Description

This revision of what now has become a classic text in medical anthropology contains a wealth of new material on subjects as diverse as aging, creativity, and ideology. It is both a comprehensive introduction to the rapidly growing field of medical anthropology and a reference work. The authors bring new perspectives to our understanding of both Western and non-Western medicine, from the biochemical and physiological aspects of health care in preindustrialized cultures to cultural and ideological factors inherent in past and present Western medical care.
