9781111828790: The Sociology of Health, Illness, and Health Care: A Critical Approach

Extremely reader friendly and completely up to date, THE SOCIOLOGY OF HEALTH, ILLNESS, AND HEALTH CARE: A CRITICAL APPROACH, 6e delivers a comprehensive, cutting-edge overview and challenges readers to question previously held beliefs about health and illness. Dr. Weitz's thorough discussions of health and medicine emphasize the effects of power and how social forces create illness, affect our ideas about the meaning of illness and disability, structure health care institutions, and impact the work and social position of health care workers. While the text focuses on health within the United States, it also examines global health care issues.

About the Author:

Rose Weitz received her doctoral degree from Yale University in 1978. Since then, she has carved an exceptional record as both a scholar and a teacher.

She is also coauthor of Labor Pains: Modern Midwives and Home Birth (Yale University Press, 1988) and editor of The Politics of Women's Bodies: Appearance, Sexuality, and Behaviour (published by Oxford University Press and now in its third edition). Prof. Weitz has won two major teaching awards at Arizona State University, as well as the Pacific Sociological Associations Distinguished Contributions to Teaching Award, and she has been a finalist for other teaching awards numerous times.
