One in Six Queenslanders Was Born at the Mater This extraordinary statistic gives some indication of the depth of the Mater's penetration into the Queensland community. But the Mater Mother's is only one of the seven hospitals in the Brisbane Mater group. Expressions of Mercy tells the lively story of the development of the Mater hospitals, beginning with the establishment of the first hospital in 1906. It is the story of the determined Sisters of Mercy, who set out to prove to the Queensland government that their hospitals could provide Queenslanders with medical services of the highest quality. The community never needed convincing: the Mater hospitals were always full. Today, with three public and four private hospitals, and an international reputation, the Mater cares for more than half a million patients each year. The fascinating story of the hospitals is told against a backdrop of social, political and medical changes, as well as changes in the Church and among the Sisters of Mercy. Featuring dozens of illustrations, Expressions of Mercy adds a new dimension to Queensland's medical history and will bring back memories to the millions of patients, nurses and doctors touched by the Mater's special approach to health care.

Americans and Britons are exposed to unedited texts, scripts, and speech from one another's dialects at an unprecedented and accelerating rate. Most people have no trouble understanding the general meaning of language in the other dialect, but readers and listeners very often fail to understand or misunderstand critical words, references, and allusions for lack of familiarity of the social and cultural contexts that underlie various usages. This book remedies this gap in understanding bycataloguing the differences that language users on either side of the Atlantic are likely to encounter in their dealings with the other dialect. By taking a culturally neutral stance it addresses the needs of both British and American readers and listeners. The thematic organization of the book allows the user to access language differences in various subject areas, where words likely to be needed at the same time can all be found together. Chapters include; Politics, Law, and Government; Business and Money; Medicine and Healthcare; Education; Food, Clothing, and Shelter; Transportation; Sports; and Profanity and Obscenity, in addition to basic information on orthography, weights and measures, etc. The appendices and extensive index provide a ready point of entry for quick look-ups, and there will be an extra chapter on Canadian, Australian, and Asian English.

Mary E. Richmond (1861-1928) was a contemporary of Jane Addams and an influential leader in the American charity organization movement. In this biography - the first in-depth study of Richmond's life and work - Elizabeth N. Agnew examines the contributions of this important, if hitherto under-valued, woman to the field of charity and to its development into professional social work.Orphaned at a young age and largely self-educated, Richmond initially entered charity work as a means of self-support, but came to play a vital role in transforming philanthropy - previously seen as a voluntary expression of individual altruism - into a valid, organized profession. Her career took her from charity organization leadership in Baltimore and Philadelphia to an executive position with the prestigious Russell Sage Foundation in New York City. Richmond's progressive civic philosophy of social work was largely informed by the social gospel movement. She strove to find practical applications of the teachings of Christianity in response to the social problems that accompanied rapid industrialization, urbanization, and poverty. At the same time, her tireless efforts and personal example as a woman created an appealing, if ambiguous, path for other professional women. A century later her legacy continues to echo in social work and welfare reform. .
