Summary
This book provides data on contemporary mortality rates and patterns among several different American Indian tribes, especially the Navajos. The author details the economic and demographic history of the Navajo reservation from the late 19th century to the present. He analyszes the causes of death over the past century and shows that for tuberculosis and maternal mortality, medical interventions reduced mortality. The author also describes traditional Navajo beliefs regarding disease causation, patterns of utilization of traditional healers, and changes from Navajo religion to peyotism and Christianity. The use of hospitals and clinics since the 1920s is detailed. The author argues that the health care system has expanded the concept of disease to encompass all manner of human distress and as a result medicine assumes an acculturating role taht will have an impact on Navajo and other populations
