Understanding the Sociology of Health, 3rd Edition is a truly 'readable' introduction to a subject which is often shrouded in jargon. Providing case studies and exercises to really get you thinking, this book shows how sociology provides the means to answer complex questions about health and illness, such as why health inequalities exist:

The 3rd edition includes four new chapters on

- history of health & healing

- sexuality

- sport, fitness & exercise

- death & dying

Though aimed primarily at students on health and social care courses and professions allied to medicine, this textbook provides valuable insights for anyone interested in the social aspects of health.
