Spare parts : organ replacement in American Society by Renée C Fox( )

17 editions published between 1992 and 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 2,138 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The developments that have occurred in the field of organ transplantation during the 1980s and early 1990s, and the simultaneous rise and fall of the Jarvik-7 artificial heart, are the subject of this vividly written and absorbing new book. In Spare Parts, fascinating, interconnected stories of organ transplantation and the artificial heart are recounted in an interpretive framework that explores the vision of "the replaceable body." Themes of uncertainty, gift exchange, and the allocation of scarce material and non-material resources underscore a discussion that openly examines the escalating ardor about the goodness of repairing and remaking people with transplanted organs. Likewise, the stories open questions of life and death, identity, and solidarity. This important book offers insights into the symbolic and anthropomorphic meanings associated with the human body and its organs, and into the ways that medical professionals come to terms with the concomitant aspects of transferring vital body parts. Both artificial and donor organs, as well as the process of transplantation, are the subject of a thoughtful discussion which touches on the medical myths and rituals that they generate. Chronologically, Spare Parts begins where the authors' previous book, The Courage to Fail leaves off. More than a sequel, however, this work reflects their increasingly troubled and critical reactions to the expansion of organ replacement. Likely to be controversial, this book is must reading for bioethicists, medical sociologists and anthropologists, health-care lawyers, planners, and administrators, nurses, physicians, medical journalists and science writers, and concerned lay readers
The courage to fail : a social view of organ transplants and dialysis by Renée C Fox( Book )

31 editions published between 1974 and 2017 in English and held by 1,079 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"The title of this profound work conveys the bold, uncertain, and often dangerous adventure in which medical professionals and their organ transplant and dialysis patients are engaged. Built around a series of case studies, The Courage to Fail is the product of collaborative first-hand research concerned with various social phenomena generated by transplantation and dialysis. The authors examine the individuals involved and the workings and atmosphere of some of the medical centers in which these forms of therapy have been developed. They examine ""gift-exchange"" dimensions of transplantation: the transcendent and tyrannical aspects of the ""gift of life"" that transplants entail for donors and recipients-and for medical professionals as well. They also analyze the dilemma of uncertainty inherent in medicine, which occurs with particular force in the development of such experimental techniques.Since publication of the original edition, the authors have continued to follow social and medical developments surrounding organ transplants and dialysis. In their new introduction, they discuss transplantation as a gift of life, how and when death occurs, efforts to procure more organs, and organ replacement and issues of equity. This book will be of interest to physicians, medical students, medical sociologists, and anyone interested in the history of and issues surrounding organ transplantation and dialysis."--Provided by publisher
Observing bioethics by Renée C Fox( )

18 editions published between 2008 and 2011 in English and held by 803 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Based on original primary and extensive secondary source materials, the book views bioethics as a complex phenomenon that is not only related to advances in modern biology, medicine, and biotechnology but also to the fundamental values and beliefs and larger moral and existential questions which American society has been collectively grappling in its courts, legislatures, and media. Although they center their analysis on U.S. bioethics, the authors also trace the field's international spread, including case studies of bioethics in France and Pakistan - two of the many societies in which it has developed. While recognizing the intellectual, moral and sociological importance of American bioethics, they are critical of certain of its characteristics. Concerned about their implications-especially the problems of thinking socially, culturally, and internationally that have existed since bioethics' inception; the field's "tenuous interdisciplinarity"; and the extent to which the "culture wars" on the larger American scene have recently penetrated it

Chlorpromazine in psychiatry; a study of therapeutic innovation by Judith P Swazey( Book )

6 editions published in 1974 in English and held by 240 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book follows the history of the discovery of drugs that would be used in the treatment of mental illness, in particular schizophrenia by the late 1940s and early 1950s in Switzerland, France, Canada and the USA. The story goes back to 1883 when the chemical progenitors of chlorpromazine were synthesized for use in the blue dye industry in Heidelberg. Then it follows the the development of antihistamines after WW I for the treatment of shock in surgery. In 1950 it was proposed the this class of drugs might be useful in the treatment of mental illness. It is a fascinating history. The history was commissioned bya research group which ask whether the drugs could have been discovered earlier. Could they learn anything from the 90 year history of the development that would help design research projects that could be accelerated if an attempt were made to link the chance discoveries of research more efficiently. Here comes the spoiler: No. It makes the point the apparently that pure research is the basis on which the rest is built
