Impact of Birthing Practices on Breastfeeding, Second Edition examines the research and evidence connecting birth practices to breastfeeding outcomes. It takes an in-depth look at the post-birth experiences of the mother and baby, using the babys ability to breastfeed as the vehicle, the mothers lactation capacity as a factor, and the intact mother-baby dyad as the model to address birth practices that affect breastfeeding. The Second Edition has been completely revised to include new information on infant outcomes, including epidural anesthesia and Cesarean surgery, clinical strategies for helping the mother and baby recover from birth injuries, medications and complications, and information on the World Health Organizations Baby-Friendly Hospital Initiative with its Mother-Friendly Childbirth Module.

Reviews the World Bank's experience in industrial restructuring in 46 countries during the past 14 years. The study finds that for most completed public enterprise restructuring operations, sustainability of benefits was a large problem, mainly because of fragile sector reforms and inadequate governance and management. Those completed for the private sector experienced poor outcomes from inadequate attention to country economic conditions and policy distortions. To overcome such problems, the study recommends that future restructuring operations be designed and implemented to have an impact at the firm level.

The rate of breastfeeding in the United States has risen and fallen over time as a result of changing lifestyles and the availability of substitutes for human milk. However, since the 1970s the rates of breastfeeding initiation and duration have increased, in part due to the increasing medical evidence of the significant health benefits both to mothers and children. The federal government's Health Objectives for 2010 are for 75% of mothers to initiate breastfeeding at the time of birth and for 50% to continue breastfeeding until their infants reach 6 months of age. Current rates are about 69.5% at the time of hospital discharge and 32.5% at 6 months of age. The health benefits to the infant include the high nutritional quality of human milk, and a decrease in various infectious and other diseases of infancy that are reduced by the anti-microbial, anti-inflammatory and immunological-stimulating agents present. Mothers seem to benefit with a more rapid return to the pre-pregnancy state of their bodies, improved glucose and lipid metabolism, delayed ovulation, and the possible reduction of certain cancers. This new book examines the impact on health, employment and society, laws and government support of this important health action.

Alexandra Brewis and Gokarna Regmi document determinants of fertility in a Pacific Island population. There are two papers from a special symposium on Ageing and the Aged held within the meeting: George Broe and Helen Creasey consider some of the social issues associated with an ageing society, and Alan Hipkiss and colleagues take a biochemist's look at possibilities for extending the human life cycle.There are two additional papers. One by Alan Bittles documents consanguinity in the Middle East. The second, by Tsunehiko Hanihara and Hajime Ishida describes the results of their studies of Australian Aboriginals and neighbouring populations.?Understanding Ageing?, by Robin Holliday, Cambridge University Press is reviewed by Anne Mitchell.
