Release Date: 2016-03-15
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

Amy Fusselman's first two books, The Pharmacist's Mate and 8, weave surprising beauty out of diverse strands of personal reflection. Half memoir and half philosophical improvisation, each focuses loosely on a relationship with a man in the author's life: The Pharmacist's Mate with her recently deceased father, and 8 with "my pedophile" (as Fusselman painfully refers to her childhood assailant). Along the way, Fusselman covers sea shanties and artificial insemination, World War II and AC/DC, alternative healers and monster-truck videos. Fusselman's "wholly original epigrammatic style" (Vogue) "makes the world strange again, a place where dying and making life are equally mysterious and miraculous activities" (Time Out New York).

Release Date: 2015-01-13
Genre: Biography & Autobiography

"A fascinating and daresay essential meditation on childhood, parenthood, and the importance of wild spaces for those wild creatures known as kids."—Dave Eggers How fully can the world be explored when you are focused on trying not to die? This is the question that lies at the heart of Amy Fusselman’s Savage Park. America is the land of safety, of protecting children to make sure that nothing can possibly hurt them. But while on a trip to Tokyo with her family, Fusselman stumbled upon an adventure playground called Hanegi Playpark, where children sawed wood, hammered nails, and built open fires. Her conceptions of space, risk, and play were shattered. In asking us to reexamine fundamental ideas about our approaches to space and risk and how we pass these concepts down to our children, Fusselman also asks us to look at the world in a different way. Perhaps it isn’t variety, but fear that is the spice of life. This startling revelation is at the heart of Savage Park, and will make readers look at the world in a whole new way. “I yield to no one in my admiration for Amy Fusselman’s work. Her new book, Savage Park, further explores with astonishing power, eloquence, precision, and acid humor her obsessive, necessary theme: the gossamer-thin separation between life and death.” —David Shields, author of Reality Hunger “In this unusually refreshing meditation (which reads like a novel), we are given a tour of the space around and within us. With poetic efficiency Amy Fusselman reveals what makes us savage or not; why secret, wild spaces are essential; and why playing should be taken seriously.” —Philippe Petit, high-wire artist

Leaping from ballet to quiltmaking, from the The Nutcracker to an Annie-B Parson interview, Idiophone is a strikingly original meditation on risk-taking and provocation in art and a unabashedly honest, funny, and intimate consideration of art-making in the context of motherhood, and motherhood in the context of addiction. Amy Fusselman’s compact, beautifully digressive essay feels both surprising and effortless, fueled by broad-ranging curiosity, and, fundamentally, joy.

ISBN: 0789016265
Release Date: 2004-05-07
Genre: Medical

Get an inside look at the lives of military and civilian pharmacists during wartime! Pharmacy in World War II is a comprehensive history of American pharmacy, both in the military and on the home front, from 1941 to 1945. The book provides a unique insight into the profession, the practice, and its practitioners through the memories of those who served as pharmacist mates, corpsmen, or civilian pharmacists. Through accounts recorded in publications, stored in archives, or told first-hand, you’ll learn about the fight to establish an Army Pharmacy Corps, the work of the Selective Service committees to preserve an adequate pool of pharmacists for civilian practice, the bond drives that would buy hospital airplanes and trains, and a great deal more. Pharmacy in World War II also looks at the organizational, economic, educational, professional, and societal issues that molded pharmacy during a watershed in modern American history. Author Dennis B. Worthen, editor-in-chief of Haworth’s Pharmaceutical Heritage book series, compiled a database of more than 11,000 pharmacists, pharmacy students, and veterans in pharmacy school during wartime as part of the “Memories Project” that recalls the activities of the professional, trade, and educational institutions of pharmacy, their goals and development, and their interactions, agreements, and differences. The book examines the fight for an Army Pharmacy Corps, shortages and rationing on the home front, manpower shortages, the impact of the Selective Service, and the prevalent attitude in the military that pharmacy was a business, not a learned profession, and that pharmaceutical services could be learned with 90 days of training. Pharmacy in World War II includes memories of: pharmacy in the pre-World War II years pharmacy education the Selective Service the drugstore’s role in the war effort the Pharmacy Corps returning veterans The book also includes photographs and images as well as appendices listing colleges and schools of pharmacy, Selective Service pharmacy advisory committees, pharmacy organizations and leaders, extracts from Army medical departments supply catalogs, and pharmacists and pharmacy students who died in the war. Pharmacy in World War II is an invaluable document for pharmacy students, practitioners, and educators, and for students of American history.

Green and Sustainable Pharmacy

Author: Klaus Kümmerer
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642051999
Release Date: 2010-06-16
Genre: Technology & Engineering

Within recent years pharmaceuticals have come into focus as contaminants of the environment (see for example Kümmerer, K. editor: Pharmaceuticals in the Environment). At the same time the issue of sustainable chemistry gained momentum. Bringing both together would result in sustainable pharmacy. Sustainable pharmacy is a totally new issue and approach. It addresses environmental, economical and social aspects of pharmacy. In the present stage the focus will be on environmental issues along the whole lifecycle of a pharmaceutical entity. That is dealing with resources and energy input but also with waste issues for example during the synthesis and production of an active pharmaceutical ingredient. Furthermore, it would also look on the compounds themselves and will aim to improve the degradability of the compounds after their use in the environment to reduce the environmental risk caused by pharmaceuticals in the environment. Another issue is the people using pharmaceuticals such as pharmacists, medical doctors and patients. How can they contribute to more efficient use of pharmaceuticals with less environmental burden and less risk for drinking water. The book "Sustainable Pharmacy" will address all these issues and will be the first one dealing with this important topic.
