JB WinSi's life has been filled with love and loss, joy and sorrow, vitality and sickness, and triumph and challenge. In fact, she has so many stories to tell, she couldn't choose just one. That's why she wrote two. "Healthcare Hell" invites readers within the nightmare she faced as a patient and caregiver, and her "Revelations of a Compelled Black Woman" brings you inside her dreams of a better life. The American healthcare system is broken. Too many are trapped without affordable, accessible, or even acceptable care. "Healthcare Hell" explores the tragedies and triumphs of those placed under the healthcare scalpel. JB's love for humanity drew her to work at hospice, where she had a front-row seat to the end-of-life journey and the ways the system failed its patients when they most needed it. And it was her love of justice that inspired her to share her thoughts on a system that needs its own miracle cure. At the many intersections of her life, she's embarked on more than her share of emotional odysseys. In her more reflective "Revelations of a Compelled Black Woman," she shares some of her life's most engaging, disturbing, amusing, and thought-provoking experiences. An award-winning community advocate, she served her fellow man as a volunteer, public speaker, and ordained minister. Despite it all, JB clings to a rock-solid faith that there are still miracles waiting for those who believe. Take heart. Your dreams are calling you forward!

Rights, Democracy, and Fulfillment in the Era of Identity Politics develops a critical theory of human rights and global democracy. Ingram both develops a theory of rights and applies it to a range of concrete and timely issues, such as the persistence of racism in contemporary American society; the emergence of so-called "whiteness theory;" the failure of identity politics; the tensions between emphases on antidiscrimination and affirmative action in the Americans With Disabilities Act of 1990; the great unresolved issues of workplace democracy; and the dilemmas of immigration policy for the U.S. and Europe.
