Contemporary Health Studies: An Introduction provides a
lively and accessible introduction to the current issues and key
debates in this area. It contains a strong, up-to-date, global,
social-scientific focus examining the human experience of health
particularly emphasizing its social, political and environmental
dimensions.



The book?s diverse content is usefully divided into three
main parts. Part one sets the scene looking closely at the
definition of health studies and the debates surrounding the
concept of health. Part two explores different disciplines
underpinning Health Studies including chapters such as sociology,
psychology, anthropology and health promotion. Part three of the
book explores the determinants of health and contains chapters on
individual factors influencing health, policy influences on health,
public health and the global context of health. Each chapter:






  • Opens with a list of key learning outcomes;




  • Contains topical learning tasks;




  • Poses questions for reflection and debate;




  • Provides an in-depth case study to summarise the key arguments
    made.




Carefully chosen tables, figures and photographs bring the text to
life, whilst the companion web-site offers additional learning
resources for both students and lecturers alike.



Contemporary Health Studies: An Introduction is an essential
guide for undergraduate health students written by three authors
who have a wealth of teaching experience in this subject area.
Their book will inspire readers to consider the human experience of
health within contemporary global society as it is mediated by
individual, societal and global contexts.
