Review of Paul Farmer’s book

Canisius Professor of Theology James Keenan, S.J., vice provost for global engagement at BC, reviewed Fevers, Feuds, and Diamonds: Ebola and the Ravages of History by Dr. Paul Farmer. In his new book, Farmer, the renowned physician and anthropologist who founded Partners in Health, details his experience in West Africa during the 2014 Ebola epidemic. He relays harrowing stories of Ebola victims while tracing the region’s chronic health failures back to centuries of exploitation and injustice. Fr. Keenan calls Fevers, Feuds, and Diamonds “astonishing” and “unforgettable” and writes that “there is much wisdom throughout this magisterial work.” Read Fr. Keenan’s review of Dr. Farmer’s book in America magazine.
