Rezensionen
"Overall, An Ethnography of Stress is a must read for anyone seeking to understand 'the' Aboriginal circumstance. I see myself returning to it over and again, since it is intellectually exciting, humanly confronting, and enlightening. Never idealizing Aboriginal life-worlds, it makes plain how 'deep' the wounds of marginalization and racism run and yet there is capacity for dynamic adaptation, which is needed on both sides of the intercultural fault line. As Burbank leaves us to ponder, what indigenous and non-indigenous Australians will have to marshal in order to achieve equality is 'mutual acknowledgment and dedication to a shared future.'" - Ute Eickelkamp, Oceania

"This is a brave, hugely original work on topics of global interest and significance. In its quiet, persistent way it lays out a wealth of ideas and richly detailed evidence that grip the reader, offering fresh views and new insights into old, established questions about social change, inequity, and health. I would like to see this book on the desks of anthropologists, epidemiologists, public health officials, physicians, social workers, and policy makers around the world." - Carol Worthman, Samuel Candler Dobbs Professor, Department of Anthropology, Emory University, USA

"Victoria Burbank is concerned with the human condition - not just what makes people from Numbulwar sick and die early, but what makes us all sick and die early. As a result, readers will learn as much about themselves and their own societies, as they do about Aboriginal people of Numbulwar. This is compelling reading for scholars, students, policy makers, or anyone wanting a serious examination of the parlous state of Aboriginal health and wellbeing." - Sherry Saggers, co-author of Aboriginal Health and Society and Dealing with Alcohol: Indigenous Usage in Australia, New Zealand & Canada
