My book, To Heal Humankind: The Right to Health in History, was published by Routledge in July 2017.
Greg Grandin, Professor of History at New York University, author of The Empire of Necessity: Slavery, Freedom, and Deception in the New World, says:
I can’t imagine a more timely or urgent book. Adam Gaffney’s excellent To Heal Humankind is a sweeping account of a simple moral idea: that every human being deserves the right to live a healthy, dignified life. Gaffney is a medical doctor, yet he writes like a novelist and researches like an historian. This book will be required reading and will confirm Gaffney’s role as one of our most valued public voices.
I will also have three co-written chapters that will appear in a forthcoming book from Monthly Review Press, edited by Howard Waitzkin: Under the Knife: Beyond Capital in Health.
