Based on twenty years of clinical experience studying and treating chronic illness, a Harvard psychiatrist and anthropologist argues that diagnosing illness is an art tragically neglected by modern medical training, and presents a compelling case for bridging the gap between patient and doctor."From his experience of sorrow and suffering in east and west, Arthru Kleinman has given us all a blueprint for the restructuring of medical care...if physicians heed his advice, medical practice will be transformed for the better."--Howard Spiro, M.D., Yale University School of Medicine

"A touching and compassionate yet completely professional account of the psychological--indeed spiritual--dimensions of the doctorDpatient relationship that make the difference between fixing and healing."--Melvin Konner, M.D., Ph. D., author of "Becoming a Doctor"
