From the Back Cover:

Bringing together new and leading scholars in the field ofchildren’s health and illness, this book is the first todemonstrate the importance of research with children andresearch from a child perspective, in order to fully understand themeaning and impact of health and illness in children’slives.

Children, Health and Well-Being addresses threecross-cutting themes; the first theme illustrates the significanceand pervasive influence of policy and discourse in shapingunderstandings of children’s lives. The second theme focuseson health policy in action through looking at interactions betweenprofessionals, parents and children; the final theme highlightschildren’s role as health care actors, focusing on the livedexperience of children. Taken together, the themes encouragecritical reflection on contemporary and culturally specific ways ofknowing and understanding children’s health.

The book furthers theoretical understandings of the sociology ofchildren’s health and illness and encourages productivedebate amongst a wide audience, including academics, policy makers,and health-care professionals. The collection goes some way toseriously begin the important process of addressing the migrationof child health from the margins into mainstream sociology ofhealth and illness.
