Biomedicalization and the Practice of Culture Studies in Social Medicine Allan M. Brandt, Larry R. Churchill, and Jonathan Oberlander, editors This series publishes books at the intersection of medicine, health, and society that further our understanding of how medicine and society shape one another historically, po­liti­cally, and ethically. The series is grounded in the convictions that medicine is a social science, that medicine is humanistic and cultural as well as biological, and that it should be studied as a social, po­liti­cal, ethical, and economic force.
