MEDICINE STORIES: ESSAYS FOR RADICALS
First published in 1998, Medicine Stories is a collection of essays on the work of building social justice. The original eighteen essays examine trauma and oppression, historical memory, language , identity, nationalism and ecology, sustainable activism, and the deepest meaning of solidarity.
Written in six months, it quickly became my most widely read book, and continues to be used by activists and educators in many different movements.
The new edition has 21 new or deeply revised essays and came out in April 2019.
The Historian As Curandera is one of the widely taught essays from the original collection, and presents some of my thoughts on how to do radical historical research.
