Review
Doody's : This second edition certainly has improved upon its predecessor. Its practical nature, clear photos, and comments following clinical cases provide practitioners with expert guidance as if the editor were physically present. Seldom does a book deliver what it promises; however, in this instance, it has and I feel it will become a standard for years. ----Weighted Numerical Score: 97 - 5 Stars!

From The New England Journal of Medicine, April 12, 2001
Because they frequently go undiagnosed or untreated, sexually transmitted infections remain a major public health problem, in spite of the existence of tools to control them. Now, with the increasing resistance to antibiotics of some of the sexually transmitted pathogens, windows of opportunity for the cost-effective control of sexually transmitted diseases are closing. Gonorrhea, for example, which could be treated easily with affordable penicillin and tetracycline during the 1960s, has remained unchecked in many countries, including those of sub-Saharan Africa. Today, with increasing resistance, the failure of treatment for gonorrhea with penicillin and tetracycline is high, the cost of treatment with second- and third-line antibiotics is beyond most national health budgets,...


No Magic Bullet

Jan 1987
Paperback
·
 
Book Description
From Victorian anxieties about syphilis to the current hysteria over herpes and AIDS, the history of venereal disease in America forces us to examine social attitudes as well as purely medical concerns. In No Magic Bullet, Allan M. Brandt recounts the various medical, military, and public
health responses that have arisen over the years--a broad spectrum that ranges from the incarceration of prostitutes during World War I to the establishment of required premarital blood tests.

Brandt demonstrates that Americans' concerns about venereal disease have centered around a set of social and cultural values related to sexuality, gender, ethnicity, and class. At the heart of our efforts to combat these infections, he argues, has been the tendency to view venereal disease as both a
punishment for sexual...

Sexually Transmitted Diseases : A Physician Tells You What You Need to Know (A Johns Hopkins Press Health Book)
Lisa Marr

May 1, 1998
Paperback
·
 
From Library Journal
Each year more than 12 million people in the United States contract a sexually transmitted disease (STD), even though AIDS has increased awareness of safer sex practices. The fact that many infected individuals are asymptomatic allows inadvertent transmission of those diseases. Marr, a physician specializing in the treatment of STDs, has written an excellent book that offers practical information on the prevention, diagnosis, and treatment of these infections. She begins with basic anatomy, symptoms, and the components of a medical examination for men and women. She then offers important advice about communications with sex partners and safe sex. The second part of her book discusses specific diseases and their symptoms, diagnosis, and treatment. Although The Sexually Transmitted Diseases Sourcebook (Omnigraphics,...

Epidemic : How Teen Sex is Killing Our Kids
Meg Meeker
089526143X
October 25, 2002
Hardcover
·
 
From Publishers Weekly
In this fact-filled but overheated report, pediatrician Meeker cites medical studies and her own clinical experience to argue that adolescent promiscuity has led to skyrocketing rates of sexually transmitted disease and increased depression and suicide among the young. Spicing up her statistics with obscene rap lyrics and lurid reports of teen orgies and the high school "craze" for oral sex, she blames the usual suspects: post-60s permissiveness, the misguided equating of condoms with safety and sexualized media imagery in, for example, Cosmopolitan and Ally McBeal. In opposition to a "conspiracy" of sex-ed "bureaucrats" to "maintain sexual freedoms rather than prevent disease," Meeker advocates teaching teens to "postpone sex as long as possible" and, when they don't, to reflower themselves as "secondary...


Venereal Disease And The Lewis And Clark Expedition
Edwin C. Bearss (Foreword), Thomas P. Lowry
0803229593
February 28, 2005
Hardcover
·
 
Book Description
One of the greatest challenges faced by William Clark and Meriwether Lewis on their 1804-6 Corps of Discovery expedition was that of medical emergencies on the trail. Without an attending physician, even routine ailments and injuries could have tragic consequences for the expedition's success and the safety of its members. Of these dangers, the most insidious and potentially devastating was the slow, painful, and oftentimes fatal ravage of venereal disease. Physician Thomas P. Lowry delves into the world of nineteenth-century medicine, uncovering the expedition's very real fear of venereal disease. Lewis and Clark knew they were unlikely to prevent their men from forming sexual liaisons on the trail, so they prepared for the consequences of encounters with potentially infected people, as well as the consequences of...

Book Description
Psychovenereology investigates the psychological factors in human disease (i.e. personality and lifestyle) and their effect on the rate of contraction of sexually transmitted diseases. It also describes the associated illnesses among people who contract sexually related disease and how social mores affect the individual's perception of the disease and how that perception, in turn, affects compliance with treatment. The book also addresses the whole chain of events ranging from high-risk behavior and its psychological determinants to the direct causes of infections and their psychological implications. Concentrating on the homosexual male, this book describes the growing field of psychovenereology and suggests educational and preventative techniques which can help break the psychological patterns of infection related...
