Sleep Medicine by Michael S. Aldrich (£20.50)Publisher: Oxford & New York: Oxford University Press — 1999Binding: Hardback First Edition. [ISBN: 0195129571]Condition: Near Fine. Description: Number 53 in the series. Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Graphs; Tables;

From the cover: “This book provides accurate concise information concerning the evaluation and the treatment of patients with sleep problems. Because management of sleep disorders requires an understanding of sleep itself, the first portion discribes aspects of normal sleep. The remainder of the book follows an approach based on the clinical method, in which the chief complaints (the symptoms and the signs) and the psychosocial and the medical background of the individual are used, in conjunction with an understanding of the neurobiological and psychological basis of sleep disorders, to formulate a clinical assessment.

The results of polysomnographic studies and other laboratory tests supplement and redefine clinical information and assist with consideration of treatment options.”

The Body In Question by Jonathan Miller (£14.00)Publisher: Book Club Associates — 1980Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the edges of the dust wrapper. Leans a little. Description: Illustrated by way of: Black & White Photographs; Colour Photographs; Black & White Drawings; Diagrams;

From the cover: “Jonathan Miller, co-author and a star of the world-famous revue Beyond the Fringe, director of films, plays and, most recently, of operas, qualified as a medical doctor in 1959 and has held a research fellowship in the history of medicine at University College, London. In his remarkable new book, as in the 13-part B. B. C. television series with which it is linked, Dr Miller considers the functioning of the body as a subject of private experience. He explores our attitudes towards the body, our astonishing ignorance about certain parts of it and inability to read its signals.

We are mystified to experience pain in internal organs like the heart or the liver when neither the quality nor the location of the sensation gives a coherent indication of what is going wrong. And to complicate matters we feel the pain in some spot other than the seat of the mischief. But pain, he says, is not the only thing that prompts a person to go through the elaborate social process of ‘falling ill’. It might be finding something — not intrinsically painful, but alarming — like a lump in the breast, or embarrassing, like a drooping eyelid, or inhibiting to efficiency like a tremor which prompts the decision. At some point the discomfort, alarm, embarrassment or inconvenience begins to obstruct the flow of ordinary life and ‘falling ill’ is the choice we make as a result of feeling unacceptably odd.

Dr Miller considers the varieties of pathological experience and the physical foundations of disease, the types of individuals man has historically attributed with the power of healing and the assumptions of modern medical diagnosis by which a doctor may translate a patient’s account of his ‘dis-ease’ into the scientific principles of disease. His explanations are so lucid, so wide-ranging and so whole-heartedly entertaining it is often hard to believe one is reading about the facts of one’s own body and what can go wrong with it. His use of metaphor and suggestive models, particularly when tracing the historical development of certain leading ideas in human physiology, is highly stimulating. Above all, there is the keen originality and sheer enthusiasm of Dr Miller’s approach to his subject which makes The Body in Question such an outstanding book.”

Structure and Function of Cells: A Text for Students in Medicine and Science by Colin R. Hopkins (£12.50)Publisher: W. B. Saunders Company — 1978Binding: Paperback [ISBN: 0721647758]Condition: Very Good.Description: From the author’s preface: “The book is intended primarily for students who have a background of school biology and who are taking concurrent courses in biochemistry and physiology. As a brief, contemporary assessment of the field, it should also provide a useful basis for later courses in pharmacology, histopathology, immunology and experimental medicine in general. However, although the approach is clearly directed at the eukaryotic system as typified by the cells of mammalian tissues, it will be read without difficulty by students in life science who lack a strong medical bias. It is with these students in mind that a glossary has been included.”Notes: Size: 9¾" x 7". [XIII] 266 pages.

From the cover: “Shotokan Karate is one of the most widely practised styles of karate in the world.

Topics include: fundamental principles and philosophy; main striking, blocking and kicking techniques; detailed instructions of moves with descriptions of the most common mistakes; flexibility training and the physiology of stretching, and finally provides an insight into the mysterious art of Kyusho Jutsu.”

Surely, you might reason, the whole of a course entitled Human Biology and Health is bound to concern the human condition. You would be right to think along such lines, but what is different in this case is that, perhaps more than the earlier books, Book 4 is intended to stimulate your thinking about what is peculiar about human biology and behaviour as compared to that of other species.”Notes: Size: 10" x 8".

Practical Nursing and Anatomy for Pupil Nurses by Jane Forrest (£9.50)Publisher: Edward Arnold — 1968Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. Condition: Very Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with wear and loss at the spine ends and corners, several short closed tears.Description: 1st Reprint. [First: 1966] From the flap: “The aim of this book is to provide a good foundation of basic facts which will guide the pupil and enrolled nurse to a wider knowledge and understanding of the care of the patient. Anatomy and Physiology is not treated as a separate, rather dull subject, but is shown to be closely allied to the diseases and treatments which the nurse encounters daily on the wards. The information contained in the book is presented as simply as possible with explanations of technical terminology given where necessary. A large number of cross references are given as a further aid to study. Nurses should be encouraged to get into the habit of using them, since they establish links which connect one fact with another until a more complete picture of the subject is obtained. “Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5¾".

Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with fraying at the head of the spine and a couple short, closed, tears. Dust wrapper tanned on the reverse. Edges of the text block spotted. Offset to the blanks and endpapers.Description: Reprint. Illustrated with black and white photographs. From the cover: “THIS introduction to the study of the senses of animals is aimed at senior pupils in the schools and university students, and it will also be of great interest and value to field-naturalists, particularly those who incline more towards zoology than towards botany. The book is divided into two sections. The first deals with animal senses in a general way, and also with those observations in the field that can show how the creatures concerned use their senses under differing conditions. The second section describes how the various senses work and also deals with their nervous structures and physiology. The authors have endeavoured to keep technicalities down to a reasonable minimum, believing as they do that too much jargon can confuse rather than assist the student.”Notes: Size: 8¾" x 5½".

The Sixth Man: A Startling Investigation of the Spread of Homosexuality in America by Jess Stearn (£9.50)Publisher: Doubleday & Co. — 1961Binding: Hardback in a Dust Wrapper. First Edition. Condition: Good — in Good Dust Wrapper. Unlaminated dust wrapper a little edgeworn and faded with short tears at the spine ends. Leans. Edges of the textblock heavily spotted. Boards somewhat dust-stained. Tanning to the blanks and pastedowns. Text complete, clean and tight.Description: From the cover: “According to police records and the statistics compiled by many health officials and doctors — and from surveys by homosexual groups — every sixth man in America today is a homosexual. This startling fact is the subject of an eye-opening and revealing study and one which is based on exhaustive research. It shows how the sixth man operates in present-day America, how he makes his contacts, and how he is often trapped by blackmailers. Jess Stearn spent months talking to homosexuals, bisexuals, lesbians, social workers, and police officers, and in THE SIXTH MAN he shows how homosexuality has spread through such professions as modelling, designing, interior decoration, art, music, the theatre, films, and even in general business. It describes homosexual weddings, the special ways in which homosexuals communicate, and gives an account of the confusing life of the bisexual. There is a chapter on lesbians, and there are several chapters which explain the homosexual from a psychological and physiological point of view.

The author takes up the problem of the aging homosexual and describes the large homosexual club which flourishes openly in New York City. And, of course, he distinguishes the different kinds of homosexuals, from the gay boys who love to appear in “drag” to the sedate businessmen who keep their personal lives to themselves, and the male movie stars who are infinitely discreet. THE SIXTH MAN is a serious and authoritative book about a very real problem which confronts America and one which we cannot afford to ignore.”
