Medicine, Health and Risk: Sociological Approaches (0631194843) cover image
The sociology of risk has only recently started to influence work in the area of health, illness and medicine and has considerable explanatory potential. Medicine, Health and Risk illustrates the value of this approach by providing case studies and overviews of health risks from medical interventions, occupational practices, social and domestic life and environmental hazards.
