An Anthropology of Biomedicine is an exciting new introduction to biomedicine and its global implications. Focusing on the ways in which the application of biomedical technologies bring about radical changes to societies at large, cultural anthropologist Margaret Lock and her co-author physician and medical anthropologist Vinh-Kim Nguyen develop and integrate the thesis that the human body in health and illness is the elusive product of nature and culture that refuses to be pinned down.

It will be of enormous use to students and researchers concerned with the sociality of biomedicine for years to come, offering both an impressive coverage of subject matter and moments of original argumentation. (Sociology of Health & Illness, 2011)
"Beyond this, the book should provide a useful reference for social scientists working in areas related to the intersection of culture and biomedicine." (Choice , 1 April 2011)
