Books By Author Simon J. Williams
Politics of Sleep, Hardback (March 2011)
Why has sleep become increasingly politicized in contemporary society? This book provides an account of the politics of sleep in the late modern age. The future of sleep has become contested and uncertain: something to be defended, downsized or even perhaps (one day) done away with altogether.
Sleep and Society, Paperback (June 2005)
Exploring the sociological aspects of sleep and their links to health debates, this text discusses why sleep has been so neglected in sociological literature, examining a range of significant issues.
Health, Medicine and Society, Hardback (February 2000)
This text brings together a range of eminent international scholars to reflect upon matters of health, medicine and society at the turn of the century.
Lived Body, Paperback (October 1998)» View all books by Simon J. Williams
This text critically examines the notion of human embodiment in both classical and contemporary thought. An "embodied" sociology is proposed, one which makes embodiment central rather than peripheral, and puts minds back into bodies, bodies back into society, and society back into the body.
