This paperback edition of an original 2009 publication provides a compelling look at the psychological and physiological effects of Gulf War Syndrome on US veterans. The work is divided into three sections discussing Gulf War Syndrome explanatory models, bodies and boundaries, and Gulf War Syndrome as a unique illness, and individual chapters explore a wide range of issues pertaining to veterans, relating to personal health, cultural representations of the disease, and the psychological tolls of suffering from a widely misunderstood condition. Kilshaw is a social anthropologist at University College London. (A[c] Book News, Inc., Portland, OR)
