From the Publisher:

This thorough revision of the best-selling medical sociology text provides a contemporary account of medical sociology, grounded in current research and sociological theory.

From the Back Cover:

Key Benefit: The major objective of this best-selling book since its inception has been to introduce the medical sociology by reflecting the most recent and relevant ideas, concepts, themes, and research findings in the field. Key Topics: The Seventh Edition continues this approach with coverage of self-care, the evolution of medical practice, the dramatic decline of the professional power of physicians, the aftermath of the Clinton administration's attempt at health reform, rising mortality in the formerly socialist states, doctor-patient relations and technology, alternative medicine and the rise of infectious diseases and what this development means for medical sociology.
