Review:

"The 300 pages of this book are packed with information oninternational developments in palliative care." - Community Care "This book is a must for all those working in thefield, an interesting read for others working across the spectrum of health care and core reading for students from a wide range of disciplines studying health policy, sociology and health care delivery, as wemove into the 21st century." - Information Exchange "In terms of student suitability, I would recommend the text for two main reasons. First, it is rich in detail and analysis of developments in palliative care...Second, it allows the students to see howsocial science based ideas and concepts can be applied to the 'real world'...In overall terms, this text should be a valuable resource for social scientists and practitioners alike. It's bias is towards the latter audience, but I would still urge social science students and researchers interested in death and dying to look at what, I believe, is avery informative and reasonably priced little book." - Medical Sociology News
