Condition: Very Good. A little rubbed at the head and tail of spine. Text bright and tight.

The central theme running through this book is the essentially 'social' nature of health. This embraces the way medical knowledge emerged out of a specific set of historical and intellectual circumstances, and the shaping of the health professions by the cultural and political milieu of the nineteenth century.. In this accessible text the complex relationships between inequality/ race, gender and other social divisions are examined and related to changes in health care. Problems central to the delivery of health care are highlighted and linked to challenges to established health-care professions and systems. 180pp. Index. Bibliography.
