              This text brings the finds of the behavioural biology of group cooperation to bear on the vexatious problem of healthcare reform. It contends that a better system would be one that is compatible with human nature; not a perfect system, but better than the contemporary one.

              Appointed: An American Novel (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Appointed is a recently recovered novel written by William Anderson and Walter Stowers, two of the editors of the Detroit Plaindealer, a long-running and well-regarded African American newspaper of the late nineteenth century. Drawing heavily on nineteenth-century print culture, ...the authors tell the story of John Saunders, a college-educated black man living and working in Detroit. Through a bizarre Set of circumstances, Saunders befriends his white employer's son, Seth Stanley, and the two men form a lasting, cross-racial bond that leads them to travel together to the American South. On their journey, John shows Seth the harsh realities of American racism and instructs him in how he might take responsibility for alleviating the effects of racism in his own home and in the white world broadly. As a coauthored novel of frustrated ambition, cross-racial friendship, and the tragedy of lynching, Appointed represents a unique contribution to African American literary history. This is the first scholarly edition of Appointed, and it includes a collection of writings from the Plaindealer, the authors' short story "A Strange Freak of Fate", and an introduction that locates Appointed and its authors within the journalistic and literary currents of the United States in the late nineteenth century.
