Medicine Stories: History, Culture and the Politics of Integrity

Medicine Stories: History, Culture and the Politics of Integrity Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

In Medicine Stories, Levins Morales writes lucidly about the complexities of social identity. Her lyrical meditations on ecology, children's liberation, sexuality, and history show how political transformation and personal healing are inextricably bound. Levins Morales is a survivor of childhood sexual abuse and was raised a Jewish "red diaper baby" in the mountains of Puerto Rico.

Synopsis:

Drawing vibrant connections between the colonization of whole nations, the health of the mountainsides and the abuse of individual women, children and men, Medicine Stories offers the paradigm of integrity as a political model to people who hunger for a world of justice, health and love.
