A broad overview of medical anthropology, including cultural analyses of health and disease, the social construction of sickness and health, and both Western (biomedical) and non-Western systems of healing. Addresses the cultural issues relevant to sickness and health care by exploring how the lens of medical anthropology may be used to understand culturally specific responses to life processes universal to all human societies. Topics include cross-cultural approaches to symbol and ritual, shamanism and spiritual forms of healing, the social construction of sickness and health, mental illness, and the health problems related to globalization.
