[i]-ix,[1],(1)-235,[5], + 4 p. of plates. 8vo, black cloth with giltlettering to spine. "In 'A Dentist and a Gentleman', Tracey Adams examines the historical development of dentistry as a profession in Ontario from th e late nineteenth century to the end of the First World War to explore the significance of gender, particularly masculinity, in the formation of professions. Adams makes the case that gender was an important factor in the establishment of the dental profession. At one time considered a trade, dentistry gradually evolved and attained professional status. The early dentists worked to recruit, and indeed structured the professionin such a way as to recruit, middle-class white men into the professino. Gender and class divisions were drawn upon to legitimate professional roles and claims to professinoal status; by definition, a professional was a gentleman." - from the dustjacket. Contents: 1.

Cambridge University Press, Cambridge [et al], 1986, ISBN:0521307155 1986 0521307155 / 9780521307154 
AINSWORTH, G. C. Introduction to the History of Medical and Veterinary Mycology. Cambridge [et al] : Cambridge University Press, (1986). First Edition. Pp (6),vii-xi,(1),[1]-228. Illustrated. Index. 8vo, black cloth, gilt lettering to spine.

Garrison & Morton, Medical Bibliography (5th edition) 5546.10.

"This book is the first to give a well-documented, illustrated survey of the historical background to disease caused by fungi in man and domesticated animals. Medical and veterinary mycology includes the study of infectious diseases caused by actinomycetes and allergic conditions induced by both fungi and actinomycetes, and their history is also described here. The foundations of medical mycology have been laid over the past centuries but have only been completed during recent decades. This is therefore an appropriate moment to write the history of this specialty, which involves the collaboration of medically qualified and non-medically trained workers. Dr Ainsworth's long and varied career in mycology fits him ideally to the task he has undertaken and he has drawn on his experience to provide an invaluable scholarly perspective of the area." (from the dj).

Contents :
1. Introduction.
2. Aetiology: dermatophytes and the taxonomic problem.
3. Names: problems of nomenclature.
4. Problems of pathogenic status with special reference to mycelial yeasts.
5. Epidemiological problems :
1. Effects of the pathogen on the host;
2. Effects of the host on the pathogen;
3. The pathogen and the environment;
4. The 'compromised' patient;
5. Geographical distributionof mycoses.
6. Therapeutic problems.
7. Spores as allergens: a problem of sensitization.
8. Mycetism, mycotoxicoses, and hallucinogenic fungi: toxicological problems.
9. Training mycopathologists: an educational problem.
10.Regional developments.

AINSWORTH, G. C. Introduction to the History of Mycology. Cambridge / London / New York / Melbourne : Cambridge University Press, (1976). First Edition. Pp (8),vii-xi,(1),1-359,(5). Illustrated. Index. 8vo, green cloth, gilt lettering to red panel to spine. "Dr Ainsworth gives a straightforward account of the main views held about fungi for the past three millennia and thedevelopment of the study of fungi as a branch of science for the last 250 years. The existing literature is widely scattered and much of it suffers from difficulty of access. In this volume there is documented an outline of the development of the main areas of mycology, with emphasis on the solution of the major problems that have confronted students of fungi and novel discoveries which have given new insights. A number of important themes form the basis of the account, each one being traced from early times to the twentieth century. The themes are arranged in the chronology of their appearance in mycological studies. Most chapters are thus self-contained. [...] Whilst an elementary knowledge of mycology is assumed, technicalities have been kept to a minimum so that not only mycologists but other biologists and historians of science can understand the history of the development of knowledge of an important group of organisms." (from the dj). Contents : Preface. 1. Introduction. 2. The origin and status of fungi. 3. Form and structure. 4. Culture and nutrition. 5. Sexuality, cytology and genetics. 6. Pathogenicity. 7. Poisonous, hallucinogenic and allergenic fungi. 8. Uses of fungi. 9. Distribution of fungi. 10. Classification. 11. Organisation for mycology. Epilogue.

Roland & Bernier, Second ary Sources in the History of Canadian Medicine: A Bibliography, Volume 2, pp.118 & 141. "The story of the serendipitous discovery or x-rays is almostlegendary, but it bears retelling in this volume. Although Rontgen was a r emarkable man, he likely did not foresee just how far his discovery would lead the next century. Despite its small population, Canada has played a full part in the early uses of radiation: the discovery of alpha particles, cobalt-60 treatment for cancer, Alexander Graham Bell's experiments, and one of the very first uses of a raadiograph in helping a surgeon to operate successfully, for example. [...] With more than 60 contributors and over 100 chapters, A New Kind of Ray brings together in one volume the story of Canadian achievements over the past 100 years in the fields of radiology, radiation oncology, nuclear medicine and radiation protection."

11 ALEXANDER, Bruce K. Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. First Edition in dustjacket.
Oxford University Press, Oxford, 2008, ISBN:9780199230129 
ALEXANDER, Bruce K. The Globalisation of Addiction : A Study in Poverty of the Spirit. Oxford: Oxford University Press, (2008). First Printing. Pp. (12),[1]-470,(6), + 2 p. of colour plates. 8vo, black cloth with silver lettering to spine. The author is affiliated with the Department of Psychology at Simon Fraser University. "Scientific medicine has failed to bring addiction under control. There are no reliable methods to cure it, prevent it, or take the pain out of it. There is no durable consensus on what addiction is, what causes it, or what should be done about it. Meanwhile, it continues to increase around the world. This book argues that the cause of this failure to control addiction is that the conventional wisdom of the 19th and 20th centuries focused too single-mindedly on the afflicted individual addict.Although addiction obviously manifests itself in individual cases, its pre valence differs dramatically between societies. [...] This book shows that the social circumstances that spread addiction in a conquered tribe or a failing civilisation are also built into today's globalising free-market society. [...] The book [also] argues that the most effective response to a growing addiction problem is a social and poltiical one, rather than an individual one. Such a solution would not put the doctors, psychologists, social workers, politicians, and priests, who have served with such dedication, out of work, but it would incorporate their practices in a larger social preoject. The project is to reshape society with enough forces and imagination to enable people to find social integration and meaning in everyday life." - from the dustjacket.
