Cultural Differences and Medical Care

Lyle Saunders

  • Born: 1907

This book is an important addition both to the list of general works about the culture of the Spanish-speaking people of the Southwest and to the study of medicine as a part of culture. Saunders presents the book as a general account of Spanish-American culture “to enable professional people who work with members of the Spanish-speaking group to have some insights into factors that may underlie some of their behavior.” He succeeds admirably.

Lyle Saunders is a sociologist and on the staff of the Department of Preventative Medicine of the University of Colorado School of Medicine.
