Health systems everywhere are experiencing rapid change in response to new threats to health, including from lifestyle diseases, risks of pandemic flu, and the global effects of climate change but health inequalities continue to widen. Such developments have profound implications for the future direction of public health policy and practice. The public health system in England offers a wide-ranging, provocative and accessible assessment of challenges confronting a public health system, exploring how its parameters have shifted and what the origins of dilemmas in public health practice are. The book will therefore appeal to public health professionals and students of health policy, potentially engaging them in political and social advocacy.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"...I have found this to be an enjoyable, informative and thought provoking read that I recommend to anyone for an introduction to the English public health system and how it has developed since 1974." David Edwards in Public Health Today
"An important new review of an old and intractable problem: our health system is incapable of keeping people healthy. This trenchant analysis must help to kick-start a radical shift in policy and practice." Anna Coote, New Economics Foundation
