Summary
Medical anthropologist and academic Finley (Veterans Affairs Medical Center, San Antonio, Texas, and U. of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio) reports findings of fieldwork conducted by the author in 2007 and 2008 investigating PTSD in veterans returning to the San Antonio area. Based on 20 months of interviews conducted by the author with some 133 veterans--from Vietnam as well as Iraq and Afghanistan--family members, clinicians, and other community members about war and trauma, the text examines the cultural, political, and historical influences shaping individual experiences of PTSD. Finley finds that the many ways that combat PTSD is understood in American life have a profound effect on how veterans understand their own symptoms, feel about their diagnosis, and make their decisions about coping and care seeking. Combining both an academic and narrative writing style, this timely work should be of interest to academics, researchers and mental health care professionals, as well as veterans, their families, and concerned general readers.
