1 - 2 weeks availability
These original essays, which combine theoretical argument with empirical observation, constitute a state-of-the-art platform for future research in medical anthropology. Ranging in time and locale, the essays are based on research in historical and cultural settings. The contributors accept the notion that all knowledge is socially and culturally constructed and examine the contexts in which that knowledge is produced and practiced in medicine, psychiatry, epidemiology, and anthropology. Professionals in behavioral medicine, public health, and epidemiology as well as medical anthropologists will find their insights significant.
Shirley Lindenbaum is Professor of Anthropology at the Graduate Center, City University of New York and author of Kuru Sorcery (1979). Margaret Lock is Professor of Medical Anthopology at McGill University and author of East Asian Medicine in Urban Japan (California, 1980).
