              In 1949 Francis Bacon found his main subject, the human body, and from then on it remained his principal theme. But he did not paint from life. Instead, he took from images from the mass media - newspapers, magazines, books, photos - and drew on them for his paintings.

              David Bailey was the model for the swinging playboy photographer in Michelangelo Antonioni's classic 1966 film, Blow-Up, Born in London in 1938, Bailey had, by 1960, become the first celebrity photographer--known especially for his revolutionary work for Vogue, and for the fact t...hat he socialized with actors, musicians and royalty. His many influential books include, Trouble and Strife (1980), Nudes (1984), If We Shadows (1991), The Lady Is a Tramp (1995) and Rock 'n' Roll Heroes (1997). Bailey's Box of Pin-Ups (1964)--a box of posters of London celebrities like Terence Stamp, The Beatles and the notorious East End gangsters, The Kray Twins--remains an extremely influential publication for its then-odd close cropping of the subjects' heads, which has since become a common technique in fashion photography, in order to give the illusion that the model is larger than life. In 1973, Bailey did all his major fashion shoots for British Vogue with actress and, at that time, occasional model, Anjelica Huston. This irresistible volume chronicles the duo's fiery photographic collaboration. The title, Is That So Kid, is borrowed from Huston's father, film director John Huston's, trademark retort.

              In the late 1960s, American society entered a period of rapidly accelerating social change. Certainty that U.S. vast scientific and technical capability would be able to find solutions to all problems began to turn to concern, as organizational efforts were unable to keep pace wi...th new developments in a variety of areas.The health field, with its focus on the well-being of individuals, felt the impact of these changes particularly strongly. Medicines became more focused on isolated health practices, as the patient's needs were attended to within groups of unrelated biological systems. The emerging thought represented in this collection pushes for the perception of health as a right rather than as something to be earned. It argues that deprivation of life-saving and life-fulfilling opportunities to any populations should not be tolerated. The editors also demand more awareness of the implications of isolated health activities and make the case for a comprehensive total health care system. Health is no longer just a biological function; quality of life is also a concern.First published in 1971 by administrators of health agencies, teachers, and health personnel, this work presents perspectives on problems and interpretations of forces and issues that are of continuing importance to health administrators. The emphasis on the need to focus on the whole patient rather than just their illness, and on providing them with a good life, not just a disease free one, is still as valid today as it was when this volume was initially published.
