Modern death : how medicine changed the end of life
Warraich, Haider, author
New York : St. Martin's Press, 
How Cells Die -- How Life (and Death) Were Prolonged -- Where Death Lives Now -- How We Learned Not to Resuscitate -- How Death Was Redefined -- When the Heart Stops -- When Death Transcends -- When Guardians Are Burdened -- How Death Is Negotiated -- Why Families Fall -- When Death Is Desired -- When the Plug is Pulled -- #WhenDeathIsShared.
"There is no more universal truth in life than death. No matter who you are, it is certain that one day you will die, but the mechanics and understanding of that experience will differ greatly in today's modern age. Dr. Haider Warraich is a young and brilliant new voice in the conversation about death and dying started by Dr. Sherwin Nuland's classic How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter, and Atul Gawande's recent sensation, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. Dr. Warraich takes a broader look at how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself. The most basic aspects of dying--the whys, wheres, whens, and hows--are almost nothing like what they were mere decades ago. Beyond its ecology, epidemiology, and economics, the very ethos of death has changed. Modern Death, Dr. Warraich's debut book, will explore the rituals and language of dying that have developed in the last century, and how modern technology has not only changed the hows, whens, and wheres of death, but the what of death. Delving into the vast body of research on the evolving nature of death, Modern Death will provide readers with an enriched understanding of how death differs from the past, what our ancestors got right, and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences"--

Drug dealer, MD : how doctors were duped, patients got hooked, and why it's so hard to stop
Lembke, Anna, 1967-
Baltimore : Johns Hopkins University Press, 2016
What is addiction, who's at risk, and how do people recover? -- Prescription drugs as the new gateway to addiction -- Pain is dangerous, difference is psychopathology: The role of illness narratives -- Big Pharma joins Big Medicine: Co-opting medical science to promote pill-taking -- The drug-seeking patient: Malingering versus the hijacked brain -- The professional patient: Illness as identity and a right to be compensated -- The compassionate doctor, the narcissistic injury, and the primitive defense -- Pill mills and the Toyota-ization of medicine -- Addiction, the disease insurance companies still won't pay doctors to treat -- Stopping the cycle of compulsive prescribing.
Three out of four people addicted to heroin probably started on a prescription opioid, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. In the United States alone, 16,000 people die each year as a result of prescription opioid overdose. But perhaps the most frightening aspect of the prescription drug epidemic is that it's built on well-meaning doctors treating patients with real problems. Combining case studies from her own practice with vital statistics drawn from public policy, cultural anthropology, and neuroscience, Dr. Anna Lembke explores the complex relationship between doctors and patients, the science of addiction, and the barriers to successfully addressing drug dependence and addiction. Full of extensive interviews -- with health care providers, pharmacists, social workers, hospital administrators, insurance company executives, journalists, economists, advocates, and patients and their families -- Drug Dealer, MD is for anyone whose life has been touched in some way by addiction to prescription drugs. Dr. Lembke gives voice to the millions of Americans struggling with prescription drugs while singling out the real culprits behind the rise in opioid addiction: cultural narratives that promote pills as quick fixes, pharmaceutical corporations in cahoots with organized medicine, and a new medical bureaucracy focused on the bottom line that favors pills, procedures, and patient satisfaction over wellness.

Zika : from the Brazilian backlands to global threat
Diniz, Debora, author
London : Zed Books, 2017
Timeline -- Map -- Telling the story -- Positive for Zika. Where it all began ; Deciphering an allergy epidemic ; A mysterious illness strikes Bahia -- The first generation of women. The foreigner ; The Northeasterners -- Footprints of the virus. The paralyzing syndrome ; The neuropediatricians from Recife ; The doctor from rural Paraíba -- Patient Zero -- The aftermath -- Implications for women worldwide.
"The Zika virus has devastated lives and countless communities, leaving children across the Americas with severe disabilities as a result of the epidemic. Nowhere has this devastation been more deeply felt than in Alagoas, a small rural province in northeast Brazil. It was here that the most recent outbreak was first identified before spreading across the continent and beyond, with the region's poverty providing fertile ground for the Zika-bearing mosquitoes. In this thought-provoking and poignant work, anthropologist and filmmaker Debora Diniz travels throughout northeastern Brazil, tracing the virus's origin and spread while observing its powerful impact on local communities. By interviewing doctors and listening to expectant mothers in waiting rooms, Diniz paints a vivid picture of the Zika epidemic as experienced by ordinary Brazilians. In this frontline account, Diniz exposes the Brazilian government's complicity in allowing the virus to spread through their inaction and denial, and she champions the efforts of local doctors and mothers who, working together, have made great strides in raising awareness of the virus, and in fighting for the rights of children affected by Zika. The result is a timely and provocative look at an epidemic that continues to threaten many families and communities."--Amazon.com.

Be wise! Be healthy! : morality and citizenship in Canadian public health campaigns
Carstairs, Catherine, 1969- author
Toronto : UBC Press, 2018
"Tell your children the truth" : the Canadian Social Hygiene Council and Venereal Disease Education -- Expanding the mission : publicizing public health -- "Stamp out VD!" The Health League of Canada and Venereal Disease Education in the 1940s and 1950s -- Preventing sickness and absenteeism : the Health League and the workplace -- "The human factory" : nutrition, efficiency, and longevity -- Fighting apathy and ignorance : national campaigns -- "A malicious, mendacious minority" : fighting for water fluoridation -- Circling the drain : the League's slow decline.
"Lose weight. Quit smoking. Exercise more. For well over a century, governments and voluntary groups have run educational campaigns encouraging Canadians to adopt health habits that promise to prolong lives, increase our quality of life, cost the state less, and make us more efficient workers. Be Wise! Be Healthy! explores the history of public health in Canada from the 1920s to the 1970s, a period that saw a massive expansion of education programs through the Health League of Canada. The league, with roots in the moralizing social hygiene movement, urged Canadians to drink pasteurized milk, immunize their children, and avoid extra-marital sex. It advocated fluoridating the water supply and counselled Canadians to see health as a responsibility of citizenship--with doctors and dentists as experts to guide them in that duty. Public health campaigns have reduced preventable deaths. But as Be Wise! Be Healthy! argues, such campaigns can also stigmatize marginalized populations by implying that poor health is due to inadequate self-care, despite clear links between health and external factors such as poverty and trauma. This clear-eyed study demonstrates that while we may well celebrate the successes of public health campaigns, they are not without controversy."--

The Caribbean and the medical imagination, 1764-1834 : slavery, disease and colonial modernity
Senior, Emily, 1978- author
New York, NY : Cambridge University Press, 2018
Communicating disease: literature and medicine in the Atlantic World -- Part I. Health, Geography and Aesthetics -- 1. 'What new forms of death': the poetics of disease and cure -- 2. The diagnostics of description: medical topography and the colonial picturesque -- Part II. Colonial Bodies -- 3. Skin, textuality and colonial feeling -- 4. 'A Seasoned Creole' and 'a Citizen of the World': white West Indians and Atlantic medical knowledge -- Part III. Revolution and Abolition -- 5. The 'intimate union of medicine and magic': Obeah, revolution and colonial modernity -- Afterword: colonial modernities and after abolition.
"During the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries, the Caribbean was known as the 'grave of Europeans'. At the apex of British colonialism in the region between 1764 and 1834, the rapid spread of disease amongst colonist, enslaved and indigenous populations made the Caribbean notorious as one of the deadliest places on earth. Drawing on historical accounts from physicians, surgeons and travellers alongside literary works, Emily Senior traces the cultural impact of such widespread disease and death during the Romantic age of exploration and medical and scientific discovery. Focusing on new fields of knowledge such as dermatology, medical geography and anatomy, Senior shows how literature was crucial to the development and circulation of new medical ideas, and that the Caribbean as the hub of empire played a significant role in the changing disciplines and literary forms associated with the transition to modernity"--

Sharks upon the land : colonialism, indigenous health, and culture in Hawai'i, 1778-1855
Archer, Seth, 1974- author
New York, NY, USA : Cambridge University Press, 2018
"Historian Seth Archer traces the cultural impact of disease and health problems in the Hawaiian Islands from the arrival of Europeans to 1855. Colonialism in Hawaii began with epidemiological incursions, and Archer argues that health remained the national crisis for more than a century. Introduced diseases resulted in drastically reduced lifespans, crushing infertility and infant mortality, and persistent poor health for generations of Islanders, leaving a deep imprint on Hawaiian culture and national consciousness. Scholars have noted the role of epidemics in the depopulation of Hawaii and broader Oceania, yet few have considered the interplay between colonialism, health, and culture - including Native religion, medicine and ideas about the body, and gender and sexuality. This study emphasizes Islanders' own ideas about, and responses to, disease and other health challenges on the local level. Ultimately, Hawaii provides a case study for health and culture change among indigenous populations across the Americas and the Pacific"--

Dopesick : dealers, doctors, and the drug company that addicted America
Macy, Beth, author
New York : Little, Brown and Company, 2018
Part one: The People v. Purdue. The United States of Amnesia ; Swag 'n' Dash ; Message board memorial ; "The corporation feels no pain" -- Part two: Objects in mirror are closer than they appear. Suburban sprawl ; "Like shooting Jesus" ; FUBI ; "Shit don't stop" -- Part three: "A broken system." Whac-a-mole ; Liminality ; Hope on a spreadsheet ; "Brother, wrong or right" ; Outcasts and inroads -- Epilogue: Soldier's Disease.
Beginning with a single dealer who lands in a small Virginia town and sets about turning high school football stars into heroin overdose statistics, journalist Beth Macy endeavors to answer a grieving mother's question -- why her only son died -- and comes away with a harrowing story of greed and need. From the introduction of OxyContin in 1996, Macy parses how America embraced a medical culture where overtreatment with painkillers became the norm. The unemployed use painkillers both to numb the pain of joblessness and pay their bills, while privileged teens trade pills in cul-de-sacs, and even high school standouts fall prey to prostitution, jail, and death. Through unsparing, yet deeply human portraits of the families and first responders struggling to ameliorate this epidemic, each facet of the crisis comes into focus.

Understanding and managing the complexity of healthcare
Rouse, William B., author
Cambridge, Massachusetts : The MIT Press, 
Introduction -- Complexity of healthcare delivery -- Healthcare costs and their causes -- Impacts of healthcare price controls -- Prevention and wellness -- Chronic disease management -- Equity of care -- Technologies for care -- Data in healthcare -- Methodologies for improvement -- Facilitating change.
Breakthroughs in medical science, innovations in medical technologies, and improvements in clinical practices occur today at an increasingly rapid rate. Yet because of a fragmented healthcare delivery system, many Americans are unable to benefit from these developments. How can we design a system that can provide high-quality, affordable healthcare for everyone? In this book, William Rouse and Nicoleta Serban introduce concepts, principles, models, and methods for understanding, and improving, healthcare delivery. Approaching the topic from the perspectives of engineering and statistics, they argue that understanding healthcare delivery as a complex adaptive system will help us design a system that is more efficient, effective, and equitable. The authors use multilevel simulation models as a quantitative tool for evaluating alternate ways of organizing healthcare delivery. They employ this approach, for example, in their discussions of affordability, a prevention and wellness program, chronic disease management, and primary care accessibility for children in the Medicaid program. They also consider possible benefits from a range of technologies, including electronic health records and telemedicine; data mining as an alternative to randomized trials; conceptual and analytical methodologies that address the complexity of the healthcare system; and how these principles, models, and methods can enable transformational change.--

How to change your mind : what the new science of psychedelics teaches us about consciousness, dying, addiction, depression, and transcendence
Pollan, Michael, author
New York : Penguin Press, 2018
Prologue: A new door -- A renaissance -- Natural history : bemushroomed ; Coda -- History : the first wave. The promise ; The crack-up ; Coda -- Travelogue : journeying underground. Trip one : LSD ; Trip two : psilocybin ; Trip three : 5-MeO-DMT (or, the toad) -- The neuroscience : your brain on psychedelics -- The trip treatment : psychedelics in psychotherapy. One : dying ; Two : addiction ; Three : depression ; Coda : going to meet my default mode network -- Epilogue: In praise of neural diversity.
When Michael Pollan set out to research how LSD and psilocybin (the active ingredient in magic mushrooms) are being used to provide relief to people suffering from difficult-to-treat conditions such as depression, addiction and anxiety, he did not intend to write his most personal book. But upon discovering how these remarkable substances are improving the lives not only of the mentally ill but also of healthy people coming to grips with the challenges of everyday life, he decided to explore the landscape of the mind in the first person as well as the third. Thus began an adventure into various altered states of consciousness, along with a dive deep into both the latest brain science and the thriving underground community of psychedelic therapists. Pollan sifts the historical record to separate the truth about these mysterious drugs from the myths that have surrounded them since the 1960s, when a handful of psychedelic evangelists inadvertently catalyzed a powerful backlash against what was then a promising field of research.
