Description : If only I could have been a daddy's girl I would not of had grown up in that monster's world That monster he came calling for me in his house I was scared as can be Jamae Vandegraph remembers-and wishes she couldn't. She remembers the man long ago who took her to a cold, dark, unfurnished upstairs bedroom equipped with an old wooden tripod with a big camera that rested on its top. She remembers this room because this is where he undressed her and forced her to touch him. She remembers being cold, scared, and alone. Most of all, she remembers closing her eyes and wishing she was anywhere but there. In an autobiographical collection of prose and poetry, Vandegraph reflects on the anger and hurt that accompanied being a victim of sexual abuse as a young girl. In poignant verse that explores the terrifying moments when she was pulled out of her innocence and into the darkness, Vandegraph shares how she was victimized and eventually healed through forgiveness, self-love, and hope for a new future. A Single Tear is a memoir of prose and poems that leads others on a heartbreaking path through childhood sexual abuse and ultimately into the bright light of healing.

Description : 1st Prize, 'New Authored Books' category, Royal Society ofMedicine and Society of Authors Medical Book Awards 2008 “Overall, I am impressed by the up-to date informationcontent and structure provided in Bacteriology of Humans. It istruly an ecological perspective helpful for undergraduate/graduatemajors in microbiology and immunology.” –AmericanSociety for Microbiology, June 2009 "Wilson provides the reader with an up-to-date, comprehensivecensus of the indigenous microorganisms that inhabit the human bodyand in so doing contributes significantly to this rapidly advancingarea of study. The narrative is clearly written; the index isexcellent; there are numerous bibliographic citations. Each chapteris rich with tables, diagrams, color micrographs, and charts… Highly recommended." –Choice Reviews "This comprehensive, yet accessible text... is an excellentand informative reference book… it should be on the shelf ofevery major science and medical library. The content, organization,and presentation make this book a unique resource."–Doody's Book Reviews Until recently, the indigenous microbiota of humans has been arelatively neglected area of microbiology with most attention beingfocused on those microbes that cause disease in humans, rather thanon those that co-exist with us in the disease-free state. However,in the past decade research has shown that not only is theindigenous microbiota involved in protecting humans from exogenouspathogens but it is also involved in our development and nutrition.Consequently, interest has grown substantially among healthprofessionals and scientists in analyzing and understanding thesemicrobial (largely bacterial) communities. This comprehensive, yet accessible text provides an up-to-dateguide to the development, composition and distribution ofindigenous microbial communities of humans. With the aid ofabundant colour figures, diagrams, tables and maps, it establisheslinks between the physicochemical factors prevailing at ananatomical site and the types of microbes to be found there. Thebook includes an introduction to the human-microbe symbiosis aswell as an in-depth look at the main systems and organs of thehuman body that have an indigenous microbiota. Each chapterincludes a list of references for further study. This is an excellent and informative reference book that isuseful to anyone with an interest in microbiology, medicalmicrobiology, microbial ecology, infectious diseases, immunology,human biology, medicine, dentistry, nursing, health sciences,biomedical sciences or pharmacy – it should be on the shelfof every major science and medical library. Hallmark Features: Provides a comprehensive, yet accessible, reference book on thehuman microbiota Lavishly illustrated with colour figures, diagrams, tables andmaps Each chapter provides a list of references to promote furtherstudy Each chapter contains links to key websites Offers an ecological approach that explains why certainorganisms are associated with a particular anatomical site
Description : Explores intervisual case studies in relation to migration, xenophobia, and gender. Affective Images examines both canonical and lesser-known photographs and films that address the struggle against apartheid and the new struggles that came into being in post-apartheid times. Marietta Kesting argues for a way of embodied seeing and complements this with feminist and queer film studies, history of photography, media theory, and cultural studies. Featuring in-depth discussions of photographs, films, and other visual documents, Kesting then situates them in broader historical contexts, such as cultural history and the history of black subjectivity and revolves the images around the intersection of race and gender. In its interdisciplinary approach, this book explores the recurrence of affective images of the past in a different way, including flashbacks, trauma, “white noise,” and the return of the repressed. It draws its materials from photographers, filmmakers, and artists such as Ernest Cole, Simphiwe Nkwali, Terry Kurgan, Thenjiwe Niki Nkosi, Adze Ugah, and the Center for Historical Reenactments. “In its focus on lens-based media, the book not only tackles some of the questions around the visuality of migration and xenophobia, but also does so using the media (photography and film) that are probably the most complicit in the visual witnessing and translation within this field.” — Rory Bester, coeditor of Rise and Fall of Apartheid: Photography and the Bureaucracy of Everyday Life
