Summary

The Education of an Idealist: A Memoir by Samantha Power: Conversation Starters 

The Education of an Idealist, Samantha Power’s memoir, is an intriguing and honest book that begins with Power’s life journey as an Irish immigrant to the United States into becoming President Obama’s human rights adviser. She shared her experiences working as a war respondent to the Balkans and her influential views being the youngest United States’ ambassador to the United Nations.  The memoir described how Power’s idealistic attitude stayed intact despite the realities of the political world. Now, with the book’s release, Power’s efforts to bring a different kind of United States’ foreign policy that could help people speak about what’s not good is shown.
Samantha Power’s The Education of an Idealist is the New York Times, Wall Street Journal, and USA Today’s bestseller. This was published on September 10, 2019, by HarperCollins, with imprints from Dey Street Books.

  • Under the Strain of Color - Harlem's Lafargue Clinic and the Promise of an Antiracist Psychiatry - cover

    Under the Strain of Color -...

    In Under the Strain of Color, Gabriel N. Mendes recaptures the history of a largely forgotten New York City institution that embodied new ways of thinking about mental health, race, and the substance of citizenship. Harlem’s Lafargue Mental Hygiene Clinic was founded in 1946 as both a practical response to the need for low-cost psychotherapy and counseling for black residents (many of whom were recent migrants to the city) and a model for nationwide efforts to address racial disparities in the provision of mental health care in the United States. The result of a collaboration among the psychiatrist and social critic Dr. Fredric Wertham, the writer Richard Wright, and the clergyman Rev. Shelton Hale Bishop, the clinic emerged in the context of a widespread American concern with the mental health of its citizens. It proved to be more radical than any other contemporary therapeutic institution, however, by incorporating the psychosocial significance of antiblack racism and class oppression into its approach to diagnosis and therapy. Mendes shows the Lafargue Clinic to have been simultaneously a scientific and political gambit, challenging both a racist mental health care system and supposedly color-blind psychiatrists who failed to consider the consequences of oppression in their assessment and treatment of African American patients. Employing the methods of oral history, archival research, textual analysis, and critical race philosophy, Under the Strain of Color contributes to a growing body of scholarship that highlights the interlocking relationships among biomedicine, institutional racism, structural violence, and community health activism.

    When police raided the Women’s Medical Society, they thought that they were putting an end to a pill mill that was the largest supplier of illicit prescription painkillers in Philadelphia.   But once inside, police made the grisly discovery that Kermit Gosnell’s medical office was something much worse.Police seized the bodies of 47 aborted babies – all with mysterious wounds across the backs of their necks.  They soon realized they had uncovered a “House of Horrors” where babies were routinely born alive during very late-term abortions amid unspeakable squalor, only to be brutally murdered.Cheryl Sullenger attended Gosnell’s murder trial in Philadelphia in the spring of 2013. She relates shocking eye-witness revelations from the often-emotional testimony. And based on over three decades of experience researching abortion industry abuses, Sullenger also provides disturbing evidence that proves Gosnell is not alone.

    The View from the Vue

    “We called it THE VUE, and without a doubt, that was the most complimentary nickname Bellevue Hospital ever had.” So begins The View from the Vue, an “entertaining, colorful recall” (Publishers Weekly) of life a half-century ago at New York City’s medical court of last resort.   Between 1959 and 1965, Dr. Larry Karp served as medical student, intern, and resident physician at Bellevue. During these six years, he came to know and understand the people who wended their way through the dingy hallways and roach-infested subterranean passages, and inhabited the sparsely furnished wards of the fabulous hospital whose origins date back to 1811. It’s not surprising that Dr. Karp has never been able to forget The Vue. Writing in a style both human and humorous, he recalls some of the astonishingly funny and dramatic events he lived through, involving bizarre patients and grotesque working conditions. In the process, he gives us a clear picture of what it was like at Bellevue in the early sixties . . . for both doctors and patients.
