Cancer prevention : the causes and prevention of cancer by Graham A Colditz( )

in English and held by 331 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This volume, the first in the new series "Cancer Prevention - Cancer Causes", is derived from the 1st and 2nd Reports of the Harvard Center for Cancer Prevention published in "Cancer Causes and Control", 1996; 7(Suppl 1) and 1997; 8(Suppl 2), respectively. This volume expands on materials to summarize the evidence on causes of cancer and to set forth a series of strategies to promote the prevention of cancer. "Cancer Prevention - Cancer Causes" is designed to provide a comprehensive overview of what is known about cancer risk in the United States (and other established market economies) and the preventive measures we can take to reduce the burden of cancer. The first half of this volume reviews the causes of human cancer considering a wide range of potential sources of risk such as smoking, diet, sedentary lifestyle, occupational factors, viruses, and alcohol. It concludes that cancer is indeed preventable. Over 50 percent of cancers could be prevented if what is already known about the causes of cancer could be implemented.; The second half of this volume summarizes research on prevention programmes, public education campaigns, and social policy measures for preventing cancer. Working in schools, health clinics, and workplaces as well as through the mass media and in the political arena, social scientists and health educators are designing innovative and effective health promotion programs to help people quit smoking, eat more healthily, and exercise more
Is Samuel among the Deuteronomists? : current views on the place of Samuel in a Deuteronomistic history by Cynthia Edenburg( )

in English and held by 329 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book of Samuel tells the story of the origins of kingship in Israel in what seems to be an artistically structured, flowing narrative. Yet it is also marked by an inconsistent outlook, divergent styles, and breaks in the narrative. According to Noth's Deuteronomistic History hypothesis, the Deuteronomistic historian constructed the narrative by piecing together early sources and generally refrained from commenting in his own voice. Recent studies have called into question the extent of Samuel's sources and their redaction history, as well as the textual growth of the book as a whole. The essays in this book, representing the latest scholarship on the subject, reexamine whether the book of Samuel was ever part of a Deuteronomistic History. (back cover)
Israelite prophecy and the Deuteronomistic history : portrait, reality, and the formation of a history by Mignon R Jacobs( )

in English and held by 327 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This collection of essays examines the relationship of prophecy to the Deuteronomistic History (Deuteronomy-2 Kings), including the historical reality of prophecy within the literature itself. The contributors use a number of perspectives to explore the varieties of intermediation and the cultic setting of prophecy in the ancient Near East; the portrayal of prophecy in pentateuchal traditions, pre-Deuteronomistic sources, and other Near Eastern literature; the diverse perspectives reflected within the Deuteronomistic History; and the possible Persian period setting for the final form of the Deuteronomistic History. --From publisher's description

The Labour Party in Britain and Norway : elections and the pursuit of power between the world wars by David Redvaldsen( Book )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 80 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Labour Party in Britain and Norway offers an in-depth analysis of the fate of each party as they approached the crucial general elections of the 1920's and 1930's, and the way in which they responded to the realities of power under the leaderships of Ramsay MacDonald and Clement Attlee in Britain, and Christopher Homsrud and Johan Nygaardsvold in Norway. It asks what made each party successful, and by proposing that the Labour Party of Norway was the more successful of the two, draws important conclusions that have resonance for the study of socialist and political parties in general. Here, Redvaldsen offers a unique insight into the rise and expansion of the Labour parties of Britain and Norway, something which will have utmost relevance not only to students and researchers of left-wing politics but also to those interested in the nature of the pursuit of power itself in the crucial interwar period. --Book Jacket
