The third edition of this classic text in medical anthropology has been revised to reflect new developments in theory and research. In theory, it addresses new thinking about political ecology and critiques older theoretical approaches. AIDS is a prominent topic in this new edition, as are other timely issues such as disability, medical pluralism, and health care seeking behavior. The authors have also expanded the number of health profiles to include migrant worker health, famine in the Horn of Africa, and paleopathology in the southwestern United States.
