Ensnared by AIDS: Cultural Contexts of HIV/AIDS in Nep Author:David K. Beine
This book is written primarily for scholars of Nepal, other scholars such as anthropologists (especially medical anthropologists), social epidemiologists and public health professionals (especially health educators working with international NGOs) would also enjoy the topics covered. It may also be of theoretical and methodological interest more widely to cognitive anthropologists, cognitive linguists and psychological anthropologists because it explores the relationship between cognitive schemata and the creation of cultural models of meaning and provides a better understanding of how people incorporate new ideas into established cognitive systems.
It is the first long-term field study of the cultural dimensions of HIV/AIDS in South Asia. It is also one of the few ethnographies of HIV/AIDS to emphasize the depth and diversity of the people's view and construction of the emerging illness. And it is the only HIV/AIDS ethnography to utilize a discourse analysis (linguistic) approach.
