Through first-person accounts and the perspectives of literature, medicine, sociology, philosophy, religion, and the medical humanities, this book explores what it means to live with chronic illness on an everyday basis, as well as considering the implications of this experience for social policy, health care, bioethics, and the professions. The contributors are George J. Agich, David Barnard, Ronald A. Carson, Ruthanne L. Curry, John W. Douard, Sue E. Estroff, Muriel R. Gillick, Arthur Kleinman, Lonnie D. Kliever, and S. Kay Toombs.
