Formatted Abstract/Summary
In this opening chapter we overview a range of tensions and terminology in the field of health education. We specifically explore the following notions, which authors in this book take up in their chapters in diverse contexts: healthism and risk; health fascism; neoliberalism and the relationship between health education and physical education. First, however, we explore the messy terrain surrounding the terms "health promotion" and "health education".
