Luc Sante's Low Life is a portrait of America's greatest city, the riotous and anarchic breeding ground of modernity. This is not the familiar saga of mansions, avenues, and robber barons, but the messy, turbulent, often murderous story of the city's slums; the teeming streets--scene of innumerable cons and crimes whose cramped and overcrowded housing is still a prominent feature of the cityscape. Low Life voyages through Manhattan from four different directions. Part One examines the actual topography of Manhattan from 1840 to 1919; Part Two, the era's opportunities for vice and entertainment--theaters and saloons, opium and cocaine dens, gambling and prostitution; Part Three investigates the forces of law and order which did and didn't work to contain the illegalities; Part Four counterposes the city's tides of revolt and idealism against the city as it actually was. Low Life provides an arresting and entertaining view of what New York was actually like in its salad days. But it's more than simpy a book about New York. It's one of the most provocative books about urban life ever written--an evocation of the mythology of the quintessential modern metropolis, which has much to say not only about New York's past but about the present and future of all cities.

A trip through Paris as it will never be again-dark and dank and poor and slapdash and truly bohemian Paris, the City of Light, the city of fine dining and seductive couture and intellectual hauteur, was until fairly recently always accompanied by its shadow: the city of the poor, the outcast, the criminal, the eccentric, the willfully nonconforming. In The Other Paris, Luc Sante gives us a panoramic view of that second metropolis, which has nearly vanished but whose traces are in the bricks and stones of the contemporary city, in the culture of France itself, and, by extension, throughout the world.Drawing on testimony from a great range of witnesses-from Balzac and Hugo to assorted boulevardiers, rabble-rousers, and tramps-Sante, whose thorough research is matched only by the vividness of his narration, takes the reader on a whirlwind tour. Richly illustrated with more than three hundred images, The Other Paris scuttles through the knotted streets of pre-Haussmann Paris, through the improvised accommodations of the original bohemians, through the whorehouses and dance halls and hobo shelters of the old city. A lively survey of labor conditions, prostitution, drinking, crime, and popular entertainment, and of the reporters, réaliste singers, pamphleteers, and poets who chronicled their evolution, The Other Paris is a book meant to upend the story of the French capital, to reclaim the city from the bons vivants and the speculators, and to hold a light to the works and lives of those expunged from its center by the forces of profit.

The acclaimed author of Low Life reinvents the memoir in a cunning, lyrical book that is at once a personal history and a meditation on the construction of identity. Born in Belgium but raised in New Jersey, Luc Sante transformed himself from a pious, timid Belgian boy into a loutish American adolescent, who eschewed French while fantasizing about the pop star Françoise Hardy. To show how this transformation came about--and why it remained incomplete--The Factory of Facts combines family anecdote and ancestral legend; detailed forays into Belgian history, language, and religion; and deft synopses of the American character. From the Trade Paperback edition.

Building Better Health Care Leadership for Canada explains the development and implementation of the Executive Training in Research Application (EXTRA) program. Managed and funded by the Canadian Health Services Research Foundation in partnership with the Canadian Medical Association, the Canadian Nursing Association, and the Canadian College of Health Care executives, EXTRA is a two-year national fellowship program that uses the principles of adult learning theory as well as practical projects to educate senior health care leaders in making more consistent use of research evidence in their management roles. Fellows apply the theory learned in residency sessions and educational activities to projects within their home organizations. The authors identify the imperative for better use of evidence, outline the core elements of the curriculum, and capture the real-world experience of regional leaders and fellows involved in making specific changes informed by research-based evidence within their organization. Contributors include Jean-Louis Denis (École nationale d'administration publique), Terrence Sullivan (Cancer Care Ontario), Owen Adams (Canadian Medical Association), Malcolm Anderson (Queen's University), Lynda Atack, Robert Bell (University Health Network), Sam G Campbell (Queen Elizabeth II Health Sciences Centre), Sylvie Cantin (Régie régionale de la santé et des services sociaux de la Montérégie), Ward Flemons (Calgary Health Region), Dorothy Forbes, J.

Qualité de vie liée a l'état de santé: critère d'évaluation

Après plusieurs décennies de recherche, le critère "qualité de vie liée à l'état de santé" est probablement à la croisée des chemins dans le domaine de l'évaluation thérapeutique. Il s'intègre dans le cadre plus large des "Patient-Reported Outcomes". En effet, l'évaluation par le patient lui-même de l'efficacité et de la tolérance des médicaments dans un nombre croissant de pathologies, notamment chroniques, apparaît essentielle. L'introduction précise et justifie les situations et pathologies dans lesquelles la mesure de la qualité de vie apporte une information qui ne peut être mesurée correctement par les critères d'évaluation habituels cliniques, biologiques ou physiologiques. La première partie du livre, rapporte l'état de la science quant à la définition et au développement des questionnaires de qualité de vie et des "Patient-Reported Outcomes". Elle précise les nécessités de l'adaptation culturelle et de la validation psychométrique des questionnaires dans le cadre d'essais cliniques internationaux. Elle rapporte les recommandations pratiques d'un groupe de travail multidisciplinaire (ERIQA, European Regulatory Issues on Quality of Life Assessment) sur la mesure de ces critères dans les essais cliniques. L'application de ces concepts est illustrée dans le domaine de la pathologie rhumatologique, par une revue des questionnaires génériques et spécifiques disponibles. La deuxième partie confronte les arguments des acteurs impliqués dans l'enregistrement du médicament: industriel, et représentants des Agences française et européenne (AFSSAPS, EMEA), et de la FDA américaine. Elle permet de mieux cerner les conditions dans lesquelles les autorités d'enregistrement peuvent accepter les études de qualité de vie. La lecture du livre laisse entrevoir, dès maintenant, une place centrale du patient dans les prises de décision thérapeutique. En dépit de leur approche parfois différente, tous les auteurs du livre emploient un même mot: celui de rigueur (méthodologique, logistique, d'analyse et d'interprétation). C'est à cette exigence que le critère qualité de vie gardera toute sa crédibilité scientifique.
