My Body My Choice: The Fight for Abortion Rights 9781459817128 $19.95 $15.96

Stevenson, Robin

Abortion is one of the most common of all medical procedures. But it is still stigmatized, and all too often people do not feel they can talk about their experiences. Making abortion illegal or hard to access doesn't make it any less common; it just makes it dangerous. Around the world, tens of thousands of women die from unsafe abortions every year. People who support abortion rights have been fighting hard to create a world in which the right to access safe and legal abortion services is guaranteed. The opposition to this has been intense and sometimes violent, and victories have been hard won. The long fight for abortion rights is being picked up by a new generation of courageous, creative and passionate activists. This book is about the history, and the future, of that fight.

Forest Talk: How Trees Communicate 9781541519770 $41.00 $32.80

Melissa Koch

Trees are essential. They provide water, shelter, and food for millions of plant and animal species, including humans. They deliver proven health benefits, and they capture and store carbon, which combats climate change. Yet trees are in trouble. Forests are struggling to adapt to climate change, and deforestation is a major threat. Recently, researchers and citizen scientists made the surprising revelation that trees communicate with each other through an underground system of soil fungi and other methods. Complex social networks help trees survive and thrive by transferring resources to each other, sending defense signals, communicating with their kin, and more. Meet the tree scientists and learn more of their fascinating discoveries.

Women in the Military: From Drill Sergeants to Fighter Pilots 9781541528123 $41.00 $32.80

Connie Goldsmith

In December 2015, the Pentagon changed a rule to allow American women to serve for the first time ever in front-line ground combat troops. Women have fulfilled many military roles throughout history, including nursing; driving ambulances; handling administrative duties; working as mechanics; and serving in the WASPs, WACs, WAVES, and SPARS. More recently women are flying jets, conducting surveillance, commanding naval ships, and now fighting on the front lines. Yet no matter their official title, they have faced devastating discrimination-from lack of advancement, economic inequity, and inadequate veteran support, to sexual harassment and rape. Meet the women who have served their country courageously and who are standing up for fairness in the US military.

Rock 9781422243763 $38.10 $30.48

James Jordan

In the 1950s, a new style of music called "rock and roll" blended the rhythm and blues (R&B) music played by black American artists with the sounds of traditional country and western music, gospel, folk music, and other genres. Since its creation, rock music has represented the spirit of young people, often reflecting them at their best: working to improve society, and also to have fun. From Elvis, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan to U2, the Foo Fighters, Imagine Dragons, and Panic! at the Disco, rock music has evolved and changed, but remains as vibrant as ever.

LGBTQ at Work: Your Personal and Working Life 9781422242780 $38.10 $30.48

Melissa Albright-Jenkins

Living as an LGBTQ individual is complicated, especially at work. You have rights, but you are not always protected when it comes to where you work. While same-sex couples can get married in all states, the laws that protect LGBTQ individuals in the workplace are not federally recognized. Fewer than half of the states have laws that protect LGBTQ workers, and several have laws that specifically prohibit this type of protection. Coming out at work is a personal choice but one that can have serious consequences in the wrong environment. Laws will continue to improve for LGBTQ individuals over time, and it's important to keep standing up for who you are, no matter what.

Fentanyl: The World's Deadliest Drug 9781422243794 $38.10 $30.48

Amy Sterling Casil

Fentanyl was developed as a drug that could relieve severe pain and assist doctors in performing complex surgeries. Due to its potent effects, fentanyl is often sold illegally as an ingredient in counterfeit opioid pills or mixed with heroin or cocaine. Because it is nearly impossible to gauge the strength of illegal fentanyl doses, tens of thousands of North Americans have overdosed on the drug in recent years. This book provides information about the effects of fentanyl and how it contributes to the ongoing opioid crisis. Opioids are psychoactive drugs derived from the opium poppy, such as heroin or morphine, or synthetic versions that mimic their effects, such as fentanyl or oxycodone.

Thousands of people die of drug overdoses each year. Many overdose deaths are caused by heroin, a potent opioid drug that is highly addictive and can cause serious long-term health problems.

This book provides information about the effects of heroin and how this illegal drug is contributing to the ongoing opioid crisis.

Treatments for Opioid Addiction 9781422243855 $38.10 $30.48

Amy Sterling Casil

Until the 1960s, when methadone was introduced to help heroin addicts overcome the painful symptoms of drug withdrawal, treatment for opioid addiction mainly involved quitting "cold turkey". Advances in the understanding of how opioids affect the central nervous system and body have led to more effective treatments that often combine medication with behavioural therapy and family support to promote long-lasting healing and recovery. There is hope for people addicted to opioids, although many experts feel that more treatment centers and education are needed. Opioids are psychoactive drugs derived from the opium poppy, such as heroin or morphine, or synthetic versions that mimic their effects, such as fentanyl or oxycodone.
