Description Medicine, Health and Society de Hannah Bradby:

Sharp, bold and engaging, this book provides a contemporary account of why medical sociology matters in our modern society. Combining theoretical and empirical perspectives, and applying the pragmatic demands of policy, this timely book explores society's response to key issues such as race, gender and identity to explain the relationship between sociology, medicine and medical sociology. Each chapter includes an authoritative introduction to pertinent areas of debate, a clear summary of key issues and themes and dedicated bibliography. Chapters include: * social theory and medical sociology * health inequalities * bodies, pain and suffering * personal, local and global. Brimming with fresh interpretations and critical insights this book will contribute to illuminating the practical realities of medical sociology. Hannah Bradby's research on how ethnicity and racism intervene in the social relations of health has been published in various journals including 'Social Science and Medicine' and 'Sociological Research Online'. She co-edits the journal 'Ethnicity and Health' and is the 'Sociology of Health and Illness' monograph series editor. Hannah has taught both medics and sociologists at the University of Warwick since 2000, employing various representations of health, illness and suffering including written (memoire, letters, reportage, fiction, clinical notes, empirical research) and spoken forms (evidence from clinicians, patients and former patients, in various languages, and sometimes mediated by trained interpreters). She has worked on the core medical school curriculum and special study modules and has collaborated with students to publish books of their own sociological work, both written and photographic.
