Marilee Niehoff: published reviews of Lauar M. Ramirez: Keepers of the Children: Native American approaches to Parenting, and John Selby, Quiet Your Mind: An Easy-to-Use Guide to Ending Chronic Worry and Negative Thoughts and Living a Calmer Life, in the June/July issue of AHP Perspective, and of Philip Lee Miller, The Life Extension Revolution: The New Science of Growing Older Without Aging, in the October/November issue of AHP Perspective.


Steve Sachs: Hoping that the New Year brings a uniting of the opposites, for you and the world, in this very polarized time, with opportunities taken to transform the many breakdowns occurring into breakthroughs. For the good of the world and the country, it is especially important that positive changes take place in United States politics and policy in the year ahead. Among the issues that need to be properly addressed is the shift occurring in world power. The United States is declining economically (with not only jobs moving abroad, but with large numbers of U.S. firms being bought by foreign corporations, while U.S. governmental debt and imbalance of payments are increasing dangerously), and hence ultimately militarily and diplomatically, while China and other Asian nations are rising in economic, and hence military and diplomatic power. The Bush Administration has been resisting that decline in ways that sharply amplify it, while intensifying international conflict, increasing the likelihood of war. While the U.S. still has the resources to do so, it can enhance its position by taking collaborative approaches that creatively deal with the developing shift in world power, to create a more favorable future for the world, and hence for the U.S.
