Cambridge Studies in Medical Anthropology
Medical anthropology is the fastest growing specialist area within anthropology, both in North America and in Europe. Beginning as an applied field serving public health specialists, medical anthropology now provides a significant forum for many of the most urgent debates in anthropology and the humanities. It includes the study of medical institutions and health care in a variety of rich and poor societies, the investigation of the cultural construction of illness, and the analysis of ideas about the body, birth, maturation, ageing and death. Cambridge Studies in Medical Anthropology comprises theoretically innovative monographs and state-of-the-art edited collections. The series is complemented by Themes in Medical Anthropology, which presents short, concisely written books exploring key themes in the discipline (see main anthropology subject page for link).
