Volume 2, Differences and Inequalities explores the fundamental sociocultural, socioeconomic, and racial dimensions that shape health differences and inequalities. These include social and cultural influences on the meanings of health, illness, and disease; social factors in the development of biomedical knowledge and systems of care; and structural explanations for why some social groups experience disproportionate burdens of disease and difference in treatment. The Reader is essential reading for all medical students, physicians, and healthcare providers.
