Mama Might be Better Off Dead : Failure of Health Care in Urban America


Description

This critically acclaimed book is an unsettling, profound look at the human face of health care. Both disturbing and illuminating, it is the story of four generations of a poor African American family coping with the devastating illnesses that are all too common in America's inner cities. From visits to emergency rooms and dialysis units, to trials with home care, to struggles for Medicaid eligibility, Abraham chronicles the Banes family and their access (or lack of access) to medical care. Embedded in the family narrative is a lucid analysis of the gaps, inconsistencies, and inequalities the poor face when they seek health care.

"Proportio" examines the ways in which we experience proportion in our lives and the complex universe in which we live. Proportion-not only a question of numbers, but of balance-emerges in this volume as a universal human pursuit. Throughout the course of known human history, the knowledge of proportions has been applied across civilizations for thousands of years. The sophisticated knowledge of sacred geometry was considered closely linked to secretive spiritual wisdom and religious traditions. This volume elegantly connects these ancient notions to works by artists such as Le Corbusier, Albrecht Dürer, Sol LeWitt, Anselm Kiefer, Tomas Saraceno, Marina Abramovi c, Anish Kapoor Mama Might be Better Off Dead : Failure of Health Care in Urban America download ebook and Michaël Borremans. Beautifully produced and presenting objects drawn from art, nature, physics, economics, history, science, music, medicine and many other sources, "Proportio" uncovers the natural patterns that are used to organize and create the material world.
