In their pioneering book about an outstanding, committed country doctor, John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr .

In their pioneering book about an outstanding, committed country doctor, John Berger and photographer Jean Mohr provide a timely reminder of how unique, and valuable, British general practice i. It’s a collaborative work that blends John Berger’s text with Jean Mohr’s photographs in a series of superb analytical, sociological and philosophical reflections on the doctor’s role, the roots of cultural and intellectual deprivation and the motivations that drive medical practice. The subject of the book, John Sassall, emerges as an individual deeply committed to inner reflection as well as to his vocation as a physician.

A collection of interwoven stories, this is a portrait of two worlds - a small Alpine village bound to the earth and by tradition, and the restless, future-driven culture that will invade it - at their moment of collision. The instrument of entrapment is love. First published thirty years ago, A Fortunate Man remains moving and deeply relevant-no other book has offered such a close and passionate investigation of the roles doctors play in their society.

In A Seventh Man, John Berger and Jean Mohr come to grips with what it is to be a migrant worker-the material circumstances and the inner experience-and, in doing so, reveal how the migrant is not so much on the margins of modern life, but absolutely central to it. First published in 1975, this finely wrought exploration remains as urgent as ever, presenting a mode of living that pervades the countries of the West and yet is excluded from much of its culture. I admire and love John Berger’s books.

This book is a comparatively unknown work in Berger’s opus, but it is a classic. Berger also worked with photographer Jean Mohr on the more well-known _A Fortunate Man_ and _Another Way of Telling_. Here he says from the outset that “images and words should be read in their own terms” - that they make their own different statements and narratives. Still they enrich each other to tell of the situations of migrant workers in Europe in the mid-1970s. The analysis and even the photos do not feel dated even though this was before the disintegration of the former Yugoslavia. Berger writes to get inside the calculations that the migrant worker has to make in order to take the journey, and to live and work in a foreign land. He describes a very specific situation that is strictly male. There are many works now on gendered aspects of migration, which this book lacks, but it still has important things to say four decades after its first publication. It should make you think every time you look at the architecture of a modern European city or ride the subway to your next destination or buy nearly any industrially-made product - what is the invisible face of the person who actually built these things with their own hands?

This is by far the best book ever written about the experiences of migrant workers. It was written in 1975 about migrant workers in Europe, but it applies to migrants everywhere and is more relevant now than when it was written. Berger is best know for his books on "how to see" and art, but IMHO this is his best work. His passing today is very sad. RIP - Rest in peace and power.

John Berger is a master. I first read this book years ago but recently revisited it. While some of the facts are a bit dated, his analysis of the immagrant experience is a fresh as when he wrote it.
