              Cassiano dal Pozzo, (1588-1657) now celebrated as one of the most important art patrons in Italy of the seven - teenth century, commissioned a number of exquisite studies of birds as part of his famous `Paper Museum'. In 1622 the lawyer and ornithologist Giovanni Pietro Olina use...d these drawings which are now kept in the Royal Library at Windsor Castle, as the basis for the illustrations in his Uccelliera . Pasta for Nightingales combines Cassiano's original artwork with selections from the first English translation of Olina's text. It includes such enchanting insights as the idea that robins were epileptic, or suffered from dizziness, and that the hoopoe overindulged in grapes until it became `dazed and half-drunk.' However it also includes much fascinating early natural history and ornithological observation - as well as the secret recipe for pasta to keep your nightingale happy and encourage it to sing. A unique celebration of the beginnings of ornithology, designed in sympathy with the character of the 17th- century original.

              Understanding Tuberculosis and its Control: Anthropological and Ethnographic Approaches (Hardback)

              Over the last two decades attempts to control the problem of tuberculosis have become increasingly more complex, as countries adopt and adapt to evolving global TB strategies. Significant funding has also increased apace; diagnostic possibilities have evolved; and greater attenti...on is being paid to developing broader health systems. Against this background, this book examines tuberculosis control through an anthropological lens. Drawing on ethnographic case studies from China, India, Nepal, South Africa, Romania, Brazil, Ghana and France, the volume considers: the relationship between global and national policies and their unintended effects; the emergence and impact of introducing new diagnostics; the reliance on and use of statistical numbers for representing tuberculosis and the politics of this; the impact of the disease on health workers as well as patients; the rise of drug resistant forms and issues of attempted control. Together the examples showcase the value of an anthropological understanding to demonstrate the broader bio-political and social dimensions of tuberculosis and attempts to deal with it.

              <![CDATA[Until 1832, when an Act of Parliament began to regulate the use of bodies for anatomy in Britain, public dissection was regularly?and legally?carried out on the bodies of murderers, and a shortage of cadavers gave rise to the infamous murders committed by Burke and Hare ...to supply dissection subjects to Dr. Robert Knox, the anatomist. This book tells the scandalous story of how medical men obtained the corpses upon which they worked before the use of human remains was regulated. Helen MacDonald looks particularly at the activities of British surgeons in nineteenth-century Van Diemen?s Land, a penal colony in which a ready supply of bodies was available. Not only convicted murderers, but also Aborigines and the unfortunate poor who died in hospitals were routinely turned over to the surgeons. This sensitive but searing account shows how abuses happen even within the conventions adopted by civilized societies. It reveals how, from Burke and Hare to today?s televised dissections by German anatomist Dr. Gunther von Hagens, some people?s bodies become other people?s entertainment. ]]>
