Críticas:

"I enjoyed reading this book and feel I learned a great deal about the context in which elderly Chinese make health care decisions in a pluralistic medical system. The ethnographic data are extensive, illuminating, and conveyed in a very accessible fashion. There is very little available on the health care beliefs and practices of elderly Chinese in the United States, and Zibin Guo makes a valuable contribution to the literature." -- Charlotte Ikels, Case Western Reserve University "This is beautifully written ethnography, both good science and a delight to read. I felt as if I too were visiting with Zibin Guo's elderly Chinese friends and wanted to extend my stay. A major contribution to the literature on ethnic minority aging, culture, and health care." -- Sue Levkoff, Harvard University

Reseña del editor:

Navigating the maze of modern American health care is rarely easy; those who enter it are confronted with a dizzying array of specialists, practitioners, and clinics from which to choose, and are forced to make decisions regarding drugs and treatments about which they may know very little. For immigrants, finding their way can be difficult-especially for those to whom Western medicine is itself unfamiliar.In this engaging, accessible, and detail-rich book, Zibin Guo narrates elderly Chinese immigrants' response to contemporary American medicine. Traditional Chinese medicine emphasizes self-care and the medicinal value of foods and herbs; American doctors' responses to the ailments of their Chinese patients can seem impersonal and unnecessarily interventionist. Distrust, expense, and problems of communication and interpretation often frustrate both patient and practitioner.Guo paints a picture of a population that, despite its outward appearance of homogeneity, demonstrates a surprisingly wide variety of health-care knowledge, practice, and belief. Using case materials and interviews, he analyzes the blend of folk treatments and respect for Western science that coexist in the health care regimens of these elderly Chinese immigrants.
