Power and Powerlessness, by Susan Rosenthal
Susan Rosenthal, a doctor of both medicine and mental health, argues in this book that powerlessness and inequality is the root cause of most ill health. She reached this conclusion after decades of research, observation, and activism. This book explains that most people lack the healthy, fulfilling lives they deserve because they are kept powerless and mistakenly accept this state of affairs as natural or self-inflicted. Written for a popular audience, it asks, and then answers, four basic questions:
- What’s going on?
- How did this happen?
- Why do we put up with it?
- What will it take?
