About This Book

Critical Medical Anthropology presents inspiring work from scholars doingand engaging with ethnographic research in or fromLatin America, addressing themes that are central to contemporary Critical Medical Anthropology(CMA). This includes issues of inequality, embodiment of history, indigeneity, non-communicable diseases, gendered violence, migration, substance abuse, reproductive politics and judicialisation, as these relate to health.The collection of ethnographicallyinformed research, including original theoretical contributions, reconsiders thebroader relevance of CMA perspectives for addressing current global healthcare challenges from and of Latin America. It includes work spanning four countries in Latin America(Mexico, Brazil, Guatemala and Peru) as well as the trans-migratory contexts they connectand are defined by. By drawing on diverse social practices, it addresses challenges ofcentral relevance to medical anthropology and global health, including reproduction andmaternal health, sex work, rare and chronic diseases, the pharmaceutical industry andquestions of agency, political economy, identity, ethnicity, and human rights. 'Critical Medical Anthropology offers thought-provoking interventions to understandings of health, illness and healthcare. It extends a legacy of critical anthropological research, inviting and stimulating south-north dialogue, while generating inspiring new thinking at the intersections of health, social justice, human rights and political economy.'- Ciara Kierans, University of Liverpool
