Through the framework of understanding health inequalities as a 'wicked problem' the book develops an applied approach to researching, understanding and addressing them by drawing on complexity theory. Case studies illuminate the text, illustrating and discussing the issues in real life terms and enabling public health, health promotion and health policy students to understand and address the complexities of health inequalities.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"An absolute 'must read' for health-care practitioners and social scientists, this book makes a compelling case for 'the way forward' for policy makers." Brian Castellani, Kent State University
"An excellent overview of research on health inequality and measures to reduce them. The examples, while drawn mainly from the UK, have international relevance for the debate about 'what works' in tackling these inequalities." Sarah Curtis, FBA, Professor of Health and Risk, Durham University
"This is a very important book and a must-read for anyone interested in doing applied social science in today's political climate where evidence and complexity matter." Emma Uprichard, Warwick University
