Anthropology and Global Public Health
This series publishes books at the intersection of medical anthropology and global public health that use robust theoretical and ethnographic insights to develop practical public health solutions. Using accessible language to communicate complex global health problems, they examine concrete failures and successes in global health through an anthropological lens emphasizing historical, ecological, political, and sociocultural contexts. They also showcase leading methodological approaches, both qualitative and quantitative. The series publishes books in two formats: Tightly orchestrated edited volumes consisting of original writing by leading scholars advance major themes and methods and provide instructors with important new tools for integrating medical anthropology and global public health into the curricula of both disciplines. Short, single-authored books focused on a particular global health problem are constructed in three sections: a broad introduction to the problem and literature to date; a case study illustrating key issues and methods; and constructive solutions, including broader implications for application in public health programs.
