The Humanscale series is an important toolkit for everyone who designs for the human body. It incorporates the extensive amount of human engineering data compiled and organized by Henry Dreyfuss Associates throughout the twentieth century, including research of anthropologists, psychologists, scientists, human engineers, and medical experts.Originally published in 1974, Humanscale 1/2/3 consists of pictorial selectors equipped with rotary dials. This portfolio contains three selectors (two sides each) which present over 20,000 bits of information, encompassing anthropometry, guidelines for seating design, and requirements for the handicapped and elderly. Men, women, and children¿large and small¿¿are represented. Measurements are given in metric as well as English units.Engineers, architects, industrial designers, planners, interior and furniture designers, and craftsmen will find that the selectors minimize their searching through numerous and conflicting sources and unreliable information. The Humanscale materials are not a panacea, of course. More detailed studies dealing with interior space, safety, human strength and movement, displays, vision, reach, and controls should also be consulted. The selectors should be used in a creative way, and models and mock-ups based on the data should be tried out with the intended users.

Additionally, the authors explore complex chronic disease management, health promotion across the lifespan, and professional and legal issues such as reimbursement, billing, and the legal scope of practice. The Third Edition has a keen focus on gerontology to accommodate the AGNP specialty and to better assist the student or clinician in caring for the aging population. The authors follow the across the life span approach and focus on common complete disorders. Certain chapters have been revised and new chapters have been added which include:Health Maintenance for Older Adults; Frailty; Common Gerontology Syndromes; Cancer Survivorship; Lipid Disorders; Acne (pediatrics section). Please note that the 2016 CDC Guidelines for prescribing opioids for chronic pain in the United States were not yet available at the time the authors were updating the Third Edition.

The Prehistory of Iberia

Debating Early Social Stratification and the State

The origin and early development of social stratification is essentially an archaeological problem. The impressive advance of archaeological research has revealed that, first and foremost, the pre-eminence of stratified or class society in today’s world is the result of a long social struggle. This volume advances the archaeological study of social organisation in Prehistory, and more specifically the rise of social complexity in European Prehistory. Within the wider context of world Prehistory, in the last 30 years the subject of early social stratification and state formation has been a key subject on interest in Iberian Prehistory. This book illustrates the differing forms of resistances, the interplay between change and continuity, the multiple paths to and from social complexity, and the ‘failures’ of states to form in Prehistory. It also engages with broader questions, such as: when did social stratification appear in western European Prehistory? What factors contributed to its emergence and consolidation? What are the relationships between the notions of social complexity, social inequality, social stratification and statehood? And what are the archaeological indicators for the empirical analysis of these issues? Focusing on Iberia, but with a permanent connection to the wider geographical framework, this book presents, for the first time, a chronologically comprehensive, up-to-date approach to the issue of state formation in prehistoric Europe.

Em 1755, era editado em Lisboa um alvará real que coibia o uso do termo 'cabouclo' como denominativo dos filhos mestiços de casamentos entre brancos e índios. Nos 250 anos que se passaram desde a promulgação deste alvará, o nome caboclo, bem como a população a qual ele se refere, têm tido um papel ambíguo nas representações acadêmicas e leigas. Ora representadas como produto degenerado da colonização européia, ora como legítimos herdeiros do conhecimento milenar dos 'povos da floresta', as sociedades caboclas amazônicas têm sido repetidamente essencializadas. Embora a importância do papel das sociedades caboclas no cenário amazônico não seja mais questionada, ainda está longe de ser amplamente compreendida. É no rastro destas preocupações que apresentamos ao público brasileiro o livro 'Sociedades Caboclas Amazônicas'. São estudos de antropologia, história, ecologia, nutrição e saúde nos quais é possível não apenas vislumbrar os processos históricos que formaram esta grande parcela da população amazônica, mas também entender os contextos sociais, políticos e ecológicos nos quais as sociedades caboclas estão inseridas. Além de criar um espaço merecido para a discussão e a reflexão sobre um dos mais importantes e negligenciados segmentos da sociedade brasileira, esta coletânea representa uma instância única de exercício interdisciplinar. Desta forma, esperamos que este volume seja o início de uma nova tendência, que resultará no refinamento da nossa compreensão sobre as sociedades caboclas amazônicas em particular, bem como sobre os processos subjacentes à formação das sociedades humanas em geral.
