Canada's universal health-care system has been a boon for many, but it has not come without costs, both financial and in greater hegemony gained by allopathic medicine. Nonetheless, other alternative medical practices have maintained and even grown in influence, including chiropractic, naturopathy, and especially in Ontario, midwifery. The role of nurses in the medical care system is examined at length, as is the extensive and profit-motivated impact of the pharmaceutical and medical device industries. Numerous tables and figures detail everything from occupational diseases to women in medicine, and many special interest boxes describe such significant actors in medical history such as Tommy Douglas and Banting and Best, and landmark events such as the Grange Inquiry into deaths at the Hospital for Sick Children in Ontario and the chemical disaster in Bhopal, India that killed thousands and maimed many more. The second edition of Dr. Clarke's important work on the sociology of health, illness and medicine, which includes extensive updating and three new chapters, emphasizes the changes in our society and how those changes affect our ideas about our own physical and emotional well-being.

Juanne Nancarrow Clarke is Professor of Sociology at Wilfrid Laurier University in Waterloo, Ontario.Review:
"The case studies, examples, questions that begin each chapter, moments when the author speaks personally - all go a considerable distance to capture attention and imagination, and offer the kind of concrete 'ways in' to broader topics that many students need". --Chris Sinding, McMaster
