Students will not need prior courses in medical anthropology to use this introductory book. Not only is it soundly based in the history of anthropological theory and method in general, its emphasis on inter-disciplinary and multidisciplinary topics such as race, gender, ethnicity, age and ableness connects the text with "real life" situations. Case studies and discussions with professional models round out the material and orient students to the realities of a career in this field.
