Urban injustice : how ghettos happen by David Hilfiker( Book )

14 editions published between 2002 and 2003 in English and held by 789 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In Urban Injustice: How Ghettos Happen, Hilfiker presents a history of the inner city, an analysis of the social forces that made it inevitable, and a description of poverty programs since the New Deal that were more successful than most realize at attaining the goals set out for them - modest ones for the poor, more ambitious ones for the middle class and wealthy."--Jacket
Healing the wounds : a physician looks at his work by David Hilfiker( Book )

3 editions published between 1985 and 1987 in English and held by 46 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Healing the Wounds is the most revealing book ever written by a doctor about his own profession. In it, David Hilfiker breaks the silence surrounding the everyday practice of medicine and gives us a dramatically personal account of how the family doctor gets by in a world of spiraling information and high anxiety. Drawing on his years of rural and urban experience, Dr. Hilfiker lets us all know what it really feels like to be a doctor. What do you do when you make a serious medical mistake? Is it enjoyable to play God? What do you say to a patient who wants reassurance when the essence of diagnosis is uncertainty? What about money? What happens when your patient is taking forever, your waiting room's full, and you want to get home?"--Amazon.ca product desc. (2nd ed.)

2 editions published between 2009 and 2015 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Full Moon at Noontide is the story of Ann Putnam's mother and father and her father's identical twin, and how they lived together with their courage and their stumblings, as they made their way into old age and then into death. It's the story of the journey from one twin's death to the other, of what happened along the way, of what it means to lose the other who is also oneself. And it's the story of how Ann Putnam herself struggled to save them and could not, and how she dealt with the weight of guilt, of worrying that she had not done enough, said enough, stayed long enough for them all. How she learned that through this long journey all that was really needed was love
