About the Book

Current and comprehensive, Health and Society brings together fourteen original chapters to provide a compelling interdisciplinary introduction to the field of health studies. Exploring the social, cultural, political, and cultural dimensions of health, illness, and health care, this text encourages students to examine how health and health care are socially and culturally constructed; what ideologies, principles, and powers underpin health and healthcare; and the future health challenges we face as a society.
