9780895032782: Political and Economic Determinants of Population Health and Well-being: Controversies and Developments (Policy, Politics, Health and Medicine Series)

The field of social inequalities in health continues its vigorous growth in the early years of the 21st century. This volume, following in the footsteps of Vicente Navarro's edited collection The Political Economy of Social Inequalities, is a compilation of recent contributions to the areas of social epidemiology, health disparities, health economics, and health services research. The overarching theme is to describe and explain the evergrowing health inequalities across social class, race, and gender, as well as neighborhood, city, region, country, and continent. The approach of this book is distinctly multi-, trans-, and interdisciplinary: the fields of public health, population health, epidemiology, economics, sociology, political science, philosophy, medicine, and history are all represented here.

From the Publisher:

INTENDED AUDIENCE Public health scholars and practitioners, social epidemiologists, social scientists interested in health issues including sociologists, political scientists, anthropologists, historians, economists, and health psychologists.

From the Inside Flap:

IN PRAISE OF "Political and Economic Determinants of Population Health and Well-Being is a superb compendium of research and debate on a question of fundamental importance—the relationship between social inequality and human well-being. It should convince all serious scholars that the study of class, race, gender, and other forms of inequality should be at the center of the agenda of public health research in the 21st century." —Erik Olin Wright, Vilas Distinguished Professor, University of Wisconsin

"This remarkable collection explores, from many perspectives, some of the most crucial problems of social policy of the coming years, not least in the United States. These penetrating essays range from theoretical and analytic dissection of fundamental moral, political, and economic issues to close investigation of a wide variety of critically important cases. For those concerned about what lies ahead—and what we can and should do about it—the collection is not only valuable but indispensable." —Noam Chomsky, Professor Emeritus, MIT

"It was fascinating for me to go through this mine of information, analysis, and interpretation; to find a rigorous academic documentation interlaced with rejections of injustice; to understand how often the health effects of class, gender, race, and social background are concealed; to see the extent to which conservative assumptions are contradicted by strong evidence; to verify the positive health effects of the work of labor unions; to see how many groups defend health as a public good; and to gain so many ideas and insights for research and for action.

Last year, the International Bioethics Committee of UNESCO declared: ‘Health has a double moral value, because it is essential for the quality of life and for life itself, and is instrumental as a condition for freedom. The inequality between rich and poor—at the level of individuals, communities, and nations—is increasingly deeply felt in the area of health and healthcare, thereby contributing to the desperation and injustice that prevail and continue to increase in other h ealth-related fields such as food, income, and education.’ This book provides the best analysis of these conditions, the broadest description of the realities in the United States and worldwide, and the stimulus for further research and action." —Giovanni Berlinguer, University of Rome, Italy
