Compassionate Woman shares the captivating life of Patricia Locke, a Lakota Indian, who dedicated her life to righting injustices on behalf of indigenous peoples, as well as all of humanity. She was awarded the MacArthur Fellowship, was the first American Indian to serve as a senior officer on the National Spiritual Assembly of the Bahá'ís of the United States, and was posthumously inducted into the National Women's Hall of Fame. This fascinating biography of Patricia Locke, who was given the name Compassionate Woman, gives us a glimpse into the life of someone dedicated, to restoring justice and helping those in need. Her life of service began in Anchorage, Alaska, when she founded a community center aimed at assisting Native Americans, Eskimos, and Aleuts-who had moved to the city from villages-to cope with the many problems they encountered. She then went on to work for the Western Interstate Counsel for Higher Education, where she focused much of her energy on establishing colleges on Reservations. She was particularly concerned with improving education for American Indians, and worked hard toward advancing education on Reservations so that Native American culture and language could he woven into the curriculum. She also spent many years as a freelance writer, instructor at various universities, and activist on behalf of the poor and oppressed. Patricia Locke was wholeheartedly committed to serving the needs of others, and her indomitable spirit lives on through her legacy of service and loving compassion for all peoples of the world.

Peter Lutz, PhD, brilliantly traverses the major milestones along the evolutionary path of biomedicine from earliest recorded times to the dawn of the 20th century. With an engaging narrative that will have you turning "just one more page" well into the night, this book revealingly demonstrates just how the modern scientific method has been shaped by the past. Along the way the reader is treated to some delightfully obscure anecdotes and a treasure trove of rich illustrations that chronicle the tortuous history of biomedical developments, ranging from the bizarre and amusing to the downright macabre. The reader will also be introduced to the major ideas shaping contemporary physiology and the social context of its development, and also gain an understanding of how advances in biological science have occasionally been improperly used to satisfy momentary social or political needs.
