*'''[[Treating survivors of torture]]'''
In the 1980s and 1990s, an entire generation of health workers and activists in India were introduced to a new way of understanding structural health problems by reading Rakku's Story.  The book starts with the story of Rakku, a woman who struggles to feed and adequately care for her children and herself. It moves on to explore the structural factors that contribute to the family's ill-health. It ends with exploring 'political action for health justice'.
