Disease processes among American Indians and Alaska Natives often have distinct manifestations that need to be considered by clinicians and health policy makers involved with these populations. Equally important, all aspects of Indian life -- including health -- are governed by the special relationship between Indian tribes and the U.S. federal government. For American Indian Health, Everett R. Rhoades has gathered a distinguished group of scholars and practitioners to present a comprehensive assessment of the health of American Indian peoples today and the delivery of health services to them.
Dall'editore: "The volume fills a previously vacant niche for scholars, students, policymakers, and clinicians with regard to the health of American Indians and Alaska Natives. American Indian Health deserves a place on the shelf of anyone with a serious interest in this field, as it stands alone as a single-volume reference about health and health care of American Indians and Alaska Natives."—Jonathan R. Sugarman, Journal of the American Medical Association
"Well written and authoritative, and, in many parts, energetic and spirited. It provides excellent insights into the political and administrative arena of Indian health, as well as a review of some of the most important disease entities. In addition, it does so from a native perspective, blending in and emphasizing the cultural aspects of illness with the medical perspectives of those illnesses."—James M. Galloway, Lancet
"This very needed book gives an overview of the history and current state of American Indian health with an emphasis on the role of the Indian Health Service. The book is important reading for scholars and students of public health and Indian policy, and it offers valuable insights to those working in public health programs in the developing world. It is also a very useful text for courses in public health, sociology, and epidemiology."—Philip A. May, The University of New Mexico
