A. Baer, Ph.D.
Quoting Dr. Baer's Forward:
"This book is about human health in the East Malaysia state of Sarawak, located in Borneo. I have looked at the life of people in towns and villages on the one hand and, on the other, looked at the delivery of health services to them. I have looked at a complex 'inside' world.
"Since I am an outsider---both an academic and an American---what I have seen, noted, and written is just one interpretation. Because I am a biologist, my account may seem rather broad to some readers. My experience is based much more on the natural sciences and anthropology than on medicine or sociology...."
