    Lives at Risk: Single-Payer National Health Insurance Around the World [John C. Goodman - Gerald L. Musgrave - Devon M. Herrick] (Tapa Blanda)

Herrick- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Rowman & Littlefield Publishers- ISBN-13: 9780742541528- Páginas: 272- Dimensiones: 22.76cm. x 15.39cm. x 2.08cm.- Peso: 0.45 kg.- Descripción:Virtually everyone agrees that our health care system needs reform. But what kind of reform? Some want a return to the system that prevailed in the 1950s. Others would like to see the adaptation of the government-run systems prevalent in other countries. The latter, national health insurance or single-payer health insurance, appears to be gaining ground in the United States. Before Americans find themselves participating in a health care system that has failed in every country it was adopted, we should be asking ourselves whether such a system is effective and efficient.In Lives at Risk, the authors examine the critical failures of national health insurance systems without focusing on minor blemishes or easily correctable problems. In doing so, the purpose is to identify the problems common to all countries with national health insurance and to explain why these problems emerge. Most national health care systems are in a state of sustained internal crisis as costs rise and the stated goals of universal access and quality care are not met. In almost all cases, the reason is the same: the politics of medicine. The problems of government-run health care systems flow inexorably from the fact that they are government-run rather than market driven...

    Transnational Tortillas: Race, Gender, and Shop-Floor Politics in Mexico and the United States [Carolina Bank Muñoz] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Carolina Bank Muñoz- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: ILR Press- ISBN-13: 9780801474224- Páginas: 216- Dimensiones: 22.71cm. x 16.05cm. x 1.30cm.- Peso: 0.30 kg.- Descripción:This book looks at the flip side of globalization: How does a company from the Global South behave differently when it also produces in the Global North? A Mexican tortilla company, "Tortimundo," has two production facilities within a hundred miles of each other, but on different sides of the U.S.-Mexico border. The workers at the two factories produce the same product with the same technology, but have significantly different work realities. This "global factory" gives Carolina Bank Muñoz an ideal opportunity to reveal how management regimes and company policy on each side of the border apply different strategies to exploit their respective workforces' vulnerabilities.The author's in-depth ethnographic fieldwork shows that the U.S. factory is characterized by an "immigration regime" and the Mexican factory by a "gender regime." In the California factory, managers use state policy and laws related to immigration status to pit documented and undocumented workers against each other. Undocumented workers are subject to harsher punishment, night-shift work, and lower pay. In the Baja California factory, managers sexually harass women―who make up most of the workforce―and create divisions between light- and dark-skinned women, forcing them to compete for managerial attention, which they understand equates with job security. In describing and analyzing the differences in working conditions between the two plants, Bank Muñoz provides important new insights into how, in a globalized economy, managerial strategies for labor control are determined by the interaction of state policies and labor market conditions with race, gender, and class at the point of production...

With works such as V for Vendetta,The Watchmen and From Hell, Alan has repeatedly staked out new territory, attracting literary plaudits and a mainstream audience far removed from his underground origins. His place in popular culture is now such that major Hollywood players vie to adapt his books for cinema, regardless of his contempt for their attempts. Yet Moore's journey from the hippie Arts Labs of the 1970s to the bestseller lists was far from preordained. A principled eccentric, who has lived his whole life in one English town, he has been embroiled in fierce feuds with some of the entertainment industry's biggest corporations. Just when he could have made millions ploughing a golden rut he turned instead to performance art, writing erotica, and the occult. Now, as Alan Moore hits sixty, it's time to go in search of this extraordinary gentleman, and follow the peculiar path taken by a writer quite unlike any other...

    The Uprising: On Poetry and Finance (Semiotext(e) / Intervention Series) [Franco "Bifo" Berardi] (Tapa Blanda)

    - Autor: Franco "Bifo" Berardi- Idioma: Ingles- Formato: Papel -Tapa Blanda- Editorial: Semiotext(e)- ISBN-13: 9781584351122- Páginas: 176- Dimensiones: 17.78cm. x 11.43cm. x 1.27cm.- Peso: 0.17 kg.- Descripción: The Uprising is an Autonomist manifesto for today's precarious times, and a rallying cry in the face of the catastrophic and irreversible crisis that neoliberalism and the financial sphere have established over the globe. In his newest book, Franco "Bifo" Berardi argues that the notion of economic recovery is complete mythology. The coming years will inevitably see new surges of protest and violence, but the old models of resistance no longer apply. Society can either stick with the prescriptions and "rescues" that the economic and financial sectors have demanded at the expense of social happiness, culture, and the public good; or it can formulate an alternative. For Berardi, this alternative lies in understanding the current crisis as something more fundamental than an economic crisis: it is a crisis of the social imagination, and demands a new language by which to address it.This is a manifesto against the idea of growth, and against the concept of debt, the financial sector's two primary linguistic means of manipulating society. It is a call for exhaustion, and for resistance to the cult of energy on which today's economic free-floating market depends. To this end, Berardi introduces an unexpected linguistic political weapon -- poetry: poetry as the insolvency of language, as the sensuous birth of meaning and desire, as that which cannot be reduced to information and exchanged like currency. If the protests now stirring about the world are to take shape and direction, then the revolution will be neither peaceful nor violent -- it will be linguistic, or will not be at all...

We've long blamed stress, trauma, and brain-chemistry imbalances. But a new theory is quietly achieving critical mass. In INFECTIOUS MADNESS, award-winning science writer Harriet Washington reveals that schizophrenia, obsessive-compulsive disorder, Alzheimer's, and anorexia also may be caused by bacteria, parasites, or viruses. Weaving together cutting-edge research and case studies, INFECTIOUS MADNESS shows how strep throat can trigger rapid-onset OCD in a formerly healthy teen and how contact with cat litter elevates the risk of schizophrenia. Featuring a new afterword by the author, and rich in science, medical mysteries, cultural nuance, and evidence-based recommendations, INFECTIOUS MADNESS pulls back the curtain on a new paradigm with profound implications for us all...

He runs from the back of the store, stumbles and hits his head, breaking his glasses. His father, Julius Menachem Gold, lies dying, and the killer is gone. Lester gets a brief glimpse of what becomes the sole clue: the killer is wearing an Orioles cap. Lester's mother, Minnie, whose parents survived the Holocaust, Lester's best friend, Santo Bassani, a Trenton High sophomore, and Trenton cop Bertram Randolph all want Lester to do the right thing. Suspicion lands on a Black radical, Salim Johnson, who owns a head shop, Uhuru, and is a leader in the Black community. Lester is drawn into signing a statement that implicates Salim, who is tried, convicted and sent to Death Row. Lester graduates from college, and goes off to Columbia to study journalism as Salim languishes in prison. But events trigger seeds of doubt in Lester's mind about Salim's guilt, and when those doubts flourish, he is drawn back to Trenton as a young reporter in order to fight to exonerate Salim. He is haunted by guilt that is complicated by a love for Salim's sister, Naima. The journey Lester must undergo to discover the true killer forces him to question his deepest allegiances and his faith in his abiding love for the father who treated every person with dignity and respect...
