From the Back Cover:

A Reader in Medical Anthropology: Theoretical Trajectories, Emergent Realities brings together essays that represent key themes in the vibrant field of medical anthropology: its theoretical legacy; phenomenologies of illness and narrative, body and experience; biological citizenship; the biotechnical embrace; the new medical biosciences; global health and medicine; postcolonial power relations and the humanitarian challenges of the contemporary world.

This ground-breaking reader brings together a vital set of theoretical traditions that are deftly responsive to emergent realities in clinical medicine, biomedical science, global health, humanitarian intervention, global politics, and everyday life.
