Texte du rabat

'... a very useful addition to teaching material in the medical sociology/health studies field that will also be of value for teachers and students in women's studies.'
- Mary Ann Elston, Royal Holloway University of London, UK

'... Established wisdom about gender inequalities is due for critical questioning. This authoritative and challenging collection ... from some of the most respected names in the field ... will be essential reading for students and researchers in gender studies and medical sociology.'
- Professor Mildred Blaxter, University of East Anglia, UK

This state-of-the-art collection reflects critically upon the current status of our knowledge about gender inequalities in health and develops an agenda for future research. Leading experts address a range of themes that are central to the development of the field. These include recent theoretical and methodological developments in sociology and social policy, and the significance of changes in gender relations following wide-scale economic and social changes with respect to the mental and physical health status of men and women. The collection focuses upon gender and health within industrialized nations including Britain, North America, Western and Eastern Europe. It will be of particular interest to students and practitioners of sociology, health policy, health studies and gender studies.
