The Oxford history of the prison : the practice of punishment in western society by Norval Morris( Book )

25 editions published between 1995 and 1998 in English and held by 2,534 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The authors trace the persistent tension between the desire to punish and the hope for rehabilitation, recounting the institution's evolution from the rowdy and squalid English jails of the 1700s, in which prisoners and visitors ate and drank together; to the sober and stark nineteenth-century penitentiaries, whose inmates were forbidden to speak or even to see one another; and finally to the "big houses" of the current American prison system, in which prisoners are as overwhelmed by intense boredom as by the threat of violence. The text also provides a gripping and personal look at the social world of prisoners and their keepers over the centuries. In addition, thematic chapters explore in-depth a variety of special institutions and other important aspects of prison history, including the jail, the reform school, the women's prison, political imprisonment, and prison and literature
Conscience and convenience : the asylum and its alternatives in progressive America by David J Rothman( Book )

22 editions published between 1980 and 2012 in English and held by 1,512 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book is a contribution to American social history and social policy in its own right, as well as forming a sequel to Rothman's earlier book, "The Discovery of the Asylum". Here, Rothman explores the origins and consequences of the programmes that have dominated criminal justice, juvenile justice and mental health in the past century. He also casts new light on the modern effort to reform the asylum and devise alternatives to it. Rothman aims to further our understanding of the fundamental character of social order - and disorder - in the United States. A new epilogue assesses prison conditions in America over the past two decades and the more recent failed attempts to reform them

The pursuit of perfection : the promise and perils of medical enhancement by Sheila M Rothman( Book )

20 editions published between 1998 and 2013 in English and held by 829 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Publisher description: What does it mean to live in a time when medical science can not only cure the human body but also reshape it? How should we as individuals and as a society respond to new drugs and genetic technologies? Sheila and David Rothman address these questions with a singular blend of history and analysis, taking us behind the scenes to explain how scientific research, medical practice, drug company policies, and a quest for peak performance combine to exaggerate potential benefits and minimize risks. They present a fascinating and factual story from the rise of estrogen and testosterone use in the 1920s and 1930s to the frenzy around liposuction and growth hormone to the latest research into the genetics of aging. The Rothmans reveal what happens when physicians view patients' unhappiness and dissatisfaction with their bodies-short stature, thunder thighs, aging-as though they were diseases to be treated. The Pursuit of Perfection takes us from the early days of endocrinology (the belief that you are your hormones) to today's frontier of genetic enhancements (the idea that you are your genes). It lays bare the always complicated and sometimes compromised positions of science, medicine, and commerce. This is the book to read before signing on for the latest medical fix

Trust is not enough : bringing human rights to medicine by David J Rothman( Book )

6 editions published between 2005 and 2007 in English and held by 418 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"During the last half-century many international declarations have proclaimed health care to be a fundamental human right. But high aspirations repeatedly confront harsh realities, in societies both rich and poor. To illustrate this disparity, David and Sheila Rothman bring together stories from their investigations around the world into medical abuses. A central theme runs through their account: how the principles of human rights, including bodily integrity, informed consent, and freedom from coercion, should guide physicians and governments in dealing with patients and health care."--Jacket

What do we owe each other? : rights and obligations in contemporary American society( Book )

4 editions published in 2008 in English and held by 176 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

From the Publisher: "What Do We Owe Each Other? includes essays by some of the finest social and political policy researchers in the United States. They address critical issues in contemporary American society. These range from the making of public opinion. the nature of the presumed social contract between government and its people, the special place of corporate governance and institutional investors with respect to social stability, the search for educational equality in a world of growing income disparities. the huge run up in prison populations and the decline of American citizenship, and not least, the ethical issues of selfless and selfish motivations with respect to organ transplants. and the sale of body parts." The contributors display a wide diversity of opinion. but the volume is unified by the belief that ethical concerns play as large a role in defining American society as do economic interests. The book should attract the attention of political scientists, sociologists, economists, and above all, those people interested in how policy analysis is fused with moral considerations at the start as well as at the close of decision making as such
Medical professionalism in the new information age( Book )

8 editions published in 2010 in English and held by 168 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With computerized health information receiving unprecedented government support, a group of health policy scholars analyze the intricate legal, social, and professional implications of the new technology. These essays explore how Health Information Technology (HIT) may alter relationships between physicians and patients, physicians and other providers, and physicians and their home institutions. Patient use of web-based information may undermine the traditional information monopoly that physicians have long enjoyed. New IT systems may increase physicians' legal liability and heighten expectations about transparency. Case studies on kidney transplants and maternity practices reveal the unanticipated effects, positive and negative, of patient uses of the new technology. An independent HIT profession may emerge, bringing another organized interest into the medical arena. Taken together, these investigations cast new light on the challenges and opportunities presented by HIT
