At a time when studies suggest the average American woman spends seventeen years caring for children and eighteen years caring for aging parents, Julia T. Wood examines how culture creates and sustains our definitions of caring, determines who cares along gender lines, and assigns the diminished value that caring has in our society. Wood argues that America's expanding need for caring is currently being met at an unacceptably high cost to caregivers. It is time, she believes, to examine caregiving roles and the personal, political, and social issues that surround the question of who cares. Caring must be recognized and promoted as an activity that commands the respect and participation of all members of our society--men and women alike. Only by implementing changes in the basic fabric of American culture, affecting both the structure and the policies of our society and government, can we, Wood concludes, carve out a system of caring that will recognize caring as everyone's responsibility.

By focussing on child care and systematically comparing national experiences in Belgium, France, Italy, Sweden, and the European Union, Who Cares? provides an enormous amount of information on recent child care policies and a clear perspective on thinking about welfare state redesign. Many countries have now designed child care policies 'to reconcile family and work.' Some encourage parents to provide their own child care by granting parental leave; others encourage parents to stay at work by supporting child care services. Using the case of child care policy, the contributors to this volume examine how public policy choices over the last three decades have been fashioned by specific understandings of the gendered division of labour. The authors of the country studies have done an excellent job of recounting the details of child care strategies, and placing them within the larger context of state approaches to women's roles. They argue that an examination of the direction and the form of spending, in this period when social spending is under attack, contributes to our understanding of new principles of citizenship as they have been developed and articulated by governments. Who Cares? highlights the connection between child care and employment, and makes a significant contribution to the literature on citizenship and women's work.

The reasons for children coming into care are many, so too are the services and provisions that structure their new lives. The manner in which these are applied to individual children varies beyond classification. Care means many different things to many different children, but every child in care today shares the common ground of an early experience of family distress and breakdown. Written by a group of young people in care, this publications provided a platform from which they could speak freely about their hopes, aspirations, contentions, criticisms and fears. As well as detailing their experiences of public care, Who Cares? highlights those aspects of the system that need addressing to ensure that it meets the social, emotional and educational needs of all children and young people. Now available as an ebook.

To the surprise of many, George W. Bush pledged $10 billion to combat AIDS in developing nations. Noted specialist Susan Hunter tells the untold story of AIDS in Africa, home to 80 percent of the 40 million people in the world currently infected with HIV. She weaves together the history of colonialism in Africa, an insider's take on the reluctance of drug companies to provide cheap medication and vaccines in poor countries, and personal anecdotes from the 20 years she spent in Africa working on the AIDS crisis. Taken together, these strands make it unmistakably clear that a history of the exploitation of developing nations by the West is directly responsible for the spread of disease in developing nations and the AIDS pandemic in Africa. Hunter looks at what Africans are already doing on the ground level to combat AIDS, and what the world can and must do to help. Accessibly written and hard-hitting, Black Death brings the staggering statistics to life and paints for the first time a stunning picture of the most important political issue today.

The story of modern medicine is one of miraculous new lifesaving techniques, sophisticated drugs and health professionals with increasingly specialised skills. Yet patients still feel frightened and vulnerable, and mistakes occur far too frequently-with tragic consequences. Drawing on a lifetime of work in health care, Judy Lumby argues that the system continues to serve those who work in it rather than the people it is intended to care for. Despite the rhetoric of consumer choice, patients' experiences and concerns are routinely ignored in diagnosis and treatment. Despite the impact of the women's movement, hospitals remain rigidly hierarchical while the primary carers, nurses, are still excluded from decision-making. Judy Lumby writes from a patient's perspective. From interviews, anecdotes and observations, she paints a vivid picture of what it is like to be sick in an ailing and changing health care system. She looks at patients' experiences today, and compares them with the situation three decades ago, when she first started her nursing training. Who Cares? is compelling reading for anyone involved in the health care system: nurses, doctors, administrators and, of course, patients themselves.
