About the Author:

Hannah Bradby’s research on how ethnicity and racism intervene in the social relations of health has been published in various journals including ‘Social Science and Medicine’ and ‘Sociological Research Online’.  She co-edits the journal ‘Ethnicity and Health’ and is the ‘Sociology of Health and Illness’ monograph series editor.

Hannah has taught both medics and sociologists at the University of Warwick since 2000, employing various representations of health, illness and suffering including written (memoire, letters, reportage, fiction, clinical notes, empirical research) and spoken forms (evidence from clinicians, patients and former patients, in various languages, and sometimes mediated by trained interpreters). She has worked on the core medical school curriculum and special study modules and has collaborated with students to publish books of their own sociological work, both written and photographic.

Building on observations by the late Meg Stacey (the first female professor at the University of Warwick) on medical sociology’s lack of attention to war as a public health problem Hannah co-edited (with Gillian Hundt) a collection entitled ‘Global Perspectives on War, Gender and Health’ (2010, Avebury). ‘Medical Sociology: An introduction’ (2009, Sage) seeks to interpret sociological criticism of medicine and insights into the experience of illness for medical students.

Review:

In this timely book, Hannah Bradby brings together classic sociological writings and the latest research on the links between medicine, health and society. Bradby discusses a range of important issues with three main themes: patterns of illness in populations, health and illness in everyday life, and the promise and pitfalls of modern health care systems. Bradby offers insightful analysis as well as synthesis in areas such as inequalities, gender and ethnicity, where she is a leading expert. Throughout the book, Bradby′s command of her material is impressive, and expressed in an approachable and lively style. Highly commended - a key work for all students of medical sociology
