Hi all, I've just submitted for proofing "Witches, Midwives and Nurses: A History of Women Healers" by Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English. It's been read through w/errors corrected, headers stripped, page numbers/chapter titles present, text/headings formatted. Should be an easy proof--only 109 pages. Description: As we watch another agonizing attempt to shift the future of health care in the United States, we are reminded of the longevity of this crisis, and how firmly entrenched we are in a system that doesn't work. Witches, Midwives, and Nurses, first published by The Feminist Press in 1973, is an essential book about the corruption of the medical establishment and its historic roots in witch hunters. In this new edition, Barbara Ehrenreich and Deirdre English have written an entirely new chapter that delves into the current fascination with and controversies about witches, exposing our fears and fantasies. They build on their classic expos on the demonization of women healers and the political and economic monopolization of medicine. This quick history brings us up-to-date, exploring today's changing attitudes toward childbirth, alternative medicine, and modern-day witches. Barbara Ehrenreichis author of theNew York TimesbestsellersNickel and DimedandBait and Switch, and, most recently,This Land is Their Land. Deirdre English, the former editor ofMother Jones, is a professor in the Graduate School of Journalism at the University of California, Berkeley.
