Anthropology of Infectious Disease, (PDF) synthesizes the thriving field of anthropology of infectious disease in a biocultural, critical framework. Expert medical anthropologist Merrill Singer holistically combines the behaviors of microorganisms and the activities of complex social systems, presenting how we exist with pathogenic agents of disease in a complicated process of co-evolution. He also links human diseases to larger ecosystems and numerous other species that are future sources of new human infections. Anthropology of Infectious Disease incorporates and advances research in this growing, multifaceted area and provides an ideal supplement to courses in public health, anthropology, development studies, and related fields.
