《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.

《全球化迷思》

clip_image001作者:保羅‧赫斯特(Paul Hirst),格拉罕‧湯普森(Grahame Thompson)  著

 

在「全球化」這個名詞與概念,儼然已成了新的魔咒的此刻,Paul Hirst & Grahame Thompson合著的《全球化迷思》(Globalization in Question)能被翻譯出來,對台灣知識界誠屬重大的貢獻,可供我們作為另一種不同但更深刻思考的起點。

兩位傑出的作者,一位以思想以方法論嚴謹著稱,一位嫻熟於政治經濟學,聯手寫作了這本傑出的著作,它是迄今為止,我讀到最精簡扼要,且最具先驅性的批判之作。許多後來有關「全球化」的批判之作,都可以從此書裡找到源起。如果要用最簡短的話為此書定位,或許可以說,它乃是一本探究「全球化論述之形成」,從而尋找其破綻之精粹之作。

目前的世界經濟毫無疑問的是已進入了一個新的結構重編期,台灣在這個可能出現的新結構裡,並不必然會像在「冷戰經濟結構」時一樣得到利益。對結構問題多作思考,對「全球化論述」的形成及其盲點多所觀照,當有了更多「知識」,或許我們始有可能參與到「全球化」這個論域的「知識遊戲」中。南方朔〈中文版序兼導讀〉

《解讀社會政策》

clip_image001作者:阿卡克 (Alcock, Peter) 著

 

本書內容有大部分的主題和議題都包括社會政策研究,最主要是介紹學生認識當前的理論與意識型態論辯、服務領域、重要議題。所有作者的撰述,深有洞見,並按照大學生程度編寫,旨在讓學生熟習社會政策研究這門學科,在大學期間提供學習社會政策的學生實用性的幫助。而各章簡要的進階讀物導讀,更指出進一步深入研究該章討論議題的文獻。對那些不是主修社會政策的其他科系(例如社會學、政治學與應用社會科學),或相關領域(如社會工作、護理與健康研究、管理或犯罪學)專業課程的學生也很有價值,是一本具權威性且精簡扼要的手邊書。

《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."

《健康、疾病與醫療:醫療社會學新論》

clip_image001作者:葉肅科 著

 

本書所以稱為「醫療社會學新論」,並非在書名上標新立異,而是反映某些新事實:
1.新概念:重新定義健康、疾病與醫療等概念;
2.新方法:最大特點在於將範圍擴展到醫療以外、整體醫療保健體系,甚至一切和健康與疾病問題有關的領域;
3.新視野:一種融入更新近、更多元的健康與疾病社會學視野;
4.新趨勢:一種更貼近個人、社會與生活的發展。
本書的撰寫力求兼顧國際性與本土性、理論性與應用性、科學性與通俗性,適用於大專院校相關課程的教學,可讓學生對於健康、疾病與醫療研究領域有更深入地瞭解。當然,研究社會科學的醫療專業人員也將發現這是一本實用的書。衷心期盼本書的出版能對讀者有所助益,也讓醫療社會學新論的知識,能為庶民日常生活帶來一些樂活氛圍與健康活力。

《全球化與臺灣社會:人權、法律與社會學的觀照》

clip_image002作者:朱柔若 著

 

英國社會學家安東尼‧紀登斯主張全球化透過時空延伸、去鑲嵌化、與反思能力三股現代化的主要動力,「將社會關係從在地的互動脈絡中拔起,然後在時空中重構」。無法自外於世界體系之外的臺灣,在全球化動力的推促下,採行勞動市場彈性化的策略、改行民主政治、講求基本人權、主張性別平等,似乎也正朝向某種單一、多元、又共通的整體發展。在這個背景下,本書首先以全球化與勞工、人權、與法律開場,依序檢視全球化與民主法治、全球化與跨國流動、全球化與性別平權、以及全球化與醫療人權等面向下的多重議題,平實檢討臺灣社會在全球化的衝擊之下所展現的多元面貌與所面對的多元議題。

《後工業機會 一個批判性的經濟社會學論述》

clip_image001作者:卜洛克(Fred Block)著 鄭陸霖, 吳泉源譯

 

時序跨入後工業,在充滿開放與彈性生機的數位時代裡,我們腳底踩著的是可以讓創意自由奔馳、讓工作╱休閒更加豐足而有意義的寶藏。挖掘與把握這些讓我們的社會生活更為美好的關鍵,在於我們是否能夠跳脫舊思維的束縛,以釋放出更多創新的「經濟想像」。

Fred Block 在本書中直接挑戰新自由主義經濟學的核心概念,諸如勞動、資本和市場等,拆解宰制我們時代思維的自由市場迷思,讓我們在民主深化的社會裡,重新省思經濟究為何物,透視後工業資本主義所潛藏的諸多可能性,以及達成所謂「質性成長」更具人性的制度安排與經濟組織──這是我們引進《後工業機會》一書的脈絡。

《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》

clip_image001 

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.
