Reviews
"Drawing on traditional and nontraditional sources in philosophy and medicine, Drew Leder addresses structural injustices based on race, class, gender, and carceral status that so often impede the healing process. To mend the body, he maintains, we must also repair the sociopolitical worlds in which we dwell." --Gail Weiss, author of Body Images: Embodiment as Intercorporeality

"The Healing Body displays Drew Leder at the height of his powers: both erudite and attuned to the everyday, both expansive in scope and precise in practical insight. A powerful, necessary read for anyone interested in the relationship between embodiment and the good life." --Joel Michael Reynolds, author of The Life Worth Living: Disability, Pain, and Morality
