Illness and Culture in the Postmodern Age - David B. Morris

University of California Press, 1998, Hardback in Dustwrapper..
Condition: Very Good+ — in Very Good Dust Wrapper. A little rubbing to the top edges of the dust wrapper.

From the cover: “We become ill in ways our parents and grandparents did not, with diseases unheard of and treatments undreamed of by them. Illness has changed in the postmodern era — roughly the period since World War II — as dramatically as technology, transportation, and the texture of everyday life. Exploring these changes, David B. Morris tells the fascinating story, or stories, of what goes into making the postmodern experience of illness different, perhaps unique. Even as he decries the overuse and misuse of the term postmodern, he shows how brightly ideas of illness, health, and postmodernism illuminate one another in late-twentieth-century culture.
