Inequalities in Health - The Black Report, Pter Townsend and Nick Davidson
62 Pter Townsend and Nick Davidson Inequalities in Health - The Black Report
Pelican / Penguin Books 226501 Great Britain 1983 Softcover Very Good Condition No Dust Jacket From birth to old age those at the bottom of the social scale have much poorer health and quality of life than those at the top. Gender, area of residence and ethnic origin also have a deep impact. When the Black Report first revealed these tragic inequalities and made urgent recommendations for change, the "British Medical Journal", and many others, regarded it as the most important medical report since World War II. It's findings however, were dismissed by the incoming government, which tried unsuccessfully to bury it. Despite this it had, and continues to have, a profound influence on the medical and academic worlds. This book examines the inequalities that exist in the British Health system. 240 pages. Very light tanning to page edges . Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: sociology; Sociology & Culture; Inventory No: 226501. Paperback

Division Street: America, Studs Terkel
72 Studs Terkel Division Street: America
Pelican / Penguin Books 243812 Great Britain 1970 0140210555 / 9780140210552 Softcover Good Condition Division Street, Studs Terkel’s first book of oral history, established his reputation as America’s foremost oral historian and as “one of those rare thinkers who is actually willing to go out and talk to the incredible people of this country” (in the words of Tom Wolfe). Viewing the inhabitants of a single city, Chicago, as a microcosm of the nation at large, Division Street chronicles the thoughts and feelings of some seventy people from widely varying backgrounds in terms of class, race, and personal history. From a mother and son who migrated from Appalachia to a Native American boilerman, from a streetwise ex–gang leader to a liberal police officer, from the poorest African Americans to the richest socialites, these unique and often intimate first-person accounts form a multifaceted collage that defies any simple stereotype of America. As Terkel himself put it: “I was on the prowl for a cross–section of urban thought, using no one method or technique. . . I guess I was seeking some balance in the wildlife of the city as Rachel Carson sought it in nature. Revealing aspects of people’s lives that are normally invisible to most of us, Division Street is a fascinating survey of a city, and a society, at a pivotal moment of the twentieth century. 426 pages. Foxing to endpapers and page edges. Quantity Available: 1. Shipped Weight: Under 1 kilogram. Category: Sociology; Sociology & Culture; ISBN: 0140210555. ISBN/EAN: 9780140210552. Inventory No: 243812.

Law at the Margins - Towards Social Participation?, Terry Carney
74 Terry Carney Law at the Margins - Towards Social Participation?
Oxford University Press 231054 Oxford 1991 First Edition 0195532198 / 9780195532197 Hardcover Very Good Condition Very Good This book examines the relationship between the law and other disciplines in establishing the rights of citizens to gain access to state services and resources which define their status as citizens of the welfare state. Carney rejects the argument that law necessarily does more harm than good, and that market (or other) responses are superior. He does, however, allow that the law has often been expressed in an excessively prescriptive (and detailed) form, and argues that because of this factor a new "responsive" role is called for in the law's application. 199 pages.

Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples, United Nations General Assembly
79 United Nations General Assembly Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples
Allen & Unwin 233315 Australia 2009 1741758459 / 9781741758450 Hardcover Near Fine Condition Near Fine Michel Streich On 13 September 2007 the General Assembly of the United Nations, with an overwhelming majority of votes, adopted the Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples. The Declaration was over 22 years in the making. Its purpose, as described by the UN, is to set an important standard for the treatment of indigenous peoples and to act as a significant tool in eliminating human rights violations against the planet's over 350 million indigenous people, while assisting them in combating discrimination and marginalisation. Only four countries voted against it: the USA, Canada, New Zealand and Australia. In 2009, the Australian Government decided to endorse this landmark Declaration. With the same insight that he brought to The Universal Declaration of Human Rights, Michel Streich's simple yet moving illustrations add powerful resonance to this highly topical and controversial issue. The Declaration on the Rights of Indigenous Peoples is a clear and strong statement of hope, belief and purpose - an important document for our time. Illustrator: Michel Streich.
