"[This volume] is very well organized, overall, with a layout ideal for students and academics who are looking to collaborate with their colleagues in anthropology and public health. The chapter structures offer well thought out summaries; a helpful glossary is found in the back. Those curious about human action and inaction as sources of ill health will find adversity and risk’s impact on health clearly and vibrantly displayed through Panter-Brick and Fuentes’ bio-cultural investigation of unequal health outcomes." · Journal of the Bio-Social Society
"These are vibrant and important treatments of socio-cultural concepts in health that fit well into medical anthropology, but also go beyond that. Their contribution lies in reminding and refining how human health and biology are produced, perceived, and communicated in a deep social context that includes history, politics, economics, and current global culture, especially modern media.… The editors have brilliantly organized the volume." · Stephen T. McGarvey, Professor of Community Health and Anthropology, Brown University
