In the United States, the Fourth of July means picnics, parades, and fireworks. But it wasn't always so.
The First Independence Day happened during a time of war. Here's the story.
Pain Management Made Incredibly Easy! is divided into four parts. Part 1 covers the fundamental concepts of pain, including the anatomy and physiology of pain, the experience of pain, and pain assessment. Part 2 covers common types of pain as well as pain specific to AIDS patients, cancer patients, pediatric patients, and elderly patients.
Part 3 discusses managing pain, including pharmacologic and nonpharmacologic approaches to pain management, acute pain management, management of surgical pain, and alternative and complementary therapies. Part 4 concerns patient education about dependency and abuse and lifestyle management. Appendices cover web resources, the IASP classification of chronic pain syndromes, and various pain assessment scales. The book continues the user-friendly approach of the Incredibly Easy! series, using Nurse Joy and friends to make the text entertaining as well as informative.
Not so very long ago it seemed reasonable to assert that the influence of religion on global politics was on the wane.
As the Western world became increasingly secular and the process of globalisation deepened, it seemed inevitable - on the surface at least - that the voice of religion was to be heard softly if it was to be heard at all. This has now changed, and changed perhaps irrevocably. As Jeff Haynes argues in this thought-provoking and important new book, various religious 'actors' are now significantly involved in international relations and have become a crucial influence on policy in a post-Westphalian world.
International Relations and Religion guides the reader through the complex issues at the heart of this topic with clarity and insight. The book starts with a close reading of the many theoretical and analytical concepts - notably Huntington and the clash of civilisations - that have grown up around this area and then concludes with a summary of the issues under discussion and attempts to put into context what it means to live in a world that is increasingly shaped by a whole host of diverse religious groups.

A RIP-ROARING, PULSE-POUNDING FLORIDA PUZZLER... “A ripping good yarn … an exciting tale.” —Publishers Weekly “...
an imaginative plot, some rousing action, a black-hearted villain, a cute kid, some gently ironic humor, and a heroine who's appealing without being perfect.” —Booklist As intricate as a fisherman’s net, Riptide fairly writhes with sinister delights—family secrets, family feuds, lost family fortunes, betrayals, puzzles, sunken treasure… and murder, of course. With a bit of illicit romance and treachery thrown in for seasoning. This rife atmosphere swirls around New york artist Isabel Anders, who’s summoned home to tiny St. Elmo, Florida to deal with an emergency: the aunt who raised her has been brutally—and mysteriously—injured. Isabel arrives to find the family mansion in ruins, her aunt living in a trailer, and, dangerous as a cottonmouth, the lover she left at sixteen just where he used to be. Waiting for her. Except now he’s got a grudge against her, a secret of his own, and some unsavory companions. Just when Isabel’s aunt seems to be getting better (but before she’s able to talk again) she dies just as mysteriously as she was injured. Suspecting murder, Isabel quickly ties her aunt’s death to another. But to find the killer, she has to hack her way through a small-town jungle of intrigue and several generations of interrelated secrets, producing hours of pulse-pounding delight for the confirmed puzzle fan. WHO WILL LIKE IT: Fans of Laura Lippman, Kate Atkinson, intelligent cozies like those by G.M. Malliett, Elizabeth Zelvin, and Gillian Roberts, British puzzlemeisters like the great Dorothy L. Sayers herself, all BBC mysteries, and of course, Michaela Thompson’s own Hurricane Season.
