Public Health in Jamaica, 1850-1940 - Neglect, Philanthropy and Development (Paperback): Margaret Jones Public Health in Jamaica, 1850-1940 - Neglect, Philanthropy and Development (Paperback)
Margaret Jones
R762 Discovery Miles 7 620 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

Using a range of primary sources from imperial, colonial and local government records, Rockefeller Foundation Archives, memoirs and reports, this study provides the most comprehensive account to date of public health in Jamaica in the post-emancipation colonial period to the onset of the Second World War. The account is framed by two pivotal Jamaican experiences that were vital in precipitating significant policy changes at the imperial centre. An examination of the development of the part-time colonial medical service reveals it to be underresourced and inadequate. Most Jamaicans accessed Western medical aid through the Poor Law, a distinguishing feature of the British West Indian colonies, and the issues around the intermeshing of medical and Poor Law aid is a vital contextual question. Chapters on the epidemic and endemic diseases of smallpox and malaria expose the attitudes and the nature of the responses of government, elites and the medical services to such threats. The International Health Division of the Rockefeller Foundation was active in Jamaica from 1919 until 1950. A detailed analysis of their hookworm campaign, public health education programme and tuberculosis work contributes to a critical understanding of this philanthropic endeavour. The contribution of Jamaica to a new imperial development policy, as exemplified in the 1940 Colonial Development and Welfare Act, is also assessed. A story of government and elite reluctance to finance public health services emerges in which Jamaicans were frequently blamed for their own ill health. Socio-economic causation was sidestepped as class and race perceptions, underpinned by the legacy of slavery, held sway.

R373 Discovery Miles 3 730 Ships in 7 - 11 work days

This is the inspiring memoir of a woman raised within the cultural confines of a Midwestern Catholic upbringing in the 1940s and '50s, and her life's journey as her consciousness awakens. Her path takes her through the expectations of the church, a painful marriage with an undiagnosed bipolar husband, and her food addiction. Desperately looking for guidance and answers to her innermost questions, she encounters a series of "gurus"-bringing her unexpected but valuable lessons that she integrates along the way. And at the age of sixty-three, she begins to reinvent herself-and a beautiful, gratifying life of her own begins to unfold. Interwoven throughout her story are poems that deeply express her feelings in a way that the reader won't forget. This true story of a woman who learns to come to terms with herself, thereby opening the door to real freedom, will benefit readers of all ages.

Margaret Jones Bolsterli
R596 Discovery Miles 5 960 Ships in 12 - 17 work days

Things You Need to Hear gathers memories of Arkansans from all over the state with widely different backgrounds. In their own words, these people tell of the things they did growing up in the early twentieth century to get an education, what they ate, how they managed to get by during difficult times, how they amused themselves and earned a living, and much more. Some of Margaret Bolsterli's ""informants,"" as she calls them, are famous (Johnny Cash, Maya Angelou, Levon Helm, Joycelyn Elders), but many more are not. Their vivid personal stories have been taken from published works and from original interviews conducted by Bolsterli. All together, these tales preserve memories of ways of life that are compelling, entertaining, and certainly well worth remembering.

In 2005 Margaret Jones Bolsterli learned that her great-great-grandfather was a free mulatto named Jordan Chavis, who owned an antebellum plantation near Vicksburg, Mississippi. The news was a shock; Bolsterli had heard about the plantation in family stories told during her Arkansas Delta childhood, but Chavis's name and race had never been mentioned. With further exploration Bolsterli found that when Chavis's children crossed the Mississippi River between 1859 and 1875 for exile in Arkansas, they passed into the white world, leaving the family's racial history completely behind. Kaleidoscope is the story of this discovery, and it is the story, too, of the rise and fall of the Chavis fortunes in Mississippi, from the family's first appearance on a frontier farm in 1829 to ownership of over a thousand acres and the slaves to work them by 1860. Bolsterli learns that in the 1850s, when all free coloured people were ordered to leave Mississippi or be enslaved, Jordan Chavis's white neighbours successfully petitioned the legislature to allow him to remain, unmolested, even as three of his sons and a daughter moved to Arkansas and Illinois. She learns about the agility with which the old man balanced on a tightrope over chaos to survive the war and then take advantage of the opportunities of newly awarded citizenship during Reconstruction. The story ends with the family's loss of everything in the 1870s, after one of the exiled sons returns to Mississippi to serve in the Reconstruction legislature and a grandson attempts unsuccessfully to retain possession of the land. In Kaleidoscope, long-silenced truths are revealed, inviting questions about how attitudes toward race might have been different in the family and in America if the truth about this situation and thousands of others like it could have been told before.

In telling the story of five generations of her family and its farm in the Arkansas Delta, Margaret Jones Bolsterli brings together her own research, historical perspective, and family lore as it reaches her from the days of her great-grandfather down to her nephew. The result is a family saga that is at once universal and personal, historical and timeless. ""During Wind and Rain"" moves from the land's acquisition in 1848 through the Civil War and Reconstruction, the 1927 Flood, the Great Depression, and the drought of 1930 to the modern considerations of mechanization, fertilizer, pesticides, and irrigation. The transformation of dense swamp and forest to today's commercial agriculture is the story of two hundred acres worked by people sowing their fate with sweat, ingenuity, and luck.From the hoes of Bolsterli's great-grandfather Uriah's time to her nephew Casey's machinery capable of cultivating an acre in five minutes, ""During Wind and Rain"" poignantly portrays five generations of farmers motivated by dreams of ""a crop so good that the memory of it can warm the drafty floors of adversity for the rest of one's life.
