Description - The Social Context of Health and Health Work by Linda J. Jones

The Social Context of Health and Health Work breaks new ground by linking together sociology of health and social policy perspectives. Linda Jones argues that health and health work cannot be understood in isolation. Patterns of disease, illness, treatment and provision are crucially influenced by class, race, gender, age and disability. Conflicts over health policies reflect fundamental debates about the purpose of welfare. The writer draws on her specialist knowledge of developing and teaching Project 2000 and health studies courses, and on her recent experience of writing distance learning materials, to create a book which encourages critical thinking and supports study.
