Product Overview

Drawing on a range of recent literature in the field, this innovative book brings together and develops a range of sociological, anthropological and health policy perspectives on health and illness. Going beyond existing texts, it explores new and exciting theories of embodiment in relation to the ritual drama of illness, medical technologies, the life course and the representation of health and illness. Theoretical points are backed up with empirical examples throughout, ensuring an accessible discussion. Interdisciplinary but comprehensive in its approach, it is important reading for all students interested in, or involved with, health and illness.
