Writer’s Voice with Francesca Rheannon
We talk with Leonard Rubenstein about his book Perilous Medicine: The Struggle to Protect Health Care from the Violence of War.
Military violence against hospitals, patients, and health workers has become a common feature of modern war. Think Kosovo, Yemen, Syria and Occupied Palestine. The attacks destroy lives. They also destroy the capacity of health systems to tend to those in need. Yet little is being done about this abomination. That’s why Leonard Rubenstein wrote the book Perilous Medicine. A human rights lawyer who’s investigated atrocities against health workers around the world, Rubenstein tells of the dangers health workers face during conflict and the legal, political, and moral struggle to protect them.
Then, Stan Cox connects the dots between climate chaos, racism and the next pandemic. We talk with him about his book, The Path to a Livable Future: A New Politics to Fight Climate Change, Racism, and the Next Pandemic.
In The Path to a Livable Future, Stan Cox makes plain the connections between the multiple crises facing us today and provides a vision for how to resolve them. He shows how we can work together to address the climate emergency, white supremacy, and our vulnerability to future pandemics all at once. Our future depends on it.
