Shark, executive director, Public Technology Institute; assistant professor, Rutgers University School of Public Affairs and Administration "In the local government sector there seem to be three schools of thought regarding social media: I've got a Facebook page—let's jump right in!, Not happening on my watch!, and Who cares?

Anatomia is the only medical textbook written in the Hawaiian language. Gerrit P. Judd, for a time the only medical missionary in the Islands, wrote the text in 1838 to teach basic anatomy to Hawaiians enrolled at the Missionary Seminary (Lahainaluna School). Armed with the fundamentals of Western medicine, Judd's students were sent out to minister to a native population that had been at the mercy of lethal infectious diseases since James Cook's arrival in 1778. Judd's use of Hawaiian terms and descriptions provides us with insights into native cultural and healing practices in the early decades of the nineteenth century. Anatomia is a valuable addition to the growing collection of translations on native health and will be greatly appreciated by linguists, historians, and students of Hawaiian language and culture.

Latter-Day Prophets Since 1844. This volume is the third of three& ;on Church History and the Doctrine and Covenants. It covers Church& ;history during the administration of all of its Prophet-Prophets since& ;Joseph Smith.

Then we follow events through the administrations of all of the 19th-Century, 20th-Century, and 21st-Century prophets from John Taylor to Thomas S. Monson. We become familiar with the early lives, missions, marriages, and callings of each of these prophets, seeing how the Lord prepared them for the particular time that they led the Church. We finish with a look toward the future as we await the Second Coming of our Lord.
