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