Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

The vast majority of people consider it a high priority to minimize the extent of their interaction with the insect world. Homes are sealed, sprayed, and kept meticulously clean so as to reduce the probability that they will be invaded by insects; similarly, bodies are bathed, hair is shampooed, and clothing regularly washed in order to eliminate any unwanted contact with six-legged life forms. In the overwhelmingly vast majority of daily conversations, insects are conspicuous in their absence; those rare conversations in which insects feature prominently are generally carried out in guarded tones, often with a touch of embarrassment.

Book News Annotation:

Dreachslin (health policy and administration, Penn State U.) presents a five-part framework for the process of building a stronger health care organization through diversity. She assesses the current situation in the health care workforce, addresses the need for cultural audits within organizations, and offers specific prescriptions for transformation, showing managers and leaders how to foster diversity and develop pluralistic teams.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
