About the Author

Judith Green has degrees in anthropology and sociology, and a Ph D in the sociology of heath. She has taught research methods to a wide range of students over the last 30 years, including undergraduate, postgraduate and doctoral students and health professionals from nursing, medicine, public health and sociology. She is currently Professor of Sociology of Health at King’s College London, and has held posts at the London School of Hygiene and Medicine and London South Bank University. Judith has broad substantive interests in the sociology of health and health services, and has researched and published on primary care, professional identity, accidental injury, public understanding of risk and the relationships between transport and wellbeing. She is currently co-editor of the journal Critical Public Health. Other publications include Risk and Misfortune: the social construction of accidents (1997, UCL Press); Critical Perspectives in Public Health, co-edited with Ronald Labonté (2008, Routledge) and Analysing Health Policy: a sociological approach (1998, Longman), also co-authored with Nicki Thorogood.


Nicki Thorogood’s first degree was in sociology and social anthropology, and she has a Ph D in the sociology of health from the University of London. She has over 30 years experience of teaching undergraduate and postgraduate students. Before coming to LSHTM (London School of Hygiene and Tropical Medicine) in 1999 she held posts at Middlesex University and at Guy’s King’s and Thomas’s School of Medicine and Dentistry (GKT).

Her research interests are primarily in qualitative research into aspects of ‘identity’, e.g. ethnicity, gender, disability and sexuality and in the sociology of the body. She is also interested in the intersection of mental health with public health and health promotion. She supervises several research degree students. She is Series Editor, with Rosalind Plowman, of the Understanding Public Health series of textbooks published by Open University Press.
