Link Roundup: Market-Driven Medicine, Judges Who Think, and Feminism and Conservatism

It has been a tremendously busy summer for our authors. The following are just a few of their major achievements from this week:

The Christian Science Monitor says that Charles Euchner, in his new book Nobody Turn Me Around: A People's History of the 1963 March on Washington, "does an excellent job of telling the lesser-known story of the internal contradictions that nearly destroyed the historic event."

Margaret Regan, author of The Death of Josseline, wrote for the Tucson Weekly about the increase in migrant deaths this summer on the borderlands of Mexico.

Although it isn't going to be published until April, Judge Nancy Gertner’s memoir In Defense of Women has already begun drawing attention: the Boston Globe posted this article, which drew responses from many legal blogs, including Above the Law.

Although it's unavailable online, there has already been lots of blog response to an article in the September issue of Mother Jones, in which Carl Elliott—author of the upcoming White Coat Black Hat: Adventures on the Dark Side of Medicine— calls out his own school for questionable ethics in medical research. Minnesota Post calls it "a disturbing tale." The New York Times Prescriptions blog said the article was recommended reading and a "withering critique."  A preview of the book and its author can be found on the blog The Periodic Table and an excerpt has recently been posted on the popular medical blog KevinMD. Finally, Elliott’s new book was listed as a New Book of Interest on the blog Hooked: Ethics, Medicine, and Pharma.

Fred Pearce, author of The Coming Population Crash, was quoted in a feature for Seed magazine on female empowerment, birth control, and the bust of the baby boom.

In the Washington Post, Rachel Dry draws on psychologist David Amodio's essay from the book Are We Born Racist? to explain the science behind racism and Dr. Laura's recent actions.  

In the American Spectator, Nathan Harden draws his own connections between feminism and pornography in an article about Gail Dines and her new book Pornland. The topic of pornography and racism was discussed on the Ms. Magazine blog and has already inspired quite a conversation.

Queeried includes Carlos Ball’s article from the Huffington Post on marriage equality and homophobia in their “5 Must Read LGBT Stories From Around The Internet.”
