In this podcast, Professor Burlingame recommends a classic work of medical anthropology -- Brigitte Jordan's Birth in Four Cultures: A Crosscultural Investigation of Childbirth in Yucatan, Holland, Sweden and the United States. This book highlights how humans are biocultural using a common human rite of passage - birth. This book is a must read not only for those fascinated by medicine, birth and culture, but also by any person looking to understand themselves and their culture more fully. Listen to the tips that Professor Burlingame gives you in this podcast before you start reading.
