The first in Hammer studios' long line of horror films. Awaiting execution in his dingy cell, Baron Victor Frankenstein (Peter Cushing) confides his story to a priest.

A book that will benefit everyone, especially those negotiating life-threatening diagnoses; their caregivers, family members and friends; and health care providers and their students. In ""Lessons from Joan"", Eric R. Kingson tells how his late wife's strength, warmth, humor, and love - and those of many people they met along the way - helped extend life and make it worth living. It is about the fear, hope, and intensity of their lives during the thirty-two months that followed Joan's cancer diagnosis and how Joan and her husband and children maintained their family life during this time. It is about some of the funny, moving and courageous things that happened along the way. And it is about what they did to access compassionate, state-of-the-art care, including aggressive interventions that provided hope and improved the quality of Joan's life. ""Lessons from Joan"" is not intended as a ""how-to"" book, but within its pages readers will find lessons and practical advice about how to deal with unexpected life-threatening illnesses.

Social Security in the 21st Century (Paperback): Eric R. Kingson, James H. Schulz Social Security in the 21st Century (Paperback)
Eric R. Kingson, James H. Schulz
R1,735 Discovery Miles 17 350 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Social security has proven to be one of the most successful programs in the United States. No other program has done more to transform old age or to protect family incomes against economic risks arising from the disability or death of a working family member. Polls consistently show strong support for Social Security, but these same polls also show that the public, especially the young, is skeptical about whether Social Security will be able to meet its obligations. The program's harshest opponents call it a "Ponzi scheme." Arguing that the young will be left "holding the bag," they call for a shift towards greater personal savings or means-testing. Experts agree that the aging of the baby boom, longer life expectancies, and a changing economy will impose new challenges. But seeing no impending disaster, they point to reforms that leave intact basic Social Security commitments and structure. Not surprisingly, the public is confused and has many unanswered questions.
Social Security in the 21st Century offers an introduction to the basic economic, demographic, and political aspects of social security, and addresses the questions most often asked regarding this subject. Featuring nationally recognized experts, the book presents clear, authoritative, and balanced discussions of contemporary Social Security issues, offering the historical background, concepts, statistics, and options necessary to make informed judgments about the program. These issues include the program's financial viability, its effects on the economy and the federal deficit, its consonance with American values, the adequacy of benefits for today's and tomorrow's old, its fairness to women and the young, disabilityreform and generational equity. It explains both the social insurance principles and political history related to the development of Social Security in the United States. The book avoids using technical jargon, making it ideal for a wide ranging audience including policymakers, teachers, journalists, students, and the general public. Special attention is given to the future and how Social Security can be changed to respond to the needs of generations to come.

Social Security and Medicare - A Policy Primer (Paperback): Edward D. Berkowitz, Eric Kingson Social Security and Medicare - A Policy Primer (Paperback)
Edward D. Berkowitz, Eric Kingson
R860 Discovery Miles 8 600 Ships in 7 - 11 working days

Social Security and Medicare are of compelling concern to virtually all Americans because they impact lives so enduringly and directly through the protection they afford and the costs they entail. It is, indeed, the extraordinary social welfare commitment these programs represent and their concomitant expense that provoke such determined support and such fiscal concern. Kingson and Berkowitz provide a thorough, balanced, and highly accessible explanation of Social Security and Medicare. They explain the dilemmas facing policymakers and describe, through historical development, how the programs evolved and their present status. The authors superbly convey the complexity of issues while also clearly presenting the factual information essential to the understanding and discussion. Such key considerations as the adequacy of protection, the financing problems, issues of fairness, the response to disability, and the health care needs of the elderly are particularly focused on--the authors' are sensitive to the social welfare nature of the programs. A truly essential book not only for the classroom but the offices and living rooms of writers, administrators, planners, policymakers, social service practitioners, and the general public.

A growing chorus of prominent voices in Congress and elsewhere are calling for the expansion of our Social Security system--people who know that Social Security will not "go broke" and does not add a penny to the national debt. "Social Security Works " will amplify these voices and offer a powerful antidote to the three-decade long, billionaire-funded campaign to make us believe that this vital institution is destined to collapse. It isn't.
From the Silent Generation to Baby Boomers, from Generation X to Millennials and Generation Z, we all have a stake in understanding the real story about Social Security. Critical to addressing the looming retirement crisis that will affect two- thirds of today's workers, Social Security is a powerful program that can help stop the collapse of the middle class, lessen the pressure squeezing families from all directions, and help end the upward redistribution of wealth that has resulted in perilous levels of inequality.
All Americans deserve to have dignified retirement years as well as an umbrella to protect them and their families in the event of disability or premature death. Sure to be a game-changer, "Social Security Works " cogently presents the issues and sets forth both an agenda and a political strategy that will benefit us all. At stake are our values and the kind of country we want for ourselves and for those that follow.
