"With an impressive grasp of developments in a number of adjacent areas, Ellen Annandale takes us through key issues in the sociology of health and medicine. What makes the book particularly impressive, however, is the sure way in which the author frames these topics in terms of wider developments in sociology and society." Gareth Williams, Deputy Director of Public Health Research and Resource Center, University of Salford "This book fills an urgent need for an up--to--date text for students of medical sociology. It is done in a masterly fashion, with an authoritative overview of the most exciting current debates. Teachers of the sociology of health and medicine will be grateful for this book. It provides them with an expert and well--organized theoretical core for the subject. Students will find it entirely clear, interesting and illuminating." Professor Mildred Blaxter, School of Health Policy and Practice, University of East Anglia
