about this item

This compelling work offers new ways of thinking about the construction of health as a core value in contemporary society. The book examines how the concept of health carries with it important moral, political and economic understandings and is employed in arguments about how people should think and behave. The discussion is linked to notions of evidence and ethics. The chapters contain a range of case study material, covering topics such as cancer, smoking, e-cigarettes, addiction, genital cutting and obesity. Written in a clear and engaging style, it will be of interest to students and scholars in medical anthropology, public health and related fields.
