Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item


Meredith Turshen writes in the progressive public health tradition. She examines basic concepts and practices underlying conventional approaches to disease and offers an alternative framework based on the concept that health and illness are socially produced. She draws on international and domestic material to show the limits of current approaches to public health and incorporates theoretical contributions from Marxism and feminism. Using contemporary and historical accounts of great moments and great debates in public health in the United States and abroad, Turshen exposes and analyzes the failure to improve health even when a specific program like smallpox vaccination succeeds.
