The Racial Divide Here at Home

My policy as editor for The American Journal of Medicine (AJM) has been to avoid reviewing books despite the fact that we receive a number of courtesy copies of excellent volumes every month. Because we also receive many outstanding manuscripts, this policy preserves space for our clinical and scientific contributions. However, on a rare occasion, I have reviewed a remarkable book that has the potential to greatly influence public policy or clinical practice in the United States or beyond. So, I wish to call attention to a book that should have a major impact in the US, especially at a time when so many are working to sustain the recent progress made toward health equity in our country.
