AUTHORS: Weitz, Rose - ©2013
Extremely student friendly and completely up to date, THE SOCIOLOGY OF HEALTH, ILLNESS, AND HEALTH CARE: A CRITICAL APPROACH, 6e delivers a comprehensive, cutting-edge overview that exposes the ethical dilemmas of modern health care and challenges readers to think analytically. Offering a sociological perspective on current topics, its unique critical perspective enables you to question your previously held beliefs about health and illness. Dr. Weitz’s thorough discussions of health and medicine emphasize the effects of power and how social forces create illness, affect our ideas about the meaning of illness and disability, structure health care institutions, and impact the work and social position of health care workers. While the text focuses on health within the United States, it also examines global health care issues.
