A Morning s Work
This highly praised book presents the most substantial selection of images yet published from the renowned Burns Archive. Over one hundred masterpieces of early medical photography are reproduced along with descriptive texts by Dr. Stanley Burns detailing the medical, sociological, and historical significance of the photographs. Dr. Burns is the author of numerous articles and books including Sleeping Beauty (1990). The rise of modern medicine parallels the development of photography as a documentary tool, and in this broad-based overview of the archive we sense the experimental state of both during the nineteenth century. As a document of the human condition, A Morning's Work shows the pain, suffering, joy, and fear of its subjects as they confront the camera and, we presume, their diagnoses. The hope and horror contained in these images mirror contemporary medicine's "miracles" and failures, and reflect the unchanging nature of the human experience.

I Shot the Buddha
A fiendishly clever mystery in which Dr. Siri and his friends investigate three interlocking murders--and the ungodly motives behind them Laos, 1979: Retired coroner Siri Paiboun and his wife, Madame Daeng, have never been able to turn away a misfit. As a result, they share their small Vientiane house with an assortment of homeless people, mendicants, and oddballs. One of these oddballs is Noo, a Buddhist monk, who rides out on his bicycle one day and never comes back, leaving only a cryptic note in the refrigerator: a plea to help a fellow monk escape across the Mekhong River to Thailand. Naturally, Siri can't turn down the adventure, and soon he and his friends find themselves running afoul of Lao secret service officers and famous spiritualists. Buddhism is a powerful influence on both morals and politics in Southeast Asia. In order to exonerate an innocent man, they will have to figure out who is cloaking terrible misdeeds in religiosity.
