The present study is located at the interface between classical social anthropology and medical anthropology. It takes the case of a traditional medical practitioner as the starting point for an ethnographic analysis of social change in a small community, but then leads back to the medical field by discussing its implications for the local delivery of health care. The study is comprised of three major parts, of which the first outlines and discusses the theoretical approach used in the later analysis. In the second part, the research process and its setting is described, including a short history of the Buddhist Dards in Ladakh . The third part, building on the first two, consists of the analysis of the amchiís social role, together with the oral history sections of the second, that makes use of the empirical data gathered in the field.Printed Pages: 183.
