    An Interdisciplinary Perspective

    Horacio Fabrega, Jr.

    "Concerned with the interface between medicine and social sciences, Fabrega addresses himself to the problems of conceptualizing diseases and our responses to it. In doing so, he provides a comprehensive survey and critique of previous approaches to the problems.... While of use to advanced undergraduates or medical students, its sophisticated theoretical analysis, its 28-page bibliography, and its comprehensive indexing should make it most valuable to graduate students and experts in the field."—Choice"Of great interest to all health professionals who participate in providing medical care to the ill... also of interest to anthropologists and sociologists interested in health problems and how they are managed and interpreted."—AAAS Science Books & Films
