A people-centered approach to global health When People Come First critically assesses the expanding field of global health. It brings together an international and interdisciplinary group of scholars to address the medical, social, political, and economic dimensions of the global health enterprise through vivid case studies and bold conceptual work. The book demonstrates the crucial role of ethnography as an empirical lantern in global health, arguing for a more comprehensive, people-centered approach. Topics include the limits of technological quick fixes in disease control, the moral economy of global health science, the unexpected effects of massive treatment rollouts in resource-poor contexts, and how right-to-health activism coalesces with the increased influence of the pharmaceutical industry on health care. The contributors explore the altered landscapes left behind after programs scale up, break down, or move on. We learn that disease is really never just one thing, technology delivery does not equate with care, and biology and technology interact in ways we cannot always predict. The most effective solutions may well be found in people themselves, who consistently exceed the projections of experts and the medical-scientific, political, and humanitarian frameworks in which they are cast. When People Come First sets a new research agenda in global health and social theory and challenges us to rethink the relationships between care, rights, health, and economic futures.

This book is designed for college and High School age students who are considering work as missionaries in foreign countries. It is the result of 30 years work as a consultant to American students and volunteers who wish to provide spiritual and humanitarian services to people who face deprivation and hardships in countries listed as '3rd world countries'. The secondary purpose of this book is to present the authors view that American people should not see America as a nation, with its political and social values and laws as compatible with Biblical and spiritual teachings. The idea of 'Church and State' is not a Biblical concept.

The history of the Indian national movement deserves to be better studied and known than has been the case so far. It was marked by a great deal of heroism and sacrifice on the part of the Indian people. The fifteen essays included in this book deal with the problems of the national movement, constitutional development and political unity in India during the period of British rule. They bring out the uniqueness both of the Indian challenge and the British response to it.
