About the Book

Featuring up-to-date examples, research, and contributions from leading Canadian scholars, Second Opinion introduces students to the theories and issues confronting health sociology in a comprehensive and straightforward manner. Designed to provide an alternative view of health and illness as social issues, this contributed text examines topics such as Indigenous health issues, citizenship, disability, and aging from a structural perspective. With discussions of the political economy woven throughout, and featuring voices from different areas of expertise, Second Opinion encourages students to think critically about issues by presenting a variety of viewpoints and including global comparisons that assist students in situating Canada within the global health perspective.

Readership: Students in Sociology of Health and Illness courses, generally taught at the second- and third-year level out of sociology departments at Canadian universities and colleges.
