics encourage thought on the subject of the poem in a conceptual fashion. Each person must come to grips with the prime social issues. They must be cognizant of the individual's role in his or her own health. "Turmoil (The ultimate decision) Progress is: A two-edged sword It guides us Toward and in our life Never waiver in your desire Health in all its aspects.

Health and illness are intensely personal matters. It seems self evident that health is a basic necessity of the "good life," though it is often taken for granted. Illness, on the other hand challenges our sense of security and may introduce acute anxiety into our lives. "Health and Illness in a Changing Society" provides a lively and critical account of the impact of social change on the experience of health and illness. It also examines the different sociological perspectives that have been used to analyze health matters. While some of the ideas developed in the last twenty years remain relevant to social research in health today, many are in need of urgent revision.
Increasing recognition of the impact that globalisation may be having on public health has led to widespread concern about the risks arising from emerging and re-emerging diseases, environmental degradation and demographic change. This book argues that health policy making is being affected by globalisation and that these effects are, in turn, contributing to the kind of global health issues being faced today. The book explores how the actors, context, processes and content of health policy are changing as a result of globalisation, raising concerns about growing differences in who can influence health policy, what priorities are set, what interventions are deemed appropriate and ultimately who enjoys good and bad health. Bringing together a distinguished, international group of contributors, this book covers a comprehensive range of topics and geographic regions and will be invaluable for all those interested in health, social and public policy and globalisation.
In Goodness and Justice, Joseph Mendola develops a unified moral theory that defends the hedonism of classical utilitarianism, while evading utilitarianism's familiar difficulties by adopting two modifications. His theory incorporates a developed form of consequentialism. When, as is common, someone is engaged in conflicting group acts, it requires that one perform one's role in that group act that is most beneficent. The theory also holds that overall value is distribution-sensitive, ceding maximum weight to the well-being of the worst-off sections of sentient lives. It is properly congruent with commonsense intuition and required by the true metaphysics of value, by the unconstituted natural good found in our world.
