The sensitive patient's healing guide : top experts offer new insights and treatments for environmental toxins, Lyme disease, and EMFs / Nathan, Neil

"This book is for the millions of struggling patients who have, through no fault of their own, become unusually sensitive to the normal stimuli of light, sound, touch, food, chemicals, and EMF, such that they can no longer tolerate those stimuli without significant suffering. This book will bring a new understanding of the neurology, physiology and biochemistry of what creates this kind of sensitivity, and the medical conditions that are most likely to set it off. Even more important, it lists the many new approaches to reducing and curing these sensitivities, based on newly obtained knowledge"--Publisher.

Pax : war and peace in Rome's golden age / Holland, Tom

The Pax Romana has long been shorthand for the empire's golden age. Stretching from Caledonia to Arabia, Rome ruled over a quarter of the world's population. It was the wealthiest and most formidable state in the history of humankind. Pax is a captivating narrative history of Rome at the height of its power. From the gilded capital to realms beyond the frontier, historian Tom Holland shows ancient Rome in all its glory: Nero's downfall, the destruction of Jerusalem and Pompeii, the building of the Colosseum and Hadrian's Wall, the conquests of Trajan. Vividly sketching the lives of Romans both ordinary and spectacular, from slaves to emperors, Holland shows that Roman peace was the fruit of unprecedented military violence.

Let this radicalize you : organizing and the revolution of reciprocal care / Kaba, Mariame

"What fuels and sustains activism and organizing when it feels like our worlds are collapsing? Let This Radicalize You is a practical and imaginative resource for activists and organizers building power in an era of destabilization and catastrophe. Longtime organizers and movement educators Mariame Kaba and Kelly Hayes examine some of the political lessons of the COVID-19 pandemic, including the convergence of mass protest and mass formations of mutual aid, and consider what this confluence of power can teach us about a future that will require mass acts of care, rescue and defense, in the face of both state violence and environmental disaster. The book is intended to aid and empower activists and organizers as they attempt to map their own journeys through the work of justice-making."--

Against erasure : a photographic memory of Palestine before the Nakba / Aranguren, Hugo Rayon

"This book tells the story, in both English and Arabic, of a land full of people -- people with families, hopes, dreams, and a deep connection to their home -- before Israel's establishment in 1948, known to Palestinians as the Nakba, or "catastrophe." Denying Palestinian existence has been a fundamental premise of Zionism, which has sought not only to hide this existence but also to erase its memory. But existence leaves traces, and the imprint of the Palestine that was remains, even in the absence of those expelled from their lands. It appears in the ruins of a village whose name no longer appears in the maps, in the drawing of a lost landscape, in the lyrics of a song, or in the photographs from a family album."--

Palestine speaks : narratives of life under occupation / Malek, Cate

The occupation of the West Bank and Gaza has been one of the world's most widely reported yet least understood human rights crises for over four decades. In this oral history collection, men and women from Palestine -- including a fisherman, a settlement administrator, and a marathon runner -- describe in their own words how their lives have been shaped by the historic crisis. Other narrators include: ABEER, a young journalist from Gaza City who launched her career by covering bombing raids on the Gaza Strip. IBTISAM, the director of a multi-faith children's center in the West Bank whose dream of starting a similar center in Gaza has so far been hindered by border closures. GHASSAN, an Arab-Christian physics professor and activist from Bethlehem who co-founded the International Solidarity Movement. For more than six decades, Israel and Palestine have been the global focal point of intractable conflict, one that has led to one of the world's most widely reported yet least understood human rights crises. In their own words, men and women from West Bank and Gaza describe how their lives have been shaped by the conflict. Here are stories that humanize the oft-ignored violations of human rights that occur daily in the occupied Palestinian territories.
