Widespread awareness of emerging infectious diseases and global environmental change makes the ecological perspective of this premiere resource for medical anthropology as relevant as ever. Integrating biocultural, environmental, and evolutionary approaches to the study of human health, this fifth edition is now thoroughly revised to reflect new developments in the field. Research by human biologists and paleopathologists illuminates the history and prehistory of disease, while the work of cultural and applied anthropologists addresses contemporary health issues. The fifth edition features five new profiles by guest contributors, all leading researchers on health and environment. New and expanded topics include community health and disease prevention in urban America; waterborne disease in Ecuador; stress and demographic change in northern Siberia; participatory action research in Costa Rica; and HIV and AIDS in Africa.
