I am a practicing physician, I belong to the National Writers Union, UAW Local 1981, and I am a founding member of International Health Workers for People Over Profit.

I am the author of Striking Flint: Genora (Johnson) Dollinger Remembers the 1936-1937 General Motors Sit-Down Strike (1996), Market Madness and Mental Illness (1998), POWER and Powerlessness (2006) and Class, Health and Health Care (2008).

My primary interest is uncovering how health is affected by social relationships. I have been writing and speaking on this subject for more than 30 years.

My articles are archived on this blog and also on Counterpunch, ZNet, Truthout, Coldtype and Dissident Voice.
I welcome your thoughts and comments.


To restore sanity to the world.
