Reviewer Needed: ‘Reimagining Global Health: An introduction’ (2013) by Paul Farmer et al

With the view to posting a special edition of the medical humanities in global health, expressions of interest are welcome to review ‘Reimagining global health’. The book has been pieced together by some of the most high profile and courageous academics working in this contested field (Farmer, Kim, Kleinman and Basilico).

‘Bringing toreimagining global healthgether the experience, perspective, and expertise of Paul Farmer, Jim Yong Kim, and Arthur Kleinman, and drawing on a course developed by their student Matthew Basilico, Reimagining Global Health provides an original, compelling introduction to the field of global health.

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.’

We are particularly keen to hear from students, academics and professionals working in the area of ‘global health’, as well as creative thinkers and writers from the wider online community.

If you would like to write a review on ‘Reimagining global health'(approximately 1,000-1,500 words in length), then please email our reviews editor with a short explanation of why you are well placed to review the book.
