Toe sê sy, terwyl sy skuins afkyk na die mat, asof sy met haarself praat: “Vir te lank in my lewe het ek ongedefinieerd geleef. Ek weet nie wie ek is nie.”
Iets of iemand moet die katalisator wees wat ’n mens aan die dink sit oor jouself. Die vrou van Waterkloof was dit vir my, die een wat my oor myself laat wonder en bewus gemaak het: hier binne is ’n mens. Die vraag laat vra het: Wie is ek?
Oorkant jou is gevul met die stories van die uiteenlopende mense wat Juliana Coetzer se pad kruis as psigoterapeut. Deur hul verhale van swaarkry en herstel, neem Juliana die leser op ŉ reis wat eintlik ons almal sŉ is: Die pad van grootword en eienaarskap neem.
Sy vertel hoe sommige kliënte haar inspireer en uitdaag om haar eie vrese te konfronteer, maar ook watter uitwerking dit op terapeute het om aan die wreedheid van die mensdom blootgestel te word. Daar is die families wat uitmekaar geskeur is as gevolg van seksuele misbruik, die man wat sukkel met sy selfbeeld weens afknouery en ook die prostituut Venicia wat ’n tragiese symbool van verwaarlosing word.
Juliana se aardse humorsin maak dat sy egter ook die komiese oomblikke raaksien – totdat die volgende storie oor die menslike toestand jou wind uitslaan.
Departmentalising medicine has produced many specialities. This development is both essential and inevitable if progress is pursued. In the surgical field, at least ten disciplines have developed. Although these disciplines are very different in nature and practice, a large common ground binds them together: this title is about these common basic principles, which should form the core knowledge of all surgeons regardless of speciality. As in the past, the subjects covered in the intermediate examinations of the College of medicine of South Africa and the Universities offering Master in Surgery Degrees (Mmed) are represented. This material covers the principles of managing emergency situations across the different surgical disciplines, including intensive care, infections and trauma.

Across the world, 2 billion people experience menstruation, yet menstruation is seen as a mark of shame. We are told not to discuss it in public, that tampons and sanitary pads should be hidden away, the blood rendered invisible. In many parts of the world, poverty, culture and religion collide causing the taboo around menstruation to have grave consequences. Younger people who menstruate are deterred from going to school, adults from work, infections are left untreated. The shame is universal and the silence a global rule. In It's Only Blood Anna Dahlqvist tells the shocking but always moving stories of why and how people from Sweden to Bangladesh, from the United States to Uganda, are fighting back against the shame.

To be diagnosed with dementia is "like being blindfolded and let loose in a maze". There is no clear treatment to follow, because each case is unique. But once thickets of misunderstanding and misinformation are brushed aside, there are pathways to hope.

The authors of Cultural issues in health and health care deal with the basic principles of transcultural care and focus on training practitioners to be able to put the principles into practice in their own health settings.
As jong seun het Danie Smuts met ’n blikkie agter vee in die veld aangeloop om kuttels te versamel vir ’n konkoksie om maselspasiënte se simptome te verlig. Min het hy toe geweet dat hy eendag die legendariese aanbieder van ’n gewilde Springbok Radio-program sou word waarin die volk kure vir allerlei kwinte en kwale deel.
Toe Boererate – ’n keur van die tradisionele advies wat luisteraars oor die jare vir Smuts se radioprogram ingestuur het – in 1989 verskyn, was dit onmiddellik ’n treffer. Sedertdien het dié besonderse boek uit sirkulasie verdwyn, maar die aanvraag daarvoor nie.
’n Byna vergete era in die Afrikaanse kultuurgeskiedenis word in herinnering geroep deur dié vreemdsoortige en dikwels skreeusnaakse wenke. Die volgende stappe word byvoorbeeld aanbeveel om griep te bekamp:
Maar wees gewaarsku: Dat die griep binne 24 uur sal verdwyn, word gewaarborg, maar jy mag dalk ’n hoofpyn oorhou.
Boererate se oorsprong word teruggevoer na verskillende bronne: waarnemings, eerstehandse ondervinding, mites, godsdiens en selfs toorkuns. Behandeling gaan dikwels gepaard met die uitvoer van komieklike rituele.
Tussen die mediese advies is daar ook handige raad oor sake op die plaaswerf: hoe om ’n troeteldier se vel te laat blink, aartappelsteggies lank vars te hou, van lastige miere ontslae te raak, en nog baie meer.
Boererate bied onontbeerlike pitkos vir geskiedenis-liefhebbers en is ’n nostalgiese terugblik op ’n kosbare stukkie Afrikaner-erfenis.
