- In The Realm Of Hungry Ghosts Paper: You will prepare one independent writing assignment for submission in week eight. The assignment requires you to critically examine In the Realm of Hungry Ghosts. This is not a personal writing exercise; rather, it is a critical dissection of the book. In this assignment, you will answer the following questions:
- What was the central purpose, theme and main point of the book?
- How does the book diverge from evidence presented in class and the peer-reviewed literature?
- How does the book contribute to public discourse regarding medical sociology?
- Choose a passage from the book, that had a particularly strong impact on you and that illuminates one of the concepts above. Critically analyze this and what it means for the bigger picture.
This paper must be between 4-5 typewritten pages. I will grade this assignment based on completion, academic writing standards, comprehension of the literature, and ability to demonstrate critical thought.
