By Seth Rosenberg on December 10, 2004
Format: Paperback
I recently used Dr. Quinlan's book for a 100 level "global diversity" requirement for non-anthropology majors. Not only did the students respond well to the book, but also seemed to enjoy the reading better than classics by Chagnon and Lee. Her research focuses on home remedies and cultural notions of the body in a rural Caribbean village. Dr. Quinlan provides an excellent example of both qualitative and quantitative research at various levels of inquiry. Her writing style is professional, personal, and concise. I found the book particularly useful when discussing topics such as language and communication, gender, subsistence, and, of course, ethnomedicine. The book is also handy as a case-study in globalization. Dr. Quinlan's book illustrates and emphasizes the need to understand the balance and relationship between home remedies, folk medicine, and western bio-medical health care in an ever-shrinking world.

I read this book for an intro to Anthropology class and I loved it. I found it easy to read and understand. Dr. Quinlan's insights in to the culture were really interesting, too. I definitely recommend this for anyone interested in medical anthropology or Dominica.
