Fungal Disease in Britain and the United States 1850-2000: Mycoses and Modernity (Science, Technology and Medicine in Modern History)

by A. Homei and M. Worboys

This book is open access under a CC BY license. The grand narrative of twentieth-century medicine is the conquering of acute infectious diseases and the rise in chronic, degenerative diseases. The history of fungal infections does not fit this picture; indeed, it runs against it - this book charts the path of fungal infections from the mid nineteenth century to the dawn of the twenty-first century, both in Britain and the United States. It examines how fungal infections became more prevalent and serious over the century, a rise that was linked to the increased incidence of chronic diseases and to social, technological and medical 'progress'. In 1900, conditions such as ringworm, athlete's foot and thrush were minor, external and mostly chronic conditions  irritating, but mostly self-limit...

Bancarotta!: An Allegory About Central Banking - or - What Ron Paul Didn't Say in 'End the Fed'

by King, M

116 Pages / 220 Illustrations
Why is it that so many people are in so much debt at the same time? Does it seem strange to you that no matter how hard one works, and in spite of all the advances in society, most hard working people cannot escape the treadmill of perpetual debt? Why are so many families losing their homes to foreclosure? Why are so many households dependent upon credit cards to supplement their income? Why does it take TWO working spouses to maintain a middle class lifestyle when it used to take just one? Why are so many young people still living at home with their parents? Why do prices always creep up? Why, in spite of continued economic “growth”, are living standards actually falling?

Killing America: A 100 Year Murder: Forty Historical Wounds That Bill O'Reilly Didn't Write About

by King, M

***50 Page Illustrated Booklet***
By now, most Americans, regardless of their political persuasion, have come to realize that something is not quite right in America. You may not be able to put your finger on it, but you sense it instinctively.

How can you not sense it? For the first time ever, both the majority of the younger and the older generations of America now believe that future generations will not be as prosperous as their parents’ generation was. And that’s only the economic pessimism. On the social and cultural fronts, how many of us can truly say that we are proud are what our society has degenerated to?

Make no mistake; the America we once knew has indeed been murdered. How did we arrive at this point of perpetual debt, perpetual inflation,...

Millennial Me: Generation Y at workplace and beyond

This book is just trying to encapsulate :1) What it is like to be a millennial, 2) The things that probably drive our interactions with the world, 3) How and why we behave the way we do in workplace and beyond,This book is neither intended as a critical evaluation of the generation nor is it a comparison of Gen Y against former generations, I believe such evaluation, of treating over 1.5 billion people as one homogenous sample is bound to lead to stereotyping and biases arising thereof.
