Health by Peter Aggleton

$13.20

Quick Overview

A comprehensive, accessible introduction to the sociology of health and illness. Aggleton contrasts bio-medical and sociological perspectives, linking these with their implications for health care and policy.

Details

Written in a clear, accessible style, Health introduces students to the valuable contribution sociologists have made to understanding health, illness and disease. In so doing, it challenges the adequacy of biomedical models, contrasting them with explanations offered by positivist, interactionist, structuralist and feminist sociologists. Aggleton, an experienced teacher, links the key debates within the sociology of health and illness with their implications for health care, and covers topics such as complementary medicine and AIDS. Students are encouraged to undertake suggested activities and are given guidance for further reading to develop their understanding.
