One Blood offers a wealth of ethnographic material, skillfully using traditional Jamaican images and expressions to present a coherent and systematic depiction of the Jamaican body, of how it works and of how health is maintained. Sobo explains some of the more complex issues of medical anthropology in a clear and accessible fashion and shows how gender and kinship tensions are expressed through culturally constructed syndromes. The book explores the ways in which the body serves as a medium for the expression of ideas about the social and moral order. Childhood socializations and ideas about gender relations, kinship, social obligations, sorcery, and deceit are investigated in association with beliefs about nutrition, procreation, sexuality, cleanliness, bodily flow, and sickness.

In Hunter Is the Night, author Kozi Nasi presents her second collection of poetry, continuing on her path of storytelling through verse. These poetic episodes tell stories of her life, written with a mature voice and refined style, painting a wide range of emotional and spiritual states. In these deeply personal poems, Kozi does not shy away from vivid descriptions of intimate moments, pushing limits, putting her foot down, pointing her finger, and taking a stand to uphold her true feelings and principles. She portrays with ease the attentive lover, the close friend, the adoring granddaughter, the loyal partner in crime, the voice of reason, the seductress, the mother, the muse, the voyeur, and the self-critic with a flair for lessons learned. Hunter is the Night shares a bouquet of poems, cut and delivered fresh from Kozi Nasis garden of life stories old and new. TESTED Hanging by a single red hair from a very heavy cloud, humored by the thought of collisions being rather rare in the spacious sky; dont want to let go just yet, dont want to fall down, dont want to crash, the anticipated raindrop on the mouth of your grave.

To raise money for his daughter's school fees, Rafiki targets Manu's Hire Purchase shop for robbery. The shop owner, Manu Patel, can't believe anyone would want to rob him, let alone the guitar man everyone knows as Rafiki due to his happy and friendly disposition. Rafiki apologises for the robbery, but he is desperate enough to risk losing friends and going to prison for life. His wife is his life. Manu opens both the safe and the cash register to show he has no money at all. The shop is bankrupt and about to close down for good. His customers have disappeared without paying, the bank is on his case and his business partner, his brother Manish, wants to kill himself over their situation. Rafiki moved by their story, offers to help them find their debtors and collect the money they owe. The two men, former robber and victim, strike a deal. However, the details of their cooperation, including Rafiki's commission, are left so vague they can only lead to serious confrontation later. Manu's list of loan defaulters is a mile long and includes some of the town's poorest residents. Most of them have changed their residence, their names and IDs and gone underground. Besides, some of the jikos, fridges, TVs and radios they bought on credit have changed hands so many times it is impossible to track them down. Others have broken down and ended up on the garbage heap behind the house or been recycled by the garbage collectors. Some defaulters have since died, or don't want to be found. The rest have no money, but will not part with their appliances, and are ready to defend 'their' jikos, sofas and TVs with pangas and guard dogs. To make Rafiki's job more challenging, nearly all of his friends, their relatives and his relatives, including his mother-in-law, are on Manu's most wanted list. So is the Chief, and he has the power to have Rafiki arrested and detained without trial. Besides, now Laikipia women want to elect Rafiki's wife for county Governor. To get enough votes she must get Rafiki to quit his now notorious real job. Having found the first 'real job' of his life, Rafiki is reluctant to give it up.

The purpose of this book, says the author, is to show the effect of Indian medicinal practices on white civilization. Actually it achieves far more. It discusses Indian theories of disease and methods of combating disease and even goes into the question of which diseases were indigenous and which were brought to the Indian by the white man. It also lists Indian drugs that have won acceptance in the Pharmacopeia of the United States and the National Formulary. The influence of American Indian healing arts on the medicine and healing and pharmacology of the white man was considerable. For example, such drugs as insulin and penicillin were anticipated in rudimentary form by the aborigines. Coca leaves were used as narcotics by Peruvian Indians hundreds of years before Carl Koller first used cocaine as a local anesthetic in 1884. All together, about 170 medicines, mostly botanical, were contributed to the official compendia by Indians north of the Rio Grande, about 50 more coming from natives of the Latin-American and Caribbean regions. Impressions and attitudes of early explorers, settlers, physicians, botanists, and others regarding Indian curative practices are reported by geographical regions, with British, French, and Spanish colonies and the young United States separately treated. Indian theories of disease—sorcery, taboo violation, spirit intrusion, soul loss, unfulfilled dreams and desires, and so on -and shamanistic practices used to combat them are described. Methods of treating all kinds of injuries-from fractures to snakebite-and even surgery are included. The influence of Indian healing lore upon folk or domestic medicine, as well as on the "Indian doctors" and patent medicines, are discussed. For the convenience of the reader, an index of botanical names is provided, together with a wide variety of illustrations. The disproportionate attention that has been given to the superstitious and unscientific features of aboriginal medicine has tended to obscure its real contributions to American civilization.
