Format: Paperback
This textbook provides a glimpse at healthcare beyond the political debate. It gives readers an introduction to concepts such as: Epidemiology, Effects of Class on Healthcare, Doctor-Patient Interactions, and even the Role of Physicians in society. One aspect I found particularly interesting was the section on hospital organization, which describes a type of class system within these large healthcare organizations. This book acts as a great primer for healthcare in general, and the role of medicine within our society. It is a great book for health care providers and anyone interested in studying healthcare.

I am currently applying to med school and I think this book does an amazing job in guiding the reader through the current sociological issues in the field of medicine. Brilliant piece of work!

I really don't feel like typing anything here, but the book was really great and it wasn't a miserable read.

This book was a required book for a class in medical sociology. I has some very good points in human behaviour and public health.

The book was very informative with interesting concepts.

This is a wonderful book. However... Make sure you have up to date glasses if you need them. The print is smaller, and not very bold. If your eyes are not where they should be, read this in the DAYTIME! I only need it for a 7 week Med Soc class, and back it goes.

Every Summary page,for every chapter (except Chapters1-3)was ripped out of the book.
I didn't notice until I was on Chapter 4. The summaries written by this author were a valuable piece of informaion, and also contained the last page of the chapter. I hope this seller is notified!
