"The only comprehensive ethnographic and historical study of Latin American humoral tradition…It will have an immediate audience among Latin American ethnologists and among medical historians, and a wider audience of all medical anthropologists and Latin Americanists. It will be the center of debate among scholars concerned with humoral traditions." -- Charles Leslie of Emeritus Professor in the Center for Science and Culture, University of Delaware, Newark
