Applying sociology to the field of health in simple prose is an art which authors and editors of this introductory text achieved in their first edition (1993) to reviewers' acclaim. In this second edition they are masters. Writing for students of nursing and other health care fields, the authors relate their body of health sociology knowledge to the social, political and economic realities of contemporary Britain. They make it plain that understanding these interrelationships is fundamental to sound clinical and community-based practice.
