Title: So Far Away: A Daughter’s Memoir of Life, Loss, and Love
Date of Publication: November 18, 2011
Publisher: Vanderbilt University Press
ISBN: 082651796X

“For me, part of the brilliance of So Far Away is that, wrapped up in the exquisitely well-described uniqueness of Hartmann’s story about her parents and herself, are substantial insights about anticipatory grief, grief following a parent’s death or decline, parent-child relationships at the end of life and after parents die, the links of personal grief to marital relationships, what can be accomplished by writing about parents and parent death, depression, and much more. And although the book is only about one family from one family member’s perspective, it offers fascinating insights about families in many areas, including lies and secrets in families, family communication, and what might be called ‘relationship traps.’ Another part of the brilliance of the book is that the author tunes in so well on her own thoughts and feelings, that it becomes a stimulating book about the psychology of fear, guilt, anger, love, duty, neediness, independence, memory, and obliviousness.” –Paul C. Rosenblatt, University of Minnesota

Title: Worst Case Bioethics: Death, Disaster, and Public Health
Date of Publication: March 1, 2010
Publisher: Oxford University Press
ISBN: 019539173X

“In short, Worst Case Bioethics offers a valuable consideration of how public health policy is sometimes shaped by fear in a counterproductive manner. The book is well written, well reasoned, and persuasive. I recommend it highly to all who are interested in bioethics, public health policy, or national security policy. Science Annas persuasively argues in Worst Case Bioethics that basing policy on extreme nightmare possibilities leads to a distortion of fundamental ethical principles and legal protections. Lancet Most readers interested in these topics will find this a creative and insightful rubric for examining different aspects of U.S. healthcare and law.” — Dr. R MacDougall, Saint Louis University
