9781781903230: Ecological Health: Society, Ecology and Health (Advances in Medical Sociology)

Drawing on ecosystem thinking, complexity and postnormal science, Ecological Health offers a radical new way of thinking about the health issues of the 21st Century. This volume reflects on recent social scientific engagement with Ecosystem Health research and practice and sets out a vision for the future. While significant links between human health and the environment are increasingly evident, how to make sense of the interdependence of human health on natural systems is posing significant challenges. Ecological health is a new approach used by medics, public health practitioners, veterinarians, as well as social and natural scientists who study health at the nexus between human, animal and ecological systems. This volume is a reference tool offering a sociological analysis of the interrelationship between society, earth systems and health as conceptual frameworks. The authors provide methodological tools for conducting social science research that integrates social, natural and medical systems. It will appeal to a broad audience of researchers and practitioners who currently work in the arena of ecology and health and as well as those interested in expanding their research.

Maya K. Gislason - University of Sussex, UK

Review:

Editor Gislason (sociology, U. of Sussex, UK) offers this compilation on environmental contributors to health and disease, aimed toward recovering a more holistic understanding of medicine to complement the positivist approach that has been so successful at developing targeted disease treatments. The influence of nature and ecology on our well-being is explored, particularly through the experience of aboriginal peoples. Concepts of vulnerability and social justice are assessed through an ecological lens, emphasizing points of natural resource management that directly impact physical health for selected communities. The book builds to an integrated discussion of social-ecological change at the institutional level to promote healthful environment. Distributed in North America by Turpin Distribution. --Book News Inc. Portland, OR
