3Title:  Indigenous dance and dancing Indian: contested representation in the global era   
 Creator:  Krystal, Matthew. 
 Publication:  University Press of Colorado, Boulder, Colo, c2012. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (p. 293-306) and index. "Focusing on the enactment of identity in dance, Indigenous Dance and Dancing Indian is a cross-cultural, cross-ethnic, and cross-national comparison of indigenous dance practices. Considering four genres of dance in which indigenous people are represented--K'iche Maya traditional dance, powwow, folkloric dance, and dancing sports mascots--the book addresses both the ideational and behavioral dimensions of identity. Each dance is examined as a unique cultural expression in individual chapters, and then all are compared in the conclusion, where striking parallels and important divergences are revealed. Ultimately, Krystal describes how dancers and audiences work to construct and consume satisfying and meaningful identities through dance by either challenging social inequality or reinforcing the present social order. Detailed ethnographic work, thorough case studies, and an insightful narrative voice make Indigenous Dance and Dancing Indian a substantial addition to scholarly literature on dance in the Americas. It will be of interest to scholars of Native American studies, social sciences, and performing arts."--Jacket.

8Title:  Measuring the U.S. health care system: a cross-national comparison   
 Creator:  Anderson, Gerard F. | Squires, David A. | Commonwealth Fund 
 Publication:  Commonwealth Fund, New York, N.Y.], [2010] 
 Notes:  Title from title caption (viewed on Sept 29, 2010). "Issues in International Health Policy." "Commonwealth Fund pub. no. 1412, vol. 90." "June 2010." Includes bibliographical inferences (p. 9). The Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD) tracks and reports annually on more than 1,200 health system measures across 30 industrialized countries, ranging from population health status and nonmedical determinants of health to health care resources and utilization. Based on analysis of OECD health data from 2008, the United States continues to differ markedly from other countries on a number of health system measures. The U.S. has a comparatively low number of hospital beds and physicians per capita, and patients in the U.S. have fewer hospital and physician visits than most other countries. At the same time, spending per hospital visit is highest in the U.S., and American patients are among the most likely to receive procedures requiring complex technology. The nation now ranks in the bottom quartile in life expectancy among OECD countries and has seen the smallest improvement in this metric over the past 20 years.

10Title:  Pluralizing ethnography: comparison and representation in Maya cultures, histories, and identities   
 Creator:  Watanabe, John M. (John Mamoru), 1952- | Fischer, Edward F., 1966- 
 Publication:  School of American Research Press, James Currey, Santa Fe, N.M, Oxford [England], 2004. 
 Notes:  Includes bibliographical references (p. 301-342) and index. "This volume brings together eight Maya specialists and a prominent anthropological theorist as discussant to assess the contrasting historical circumstances and emerging cultural futures of Maya in Mexico and Guatemala. Rather than presume a romanticized, timeless Maya culture - or the globalized predicaments of transnationalized Maya imaginings - this seminar took its cue from contemporary Maya cultural activists who derive their enduring sense of Mayanness from a historical consciousness of five hundred years of cultural resilience. The contributors evaluate the history of Maya peoples and Maya anthropology by examining language, religion, political attitudes and activism, enthnographic traditions, and the relationship between economic change, migration, and cultural identity." "In comparing Maya peoples across Mexico and Guatemala, the contributors' emphasis on culture recovers intermediate linkages between the personal and the political, the local and the global. Their work enables a controlled cross-cultural comparison across national boundaries and histories that in turn illuminates the articulation between locally constructed meanings and global transformations."--BOOK JACKET.
