This is the enormously entertaining story of how a fraudulent surgeon made a fortune by inserting goats' testes into impotent American men. "Doctor" John Brinkley became a world renowned authority on sexual rejuvenation in the 1920s, with famous politicians and even royalty asking for his services. His nemesis was Dr. Morris Fishbein, editor of the Journal of the American Medical Association, but it took him fifteen years to destroy Brinkley in a dramatic courtroom showdown.

Stop the Violence in Latin America: A Look at Prevention from Cradle to Adulthood (Latin American Development Forum)

Stop the Violence in Latin America: A Look at Prevention from Cradle to Adulthood (Latin American Development Forum) by Laura Chioda
English | June 19, 2017 | ISBN: 1464806640 | 425 Pages | PDF | 13 MB

The Latin America and Caribbean (LAC) region has the undesirable distinction of being the world's most violent region, with 24.7 homicides per 100,000 inhabitants. The magnitude of the problem is staggering and persistent. Of the top 50 most violent cities in the world, 42 are in LAC. In 2010 alone, 142,302 people in LAC fell victim to homicide, representing 390 homicides per day and 4.06 homicides every 15 minutes. Crime disproportionately affects young men aged 20 to 24, whose homicide rate of 92 per 100,000 nearly quadruples that of the region.
Beyond Commodities: The Growth Challenge of Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin American Development Forum)

Beyond Commodities: The Growth Challenge of Latin America and the Caribbean (Latin American Development Forum) by Jorge Thompson Araujo
English | Nov. 9, 2016 | ISBN: 1464806586 | 191 Pages | PDF | 4 MB

Beyond Commodities shows that Latin America and the Caribbean’s growth performance over the last decade cannot be reduced to the commodity boom: growth-promoting reforms that strengthened financial development, increased trade openness and improved infrastructure development also played a significant role and can continue doing so. Based on the econometric analysis of panel data from the 1970-2010 period for 126 countries, the study shows that, while the commodity boom facilitated growth in most of the region, it did not determine it.
