Über diesen Titel


The announcement that BSE might cause a fatal human disease "Creutzfeldt-Jacob disease (CJD)" triggered enormous media attention, public alarm and government wrangling that threatened the future of European integration. As Scott Ratzan argues: "It is my belief that the [BSE crisis] represents a quintessential case that will go down in history as the Exxon Valdez Union Carbide's Bhopal accident, and other such cases of interdisciplinary study". This book offers lessons learned from the crisis, with contributions from experts with different viewpoints - veterinarians, Eurocrats, public relations experts, politicians, policy-makers, journalists and representatives of the beef industry. It also offers a compilation of the key reports from governmental bodies. as a case-study in policy-making, scientific/health discovery and dissemination of information, as well as looking at the issues from the perspective of psychology and media studies.

About the Author:

Scott C. Ratzan is Assistant Professor at Emerson College's Division of Communication Studies and Tufts University School of Medicine's Department of Family Medicine and Community Health. He is Editor in Chief of the Journal of Health Communication.

We have been selling academic and scholarly books in Cambridge since 1996. Today we occupy an old warehouse on Coldhams Road, adjacent to the railway tracks leading to Ely, not too far from the airport. The site is called Restwell House. We are an internet bookshop, but visitors are very welcome. Some drop off a few boxes of unwanted books, some pick up a book to save on the postage, some just drop by to get to know us, or want to take advantage of the many bargains on our wooden shelves bookshop, which is distinct from the internet stock offered on the web. Our mission has always been to find new homes for the books we are looking after. If we cannot sell them online, we offer them at very low prices to our visitors. We try to give you a serious and dedicated service which is focussed on the individuality of each single book: its condition, its origin, sometimes even its smell. You come to us for real books, not just instances of ISBNs.
