Pathologies of Power: Health, Human Rights, and the New War on the Poor by Paul Farmer
Pathologies of Power: Health, Human Rights, and the New War on the Poor

Lilyan, January 1, 2010

Having the experience of treating destitute, plague-ridden populations throughout the world would have given Paul Farmer enough to write a best selling book about. Instead, through the critical lens of applied medical anthropology and meticulous historical analysis, he has delivered a devastating indictment against the perpetrators of structural violence, articulating the root causes of preventable sickness and premature death he bears witness to.
