From the Publisher"This new edition continues to have an accessible style much neededby those students of health care new to sociology. The selectedtopics are tackled from a practitioner's perspective, withquestions at the end of each chapter to help explore and apply thematerial in more detail. A new chapter tackling the impact ofglobalization is welcomed. This is an ideal textbook for studentsof all branches of nursing and midwifery, particularly in the earlyyears, or for those revisiting the underpinning disciplinessupporting nursing practice. A relevant, enjoyable read supportedby good references and recommendations for further reading."
Jane Alderton, University of Brighton
"This clearly written introduction to sociology demonstrates therelevance of the subject to nursing. After considering socialdivisions in relation to health and health care, the book thenexplores where and how health care takes place and, finally, givesan overview of health and related government policy."
