“A Companion to Medical Anthropology, edited by Pamela I. Erickson and Merrill Singer, is quite simply the best overview that is presently available in the field of medical anthropology in the early 21st century. The chapters brought together in this volume offers not only a definitive outline of an intellectual field, but also a clear sense of medical anthropology’s engagement with the world of policy, politics, and practice. This is significant social research at its very best.”
