James W. Hamilton
James Hamilton is a physician and writer living in Sante Fe, New Mexico. He has numerous articles in professional journals on clinical and theoretical subjects as well as in non-medical periodicals on various socio-political phenomena. He is also the author of Life and Art: The Creative Synthesis in Literature (Karnac, 2009).
Letters of The Times (Second edition, Beech River Books, 2010) consists of letters to the editor of the New York Times and other newspapers covering a wide range of events and issues from the mid-'60s to 2010. A number have been published, most have not. The material raises vital questions about the behavior of the press in a democracy, not the least how "the newspaper of record" determines editorially "without fear or favor" what news is fit to print and the emphasis to be placed upon a particular story.
