Synopses & ReviewsPlease note that used books may not include additional media (study guides, CDs, DVDs, solutions manuals, etc.) as described in the publisher comments.
Book News Annotation:
A dozen anomalous findings from a number of disciplines about the determinants of health, some new and some long familiar among small communities of specialists, but all challenging conventional views of how health is gained, lost, recovered, and maintained. The topics include the social and cultural matrix, genetics and other biological pathways, quality of care, regulating medicine, and perspectives for the future. Accessible to readers with little or no background in medicine.
Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
Each topical chapter in this volume crystallizes the findings of a five-year study, under the auspices of the Population Health Program of the Canadian Institute for Advanced Research, that probed the links between social hierarchy, the macroenvironmental factors in illness patterns, the quality of the microenvironmental, and other determinants of health. In its aggregate, this volume will prove essential to an understanding of the underlying public health issues for the next several decades.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 335-368) and index.
