This book is a study of disciplines and their specialities. It poses sociological questions about the formation of intellectual fields and their social relations, and offers an in-depth, historical study of one of the largest specialities of the discipline of sociology - the sociology of health and medicine - across three countries: the United States of America, Britain and Australia. Employing a radical new theory of disciplines, this book reveals unexpected connections between the ideas of sociologists and the context they work within. It answers questions about where they work, who they cite and collaborate with, and highlights distinct differences in the practice of sociology from one country to the next. In doing so, this book offers evidence of the effects of sweeping changes to the university sector and the global publishing industry on the working lives of sociologists, not least the impact of commercial research sponsorship on the knowledge they produce.

About the Author:

FRAN COLLYER Sociologist at the University of Sydney, Australia, National Convenor of the Health Section of The Australian Sociological Association, a member of the Health Governance Network, and former editor of the Health Sociology Review. She has previously published Public Enterprise Divestment: Australian Case Studies.

Review:

"This handsomely produced book provides a muscular reworking of past studies of disciplines and medical sociology at a time when "professors are increasingly marginalized" (p. 71). Universities are no longer envisioned as centers of scholarship but as institutions run by professional managers for training highly skilled workers and for producing intellectual capital. Given what she found in her survey, some serious discussions about the role, values, and functions of both the specialty and discipline would be timely." - Donald W. Light, American Journal of Sociology 119(1)

"Mapping the Sociology of Health and Medicine is unique and fascinating and highly recommended." - Stephanie Doris Short, Health Sociology Review
