              The Making of Blind Men (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              The disability of blindness is a learned social role. The various attitudes and patterns of behavior that characterize people who are blind are not inherent in their condition but, rather, are acquired through ordinary processes of social learning. The Making of Blind Men is inte...nded as a systematic and integrated overview of the blindness problem in America. Dr. Scott chronicles which aspects of this problem are being dealt with by organizations for the blind and the effectiveness of this intervention system. He details the potential consequences of blind people becoming clients of blindness agencies by pointing out that many of the attitudes, behavior patterns, and qualities of character that have been assumed to be given to blind people by their condition are, in fact, products of socialization. As the self-concepts of blind men are generated by the same processes of socialization that shape us all, Dr. Scott puts forth the challenge of reforming the organized intervention system by critically evaluating the validity of blindness workers' assumptions about blindness and the blind. It is felt that an enlightened work force can then render the socialization process of the blind into a rational and deliberate force for positive change.

              Iconic images of medieval pilgrims, such as Chaucer's making their laborious way to Canterbury, conjure a distant time when faith was the only refuge of the ill and infirm, and thousands traveled great distances to pray for healing. This title examines accounts of miracle cures a...t medieval, early modern, and contemporary shrines.

              Why, in an age of advanced biotechnology and medicine, do millions still go on pilgrimages? Why do journeys to the shrines of important saints - such as Lourdes, Compostela, Fatima, and Medjugorie - constitute a major industry? The author explores these provocative questions and ...finds that pilgrimage continues to offer answers for many.

              Research into metal control in biological systems is undergoing rapid development. This new volume from the EIBC Book Series addresses how complex metal active sites are assembled and inserted into the metalloproteins that use them for catalysis. Metalloprotein Active Site Assemb...ly provides a comprehensive description of the essential biosynthetic pathways for assembly of active sites covering all of the major biological transition metal components (Mn, Fe, Co, Ni, Mo), as well as the other inorganic components (e.g., S trafficking) and organic cofactors (e.g., heme, siroheme, cobalamin, molybdopterin) that make up the patchwork of evolved biological catalytic sites. The book compares and contrasts the biosynthetic assembly of active sites involving all biological metals. This has never been done before since this is a relatively new, fast-developing area of research. Only within the past several years have the tools been available that allow these pathways to be revealed. The various pathways are at different levels of understanding; none have been completely defined, but we are just now at the stage of being able to make meaningful comparisons among the pathways. All these articles will be published as part of the Encyclopedia of Inorganic and Bioinorganic Chemistry: http://onlinelibrary.wiley.com/book/10.1002/9781119951438.

              All areas of (bio-) inorganic chemistry depend on various physical methods and instruments to characterize molecules and materials and their reactions. It is difficult, however, for newcomers to the field, and even experts in allied fields, to establish the utility of a given phy...sical method for the characterization of their particular system.
