Requiem with Yellow Butterflies : A Memoir. by Halford, James.;
Intro -- Title Page -- Copyright -- Contents -- Dedication -- Requiem with Yellow Butterflies -- Caracas -- We Want Them Alive -- Roraima &amp -- Manaus -- Don't Care if It Ever Rains Again -- And the Village Was Fair to Look upon -- Redcliffe -- Old Peak, Young Peak -- Uluru: How to Travel Without See -- Porto Velho &amp -- Brasilia -- Coetzee in Buenos Aires -- Parque Lezama -- Such Loneliness in That Gold -- San Miguel del Monte -- The Lakeside House -- Notes -- Acknowledgements.An Australian writer and a Mexican scientist fall in love reading great Latin American books aloud. But it takes a decade of journeys across the region, together and apart, for them to learn to read each other.Requiem with Yellow Butterflies is a love story and travel memoir that unfolds against the turbulent backdrop of Latin America in the 2000s. It takes us on a 1200-kilometre question-mark shaped loop through the newly socialist republics of the 'pink tide,' to a requiem mass for Mexico's disappeared and eventually back to Australia.Through evocative, unexpected pairings of southern hemisphere places and authors -- Jose María Arguedas's Andes and Judith Wright's Cooloola coast, the Argentine pampa and the central Queensland brigalow country -- the book explores distinct but parallel postcolonial literary traditions, the disordering state of love and the strangeness of coming home.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.

Women and New Reproductive Technologies : Medical, Psychosocial, Legal, and Ethical Dilemmas. by Rodin, Judith.(DLC)1731408; Collins, Aila.(DLC)1829988;
Front Cover -- Women and New Reproductive Technologies: Medical, Psychosocial, Legal, and Ethical Dilemmas -- Copyright Page -- Contents -- Preface -- 1.

The History of the Relationship Between Women's Health and Technology: Nancy Schrom Dye -- 3.

Communicating About the New Reproductive Technologies: Cultural, Interpersonal, and Linguistic Determinants of Understanding: Rayna Rapp -- 10. The New Reproductive Technologies: What Have WeLearned?: Aila Collins and Judith Rodin -- Author Index -- Subject Index.Although major breakthroughs in reproductive technology have created dramatic opportunities for many people, they are not without problems. More significant than the question of whether the technologies are "good" or "bad," however, is for whom they are good, in what instances, and to whom they should be made accessible. These issues can be debated at multiple levels; from the ethical implications, to the social and psychological consequences for society and for the individual, to the legal and medical outcomes. Each chapter highlights a different array of problems and benefits, while emphasizing four major themes: the impact of technology on women's lives; the role of women; the individual versus society; and the fetus as patient.Description based on publisher supplied metadata and other sources.Electronic reproduction.
