Review:

'Be prepared for a robust account of ways in which society causes sickness, misery, and death in reading Peter Morrall's book Sociology and Health. He not only outlines how society makes people unhealthy, but encourages the reader (with examples) to take what he calls 'moral action' to make social conditions healthier - and then e-mail him about it. This is clearly a different kind of textbook. It draws the reader into the field of health sociology and encourages the person to take positive action to help produce a healthier society.'

William C. Cockerham, University of Alabama at Birmingham , USA

Synopsis:

This lively, introductory text provides nurses with the foundations of a sociological understanding of health issues that they will find of great help in thinking about their work and the role of their profession. It explains the key sociological theories and debates with humour and imagination in a way that will encourage an inquisitive and reflective approach on the part of any student who engages with the text. With individual chapters covering imagination, health, science, power, professions, medicalization, inequality, sex, madness and death, "Sociology and Health" is organized so that the student moves from the main sociological perspectives through the key concepts underpinning nursing, to sociological approaches and themes which constantly recur in the experience of nursing.
