Health and disease have become major subjects for investigation, comment and debate. Health and Disease: A Reader is an interdisciplinary collection of articles which reflect the varied and sometimes controversial perspectives within these debates.

* the third edition of a best-selling and widely used textbook

* revised and updated, with a range of new articles

* a unique collection of articles, including extracts from 'classic' texts, specially commissioned articles and many articles which are often unavailable elsewhere

* grouped into seven key areas, with editorial introductions which provide a context and guide to the main themes, the articles and their authors

* the reader for Open University course U205 Health and Disease

* specifically designed with the needs of students and teachers in mind

* an essential teaching tool and resource

Health and Disease: A Reader will be essential reading for all students and teachers of health studies, nursing, medicine, social policy, social work and sociology.
