"A solid addition to medical anthropology, interdisciplinary by nature."--Darryl Stellmach "New Genetics and Society" (9/11/2015 12:00:00 AM)
"An assessment of disciplinary progress to date and potential next steps is rejuvenating, rewarding, and necessary. This excellent edited volume, Medical Anthropology at the Intersections, does just that.... [I]t will serve as a valuable learning tool for advanced undergraduate or graduate students. Even for those already familiar with the breadth and depth of each of the contributing scholars' writing, there is much to be gained from a close read of every chapter."--Vanessa M. Hildebrand "American Ethnologist"
"The breadth and scope with which the discipline's past and present are brought to, together by some of the field's most influential figures, qualify this volume as essential reading for medical anthropology graduate students at any stage, whether just beginning their training, preparing for comprehensive exams, or doing thesis work."--Laura L. Heinemann "Anthropos"
"The contributors have seriously pondered the future of medical anthropology, and their prescriptions are a thread that runs throughout the volume . . . scholars and practitioners in other disciplines will be given a strong grounding in the theoretical and substantive contexts from which medical anthropologists ask their questions."--Alexandra Widmer "Bulletin of the History of Medicine"
"A wonderful feat by an eminent group of scholars, this exhilarating book charts medical anthropology's diverse intellectual history and future challenges and shows why the field is so critical for anthropological theory and practice today."--João Biehl, author of Vita: Life in a Zone of Social Abandonment and Will to Live: AIDS Therapies and the Politics of Survival
"Imagining the future of medical anthropology, this collection vigorously conveys the theoretical roots of engaged social activisms committed to equity, rights, and sociopolitical change in mental health and humanitarianism, in feminist projects on technoscience and reproduction, and in initiatives related to HIV and sexuality."--Mary-Jo DelVecchio Good, coeditor of A Reader in Medical Anthropology: Theoretical Trajectories, Emergent Realities
