Review:

"The book makes fascinating reading--not because it offers a complete discourse on health promotion from a sociological perpsective, but more because it brings together all the facts and follies, all the reational arguments and the prejudices, and all of the inconsistencies of some of the policies advanced in the name of health promotion, together with the arguments used by those who have shaped the ideological debate on the health promotion movement.... Th is book offers a sound bais on whihc to reassess thge current position of health promotion.."
-"Lnacelot
