The Beating Heart details the determined efforts since the 1830s of Te Arawa tribes to work with the Crown and settlers to pursue a mutually advantageous relationship under the Treaty while at the same time maintaining their autonomy, culture, and control over their land and resources. While the ultimate outcomes were often calamitous for Te Arawa, the underlying theme of this book is highly positive. The tribes never ceased to struggle for a genuinely bicultural future. The book tells the story of the survival and resurgence of a dynamic people under circumstances that were often extreme and, as such, reflects the experiences of many other iwi in New Zealand today.

Heart disease is the number one cause of death and hospitalization in developed countries, and yet it is largely preventable. Think about that for a moment. How is that possible? What is required is good information. Did you know that more than half of those suffering from cardiovascular disease have cholesterol in the normal range? Would it surprise you to learn that the majority of cardiovascular events are attributed to blockages of less than fifty percent? Your arteries are a muscle not a pipe, therefore beating heart disease takes work, but it can be done. Diamond Fernandes is an authority on heart health, and in this book, he shares how you can navigate heart disease along with his five powerful pillars to preventing and reversing heart disease.

“Grandchildren meet their grandparents at the end,” Denise Low says, “as tragic figures. We remember their decline and deaths. . . . The story we see as grandchildren is like a garden covered by snow, just outlines visible.” Low brings to light deeply held secrets of Native ancestry as she recovers the life story of her Kansas grandfather, Frank Bruner (1889–1963). She remembers her childhood in Kansas, where her grandparents remained at a distance, personally and physically, from their grandchildren, despite living only a few miles away. As an adult, she comes to understand her grandfather’s Delaware (Lenape) legacy of persecution and heroic survival in the southern plains of the early 1900s, where the Ku Klux Klan attacked Native people along with other ethnic minorities. As a result of such experiences, the Bruner family fled to Kansas City and suppressed their non-European ancestry as completely as possible. As Low unravels this hidden family history of the Lenape diaspora, she discovers the lasting impact of trauma and substance abuse, the deep sense of loss and shame related to suppressed family emotions, and the power of collective memory. Low traveled extensively around Kansas, tracking family history until she understood her grandfather’s political activism and his healing heritage of connections to the land. In this moving exploration of her grandfather’s life, the former poet laureate of Kansas evokes the beauty of the Flint Hills grasslands, the hardships her grandfather endured, and the continued discovery of his teachings.

In the early days of cardiac surgery, but also in the following four decades, median sternotomy and cardiopulmonary bypass were nearly always included in cardiac surgical procedures. Less invasive surgical techniques were developed with the aim of reducing perioperative trauma without compromising the surgical result, and things became more complex for cardiac surgeons. They now often had to consider the surgical access of choice and whether cardiopulmonary bypass should be used or not. Since the mid 1990s, not only have several novel minimally invasive surgical techniques been presented, but also further refinements have been recommended from time to time. This work comes to fill a gap in the field of coronary artery bypass grafting and conduit harvesting in cardiac surgery, by gathering the mature version of such new, less invasive techniques combining safety, effectiveness, simplicity, sometimes even reducing procedural costs and that always for the patient’s and for the surgeon’s sake.
