Health, Illness, and Society, Second Edition provides a comprehensive yet concise introduction to medical sociology. In his accessible style, Steven Barkan covers health and illness behaviors, the social determinants of illness, the health professions and health care system in the U.S., and how the U.S. system compares to that of other countries. The book also critically examines the achievements and limitations of the Affordable Care Act and other recent health care reform efforts. Each chapter opens with learning questions to guide the student and “Health and Illness in the News” cases that apply each chapter’s contents to contemporary events. Chapter summaries reinforce key ideas and “Give it Some Thought” boxes emphasize critical thinking.
