Health -- Social identification -- Egypt -- Ethnology

Four anthropologists argue the relevance of bodily experiences and conditions to the understanding of social processes in Egypt. Using recent ethnography that describes beliefs and practices concerning infertility, beauty, and physical and spiritual health, the authors engage with issues of identity in both urban and rural Egyptian settings. Each study attempts to transcend the notions of viewing health and ill-health as simple physical experiences and to draw out their social and political significance.
