The Uses of Haiti i tells the truth about uncomfortable matters uncomfortable that is for the structures of power and the doctrinal framework that protects them from scrutiny It tells the truth about what has been happening in Haiti and the US role in its bitter fate i Noam Chomsky from the introduction br br In this third edition of the classic i The Uses of Haiti i Paul Farmer looks at what has happened to the health of the poor in Haiti since the coup br br Winner of a McArthur Genius Award b Paul Farmer b is a physician and anthropologist who has worked for years in Haiti where he serves as medical director of a hospital serving the rural poor He is the subject of the Tracy Kidder biography i Mountains Beyond Mountains i, Does the scientific theory that HIV came to North America from Haiti stem from underlying attitudes of racism and ethnocentrism in the United States rather than from hard evidence Anthropologist physician Paul Farmer answers in the affirmative with this the first full length ethnographic study of AIDS in a poor society, i Pathologies of Power i uses harrowing stories of life and death in extreme situations to interrogate our understanding of human rights Paul Farmer a physician and anthropologist with twenty years of experience working in Haiti Peru and Russia argues that promoting the social and economic rights of the world s poor is the most important human rights struggle of our times With passionate eyewitness accounts from the prisons of Russia and the beleaguered villages of Haiti and Chiapas this book links the lived experiences of individual victims to a broader analysis of structural violence Farmer challenges conventional thinking within human rights circles and exposes the relationships between political and economic injustice on one hand and the suffering and illness of the powerless on the other br br Farmer shows that the same social forces that give rise to epidemic diseases such as HIV and tuberculosis also sculpt risk for human rights violations He illustrates the ways that racism and gender inequality in the United States are embodied as disease and death Yet this book is far from a hopeless inventory of abuse Farmer s disturbing examples are linked to a guarded optimism that new medical and social technologies will develop in tandem with a more informed sense of social justice Otherwise he concludes we will be guilty of managing social inequality rather than addressing structural violence Farmer s urgent plea to think about human rights in the context of global public health and to consider critical issues of quality and access for the world s poor should be of fundamental concern to a world characterized by the bizarre proximity of surfeit and suffering, Bringing together the experience perspective and expertise of Paul Farmer Jim Yong Kim and Arthur Kleinman i Reimagining Global Health i provides an original compelling introduction to the field of global health Drawn from a Harvard course developed by their student Matthew Basilico this work provides an accessible and engaging framework for the study of global health Insisting on an approach that is historically deep and geographically broad the authors underline the importance of a transdisciplinary approach and offer a highly readable distillation of several historical and ethnographic perspectives of contemporary global health problems br br The case studies presented throughout i Reimagining Global Health i bring together ethnographic theoretical and historical perspectives into a wholly new and exciting investigation of global health The interdisciplinary approach outlined in this text should prove useful not only in schools of public health nursing and medicine but also in undergraduate and graduate classes in anthropology sociology political economy and history among others
