Kennedy, Roger G.
"Historic Homes of Minnesota" is the engaging story of the evolution of architectural styles in Minnesota from 1830 to 1914 - from the influence of the early French traders along the Mississippi and St Croix to the emergence of the school of Frank Lloyd Wright. Through photographs and colourfully informative text, internationally known historian Roger Kennedy helps readers understand the unique styles of Minnesota's first homes, including the Mower House in Arcola, the first large house on the St. Croix; Alexander Ramsey's 'Mansion House' in St Paul, influenced by Pennsylvania Dutch virtues; the whimsical Charles C. Clement house in Fergus Falls, clearly Norse in spirit; and the Purcell House in Minneapolis, a fine example of the Prairie School design. On a broad plane, these architectural eras reflected social customs, politics, commerce, religion, and literature. On a personal level, they often revealed the national origin and character of the families that made the house a home. In short, this is in large measure a history of the people. Kennedy has considered their heritage and traditions as carefully as he has examined the architecture they created, and he offers a fresh, holistic approach to the study of our state's great houses.239pp.

There is increasing recognition that advances in medicine are only part of the answer to better health care. These advances, together with rising expectations of health care users, mean that demands on the way we organize and deliver services will become greater. It is therefore essential that we advance our understanding and knowledge of how best to organize and deliver health services. This book, written by experienced teachers and researchers, introduces research methods from a wide range of social science disciplines and applies them to health service research. Each chapter takes a different research method or approach and provides: theoretical background; a description of the method; advice on how to use it; relevant examples; a discussion of the limitations of the method; a list of further reading. Research methods covered include: epidemiology; organizational psychology; action research; political science/policy analysis; organizational economics; historical methods and operational research. This book also looks at the issues in synthesizing evidence from qualitative research and non-experimental quantitative studies. This is a reader for researchers, students and research funders and provides an appropriate text for the growing number of courses in the multidisciplinary field of health services research.N.B.Previous owner's signature on ffep.

Edited By Nilsson, Ingela
The intricate relationship between the erotic and the literary is a recurring theme in Western literature, with a starting-point in Plato's dialogues. Our need to talk, write, and read about love has resulted in a rich tradition, ranging from theoretical and philosophical discussions of Eros to love romance and poetry, clearly marked by the classical-heritage but continuously unfolding and rewriting itself. This present volume aims at providing both students and scholars with a series of discussions of this long tradition of reading and writing the erotic, seen from a number of different perspectives. A certain emphasis is placed on Classical Philology, but other contributors represent Byzantine studies, Iranian languages, History of ideas, and Comparative literature. 292pp.
