Description : This study of the transformation of the relationship between doctors and patients from the mid-Sixties to the mid-Seventies has acquired the status of a minor classic. In this paperback edition the author has added an afterword on patient autonomy that encompasses some more recent changes in the practice of medicine and the evolving field loosely, but inexactly, characterized as bioethics. He has left intact his portrayal of the earlier, epochal changes that are the subject of the book.
Description : Transnational families have become a hot topic in migration studies, family sociology and transnational family research. The focus of this literature tend to be working-age migrants and their children in the country of origin. In contrast, older members of transnational families have only sporadically received academic attention. Consequently, rather little is known about the experiences of older people within transnational family contexts as well as about the scope and determinants of their cross-border family ties and practices. Exploring the case of older Peruvians, ‘Aging within Transnational Families’ is one of the first books to provide a multi-method approach to studying aging across borders. It analyzes the complex dynamics of transnational intergenerational solidarity by scrutinizing the willingness and creativity of older Peruvians to support their children and grandchildren across large geographic distances and national boundaries. The book explores the prevalence and structuring features of family-related transnational practices against the backdrop of different migration regimes and shows how policies affect transnational family configurations and the role of older people within them.
Description : Book Description Inspired by a series of visions given by the Holy Spirit, Dr. Bailey examines the pre-existence, birth and early years, ministry, crucifixion, and resurrection of Christ as seen in the four gospels. Throughout this work runs the sense of awesome love of the Father in Heaven for His only Son, who took upon Himself the form of a man, fully obeying the will of His Father, even unto the death of the cross. You will be encouraged as you see the fervency with which Christ lived so that we might have abundant life by living according to the pattern He set before us in His own life upon this earth.
