Main description:

In The Moral Discourse of Health in Modern Cairo: Persons, Bodies, and Organs, Mohammed Tabishat uses anthropological descriptive methods and discourse analytic perspectives to focus on health care practices in a holistic fashion aimed at preserving and improving life in contemporary Cairo.
