Since the first edition of 'Culture, Health & Illness was published in 1984, medical anthropology has grown enormously - as have its applications to a variety of different health problems. During this time the philosophy has adopted a more globalapproach to human health problems and in many countries there has been an upsurge of interest in the subject. International agencies such as the World Health Organisation are now also showing a greater interest in medical anthropology.

From the Publisher:

Building on the success of the first two editions, the author has undertaken a complete revision of the book whilst retaining its readable style, and has also taken the opportunity to incorporate more detailed discussion of clinically applied medicalanthropology. Case histories from many different parts of the world have been included and there is new material in every chapter. The aim of this new edition of 'Culture, Health and Illness' is to provide an overview of a rapidly growing subject and to demonstrate how different cultural, social or ethnic groups explain the causes of ill health, the types of treatment they believe in, and to whom they would turn if they were ill. This book has become a recognised authority in its field and has beenadopted in over 25 countries as required reading for many courses. A wide range of health professionals including those working in family medicine, psychiatry, psychology, public health, nursing, nutrition and health education, as well as medicalanthropologists and medical students should find this an essential purchase.
