"[This book] consists of nearly 50 chapters, some of which deal with classic medical humanities topics, such as the notions of health and disease and the theory of the body. The majority of the book centers on more contemporary--some would say postmodern--issues, such as gender and sexuality, disability, and aging. Recommended."-- "Choice"

"It's about time! The field of medical humanities has been waiting for a reader, and this one is it. With an excellent array of essays in appropriate topics by top people in the field, this book should set the standard for the next ten years. It will prove fascinating to undergraduates, graduate students in both the humanities and the health sciences, and to the general public and particularly those who are or will be patients--which of course is everyone."

--Lennard J. Davis "editor of The Disability Studies Reader"

"This bold, intelligent, and vitally comprehensive collection is a truly interdisciplinary achievement and an indispensible resource.Through twelve judiciously selected thematic clusters, Rutgers's
Health Humanities Reader consolidates this new subfield by capturing both the complexity and excitement of health humanities scholarship. An essential tool with practical applications both inside and outside the classroom."--Andrea Charise, PhD "assistant professor of health studies, University of Toronto, Scarborough"

"This is a landmark volume that sets the standard for any future collection in medical/health humanities. It is by turns authoritative, funny, edgy, creative and personal--sometimes all in one piece."
--Thomas R. Cole "Director, McGovern Center for Humanities and Ethics, University of Texas-Houston Medical School"

--This text refers to the paperback edition.
