In Fallujah, a Hospital of Horrors

All at once, Nadhem Shokr al-Hadidi’s administration office becomes a little chamber of horrors. A baby with a hugely deformed mouth.

Doctors Propose Revisions to DSM Manual

What ends up (or doesn’t) in the DSM manual, otherwise known as the bible of psychiatry, can have a major impact on patients, doctors and, of course, Big Pharma.

Young Vietnamese Doctor’s Diary Becomes Bestseller

The author, a 27-year-old woman who was killed in 1970, wrote of “love, loneliness and death on the Ho Chi Minh Trail.” It has become an Anne Frank-like sensation in Vietnam. The universal nature of her themes is an incredible reminder of the folly of war and of demonizing our enemies.
