The Enculturated Gene:
Sickle Cell Health Politics and Biological Difference in West Africa
Duana Fullwiley

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"An important contribution to the social studies of science and critical medical anthropology, The Enculturated Gene offers an insightful perspective on and a sensitive understanding of the experiences and dilemmas of patients, doctors, and scientists dealing with sickle cell anemia in West Africa."--Didier Fassin, Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton

"Based on extensive ethnographic fieldwork, The Enculturated Gene admirably demonstrates how sickle cell disease forms new associations in and between the domains of biomedicine, biopolitics, and the everyday lives of sufferers. Fullwiley demonstrates that universalistic, biomedical concepts of disease have only limited value in understanding embodied, situated disease."--Stefan Beck, Humboldt University of Berlin
