A New Dawn in Guatemala is a powerful collection of important, gripping and very possibly mind-changing essays about memory and vision, hope and healing in the Guatemalan highlands. At the center of these testimonies resonates a man from Kansas--Dr. Carroll Behrhorst--a fundamental physician who cultivated change through empowerment, found answers with the people to entrenched problems, and shaped an enduring model for health and community development among the rural poor peoples of the world. Ten papers, four by Mayan spokespersons and six by Behrhorst himself, bring to life the thirty years "Doc" devoted to health care development among the Maya-Kaqchikel of Guatemala. In addition, ten crosscultural essays are contributed by representatives of the hundreds of colleagues who, in various capacities, came to know, love and now to translate Behrhorst's teachings in many places of the world. Particularly important during this time of transformation in the U.S. health care system, the substantive contributions in A New Dawn in Guatemala will appeal to readers interested in expanding their knoweledge about health care.
