《An introduction to the sociology of health and illness》

clip_image001作者:Kevin White 著


The main purpose of this book is to demonstrate that disease is socially produced and distributed. Becoming sick and unhealthy is not the result of individual misfortune or an accident of nature. It is a consequence of the social, political and economic organization of society.

In developing this thesis, the book systematically introduces students to the major sociological explanations of the role and functions of medical explanations of disease. For example, Marxists focus on the way the organization of production produces sickness and disease. Parsonian sociology demonstrates how medicine acts to control deviance. Foucauldian sociology indicates how medicine constructs categories of `normal' behaviour and acts to enforce them. While, for feminists, medical knowledge is permeated with thinly disguised patriarchal assumptions about the nature and appropriate social roles for women.

The book situates the student securely in the literature and provides a guide to the strengths and weaknesses of the major sociological approaches. It draws out the essential features of the major sociological contributions and elucidates how an appreciation of the dynamics of class, gender, ethnicity and the sociology of knowledge challenges medical power.

Comprehensive, reliable and written with the needs of undergraduates firmly in mind, the book will be of interest to students of Medical Sociology and Medicine.

《Health and Illness in a Changing Society》

clip_image002作者:Michael Bury 著


Health and illness are intensely personal matters. It seems self evident that health is a basic necessity of the "good life," though it is often taken for granted. Illness, on the other hand challenges our sense of security and may introduce acute anxiety into our lives. Health and Illness in a Changing Society provides a lively and critical account of the impact of social change on the experience of health and illness. It also examines the different sociological perspectives that have been used to analyze health matters. While some of the ideas developed in the last twenty years remain relevant to social research in health today, many are in need of urgent revision.

《Medical Sociology:Major Themes in Health and Social Welfare》

clip_image002Edited by Graham Scambler


Medical sociology was first recognizable as a distinct area of study in the 1950s and is now probably the largest specialized area of sociology. This collection comprises a comprehensive statement of the history, current concerns and relevance of medical sociology to an understanding of health and health care worldwide. The articles included are genuinely international in two important respects: they represent the best of contemporary scholarship worldwide, and they have applicability to all types of society and health care systems.

A general introduction in the first volume provides a review of the development and state of medical sociology internationally as well as a rationale for the collection as a whole. Each of the four volumes also has its own introduction, and each of the four sections within each volume is preceded by a brief rationale.

《Testing Women, Testing the Fetus: The Social Impact of Amniocentesis in America》

clip_image001作者:Rapp, Rayna 著


Act as a moral philosopher of the limits, adjudicating the standards guarding entry into the human community." She illuminates the dense social and cultural context in which such decision making takes place—cultural ideas of maternal responsibility and which types of disability are acceptable, white middle class women's concern about being "selfish," Spanish-speaking women's concern with fetal suffering, multiethnic working-class concerns with how a disabled child will affect other family members, and new immigrants' fears about how such a child might jeopardize the family's ability to assimilate. Rapp also conveys the importance of religion, in providing not only spiritual direction but also social and material resources that affect these decisions. She vividly conveys how for women living with the real risks of poverty—dangerous neighborhoods, unemployment, depression, substandard schools, family members involved with drugs—"the very idea that risks are measurable and individual may be overwhelmed by other assessments women make" about more diffuse, socially-based risks to prenatal health. As she sketches this "practical epidemiology," Rapp notes, ". . . ironically, the very populations most at risk—less privileged, ‘older,' women having more pregnancies with more partners . . . may be the least likely to live by the numbers precisely because they understand their risks to be spread over a greater territory than chromosome analysis in pregnancy describes."

The final two chapters provide a "women-centered analysis" of what happens when a chromosomal anomaly is found. Rapp draws on interviews with 38 families of children with Down syndrome and participant observation with two parent support groups to describe the special pleasures and burdens of mothering these children. Here again we see how "the discursive and material resources available for families of disabled children vary greatly along the social fault lines."

《The Making of the Unborn Patient: A Social Anatomy of Fetal Surgery》

clip_image002作者:Casper, Monica J.著


This is the first book to examine the emergence of fetal surgery as a new medical specialty and the debut of the unborn patient. Since its inception, fetal surgery has been highly controversial; it is risky, expensive, and fraught with peril for both women and their fetuses. It is proceeding rapidly without careful reflection about what it means and without public debate about its consequences. Drawing on a wide range of sources, Monica Casper shows how biomedical work has intersected with reproductive politics for three decades to generate new cultural meanings of fetuses, women, and medicine itself. In this ethnographic study of the social, cultural, and historical aspects of fetal surgery, Casper addresses the medical, political, and ethical questions raised by these still largely experimental procedures.

《The imperative of health : public health and the regulated body》


作者:Pro. Deborah Lupton 著


In an exciting reappraisal of public health and health promotion in contemporary societies, Deborah Lupton shows that health cannot be understood simply as the presence or absence of disease - rather, it represents a moral imperative that is embedded in social and cultural norms and expressed in public policies.

Using socio-cultural and political theory, the author analyzes the implications of the new social theories for the study of health promotion and communication. Combining sociological, anthropological, historical and cultural studies approaches, she analyzes the symbolic nature of public health practices and explores their underlying meanings and assumptions.

Key topics include:

- the history and emergence of the public health movement

- contemporary health promotion and public health strategies

- risk discourse and diagnostic testing

- the use of mass media and advertising in health promotion

- bodies, pleasures and the practices of self in response to health promotion

The Imperative of Health seeks to explore the ways in which some of the knowledge and practices of public health and health promotion have been developed and articulated, how they are justified, what ends they seek and their alliances and dependencies.

This accessible book will be essential reading for students and academics in the sociology of health and illness, health communication, cultural studies, mass communication, medical anthropology and sociology, nursing and public health.
