Through multi-site, multi-media, and multi-language ethnographic and historical research, the author demonstrates that during the twentieth century, as the mainstream definition of Americanness changed from whiteness to assimilation and to ethnic diversity, the meaning of being Chinese evolved. Jinzhao Li demonstrates the shifts that occurred from non-assimilation in the 1910s and Americanization in the 1930s to exoticization in the 1950s-1960s, pan-ethnicization in the 1970s, and localization in the 1990s and 2000s. She focuses on the transformation and self-representation of the Chinese American community through its biggest annual events. Different from many contemporary studies of U.S. ethnic festivals and beauty contests that adopt a white/non-white analytical binary, this book proposes a colonial settler-indigenous triangular model in understanding U.S. racial relations and ethnic self-representation.
The Side Effects of Drugs Annual was first published in 1977. It has been published continuously since then, as a yearly update to the encyclopaedic volume Meyler's Side Effects of Drugs. Each new Annual provides clinicians and medical investigators with a reliable and critical yearly survey of new data and trends in the area of Adverse Drug Reactions and Interactions. An international team of specialists have contributed to the Annuals by selecting from each year's publications all that is truly new and informative, by critically interpreting it, and by pointing out whatever is misleading. The use of the book is enhanced by separate indexes, allowing the reader to enter the text via the drug name, adverse effect, or drug interaction. Special features of the Annuals are the Side Effects of Drugs Essay, usually written by a guest author, and the special reviews: short articles, within the different chapters, that give extra attention to topics of current interest. The Essay in Annual 27 is entitled 'The General Practice Research Database' (by Dr. H. Jick) and there is a Historical Essay entitled 'Louis Lewin - Meyler's Predecessor' (by Dr. J.K. Aronson). The special reviews in this volume include, among others: The effects of NSAIDs on blood pressure Risks of inhaled corticosteroids in children Leukotriene receptor antagonists and Churg-Strauss syndrome Amiodarone and thyroid disease Surveillance of adverse events following immunization Smallpox vaccination Safety aspects of folic acid Inhibitors of topoisomerase I and topoisomerase II Liver damage from kava kava
Festival of Friends and Foes takes us on a wild ride of good friends and strange assurances. Ethan, Camille and Jeremy plan on enjoying a fun weekend festival called Beltane with their families and other children with similar gifts. Thinking that this would give them time to share some of their stories with each other and help Ethan understand more about his family. Little did they know there was more thrills and chills waiting for them than they could have ever expected. Out witting giant animals, possessed assassins and curious kids, the three friends learn that they will all have to work together to make it out of this weekend without going crazy. If it weren't for their new friend Gretchen they would probably have been in a world of trouble with their parents too.
