The author asks if you know anyone or yourself who was diagnosed with breast cancer? If so, even if they made it the journey probably wasn't one they or you would want to repeat. What if it were possible to diagnose breast cancer at an ultra-small stage before it had a chance to spread (The lavender Way). What if you could treat breast cancer successfully in an office setting (Lavender Procedure) in twenty minutes without a single stitch and resume normal activity immediately? What if that doctor had cancer-free survivors going on seven years out, is that a story you want to know about? This book was written by a dedicated and pioneering breast cancer surgeon/researcher. His mantra is to preserve the mind, body, and spirit of the women who have come to him from all over the world. He is the author of America's first large-scale breast cancer prevention clinical trial using the drug Tamoxifen. It chronicles his life's story from his earliest memories of growing up in the 1950s in Chicago to his modeling career, to wrestling a bear a county fair, to his high school and college stories, then on to medical school and surgical residency, and finally his years at Eisenhower Memorial Hospital including operating on First Lady Betty Ford and opening up the first comprehensive breast in the Coachella Valley. His research efforts have taken him to the erstwhile Soviet Union, Cherbonyl, Beijing, and a host of other countries where he has been asked to speak. This book is entitled Sacrificing America's Women Part 1 because there is an answer to breast cancer that is being summarily dismissed by an establishment that refuses change and wants to perpetuate the slash, poison. burn approach as some people say. He served as a principal speaker on President Bushe's Breast Cancer Panel and served three years as a civilian aboard the Marine Air Ground Combat Center at 29 Palms, CA, was awarded the Carnegie Medal for an outstanding act of heroism, and ran for Congress against Sony Bono. He has been recognized for excellence by people at FLIR and awarded two medals of excellence by the then-commanding general of the 335th Medical Brigade of the Army. He was interviewed by CNN for his groundbreaking efforts at breast cancer prevention, holds a Principal Investigator number with the NCI, he testified for the State of California in the proceedings about Tamoxifen and has given a TED-TALK. Yet through all this effort to help the world's women, he was placed on probation by the Medical Board for finding him negligent. It was/is disappointingly enigmatic where he is prohibited from carrying out the procedure he helped pioneer and that thus far has saved bodies and lives. He wants to present his case in the court of public opinion to see if the women of this land after reading about his quest believe justice was carried out or not. Did anyone ever ask how the patients were doing treated the Lavender Way/Procedure using all FDA approved modalities? Sacrificing America's Women Part 2 is the story of how he came up with the idea of using Tamoxifen in a large-scale clinical trial and his visits to the erstwhile USSR and Chernobyl, the White House, and Congressional hearings. it's a story that made him feel like James Bond and Huck Finn. Oh by the way his idea of using Tamoxifen for prevention was summarily dismissed by many noted researchers. The Government spent 68 million based on his idea and Tamoxifen became the first drug to be FDA approved for breast cancer prevention. It lowers the risk by 50%. At least he got something right to help untold thousands of women around the world to prevent breast cancer. It's a story of how your tax dollars are really spent and how disruptive ideas/people are dealt with.

For the city’s first two hundred years, the story told at Washington DC’s symbolic center, the National Mall, was about triumphant American leaders. Since 1982, when the Vietnam Veterans Memorial was dedicated, the narrative has shifted to emphasize the memory of American wars. In the last thirty years, five significant war memorials have been built on, or very nearly on, the Mall. The Vietnam Veterans Memorial, the Korean War Veterans Memorial, the Women in Military Service for America Memorial, The National Japanese American Memorial to Patriotism During WWII, and the National World War II Memorial have not only transformed the physical space of the Mall but have also dramatically rewritten ideas about U.S. nationalism expressed there. In Sacrificing Soldiers on the National Mall, Kristin Ann Hass examines this war memorial boom, the debates about war and race and gender and patriotism that shaped the memorials, and the new narratives about the nature of American citizenship that they spawned. Sacrificing Soldiers on the National Mall explores the meanings we have made in exchange for the lives of our soldiers and asks if we have made good on our enormous responsibility to them.

In this rich interdisciplinary study, Hildegard Hoeller argues that nineteenth-century American culture was driven by and deeply occupied with the tension between gift and market exchange. Rooting her analysis in the period's fiction, she shows how American novelists from Hannah Foster to Frank Norris grappled with the role of the gift based on trust, social bonds, and faith in an increasingly capitalist culture based on self-interest, market transactions, and economic reason. Placing the notion of sacrifice at the center of her discussion, Hoeller taps into the poignant discourse of modes of exchange, revealing central tensions of American fiction and culture.

This book is a critical resource for understanding the relationship between gender, social policy and women’s activism in Latin America, with specific reference to Chile. Latin America’s mother-centered kinship system makes it an ideal field in which to study motherhood and maternalism—the ways in which motherhood becomes a public policy issue. As maternalism embraces and enhances gender differences, it has been criticized for deepening gender inequalities. Yet invoking motherhood continues to offer an effective strategy for advancing women’s living conditions and rights, and for women themselves to be present in the public sphere. In analyzing these important relationships, the contributors to this volume discuss maternal health, sexual and reproductive rights, labor programs, paid employment, women miners’ unionization, housing policies, environmental suffering, and LGBTQ intimate partner violence.

For those interested in democratic transition and consolidation, social movements, and gender politics, this volume is the most comprehensive, up-to-date, and probing analysis available of how women's groups are helping to reshape Latin America. The contributors document and assess the remarkable wave of women's political participation in Latin America over the past two decades. The first five case studies, on Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay, Chile, and Peru, examine the origins, evolution, and goals of women's organizations as they worked together to end authoritarian rule and elaborate how women's groups have adapted in the 1990s to the day-to-day realities of democratic politics. In the 1990s, the challenge has shifted from mobilizing opposition to the very different task of working with parties and government bureaucracies in order to maintain and implement their agendas. The chapters on Nicaragua and Mexico broaden our understanding of political transitions.Seven case studies vividly illustrate the variety of women's movements in the region, ranging from the communal-kitchens movements to human rights groups. Each author discusses the strategies and debates of the feminist movements in question and records their political successes and failures. Jaquette's introductory and concluding essays provide a comparative framework, highlighting the innovative ways in which Latin American women are making gender a political issue.

It is widely recognized that American culture is both exceptionally religious and exceptionally violent. Americans participate in religious communities in high numbers, yet American citizens also own guns at rates far beyond those of citizens in other industrialized nations. Since9/11, United States scholars have understandably discussed religious violence in terms of terrorist acts, a focus that follows United States policy. Yet, according to Jon Pahl, to identify religious violence only with terrorism fails to address the long history of American violence rooted in religion throughout the country’s history. In essence, Americans have found ways to consider blessed some very brutal attitudes and behaviors both domestically and globally. In Empire of Sacrifice, Pahl explains how both of these distinctive features of American culture work together by exploring how constructions along the lines of age, race, and gender have operated to centralize cultural power across American civil or cultural religions in ways that don’t always appear to be "religious" at all. Pahl traces the development of these forms of systemic violence throughout American history, using evidence from popular culture, including movies such as Rebel without a Cause and Reefer Madness and works of literature such as The Narrative of the Life of Frederick Douglass and The Handmaid's Tale, to illuminate historical events. Throughout, Pahl focuses an intense light on the complex and durable interactions between religion and violence in American history, from Puritan Boston to George W. Bush’s Baghdad.
