Reviews

It will be helpful for undergraduates and postgraduates; and also proving worthwhile to academics looking for accessible summaries of areas outside their specialism.” — Journal of the Royal Anthropological Institute

With its comprehensive scope and accomplished contributors; this volume will be a key reference for all medical students and anthropologists of the field. Its comprehensive coverage extends both to emerging and dominant themes in the discipline.” — James Trostle; Trinity College

A Companion to Medical Anthropology; edited by Pamela I. Erickson and Merrill Singer; is quite simply the best overview that is presently available in the field of medical anthropology in the early 21st century. The chapters brought together in this volume offers not only a definitive outline of an intellectual field; but also a clear sense of medical anthropology’s engagement with the world of policy; politics; and practice. This is significant social research at its very best.”
Richard G. Parker; Columbia University
