Book Excerpt : Extremely student friendly and completely up to date, THE SOCIOLOGY OF HEALTH, ILLNESS, AND HEALTH CARE: A CRITICAL APPROACH, 6e delivers a comprehensive, cutting-edge overview that includes both micro and macro-level topics. The text exposes the ethical dilemmas of modern health care and challenges students to think analytically, while its unique critical perspective enables readers to question their previously held beliefs about health and illness. Dr. Weitz’s thorough discussions of health and medicine emphasize the effects of power and how social forces create illness, affect our ideas about the meaning of illness and disability, structure health care institutions, and impact the work and social position of health care workers. The text focuses on health within the United States, but also examines global health care issues. It uses sociological perspective to thoroughly examine the social construction and cultural forces of health and illness, the social determinants and consequences of health status, and how health care systems operate in other parts of the world.
