"Mary Guinan broke through many gender barriers to have an exciting and successful career in public health. After completing medical school at Johns Hopkins (she was one of ten women in a class of 110), she spent five months in India working on smallpox, before becoming an STD expert and an instrumental part of the team that uncovered the AIDS epidemic. (She was even featured in the book and movie And the Band Played On.) Dr. Guinan was the first woman to serve as chief scientific advisor for the CDC. Her career over the next several years at the CDC involved AIDS research and education and culminated in her becoming Nevada's first chief public health officer and the founding Dean of the UNLV School of Public Health. In Adventures of a Female Medical Detective, Guinan writes twelve stories about her career at the CDC as a medical detective, providing the unique perspective of being a woman at a time when very few women worked in this field. Throughout the book, Guinan investigates fascinating diseases including smallpox, AIDS, STDs, and listeria. Her adventures in medical forensics are told within the context of the larger public health concerns of the time. She focuses on methods used to find solutions to problems. This first-hand account is written with the general reader in mind; the stories are short, engaging, and informative. The manuscript reviewer, Dr. Joel Breman, describes Mary's work as a collection of "poignant and often hilarious tales ... from a front-line, public health heroine." In addition to its target market of general readers and public health practitioners, this book will be an enthralling addition to undergraduate public health and early MPH courses"--

Growing up in Mississippi, Cici McNair was always more the tomboy her mother supported than the Southern belle her father demanded. She escaped her suffocating upbringing the first chance she had to travel the world. Whether working at the Vatican in Rome or consorting with a gunrunner in Haiti, she lived a life of international adventure. When Cici finds herself in New York, divorced, broke, and fashionably starving to death in a Madison Avenue apartment, she impulsively decides to become a private detective. But, as Cici soon learns, the world of P.I.s is tight-knit and made up almost exclusively of former law enforcement officers. By nature, they are a highly suspicious group and are especially wary of a newcomer with an untraceable past. Diligently working her way through the Yellow Pages, doggedly pursuing the slightest lead, Cici is finally hired by a private investigator willing to take a chance. The next day she's working side by side with a pair of seasoned detectives and a skip tracer who is scary to meet but like silk on the phone. She quickly realizes she'll need all her energy and wits to succeed in this new world. Being a private investigator is as exciting and liberating as Cici ever dreamed, from creating a false identity on the spot on her first case in the field to surviving adrenaline-rushing car chases. Working with law enforcement, she goes undercover, dealing with the ruthless Born to Kill gang in Chinatown and the Middle Eastern counterfeiters west of Broadway. A detailed account of the hidden world and real-life cases of a P.I., this action-packed memoir is as entertaining as any detective novel you've ever read.

The social world can be a mystery, even to the most savvy among us. While social relationships are frequently a source of joy and satisfaction, they can be a source of frustration and confusion -- downright. What is someone to do if his entire social world is a mystery to him? How is a person supposed to proceed in life if she does not understand why others act the way they do, or how she is supposed to behave in order to fit in with others? While Diary of a Social Detective is first and foremost a detective/ mystery book for young readers, it also addresses these often unspoken questions and offers clear-cut, practical strategies for solving social mysteries. The book is unique in that it steps outside the usual box of social skills solutions and delivers insights, tools and solutions within an engaging storyline that kids can relate to. As a result, it has appeal not just for kids in need of social tools, but also for children ages 8+ who are simply in search of a good story. Diary of a Social Detective chronicles the work of young Johnny who, through his own struggles to fit in socially, has become a well-known social detective in his school, helping other kids solve their social mysteries. The book offers kids (and the people who care for them) practical strategies for dealing with some of the most common problems kids face in everyday social situations in a way that is fun and entertaining.

Upon waking on the morning of her tenth birthday, Moxie Wyoming Woodson embarks on a summer of magic, mayhem and adventure. With rodeo champion Granny Rose as her inspiration, Moxie's birthday dreams kick up visions of a fine young horse that will also help her take on the more grown-up chores on her family's Wyoming ranch. When her father unloads from his trailer the old sway-backed grey-flecked little black horse, Misty, Moxie's hopes lie trampled in the barnyard dust. What she cannot see, but will come to discover, is that her new horse is special in more than just the way she brings this intrepid heroine into her own. Channeling her natural instincts to care for animals and dragging along her reluctant best friend and sidekick Pickle Turner, Moxie Wyoming grows out of pouty disappointment over her broken-down mare. She transforms into a courageous sleuth, hot on the dusty and sinister trail of a menacing gang with a hard-hearted plan to round up and sell a bold and beautiful herd of wild Mustangs. Along the way, Moxie learns there is more magic in helping endangered animals than aspiring to win rodeo ribbons.

During the first decade of this millennium, many thousands of people in Uganda who otherwise would have died from AIDS got second chances at life. A massive global health intervention, the scaling up of antiretroviral therapy (ART), saved them and created a generation of people who learned to live with treatment. As clients they joined programs that offered free antiretroviral medicine and encouraged "positive living." Because ART is not a cure but a lifelong treatment regime, its consequences are far-reaching for society, families, and individuals. Drawing on personal accounts and a broad knowledge of Ugandan culture and history, the essays in this collection explore ART from the perspective of those who received second chances. Their concerns about treatment, partners, children, work, food, and bodies reveal the essential sociality of Ugandan life. The collection is based on research undertaken by a team of social scientists including both Western and African scholars. Contributors. Phoebe Kajubi, David Kyaddondo, Lotte Meinert, Hanne O.

This early work by Arthur Conan Doyle was originally published in 1917 and we are now republishing it with a brand new introductory biography as part of our Sherlock Holmes series. Arthur Conan Doyle was born in Edinburgh, Scotland, in 1859. It was between 1876 and 1881, while studying medicine at the University of Edinburgh, that he began writing short stories, and his first piece was published in Chambers's Edinburgh Journal before he was 20. In 1887, Conan Doyle's first significant work, A Study in Scarlet, appeared in Beeton's Christmas Annual. It featured the first appearance of detective Sherlock Holmes, the protagonist who was to eventually make Conan Doyle's reputation. A prolific writer, Conan Doyle continued to produce a range of fictional works over the following years. We are republishing these classic works in affordable, high quality, modern editions, using the original text and artwork.

“Portrays epidemiologists as disease detectives who tirelessly hunt for clues and excel at deductive reasoning. Even Sherlock Holmes would be proud of this astute group of professionals.”—Booklist Despite advances in health care, infectious microbes continue to be a formidable adversary to scientists and doctors. Vaccines and antibiotics, the mainstays of modern medicine, have not been able to conquer infectious microbes because of their amazing ability to adapt, evolve, and spread to new places. Terrorism aside, one of the greatest dangers from infectious disease we face today is from a massive outbreak of drug-resistant microbes. Deadly Outbreaks recounts the scientific adventures of a special group of intrepid individuals who investigate these outbreaks around the world and figure out how to stop them. Part homicide detective, part physician, these medical investigators must view the problem from every angle, exhausting every possible source of contamination. Any data gathered in the field must be stripped of human sorrows and carefully analyzed into hard statistics. Author Alexandra Levitt, PhD, is an expert on emerging diseases and other public health threats. Here she shares insider accounts she’s collected that go behind the alarming headlines we’ve seen in the media: mysterious food poisonings, unexplained deaths at a children’s hospital, a strange neurologic disease afflicting slaughterhouse workers, flocks of birds dropping dead out of the sky, and drug-resistant malaria running rampant in a refugee camp. Meet the resourceful investigators—doctors, veterinarians, and research scientists—and discover the truth behind these cases and more. This edition features a new introduction by the author!
