About this title: These exasperated yet hopeful accounts of emergency-room work detail the horror of treating the bullet-riddled bodies of the same teenagers month after month. Exasperated by the endless cycle murder and mayhem the doctors started an anti-violence education program in the schools. This book also contains angry accounts of the rise of tuberculosis, a disease long thought eliminated, as well as the tribulations of those who deal with AIDS, drug abuse, and other plagues of post-industrial society.
