Written in an accessible, jargon-free language,Exploring Medical Anthropologyrs"s concise length leaves room for instructors to supplement it with monographs of their own choosing. Concrete cases and the authorrs"s personal research experiences are used to explain four of the discipliners"s most important insights: 1) that biology and culture matter equally in the human experience of disease, 2) that the political economy is a primary epidemiological factor, 3) that ethnography is an essential tool to understand human suffering due to disease, and 4) that medical anthropology can help to alleviate human suffering. An extensive glossary facilitates student learning of concepts and terms, while a list of suggested readings at the end of each chapter and an extensive bibliography encourage further exploration.
