Title Review

Showcasing the diversity in research methodologies used and the variety in themes/areas studied—this book is an anthology of 19 research oriented case studied undertaken by eminent anthropologists from all over India. Within the wider field of medical anthropology, these studies broadly deal with various diseases in relation to different sections of the people living under different socio-economic and geographical conditions. Physical growth, nutrition, health care system, stress management and obesity are other areas covered in these studies, which are mostly field survey based.
