Overview

This reader documents the growing debate about health and wellbeing. Some 'new voices' speak from neglected lay experiences and values; others are challenging medical perspectives 'from within'. Competing perspectives on health beseige familiar areas of everyday life: our bodies, the home and workplace. Health goals are increasingly debated on wider agendas in social planning: in the marketing of lifestyles, in transport policies, and in the appraisal of alternative futures. But prospects for health are bound up with social equity, international justice, and global sustainability - as well as with the 'journey of hope' of the individuals who struggle to survive.
