Title Modern death :
Author Warraich, Haider, author.
Edition: First edition.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "There is no more universal truth in life than death. No matter who you are, it is certain that one day you will die, but the mechanics and understanding of that experience will differ greatly in today's modern age. Dr. Haider Warraich is a young and brilliant new voice in the conversation about death and dying started by Dr. Sherwin Nuland's classic How We Die: Reflections on Life's Final Chapter, and Atul Gawande's recent sensation, Being Mortal: Medicine and What Matters in the End. Dr. Warraich takes a broader look at how we die today, from the cellular level up to the very definition of death itself. The most basic aspects of dying--the whys, wheres, whens, and hows--are almost nothing like what they were mere decades ago. Beyond its ecology, epidemiology, and economics, the very ethos of death has changed. Modern Death, Dr. Warraich's debut book, will explore the rituals and language of dying that have developed in the last century, and how modern technology has not only changed the hows, whens, and wheres of death, but the what of death. Delving into the vast body of research on the evolving nature of death, Modern Death will provide readers with an enriched understanding of how death differs from the past, what our ancestors got right, and how trends and events have transformed this most final of human experiences"-- Provided by publisher.

Title The girl from the Metropol Hotel : growing up in communist Russia

Title The girl from the Metropol Hotel :
Author Petrushevskai͡a, Li͡udmila, author.
Publication Date(s) 2017
Format: Books
Summary "The prizewinning memoir of one of the world's great writers, about coming of age and finding her voice amid the hardships of Stalinist Russia. Like a young Edith Piaf, wandering the streets singing for alms, and like Oliver Twist, living by his wits, Ludmilla Petrushevskaya grew up watchful and hungry, a diminutive figure far removed from the heights she would attain as an internationally celebrated writer. In The Girl from the Metropol Hotel, her prizewinning memoir, she recounts her childhood of extreme deprivation, made more acute by the awareness that her family of Bolshevik intellectuals, now reduced to waiting in bread lines, once lived large across the street from the Kremlin in the opulent Metropol Hotel. As she unravels the threads of her itinerant upbringing--of feigned orphandom, of sleeping in freight cars and beneath the kitchen tables of communal apartments, of the fugitive pleasures of scraps of food--we see, both in her remarkable lack of self-pity and in the more than two dozen photographs throughout the text, her feral instinct and the crucible in which her gift for giving voice to a nation of survivors was forged"-- Provided by publisher.

Publication Date(s) 2016
Format: Books
Summary "The United States is privatizing the ocean, wreaking havoc on the seas and on fishing towns. Some people believe it is worth it ... Journalist Lee van der Voo tells the story of the people and places left behind in this era of ocean privatization--a trend that has put more than half of American seafood under private control. She explains the methods that investors, equity firms, and seafood landlords have used to capture the upside of the sustainable seafood movement and why many people believe they work. She also goes behind the scenes of the Slow Fish movement, where some argue that consumers shouldn't have to buy sustainability from Wall Street or choose between the environment and their fisherman"--From publisher description.
