“It will be helpful for undergraduates and postgraduates; and it will also prove worthwhile to academics looking for readable explanations of issues outside of their specialization,” the authors write. — Royal Anthropological Institute Journal
“Because of its extensive coverage and distinguished group of writers, this volume will serve as an indispensable resource for all anthropologists and medical students working in the topic. Its wide coverage extends both to developing topics and those that are already well established in the field. — James Trostle, representing Trinity College
Simply put, “A Companion to Medical Anthropology,” which was edited by Pamela I. Erickson and Merrill Singer, is the best overview that is currently available in the field of medical anthropology in the early 21st century. This book was published under the title “A Companion to Medical Anthropology.” The chapters that have been collected together in this volume offer not only a comprehensive overview of an intellectual area, but also a distinct understanding of the engagement of medical anthropology with the realm of policy, politics, and practice. This exemplifies excellent practice in the field of substantial social research.
