Breast Cancer Treatment, Care, Side Effects, and Counseling is the product of a personal journey through breast cancer by one of the authors. While undergoing different modalities of treatment for breast cancer, she and her family felt a huge gap in the available information on cancer treatment and care. All the available information, even as basic as what is cancer, was very medical and scientific. For a person just diagnosed with cancer, medical language is very intimidating and frightening. Also, there was not a single source which provided all the information about cancer, its treatment modalities, and side effects. Our book is thus a compilation of all the information we collected over her one year treatment process. This book is the result of a combined effort of a breast cancer survivor, her spouse who is an academician, medical professionals, counselor, and a wellness expert so as to provide a comprehensive understanding of breast cancer. Medical specialists heal cancer in the body, but the treatment modalities of cancer impact the body, mind and emotions of the patient. Being prepared for the emotional and mental side effects of chemotherapy, radiation and the medications would empower breast cancer patients and their family with an awareness of the disease so as to cope with the treatment better. Knowing is half the battle won, and will remove the fear of the unknown.

This collection analyzes shifting relationships between gender and labour in post-Fordist times. Contingency creates a sexual contract in which attachments to work, mothering, entrepreneurship and investor subjectivity are the new regulatory ideals for women over a range of working arrangements, and across classed and raced dimensions.

This book deals with a very common condition, anemia, which might interest not only the physicians but also other healthcare professionals and researchers dealing with anemic patients.
The objective of this book was to collect and compile up-to-date information from reputable researchers of different countries of the world to disseminate the latest information about the common types of anemia in some specific physiological and pathological conditions including pathophysiology and the use of algorithms as a tool to minimize the laboratory tests and accurate diagnosis of the underlying cause. In total, there are 13 chapters in this book where the authors shared their research findings and real-life experiences in managing their patients with anemia.

Cool Japanese Men: Studying New Masculinities at Cambridge

Japanese men are becoming cool. The suit-and-tie salaryman remodels himself with beauty treatments and ‘cool biz’ fashion. Loyal company soldiers are reborn as cool, attentive fathers. Hip hop dance is as manly as martial arts. Could it even be cool for middle-aged men to idolize teenage girl popstars? This collection of studies from the University of Cambridge provides fascinating insights into the contemporary lives of Japanese men as it looks behind the image of ‘Cool Japan.’ (Series: Japanese Studies / Japanologie, Vol. 6)

Combating Antimicrobial Resistance: A One Health Approach to a Global Threat: Proceedings of a Workshop by Engineering, and Medicine National Academies of Sciences

As of 2017, the emergence and spread of antimicrobial resistance continues unabated around the world, leaving devastating health and economic outcomes in its wake. Those consequences will multiply if collaborative global action is not taken to address the spread of resistance. Major drivers of antimicrobial resistance in humans have been accelerated by inappropriate antimicrobial prescribing in health care practices; the inappropriate use of antimicrobials in livestock; and the promulgation of antibiotic resistance genes in the environment.
To explore the issue of antimicrobial resistance, the Forum of Microbial Threats planned a public workshop. Participants explored issues of antimicrobial resistance through the lens of One Health, which is a collaborative approach of multiple disciplines – working locally, nationally, and globally – for strengthening systems to counter infectious diseases and related issues that threaten human, animal, and environmental health, with an end point of improving global health and achieving gains in development. They also discussed immediate and short-term actions and research needs that will have the greatest effect on reducing antimicrobial resistance, while taking into account the complexities of bridging different sectors and disciplines to address this global threat. This publication summarizes the presentations and discussions from the workshop.
