The SAGE Handbook of Social Studies in Health and Medicine 2nd Edition
With new chapters on key topics such as mental health, the environment, race, ethnicity and health, and pharmaceuticals, this new edition maintains its multidisciplinary framework and bridges the gap between health policy and the sociology of health. It builds upon the success of the first by encompassing a range of issues, studies, and disciplines. The broad coverage of topics in addition to new chapters presents an engagement with contemporary issues, resulting in a valuable teaching aid.
This second edition brings together a diverse range of leading international scholars with contributors from Australia, Puerto Rico, the USA, Guatemala, Germany, Sri Lanka, Botswana, the UK, South Sudan, Mexico, South Korea, Canada, and more. The second edition of this Handbook remains a key resource for undergraduates, postgraduates, and researchers across multidisciplinary backgrounds including medicine, health and social care, sociology, and anthropology.
