How close are we to defeating cancer? A “calming and illuminating” blend of memoir and medical history (Janet Maslin, The New York Times). When his father was diagnosed with cancer, documentary filmmaker Adam Wishart couldn’t find a book that clearly answered his most basic questions: What was the disease and how did it take hold? What is it about cancer’s biology that makes it hard to eradicate? And most importantly, are we on the way to a cure? One in Three is both a son’s personal story and a journalistic take on cancer’s history, outlining the encouraging story of science’s progress in changing the outlook on cancer from a disease we die from to one we live with. Covering the discovery of the disease, its treatment, and its prevention, this is a story of both hardship and hope, and a helpful companion for anyone dealing with this all too common illness as a patient, a loved one, or a caregiver. “An engaging presentation of facts reported with the cool detachment of a professional journalist interspersed with the raw feelings of a son recording the progress of his father’s fatal illness, what’s right and wrong within the medical community, and the emotional toll on everyone involved with the father and son’s journey.” —Booklist “Fascinating.” —San Francisco Chronicle “Makes abstract science accessible and dignifies a human story with the insights of medicine.” —Andrew Solomon, New York Times–bestselling and National Book Award–winning author of Far from the Tree

Who performed the first caesarean? Was Julius Caesar born by caesarean section? If I have a caesarean for my first baby do all the other births have to be caesareans as well? Is it okay for a woman to have a caesarean just because she wants one ... or is she being selfish? What are the real risks of caesarean section? And why is the caesarean rate rising steadily in Australia, so that one in three babies is now born this way? These questions, and many others about this hotly debated surgical operation, are all answered in Hail Caesar, a well-informed and provocative explanation of every aspect of caesarean birth. From the pen of a woman doctor who has personally performed more than 4,000 caesareans comes a guide to the operation packed with facts, sympathetic to all viewpoints, and up-to-date in its attitudes. Caesarean, says Caroline de Costa, while not a natural method of birth, is now both common and safe, and should be regarded as one of the normal birth methods. Accurate information about the surgery should be supplied to all pregnant women, so that when faced with the possibility of the surgery for themselves they can make an informed decision. Currently women who give birth by caesarean too often end up feeling guilty or negative about their experience because they have not been well prepared. For mothers, mothers to be, fathers, partners, families and all those just interested in birth, here is the definitive book on caesarean section in Australia in the 21st century.

"Robert and Helen Lynd's Middletown set the format in sociological theory and practice for hundreds of studies in the decades following its publication in 1929. Old People in Three Industrial Societies may well set similar standards for studies in its fi eld for many years to come. In addition to achieving a signifi cant breakthrough in the progress of socio logical research techniques, the book offers a monumental cross-cultural exposition of the health, family relationships, and social and economic status of the aged in three countries-the United States, Britain, and Denmark."--Provided by publisher.
