Bringing together the experience, perspective and expertise of Paul
Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Arthur Kleinman, Reimagining Global
Health provides an original, compelling introduction to the
field of global health. Drawn from a Harvard course developed by
their student Matthew Basilico, this work provides an accessible
and engaging framework for the study of global health. Insisting on
an approach that is historically deep and geographically broad, the
authors underline the importance of a transdisciplinary approach,
and offer a highly readable distillation of several historical and
ethnographic perspectives of contemporary global health problems.
The case studies presented throughout Reimagining Global
Health bring together ethnographic, theoretical, and
historical perspectives into a wholly new and exciting
investigation of global health. The interdisciplinary approach
outlined in this text should prove useful not only in schools of
public health, nursing, and medicine, but also in undergraduate and
graduate classes in anthropology, sociology, political economy, and
history, among others.
