African local knowledge and livestock health - Diseases and treatments in South Africa (Paperback): William Beinart, Karen Brown African local knowledge and livestock health - Diseases and treatments in South Africa (Paperback)

R176 R146 Discovery Miles 1 460 Save R30 (17%) Ships in 5 - 10 working days

Understanding local knowledge has become a central academic project among those interested in Africa and developing countries. In South Africa, land reform is gathering pace and African people hold an increasing proportion of the livestock in the country. Animal health has become a central issue for rural development. Yet African veterinary medical knowledge remains largely unrecorded. This book seeks to fill that gap. This book captures for the first time the diversity, as well as the limits, of a major sphere of local knowledge. Beinart and Brown argue that African approaches to animal health rest largely in environmental and nutritional explanations. They explore the widespread use of plants as well as biomedicines for healing. While rural populations remain concerned about supernatural threats, and many men think that women can harm their cattle, the authors challenge current ideas on the modernisation of witchcraft. They examine more ambient forms of supernatural danger expressed in little-known concepts such as mohato and umkhondo. They take the reader into the homesteads and kraals of rural black South Africans and engage with a key rural concern - vividly reporting the ideas of livestock owners. This is groundbreaking research which will have important implications for analyses of local knowledge more generally as well as effective state interventions and animal treatments in South Africa.

The Art and Science of Making Up Your Mind (Paperback): Rex V. Brown The Art and Science of Making Up Your Mind (Paperback)
Rex V. Brown; Edited by Jonathan Baron, Karen Brown
R1,077 Discovery Miles 10 770 Ships in 10 - 15 working days

The Art and Science of Making Up Your Mind presents basic decision-making principles and tools to help the reader respond efficiently and wisely to everyday dilemmas. Although most decisions are made informally (whether intuitively without deliberate thought, or based on careful reflection), over the centuries people have tried to develop systematic, scientific and structured ways in which to make decisions. Using qualitative counterparts to quantitative models, Rex Brown takes the reader through the basics, like 'what is a decision' and then considers a wide variety of real-life decisions, explaining how the best judgments can be made using logical principles. Combining multiple evaluations of the same judgment ("hybrid judgment") and exploring innovative analytical concepts (such as "ideal judgment"), this book explores and analyzes the skills needed to master the basics of non-mathematical decision making, and what should be done, using real world illustrations of decision methods. The book is an ideal companion for students of Thinking, Reasoning and Decision-Making, and also for anyone wanting to understand how to make better judgments in their everyday lives.

Resveratrol and Health - 2nd International Conference on Resveratrol and Health, Volume 1290 (Paperback): Karen Brown, Ole Vang Resveratrol and Health - 2nd International Conference on Resveratrol and Health, Volume 1290 (Paperback)

Resveratrol (3,5,4'-trihydroxy-trans-stilbene) is a phenol phytoalexin derived from grapes, berries, and other plants possessing a spectrum of pharmacologic properties. Resveratrol has been shown to modulate LDL levels, a major risk factor for cardiovascular disease, to interfere with or inhibit oncogenesis and tumor proliferation in in vivo animal cancer models and in human tumor cells in vitro , to significantly extend the lifespan of the yeast Saccharomyces cerevisiae , Caenorhabditis elegans and the fruit fly Drosophila melanogaster , and to produce wide-ranging benefits in animal models of obsesity and diabetes.Resveratrol has gained mainstream attention as the red wine pill, with widespread claims made of human health benefits that have outpaced the existing evidence. Over the past few years, many clinical trials have been conducted to evaluate the health effects of resveratrol in humans, in the treatment of cancer, cardiovascular disease, obesity, diabetes, osteopenia and osteoporosis, and others. Considerable work is also underway exploring the optimization of resveratrol delivery and bioavailability in nutraceutical and pharmaceutical paradigms.

Mad Dogs and Meerkats - A History of Resurgent Rabies in Southern Africa (Paperback): Karen Brown Mad Dogs and Meerkats - A History of Resurgent Rabies in Southern Africa (Paperback)
Karen Brown
R639 R589 Discovery Miles 5 890 Save R50 (8%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

Through the ages, rabies has exemplified the danger of diseases that transfer from wild animals to humans and their domestic stock. In South Africa, rabies has been on the rise since the latter part of the twentieth century despite the availability of postexposure vaccines and regular inoculation campaigns for dogs. In Mad Dogs and Meerkats: A History of Resurgent Rabies in Southern Africa, Karen Brown links the increase of rabies to the HIV/AIDS epidemic. Her study shows that the most afflicted regions of South Africa have seen a dangerous rise in feral dog populations as people lack the education, means, or will to care for their pets or take them to inoculation centers. Most victims are poor black children. Ineffective disease control, which in part depends on management policies in neighboring states and the diminished medical and veterinary infrastructures in Zimbabwe, has exacerbated the problem. This highly readable book is the first study of rabies in Africa, tracing its history in South Africa and neighboring states from 1800 to the present and showing how environmental and economic changes brought about by European colonialism and global trade have had long-term effects. Mad Dogs and Meerkats is recommended for public health policy makers and anyone interested in human-animal relations and how societies and governments have reacted to one of the world's most feared diseases.

R628 R561 Discovery Miles 5 610 Save R67 (11%) Ships in 10 - 15 working days

"Healing the Herds: Disease, Livestock Economies, and the Globalization of Veterinary Medicine" offers a new and exciting
comparative approach to the complex interrelationships of microbes, markets, and medicine in the global economy. It draws upon fourteen case studies from the Americas, western Europe, and the European and Japanese colonies to illustrate how the rapid growth of the international trade in animals through the nineteenth century engendered the spread of infectious diseases, sometimes with devastating consequences for indigenous pastoral societies.
At different times and across much of the globe, livestock epidemics have challenged social order and provoked state interventions, which were sometimes opposed by pastoralists. The intensification of agriculture has transformed environments, with consequences for animal and human health. But the last two centuries have also witnessed major changes in the way societies have conceptualized diseases and sought to control them. The rise of germ theories and the discovery of vaccines against some infections made it possible to move beyond the blunt tools of animal culls and restrictive quarantines of the past. Nevertheless, these older methods have remained important to strategies of control and prevention, as demonstrated during the recent outbreak of foot and mouth disease in Britain in 2001.
From the late nineteenth century, advances in veterinary technologies afforded veterinary scientists a new professional status and allowed them to wield greater political influence. In the European and Japanese colonies, state support for biomedical veterinary science often led to coercive policies for managing the livestock economies of the colonized peoples. In western Europe and North America, public responses to veterinary interventions were often unenthusiastic and reflected a latent distrust of outside interference and state regulation. Politics, economics, and science inform these essays on the history of animal diseases and the expansion in veterinary medicine.

As a child growing up by the sea, Martha Mary endured her parents divorce, survived a tragedy that robbed her and her younger sister of their innocence, and she saw ghosts. Now a young adult, she escapes to a gorgeous inland town to study photography and to distance herself from that painful past and from her secret ability. There she impresses fellow students with her haunting images of abandoned landscapes, falls into a passionate love affair with a manipulative professor, and becomes entangled in the case of a young woman who has disappeared, when one Indian summer afternoon the missing woman appears beneath Martha's apartment window, wearing a down coat, her hair flecked with ice. Will Martha's gifts leave her terrifyingly alone, or will they lead her to a vital human connection? With nods to Shirley Jackson and Daphne du Maurier, Karen Brown's The Clairvoyants spins an eerie tale, one that thrums with the longings of imperfect people, living and dead, who want to be seen and loved.

This book is the winner of the Grace Paley Prize in short fiction. In ""Pins and Needles"", Karen Brown explores love and loss between mother and child, husband and wife, close friends, and virtual strangers. In many of these stories, Brown shows how love emerges as infidelity - incongruous and disruptive, threatening the stability of daily life. In ""She Fell to Her Knees,"" Nell inherits the neglected house in which her mother died years before, and begins an affair with the neighbor. The narrator of ""Apparitions,"" who has recently returned the blind grandson she was raising to the care of his mother, invites a confused young man into her home. In ""The Ropewalk,"" a bartender haunted by her abandonment of her own child aids a customer in a struggle for custody of her daughters. A pregnant teenager in ""Unction"" comes to accept the reality of her situation while working a summer job counting parts in a bookbinding machine shop. Annie, the young mother with a tragic past in ""Pins and Needles,"" leaves her infant daughter to go on an errand in a snowstorm, and picks up a boy she doesn't know. What remains a constant in these stories is the tangible presence of the natural world. Each story moves toward the moment in which its characters, navigating loss, learn acceptance. Like the single mother in ""Destiny,"" they see their lives happen - ""all around, just then, forever.

Winner of the Prairie Schooner Book Prize in Fiction, Karen Brown's "Little Sinners, and Other Stories" features a sad, strange mosaic of women and men grappling with the loss and pain of everyday existence, people inhabiting a suburban landscape haunted by ghosts: a mother who leaps from a ridge, a mistress found at the bottom of the Connecticut River, a father who dresses in a pale blue-custom suit--and disappears. The dead leave behind postcards, houses, bottles of sherry, bones. They become local legends, their stories part of the characters' own: an expectant mother in an isolated cottage on Long Island Sound uncovers an unsettling secret in her backyard; a troubled housewife is lured to a dinner party by a teenage girl whose mother has vanished under mysterious circumstances; a woman and her lover swim the pools of their neighborhood under cover of darkness; a young heiress struggles with mortality and the abandonments in her past.

These stories capture the domestic world in all its blighted promise--a world where women's roles in housekeeping, marriage, childbirth, and sex have been all too well defined, and where the characters fashion, recklessly and passionately, their own methods of escape.
