OUP Australia & New Zealand, Jul 2, 2009 - Health & Fitness - 564 pages
Second Opinion is the leading health sociology textbook for undergraduate students. Accompanied by a comprehensive online resource centre, this strong teaching text introduces students to the theories, concepts, and contexts that are needed to understand the issues confronting health sociology. Over a decade since the first edition was published, this new edition has undergone a significant revision to thoroughly match today's student and lecturer needs. Such revisions include, new chapters on Global Health, Workplace Health, Rural Health, Mental Illness, The Illness Experience, and Media and Health; a two-colour layout with an expanded range of pedagogical features; and additional online materials, including online access to chapter-relevant supplementary reading, access to chapters from the previous edition, topical case studies, and updated web links.
