Arthur McIvor and Ronald Johnston explore the experience of coal miners' lung diseases and the attempts at voluntary and legal control of dusty conditions in British mining from the late nineteenth century to the present. In this way, the book addresses the important issues of occupational health and safety within the mining industry; issues that have been severely neglected in studies of health and safety in general. The authors examine the prevalent diseases, notably pneumoconiosis, emphysema and bronchitis, and evaluate the roles of key players such as the doctors, management and employers, the state and the trade unions. Throughout the book, the integration of oral testimony helps to elucidate the attitudes of workers and victims of disease, their 'machismo' work culture and socialisation to very high levels of risk on the job, as well as how and why ideas and health mentalities changed over time. This research, taken together with extensive archive material, provides a unique perspective on the nature of work, industrial relations, the meaning of masculinity in the workplace and the wider social impact of industrial disease, disability and death. The effects of contracting dust disease are shown to result invariably in seriously prescribed lifestyles and encroaching isolation. The book will appeal to those working on the history of medicine, industrial relations, social history and business history as well as labour history.
This collection of literature attempts to compile many of the classic, timeless works that have stood the test of time and offer them at a reduced, affordable price, in an attractive volume so that everyone can enjoy them.
About the Book: Caregiving for aging parents is a physical and emotional reality currently facing a large number of the 30 million baby boomers in America. That Silver-Haired Daddy of Mine, based on a family caregiving approach developed by Daniel R. Tobin, M.D., and the staff of Care Support of America, presents eight activities that offer practical and pro-active guidance for middle aged people who are caregivers to their parents. This guide to coordinating the varied aspects of caregiving includes information about helping parents to remain safe in their home, understanding their medical treatment and health requirements, navigating insurance and other financial issues, dealing with the emotional issues that often arise, and finding ways to gain control of the process, improve the quality of life and create meaningful memories while caring for aging parents.
