Life after ninety by Michael Bury( )

23 editions published between 1990 and 2016 in English and held by 1,941 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Long life, including particularly, the factors which might promote it, is of perennial interest to human beings, but the circumstances of very old people less so. Whilst there is much discussion about ageing in today's society, there is less willingness to examine the assumptions which underpin our attitudes towards old age. These assumptions are based on a variety of contradictory positive and negative sentiments which coalesce into stereotypes. The very old represent the fastest growing section of the population of most Western societies. Reactions by public and politicians alike are often marked by alarm and dismay. It is assumed that the hallmark of very old age is decrepitude, and that, consequently, demands on services will be unmanageable. The very old are thus portrayed as a burden to themselves and others. In Life After Ninety Michael Bury and Anthea Holme have surveyed and interviewed just under 200 individuals, living at home and in communal establishments, which has enabled them to present a unique picture of the health, quality of life, and social circumstances of the very old.; Longevity and the factors which promote it are also discussed, and throughout the book the concept of the life course' is employed, bringing together the biographical experiences of individuals, and the changing historical circumstances of the twentieth century, through which they have lived. Though poor health and unhappiness do mar the lives of some individuals and their carers, the book also shows that a good quality of life is often possible in very old age, and that life after ninety can involve both contentment and dignity

Health and illness in a changing society by Michael Bury( Book )

18 editions published between 1997 and 2013 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Health and illness are intensely personal matters. It seems self evident that health is a basic necessity of the 'good life', though it is often taken for granted. Illness, on the other hand challenges our sense of security and may introduce acute anxiety into our lives. Health and Illness in a Changing Society provides a lively and critical account of the impact of social change on the experience of health and illness. It also examines the different sociological perspectives that have been used to analyse health matters. While some of the ideas developed in the last twenty years remain relevant to social research in health today, many are in need of urgent revision

Dialogue on the errors and abuses of painters by Giovanni Andrea Gilio( Book )

1 edition published in 2018 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Giovanni Andrea Gilio's Dialogue on the Errors and Abuses of Painters (1564) is one of the first treatises on art published in the post-Tridentine period. It remains a key primary source for the discussion of the reform of art as it unfolded at the time of the Council of Trent and the Catholic Reformation. Through a spirited conversation among six protagonists, Gilio grapples with a host of issues, from the relationship between poetry and painting, to the function of religious images, to the effects such images have on viewers. The primary focus is the proper representation of history, especially sacred history, and Michelangelo's Last Judgment fresco in the Sistine Chapel is the exemplary case. Michelangelo's painting is both praised and condemned as an example of the possibilities and limits of art. Although Gilio's dialogue is often used to point out the Roman Catholic Church's more controlling view of art and artists, the unabridged text--here translated into English in full for the first time--reveals the nuanced and provisional debates about how subject matter should be represented in this crucial period--Cover page 4

The expert patient( Recording )

1 edition published in 2005 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

The second in a two-part series about living with a chronic medical condition. In the UK nearly a third of the population has a chronic medical condition for which, up until now, the NHS has assumed responsibility for care. Now a new concept is being launched by the government, called the Expert Patient Initiative. The second part of this series looks at how practical the expert patient scheme is, with particular focus on the doctor / patient relationship. GPs are worried that it will create more work for them rather than less, but results of the pilot studies so far show that the expert patients visit the GP less frequently than before
